This stunning contemporary villa, with its sensational setting, is as far south as you can get in Bali.  All that lies between Villa Hamsa and Australia is a lot of glittering ocean!

We absolutely loved the master bedroom pavilion, which has the best views from its enormous deck – our favourite hang-out where we lazed away many an hour, mesmerised by the waves gently rolling in some 80 metres below.  (At certain times of the year, whales have been spotted from these cliffs; we noticed the occasional kayaker from Pandawa beach, and at night tracked spear fishermen by their lights flashing in the shallows).  The ocean view from our insanely sized 2.4-metre bed was just as amazing – and thanks to floor-to-ceiling doors opening straight onto the pool; we could jump in the deep end just paces from our bed. (Sleepwalkers be warned: close those doors at night!)

In the evening the chef prepared a delicious dinner for us that was more than a match for Bali’s celebrity restaurants.  Given the villa’s semi-remote setting – definitely no restaurants within running distance – in-villa food commands centre-stage, and this highly talented chef certainly made sure we happily stayed put rather than head out to the seafood restaurants of Jimbaran or Nusa Dua!

Though this is a four-bedroom villa that can accommodate up to 10, its layout is such that it would equally suit a couple seeking extra privacy and space; they would be very comfortable here without feeling they were rattling around, as the other three bedrooms are hidden out of sight below the pool and master pavilion – you hardly notice them.

Highlights

The spectacular ocean view from the master pavilion’s large deck is a show-stopper for us; it’s the best spot on the estate! This is a thoroughly elegant villa, and I liked the cleanness of the design and colour palette.  Best of all was the fantastic chef who made sure we had no call whatsoever to leave the villa!

Surprises

While it’s clear a lot of attention has been paid to Villa Hamsa’s interior design, we did feel that comfort may have played second fiddle to aesthetics in some instances.  We would have loved the chance to siesta in a comfortable chair on the master bedroom deck, for example, and though the two sun loungers by the pool were perfect for us, a full house might wish for more.   There’s no kitchen at present, but who on earth would want to cook for themselves with Chef Nur around! At the time of our visit (April 2017), a villa was being built next door; it didn’t disturb us, but I can imagine that privacy on the master bedroom deck could be affected at certain times of the day.

We stayed at one villa and loved it so much, we cancelled our next villa to stay at the adjoining villa. The entire complex is beautifully fitted out, the staff are so friendly and helpful and the BBQ'S were amazing. Thank you for making this trip so special.
