This luxury hillcrest villa packs a punch with its panoramic views across Jimbaran Bay. We soaked up the vista from Aiko’s infinity pool, second-level terraces, enormous find-me-if-you-can bed – even from our bathtub-for-two!

If you’re looking for traditional Bali-style architecture, Villa Aiko may not be your first choice. But while resolutely city-chic contemporary in design, the villa makes abundant use of natural materials in its construction - think reclaimed ironwood and river-stone walls, teakwood floors, Benkirai-wood decking and ironwood shingle roof. And the essence of Bali is evident in the charming and attentive-but-discreet staff.

The villa manager/executive chef Putu was an absolute treasure. He was completely unfazed by my vegetarian request and created a memorable dinner – spring rolls, pumpkin and basil soup, beetroot and orange appetiser, and Portobello mushrooms en croute with perfectly cooked vegetables and the best mashed potatoes in Bali. And his Eggs Florentine  – the egg poached to perfection, the Hollandaise cancelling days of dedicated Pilates practice – was a fabulous way to kick-start the morning. No wonder some guests stay away from Jimbaran Bay’s seafood restaurants and choose instead to eat in every day, as the visitor’s book attests.

We think Aiko would be a great villa for large family groups. There are so many independent seating areas to break away to for some peace and quiet, and it’s great to find a library in a Bali villa; we really appreciated the wide choice of books. Though all four bedrooms have king-size beds  – no twins – there’s a single bed discreetly designed into the foot of each bed. We thought the fourth bedroom might be best for kids (who tend not to be so view-hungry) as the outlook is partly blocked by the guest pavilion and spiral staircase. One note of caution: there are steep drops from the pool and terraces but, thankfully for parents, glass barriers line both second floor terraces.

Highlights

It was a struggle to stray from the master suite with its magnificent terrace. Taking a romantic candle-lit bath with the moon peeking through the glass ceiling takes some beating – only bettered when we raised the electric blinds to reveal the lights of Jimbaran shimmering in the distance. Drying off in the warm night air, stargazing from the terrace love seat was also pretty special. But Putu’s gourmet cooking was the icing on the cake!

Surprises

Considering the villa sleeps eight people – 12 if you count the additional single beds – we were surprised that there were only two sun-loungers by the pool. However there are recliners, loungers and beanbags on the guest room verandas and the upstairs terraces. The villa is totally air-conditioned, but we noted an absence of ceiling fans that could bother lovers of open-air living. Then again, we also noticed a continuous cool breeze so perhaps there’s no need for them. Finally, a small but irritating point for us was the awkward location of the room safe at the base of the wardrobe, necessitating an undignified scramble on hands and knees!

From the moment we planned and booked our trip, everything has been smooth and easy - including our request to celebrate a surprise 20th wedding anniversary dinner decoration/preparation and arranging cake etc. The staff has all been amazing - they really go out of their way to make us feel comfortable. Rooms are clean and cleaned up timely, food are prepared and chef has made very good meals for the family - we enjoyed them. Staff are very helpful and attentive to guests need which is a plus. All and all we had a wonderful time and enjoyed the service from the staff.

Thanks you very much for a restful and relaxing second half to our Bali holiday. The staff are very friendly and helpful but never intrusive. The villa itself is wonderful and we do hope that you never lose the views that you have towards the bay. Food was great and we enjoyed the combination of breakfast, lunch at the villa while mostly visiting restaurants in the area for our evening meals, we did enjoy the seafood barbecue at the villa too, of course!!

We were worried the children would get bored but there were enough TV sets around, a wonderful playground and a good collection of pool toys to occupancy their time.

Villa is completed in 2013 so the whole place still looks very new. Very awesome living space and bathrooms! My kids love the big bathtub especially. The play room is their next fave room! The pool is also not very deep (about 1.6m). The service of all the staffs (manager, house maids, chef and gardeners) all done a great job! We feel very at home and enjoyed the stay tremendously! Our friend who saw the photos of the villa that we've posted on Facebook were all wowed by its spaciousness and luxurity!

The villa was beautifully appointed and had everything we needed, right down to toys for the children to play with and pool equipment! The view was spectacular. The staff made our stay so enjoyable that we didn't really leave the villa much at all. The food cooked in the villa was excellent and even catered to our kids' every whim. Overall, a relaxing experience that our family will always remember.

