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.

Astika Toyaning

Astika Toyaning

Indonesia » Bali » Canggu area » Canggu

In spite of the ‘high-design’ tendencies that characterise the simplicity and style of Astika Toyaning, we didn’t feel that it’s a look-but-don’t-touch kind of place. To the contrary, it’s very much the kind of space that finds you taking a deep breath and feeling like you’ve landed in the lap of peace and relaxation.  

The dining area, with its gorgeous wooden feasting table, just begs for long lunches followed by satiated snoozes followed by long dinners followed by satiated snoozes… you get the picture.  In fact, the use of wood throughout the villa adds beauty to the simplest of spaces and objects (who knew a bathroom basin could be such an object of lust and envy?) while the effective and dramatic use of red adds a certain modern glamour to the décor. Astika Toyaning’s 1600 square metres of space, give all guests plenty of breathing room, and when you add to this the proximity of water – the river, the pool, the water feature – you’ve got a villa tailor-made for the ultimate in relaxing holidays.

Villa Atacaya

Villa Atacaya

Indonesia » Bali » Canggu area » Seseh-Tanah Lot

There’s something very special about Bali-living when you know that beyond the garden walls are only acres of rice fields and greener than green countryside. Villa Atacaya rests in a patch of south-west Bali that is (so far) only sporadically dotted with villas and villages, so we knew we were in for the privileged private country life when we arrived. We were not let down. This is a big, modern villa with plenty of space and contemporary design (predominantly in white with colour-themed bedrooms) that is absorbed immediately by the artwork of nature found in the forest and river that borders its eastern flank. Instant peace and serenity… if you like the constant hum of cicadas and birds, that is. We do. There’s a cooling breeze coming off the river and the pool is always at the perfect temperature for a dip. The local area is very rural and it’s worth taking the time to go out for a stroll through the rice fields, coconut groves and villages to fully absorb your surroundings. We walked down to the beach (3km) at sunset and sat on a bluff above the black sands and crashing waves with a coke and a coffee bought from one if the local warungs. Highly recommended! The service of a car and driver is a thoughtful provision in this remote location should you wish to go further afield. Please note that this villa is not suitable for toddlers due to the water gardens.

Villa Atas Ombak

Villa Atas Ombak

Indonesia » Bali » Greater Seminyak » Seminyak

We loved Villa Atas Ombak. It’s big – nay grand – and majestic with a location that just can’t be found for love nor money these days. On arrival, we had to pinch ourselves to make sure we weren’t dreaming. This is the kind of place where you really come to relax and do nothing. And when we say ‘do nothing’ we mean just that, especially with the beach being on the front doorstep.

In the competitive world of luxury rental villas, it is often the staff that really makes a difference, and at Villa Atas Ombak they are definitely ‘on the ball’. Before we even knew we were thirsty, the housekeeper was strolling out to the lawn to see what we wanted to drink.

Should you feel like exploring beyond the villa grounds (and believe us, you may not!) there is a handful of local restaurants just a few hundred metres up the beach which make for an unpretentious, casual lunch or sunset drinks – so casual you don’t even need to change out of your swimmers. We didn’t! For guests who like to jog or amble along the sand, the distance to Kuta is a good challenge (with a taxi back of course).

Avalon I

Avalon I

Indonesia » Bali » Canggu area » Canggu

There are a lot of great things to say about this villa.  First, thank you wholeheartedly to the staff for the warm welcome and for graciously putting up with all our requests.  They made everything about this trip special for us and we’ll never forget it.  The owners obviously put a lot of careful thought and attention into the villa as well.  There are all kinds of interesting artefacts on display and plenty of travel guides and books on Asian interior design to digest.  The bedrooms were larger than expected, and the TV and DVD player were a big plus.

But the winning feature of Avalon has to be its location. It was a treat to find such a large – and affordable – villa so close to the beach in Canggu.  Being able to pop out to the beach without having to pack a day’s worth of stuff for the whole family was the most freeing holiday experience we’ve had in years.  We could essentially wake up and go straight down to the beach, and then bob back and forth between the beach and the villa as we pleased. It’s that close.

