The best bits 

Great bedrooms seal the deal when it comes to villas you’ll never want to leave. The standout features you’ll remember Villa Florimar for, appearance-wise, are its sleek black stone floors and wall. This really makes an impression when you see the Romanesque sunken baths in the two pavilion rooms on the ground floor.

Moving upstairs the villa’s main pavilion, you’ll find two large master bedrooms, the Sunrise and Sunset Suites. These are named for obvious reasons: Sunrise overlooks a Hindu temple to the east, and Sunset gets enviable sunset views on the ocean. There is, of course, a fifth ensuite bedroom, which has access to its own private garden.

And speaking of the kitchen, you get your own private chef (groceries and handling fees are charged separately). More importantly, Villa Florimar is perfect for families with children, as baby cots, highchairs and a pool safety fence are available upon request, as are babysitting services.
