We recently returned from two phenomenal weeks at La Villa Rouge. We are fairly particular about selecting accommodation for our overseas trips and put a lot of time into researching to make sure we are not disappointed. After a long and arduous search for a villa for our family holiday, I found out about La Villa Rouge through a friend who recommended it.
The pictures on their website made it look fantastic and the real thing did not disappoint. Everything about our stay ran beautifully and for the first time since having children (5 years) my husband and I felt we had a holiday and a rest whilst also being able to enjoy time away with our young children.
The villa is beautiful and has everything you need. The living area is relaxing and spacious and with WiFi throughout my husband and I who both run our own businesses, were able to keep up with developments at home as needed.
The layout of the villa with four bedrooms all with their own ensuite, ensures there is space for even the largest of families and we actually had a friend fly in from Singapore to stay with us as we had plenty of space to accommodate her.
The master bedroom looks out over the pool and has a large walk in robe and ensuite area which has an adjoining room dedicated for onsite massages which can be arranged by the maid. There is also a separate garden villa which is perfect for additional guests if you want to do a joint holiday with another couple.
The maid who services the villa really was the icing on the cake for us. Whilst providing the services you would expect in terms of keeping the villa clean, she made the holiday for myself and my husband. With her can do obliging attitude, she ensured that we could remove ourselves from having to do day to day chores which we would have to do if we rented a serviced apartment, so I was able to forget about washing and shopping for a change. The maid would also help us with the children if needed and provided babysitting in the evening (at an additional but reasonable cost) which meant that my husband and I could go out for dinner. Our girls loved her from the minute they met her so they were just as happy as we were. This was a major plus also as being in the later stages of pregnancy I was able to gain some much needed rest. The maid was also able to arrange for a chef to come and cook meals as well, again for a small charge, so we ate like kings the entire time we were away.
Overall, I cannot recommend La Villa Rouge highly enough. Whilst the villa does not have a view, we did not feel this detracted from our holiday in anyway as we enjoyed having a beautiful villa which allowed us to relax in privacy. The only factor I would point out to parents of young children is that there is no fence around the pool and the bedroom doors open out straight to the pool area. Having said this, with a 4yo and 2yo, we worked around this without difficulty and it will not prevent us from going back.
La Villa Rouge provides all that you need from a family holiday. A beautiful location, located close to the beach, access to other resort facilities nearby if needed eg we went to some of the restaurants at the nearby resorts for a change of scenery (although we actually preferred to eat at the villa). But most importantly if you want a family holiday which as a parent provides you with an opportunity to rest rather than simply packing up your family to do the family routine in another location then La Villa Rouge is a no brainer. We will be giving Queensland family holidays the fllick and look forward to spending many more happy family holidays at La Villa Rouge.
