Many people start thinking of booking a villa holiday or villa style holiday when they have a group of people travelling, whether it be a group of friends or extended family. However, there are many options for smaller groups and even couples when it comes to villas. Apartments are also a great option as they offer greater space than standard hotel rooms and ensures guests are accommodated all in one unit so you can spend plenty of time with each other and enjoy the living and dining areas with your loved ones. You can easily search for properties on our site by the number of bedrooms required, so its easy to find smaller properties if needed!
Only pay for the rooms you use!
There are many properties, especially in quieter seasons, that structure their rates on the number of bedrooms required. Some even offer one bedroom rates such as Villa D’arcy in St Lucia – . The true value of these properties is that you will still have full use of the entire property and its amenities, but will only pay for the use of the bedrooms you need. For groups requiring a few more bedrooms, even larger villas offer flexible bedroom rates, such as the 7 bedroom Jamoon Sandy Lane Barbados – which can be booked from three bedrooms upwards.
Smaller Villas Not all villas are built on a grand scale. Many owners deliberately choose to build smaller homes to offer a more intimate and cosy experience, perfect for couples or smaller families. Perhaps you are travelling with a friend and both want your own rooms? We feature a range of smaller villas, but do not be fooled, these properties still pack a big punch in terms of space, amenities (often with their own pools) and location! Check out La Bagatelle in St Lucia, with two bedrooms, this property offers amazing views and ample living & dining space. For a beachfront contemporary option, look at Beach Kandi in Turks & Caicos and Villa La Lune which is right on the beach in Barbados , or Villa Kamini, with its breathtaking views and huge pool in Greece
Combine a smaller Villa with a resort
If you are looking for a more resort style experience, why not opt for a resort that offers villa style accommodations, such as Amanpuri Villas in Phuket, which blends beautiful intimate luxurious villas with a fantastic array of resort facilities such as bars, restaurants, spa and watersports. There are many of these style properties to be found in destinations such as the Maldives , Seychelles, Thailand and Mauritius. The Caribbean also features some resorts with private villas such as this one at the Calabash Resort in Grenada.
Luxury Apartments and Townhouses A growing trend for travellers is to opt for an apartment over hotels as they tend to offer great value in excellent locations, such as this one in Dubai – which is right by the famous Burj Khalifa! Or the Borsato in the heart of Venice – Enjoy luxurious surroundings with your own space and freedom to enjoy the nearby attractions. Many of our destinations have great apartment options. Some will come with the benefit of shared facilities such as a pool and gym, and private parking with secured access, such as St Peters Bay Barbados . Townhouses also offer larger accommodations, often with their own pools, and some on golf courses, such as this one in Royal Westmoreland Barbados.
Enjoy both Space and Privacy
One of the two major benefits of opting to stay in a villa is that you enjoy the space and privacy not often found when you choose a resort or hotel. Couples on a honeymoon or romantic getaway may be specifically seeking privacy to enjoy each others’ company without other guests being around. You may also be looking for somewhere different or romantic, such as this lovely property in Tuscany . Similarly, friends may want to get together for much needed time away to catch up and enjoy valuable time together.
