Families at Orchard House
The family friendly advantages of a villa holiday are many, including access to your own private facilities and the freedom to use them whenever you want. Knowing that the kids can run around happily, independently and safely, without you having to worry about other guests, is a real plus – and one that means parents are certain to have a more relaxed holiday too.
There is no doubting that children are going to enjoy The Orchard House as much as their parents: with a large garden to run around in, a 13-metre swimming pool, table tennis table, abundance of toys, facilities here are outstanding.
The team of friendly staff at The Orchard House make children feel as welcome as adults too, and having these willing helpers on hand gives guests plenty of flexibility and freedom to do their own exploring beyond the villa grounds (full-time babysitting incurs a small extra cost).
Although the equipped kitchen allows meals for fussy eaters or babies to be prepared with ease, staff will happily to do this for you – just talk through your requirements and meal schedules with the villa manager or chef and they will take care of the rest. The chef can customize all meals to suit children’s taste buds. Pancakes by the pool for breakfast? Fish fingers after a game of football? No problem.
Neither do you need to worry about packing all that cumbersome kids’ equipment for your stay. There is a good stock of children’s items already at the villa, but should you need anything else, equipment can be hired on your behalf.
And when the excitement of exploring the villa starts to wear off, check out our Things to do page; there’s plenty in the area to keep kids of all ages amused throughout the holiday.
Feel like a body scrub or massage? Just ask our staff to bring the spa to you! We can recommend deluxe treatments carried out in the privacy of your villa by fully trained therapists from a reputable local spa (extra charges will apply). Here’s a sample of what’s on the menu:
A full body scrub will exfoliate and hydrate your skin leaving it soft and smooth. A rejuvenating scrub combines an abrasive material such as salt, coffee, rice bran or pecan hulls with essential oils to remove any impurities and make your skin glow.
Foot reflexology is a natural healing art based on the principle that there are reflexes in the feet which correspond to every part of the body. Through application of pressure on these reflexes tension is relieved and circulation improved leaving you feeling balanced.
Our hands and feet work hard for us every day but rarely get the attention they deserve. Treat them to a manicure or pedicure, which usually comes with the added bonus of a quick hand or foot massage.
Spoil yourself and release built up tension with a traditional Balinese massage by the pool or in the privacy of your room. Using a combination of gentle stretches, acupressure and aromatherapy oils to stimulate the flow of blood, oxygen and energy around your body, you will feel totally relaxed in no time.
