Happy kids make for a happy holiday. These villas are packed with things for the kids to do or have plenty of attractions in the local area. Whether it is Wii or WiFi, pool (snooker) or pool (swimming), it's boards rather than bored. We can’t guarantee that every property is 100% ‘kid safe’, but we can guarantee that there will be plenty to keep them entertained.

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.

Samui Summit Estate - Alpha Villa

Samui Summit Estate - Alpha Villa

Thailand » Koh Samui » Choeng Mon

It's not often you get to sit with an iced drink in the sunshine and look out on 180 degrees of tropical splendour with twinkling bays left and right and palm-coated hills rising from the valley below.  At Alpha Villa you can't avoid it and the upper floor lounge and pool terrace alone is a perfect spot to spend a relaxing few days.

If you sleep in the comfortable master bedroom next to the pool, you may never bother venturing into the villa’s rather cavernous lower levels.  That's not to say guest bedrooms downstairs are disappointing - all four are quiet, private and slide open onto beautifully landscaped gardens.    

Families or groups of friends will enjoy this villa because it offers plenty of options to combine shared time with more private moments.  Gathering in the TV room on the middle floor is like a trip to a laid-back cinema and it's easy to lose track of time in there, day or night, as you recline on the comfy cushions in air conditioned bliss, catching up on your movie back log.  But up on the pool deck is still the best way to lose a day; floating in the pool or gazing at the view.     

Although there are a lot of steps to negotiate between floors (not ideal for seniors), the kids have plenty of space to explore and play safely (as long as you keep an eye on them around the pool area, which drops off sharply).  Alpha Villa is also one of the few hillside properties on Samui that's genuinely convenient for trips to the main beaches and tourist attractions (although a car will be necessary).     

Efficient but unobtrusive staff and a wide range of optional services give you the freedom to be totally independent but also to spoil yourself with in-house indulgences like a private chef or daily massage if you so choose.  This is a great location, with versatile facilities and breathtaking views, as long as you don't mind a steep drive.

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!

Sanur Residence

Sanur Residence

Indonesia » Bali » East Coast » Sanur-Ketewel

Sanur Residence is very modern in design, simply furnished but very comfortable. Although the houses may not have the rustic ambiance of traditional Balinese villas, they make excellent beachside holiday homes. To us it looked as though each house is owned by a different member of the same family so has taken on a different personality within ostensibly the same frame. The middle house (House Two) has mature furnishings and an older feel with some interesting art and sculptures. At the other end of the spectrum is House Three – young and vibrant with pink and grey soft furnishings in the lounge, bright art on the walls, and a private media room. House One falls somewhere in between. That said all the bedrooms are large and very comfortable (especially the master suites) and have huge modern, very practical terrazzo-finished bathrooms. Each house has perfectly acceptable facilities including TVs, cable and DVDs throughout, and good common spaces. The house kitchens are small - just service or snack kitchens, the bulk of the cooking is done in the staff kitchen and delivered to the house. We thought it odd that ther is no obvious place for communal dining except for in the rather formal meeting room. The staff did say, however, that they are happy to set up tables out on the lawns, which we can imagine would be great for a barbecue.

Villa Sapi

Villa Sapi

Indonesia » Lombok » Northwest Lombok » Tanjung

How relaxed is it possible for a human being to get? Our stay at Villa Sapi gave us some idea. It was so peaceful and quiet; the only constants being the sun, the breeze and the gentle splashing of the waves on the sand. Otherwise, it was a new experience at every turn, from the extraordinary architectural design to the random acts of artwork around the villa and gardens. The TV room – curvilinear, boxed-in with glass and filled with assorted beanbags – looks and feels like an annex of George Jetson’s cartoon space house.

The ebbing tide occupies a big part of your day because it takes up such a big part of your view. We sat on the beach one evening watching a brilliant sunset over a low, low tide with the dusk light reflecting off the rock pools and silhouetting the fishermen stalking the shallow waters. Yet, while nature’s sea views are pretty special, be sure to take the time to turn the sun loungers around so you can stare back at the equally impressive artistic achievements of man.

Come mid-afternoon, it’s fun to amble down to the Hotel Tugu for a glass of something cold and a journey into Indonesia’s diverse indigenous past before returning to Sapi for a sunset drink and the anticipation of what chef has in store for dinner. At the time of our visit, the daily charge for food per person was a mere US$40 (US$20 for children). Every meal was a three-course gourmet indulgence, and in our opinion this was some of the best food we have ever had in a villa; the chef is five-star-trained after all. If you’re worried about gaining a few kilos (and you probably will) you can opt for the chef’s low calorie fare. If you’re looking for in-house activities, the manager can arrange tennis with a professional coach, table tennis, volleyball, cooking classes and more.

All in all, this is a villa where you will want to bring your friends so they can see it for themselves. Photos and tall tales just won’t suffice.
