Des Indes I

Des Indes I

Indonesia » Bali » Greater Seminyak » Seminyak

Our 2017 re-inspection of Villa Des Indes I revealed an immaculate, eclectic home that has been lovingly furnished by its owners to celebrate the rich heritage of Indonesia through a fine collection of antiques, artefacts, curios, local artwork, colonial prints and classic sculptures. The villa is a true delight, enhanced by its central location but very quiet and private feel. Once inside you are truly in your own world and, given the very gracious staff, a wonderfully enjoyable one at that. The chef prepared an excellent and beautifully presented meal during our stay – the Dory dish and ikan lilit (fish satay) were delicious; so it’s easy to imagine a full-blown dinner party in this gorgeous setting, illuminated by scores of flickering candles. Des Indes I will delight families and groups who appreciate being surrounded by a sense of history alongside the villa’s many contemporary luxuries.

In our opinion, it is still one of the most unique East-meets-West, old-meets-new villas in Bali.

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 LeGa

Villa LeGa

Indonesia » Bali » Greater Seminyak » Seminyak

Returning to Villa LeGa recently, almost everything was the same as it was the last time.  And by that we mean, fantastic! The staff remembered us from our last visit and it felt a bit like coming home.  There is a new beach club and restaurant next door now, but the noise was not really noticeable. On the few occasions when they have a special events going on, we suspect that villa guests will probably be dancing along with the best of them! And as they offer a permanent discount to villa guests, it’s a win–win situation.  The villa now boasts a new rooftop deck right at the front of the property, with sun loungers and umbrellas that look straight out to sea.  All very Ibiza and la de dah.  We love it! LeGa is not only a stunning property, but it boasts a fabulous location and comes with an excellent staff team who were very good at anticipating our needs before we had even knew them ourselves. There is a good menu too with an excellent choice of western fusion cuisine.  Whilst the interiors of LeGa are stylish and beautifully arranged, the property still feels very homely. The ground floor living areas spill onto the swimming pool terrace and, as such, are very sociable, as is the whole villa; it feels fun, young and sophisticated.  My favourite spot was the upper-floor terrace with its great views over the beach and sea.  It’s a fab venue for cocktails at sunset. The villa might not have a lot of outside space, but what there is works well and the gardens are meticulously maintained; wander beyond the villa and you have the whole beach to explore.

Villa Lilibel

Villa Lilibel

Indonesia » Bali » Greater Seminyak » Seminyak

If you’re looking for a really central base in Seminyak, there are few villas better located than Villa Lilibel. Not only can you walk to the beach and a host of restaurants from here, but the villa is also well laid out, well staffed and brilliantly sized. Living areas are huge and very sociable, yet you can also find corners for peace and privacy if you so desire. The master bedroom was much larger than the other bedrooms and its bathroom easily the most decadent. We thought the other ensuites were perhaps a little dated and not so well lit.

And much as we might frown upon such unsocial holiday behaviour, this villa is a TV addict’s dream, with TVs in the main living room, media room (plus sets in all of the six bedrooms) - The three bedrooms off the villa’s entrance courtyard were the quietest and the ground floor rooms would be good for sleeping kids and elderly rellies. We liked the different dining options at the villa: the barbecue terrace is a very sociable venue for long balmy evenings spent dining, wining and chatting. The staff proudly told us that Villa Lilibel’s barbecued pork ribs are a bit of an institution. Unfortunately, we didn’t get the chance to try them on this visit!

There’s a reasonably priced menu at Lilibel and a choice of breakfast is included in the rate. The chances are that with so many great restaurants on your doorstep you’ll be eating out much of the time too. The staff were friendly and attentive; there was always someone around when we needed them and they were quick in preparing our meals and drinks. We were impressed with the kitchen too as it was so well-equipped. Keen cooks would be happy here, and all of the provisioning can be left to the staff.

Villa Lulito

Villa Lulito

Indonesia » Bali » Greater Seminyak » Seminyak

Our stay at Villa Lulito was a delight on so many levels. From the moment we arrived and were greeted by the staff with cold towels and even colder drinks, and then saw just how lovely the villa is with all its many corners to relax, play and spread out, we knew we were in for a great holiday.


We spent a lot of time in and around the pool and were able to follow the arc of the sun all day long simply by moving from sun lounger to daybed. The pool toys also got a lot of use – especially the crocodile – as did the pool lounge and the palm-shaded garden table. During an afternoon tea break up on the first floor balcony, we enjoyed a nosy look out over the roofs and gardens of the other luxury villas in the neighbourhood.


The bedrooms were fantastic: mini sanctuaries where one could retire any time of the day, close the curtains, turn on the air-conditioning and have a beautiful guilt-free nap in a really comfortable bed.


A big shout out goes to the staff, who were a real delight and took care of us beyond expectations. We happily let them ply us with fresh drinks, fantastic gourmet meals (a special thank you to the chef), lots of useful advice about Bali and big friendly smiles all round.


Being in the heart of Seminyak gave us easy access to all the great restaurants and bars that we have been hearing about, and we were able simply to stroll up the street to indulge our passions for all things food and drink, including great coffees and brunches at Sea Circus and Petitenget Café. The burgers at WahWah, right outside the front door, make the best takeaway ever (pricy but so delicious), and as for our delectable dining experiences at Sarong, Teatro and Merah Putih . . . say no more. We especially loved sunset drinks at Ku de Ta. So close! And having the beach less than a five-minute walk away was a dream.

