Villa 1880

Villa 1880

Indonesia » Bali » Greater Seminyak » Seminyak

Wow. Wow. WOWWWWWWW. Villa 1880 took my breath away the moment I arrived — no mean feat for a seasoned and perhaps super-critical reviewer of luxury villas. What exquisite taste the owners must possess, to have created such an appealing vacation home … and filled it with such covetable furniture and curios.  This is surely a dream villa for anyone who appreciates inspiring design.

We loved the unique blend of old and new — how the 138-year old plantation house sat so comfortably (and seamlessly) between the contemporary buildings. And I admit swooning over the uber-photogenic interiors filled with achingly chic designer furniture sitting on extraordinary brass inlaid flooring. The media room was fabulously flamboyant with sprawl-inducive sofas covered in pink velvet, a cocktail cabinet …and whatever prompted them to think of a stuffed peacock?  Magic was in every detail — for example, our welcome drink was served in a hollowed-out pineapple, complete with bamboo straw, and breakfast included home-made strawberry jam, marmalade, and passion fruit preserve. And how sweet that half of the vanity in the kids’ bunkroom bathroom was set lower so little ones could reach the basin! (Though we were kid-free on our visit, we could imagine them cavorting around in the bunk room with glee).

But what made our experience truly special was the staff. On a tropical island awash with villas boasting well-trained staff, Villa 1880’s raises the bar. Gede the manager was so charming and helpful – and the same went for the butlers we met… even the gardener was chatty. And we cannot enthuse enough about Chef Adi — a rare find, passionate about food and with an inventive mind. The meals we had at Villa 1880 were absolutely superb — oh for another of his home-made panacottas! Ria the spa therapist was also excellent, with a decade working at Shiva Som in the Maldives….whatever you do, don’t leave without having at least one massage with her in the villa’s beautiful spa room.

Villa Adasa

Villa Adasa

Indonesia » Bali » Greater Seminyak » 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 Asta

Villa Asta

Indonesia » Bali » Greater Seminyak » Seminyak

Of all the villas we’ve reviewed in Bali, Villa Asta is tops for families and kids. Never have we seen a villa so well set up for children’s entertainment, and with separate zones so that the adults (and kids) can escape from one another. It is no surprise that it's often booked for months in advance and guests return each year. The Guy Morgan-designed villa is full of common sense but without skimping on the luxury. In the three-bedroom pavilion, many guests will appreciate the flexibility of the bed configurations. Do note that whilst we rave about Villa Asta for families – these bedrooms are excellent for adults too, so the villa would work well for groups. The private plunge pools beside the master bedrooms’ pavilion are a gorgeous plus. Overall we found the villa to be a very bubbly and happy place, from the excellent staff who served us a wonderful barbecue during our inspection, down to the super friendly (and very fat!) koi fish, which are a great source of entertainment and fun to feed. What is also special about Villa Asta is the lovely stonework and thatch, which left us in no doubt that we were in Bali. When we revisited the property recently, we found that it has been immaculately maintained, with some new upholstered furnishings, a new marble floor, and upgraded facilities such as flat-screen TVs, computer and printer for guest use, and the addition of four bicycles.

Villa Atas Ombak

Villa Atas Ombak

Indonesia » Bali » Greater Seminyak » Seminyak

We loved Villa Atas Ombak. It’s big – nay grand – and majestic with a location that just can’t be found for love nor money these days. On arrival, we had to pinch ourselves to make sure we weren’t dreaming. This is the kind of place where you really come to relax and do nothing. And when we say ‘do nothing’ we mean just that, especially with the beach being on the front doorstep.

In the competitive world of luxury rental villas, it is often the staff that really makes a difference, and at Villa Atas Ombak they are definitely ‘on the ball’. Before we even knew we were thirsty, the housekeeper was strolling out to the lawn to see what we wanted to drink.

Should you feel like exploring beyond the villa grounds (and believe us, you may not!) there is a handful of local restaurants just a few hundred metres up the beach which make for an unpretentious, casual lunch or sunset drinks – so casual you don’t even need to change out of your swimmers. We didn’t! For guests who like to jog or amble along the sand, the distance to Kuta is a good challenge (with a taxi back of course).

