Villa Waimarie

Villa Waimarie

Thailand » Koh Samui » Lipa Noi

Waimarie is one of the most homely villas we have inspected. It’s incredibly well thought out for families, with absolutely loads to do even on a rainy day (heaven forbid). What really struck us as sensible is that all the day-time lounging areas make the most of the beach and views, whilst the bedrooms are set behind in lovely mature gardens which provide more privacy. The bedrooms are so practical for families – connecting rooms, twin with kings, but each still having a huge bathroom. Perhaps the connecting door could be a bit more sound-proofed.
The baths are huge enough to take five or six kids (or two adults) with ease. Use the shower every other day to appease your environmentally-aware conscience. The common areas are excellent – a little well used in places but not in a frustrating way. There are loads of places to curl up in with a good book but also keep an eye on proceedings. Home away from home is a much overused term but we think this is very applicable for Waimarie. Warm, friendly, secure and incredibly homely.

Villa Zelie

Villa Zelie

Indonesia » Bali » Canggu area » Canggu

We are no strangers to beautiful villas, but Villa Zelie is definitely one of our favourites, and we were happy to forget the real world as we immersed ourselves in this enchanted cocoon of sumptuous comfort and superlative service.

In these days of modern minimalism we relished the chance to bask in pure, unabashed old-world glory. Every glance and every turn was greeted with a slice of Indonesian history; from the delicate floral motifs hand-carved on wood, to tribal shell-encrusted neck pieces fastening back drapes, nightstands adorned with feather headdresses and corners filled with stone statues. And it wasn’t just the quality of the antiques, but also their thoughtful placement and display, which made it abundantly clear that the owner has impeccable taste and style.

The use of natural woods and stone accentuated by richly hued textiles in the bedrooms creates warmth and cosiness – despite the generous size of the property, and our bedroom gladak felt like something straight out of a fairy tale. Ensuite bathrooms were wonderfully atmospheric with vanities carved into stone and petrified wood, and pretty courtyard gardens. Fabulous lighting throughout the property added an enchanting allure to evenings, when all was blissfully quiet but for the faint hum of cicadas and the distant sound of the waves,

The pool was absolutely stunning, long enough for swimming lengths, and perfectly situated in the middle of the property to soak up 360-degree panoramas of the ornate buildings framed by elegant travellers palms and a deep blue sky.

Zelie is more than just a villa; it’s an experience – and one that we never wanted to end!

Villa Arika

Villa Arika

Indonesia » Bali » Canggu area » Canggu

For those who love the ocean (like us), there are few experiences that can match staying right on the beach – especially in a spacious and luxurious tropical villa – so Villa Arika definitely ticked all our boxes. The views are quintessential Bali; everything we expected and more – especially from the master bedroom, which has a lovely private deck. With the huge lawns, the rugged coastline in both directions, and the ocean stretching to the horizon, there is a fabulous feeling of space and openness. Landscaping is thoughtful, with rounded garden beds that mimic the curves of the shore and are filled with low shrubs that complement, rather than distract from the ocean views.

We quickly adapted to the rhythms of nature – lounging by the pool, exploring rock pools on the beach exposed at low tide, languishing in the flamboyant sunsets. Evenings had their own gentle allure with the soft glow of candles and hurricane lanterns. Dinners at the wonderful marble dining table were particularly memorable, surrounded by magically lit lily ponds. Pererenan is delightfully sleepy and serene, and most of the time we were really happy just to chill at the villa and relax, but it was great to have a driver on hand  when we managed to tear ourselves away.

Villa Asli

Villa Asli

Indonesia » Bali » Canggu area » Canggu

This is such a stunning villa! We’re suckers for character, so we really did love everything about Villa Asli. Not only do the gorgeous timber joglos exude such delicious charm in all their aging, creaking, antique-filled glory (and provide a rare [for Bali] sense of history), but the gentle natures of the staff also put us superbly at ease. Asli means ‘genuine’ and everything in this villa – from the exquisite collection of antiques to the staff themselves were certainly positive reflectors of this title.  Dressed in their traditional uniform, the staff were always a warm and efficient presence around the house. The chef was most definitely a highlight of the team as he whipped up an excellent range of dishes based upon an extensive menu and also according to our own suggestions. All the meals we had were thoroughly enjoyed, and since all food and drink was charged at cost price (and daily breakfast is included in the rate), we thought it was surprisingly good value and hardly worth eating out, despite the lure of nearby Seminyak.    

We were spoiled by the high level of comfort and the spaciousness of our bedroom, but its terrace was our favourite place of all. We loved the bathrooms too – the Sumatran gladak had a particularly jungle-like bathtub setting, which was enhanced magically by long lanterns night. The lighting throughout the villa is definitely worth a mention as it set off the chocolatey timberwork a treat.

