Kid Friendly Villas

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.

Claughton House

Claughton House

Sri Lanka » South Coast » Dickwella

Without doubt, this is one of Sri Lanka’s most engaging villas and in one of the most breathtaking locations on the island – the views are nothing short of spectacular. Its links to Geoffrey Bawa and its interesting, yet short, history makes a stay here all the more engaging. The house itself is fairly modest – there are no fancy mod cons and the simple yet imaginative design evokes the past as much as the present – however the new owners are currently upgrading the house. The interiors have already been given a sensitive facelift, and look lovely, whilst two more bedrooms and a TV lounge are due to be completed by the end of 2014; they were renovating existing buildings for these behind the main house at the time of our visit (March 2014) but we were not disturbed by the work at all.

Our favourite place to pass the time was around the main swimming pool (there is a second pool to the side of the property, close to the driveway). This cliff-top pool complements the house – it’s been here for a few decades and we liked its old-school geometric design. The different shades of blue reflected the sea beyond and the terrace surrounding it was scattered with sun loungers and beanbags, one of which was placed on a protruding corner from where we could sit and watch surfers in the bay below. A little staircase leads down the hillside to the beach, and it’s a lovely spot for long strolls, swimming or body boarding (there’s a big collection of boards in the house) with care for much of the year – the sea is fairly shallow.

The staff really went out of their way to ensure that we had everything we needed, in particular the lovely chef who produced some heart-warming food. We recommend his rice and curry, which we enjoyed by candlelight down by the pool. Make sure you have a chat to the maintenance manager who’s worked at the house from the very beginning. He showed us some 25-year-old photos of the house.

Coconut Grove

Coconut Grove

Sri Lanka » South Coast » Ahangama

Coconut Grove is a wonderful retreat which, despite its privacy and modern additions, including a swimming pool, offers a chance to experience life in an authentic Sri Lankan village. That said, we noticed on our recent visit that the area is seeing quite a lot of development in terms of small hotels and villas; the plus side of which being that the number of tourist-friendly restaurants is likely to increase.

The cottage is perfectly set up for families, especially as the two rooms to the front of the house have smaller double beds (or large singles), which would be perfect for children. However, it would be an equally good choice for a group of friends wishing to stay a little off the beaten track. The living areas – both inside the house and outside in the garden – offer plenty of cosy places to relax and private pockets for escape.

The wildlife is magical here, and right on your doorstep. Whilst sipping afternoon tea in the poolside pavilion we watched monkeys playing in the trees as birds twittered melodiously overhead. The large lawned garden is a fansasyland for roaming kids but supervision is necessary around the pool as it quickly gains depth.

The staff kept the house clean and tidy during our stay, and were on hand to assist us with anything we needed. The staff do not stay in the house at night although the gardener/watchman lives in a small building tucked independently to one side of the property. If the housekeeper is not needed to assist with making afternoon tea or dinner, you can dismiss her early and enjoy the run of the house all to yourselves.

Dea Villas - Villa Amy

Dea Villas - Villa Amy

Indonesia » Bali » Canggu area » Canggu

What the owners have done with the space at Villa Amy is incredible; so much has been fitted into the villa without overcrowding it. We don’t think we have ever before encountered such a large master bedroom, complete with huge hardwood beams stretching all the way to the lofty ceiling, polished floors, antiques, sitting areas and sliding glass doors leading out to a fish pond which appears to cascade into the swimming pool below. We felt a bit spoiled to be honest. An even greater feeling of space is conveyed by the clever use of wooden louvre shutters in the garden walls: lying beside the pool looking at views of the green swaying rice while cooling breezes drift through the shutters was pure bliss. Speaking of the pool, its low position means that when swimming or sun bathing you can’t help but look up and be mightily impressed by the architecture of the master bedroom. A beautiful place to simply chill!

