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 Tukad Pangi

Villa Tukad Pangi

Indonesia » Bali » Canggu area » Canggu

This villa is chic and contemporary in style, whilst also oozing Balinese charm in its design and landscaping – the best of both worlds. The owner has obviously brought in top architects, landscape and interior designers to help realise his dream. The riverside location is enchanting, perhaps a little out of the way for some but well worth the extra few minutes travel time.

Villa Tukad Pangi is very private and peaceful and perfect for a retreat – both romantic or for a small group. The villa is a great base for families with older children, but it’s not ideal for the very young as there are no railings separating the veranda from a drop to the riverside. It is not perfect for seniors either as the pools could be difficult to get in and out of, and there are several steps down to the lower level.     

There are plenty of spots to relax, read a book or watch a movie, so groups would not get on top of each other when the villa is at full capacity. It’s a fabulous place for a cocktail or dinner party with the pools and garden lit up romantically at night. The kitchen is fit to cater for a banquet … and the chef will happily oblige. We enjoyed some excellent meals at Villa Tukad Pangi and the team of amiable staff were amongst the best we have experienced in Bali. A stay at Villa Tukad Pangi is akin to having a five-star retreat all to yourself, and comes highly recommended. It was nice to be greeted by the same familiar faces when we came back to the villa after three years. Nothing has changed in this sleepy rural riverside locale except perhaps the trees getting a little taller. Still such a beautiful retreat and one we were happy to return to. The rate now includes a car and driver for eight hours a day (excluding petrol), which makes the villa’s remote location less of an issue.

Villa Voyage

Villa Voyage

Indonesia » Bali » Nusa Lembongan

This Robinson-Crusoe-meets-Roberto-Cavalli villa is sensational! Not usually prone to hyperbole, we consider it nigh on impossible not to be bowled over by the entire ‘barefoot luxury’ Villa Voyage experience. From the moment we caught sight of the dramatic sea vista beyond the living room, we were completely hooked. We lazed on sun loungers and beanbags by the pool, enjoyed siestas on the mezzanine bedroom balcony, and slumbered within the “I had a farm in Africa” tent bed, soothed by the pounding surf. The staff looked after us brilliantly, serving us a delicious breakfast every morning in the beachfront gazebo, and a three-course candle-lit dinner (tenderloin steak for him, sea bass for me) accompanied by the best chips in Bali! (Ingredients – which are charged to guests at cost plus a 30% shopping fee - are boated in from the mainland fresh every day, so we were asked to make our menu selection ideally 48 hours in advance).

This is a place that doesn’t do things by halves; all the design details have been painstakingly thought through, right down to the place mats and napkins (different for each meal – what perfection!). We loved the ‘voyage’ theme – the exotic travel books, the safari-style furniture. Every inch of the villa is a rich sensory pleasure, packed with surprises and with no part overlooked…like the antique daybed in the shadows of a sacred tree by the villa temple and the gate to the beach

We could have happily stayed put at the pool, so deeply relaxing is the Voyage experience! But the villa’s open-sided van, and jukung (outrigger) encouraged us out of our indolence, and we loved exploring the island – next time we’ll make a point of diving with the manta rays! We also dipped into the beach club next door for a tasty lunch, and strolled along the cliff tops – Dream Beach is only ten minutes away, and the restaurants of Mushroom Bay not much further.

Would we return to Villa Voyage? In a heartbeat! We felt so privileged to be among its first guests, and think that, once word gets out, this tropical island hideaway is going to get booked solid – by families and groups of friends.

Villa Windu Asri

Villa Windu Asri

Indonesia » Bali » Greater Seminyak » Seminyak

The fountain courtyard that lies just behind the front door of Windu Asri is a perfect regal welcome for the splendid residence that lies inside.  Of course, we had seen the pictures online but it didn’t really prepare us for the sheer grandeur of the villa.  Imagine a Raffles Hotel, built for one privileged group complete with a private swimming pool and all the bells and whistles of fine living but with the benefit of 21st century hindsight.  Everything about Windu Asri accommodated our love of comfort, technology, space and natural light.  It was also wonderfully quiet – all we could hear as we lazed beside the pool was birdsong. 
 
