Khomba House

Khomba House

Sri Lanka » North West Coast » Kalpitiya

Khomba House was much bigger and grander than we’d imagined it to be and this was a wonderful surprise. Packed with places to relax, all in lovely bright tropical colours, the impetus here really is on keeping your body horizontal for as much time as possible. Daybeds double up as extra beds and this is certainly a great house for getting a gang together and enjoying some quality down time. It also makes a fab getaway for a family as the kids will love the adventure of the huge sandy garden and the beach beyond, not to mention the water sports available at the neighbouring resort. Aside from loving the amazing space that the house offered, we also were very taken by the genuine warmth of housekeepers Sisira and his wife Indrani. Sisira always had a smile on his face and was happy to assist with any request whilst Indrani was a whizz in the kitchen and her Sri Lankan food was delicious. There aren’t actually any menus in the villa, but Indrani is open to guests’ suggestions. Meals are charged at US$5 per person plus groceries at cost price plus 10% to cover fuel and basics.

Villa Kodok

Villa Kodok

Indonesia » Bali » Greater Seminyak » Seminyak

As soon as we entered Villa Kodok we felt a real sense of seclusion, serenity and privacy. And we were so impressed with the staff’s from-the-heart service. This lovely team of Balinese people stayed well out of our way but were there in an instant if we needed them. A brass bell is provided to summon them at any time.

The villa was built as a home and has been furnished with love, yet it is also stylish, practical and immaculately maintained. We were delighted to note that there is so much emphasis on children here; it’s a true family-friendly villa with every consideration given to the care, entertainment and safety of guests’ children. Even the fishpond outside the living room has a protective grill over it to deter over-curious kids. The villa has a connection with the nearby Glo Day Spa, so guests get a discount and therapists will come to the villa.

Kurulla Villa

Kurulla Villa

Sri Lanka » South Coast » Unawatuna

We found Kurulla Villa to be a very tranquil and convenient base to explore the surrounding beaches and fort of Galle, since its excellent out-of-the-way location is still so close to both. It is a great property for families, offering uncluttered spaces and plenty of privacy. The house is surrounded by a large garden which is mainly flat and laid to lawn, making it ideal for children of all ages to tear about in. The garden is enhanced by a wonderful 22m pool (great for exercising) with a wide, sociable, semi-circular, shelved entrance ideal for lounging or sitting half in or half out of the water. This section of the pool is also quite shallow, making it even more suitable for children.

The house boasts a scattering of antique furniture from both Sri Lanka and abroad, however, since there are only a few paintings and pictures on the walls, the overall effect is quite minimal, a feeling highlighted even more as a result of the ceilings being so high. Whilst there is a small selection of CDs and pool toys, there are no DVDs or board games and only a few books, so you might want to bring some of these with you.

The staff of three keeps the house in order and housekeeper Chandana stays in the staff quarters at night. The cook prepares meals from a basic priced menu, although you can also discuss other simple options with him, which Chandana will then price up for you. Guests also have the option of self-catering or, since there are so many good restaurants within such a short distance, eating out in either Unawatuna or Galle.

Kurumba House

Kurumba House

Sri Lanka » South Coast » Tangalle

What a great beachside bolthole; simple, unfussy and most importantly, very relaxed. Minimal clothing, stacks of books and an iPod are all you’re ever going to need to bring with you on a visit to Kurumba House, if that. Its idyllic seaside situation was quiet and peaceful. The good-natured staff team immediately enveloped us on arrival meaning that for most of our stay our feet were nowhere near the ground, though this was due in large part to the surplus of comfy seating and the fact that we could gaze out at the ocean even whilst lying in bed. Tekla cooked enthusiastically (provisions are on guest account) though if you fancy cooking for yourself then the staff will happily go out shopping on your behalf if you furnish them with a list. Tangalle is a very laid back beach resort with few places to go out and eat – there’s only one restaurant along Mawella Beach – but this matches the property’s nature perfectly. Kurumba has very few facilities (no swimming pool, TVs or music systems) however with a beach to explore, a sea to enjoy and a beautiful climate to soak up this is the type of place you visit to escape the distractions of everyday life.

Villa Kya

Villa Kya

Thailand » Koh Samui » Bo Phut

There’s a freshness and brightness about Villa Kya that’s quite exhilarating. Despite being situated so obviously high above the ocean waves, the villa almost has the feel of a luxury yacht.  We put it down to the gleaming white surfaces, the gently curved design that follows the contours of the hillside, the sail-like roof and, perhaps most of all, the stunningly positioned ‘Moon Terrace’, which rivals the most luxurious of top decks.

