Villa Bandama Golf is a large villa now turned into a charming adults-only boutique B&B. Perched on a mountain-top, it overlooks the Bandama golf-course and has panoramic views of the Bandama crater and then on right out to the sea. Golfers are especially well catered-for of course, but this location is also ideal for a romantic getaway or simply a holiday well away from the commercial resorts.
The garden that surrounds the villa has a nice swimming pool and terrace, all positioned to make the most of the spectacular views. Guests can wake up each morning to a stunning sunrise over the sea.
The spacious and comfortable lounge continues the theme of panoramic views, and is delicately decorated with lovely Balinese furniture. There’s a big television showing live golf, but you might also just want to get a drink from the honesty bar and settle down for a good read, just raising your head every now and then to drink in the view.
The five guest rooms are stylishly furnished with lots of richly coloured wood and delicate fabrics. There’s air-conditioning, heating, a flatscreen television, a beautiful bathroom, bathrobes, slippers, and… did I mention the view?
The Real Club de Golf de Las Palmas is in the valley just below the Bed & Breakfast. It’s less than 5 minutes to the first tee, and guests at the Villa Bandama Golf enjoy excellent discounts on the green fees.
