With its intriguing blend of Far Eastern style and a wealth of luxurious touches, Villa Xian is a fabulous choice for guests of all ages and includes ground floor accommodation and ramps suitable for wheelchair users. Located in the heart of an upmarket residential area of Playa Blanca and boasting a fabulous pool, gym, sauna and hot tub, this property comes very highly recommended.
A masterpiece of creative architecture, Villa Xian packs quite a punch. From the entrance, its sugar-cube exterior belies the light-filled interior with its huge picture windows and clever lighting effects. Everywhere you look you’ll find another fascinating and unexpected detail, with Buddhist statues lit by sparkling chandeliers and state of the art home cinema system competing for attention with soothing tropical fish.
The spacious ground floor living room is bordered by floor to ceiling windows, elegantly dressed to create a cosy ambience for movie viewing, with vast leather sofas inviting you to stretch out and chill. Behind the dividing wall housing an eye-catching fish tank, the dining room is a beautiful space to enjoy delicious home-cooked meals with friends and family, with its highly polished square table, leather seating and sophisticated lighting.
The ultra-modern kitchen is superbly equipped with high quality appliances, gleaming granite worktops and a striking island unit with hob and funnel-style fan. Along with one of the villa’s five splendid bedrooms, the living room and dining room form a U shape around a delightful outdoor seating area, shaded by a timber framed canopy and with both a ramp and steps leading down to the fabulous walled poolside area.
Creative use of space has facilitated a unique private pool with a swan-style fountain, in-pool bench seat and a swimming channel running alongside the house. A gently sloping ramp with handrail allows for easy access to the water while sun lovers will appreciate the lovely teak loungers around the pool.
A brick-built barbecue and sink unit in one corner provides all you need for some simple outdoor cooking – sizzling steaks, flavourful sardines or the catch of the day from the market, washed down with an ice cold beverage. A charming timber and bamboo gazebo houses a large dining table so guests can linger in the shade over a leisurely lunch.
The bedrooms at Villa Xian have been individually styled with thoughtful attention to detail. On the ground floor is an enchanting double with a four-poster bed, a pretty twin bedded room and a third sporting bunk beds that will delight younger guests. Two superb shower rooms, one en suite to the double room, incorporate hydromassage showers and modern vanity units with twin washbasins.
Upstairs, two sumptuous en suite rooms complete the picture, one boasting a four-poster bed and a hydromassage shower, the other with a Jacuzzi bath. Patio doors from each lead out to a huge first floor veranda where a football table, dart board and table tennis table will provide hours of competitive entertainment. There’s also a deluxe hot tub with colour-change lighting for the ultimate indulgence.
Through the master bedroom is yet another surprise element to this outstanding villa: a private gym with a range of cardio and weight training machines, yoga mats and sauna, so there’s no danger of missing out on your training routine.
Last, but certainly not least, the little ones in your group are well catered for with a cute little paddling pool, toadstool fountain and brightly coloured play house accessed through the ground floor room with bunks.
If you’re travelling in a group with a variety of ages, Villa Xian is simply perfect. And if your group is larger than ten, Xian’s sister villa, ‘Buddha’, is just across the road, accommodating a further 12 guests in similarly luxurious comfort, ideal for a celebratory holiday.
