Villa Aiko

Villa Aiko

Indonesia » Bali » Jimbaran - Bukit » Jimbaran

This luxury hillcrest villa packs a punch with its panoramic views across Jimbaran Bay. We soaked up the vista from Aiko’s infinity pool, second-level terraces, enormous find-me-if-you-can bed – even from our bathtub-for-two!

If you’re looking for traditional Bali-style architecture, Villa Aiko may not be your first choice. But while resolutely city-chic contemporary in design, the villa makes abundant use of natural materials in its construction - think reclaimed ironwood and river-stone walls, teakwood floors, Benkirai-wood decking and ironwood shingle roof. And the essence of Bali is evident in the charming and attentive-but-discreet staff.

The villa manager/executive chef Putu was an absolute treasure. He was completely unfazed by my vegetarian request and created a memorable dinner – spring rolls, pumpkin and basil soup, beetroot and orange appetiser, and Portobello mushrooms en croute with perfectly cooked vegetables and the best mashed potatoes in Bali. And his Eggs Florentine  – the egg poached to perfection, the Hollandaise cancelling days of dedicated Pilates practice – was a fabulous way to kick-start the morning. No wonder some guests stay away from Jimbaran Bay’s seafood restaurants and choose instead to eat in every day, as the visitor’s book attests.

We think Aiko would be a great villa for large family groups. There are so many independent seating areas to break away to for some peace and quiet, and it’s great to find a library in a Bali villa; we really appreciated the wide choice of books. Though all four bedrooms have king-size beds  – no twins – there’s a single bed discreetly designed into the foot of each bed. We thought the fourth bedroom might be best for kids (who tend not to be so view-hungry) as the outlook is partly blocked by the guest pavilion and spiral staircase. One note of caution: there are steep drops from the pool and terraces but, thankfully for parents, glass barriers line both second floor terraces.

The Shaba

The Shaba

Indonesia » Bali » Jimbaran - Bukit » Jimbaran

As soon as I walked into the Sandat Suite I felt like a princess. Thanks to owner, Zohra Boukhari, a renowned interior designer whose projects grace villas and hotels from France to Malaysia, every nook and cranny of The Shaba is dressed to the hilt. With matching crystal chandeliers, a formal dressing room and freestanding claw-foot bathtub filled with rose petals upon arrival, my room felt like something out of an Arabian Nights fairytale.

Normally in a rush to take a dip in the pool and save unpacking for later, I found myself dawdling in the opulent, air-conditioned suite. With more than enough closet space for a small army, a charming set of velvet upholstered chairs, hand-knotted area rug and silk tassels for cabinet pulls, unpacking turned into a full sensory experience. The rest of the day unfolded slowly, from the sparkling freshly squeezed orange juice to the complimentary espresso, much time was spent just poking around taking in the nuances that make The Shaba feel like a slice of exotic Marrakech in the heart of tropical Bali.

Although the villa shares a large estate compound with its sister villa, The Balquisse, as well as the main office, restaurant and spa, The Shaba is tucked away in its own private oasis. Mornings were a bit busy with the numerous staff it takes to keep all of the glass windows and lanterns crystal clear (next time I’ll ask them to take care of all that after I’ve set off for the beach), but by mid-morning, I had the place mostly to myself. With the upbeat Ku De Ta–style tunes playing on the villa’s iPod sound system, and numerous lounge areas to choose from, it didn’t take long to sink into my book for the afternoon. The mangrove next to the saltwater pool creates a lush, private ambiance that is not easy to find in this condensed resort area – a lovely neighbour to have, although a little odorous depending on the direction of the breeze. Of course, nothing a chilled glass of white wine from the kitchen’s wine fridge couldn’t cure.

Villa Uma Nina

Villa Uma Nina

Indonesia » Bali » Jimbaran - Bukit » Jimbaran

There is something very easygoing about Villa Uma Nina, and we thought this must have been down to its serene situation and its beautiful presentation both indoors and out; we felt at home the moment we stepped inside.

Uma Nina is a great family villa; the garden is almost flat, despite the property’s hilltop location, so it’s great for children of all ages; there’s also a slide for the swimming pool, not to mention tortoises in the pond, which kids will absolutely adore. A sand petanque pitch at the bottom of the garden and games such as croquet provide further entertainment.

Rooms in the main house are equally sized and come with their own private balconies or verandas making the villa good for friends and couples sharing. The upstairs bedrooms and rooftop terrace, were the absolute best for gazing at the views of harbour and sea. Stone stools and petrified wood seats might not encourage you to stay seated up here for too long, but they look great and, along with many other natural furnishings and fittings, provide the villa with plenty of character.

Service was generally good and the manager was very attentive. We enjoyed the meals prepared for us by the villa cook, though if you wish to self-cater the kitchen is well-equipped for it. Alternatively, take advantage of the villa car and driver and go out to eat in Jimbaran.
