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 Reina

Villa Reina

Indonesia » Bali » Greater Seminyak » Umalas-Kerobokan

We enjoyed our time at Villa Reina just chilling beside the pool and absorbing the lush garden surroundings, and we loved the incredibly private atmosphere and the convivial design of the huge living room. Despite the villa’s dusky black and purple decor, its open layout allowed the light to pour in, and in the bedrooms, these contemporary shades were softened by woollen crochet bedspreads, matching cushions and long white curtains. The ensuite bathrooms, even with their glamorous silver sinks, felt beautifully natural and Balinese.

The villa would make a wonderful hideaway for sunseeking groups of friends (as long as fights don’t break out over who gets the master suite!), and it’s a particularly good set up for a family with a couple of older kids. The master suite has a particularly great bathroom, and pamperpusses will adore the oversized moulded stone tub that’s placed just beside sliding doors onto a river-view terrace. This bathroom also makes a great spot for enjoying a massage, and a quick phone call to BaliEpicure is all that’s needed for masseurs to head your way, massage table in tow. We tried it and loved every second – it was all so easy to arrange.

The villa comes with a husband and wife staff team who look after the house and garden, as well as a night security guard. The first breakfast is included in the rate, and after this all other meals are costed according to the price of the groceries. The maid can prepare western breakfasts and simple Indonesian cuisine for lunch and dinner, and she can do the shopping on your behalf if you furnish her with some cash and a list. She works until 5pm and prepared dinner for us before she left for the day. We liked this system as it gave us plenty of privacy in the house in the evening. The kitchen is also well equipped for self-caterers, and a selection of menus (including BaliEpicure) are available for home delivery.

Villa Songket

Villa Songket

Indonesia » Bali » Greater Seminyak » Umalas-Kerobokan

We knew staying at Villa Songket would be a pleasure the moment we arrived to find Ayu, the charming Villa Manager, and her team waiting to greet us with a refreshing cold towel an icy lime juice in the lovely vaulted living room. And indeed it was, right up to our departure when we were presented with a lovely sarong as a memento of our stay – a lovely ritual that is typical of the care and attention that has gone into creating this delightful holiday villa. Space-wise the villa is decidedly deceptive; though it occupies a small patch of land it is laid out very cleverly to create generous living space. There are plenty of private spots to retreat to – the upstairs balcony and the poolside balé being delightful for a quiet afternoon snooze. And although there were three bedrooms and only two of us, we were able to spread out without feeling swamped; in fact, the villa works really well as a romantic retreat and is amazingly private! We loved the master bedroom pavilion opening onto the pool – almost as close as the fabulous stone tub in the garden bathroom, so a good spa-style soak and a cooling swim are equally effortless. There’s good WiFi coverage everywhere, and we appreciated the iPod dock and home entertainment system too. Ayu and her assistant Henny really impressed us, managing the rare combination of being friendly, efficient, knowledgeable and professional. Their breakfast presentation was excellent, and we marveled at how quietly they prepared it in the open-plan kitchen to avoid disturbing us. And while we appreciated their discreet presence during the day, we liked having the villa to ourselves at night (other than the security team who patrolled the place with equal discretion).

Umah di Desa II

Umah di Desa II

Indonesia » Bali » Greater Seminyak » Umalas-Kerobokan

Umah di Desa II is stylish and cheerful and flooded with natural light, it also feels delightfully homely with its warm colours, pretty tiles and lovely garden. The vines that dangle from the flat roof of the lounge pavilion create wonderful softness. Privacy and discretion are paramount here, staff will ring the doorbell before coming in – so there are no awkward surprises should you decide to skinny dip. Completed in May 2012, Umah di Desa II was delightfully new and fresh at the time of our visit, a contemporary villa with the crispest linen, firmest cushions and immaculate appliances. Walking to the beach gave us a pleasant glimpse into our neighbourhood and we wandered along the sand at sunset to the funky beach club, Potato Head. We also discovered nearby Watercress, a charming healthy restaurant with lovely rice paddy views – while meat eaters will love the ribs and the vibe at Naughty Nuris. The location was perfect for us: not in the thick of Seminyak, but close enough to ride the bikes (provided) or to flag a cab.

Umah Duri

Umah Duri

Indonesia » Bali » Greater Seminyak » Umalas-Kerobokan

Don’t let the discreet entranceway to Umah Duri fool you. Once you pass through it and go down the narrow bamboo lined path, a delightful scene unfolds: a beautifully designed villa just oozing with Balinese charm and style. Just far enough out of town to be quiet and peaceful we really enjoyed this villa. A long afternoon chilling by the pool, sinking into the sofas and getting a couple of great massages followed by some tasty home cooking by Komang (who fulfils the role of both manager and cook), made for a pretty fantastic stay. The surrounding area is slowly becoming quite the place to be, and lots of new eateries are popping up almost overnight so dining choices are never going to be thin on the ground. Should you should feel the need to cook, however, you’ll be well pleased by the big and well-fitted kitchen. That said, our vote stays with Komang.
