Villa Luwih

Villa Luwih

Indonesia » Bali » Canggu area » Canggu

With a double-pool cascade among its many splendours, Villa LuWih is one of the most welcoming and beautiful villas we’ve escaped to in a long while.  Arriving late at night in a slightly dishevelled state, we were quickly restored to a relaxed frame of mind after being met by LuWih’s fresh-faced, smiling team who had prepared our airport transfer service, rooms and snacks exactly as we’d arranged in advance.  The sights and sounds of the night also provide a restorative ambiance, with the villa’s top-floor pool trickling into the big pool below, its soothing lighting and the whooshing symphony of the sea beyond.

After a peaceful sleep in our canopied beds, we awoke and stepped out into a bedazzling scene.  The sparkling green landscape Bali is famous for was in full view all around us, and if we looked further in the distance we could see a serpent’s tail of movement in the sea – a group of surfers riding the waves.

With bedrooms spread evenly over the three levels and a mix of king- and twin-bedded rooms, a group of couples or extended families will find it easy to organise themselves.  Those wanting more seclusion may find the two main-floor bedrooms a bit lacking in privacy, with the doors opening out to the dining and living areas.  But this is a minor quibble, since with their own ensuite bathrooms complete with double bathtubs it’s easy enough to leave the world behind once the doors are slid shut and the curtains drawn.  And they’re both just a quick hop from the big pool.

Now, about these pools … Staying at a hotel with two pools is always impressive, but staying at a private villa with two pools is truly an indulgent delight.  It was a first for us, and we had no excuses for not doing our daily laps.  The shallow section for kids in the larger pool is a thoughtful touch, too.  

With so many staff here, our only concern before arrival was having too many people around!  We were well taken care of, certainly, but never felt overwhelmed or over-serviced during our stay – they seem to have the balance of attention and discretion just right. Being pampered to the hilt is easy to get accustomed to.  LuWih, by the way, means “big” and “luxurious”. Leaving the villa was traumatic.

Majapahit Beach - Villa Maya

Majapahit Beach - Villa Maya

Indonesia » Bali » East Coast » Sanur-Ketewel

We loved Villa Maya, primarily for location, location, location.  Majapahit is wonderfully isolated and private – in fact it can feel like you’re the only person on the island.  Combine this with regular doses of fresh sea spray and breezes and it’s a great place for clearing the mind.  With this in, well, mind, it’s worth paying that bit extra for the absolute seafront Villas Maya and Samudra.  The two garden villas behind (Nataraja and Raj), just don’t offer quite the same location value.

While Majapahit Villas may not be prime position for restaurants and nightlife (with a team of chefs producing gourmet cuisine from Majapahit's professional kitchen, who needs restaurants?), they offer some unique guest benefits, including a private boat for sight-seeing, fishing and snorkelling trips, and Villa Maya has its very own temple which makes a wonderfully Balinese setting for a special ceremony.  Some of Bali's best surf beaches (especially during the East Coast Season – November to May) are within an easy drive, as are the fascinating traditional craft villages of Mas, Sukawati, Batubulan and Batuan, as well as Ketewel and Saba which are both renowned for their elegant Legong dance performances.

Aside from location, Villa Maya and co are really just comfortable, ‘liveable’ holiday venues. Let’s call it ‘luxury for beginners’.  The staff are genuinely warm and helpful, if a touch over-eager (they tend to hover unless you are quite clear about being left alone); the in-villa chef is quite a dab hand in the kitchen (best spaghetti bolognaise we’ve had on the island to date); and the facilities/amenities are all thought of – including an excellent stock of the latest release DVDs).

It may not be the most swish accommodation on the island, but its understated luxury feels ‘homey’, the type of place that finds you thinking, ‘I could live here.’

Majapahit Beach - Villa Nataraja

Majapahit Beach - Villa Nataraja

Indonesia » Bali » East Coast » Sanur-Ketewel

We really enjoyed Villa Nataraja (and its adjacent twin Villa Raj); it had a very intimate friendly ambiance and exuded a warm, comfortable, lived in feel.  Although the villa is not old, and is very well maintained, we found, on our recent re-visit, that it had lost some of its former lustre and was beginning to look a bit tired.  This isn’t really anyone’s fault; it’s just that being so close to the beach means constant upgrading and maintenance.  For instance, we wondered why the TVs in the bedrooms hadn’t been upgraded with flat-screen models and the manager explained that the new models they bought were affected by the sea air and keep going wrong, whereas the older style TVs proved to be more reliable!

The villa is particularly suitable people looking for get-away-from-it-all peace and quiet and is some distance from restaurants and nightlife.  However, the staff are very professional indeed and the food that comes out of the kitchen is excellent, so there's little need to go out.  The walled garden is very private and dominated by a great pool; the outside options (two balés and the sun loungers) were really pleasant, and being able to enjoy a jacuzzi in your own lounge has a certain seductive appeal.  It’s good to have the beach nearby, and the beach-side sundeck is handy for keeping an eye on the kids.  The rooms in the villa are well kitted out with huge beds and bathrooms. If you are looking for a small step up, consider paying a bit extra for Villa Maya, Majapahit’s absolute beachfront rental property.

Villa Malaathina

Villa Malaathina

Indonesia » Bali » Greater Seminyak » Umalas-Kerobokan

With its palatial proportions and decadent style, it’s tempting to say that we felt like royalty staying at Malaathina, but the villa is so contemporary that the term seems a little inappropriate and old-fashioned. Perhaps ‘movie stars’ is closer to the mark! We stayed alone and cheerfully lapped up the luxury, but were rather tempted to invite some friends along, because this is really a villa that deserves to be shared. With so much space and such a glamorous setting it simply begs for celebrations and events, and the atmospheric Javanese rock garden looked like an idyllic spot for a wedding ceremony.

I could easily imagine joining a high-end retreat here too – the yoga pavilion was a lovely space, and very well equipped (one of the owners is a yoga teacher – so no surprise there,) and the overall vibe, with the rice-paddy views and myriad terraces and gardens is wonderfully serene. We didn’t have a chance to enjoy the teppanyaki grill, but what a fabulous idea. When we return with a big group of friends that will be top of our list!

Malaiwana - Duplex (B2)

Malaiwana - Duplex (B2)

Thailand » Phuket » Nai Thon

Vivid tropical skies, fiery sunsets and crystal-blue seas … Nai Thon Beach is a truly idyllic place, and viewed from our private poolside within Malaiwana Duplex it looks even more spectacular.  We quickly relaxed and eased into the cool, subtle interior of the Duplex, which forms a calming contrast to the colourful tropical surrounds.  Though the Duplex is found within a three-unit, three-storey residence we enjoyed complete peace and privacy here and neither heard nor saw any of our neighbours. The 15-metre pool is gorgeous.

The Duplex is the perfect place for what we call a full-spectrum holiday: enjoying five-star comfort and service while having the simple, natural pleasures of a tropical island at our doorstep.  Having an early-morning swim in the pool, then a decadent breakfast served in style and total privacy on the terrace.  Later on, a stroll along the sand and a snack of grilled chicken on a skewer from a beachside food vendor.  Then back up to the Duplex in time for sunset cocktails and an elaborate dinner of rich Thai curries, spicy whole fish and stir-fried veggies, all planned the day before with our chef.  Finally to bed, where the master suite offers a soft, sumptuous embrace and the promise of more fabulous sea views, just a curtain-peek away upon waking up tomorrow.
