Villas in Bali, Indonesia

Bali is Indonesia’s most popular tourist location and is considered one of Asia's premier tropical island destinations. Steeped in history and renowned for its artistic way of life, Bali is a peaceful contrast to some of the more frantic destinations Asia has to offer.

The inner peace and creative talents of the Balinese has attracted artists the world over fascinated by local dancers, silversmiths, wood carvers, potters and painters that seem to pervade throughout the island. The abundant verdant fields and surrounding sea have long supplied Bali with an easy surplus of food leaving time for life’s more artistic past times. As a result everything in Bali has a creative and religious element centred around the local Banjar (residents association) – little, adorned temples are everywhere, doors are covered in intricate carvings, huge kites ward off evil spirits and colourful roadside ceremonies bring traffic to a standstill.

Bali is a popular destination principally from Australia and Asia but also from all over Europe. The island welcomes thousands of visitors each year to a relaxing lifestyle, stunning beaches, world class surf, vibrant villages, and spectacular scenery all with an exquisite tropical climate. Located approximately two hours’ flying time from Singapore the island is serviced by an international airport at Denpasar with direct flights to and from many major cities in Asia, Europe and Australia and many more via Jakarta, Indonesia’s capital.

The island offers an impressive range of leisure and lifestyle amenities including world-class golf courses, wonderful seascapes for surfing, diving and snorkelling as well as luxurious spas, chic boutiques, tropical forests, towering volcanoes and international cuisine.

Villa Umah Shanti

Villa Umah Shanti

Indonesia » Bali » Ubud

Villa Umah Shanti enjoys some of the most glorious views we have encountered in Bali. Perhaps not surprisingly, our favourite spot was by the pool, which seemed to float suspended above the valley surrounded by majestic trees and tropical blooms. It helps that the master bedroom opens directly onto the pool deck; night-time swimming (without staff around or steps to contend with) was enchanting.

The villa staff is very sweet and Dewa the villa manager was enthusiastic and helpful…nothing was too much trouble for him. Breakfast was beautifully presented, with tomato skins shaped into roses transforming a humble plate of scrambled eggs into edible art.

Though we were only two, we weren’t rattling around; in fact we were surprised at the intimacy of the place and, thanks to the terraced setting of the pavilions, feel the villa would work well for three couples. The romantically inclined as well as nature lovers, writers and yoga practitioners will find much magic at Villa Umah Shanti. But guests had better be sure-footed and unfazed by heights.  And with completely unguarded drops from the family pavilion deck and the living room, not to mention lots of steps linking the different pavilions, we can’t imagine a less relaxing holiday for parents with little ones!

Villa Coco Groove

Villa Coco Groove

Indonesia » Bali » Greater Seminyak » Seminyak

Villa Coco Groove boasts chic, minimalist tropical living in a spacious garden setting. We found the villa to be very peaceful considering it’s situation in a compact residential area, near to Seminyak’s restaurant and shopping districts. The grassed coconut grove and large swimming pool provided an attractive focal point for our days of relaxation and we agreed that the vast gardens (a rarity for villas in this sought-after area), make Coco Groove a great place for functions and parties, or for families with kids who need lots of space to let of steam. Really, this villa is suitable for all age groups and offers exceptional value for money.

The villa is a fabulous blend of old and new. We particularly liked the Sarawak theme in the lounge; the back wall is adorned with baby carriers, masks, parang knives, oars and blowpipes of ethnic groups from the Borneo region, such as the Dayak, Iban and Orang Ulu. You can read all about them in a number of the books found in a small, but eclectic library in the master bedroom. Whilst the TV lounge is functional, the small screen and limited seating engineers it more towards a reading room or study (there are no TVs in the bedrooms either).

We found the staff (total seven) professional, friendly and speak good English. They live out, however hours are flexible depending on your needs, and with three security guards there is always someone on hand. Babysitters and masseurs are available on request at additional charge. The chef excelled in all the meals he prepared for us. You can choose from an extensive suggestion menu and the staff will do the provisioning (a small charge is made to cover petrol). A well-thought-out information book informs you of the day-to-day operations of the villa and recommends day trips which can be arranged by the staff, whilst also giving great advice on local attractions.

Villa Jempiring

Villa Jempiring

Indonesia » Bali » Greater Seminyak » Seminyak

Villa Jempiring must be in the running for having one of the coolest swimming pool designs on the island. Not only does it slope gradually down into the deep but the shallow bits are painted and textured the colour and feel of real sand! Surround that with big green tropical plants under a big blue tropical sky and you can be forgiven for getting lost in a world of tropical island castaways. Even the daybeds are semi-submerged upon ‘the shore’ and, best of all, the tide never goes out. The owners have used recycled hardwood throughout that draws heavily on the indigenous themes of Eastern Indonesian that adds even more to the eclectic and wild experience. We especially enjoyed the positioning of the three upstairs bedrooms, which are bathed in sunshine with massive wraparound decks making a perfect spot for sun lovers. And the guest bedroom in the garden would be a perfect spot to put the in-laws or the teenagers. You also can’t ask for a better location if the beach or party scene is your raison d’etre.

Villa Kinaree

Villa Kinaree

Indonesia » Bali » Greater Seminyak » Seminyak

Considering its heart-of-the-action location in Bali’s sophisticated Seminyak, it’s extraordinary just how serene life is at Villa Kinaree. Thoughtful design combines classic and timeless Indonesian architecture with twenty-first century luxury and convenience to create a truly delightful villa and one we felt very much at home in. It’s very hard NOT to relax here with a gorgeous courtyard garden to enjoy, refreshing pool to dive into and a wide breezy balcony to stretch out on. Then there’s the very convivial pool table and bar area and the massive sofas to curl up on come evening time.

