4-bedroom Villas

If your kids pine for a room of their own then our four bedroom villas could suit your family well. Four bedroom villas will also appeal to groups of friends and handfuls of couples looking for more facilities and that little bit of extra space. They'll often come with one twin bedded room, giving even more flexibility.

Puri Naga Toya

Puri Naga Toya

Indonesia » Bali » Ubud

Breathtaking! Bewitching! Beyond compare! We were captivated by Villa Puri Naga Toya’s extraordinary views, and found the place so intoxicating we were reluctant to explore beyond the (beautiful) villa gardens! We loved its colonial plantation-style, hill station feel, and considered ourselves quite privileged to be staying in this much loved family home surrounded by such a wealth of antiques and art. The master bedroom is a tour de force, and its terrace-with-a-view was a favourite spot (though the decadence of the antique opium bed in the living room was a close contender). With such stupendous views beyond the windows and valuable antiques within, it’s hard to concentrate on anything else; but just wait ‘til you see the library with its fascinating collection of books on Southeast Asia!

It was Bali’s cooler season when we stayed, so we took a light wrap to take the edge off the evening chill, and used it as an excuse to enjoy the comfort of the coal-effect fire. The housekeepers cooked up a creditable pasta dish for dinner, and served a delicious breakfast in a dining area with the most stylish chairs.

This truly is a place to retreat to when you want a break from the hurley burley of corporate life. Though we were only two people, we didn’t feel out of place; it still works as a couple’s retreat, which is unusual in a four-bedroom villa. So we can imagine this working well as an artist’s or writer’s getaway, suiting couples kindling sparks of romance, and also proving popular with families. The steep steps to the octagonal bedroom (and the lack of an ensuite bathroom) may put off older family members, but will provide a sense of adventure to teens, as will the Bamboo House in a separate part of the garden. Because of the dramatic and unguarded drop-off to the Ayung river valley, we would counsel caution in bringing young children unless you’re prepared to watch them carefully (and many of the artefacts are within easy reach of toddlers’ hands). Having said that, the guests before us brought two kids under the age of four and they all loved the place.

Villa Pursang

Villa Pursang

Indonesia » Bali » Canggu area » Canggu

Villa Pursang offers the quintessential Bali holiday experience: it is a safe, comfortable, peaceful environment, yet not too far from the island’s popular beaches and towns. The large grassed garden and infinity-edge swimming pool with its adjacent thatched bale relaxation pavilion provide a beautiful focal point to the property and make the villa a great place for functions and parties, or a fabulous residence for a family holiday – with the practical advantage of having a kids’ room connected to the master bedroom. It’s suitable for most age groups, although some seniors may struggle with the stone steps that lead down to the guest bedrooms and garden (there’s no hand rail).  

We found the cook and maid to be very pleasant and professional – both speak good English. Although they live out, the cook’s hours are flexible; if you want her to stay late simply pay her overtime at her reasonable hourly rate. There is no suggestion menu but the chef is pretty capable of cooking anything from Indonesian cuisine to sandwiches, burgers and pasta and will buy the ingredients required (shopping done at no extra charge apart from a minimal amount to cover petrol ) and bring you receipts. .          

The villa has a great atmosphere at night, with its romantically floodlit garden and swimming pool. During the day the double lounger in the shade of the bale at the end of the pool was a favourite spot to relax and be served drinks in between time spent on the sun loungers around the pool working on our tans.

Villa Putih Semer

Villa Putih Semer

Indonesia » Bali » Greater Seminyak » Umalas-Kerobokan

What we loved about Villa Putih Semer were the gorgeously chic interiors, which are of the ilk that you would expect to find featured in a classy interior design magazine. The owners are passionate about food, wine, music and books, and have made this the concept of their home. The cook showcased her skills by preparing her specialty, seafood curry, which proved to be fantastic. This sophisticated villa is a rural oasis on the edge of town, where we were able to totally relax and unwind within a beautiful, natural setting with a sneaky rice field view fringed by a small river, jungle vegetation and a bamboo thicket. The villa is so peaceful, so quiet, and so private. The car and driver (included in villa rate) is a great bonus, but we found it very hard to leave the premises. There are also some simple spas in the neighbourhood but, again, for those not wanting to venture out, staff can easily arrange for massages and spa treatments administered by professional therapists (on guest account) – to be carried out on the villa’s own massage bed.

