Back inside there’s a fully-equipped kitchen behind the bar, not that you really need it, as this villa comes with a cook who can prepare your food for you.
Best of all, this villa is set up to sleep four guests across its two bedrooms. Each features a king bed and air-conditioning, ensuring your comfort. It’s therefore great for couples or families, especially as there are a load of family features like a crib and a highchair.
