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 a really well-designed, well-furnished villa with a lot of extra details to ensure a comfortable, cossetted stay. With the pool area 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 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).

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.

Highlights

Considering Villa Kalimaya IV is a stone’s throw from Seminyak Square, we couldn’t believe the sheer amount of space we had to ourselves – and it was so quiet too. We loved the huge pool, and all the surprising extras such as Jacuzzi and infra-red sauna.
 

Surprises

There were surprises aplenty, all positive…. this three-bedroom villa is pretty near faultless

Incredible oasis in the hyper bustling Seminyak. Staff A++. Brilliant local tips, fabulous at organizing trips, always cheerful and great ambassadors. Villa is perfect and layout is super spacious. Spoil yourself at Bambu restaurant. Finns is luxurious. We walked although it was a looong walk. Thanks Lina and Alit and the family.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The hospitality and services of all the staff members were great and they ensured that all our needs and requests were made. The chef also did a fabulous job of making us some delicious Balinese food. Definitely a great spot and we will surely recommend to our family and friends. Happy new year to the Villa Kalimaya family.

The location of the villa is just amazing. Right in the middle of all the action but an oasis of calm in the heart of Seminyak. The contrast was simply unbelievable. The facilities and layout was lovely. The staff superlative. Available at all hours and always thinking ahead for anything we may need. Thank you Lina and team for giving us an unforgettable, relaxing and fun holiday. We felt really pampered here at Villa Kalimaya IV.

Our first surprise was how great the location of the villa was. The location is in the center of Seminyak and so close to everything. The staff are gentle and have been extremely helpful with absolutely everything. We got stuck during Volcanic activity and all of the staff were amazing at helping us get out. The villa was really lovely and had a traditional Balinese feel. Loved the pool. Thank you for having us.