Villa Aiko is strategically located to be close to stores and other attractions in Bali, and yet, still be far away to offer privacy and seclusion to the guests. But once you step in the villa, you will not want to step out! We felt that staying at least a week at Villa Aiko should be required. The staff can prepare a great seafood BBQ dinner which is at par, and even less expensive than going to Jimbaran Bay. All the jams and fruits are also freshly made which we really enjoyed. The villa is very modern, with TVs in each of the room, plus upper living room, air-conditioned bathrooms (with bathtubs) almost as big as the bedrooms, IPOD dock for your in house-entertainment, fully equipped children's room (toys, books and gadgets) and your own library (for some quiet time reading and relaxing). There's plenty of space to get the sun, from the loungers, to the jacuzzi up on deck, to the numerous seats and loungers on the upper floors. Over all, this villa will be great for couples, or families with young children.

Villa Aiko made my Bali trip a true holiday for the family. My family of 9 loved the size of the villa. Even though there were so many of us, but we all had our personal space and privacy. Bliss is lying on the bed in the room/pool side overlooking the sea view that the villa is able to offer. You absolutely need not need to look for other eateries, just have all your meals in the villa as the chef is amazing! Thank you for giving us such a memorable family holiday.

Nous avons séjourné dans la vila Aiko avec ma famille. La vue est magnifique, la piscine également. La villa est entièrement rénovée avec un mobilier de goût ainsi que des décorations d'objets d'arts locaux. La différence c'est le personnel, très attentionné, professionnel tout en sachant être discret. A voir absolument !

This is the perfect getaway property for those who want to be in a world of their own and not venture too far away. After 1 week in Ubud and a week in Seminyak this was what we needed to end our trip. Relaxation! We have recently stayed at Villa Aiko for 7 nights. We were 4 adults with 3 children. It was perfect place to sit back and relax. We only left the villa twice during our stay - otherwise we utilised all the property has to offer. The views from every room were amazing. The staff were very attentive to all our needs and the meals prepared by the in house chef/s were always very fresh and beautifully presented and of course tasted delicious. We ordered the seafood buffet twice during our stay. The children enjoyed the playroom and the library as well as the swimming pool. I can highly recommend this villa and will definitely be returning! Thank you to Butlers Putu & Wyan and the wonderful staff who made our experience at Villa Aiko so relaxing and enjoyable! We didn't want to leave!

8.75 out of 10
based on 56 user reviews. This luxury hillcrest villa packs a punch with its panoramic views across Jimbaran Bay. We soaked up the vista from Aiko’s infinity pool, second-level terraces, enormous find-me-if-you-can bed – even from our bathtub-for-two!

If you’re looking for traditional Bali-style architecture, Villa Aiko may not be your first choice. But while resolutely city-chic contemporary in design, the villa makes abundant use of natural materials in its construction - think reclaimed ironwood and river-stone walls, teakwood floors, Benkirai-wood decking and ironwood shingle roof. And the essence of Bali is evident in the charming and attentive-but-discreet staff.

The villa manager/executive chef Putu was an absolute treasure. He was completely unfazed by my vegetarian request and created a memorable dinner – spring rolls, pumpkin and basil soup, beetroot and orange appetiser, and Portobello mushrooms en croute with perfectly cooked vegetables and the best mashed potatoes in Bali. And his Eggs Florentine  – the egg poached to perfection, the Hollandaise cancelling days of dedicated Pilates practice – was a fabulous way to kick-start the morning. No wonder some guests stay away from Jimbaran Bay’s seafood restaurants and choose instead to eat in every day, as the visitor’s book attests.

We think Aiko would be a great villa for large family groups. There are so many independent seating areas to break away to for some peace and quiet, and it’s great to find a library in a Bali villa; we really appreciated the wide choice of books. Though all four bedrooms have king-size beds  – no twins – there’s a single bed discreetly designed into the foot of each bed. We thought the fourth bedroom might be best for kids (who tend not to be so view-hungry) as the outlook is partly blocked by the guest pavilion and spiral staircase. One note of caution: there are steep drops from the pool and terraces but, thankfully for parents, glass barriers line both second floor terraces.