Rumi Villas - Villa Rumi (4BR)

Rumi Villas - Villa Rumi (4BR)

Indonesia » Bali » Greater Seminyak » Seminyak

Villa Rumi is quite a ‘find’. We were delighted by the sense of space, and couldn’t believe how quiet it was considering it was a hop-&-skip away from the noise and action on Jalan Laksmana.  We loved the open living area, and appreciated the privacy of the master suite, with its garden terrace and outdoor tub for alfresco bathing. But our favourite daytime space by far was the balé by the pool…and having ice-cold drinks delivered to us by delightful staff throughout the day.

We were lucky to meet the owner during our stay and found his enthusiasm quite contagious. He has put so much heart into designing and building Villa Rumi, and really understands what so many families are looking for in a holiday villa.

Villa Rumi is perfect for parents who want their kids to be safe and cared for without running themselves ragged, and who want their own retreat while being only steps away from the ‘sweetshop’ for grownups that is Seminyak. It’s great to have the option of keeping kids close by in the bedroom next door, or carving out some precious privacy by assigning them a bedroom across the pool. We think that this room configuration — and the fact that all bedrooms are equally generous in size — will also be appreciated by two small families vacationing together, and by groups of friends.

Villa Sally

Villa Sally

Indonesia » Bali » Canggu area » Canggu

When we stayed at Villa Sally two years ago we were blown away by its rural location.  Well, the area is still rural, but it’s getting more built up now, so some of the rice fields have given way to new buildings.  On the upside, there is a bit more to do in the area with some new cafes and restaurants all within walking distance.  The service of the staff was always good, but now it’s even more professional.  We were happy to see that the villa has been well maintained and is still very elegant.  In fact, now that it’s not quite so new and shiny, it feels more comfortable and homely.  There is a warmth to this elegant place that is enhanced both by the actual flames of the two fire bowls at the end of the pool, and the visual effects created by the light and swirling waters that cascade down the two water walls in the living room to resemble flames licking the walls. (Watch for this in the downstairs bathrooms as well, very romantic and guaranteed to kindle desire!)

Chom Tawan - Villa Samorna

Chom Tawan - Villa Samorna

Thailand » Phuket » Bang Tao Beach » Bang Tao

Villa Samorna is a very-well-cared-for and welcoming oasis.  Although the villa is on an estate, its position along the banks of a stream gives it a truly private and tranquil feel.  We enjoyed some lazy hours sipping drinks in the shade by the big pool, which – along with the garden – is a delight for kids.  During our brief visit we didn’t dine in, but we could have asked the villa’s long-time housekeeper Khun Aon to cook for us had we wished (extra charge applies).  We found her to be helpful and friendly and, having assisted the villa owners and many guests over the years, a fount of knowledge on the area – such as the best places to eat locally.    

We prefer being away from busy areas on holiday and in this regard Villa Samorna was the perfect choice, with the estate set along a quiet section of the beach that so far has seen little development.  Aside from a few people out on a stroll with their dogs, we didn’t come across any commercial activity at the beach in this area beyond the few simple restaurants nearby.  It’s isolated enough to enjoy your own private sunset views on the sand, and yet the five-star spas and restaurants of Laguna and vicinity are an easy five-minute drive away.  We had our own transport, which we’d recommend for guests staying here given Samorna’s location, though Khun Aom can easily arrange taxi services, too.

Samsara Estate - Villa Hale Malia

Samsara Estate - Villa Hale Malia

Thailand » Phuket » Kamala

For privacy, location and facilities Villa Hale Malia takes a lot of beating and we loved the modern architecture which is very different to other villas we’ve experienced in Thailand. However the real stand out is the view – you will be hard pressed to find anything like it.

Service is very good, discreet yet attentive and the home-cooked meals are excellent. The bathrooms are modern and clean, bedrooms comfortable with pleasant patios and views but it is the common areas which shine with cathedral style ceilings and extensive use of glass and that stunning panorama.

