Villa Arimbi

Villa Arimbi

Indonesia » Bali » East Coast » Sanur-Ketewel

The tranquil, stylish, and warmly welcoming Villa Arimbi has such an astonishing mix of design elements and detail that words cannot do it justice. Indeed, this villa has been showcased in design books and several magazine features since emerging from an extensive renovation in 2010.

Relaxation and pampering were what we sought during our stay, and Arimbi's staff and setting deliver these in spades. The landscaped gardens are incredibly beautiful, lovingly cared for and completely private. We spent a lot of time in the sumptuously furnished, open-air living and lounge rooms, just drinking in the tropical scene – when we weren't cooling off in the fabulous pool and jacuzzi that is. The staff’s dedication to keeping the garden and rooms in pristine condition is evident throughout – we watched in amazement as Handy, the villa manager, spent several minutes arranging the leaves and flowers of a small tree just so.

Revisiting Arimbi in April 2014, we were delighted to find the villa looking as pristine and stylish as ever, with the same excellent staff, including Handy who remembered us and welcomed us as old friends! We had little desire to venture far from the villa but we did enjoy walks to Sanur beach which, while perhaps not one of Bali's cleanest, is a great spot to enjoy a cold Bintang while watching local people of all ages at play. We were particularly captivated by the sight of one large family engaged in a group meditation session, with an elaborate arrangement of flowers and fruit set on the sands in offering to the gods.

Citakara Sari

Citakara Sari

Indonesia » Bali » East Coast » Candidasa

Citakara Sari is a destination property with plenty of things to do and see without ever having to leave; the sports oriented amenities are plentiful, including what could easily be the best private tennis court on this side of the island. Open space is the luxury here, both within and outside the villa compound. And it’s refreshing to experience traditional Indonesian architecture; the heavy wood-influenced style may not appeal to contemporary design aficionados, but the owners did their homework and hired a competent contractor to help modernize the antique house by adding white drop ceilings, light Palimanan stone flooring and plenty of Japanese inspired sliding glass doors to bring in the natural light and showcase the views.

One of the first things we wanted to check off our agenda was snorkelling so, using the villa’s masks and snorkels, we walked down the boat ramp and waded easily into the ocean. We were a little disappointed at first as the area right in front of the villa is pretty lifeless, but around the 50m mark we hit a reef covered in coral fingers that extended as far as we could go along the coast. Not the super-colourful stuff that can be found in Amed, but lots of aquarium-worthy fish nonetheless. Afterwards, we lounged on the villa’s rare patch of black and white sandy beach that’s revealed at low tide.

The sun was almost down and having rinsed off at the outside pool shower and grabbed a cold Bintang beer from the fridge, we decided to have dinner in the poolside pavilion instead of the main dining area. The lightly fried salt and pepper chicken was a favourite with the kids, and the plump chicken sate (a staple dish in Bali) accompanied by mild tomato sambal and a peanut sauce with a kick, worked to give us a flavour of the region's cuisine.

Villa Leha Leha

Villa Leha Leha

Indonesia » Bali » East Coast » Sanur-Ketewel

Leha Leha is meticulously maintained, and looks as good as new despite it being ten years old. Granted the kitchen has been upgraded in the last two years but the rest of the villa is tidily kept, beautifully clean and the soft furnishings flush with colour. Judging by the photographs scattered around the property this is a cherished holiday home. It is independently run by the owner with the assistance of two resident managers in charge of handling guest relations both of whom we found to be polite, knowledgeable and able to speak good English. Pickups from the airport were included in the rate, and a car with driver (one of the managers) was available to us throughout our stay (first tank of petrol free). Since there are two master bedrooms, we felt this villa would be great for two families holidaying together as well as for groups of friends or one extended family. The dual storey pavilion certainly maximised living space, although in absence of ceiling fans the upper floor lounge tended to get quite hot during the day. The villa’s proficient resident cook offers Indonesian fare – though ordering in or dining out at one of Sanur’s many restaurants increases your options. It’s also possible to arrange for an Italian chef to cook for you at the villa, but fees are quite steep ($150-200 plus grocery costs), so we felt that this option might be best saved for a special occasion; that said, he is very highly recommended in the guest book so perhaps it’s worth the extra splurge!

