Amilla – beach residence 4 bedroom 6

Amilla – beach residence 4 bedroom 6

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!

Amilla – the Amilla estate

Amilla – the Amilla estate

Maldives » Maldives » Maldives

It’s official:  I’m in heaven.  This is the perfect island home, and I don’t ever want to leave!  Flying over coral islands 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 – an ultra-luxe destination with a relaxing island vibe and a bountiful heart-and-soul spirit.  Of the eight villas within this elite gated community, the six-bedroom Amilla Villa Estate was my favourite.

There are simply no words or pictures to do The Amilla Villa Estate justice.  Absolutely everything was beyond-high-expectation perfect – the contemporary Asia-style architecture, the clean lines of the light-filled interiors, the oh-so-perfect pool, the amazing amount of privacy and space.

The moment we arrived we kicked off our shoes and slipped into the island groove: swaying in the hammock, sunbathing on the cool pool loungers, diving into the silken lagoon waters mask-and-snorkel at the ready.  Indoors, we indulged in the many treats that arrived as if by magic throughout the day. (Turns out the villa came with its own magician –Munaadh, our hugely engaging Katheeb (house manager) who enriched our stay immeasurably.)  Munaadh 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 many culinary highlights of our stay.

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

A shout-out to the astonishing array of restaurants at the Amilla Fushi must be made – the amazing culinary experiences and mouthwatering menus were among the many highlights of our trip.  Sunset cocktails followed by a fresh-from-the-sea meal at the over-water Feeling Koi restaurant is an absolute must; I admit to piling on the pounds during my stay.

Celeb-friendly privacy, acres of entertaining space and the fair-share bedrooms make The Amilla Villa Estate perfect for a gathering of friends. There’s also lots to keep kids entertained beyond the beach and pool – including the resort’s extensive recreational facilities and kids club.

It’s easy to lose all sense of time in this paradise.  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 superlative customer service?  A sign at the Empire Beach Club claims “Happiness is not a destination, it’s a way of life.”  What a perfect epithet for our stay!

We kicked off our shoes immediately and kicked into the island groove (even the seaplane pilot was barefoot): swaying in the hammock, slipping into the silken lagoon waters, spying on the resident Maakana (heron) as he strutted along the pure-white sand.  Indoors, we indulged in the many treats that arrived as if by magic throughout the day.  (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 many culinary highlights of our stay.

The sheer size and sensitive layout of The Great Beach Villa Residence makes it well suited for a large gathering of friends.  It’s also very family-friendly, and within the villa there’s masses to keep kids entertained beyond the beach and pools  –   not to mention the resort’s extensive recreational facilities and kids club.

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.

Infinity Blue Phuket

Infinity Blue Phuket

Thailand » Phuket » Natai Beach

On a beach that’s home to some very large villas, Infinity Blue is a more modest Natai escape, but for our family’s holiday requirements – sun, sand, sea and swims – it was the perfect choice. Khun Sao, the full-time housekeeper, greeted us warmly on arrival and we quickly settled in for an afternoon of drifting down to the beach to cool our feet in the sea before retreating for a lazy read on the shaded terrace while watching the kids splash around in the pool. 

As the villa’s name suggests, the views are endlessly blue and mesmerising and we made sure to have all our meals alfresco on the terrace so we wouldn’t miss a minute of the changing colours as the sun dipped towards the horizon. There’s no in-villa chef included but this didn’t hinder us from eating very well during our stay! On our first evening, Khun Sao arranged for delivery of a selection of Thai dishes from a nearby restaurant, and we were pleasantly surprised when she also thoughtfully presented and served the meal, which was delicious. (Especially the tom yam.)

We also enjoyed the chance to get out and explore some of the dining spots in the area. We can recommend the Aleenta resort restaurant and Baba Beach Club – both are set along the beach just a short stroll away from the villa. And we also enjoyed a more rustic lunch at a beachfront place about five kilometres to north called Rabiang Lay, where we sat under thatch roofed huts gorging on tasty soft-shell crab curry. Paradise found! 

Khun Sao is friendly and eager to please, although her English skills are a bit limited. We were able to communicate well enough on our visit, but were reassured to know we could call the villa manager in case we did need more assistance. Overall, Infinity Blue is a fine family escape that’s quietly elegant and comfy – with those priceless views. With its four bedrooms set in two separate pavilions it’s especially well-suited for extended families or a group of friends.

Malaiwana - Villa M

Malaiwana - Villa M

Thailand » Phuket » Naithon Beach

Villa M underwent a million-dollar makeover just before our visit in 2017, and it was sparkling like brand new.  And that’s a five-star down-to-the-tiniest-detail brand new.

The villa is also in an absolutely stunning location, high up on a steep wooded hill, presiding over a 180-degree ocean view.  Coming through the surprisingly modest front door, we were blown away by that view and its reflection in the infinity-edge pool.

When we finally dragged ourselves away for a tour of the villa, we found that every door we opened led to more delights; one superbly designed room after another.  All the rooms feature large modern art canvasses – most in bright colours.  It’s almost as if the villa knows it has to do something pretty spectacular to compete with the view for your attention, and these amazing art pieces are it.

Upstairs, the walls of Villa M are almost entirely of glass, so that indoor luxury and outdoor amazement merge.  But even on the lower floor every room has that same breathtaking view.  It’s really quite delightfully distracting.

After chilled sundowners to accompany the evening’s heavenly spectacle and supper looking out at the green and white lights of the fishing boats, we decided to leave the delights of the entertainment room for another day and just relax in the super-comfortable living room.

Making this all so much more luxurious were the amiable and generous-minded villa manager, her assistant and the chef, who ensured that we enjoyed royal treatment throughout our stay.
