If your kids pine for a room of their own then our four bedroom villas could suit your family well. Four bedroom villas will also appeal to groups of friends and handfuls of couples looking for more facilities and that little bit of extra space. They'll often come with one twin bedded room, giving even more flexibility.


Jivana Beach Villas - Villa Ananda

Jivana Beach Villas - Villa Ananda

Thailand  »  Phuket  »  Natai Beach

Unique, luxurious, private and peaceful … Villa Jivana Ananda is a superb illustration of a private villa managed with such expertise that it exudes all of the convenience of a six star hotel. Beach holidays are at their best when, at the end of a long, sandy and salty day, you can shower, refresh and enjoy a long cool drink and a divine meal prepared by the chef.

At Villa Ananda, our days were filled with swims in the ocean, searching for shells in the rock pools, enjoying fabulous Thai cuisine and relaxing in style. It is the perfect choice for families or friends. The villa is safe and practical for children – ours had an absolute ball here - yet sufficiently private and certainly spacious enough to give everyone ample room to themselves. Ananda has to be one of the best villas we have seen in Asia. Note this villa does not permit weddings or large functions. If this is something you are interested in look at its sister, Villa Shanti.

Sayang d'Amour

Sayang d'Amour

Indonesia  »  Bali  »  Seminyak

Sayang d’Amour is a veritable palace, and can’t fail to please. If you like opulence and grandeur, the colour purple, intricate detailing, Moorish arches, palatial bedrooms, indulgent bathing facilities, an astounding collection of objets d’art, a stellar kitchen, discreet staff, and plenty of activities and games for the kids, all just a short walk from the beach and Bali’s best restaurants, then perhaps you should stop your villa search and push “book Villa Sayang d’Amour” right now.

It took us ages to tour the villa simply because there is so much visual distraction (in the best possible way). Curiosity forced us to take the long and lingering roundabout route through the main house via the kitchen, living and dining room, and office/TV room, taking in all the detailing, the furnishings and décor (including hundreds of Moroccan-styled floor tiles) before we even reached the garden. Eighty percent of the materials, furnishings and artefacts have been imported from Morocco by the French owners to recreate a private fantasy surrounded by high walls, so while it may be true that the villa doesn’t have much of a connection with Bali, it’s fun to fantasise!  

And although there is a chef on hand to work magic in that gourmet kitchen, being positioned in Petitenget means that some of the best restaurants in (dare we say) Asia are literally within easy walking distance. Having the super stylish W Retreat and Potato Head Beachclub as neighbours gives you the (again walking distance) choice to hang out with the movers and shakers and catch the beachclub vibe – should the privacy of your palace prove too much.
At the time of our visit (June 2013) the villa was still very new and the staff not quite up to the slick standard that you might expect from a property of this calibre. But it is early days, and from what we saw we expect they will achieve service of the highest level before too long.

Ban Suriya

Ban Suriya

Thailand  »  Koh Samui  »  Lipa Noi

Ban Suriya is one of those villas where, as reviewers, you find yourself looking for something negative just to tick the ‘Surprises’ box. We failed.

Our time passed far too quickly at Ban Suriya.  In fact, a month would probably be needed to enjoy the villa to the full. It's not only the salubrious surroundings that stand out, it's the way everything seems to go that extra mile to please.  There's not just a computer, there's an iMac packed with tunes that you can play through Bose speakers in the lounge and poolside sala (gazebo).  The gym is not only well-equipped, it has a fridge, and a plunge pool bigger than some other villas' main pool.  Even the DVD collection includes films you wish you'd remembered to buy at the airport.

Ironically, even with so many options we found ourselves drawn to the simplest – the tree house by the beach. The staff is clearly proud to be part of the Ban Suriya experience and the live-in manager was knowledgeable and keen to help us appreciate the villa's pleasures. Although each bedroom is noticeably different, with no one losing out, the master is clearly the most extravagant with its terrazzo bath tub and ensuite lounge. Clever design touches in the guest rooms like direct pool and jacuzzi access, indulgent semi-outdoor bathrooms and hand-picked, stylish furnishings ensure everyone is content, while those staying the twin bedroom by the games room and gym or cosseted in the beachfront pavilion also enjoy complete privacy and independence.

