Looking to hole up in your own beachfront retreat? This luxury villa on the Greek island of Zakynthos is perched right on the shore, with its own private area of the beach, so you won’t have to race anyone to the best sunbed.
The Royal Spa villa also has a private pool, with hydrotherapy device so you can simply relax in the warm water. The lush, tropical gardens that surround the pools and the villa itself create a feeling of peace and seclusion. Imposingly high walls and gates inspired by the Venetians guarantee ultimate privacy. However, being located on the exclusive award winning Porto Zante estate means that guests of the villa can also enjoy all the exceptional services and facilities you would have in a luxury hotel, from restaurants on site to children’s entertainment and daily maid service.
Inside, the property is decorated in a simple but sophisticated style, using elegant pieces by Armani Casa. The spacious living room, with views out to the ocean, is the perfect place to unwind with friends, reading the papers on a sunny afternoon or enjoying an evening drink while the gentle sea breeze blows in through the open doors. And a contemporary dining room provides the ideal backdrop for group meals, whether whipped up by a hired chef or delivered straight from the restaurant. The three bedrooms are oh-so relaxing, with their own dressing rooms and stunning marble-lined bathrooms that have separate hydro-jet showers: the perfect place to drift off to sleep, lulled by the sound of waves.
And when you want to relax even more there is the waterfront spa, located right above the water with views across the Ionian sea. With over 20 signature therapies to be tried whilst in the spa’s luxurious and relaxing environment, you may end up booking in every day.
