There’s something very special about Bali-living when you know that beyond the garden walls are only acres of rice fields and greener than green countryside. Villa Atacaya rests in a patch of south-west Bali that is (so far) only sporadically dotted with villas and villages, so we knew we were in for the privileged private country life when we arrived. We were not let down. This is a big, modern villa with plenty of space and contemporary design (predominantly in white with colour-themed bedrooms) that is absorbed immediately by the artwork of nature found in the forest and river that borders its eastern flank. Instant peace and serenity… if you like the constant hum of cicadas and birds, that is. We do. There’s a cooling breeze coming off the river and the pool is always at the perfect temperature for a dip. The local area is very rural and it’s worth taking the time to go out for a stroll through the rice fields, coconut groves and villages to fully absorb your surroundings. We walked down to the beach (3km) at sunset and sat on a bluff above the black sands and crashing waves with a coke and a coffee bought from one if the local warungs. Highly recommended! The service of a car and driver is a thoughtful provision in this remote location should you wish to go further afield. Please note that this villa is not suitable for toddlers due to the water gardens.

Highlights

Ahhhh the serenity. Villa Atacaya is such a peaceful oasis with only the river, the birds, the insects and the frogs providing the soundtrack. The hanging garden, alfresco bathtub, water features and chic interiors all deserve a mention, while the Indonesian nasi campur that we ordered for dinner was one of the best we’ve ever had – the chef is a master indeed.

Surprises

Mind your footing (especially when wet) on the polished concrete floors! The TV room set up is a little strange: a 54-inch TV in a very narrow air-con room doesn’t really make for decent viewing. However, if fan-cooled air is enough for you, open the doors and use the lounge space (complete with surround sound), and you’ll be loving it. Bring your sunglasses as the predominantly white design can get a bit glary.

Thank you for a fantastic stay at Villa Atacaya. I'm so pleased that we choose this fabulous venue for our Easter break. I will never tire of the view of the river and trees, the accommodation is purposeful and comfortable. We will definitely be back. Huge thanks to the team who looked after us so well, great food, safe driving, a fabulous walk through rice fields and lot of great advice. The villa was well looked after whilst we were here, and this all made for a most relaxing break. We felt very welcome and relaxed and look forward to a return visit.

The villa is very nice and the staff is very welcoming and nice and the meals are very yummy. The rooms are great. This is the most amazing villa - something by a Holywood film set in Bali Paradise! Thanks to the wonderful staff who looked after us all (11!) so well, Explain the high tech's of the astonishing hi-fi system. and cooked us great meals. It is very rare for all our family to be together. So when it happens, it's always so special. But this time has been the best ever! Such a beautiful location, but most of all you wonderful hospitality and kindness towards us. We will all remember this holiday.

We very much enjoyed our stay at Villa Atacaya and booked the villa for our wedding, we rented both Iskandar and Atacaya which were right next to each other and great for group bookings. We held our wedding ceremony in the lovely area by the river which held 50 people and our wedding reception in the larger area by the pool. The venue was stunning and our guests loved it also. The staff were were exceptional and assisted the vendors set up for the day. The villa itself is located in the rice fields and was very peaceful, relaxing and great to get out of the busy areas of Seminyak for a few days and see the real Bali. The service was outstanding as staff were always willing to help and create the most enjoyable experience possible. We would love to visit the villa again!
