10 Luxury Beach Villas for Your Vacation
Everyone should have the once-in-a-lifetime experience of staying in a luxury villa. Filled with amenities, these rentals generally have private swimming pools (some even have infinity pools), spectacular dining areas with sea views, private chefs, and helpful concierges — to name a few of their many perks.
To get you started, we've put together a list of the top beach spots and some of their best beachfront villas to book ASAP.
The Amanyara Villas, Turks and Caicos
The Caribbean's stunning blue waters and white sand beaches make Turks and Caicos a must-visit spot for private villas. Like nearby Barbados, St. Barts, the Cayman Islands, Belize, and St. Martin, these Caribbean islands offer everything you’d ever want from a vacation.
Located in one of the Caribbean sea’s most opulent resorts you can find the Amanyara Villas along the coast with entirely private beaches and breathtaking beach houses.
This is the place to go if you want to lounge in your infinity pool while marveling over the breathtaking vistas. If you decide to leave your luxury villa rental after check-in, make your way to Grace Beach. You can shop in the boutiques or dine al fresco at the oceanfront Coco Bistro.
If you're looking for a thrilling experience, diving is an obvious choice. This location, on the other hand, is ideal for water sports like paddle boarding and kayaking. The calm bay waters make for an ideal learning setting for all you newbies! You’ll also have no problem finding stunning golf courses, relaxing hot tubs, and plenty of en-suite activities to enjoy in your living space.
Villa Mana, Bali
Many people have the impression that Bali has gorgeous white sandy beaches with palm trees and blue waters. As beautiful as this destination is, the majority of Bali's beautiful beaches have greyish-black sand. This is thanks to the presence of active volcanoes in the region.
While it may be lacking in white sand, Bali more than makes up for it with excellent surfing, swimming, and people-watching. In addition, this beach getaway offers a variety of island-style excursions as well as beautiful jungles.
Stay at Villa Mana, a magnificent jungle getaway just a short drive from the beach. It's set amongst lush green rice fields and features a magnificent infinity pool.
For some excitement head to the Ubud Monkey Forest. Just keep an eye on your valuables since these monkeys aren't shy!
Le Sirenuse, Amalfi Coast
Picturesque views of cliffsides studded with brilliant flashes of color are synonymous with the Amalfi Coast. While visiting its villages and boutique stores is essential, living in a luxury beach vacation rental offers a unique perspective on the coastline. It’s often recommended by villa specialists to those booking a luxury vacation.
The gorgeous beach of Duoglio is one of the many hidden beaches in this destination. Prepare to climb nearly 400 steps if you are not traveling by boat. Don't worry, you'll be rewarded with some of the Amalfi Coast's clear waters.
Still looking for something to do in the water? The Blue Grotto is a must-see underwater attraction! While expensive, staying at Le Sirenuse is without a doubt something you should consider when you’re in town — it's one of the most gorgeous resorts on the planet.
Various, British Virgin Islands
Another locale nestled in the breathtaking scenery of the Caribbean, you'll want to relax and enjoy the British Virgin Islands' laid-back atmosphere when you're not traveling between these stunning islands.
Many of the luxury beach homes in this area are only a few feet from the sand. Unlike our previous recommendations, it’s best to book a villa in the BVI through a site like Airbnb or VRBO. There are plenty of gorgeous options to choose from, and this will allow you to truly cater your villa to your vacation needs.
You can spend days alternating between relaxing in your private pool and snorkeling in the clear blue sea. After that, make a point of visiting Virgin Gorda's Baths. The shore is littered with massive volcanic stones. Secret ponds and caves lurk within these stones, just waiting to be discovered.
For extra beach fun, head to White Bay on Jost Van Dyke's smallest island, Jost Van Dyke. Some of the most beautiful swimming locations in the area are here, as well as some of the best snorkeling.
Fiji Marriott Resort Momi Bay, Fiji
Fiji’s luxurious beach villas take things to another level. Here, you'll be floating above the blue waves, rather than on the white sand beaches! When you can see those crystal pure seas via glass floors in your bedroom, it's a real luxury experience.
Fiji is made up of 333 islands, which is surprising. The majority of these are uninhabited, providing perfect seclusion. Regardless, you'll be surrounded by coral, a smattering of palm trees, and the occasional dolphin sighting!
Spend the afternoon exploring the limestone caves at Sawa-i-Lau if you're looking for a rush of excitement. The only way to get to the inner cave is to swim underwater, but the splendor within is well worth the effort!
Fiji Marriott Resort Momi Bay has duplex villas right on the sand, making it our go-to choice for luxury lodgings. If you’re looking for something a little less pricey, Daku Resort offers private pools and ocean views in their traditional bure huts.
Villa Bellissima, Cabo
While Mexico is a hot spot for plenty of spring-break vacationers, that shouldn’t stop you from looking for a private hideaway among all of the beaches. Cabo is a fun spot with more affordable prices than some of our other recommendations, partially because it's much easier to get to from the States.
Throughout the rugged scenery, you’ll find luxury beach villas nestled into the cliffs. With unparalleled views and private pools that overlook the ocean, you’re in for an amazing experience.
Villa Bellissima is a great place to stay with plenty of activities for everyone in your group. Do some sightseeing and visit El Arco, one of Cabo’s most famous attractions. If you pick the right time, you might get to experience the beach walkway that reveals itself underneath the arch because of tide changes every couple of years.
Gili Lankanfushi, the Maldives
Another well-known place with overwater bungalows is the Maldives. With scenery that appears to be an airbrushed painting, the Maldives is perhaps the world's most gorgeous beach destination.
Stay at Gili Lankanfushi and fall in love with their Private Reserve Villa, which includes a waterslide that leads directly into the sea. Many visitors come to this site for the amazing diving spots, in addition to the gorgeous bungalows and one-bedroom villas with massive living rooms and breathtaking balconies.. Don’t forget your rashguards!
While the diving is fantastic, there is still so much more to discover. Take a leisurely trip over the lake to see a hundred different shades of blue. Paddle boarding is also possible on the islands because of the calm turquoise waters.
Finally, a luxury beach massage is a must-do on these islands!
The third largest and final must-visit luxury beach villa destination must-visit is Zakynthos. This island off of Greece’s coastline has some of the most breathtaking shoreline drives, towering vistas, and wonderful Greek cuisine to try.
It takes around an hour and a half to drive from coast to coast, which creates a thrilling yet doable experience. Plus, it gives you plenty of time to relax at the beach!
Head to Navagio Beach for a postcard-perfect beach that you must see for yourself. Be prepared to climb some cliffs if you want to get spectacular island views.
A visit to Dafni Beach — which is more secluded — is a must for at least one of the days you’re there. Even though it's a little more difficult to find, its privacy is a huge plus! It's also worth noting that there are more rocks than sand on this beach. This is due to the fact that it is a turtle nest-protected beach with some absolutely adorable vistas!
This is another locale where the best villas and boutique hotels will be found through sites like Airbnb, VRBO, or your travel agent.
Now that you’re inspired by all these destinations, you might want to freshen up your swimwear collection. So, head over to La Blanca, and shop for your new favorite swimwear pieces! Try them on at home without the risk when you enjoy complimentary shipping and returns on all orders over $79.
