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.

Mandalay Hideaway

Mandalay Hideaway

Indonesia » Bali » Tabanan

How many times have you been bamboozled to the point of screaming blue murder with the mass of remote controls presented before you in a strange new place? No problems here. The thoughtful owners of this villa have written out instructions for each and every appliance (Apple TV, DVD, Blu-Ray, Indovision satellite channels, PlayStation and the sound system) in intricate detail, laminated them and given them a leather bound folder along with a library of every movie and DVD in the house to make new-media-stress a non-starter. What a joy! The staff (concierge, personal butlers, chef) are all professionally trained and as discrete as you instruct them to be. All we had to do was push the service button in the balé (and in every room) and there they were, smiling and ready to please. Think twice about having a treatment in the spa room, however; massages here are so good that you run the risk of calling the therapist back every single day for more, threatening to put a dent in your wallet. The beauty of the rice terraces, coconut palms, river and (on clear mornings and evenings) the mountains, were what got us the most though; they seemed so close you could almost reach out and touch them.

Villa Matahari

Villa Matahari

Indonesia » Bali » Canggu area » Seseh-Tanah Lot

This wonderful spacious villa is situated just metres from a rugged beach, with views (from upstairs) of the ocean, rice fields and traditional village life. During our stay, we walked a few metres up the road to the temple and had a chat with the very friendly villagers, followed by a stroll along the beach to watch an amazing sunset. If you’re looking for nightlife and shopping, this is not the villa for you. Instead it is a place to relax with family or friends and immerse yourself in the local culture. Matahari is also somewhere you can hold dinner parties, events and weddings. The amount of space will astound you, and the staff are very willing. The villa operates a grocery system, so staff will do the food shopping for you with no extra costs thrown in.

Villa Mayana

Villa Mayana

Indonesia » Bali » Canggu area » Canggu

Arriving at Villa Mayana with a small group of friends, we immediately felt both at home and spoilt in all the right ways. The design and layout is perfect for plenty of social hang-out time, while the open views of gardens, pool, rice fields and sky give a grand impression.

It was a treat to soak in the luxurious tubs in the downstairs ensuites, and while the upstairs bedroom lacks a tub, it does have its own furnished landing area overlooking the lounge, and is good spot for some private reading or surfing the net from your laptop (WiFi connection is not the strongest, so don’t expect to be doing much downloading). This upstairs bedroom would not be suitable for younger kids though, as neither the steps nor the landing area is safely railed.

Feeling so peacefully secluded and surrounded by nature, yet with such easy access to all that Bali has to offer thanks to a complimentary car and driver (guests do pay for petrol), we felt that Villa Mayana offers a well-rounded home away from home.

Villa Mimi

Villa Mimi

Indonesia » Bali » Greater Seminyak » Seminyak

You can always tell when an owner has designed a villa for him or herself and not just to turn a profit. Villa Mimi has that clean, chic, trendy Seminyak sense of place that screams contemporary Bali style, yet also manages to feel like home. The villa’s charm and functionality make for a great long weekend getaway or a home base for the summer. This little gem works very well for Bali visitors who want to be in the thick of things, yet covet privacy and an interesting architectural aesthetic. Although the media room could use a larger, comfier couch, we liked the thoughtfully framed personal photos that give a glimpse of the owner’s passion for life, and the big book selection. I soon found a collection of short stories written by a long-time Bali expat about her quirky life on the island and sank into one of the bean bags by the pool as Nur the housekeeper delivered French press coffee in eclectic mismatched china. My favourite quote captured the essence of our stay at Villa Mimi, “Those in synchronicity with Bali are among the happiest people I have ever known.” As the afternoon lazed on, Nur checked in about ordering dinner. We sheepishly asked if she would be willing to make soto ayam, an Indonesian twist on chicken noodle soup (which wasn’t on the menu). Without hesitation, she hopped on her motorbike to grab the ingredients and within an hour, we had a healthy, steaming lemongrass broth simmering on the stove and bowls of rice noodles topped with sliced chicken breast, green onion, bean sprouts and wedges of lime. Ask and you shall receive!

Villa Niloufar

Villa Niloufar

Indonesia » Bali » Canggu area » Seseh-Tanah Lot

Upon arrival at Villa Niloufar, our opinion about the modern architecture was initially divided. But over the course of 24 hours it became two very positive ‘yays’. This villa is refreshingly different in that it has thrown out any pretence to traditional Bali style (thatched-roofs-and-coconut-wood) by following a rule of its own. Despite its clean lines, nature is embraced by the design. Niloufar is also way more eco-friendly than most villas profess to be, with passive cooling techniques such as cross ventilation and rooftop ponds, an advanced ioniser filter system for the swimming pool, and a water recycling system that allows waste water to be reused in the gardens.  We first reviewed Niloufar in 2009, and on a recent revisit we were impressed with how well the villa has been maintained.

