Beach In Ten Villas

If being near the sea is a holiday ‘must have’, but walking into your bedroom with sand between your toes isn’t, these villas are less than 10 minutes drive from the beach - many within the soothing sound of the surf. (If you have to be right on the sand then try our Beachfront villas.)

Rumah Campur

Rumah Campur

Indonesia » Bali » Canggu area » Seseh-Tanah Lot

Much of Bali's appeal comes from the simple way of life and Rumah Campur allows you to fully appreciate this without sacrificing too many comforts. We quickly slipped into a relaxed routine, dividing time between the pool and a good book, bathing in sunshine and birdsong and savouring the cook's tasty local dishes. The villa is as much a romantic retreat as it is a family one: strolling down to the beach to watch sunset, then returning for a quiet dinner under the stars would certainly set the scene perfectly for any marriage proposal. Mornings are ushered in with dove calls and if you can drag yourself from slumber at sunrise and open the blinds, the backdrop of dappled green will wake even the most jaded soul with a smile. Children have plenty to keep them occupied between the pool, garden and watching DVDs in the den. The owners actually lived in the house for a year with their kids and made modifications to suit - like the mezzanine sleeping deck in the main bedroom. If younger guests do get restless, you can always nip to the site office, which is open all day and manned by friendly, helpful staff, and ask them to book you for a horse ride at the nearby stables, call a taxi to take you to the beach at Canggu (8km), or even to go shopping in Seminyak (15km). Staying in a village brings you into close contact with Bali's rich, local culture: there are ceremonies and offerings at the nearby temples almost daily. We were there during Nyepi, the Balinese New Year festival, and ideally placed to witness the famous, hand crafted Ogoh-Ogoh demons being paraded through the country lanes. On the day following the parades, no-one is allowed to venture out of their homes and only candles can be burned for light at night. At Rumah Campur, rather than being a drag, this only added to what was already a supremely peaceful and authentic Balinese experience.

Villa Champuhan

Villa Champuhan

Indonesia » Bali » Canggu area » Seseh-Tanah Lot

There is nothing like the hum of the rainforest and the rush of flowing water to lull you into a state of utter serenity, and our stay at Villa Champuhan left us glowing with wellbeing. We loved the raw beauty of the tropical setting, enjoyed from the comfort of a modern, thoughtfully designed living space; taking a rain shower on the private deck above the river in the first master bedroom was sheer bliss! During the day the sliding glass doors were wide open, creating a sense of open-plan living, but were conveniently shut at night time to keep out any lingering tropical bugs. The villa was so big that it was like having a mini resort all to ourselves, and our explorations revealed plenty of spaces to nestle in privacy or mingle in comfort. Staff seemed a little shy, (the villa had only just opened when we visited in February 2012), but the warmth and kindness we experienced was genuine and the service discreet, just the way we like it! On site manager, Gun,proved to be a wealth of knowledge on the area, while Dewi cooked us up a great Balinese curry. Lazy afternoons filled with flittering butterflies were spent lounging in the sun-drenched pool overlooking the river – which was so wide that we never felt encroached upon by the surrounding rainforest. Huge daybeds and couches provided ample comfort, and even the dining chairs were soft and plump. Lounging aside there was lots to keep us busy, with river banks and gardens to discover, (some of the gardens slope steeply to the river, so young children will need to be kept an eye on) and the charms of rural Bali on our doorstep. The villa was such a peaceful sanctuary that we didn’t feel overly compelled to leave, but we liked having a complimentary driver on hand, just in case.

Villa Da Vinci

Villa Da Vinci

Indonesia » Bali » Canggu area » Canggu

With its inspired design and intelligent space planning, Villa Da Vinci is a fantastic holiday villa for two families who want to be together yet have their own space, or for a group of friends who want to keep Seminyak at arm’s length while being only a hop and skip away (15 minutes’ drive) for night-time forays. We were impressed that the two main floors each had a master and second bedroom as well as their own large air-conditioned living and dining area with well equipped kitchens. And there’s an outrageous amount of communal living space With five dining tables – yes, that’s five – the hardest decision is where to eat! The huge rooftop terrace is a fabulous place for sunset cocktails, a barbecue dinner or even a drinks party. And let’s not forget the poolside bale where you can sprawl on a super-sized scarlet mattress or sink into the party-size jacuzzi; it’s a pretty cool place post-sundown too, with lights that change colour and illuminate the night. In fact, it’s so well designed that we didn’t even notice the lack of garden (which is little more than a wide palm-filled border for the huge swimming pool). But with so many outdoor terraces to choose from, we didn’t miss it!

The Dutch House

The Dutch House

Sri Lanka » South Coast » Galle

A favourite with visiting celebs – Sting once stayed here – the Dutch House manages to be both majestic and homely at the same time. It’s a true refuge, not only because of its large garden and hilltop location, but also because of the discreet, warm nature of the staff who keep the house so perfectly in order. Attention to detail – from the banana leaf-wrapped soaps in the bathrooms to sun hats and wicker bags in the suites – is an obvious source of pride. The house’s serene location made it hard to believe that we were staying in Galle. Everything is within walking distance, though three-wheelers are recommended to transport you up the steep hill back to the house! The large garden has plenty of outside seating (we loved the double lounger on the veranda) and was looking particularly lush on our recent return visit. The management told us that more and more weddings are being hosted at the house (for up to 200 people). Although the staff are very capable, the management team work with an experienced local events company for larger affairs. The wonderful vintage Rover parked outside the front door is an atmospheric companion to the house, and although this particular model is not roadworthy, vintage car hire can be organised for a colonial-style tour of town. Note that there are no TVs or DVDs (instead, hundred of books) but there are CD players – one in each suite. Whilst breakfast, lunch and snacks are served at The Dutch House, dinner is at sister property the Sun House (boutique seven-room hotel) just across the road. Here, three-course set dinners are served, with menus changing nightly. Guests can request to dine privately at ‘home’ on occasion, but we felt that although the food is unquestionably good at the Sun House, the Dutch House is a slightly let down by the fact that it doesn’t have its own private full-time chef.

Eden Villas - 3BR Atma (Front Side Villa 3)

Eden Villas - 3BR Atma (Front Side Villa 3)

Indonesia » Bali » Greater Seminyak » Umalas-Kerobokan

If you are into eclectic decor, vibrant artwork and bold bright colour schemes, Eden Villas might not be for you, but if you like simplicity, style and minimalist design you will be enthralled. The all-white design is ambitious but most people will at least be impressed at how successfully this concept has been executed. All of the bedrooms at all of the Eden Villas are pretty much the same; the only variation is in size, aspect and view, with some of them having balconies. This means that you’ll have no reason to argue over who gets which room, but the lack of individuality makes them feel a little bit like hotel rooms. We stayed at Eden Villas when the complex had only just opened and even at these early stages we could see that the all-white décor was going to be a challenge in terms of maintenance, but there is a huge team of staff looking after the whole complex. We were struck by the professional management and the dedicated reception office. The staff are allocated to specific villas, which ensures personal service.
