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.)

Villa Kemala

Villa Kemala

Indonesia » Bali » Canggu area » Canggu

First impressions are always important and we received quite a welcome at Villa Kemala, with canapés and passion fruit juice enjoyed on the beautiful hanging terrace. Once we had settled in we were served cappuccino, homemade cakes and excellent, buttery cookies – quite a treat after a long journey.

Only completed a month before our stay (November 2012) we were lucky enough to be amongst the first guests to enjoy the pristine, sparkling newness of Villa Kemala. Rich in details, it’s clear that an enormous amount of time, energy and thought has gone into creating this elegant and luxurious haven. No corners have been cut, fittings are the sleekest, linens are the finest, artwork is stylish, iPod docks are in every room, and artefacts have been thoughtfully placed to avoid any sense of clutter. Gorgeous furnishings include sleek mosquito nets and throws in the upstairs bedrooms, and we were impressed by the small but carefully chosen selection of books and board games.

Villa Kemala seems to have all the bases covered, a peaceful and picturesque setting not far from the beach, stunning pool area and gardens, plus a spa balé for the girls and a pool room for the boys. The staff are fabulous, and took very good care of us without intruding on our space.

Kembang Desa Estate

Kembang Desa Estate

Indonesia » Bali » Tabanan

If you’re into nightlife, shopping and eating out in fancy restaurants, then Kembang Desa Villas are not for you, but if you love the great outdoors, the sight and sound of the ocean, the mountains and rural local life, you will love them… we certainly do; they are among our favourite villas in Bali.

Returning to the villa after a long walk along the beach one evening, a delicious meal awaited us – nothing gourmet, just honest, well-prepared food. The cook produces meals from a tasty repertoire of Balinese / Indonesian / International dishes that hit the spot. We were also delighted by the villa’s collection of hundreds of digital movies – all without the evil scratch demon that can ruin the last five minutes of the most-engrossing films!

Make sure you wake up early in the morning when the air and sky are at their most calm and be rewarded with a mountain vista that will leave you speechless. We felt so privileged to stay in this magnificent location, not many visitors get to venture this far, so it really is a rare pleasure and an experience that will stay with us forever.

Kembang Desa Villas - Villa Sunset (6BR)

Kembang Desa Villas - Villa Sunset (6BR)

Indonesia » Bali » Tabanan

Of the four dwellings at Kembang Desa Villas this is the granddaddy family villa of them all and will definitely please the needs of any group, big or small. The views facing the ocean and the land are (almost) indescribably sublime with the power of the ocean to the front and the fecund bounty of the green rice bowl behind. We went for a long walk down the beach in the late afternoon and checked out temples and rock pools and a most glorious sunset.

Villa Kendra

Villa Kendra

Indonesia » Bali » Greater Seminyak » Seminyak

One of life’s simple pleasures is to drift off to sleep and wake up to the gorgeous smell of tuberose flowers wafting through the air, so we were thrilled to see that Villa Kendra had stocked every suite with a generous arrangement of these classic tropical flowers. Greeted by the staff with fresh watermelon juice and cool hand towels, we were immediately drawn to the pool deck; enjoying the sound of overflowing water against the busy backdrop of the neighbourhood. This villa is perfect for an extended family vacation: mum and dad can take the upstairs master bedroom with the kids in the connecting twin-bedded room, while grandparents, aunts, uncles, or teenagers will be more than happy with the Pool and Garden Suites down below. The kitchen is suitable for light self-catering such as drinks, snacks for the kids and easy meals that don’t require an oven, but the area really lends itself to eating out. After a lazy afternoon by the pool, we decided to go out for dinner and walked 400m to Hana, a small Japanese restaurant, where we tucked into a perfect bowl of ramen and sautéed salmon teriyaki. Then we slowly window-shopped our way to Bintang Supermarket to stock up on a few bits and pieces before heading back to the villa. After a big dose of ultra-hip Jalan Raya Seminyak, we really appreciated the lack of pretension and laid-back family ambiance at Villa Kendra. Next morning, even while we enjoyed our breakfast of poached eggs, whole wheat toast and fresh fruit besides the pool, we were already dreaming about the mezze platter from Zula, just down the street on Jalan Dhyana Pura. Our recommendation: don’t stay at Villa Kendra if you are weight-watching. With the excellent order-in service from Baliepicure and all these tempting treats on your doorstep, you just don’t stand a chance!