We loved the beautifully furnished bedrooms – especially the snug bedroom four set on its own above the living area - and the indulgent jacuzzi tub in the master bathroom. All rooms have plenty of private, comfortable sitting space, and the daybed outside the master bedroom made a lovely spot for a quiet read.

Although there’s a huge choice of places to eat and drink within easy reach of the villa, a chef is on hand to prepare a wide range of Indonesian and Western favourites for breakfast, lunch and dinner; just talk through your selection with him, or Theodora, Villa Kinaree’s friendly and very capable manager, and the rest will be taken care of.

Villa Kirana Ubud

Villa Kirana Ubud

Indonesia » Bali » Ubud

If you are into flat roofs and minimalist, modern, white-walled design, this is probably not the villa for you. But if you love a bit of bold colour and history, colonial architecture, romantic hide-and-seek gardens, antiques and art, you will love Villa Kirana. This is the realisation of a dream, a real home, designed to accommodate and fulfil the needs of a Western family who take holidays in Bali. The villa, the garden and the interiors was designed by the internationally-acclaimed garden architect, Made Wijaya (known for his flamboyant, eclectic taste) and his team. It has been furnished with love, and showcases a delightful medley of fine art collected by the owners. We found it fascinating to wander through the rooms because we kept noticing artefacts or decorations that we hadn’t seen before. This is a place to explore and get lost in; every room is different, and there is so much space in the gardens, it’s very easy to escape from your companions.

Villa Melati

Villa Melati

Indonesia » Bali » Ubud

How very different these Sayan Ridge villas are from those in the south of Bali. A variable sky, cooler temperatures, loads of greenery and the sounds of the river, with views to stop the heart. It is like being in the heart of the jungle, and we loved it!

Villa Melati oozes traditional style and, with only three bedrooms sharing its large amount of space and gardens, there is never a danger of treading on anybody’s toes. Spend some time sitting in the balé lookout pavilion just down from the main house: stone steps lead you to an authentic bamboo, thatch and wood structure that looks out through the coconut and frangipani down to the working rice fields 100m below alongside the banks of the swiftly flowing Ayung River. Or spread a blanket on the lawn on the edge of the cliff with a good book and someone special and let the world float by. The rushing waters, birdsong and the chirps of insects and frogs will be all that you will hear, plus occasional hoots of laughter from rafters as they ride the rapids on the river below. As well as being a private home, Villa Melati is privately managed, so don’t expect the slick professional butler service that you might get in some of the bigger villas around the island. Instead, the staff here are warm, friendly, willing and charming, and Dayu is a great cook. We also made friends with Nona, the resident golden retriever, she’s gentle and very friendly, but if you’re not into dogs, the staff will keep her well out of your way.

Villa Samaki

Villa Samaki

Indonesia » Bali » Ubud

As we leave the buzz of downtown Ubud and wind our way up along Jalan Suweta, I feel sure that Villa Samaki will provide us with a glimpse of real Ubud life, and I am not disappointed. Small pockets open up between the silk dress shops, tailors and small boutique hotels to reveal glimpses of the rice terraces that have made Ubud famous.

After a charming tour of the villa with Made (pronounced mah-day), the villa manager, we choose the lovely stand-alone master suite as our home-away-from-home for the evening. We didn’t have the luck of good weather during our stay, and it was a shame not to be able to fully enjoy the gorgeous infinity pool or explore the hillside as much as we would have liked, but it was wet season (December) so we shouldn’t have expected too much, and the covered dining balé by to the pool provided a protected outdoor spot to experience the grandeur of the river valley before us. White cranes would glide by at eye level and iridescent butterflies pollinated the tropical flowers around us.

In a perfect world, I would have taken full advantage of Made’s offer to have a masseuse scooter up from Ubud for a soothing massage in the pool balé, but because of the damp weather, a cup of coffee and a good movie up in the media room was a greater temptation. The comfortable couch here provided the perfect spot to while away a rainy day.

Villa Tao

Villa Tao

Indonesia » Bali » Tabanan

After the long and busy drive from Seminyak we were super-excited to arrive at Villa Tao. As we sipped our welcome drinks and gazed out at the ocean, the glistening black-sand beach and the waves of Balian surf break just a short stroll down the grassy hill, we felt we had landed in paradise. And we loved the rooftop garden with its 360-degree views of the mountains and the beach. Looking down on the cows roaming the pastures, fisherman catching their dinner and the waves rolling in, we got a very real sense of the simple lifestyle that has attracted so many visitors to Bali’s shores.

At sunset we went to check out some of the local bars and eateries at Balian beach on the other side of the river. A very laidback surfer/backpacker crowd was hanging out in the beachside bungalows. It was obvious that the word was out that this was the place to be if you want to escape the hectic Kuta scene.

The staff were pleasant, and Komang the chef is on hand to cook up a wide variety of home-style meals according to a priced a la carte menu.Just be sure to give the villa a heads-up for any special dietary requirements as there are no western style supermarkets close by.

The villa itself had heaps of space and the gladak houses were definite standout features, but we felt the downstairs concrete bedrooms lacked a bit of soul. The villa is quite new (we visited in November 2011) and there were a few things missing – mosquito nets and blinds on the bathroom windows – but overall it was very well equipped.