Siri Mendira - Villa Bakung

Siri Mendira - Villa Bakung

Indonesia » Bali » East Coast » Candidasa

The mesmerising views and tranquil setting of Villa Bakung left us in a state of tropical languor. Dreamy days gently slipped into balmy nights, with little to think about except whether to have pancakes or eggs for breakfast; swim in the ocean or the pool; take a trip to the beach, or stay at home. Nature is generous here, treating us to misty pink hued mornings, brilliant blue afternoon skies with low slung clouds bopping over the horizon, and views over the rocky hulk of neighbouring Penida Island, with the shadowy silhouette of Lombok in the distance.

Villa Bakung isn’t huge, but with the ocean stretching to the horizon there was a genuine sense of spaciousness and flow. We enjoyed glimpses into local life as fishermen headed off in their colourful jukung (fishing boats) or net fished in the shallows, while easy strolls down the shady lane revealed cows meandering through the coconut groves and kids playing soccer. There are no direct views of the sunset, but dusk is still a beautiful time, bathing the villa and the ocean in a soft glow.

Siri Mendira - Villa Angsoka

Siri Mendira - Villa Angsoka

Indonesia » Bali » East Coast » Candidasa

Our stay at Villa Angsoka was imbued with a sense of smugness, this was a villa to be proud of! The views are mesmerising, holding us captive for hours at a time. Nature is generous here, using the sky and ocean as her canvas; treating us to misty pink-hued mornings, brilliant blue afternoon skies with low slung clouds bopping over the horizon, and views over the rocky hulk of neighbouring island, Penida, and the shadowy silhouette of Lombok in the distance. Dreamy days gently slipped by, with little to think about except whether to have pancakes or eggs for breakfast; swim in the ocean or the pool; take a trip to the beach, or stay at the villa. While built on a grand scale, the owners designed Angsoka with harmony and comfort in mind, creating a highly liveable space which is luxurious without being over the top. The collection of Indonesian curios and antiques is more homely than museum-like in nature, while simple sofas and chairs in all-weather rattan, suit the tropical beach location. We enjoyed watching local life unfurl around us, with fishermen heading off in their colourful jukung (fishing boats) or net fishing in the shallows, while easy strolls down the shady lane revealed cows meandering through the coconut groves and kids playing soccer. While there was no direct view of the sunset, dusk was still a beautiful time, bathing the villa and the ocean in a soft pink glow, and we always looked forward to the staff lighting the decorative fires at either end of the pool, punctuating the night sky with flames.

Siri Mendira - Villa Cempaka

Siri Mendira - Villa Cempaka

Indonesia » Bali » East Coast » Candidasa

We were instantly won over by the mesmerising views and laid back tropical vibe at Villa Cempaka. And despite being on Bali’s quiet, rural south-east coast, we found plenty to do: after exploring the reef in front of the villa courtesy of the villa’s masks and snorkels, taking boat trips, and visiting the nearby beaches at Padang Bai (10km) we still managed plenty of down time to chill out at the villa and enjoy ‘the good life’. Nature, with its changing moods, treated us to a kaleidoscope of vistas, from misty mornings, to vivid blue afternoon skies scattered with fluffy clouds, and views over the rocky hulk of neighbouring island, Penida with the shadowy silhouette of Lombok in the distance. Villa Cempaka isn’t huge, but with the wide expanse of ocean stretching before us there was a genuine sense of spaciousness and flow. We enjoyed glimpses into local life as fishermen headed off in their colourful jukung (fishing boats) or net fished in the shallows, while easy strolls down the shady lane revealed cows meandering through the coconut groves and kids playing soccer. There are no direct views of the sunset, but dusk is still a beautiful time, bathing the villa and the ocean in a soft glow.
