There is nothing quite like relaxing in the privacy of your own villa, taking a dip in your own pool reserved exclusively for you, or dining on your private terrace with just your family and friends.
A hotel, on the other hand, can offer a wide range of services and facilities such as restaurants, bars, spas and kid’s clubs that you don’t want to miss out on.
But what if you want both? If you want your own, private luxury villa but with the facilities and services of a top hotel on your doorstep, then one of our stunning hotel villas could be the perfect solution.
Enjoy access to a hotel concierge service, spa and fun facilities for kids without compromising the serenity of your own private base.
One of the biggest advantages of staying in a 5 star hotel villa is enjoying access to the hotel’s restaurants and bars on your doorstep. If you prefer to dine in private, call room service and have gourmet creations delivered straight to your very own dining table in your villa or enjoy the services of your very own chef. It really is the best of both worlds.
We have compiled a selection of beautiful hotel villas, each set within or near the grounds of luxury hotels with fantastic facilities.
Here are a few of our favourites to wet your appetite…

Lounge by the pool in the privacy of your own villa or enjoy one of the shared pools or maybe catch the shuttle down to one of the hotel’s two exclusive beaches. The spa is another option but if you’re feeling energetic, drop the children off at the kid’s club and play some golf or tennis. Those looking to gain a new skill on the water might want to hire some paddleboards.
With 6 restaurants within the hotel, every guest at Borgo Egnazia is spoilt for choice when it comes to meal times. If you are looking for a quiet night in the privacy of your own villa you can experiment with Italian cooking yourself, order room service or the hotel can even organise your own ‘massaie’ to come in and cook up an authentic Italian culinary experience.
Sleeps: 6 in 3 rooms

Feast on Michelin-starred cuisine at the Restaurant Le Saint-Martin or sample on Mediterranean dishes and authentic pizzas cooked in a wood-fired oven at the less formal L’Oliveraie.
