6-bedroom Villas

Six bedroom villas are a dream for groups since they tend to offer a generosity of space that suits big gaggles of friends and inter-generational family gatherings best, as well as those looking to celebrate a special event. There's often one or two twin bedrooms plus an easily accessible room suitable for elderly rellies.

The Lotus Residence

The Lotus Residence

Indonesia » Bali » Canggu area » Canggu

When holidaying at The Lotus Residence, you just won’t want to leave the premises. We didn’t. We didn’t need to!  Everything you could possibly need for relaxation and fun are right here; swimming pools, jacuzzi, plunge pool, a yoga/pilates studio, a choice of sitting, dining and chilling spots, a fascinating working rice field within the grounds, a gorgeous spa at the bottom of the garden, and space – lots of it.

The spa was our second port of call after a dip in the swimming pool, and we spent a delightful couple of hours there having a massage, a sauna and a rain-rinsed soak in the jacuzzi. There’s an icy plunge pool for the adventurous (or foolhardy, which, according to one of us, worked in perfect tandem with the sauna. The other one of us disagreed!

And while the kitchen might not grace the pages of Vogue Interiors (it’s built for staff use but contains every appliance and condiment you could need), we’re sure that if Gordon Ramsey turned up he’d clap his hands and say, “We can work with this. Let’s get cracking.” The meals produced here – the villa operates a priced menu, but special requests are catered for – is stupendous!

If you should feel the urge to escape from this jungle paradise, there’s a fabulous golf course as well as some remote beaches within a 20-minute drive. The sea can be a bit treacherous, however - only for strong swimmers.

Miskawaan - Villa Lotus

Miskawaan - Villa Lotus

Thailand » Koh Samui » Mae Nam

The villas at Miskawaan are positioned perfectly so as not to infringe on each other, allowing privacy in a sheltered beachfront world. The days passed gently; time between meals happily filled with regular dips in the pool interspersed with naps, reading and lazing in the comfortable, shady sala. For sun soaking sessions we headed to the beach, and staff obliged by moving the sun loungers down onto the sand for us. The water here is a balmy 28 degrees Celsius year round and deep enough for a long swim (during the monsoon in November the tides are higher, so the beach gets quite narrow). We enjoyed watching a Hobiecat with its rainbow sail pass up and down, a kite-surfer making the most of the breeze, and gazed enviously at a super-yacht moored in the distance. The games room made a pleasant change from the beach, as we challenged each other to games of pool and foosball. 

The villa manager and her team were friendly and amenable throughout, regularly appearing from nowhere to offer drinks and snacks and efficiently setting tables and serving our pre-ordered meals. Alfresco breakfast was well prepared and varied, with special touches such as the homemade jams – be sure to try the unusual but delicious coconut jam. The estate manager was also there to welcome us when we arrived and not only answered our questions but also offered useful tips and insights about things to do in the area.

In the end though, we resisted the temptation to explore the island in favour of relaxing and enjoying the villa to the full: we saw little reason to go out when we had everything right on our doorstep. We did manage to explore the menu in depth though, and offset our guilt with regular swims and walks along the beach. Luckily our stay included a Thursday night, so we were able to enjoy an evening at the nearby festive walking street market. On our return, the room has been turned down, the air-conditioning set at just the right temperature, and flowers placed on our pillows.

Although Villa Lotus lacks some of the high-end facilities (such as a private gym or cinema room) available at more opulent private residences, we were quite content to enjoy the various holiday pleasures on offer – particularly the villa’s beachside setting – and marked sunset each evening with drinks in the poolside sala.

Moon Cove - Noble House

Moon Cove - Noble House

Thailand » Phuket » Cape Panwa

Swaying coconut trees, a glassy-calm bay, vivid sunrises, jungle-clad hills: those seeking to escape into a classic tropical scene will find it here at Noble House – one of the most peaceful and picturesque villa locations we've found in Phuket. Here, you feel hidden away from the world yet it's less than 15 minutes by car to Phuket Town or Chalong Pier. We spent a lot of time in and around the pool, taking in the view, watching the activity in the bay. Couples will especially enjoy the relaxed pace of life here. Younger kids will need to be watched closely around the pool (which is 2m deep throughout), but they will have fun at the beach collecting shells and splashing in the shallow sea. The spacious lawn that stretches across the front of Noble House and neighbouring Villa Hai Leng offers plenty of running-around space, too. This sheltered, busy bay does not have the most crystal-clear water but it's perfectly safe for swimming – just don't venture too close to the pearl farm buoys or you'll be shooed away! Noble House is a new villa (built 2011) and the owners are hands-on and open to suggestions – be sure to give advance notice of any requirements you may have for children's equipment, bedding or other facilities. Aside from the daily breakfast service this is a self-catering villa but we do recommend hiring the private chef at least once during your stay. This can be arranged with the villa manager. We enjoyed a marvellous, beautifully presented seafood dinner on the terrace. Though we were happy to remain lazily sequestered in the villa, it is worth venturing out for at least one afternoon to drive the scenic roads around the cape. There are plenty of places to stop along the way and take in the views or enjoy a cool drink in a shady hut.

