Villa Batujimbar

Villa Batujimbar

Indonesia » Bali » East Coast » Sanur-Ketewel

With so many ‘ultra villas’ in Bali nowadays boasting all the bells, whistles and 80-plus-inch televisions, it’s always nice to stay in a grand old villa like Batujimbar, a classic example of the original Bali style, where the sizzle is in the foundations and the history, and not the marketing. Batujimbar comes from a time when wealth and grandeur was wrapped up in simplicity and we revelled in it. Knowing that this was the place of choice for the likes of Mick Jagger, and chums, makes it somehow just a little more special, too.

Celebrity hype aside, the physicality of the villa is magnificent in its own right. It ticked all the boxes for us and it was a real pleasure to stay here and take a trip back in time. The grounds are huge, the bedrooms super-comfortable and the gardens are overflowing with trees and flowers under a tropical sun, with the beach just beyond the front gate making for a most relaxing stay.  Oh, and the food served from the villa’s kitchen is something else!

Villa Hansa

Villa Hansa

Indonesia » Bali » Canggu area » Canggu

As spiritual souls with environmentally and community-aware leanings and a thirst for local culture, this one-of-a-kind villa has our name all over it.  Villa Hansa (no coincidence it’s named after the Goddess of Knowledge) offers visitors so much more than just another Balinese deluxe villa (although the design is pretty gorgeous too).  The devoted staff and ever-smiling manager sustain the Hansa philosophy when the owners are away.  As the villa’s spiritual advisor, the manager is amazingly knowledgeable about Balinese culture and traditions, he was happy to divulge all over dinner and accompany us to a traditional Hindu ceremony in the local village.  If you’re lucky enough to stay during a full or new moon (like we did), you also get a rare opportunity to watch Hindu priests bless the property.  Staff, too, went out of their way to introduce us to daily Balinese life:  teaching us how to make traditional palm leaf offerings and Indonesian delicacies in the kitchen – activities that the children really enjoyed.

And it’s refreshing to find a villa where the owners are committed to eco-friendly practices, a healthy lifestyle and giving back to the community.  These surfing and yoga devotees support local organic farmers, practice recycling in the kitchens and insist on biodegrable household cleaning.  We also learnt about their wonderful trust fund, the Hansa Foundation, set-up to educate local children in traditional culture, arts, music and the environment.

We thought that Villa Hansa would be ideal for groups of friends and for family groups spanning a wide age range – there are bedroom configurations here to suit all.

Jivana Beach Villas - Villa Ananda

Jivana Beach Villas - Villa Ananda

Thailand » Phuket » Natai Beach

Unique, luxurious, private and peaceful … Villa Jivana Ananda is a superb illustration of a private villa managed with such expertise that it exudes all of the convenience of a six star hotel. Beach holidays are at their best when, at the end of a long, sandy and salty day, you can shower, refresh and enjoy a long cool drink and a divine meal prepared by the chef.

At Villa Ananda, our days were filled with swims in the ocean, searching for shells in the rock pools, enjoying fabulous Thai cuisine and relaxing in style. It is the perfect choice for families or friends. The villa is safe and practical for children – ours had an absolute ball here - yet sufficiently private and certainly spacious enough to give everyone ample room to themselves. Ananda has to be one of the best villas we have seen in Asia. Note this villa does not permit weddings or large functions. If this is something you are interested in look at its sister, Villa Shanti.

Lassana Kanda

Lassana Kanda

Sri Lanka » South Coast » Galle

Lassana Kanda is a destination in itself – one of Sri Lanka’s grandest private villas (on a par with those in Bali and Thailand) and offers such an abundance of space and facilities that it encourages you to stay put.  The interiors were furnished elegantly and felt distinctly uncluttered.

The pool is stunning and plenty large enough to swim decent lengths while others relax in the shallows and admire the gorgeous palm-fringed valley views.  The meticulously designed tropical gardens complemented the verdant hillside setting perfectly.  We loved the pool pavilion for dining and the sun deck for relaxing on the plentiful loungers.

