You’ve just committed to a week’s holiday in Bali. You have booked your flights, so now your focus is firmly on accommodation. This can be quite an overwhelming experience as there are just so many accommodation options; from Seminyak to Canggu, thousands of houses are now available for rent.
We have just been and I could not recommend highly enough the very beautiful, traditional and peaceful, Villa Bella.
If you are like me and just want to completely relax for a week and can’t bear the thought of negotiating grid lock traffic but want to indulge in a week of pampering, this is the Villa for you.
Villa Bella was built some 20 years ago by Jane Corser. Everything about this slice of paradise exudes style and tranquillity. When Jane purchased the land it was literally in the jungle, now Villa Bella is centrally located in KuWum just a 10 minute drive from all the trendy restaurants, bars, shopping and night life of Seminyak, if you dare to be tempted away from heaven!
Villa Bella is set on 16 acres of land and is unique in that its vista is an un-interrupted view of terraced rice fields, so you feel like you are staying in solitude miles from anywhere. The gardens are lush and immaculately maintained by Nyoman who will also be your driver for your stay.
There is a beautiful swimming pool with two protected day beds where you can read, sleep or indulge in a five star massage by the very talented Putu.
Villa Bella has three massive bedrooms all with their own ensuites. The central dining/lounge room is grand and welcoming and from this space you can take in the magnificent garden and surrounding vista.
Ketut has been with Villa Bella for 25 years and she makes this holiday complete. She is divine, a real treasure and is an extremely accomplished cook and is also a devoted baby sitter. Ketut runs Villa Bella with her family who in turn become your extended family by the end of your stay.
This Villa always gets rave reviews and guests return time and again to cement its five star rating.
