Kaba Kaba Estate

Kaba Kaba Estate

Indonesia » Bali » Tabanan

We’ve been lucky enough to visit a lot of beautiful villas in our time, but Kaba Kaba Estate exceeded all expectations of comfort, luxuriousness, good taste and space.  There’s so much to do on the estate itself that its out-of-town location is not an issue.  Everything has been thought of, from tennis, foosball, air hockey and all the major electronic game consoles, through to a library, gym and even a croquet lawn.  If only we’d had more time!  As it was, the pools, the spa and the spectacular home cinema were more than enough to relax and entertain us.
    
The staff were just the right mix of professional and friendly, and the chef is a consummate pro, delighting us with everything he presented.  Although there is a selection menu, we highly suggest that you just ‘go blind’ (like we did) and let the chef and his team surprise you with their magic.  Our simple, three-course Balinese dinner was off-the-charts delicious.

Do go for an early morning wander through the rice fields.  The locals are very friendly and the experience will be something the regular tour guides can’t give you.  The wide-open spaces are awe inspiring.

Villa Kailasha

Villa Kailasha

Indonesia » Bali » Tabanan

Guests booking Villa Kailasha will hopefully have spotted that it’s in a remote location so there should be no surprise on arrival: we certainly thought the villa’s setting was sublime. Long stretches of black sand and marauding surf with hardly another tourist in sight. We spent most of our time stretched out by the pool enjoying the ministrations of the staff and soaking up the ocean views, but while we were there we were privileged to witness a village ceremony when the procession passed right by the villa’s front gate. We followed the merriment and colour down to the beach and experienced a Balinese event that, for us, was priceless.

For a change of scenery, take a stroll along the small roads and into the local villages for a slice of rural life. And for something a little more sophisticated, stop by the Alila Villas Soori Resort for dinner, or at least a sunset drink. The classy surroundings are pretty special and being so remote not many people drop in, so don’t miss the opportunity while you’re in the neighbourhood. We went for the said sunset drink but ended up staying for dinner – and really rated their kitchen. While their spa would probably welcome visitors as well, it’s perhaps more tempting to ask the villa staff to organise a therapist to come and give you a treatment at ‘home’.

Kalimaya I

Kalimaya I

Indonesia » Bali » Greater Seminyak » Seminyak

Wow! Villa Kalimaya I was a surprise from the moment we opened the gilded Balinese doors and stepped into its garden. Yes, garden!  Not a handkerchief-sized patch eaten up by a pool, as is the case in so many villas in densely built Seminyak, but a huge expanse of lawn edged with travellers palms, hibiscus and frangipani trees – big enough to lose three guest bedroom pavilions which were completely camouflaged from view!  

While there are two huge living rooms and an indoor dining room within the main house, we spent most of our time idling on over-sized cushions in the large poolside pavilion, and chose to take our meals alfresco. Speaking of meals, the cook whipped up a delicious Singapore laksa for us – apparently a doddle for him as he regularly prepares gourmet dinner parties for 20; no wonder most guests forego the pleasures of the many fine restaurants within an easy walk of the villa in favour of his home cooking.

The cook, butlers and housekeepers – all charming and helpful – divide their time between all four Kalimaya villas set along the same quiet lane. We considered this a bonus as it means guests benefit from a professional team, but privacy is not compromised by their continued presence.

We appreciated that Kalimaya has been designed as a home – originally for entertaining her royal friends, the owner told us. Comfortable, well equipped and full of personal art and furniture collections, the place feels larger-than-life. This is the perfect villa for an extended family or groups of friends who want to be sociable and yet still be able to get away from each other; the bedrooms are large and designed for privacy, there are lots of different seating and dining areas, and we were still discovering discreet get-away-from-the-crowd hideaways right up to our departure.

Kalimaya II

Kalimaya II

Indonesia » Bali » Greater Seminyak » Seminyak

When we first opened the gilded Balinese doors onto Kalimaya II’s garden, we thought we’d come to the wrong place – surely it was too big to be only a two-bedroom villa? The element of surprise was maintained throughout our visit, as we discovered not one but two living rooms as well as a separate dining room and a second dining area on the upstairs terrace – an extraordinary amount of space, especially in such a hip Seminyak hotspot.

