Sayang d'Amour

Sayang d'Amour

Indonesia » Bali » Greater Seminyak » Seminyak

Sayang d’Amour is a veritable palace, and can’t fail to please. If you like opulence and grandeur, the colour purple, intricate detailing, Moorish arches, palatial bedrooms, indulgent bathing facilities, an astounding collection of objets d’art, a stellar kitchen, discreet staff, and plenty of activities and games for the kids, all just a short walk from the beach and Bali’s best restaurants, then perhaps you should stop your villa search and push “book Villa Sayang d’Amour” right now.

It took us ages to tour the villa simply because there is so much visual distraction (in the best possible way). Curiosity forced us to take the long and lingering roundabout route through the main house via the kitchen, living and dining room, and office/TV room, taking in all the detailing, the furnishings and décor (including hundreds of Moroccan-styled floor tiles) before we even reached the garden. Eighty percent of the materials, furnishings and artefacts have been imported from Morocco by the French owners to recreate a private fantasy surrounded by high walls, so while it may be true that the villa doesn’t have much of a connection with Bali, it’s fun to fantasise!  

And although there is a chef on hand to work magic in that gourmet kitchen, being positioned in Petitenget means that some of the best restaurants in (dare we say) Asia are literally within easy walking distance. Having the super stylish W Retreat and Potato Head Beachclub as neighbours gives you the (again walking distance) choice to hang out with the movers and shakers and catch the beachclub vibe – should the privacy of your palace prove too much.

At the time of our visit (June 2013) the villa was still very new and the staff not quite up to the slick standard that you might expect from a property of this calibre. But it is early days, and from what we saw we expect they will achieve service of the highest level before too long.

Villa Semarapura

Villa Semarapura

Indonesia » Bali » Canggu area » Seseh-Tanah Lot

Although there’s no doubt it's a visually striking villa, Semarapura’s luxurious functionality seemed to unravel itself slowly so that the more we experienced, the more it drew us in. As we relaxed in one of the sea-view balés, swum in our (huge) private pool, sipped drinks from our own bar (sat on one of the ‘wet seats’ at sunset – wow!), enjoyed the pampering of the friendly and personable (17-strong) staff team and the comforts of our well-facilitated bedroom, we realised what a great villa it was as it appeared to cater not only excellently for group arrangements but also individuals within a group too; everything has been thought of and there are plenty of private places as well as sociable spots. The pool deck and its adjoining media room was very congenial; you can either watch a movie here ‘en famille’ or select one from the library to watch in your own room ‘à deux’, as every bedroom has a TV. Note that the bedroom TVs can only play DVDs and are not connected to cable channels. It’s no wonder that the villa is a very popular place for weddings and other special events; not only is the location idyllic, but the experience and hotel-like approach of the staff clearly shows through too. The food was good at the villa and the kitchen a delight; if we had mustered up the energy to cook for ourselves, it would have been plain sailing as the kitchen was equipped with everything that we might have needed. As it was, the villa’s suggestion menu listed a range of dishes and we only had to pay for the cost of the ingredients (plus 20% handling fee which is subject to service charge and government tax) so it was much more fun to sit back with a cocktail from the bar until long after sunset whilst someone else rustled up something delicious to eat. The dining room was atmospheric; however it could do with a ceiling fan as well as the air conditioning option so you can comfortably have all the doors open. The villa’s out-of-the-way location could be a good or bad thing depending upon your preference, however we liked the unspoilt coastline and thought that the fact that the villa had its own car (to sweep us into Seminyak for example) really made up for this. For the active, there’s also a shared tennis court and a rowing machine.

Villa Sepoi Sepoi

Villa Sepoi Sepoi

Indonesia » Lombok » Northwest Lombok » Tanjung

We arrived at Sepoi Sepoi’s gorgeous Sira Beach by speedboat (like rock stars!), having spent the previous evening enjoying the nightlife of Gili Trawangan: a visit to the Gilis is an absolute must when you stay here – good restaurants and great snorkelling. The villa staff were on the beach to greet us and help carry bags, which was a relief as the property is so spread out it’s quite a hike to the rooms. Staying in the company of five other adults and four adolescent children, we found that Sepoi Sepoi works well for all ages (which is no surprise given the owners have children of their own). While we lazed by the pool, ambled down to the beach, or enjoyed an indulgent massage (best in the open air pavilion beside the pool, costs extra) the kids were off waterskiing, bicycling, and playing board games - it was often difficult to know where they had disappeared to.

The food at the villa was tasty and well presented. Meals are chosen in advance from a menu (due to the villa’s distance from the nearest grocery store) and are currently included in the rates up to a daily limit per guest. There is even a kids’ menu. On our last night we were treated to a roast beef dinner with Yorkshire pudding, a specialty the chef has been taught to make by the English owners, which certainly proved his ability to cook international dishes as well as local delights. Our favourite for after dinner was retreating to the living pavilion to watch movies on the big projector screen. Villa Sepoi Sepoi is a real tropical success - especially for families.

Seseh Beach Villa I

Seseh Beach Villa I

Indonesia » Bali » Canggu area » Seseh-Tanah Lot

Arriving at Seseh Beach Villa after dark, our first impressions were of a luxurious haven under a vast starlit sky.  The crests of huge waves crashing onto the beach just beyond the villa gardens reflected brightly in the moonlight.  It was an exciting and exotic welcome.

