Villas in Indonesia

Indonesia’s dizzying array of cultures, cuisines, landscapes and seascapes is quite possibly unmatched by anywhere else in the world. The myriad islands – more than 17,000 in fact – that make up this heady, steamy, vibrant archipelago speckle across the equator for nearly 5,000km. A third of these ocean-ringed islands are completely uninhabited, which must surely be a trailblazers dream.

Travellers have been drawn to this mystical region for centuries. More than a thousand years ago traders from as far away as China were sailing to the aromatic Spice Islands of Indonesia, and this precious commodity drew the Europeans in the sixteenth century too. Fast forward a few centuries and this corner of the globe is still a hotspot for foreigners who visit today for its raw beauty and rich culture rather than the spices that pepper its delicious cuisine.

Two of the loveliest islands within Indonesia’s stunning archipelago are Bali and Lombok, each of which comes with its own special charms. Whilst Bali’s cosmopolitan vibe is far removed from Lombok’s quiet, barely developed tourist trade, each island boasts dreamy beaches, volcanic landscapes, fabulous diving, charming culture and gentle, welcoming people.

Straddling the equator, Indonesia has two main seasons – wet between October and April and dry for the rest of the year – with slight geographical variations. The wet season is by no means intolerable, as storms tend to come in sudden bursts in between long spells of sunshine. The Christmas holiday period traditionally attracts a horde of visitors. And, given what awaits them on these unique and exotic islands, this is surely of no surprise.

Villa Sapi

Villa Sapi

Indonesia » Lombok » Northwest Lombok » Tanjung

How relaxed is it possible for a human being to get? Our stay at Villa Sapi gave us some idea. It was so peaceful and quiet; the only constants being the sun, the breeze and the gentle splashing of the waves on the sand. Otherwise, it was a new experience at every turn, from the extraordinary architectural design to the random acts of artwork around the villa and gardens. The TV room – curvilinear, boxed-in with glass and filled with assorted beanbags – looks and feels like an annex of George Jetson’s cartoon space house.

The ebbing tide occupies a big part of your day because it takes up such a big part of your view. We sat on the beach one evening watching a brilliant sunset over a low, low tide with the dusk light reflecting off the rock pools and silhouetting the fishermen stalking the shallow waters. Yet, while nature’s sea views are pretty special, be sure to take the time to turn the sun loungers around so you can stare back at the equally impressive artistic achievements of man.

Come mid-afternoon, it’s fun to amble down to the Hotel Tugu for a glass of something cold and a journey into Indonesia’s diverse indigenous past before returning to Sapi for a sunset drink and the anticipation of what chef has in store for dinner. At the time of our visit, the daily charge for food per person was a mere US$40 (US$20 for children). Every meal was a three-course gourmet indulgence, and in our opinion this was some of the best food we have ever had in a villa; the chef is five-star-trained after all. If you’re worried about gaining a few kilos (and you probably will) you can opt for the chef’s low calorie fare. If you’re looking for in-house activities, the manager can arrange tennis with a professional coach, table tennis, volleyball, cooking classes and more.

All in all, this is a villa where you will want to bring your friends so they can see it for themselves. Photos and tall tales just won’t suffice.

Sayang d'Amour

Sayang d'Amour

Indonesia » Bali » Greater Seminyak » Seminyak

Sayang d’Amour is a veritable palace, and can’t fail to please. If you like opulence and grandeur, the colour purple, intricate detailing, Moorish arches, palatial bedrooms, indulgent bathing facilities, an astounding collection of objets d’art, a stellar kitchen, discreet staff, and plenty of activities and games for the kids, all just a short walk from the beach and Bali’s best restaurants, then perhaps you should stop your villa search and push “book Villa Sayang d’Amour” right now.

It took us ages to tour the villa simply because there is so much visual distraction (in the best possible way). Curiosity forced us to take the long and lingering roundabout route through the main house via the kitchen, living and dining room, and office/TV room, taking in all the detailing, the furnishings and décor (including hundreds of Moroccan-styled floor tiles) before we even reached the garden. Eighty percent of the materials, furnishings and artefacts have been imported from Morocco by the French owners to recreate a private fantasy surrounded by high walls, so while it may be true that the villa doesn’t have much of a connection with Bali, it’s fun to fantasise!  

