Villa Bali Bali, Umalas

Villa Bali Bali is an iconic garden estate bordered by rice fields in Umalas, just north of Seminyak on Bali’s south-western coast. Featured in many books and magazines on Bali style, its three residences sit in their own well-screened gardens within the 4,000sqm estate, which is served by a staff of 15. The two- and three-bedroom villas can be rented separately or together with the third – a two-bedroom cottage with additional child’s or nanny’s room. Multiple families and large groups (up to 15) will appreciate the fine balance of privacy, community spirit, and space accorded by reserving all three.

Descriptions

Villa Bali Bali’s striking design – featured in must-have coffee table book Bali Living – assures its fame as one of the most distinctive and recognisable villas in Bali. The estate richly deserves its ‘double Bali’ name, as it seamlessly blends the very best of contemporary and traditional Bali design influences to create a truly unique trio of residences.

Villa Bali Bali is distinguished by dramatic overlapping roofs of ironwood shingle that are diagonally pitched to skim the ground and carve angled living spaces which appear cavernous and yet intimate in the same breath. The interiors draw on the island’s wealth of natural materials: walls of Palimanan and lava stone; teakwood, Benkirai and varnished pebble floors; ceilings lined with rattan reeds and customised furniture crafted from wood, coconut shell and huge slabs of stone. Indonesia’s cultural heritage finds expression here too with a stunning collection of statues, panels, textiles and artefacts sourced from across Indonesia’s eastern archipelago.

Three individual residences make up the Villa Bali Bali, each set in beautiful landscaped gardens with open living spaces and private pool: the three-bedroom Villa Bali Bali One, two-bedroom Bali Bali Two and 2 (+1) bedroom Bali Bali Cottage – which can only be booked in conjunction with either of the others. A team of 15 staff is on hand to ensure guests are happily cosseted and cared for. And for those who want to break away from the serenity of the estate, the bright lights of Seminyak with its boutiques, bars, restaurants and surf breaks are just a few kilometres to the south.

LOCATION

Villa Bali Bali is located in a quiet residential area between the traditional villages of Umalas and Banjar Semer on Bali’s south-west coast.  The estate is set well off the road down a private drive lined with tall palms, and faces rice terraces across the garden.  There are a few small cafés within walking distance, and many more a kilometre to the north in Canggu.  Bali’s finest restaurants such as Metis, Sarong, Sardine and La Lucciola are just six kilometres to the south in chic Seminyak – a 15-minute drive away.

BEDROOMS

Bali Bali One

The large two-level master bedroom at Bali Bali One is furnished with a four-poster king-size bed and has sliding doors onto a private courtyard. A few steps down, the dressing area opens to an ensuite bathroom with walk-in shower and large circular jacuzzi bathtub overlooking a private garden.

The two guestrooms – one furnished with a four-poster king-size bed, the other with a queen bed – share an ensuite bathroom with twin black granite basins and a large shower. All three air-conditioned bedrooms have warm teakwood floors and soothing mood lighting.

Bali Bali Two

Configured in a fan shape, Bali Bali Two’s large air-conditioned bedrooms are defined by the contours of their roofs. Warm and inviting, with king-size beds, burnished teak floors and rattan-lined ceilings, each room has its unique charm.

The master bedroom has sliding glass doors onto a private garden, and a large ensuite bathroom with shower, granite basin, inset dressing table and sunken terrazzo tub looking onto tropical foliage. The guest bedroom opens directly onto the pool deck. Its large ensuite has twin basins and a garden-view shower. Both bathrooms are air-conditioned.

Bali Bali Cottage

The master bedroom at Bali Bali Cottage enjoys the privacy of a separate building linked to the rest of the villa by a sunny courtyard. Two large twin beds, with plenty of space between, are backed by a long display shelf above which hang outriggers from traditional jukungfishing boats. To the side is the ensuite bathroom with shower while, beyond the bedroom window, the plunge pool encourages refreshing dips.

The guest bedroom on the cottage’s mezzanine floor offers a rich cabin-style experience. A double bed is contoured around the sloping roof and surrounded by wardrobes custom-built to the room’s unique shape. A wall of glass, with wooden louvres for privacy, looks down onto the living room, off which is a compact third bedroom with single bed – perfect for a child or nanny. These two bedrooms share a sun-dappled bathroom with twin granite sinks and a shower under a glazed pergola roof.
