Beach In Ten Villas

If being near the sea is a holiday ‘must have’, but walking into your bedroom with sand between your toes isn’t, these villas are less than 10 minutes drive from the beach - many within the soothing sound of the surf. (If you have to be right on the sand then try our Beachfront villas.)

Villa Luwih

Villa Luwih

Indonesia » Bali » Canggu area » Canggu

With a double-pool cascade among its many splendours, Villa LuWih is one of the most welcoming and beautiful villas we’ve escaped to in a long while.  Arriving late at night in a slightly dishevelled state, we were quickly restored to a relaxed frame of mind after being met by LuWih’s fresh-faced, smiling team who had prepared our airport transfer service, rooms and snacks exactly as we’d arranged in advance.  The sights and sounds of the night also provide a restorative ambiance, with the villa’s top-floor pool trickling into the big pool below, its soothing lighting and the whooshing symphony of the sea beyond.

After a peaceful sleep in our canopied beds, we awoke and stepped out into a bedazzling scene.  The sparkling green landscape Bali is famous for was in full view all around us, and if we looked further in the distance we could see a serpent’s tail of movement in the sea – a group of surfers riding the waves.

With bedrooms spread evenly over the three levels and a mix of king- and twin-bedded rooms, a group of couples or extended families will find it easy to organise themselves.  Those wanting more seclusion may find the two main-floor bedrooms a bit lacking in privacy, with the doors opening out to the dining and living areas.  But this is a minor quibble, since with their own ensuite bathrooms complete with double bathtubs it’s easy enough to leave the world behind once the doors are slid shut and the curtains drawn.  And they’re both just a quick hop from the big pool.

Now, about these pools … Staying at a hotel with two pools is always impressive, but staying at a private villa with two pools is truly an indulgent delight.  It was a first for us, and we had no excuses for not doing our daily laps.  The shallow section for kids in the larger pool is a thoughtful touch, too.  

With so many staff here, our only concern before arrival was having too many people around!  We were well taken care of, certainly, but never felt overwhelmed or over-serviced during our stay – they seem to have the balance of attention and discretion just right. Being pampered to the hilt is easy to get accustomed to.  LuWih, by the way, means “big” and “luxurious”. Leaving the villa was traumatic.

Majapahit Beach - Villa Nataraja

Majapahit Beach - Villa Nataraja

Indonesia » Bali » East Coast » Ketewel

We really enjoyed Villa Nataraja (and its adjacent twin Villa Raj); it had a very intimate friendly ambiance and exuded a warm, comfortable, lived in feel.  Although the villa is not old, and is very well maintained, we found, on our recent re-visit, that it had lost some of its former lustre and was beginning to look a bit tired.  This isn’t really anyone’s fault; it’s just that being so close to the beach means constant upgrading and maintenance.  For instance, we wondered why the TVs in the bedrooms hadn’t been upgraded with flat-screen models and the manager explained that the new models they bought were affected by the sea air and keep going wrong, whereas the older style TVs proved to be more reliable!

The villa is particularly suitable people looking for get-away-from-it-all peace and quiet and is some distance from restaurants and nightlife.  However, the staff are very professional indeed and the food that comes out of the kitchen is excellent, so there's little need to go out.  The walled garden is very private and dominated by a great pool; the outside options (two balés and the sun loungers) were really pleasant, and being able to enjoy a jacuzzi in your own lounge has a certain seductive appeal.  It’s good to have the beach nearby, and the beach-side sundeck is handy for keeping an eye on the kids.  The rooms in the villa are well kitted out with huge beds and bathrooms. If you are looking for a small step up, consider paying a bit extra for Villa Maya, Majapahit’s absolute beachfront rental property.

Villa Mako

Villa Mako

Indonesia » Bali » Canggu area » Canggu

Villa Mako has a beautiful energy, probably because so much love has gone into the authentic Dutch Colonial design and antique furnishings. Unlike other villas that are monikered ‘colonial style’, we almost felt the need to don safari suits and complain loudly in Dutch about the damned heat! Conversely, the 21st century has a strong showing in the kitchen, bathrooms, TV room and dining areas. Comfort is by no means excluded in the desire for authenticity. The garden is shaded by a large grove of coconut trees providing tropical poolside relaxation you won’t want to leave. The villa’s rural village location allows you to interact with the friendly local people simply by ducking out the gate at the bottom of the garden.

The seafood dinner, prepared for six of us at short notice by the cook was fantastic, beautifully presented with faultless service. The 36 cushions on the huge antique plantation sofa in the hall had us swimming in softness, while the kitchen just cries out to be cooked in. There are see-through cupboards, acres of bench space and a collection of tableware and glasses for every occasion and tipple. The lay-z boy chair in the media room may cause a few fights to break out, so play nice.

Malaiwana - Villa Chan Paa

Malaiwana - Villa Chan Paa

Thailand » Phuket » Naithon Beach

We stayed at Villa Chan Paa for nearly two weeks and it was total bliss. Travelling with our friends, it was the perfect accommodation choice where we could completely relax. I think we only went out of the villa four times, to Catch Beach Club for brunch (highly recommended), boutique shopping at Boat Avenue and Porto de Phuket, and a few boat trips out to the islands. Apart from that, we had everything we needed within our villa. We could walk down to Naithon Beach in minutes. We even took a longtail boat trip one day and went snorkelling, which was spectacular.

The views from the villa are absolutely stunning. We would start the day with breakfast outside in the sala (included in the villa rate), spend a few hours lounging and cooling off in the pool, sunset cocktails on the rooftop, followed by dinner prepared by the fantastic chef, our favourite person during the stay. My friend is a vegan and nothing was too much trouble for the chef. The entire team was amazing and the Villa Manager took care of us during our stay. In fact, we hardly lifted a finger.

The villa is very private, we didn’t notice our neighbours at all, and being so high up it was really peaceful. The televisions are huge. One evening, we put on some 80s music videos and danced and sang at the top of our voices. The best part? Nobody complained!

The living space is huge with two living rooms, spacious bedrooms and even a gym, although that didn’t get used as much. As a group of adults, we all had our own space but came together when we wanted to, which worked for us all. The villa has an elevator which would be great for those with mobility issues or even kids as the only other way to get upstairs is via steps outside. All in all, we had a blast!

Malaiwana - Duplex (B2)

Malaiwana - Duplex (B2)

Thailand » Phuket » Naithon Beach

Vivid tropical skies, fiery sunsets and crystal-blue seas … Naithon Beach is a truly idyllic place, and viewed from our private poolside within Malaiwana Duplex it looks even more spectacular.  We quickly relaxed and eased into the cool, subtle interior of the Duplex, which forms a calming contrast to the colourful tropical surrounds.  Though the Duplex is found within a three-unit, three-storey residence we enjoyed complete peace and privacy here and neither heard nor saw any of our neighbours. The 15-metre pool is gorgeous.

The Duplex is the perfect place for what we call a full-spectrum holiday: enjoying five-star comfort and service while having the simple, natural pleasures of a tropical island at our doorstep.  Having an early-morning swim in the pool, then a decadent breakfast served in style and total privacy on the terrace.  Later on, a stroll along the sand and a snack of grilled chicken on a skewer from a beachside food vendor.  Then back up to the Duplex in time for sunset cocktails and an elaborate dinner of rich Thai curries, spicy whole 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.