A big shout out must go to the staff, without whom our stay would have been nowhere near as relaxing and satisfying as it was.  They made us feel as comfortable as if we were family and as special as if we were honoured guests.  When drinks were getting low they were there with a refill, be it beer or afternoon tea.  And the chef’s talents cannot be over-emphasized.  Although the villa is in a prime location for all the great new restaurants for which Bali is becoming increasingly renowned, we were more than happy to eat at the villa for breakfast, lunch and dinner.  The food is beyond delicious… as is the villa.  Book it!

Villa Windu Sari

Villa Windu Sari

Indonesia » Bali » Greater Seminyak » Seminyak

During our inspection of Villa Windu Sari we were treated to great service and cuisine by the staff. The villa is modern, functional, practical and most importantly comfortable. We felt very at home here. Our visit was with a group of friends and we found Windu Sari well laid out and generous enough for us to be able to enjoy each other’s company or retreat for some privacy and solitude when we wished. The villa would also work well for families.

The Ylang Ylang

The Ylang Ylang

Indonesia » Bali » East Coast » Sanur-Ketewel

Initially, The Ylang Ylang can come across as quite daunting, especially the atrium, but it doesn't take long to settle in and feel comfortably at home. The staff are incredibly welcoming and gracious; some of them have been working here for nine years. The black and gold theme will not be to everyone’s taste – it is a bit glitzy – and we never did figure out what the blue lighting under the beds was all about!

Given its seafront location and the salt water environment maintenance is a continual battle and, in places, the villa is definitely showing its age. Some fittings may not work and some of the huge doors maybe stiff – it shouldn’t affect your enjoyment of Villa Ylang Ylang though, and staff are on hand if you need help with anything. Some of the bathrooms feel a little dated but they function just fine.

Villa Zelie

Villa Zelie

Indonesia » Bali » Canggu area » Canggu

We are no strangers to beautiful villas, but Villa Zelie is definitely one of our favourites, and we were happy to forget the real world as we immersed ourselves in this enchanted cocoon of sumptuous comfort and superlative service.

In these days of modern minimalism we relished the chance to bask in pure, unabashed old-world glory. Every glance and every turn was greeted with a slice of Indonesian history; from the delicate floral motifs hand-carved on wood, to tribal shell-encrusted neck pieces fastening back drapes, nightstands adorned with feather headdresses and corners filled with stone statues. And it wasn’t just the quality of the antiques, but also their thoughtful placement and display, which made it abundantly clear that the owner has impeccable taste and style.

The use of natural woods and stone accentuated by richly hued textiles in the bedrooms creates warmth and cosiness – despite the generous size of the property, and our bedroom gladak felt like something straight out of a fairy tale. Ensuite bathrooms were wonderfully atmospheric with vanities carved into stone and petrified wood, and pretty courtyard gardens. Fabulous lighting throughout the property added an enchanting allure to evenings, when all was blissfully quiet but for the faint hum of cicadas and the distant sound of the waves,

The pool was absolutely stunning, long enough for swimming lengths, and perfectly situated in the middle of the property to soak up 360-degree panoramas of the ornate buildings framed by elegant travellers palms and a deep blue sky.

Zelie is more than just a villa; it’s an experience – and one that we never wanted to end!

Adelle Villa Two

Adelle Villa Two

Indonesia » Bali » Greater Seminyak » Seminyak

As soon as we walked through the doors of Adelle Villa Two we thought ‘this is cute’ and for the location ‘surprisingly spacious’. It’s a dark wooden building so the effect is cosy, comfy and homely rather than light, bright and breezy. The rooms and living areas are basic and rustic with dated appliances (don’t expect a Bose sound system and plasma screens) but they do the job in a simple and relaxed way. And the generous garden and pool make it a great place for kids to let loose and for all to enjoy the sunshine. Due to its central location you can hear the faint sound of traffic in the distance and ambient sounds from the neighbouring villas but overall it is a quiet and peaceful place to unwind.

The staff spoke very limited English but the friendly villa manager, who is only a phone call away, can answer any questions you may have.

Unfortunately there was a local power failure just after our arrival, so we were literally left in the dark and without a back-up generator. But instead of searching for candles and fending for ourselves we decided to check out the nearby restaurant scene where we were simply spoilt for choice.

If you are looking for modern high-end luxury then Adelle Villa Two isn’t for you, but if you want great value for money, easy and comfortable living in a central location, then it ticks all the boxes.
