Villas in Bali, Indonesia

Bali is Indonesia’s most popular tourist location and is considered one of Asia's premier tropical island destinations. Steeped in history and renowned for its artistic way of life, Bali is a peaceful contrast to some of the more frantic destinations Asia has to offer.

The inner peace and creative talents of the Balinese has attracted artists the world over fascinated by local dancers, silversmiths, wood carvers, potters and painters that seem to pervade throughout the island. The abundant verdant fields and surrounding sea have long supplied Bali with an easy surplus of food leaving time for life’s more artistic past times. As a result everything in Bali has a creative and religious element centred around the local Banjar (residents association) – little, adorned temples are everywhere, doors are covered in intricate carvings, huge kites ward off evil spirits and colourful roadside ceremonies bring traffic to a standstill.

Bali is a popular destination principally from Australia and Asia but also from all over Europe. The island welcomes thousands of visitors each year to a relaxing lifestyle, stunning beaches, world class surf, vibrant villages, and spectacular scenery all with an exquisite tropical climate. Located approximately two hours’ flying time from Singapore the island is serviced by an international airport at Denpasar with direct flights to and from many major cities in Asia, Europe and Australia and many more via Jakarta, Indonesia’s capital.

The island offers an impressive range of leisure and lifestyle amenities including world-class golf courses, wonderful seascapes for surfing, diving and snorkelling as well as luxurious spas, chic boutiques, tropical forests, towering volcanoes and international cuisine.

4S Villas - Villa Sea

4S Villas - Villa Sea

Indonesia » Bali » Seminyak

Cosy, central and very, very private are the three adjectives we’d use to describe Villa Sea. For one couple, two couples or a family of four this represents great value for money considering the location. You literally cannot get any more central than this. It’s compact, sure, but it’s a perfectly formed sun trap that can’t fail to win you with its charm.

The kitchenette is good for preparing the occasional simple meal and the Casa Gourmet supermarket next door makes this option easy and attractive. After watching the sunset from the beach we had an evening in for a change and enjoyed a good pasta and a bottle of red by the pool. The beckoning restaurants will probably win most of the time, however, and you'll be spoiled for choice with the numbers of fine establishments within walking distance.

4S Villas - Villa Sun

4S Villas - Villa Sun

Indonesia » Bali » Seminyak

What a happy place Villa Sun is. With sun sculptures and sun-shaped chandeliers everywhere, we were in holiday mood from the moment we stepped inside. For a two-bedroom villa in deepest Seminyak, with a pool on one side and a small lawn on the other, we wanted for nothing. And not only is there a supermarket within 100m, but it’s one of the island’s best stocked, so we could get all our gourmet goodies without having to break a sweat. It’s a short stroll to the beach along a quiet set of lanes, which are virtually traffic free so no headaches there. Make sure you get down to the beach at cocktail hour for a sunset sky show that will leave you breathless. Then it’s just a short walk back to Seminyak’s famous restaurants and nightspots.

Villa Adasa - Laksmana

Villa Adasa - Laksmana

Indonesia » Bali » Seminyak

I’m moving in! Put it another way, I don’t want to leave Villa Adasa, ever. Within moments of our arrival, the sounds of the gamelan gave way to early Dylan rasping from the Sonos sound system. How did they KNOW he’s this reviewer’s all-time favourite? Mind-reading was clearly second nature for Villa Adasa’s staff, who seemed to know what we wanted before we did, but were just as adept at giving us complete privacy when that was called for too. While this is a great villa for a family as well as for friends/couples sharing, Villa Adasa manages to achieve a rare intimacy that would make it equally appealing to a couple looking to splurge on space. Villa Adasa delights 24/7. Daytime, we were faced with the taxing decision of whether to dive into an ocean of colourful cushions carpeting the double bale (gazebo), relax on the loungers by the pool, strip to bare essentials on the sun-deck above, or remain supine on the myriad sofas in the living pavilion. At sundown it was no contest; the best place to soak up Bali’s famous purple-hued sunset was from the loveseat on the master bedroom loggia. The night-time atmosphere at Villa Adasa is charming, thanks to its clever ambient lighting and comfortable living area. So dining presented us with an equally weighty dilemma: Do we select from the excellent menu and have our accomplished villa chef whip up a five-course meal or seafood barbecue for us, or do we wander out and take our pick from the many world-class restaurants within moments of the villa? We loved hanging out in the huge master bedroom suite and enjoyed the best night’s sleep thanks to a fabulously comfy bed, luxury goose-down duvet and pillows and high thread-count cotton sateen bed linen. The Sonos music system was swish, and being able to control it from our phone and laptop was pretty cool. And it was heaven having such a wonderful library of coffee table books and glossy magazines to browse. All in all, staying here was like breathing pure oxygen — I was on a permanent health-inducing ‘high’ throughout our all-too-short-stay.

