Lime Samui - Villa Zest

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!). There is nowhere you can get to easily 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.

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.

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 Maridadi

Villa Maridadi

Indonesia » Bali » Canggu area » Seseh-Tanah Lot

It’s hard to imagine a more perfect villa for families with older children, groups of friends or business partners, plenty of space and opportunity to enjoy meals and shared social times whilst being able to retreat to a terrace or garden daybed to read a book or enjoy a massage. You won’t be falling over each other on this manicured estate. Maridadi is also a spectacular backdrop for weddings, dinner parties, barbecues or sunset cocktails. Highly recommended is an evening cultural dance and music performance arranged by the villa staff, who can also prepare the famous Balinese Babi Guling (roast suckling pig) to make it an authentic Bali evening.

We particularly enjoyed long beach walks with ever-changing views – from wonderful villages with traditional outrigger fishing boats to stunning rice terraces, surfers and ceremonies. There is nothing nicer than returning from a long walk or bike ride to a pre-arranged massage or treatment selected from a menu at the villa (extra charge). Children of all ages invariably end up turning the front lawn into a football, rugby or cricket pitch and will find a variety of picnic spots, like the wooden rice barn, to add to their holiday fun.

The villa is a little off the beaten track with the nearest restaurants and shops 12 -14km away however with such a varied and expertly executed menu, and staff who will venture forth to purchase anything you wish for, we found this was of little consequence. If you do want to get out and about, the villa comes with a car and driver (petrol is charged).

When you have morning views over rice terraces and volcanoes, sunsets over sea temples and breaking surf, sublime comfort, superb cuisine and pampering staff there’s not much else to wish for.

Villa Minh

Villa Minh

Thailand » Phuket » Kamala

Perched at the windswept edge of a lush Kamala promontory, Villa Minh is an enthralling escape.  First, the views. Not only were we treated with a breathtaking panorama of blazing sunsets over the sea, but also of the crags and jungle-clad hills of the headland, most impressively from the lower-level master suite that offers a dreamy view of a palm-tree studded outcrop surrounded by the swirling emerald sea.  During our stay the skilled and friendly staff certainly freed us from any worry or discomfort, and Minh’s exceptionally elegant design provides plenty of inspiration.  This would be a special place to get married, and we were told that a wedding with 40 guests was to be staged here soon.  The marble-tiled infinity pool makes for an indulgent dip.  We discovered why the villa manager referred to it as the “bling pool” when purple and white lights began twinkling from its depths after dark!  A lot of thought went into the art collection here, which is an interesting mix of bright contemporary paintings and Asian antiques. Certificate books on the living room’s coffee table provide insight into the age and origin of each of the antiques. Here we must praise the Minh team for ensuring that every sense is enlivened, most obviously with the sights, but even the olfactory experience has been well thought out.  Every room has its own aromatic incense and we can declare that Minh has the best smelling bedlinens we’ve ever encountered.  Really, we just wanted to bury our heads in those pillows and never get out of bed! We’re still miffed that we forgot to ask the cleaning staff about their scintillating scent secrets.

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.