The guesthouse has a little kitchenette and works well for independent teens as well as elderly relatives or less mobile family members who prefer ground level bedrooms.  There are plenty of kids’ toys and facilities at the villa and this, together with such an abundance of space for letting off steam or finding your own quiet corner, make Lassana Kanda a dream destination for families.

The villa has a dedicated staff team.  The manager is also an experienced chef (he’s worked in Australia and the UK) and served us seared tuna with a mango salsa for lunch and a Thai selection from one of his evening set menus; both meals were excellent.  Staff do not live in, but there is 24-hour security and the manager is on call.

Villa Malaathina

Villa Malaathina

Indonesia » Bali » Greater Seminyak » Umalas-Kerobokan

With its palatial proportions and decadent style, it’s tempting to say that we felt like royalty staying at Malaathina, but the villa is so contemporary that the term seems a little inappropriate and old-fashioned. Perhaps ‘movie stars’ is closer to the mark! We stayed alone and cheerfully lapped up the luxury, but were rather tempted to invite some friends along, because this is really a villa that deserves to be shared. With so much space and such a glamorous setting it simply begs for celebrations and events, and the atmospheric Javanese rock garden looked like an idyllic spot for a wedding ceremony.

I could easily imagine joining a high-end retreat here too – the yoga pavilion was a lovely space, and very well equipped (one of the owners is a yoga teacher – so no surprise there,) and the overall vibe, with the rice-paddy views and myriad terraces and gardens is wonderfully serene. We didn’t have a chance to enjoy the teppanyaki grill, but what a fabulous idea. When we return with a big group of friends that will be top of our list!

Villa Mandalay

Villa Mandalay

Indonesia » Bali » Canggu area » Seseh-Tanah Lot

We’ve never seen a villa with its own pitch and putt golf range before and thought it was a tremendous addition for family fun or for allowing golfers to iron out glitches before parting with the huge green fees for the 18-hole course New Kuta Golf Club (34km).

We loved the fact that nearly all the rooms in the villa are on one level, making it very social, accessible and appropriate for all ages. And all of the bedrooms (with the exception of the lower studio room - which is slightly smaller - but very private) are very similar and won't be the cause of any group envy.

We lazed away the latter part of the day on comfy couches shaded by the funky bamboo roof of the elevated open-air living and dining deck by the pool. From here we observed the farmers ploughing and flooding the rice terraces in preparation for planting. The staff were diligently on hand with offers of snacks and drink refills to refresh us throughout these exhausting people-watching activities. At sunset we retired for a splendid Indonesian dinner in the main hall.

Villa The Sanctuary

Villa The Sanctuary

Indonesia » Bali » Canggu area » Canggu

If you imagine Bali purely as a sun, surf and sand-between-the-toes holiday destination, then The Sanctuary will give you a whole new perspective on this Island of the Gods. The Sanctuary is jungle, river, tall trees with buttressed roots: what marketing and advertising people describe as charming, heartfelt, grand, traditional, rural, and the very essence of old Bali. It really is a stunner of a villa, a real stunner. It’s so stunning we have to say it more than once.  

The size of the place is beyond belief. Three hectares of river and jungle land with eight queen- and king-size beds and a bunkhouse for 20 youngsters, The Sanctuary is something that would suit very large extended families with hordes of kids. It only follows that weddings here would be stupendous with all that immaculate lawn space and the abundance of natural surroundings.

Our group of four could hardly take it all in, so after a quick look round we pretty swiftly decamped to the swimming pool terrace and billiard room where we spent the afternoon eating, drinking, pooling (wet and dry), and marvelling at the wildlife. We had one of the standard bedrooms (and by standard I mean pretty big and posh) and our friends lucked into the self-contained villa, which had its own pool and a massive bedroom with views right down onto the river gorge – a very wise choice, and one we were too slow to make. Still, with the distance between us, we were able to sing in the shower at the tops of our voices without the worry of judgement.

