For the first time ever, the best of Asia's luxury villa accommodation has been brought together under one roof, so to speak. Flip through the pages of The Asia Villa Guide and be transported from heritage properties in Sri Lanka to billionaire’s pads in Phuket; spa retreats in Bali, to beach hang-outs in Lombok. There is something for just about everyone here.
Laid out by country and destination, each of the 230 villas in The Asia Villa Guide is in a collection and has been given a rating to help you compare. On each page, the nuts and bolts of the villas facilities, staff and rooms are embellished with photographs and an independent portrait penned by one of our team of experienced travel writers.
Supported by Private Homes & Villas' comprehensive online villa reviews and experienced customer service team, our aim is to tell it as we see it, so when you arrive for your dream villa holiday, you get exactly what you are expecting.
In the beginning was the word, and the word was Hotel. Then it changed to Five-star Hotel. Then Boutique Hotel. And then, with a leap that can be described as quantum it metamorphosed into Villa. Holidaying in private villas is starting to catch on in Asia.
For the first time ever, the Asia Villa Guide brings the best of what's on offer under one roof. Flip through the pages here and you're transported from heritage properties in Sri Lanka to billionaire's pads in Phuket; spa retreats beckon in Bali, and beach hang-outs in Lombok.
To embrace that well-worn cliché – there is something for just about everyone here. And we have inspected them all!

For villa owners
Private Homes & Villas was born out of frustration and two very grim holidays. I personally have found it extremely difficult to find decent and impartial information on villas to rent. As a result it has gone into ‘the too difficult tray’ and I have stayed in a hotel instead. Now in the absence of anything else we decided to do something about it.
Our firm belief is that the best recommendations come from people who have been there – tried the beds, sampled the food and been served by the staff. We at Private Homes & Villas do just that. Every villa on our website has been inspected by one of our staff, typically including an overnight stay (tough life I know!). The staff are seasoned villa experts having seen more villas than you or I could stay in for a lifetime.
