Villa Kelusa is magical, and we feel really privileged to have stayed there.  When we first walked through the entrance and into the living pavilion we could hardly believe our eyes – the views are simply the best we’ve ever come across in Bali, and the way the landscape changed with each shift in the light was bewitching.  After a stunning crimson sunset, fireflies glowed in the darkness, the Southern Cross twinkled high above, and flashes of lighting in the far distance revealed fleeting glimpses of Bali’s mystical mountains on the horizon.  Then pulling back our bedroom curtains in the morning, we counted nine volcanoes hovering above the gossamer mist that carpeted the valley below.

We loved the layout of Villa Kelusa, which works wonderfully for multi-generation families and groups of friends who like to be together but still have space to spread their wings.  We haven’t come across another villa that accords such privacy and space for four bedrooms, and with three separate living areas and two swimming pools, even a crowd could get lost here.

While we retreated to the fabulous master bedroom of Pondok Sapi, a contemporary glass cube with fabulous views, our honeymooning friends loved the privacy of Pondok Surya, whose romantic bedroom, starting-within-the-living-room infinity pool and sensual double bathtub were much appreciated!

A special thank you to Wayan Sudana, the villa manager, who was a fount of information and enriched our stay. His delightful team hails from the local village, and many have been attached to the house from the beginning.  We’re just thankful the owner decided to share her delightful Bali home with us!

Highlights

Our entire stay was one continuing highlight – the sheer amount of living space, sense of privacy, interior décor, the staff…. and that sensational view with its ever-shifting moods and light.  And we all fell for Poo the villa’s affectionate blind poodle!

Surprises

With an infinity pool flowing right into the living room, I would be nervous about accommodating very young kids in the downstairs bedroom of Pondok Surya.  And parents would need to keep a close eye on kids inclined to wander, as there’s little separating the garden from the rice terraces beyond the estate.  But all our other surprises were good ones.