After a deep sleep in a super-comfortable four-poster bed in one of the upstairs Ocean Rooms, we drew back the curtains to get our bearings.  The ocean looked as amazing as it had sounded the night before, and from below a cloudless sky the gardens and pool beckoned.  Breakfast was a feast of fresh fruit, good coffee and freshly baked pastries – a great start to the day.  Later we enjoyed a delicious chargrilled salmon salad, which confirmed the chef’s skills and had us eagerly anticipating our next meal.  A chat with the friendly villa manager armed us with the information we needed to go on an exploratory walk around the village, which gave us some fascinating glimpses into rural Bali life.  The beach is beautiful for walking and photos, but huge waves warned us away from the water.

We thought that the layout at Seseh Beach Villa – both inside and out – would work very well for both family holidaymakers and for wedding parties.  Nearly all rooms face the gardens and ocean and the two bales at each end of the lovely long pool make gorgeous, breezy outdoor living areas.  A second Seseh Beach Villa, situated immediately behind the first, will open next year, making this an even better wedding destination, with a total of 11 bedrooms across both villas.

Seseh’s rural location may not make it everyone’s cup of tea, but a complimentary car and driver make it easy to reach Canggu and Seminyak should you want to.  Personally, we were very happy just to rest, relax and enjoy the villa.

Villa Shambala

Villa Shambala

Indonesia » Bali » Greater Seminyak » Seminyak

A beautiful villa that sleeps ten plus, and is right in the heart of Seminyak? Sign us up! Villa Shambala will definitely be a popular choice amongst the cognoscenti with large families or groups of party people who simply dig the happening atmosphere of Seminyak.  The design, with two bedrooms and a TV room in the main building and three bedrooms and another TV room in the  guest house, is a great layout for bringing the in-laws or giving the teenagers (and yourselves) some space.  The staff are friendly and very efficient, and the cook can turn his hand to anything.  Make sure you grab yourself a massage or an Ayurvedic treatment in the specially-built spa room adjacent to the pool.  The owner is an artist and jewellery designer; some of her unique creations can be seen in the villa and are available for guests to purchase.

Returning to Villa Shambala in August 2014 we were happy to see that the same high standards are not only being maintained, but have been enhanced by two smart new facilities; a sun deck with a beautiful backdrop, and an outdoor-but-undercover dining area with built-in barbeque which has been installed next to the living room.

Villa Shinta Dewi Seminyak

Villa Shinta Dewi Seminyak

Indonesia » Bali » Greater Seminyak » Seminyak

Villa Shinta Dewi Seminyak is such a pretty villa; it brought grins to our faces as soon as we walked in. And we were given such a warm greeting by the staff, with a frangipani garland each, a welcome drink and cool refreshing towel. The villa is built around an inner courtyard dominated by the pool, and although there’s not much garden the plants and flowering trees are gorgeous. The interiors are also lovely, with very comfortable sofas, chairs, beds and sunbeds, and sophisticated soft furnishings. It’s a tasteful, grown up villa, and this is also reflected in the service, which is very discreet. The staff have big smiles and the chef’s forte is a great homemade pizza and a hearty breakfast (breakfast is included in the villa rate; all other provisions are on guest account).

We certainly had no complaints on our return visit to Villa Shinta Dewi Seminyak. This charming villa has been beautifully maintained and refreshed with new soft furnishings, wall coverings and generous licks of paint. There are now two 47-inch flat screen TVs, one in the open-air lounge and one in the study, complete with surround-sound, which turns this cosy room into a small home theatre. The villa manager told us that all the guests love this room. In fact, reviewing the great choice of guest relaxation areas at Villa Shinta Dewi Seminyak, and after having spent a bit of time in the delightful sunset lounge, we decided to up the score a bit. We also increased the score for the staff, they’re a great team.

Sira Beach House

Sira Beach House

Indonesia » Lombok » Northwest Lombok » Tanjung

This is a great villa for families or groups of friends, with loads of space, private places to escape and plenty of entertainment for all ages. The pairing of the six bedrooms means that three families can easily escape from each other in their own separate areas. During our visit to the villa the staff surprised us by setting up a sunset table for two on the sand, within a circle of candles and flaming torches, to create a most romantic feast of local dishes. Only after the sun went down did we realise that the ‘circle’ was actually a heart shape! The chef has created a great menu and can turn his hand to anything but loves to indulge his guests with Lombok specialties. Due to the remoteness of the area, you’ll be asked to order your first meal and any special requests in advance of your arrival. The kitchen will operate on a menu or grocery system according to your preferences.

Fully self-contained, we didn’t leave the confines of the villa grounds except to swim in the ocean. The electronic beeper that we were given to summon the staff at anytime was a great idea (and necessary due to the size of the place). No one claims that this villa is 100% environmentally sustainable but great care has been taken in the design to be as eco-friendly as possible. We were very aware that, although were indulging in six-star luxury, we were having a low impact – the pool is chemical free, our long showers and baths were solar heated and the water we were using was being recycled to nurture the organic gardens.
