“Fantastic, but not perfect”
Reviewed 31 January 2012

Fantastic place for some time or more doing absolutely nothing. We did just that for two whole weeks and enjoyed it very much.

When we opened the sliding doors we got everything we expected from seeing the website. A big bed, a dressing room with a closet, a fridge, and a very nice half open bathroom down the stairs. All very stylish and chic. But the best part was the front porch and the comfy daybeds on the sand, about 30 metres from the perfect warm water of the sea.

The breakfast that is served every morning isn't great, but the fact that someone brings it up to your porch makes it all good.

There is one thing that's really annoying: the shower. On the website it says that there's hot and cold water. It's not a lie, cause there is hot water sometimes, for a couple of seconds, but it's very annoying that you have to wait 5-10 minutes before it's hot and then it gets cold really quickly again. That being said, after a couple of days we didn;t even mind the shower, because we were so relaxed from the whole White Sands experience.

Judging from the looks we got from passers by, I would say this is the best place in Agonda. Agonda is a nice little village, by the way. Or better: a nice little street, cause it's not more than that. But it has a couple of pretty good restaurants (Simrose especially) and there's a pretty decent bakery that sells real coffee (as opposed to the nescafe that most restaurants serve). Very nice place for a doing-nothing-holiday. And with a couple of small modifications these huts would be even better. A better working shower, a water boiler to make your own coffee and tea and maybe shutters for the windows, cause it does get cold at night and when the wind blows right through, it gets cold. And maybe shutters will also keep out the constant barking of the dogs at night.

Anyway, not perfection, but still extremely fantastic!

We stayed in the beautiful, Balinese styled villa, where the bedroom is on the first floor and the balcony overlooks the beach and the sea.
The bedroom is very large and has a big , comfy bed, a wardrobe, bedside tables and a fan. You go down an open staircase at the back of the bedroom to the ground floor bathroom, which is partially open to the sky. The bathroom is very modern and has a shower with hot water.
There are two friendly, english speaking ladies, who are available during the day to provide breakfast on the balcony, drinks and to clean the rooms. Other meals are best taken at the very pleasant, Agonda White Sands restaurant, about 5 minutes walk up the beach, which is in the same ownership.
There is direct access to the beach from the front of the villa. A beautiful place to stay, but quite expensive compared with other, albeit much more basic, properties in this area.
Access to the villa is via an open staicase at the front and the bathroom is reached via an open staircase down from the bedroom. This could be a problem for persons who have difficulty climbing or descending open staircases

Amazing, wow, beautiful, stressless and an absolute perfect match when you are searching for individual holiday trip. We spent 10 days in a chinese villa.
It fits everything, service, food, mother nature, the water (10 meters right over the beach, amazing).
Everyday cleaning and a perfect service gives you an extremly comfort.
Special thanks to Shaan, Rupesh, Carol, Archana and the rest of staff, you guys do a really good job.

There are 3 villas and we stayed in the Chinese style villa for 10 days. The villas are designed for 2 people. Although we have a small son, this was no problem as the bed was huge and the Chinese villa is built at ground level so it is safe for our son to climb and fall. There are only 3 villas on this piece of land and there is no public restaurant which means it is private and peaceful. That said they have a small kitchen located at the back of the land where the staff cook your meals and bring them to your villa. There is a well stocked fridge in the villa (beers, wine, etc) so the only reason to leave is for a dip in the sea.

The staff are so friendly I felt emotional when I left. They truly made it extra special. If you need to completely relax and you are not on a travelers budget, then Agonda Villas is where it is at.

The staff are so friendly and many people actually feel sad when they leave. If these compliments carry on I may set up a facebook appreciation page for the staff.
