With its gorgeous sea-view setting in Patong's hills, we found Villa Ansellia X1 to be the perfect holiday choice to enjoy opulent surrounds and some good old-fashioned pampering, without completely detach ourselves from the world. 'Carefree' best describes the experience here, with a great range of facilities, services and attractions easily available and close at hand. Every day was different. One day we retreated completely and lounged by the pool, ordering our meals in and catching up on some reading while stretched out on the deck chairs. Another day we wandered downhill into central Patong and plunged into its busy hawker-lined streets and shopping arcades, and when the heat and crowds got to be too much, we beat a hasty retreat to the villa.       

We were very impressed with the level of care taken in both the villa's design and upkeep. Service is efficient and professional; our requests were understood and swiftly taken care of. There's something to satisfy everyone’s holiday needs at Villa Ansellia, with 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 especially delight in having the choice to play in the villa's private pool or hang out with other children in the large pool and shallow children's pool at the clubhouse nearby.

Highlights

Most appealing for us was the villa’s tranquillity and the sea view, which is superb from all the villa’s front-facing rooms. By day, the curving white-sand bay of Patong and the sapphire sea beyond offers an inviting tropical vista, while by night the lights of the city twinkle and beckon in the valley below. Though built in 2006, the villa looks fresh and new having undergone a renovation just before our visit (June 2013).

Surprises

This villa had very few (non-positive) surprises for us, though having other villas close by in the estate does limit a sense of total privacy. Stairs and steep hills throughout the estate will be difficult for some to manage, though the free buggy service is a big help.