Villa Cendrawasih

Villa Cendrawasih

Indonesia » Bali » Greater Seminyak » Seminyak

This is a very classy contemporary-styled villa that truly represents luxurious modern Bali living, and fits perfectly into its fashionable neighbourhood. Villa Cendrawasih was only three months old at the time of our visit (August 2013) and we were very impressed by the high quality of its fixtures, fittings and furnishings. It’s a 900m walk from Jalan Petitenget’s shops and restaurants but only 400m from the beach. We liked the fact that the huge living and dining room could either be open to the pool and garden or closed off and air-conditioned, something that many villas don’t offer their guests: while visitors from colder lands might relish Bali’s balmy nights, those less enthused by an equatorial climate may not, so it’s nice to have the option.

We can recommend heading down to the beach (along the secret passageway) for sunset drinks – a Bali ritual for residents and visitors alike. Not only is it very relaxing but it’s also a great way to meet and have a chat with fellow holidaymakers.

Des Indes I

Des Indes I

Indonesia » Bali » Greater Seminyak » Seminyak

Our 2017 re-inspection of Villa Des Indes I revealed an immaculate, eclectic home that has been lovingly furnished by its owners to celebrate the rich heritage of Indonesia through a fine collection of antiques, artefacts, curios, local artwork, colonial prints and classic sculptures. The villa is a true delight, enhanced by its central location but very quiet and private feel. Once inside you are truly in your own world and, given the very gracious staff, a wonderfully enjoyable one at that. The chef prepared an excellent and beautifully presented meal during our stay – the Dory dish and ikan lilit (fish satay) were delicious; so it’s easy to imagine a full-blown dinner party in this gorgeous setting, illuminated by scores of flickering candles. Des Indes I will delight families and groups who appreciate being surrounded by a sense of history alongside the villa’s many contemporary luxuries.

In our opinion, it is still one of the most unique East-meets-West, old-meets-new villas in Bali.

Villa Issi

Villa Issi

Indonesia » Bali » Greater Seminyak » Seminyak

It was a real privilege to stay at Villa Issi, this is a gorgeous, funky, fancy pad where no expense has been spared. It’s all about space, ultra-modern architecture, more space, high-technology and super comfortable furnishings, ranging from leather chairs to beanbag-sun-loungers. The only antiquated elements at the villa are the 200-year-old frangipani trees. Beautiful! Everywhere there are walls-of-glass that open to the balmy Bali breezes. The elevated deck that bridges the swimming pool is a fabulous feature and the kitchen is a dream, we’d never before seen such a state-of-the art fridge! In fact, there are surprises at every twist and turn, including lots of places to escape to and be on your own. This is a really exciting villa to stay in.

Kalimaya I

Kalimaya I

Indonesia » Bali » Greater Seminyak » Seminyak

Wow! Villa Kalimaya I was a surprise from the moment we opened the gilded Balinese doors and stepped into its garden. Yes, garden!  Not a handkerchief-sized patch eaten up by a pool, as is the case in so many villas in densely built Seminyak, but a huge expanse of lawn edged with travellers palms, hibiscus and frangipani trees – big enough to lose three guest bedroom pavilions which were completely camouflaged from view!  

While there are two huge living rooms and an indoor dining room within the main house, we spent most of our time idling on over-sized cushions in the large poolside pavilion, and chose to take our meals alfresco. Speaking of meals, the cook whipped up a delicious Singapore laksa for us – apparently a doddle for him as he regularly prepares gourmet dinner parties for 20; no wonder most guests forego the pleasures of the many fine restaurants within an easy walk of the villa in favour of his home cooking.

The cook, butlers and housekeepers – all charming and helpful – divide their time between all four Kalimaya villas set along the same quiet lane. We considered this a bonus as it means guests benefit from a professional team, but privacy is not compromised by their continued presence.

We appreciated that Kalimaya has been designed as a home – originally for entertaining her royal friends, the owner told us. Comfortable, well equipped and full of personal art and furniture collections, the place feels larger-than-life. This is the perfect villa for an extended family or groups of friends who want to be sociable and yet still be able to get away from each other; the bedrooms are large and designed for privacy, there are lots of different seating and dining areas, and we were still discovering discreet get-away-from-the-crowd hideaways right up to our departure.
