First impressions always count for a lot, and as the heavy antique doors of Villa De Suma swung back we were greeted with an atmospheric scene.  Late afternoon sunlight rippled across the swimming pool, filtered through the frangipani trees, and shone in dappled waves on the vertical gardens that cling to the villa’s soaring walls.  Staff welcomed us with flower leis, iced towels and glasses of fresh coconut water.  As darkness descended, candles were lit beside the pool and, inside, clusters of tall glass hurricane lanterns shone warmly.  We were utterly enchanted!

We loved the juxtaposition of modern luxury and traditional romance at Villa De Suma.  Our creature comforts were well attended to, with iPod docks and Bose speakers beside the beds, the crispest of linens, and the sleekest of bathrooms.  Yet the collection of antiques, Chinese silk paintings and ethnic curios never let us forget that we were in a villa in beautiful Bali.  Land is of a premium in these parts but the clever design created a delicious sense of space and the pool stretched enticingly from one bedroom pavilion to the other.

The villa setting is so peaceful that it seemed hard to believe we were right in the middle of Seminyak, and I mean right in the middle!  We would be lying by the pool one minute, and the next sipping cocktails at Potato Head or browsing the boutiques of Oberoi.  I also have to mention the chef, he’s really good!  We will never forget his extravagant tropical breakfasts, Indonesian feasts and the sublime pineapple crumble.

Highlights

Aesthetically speaking, this is a really beautiful, thoughtfully designed villa that was a pleasure to stay in.  We loved the touch of old world glamour and the privacy afforded by such big bedrooms.  As for location, well if you want to be in Seminyak, it probably doesn’t get any better!

Surprises

Fishponds and a big swimming pool mean you will have to keep an eye on toddlers, but it’s also possible to organise a pool fence.

We've had a wonderful stay at Villa De Suma. The location, villa and staff have all been amazing. We are sad to be leaving today. Wish we could stay a little longer and soak up more of the relaxing Balinese lifestyle. Alas until next time, we'll be back for sure. Thank you again.

Late decision to come to Bali turned out to be the best solution ever, what a beautiful land and friendly people. Villa De Suma has been perfect for our birthday gang, we have enjoyed the excellent service of the wonderful staff. We have enjoyed a couple of dinners and a full breakfast everyday. Everyone has been so helpful making all arrangements including car service, restaurant bookings, laundry etc. There is probably no way want to espresso our thanks enough. We are so happy that we come our 1st visit to Bali could not have been more perfect. Thank you Villa De Suma and staff.

As mums who love and care for our own families and cater to their every need, our week has been the best taste of our own medicine! Thank you for everything!

We have had a fantastic time in Bali, we are very sad to leave De Suma which has been a second home. The turtle is very cute and friendly. We love how there are fish under your feet when you walk into down stair room. The pool is great size not to deep for the little ones. Service is amazing and always so kind - every time we walk into our villa. Thank you for an amazing stay!