Astika Toyaning

Astika Toyaning

Indonesia » Bali » Canggu area » Canggu

In spite of the ‘high-design’ tendencies that characterise the simplicity and style of Astika Toyaning, we didn’t feel that it’s a look-but-don’t-touch kind of place. To the contrary, it’s very much the kind of space that finds you taking a deep breath and feeling like you’ve landed in the lap of peace and relaxation.  

The dining area, with its gorgeous wooden feasting table, just begs for long lunches followed by satiated snoozes followed by long dinners followed by satiated snoozes… you get the picture.  In fact, the use of wood throughout the villa adds beauty to the simplest of spaces and objects (who knew a bathroom basin could be such an object of lust and envy?) while the effective and dramatic use of red adds a certain modern glamour to the décor. Astika Toyaning’s 1600 square metres of space, give all guests plenty of breathing room, and when you add to this the proximity of water – the river, the pool, the water feature – you’ve got a villa tailor-made for the ultimate in relaxing holidays.

Villa Azzalea

Villa Azzalea

Indonesia » Bali » Jimbaran - Bukit » Jimbaran

The unique interior décor of Villa Azzalea definitely gives it lots of character: we felt as if we’d been transported onto the set of a sultry Moorish movie, or perhaps a Bollywood blockbuster. Despite this exoticism however, the villa still felt very homely and was just the right size for families and small groups looking to be close to Jimbaran Beach. Although it does have three bedrooms, Azzalea is also a romantic hideaway for couples with its evocative dusky colour scheme and tumbling tropical garden – azaleas (after which the villa is named) are exotic signifiers of passion after all. The master bedroom is a huge boudoir set in the main house and since the two twins are set back in a separate building it wouldn’t feel as if you were drowning in space if they weren’t used.

A small staff team looked after the house, and friendly Made made us a lovely tropical breakfast each morning. He struggled a little with his English but since we only made simple requests this wasn’t a problem. Sister-property Villa Balquisse is up the road and this ten-bedroom hotel is the headquarters of all villa management operations so staff will come down to meet you and can easily be called upon if you have any specific requests – they are very helpful. There’s also the Mediterranean Asam Garam restaurant here (a driver can come and pick you up from the villa or deliver dishes to you) and, for a full pampering, the Henna Spa. Both are decorated in Zohra Boukhari’s iconic Moorish–Oriental style. If you’d like your taste buds pampering too, you can arrange for a private chef for just US$20 a day.

Baan Cheep Chang

Baan Cheep Chang

Thailand » Chiang Mai Province » Chiang Mai City

Our stay at Baan Cheep Chang was the perfect antidote to the normal daily stresses of city life. After a warm greeting from the amenable staff, the pace quickly shifted down a gear as we relaxed into the peaceful, green surroundings and slipped into the soothing waters of the delightful pool.

We chose Chiang Mai over Thailand's beach destinations because we wanted to experience the country's culture as well as its natural attractions. This villa was the perfect base to do just that; the architecture and interiors offering a cultural journey in themselves (we couldn't help but make regular stops between rooms to peruse the intricate woodcarvings, statues and paintings and old photos that fill the villa). After two days relaxing poolside and another two exploring the stunning Chiang Mai countryside, coming home to healthy home cooked meals, we left Baan Cheep Chang relaxed, inspired and vowing to return.

Baan Fan Noi

Baan Fan Noi

Thailand » Koh Samui » Chaweng

From the moment we set our bags down at Baan Fan Noi, we felt relaxed and ready to go with the flow – almost letting the villa’s convivial layout dictate what we should do next. From enjoying a swim in the16m pool to feeling tension lift in the jacuzzi and then falling asleep over a book on the comfy daybeds in the courtyard between the kitchen and living room, we were able to completely switch off. Nothing is too much trouble for the villa manager, Khun Muan, who quickly popped into town on his scooter when we needed something, even before we could ask the favour.

The villa’s elevated position meant we enjoyed views of not only the bay between Chaweng and Choeng Mon, but also the tiny island of Koh Matlang in the distance and the airport to the other side. Rather than being a disturbance, we found it fascinating watching the airplanes taking off and landing, with only minor noise disturbance as the villa is well to the side of the flight path.
The bedrooms are exceptionally comfortable, with down bedding, silent air-conditioning and subdued lighting. Leaving the blinds open at night meant we could see the lights twinkling along the coast below and could even enjoy a firework show being staged at Chaweng Beach. It also meant waking early to a beautiful sunrise. If you’d prefer to sleep in, you can of course draw the blinds – the aroma of coffee brewing will wake you up in time for breakfast, so no need to set your alarm. The fresh air made us hungry, so we enjoyed our continental breakfast, including a platter of tropical fruit, as a perfect way to start the day. From the breakfast table, we watched yachts and fishing boats coming and going and the island starting its day, knowing we had nothing much planned, other than another relaxing day at the elegant Baan Fan Noi.
