Nirwana Golf  Villas - Ocean and Golf

Nirwana Golf Villas - Ocean and Golf

Indonesia » Bali » Canggu area » Seseh-Tanah Lot

Even though you’re almost on the fairway of one of Asia’s best golf courses, you don’t have to be a golfer to enjoy a stay at this villa. Private homes with beachfront locations are not in abundance on Bali’s south-west coast, which makes Ocean and Golf a particularly good find as well as being good value. There are few better spots to enjoy the famous Bali sunsets than from this villa’s breezy balcony.        

Ocean and Golf incorporates the best of both worlds; a quiet and private residence which, for an additional daily fee per person, also has access to leisure facilities at the neighbouring 5-star resort – you can even order room service (although you do have your own cook who prepare meals from a suggestion menu charging only the cost of ingredients plus 20% service charge). However for guests who want to venture out to experience the shopping, restaurants and nightlife in town, this villa is a little remote (Seminyak, the popular entertainment hub, lies 23km south). We enjoyed walking around the sprawling grounds and whizzing from the villa to the hotel lobby in our golf buggy. The view of Tanah Lot temple from Cendana, one of the award-winning restaurants at the Pan Pacific Nirwana Bali resort, is magnificent – especially at sunset.    

Ocean and Golf is an ideal base for a group of golfers or a golfer who wants to bring the family along. It is sensible for seniors – there are two downstairs bedrooms if steps are difficult to navigate. Whilst there is a twin bedroom for children upstairs and plenty of TV’s to go around. As long as they don’t wander onto the fairway, it is a very safe environment for kids, and the complimentary facilities at the Pan Pacific Nirwana Bali  resort will keep children busy for weeks.

Nirwana Golf Villas - Villa Arjuna

Nirwana Golf Villas - Villa Arjuna

Indonesia » Bali » Canggu area » Seseh-Tanah Lot

If you are going on a golf holiday – and let’s face it you can’t beat the double win combination of not only Bali, but one of the best courses in Asia – living on site is such a privilege. The great thing about Villa Arjuna is that when you hole out on 18 in the humid tropical heat it’s only a five-minute drive back to the villa where lunch, cold beers, and a cool swimming pool await you.

There are no swimming beaches or independent fine-dining restaurants in the immediate vicinity, but the Nirwana Bali Golf Resort is a five-star facility with plenty of contemporary dining options including a fine-dining restaurant of its own. A spa and health club, tennis courts and a kids’ club are just some of the other attractions for families. Best of all, the giant resort pool with 54m hydro-slide is perfect for keeping the kids amused all day long (extra charges apply for use of resort facilities – see rates page). Players therefore shouldn’t feel at all guilty about turning their better halves and quarters into golf widows and orphans…they just won’t care!

Nirwana Golf Villas - Villa Senja

Nirwana Golf Villas - Villa Senja

Indonesia » Bali » Canggu area » Seseh-Tanah Lot

Villa Senja is not a swanky hi-tech villa, but this is reflected in the price, which is especially good when you take into account the discounts that you are going to get on your golf rates. This is the original luxury Bali style; commonly found in villas and hotels that were built in the ‘90s.Things move fast in Bali, especially in the field of design, so the style looks a bit dated these days, and is sometimes referred to as ‘Bali for beginners’. Nevertheless, the architecture, thatched roofs, local stonework, interior design and furnishings remain both charming and very tropical. There are numerous benefits to being linked to the resort; apart from all the aforementioned facilities, there is an on-site generator (so you won’t get any of the power cuts, which are unfortunately rather common in Bali) and the water pressure in the showers is great (again, this is something that can sometimes be a bit hit and miss in Bali). The villa is a long way from the delicatessens of Seminyak (18km), so if you want meals created with gourmet ingredients you will need to let the staff know well in advance. Local specialties with fresh local ingredients are therefore the cook’s forte, and you can always enjoy fine dining at the resort.

The Old Lady at the Sea

The Old Lady at the Sea

Sri Lanka » South Coast » Galle

The Old Lady at the Sea offers excellent value for money, especially when filled to its full capacity of 20 guests. The villa is also very well situated – right beside the sea and only a short drive to both Hikkaduwa and Unawatuna beaches, as well as Galle’s famous fort.

Despite touches of modernity in the form of terrazzo floors, air conditioning and TVs/DVD players, we thought that the ‘Old Lady’ felt more old-fashioned than fashionably colonial. It is, however, kept spick and span by the friendly staff who are led by a manager who made every effort to help and please.  The female staff and the manager share the cooking, and each has their own speciality dish. Guests may also self-cater as and when they wish.

We also noticed that bedrooms and bathrooms in the ‘Old Lady’ were a little smaller and darker than the ‘Young Lady’s’ rooms, which opened straight onto the pool and garden. For in-villa entertainment there’s a good stock of DVDs and CDs, as well as five iPod docks, and for things to do beyond the villa there are a number of restaurants, shops, activities and beaches within a 15-minute drive.

Villa Oost Indies

Villa Oost Indies

Indonesia » Bali » Greater Seminyak » Seminyak

With its lush tropical gardens and vintage design, Villa Oost Indies provides a breath of fresh air in Seminyak – both literally and metaphorically.  Recent years have seen land prices soar in this vibrant neighbourhood, so newer villas tend to have little or no garden.  They also tend to be quite modern and minimalist in style, so it’s lovely to have the chance to stay somewhere that is so unashamedly colonial in design.  We liked the sense of space created by a generous lawn and found the courtyard gardens totally enchanting with their sprawling pandanus palms, leafy ferns and palm trees grafted with purple orchids. 

We always love exploring Seminyak, and checking out all the new restaurants and bars, so the location was perfect – and so close to the beach too!   Yet we equally liked being able to escape to such a peaceful haven.  The spacious bedrooms, with their sitting rooms and beautiful bathrooms, added to the sense of getting away from it all, and definitely make up for the smallish living room pavilion.  While we don’t have kids, we could see how conducive Oost Indies is to families, with plenty of space for kids to play, and convenient sofa beds in the sitting rooms, which can sleep a child.  The option of twin beds in the third bedroom also no doubt comes in handy.

The staff are wonderful and were a definite highlight of our stay at Villa Oost Indies.  Their traditional welcome and the sense of warmth and inclusion perfectly fits the colonial style of the villa.  We felt more like honoured guests than paying customers and nothing was too much trouble.

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.
