Villa Paloma

Villa Paloma

Indonesia » Bali » Canggu area » Canggu

While the architectural design is attractive, it’s the décor and furnishings that really set Villa Paloma apart. The owners spend a lot of time here (when not rented) and it shows; not only does Paloma look fabulous, it is also a highly liveable and very comfortable space. The wonderful collection of antiques has been hand picked by the owners and reflects both a passion for the culture and artwork of Indonesia, and impeccable personal taste. Villa Paloma manages to be sumptuous without being over the top and feels more like a real home (albeit a supremely luxurious one) than a rental villa.

The true beauty is in the details, the intricate floral designs carved into the antique daybeds and cabinets, the framed tribal neck pieces, the decorative platters on the coffee tables, the frangipani scattered around the boulders by the pool. Thoughtful modern trimmings include crimson batik-edging on the pool towels, and thick soft bath towels stacked in attractive layers of red and white. Separate guest quarters make this villa good value, and ideal for groups or families who want a little privacy. The poolside lounge and casual all-weather dining setting framed by the picturesque garden and a big blue sky is perfect for alfresco meals.

Panorama Summit

Panorama Summit

Thailand » Koh Samui » Choeng Mon

A line from The Carpenters’ song: “I’m on the top of the world, looking down on creation” pops into my mind as I lie on a sun lounger by the pool at Panorama Summit. Yet although we’re almost in the clouds, it’s only a short (but admittedly steep) drive to the village and pristine beach below. Nothing obscures the view here – even the hedges of white bougainvillea are perfectly trimmed to knee-height so you look over the pretty blossoms, past the coconut plantations, to the glistening temples and beyond to the sailboats in the bay.

And the view doesn’t fade with the sunset. At night you can see the village lights, a green glow from the squid fishing boats, fireworks from the beach resorts and, if you’re as lucky as we were, spectacular flashes of ‘dry lightning’. One of our favourite places to enjoy the view was from the front edge of the infinity pool, perhaps not ideal for those who suffer from vertigo though.

When we felt the need to pay for our over-indulgence at one of the many excellent local seafood restaurants, a friendly game of tennis (racket and ball hire available at the office) at the estate’s shared court, or a walk down to the beach – and back – did the trick.

We enjoyed delicious continental breakfasts prepared by the resident housekeeper, but if you want a cooked breakfast (or a private chef to prepare any other meal), this can easily be arranged for a reasonable fee plus provisions charged at cost plus 15%. Khun Pee, the villa manager, will gladly help you arrange a chef and can take care of many other concierge services too, be it an in-house massage or a boat trip to one of Samui’s outlying islands.

Villa Pemutih

Villa Pemutih

Indonesia » Bali » Jimbaran - Bukit » The Bukit

It is easy to become a little blasé when it is your job to stay in paradise holiday homes and report back on the findings, but walking into the gardens of Villa Pemutih and seeing that breathtaking view was a rapturous moment, and we knew that the next 24 hours was going to be blissful.

And so it was straight to the pool and the sunloungers on the cliff’s edge with a cold drink, a good book and some sunscreen. A cleverly placed tree provides the shade, while the birds, the cicadas and the ocean provide the music. The sweet Balinese staff bought us cold drinks as the afternoon wore on, and we watched the sunset from the cliff side balé. In the evening, a delicious Balinese feast was cooked for us by the talented kitchen team. We then retired to the super-comfy studio room to blast ourselves senseless with a couple of movies on the villa’s explosive home theatre system.

When the tide is low, do make your way down the cliff to the exposed reef for a bit of beachcombing among the rock pools. The water is calm and none too deep making it a fun, and safe, option for a paddle in the sea. Kids will also love the size of the villa grounds, where they can run around to their hearts’ content, and they’ll enjoy watching the birds in the aviaries. There are numerous species of trees in the garden, including flamboyant, frangipani, coral tree, custard apple, orange flowering saraca trees, acacia, cactus, mango, teak and yellow coconut.

Villa Pra-Nang

Villa Pra-Nang

Thailand » Phuket » Patong

With its spectacular views and spacious though intimate atmosphere we found Pra-Nang to be a very relaxing villa, ideal for families, groups of friends and couples who wish to be close to the action of Patong Bay but not right in the thick of it. The lack of garden however (the villa has only a stepped concrete terrace brimming with colourful potted plants) makes it less suitable for energetic younger children or toddlers who would need a lot of supervision. The bedrooms are all similar in décor, comfort and size which will save any squabbling about who sleeps where. Benefitting from the villa’s broad position on the headland, each room has been built on the same level to take advantage of the panoramic views. We felt that this also makes the villa more sociable as all rooms opens onto the wide pool terrace. The swimming pool is not so big, however there is a separate elevated jacuzzi pool that makes up for it. The lounge offers a comfortable place to appreciate the views, or a cosy atmosphere for watching a movie. We appreciated the gym’s private location on the ground floor, especially as kids noisily playing pool or table tennis are less likely to be a disturbance. The villa has WiFi internet access and a computer with printer/scanner/fax.

The cook prepares simple meals according to a menu (predominantly Thai food except for a couple of sandwich options) however BBQs, western meals and other preferences (special diets) can be catered for on request. We thought that the complimentary case of Singha Beer (and soft drinks) on arrival was a nice touch. While the villa staff speak only basic English, the manager is happy to assist with everything from travel arrangements (complimentary airport transfers) to restaurant reservations.

Pure Villa

Pure Villa

Indonesia » Bali » Canggu area » Canggu

We felt like royalty staying at Pure Villa. The staff were exceptional, not only in taking care of our every whim but also in creating moods to suit the moment. The sheer white elegance of the villa became a canvas for mood lighting at night; tall silver candle holders placed by the staff along the length of the veranda added a warm glow to the evening and lights in the pool turned the water fluorescent with a rainbow of colors. A Bose speaker system installed at every corner of the property meant yoga on the lawn (mats provided), walks around the estate, massages and swimming were all enjoyed with a soundtrack to suit, and the villa iPod was loaded with all the genres we could ask for. With little light pollution, the night sky was amazing, and from the master bedroom we could watch the stars and the sunrise from the comfort of our bed; hello luxury!    

With the in-house chef having exceptional skills in the preparation of Indonesian and Western food, we didn’t look much further than the villa for our meals; and all at only the cost of the shopping plus a 20% service charge. When we did venture out to discover the local sights, having two cars and two drivers on hand (8 hours per day inclusive of cost, petrol extra), and who knew the area so well, made things very easy.
