Vai Villas
Reviewed 25 July 2011

Wow - what a fantastic place. Beautiful little villa, set in private garden with unobscurred beach and sea metres away. Lovely decked area in front to relax on. Kitchen well equipped, very comfortable bed - lie in in the morning and listen to the waves crashing on the reef. Peaceful lagoon to swim / snorkel in. Coral not too bad here - patches from the beach where there is none so you can get into the water.

Don't see why you would shell out to stay in one of the resorts when you can have your own slice of paradise for cheaper. Wigmores superstore across the road, excellent pizza place nearby, with DVD hire next to it - perfect! Definitely hire a scooter too.

It would be perfect if you are two couples, but to be honest we only had one of the villas and found it private enough when the other couple arrived.

This property is laid out as two Villas next to each other separated by trellis, we stayed here and my mum and dad stayed in the other villa. It was perfect having all the outside deck space to share between us but I would think if there were strangers in the Villa next door it would not feel very private as the curtains are pretty sheer! and the room is studio style, but spacious.
The interior is very clean and modern and if you are like me and prefer not to see the little lizards indoors then I only saw one tiny one inside the whole time we were there as all the windows have screens on them. Great kitchen facilities and clean and tidy bathroom. Easy access to the lagoon and snorkelling gear is available as is a kayak. There is also a BBQ for guests to use.
Noora was very friendly and access to the property was easy, any issues that arose were looked after straight away. If your hot water runs out then it might be because the gas bottle is empty!!
If you stay here there is really no need to go into town as the Wigmores supermarket is just across the road and there is a nice restaurant called Viama just up the road (need to book though).

This has to be one of the best places to go to get away from the world. What more can you ask for, very private clean villa on one of the best beaches on the island. You get to ly in bed listening to the sea at night, have a gin on the deck and watch the sun go down. The villa has all the facilities that you need.

You cant beat this location! You wake up to a gorgeous view of the water which is steps away. There is a large deck that is over the beach which we spent most of our time on while the kids lived in the water. We didnt need to go any where the place was perfect for our family escape. Nice rooms but its the beach and deck that made this place magical for us. Booked in for the next year!
