Villa Inti

Villa Inti

Indonesia » Bali » Canggu area » Canggu

Green is said to be soothing for the soul, and in the verdant surrounds of Villa Inti almost every shade is represented; luminous rice paddies, spindly palms, lush leaves and foliage all conspiring to induce absolute calmness. Gurgling water fountains add to the serenity of this villa which feels wonderfully worn in without a hint of being worn out. The owners have great taste, obviously favouring comfort over ostentation and we happily soaked up the sense of intimacy and warmth, feeling right at home from the minute we walked in.

The atmosphere is one of pure tropical languor, easily indulged while sinking into a sea of cushions, sprawling on a sofa or lounging in a poolside deck chair. Service is relaxed – more of the ‘ask for’ rather than ’anticipated’ style – which suited us, but may not be ideal for those who like to be waited on hand and foot. When we managed to tear our eyes away from the scenery, we worked our way through the plethora of books, magazines, CDs and games, lamenting the fact that we didn’t have time for everything. We were happy to switch off, but the fast internet connection, good mobile reception and fax machine are handy for those who need to stay in touch with the outside world, which – despite the rural setting – isn’t actually that far away.

Jeda Villa - Bali 3BR

Jeda Villa - Bali 3BR

Indonesia » Bali » Pemuteran

We love the rural wilds of north-west Bali with its dry, almost Mediterranean climate and total lack of tourist hordes, so we are almost loathe to share news of this little gem of a villa for fear that it will become so popular that we will never get a chance to go back. Surrounded by thick lowland forest with towering mountains to the rear and ocean views to the front, Villa Bali at Jeda Villas is an oasis of lush lawns and gardens and glorious contemporary-Bali-style architecture that fair cries out “Love me. Enjoy me. Never leave me!”

Despite the remoteness of the area (or is that because of it?) there are many adventure activities to be had and experienced: snorkelling for the laid back, scuba diving for the more intense, mountain climbing, mountain biking, nature trekking, kayaking, bird watching and all round general rural exploration, which always turns up a few unexpected goodies such as stumbling across a Hindu village ceremony or witnessing fishermen bringing in their catch at dusk. Alternatively, like us, you can just do nothing and lie beside the pool and read books, drink beer and watch the gardeners cutting the grass.

The staff are all from the local village and haven’t wasted time in tourism school learning how to unfold starched white linen napkins in your lap - that’s not what this part of Bali is about. But even so, expect great tasting Western and Indonesian dishes, honest service, smiles and a glorious welcome.

Jeda Villa - Java 3BR

Jeda Villa - Java 3BR

Indonesia » Bali » Pemuteran

We love the rural wilds of northwest Bali with its dry, almost Mediterranean climate and total lack of tourist hordes, so we are almost loathe to share news of this little gem of a villa for fear that it will become so popular that we will never get a chance to go back.

Surrounded on all sides by thick lowland forest with towering mountains to the rear and ocean views to the front, the villa is an oasis of lush lawns and gardens and glorious contemporary-Bali-style architecture that fair cries out “Love me. Enjoy me. Never leave me!”

As chilled out as we were, we were keen to seek a deeper state of atrophy through the art of massage, which turned out to be only a phone call away with the choice of a female therapist or a local healer man from the nearby village. Both massages come highly recommended but do not exceed one per day or else you will turn to jelly.

But share we must and we just can’t sing high enough praise for Villa Timor.

Villa Kalyana

Villa Kalyana

Thailand » Koh Samui » Laem Sor

A villa with the ambiance and amenities of an exclusive private-island-hotel, but one where guests have the luxury of dictating their own schedule and choosing who they share precious holiday time with. This was the impression we took away with us following our recent stay at Villa Kalyana.

