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.

Villa Nandana

Villa Nandana

Thailand » Phuket » Natai Beach

With such a magnificent setting on the beachfront at Natai, Villa Nandana had us hooked even before we stepped across its threshold. And yet, we were bowled over again once we had a peek inside. The pitch-roofed living room with its aura of a fine summer palace, the master suite with its lavish double bathtub enveloped in marble, the inviting pool perched near the seafront – simply, wow!  

With its balance of shared spaces and ultra-private bedrooms, Nandana is a fabulous retreat for families or groups of friends. Those looking for a more transformative holiday will find that the villa facilities are perfect for designing your own wellness retreat. We could have even arranged for a personal trainer, yoga teacher or spa therapist to come to the villa and work us into fit and fighting shape had the mood taken us. But the sea-view pool, a good book to curl up with on the comfy living room sofas, and toes-in-the-sand beach walks were enough of a body and mind recovery for this family!

It’s a magical feeling to return from a long, leisurely stroll and see that the only footprints on the sand are ours. With Phuket Island getting more crowded with each passing year, we’re happy to know that such a spacious, peaceful and elegant escape can be reached within an hour of touching down at the airport. Paradise found!

Panacea Retreat - Avasara Residence

Panacea Retreat - Avasara Residence

Thailand » Koh Samui » Bophut

From the moment we arrived at Avasara Residence and were greeted by warm smiles, 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 already feeling pretty relaxed by now, our massages were the icing on the cake!
   
The kitchen team really know their stuff at Panacea Retreat.  The dishes we ordered from the a la carte menu were fresh, with an emphasis on quality ingredients and there was a good selection of meat, seafood, poultry, vegetarian and healthy options, as well as local favourites.  Meals other than breakfast are prepared in the estate’s professional kitchen, and special orders, eg barbecues, can be discussed with your villa host.  Breakfast is no simple affair, with the chef’s baking skills in evidence once again.  We recommend the freshly made yoghurt pots, with granola and 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 meant that we found it easy to both come together as a group, or retreat to the calmness of our bedrooms if we wanted some quiet time.  High-pressure rain showers were most enjoyable to freshen up before dinner, and guests in the master suite can also enjoy the luxury of a deep terrazzo bathtub.  We found the staff to be attentive, always there when we wanted a drink, yet unobtrusive, allowing us to enjoy the luxuries and surroundings of the villa undisturbed.

Panacea Retreat - Praana Residence

Panacea Retreat - Praana Residence

Thailand » Koh Samui » Bophut

From the moment we arrived at Panacea Retreat and were greeted by warm smiles, awelcome 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 the in-villa massage. 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.

Pandawa Cliff Estate - Villa Markisa

Pandawa Cliff Estate - Villa Markisa

Indonesia » Bali » Jimbaran - Bukit » The Bukit

We felt on top of the world staying at Villa Markisa – the view is sensational and the sheer amount of space a luxury.  The master suite is just magnificent – even the bathtub commands a killer view!  And with its private garden and pool – the villa has three in total – we could cheerfully have holed up here and never enjoyed the rest of the villa.  No wonder this is dubbed the Bridal Suite for those getting hitched here!

The cliff-edge pavilion was another favourite spot; in the early morning we could see as far as Nusa Penida on the horizon, and we had a bird’s eye view of the activities on Pandawa Beach far below.

We’ve never come across a villa that gives guests such privacy and space for all five bedrooms.  The layout perhaps takes some getting used to, as living areas are divided individually.  But that makes it perfect for those who like to holiday together while also enjoying their own personal space (and there’s always the option to open up the living and dining areas in the guest pavilion for a shared experience).  And of course Villa Markisa is an outstanding wedding venue.  With its multiple living spaces and three pools, a crowd could easily get lost here… and then there’s the estate’s sports centre and spa too!

Villa Markisa’s staff is drawn from the team that serves Pandawa Cliff Estate under the direction of hospitality supremo Diego Pons.  Bayu and Cita, our assigned butlers, looked after us well while never being intrusive.  And we became huge fans of Chef Wayan who served us some wonderful meals – make sure you try his tom yum soup and prawn curry!  (Though there are three kitchenettes, the main kitchen isn’t set up for guest use so this isn’t for people who like to pitch in and cook together on vacation.  But with such an accomplished chef, and a varied and reasonably priced menu to choose from, that’s hardly a problem.)

Villa Pushpapuri

Villa Pushpapuri

Indonesia » Bali » East Coast » Sanur-Ketewel

You cannot fail to enjoy Villa Pushpapuri – we certainly did during our stay. The staff were very helpful, the food was good and the setting superb. It was a real treat to be able to see and hear the sea from almost everywhere - by the fabulous swimming pool, at dinner (inside or out) or from most of the bedrooms. We also really enjoyed retiring to the underground bar in the evening for a beer and game of pool. The villa is only a few years old (2006) but the quality of finish is excellent and the maintenance first class which it has to be given its exposed coastal location. The gardens are a delight and the bright interiors very enjoyable. Villa Pushpapuri would make an excellent choice for families as there is a load to do.

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 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 San

Villa San

Indonesia » Bali » Ubud

To be this close to the centre of vibrant Ubud but be surrounded by so much space, peace and comfort is a rare treat. Returning to the sanctuary of Villa San’s impressively long lap pool, lovely lawn and big comfy bedrooms and bathrooms after a hard day’s shopping or sight-seeing in and around Ubud was a delight. We were royally looked after by the lovely staff, who were keen to make sure that we enjoyed our stay and equally keen to share their knowledge of the area and the culture and customs of this lovely part of the island.

The master suite gets top marks for luxury, comfort and sheer quality. There are no TVs in the bedrooms (they get points for that, from us) but there are excellent TV/DVD/music systems in the two entertainment rooms and a smaller set, plus electronic games console , in the playroom. Bring your own DVDs though, as the owner’s collection is pretty small. Ditto iPods for the docks in every bedroom.

The villa is well-equipped for young children and extended families with three twin-bedded rooms and a great playroom. Having all the accommodation on one level is also be a big plus for guests that have trouble with steps.

The cool shady balé at the top end of the swimming pool is big enough to seat everyone, even where there’s a full house, and with Bose speakers installed in the rafters it makes the perfect place to chill out, enjoy the tropical scene and thank your lucky stars that you are staying at Villa San.

Oh yes, and we couldn’t help but imagine what an absolutely lovely place Villa San would be – marquee on the lawn, glass of Champagne in the hand, music drifting through the balmy evening air – for a casual wedding reception or other special celebration!
