Oh, how we loved this villa! There is something magical about lying on a sun lounger, on a cliff so high above the pounding waves that oxygen might become necessary, with a cold drink in your hand, a liberal coating of sunscreen on your skin and, best of all, nothing whatsoever on your agenda. This is the kind of view that inspires much of the world’s most beautiful poetry: so mesmerising that magazines may well remain unread.

When you do come down to earth, take the time to have a spa treatment in the jaw-dropping facility – the floor is covered in three inches of water and the treatment beds seem to float between the sea and the sky behind the billowing white curtains that surround it.

The service was impeccable and the food amazing, just what you might expect from highly trained professionals. Our Magnum-trained butlers were quick to spot an empty glass and could always sense a hungry tummy. Breakfasting on the shady terrace was a wonderful way to start the day: inspiring us to take on all the great things we’ve always wanted to do. Rather a shame, perhaps, that in the end we opted just to lie on the sun loungers gaze at the ocean and work on the suntan.

Highlights

The views and the abject luxury rate pretty highly by international standards. There is nothing here that you could possibly want for and nothing is too much trouble. The home cinema is exceptional, as is the spa!

Surprises

In the dry season when the winds get up it can be a bit breezy on the terrace but when the sun is shining and the weather is hot that can be a blessing. We really wanted to open up the villa to let the sea breeze come in and take over but the staff warned us to keep them shut because of the kleptomaniac monkeys that live in the neighbourhood. Nevertheless, the monkeys are highly entertaining to watch.