Panacea Retreat - Praana Residence

Panacea Retreat - Praana Residence

Thailand » Koh Samui » Bo Phut

From the moment we arrived at Panacea Retreat and were greeted by warm smiles, a 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 feeling pretty relaxed by this time, we were still pleased to take advantage of our complimentary massages (one hour per guest per stay). Add the private muay Thai instructor and tennis coach into the mix, and it was hard not to feel a little indulgent.

As much as the lovely island of Samui has to offer, the extraordinary entertainment and leisure facilities at Praana Residence were too good to leave. After a morning of sport, an afternoon of relaxation by the pool and a fun evening of music, dance and karaoke in the club, we stretched out in the home cinema for a midnight movie and then retired to our luxurious bedroom suites. A perfect day!

The kitchen team really know their stuff too. There’s an emphasis on quality ingredients and a good selection of dishes, and we thoroughly enjoyed all the meals we ordered from the a la carte menu. Meals other than breakfast are prepared in the estate’s professional kitchen, and special orders such as barbecues can be discussed with your villa host. Breakfast (which is included in the rate) is no simple affair. Try the freshly made yoghurt pots, with granola and fresh 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 made it easy to socialise as a group or enjoy quiet ‘me’ time when it suited. We found the staff to be attentive yet unobtrusive, allowing us to enjoy the luxuries and surroundings of the villa undisturbed.

Pure Villa

Pure Villa

Indonesia » Bali » Canggu area » Canggu

We felt like royalty staying at Pure Villa. The staff were exceptional, not only in taking care of our every whim but also in creating moods to suit the moment. The sheer white elegance of the villa became a canvas for mood lighting at night; tall silver candle holders placed by the staff along the length of the veranda added a warm glow to the evening and lights in the pool turned the water fluorescent with a rainbow of colors. A Bose speaker system installed at every corner of the property meant yoga on the lawn (mats provided), walks around the estate, massages and swimming were all enjoyed with a soundtrack to suit, and the villa iPod was loaded with all the genres we could ask for. With little light pollution, the night sky was amazing, and from the master bedroom we could watch the stars and the sunrise from the comfort of our bed; hello luxury!    

With the in-house chef having exceptional skills in the preparation of Indonesian and Western food, we didn’t look much further than the villa for our meals; and all at only the cost of the shopping plus a 20% service charge. When we did venture out to discover the local sights, having two cars and two drivers on hand (8 hours per day inclusive of cost, petrol extra), and who knew the area so well, made things very easy.

Samsara Estate - Villa Viman

Samsara Estate - Villa Viman

Thailand » Phuket » Kamala

Samsara Villa Viman really is huge, and we loved the fact that even with large groups, there’s still a wide choice of indoor areas to escape to for some peace. The view is exceptional and the pool terrace and sala maximise the enjoyment of the natural surroundings with aplomb. The villa owners obviously have children and the villa has been designed to make sure that guests of all ages are kept busy, rain or shine. The table tennis was a great touch, as was the table football in the huge kids’ bedroom, whilst the home cinema was one of the best we’ve seen.

Service is good and the home-cooked Thai food is excellent – we liked the menu of local delicacies and the fact that the staff can generally organise whatever guests require, whether a pool-side barbecue or sunset drinks in the amazing sala - with English-speaking on-site management close at hand, it’s easy to organise a rental car or a trip to the golf course without getting caught out by the language barrier.

Sava Beach Villas - Villa Malee Sai

Sava Beach Villas - Villa Malee Sai

Thailand » Phuket » Natai Beach

We always appreciate daring design choices, especially when they work well to delight, surprise and soothe the senses. Villa Malee Sai’s ultramodern style forms this beautiful holiday home’s bold statement, but Asian design flourishes add the exclamation point. Yes, this villa’s pulsating with cool panache, a nice complement to the blinding-white beach lining its front.

The ambiance is both stylish and relaxed, and feels just right for the tropical setting. It’s easy to settle in, whip open the heavy glass doors and let the sea breezes flow as generously as the champagne that you’ll pop open to celebrate arriving at one of Thailand’s most beautiful, peaceful beaches. The staff are equally as cheerful, and the maid always seemed to magically arrive just when a glass needed filling or a towel sourced. Families are welcome at all villas at Sava estate, but we felt Malee Sai was one of the most family-friendly with its cheerful décor and many games and toys. We didn’t party during our stay (we had work to do!) but with the elaborate entertainment system, barbecue facilities, the chef and the divine open layout, a garden soiree is a must-do here. We were told that all the holiday villas in this estate have played host to some great events and weddings, and the management company can liaise with local event planners to help with larger events needing more staff and services.

