Lassana Kanda

Lassana Kanda

Sri Lanka » South Coast » Galle

Lassana Kanda is a destination in itself – one of Sri Lanka’s grandest private villas (on a par with those in Bali and Thailand) and offers such an abundance of space and facilities that it encourages you to stay put.  The interiors were furnished elegantly and felt distinctly uncluttered.

The pool is stunning and plenty large enough to swim decent lengths while others relax in the shallows and admire the gorgeous palm-fringed valley views.  The meticulously designed tropical gardens complemented the verdant hillside setting perfectly.  We loved the pool pavilion for dining and the sun deck for relaxing on the plentiful loungers.

The guesthouse has a little kitchenette and works well for independent teens as well as elderly relatives or less mobile family members who prefer ground level bedrooms.  There are plenty of kids’ toys and facilities at the villa and this, together with such an abundance of space for letting off steam or finding your own quiet corner, make Lassana Kanda a dream destination for families.

The villa has a dedicated staff team.  The manager is also an experienced chef (he’s worked in Australia and the UK) and served us seared tuna with a mango salsa for lunch and a Thai selection from one of his evening set menus; both meals were excellent.  Staff do not live in, but there is 24-hour security and the manager is on call.

Villa LeGa

Villa LeGa

Indonesia » Bali » Greater Seminyak » Seminyak

Returning to Villa LeGa recently, almost everything was the same as it was the last time.  And by that we mean, fantastic! The staff remembered us from our last visit and it felt a bit like coming home.  There is a new beach club and restaurant next door now, but the noise was not really noticeable. On the few occasions when they have a special events going on, we suspect that villa guests will probably be dancing along with the best of them! And as they offer a permanent discount to villa guests, it’s a win–win situation.  The villa now boasts a new rooftop deck right at the front of the property, with sun loungers and umbrellas that look straight out to sea.  All very Ibiza and la de dah.  We love it! LeGa is not only a stunning property, but it boasts a fabulous location and comes with an excellent staff team who were very good at anticipating our needs before we had even knew them ourselves. There is a good menu too with an excellent choice of western fusion cuisine.  Whilst the interiors of LeGa are stylish and beautifully arranged, the property still feels very homely. The ground floor living areas spill onto the swimming pool terrace and, as such, are very sociable, as is the whole villa; it feels fun, young and sophisticated.  My favourite spot was the upper-floor terrace with its great views over the beach and sea.  It’s a fab venue for cocktails at sunset. The villa might not have a lot of outside space, but what there is works well and the gardens are meticulously maintained; wander beyond the villa and you have the whole beach to explore.

Lime Samui - Villa Splash

Lime Samui - Villa Splash

Thailand » Koh Samui » Bang Por-Nathon » Nathon

We defy anyone not to be ‘Wowed’ by Lime Samui.  The villa and the views are sensational and instantly create just the right holiday mood.  While we normally tend towards more traditional tropical villa design, we felt that this multi-level, super-modern villa fits its environment perfectly. The fresh, vibrant and uncluttered interiors are exciting and liberating, enhanced by a dramatic sense of space, light and height, courtesy of the villa’s hilltop location.

The living and dining spaces open completely to the wide pool and deck areas making it effortless to drift indoors and out as the mood dictates without ever having to tear yourself away from that view. Bedrooms are all very privately situated, comfortable and spacious, and while each of the bright ensuite bathrooms offer a similar range of fixtures, individual colours and choice of materials make them all delightfully different.  We were sorry not to be able to try out the sumptuous home cinema during our brief stay (there was major power failure on the island), but have vowed to return, as this was a villa luxury not to be missed.  Not sure what our excuse was for not trying the gym – it was certainly well-equipped and even this room doesn’t compromise on the view – but somehow the massage beds won out over the stairmaster!

Lime Samui’s staff team impressed us in all the right ways.  When we had questions they had the answers; when we wanted privacy they disappeared; when we were hungry they presented us with deliciously fresh and tasty meals. There is nowhere you can easily get to from Lime Samui without transport (unless you’re into mountaineering!) but a driver and car is provided and, as far as we were concerned, we had everything that we needed right there and no inclination to leave.

Lime Samui - Villa Zest

Thailand » Koh Samui » Bang Por-Nathon » Nathon

We defy anyone not to be ‘Wowed’ by Lime Samui.  The villa and the views are sensational and instantly create just the right holiday mood.  While we normally tend towards more traditional tropical villa design, we felt that this multi-level, super-modern villa fits its environment perfectly. The bright, open-fronted interiors create a pleasing borderless freedom, enhanced by a dramatic sense of space, light and height, courtesy of the villa’s lofty hillside location. It’s easy to drift between the pool deck and the living and dining spaces as the mood dictates without ever having to tear yourself away from those views.

The four king-bedded rooms are all very privately situated, comfortable and spacious, while the kids room, with its wide terrace just above the pool, is near enough to the villa’s main living areas to keep an eye on the little ones while still letting them enjoy their own space and the great facilities that go with it.

Lime Samui’s staff team impressed us in all the right ways.  When we had questions they had the answers; when we wanted privacy they disappeared; when we were hungry they presented us with deliciously fresh and tasty meals (do try the refreshing home-made iced pandan tea!).

Villa Malaathina

Villa Malaathina

Indonesia » Bali » Greater Seminyak » Umalas-Kerobokan

With its palatial proportions and decadent style, it’s tempting to say that we felt like royalty staying at Malaathina, but the villa is so contemporary that the term seems a little inappropriate and old-fashioned. Perhaps ‘movie stars’ is closer to the mark! We stayed alone and cheerfully lapped up the luxury, but were rather tempted to invite some friends along, because this is really a villa that deserves to be shared. With so much space and such a glamorous setting it simply begs for celebrations and events, and the atmospheric Javanese rock garden looked like an idyllic spot for a wedding ceremony.

I could easily imagine joining a high-end retreat here too – the yoga pavilion was a lovely space, and very well equipped (one of the owners is a yoga teacher – so no surprise there,) and the overall vibe, with the rice-paddy views and myriad terraces and gardens is wonderfully serene. We didn’t have a chance to enjoy the teppanyaki grill, but what a fabulous idea. When we return with a big group of friends that will be top of our list!

Malaiwana - Villa M

Malaiwana - Villa M

Thailand » Phuket » Nai Thon

Villa M underwent a million-dollar makeover just before our visit in 2017, and it was sparkling like brand new.  And that’s a five-star down-to-the-tiniest-detail brand new.

The villa is also in an absolutely stunning location, high up on a steep wooded hill, presiding over a 180-degree ocean view.  Coming through the surprisingly modest front door, we were blown away by that view and its reflection in the infinity-edge pool.

When we finally dragged ourselves away for a tour of the villa, we found that every door we opened led to more delights; one superbly designed room after another.  All the rooms feature large modern art canvasses – most in bright colours.  It’s almost as if the villa knows it has to do something pretty spectacular to compete with the view for your attention, and these amazing art pieces are it.

Upstairs, the walls of Villa M are almost entirely of glass, so that indoor luxury and outdoor amazement merge.  But even on the lower floor every room has that same breathtaking view.  It’s really quite delightfully distracting.

After chilled sundowners to accompany the evening’s heavenly spectacle and supper looking out at the green and white lights of the fishing boats, we decided to leave the delights of the entertainment room for another day and just relax in the super-comfortable living room.

Making this all so much more luxurious were the amiable and generous-minded villa manager, her assistant and the chef, who ensured that we enjoyed royal treatment throughout our stay.