The staff are friendly and diligent; they are there when you need something, but also understand the importance of privacy. The infinity lap pool sits above the river valley with beautiful views, while the sun loungers at the far end are in the form of one large daybed with individual uprights, making for a very communal lazing space. Once installed in the gazebo with the drink of your choice, you can sit back and enjoy the scene in front of you: the river, banked with mature trees, giant bamboo and jungle, and a rice terrace on the far side. This is also a great place for a massage. Judging from the sights and sounds, there is an abundance of wildlife around the villa; we counted many swifts and kingfishers, and even watched a large monitor lizard lazily swim across the river. A dip in the river is fun, there are a couple of small rapids and the water is super-refreshing (but don’t swallow it). There is also a small temple and a holy freshwater spring on the river’s edge. It’s a thrill to stay in a piece of modern architecture that feels as though its roots are in the dwellings of the ancients.

Nirwana Golf  Villas - Ocean and Golf

Nirwana Golf Villas - Ocean and Golf

Indonesia » Bali » Canggu area » Seseh-Tanah Lot

Even though you’re almost on the fairway of one of Asia’s best golf courses, you don’t have to be a golfer to enjoy a stay at this villa. Private homes with beachfront locations are not in abundance on Bali’s south-west coast, which makes Ocean and Golf a particularly good find as well as being good value. There are few better spots to enjoy the famous Bali sunsets than from this villa’s breezy balcony.        

Ocean and Golf incorporates the best of both worlds; a quiet and private residence which, for an additional daily fee per person, also has access to leisure facilities at the neighbouring 5-star resort – you can even order room service (although you do have your own cook who prepare meals from a suggestion menu charging only the cost of ingredients plus 20% service charge). However for guests who want to venture out to experience the shopping, restaurants and nightlife in town, this villa is a little remote (Seminyak, the popular entertainment hub, lies 23km south). We enjoyed walking around the sprawling grounds and whizzing from the villa to the hotel lobby in our golf buggy. The view of Tanah Lot temple from Cendana, one of the award-winning restaurants at the Pan Pacific Nirwana Bali resort, is magnificent – especially at sunset.    

Ocean and Golf is an ideal base for a group of golfers or a golfer who wants to bring the family along. It is sensible for seniors – there are two downstairs bedrooms if steps are difficult to navigate. Whilst there is a twin bedroom for children upstairs and plenty of TV’s to go around. As long as they don’t wander onto the fairway, it is a very safe environment for kids, and the complimentary facilities at the Pan Pacific Nirwana Bali  resort will keep children busy for weeks.

Nirwana Golf Villas - Villa Arjuna

Nirwana Golf Villas - Villa Arjuna

Indonesia » Bali » Canggu area » Seseh-Tanah Lot

If you are going on a golf holiday – and let’s face it you can’t beat the double win combination of not only Bali, but one of the best courses in Asia – living on site is such a privilege. The great thing about Villa Arjuna is that when you hole out on 18 in the humid tropical heat it’s only a five-minute drive back to the villa where lunch, cold beers, and a cool swimming pool await you.

There are no swimming beaches or independent fine-dining restaurants in the immediate vicinity, but the Nirwana Bali Golf Resort is a five-star facility with plenty of contemporary dining options including a fine-dining restaurant of its own. A spa and health club, tennis courts and a kids’ club are just some of the other attractions for families. Best of all, the giant resort pool with 54m hydro-slide is perfect for keeping the kids amused all day long (extra charges apply for use of resort facilities – see rates page). Players therefore shouldn’t feel at all guilty about turning their better halves and quarters into golf widows and orphans…they just won’t care!

Nirwana Golf Villas - Villa Senja

Nirwana Golf Villas - Villa Senja

Indonesia » Bali » Canggu area » Seseh-Tanah Lot

Villa Senja is not a swanky hi-tech villa, but this is reflected in the price, which is especially good when you take into account the discounts that you are going to get on your golf rates. This is the original luxury Bali style; commonly found in villas and hotels that were built in the ‘90s.Things move fast in Bali, especially in the field of design, so the style looks a bit dated these days, and is sometimes referred to as ‘Bali for beginners’. Nevertheless, the architecture, thatched roofs, local stonework, interior design and furnishings remain both charming and very tropical. There are numerous benefits to being linked to the resort; apart from all the aforementioned facilities, there is an on-site generator (so you won’t get any of the power cuts, which are unfortunately rather common in Bali) and the water pressure in the showers is great (again, this is something that can sometimes be a bit hit and miss in Bali). The villa is a long way from the delicatessens of Seminyak (18km), so if you want meals created with gourmet ingredients you will need to let the staff know well in advance. Local specialties with fresh local ingredients are therefore the cook’s forte, and you can always enjoy fine dining at the resort.

Oazia Aqua

Oazia Aqua

Indonesia » Bali » Greater Seminyak » Umalas-Kerobokan

To find a two-bedroom villa with two living areas and such an abundance of space is rare indeed. To find one that also includes an onsite holistic spa, and a car and driver on call eight hours per day is a first for us.

During our short stay at Villa Oazia Aqua we spent an afternoon by the pool, followed by a massage in the spa; we sipped a sunset cocktail on the terrace, enjoyed a romantic alfresco dinner, an indulgent soak in the outdoor bathtub and a movie session on the wonderfully soft couches, and concluded that this was an oasis indeed. Everywhere we looked there was something to enjoy: antique statues and curios, beckoning sofas, towering trees, huge pots of bougainvillea, a lotus pond, rice terraces and billowing white curtains catching the breeze.
