Gastronomic Delights Villas

Food, glorious food! Hot sausage and mustard! Cold Jelly and custard! Perhaps not quite, but these villas have been specially selected for their exceptional chef, marvellous menus, cookery courses or other culinary specialties. No Oliver, or Olivia for that matter, will be going hungry here.

Inasia

Inasia

Thailand » Koh Samui » Lipa Noi

Although there were only four of us (and two kids) staying at villa Inasia, we were struck by the benefits the villa had to offer to larger groups of friends and extended families. Even when full, everyone could have their own space and privacy but still gather socially around one of the pools or in one of the many living and dining areas. Having the beach so close kept the kids entertained and the flawless sunsets were a major plus come cocktail hour. The villa's attentive staff made sure we were well taken care of and the chef's delicious Thai food is definitely worth taking a journey through the menu for. Although the architecture is quite modern and clinical, the setting more than compensates in terms of tropical atmosphere. In many ways Inasia is a classic example of the appeal of a private villa over a hotel, offering everything you would expect from the latter, but with the added bonus of exclusivity.

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.

Jagaditha

Jagaditha

Indonesia » Bali » Canggu area » Seseh-Tanah Lot

Enticing, uncomplicated and restorative; this is exactly how a beach property should be. The aesthetics of Jagaditha’s build, especially the gorgeous landscaping, felt perfectly in tune with the surroundings without cluttering or detracting from the serenity that this location brings. I loved how each bedroom enjoyed different outlooks that were equally appealing; the lily pond lapping onto three of the ground floor bedrooms was enchanting. Children especially will find lots to interest them here as there were frogs, dragonflies and fish galore, plus a flat lawn for letting off steam. A second dining area with shade-giving parasols to one side of the garden comes highly recommended for daytime dining as it beautifully overlooks the swimming pool, garden and sea and feels refreshingly informal. All outside areas come with Bose amplified sound that you can connect to your own iPod. The gym comes only with a rowing machine and a Power Plate, but if you’re feeling enthusiastic Jagaditha’s guests can use the fitness centre in the nearby Canggu Club in addition to the tennis courts, creche, restaurants and swimming pools. There’s a big staff team at Jagaditha and they do a great job. Fusion cuisine is on the menu and the chef comes recommended; we really enjoyed all of our meals.

Villa Jamalu

Villa Jamalu

Indonesia » Bali » Jimbaran - Bukit » Jimbaran

This villa rocks! We loved our stay here – one night wasn’t enough time to sample all the facilities. There really is something for everyone: a gym; yoga space; massage room; pool lounge; PlayStation and great stereo systems and cinemas throughout. There are also plenty of spots to relax and sunbathe by the fabulously deep saltwater pool (I had to equalize when diving to the bottom of the deep end!), or snuggle up with a good book and enjoy the ocean view.

The owners of this villa obviously have kids – we know that from the name but also because this is one of the best-equipped villas for children we have seen. Apart from the PlayStation 3 there are numerous games and toys to keep them entertained – even children-sized pool cues! And a safety fence can be erected around the pool to give parents peace of mind and save them from having to double as lifeguards. And with three home cinemas, plus three more TV’s there’s never any fights for the remote!

Jamalu works for all ages, and as well as making a great family holiday villa it’s a wicked party pad; the Bose stereo system links to speakers in all the living areas and outdoor speakers by the pool and on the first floor terrace. The villa manager has been with the villa since the start, and the chef is very accomplished.

This contemporary property may not be suit those looking for a traditional Balinese experience. However all the interiors are furnished very tastefully in the best quality materials and fabrics creating a very comfortable environment.

Kaba Kaba Estate

Kaba Kaba Estate

Indonesia » Bali » Tabanan

We’ve been lucky enough to visit a lot of beautiful villas in our time, but Kaba Kaba Estate exceeded all expectations of comfort, luxuriousness, good taste and space.  There’s so much to do on the estate itself that its out-of-town location is not an issue.  Everything has been thought of, from tennis, foosball, air hockey and all the major electronic game consoles, through to a library, gym and even a croquet lawn.  If only we’d had more time!  As it was, the pools, the spa and the spectacular home cinema were more than enough to relax and entertain us.
    
The staff were just the right mix of professional and friendly, and the chef is a consummate pro, delighting us with everything he presented.  Although there is a selection menu, we highly suggest that you just ‘go blind’ (like we did) and let the chef and his team surprise you with their magic.  Our simple, three-course Balinese dinner was off-the-charts delicious.

Do go for an early morning wander through the rice fields.  The locals are very friendly and the experience will be something the regular tour guides can’t give you.  The wide-open spaces are awe inspiring.
