Pantai Lima - Villa Waringin

Pantai Lima - Villa Waringin

Indonesia » Bali » Canggu area » Canggu

We stayed at Villa Waringin on a writers' conference and all agreed there could be no finer place for a coming together of creative minds. The villa's homely ambience makes you feel immediately relaxed, while complementary facilities like pull-down projector screens, plus a team of willing, able staff remove every possible hassle, leaving you to get on with the business of the day. The same ease would definitely apply on a holiday, and we tested this theory to the full whenever there was a break in proceedings. Reclining on the terrace sofas with a choice of teas and delicious snacks (the chef does an excellent Croque Monsieur) certainly got the creative juices flowing, as did lying on the cushioned sunbeds by the pool, while some of the best ideas actually emerged during the delicious barbecue dinner on the poolside lawn (not least the notion of a second helping of fresh prawns!). When it was time to retreat to our supremely comfortable bedrooms, flat-screen TVs and iPod docks ensured no one felt over-burdened with work worries before drifting off to sleep. In the morning a fabulous breakfast spread included fresh fruit, eggs with back bacon and pain au chocolat - ample fuel for the day ahead. Although it's a shame not to be able to swim in a sea so close (there are huge breakers and dangerous rip tides), we were more than happy to gaze and gasp at the waves, sound in the knowledge that come sunset we'd be immersed in the pool, watching the sky blush to greet the evening stars.

Villa Pemutih

Villa Pemutih

Indonesia » Bali » Jimbaran - Bukit » The Bukit

It is easy to become a little blasé when it is your job to stay in paradise holiday homes and report back on the findings, but walking into the gardens of Villa Pemutih and seeing that breathtaking view was a rapturous moment, and we knew that the next 24 hours was going to be blissful.

And so it was straight to the pool and the sunloungers on the cliff’s edge with a cold drink, a good book and some sunscreen. A cleverly placed tree provides the shade, while the birds, the cicadas and the ocean provide the music. The sweet Balinese staff bought us cold drinks as the afternoon wore on, and we watched the sunset from the cliff side balé. In the evening, a delicious Balinese feast was cooked for us by the talented kitchen team. We then retired to the super-comfy studio room to blast ourselves senseless with a couple of movies on the villa’s explosive home theatre system.

When the tide is low, do make your way down the cliff to the exposed reef for a bit of beachcombing among the rock pools. The water is calm and none too deep making it a fun, and safe, option for a paddle in the sea. Kids will also love the size of the villa grounds, where they can run around to their hearts’ content, and they’ll enjoy watching the birds in the aviaries. There are numerous species of trees in the garden, including flamboyant, frangipani, coral tree, custard apple, orange flowering saraca trees, acacia, cactus, mango, teak and yellow coconut.

Villa Pra-Nang

Villa Pra-Nang

Thailand » Phuket » Patong

With its spectacular views and spacious though intimate atmosphere we found Pra-Nang to be a very relaxing villa, ideal for families, groups of friends and couples who wish to be close to the action of Patong Bay but not right in the thick of it. The lack of garden however (the villa has only a stepped concrete terrace brimming with colourful potted plants) makes it less suitable for energetic younger children or toddlers who would need a lot of supervision. The bedrooms are all similar in décor, comfort and size which will save any squabbling about who sleeps where. Benefitting from the villa’s broad position on the headland, each room has been built on the same level to take advantage of the panoramic views. We felt that this also makes the villa more sociable as all rooms opens onto the wide pool terrace. The swimming pool is not so big, however there is a separate elevated jacuzzi pool that makes up for it. The lounge offers a comfortable place to appreciate the views, or a cosy atmosphere for watching a movie. We appreciated the gym’s private location on the ground floor, especially as kids noisily playing pool or table tennis are less likely to be a disturbance. The villa has WiFi internet access and a computer with printer/scanner/fax.

