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 Ramadewa

Villa Ramadewa

Indonesia » Bali » Greater Seminyak » Seminyak

Villa Ramadewa is an absolutely stunning in-town villa which has clearly had much care and attention lavished on it by its owner. The details are delightful as are the staff who we found worked very hard to provide a warm and professional service.

This villa would be ideal for a family given its central location, and if you really can’t escape work whilst on holiday - the study set up and connectivity here is ideal. The bedrooms and bathrooms are exquisite and the pool is a delight. The owner and architect should be commended for creating a real oasis in the centre of Seminyak.

Returning to Ramadewa after three years, we were delighted to find that the villa had been impeccably maintained, the garden is looking colourful and beautiful, and the wine room has been kept fully stocked with an excellent selection of wines, Champagnes and spirits. The owner is, after all, a perfectionist!

Villa Saan

Villa Saan

Thailand » Phuket » Kamala

Our stay at Villa Saan left us in no doubt that this is a fantastic choice for anyone seeking a tropical holiday immersed in style and luxury.  The villa’s exquisite design, with its grand entrance foyer framing wide sea views, adds extra WOW factor to its spectacular hillside location, and a clever four-floor layout provides ample shared space and plenty of privacy within each bedroom suite.

Keeping cool is easy in the 19-metre infinity pool that appears to hover above the sea, and the jacuzzi set in the corner of the pool is just the spot for relaxation between swims.  Fancy a more private soak? Just head up to the master suite and ease into the plunge pool on its private balcony, or lie back and relax in the suite’s outdoor tub.  The two top-floor guest bedrooms also have bathtubs-with-a-view in their ensuite bathrooms. 

Though it was hard to drag ourselves away from the sea and sunset views, we did enjoy watching movies in the villa’s sumptuous private cinema.  This, together with the games room and pool table, said to us that Saan is a villa designed for entertaining as much as relaxing.

The staff here are especially thoughtful. We arrived on a day of inclement weather and, since a dip in the pool wasn’t an option, were asked if we’d like a bottle of chilled wine brought up to the master suite as an alternative. We agreed that this was an excellent idea!

Villa Samadhana

Villa Samadhana

Indonesia » Bali » East Coast » Ketewel

The first thing we noticed on entering Villa Samadhana was the wide open space, rarely seen these days in the more popular tourist centres of Bali. The kids ran a good 70m sprint from the entrance up to the living area, across manicured lawns and past flowering trees. Being a family of four, we had our choice of three separate sleeping pavilions but, as our youngest still wakes in the night, we opted for the master suite so we could be close together. With a king-size bed in the sleeping chamber and upholstered couches in the adjoining sitting room, the kids were excited about sleeping in an unconventional, yet comfortable space – especially with access to their own 32-inch flat-screen television.

The owners obviously love to spend quality family time here and the poolside pavilion is a well thought out covered area that provides unlimited opportunities for action, relaxation and play for the entire group. With a 25m lap pool, generously sized shallow area for toddlers, inflatable pool toys and four umbrella-shaded sun loungers, this was our ‘go to’ spot each day after breakfast.

The butler and his attendants soon realised that our small, low maintenance group didn’t require them at our beck and call all day and discretely left us to our own devices until we needed them. However, the villa’s extensive amenities and big team of full time staff are perfect for large groups and special events such as weddings. And chef Wayan is a magician in the kitchen. He and his team took care of the grocery shopping before our arrival, based on our selections from the vast menu emailed to us. As a first night surprise for the kids we’d ordered ice cream sundaes and banana splits - the perfect treat before watching a family movie in the air-conditioned media room.

The Pabean Beach area serves up a refreshing slice of unhurried Balinese life. Our daily strolls to the beach provided glimpses of an authentic village lifestyle: local children laughing and playing on the glittering, black-sand beach, elderly men chatting beneath their shady roadside shelters and ibu (mothers) skilfully wielding long, skinny sticks to knock down frangipani blossoms for daily prayer offerings.

Villa Samira

Villa Samira

Thailand » Phuket » Kamala

At Villa Samira we really felt connected to the sea and sky. The villa is blessed with all-encompassing views and fabulous sunsets, and with its sleek style and cool blue, turquoise and white accents, it emanated a luxury yacht-like ambiance that had us dreaming of long sea voyages as we floated blissfully in the pool.  

We think this villa would have extra appeal for groups of holidaying couples, with its three top-floor bedroom suites each offering lavish places to relax in privacy.  Battles might be waged, however, over the master suite, with its coveted private jacuzzi set on the terrace and extra-large dressing room and bathroom.  The three lower-floor guest rooms, though slightly smaller, still offer plenty of comfort and luxury. 

The staff here are friendly and helpful and, though unobtrusive, are available throughout the day whenever needed.  The villa manager was keen to know exactly how we liked our meals prepared, and when we mentioned that we liked spicy food she added an extra side dish of chopped chilli at dinner time.  (We’d forgotten that when you say “spicy” in Thailand it means a white-hot fire! So it was thoughtful of her to give us control over the heat level.)

Villa Sammasan

Villa Sammasan

Thailand » Phuket » Surin

Villa Sammasan is a great family villa – stylish enough to satisfy those seeking a touch of luxury but comfortable and welcoming for kids, too.  We spent most of our time here on the pool terrace, where the kids flipped for the pool, literally, as they spent a lot of time perfecting their forward jump flips while we watched in comfort from the shady sala.  We had a short stay yet the weather conditions ran the gamut from glorious sunshine to torrential rains, and the villa was a lovely haven either way.  The ultra comfortable living room and media room were great retreats for games and movies when the sun disappeared.  The larger four-bedroom Villa Napalai  next door is under the same management so big groups or extended families needing more space might consider booking Sammasan and Napalai together.

The staff here are helpful and amazingly, considering the picky eaters among us, the chef’s meals were relished and devoured by all.  Dinner was a standout event: we thought we’d ordered far too many dishes, but they were so delicious we finished them all.  The yam nue yang (spicy beef salad) and pla nueng manao (steamed sea bass in lime and garlic) were simply spectacular, and we watched in awe as our kids ate the fish up like candy.

Villa Sapna

Villa Sapna

Thailand » Phuket » Cape Yamu

Villa Sapna really bowled us over with its amazing east-coast setting and sublime design.  Every sense-pleasing thing we could dream of in a tropical holiday villa was to be found here: sunrise views, sunset views, sea views … yes!  Add to that captivating paintings by celebrated Asian artists, modern architecture with a touch of Thai elegance, vibrant living areas that fully open to lush gardens, a 20-metre swimming pool, and attentive staff.  And a gym.  And a private chef who creates heavenly Thai tastes.  And for ease of access, a lift.  It’s hard to describe how uplifting it feels to be here, the quality of the tropical light and the vivid skies and the total serenity – just book it and see for yourself!

We also thought that, with its balance of bedrooms and living rooms arranged across two separate pavilions, the villa’s layout was ideal for extended families or two families seeking added privacy.  We’re also partial to the Cape Yamu area of Phuket as we prefer to avoid the tourist crowds.  Though it’s becoming something of an enclave for ultra-luxury villas and resorts, much of the area is still swathed in native jungle and plantations, with fishing and farming the main activities of the local people.
