Here’s to the Hen! Villa Roxo is the Perfect Phuket Escape for all Brides-to-Be

3 October, 2016

Plan your beachy bachelorette with The Luxe Nomad!

 

Whether you call it a hen ‘do or a bachelorette party, every bride-to-be deserves a weekend away with her besties before her walk down the aisle! Being so close to so many amazing destinations, I knew I wanted to take advantage of this and plan an amazing bachelorette weekend with my girlfriends to relax, unwind and soak up some sun before heading back to the States for my big day.

The Luxe Nomad was so accommodating (as usual!) in helping to select a villa that would fit all my needs and we decided on Villa Roxo, a stunning sun-lit holiday escape located in Phuket.

The Villa

Villa Roxo is one of seven Sava luxury villas located at the Southern end of Natai Beach on the island of Phuket. The first word that came to mind when entering the villa was “breathtaking”! This expansive four-bedroom holiday home is set out over three levels with the main floor featuring an 18 meter outdoor infinity pool that immediately caught my eye.

The middle level was perfect for relaxing and taking in the stunning sunsets with a large open area and floor to ceiling windows that would slide open so you could smell that great salty beach air! The dining area was a great focal point of the villa and naturally we spent a lot of time there eating and drinking.

Upstairs, we found four large bedrooms, two of which had incredible sea views. The Master Bedroom had my name all over it with its large windows that let in so much light and a bathroom that was bigger than my current apartment (no joke!). There is nothing like waking up to the sound of waves, opening your blinds and stepping out on to a balcony overlooking the water (pure heaven!).

The Service

If the modern, beachy décor and stunning views weren’t enough, the staff at Roxo made our stay that much more enjoyable! There was a full-time villa manager who was there to help us with any request (he even helped us blow up our giant swan & unicorn floats!). Along with the villa manager, there was an in-house Thai chef, two housekeepers and a concierge. We chose to play it low key and stay at the villa for the majority of our time, but the concierge could help arrange transport and activities in many of the major areas of Phuket.

One of my favourite parts about this trip (aside from the numerous bottles of Whispering Angel Rosé that we consumed) were the daily massages! After a long, hard day of sunbathing and trying to gracefully climb on top of our unicorn float without spilling our drinks, a 90-minute massage in the comfort of our own bedrooms was essential!

The Food

I could seriously write an entire post just about the food at the villa and how good it was! Thai food has quickly turned into one of my favourite cuisines and I crave it on a regular basis. To say I was excited for this trip for the food alone is an understatement!

Our chef was simply amazing and because of this, we decided to eat every meal over the weekend at the villa. Upon arrival we were greeted with traditional Thai treats like chicken and beef satay, spring rolls and prawn crackers. For dinner both nights, she really pulled out all the stops! From pad thai, green curry, grilled chicken in banana leaves and freshly caught fish, to my absolute favourite, mango sticky rice! The best part about having all our meals at the villa with our private chef was the fact that we could sit around the table in our plush bathrobes, no makeup and eat until our hearts’ content.

The Verdict

Looking back, my bachelorette weekend planned through The Luxe Nomad at Villa Roxo was everything I wanted! For any brides-to-be out there, or any ladies in need of a girls weekend away from the hustle and bustle of Hong Kong, I highly recommend Villa Roxo!
