The Secret Oasis Villas balance on the edge of Coral Bay, where banana and orange trees outnumber houses. That said, they’re also just a five-minute drive from the restaurants, shops and beach.
Smart, private pools come surrounded by terraces with teal sunloungers. The villas have their own barbecues and al fresco dining areas, too – all overlooking the orchard-dressed countryside.
Traditional and contemporary looks combine at the Secret Oasis Villas – you’ll find stone pillars on the outside and smart wooden furniture and mod-cons on the inside.
Thomson Villas with Pools is now called Villas Collection. Whether you’re after a place with a pool, or a rustic retreat in the heart of the countryside, this is where you’ll find it. Read more ››

Second visit to villa Yiasmin
This was our second visit to Cyprus staying at the secret Oasis villa Yiasmin. It did not disappoint. Quiet and peaceful location, for tranquil relaxation. The villa over looks the sea & is a short drive from either Paphos or Coral Bay. Cannot wait to return. More
We stayed here in April for 2wks , a little peace of heaven , excellent location , Villa was perfect very spacious , clean and well equipped , the pool guy was very helpful and a mind of information on Cyprus ,, there is a supermarket near coral bay called Phillepos which is better equipped than ones back home ..

Great Villa & Pool, nicely Isolated
Perfect pool, great BBQ area and amazing broad band connectivity. What more could you want? Villa is in a small group of 4 but do not overlook eachother. Didn't rate the holiday as 5 star as local town, Coral Bay, is a hole.More
Get away from it all
We booked a one week stay at the Anemona Villa through Thomson. It is a lovely spacious, bright and comfortable villa away from the main tourist hotels in the Coral Bay area. There were two of us and this villa was more than big enough for us, we were outside all the time. It is also very private. Anemona is a detached villa that borders a neighbours home occupied by a local family. They keep dogs that bark throughout the night, however they were really quiet during the day. The other Secret Oasis villas are pretty much opposite and look beautiful aswell. We chose not to have air conditioning as we love the heat, this meant that we could hear the dogs barking at night as we had the windows and doors open. This was our personal experience and perhaps other people would choose to sleep with windows closed and aircon on which may prevent the noise from disturbing sleep. We made the Thomson rep aware of the issue and kept recordings, the rep liased with the landlord and the neighbour did manage to reduce the barking. Aircon is an additional cost if you need it, we love the heat and hate aircon. However, it is worth factoring the cost of aircon into your holiday as there isn't a lot of breeze around and only x2 floor fans if you are too hot. The main bedroom has a firm double bed, dressing table, lots of wardrobe space (inc hangers) and a proper hairdryer. The bathroom has a shower over bath, basin and toilet. The second bedroom has two single beds, wardrobes and access to a family bathroom with a shower cubicle. Kitchen has a washing machine, dish washer, electric hob, oven, large fridge, small freezer box, microwave, basic cutlery, plates and pans. Dishwasher tablets are supplied along with x2 tea towels. Nothing else is supplied to clean or cook with, so buy at the local supermarket or bring your own. We took with us clingfilm, kitchen roll, anti bacterial kitchen wipes, wash up liquid, salt pepper, cafettiere, coffee, teabags, coolbags, water bottles, tupperware, bin liner and a spare toilet roll from home. Two bottles of water were in the fridge on our arrival. We should have also brought handwash for the bathroom. The outdoor pool area is lovely with x4 sunloungers an umbrella and access to shade if you need it. You need to bring your own beach/pool towels are they are not supplied. The wifi is good enough to stream, surf and download so we could watch films under the stars at night on our ipad and download lots more books to read during the day around the pool. Pool guy comes before 8am three times a week, very quiet and polite gentleman. The nearest supermarket is less than 5 minute drive towards Coral Bay called Phillipos. It is very well stocked and the bakery has the freshest and best bread, pastries and cakes. It never had Feta cheese though! The Lidl supermarket is approx 10 minutes away towards Paphos and they had a good selection too (especially Feta cheese) A car is necessary to get around, however once settled at the villa you can explore on foot the banana plantations