Villa Adasa

Villa Adasa

Indonesia » Bali » Greater Seminyak » Seminyak

I’m moving in! Put it another way, I don’t want to leave Villa Adasa, ever. Within moments of our arrival, the sounds of the gamelan gave way to early Dylan rasping from the Sonos sound system. How did they KNOW he’s this reviewer’s all-time favourite? Mind-reading was clearly second nature for Villa Adasa’s staff, who seemed to know what we wanted before we did, but were just as adept at giving us complete privacy when that was called for too. While this is a great villa for a family as well as for friends/couples sharing, Villa Adasa manages to achieve a rare intimacy that would make it equally appealing to a couple looking to splurge on space. Villa Adasa delights 24/7. Daytime, we were faced with the taxing decision of whether to dive into an ocean of colourful cushions carpeting the double bale (gazebo), relax on the loungers by the pool, strip to bare essentials on the sun-deck above, or remain supine on the myriad sofas in the living pavilion. At sundown it was no contest; the best place to soak up Bali’s famous purple-hued sunset was from the loveseat on the master bedroom loggia. The night-time atmosphere at Villa Adasa is charming, thanks to its clever ambient lighting and comfortable living area. So dining presented us with an equally weighty dilemma: Do we select from the excellent menu and have our accomplished villa chef whip up a five-course meal or seafood barbecue for us, or do we wander out and take our pick from the many world-class restaurants within moments of the villa? We loved hanging out in the huge master bedroom suite and enjoyed the best night’s sleep thanks to a fabulously comfy bed, luxury goose-down duvet and pillows and high thread-count cotton sateen bed linen. The Sonos music system was swish, and being able to control it from our phone and laptop was pretty cool. And it was heaven having such a wonderful library of coffee table books and glossy magazines to browse. All in all, staying here was like breathing pure oxygen — I was on a permanent health-inducing ‘high’ throughout our all-too-short-stay.

Villa Aiko

Villa Aiko

Indonesia » Bali » Jimbaran - Bukit » Jimbaran

This luxury hillcrest villa packs a punch with its panoramic views across Jimbaran Bay. We soaked up the vista from Aiko’s infinity pool, second-level terraces, enormous find-me-if-you-can bed – even from our bathtub-for-two!

If you’re looking for traditional Bali-style architecture, Villa Aiko may not be your first choice. But while resolutely city-chic contemporary in design, the villa makes abundant use of natural materials in its construction - think reclaimed ironwood and river-stone walls, teakwood floors, Benkirai-wood decking and ironwood shingle roof. And the essence of Bali is evident in the charming and attentive-but-discreet staff.

The villa manager/executive chef Putu was an absolute treasure. He was completely unfazed by my vegetarian request and created a memorable dinner – spring rolls, pumpkin and basil soup, beetroot and orange appetiser, and Portobello mushrooms en croute with perfectly cooked vegetables and the best mashed potatoes in Bali. And his Eggs Florentine  – the egg poached to perfection, the Hollandaise cancelling days of dedicated Pilates practice – was a fabulous way to kick-start the morning. No wonder some guests stay away from Jimbaran Bay’s seafood restaurants and choose instead to eat in every day, as the visitor’s book attests.

We think Aiko would be a great villa for large family groups. There are so many independent seating areas to break away to for some peace and quiet, and it’s great to find a library in a Bali villa; we really appreciated the wide choice of books. Though all four bedrooms have king-size beds  – no twins – there’s a single bed discreetly designed into the foot of each bed. We thought the fourth bedroom might be best for kids (who tend not to be so view-hungry) as the outlook is partly blocked by the guest pavilion and spiral staircase. One note of caution: there are steep drops from the pool and terraces but, thankfully for parents, glass barriers line both second floor terraces.

Villa Anucara

Villa Anucara

Indonesia » Bali » Canggu area » Seseh-Tanah Lot

Villa Anucara’s stark, modernist design may not suit everyone — stripped of its Indonesian artefacts, it could be at home in Miami, Monaco or any number of expensive beachside playgrounds. But this reviewer swooned over the purity of the design, pleasing symmetry, and sense of space and light. The white and ivory colours splashed with aqua create a restful and restorative palette to counter the rectilinear strictness of the architecture. We liked the counterbalance of avant garde with antique, the textural play with Palimanan stone, teakwood planks, polished concrete, fossilized wood, gnarled tree roots and granite. And we loved the artistic flourishes and deliciously thought out details.

One overlooked detail, however, was the choice of cut flowers in every room: the garishly coloured marigolds seemed out of place in such sophisticated surroundings (even the flowers in the garden are all pure white). But this small ‘peeve’ will easily dissipate when the owner’s impeccable taste directs the staff’s flower arranging skills. (And let’s face it, how uptight do you have to be to even notice!)

