Villa Windu Asri

Villa Windu Asri

Indonesia » Bali » Greater Seminyak » Seminyak

The fountain courtyard that lies just behind the front door of Windu Asri is a perfect regal welcome for the splendid residence that lies inside.  Of course, we had seen the pictures online but it didn’t really prepare us for the sheer grandeur of the villa.  Imagine a Raffles Hotel, built for one privileged group complete with a private swimming pool and all the bells and whistles of fine living but with the benefit of 21st century hindsight.  Everything about Windu Asri accommodated our love of comfort, technology, space and natural light.  It was also wonderfully quiet – all we could hear as we lazed beside the pool was birdsong. 
 
A big shout out must go to the staff, without whom our stay would have been nowhere near as relaxing and satisfying as it was.  They made us feel as comfortable as if we were family and as special as if we were honoured guests.  When drinks were getting low they were there with a refill, be it beer or afternoon tea.  And the chef’s talents cannot be over-emphasized.  Although the villa is in a prime location for all the great new restaurants for which Bali is becoming increasingly renowned, we were more than happy to eat at the villa for breakfast, lunch and dinner.  The food is beyond delicious… as is the villa.  Book it!

Villa Windu Sari

Villa Windu Sari

Indonesia » Bali » Greater Seminyak » Seminyak

During our inspection of Villa Windu Sari we were treated to great service and cuisine by the staff. The villa is modern, functional, practical and most importantly comfortable. We felt very at home here. Our visit was with a group of friends and we found Windu Sari well laid out and generous enough for us to be able to enjoy each other’s company or retreat for some privacy and solitude when we wished. The villa would also work well for families.

Villa Yaringa

Villa Yaringa

Thailand » Phuket » Natai Beach

Settling into the embrace of stylish Villa Yaringa, with little to do but gaze across the endless sea and sky, we soon felt like cosseted celebrities hiding away from the world.  We were really taken with the villa’s terrace and gardens, which are arranged in different sections and levels like a giant-sized chessboard undulating towards the sea.  The sunken lounge in the middle of the terrace is a fine spot to gather for sundowners, and we also loved relaxing in the shade of the trees on the “island” that rises in the middle of the pool.  The views – an unblemished panorama of sea, sand and sky – are simply breathtaking. 

Our family had a quiet visit to Yaringa, but having seen the wonderful pool, outdoor entertaining areas and sea views, we felt it would be a great place to host a party; mingling poolside with cocktails under the tropical night sky.  Weddings and events of up to 40 people may be hosted here (an event fee applies).

We think that Yaringa’s layout and facilities are especially well suited for couples holidaying together, with the three bedrooms of similar size that are set apart from one another for privacy.  (Although there might be a battle for the ground-floor bedroom, which has a coveted position closest to the beach and by the pool!)

The Ylang Ylang

The Ylang Ylang

Indonesia » Bali » East Coast » Sanur-Ketewel

Initially, The Ylang Ylang can come across as quite daunting, especially the atrium, but it doesn't take long to settle in and feel comfortably at home. The staff are incredibly welcoming and gracious; some of them have been working here for nine years. The black and gold theme will not be to everyone’s taste – it is a bit glitzy – and we never did figure out what the blue lighting under the beds was all about!

Given its seafront location and the salt water environment maintenance is a continual battle and, in places, the villa is definitely showing its age. Some fittings may not work and some of the huge doors maybe stiff – it shouldn’t affect your enjoyment of Villa Ylang Ylang though, and staff are on hand if you need help with anything. Some of the bathrooms feel a little dated but they function just fine.

Villa Alice 2

Villa Alice 2

Indonesia » Bali » Greater Seminyak » Seminyak

If you’re looking for a villa in Seminyak, chances are you’re hoping to find one that’s got a great central location within strolling distance of a choice of restaurants, shops and bars. Villa Alice 2’s situation just a two-minute walk to Jalan Laksmana (aka Eat Street) and ten-minutes from Seminyak’s popular swathe of beaches will not disappoint. Very handily, its two bedrooms are equally sized making it suitable for families, couples and friends alike looking for a private place to stay in the heart of Seminyak.

We liked that having the living and sleeping areas divided across the tropical garden meant that in the evening, anyone retiring early will hear little noise from the lounge. The fact that the garden is enclosed and that the swimming pool has a shallow paddler-friendly section makes the villa especially suitable for families looking for a central base. A pool safety fence can be erected on request and baby cots are available. Each bedroom came with its own TV and DVD player (bedroom 1 also has cable) so that individual guests can escape and movie watch as they like.

