We spent in Villa three days and we were just stunned. The design of the hotel interiors and rooms was unlike anything we have seen. This is perfect place for relaxing in intimate atmosphere. One of the special features of this hotel are multiple chill out zones where you can read a book and enjoy a glass of wine, or... More

I travel all over the world and have stayed in literally thousands of hotels. Villa Zest is one of my new favorites. It really is unbelieveably gorgeous. The owner, Kevin, has spared no expense and his taste is impeccible. It is whimsical, elegant, accessble, and just fantatstic. The staff is amazing. From the moment I entered the magical lobby (really),... More

This was an extraordinary experience - a truly edgy hotel but tasteful. The decor was magnificent and the service very personable. I was amazed at the care given to every detail right down to the choice of soap. A small hotel - almost like a private home. I found the value for money to be exceptionable. The manager was a...

I recently stayed at the Villa Zest for 5 nights and wished that it had been 10 or 15. Villa Zest was not my first choice but I am glad that the other place was fully booked as I had a wonderful time at the Villa Zest. One of the most stylish boutique hotels I've ever stayed at. Stylish and... More

Wonderful boutique hotel which has been amazingly furnished with very tasteful modern decor. The breakfast buffet is excellent and so are the sandwiches. The staff is very friendly and extremely helpful. They gave us excellent recommendations from tourist attractions, restaurants, shopping etc. They even went out of their way to help us plan our engagement. They really made us feel... More

Very nice hotel conveniently located. The high price is fully justified by the quality of decoration, the cosiness of the rooms and, most of all, by the hospitality and the devotion of the owner and the manager to make your stay a perfect one.
