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.

Seseh Beach Villa I

Seseh Beach Villa I

Indonesia » Bali » Canggu area » Seseh-Tanah Lot

Arriving at Seseh Beach Villa after dark, our first impressions were of a luxurious haven under a vast starlit sky.  The crests of huge waves crashing onto the beach just beyond the villa gardens reflected brightly in the moonlight.  It was an exciting and exotic welcome.

After a deep sleep in a super-comfortable four-poster bed in one of the upstairs Ocean Rooms, we drew back the curtains to get our bearings.  The ocean looked as amazing as it had sounded the night before, and from below a cloudless sky the gardens and pool beckoned.  Breakfast was a feast of fresh fruit, good coffee and freshly baked pastries – a great start to the day.  Later we enjoyed a delicious chargrilled salmon salad, which confirmed the chef’s skills and had us eagerly anticipating our next meal.  A chat with the friendly villa manager armed us with the information we needed to go on an exploratory walk around the village, which gave us some fascinating glimpses into rural Bali life.  The beach is beautiful for walking and photos, but huge waves warned us away from the water.

We thought that the layout at Seseh Beach Villa – both inside and out – would work very well for both family holidaymakers and for wedding parties.  Nearly all rooms face the gardens and ocean and the two bales at each end of the lovely long pool make gorgeous, breezy outdoor living areas.  A second Seseh Beach Villa, situated immediately behind the first, will open next year, making this an even better wedding destination, with a total of 11 bedrooms across both villas.

Seseh’s rural location may not make it everyone’s cup of tea, but a complimentary car and driver make it easy to reach Canggu and Seminyak should you want to.  Personally, we were very happy just to rest, relax and enjoy the villa.

Seseh Beach Villa II

Seseh Beach Villa II

Indonesia » Bali » Canggu area » Seseh-Tanah Lot

We had a great stay in Seseh Beach Villa II and found everything to be nigh on perfect with all the modern comforts of home mixed with all the lazy pleasures of a tropical holiday.  It was incredibly peaceful and quiet with lots of sunshine and swimming by day, while by night we enjoyed big-screen movie sessions, long leisurely dinners and the sounds of the waves lulling us to sleep in our super-soft beds.

After spending much of the day beside the pool, sunset proved to be the best time to head down to the beach for a wander along the sands and a paddle in the surf.  There are no lifeguards here and the water can be a bit rough, so swimming is not recommended.  

In the evenings, it was fun to gather around our own private bar for a pre-dinner drink.  The chef here is a very talented man, and the Balinese and Indonesian specialties that came out of his kitchen were superb.  Getting out of our incredibly comfortable bed in the morning was made easy in the knowledge that a hearty breakfast would soon be on the table.

Villa Shambala

Villa Shambala

Indonesia » Bali » Greater Seminyak » Seminyak

A beautiful villa that sleeps ten plus, and is right in the heart of Seminyak? Sign us up! Villa Shambala will definitely be a popular choice amongst the cognoscenti with large families or groups of party people who simply dig the happening atmosphere of Seminyak.  The design, with two bedrooms and a TV room in the main building and three bedrooms and another TV room in the  guest house, is a great layout for bringing the in-laws or giving the teenagers (and yourselves) some space.  The staff are friendly and very efficient, and the cook can turn his hand to anything.  Make sure you grab yourself a massage or an Ayurvedic treatment in the specially-built spa room adjacent to the pool.  The owner is an artist and jewellery designer; some of her unique creations can be seen in the villa and are available for guests to purchase.

Returning to Villa Shambala in August 2014 we were happy to see that the same high standards are not only being maintained, but have been enhanced by two smart new facilities; a sun deck with a beautiful backdrop, and an outdoor-but-undercover dining area with built-in barbeque which has been installed next to the living room.

Villa Shinta Dewi Seminyak

Villa Shinta Dewi Seminyak

Indonesia » Bali » Greater Seminyak » Seminyak

Villa Shinta Dewi Seminyak is such a pretty villa; it brought grins to our faces as soon as we walked in. And we were given such a warm greeting by the staff, with a frangipani garland each, a welcome drink and cool refreshing towel. The villa is built around an inner courtyard dominated by the pool, and although there’s not much garden the plants and flowering trees are gorgeous. The interiors are also lovely, with very comfortable sofas, chairs, beds and sunbeds, and sophisticated soft furnishings. It’s a tasteful, grown up villa, and this is also reflected in the service, which is very discreet. The staff have big smiles and the chef’s forte is a great homemade pizza and a hearty breakfast (breakfast is included in the villa rate; all other provisions are on guest account).

