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.

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.

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.

Oazia Orchid

Oazia Orchid

Indonesia » Bali » Greater Seminyak » Umalas-Kerobokan

Romance is the theme here, and Villa Oazia Orchid is totally geared up for couples looking for a romantic escape combined with some wonderful (and unusual) holistic spa treatments, either in the villa’s private garden or at the on-site Oazia Spa. We loved the eclectic shabby-chic design and furnishings, the Balinese stone carvings, pots of bougainvillea, the rice terrace view from the lofty gazebo, and the billowing white curtains catching the breeze. The swimming pool is bigger than usual for a one-bedroom villa and the walled garden is totally private. An oasis indeed!

The spa is a definite (if not defining) highlight – though bookings are essential as, although villa guests get preferential treatment (and a complimentary Balinese massage each), the spa is also open to the public. Another lovely treat is the complimentary bottle of wine that awaits each group of guests.

Oazia White

Oazia White

Indonesia » Bali » Greater Seminyak » Umalas-Kerobokan

One night at Villa Oazia White (such a beautifully simple moniker) just wasn’t long enough to really get to know her. That said, we still managed an afternoon on the sunbeds, some down-time in the balé, a movie session on the wonderfully soft couches, a convivial dinner party, a massage at the spa, an indulgent alfresco bath, some decent swim time, a leisurely breakfast and a full night of sleep … but it would have been nice to spread it out over a few long luxurious days.

Everywhere you look there is something to enjoy: antique statues, beckoning sofas, towering trees, flowering shrubs, fluttering butterflies and softly billowing drapes catching the breeze. And there aren’t many villas in Bali that have a river actually running through it. Perfect.

The onsite spa goes beyond the normal offerings of massage and nail treatments by delving into the holistic realms of the mystical with Shamanic Reiki, Cranio-Sacral Therapy, Aqua Flow Therapy, Balinese Shamanic Healing and much more. It has gained a reputation as one of the best in Bali.

We had a most memorable stay at Oazia Spa Villas: meals were prompt and delicious, the cushions were deep and the spa was heaven. All in all, a veritable ‘oasis’ if you will.

Pandawas Villas

Pandawas Villas

Indonesia » Bali » Ubud

When we rolled up the final steep hill and through the entrance to Pandawas Villas, the stars were overhead and ambient lighting cast elongated shadows across the tropical foliage. Had we arrived in the Garden of Eden? We were led through a pavilion with an intricately painted ceiling tracing the story of the five Pandawas brothers from the Mahabharata (after which the estate is named), and into a huge living pavilion that must be bigger than many entire villas! We later read that this dramatic arrival has been designed to mirror the brothers’ journey through the mountains, leaving worldly desires behind in search of Lord Shiva. The setting is gorgeous, with a real sense of retreat from the hurly burly and immersion in nature’s bounty. There’s space in spades here, with beautiful gardens and lots of private corners for those who want to slip away from the other villa guests. Other than the fountains and constant hum of the cicadas and chattering staff, the only noise was the odd motorbike straining up the steep hill by the villa, emphasizing the delightful quiet the rest of the time. The swimming pool is enormous and there’s plenty space to stretch out, on the deck, or have a massage in the spa balé. Our favourite spot was the Buddy’s Bar balé which commands the highest point of the resort and looks out over emerald rice terraces edged with towering palms – a very special place visited by the famed herons from nearby Petulu village. We liked the double lounger in the bedroom – perfect for languishing with a good book and a lover. The large bed was comfortable but the bedding itself was disappointing. Having said that, other details were well thought out – the universal multi-point sockets fitted throughout the villa, for example, and the home entertainment system in each bedroom.

Pantai Lima - Villa Waringin

Pantai Lima - Villa Waringin

Indonesia » Bali » Canggu area » Canggu

We stayed at Villa Waringin on a writers' conference and all agreed there could be no finer place for a coming together of creative minds. The villa's homely ambience makes you feel immediately relaxed, while complementary facilities like pull-down projector screens, plus a team of willing, able staff remove every possible hassle, leaving you to get on with the business of the day. The same ease would definitely apply on a holiday, and we tested this theory to the full whenever there was a break in proceedings. Reclining on the terrace sofas with a choice of teas and delicious snacks (the chef does an excellent Croque Monsieur) certainly got the creative juices flowing, as did lying on the cushioned sunbeds by the pool, while some of the best ideas actually emerged during the delicious barbecue dinner on the poolside lawn (not least the notion of a second helping of fresh prawns!). When it was time to retreat to our supremely comfortable bedrooms, flat-screen TVs and iPod docks ensured no one felt over-burdened with work worries before drifting off to sleep. In the morning a fabulous breakfast spread included fresh fruit, eggs with back bacon and pain au chocolat - ample fuel for the day ahead. Although it's a shame not to be able to swim in a sea so close (there are huge breakers and dangerous rip tides), we were more than happy to gaze and gasp at the waves, sound in the knowledge that come sunset we'd be immersed in the pool, watching the sky blush to greet the evening stars.

Villa Pemutih

Villa Pemutih

Indonesia » Bali » Jimbaran - Bukit » The Bukit

It is easy to become a little blasé when it is your job to stay in paradise holiday homes and report back on the findings, but walking into the gardens of Villa Pemutih and seeing that breathtaking view was a rapturous moment, and we knew that the next 24 hours was going to be blissful.

And so it was straight to the pool and the sunloungers on the cliff’s edge with a cold drink, a good book and some sunscreen. A cleverly placed tree provides the shade, while the birds, the cicadas and the ocean provide the music. The sweet Balinese staff bought us cold drinks as the afternoon wore on, and we watched the sunset from the cliff side balé. In the evening, a delicious Balinese feast was cooked for us by the talented kitchen team. We then retired to the super-comfy studio room to blast ourselves senseless with a couple of movies on the villa’s explosive home theatre system.

When the tide is low, do make your way down the cliff to the exposed reef for a bit of beachcombing among the rock pools. The water is calm and none too deep making it a fun, and safe, option for a paddle in the sea. Kids will also love the size of the villa grounds, where they can run around to their hearts’ content, and they’ll enjoy watching the birds in the aviaries. There are numerous species of trees in the garden, including flamboyant, frangipani, coral tree, custard apple, orange flowering saraca trees, acacia, cactus, mango, teak and yellow coconut.

Villa Phinisi

Villa Phinisi

Indonesia » Bali » Greater Seminyak » Seminyak

Phinisi is a great villa in a great spot! We loved the use of the recycled boat timber, which added a unique dimension to this modern villa. It was obvious that the owner had chosen each piece very carefully.

Given its central location, the villa really is a hidden oasis. The lagoon-style pool is one of the most inviting we have seen, and lounging on the sunbeds under the traditional Balinese umbrellas or getting pampered in the massage room was the ultimate in relaxation.

With the beach, shops, bars and restaurants right at our fingertips there was no shortage of entertainment options, but having meals prepared in the privacy of the villa when we wanted and getting together to watch a movie on the projector screen in the sunken living area took a lot of beating!
