There are many reasons why vacationers choose luxury villa holidays over hotels. Additional living space, extra bathrooms and the opportunity to entertain are just some of the deciding factors. We suggest five specific things to look for when booking your next luxury villa holiday to make sure your stay is truly outstanding.
Fortunately, Grand Isle Resort & Spa has it all in spades.
1. LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION
You should never compromise on location. If you want a beach vacation, then choose a villa accordingly. Do not settle for a villa “close” to the beach.
Beautiful beach views are all part of your luxury villa holiday experience, coupled with the sounds of the waves and the sighting of seabirds, turtles and dolphins just yards from your private villa terrace.
Not only is it convenient to step right from your villa onto the sandy beach, but you can also go swimming, snorkeling or kayaking just yards from your own front door. For those with children, choosing a luxury villa right on the beach means you can easily keep an eye on them without having to accompany them onto the beach.
Finally, with your own luxury villa right on the beach, you can avoid the hassle of packing a bag and the expense of finding beachside parking.
At Grand Isle, the luxurious community is just steps from Emerald Bay, a giant horseshoe beach that’s perfect for swimming, snorkeling and long walks.
2. CUSTOM FURNISHINGS AND GOURMET KITCHENS
Comfort and convenience are the watchwords when it comes to defining a luxury villa holiday. You want all the comforts of home when it comes to bedding and furniture.
A fully equipped gourmet kitchen is a must for preparing smoothies, cocktails, snacks and even full meals. A dishwasher and a well-stocked sub-zero refrigerator make life easy for having snacks and drinks on hand.
Grand Isle prides itself on high-quality furnishings. You will have all the conveniences of home and feel perfectly comfortable cooking a full meal for your family or guests.
3. STAFF AVAILABILITY
For a totally relaxing luxury vacation, having maid service to make the beds and clean the bathrooms can be an important extra. Families with children may want to choose a villa that offers optional nannies to entertain and care for youngsters while parents enjoy a well-earned break.
Rather than eating out, consider having your own private chef to create healthy restaurant-quality meals that suit your particular needs. A chef also makes entertaining easy and enjoyable in your luxury vacation villa.
Grand Isle has all of these services available.
4. ON-SITE RESTAURANT, SPA AND AMENITIES
Choose a luxury villa that has plenty of on-site amenities to enhance your stay. Most vacationers want to enjoy a spa experience, massage or beauty treatment without having to travel.
Having an onsite restaurant means you can dine out and enjoy a bottle of wine with your meal without having to worry about driving home. Restaurants often provide a carry-out service if you want to enjoy a chef-prepared meal in front of the TV.
At Grand Isle, amenities include a full spa experience, golf course, infinity pool, workout facility and an excellent restaurant and bar.
5. FAMILIES AND ACTIVITIES
Those with children may also want to consider a luxury villa holiday where there are organized activities or other children to play with. A community pool is a great place for both children and adults to meet up with other guests.
An onsite fitness center may be a plus for those who want to keep fit. If watersports are an important part of your stay, choose a luxury private villa in a complex which provides a range of watersports equipment. They may also offer fishing charters and boat trips if you do not want to hire your own boat.
Because Grand Isle’s villas are so large and fully equipped, they are perfect for large families. The property is family friendly, and a wide variety of water sports and activities are offered to guests and owners.
