The Pines

The Pines

Thailand » Phuket » Natai Beach

We had a very relaxing stay at The Pines. The first things to delight us were the shimmering sea views and the inviting large pool. The wooden interiors gave the villa a unique edge over others, and although simplicity rules at The Pines it did feel very luxurious indeed.

A family of four, we had plenty of space to sprawl, swim and socialise. Our teenage daughter enjoyed the entertainment room and she even had a go on the treadmill in the gym. The highlight for her was the pool where she seemed to spend hours ducking and darting around until the midday sunshine propelled her into the air-conditioned shade of the entertainment room to catch up with her buddies online.

We enjoyed the space available at the villa. Social evenings would be spent chatting in and around the pool, looking at the impressive book collection or just staring in wonder at the view with Gin and Tonic in hand. The pool and the sala overlooking the beach were our favourite places during the day and at sunset. The villa had ample shade so reclining on the sun loungers was something we could do for the majority of the day, reading, snoozing and enjoying the gentle sea breeze.

Having direct access to the beach was also a real hit. We enjoyed an early morning walk together as a family and watched the traditional fishing boats coming in with their fresh catch. We also snorkelled out to some rocks that were very close to the beach and saw an array of beautiful reef fish. A couple of colourful butterfly fish and a moorish idol played around and we saw some large rainbow-coloured parrot fish too.

All of the bedrooms were comfortable, and we had enough space for our luggage and clothes. I must say we fell in love with the large bathrooms. What a luxury, especially the stand-alone tub in the master.

The food was phenomenal, we didn’t make it out for dinner as the cook kept feeding us delicious food. The grilled salmon and Greek salad were a perfect combination and all the Thai delicious were a hit with the kids. The sea air made us want to go to bed early, but not before we did some stargazing. The lights are programmed to go off in the garden and beach-lawn areas at a certain time if no one is using the area, so due to the lack of light pollution we saw the sky at night as it should be, a vortex of swirling galaxies and shooting stars. This place is very special indeed.

Villa Yaringa

Villa Yaringa

Thailand » Phuket » Natai Beach

Settling into the embrace of stylish Villa Yaringa, with little to do but gaze across the endless sea and sky, we soon felt like cosseted celebrities hiding away from the world.  We were really taken with the villa’s terrace and gardens, which are arranged in different sections and levels like a giant-sized chessboard undulating towards the sea.  The sunken lounge in the middle of the terrace is a fine spot to gather for sundowners, and we also loved relaxing in the shade of the trees on the “island” that rises in the middle of the pool.  The views – an unblemished panorama of sea, sand and sky – are simply breathtaking. 

Our family had a quiet visit to Yaringa, but having seen the wonderful pool, outdoor entertaining areas and sea views, we felt it would be a great place to host a party; mingling poolside with cocktails under the tropical night sky.  Weddings and events of up to 40 people may be hosted here (an event fee applies).

We think that Yaringa’s layout and facilities are especially well suited for couples holidaying together, with the three bedrooms of similar size that are set apart from one another for privacy.  (Although there might be a battle for the ground-floor bedroom, which has a coveted position closest to the beach and by the pool!)

Bacaya

Bacaya

Thailand » Koh Samui » Bang Rak-Big Buddha

Although we were only on a short break, we would happily have stayed longer at Bacaya if only for the deserted beach and delicious pool. The roadside location caused initial concern, but once ensconced and surrounded by tropical greenery looking out over the untroubled bay, the traffic noise quickly dissolved and the holiday took hold. For a private house at this level, palatial surroundings were never an expectation. Happily though, the layout, facilities and warm welcome exceeded our predictions.

Bacaya was clearly built as an alternative to hotel accommodation and in that respect more than lives up to requirements. The main living and dining area resembles a studio apartment. Everything is close to hand, with additional benefits such as a fully equipped kitchen and standing fridge freezer that we quickly stocked from the local supermarket as a value substitute for the in-room facilities provided by hotels in a similar price range. The full-time maid prepared a fine daily breakfast and was a mine of local information despite limited English. She was more than happy to help with provisioning (everything from sunscreen to electrolyte), so the absence of more full-time staff was never a cause for complaint.

With a varied choice of restaurants and bars within walking distance, it would be easy to hit the town every night. For pleasant evenings in, we found the garden gazebo proved an ideal spot for extended dinners, while late night dips in the private pool added to the joy. Although the master suite outshines the smaller guest bedroom, both are comfortable with plenty of space to make them your own. Bacaya is not a choice for large families or gatherings, but certainly a great place for couples or small families to get away from it all without completely cutting off from the island's diversions.

Villa Belle

Villa Belle

Thailand » Koh Samui » Plai Laem

Villa Belle catches the breeze perfectly from its hilltop position. And the views! We loved the couches on the deck – with their white cushions and low coffee table they made the perfect spot for an afternoon read over a cup of tea. The WiFi signal is good out here too, so you can catch up on emails while soaking up the sun – just watch out for ‘laptop tan’ on the thighs.

As evening arrived we were reluctant to leave the view, so chose to dine outside (pleasantly surprised that the elevation and breeze meant we weren’t pestered by mosquitos). Samui’s resorts let off fireworks most evenings, and it was as though we were being treated to our own private show. Then there are the luminous fluorescent green lights that appear on the horizon as it gets dark. At first glance it looks like alien spacecraft is coming in to land but, in fact, the lights belong to night fishing boats and are to attract squid to the surface. The villa’s attractive lighting shines at night – in both senses of the word – and our turn-down was unique with towels arranged to form of a heart and sprinkled with flowers.

