4-bedroom Villas in Ketewel, Bali, Indonesia

Surrounded by terraced rice fields, tobacco plantations and banana groves, the sprawling fishing community of Ketewel presents a picture-perfect version of Bali. Comprising a string of coastal villages, the area boasts awe-inspiring views of the ocean towards the beaches of Sanur and Nusa Dua, the islands of Lembongan, Ceningan and Penida, and the stunning mountains of east Bali.

Despite its outstanding natural beauty and excellent location merely 40 minutes from the airport, Ketewel offers a peaceful respite from the hustle and bustle of other beach towns. However, there are plenty of things to do in Ketewel and its neighbouring areas. The best way to experience its rural charm is by walking or cycling along the many quiet rural roads and paddy walkways. Ketewel’s beaches, with their glistening black volcanic sands and offshore reefs, are world-renowned for their excellent surf breaks.

A holiday in Ketewel must include a visit to the Bali Zoo and the nearby Bali Bird Park. Both are a short drive away and offer a great day out for the entire family. For lovers of art, crafts and culture, Ketewel is only half an hour away from the mountain town of Ubud, where art peeks from every corner.

While there are several local 'warungs' (eateries) to choose from, you’ll find a great variety of restaurants and cafés just down the road in Sanur – a popular and laid-back beach town twenty minutes away. The more adventurous can hire a guide and explore Beji Guwang’s spectacular hidden canyon in nearby Sukawati – an incredible experience which involves bouldering, climbing and wading through waist-high waters. Exotic, peaceful and untouched, Ketewel’s rural charm remains unmatched.

Villa Puri Nirwana

Villa Puri Nirwana

Indonesia » Bali » East Coast » Ketewel

Six years on from the original review, we enjoyed a delightful stay at Puri Nirwana. It was a pleasure to find such a quiet part of Bali’s coast completely untouched by the crowds, even in high season. The location is spectacular, and the views from the villa attention-grabbing throughout the day.

We had the beach to ourselves apart from a lone fisherman, and enjoyed walking along the beach-front promenade, to Pura Masceti, one of Bali’s nine sacred directional temples. The sunrises over Cucukan Beach are sensational, and we were mesmerised by the island and mountain views.

The villa is large and the staff are very friendly, full of smiles; the chef, who had worked at Ubud culinary icon Mosaic, prepared some beautifully presented meals for us. Puri Nirwana is well designed to accommodate large family groups — it is possibly the best place on Bali to bring someone with mobility issues — and the stunning spa pavilion is the perfect spot to enjoy a leisurely massage.

The Ylang Ylang

The Ylang Ylang

Indonesia » Bali » East Coast » Ketewel

Initially, The Ylang Ylang can come across as quite daunting, especially the atrium, but it doesn't take long to settle in and feel comfortably at home. The staff are incredibly welcoming and gracious; some of them have been working here for nine years. The black and gold theme will not be to everyone’s taste – it is a bit glitzy – and we never did figure out what the blue lighting under the beds was all about!

Given its seafront location and the salt water environment maintenance is a continual battle and, in places, the villa is definitely showing its age. Some fittings may not work and some of the huge doors maybe stiff – it shouldn’t affect your enjoyment of Villa Ylang Ylang though, and staff are on hand if you need help with anything. Some of the bathrooms feel a little dated but they function just fine.
