The Edge

The Edge

Indonesia » Bali » Jimbaran - Bukit » The Bukit

Oh, yeah baby, this is what we’re talking about. The edge is all that and more as far as we are concerned, and we were a very happy couple to be able to experience it: massive, versatile and staffed to the hilt. Guests can remain as horizontal as the horizon – lazing on sunbeds with to-die-for views by day and hunkering down in one of the eight leather lay-z-boy chairs in the home cinema with rolling surround-sound and a stack of your favourite blockbusters by night.

Facilities? We’ll give you facilities. Apart from the home cinema, there’s a cigar smoking area in the wine cellar, a huge dedicated spa, a flat-screen TV in every room and, just quietly, a bowling alley is in the planning. It doesn’t stop there though; the three and five-bedroom villas have two pools each in addition to the communal pool. Kids will be in heaven with their dedicated playroom, which has slides, murals, games, books and not one but two games systems with a TV for each – could this concept of ‘no sharing’ perhaps be the secret to successful parenting?

The Cliff at The Edge

The Cliff at The Edge

Indonesia » Bali » Jimbaran - Bukit » The Bukit

From the top-notch luxury, state-of-the-art facilities, impeccable service, privacy, and – of course – the view, everything about The Cliff (and indeed The edge) proved to be perfect. The dedicated 24-hour personal butlers have all undergone extensive training at Magnum, one of the foremost butler training schools in the world. Whether it was a drink or a sandwich, an extension cable or an adaptor, the butlers anticipated our every need, yet they were so discreet we hardly noticed they were there. Be sure to make at least one visit to the amazing spa: the floor is covered in three inches of water and the treatment beds seem to float between the sea and the sky behind the billowing white curtains that surround it.

The View at The edge

The View at The edge

Indonesia » Bali » Jimbaran - Bukit » The Bukit

Oh, how we loved this villa! There is something magical about lying on a sun lounger, on a cliff so high above the pounding waves that oxygen might become necessary, with a cold drink in your hand, a liberal coating of sunscreen on your skin and, best of all, nothing whatsoever on your agenda. This is the kind of view that inspires much of the world’s most beautiful poetry: so mesmerising that magazines may well remain unread.

When you do come down to earth, take the time to have a spa treatment in the jaw-dropping facility – the floor is covered in three inches of water and the treatment beds seem to float between the sea and the sky behind the billowing white curtains that surround it.

The service was impeccable and the food amazing, just what you might expect from highly trained professionals. Our Magnum-trained butlers were quick to spot an empty glass and could always sense a hungry tummy. Breakfasting on the shady terrace was a wonderful way to start the day: inspiring us to take on all the great things we’ve always wanted to do. Rather a shame, perhaps, that in the end we opted just to lie on the sun loungers gaze at the ocean and work on the suntan.

Uma Nina

Uma Nina

Indonesia » Bali » Jimbaran - Bukit » Jimbaran

There is something very easygoing about Villa Uma Nina, and we thought this must have been down to its serene situation and its beautiful presentation both indoors and out; we felt at home the moment we stepped inside.

Uma Nina is a great family villa; the garden is almost flat, despite the property’s hilltop location, so it’s great for children of all ages; there’s also a slide for the swimming pool, not to mention tortoises in the pond, which kids will absolutely adore. A sand petanque pitch at the bottom of the garden and games such as croquet provide further entertainment.

Rooms in the main house are equally sized and come with their own private balconies or verandas making the villa good for friends and couples sharing. The upstairs bedrooms and rooftop terrace, were the absolute best for gazing at the views of harbour and sea. Stone stools and petrified wood seats might not encourage you to stay seated up here for too long, but they look great and, along with many other natural furnishings and fittings, provide the villa with plenty of character.

Service was generally good and the manager was very attentive. We enjoyed the meals prepared for us by the villa cook, though if you wish to self-cater the kitchen is well-equipped for it. Alternatively, take advantage of the villa car and driver and go out to eat in Jimbaran.

Umah di Desa II

Umah di Desa II

Indonesia » Bali » Greater Seminyak » Umalas-Kerobokan

Umah di Desa II is stylish and cheerful and flooded with natural light, it also feels delightfully homely with its warm colours, pretty tiles and lovely garden. The vines that dangle from the flat roof of the lounge pavilion create wonderful softness. Privacy and discretion are paramount here, staff will ring the doorbell before coming in – so there are no awkward surprises should you decide to skinny dip. Completed in May 2012, Umah di Desa II was delightfully new and fresh at the time of our visit, a contemporary villa with the crispest linen, firmest cushions and immaculate appliances. Walking to the beach gave us a pleasant glimpse into our neighbourhood and we wandered along the sand at sunset to the funky beach club, Potato Head. We also discovered nearby Watercress, a charming healthy restaurant with lovely rice paddy views – while meat eaters will love the ribs and the vibe at Naughty Nuris. The location was perfect for us: not in the thick of Seminyak, but close enough to ride the bikes (provided) or to flag a cab.