Villa Kinara

Villa Kinara

Indonesia » Bali » Greater Seminyak » Seminyak

Considering its heart-of-the-action location in Bali’s sophisticated Seminyak, it’s extraordinary just how serene life is at Villa Kinara. It also beggars belief that this villa is brand new (completed in 2012). Thoughtful design combines classic and timeless Indonesian architecture with twenty-first century luxury and convenience to create a truly delightful villa and one we felt very much at home in. It’s very hard NOT to relax here with a gorgeous garden to enjoy, refreshing pool to dive into and wide breezy balconies and terraces to stretch out on. Then there’s the very convivial pool table and bar area and the massive sofas to curl up on come evening time.

Not only did we admire the size of the bedrooms, but we thought them beautifully furnished and the bathrooms immaculate (two of them have indulgent semi-outdoor tubs). All rooms have plenty of private, comfortable sitting space, and the daybeds outside the upstairs bedrooms are equally inviting.

Although there’s a huge choice of places to eat and drink within easy reach of the villa, a chef is on hand to prepare a wide range of Indonesian and Western favourites for breakfast, lunch and dinner; just talk through your selection with him, or Theodora, Villa Kinara’s friendly and very capable manager, and the rest will be taken care of.

Although it wasn’t a problem during our visit, we thought that the staff quarters might be a bit close to the main living areas and could result some unwanted noise.

Villa Kipi

Villa Kipi

Indonesia » Bali » Canggu area » Canggu

We found Villa Kipi to be a modern, practical villa in an excellent close-to-the-beach location. We thought that the size of the rooms and the number of indoor and outdoor living and dining areas was delightfully generous for a four-bedroom property, and even if it was filled with a group of eight guests there would still be plenty of spots for individuals to lose themselves.

This is quite a grown-up villa – possibly best suited to a group of adults - but would also work well for a family despite not being specifically family-friendly. For example, the outdoor area features an extended timber deck around the pool in place of a lawn so even though it is large there’s not a true garden for kids to run around in.

The colonial-style furnishings are lovely; the bathrooms are stylish, light and airy, and a TV in each bedroom ensures yet more privacy for folks who want to escape from their companions. Our favourite room was the open-air lounge on the upper level. We also enjoyed our time at the beach (albeit rather a scruffy section of the beach) without hawkers, touts, or overcrowding spoiling the party. And it was just a three-minute walk back to the villa for a shower and a laze beside the pool. Brilliant! At sunset we returned to the beach for a few beers at a small and popular open-air bar.

The staff at Villa Kipi are helpful and cheery and while they aren’t the most highly trained of professionals, they know how to make your holiday fun. There is a superb selection of home-cooked delights on the suggestion menu, and breakfast is really good too, especially with the sound of the crashing surf just over the way.

Villa Kodok

Villa Kodok

Indonesia » Bali » Greater Seminyak » Seminyak

As soon as we entered Villa Kodok we felt a real sense of seclusion, serenity and privacy. And we were so impressed with the staff’s from-the-heart service. This lovely team of Balinese people stayed well out of our way but were there in an instant if we needed them. A brass bell is provided to summon them at any time.

The villa was built as a home and has been furnished with love, yet it is also stylish, practical and immaculately maintained. We were delighted to note that there is so much emphasis on children here; it’s a true family-friendly villa with every consideration given to the care, entertainment and safety of guests’ children. Even the fishpond outside the living room has a protective grill over it to deter over-curious kids. The villa has a connection with the nearby Glo Day Spa, so guests get a discount and therapists will come to the villa.

Villa Kumara

Villa Kumara

Sri Lanka » South Coast » Mirissa

Built in 2013 (and extended to add a third bedroom suite in 2015), Kumara Villa presents a contemporary Sri Lankan aesthetic. The self-contained bedroom suites ideally suit three couples or a couple of families travelling together, as there is ample space in each suite to sleep a child in an extra bed. The living pavilion is very spacious, made even more so by the bi-fold doors that seamlessly blend the indoors with the pool terrace, and share the views. We loved the guest kitchen (it’s also aptly equipped) and spent hours beside the pool watching the birds and monkeys in the trees beyond.

The staff were efficient and organised, whilst also being discreet. The maids have set times in the morning and evening for cleaning the bedrooms, and the whole villa was spotless. The food we ate was good, particularly the Sri Lankan curries and all meals (except the daily ‘Tropical’ breakfast, which is included in the rate) are charged to the guest account on a cost basis. Our only complaint was that the staff were perhaps a little too prompt with meal service, meaning that if we weren’t as prompt at getting to the table, our meals might have been cold.

It takes about 15 minutes to walk to Weligama’s eastern strands although taking a tuk-tuk to the main surfing beach or Mirissa’s pretty sands is a quicker option. There are a couple of bicycles at the villa for guest use, but these are better for exploring the quieter lanes inland.
