Ambassador's House

Ambassador's House

Sri Lanka » South Coast » Galle

Ambassador’s House is certainly spacious. When we first explored inside, it just seemed to keep on going back and back. We really liked the roof terrace too – the perfect place for soaking up the sun.

The upstairs bedrooms have recently undergone renovations and now work well as a family suite, and the master bedroom ensuite is very special with its tub, twin washbasins and twin showers – true ‘his-and-hers’ luxury! Be aware though that the bed in the master bedroom is slightly shorter than your average queen-size bed. We liked that the main living areas were wired for sound as this really enhanced the mood (bring your own music or iPod), and the large screen in the TV room made it feel like a cosy mini cinema.

The villa is particularly well set up for kids – each staircase is fitted with a safety gate, and there are loads of toys and games. The staff love kids and we found them all to be warm and welcoming. The chef will ably cater for all your dining requirements (groceries on guest account) and the management team, who drop by daily, are very helpful and friendly and will happily arrange onward travel, excursions or activities.

Casa Brio

Casa Brio

Indonesia » Bali » Greater Seminyak » Seminyak

Casa Brio was a delightful surprise — everything was so much bigger and better than we anticipated; the photos really don’t do it justice.

We were particularly impressed with manager Pak Yusa and his staff, who made sure we wanted for nothing during our stay from the moment they welcomed us with an ice-cold towel and fresh juice. A special shout out to Wayan the villa chef whose culinary skills ensured we never dined out (even though our old-time favourite, La Lucciola was only a five-minute stroll away). My taste buds still tingle at the thought of his delicately flavoured pomelo and chicken salad, and beautifully presented mahi mahi steaks.

This feels very much like a ‘grown up’ villa — we can easily imagine elegant dinner parties and special family celebrations, and think it’s a great villa for friends to share. Families with toddlers might be concerned about the open staircase and rooftop terrace (not to mention sticky fingers all over the handsome upholstered furniture). But the staff enjoy welcoming children, can supply a pool fence on request, and there’s a large shallow pool area for young ones to enjoy.

Eshara I

Eshara I

Indonesia » Bali » Greater Seminyak » Seminyak

Eshara works as well as an eight (or five) bedroom residence as it does as three smaller individual villas.  With all the connecting walls hidden away it certainly feels open and spacious.  The pools do dominate the gardens, leaving relatively small patches of open lawn, however there is plenty of deck space with loungers and outdoor seating.  We would certainly recommend the combined villas for a group of up to 16 who want to be centrally located.  You do not get more ‘in town’ than this.

All the bedrooms are well designed with modern ensuite bathrooms and plenty of storage, and most open out onto the pleasant gardens. Blackout curtains and TVs are nice touches.

During our visit, the staff looked after us really well with smiling service and a willingness to please that made us feel very comfortable.

Villa Issi

Villa Issi

Indonesia » Bali » Greater Seminyak » Seminyak

It was a real privilege to stay at Villa Issi, this is a gorgeous, funky, fancy pad where no expense has been spared. It’s all about space, ultra-modern architecture, more space, high-technology and super comfortable furnishings, ranging from leather chairs to beanbag-sun-loungers. The only antiquated elements at the villa are the 200-year-old frangipani trees. Beautiful! Everywhere there are walls-of-glass that open to the balmy Bali breezes. The elevated deck that bridges the swimming pool is a fabulous feature and the kitchen is a dream, we’d never before seen such a state-of-the art fridge! In fact, there are surprises at every twist and turn, including lots of places to escape to and be on your own. This is a really exciting villa to stay in.

Villa Jajaliluna

Villa Jajaliluna

Indonesia » Bali » Greater Seminyak » Seminyak

Just across the road from the prestigious resorts of The Oberoi, The Legian and The Samaya, and a brief, worse-for-wear stagger home from Bali’s best nightspots, we found Jajaliluna’s location to be superb. The beach is almost on the doorstep while restaurants, fashion boutiques and high-end retail shops are within such easy reach that our credit card companies were loving us for it. Despite being in the middle of all this downtown action, Villa Jajaliluna is a serene and quiet oasis. We spent a very nice few hours by the pool, catching up on our magazine reading from the villa’s (very) updated selection of GQ, FRV, Vogue and The Sunday Times Travel magazines. After spending the latter part of the afternoon on the beach and enjoying a sundowner or three at Ku Dé Ta, we retired to the villa, ordered home delivery of gourmet burgers from the restaurant next door, cranked up the air-conditioning and settled down for a night of cinematic heaven on the big flat-screen in the TV lounge. Tarrantino never looked so good!  We came back to Jajaliluna at the end of 2012 to find that a brand new state of the art kitchen had been added on to the side of the dining room, something which is guaranteed to make this already hyper family-friendly villa even more popular.

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.