Villa Adenium

Villa Adenium

Indonesia » Bali » Jimbaran

If you like your villas sleek and polished then you are going to love the gleaming surfaces and modern fixtures of Villa Adenium. I found myself constantly sliding my hands over the glossy furnishings and marvelling at the smooth surfaces under foot. Constructed in 2006, the villa has been beautifully maintained and everything feels so shiny and new, it could have been built just yesterday. The hard angles of the design were a little sharp for our taste, but the effect was softened in the evenings with the gentle glow of down-lights, hurricane lamps and wonderful wall lights stencilled from black steel. Views were limited from the ground floor and the pool takes up most of the outdoor space, leaving little room for a garden, but it is still a great spot for lounging, especially while sprawled across cushions in the balé. The views were better upstairs and our favourite spot was on the veranda, where we could ensconce ourselves in the comfy planters chairs, with feet resting on the foot stools – perfectly positioned for a sundowner!

Bedrooms are in the style of contemporary hotel suites, comfortable, minimalist and immaculate – if you’re looking for a rustic homely vibe this is not really the villa for you! With three floors to spread out across, the villa has plenty of space, and the well-equipped basement is an added bonus, especially for ping pong masters such as ourselves. The deliciously fluffy breakfast pancakes served with ornately carved tropical fruit and excellent coffee also deserve a mention.

Villa Aiko

Villa Aiko

Indonesia » Bali » Jimbaran

This luxury hillcrest villa packs a punch with its panoramic views across Jimbaran Bay. We soaked up the vista from Aiko’s infinity pool, second-level terraces, enormous find-me-if-you-can bed – even from our bathtub-for-two!

If you’re looking for traditional Bali-style architecture, Villa Aiko may not be your first choice. But while resolutely city-chic contemporary in design, the villa makes abundant use of natural materials in its construction - think reclaimed ironwood and river-stone walls, teakwood floors, Benkirai-wood decking and ironwood shingle roof. And the essence of Bali is evident in the charming and attentive-but-discreet staff.

The villa manager/executive chef Putu was an absolute treasure. He was completely unfazed by my vegetarian request and created a memorable dinner – spring rolls, pumpkin and basil soup, beetroot and orange appetiser, and Portobello mushrooms en croute with perfectly cooked vegetables and the best mashed potatoes in Bali. And his Eggs Florentine  – the egg poached to perfection, the Hollandaise cancelling days of dedicated Pilates practice – was a fabulous way to kick-start the morning. No wonder some guests stay away from Jimbaran Bay’s seafood restaurants and choose instead to eat in every day, as the visitor’s book attests.

We think Aiko would be a great villa for large family groups. There are so many independent seating areas to break away to for some peace and quiet, and it’s great to find a library in a Bali villa; we really appreciated the wide choice of books. Though all four bedrooms have king-size beds  – no twins – there’s a single bed discreetly designed into the foot of each bed. We thought the fourth bedroom might be best for kids (who tend not to be so view-hungry) as the outlook is partly blocked by the guest pavilion and spiral staircase. One note of caution: there are steep drops from the pool and terraces but, thankfully for parents, glass barriers line both second floor terraces.

Villa Alamanda

Villa Alamanda

Indonesia » Bali » Ubud

This out-of-town villa is a little gem that offers the best of both worlds. On the one hand you will find all the serenity and peace that you would expect from a countryside location, together with the enchantment of a Balinese village, yet you are only five kilometres from the centre of Ubud, where there is plenty to do, including shopping, sightseeing, trekking, river rafting and eating out. The villa itself is romantic, charming and furnished with love, but don’t expect anything too high-tech or lots of fancy facilities because that’s not what Villa Alamanda is about. It’s more about rustic charm than funky architecture, and yes there might be one or two things that could be better maintained, but this is reflected in a very reasonable price. We found the staff to be efficient and friendly, and the chef’s cooking is excellent.

Angel's Villa

Angel's Villa

Indonesia » Bali » Seminyak

Angel’s Villa is compact both in its location and the villa itself – that said, it is bigger than most villas of this type and price range. The outside space is dominated by the pool which is lovely and refreshing – perfect to slide into from the pool-side lounge area – but there’s not much space for kids to run around. Overhead fans provide a good breeze to the open lounge and dining area which is not air-conditioned but is cool and shady. The dining area is a great setting to enjoy meals but do not try to move the table – quite frankly its one of the largest pieces of wood we have laid eyes on – and the quirky holes in the table top will no doubt capture the odd casualty.