around the villa. If you put Mavrokolympus Dam into Google Earth you can see whereabouts you will be. There is some construction going on nearby and you can see and hear the machinery and vehicles throughout the day. It is not horrendous and the works are not continuous. It did not affect our solitude or peace during our stay. My partner was badley bitten by sand flies outside at the villa, however I was totally OK. I would recommend bringing an insect repellent with you. There are lots of Gecko's and otherwildlife to watch around the villa. We were lucky enough to see a Whip snake one day by the pool - as soon as it saw us it took off straight away. The Thomson flight is basic, no entertainment and very cramped. Ensure you have got enough food and drink aswell as plenty of reading material etc to pass the time. We arrived late on a Sunday evening, I recommend buying food at the UK airport for when you land as there is nothing at Paphos airport and it may be tricky to eat at a restaurant late on a Sunday night. The free car hire is free if you ask for a full/full fuel arrangement, you don't have to upgrade your excess in case of collision etc. however, the Europcar agents do try and give you a scare story/hard sell. You have to allow them to hold £200 on your credit card incase you get any parking tickets etc, they don't charge anything though its just for security. The Kia Picanto is very small and will accomodate x2 suitcases for two adults but if there is anymore of you then you may have to upgrade the car. It was economical and easy to drive. We checked it over with the car hire firm in the dark for dents etc. It all went smoothly and I didn't feel as if we would be ripped off! We had a lovely, chilled out week and would definitely recommend the Anemona Villa for a laid back, relaxing holiday. Thank you very much to the Landlord for an enjoyable and much needed weeks holiday.More
Relaxing family holiday
Just returned from a fabulous holiday at villa yiasmin. Just to warn people who book through Thomson, the free car hire is not free. Unless you don't upgrade... After arriving late in the evening we were forced into upgrading our insurance otherwise we would have had a €1000 holding fee. Due to flying in late at night and expecting one car for six, not two little cars, we were exhausted and just wanted to get to the villa. Please check the cars over for every scratch and dint, we held a few torches to do this as it was dark. Otherwise you may not get your money back at the end of the holiday. I downloaded the map from paphos international airport to dam service Road so that you can view it off line, it took us straight to the villa and didn't eat my Internet data. Otherwise the lovely rep Gives you paper directions. Onto the villa. It was lovely, it has three bedrooms and has an open plan kitchen, lounge and dining room. Two bedrooms have single beds & one double. Two rooms had ensuite. It was clean & tidy. The villa is homely & has a TV, radio & dvd player. Their is lots of kitchen essentials, we took kitchen roll & washing up liquid, however their was a dishwasher and tablets to use. We used the oven, microwave & washing machine. All were clean & worked well. Outside there is a nice sized pool, with 6/7 sunbeds, bbq area, table and six chairs. Their is a large shaded area & garden. Plus an area to peg your washing out. The villa over looks the valley and sea. Their is nothing about other than a few other villas dotted around. Please note, the air conditioning is an extra cost. It cost us €7 per unit per day. Their are three units in the bedrooms We had read other reviews so were prepared for the extra coat. These are essential as the temperature was around 30 degrees in the evening. Their is a fan in the lounge area, but isn't of much use in the stifling heat. If you let the rep know on arrival she sends the owner to turn it on the next day, so be prepared for one hot night. We spoke to the pool man on the first day & he was lovely, iv seen some reviews saying he was on his phone & woke them up. This isn't true, we didn't see or hear him during the rest of the holiday. He comes on Mondays, Thursdays and Saturday's. Car hire is essential due to the remote nature of the villa. It's five minutes to coral bay & about twenty to paphos, where their are loads of restaurants, bars and shops. In coral bay their is a good supermarket called phillipo's & it sells everything you will need. We took a few bits with us, to tide us over. If your looking for peace & relaxation this is the villa for you. We will definitely return! Iv added a few pictures of villa yiasmin, as their are none on thomsons website. More