Unusually, those who don’t draw straws for the master suites will not feel short-changed. (Magnificent though our master suite was, we would have been delighted to stay in guestroom 3 with its shaded grove of palms and its stunning outdoor bathroom with monsoon shower arch and lava-stone wall of water cascading down to a sunken hamam-style bath.) In this respect the villa is highly suited to groups of friends and families — who will also appreciate the many private spaces that allow for quiet as well as social holiday time. We would perhaps be nervous of bringing very young children here because of the stretches of unfenced water, unguarded stairs and upper deck, but note that baby cots and high chairs can be provided; indeed the party before us included several toddlers — and they stayed for a month!

Villa Arika

Villa Arika

Indonesia » Bali » Canggu area » Canggu

For those who love the ocean (like us), there are few experiences that can match staying right on the beach – especially in a spacious and luxurious tropical villa – so Villa Arika definitely ticked all our boxes. The views are quintessential Bali; everything we expected and more – especially from the master bedroom, which has a lovely private deck. With the huge lawns, the rugged coastline in both directions, and the ocean stretching to the horizon, there is a fabulous feeling of space and openness. Landscaping is thoughtful, with rounded garden beds that mimic the curves of the shore and are filled with low shrubs that complement, rather than distract from the ocean views.

We quickly adapted to the rhythms of nature – lounging by the pool, exploring rock pools on the beach exposed at low tide, languishing in the flamboyant sunsets. Evenings had their own gentle allure with the soft glow of candles and hurricane lanterns. Dinners at the wonderful marble dining table were particularly memorable, surrounded by magically lit lily ponds. Pererenan is delightfully sleepy and serene, and most of the time we were really happy just to chill at the villa and relax, but it was great to have a driver on hand  when we managed to tear ourselves away.

Arnalaya Beach House

Arnalaya Beach House

Indonesia » Bali » Canggu area » Canggu

Five minutes after our arrival at Arnalaya Beach House we felt we had found our place in the world! Lovers of light, bright homes will love this villa.  Each room has floor-to-ceiling sliding glass doors on two walls, which bathe it in an orgy of natural sunlight.

The staff are very professional and it was the talented chef himself who served our delicious meals, giving us an explanation of the magic he had worked in the kitchen on our behalf.

The bedrooms have a double set of blinds to keep out the morning sun, making it very tempting to sleep with the doors open, listening to the sound of the sea.  With a three-man security team on the premises, you can rest perfectly at ease.

Don’t come here expecting to get any work done.  A stay at Arnalaya Beach House is all about enjoying yourself – with a bit of tennis, a gym workout and a spa treatment thrown into the mix – while letting the ‘rhythm of the waves’ wash over you.

Villa Asante

Villa Asante

Indonesia » Bali » Canggu area » Canggu

Architecturally simple yet eminently comfortable, Villa Asante makes a great holiday pad for a couple of families. The layout is very practical, especially the open sided common areas which flow so well to the pool. It is commendable that the owners have resisted the temptation to build a mega-villa on what is quite a big plot – resulting in much more open space to relax and for kids to run around in. The pool is superb, with shallow sections for toddlers and practical decking which is not slippery even with wet feet (unlike the terrazzo floors). It could do with a little more shade although there are sun umbrellas and a very pleasant balé. Bedrooms are practical and comfortable too, and the bathrooms really are very good, especially the downstairs ones with outside showers and walled gardens. On a recent re-visit we found the (now much more experienced) staff to be superb and the food conjured up by the chef to be tasty, if a little pricey.

Villa Asta

Villa Asta

Indonesia » Bali » Greater Seminyak » Seminyak

Of all the villas we’ve reviewed in Bali, Villa Asta is tops for families and kids. Never have we seen a villa so well set up for children’s entertainment, and with separate zones so that the adults (and kids) can escape from one another. It is no surprise that it's often booked for months in advance and guests return each year. The Guy Morgan-designed villa is full of common sense but without skimping on the luxury. In the three-bedroom pavilion, many guests will appreciate the flexibility of the bed configurations. Do note that whilst we rave about Villa Asta for families – these bedrooms are excellent for adults too, so the villa would work well for groups. The private plunge pools beside the master bedrooms’ pavilion are a gorgeous plus. Overall we found the villa to be a very bubbly and happy place, from the excellent staff who served us a wonderful barbecue during our inspection, down to the super friendly (and very fat!) koi fish, which are a great source of entertainment and fun to feed. What is also special about Villa Asta is the lovely stonework and thatch, which left us in no doubt that we were in Bali. When we revisited the property recently, we found that it has been immaculately maintained, with some new upholstered furnishings, a new marble floor, and upgraded facilities such as flat-screen TVs, computer and printer for guest use, and the addition of four bicycles.
