Our favourite rooms
Bedrooms with private balconies, voile-draped four-poster beds or child-friendly twin beds, marble bathrooms, a private turfed garden with a pool and Jacuzzi – that’s what you get when you book a Superior Villa. Each Superior sleeps up to six in a double, twin and the living room, but if there are more than four of you, opt for Zeus or Hestia for a third double bedroom and ensuite, rather than sofabeds. All Paradise Island Villas are family-friendly; go for Executive Villas and upward grades, for the joy of two bedrooms (and three bathrooms). Zeus (Superior), Poseidon (Paradise) and Aphrodite (Executive) have the best views.
There are two outdoor pools, surrounded by cushioned sunloungers – one of which is beside the Pool Lounge. Your children are welcome to swim whenever the pool is open, but bear in mind there’s no lifeguard on site.
A selection of spa and beauty treatments, including massages and body scrubs, are available by appointment at your villa. The gym at Paradise Island Villas has a treadmill, bike, weights machines and free weights.
Stair gates are among the toddler-friendly kit provided, but pack (Continental) socket covers for added peace of mind.
Around 24 hours’ notice should be enough to secure a babysitter, arrange an in-room spa treatment or organise tennis lessons.
Lightweight pets (under 5kg only) are allowed free of charge.
