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.

The Purist - River Residence

The Purist - River Residence

Indonesia » Bali » Ubud

Although River Residence is part of a complex of villas, complete with a spa, it felt very private and surprisingly spacious - especially when you consider that it hasn’t got its own pool or garden. The balconies not only overhang the river valley but also seem to draw the outdoors inside. This is a close-to-nature experience; you will awake to the dawn chorus, be serenaded during the day by cicadas and fall asleep to the sound of the frogs. The shared 12m infinity swimming pool is situated beside the river valley and bordered by a large timber deck, furnished with sunbeds. There’s plenty of room here and it’s a nice place for breakfast and lunch. The food is excellent, with an international à la carte menu and lots of healthy choices. The on-site spa is a delight, complete with a double treatment room, romantic bathtub for two, a manicure and pedicure room, and an open-sided upstairs yoga platform. Treatments in the spa are at extra cost. Upon our return, three years after our original review, we were delighted to see that the property has been immaculately maintained. The Purist was very new on our first visit but is now well established as a boutique villa-hotel and spa, with plans to increase its number of villas in the near future.

Rumah Puro Blanco

Rumah Puro Blanco

Indonesia » Bali » Canggu area » Canggu

With four bedrooms and comfy living spaces, Rumah Puro Blanco is a great party pad for a group, or base for a family who will enjoy being pampered by the attentive Balinese staff. There’s a hidden kitchen off the guest kitchen, enabling the staff to prepare for dinner parties and functions out of sight. The minimalist structure is well designed; we particularly liked the kitchen, living area and ensuite bathrooms – although there are a number of edges and ledges that could be hazardous for young children.    

The pure white colour theme is rather heavenly. Lush rows of palms along the boundary wall, beside stepping stones that run the length of the pool, provide some colour and remind you that you are in fact still on planet earth. As if by magic, tall palm trees spring out of the Palimanan stone floor and greenery cascades from the first floor. Glass containers in the living area sprout green reeds – indeed it’s quite remarkable how lush this villa is considering it has absolutely no designated garden area.         

We enjoyed doing a few laps in the large pool, hanging out on the daybed in the balé and sunbathing on the comfy rattan lounges. The pool is interestingly designed with sculpted shallow areas perfect for sunbathing whilst keeping cool in the water.

Villa Pursang

Villa Pursang

Indonesia » Bali » Canggu area » Canggu

Villa Pursang offers the quintessential Bali holiday experience: it is a safe, comfortable, peaceful environment, yet not too far from the island’s popular beaches and towns. The large grassed garden and infinity-edge swimming pool with its adjacent thatched bale relaxation pavilion provide a beautiful focal point to the property and make the villa a great place for functions and parties, or a fabulous residence for a family holiday – with the practical advantage of having a kids’ room connected to the master bedroom. It’s suitable for most age groups, although some seniors may struggle with the stone steps that lead down to the guest bedrooms and garden (there’s no hand rail).  

We found the cook and maid to be very pleasant and professional – both speak good English. Although they live out, the cook’s hours are flexible; if you want her to stay late simply pay her overtime at her reasonable hourly rate. There is no suggestion menu but the chef is pretty capable of cooking anything from Indonesian cuisine to sandwiches, burgers and pasta and will buy the ingredients required (shopping done at no extra charge apart from a minimal amount to cover petrol ) and bring you receipts. .          

The villa has a great atmosphere at night, with its romantically floodlit garden and swimming pool. During the day the double lounger in the shade of the bale at the end of the pool was a favourite spot to relax and be served drinks in between time spent on the sun loungers around the pool working on our tans.

Villa Putih Semer

Villa Putih Semer

Indonesia » Bali » Greater Seminyak » Umalas-Kerobokan

What we loved about Villa Putih Semer were the gorgeously chic interiors, which are of the ilk that you would expect to find featured in a classy interior design magazine. The owners are passionate about food, wine, music and books, and have made this the concept of their home. The cook showcased her skills by preparing her specialty, seafood curry, which proved to be fantastic. This sophisticated villa is a rural oasis on the edge of town, where we were able to totally relax and unwind within a beautiful, natural setting with a sneaky rice field view fringed by a small river, jungle vegetation and a bamboo thicket. The villa is so peaceful, so quiet, and so private. The car and driver (included in villa rate) is a great bonus, but we found it very hard to leave the premises. There are also some simple spas in the neighbourhood but, again, for those not wanting to venture out, staff can easily arrange for massages and spa treatments administered by professional therapists (on guest account) – to be carried out on the villa’s own massage bed.

Villa Reina

Villa Reina

Indonesia » Bali » Greater Seminyak » Umalas-Kerobokan

We enjoyed our time at Villa Reina just chilling beside the pool and absorbing the lush garden surroundings, and we loved the incredibly private atmosphere and the convivial design of the huge living room. Despite the villa’s dusky black and purple decor, its open layout allowed the light to pour in, and in the bedrooms, these contemporary shades were softened by woollen crochet bedspreads, matching cushions and long white curtains. The ensuite bathrooms, even with their glamorous silver sinks, felt beautifully natural and Balinese.

The villa would make a wonderful hideaway for sunseeking groups of friends (as long as fights don’t break out over who gets the master suite!), and it’s a particularly good set up for a family with a couple of older kids. The master suite has a particularly great bathroom, and pamperpusses will adore the oversized moulded stone tub that’s placed just beside sliding doors onto a river-view terrace. This bathroom also makes a great spot for enjoying a massage, and a quick phone call to BaliEpicure is all that’s needed for masseurs to head your way, massage table in tow. We tried it and loved every second – it was all so easy to arrange.

The villa comes with a husband and wife staff team who look after the house and garden, as well as a night security guard. The first breakfast is included in the rate, and after this all other meals are costed according to the price of the groceries. The maid can prepare western breakfasts and simple Indonesian cuisine for lunch and dinner, and she can do the shopping on your behalf if you furnish her with some cash and a list. She works until 5pm and prepared dinner for us before she left for the day. We liked this system as it gave us plenty of privacy in the house in the evening. The kitchen is also well equipped for self-caterers, and a selection of menus (including BaliEpicure) are available for home delivery.

Rumah Lotus

Rumah Lotus

Indonesia » Bali » Ubud

Arriving at Villa Rumah Lotus at night, we immediately eased into its sense of space and peacefulness. There wasn’t a single light on the horizon to suggest another living being nearby, though we were soothed by the sound of the gamelan wafting in the breeze from the village of Kelusa out of sight across the valley.

Emerging from a blissful night’s sleep in our supremely comfortable four-poster bed the next morning, we were delighted to discover the breathtaking views ... nothing but rice fields and, distant mountains! After an excellent breakfast, we enjoyed lazing by the large pool, glimpsing the occasional farmer tending his crop and trying not to feel guilty as we reclined in the balé, waited on hand and foot. Wayan the villa manager was charming and made sure we were well looked after; he speaks several languages (English, French, Japanese among them), is very knowledgeable about the area, and attentive to small details. We appreciated the Nespresso coffee machine and choice of Twinings teas offered during the day, as well as thoughtful extras like kimonos and slippers in the bedroom.

We felt we were far from the madding crowd and yet, if we wanted the bright(er) lights, we could be in Ubud within 20 minutes! And though it was tempting to try out the many restaurants in Bali’s culture capital – which include Mozaic, voted Asia’s top restaurant – Yanti’s home cooking was enough to keep us from straying far; she prepared a beautiful seafood barbecue in the evening. And it helps that the villa wine list is extensive, courtesy of another notable Ubud restaurant, Bridges.
