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.

Pure Villa

Pure Villa

Indonesia » Bali » Canggu area » Canggu

We felt like royalty staying at Pure Villa. The staff were exceptional, not only in taking care of our every whim but also in creating moods to suit the moment. The sheer white elegance of the villa became a canvas for mood lighting at night; tall silver candle holders placed by the staff along the length of the veranda added a warm glow to the evening and lights in the pool turned the water fluorescent with a rainbow of colors. A Bose speaker system installed at every corner of the property meant yoga on the lawn (mats provided), walks around the estate, massages and swimming were all enjoyed with a soundtrack to suit, and the villa iPod was loaded with all the genres we could ask for. With little light pollution, the night sky was amazing, and from the master bedroom we could watch the stars and the sunrise from the comfort of our bed; hello luxury!    

With the in-house chef having exceptional skills in the preparation of Indonesian and Western food, we didn’t look much further than the villa for our meals; and all at only the cost of the shopping plus a 20% service charge. When we did venture out to discover the local sights, having two cars and two drivers on hand (8 hours per day inclusive of cost, petrol extra), and who knew the area so well, made things very easy.

Puri Naga Toya

Puri Naga Toya

Indonesia » Bali » Ubud

Breathtaking! Bewitching! Beyond compare! We were captivated by Villa Puri Naga Toya’s extraordinary views, and found the place so intoxicating we were reluctant to explore beyond the (beautiful) villa gardens! We loved its colonial plantation-style, hill station feel, and considered ourselves quite privileged to be staying in this much loved family home surrounded by such a wealth of antiques and art. The master bedroom is a tour de force, and its terrace-with-a-view was a favourite spot (though the decadence of the antique opium bed in the living room was a close contender). With such stupendous views beyond the windows and valuable antiques within, it’s hard to concentrate on anything else; but just wait ‘til you see the library with its fascinating collection of books on Southeast Asia!

It was Bali’s cooler season when we stayed, so we took a light wrap to take the edge off the evening chill, and used it as an excuse to enjoy the comfort of the coal-effect fire. The housekeepers cooked up a creditable pasta dish for dinner, and served a delicious breakfast in a dining area with the most stylish chairs.

This truly is a place to retreat to when you want a break from the hurley burley of corporate life. Though we were only two people, we didn’t feel out of place; it still works as a couple’s retreat, which is unusual in a four-bedroom villa. So we can imagine this working well as an artist’s or writer’s getaway, suiting couples kindling sparks of romance, and also proving popular with families. The steep steps to the octagonal bedroom (and the lack of an ensuite bathroom) may put off older family members, but will provide a sense of adventure to teens, as will the Bamboo House in a separate part of the garden. Because of the dramatic and unguarded drop-off to the Ayung river valley, we would counsel caution in bringing young children unless you’re prepared to watch them carefully (and many of the artefacts are within easy reach of toddlers’ hands). Having said that, the guests before us brought two kids under the age of four and they all loved the place.

The Purist - River Residence

The Purist - River Residence

Indonesia » Bali » Ubud

Although River Residence is part of a complex of villas, complete with a spa, it felt very private and surprisingly spacious - especially when you consider that it hasn’t got its own pool or garden. The balconies not only overhang the river valley but also seem to draw the outdoors inside. This is a close-to-nature experience; you will awake to the dawn chorus, be serenaded during the day by cicadas and fall asleep to the sound of the frogs. The shared 12m infinity swimming pool is situated beside the river valley and bordered by a large timber deck, furnished with sunbeds. There’s plenty of room here and it’s a nice place for breakfast and lunch. The food is excellent, with an international à la carte menu and lots of healthy choices. The on-site spa is a delight, complete with a double treatment room, romantic bathtub for two, a manicure and pedicure room, and an open-sided upstairs yoga platform. Treatments in the spa are at extra cost. Upon our return, three years after our original review, we were delighted to see that the property has been immaculately maintained. The Purist was very new on our first visit but is now well established as a boutique villa-hotel and spa, with plans to increase its number of villas in the near future.

Rumah Puro Blanco

Rumah Puro Blanco

Indonesia » Bali » Canggu area » Canggu

With four bedrooms and comfy living spaces, Rumah Puro Blanco is a great party pad for a group, or base for a family who will enjoy being pampered by the attentive Balinese staff. There’s a hidden kitchen off the guest kitchen, enabling the staff to prepare for dinner parties and functions out of sight. The minimalist structure is well designed; we particularly liked the kitchen, living area and ensuite bathrooms – although there are a number of edges and ledges that could be hazardous for young children.    

The pure white colour theme is rather heavenly. Lush rows of palms along the boundary wall, beside stepping stones that run the length of the pool, provide some colour and remind you that you are in fact still on planet earth. As if by magic, tall palm trees spring out of the Palimanan stone floor and greenery cascades from the first floor. Glass containers in the living area sprout green reeds – indeed it’s quite remarkable how lush this villa is considering it has absolutely no designated garden area.         

We enjoyed doing a few laps in the large pool, hanging out on the daybed in the balé and sunbathing on the comfy rattan lounges. The pool is interestingly designed with sculpted shallow areas perfect for sunbathing whilst keeping cool in the water.

Villa Pursang

Villa Pursang

Indonesia » Bali » Canggu area » Canggu

Villa Pursang offers the quintessential Bali holiday experience: it is a safe, comfortable, peaceful environment, yet not too far from the island’s popular beaches and towns. The large grassed garden and infinity-edge swimming pool with its adjacent thatched bale relaxation pavilion provide a beautiful focal point to the property and make the villa a great place for functions and parties, or a fabulous residence for a family holiday – with the practical advantage of having a kids’ room connected to the master bedroom. It’s suitable for most age groups, although some seniors may struggle with the stone steps that lead down to the guest bedrooms and garden (there’s no hand rail).  

We found the cook and maid to be very pleasant and professional – both speak good English. Although they live out, the cook’s hours are flexible; if you want her to stay late simply pay her overtime at her reasonable hourly rate. There is no suggestion menu but the chef is pretty capable of cooking anything from Indonesian cuisine to sandwiches, burgers and pasta and will buy the ingredients required (shopping done at no extra charge apart from a minimal amount to cover petrol ) and bring you receipts. .          

The villa has a great atmosphere at night, with its romantically floodlit garden and swimming pool. During the day the double lounger in the shade of the bale at the end of the pool was a favourite spot to relax and be served drinks in between time spent on the sun loungers around the pool working on our tans.

Villa Putih Semer

Villa Putih Semer

Indonesia » Bali » Greater Seminyak » Umalas-Kerobokan

What we loved about Villa Putih Semer were the gorgeously chic interiors, which are of the ilk that you would expect to find featured in a classy interior design magazine. The owners are passionate about food, wine, music and books, and have made this the concept of their home. The cook showcased her skills by preparing her specialty, seafood curry, which proved to be fantastic. This sophisticated villa is a rural oasis on the edge of town, where we were able to totally relax and unwind within a beautiful, natural setting with a sneaky rice field view fringed by a small river, jungle vegetation and a bamboo thicket. The villa is so peaceful, so quiet, and so private. The car and driver (included in villa rate) is a great bonus, but we found it very hard to leave the premises. There are also some simple spas in the neighbourhood but, again, for those not wanting to venture out, staff can easily arrange for massages and spa treatments administered by professional therapists (on guest account) – to be carried out on the villa’s own massage bed.