Eight people is probably the minimum number you would need to fully appreciate this villa (there's an option to rent four bedrooms outside peak season), otherwise you might struggle to appreciate its exuberance.

Villa Pushpapuri

Villa Pushpapuri

Indonesia  »  Bali  »  Sanur-Ketewel

You cannot fail to enjoy Villa Pushpapuri – we certainly did during our stay. The staff were very helpful, the food was good and the setting superb. It was a real treat to be able to see and hear the sea from almost everywhere - by the fabulous swimming pool, at dinner (inside or out) or from most of the bedrooms. We also really enjoyed retiring to the underground bar in the evening for a beer and game of pool. The villa is only a few years old (2006) but the quality of finish is excellent and the maintenance first class which it has to be given its exposed coastal location. The gardens are a delight and the bright interiors very enjoyable. Villa Pushpapuri would make an excellent choice for families as there is a load to do.

Villa Asada

Villa Asada

Indonesia  »  Bali  »  Candidasa

Returning to Villa Asada after three years we were really pleased by the way in which it has evolved to become a truly magnificent family holiday villa with stunning views over the spectacular Amuk Bay. Since our original visit, the property has changed hands and undergone an extensive upgrade, with an enormous amount of thought put into the provision of guest needs in the form of deep comfort and some great new facilities (including a poolside bar, and a gym).  The Asian food we had was excellent (best satay sauce ever!) – do note though that the villa is a good hour away from major provisioning so whilst local food can be provided at relatively short notice, more complex meals need a little more planning. As such there is a restaurant style house menu and an advanced order menu where 24 hours notice is requested. The chef (included) will help out with all your meal planning though.

Villa Jajaliluna

Villa Jajaliluna

Indonesia  »  Bali  »  Seminyak

Just across the road from the prestigious resorts of The Oberoi, The Legian and The Samaya, and a brief, worse-for-wear stagger home from Bali’s best nightspots, we found Jajaliluna’s location to be superb. The beach is almost on the doorstep while restaurants, fashion boutiques and high-end retail shops are within such easy reach that our credit card companies were loving us for it. Despite being in the middle of all this downtown action, Villa Jajaliluna is a serene and quiet oasis. We spent a very nice few hours by the pool, catching up on our magazine reading from the villa’s (very) updated selection of GQ, FRV, Vogue and The Sunday Times Travel magazines. After spending the latter part of the afternoon on the beach and enjoying a sundowner or three at Ku Dé Ta, we retired to the villa, ordered home delivery of gourmet burgers from the restaurant next door, cranked up the air-conditioning and settled down for a night of cinematic heaven on the big flat-screen in the TV lounge. Tarrantino never looked so good!  We came back to Jajaliluna at the end of 2012 to find that a brand new state of the art kitchen had been added on to the side of the dining room, something which is guaranteed to make this already hyper family-friendly villa even more popular.

Umah Daun

Umah Daun

Indonesia  »  Bali  »  Umalas-Kerobokan

Seriously spacious, perfectly configured and delightfully uncluttered, Umah Daun was an absolute pleasure to stay in.  The gentle curves of the building mimic the contours of the rice terraces, and the ponds that wrap around the ground floor, coupled with the glass doors that fold right back, made us feel like we were part of the scene rather than just looking at it.

Villas of this size can be a little austere and overwhelming, but there is enough colour in the décor and verdant landscape at Umah Daun to make it feel warm and intimate.  Our favourite design feature was the beautifully carved antique door shutters coloured in shades of teal and turquoise, which make stunning features on the white walls, as well as lovely bed heads in the childrens’ rooms.  Bedrooms are large and very comfortable and there are plenty of daybeds and sofas piled high with plump cushions that provide comfortable vantage points for soaking up the views and the peaceful ambiance.  It is such a lovely space, and the staff took such good care of us, that we didn’t really feel the need to go anywhere, but it was good to know that both the beach and Seminyak were easy to reach should we fancy a sunset walk or a meal out.

Jivana Beach Villas - Villa Jia

Jivana Beach Villas - Villa Jia

Thailand  »  Phuket  »  Natai Beach

As a beach escape, Villa Jivana Jia takes a lot of beating. Its location is excellent as is the long list of in-villa facilities and the accompanying service. We liked the five-star-hotel-style greeting, with cold towels and welcome drinks – this place lifts service levels to a very high standard.  The villa menu is extensive and lovers of Thai food will not be disappointed with either the taste or presentation of the dishes - Western choices are also available. There’s also a good wine list but for some choices you may need to order a day in advance.     