With its six bedrooms arranged in two separate wings, the villa is ideally laid out for two families or groups wanting to share a holiday without being on top of one another. Although there’s plenty of privacy here, and peace and quiet abound in large doses, Villa Malee Sai is part of an estate so it lacks the feel of a total hideaway. Yet under the starlit tropical sky, cocktail in hand, with only the lapping waves disturbing the silence, it felt as though we had the whole beach, indeed the whole world, all to ourselves. Bliss.

Shalimar Villas - Villa Kalima

Shalimar Villas - Villa Kalima

Indonesia » Bali » Canggu area » Seseh-Tanah Lot

When you walk into Villa Kalima you just know you're going to have a good holiday. The living room will be the central hub of action (or inaction) and has a wonderful feel to it – so relaxing. In fact with so many beds around – sun loungers in and out of the water, sofas fit for a football team or two, a huge sprawling daybed in front of the TV – two of the master suites even have daybeds in the bathrooms – lazy afternoons with books and magazines (bring your own) will drift by all too quickly. We kicked off our shoes and were in the right mood within minutes of arrival, helped by some lovely staff who would not let us lift a finger and were only too keen to make our stay a pleasurable one. The food was delicious (you pay for the ingredients, the staff buy and cook. Prices are a bargain). Breakfast is prepared in the villa kitchen, which can be a bit intrusive, but most meals are cooked in the main kitchens for the whole Shalimar complex around the back. The pool is a delight and seems a natural extension to the main living room, and the master bedrooms are lovely although some might be a tad nervous about the semi-open bathrooms of the two ground floor ones. The basement bedrooms are fine – best suited to kids though.

Sira Beach House

Sira Beach House

Indonesia » Lombok » Northwest Lombok » Tanjung

This is a great villa for families or groups of friends, with loads of space, private places to escape and plenty of entertainment for all ages. The pairing of the six bedrooms means that three families can easily escape from each other in their own separate areas. During our visit to the villa the staff surprised us by setting up a sunset table for two on the sand, within a circle of candles and flaming torches, to create a most romantic feast of local dishes. Only after the sun went down did we realise that the ‘circle’ was actually a heart shape! The chef has created a great menu and can turn his hand to anything but loves to indulge his guests with Lombok specialties. Due to the remoteness of the area, you’ll be asked to order your first meal and any special requests in advance of your arrival. The kitchen will operate on a menu or grocery system according to your preferences.

Fully self-contained, we didn’t leave the confines of the villa grounds except to swim in the ocean. The electronic beeper that we were given to summon the staff at anytime was a great idea (and necessary due to the size of the place). No one claims that this villa is 100% environmentally sustainable but great care has been taken in the design to be as eco-friendly as possible. We were very aware that, although were indulging in six-star luxury, we were having a low impact – the pool is chemical free, our long showers and baths were solar heated and the water we were using was being recycled to nurture the organic gardens.

Siri Mendira - Villa Angsoka

Siri Mendira - Villa Angsoka

Indonesia » Bali » East Coast » Candidasa

Our stay at Villa Angsoka was imbued with a sense of smugness, this was a villa to be proud of! The views are mesmerising, holding us captive for hours at a time. Nature is generous here, using the sky and ocean as her canvas; treating us to misty pink-hued mornings, brilliant blue afternoon skies with low slung clouds bopping over the horizon, and views over the rocky hulk of neighbouring island, Penida, and the shadowy silhouette of Lombok in the distance. Dreamy days gently slipped by, with little to think about except whether to have pancakes or eggs for breakfast; swim in the ocean or the pool; take a trip to the beach, or stay at the villa. While built on a grand scale, the owners designed Angsoka with harmony and comfort in mind, creating a highly liveable space which is luxurious without being over the top. The collection of Indonesian curios and antiques is more homely than museum-like in nature, while simple sofas and chairs in all-weather rattan, suit the tropical beach location. We enjoyed watching local life unfurl around us, with fishermen heading off in their colourful jukung (fishing boats) or net fishing in the shallows, while easy strolls down the shady lane revealed cows meandering through the coconut groves and kids playing soccer. While there was no direct view of the sunset, dusk was still a beautiful time, bathing the villa and the ocean in a soft pink glow, and we always looked forward to the staff lighting the decorative fires at either end of the pool, punctuating the night sky with flames.
