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.

Malaiwana - Villa Rodnaya

Malaiwana - Villa Rodnaya

Thailand » Phuket » Nai Thon

With spectacular views over an idyllic white-sand beach and lush tropical parkland, a contemporary, uplifting design, a private pool that reaches out to the sky, a dedicated team of staff, delicious meals prepared by the chef and facilities catering to families, the beautiful Rodnaya is what we’d call a Goldilocks villa: it blends stylish, fun and accessible features – and an enchanting location – to create a holiday home that’s just right for all.   We loved the full range of experiences to enjoy within a day at Rodnaya, from unwinding in five-star comfort and service to exploring the natural beauty of an unspoilt tropical beach just beyond our doorstep.  We had an early-morning swim in the pool, then a decadent breakfast on the terrace.  Later on, we took a stroll along the sand and munched on grilled chicken on a skewer from a beachside food vendor.  Then back up to the villa in time for sunset cocktails and an elaborate dinner of rich Thai curries, spicy fish and stir-fried veggies, all planned the day before with our chef.  Finally to bed, where the master suite offers a soft, sumptuous embrace and the promise of more fabulous sea views, just a curtain-peek away upon waking up tomorrow.

Villa Mana

Villa Mana

Indonesia » Bali » Canggu area » Canggu

We absolutely loved Villa Mana. Not only were the views amazing, its openness liberating and the design super-chic – an architectural dream – but it was also very comfortable, with so many places to lie back and relax, even when the villa is full. Sofas and loungers seemed supersized, and were the perfect accompaniments to sleeping and reading or languidly watching the farmers hard at work in their paddy fields.

We enjoyed bathing in the master bathroom with its glass roof, river-stone walls and smooth circular tub that’s big enough for two. We felt the villa was excellently set up for the extended family, large groups or even a couple of families (but do note that using the showers in the ground floor ensuites involves climbing into the tubs, which might not be ideal for some elderly guests).

The twin bedroom is conveniently located opposite the entertainment room, which is a big self-contained space with squashy sofas that could be used as much as a playroom (there’s a box full of toys plus a pool table) as a home cinema room (plenty of DVDs supplied). Sliding doors open from here onto the enclosed rear garden where there’s a meandering 2ft-deep pool that can be enjoyed by little paddlers.

The lawn at the bottom of the garden is encircled by paddy fields and felt like the stage of a Shakespearean theatre. The garden is enclosed (parents sigh of relief), and kids will just love it here. Villa Mana's staff aim to please, and they succeed. The chef is excellent and the manager is efficient and knowledgeable. With the kitchen being at the centre of the villa, we were always aware of the staff and felt that total privacy was slightly compromised (at least on the ground floor).

Villa Maya Retreat

Villa Maya Retreat

Indonesia » Bali » Tabanan

Villa Maya has a relaxed vibe with its magical jungle setting and soothing river ambiance. Although our first impression was that, because of its location, it would be hot, humid and full of mosquitoes, we were pleasantly surprised: yes, being down in the gorge means less breeze, but with the lazy river below, the sounds of running water, copious shade and the lovely colours and smells of the gardens it was all very pleasant and comfortable and exuded a lovely energy. And we hardly saw a mosquito (staff are vigilant about lighting coils in the evening). The bedrooms are all huge, maybe a little dark but great rooms and with very natural bathrooms. Two new bedroom suites (each with a private plunge pool) have been added since our first visit, making this an even more attractive proposition for a big group or family get away. The pool is a delight whilst the communal areas work really well with loads of corners to chill out and relax. Children and rivers is often not a good mix but Villa Maya is well shielded from the water by walkways and vegetation, still some care is needed. Food is selected with the chef from a suggestions menu - we found all the staff extremely willing, with a few speaking good English.

Naam Sawan

Naam Sawan

Thailand » Phuket » Cape Yamu

Staying at Villa Naam Sawan is a dream come true, and we were entranced by the spectacular views over Phang Nga Bay. Indoor spaces exude comfort beyond belief: especially attractive are the unique décor and furnishings, each with stories of their own.  The ensuite bedrooms are luxurious and spacious, and very well situated for easy access to the pool deck – where we spent many happy hours lounging on daybeds between refreshing dips in the pool, swim-up cocktails and games of billiards.  Sundowners sipped in the alfresco dining pavilion were nearly as magnificent as sunrises over the dramatic limestone karsts of Phang Nga Bay.  The warm-hearted team of staff was courteous, pleasant and kind, and prepared impressive meals worthy of top-class restaurants.  Villa Naam Sawan offered everything we were hoping for and more, and all within easy reach of many of Phuket’s best sites and attractions.