And although there is a chef on hand to work magic in that gourmet kitchen, being positioned in Petitenget means that some of the best restaurants in (dare we say) Asia are literally within easy walking distance. Having the super stylish W Retreat and Potato Head Beachclub as neighbours gives you the (again walking distance) choice to hang out with the movers and shakers and catch the beachclub vibe – should the privacy of your palace prove too much.

At the time of our visit (June 2013) the villa was still very new and the staff not quite up to the slick standard that you might expect from a property of this calibre. But it is early days, and from what we saw we expect they will achieve service of the highest level before too long.

Villa Seascape

Villa Seascape

Indonesia » Bali » Nusa Lembongan

Wow. Wow. WOWWWWWWW. How can it get better than this? Stunning setting, check. Direct access onto the beach, check. Achingly chic interiors, yep. Fabulous ocean views, you bet. We had been expecting a beach-vibe villa, but not on this scale.  Seascape simply dazzles!

We drooled over every inch of this beautiful beachfront home. There were so many magical moments:  lying by the pool watching the rollers crashing against the limestone headland (or the calm sea – it changed daily); enjoying a ringside seat at the fire-pit as fireworks lit the sky over Mushroom Bay; lingering over a candle-lit dinner prepared by Dimas the excellent villa chef — do try his piquant salsa salad presented in a taco bowl — and served by the unflappable butler Yami.

We really like the away-from-it-all, turn-back-the-clock feel of Nusa Lembongan and consider it a refreshing change from the busyness of mainland Bali. Given the layout and bed configuration, Seascape would be the perfect place for an extended family. And we think fun-loving, design-conscious groups of friends will love the choice of indoor and outdoor living space. (Larger parties of say 20 people could rent Seascape together with Villa Voyage a hop and skip along the beach.)

Seascape has everything going for it; it was a pleasure to be among its first guests, and we found ourselves planning a return trip before the sun set on our very first day.

Selong Selo - 9B-2 Villa Manju (1BR)

Selong Selo - 9B-2 Villa Manju (1BR)

Indonesia » Lombok » South Lombok » Selong Belanak

Who would have thought that nestled into an untouched corner of Lombok, would lie such absolute luxury? Selong Selo is a little oasis in an already stunning island. Surrounded by green hills and with sea views that hold your gaze for hours, we couldn’t find a more beautiful spot, even if we tried.

The one-bedroom villa we stayed at was just perfect for me and my partner. A large king-size bed, plush with crisp white sheets looked out through the glass walls, giving a feeling of living in the outdoors.

The villa was luxurious and dreamy, with stylish furnishings and traditional artefacts lending it a certain charm. We woke up to gorgeous views, itching to slide back the glass doors and let the outdoors in. Hands wrapped around a hot cup of tea, brewed in our kitchenette, we could sit for hours on the patio, just staring at the scene unfurling in front of us.

The private pool was a much-loved luxury, inviting us in for a dip morning and night. And yes, also the perfect spot for a photograph to make friends jealous back home.

Though we have never surfed before, we were told a trip to Lombok is incomplete without trying out the waves and one day we did just that. We took the shuttle down to Selong Belanak Beach and enrolled into a beginners’ surfing lesson. What absolute fun, it was. To be honest, we did fall into the water more than once, but to our credit, we were riding the waves upright by the end of the day. So we treated ourselves to cocktails at the beach, watching the sun go down, lighting up the sky on its way.

Selong Selo - 1A Villa Viento (2BR)

Selong Selo - 1A Villa Viento (2BR)

Indonesia » Lombok » South Lombok » Selong Belanak

As we walked through the traditional gateway of our own private villa, we did not know what to expect. But opening the doors, we couldn’t help but gasp in wonder. In front of us, through large glass sliding doors, was a stunning personal infinity pool, seemingly spilling into the blue ocean below. The sight itself was enough to reassure us that this was going to be a unique and memorable holiday.

