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.


Grand Villa Noi

Grand Villa Noi

Thailand  »  Phuket  »  Natai Beach

Passing through coconut tree groves, catching glimpses of rice paddies and the occasional water buffalo, our mood was already set for a relaxing tropical holiday as we approached the villa.

Grand Villa Noi lived up to all our expectations. It is a spectacular five-bedroom villa with direct access to the pristine Natai Beach, something that we enjoyed thoroughly as we love taking walks on the sand. The villa features lavish interiors and comfortable living spaces. We especially appreciated the fine attention to detail, with massive floor-to-ceiling glass doors allowing us gorgeous views of the sea, the sky and the garden. The 28-metre infinity pool spilling onto the beach was a favourite with our group, as some of us lounged on the timber deck while others played games in the family room.

Perfect for families and large groups of friends, Grand Villa Noi has ample space for ten people. The fully staffed villa has an excellent living area with a range of entertainment options and facilities. Peaceful and tranquil, the villa features lavish interiors and a wonderful mix of Thai and modern designs. 

At Grand Villa Noi, our days were filled with many swims in the ocean, long walks on the pristine beach, lazing by the infinity swimming pool and catching up on sleep. Dining on delicious, authentic Thai cuisine was also a highlight of our stay. The children enjoyed the designated children’s seating area, and took advantage of the tables and chairs to spend their days doodling and reading books. 

We wanted a relaxing holiday away from the crowds, and Grand Villa Noi was the perfect spot for it. The villa’s semi-rural location, north of Phuket International Airport, worked well for us as we wanted to really disconnect and immerse ourselves in Thailand’s superb natural surroundings.

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.

The View

The View

Thailand  »  Koh Samui  »  Taling Ngam

Although only two of us visited the View, we could appreciate just how ideal this villa would be for group holidays and special celebrations – it really is designed for entertaining. Villa manager, Khun Opal, and her assistant, Khun Nokkie, as well as several other unobtrusive staff, keep the villa immaculate and cater to guests’ every whim, including arranging parties.

We arrived late afternoon and were welcomed with refreshing homemade lemonade. We didn’t have to wait long to witness Taling Ngam’s famous sunset – with Khun Opal’s signature cocktails as the cherry on the top. We gave the chef carte blanche at dinnertime, our only requirement being that the meal was vegetarian. He served a vegetarian Thai green curry with steamed rice, sesame seeds and pumpkin, and deep-fried tofu with a tamarind sauce. Both dishes were beautifully presented and delicious, with just the right amount of spice.

As Tech-junkies, we enjoyed this Mac-happy villa. Not only is there an iMac computer for guest use, but this also controls the entertainment centre, from the music that’s piped throughout the villa and garden, to the Apple TV with over 700 movies and the iPod with over 4,000 songs to select. We could sync our own iPads, and MacBooks with the system too. It was such a tough choice whether to watch a movie on the indoor living room projector, the outside lounge projector, or even on the lawn near the beach, that we gave up and decided to take advantage of the blissful peace and quiet and catch up on some reading instead!

We woke to cheerful birdsong and, with the touch of a bedside button, remote-controlled blinds let in the morning light and the endless sea views. Energised on return from our early morning walk along the villa’s virtually private beach, the smell of freshly baked croissants and coffee lured us to the dining room where we enjoyed a breakfast accompanied by views of the Five Islands.

We only wish we’d had more time to take full advantage of the View’s amazing facilities: kayaking around the bay, a friendly game of croquet on the lawn, an invigorating muay Thai lesson with a personal trainer, or a cooking lesson with the chef. We could only imagine how much a child would enjoy exploring this villa –especially with its dedicated children’s wing – although we did discover that with the automated blinds down at night and the reading spotlight on, you’ve got the perfect backdrop for a shadow puppet show!

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.

Baan Kilee

Baan Kilee

Thailand  »  Koh Samui  »  Lipa Noi

It is rare to find villas like Baan Kilee. We visited as a group of families and it worked an absolute treat. The kids had a ball and fell into bed exhausted each evening giving the parents time to enjoy their vacation. The staff could not have been more welcoming and accommodating; they continually smiled despite being run ragged all hours of the day by demanding parents and children. In true Thai style the kids were taken under their wing from day 1. The food was exquisite and cold drinks, teas, coffees and snacks just kept on appearing. The villa itself is well designed - practical, functional and eminently flexible. All the bedrooms are generous and have good bathrooms. We have no problem recommending Baan Kilee - it is one of the best villas we have seen.

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.
