Bidadari Cliffside Estate

Bidadari Cliffside Estate

Indonesia » Bali » Nusa Dua

Remote but perfectly formed, this villa is a great recipe for a pure getaway; just for you and the people you have chosen to spend your holiday with – as it should be. Depending on how far you have travelled to get here, Bali may feel like the end of the Earth so, having come this far, why not drive the extra few kilometres to be right on the edge of it all at Bidadari. We welcomed the isolation and lack of modern distractions like boutiques and bars. Staying ‘at home’ all day and all night was a delight as we chilled out, looked after by a tremendous staff, who were always on hand to top up an empty glass or empty tummy. The home theatre has a lovely large telly and a decent DVD collection, but as good as it was it couldn’t compete with the heavenly views. We highly recommend waking early for sunrise; not only a spectacular show of nature but also an inspiring way to start another beautiful Bali day.

The chef prepared a lunch for us of fish cooked with turmeric and coconut, prawns grilled on the BBQ with garlic and lime, and some traditional Balinese salads, which was all superb. And at dinner time, he massaged a leg of New Zealand lamb to perfection over the barbecue’s naked flames. Sitting down to eat, we felt like characters out of a Goldilocks story because the oversized chairs were large enough to seat the largest of bears. Everything in this villa was brand spanking new and of the highest quality, and all the soft furnishings were super-comfy – we slept like angels.

Villa Bodhi

Villa Bodhi

Indonesia » Bali » Ubud

Villa Bodhi is a breath of fresh air. Amos Kotomori (a gifted clothing designer) has created a lush, art-filled residence within easy reach of Ubud that, luckily for us, is now available for holiday rental. On the drive up to the villa along Jalan Raya Sayan, the major luxury hotels - Four Seasons, Aman, Alila, and Como Shambahala – are all vying for that magical million-dollar river valley view. Kotomori has matched that same magical ambiance at Villa Bodhi, except with two major differences – no neighbours in sight and a nightly rate that sleeps eight people very comfortably instead of two.

Being the consummate artist, Kotomori has done things a little differently at Villa Bodhi. Instead of the quintessential frangipani flowers found everywhere in Bali, I am greeted by the cheerful sight of vibrant marigold blossoms, carefully placed along stone ledges and statues. The garden is alive with butterflies and dragonflies in a rainbow spectrum from butterscotch to pomegranate. The villa manager, Made (pronounced mah-day), welcomes me with a cold towel and refreshing drink, and as he gives me a tour of the villa I feel like I have stepped back in time to the 1930s, when the likes of European painter Walter Spies spent languid days at Ubud Palace, capturing on canvas the never-before-seen landscapes that lured the West to explore this side of paradise.

A perfect blend of traditional and modern, the villa’s antique joglo structures are enhanced with contemporary polished concrete floors, air conditioning, modern timber and glass construction to showcase the outstanding views, and well chosen teak accents that uplift the ambiance. Kotomori’s style is whimsically elegant: antique stone statues wear colourful beaded necklaces, reclaimed sailboat wood in royal blue and sea-foam green add playful character against museum quality pieces, and the mesmerising views from the swimming pool make attending that wood carving class in Ubud seem less of a priority.

Villa Bugis Green Gardens - Villa Sayang

Villa Bugis Green Gardens - Villa Sayang

Indonesia » Bali » Greater Seminyak » Seminyak

For simple three- and four-bedroom properties, Villa Bugis at Green Gardens are a true delight. In fact they are probably some of the nicest and most private villas we have stayed in within this price range. The best bit is that you get all this space and privacy, including a private swimming pool at each villa, for less than what you’d pay for the equivalent three or four bedrooms at your average hotel.

There’s plenty of room for families to spread themselves out and for the kids to let off steam. Although we didn’t have any toddlers with us, we did note that pool safety fences (not easy to find in Bali) were available for those that need them. We also thought that big groups holidaying together would find renting two or more of the neighbouring villas very convenient and convivial.

These are essentially self-catering villas, with staff on hand to take care of housekeeping and pool duties as well as preparing and serving daily breakfast. For the rest of the time we were left to languish in complete privacy (yet the team were always on call if we needed anything). We checked in for a lazy weekend and were delighted with our choice. Enjoying the pool and the lovely garden, and with music and movies for entertainment (there’s also complimentary WiFi at the villa), we didn’t feel much of a need to go out; although we did amble slowly down the lane for a few sunset drinks on the beanbags spread out along Seminyak Beach – highly recommended! If we had chosen to self-cater, the staff would have willingly taken care of our grocery shopping at no extra cost.

Villa Bugis Drupadi - Villa Alam

Villa Bugis Drupadi - Villa Alam

Indonesia » Bali » Greater Seminyak » Seminyak

Our stay at Villa Bugis Drupadi was delightfully private, highlighting that there are advantages to be had in not always being looked after by a big team of staff – no matter how discreet they are. As it was, we were left to bask in the privacy of our own splendid pool oasis.  

Remarkably good use has been made of the generous space at Villa Bugis Drupadi. We particularly liked the fact that the pool doesn’t take up the entire garden, which is often the case with villas in central Seminyak, and there’s plenty of room for families to spread themselves out and for the kids to let off steam. Although we didn’t have any toddlers with us, we did note that pool safety fences (not easy to find in Bali) were available for those that need them.  

We also concluded that the Drupadi Villas are in a great location if you’re looking for a place to stay that’s within easy reach of the beach and the many shops, restaurants and bars that Seminyak is famous for. It took us around ten minutes on foot to reach the main dining and shopping areas.

The villas are basically self-catering although a simple breakfast is included in the rate; just tell the staff when you want it. Alternatively, if you fancy breakfasting out, or making your own, no problem (the staff will even do your grocery shopping for you at no extra charge).

Villa Bugis Drupadi - Villa An Tan

Villa Bugis Drupadi - Villa An Tan

Indonesia » Bali » Greater Seminyak » Seminyak

We really enjoyed staying in this fabulous location. Villa An Tan is conveniently tucked away and quiet yet you can easily walk to the shops, bars and restaurants of trendy Seminyak. The staff are very discreet (perhaps too discreet for some people’s taste) but it does mean you can bask in the privacy of this splendid pool oasis. The funky seventies-style sun loungers and love seats around the pool are great – as is the giant day bed in the shade of the gazebo.    

The lounge area is comfortable. We particularly enjoyed watching a movie on the large flat-screen TV with surround-sound speakers, and it was great to be able to connect our iPod to the DVD/stereo system in the bedroom as well as the lounge/dining room. The kitchens are well equipped for self-catering; I can imagine it would be fun to throw a dinner party around the square dining table or light up the barbecue in the outdoor kitchen.

Villa Bugis Drupadi - Villa Indah

Villa Bugis Drupadi - Villa Indah

Indonesia » Bali » Greater Seminyak » Seminyak

Despite being in a popular and busy residential area, Villa Indah was delightfully private, highlighting the advantages of not being looked after by a full-time team of staff – no matter how discreet they try to be – and allowing us to cast a few inhibitions aside and enjoy skinny-dipping in the pool whenever we wanted. It may not be the ultimate in luxury, but this villa is perfect for a family or a small group of friends who want to cook and look after themselves, (apart from the cleaning of course – it is a holiday after all!). The manager is on call should guests need a helping hand and this proved useful when the power went down in the late afternoon, but apart from that we were pretty much on our own. DVDs are available on request, and can also be purchased cheaply and easily in Bali.  On our recent re-visit (Nov 2012) it was very nice to see that the villa was still the lovely little hideaway that it was back in 2009. Some things don’t need to change.