It’s not easy for a villa to be adaptable all types of clientele but we felt that Villa Hale Malia comes very close. For those travelling with young children, it’s perhaps not the perfect choice – there are steep drop-offs in the sloping garden and from the edge of the pool – and it’s a little too secluded for multiple trips into town. We’d recommend it more for those looking to stay in and enjoy the villa, the views and the polished service. That said, many of the owners of these villas have young families and we know they have a wonderful time. The villa is a great place for hosting a party and the excellent sound system (with speakers in all living areas, including the outside sala and brbecue pit) can be cranked up quite high without having to worry too much about disturbing the neighbours.

Samsara Estate - Villa Leelavadee

Samsara Estate - Villa Leelavadee

Thailand » Phuket » Kamala

Groups of friends and couples will adore the privacy of Leelavadee’s location and its potential for entertaining, however we felt the villa to be particularly suited to families (one or two) since it has two twin rooms which share a balcony and two larger bedroom suites. Since the bedrooms are on the lower level we felt they were given more privacy and allowed the upstairs living/dining areas to be used exclusively for relaxing and entertaining. A garden surrounds the villa, but it is steep and was used more as an alternative route to different parts of the villa than for relaxing in. The swimming pool has an infinity edge and looks towards the sea through branches that – although providing Leelavadee with lots of privacy – do somewhat disturb the views. The gym and pool table offer diversion away from the living areas so that others can relax in peace and quiet, however speakers are wired throughout the villa if a background beat is desired. The home cinema really enhances the villa’s appeal for families and movie buffs, especially as the bookshelves of the media room are filled with a large selection of DVDs as well as CDs and board games. Since the large sofas in this room can be made into an extra bed, this room can also be used as a fifth bedroom if necessary (it has its own ensuite bathroom too).

Samsara Estate - Villa Lomchoy

Samsara Estate - Villa Lomchoy

Thailand » Phuket » Kamala

Villa Lomchoy has great potential for those looking for a secluded but stylish retreat. It’s a fair distance from town but its cliff-top location is unbeatable in terms of privacy and stunning vista. We loved the living spaces, particularly outdoors around the amazing pool terrace – this has to be one of the best sunset views on the island.

The villa’s interior design is minimalist but shows both good taste and a sense of humour – we liked the oversized wooden teapot set on a bed of white pebbles on the downstairs landing and the old photo of the Shanghai Bund in the study. Other design pieces, whether the over-sized gourds or the antique bow and arrow add both a sense of fun and a refinement to the property.

Bedrooms are comfortable and full of natural light and we enjoyed the unique artwork on the walls and the individual colour schemes.  The owners have young children but the villa isn’t particularly ideal for families with straying toddlers, due to the steepness of the garden and the drop from the infinity pool – with due care however it shouldn’t pose a problem. Service from the house-keeper was friendly and helpful although her limited English made communication slightly complicated.

Samui Summit Estate - Alpha Villa

Samui Summit Estate - Alpha Villa

Thailand » Koh Samui » Choeng Mon

It's not often you get to sit with an iced drink in the sunshine and look out on 180 degrees of tropical splendour with twinkling bays left and right and palm-coated hills rising from the valley below.  At Alpha Villa you can't avoid it and the upper floor lounge and pool terrace alone is a perfect spot to spend a relaxing few days.

If you sleep in the comfortable master bedroom next to the pool, you may never bother venturing into the villa’s rather cavernous lower levels.  That's not to say guest bedrooms downstairs are disappointing - all four are quiet, private and slide open onto beautifully landscaped gardens.    

Families or groups of friends will enjoy this villa because it offers plenty of options to combine shared time with more private moments.  Gathering in the TV room on the middle floor is like a trip to a laid-back cinema and it's easy to lose track of time in there, day or night, as you recline on the comfy cushions in air conditioned bliss, catching up on your movie back log.  But up on the pool deck is still the best way to lose a day; floating in the pool or gazing at the view.     

Although there are a lot of steps to negotiate between floors (not ideal for seniors), the kids have plenty of space to explore and play safely (as long as you keep an eye on them around the pool area, which drops off sharply).  Alpha Villa is also one of the few hillside properties on Samui that's genuinely convenient for trips to the main beaches and tourist attractions (although a car will be necessary).     

Efficient but unobtrusive staff and a wide range of optional services give you the freedom to be totally independent but also to spoil yourself with in-house indulgences like a private chef or daily massage if you so choose.  This is a great location, with versatile facilities and breathtaking views, as long as you don't mind a steep drive.