We certainly had no complaints on our return visit to Villa Shinta Dewi Seminyak. This charming villa has been beautifully maintained and refreshed with new soft furnishings, a new non-slip floor in the gym, wall coverings and generous licks of paint. There are now two 47-inch flat screen TVs, one in the open-air lounge and one in the study, complete with surround-sound, which turns this cosy room into a small home theatre. The villa manager told us that all the guests love this room. In fact, reviewing the great choice of guest relaxation areas at Villa Shinta Dewi Seminyak, and after having spent a bit of time in the delightful sunset lounge, we decided to up the score a bit. We also increased the score for the staff, they’re a great team.

Villa Shinta Dewi Ubud

Villa Shinta Dewi Ubud

Indonesia » Bali » Ubud

Villa Shinta Dewi is a gem.  With Ubud’s high-season influx of day-trippers and consequent increase in traffic chaos, we were happy to head northwards through the rice fields a couple of kilometres out of town to discover a delightfully private villa tucked away behind a small village.  Birdsong, the mature trees rustling in the breeze and the river rushing deep in the ravine were the only sounds to vie with Shinta Dewi’s multi-zone Sonos sound system…..topped only by our appreciative ‘Oooohs’ and ‘Ahhhhs’ as we tucked into Pak Putu’s fabulously presented dinner.  We were delighted to find such an accomplished chef here; Ubud is awash with great restaurants and cafes but, with his talent, we think many guests will be reluctant to eat out (despite the complimentary shuttle service).

We appreciated the choice of living areas – too many for us to enjoy in our short 24-hour trip.  After a divinely comfortable night’s sleep (top range mattresses dressed in crisp cotton linen), it was glorious listening to the dawn chorus from the comfort of the upper level lounge before heading down to the poolside balé for breakfast. 

The charming staff managed to pull off a fine balancing act by being on hand when needed, but otherwise discreetly in the background.  Villa manager Nong and supervisor Wayan are very knowledgeable about the area and can organise all sorts of trips, from cycling through the rice fields to a sunrise hike up a volcano.

Villa Simona Oasis

Villa Simona Oasis

Indonesia » Bali » Canggu area » Canggu

Villa Simona Oasis is a delightful villa in a lovely peaceful location.  Clearly the original owner was as passionate about his villa as he was about his wife to whom the villa was a gift.  The level of detail and finish throughout the property is excellent.  Equally passionate is the villa manager, who is always keen to make sure his guests have a good stay.  He speaks excellent English which makes up for the lack of English from one or two of the other staff.

The food we were served was nicely presented in the open-sided living/dining room – a great place from which to admire the villa grounds.  The pool is a delight and the sunken garden in front is perfect for a party or barbecue.  The bedrooms are very generous and the highlight for us was the huge ensuite garden bathrooms, particularly the master room, which is outstandingly romantic.  A great villa for parties, groups, families and yoga retreats.

Sira Beach House

Sira Beach House

Indonesia » Lombok » Northwest Lombok » Tanjung

This is a great villa for families or groups of friends, with loads of space, private places to escape and plenty of entertainment for all ages. The pairing of the six bedrooms means that three families can easily escape from each other in their own separate areas. During our visit to the villa the staff surprised us by setting up a sunset table for two on the sand, within a circle of candles and flaming torches, to create a most romantic feast of local dishes. Only after the sun went down did we realise that the ‘circle’ was actually a heart shape! The chef has created a great menu and can turn his hand to anything but loves to indulge his guests with Lombok specialties. Due to the remoteness of the area, you’ll be asked to order your first meal and any special requests in advance of your arrival. The kitchen will operate on a menu or grocery system according to your preferences.

Fully self-contained, we didn’t leave the confines of the villa grounds except to swim in the ocean. The electronic beeper that we were given to summon the staff at anytime was a great idea (and necessary due to the size of the place). No one claims that this villa is 100% environmentally sustainable but great care has been taken in the design to be as eco-friendly as possible. We were very aware that, although were indulging in six-star luxury, we were having a low impact – the pool is chemical free, our long showers and baths were solar heated and the water we were using was being recycled to nurture the organic gardens.
