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 Canggu North

Villa Canggu North

Indonesia » Bali » Canggu area » Canggu

Our inspection revealed that Villa Canggu North would be a great choice for a small family or four friends who want to escape from the hustle and bustle of Seminyak.  The pool and its deck is an extension of the large living and dining room, which can be alternatively be closed off for air-conditioned comfort.  The beach is not a great swimming beach – this is a coast surfing Mecca – so do take care.  It is fascinating, however, watching the local community at work. The boat sculpture in the living space is a work of art, not a toy, so if you have young children you will need to keep little fingers in check!

Villa Canggu South

Villa Canggu South

Indonesia » Bali » Canggu area » Canggu

Villa Canggu South is great for families or groups of friends who want to escape from the hustle and bustle of Seminyak.  The pool is lovely and the pretty garden features mature trees and an immaculate 15 x 6 metre lawn, which is great for parties and even a family game of cricket.  It’s also a big bonus that it’s such short walk from the beach, albeit not a great swimming beach – this is a coast surfing Mecca – so do take care.  It is also fascinating to see the local community at work. 

The villa interiors are filled with mesmerising modern artwork – paintings, murals and installations – by renowned local artists; whether you are an art connoisseur or a layman, there are enough art pieces here to keep you fascinated for hours.  And there are plenty of spaces to relax. We really enjoyed spending time in the bright and breezy upper-floor lounge.  Oh, and we were particularly impressed by the staff.

Villa Cantik Pandawa

Villa Cantik Pandawa

Indonesia » Bali » Jimbaran - Bukit » The Bukit

We were looking for somewhere to get away from it all, and Villa Cantik was the perfect choice.  Waking up to those brilliant sunrises over the ocean was a wonderful start to each day.  Coastal breezes carried the heady scent of frangipani and the early morning birdsong was yet another pleasant reminder of the distance between over-crowded Kuta and us.

Although there’s plenty to do in south Bali, we opted to spend our days at the villa, swimming in the two pools, lounging in the sun, playing billiards and visiting the gym when guilt set in.  The staff were incredibly accommodating. We would climb out of bed to enjoy a coffee by the pool and return to see our room freshly cleaned and tidied.  Since Villa Cantik is far removed from any major grocery stores, we would put in our food order around mid-day, then relax with a private spa treatment followed by a couple of cocktails poolside, while the kitchen team worked their magic and dinner was served.  Before bed, we enjoyed an evening swim under the stars, and then drifted off into a peaceful sleep.

Villa Capung

Villa Capung

Indonesia » Bali » Jimbaran - Bukit » The Bukit

Villa Capung is refreshingly unpretentious, the kind of place where you walk in, promptly collapse on the sofa and immediately feel right at home (if only home had views like this!). While the villa is not huge, the views of pristine hills and the expanse of Indian Ocean that spread before you create a seemingly endless sense of space, and the villa has been cleverly designed to maximise options for privacy. The master suite is gigantic, while the second bedroom has its own private deck as does the garden suite.

The owners spend quite a bit of time here, and have struck a perfect balance between elegance and comfort: this very popular villa feels well loved and lived in. Enjoying the views from the infinity pool was a definite highlight, especially in the soft late-afternoon light, which deepens the colours of the leafy foliage in the garden. However, Capung really comes into its own in the evening when dark amber lamps cast a seductive glow over the living room, accentuating the crimson furnishings.  Spotlights illuminate the palms and lotus pond, and the lights of Bali twinkle like a fairyland far below. There is a wonderful heady sensation of being so high up, and the villa seems remarkably good value considering these million dollar views.

The staff are efficient and kind, immediately on hand if we needed something, but entirely unobtrusive the rest of the time, and we loved that they can mix cocktails!

Casa Brio

Casa Brio

Indonesia » Bali » Greater Seminyak » Seminyak

Casa Brio was a delightful surprise — everything was so much bigger and better than we anticipated; the photos really don’t do it justice.

We were particularly impressed with manager Pak Yusa and his staff, who made sure we wanted for nothing during our stay from the moment they welcomed us with an ice-cold towel and fresh juice. A special shout out to Wayan the villa chef whose culinary skills ensured we never dined out (even though our old-time favourite, La Lucciola was only a five-minute stroll away). My taste buds still tingle at the thought of his delicately flavoured pomelo and chicken salad, and beautifully presented mahi mahi steaks.

This feels very much like a ‘grown up’ villa — we can easily imagine elegant dinner parties and special family celebrations, and think it’s a great villa for friends to share. Families with toddlers might be concerned about the open staircase and rooftop terrace (not to mention sticky fingers all over the handsome upholstered furniture). But the staff enjoy welcoming children, can supply a pool fence on request, and there’s a large shallow pool area for young ones to enjoy.

Villa Cemara

Villa Cemara

Indonesia » Bali » East Coast » Sanur-Ketewel

Wow…from private pool to shallow sea in five paces?  We’ve been lucky enough to stay in quite a few beachfront villas, but none have been as close as Villa Cemara!  We were amazed when we first walked through its unassuming entrance and into the enormous living pavilion; the view was so attention-grabbing that we hardly noticed the cold towel and freshly squeezed orange juice that were pressed into our hands in welcome.  When we eventually dragged our eyes away from the vista, Pande showed us around the place.  We loved that the bedroom suites were all named after tropical flowers found in the garden.  And the Australian owner’s taste was evident in the exquisite Indonesian furnishings, artefacts and art; gosh, is that really an original Arie Smit painting?  Surely that can’t be a real Hoffker?  And I felt an acquisitive flash for that fabulously gilded door framing a mythical garuda. The first question was where to relax. The pond bale? The living pavilion daybed? The poolside sun-lounger?  The pool was just too inviting, and after a refreshing dip, we slipped through the gate onto the golden sand for a leisurely sunset walk, returning to find a tasty dinner waiting for us.  (We found the staff to be very friendly and obliging, and appreciated that they knew when to disappear.  Two of them share cooking duties, and there’s an extensive suggestion menu of Balinese, Indonesian and western dishes … plus one of the cooks is dab hand at Mexican cuisine.)  This is a fantastic fair-share villa for couples or a group of friends; it’s very family-friendly too.  Though the master pavilion is gorgeous, we don’t think anyone would be upset not to get it; in fact we chose to stay in the guest bedrooms instead, preferring their scale and light.  The villa is great for those who want to relax and recharge their batteries, but the more energetic can go jogging or cycling along the promenade, or head to the water-sports centre for a spot of kite-surfing or sailing.  We thoroughly enjoyed our it-can’t-possibly-be-a-once-in-a-lifetime Cemara experience, and were not at all surprised to learn from the villa manager that well over 90% of guests return.  That’s now sure to include us too.