Sava Beach Villas - Villa Tievoli

Sava Beach Villas - Villa Tievoli

Thailand » Phuket » Natai Beach

With its white-sand beach, sea breezes, open design and wealth of facilities for entertainment and unwinding, Villa Tievoli is one of the most uplifting villas we’ve visited.  Natai Beach is gaining a reputation as an exclusive area for discerning travellers seeking both pampering and peace, and Tievoli at Sava certainly delivers on these fronts, especially with its own spa facilities and two professional spa therapists in-house!  Those who prefer a more modern style will appreciate Tievoli’s design, which uses both industrial and natural materials to bring life and a sense of openness to every room.

With the large pool lined with several sun beds, sofas and cute ‘apple’ loveseats, new villa guests might think they have arrived at a hotel – it’s just so spacious and elaborately furnished both inside and out. Tievoli was designed as an ideal venue to hold special events; we were told it has already hosted some great weddings and that the management company can liaise with local event planners to help cater and service larger events.   

With its seven bedrooms arranged in two separate wings, the villa’s ideally laid out for two families or groups wanting to share a holiday without imposing too much upon one another.  Although there’s plenty of peace and privacy here, Tievoli is part of a seven-villa estate so it lacks the feel of a total hideaway.  But with an empty, 10-kilometre-long beach at your doorstep and mostly rural surrounds, a tranquil stay is all but assured here.  Those hoping for a peek into Thailand’s more traditional life don’t have to travel far to find it.  Though our stay was too brief to try this ourselves, we were told that other guests have delighted in wandering down the beach to meet the local fishermen and buy their day’s catch fresh off the boat!

Taman Ahimsa

Taman Ahimsa

Indonesia » Bali » Canggu area » Seseh-Tanah Lot

If you’re looking for nightlife and shopping, Taman Ahimsa is probably not the villa for you, but if you want to retreat from the world, awaken your soul, practice yoga and meditation, eat healthy food and experience therapeutic massages, this transformative place will inspire you more than you ever imagined possible. Even if you’re not really into the spiritual concept, and you don’t understand much about chakras, mandala thankas, crystals and healing circles, you will still appreciate the beautiful close-to-nature setting, the sight and sound of the sea, the romantic architecture and the peaceful ambiance.

Although the villa promotes the holistic concept, you don’t have to be on a spiritual retreat to come here; but who knows, you might just be inspired to experience something new. The gardens and interiors are fun to explore too, in every room we found a traditional Balinese instrument, an extraordinary crystal or an antique, or a funky lamp or table. Floors and doors are made from old teak, ironwood and two-toned tamarind wood, which has been recycled from boats and old buildings. Please note the villa has a no smoking policy.

Taman Ahimsa is managed by Fivelements, a company that specialises in holistic healing retreats, centred at Puri Ahimsa, 20km away. For a truly amazing experience arrange for the villa’s driver to take you to Fivelements Puri Ahimsa for a holistic treatment performed by an authentic Balinese healer.

Villa Waru

Villa Waru

Indonesia » Bali » Nusa Dua-Tanjung Benoa

Safe environment, spacious garden and loads of different living spaces make Villa Waru an absolute dream for large family groups, especially as kids are so well catered for here. The garden is truly enchanting; full of little artistic touches; secreted statues, brightly painted doorways, timber carvings and stone gargoyles. Adventurous kids will love these surroundings and there’s plenty to keep them amused inside too; big TV, DVDs, pool table, board games etc. For extra peace of parents’ minds, a lifeguard can even attend at the villa (extra charge).

With such a generous scattering of living and dining space, everyone will be able to find their own favourite corner. We loved the Gekko Suite’s intimate living space tucked far to the back of the property. Waru’s two residences are joined by a pathway through the garden making it ideal for two families (or even three) holidaying together, and an excellent location for hosting special events.

We thought that the villa staff did a great job; Wayan was certainly a good cook, preparing meals from an extensive menu of Indonesian and western dishes (provisions on guest account at cost plus a 25% service fee). Waru has a permanent staff of seven, but more are brought in when the villa is fully occupied.