Umah di Desa III

Umah di Desa III

Indonesia » Bali » Canggu area » Canggu

Villa Umah di Desa III is sunny and cheerful and feels delightfully homey with its soft colours, pretty tiles and lovely garden. The design is modern yet rustic with an almost cottage-like vibe, but with all the elegance you would expect in a Bali villa. It is also utterly peaceful, and in the evening we could hear the sound of waves crashing in the distance. We loved the privacy and discretion: staff ring the doorbell before coming in, so there are no awkward surprises should you decide to take a skinny dip. Completed in December 2012, Umah di Desa III was sparkling new and fresh at the time of our visit, a contemporary villa with immaculate linen, the plumpest of cushions and shiny new appliances.

Walking to the beach gave us a pleasant glimpse into our picturesque neighbourhood. Take care though; the currents are quite strong here so make sure to swim between the flags. The funky beach clubs W and Potato Head are an easy stroll along the sand and you can get a casual Indonesian meal at the rustic cafes strung along the beach. Or get dressed to the nines and head to Mozaic Beach Club – one of Bali’s best restaurants – for a memorable dining experience. We also discovered nearby Watercress, a charming restaurant with great salads and cakes, and lovely rice paddy views. Naughty Nuri’s, famous for its barbecue ribs and Martinis, is also very accessible. The location was perfect for us, not in the thick of Seminyak, but close enough to ride the bikes (complimentary) or to flag a cab.

Umah Duri

Umah Duri

Indonesia » Bali » Greater Seminyak » Umalas-Kerobokan

Don’t let the discreet entranceway to Umah Duri fool you. Once you pass through it and go down the narrow bamboo lined path, a delightful scene unfolds: a beautifully designed villa just oozing with Balinese charm and style. Just far enough out of town to be quiet and peaceful we really enjoyed this villa. A long afternoon chilling by the pool, sinking into the sofas and getting a couple of great massages followed by some tasty home cooking by Komang (who fulfils the role of both manager and cook), made for a pretty fantastic stay. The surrounding area is slowly becoming quite the place to be, and lots of new eateries are popping up almost overnight so dining choices are never going to be thin on the ground. Should you should feel the need to cook, however, you’ll be well pleased by the big and well-fitted kitchen. That said, our vote stays with Komang.

Umah Maya

Umah Maya

Indonesia » Bali » Greater Seminyak » Seminyak

What a great find Villa Umah Maya was, quiet and romantic, yet right in the middle of buzzy Seminyak, Bali’s chicest ‘hood, with the shops, restaurants and beach all within either walking distance or a short taxi ride. So, you girls in the party can send your boys off surfing while you get busy flexing their wallets.

Fenny, the manager/housekeeper, certainly knows her way around a kitchen and has recently been swotting up on Greek cuisine so make sure you have at least a couple of lunches at home by the pool and prepare to be amazed. And if you need anything else, Fenny is more than happy to jump on her bike and find it for you.

Definitely try out the hammocks as you laze the day away in the pool. Half in the water, half out of the water, these are fun, fun, fun.

Villa Valentine

Villa Valentine

Indonesia » Bali » Canggu area » Canggu

As well as being exceptionally comfortable, Villa Valentine has a sense of light and space that you could only dream of in Seminyak; yet it’s close enough to that most happening of Balinese centres to make popping in for a meal or shopping trip a piece of cake. We spent a lot of time in the poolside pavilion which is the ideal chill zone - shady during the day and peaceful in the evenings, and is very well set up with lamps, stereo, and even a bar fridge. It’s also one of the best places to appreciate the sprawling gardens, which are park-like in scope and design. We thought the quirky furnishings were fun, especially the zebra-print chaise longue and the glitter balls, while the dining room with its art deco-style chandelier and fabulous feature mirror just begs for interesting dinner parties. One of the things we like most about Villa Valentine is that everything is so soft, fluffy and enveloping, from the daybeds to the Thai cushions to the plush black towels. We also liked the great choice of restaurants within walking distance, from cheap and cheerful warungs, to cafes like Butter (good for breakfast treats) and Canggu Plaza with pizza, Japanese food and Brazilian barbecue.