This is a really well-designed, well-furnished villa with a lot of extra details to ensure a comfortable, cossetted stay. With the large pool, jacuzzi and infra-red sauna to frolic in (plus four TVs and DVD players), there was plenty to keep us occupied without making use of the complimentary Canggu Club membership. And when we did step beyond the villa walls, we were on the beach or in Seminyak’s best restaurants and boutiques within minutes.

This is the perfect place for a couple, two couples or a family of four who want to be sociable and yet still be able to get away from each other. The cook, butlers and housekeepers – all charming and helpful – divide their time between this and the other three Kalimaya villas along the same quiet lane. We considered this a bonus as it means guests benefit from a professional team, but privacy is not compromised by their continued presence – and it means that self-catering is a personal choice, not a prerequisite.

Kalimaya IV

Kalimaya IV

Indonesia » Bali » Greater Seminyak » Seminyak

When we first opened the gilded Balinese doors into Villa Kalimaya IV, we were immediately taken with the large pool that runs the length of the garden, with its huge jacuzzi, infra-red sauna, sunbathing deck and imposing raised balé. The element of surprise was maintained throughout our visit, as we discovered not one but two living rooms as well as a second dining area on the upstairs terrace – an extraordinary amount of space, especially in such a hip Seminyak hotspot.

This is the perfect place for a family or group of friends who want to be sociable and yet still be able to get away from each other. The room configuration is good for families as one of the two upstairs bedrooms has twin beds – perfect for the kids – while the downstairs bedroom will suit the grandparents (or older kids returning from a night on the town).

Villa Kalyani

Villa Kalyani

Indonesia » Bali » Canggu area » Canggu

Relaxing comes almost too easy at Villa Kalyani and you never get bored of doing it. From swing bed to bar stool, from poolside to pool table; if one space becomes tedious you can just decamp to the next inviting chill-out zone. The home theatre is one of the best that we have seen. With movies running through a digital projector onto a 130-inch screen, the room has surround-sound and two sofa beds wide enough to lie perpendicularly horizontal.  We chose Jurassic Park to do our surroundings justice: nothing quite like a life-sized, saliva-filled set of T-Rex jaws coming at you to make you appreciate the wonders of modern technology. And there’s an even bigger screen out in the garden for special occasions!    

The staff are smart and have been trained to anticipate your every need; the timing of the bite-size fried bananas and ice cream brought to us poolside at sunset was impeccable.  The main 22 x 6m pool has a shallow area for children at the top end and a gas fire bowl providing dramatic night-time reflections. Guest comfort has been carefully thought through, with lots of underwater pool seating so you can enjoy your G&T without having to tread water at the same time. The Pioneer Pro DJ equipment can be rented for parties at the villa.  

On returning to Kalyani for the first time in three years, we were very happy to note that the villa has been impeccably maintained, it has even been featured in a coffee table book called ‘The New Indonesian House’.

Villa Kumara

Villa Kumara

Sri Lanka » South Coast » Mirissa

Built in 2013 (and extended to add a third bedroom suite in 2015), Kumara Villa presents a contemporary Sri Lankan aesthetic. The self-contained bedroom suites ideally suit three couples or a couple of families travelling together, as there is ample space in each suite to sleep a child in an extra bed. The living pavilion is very spacious, made even more so by the bi-fold doors that seamlessly blend the indoors with the pool terrace, and share the views. We loved the guest kitchen (it’s also aptly equipped) and spent hours beside the pool watching the birds and monkeys in the trees beyond.

The staff were efficient and organised, whilst also being discreet. The maids have set times in the morning and evening for cleaning the bedrooms, and the whole villa was spotless. The food we ate was good, particularly the Sri Lankan curries and all meals (except the daily ‘Tropical’ breakfast, which is included in the rate) are charged to the guest account on a cost basis. Our only complaint was that the staff were perhaps a little too prompt with meal service, meaning that if we weren’t as prompt at getting to the table, our meals might have been cold.

It takes about 15 minutes to walk to Weligama’s eastern strands although taking a tuk-tuk to the main surfing beach or Mirissa’s pretty sands is a quicker option. There are a couple of bicycles at the villa for guest use, but these are better for exploring the quieter lanes inland.