The cook prepares simple meals according to a menu (predominantly Thai food except for a couple of sandwich options) however BBQs, western meals and other preferences (special diets) can be catered for on request. We thought that the complimentary case of Singha Beer (and soft drinks) on arrival was a nice touch. While the villa staff speak only basic English, the manager is happy to assist with everything from travel arrangements (complimentary airport transfers) to restaurant reservations.

Pure Villa

Pure Villa

Indonesia » Bali » Canggu area » Canggu

We felt like royalty staying at Pure Villa. The staff were exceptional, not only in taking care of our every whim but also in creating moods to suit the moment. The sheer white elegance of the villa became a canvas for mood lighting at night; tall silver candle holders placed by the staff along the length of the veranda added a warm glow to the evening and lights in the pool turned the water fluorescent with a rainbow of colors. A Bose speaker system installed at every corner of the property meant yoga on the lawn (mats provided), walks around the estate, massages and swimming were all enjoyed with a soundtrack to suit, and the villa iPod was loaded with all the genres we could ask for. With little light pollution, the night sky was amazing, and from the master bedroom we could watch the stars and the sunrise from the comfort of our bed; hello luxury!    

With the in-house chef having exceptional skills in the preparation of Indonesian and Western food, we didn’t look much further than the villa for our meals; and all at only the cost of the shopping plus a 20% service charge. When we did venture out to discover the local sights, having two cars and two drivers on hand (8 hours per day inclusive of cost, petrol extra), and who knew the area so well, made things very easy.

Rumah Puro Blanco

Rumah Puro Blanco

Indonesia » Bali » Canggu area » Canggu

With four bedrooms and comfy living spaces, Rumah Puro Blanco is a great party pad for a group, or base for a family who will enjoy being pampered by the attentive Balinese staff. There’s a hidden kitchen off the guest kitchen, enabling the staff to prepare for dinner parties and functions out of sight. The minimalist structure is well designed; we particularly liked the kitchen, living area and ensuite bathrooms – although there are a number of edges and ledges that could be hazardous for young children.    

The pure white colour theme is rather heavenly. Lush rows of palms along the boundary wall, beside stepping stones that run the length of the pool, provide some colour and remind you that you are in fact still on planet earth. As if by magic, tall palm trees spring out of the Palimanan stone floor and greenery cascades from the first floor. Glass containers in the living area sprout green reeds – indeed it’s quite remarkable how lush this villa is considering it has absolutely no designated garden area.         

We enjoyed doing a few laps in the large pool, hanging out on the daybed in the balé and sunbathing on the comfy rattan lounges. The pool is interestingly designed with sculpted shallow areas perfect for sunbathing whilst keeping cool in the water.

Villa Pursang

Villa Pursang

Indonesia » Bali » Canggu area » Canggu

Villa Pursang offers the quintessential Bali holiday experience: it is a safe, comfortable, peaceful environment, yet not too far from the island’s popular beaches and towns. The large grassed garden and infinity-edge swimming pool with its adjacent thatched bale relaxation pavilion provide a beautiful focal point to the property and make the villa a great place for functions and parties, or a fabulous residence for a family holiday – with the practical advantage of having a kids’ room connected to the master bedroom. It’s suitable for most age groups, although some seniors may struggle with the stone steps that lead down to the guest bedrooms and garden (there’s no hand rail).  

We found the cook and maid to be very pleasant and professional – both speak good English. Although they live out, the cook’s hours are flexible; if you want her to stay late simply pay her overtime at her reasonable hourly rate. There is no suggestion menu but the chef is pretty capable of cooking anything from Indonesian cuisine to sandwiches, burgers and pasta and will buy the ingredients required (shopping done at no extra charge apart from a minimal amount to cover petrol ) and bring you receipts. .          

The villa has a great atmosphere at night, with its romantically floodlit garden and swimming pool. During the day the double lounger in the shade of the bale at the end of the pool was a favourite spot to relax and be served drinks in between time spent on the sun loungers around the pool working on our tans.