Whether you want a tropical holiday retreat for family and friends, an exclusive executive escape, a dream wedding venue or space for some other special celebration, Villa Kalyana fits the bill.  With nine privately positioned and thoughtfully appointed guestrooms (five with romantic garden bathrooms) plus a kids bunk room, and an abundance of cool communal areas, both outside and in – including a dining room fit for a banquet (and a kitchen to cater for one), a games room for the gents, movie room for the kids and poolside lounge for the ladies – options for fun and relaxation are seemingly endless.

The villa’s quiet beachside location on Samui’s southernmost tip may not suit the clubbing crowd whose idea of the perfect holiday is to be out on the town every night, but it’s ideal for large group gatherings who enjoy their own company. There’s little need for nightlife, restaurants, shops and other amusements at this self-contained villa where a team of willing staff are on hand to look after you; there’s an impressive selection of gizmos gadgets and games for entertainment, and friends and family provide all the company you could wish for. The huge (chemical-free) swimming pool, vast gardens and virtually private beachfront make Kalyana a great choice for families with energetic children too.

Kalyana only opened to guests mid 2012 and with a few finishing touches, including a more confident and polished dining service, we feel sure that it will soon rank easily among the best private luxury villa experiences on the island.

Villa Karishma

Villa Karishma

Indonesia » Bali » Greater Seminyak » Umalas-Kerobokan

Villa Karishma is certainly a very large villa that offers luxury and privacy. Our first impressions were that the high walls to either side of the villa made it feel a little hemmed in, but after a while this enclosure actually became quite comforting, and the views across the pool remain open towards the river and its wooded embankment. Although the master suite is without doubt the largest and most indulgent of the six bedrooms, the others are all of a similar size and so would be good for equitable sharing. A big selection of DVDs should suit everybody’s tastes – and can be enjoyed in the privacy of your own bedroom. We found the staff team, and in particular the butler, to be friendly and responsive to our requirements; they were very experienced and although perhaps few in number for a property of this size (only five full time), more can be called upon if the villa is fully occupied. The kitchen is very well-equipped and although presided over by a good chef who creates meals at cost price (plus 15% service charge), the staff did mention that guests are welcome to use it too, and that they are happy to help prepare and wash up. That said, we felt that Villa Karishma really is a place for escapism and pampering; the massive living room, complete with bar, is the perfect social hub. As well as a security guard, the villa also has 24 hour CCTV with cameras in the kitchen. There are no shopping or dining facilities within walking distance of the villa so if you wish to venture out a car is necessary. Alternatively, the staff can easily call for a taxi.

Villa Kawan

Villa Kawan

Indonesia » Bali » Tabanan

Oh the serenity! We were lucky enough to be staying at Villa Kawan (formerly Villa Asmara No. 2) during one of the many rice harvests and got to see the farmers and sharecroppers threshing and bagging the rice. They were more than happy to pose for a few photos. We spent a contented couple of hours walking through the fields along the beach, happy-snapping rural life as we went. A car is essential, and a driver highly recommended. The villa owner has a good relationship with the chap who collects you from the airport (transfers are extra), and he will supply this service at a reasonable daily price. The money you save on the super-reasonable villa rates will more than make up for the expense. We made sure we were well-provisioned with food for our stay by doing our grocery shopping in Seminyak in advance, (and we recommend that you do the same), and we then cooked our own meals without any problems. However, the villa manager-cum-butler, Jana, is very willing to help you with the grocery shopping, but bear in mind she will have to travel a long way to find imported or gourmet items, so allow a good hour or more for this service. Although the villa is marketed as self-catering, Jana will happily prepare your breakfast and lunch. Additionally, she can cook your dinner (for an extra charge as it would be outside her 9am – 4pm working hours). Make sure you bring a lot of reading (or writing) material because you will definitely have the time and inclination to finish at least three books and a year subscription’s worth of magazines during a one-week stay. Another major recommendation is to head out for a ride on one of the villa’s two (very tasty-looking) mountain bikes to explore the local countryside. Remember to take a copy of the villa’s business card in case you get lost in this rural paradise and need help getting back in time for sundowners in the rooftop gazebo. Priceless.

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.
