Villa Banteng Bawah makes a lovely tropical outdoor-living holiday home. We found ourselves spending most of our time in the pool – which was really just an extension of the living room and the master bedroom. The setting was so relaxed – nothing overstated or pretentious – that we felt at home straight away.

At first glance the villa seemed a little sparse, but the lack of clutter quickly made sense as it left nothing to distract us from the charming pool setting or the rice paddy views beyond the villa walls. The constant play of light added rich texture and dimension; from bright sunlight on the timber decks, to dappled rays filtering through the latticed ceiling over the sunken lounge, and the contrast of light and shade in the garden. Night times were particularly alluring with evocative cut stone lamps, dangling lanterns and spotlights on the shimmering pool. The main garden isn’t huge, but the space is well utilised with soft velvety grass, hanging pot plants dangling from the frangipani trees and views extending to the rice fields. The master bedroom was very comfortable, a cool and cosy space with the curtains shut at night time, and in the mornings we could swing back the doors and dive straight into the pool. Perfect! The wonderful ensuite bathroom with its vibrant courtyard garden also deserves a mention.

Highlights

The Sulawesi bedroom pavilion, with its wooden walls and scenic views, is lovely and we enjoyed watching movies in the sunken lounge at night time. This villa is very comfortable and great value.

Surprises

Floors are a little slippery when wet, so take care when getting out of the pool. The villa’s location initially seemed a bit remote, but once we got our bearings we realised it was actually very convenient, and enjoyed exploring the local area and being beyond the main tourist fringe.
