Villa Batujimbar

Villa Batujimbar

Indonesia » Bali » East Coast » Sanur-Ketewel

With so many ‘ultra villas’ in Bali nowadays boasting all the bells, whistles and 80-plus-inch televisions, it’s always nice to stay in a grand old villa like Batujimbar, a classic example of the original Bali style, where the sizzle is in the foundations and the history, and not the marketing. Batujimbar comes from a time when wealth and grandeur was wrapped up in simplicity and we revelled in it. Knowing that this was the place of choice for the likes of Mick Jagger, and chums, makes it somehow just a little more special, too.

Celebrity hype aside, the physicality of the villa is magnificent in its own right. It ticked all the boxes for us and it was a real pleasure to stay here and take a trip back in time. The grounds are huge, the bedrooms super-comfortable and the gardens are overflowing with trees and flowers under a tropical sun, with the beach just beyond the front gate making for a most relaxing stay.  Oh, and the food served from the villa’s kitchen is something else!

Bayu Gita Residence

Bayu Gita Residence

Indonesia » Bali » East Coast » Sanur-Ketewel

We wanted for nothing at Bayu Gita Residence.  The villa blends all the charms and appeal of a contemporary beach house with the stylish luxury of Bali villa living.  Thoughtful design, graceful Balinese aesthetics, natural building materials, the friendliest of welcomes, and what seems like great feng shui, all conspire to create an atmosphere that is warm and inviting, and we felt right at home from the moment we walked in.  While the design itself is delightfully simple and unpretentious, the luxury is in the details, and it is abundantly clear that no expense has been spared in creating this tasteful abode.  Interiors are refreshingly uncluttered – decoration seem unnecessary when the lavish finishing’s of the villa are themselves a work of art; from richly-hued dark timber latticed panels and highly detailed stone work, to delicately beaded cushions, swishing burgundy drapes and gorgeous framed textiles.  The beautiful white flowers that dangle from the vine-covered trellis on the patio add a touch of whimsy.

While the property is not huge, the space had been wonderfully utilised, and the open design makes it feel really fresh and spacious, especially with the sun streaming into the garden and all the doors thrown open to the sea breeze.  Expansive views from the upper floor, with tantalising glimpses of the sea, add to the sense of space. 

There’s no doubt that, when rented in conjunction with its big sister, six-bedroomed Villa Bayu Gita, Bayu Gita Residence would make a wonderful and very memorable beachside wedding venue.

Villa Puri Nirwana

Villa Puri Nirwana

Indonesia » Bali » East Coast » Sanur-Ketewel

Six years on from the original review, we enjoyed a delightful stay at Puri Nirwana. It was a pleasure to find such a quiet part of Bali’s coast completely untouched by the crowds, even in high season. The location is spectacular, and the views from the villa attention-grabbing throughout the day.

We had the beach to ourselves apart from a lone fisherman, and enjoyed walking along the beach-front promenade, to Pura Masceti, one of Bali’s nine sacred directional temples. The sunrises over Cucukan Beach are sensational, and we were mesmerised by the island and mountain views.

The villa is large and the staff are very friendly, full of smiles; the chef, who had worked at Ubud culinary icon Mosaic, prepared some beautifully presented meals for us. Puri Nirwana is well designed to accommodate large family groups — it is possibly the best place on Bali to bring someone with mobility issues — and the stunning spa pavilion is the perfect spot to enjoy a leisurely massage.

Villa Pushpapuri

Villa Pushpapuri

Indonesia » Bali » East Coast » Sanur-Ketewel

You cannot fail to enjoy Villa Pushpapuri – we certainly did during our stay. The staff were very helpful, the food was good and the setting superb. It was a real treat to be able to see and hear the sea from almost everywhere - by the fabulous swimming pool, at dinner (inside or out) or from most of the bedrooms. We also really enjoyed retiring to the underground bar in the evening for a beer and game of pool. The villa is only a few years old (2006) but the quality of finish is excellent and the maintenance first class which it has to be given its exposed coastal location. The gardens are a delight and the bright interiors very enjoyable. Villa Pushpapuri would make an excellent choice for families as there is a load to do.

Villa Samadhana

Villa Samadhana

Indonesia » Bali » East Coast » Sanur-Ketewel

The first thing we noticed on entering Villa Samadhana was the wide open space, rarely seen these days in the more popular tourist centres of Bali. The kids ran a good 70m sprint from the entrance up to the living area, across manicured lawns and past flowering trees. Being a family of four, we had our choice of three separate sleeping pavilions but, as our youngest still wakes in the night, we opted for the master suite so we could be close together. With a king-size bed in the sleeping chamber and upholstered couches in the adjoining sitting room, the kids were excited about sleeping in an unconventional, yet comfortable space – especially with access to their own 32-inch flat-screen television.

The owners obviously love to spend quality family time here and the poolside pavilion is a well thought out covered area that provides unlimited opportunities for action, relaxation and play for the entire group. With a 25m lap pool, generously sized shallow area for toddlers, inflatable pool toys and four umbrella-shaded sun loungers, this was our ‘go to’ spot each day after breakfast.

The butler and his attendants soon realised that our small, low maintenance group didn’t require them at our beck and call all day and discretely left us to our own devices until we needed them. However, the villa’s extensive amenities and big team of full time staff are perfect for large groups and special events such as weddings. And chef Wayan is a magician in the kitchen. He and his team took care of the grocery shopping before our arrival, based on our selections from the vast menu emailed to us. As a first night surprise for the kids we’d ordered ice cream sundaes and banana splits - the perfect treat before watching a family movie in the air-conditioned media room.

The Pabean Beach area serves up a refreshing slice of unhurried Balinese life. Our daily strolls to the beach provided glimpses of an authentic village lifestyle: local children laughing and playing on the glittering, black-sand beach, elderly men chatting beneath their shady roadside shelters and ibu (mothers) skilfully wielding long, skinny sticks to knock down frangipani blossoms for daily prayer offerings.

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 Leha Leha

Villa Leha Leha

Indonesia » Bali » East Coast » Sanur-Ketewel

Leha Leha is meticulously maintained, and looks as good as new despite it being ten years old. Granted the kitchen has been upgraded in the last two years but the rest of the villa is tidily kept, beautifully clean and the soft furnishings flush with colour. Judging by the photographs scattered around the property this is a cherished holiday home. It is independently run by the owner with the assistance of two resident managers in charge of handling guest relations both of whom we found to be polite, knowledgeable and able to speak good English. Pickups from the airport were included in the rate, and a car with driver (one of the managers) was available to us throughout our stay (first tank of petrol free). Since there are two master bedrooms, we felt this villa would be great for two families holidaying together as well as for groups of friends or one extended family. The dual storey pavilion certainly maximised living space, although in absence of ceiling fans the upper floor lounge tended to get quite hot during the day. The villa’s proficient resident cook offers Indonesian fare – though ordering in or dining out at one of Sanur’s many restaurants increases your options. It’s also possible to arrange for an Italian chef to cook for you at the villa, but fees are quite steep ($150-200 plus grocery costs), so we felt that this option might be best saved for a special occasion; that said, he is very highly recommended in the guest book so perhaps it’s worth the extra splurge!
