Close to the main beaches of Koh Samui, Villa Moon Shadow has a stunning 180 degree sea view and an infinity pool in a fully-serviced four-bedroom private luxury property. Designed by an award-winning architect, it is one of the newest villas to open at Koh Samui. Apart from the bedrooms, the villa comprises an elevated dining room, cozy poolside ground floor lounge and the master bedroom is a large, detached independent pavilion located in the right area of the Villa. Imagine the privacy both of you will be getting! But you can bring friends and family if you like, of course. The Villa is stylish and looks just as good as the one Beyonce hung out at over the Superbowl weekend in LA. Don’t believe me? Go have a look here.

2. Sanglung Villa, Bali

Just slightly less than two years old, Sanglung Villa is surrounded by nature with stunning, uninterrupted ocean views in North Bali. The Villa has 2 large bedrooms, with an open-concept living area. Upstairs, there is a lovely open space with timber floors, and more incredible views. The quiet and tranquil neighbourhood this part of Bali has not yet been commercialised, so just a short drive away, you can discover waterfalls, temples and even dolphin watching. Ubud is about a half hour’s drive away, so it’s still near activity should you want to shop and visit the streets. Otherwise, you can just disconnect and soak in the rustic atmosphere and view, and let the dedicated Villa staff do all the grocery shopping and cooking for you. I wouldn’t want to leave the Villa. I mean, look at that view.

3. Bamboo Eco Cottage, Bali

Okay, so you want to be right in the middle of Ubud, but still enjoy nature and privacy. Here’s a really cool rental for you. This is a woven house made almost entirely of bamboo. It is open air and as close to living in nature as you get. Hidden, but merely minutes away from the hustle and bustle of Ubud, this eco cottage takes you back in time. In the day, you get to meet rice farmers and local women blessing the rice. At night you get to see fireflies and hear the rushing river. You can arrange for a traditional balinese village style dinner served with candlelight a dining experience under the stars, with food prepared fresh from wild harvested or ingredients from the organic garden, and even milk from a friendly goat! If you’re okay sleeping in a natural setting, open to the cool night air, with no air-conditioning save for the constant cool breeze, this will be an experience you’ll never forget. Do it.

If you’ve never been to Lombok, now’s a good time, especially with such a gorgeously furnished villa like this. Located in the north part of the island of Gili Trawangan right in front of the best snorkeling spot, so you can just swim from the beach and snorkel with turtles and many colourful fish. There is also a private beach especially for your privacy from where you can enjoy Lombok’s beautiful sunset every day. It’s a quiet and peaceful area away from the touristy spots on Gili T, but still easily accessible to the many restaurants and bars on the island. It’s a paradise for couples or for a group of friends, and there are four bedrooms and four bathrooms, so no fighting. Tempt yourself here.