Villa Nandana

Villa Nandana

Thailand » Phuket » Natai Beach

With such a magnificent setting on the beachfront at Natai, Villa Nandana had us hooked even before we stepped across its threshold. And yet, we were bowled over again once we had a peek inside. The pitch-roofed living room with its aura of a fine summer palace, the master suite with its lavish double bathtub enveloped in marble, the inviting pool perched near the seafront – simply, wow!  

With its balance of shared spaces and ultra-private bedrooms, Nandana is a fabulous retreat for families or groups of friends. Those looking for a more transformative holiday will find that the villa facilities are perfect for designing your own wellness retreat. We could have even arranged for a personal trainer, yoga teacher or spa therapist to come to the villa and work us into fit and fighting shape had the mood taken us. But the sea-view pool, a good book to curl up with on the comfy living room sofas, and toes-in-the-sand beach walks were enough of a body and mind recovery for this family!

It’s a magical feeling to return from a long, leisurely stroll and see that the only footprints on the sand are ours. With Phuket Island getting more crowded with each passing year, we’re happy to know that such a spacious, peaceful and elegant escape can be reached within an hour of touching down at the airport. Paradise found!

Villa Napalai

Villa Napalai

Thailand » Phuket » Surin

If there was ever a villa built to lift your spirits, Villa Napalai is it. Upon entering Napalai, we were most struck by its vibrancy – so many bright colours in every room – and the stark beauty of its sheer-white chic terrace contrasting with the vivid blue of the pool, sea and sky. Then, in addition to its cheering tones, Napalai is laden with fun facilities for all ages, so many in fact that we were sadly unable to try them all on our brief stay!  Spoiled for choice, we decided to skip the gym and spa and opted for swimming and relaxing poolside, plus spending a lot of time in the games and play rooms. Our kids, six and eight, loved frolicking in the playroom, though most of the toys and plastic slide were better suited to toddler-aged children. The pool table in the games room saw a lot of fierce competition, too. Overall, we felt that Napalai, which means “a place in heaven”, offered a lot of choice and space to satisfy guests wishing for a peaceful place to lazily unwind in the tropics as well as those seeking a fun, active holiday.

At the time of our visit (June 2013), Villa Napalai was new to the rental market and as such the service was a tad spasmodic at times. The staff seemed more preoccupied about getting logistics right than anticipating their guests’ needs. However, since we were among the first guests to visit we expect these issues to be ironed out as the team gains more experience under the guidance of the professional management company that operates the villa.

The villas within the estate are quite close together, and the terrace of the villa next door comes into partial view from Napalai’s pool terrace. However, since Napalai is at the end of the road, it benefits from having only one nextdoor neighbour and an unobstructed view towards the hills to the north.

Villa Nautilus

Villa Nautilus

Thailand » Phuket » Ao Po

With its huge windows and bright open plan, Nautilus has an easy elegance that made us feel right at home from the moment we arrived. Not that we weren’t dazzled by the spectacular views across Phang Nga Bay, too! It’s a villa ideal for a family holiday of play and rest, with its 20-metre pool extending across the front making it easy for us to relax inside in the comfy living area while keeping an eye on the kids splashing around. We loved having the delightful dilemma of whether to dine inside at the stately dining table or out on the terrace, with superb views to enjoy either way. And the food did not disappoint, with the chef preparing a delicious medley of Thai dishes including spicy steamed sea bass and Penang chicken curry that even our picky pre-teen was keen to try. Staying on the lesser-travelled east coast of Phuket may not be to everyone’s taste, but we love it here! Ao Po with its mangrove-fringed coastline and rural landscapes is one of our favourite areas of the island, with a still-undiscovered feel about it. And anyone keen to hop aboard a boat or kayak will find Nautilus to be a handy base for their sea exploration.

Ocean’s Edge

Ocean’s Edge

Sri Lanka » South Coast » Tangalle

Ocean’s Edge feels very remote, isolated even, but its 23 acres of grounds, not to mention a near deserted strip of tropical beach, more than compensate for any lack of nearby amenities.  Tangalle, the nearest town, is 21 kilometres away and until recently was the only option for eating out, but a slow wave of development along neighbouring Rekawa and Ranna beaches means that hotel restaurants are now opening up closer to the villa.