Staying on a dead-end road was also really special because it meant the beachfront was much quieter than other beaches where cars and motorbikes could go.  Walking through the La Laguna restaurant and crossing its wooden bridge to get to the ocean was a welcome detour (rather than sneaking by on the footpath beside it) and we spent plenty of time as patrons there, too.  You could easily watch the sunset there daily.  As big fans, we didn’t mind hearing their weekend DJ sets from the outside areas of our villa.  I would stay at Avalon again in a heartbeat.

Avalon II

Avalon II

Indonesia » Bali » Canggu area » Canggu

Hats off to the team at Avalon for delivering an amazing holiday experience for our family.  Thank you!  We were made to feel like VIPs with the most courteous care and would have gladly stayed forever in this fairytale setting by the sea.  We came for a beach experience, but this villa stole our hearts.  Its proximity to the beachfront was what led us to Avalon II, and the location is something special; but the charm of the villa is indescribable.

We’ve rented other vacation homes in Bali, but never opted for a villa with living areas quite so open to the elements.  I’m not the woodsy camping type.  Well, Avalon II’s open-sided living room is gorgeous in every way and suits a Bali holiday just fine.  One relatively small square space combines the modern with the traditional and the fab with the practical.  I was blown away by things like quick-drying patio furniture below a hand-carved wood ceiling and the grand woven basket which is lovely art and holds umbrellas at the ready in case of tropical showers.  The joglo accommodated our needs throughout all phases of each day, the same poolside patio and games room where the kids could drip with pool water also passing as a dining room in the evening complete with antique chandelier.

Initially hesitant about Avalon II’s the size and layout, now I think every two-bedroom villa should be just like this, with an outdoor living room by the swimming pool.  Again, it must be said that also behind the magic ambience and versatility of the villa are the staff who mop up, keep things sparkling and deliver meals like clockwork, which they do so discreetly and effortlessly.  We’re bragging about this trip to everyone we know in hopes they’ll join us for a short break before too long, and perhaps we can all stay in the main villa together for a group holiday.  With or without them, we’ll be back.  Don’t change anything!

Avalon III

Avalon III

Indonesia » Bali » Canggu area » Canggu

Staying at Avalon III exceeded all my expectations.  It is a small villa but has everything two people could ask for.  The exclusivity, privacy and location of this place make it my favourite one-bedroom villa in Canggu, and I would choose it again and again over any Bali five-star hotel with a front desk and fancy spa.  I recommend this villa to anyone, especially if you love the beach.

Who would have thought you could have your own little tropical beach house with a private pool for the price of a luxury hotel room?  We appreciated having air-conditioning in every room, and with glass doors looking onto the pool deck from the living room and bedroom, it still has a tropical jungle vibe, whether you are indoors or out by the pool.  Outside, there isn’t much of a yard, but there’s a table big enough for two to dine alfresco, and a set of wicker lounge chairs by the pool for sunning in total privacy.  At night, the pool lights up and you can gaze at the stars, so very easy to turn up the romance.

You can make your own meals, order groceries or room service, or get delivery from outside.  The villa staff were flexible and responsive to our requests.  We asked for maximum privacy, so they’d wait until we left to tidy everything brilliantly, and then they were always available outside the villa when we came back in the evening if we wanted anything.

Villa Batujimbar

Villa Batujimbar

Indonesia » Bali » East Coast » Sanur-Ketewel

With so many ‘ultra villas’ in Bali nowadays boasting all the bells, whistles and 80-plus-inch televisions, it’s always nice to stay in a grand old villa like Batujimbar, a classic example of the original Bali style, where the sizzle is in the foundations and the history, and not the marketing. Batujimbar comes from a time when wealth and grandeur was wrapped up in simplicity and we revelled in it. Knowing that this was the place of choice for the likes of Mick Jagger, and chums, makes it somehow just a little more special, too.

Celebrity hype aside, the physicality of the villa is magnificent in its own right. It ticked all the boxes for us and it was a real pleasure to stay here and take a trip back in time. The grounds are huge, the bedrooms super-comfortable and the gardens are overflowing with trees and flowers under a tropical sun, with the beach just beyond the front gate making for a most relaxing stay.  Oh, and the food served from the villa’s kitchen is something else!
