Just like its sister property across the road, Villa Buddha is an astonishingly luxurious, thoughtfully designed property that includes ground floor accommodation as well as ramps and wheelchair access to the pool. With so many features providing endless entertainment, it’s a particularly fabulous choice of villa for families including several age groups. Read More

Located in a prestigious residential area of Playa Blanca, this extraordinary home has been meticulously planned to create a genuinely inspiring venue for guests seeking fun, relaxation and indulgence.

Ultra-contemporary from the outside, the interior is a beautiful balance of style and comfort. Each and every room contains quirky design features, clever lighting and unexpected luxuries, from the impressively ornate artworks to the life-size Buddha statues, unique four-poster beds to the secret gymnasium.

The extensive ground floor is expertly divided into separate but interconnecting spaces, including a huge TV room with a sumptuous leather sofa and floor to ceiling patio doors looking out over the private pool. The beautifully fitted kitchen/diner is well equipped with all the appliances you could need to rustle up scrumptious meals for the whole group, served either in the chic formal dining room with its sparkling chandeliers or in the more casual setting of the adjacent open-sided garden room with its timber framed ceiling, pool table, table tennis and table football.

All but one of the villa’s six magnificent bedrooms are located on the ground floor, offering easy access to all the villa’s facilities. Each one is tastefully and creatively decorated, including two dedicated children’s rooms, one with funky bunk beds and another styled as a delightful nursery.

The stunning king size master suite is located on the first floor with a heavenly Far Eastern themed bedroom, complete with a four poster bed, a large balcony with a timber pergola where you can stretch out in private on your sun lounger, and a delightful en suite bath and shower room.

The outside space is simply incredible, with every corner perfectly planned to ensure maximum enjoyment. The pool is an extraordinary creation with flowing waterfalls and three mosaic pool beds set right under the water so you can stay cool as you relax in the sunshine.

For the more energetic, pool volleyball is always an option, while a dedicated swimming channel running along one side allows more serious swimmers space to do their thing. A gently sloping ramp with handrail allows for easy access to the water while a bubbling hot tub on the terrace offers the ultimate indulgence. A brick-built barbecue and sink unit in one corner offers the means to cook as well as dine alfresco, an ice cold beverage in hand as you reflect on the day’s events.

If you’re concerned that too much relaxation could take its toll on your waistline, fear not: beyond the pool, discreetly disguised behind tinted glass, is a superb private gym. The range of cardio and weight training machines and yoga mats will keep your training routine on track while a sauna and power shower will sooth away any aching muscles after your workout.

The younger guests in your party are certainly not forgotten, with a secure play area boasting a climbing frame and swings as well as satellite TV, a CD player with surround sound, DVD player and PlayStation 3.

This really is an exceptional villa for a very memorable holiday shared with friends and family. If you’re travelling in a group larger than twelve, why not consider hiring Villa Buddha along with its five-bedroom sister villa, ‘Xian’? It’s an ideal combination, particularly if you’re celebrating a special occasion together.

Southampton Family (with only pre-school children)
The villa is fantastic and it is the second time we have visited. It offers so much and I cant understand some of the negative feedback from some. It was again a real delight to stay here and providing we can fit it in we will be looking to come back at some point.

Sandhurst Family (the eldest child is at school)
This is a lovely large villa for a family to spend time (and get away from each other). The outdoor facilities are beautiful and the villa is well presented and generally clean throughout. We had such a good time that we were hoping to rebook, but as there is no availability we have gone for it's sister villa opposite:

If you cook this villa is not for you

We stayed in Villa Buddha Playa Blanca from 1st - 8th April 2017 so I was very surprised to see the 9 out of 10 review from "Nicola" a confirmed guest who stayed there the same week - not us !

Reading the other reviews I'm very surprised that no one has mentioned that despite the fact that there are 2 dining tables which seat 20persons the kitchen has only 3ft of worktop mostly taken up by the kettle toaster coffee machine and mixer and a cooker with just a couple of inches of space each side so cooking is an absolute nightmare !

The villa is otherwise very well equipped loads of storage space in the floor to ceiling cupboards in the kitchen and there is a huge selection of crockery and glasses including 18 large dinner plates - unfortunately all too large for the dishwasher so you will wash your dinner plates by hand after each meal and only small coffe cups so we bought mugs and left them

Even preparing breakfast was challenging I complained to the rep who telephoned me on day 2 and made the point that the "kitchen" should be described as a Kitchenette on the James Villa website as we discovered too late it is described on most of the other sites - I presume following complaints

We used the narrow breakfast bar and ironing board as our "worktops "

This villa we thought from the description was new but is not it has been extended and renovated from the original 3 bedrooms and 2 bathroom layout to 6 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms in the main house plus a gym with a further shower room at the bottom of the garden

The villa is advertised as sleeping up to 12 there were 6 of us but bear in mind that 10 people would have to share the 2 downstairs bathrooms if at full capacity

The villa is reached via a very narrow street and you will have to back up or wait if another car is parked up as we had to on arrival

The swimming pool and was perfect lovely and warm as is the hot tub

If you are into Buddha there are over 80 in the villa and a huge selection of ornaments perhaps just too many In particular the 2 large dusty fretwork ornaments permanently attached to the outdoor dining table which prevent you from seeing each other at the table - so annoying and so unhygienic you can see they are filthy inside but can't move them or get into them to clean them

If you do not cook and don't mind sharing bathrooms this is otherwise a lovely villa

We aim to provide accurate and informative information and photographs of all our properties, to help our guests choose a villa to best suit their needs. We believe the photos to show a true reflection of the rooms and facilities available.
We're glad you found the villa well equipped and do hope to welcome you back on another holiday with James soon.

Upon our arrival we were stunned. The design and decor of the villa is beautiful. It was perfect for a family occasion and had everything and more than you could need. We will definitely return!

Edinburgh Family
This villa is amazing. Also the owner stopped by on our first day and answered all our questions. He also took the time to fix the tv which was locked on mute when we arrived which enabled us to play music at the pool. Although the villa is expensive you can't believe the stunning views or the pool area. A car is needed to go into restaurant areas as there was only a small supermarket and a couple of restaurants within walking distance. We would definitely return to this villa in the future.
