Eden Roc offers travelers three very distinct experiences. We will explain each one and start with the villa that we were booked into:
Luxury One Bedroom Pool Villa – in the Boutique Pool Suites category
With over 1,000 square feet of interior bliss, the Luxury Pool Villas are a perfect escape for couples looking for a very secluded, dare I say, socially distant experience. The villas are very private, ours facing away from the property, making it very easy for us to run around in peace (aka, Max in a pareo). Outside our little pink villa was a golf cart parking spot waiting for us. I believe nightly they typically plug in your cart for you, however, ours was never plugged in but lasted the weekend.
Inside the villa is an expansive living room, with a dining table for two, desk and full minibar. Beautiful glassware and high-quality minibar items is reminiscent of the good old days of hospitality, when minibars were a luxurious amenity that is so often an afterthought these days.
The bedroom is also a large size, complete with a four poster king bed with sheets that were to die for. The bathroom is a real winner in this suite, with a full deep soaking tub, indoor AND outdoor shower and double vanity. The walk-in his and hers closet was exceptional as well, giving us ample room to unload our 2 months-worth of luggage.
Large toiletries from Agua di Parma completed the high-end look, and yes, I did steal them. Even the separate toilet room was luxurious, complete with a bidet and a floor to ceiling window that faced our private garden.
The patio was stunning- with a large private pool, two chaise lounges and an outdoor living room set. The pool was warm and offered a wonderful reprieve from the humid air. There is something very exciting about skinny dipping in your private pool, knowing no one can see you :).
Overall, the luxury pool villa was a great option for us. Keep in mind, however, it is a golf cart ride away from the beach, so if you are planning to spend all your time at the beach, the beach suites may be a better option for you. Honeymooning couples or those looking for some privacy and the ability to blast music from the integrated speakers in the suite will find this to be the perfect option for them.