Waking up to the sound of crickets, we would make tea in the sleek kitchen and carry it outside, to sit on the deck and watch the countryside wake up. It was such a wonderfully relaxed way to start your day, in sharp contrast to alarm bells and hurried mornings back home.

The location allows you to get the best views in the area, because if you’re right on the beach, you won’t be able to appreciate how it sits prettily amongst green jungles. The shuttle would take us down to the beach everyday, for us to get our fill of surf, sand and sunsets.

Though we usually dined at Aura, the estate’s restaurant or ordered from the in-villa dining menu, my partner decided to cook us a meal on one occasion. The butler was kind enough to do market shopping for us and even offered to have a chef assist us in the food preparation within our villa (for an additional charge).

The villa is perfect for a couple with two children, like us, or even two couples. The rooms are spread out and we had our privacy despite being in the villa for most of the day.

All in all, an absolutely wonderful vacation, leaving us recharged and refreshed. A little slice of tranquility, which is not to be found often these days.

Selong Selo - 1C Villa Capri (3BR)

Selong Selo - 1C Villa Capri (3BR)

Indonesia » Lombok » South Lombok » Selong Belanak

Absolutely stunning living spaces greeted us as we stepped into our three-bedroom villa at Selong Selo. We looked around in awe, at the high ceilings, large windows and elegant interiors. The villa was everything we had ever dreamed of, and then some more.

The best part about the three-bedroom villa at Selong Selo is a sense of space. The rooms are all spread out across levels, so all of us had our privacy and found our own favourite spots to retreat to when we craved some me-time.

But the lavish living room beckoned us and we often found ourselves congregating in the stylishly appointed room, with sliding glass doors leading to the deck and the pool. The infinity pool was a rare luxury, and one that we enjoyed thoroughly. It made for some dramatic Instagram-worthy pictures too. Evenings would invariably be spent lounging around on the deck, cocktail in hand, waiting for the sun to set and the sky to become awash with violet hues.

Though there is a barbecue facility on the deck, we chose to cook some small snacks and instant meals in the well-equipped kitchen. This was not often though, as meals were usually enjoyed at Aura, Selong Selo’s restaurant set in a wonderful open pavilion.

Selong Belanak Beach was an absolute delight as we had a few surfing enthusiasts in our group. The waves are tame, and perfect for beginners. You can also take lessons or hire equipment on the beach. The estate’s shuttle service made it convenient for us to visit the beach and get a glimpse of local village life on the way.

A stay here was just what the soul needed - some much required down-time and a chance to slow down and catch up with friends. Of course, being surrounded by luxury was a much-loved plus too!

Selong Selo - 6B Villa Jakabee (4BR)

Selong Selo - 6B Villa Jakabee (4BR)

Indonesia » Lombok » South Lombok » Selong Belanak

The short drive from the airport was a precursor to our relaxing vacation. As the car drove along tree-lined hill roads, we could literally feel ourselves leaving our worries behind and giving in to the embrace of nature.

The gated estate is secure and has a lovely restaurant, Aura, where we enjoyed many meals. The common swimming pool also has a lovely deck to view sunsets from, while sipping on a refreshing cocktail.

The villa itself was overwhelmingly beautiful, with jaw-dropping views from every corner. We were a big group and yet, there was plenty of space for everyone. The large rooms all had sliding glass doors with incredible sea views, and ensuite bathrooms that deserve to be featured in world-famous magazines.

We would spend most of the day lounging about the infinity pool, and with views like those, who wouldn’t? The elders in our group preferred the comfort of sun loungers instead, often indulging in a spa treatment while relaxing under the sun-shade. Children would frolic about, running along the deck and then jumping into the pool when it got too hot.

A mobile device is provided in each villa and it is an easy way to communicate with the butler or even the General Manager. We could order in-villa dining through the phone, or even find out about the shuttle timings to the beach. The beach itself is amazing - deserted and clean, with great surf breaks for beginners and a photogenic backdrop during sunset.

We did head to Kuta for a delicious meal and a change of scene. However, our villa, and Selong Selo Estate were so incredible that we spent most of our time there and did not feel the need to venture out.

We’re back home now, but still dreaming of those magical views. They were incredible.