The remoteness of the villa means that those wanting to see the sights of Phuket will have to organise a car and might spend some time in it. On our short visit we didn’t leave the property except to walk along the beach, but for longer stays a rental car is a must. The villa is well equipped for any weather conditions with books, board games and TVs for wet weather, and bikes, kayaks and the wonderful pool for when the sun is shining. Villa Jia’s position, right on the edge of a beautiful deserted beach, definitely sets it above most of the competition.

Villa San

Villa San

Indonesia  »  Bali  »  Ubud

To be this close to the centre of vibrant Ubud but be surrounded by so much space, peace and comfort is a rare treat. Returning to the sanctuary of Villa San’s impressively long lap pool, lovely lawn and big comfy bedrooms and bathrooms after a hard day’s shopping or sight-seeing in and around Ubud was a delight. We were royally looked after by the lovely staff, who were keen to make sure that we enjoyed our stay and equally keen to share their knowledge of the area and the culture and customs of this lovely part of the island.

The master suite gets top marks for luxury, comfort and sheer quality. There are no TVs in the bedrooms (they get points for that, from us) but there are excellent TV/DVD/music systems in the two entertainment rooms and a smaller set, plus electronic games console , in the playroom. Bring your own DVDs though, as the owner’s collection is pretty small. Ditto iPods for the docks in every bedroom.

The villa is well-equipped for young children and extended families with three twin-bedded rooms and a great playroom. Having all the accommodation on one level is also be a big plus for guests that have trouble with steps.

The cool shady balé at the top end of the swimming pool is big enough to seat everyone, even where there’s a full house, and with Bose speakers installed in the rafters it makes the perfect place to chill out, enjoy the tropical scene and thank your lucky stars that you are staying at Villa San.

Oh yes, and we couldn’t help but imagine what an absolutely lovely place Villa San would be – marquee on the lawn, glass of Champagne in the hand, music drifting through the balmy evening air – for a casual wedding reception or other special celebration!

Amilla – 4 bedroom villa residence 1

Amilla – 4 bedroom villa residence 1

Maldives  »  Maldives  »  Maldives

Pinch me, I’m dreaming!  Surely this is heaven on earth?  Flying over coral atolls strung like pearls on a necklace, and sandbanks that sparkle in the sunlight, I knew we were in for a treat long before we arrived.  By the time we stepped onto the jetty to a phalanx of staff welcoming us to our ‘island home’, I was head over heels in love.  The Amilla Beach Villa Residences really are very special.  This is an ultra-luxe destination with a relaxing island vibe and a generous heart-and-soul spirit. 

We kicked off our shoes and kicked into the island groove (even the seaplane pilot was barefoot):  swaying in the hammock alongside the hypnotic lagoon waters, listening to the serenade of the koveli bird; feasting on the many treats procured from the complimentary Providore grocery list, that filled our fridge as if by magic.  (Turns out the villa came with its own magician –  Munaadh, our hugely engaging Katheeb (house manager) who enriched our stay immeasurably.  He proved to be a mind reader able to anticipate our every whim, and shared his unbridled passion for the island with us.)  He also organised a fabulous seafood-and-champagne barbecue at home – one of the many culinary highlights of our stay.

Sauntering along sandy paths through coconut groves, past ancient Banyan trees, we were amazed by the number of activities available across the island. Sure, you can have the laziest, most relaxing vacation ever – I would gladly have spent my entire time at the sensational Javva Spa – but the chance to go dolphin watching and swimming with mantas was too tempting.

A shout-out for the astonishing array of restaurants with mouthwatering menus can’t be forgotten.  Sunset cocktails followed by a fresh-from-the-sea meal at the over-water Feeling Koi fusion restaurant is an absolute must; I admit to piling on the pounds during my stay.

It’s easy to lose all sense of time at Amilla Beach Villa Residences.  In fact, ‘island time’ really does exist here, as the Amilla visionaries set their clocks two hours ahead of Male so guests can enjoy extra hours of daylight; how’s that for above-and-beyond service!  A sign at the resort’s Empire Beach Club claims “Happiness is not a destination, it’s a way of life”.  What a perfect epithet for our stay!
