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.

L'Orchidee Residences - Villa Suriya B2

L'Orchidee Residences - Villa Suriya B2

Thailand » Phuket » Patong

With its stunning sea-view location in a luxury enclave and close access to many island attractions, we truly enjoyed the best of both worlds at Villa Suriya. We relished the choice of either spending our days in pampered elegance relaxing by the pool and venturing out for a quiet stroll along Patong’s sands; or enjoying a night out on the town in the knowledge that it was only a short taxi ride back to our quiet villa. Having two master suites is a real plus for extended families or travelling couples, and we especially welcomed the high level of privacy offered by their downstairs location.

Though a chef and in-villa staff can be provided on request (extra charge), we were happy enough with the daily maid service and with the innovative Thai dishes we had delivered from the estate’s central kitchen. A large team of staff and contractors are employed to keep the estate in tip-top condition, and it really shows.

We did not bring our children along for this visit, but we think they would have had great fun swimming at the villa’s pool and watching the big cable TV (with a cartoon channel). And having the shared children’s pool nearby offers even more play-time options. Though there’s plenty to keep everyone busy in nearby Patong, the management team can arrange yacht trips, rounds of golf and other excursions, as well as in-villa massages which, much to our dismay, we ran out of time to try.

La Lagune

La Lagune

Thailand » Koh Samui » Laem Set

Sitting in the beachside sala at La Lagune, we were struck by the secluded feel of the place. Even though it's not that far to the main tourist beaches (Lamai is 10km away), you're totally removed from the commotion of Koh Samui and that's certainly one of the of the villa's main advantages. Day and night we enjoyed the benefits of total escape, helped by sensitive staff who remained unobtrusive unless we needed them. The only contact with outsiders was the occasional greeting from a passing fisherman, and having the sunset completely to ourselves was as much of a treat as the opulent surroundings we enjoyed it from (turning off the garden lights to star gaze at night is even better). The villa's open design and cool, tiled floors mean you can pad around barefoot in your beach wear, and with so many options for outdoor repose you're only ever fully indoors while sleeping (weather permitting of course - the villa's folding doors can all be closed during wind or rain). Staying in the master suite is a pleasantly private experience as the only view from the bed is across your private terrace to the sea. The owners are definitely active types and having so many options for recreation close at hand means that even kids will rarely feel the need to venture beyond the garden and beach. Having said that, it was fun to strike off and explore the coastal paths on the villa's two bicycles and drag a kayak out to deeper water so we could paddle to the nearby offshore islands. With delicious meals prepared to order by the chef, coming back to La Lagune at the end of the day was always a pleasure, sound in the knowledge that a blissful, private and chic retreat awaited our return.

Laguna Residence 57/5

Laguna Residence 57/5

Thailand » Phuket » Bang Tao Beach

We felt that the layout, size and design of this villa made it ideal for families and extended families. As well as the twin bedded room on the first floor (ideal for kids), the master bedroom is spacious enough for a baby cot and the queen bedroom on the ground floor would be great for elderly relatives. The maid’s room next to the utility area could also be an added attraction for those travelling with a helper.

Light flooded into the house during the daytime, and when we drew the pin-striped blinds at night they effectively wallpapered the rooms and completely transformed the atmosphere of the house. The gardens are generous and child-friendly, with a white wicker fence at the end of the lawn to make sure that youngsters don’t stray onto the fairway. Although there are other villas on both sides, we felt there was enough landscaping in between to give us adequate privacy. There are no live-in staff (although a manager is on call 24 hours a day) and the villa is primarily self-catering, but a maid cleans daily, pool boys and gardeners come twice a week, and a chef can be arranged with prior notice for a small fee. Food is prepared according to a menu at cost price. The management company can also assist with anything from trips and tours to transport, grocery shopping, maintenance and laundry services.

Villa Aliya - Laksmana Villas

Villa Aliya - Laksmana Villas

Indonesia » Bali » Greater Seminyak » Seminyak

We have no doubt that this villa is a great place for families and for entertaining. One of the bedrooms is also dedicated to the enjoyment of children, furnished with beanbags and equipped with soft toys and games, a large, flatscreen TV,DVD player and a good selection of kids’ movies. The staff really proved their ability to look after us, accommodating all of our last minute requests with willingness, ease and big Balinese smiles. The location in Seminyak is absolutely superb, and the villa is gorgeous!

Lansiya

Lansiya

Sri Lanka » South Coast » Tangalle

What an amazing villa! Everything from the magnificent setting to the food, the service and the comfort are second to none. Lansiya exudes character and personality through artistic touches and an intelligent design, whilst the staff’s warm and discreet nature was of just the right balance to ensure that we enjoyed ourselves but also felt very much at home.

What we really loved about this villa was its spaciousness and its privacy; you can enjoy the superb views without feeling hemmed in by walls as the gardens descend down the gently sloping hillside to the boulders beside the sea. We didn’t hear any traffic noise (what a relief!); instead there’s the unrelenting sound of the waves – especially loud and sensuous from the master suite. The sun sets almost directly in front of the property and with its generous lawn it would make an incredible location for a wedding or other special event.

