It used to be that bucket-list group vacations meant, at best, conjoined hotel rooms. That’s changed. Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts offer scores of exclusive villas for your next escape. If it’s privacy, top-quality service and unparalleled access to the world’s most beautiful places you seek, consider your search officially over.
Private beach access? Check. Private chef? Check. Private infinity pool? Check. The three- and four-bedroom Beachfront Villa Residence is ideal for families seeking a seaside respite sans crowds.
A singularly indulgent retreat of exceptional space and tropical enchantment, the Beachfront Villa Residences are the pinnacle of resplendent island living with vaulted wood-panelled ceilings, gentle fans and hand-carved mahogany furnishings.
Accommodating up to eight people in the three-bedroom and ten people in the four-bedroom, including up to six children, the traditionally elegant villa includes indoor and outdoor living spaces and gardens filled with frangipani, bougainvillea and hibiscus. The 24-hour service team includes a butler and a personal chef who provide daily breakfast, snacks and evening canapés, with 24-hour in-villa dining available in either the expansive great room or the gated garden courtyard. The Villa Residences are also equipped with a chef’s kitchen and stocked bar.
The Ocean Club, A Four Seasons Resort, Bahamas
Tucked away in the extensive private gardens beside the Hotel, the four-bedroom Villa Rose-Pierre provides unparalleled French Riviera living with expansive Mediterranean views and around-the-clock butler service. Linger over your morning coffee on a sea-view balcony – each bedroom has one – before heading to the heated, mosaic-laid infinity pool for a swim. Challenge yourself on the private synthetic-clay tennis court or in the fitness room, complete with two treadmills and strength-training equipment. Just don’t leave without taking an evening meal under the stars on the rooftop terrace or letting your dedicated butler arrange an unforgettable cruise on the Mediterranean Sea.
Grand-Hotel du Cap-Ferrat, A Four Seasons Hotel
Inspired by Northern Thailand’s Lanna architecture and surrounded by its own garden, the Four-Bedroom Residence Villa with Pool looks peacefully out on the Mae Rim valley.
After soaking up the sun on your private deck, take a dip in the large swimming pool, surrounded by lush tropical gardens. At day’s end, gather in the sitting room for cocktails and canapés, before enjoying a chef-cooked meal in the spacious dining room. Want to keep the party going? Retire to the adjoining wine room for an after-dinner drink and dessert, or sit before the fireplace.
Four Seasons Resort Chiang Mai
Offering views of the Atlas Mountains, the Royal Villa pampers guests with ample private terraces, a central salon with a fireplace, and common areas inside and out, all set around a lap-size pool. Each bedroom has a full marble bath en suite. With an eight-person whirlpool spa and private barbecue area, you can take a late-afternoon dip and then, under the stars, enjoy a meal prepared by your private chef.
Four Seasons Resort Marrakech
Take the idea of a penthouse suite to the next level by reserving the entire top floor here. Your 16th-floor domain of 21 sumptuous guest rooms features suitably top-level audiovisual integration – imagine a concealed media screen and projector that drops from the ceiling – and multiple terraces from which to view the stunning sunset over the Resort’s lakes and woodlands. Ask a host of complimentary butlers to unpack your bags, arrange theme park excursions, coordinate dinner parties with formal table service or organize kids’ activities.
Four Seasons Resort Orlando at Walt Disney World® Resort
Prieta Bay unfolds before you, whether you’re perched on the terrace or floating in the heated infinity pool, and stand-alone designs bring the outdoors in. The new three- to five-bedroom Prieta Bay Villas stand in an exclusive, secluded enclave in the peninsula, just a short walk from the Resort’s amenities. Enjoy full access to Prieta Beach Club, the private members’ club of Peninsula Papagayo, before returning home to relax in lavish living areas, gourmet kitchen and large outdoor terraces with built-in barbecues.

Enchant your group with a stay at Four Seasons Maldives Private Island at Voavah, where the island is yours and every room is just steps from the Indian Ocean. Up to 20 people can make this paradise their own. Deepen your connection to the island with Voavah Summer, the island’s own luxury yacht, and take in the unforgettable sights of the UNESCO Biosphere Reserve that surrounds you before watching the sun set over the turquoise paradise. When it’s time to tuck in for the evening, retreat to the master bedroom – three walls of sliding glass windows let the tropical breeze in. For some extra alone time, take your breakfast on the private deck just off the master’s sitting area. Not to worry – the other guests are coddled too. Their en-suite bathrooms are outfitted with outdoor garden showers.