There is a tremendous choice of places to relax here.  Inside, our top marks went to the breakfast bar in the kitchen – what a great place to sip a coffee and start the day!  Outside, it was tougher to chose a winner:  On a lounger by the pool? On a bar stool in the pool? Enjoying a quiet read in the shade of the lazing lounge? Sipping a sundowner on the Moon Terrace?  They’re all up there, and they all have the most amazing views to boot.

Bedrooms are simply, stylishly and romantically furnished (especially the master) and beds are very comfortable.  There may not be acres of space in the guest rooms, but the views through the wide glass doors more than make up for that.  The villa only opened for business in August 2012 and everything is new and sparkling. The staff are cheerful and obliging and the owner/managers couldn’t be more helpful.  We highly recommend sampling the talented Khun Kiat’s pomelo salad and Thai chicken curry. Delicious!

L'Orchidee Residences - Villa Aranda X2

L'Orchidee Residences - Villa Aranda X2

Thailand » Phuket » Patong

We really enjoyed the beautifully presented Villa Aranda with excellent facilities. The views over Patong are stunning and the location is excellent for restaurants, shopping etc. Being close to Patong is not everyone’s choice but once in the villa you are well away from it. The huge open-plan living area is excellent, with a great terrace offering super views. The staff are good - from the security guards to the maids. This villa is excellent for large families, groups or two families travelling together. A family travelling with parents may appreciate the separate Annex.

We revisited this villa recently, three years after our initial stay, and were impressed to find the villa in immaculate condition, and it offers even better views than before with a new extension added to the first-floor terrace.

L'Orchidee Residences - Villa Cattleya C10

L'Orchidee Residences - Villa Cattleya C10

Thailand » Phuket » Patong

This graceful sea-view retreat set up in the hills overlooking Patong is one of the few villas in Phuket that can truly claim to offer the best of both worlds. Within minutes we could reach the busy beach resort town of Patong and delve into its myriad nightlife, dining and shopping choices – easily escaping back up into Villa Cattleya’s peaceful surrounds when we wanted to. Our worries disappeared as we sunk in and stretched out in style. The level of comfort is superb throughout the villa, from the plush living room furnishings to the fully shaded pool terrace with heaps of space for lounging or dining, to the private bedrooms. We could see a real sense of care throughout with high-quality craftsmanship in all the details including the wooden furnishings and the fresco-adorned wall along the pool.

Though a chef and in-villa service staff can be provided on request, we opted to be left to our own devices and ordered our food from the estate’s à la carte menu. Meals were brought quickly and were superb; mainly Thai with some innovative flourishes. Though the indoor dining table was lovely, we usually dined out on the terrace to best enjoy the sea view and the fan-cooled fresh air.

Overall, there’s something to satisfy everyone at Villa Cattleya C10: space, calm, a family-friendly environment, a terrific range of services and facilities for entertaining in style, and easy access to a wealth of attractions for those seeking more adventure – be it a challenging round of golf or a night out on the town. Kids will delight in having the choice of playing in the villa’s private pool or hanging out with other children in the estate’s communal pool and shallow children’s pool at the clubhouse, just a few minutes’ walk away.

L'Orchidee Residences - Villa Cattleya C5a

L'Orchidee Residences - Villa Cattleya C5a

Thailand » Phuket » Patong

Villa Cattleya C5a is among the few villas where the phrase, ‘having it all’, is not an overstatement. We could retreat completely into its tranquil and luxurious surrounds yet if the mood struck we could venture out to some of Phuket’s liveliest and most interesting dining and entertainment spots within minutes.

The vaulted roof and teak detailing make the villa look exceptionally majestic yet we felt very comfortable right away. We made full use of the terrace and pool areas and, although the pool was not huge, the lovely stone wall and elephant statues make it a nice oasis for soaking up the sea view while splashing around.

Though there are no live-in kitchen or cleaning staff (except by request, at extra charge), service here is very flexible and efficient. The meals we ordered in from the estate’s central kitchen were excellent, prepared in authentic Thai style with a few innovative touches, such as the laarb gai (minced chicken) patties that could be dipped in a spicy sauce. A daily maid service takes care of housekeeping and the estate manager readily dealt with our every request. The management team can also help organise larger events, and we were impressed by preparations for a team building event taking place around the shared pool area one evening during our visit.

With such a nice balance of shared space, privacy and great access to the beach and island attractions, we could find little reason why small families or couples with a wide range of interests would not have an excellent stay at Villa Cattleya C5a.