As if mimicking its surroundings, Ocean’s Edge is very spacious and bright, its tall arched doorways allowing plenty of light and air to infiltrate.  The bedroom configuration is particularly good for families as the master interconnects with one of the guest rooms and all of the upstairs bedrooms can easily accommodate a cot. The master’s anteroom – used as a TV or reading lounge – has its own bathroom (with tub) and could also be used to sleep a child if required.

The beach – which is ideal for walking and jogging – is around 50 metres beyond the front of the villa.  The sea here is usually too rough for swimming but the lovely pool more than makes up for this. If you do want a dip in the ocean we recommend you head towards Tangalle, whose westerly beaches are better for bathing.  The garden is perfect for fun and games (there are a few cricket bats and balls at the villa).  

The staff made sure we had everything we needed.  The kitchen is well equipped so although you do have a cook at your disposal (his Sri Lankan dishes are very popular), self-catering is entirely possible and the staff will shop for anything you require on a cash and receipt basis.

From Ocean’s Edge you can easily embark on half-day trips to nearby bird or turtle sanctuaries and national parks; the staff can arrange transport.

One Waterfall Bay

One Waterfall Bay

Thailand » Phuket » Kamala

We found One Waterfall Bay to be a standout villa on many fronts.  The sheer size and decadence of its rooms – especially its upper-floor master suite, featuring not one but two home theatres and even two WCs in its huge private bathroom – is one of the most lavish we’ve come across.  With a mini-fridge and private balcony to boot, we wouldn’t expect couples lucky enough to claim this suite to see much of their fellow guests during their stay!  Every room is furnished and finished to the highest quality, from the polished wood floors to the sparkling stainless-steel kitchen to the marble bathrooms.

Service is also outstanding.  Though the on-site staff may not be very fluent in English, they’re very keen to assist and each meal we enjoyed during our stay was delicious and presented with panache.  If there’s any trouble communicating, an English-speaking guest relations manager is just a phone call away.  Though we didn’t avail ourselves of the driver and his minivan on our visit, this is a terrific perk since very few private villas in Phuket include this service.

We loved that this is a real all-weather villa, with plenty to keep guests happy come rain or shine.  Though it lacks a garden, the villa’s large pool and jacuzzi, set on a wide terrace, offer plenty of space and comfy furniture for enjoying the tropical setting.  Sipping a morning coffee on the terrace and watching dozens of birds darting amongst the trees of  the lush headland jungle; occasionally swooping in for a quick fly-by splash in the pool, is a sight we won’t soon forget!  Nestling into the sofas in the home cinema was another treat. All in all, we felt very spoiled throughout our visit at One Waterfall Bay.  Our only regret was running out of time to try a massage treatment in the spa room.

Panacea Retreat - Kalya Residence

Panacea Retreat - Kalya Residence

Thailand » Koh Samui » Bo Phut

From the moment we arrived at Kalya Residence and were greeted by warm smiles, welcome drink, cool towel and garland of flowers, we began to unwind.  We particularly enjoyed our daily yoga session with an experienced teacher, who knew our individual strengths and limits right away – a great perk! Although we were already feeling pretty relaxed by now, our in-villa massages were the icing on the cake!

The kitchen team really know their stuff at Panacea Retreat Residences.  The dishes we ordered from the a la carte menu were fresh, with an emphasis on quality ingredients and there was a good selection of meat, seafood, poultry, vegetarian and healthy options, as well as local favourites.  Meals other than breakfast are prepared in the estate’s professional kitchen, and special orders, eg barbecues, can be discussed with your villa host.  Breakfast is no simple affair, with the chef’s baking skills in evidence once again.  We recommend the freshly made yoghurt pots, with granola and fruit puree, and some avocado, smoked salmon, cold cuts or cheese to accompany your toast … or perhaps a full cooked breakfast if you have room?  Throughout the day, freshly brewed coffee and pots of tea were on offer, with the chef’s biscotti and cookies to keep us sustained until our next delicious meal.

The villa’s layout meant that we found it easy to both come together as a group, or retreat to the calmness of our bedrooms if we wanted some quiet time.  High-pressure rain showers were most enjoyable to freshen up before dinner, and guests in the master suite can also enjoy the luxury of a deep terrazzo bathtub.  We found the staff to be attentive, always there when we wanted a drink, yet unobtrusive, allowing us to enjoy the luxuries and surroundings of the villa undisturbed.