Should you decide to hire a chef, there’s a comprehensive selection menu at the villa, or you can browse the recipe book of Thai dishes for even more choice. The chef prepared some pasta and a Greek salad for us, both of which were well made and tasty. Comfortable beds dressed with white linen and with a choice of foam and feather pillows, meant a peaceful sleep before our pre-breakfast swim. Khun Noom sets out an impressive Continental breakfast, and thanks to the villa’s state-of-the-art coffee machine we could enjoy cappuccinos too.

Blue Samui

Blue Samui

Thailand » Koh Samui » Bang Por-Nathon

There's something refreshingly independent about Blue Samui. The secluded setting is quite unusual for a fast developing island because there are no other properties surrounding the villa (bar one, a little further down the hill, which barely enters the view). This means you quickly relax into your own, private world – shoes and watch off, beachwear on. Once you've stocked the fridge at one of the island's big supermarkets, the urge to venture out fades, at least during the day. The homely atmosphere, combined with abundant on-hand facilities lets you set your own schedule and this generally involves little more than eating, lounging, reading and drifting into the view. Of course, unless you're someone that sees cooking as a leisure activity, the lack of a chef means dining out becomes part of the routine, but with a hire car there are plenty of options close by. The two on-site staff are very keen to please and will happily serve snacks and drinks so you don't have to leave you sun lounger too often. A poolside barbecue is also a must at least once during your stay. The evening light makes those breathtaking views almost surreal. Although the guest bedrooms share a bathroom, the rooms themselves are nicely furnished, spacious and the wide verandah is almost an extra lounge. The views from the nicely hidden bath tub in the master suite make bathing a special pleasure that adds to the indulgence in what, for us, was a pleasingly private and relaxing island retreat.

L'Orchidee Residences - Villa Cattleya C10

L'Orchidee Residences - Villa Cattleya C10

Thailand » Phuket » Patong

This graceful sea-view retreat set up in the hills overlooking Patong is one of the few villas in Phuket that can truly claim to offer the best of both worlds. Within minutes we could reach the busy beach resort town of Patong and delve into its myriad nightlife, dining and shopping choices – easily escaping back up into Villa Cattleya’s peaceful surrounds when we wanted to. Our worries disappeared as we sunk in and stretched out in style. The level of comfort is superb throughout the villa, from the plush living room furnishings to the fully shaded pool terrace with heaps of space for lounging or dining, to the private bedrooms. We could see a real sense of care throughout with high-quality craftsmanship in all the details including the wooden furnishings and the fresco-adorned wall along the pool.

Though a chef and in-villa service staff can be provided on request, we opted to be left to our own devices and ordered our food from the estate’s à la carte menu. Meals were brought quickly and were superb; mainly Thai with some innovative flourishes. Though the indoor dining table was lovely, we usually dined out on the terrace to best enjoy the sea view and the fan-cooled fresh air.

Overall, there’s something to satisfy everyone at Villa Cattleya C10: 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 delight in having the choice of playing in the villa’s private pool or hanging out with other children in the estate’s communal pool and shallow children’s pool at the clubhouse, just a few minutes’ walk away.

L'Orchidee Residences - Villa Cattleya C5a

L'Orchidee Residences - Villa Cattleya C5a

Thailand » Phuket » Patong

Villa Cattleya C5a is among the few villas where the phrase, ‘having it all’, is not an overstatement. We could retreat completely into its tranquil and luxurious surrounds yet if the mood struck we could venture out to some of Phuket’s liveliest and most interesting dining and entertainment spots within minutes.

The vaulted roof and teak detailing make the villa look exceptionally majestic yet we felt very comfortable right away. We made full use of the terrace and pool areas and, although the pool was not huge, the lovely stone wall and elephant statues make it a nice oasis for soaking up the sea view while splashing around.

Though there are no live-in kitchen or cleaning staff (except by request, at extra charge), service here is very flexible and efficient. The meals we ordered in from the estate’s central kitchen were excellent, prepared in authentic Thai style with a few innovative touches, such as the laarb gai (minced chicken) patties that could be dipped in a spicy sauce. A daily maid service takes care of housekeeping and the estate manager readily dealt with our every request. The management team can also help organise larger events, and we were impressed by preparations for a team building event taking place around the shared pool area one evening during our visit.

With such a nice balance of shared space, privacy and great access to the beach and island attractions, we could find little reason why small families or couples with a wide range of interests would not have an excellent stay at Villa Cattleya C5a.

L'Orchidee Residences - Villa La Cigale C11

L'Orchidee Residences - Villa La Cigale C11

Thailand » Phuket » Patong

With its stunning sea-view location in a luxury enclave and close access to many island attractions, we truly enjoyed the best of both worlds at Villa La Cigale. We relished the choice of spending our days in pampered elegance relaxing by the pool then going for a stroll along Patong's sands; or enjoying a night out on the town in the knowledge that it was only a short taxi ride back to our peaceful villa.

Though a chef and in-villa staff can be provided on request (extra charge), we were happy enough with the daily maid service and with the innovative Thai dishes we had delivered from the estate’s central kitchen. A virtual army of staff (45 in all) are employed to keep the estate in tip-top condition, and it really shows.

We did not bring our children along for this visit, but we think they would have had great fun swimming at the villa's pool, watching the big cable TV (with a cartoon channel) and venturing out to the shared children's pool nearby. Though there's plenty to keep everyone busy in nearby Patong, the management team can arrange yacht trips, rounds of golf and other excursions, as well as in-villa massages which, much to our dismay, we ran out of time to try.
