Umalas-Kerobokan villas in Bali, Indonesia

Located between Seminyak and Canggu, the area known as Kerobokan, which includes Umalas village and Banjar Semer, is conveniently close to Seminyak’s trendy restaurants and designer boutiques, yet is promoted as the peaceful option because these flat plains still encompass acres of rice fields and distant mountain views.

Development, however, is happening fast, and this group of rural villages is now home to numerous rental villas and private residences, with plenty of cheap ‘n cheerful Western-style cafes cropping up in the most unexpected of places, offering surprisingly good food and home/villa delivery services. Although there are very few shops as yet, there are a number of local supermarkets, bakeries, garden centres, simple spas and fitness centres, as well as three riding stables at nearby Canggu – Kuda P, Tarukan, and Bali Equestrian Centre. Visitors will also find ATM machines and reliable taxi services. The main road leading north of Seminyak to Kerobokan is lined with furniture stores and workshops offering “antiques made to order”.

Villa Bali Bali Cottage

Villa Bali Bali Cottage

Indonesia » Bali » Greater Seminyak » Umalas-Kerobokan

Of the three Bali Bali properties the Cottage is definitely the most intimate as its central living space with the plunge pool offers a couple or a family much privacy. Its design is simpler than its sister properties and although much smaller, good use is made of the space. The garden encroaches pleasingly on the interior design as the bathrooms and living areas are open to the sides or the skies to allow the tropical breezes to circulate and cool. We particularly liked the addition of the plunge pool that gave the property a hint of luxe and was sited such that it could be used very privately, day or night. The cottage would be ideal for a family of five as the third bedroom is very small and really only suitable for a child. The main bedroom – the largest room and the only one with an ensuite - is actually a twin rather than a double, probably due to a lack of space in the compact upstairs (double) bedroom. We found the staff to be always very friendly and discreet - there is a large team of 15 shared between the three Bali Bali villas – and outside of meal times (lovely Asian and western cuisine) we were left to ourselves.

NOTE:  Bali Bali Cottage can only be booked in conjunction with one or both of the other Bali Bali Villas.

Villa Bali Bali One

Villa Bali Bali One

Indonesia » Bali » Greater Seminyak » Umalas-Kerobokan

We were amazed by Villa Bali Bali One’s striking and highly unique architectural design. The sloping rooms and multi-level flooring make it feel larger whilst the villa’s soothing interiors  -  predominantly timber and stone  -  created an unpretentious and surprisingly homely atmosphere. The timber in the bedrooms gave the property a particularly cosy alpine feel that added character. This is our favourite Bali Bali Villa; its setting was very peaceful and the garden was a real treat, especially the generous swimming pool. The pool balé was as perfect for reclining in as it was a setting for enjoying refreshing massages that the management can easily arrange. The staff were very friendly and discreet - there is an efficient team of 15 shared between the three Bali Bali Villas  -  and outside of meal times (the food  -  both western and Asian  -  was very good) we were left peacefully to ourselves.

Villa Bali Bali Two

Villa Bali Bali Two

Indonesia » Bali » Greater Seminyak » Umalas-Kerobokan

Staying in Villa Bali Bali Two was intriguing, peaceful and private. In the most positive way, it felt like living in a modern day cave; you enter over giant stepping stones and then go down into the living room which features a roof that dips down almost entirely to the floor. This didn’t make the villa dark or enclosed as you might think as the whole front of the living room is open; instead it felt cosy. Also, this unique roof design manages to create little nooks and crannies to relax in making the property feel much bigger than it really is. We particularly liked the openness of the bathrooms and felt they were the best of all the Bali Bali Villas. The garden was very private and came with a small pool and tranquil balé ideal for shade seekers. There are only a few books to select from in the villa and no CDs or DVDs so you would need to bring your own entertainment with you. The TV and DVD player are a little old fashioned but both worked fine, and satellite channels were available too. The staff were very friendly and discreet - there is a large team of 15 shared between the three Bali Bali Villas  -  and outside of meal times (the food  -  both western and Asian cuisine  -  was very good) we were left very much alone.

Villa Malaathina

Villa Malaathina

Indonesia » Bali » Greater Seminyak » Umalas-Kerobokan

With its palatial proportions and decadent style, it’s tempting to say that we felt like royalty staying at Malaathina, but the villa is so contemporary that the term seems a little inappropriate and old-fashioned. Perhaps ‘movie stars’ is closer to the mark! We stayed alone and cheerfully lapped up the luxury, but were rather tempted to invite some friends along, because this is really a villa that deserves to be shared. With so much space and such a glamorous setting it simply begs for celebrations and events, and the atmospheric Javanese rock garden looked like an idyllic spot for a wedding ceremony.