We found the staff to be friendly and very helpful, and they left us to our own devices for much of the time. Since their working hours are from 8am until 4pm every day, we liked having the house to ourselves in the evening too; this arrangement works well for privacy-seeking couples. An American breakfast is cooked daily, and if you wish to pick a dish or two from one of the extensive take away menus they will help you to order lunch and dinner. Between the BaliEpicure fine dining menu (which we recommend) and the Hallo Bali magazine of numerous restaurants and cuisines there’s loads to choose from. You can also arrange for a cook to come to the villa for a fee. Otherwise, just head out and enjoy the amazing restaurants on your doorstep.

Villa Alice 1

Villa Alice 1

Indonesia » Bali » Greater Seminyak » Seminyak

Villa Alice 1 couldn’t be better located if having a plethora of restaurants, shops and bars within easy reach are important considerations when picking your holiday villa. Aside from its fab location, Villa Alice 1 is also a wonderful place to escape the hustle and bustle of the urban environment that surrounds it. There’s plenty of space for a family to spread out; a baby cot is available and an extra bed can be added into one of the bedrooms if necessary. The tropical garden is enclosed, the pool has a shallow section for little paddlers and a pool safety fence can be erected on request.

Couples will also find this villa much to their liking – although the staff are friendly and very helpful, they did leave us to our own devices for much of the time so it felt very private. Since their working hours are from 8am until 4pm every day, we liked having the house to ourselves in the evening too. An American breakfast is cooked daily, and if you wish to pick a dish or two from one of the extensive take away menus they will help you to order lunch and dinner. Between the BaliEpicure fine dining menu and the Hallo Bali magazine of numerous restaurants and cuisines there’s loads to choose from. We picked dishes from Lemongrass – a Thai restaurant – and they weren’t bad at all. You can also arrange for a cook to come to the villa for a fee. Otherwise, just head out and enjoy the amazing restaurants on your doorstep.

Ambalama

Ambalama

Sri Lanka » South Coast » Talpe

We found Ambalama to be a very flexible beach villa, suitable for families, groups of friends and even decadent couples. It is spacious enough to host larger groups and its sociable layout maximises party potential (as does the iPod docking station and Bose sound system). Each bedroom is similarly sized which saves arguments about who sleeps where (although the bedrooms to the far sides of the villa perhaps offer the most privacy and are a little more special with their tropical outdoor showers). There is plenty of space inside the villa and outside on the pool terrace for dining, and every meal is an occasion, reflecting chef Roshan’s five star hotel training in a wide range of delicious fusion cuisine. Ingredients (on guest account) are bought fresh from the market each day.     

The staff at Ambalama are proficient and present service with a smile; offering to unpack our suitcase on arrival and serving us chilled G&Ts on the pool terrace overlooking the sea at sunset. A pair of non-resident managers drop by to welcome guests and make sure they have everything they require, and are on call if advice is needed about where to eat out, or to help with any travel arrangements (Roshan doubles up as an in-house manager and can also assist with most guest queries).

Whilst there isn’t a TV or DVD player at the villa, these can be organised with prior arrangement – although it’s probably best to bring your own DVDs with you, as well as childrens’ games if needs be. Whilst the narrow beach outside Ambalama isn’t great for swimming, you only have to walk five minutes to the nearest swimming beach. That said, there are few villas on the Galle coast better located than Ambalama; beaches, restaurants, shops and attractions are all within a short walk or drive.

Angel's Villa

Angel's Villa

Indonesia » Bali » Greater Seminyak » Seminyak

Angel’s Villa is compact both in its location and the villa itself – that said, it is bigger than most villas of this type and price range. The outside space is dominated by the pool which is lovely and refreshing – perfect to slide into from the pool-side lounge area – but there’s not much space for kids to run around. Overhead fans provide a good breeze to the open lounge and dining area which is not air-conditioned but is cool and shady. The dining area is a great setting to enjoy meals but do not try to move the table – quite frankly its one of the largest pieces of wood we have laid eyes on – and the quirky holes in the table top will no doubt capture the odd casualty.

All three bedrooms are spacious and have excellent bathrooms – clean, modern and very functional, if a little minimalist. The staff were attentive, although a little timid and their English wasn’t always great, but their desire to please is without compare. As the villa is managed independently, rather than through a specialist management company, the training levels were perhaps not quite up to the usual professional standard. The more senior staff, including the villa manager, were much better but they also work at the owner’s other villa so are not always around. That said, they were easily tracked down when needed.

All in all we liked the villa for what it was and would recommend it for a small group or family, but maybe not for very young children as the pool would be a constant concern.
