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 Valentine

Villa Valentine

Indonesia » Bali » Canggu area » Canggu

As well as being exceptionally comfortable, Villa Valentine has a sense of light and space that you could only dream of in Seminyak; yet it’s close enough to that most happening of Balinese centres to make popping in for a meal or shopping trip a piece of cake. We spent a lot of time in the poolside pavilion which is the ideal chill zone - shady during the day and peaceful in the evenings, and is very well set up with lamps, stereo, and even a bar fridge. It’s also one of the best places to appreciate the sprawling gardens, which are park-like in scope and design. We thought the quirky furnishings were fun, especially the zebra-print chaise longue and the glitter balls, while the dining room with its art deco-style chandelier and fabulous feature mirror just begs for interesting dinner parties. One of the things we like most about Villa Valentine is that everything is so soft, fluffy and enveloping, from the daybeds to the Thai cushions to the plush black towels. We also liked the great choice of restaurants within walking distance, from cheap and cheerful warungs, to cafes like Butter (good for breakfast treats) and Canggu Plaza with pizza, Japanese food and Brazilian barbecue.

Villa Jempiring

Villa Jempiring

Indonesia » Bali » Greater Seminyak » Seminyak

Villa Jempiring must be in the running for having one of the coolest swimming pool designs on the island. Not only does it slope gradually down into the deep but the shallow bits are painted and textured the colour and feel of real sand! Surround that with big green tropical plants under a big blue tropical sky and you can be forgiven for getting lost in a world of tropical island castaways. Even the daybeds are semi-submerged upon ‘the shore’ and, best of all, the tide never goes out. The owners have used recycled hardwood throughout that draws heavily on the indigenous themes of Eastern Indonesian that adds even more to the eclectic and wild experience. We especially enjoyed the positioning of the three upstairs bedrooms, which are bathed in sunshine with massive wraparound decks making a perfect spot for sun lovers. And the guest bedroom in the garden would be a perfect spot to put the in-laws or the teenagers. You also can’t ask for a better location if the beach or party scene is your raison d’etre.

Villa Kirana

Villa Kirana

Indonesia » Bali » Ubud

If you are into flat roofs and minimalist, modern, white-walled design, this is probably not the villa for you. But if you love a bit of bold colour and history, colonial architecture, romantic hide-and-seek gardens, antiques and art, you will love Villa Kirana. This is the realisation of a dream, a real home, designed to accommodate and fulfil the needs of a Western family who take holidays in Bali. The villa, the garden and the interiors was designed by the internationally-acclaimed garden architect, Made Wijaya (known for his flamboyant, eclectic taste) and his team. It has been furnished with love, and showcases a delightful medley of fine art collected by the owners. We found it fascinating to wander through the rooms because we kept noticing artefacts or decorations that we hadn’t seen before. This is a place to explore and get lost in; every room is different, and there is so much space in the gardens, it’s very easy to escape from your companions.

Villa Melati

Villa Melati

Indonesia » Bali » Ubud

How very different these Sayan Ridge villas are from those in the south of Bali. A variable sky, cooler temperatures, loads of greenery and the sounds of the river, with views to stop the heart. It is like being in the heart of the jungle, and we loved it!

Villa Melati oozes traditional style and, with only three bedrooms sharing its large amount of space and gardens, there is never a danger of treading on anybody’s toes. Spend some time sitting in the balé lookout pavilion just down from the main house: stone steps lead you to an authentic bamboo, thatch and wood structure that looks out through the coconut and frangipani down to the working rice fields 100m below alongside the banks of the swiftly flowing Ayung River. Or spread a blanket on the lawn on the edge of the cliff with a good book and someone special and let the world float by. The rushing waters, birdsong and the chirps of insects and frogs will be all that you will hear, plus occasional hoots of laughter from rafters as they ride the rapids on the river below. As well as being a private home, Villa Melati is privately managed, so don’t expect the slick professional butler service that you might get in some of the bigger villas around the island. Instead, the staff here are warm, friendly, willing and charming, and Dayu is a great cook. We also made friends with Nona, the resident golden retriever, she’s gentle and very friendly, but if you’re not into dogs, the staff will keep her well out of your way.

Villa Samaki

Villa Samaki

Indonesia » Bali » Ubud

As we leave the buzz of downtown Ubud and wind our way up along Jalan Suweta, I feel sure that Villa Samaki will provide us with a glimpse of real Ubud life, and I am not disappointed. Small pockets open up between the silk dress shops, tailors and small boutique hotels to reveal glimpses of the rice terraces that have made Ubud famous.

After a charming tour of the villa with Made (pronounced mah-day), the villa manager, we choose the lovely stand-alone master suite as our home-away-from-home for the evening. We didn’t have the luck of good weather during our stay, and it was a shame not to be able to fully enjoy the gorgeous infinity pool or explore the hillside as much as we would have liked, but it was wet season (December) so we shouldn’t have expected too much, and the covered dining balé by to the pool provided a protected outdoor spot to experience the grandeur of the river valley before us. White cranes would glide by at eye level and iridescent butterflies pollinated the tropical flowers around us.

In a perfect world, I would have taken full advantage of Made’s offer to have a masseuse scooter up from Ubud for a soothing massage in the pool balé, but because of the damp weather, a cup of coffee and a good movie up in the media room was a greater temptation. The comfortable couch here provided the perfect spot to while away a rainy day.

Villa Tao

Villa Tao

Indonesia » Bali » Tabanan

After the long and busy drive from Seminyak we were super-excited to arrive at Villa Tao. As we sipped our welcome drinks and gazed out at the ocean, the glistening black-sand beach and the waves of Balian surf break just a short stroll down the grassy hill, we felt we had landed in paradise. And we loved the rooftop garden with its 360-degree views of the mountains and the beach. Looking down on the cows roaming the pastures, fisherman catching their dinner and the waves rolling in, we got a very real sense of the simple lifestyle that has attracted so many visitors to Bali’s shores.

At sunset we went to check out some of the local bars and eateries at Balian beach on the other side of the river. A very laidback surfer/backpacker crowd was hanging out in the beachside bungalows. It was obvious that the word was out that this was the place to be if you want to escape the hectic Kuta scene.

The staff were pleasant, and Komang the chef is on hand to cook up a wide variety of home-style meals according to a priced a la carte menu.Just be sure to give the villa a heads-up for any special dietary requirements as there are no western style supermarkets close by.

The villa itself had heaps of space and the gladak houses were definite standout features, but we felt the downstairs concrete bedrooms lacked a bit of soul. The villa is quite new (we visited in November 2011) and there were a few things missing – mosquito nets and blinds on the bathroom windows – but overall it was very well equipped.