We loved staying in the Lansiya Hill suite, the most private and exclusive bedroom. It’s a true couples’ hideaway but also perfect for parents looking to enjoy some luxurious private time whilst their older kids occupy Lansiya House (with its cosy TV Room on the ground floor). And we’d certainly encourage honeymooning couples to be decadent and book the whole property exclusively for themselves at just $100 on top of the Lansiya Hill rate. None of Lansiya’s bedrooms has air conditioning, but thanks to the breezy hillside location we didn’t miss it at all.

The food prepared by chef Sylvester is top quality; warm date pudding and butterscotch sauce served with afternoon tea was a treat as was our Japanese lunch feast! This passionate chef has 40 years experience in the food industry, learning his craft in Japan, India, Thailand and Europe. We loved that breakfast is different everyday and all bread, sauces, dips and accompaniments are freshly made. There are no menus; you discuss your daily requirements with Sylvester and all meals and soft drinks are included in the price.

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.

The Lavender House

The Lavender House

Sri Lanka » Hill Country » Pussellawa

We liked that The Lavender House blends authentic colonial hospitality with contemporary living as this resulted in just the right balance of comfort and personality. The location too, though isolated, complements the experience as views are of endless tea fields and mountains. As a couple, its privacy and seclusion felt romantic; however I imagine that the bungalow would be great, if not better for bigger groups. Families will appreciate the bungalow’s spaciousness; large lawn, big pool and generous grounds hosting a jogging track and clay tennis court provide plenty to entertain different members of the family; there are also many places both inside and out where pockets of privacy can be found – each suite’s own private garden is a delight. Aside from walking the tea trails and visiting a factory, there was little else to do in the immediate local area, making it was a good place to concentrate on thoroughly relaxing rather than feeling the pressure to explore – take some good books. Rooms are generously sized and although the master bedroom is a little larger than the others each room is tastefully decorated; we particularly loved the dreamy cushioned window seat in the twin room. The bathrooms were a real delight and we loved the generous selection of toiletries. Wine connoisseurs will appreciate the cellar’s selection of wine (including bubbly) and full bar; there’s more quantity and range than we have found elsewhere in the region. The staff were always professional and the chef’s cooking was excellent; we liked the fact that we could go into the kitchen and watch him prepare our meal or have an impromptu curry demonstration. Guests can use the kitchen too if they wish although given the quality of the food we feel this is unlikely. It was great being able to plug our iPod into the Bose sound system and listen to our own music even when down by the pool.

Layan Estate - Villa Omnia

Layan Estate - Villa Omnia

Thailand » Phuket » Bang Tao Beach

Villa Omnia makes for a very pleasant family holiday home. It benefits from being on a mature estate so avoids much of the construction malaise from which other estates suffer. The villa itself is spacious and very light thanks to lots of glass doors and windows. It is very well set up for families – an outstanding pool with good shallow section, toys, playroom and plenty of outside space to let off steam.

As with many recent construction projects in Phuket, the build is not of the highest standard (patchy paint, light terrazzo cracks, plasterboard walls) but these issues are very minor and would not detract from a great holiday – and the complex has a management company to fix any problems. The privacy is excellent as are the outside options – a lovely sala at the end of the pool, pleasant outdoor dining and good sun-trap terraces with loungers. The kitchen is modern and well equipped – nice touches like iced glasses in the freezer – but comes with almost no provisions so a supermarket shop is essential. Bedrooms are large and comfortable and the bathrooms very practical although note that one queen and twin bedroom share a bathroom – good for a family as access to the twin is either from outside or through the queen room.

Villa Leha Leha

Villa Leha Leha

Indonesia » Bali » East Coast » Sanur-Ketewel

Leha Leha is meticulously maintained, and looks as good as new despite it being ten years old. Granted the kitchen has been upgraded in the last two years but the rest of the villa is tidily kept, beautifully clean and the soft furnishings flush with colour. Judging by the photographs scattered around the property this is a cherished holiday home. It is independently run by the owner with the assistance of two resident managers in charge of handling guest relations both of whom we found to be polite, knowledgeable and able to speak good English. Pickups from the airport were included in the rate, and a car with driver (one of the managers) was available to us throughout our stay (first tank of petrol free). Since there are two master bedrooms, we felt this villa would be great for two families holidaying together as well as for groups of friends or one extended family. The dual storey pavilion certainly maximised living space, although in absence of ceiling fans the upper floor lounge tended to get quite hot during the day. The villa’s proficient resident cook offers Indonesian fare – though ordering in or dining out at one of Sanur’s many restaurants increases your options. It’s also possible to arrange for an Italian chef to cook for you at the villa, but fees are quite steep ($150-200 plus grocery costs), so we felt that this option might be best saved for a special occasion; that said, he is very highly recommended in the guest book so perhaps it’s worth the extra splurge!