All three bedrooms are spacious and have excellent bathrooms – clean, modern and very functional, if a little minimalist. The staff were attentive, although a little timid and their English wasn’t always great, but their desire to please is without compare. As the villa is managed independently, rather than through a specialist management company, the training levels were perhaps not quite up to the usual professional standard. The more senior staff, including the villa manager, were much better but they also work at the owner’s other villa so are not always around. That said, they were easily tracked down when needed.

All in all we liked the villa for what it was and would recommend it for a small group or family, but maybe not for very young children as the pool would be a constant concern.

Villa Anjali Blue

Villa Anjali Blue

Indonesia » Bali » Seminyak

We loved staying at this handsome garden villa and really enjoyed the independence of using the good, modern kitchen or calling on the 24-hour catering service when we were too lazy to cook or dine out. But with so many good restaurants in the neighbourhood that wasn’t often. We were grateful for the daily housekeeping staff – friendly and courteous, with ever-ready big Balinese smiles and passable English – and felt well supported by the villa manager who runs this small complex. The villas are so well designed that despite their proximity, one is not aware of other guests: during our inspection the other two villas were also occupied, but we saw and heard no one.

The garden — intimate and well-landscaped with a variety of ornamental tropical plants — was a perpetual delight as the light changed over the course of the day; and well lit at night. We used it at all hours, as we did the balé (gazebo) — great for sprawling with a book during the day, or slipping away for a private conversation in the evening.  

We found the bedrooms very comfortable and quiet and applauded the sturdy timber desks that are big enough to work at, and with intelligently placed electrical outlets. We also enjoyed the sundeck off one of the upstairs bedrooms, with its big double daybed.

Villa Anjali Green

Villa Anjali Green

Indonesia » Bali » Seminyak

We found Villa Anjali Green to be a great solution for four people with different needs: near the beach/away from the crowds; a good kitchen for self-caterers/prefer to be cooked for/prefer dining out; love air conditioning/love fresh air; don’t want to be waited on hand and foot/need a cleaning staff … and don’t forget the pool. The villa also managed to very successfully combine modern architecture with natural materials, Indonesian textiles and ethnic art.

The visual focus of Anjali Green is the garden and pool, which gives a wonderful tropical atmosphere to the living and dining areas. Comfortable rattan lounge chairs on a wooden deck at the far end of the pool allow serene sun-bathing for two, but the lawn beside the pool was big enough for all four of to play ball.

We found the two bedrooms to be very quiet and comfortable. Some of us enjoyed the gentle haze of morning light coming through the fine curtains; others liked being able to shut out the light and sleep till noon without disturbance. The outdoor shower areas were great, with rain showers and hot water that comes on instantly (unlike in many older properties in Bali!). We appreciated the sturdy timber desks that are big enough to work at, with room for a laptop and files next to the flat-screen TV, and intelligently placed electrical outlets next to the desk. We loved the Balinese touches, such as the repousée metal boxes – fashioned in the manner of Balinese offerings boxes – in the bathrooms and kitchen for odds and ends, and the fresh frangipani blossoms placed around the rooms when we first arrived.

The villa manager stayed on till late in the evening, way past his hours, just to welcome us; and the security staff were very helpful, calling us a taxi when we wanted to go out in the evening. Housekeepers were friendly and courteous, with ever-ready big Balinese smiles.

Villa Anjali Orange

Villa Anjali Orange

Indonesia » Bali » Seminyak

We loved staying at this handsome garden villa and really enjoyed the independence of using the good, modern kitchen or calling on the 24-hour catering service when we were too lazy to cook or dine out. But with so many good restaurants in the neighbourhood that wasn’t often. We were grateful for the daily housekeeping staff – friendly and courteous, with ever-ready big Balinese smiles and passable English – and felt well supported by the villa manager who runs this small complex. The villas are so well designed that despite their proximity, one is not aware of other guests: during our inspection the other two villas were also occupied, but we saw and heard no one. With extra beds and the option of also renting the adjacent Villa Anjali Purple, you could sleep up to 12 people. (Note that the upstairs bedroom at Anjali Orange may not be suitable for the elderly or very young as there is no hand-rail on the stairs).

The garden — intimate and well-landscaped with a variety of ornamental tropical plants — was a perpetual delight as the light changed over the course of the day; and well lit at night. We used it at all hours, as we did the balé (gazebo) — great for sprawling with a book during the day, or slipping away for a private conversation in the evening (although we thought the cushions could be bigger).

We loved the collection of carved wooden figures half-hidden in the plants at the far end of the pool, like a cluster of guardian spirits. We found the bedrooms very comfortable and quiet and applauded the sturdy timber desks that are big enough to work at, and with intelligently placed electrical outlets. We also enjoyed the sundeck off the upstairs bedroom — starkly unfurnished, but so were we.