Dea Villas - Villa Sarasvati

Dea Villas - Villa Sarasvati

Indonesia » Bali » Canggu area » Canggu

Two-and-a-bit years on from our original visit, Villa Sarasvati has matured and multiplied but lost none of its former beauty. Sarasvati is now part of an enclave of five villas (known as Dea Villas), so some of the neighbouring rice field land has been forfeited but there are still rice field views from the upper floor and all of the new buildings within the Dea Villa complex are now complete and available for holiday rentals, offering a whole host of renting options for large groups. The next-door Villa Radha (formerly known as the Gladak House) and its garden is now a separate entity (unless rented in conjunction with Sarasvati), but that’s okay because this is compensated by some new communal facilities, including a children’s playground, a gym and a dedicated spa. Overall, we concluded that Villa Sarasvati has been exceptionally well maintained and is still as eclectic as ever. With the addition of two more properties, the Dea Villas enclave is now busier and more commercial, so while the ambiance may have lost a little bit of its original laidback vibe, the team of staff has of course grown (they serve the whole enclave) and they have become even more slick and professional, yet we still found the service to be very personal.

Dea Villas - Villa Sati

Dea Villas - Villa Sati

Indonesia » Bali » Canggu area » Canggu

What we loved about Villa Sati (among many others things) was the privacy and the space. This is the sort of place where you can sneak away from your companions and hide in your own huge bedroom-come-sitting-room. All the rooms are the same so there’ll be no fights over who gets the best one. It was great to have use of all the communal facilities too, we both enjoyed an excellent massage in the spa, and managed a workout in the gym on the Powerplate machine.  For anyone planning an intimate Bali wedding, we thought the little amphitheatre in the garden next to the pool, would be a very cool setting for the nuptials.

Des Indes I

Des Indes I

Indonesia » Bali » Greater Seminyak » Seminyak

Our 2017 re-inspection of Villa Des Indes I revealed an immaculate, eclectic home that has been lovingly furnished by its owners to celebrate the rich heritage of Indonesia through a fine collection of antiques, artefacts, curios, local artwork, colonial prints and classic sculptures. The villa is a true delight, enhanced by its central location but very quiet and private feel. Once inside you are truly in your own world and, given the very gracious staff, a wonderfully enjoyable one at that. The chef prepared an excellent and beautifully presented meal during our stay – the Dory dish and ikan lilit (fish satay) were delicious; so it’s easy to imagine a full-blown dinner party in this gorgeous setting, illuminated by scores of flickering candles. Des Indes I will delight families and groups who appreciate being surrounded by a sense of history alongside the villa’s many contemporary luxuries.

In our opinion, it is still one of the most unique East-meets-West, old-meets-new villas in Bali.

Des Indes II

Des Indes II

Indonesia » Bali » Greater Seminyak » Seminyak

Des Indes Villa II is a hidden gem!  From the moment the bright red iron-studded entrance door swung open to reveal a row of saffron-robed stone-carved monks standing sentinel across the entrance pond, we were enchanted.  The clever layout makes the most of the space – land is at a premium in this uber-elite part of Seminyak, and we liked the way both (surprisingly large) bedroom suites were separated by the swimming pool, giving extra privacy.  The owners have a fine eye for Asian antiques and artefacts, and we loved the blend of heritage romance and modern luxury… where else can you take a bath surrounded by Chinese porcelain and Asian artefacts!

Favourite places to hang out? The huge four-poster bed swathed in mosquito netting, and the elegant marble-topped breakfast table by the pool. The staff greeted us with garlands of Frangipani flowers and refreshing ice-cold towels, and a special mention must go to the chef; his beautifully cooked Barramundi dinner made me so happy we chose to eat in rather than stroll down to La Lucciola!  We were one couple staying, and think this would be a rather lovely honeymoon spot; but imagine two couples or a family with two kids would be equally happy here.

Grand Cliff Nusa Dua

Grand Cliff Nusa Dua

Indonesia » Bali » Nusa Dua

If you’re looking for a luxurious destination villa, with spectacular views and true sense of space, where you can escape from everything and spend time with your family or friends, then this is the villa for you. With its attentive-yet-discreet service and every recreational facility at your fingertips, a 43-inch satellite-channel TV and Blu-ray DVD player in every bedroom, three different dining areas, and an abundance of comfy spaces and places to hang out, you can be together as a group or veer off on your own. In fact, with three floors, the villa is so big that you’ll lose each other within its depths. Most of the outdoor space is taken up by the pool and the massive pool terrace, which is wonderful for big groups, but we felt that it wouldn’t be so good for kids who want to run around kicking a ball. However, teenage kids (and adults) will love the games room, the bar, the karaoke and the abundance of TVs. We certainly did!