Villa Oost Indies

Villa Oost Indies

Indonesia » Bali » Greater Seminyak » Seminyak

With its lush tropical gardens and vintage design, Villa Oost Indies provides a breath of fresh air in Seminyak – both literally and metaphorically.  Recent years have seen land prices soar in this vibrant neighbourhood, so newer villas tend to have little or no garden.  They also tend to be quite modern and minimalist in style, so it’s lovely to have the chance to stay somewhere that is so unashamedly colonial in design.  We liked the sense of space created by a generous lawn and found the courtyard gardens totally enchanting with their sprawling pandanus palms, leafy ferns and palm trees grafted with purple orchids. 

We always love exploring Seminyak, and checking out all the new restaurants and bars, so the location was perfect – and so close to the beach too!   Yet we equally liked being able to escape to such a peaceful haven.  The spacious bedrooms, with their sitting rooms and beautiful bathrooms, added to the sense of getting away from it all, and definitely make up for the smallish living room pavilion.  While we don’t have kids, we could see how conducive Oost Indies is to families, with plenty of space for kids to play, and convenient sofa beds in the sitting rooms, which can sleep a child.  The option of twin beds in the third bedroom also no doubt comes in handy.

The staff are wonderful and were a definite highlight of our stay at Villa Oost Indies.  Their traditional welcome and the sense of warmth and inclusion perfectly fits the colonial style of the villa.  We felt more like honoured guests than paying customers and nothing was too much trouble.

Villa Ramadewa

Villa Ramadewa

Indonesia » Bali » Greater Seminyak » Seminyak

Villa Ramadewa is an absolutely stunning in-town villa which has clearly had much care and attention lavished on it by its owner. The details are delightful as are the staff who we found worked very hard to provide a warm and professional service.

This villa would be ideal for a family given its central location, and if you really can’t escape work whilst on holiday - the study set up and connectivity here is ideal. The bedrooms and bathrooms are exquisite and the pool is a delight. The owner and architect should be commended for creating a real oasis in the centre of Seminyak.

Returning to Ramadewa after three years, we were delighted to find that the villa had been impeccably maintained, the garden is looking colourful and beautiful, and the wine room has been kept fully stocked with an excellent selection of wines, Champagnes and spirits. The owner is, after all, a perfectionist!

Villa Coco Groove

Villa Coco Groove

Indonesia » Bali » Greater Seminyak » Seminyak

Villa Coco Groove boasts chic, minimalist tropical living in a spacious garden setting. We found the villa to be very peaceful considering it’s situation in a compact residential area, near to Seminyak’s restaurant and shopping districts. The grassed coconut grove and large swimming pool provided an attractive focal point for our days of relaxation and we agreed that the vast gardens (a rarity for villas in this sought-after area), make Coco Groove a great place for functions and parties, or for families with kids who need lots of space to let of steam. Really, this villa is suitable for all age groups and offers exceptional value for money.

The villa is a fabulous blend of old and new. We particularly liked the Sarawak theme in the lounge; the back wall is adorned with baby carriers, masks, parang knives, oars and blowpipes of ethnic groups from the Borneo region, such as the Dayak, Iban and Orang Ulu. You can read all about them in a number of the books found in a small, but eclectic library in the master bedroom. Whilst the TV lounge is functional, the small screen and limited seating engineers it more towards a reading room or study (there are no TVs in the bedrooms either).

We found the staff (total seven) professional, friendly and speak good English. They live out, however hours are flexible depending on your needs, and with three security guards there is always someone on hand. Babysitters and masseurs are available on request at additional charge. The chef excelled in all the meals he prepared for us. You can choose from an extensive suggestion menu and the staff will do the provisioning (a small charge is made to cover petrol). A well-thought-out information book informs you of the day-to-day operations of the villa and recommends day trips which can be arranged by the staff, whilst also giving great advice on local attractions.

Villa Sipo

Villa Sipo

Indonesia » Bali » Greater Seminyak » Seminyak

If, like us, you enjoy being close to the action but also being able to withdraw to a peaceful haven when the mood strikes, then Villa Sipo is the place for you. Quietly and securely situated within the Sentosa Villa estate, and yet only minutes away from Bali’s most fashionable playground, we definitely enjoyed the best of both worlds here. This is a sociable, easy-to-live-in villa. We found ourselves comfortably spread out, with the teenagers lazing on loungers by the main pool, dads reading the newspaper over a coffee at the breakfast bar or catching up on the news in the study/TV room, mum’s reading up on shopping options under the garden balé but all still very much together and enjoying the villa equally.

The well-equipped kitchen is incredibly enticing so, despite the talents of the villa chef (who sensibly suggested we order our meals a day-ahead and leave him to go out and buy the groceries with a cash float from us to cover the cost), you may find yourself tempted to go shopping at one of a handful of nearby deli’s (Bali deli, Grocer & Grind or The Bali Catering Co deli) and do it yourself (with someone else to wash the dishes of course) – at least for one or two nights during your stay.

The staff are ever smiling and ready to serve whilst also being discreetly unobtrusive which was also a big plus for us. We imagine that with everything Sipo has to offer, both within the villa and on its doorstep, it will get many repeat guests.