I could easily imagine joining a high-end retreat here too – the yoga pavilion was a lovely space, and very well equipped (one of the owners is a yoga teacher – so no surprise there,) and the overall vibe, with the rice-paddy views and myriad terraces and gardens is wonderfully serene. We didn’t have a chance to enjoy the teppanyaki grill, but what a fabulous idea. When we return with a big group of friends that will be top of our list!

Surya Damai

Surya Damai

Indonesia » Bali » Greater Seminyak » Umalas-Kerobokan

Surya Damai was built primarily for the owner’s use and it is clear that they appreciate quality and simple sophistication. There is nothing pretentious, flashy or overdone here. By contrast the villa exudes calm confidence throughout, casually elegant, everything from the colours, furniture, artwork and gardens all fit together effortlessly and draw you deeper into its welcome embrace the longer you stay.

If you want to get away from it all, relax and unwind in the blissful knowledge that nothing is too much to ask of the well-trained staff, then this is you. Meals, massages, knowledge of tracks through rice fields to the beach, shopping or making restaurant reservations for dinner are all taken in smiling stride, and if you must connect with the outside world wireless internet and satellite television are available. There is plenty of space for all, relax on a lounger or read a book on a comfortable day bed while children splash in the pool, play on the lawn or wear themselves out on the tennis court.

A flick through the guest book confirmed our feeling that the experience regularly surpassed expectations and the hardest part for many guests is saying good bye and returning to the real world.

Umah Daun

Umah Daun

Indonesia » Bali » Greater Seminyak » Umalas-Kerobokan

Seriously spacious, perfectly configured and delightfully uncluttered, Umah Daun was an absolute pleasure to stay in.  The gentle curves of the building mimic the contours of the rice terraces, and the ponds that wrap around the ground floor, coupled with the glass doors that fold right back, made us feel like we were part of the scene rather than just looking at it.

Villas of this size can be a little austere and overwhelming, but there is enough colour in the décor and verdant landscape at Umah Daun to make it feel warm and intimate.  Our favourite design feature was the beautifully carved antique door shutters coloured in shades of teal and turquoise, which make stunning features on the white walls, as well as lovely bed heads in the childrens’ rooms.  Bedrooms are large and very comfortable and there are plenty of daybeds and sofas piled high with plump cushions that provide comfortable vantage points for soaking up the views and the peaceful ambiance.  It is such a lovely space, and the staff took such good care of us, that we didn’t really feel the need to go anywhere, but it was good to know that both the beach and Seminyak were easy to reach should we fancy a sunset walk or a meal out.

Bali Ethnic Villa - Villa Ka

Bali Ethnic Villa - Villa Ka

Indonesia » Bali » Greater Seminyak » Umalas-Kerobokan

We walked through the hand-hewn timber gates of Villa Ka and instantly left the real world far behind. Designed to excite the senses and relax mind, body and soul, Villa Ka epitomises Bali’s iconic contemporary design style, where the seamless blend of traditional and modern, along with that sweet Balinese hospitality, create a heady ambiance of holiday bliss.

An authentic Javanese lifestyle, epitomised by the elegant joglo pavilions, is heightened by the friendly attention of a team of butlers, housekeepers and chefs. Cheeky modern works of art enliven honey-hued timber walls, while other contemporary touches include state-of-the-art LED lighting wrapped in natural fibres. A whimsical “je ne sais quoi” spices up this tropical Garden of Eden with inviting cocoon loungers and rustic wooden statues.

The villa manager tells us that each bedroom is appointed according to ancient Feng Shui concepts. The element of stone, for example, is brought in through the inclusion of stunning, one-of-a-kind stone bathtubs and sinks, placed gracefully in each spacious garden ensuite.

As we’ve opted in advance for the villa’s private chef to prepare a traditional Indonesian feast for dinner that evening, we order a simple fruit plate for lunch. Each serving overflows with rows of impeccably sliced pineapple, papaya, and watermelon. After lunch we relax on the double loungers around the pool, each shaded with a rainbow of fanciful Balinese umbrellas, creating an ‘Alice in Wonderland’ ambiance. As we take turns cooling off and stretching our limbs in the very generous pool, the scent of exotic spices wafts through the air: our impeccably dressed chef is hard at work dicing and simmering.

Villa Ka is equally alluring at night, its gardens and pavilions beautifully lit with environmentally friendly fixtures. Just like the multi-faceted layers of flavourful dishes that are laid out before us by our chef, the nuances of Villa Ka beckon to be discovered in a leisurely fashion, one delicious moment at a time.
