Choose from four different, magnificent, free-standing villas on this sprawling, seaside estate.
Up to seven bedrooms with ensuite bathroom and showers divided amongst four uniquely designed villas.
Each villa offers breakfast, complimentary WiFi, individually-controlled A/C, satellite TV, full linens, toiletries, two bottles of drinking water per day, daily maid service from 7 am to 9 pm, free beach chairs on the ocean in front of the villa's semi-private beach, shared elegant infinity swimming pool size 4 x 11 meters, private terrace and full concierge with cooking service available by request for approximately 21 dollars (250K rupiah, IDR) per meal for up to ten diners; she can shop at the open air and local markets if you'd prefer (you would pay, of course, for the groceries).
This multi-million dollar set of villas offers unparalleled luxury interpreted within a classic sacred setting. These serene villas, designed by renowned Dutch architect Henk Vos, are built in the heart of the beautiful "Batu Jimbar" seaside neighborhood within Sanur.
Unlike so many rentals that advertise "5 minutes" to the sea, these villas are actually on the direct beach access road, just 150 meters from the ocean.
After entering through the old Balinese stone gates, you really do feel the immediate tranquility of this special place. Walking over a small modern stone bridge-path, crossing the lotus pond, you see the set of villas, each made with traditional Balinese "alang-alang" roofs, complemented with cool modern, solid white walls, all contrasted with the beautiful green manicured lawn and gardens. Several beautifully placed lotus ponds add to the villa's genuine serenity and elegance.
This villa has all the modern facilities you wish for in your home away from home. For those who desire total privacy in an exclusive, spacious accommodation in an exceptional setting, yet with quick, easy, wide, well-paved access right to the main road, Jalan Danau Tamblingan, of Sanur, with all the shops and restaurants just a short stroll away.
Due to its close proximity to the sea, a light beach breeze flows through these magnificent villas, no matter which one you choose.
The pool, pergola, open lounge spaces, and manicured grounds are shared for all reserved guests to enjoy.
Because of the cleaning schedule and the traditional duties of the genuine Balinese staff, the check-in and check-out times must be adhered to. Early check-ins and late check-outs beyond the specified times will require a surcharge. We do regret this one inflexibility, but we hope you will forgive this trade-off to allow the Balinese time for their schedules to family obligations and religious ceremonies.
Great stay and service. Thank you very much Scott and Elisabeth.
Scott and Elisabeth were great hosts.
Scott has more than one listing in Bali, and it was hard for me to choose, since they all looked beautiful. After a few miscommunications on availability, a place was confirmed. He was very prompt at responding and really takes pride in the properties he is representing.
Once in Bali, in terms of the place being accurately represented online. I would say it exceeded my expectations. It was the perfect Balinese retreat that I was looking for. The grounds were spotless, and as I enter the property, the staff were meticulously cleaning the grounds. This wasn't just a one time thing, but was an everyday thing.
Unfortunately Scott wasn't there to greet me on arrival, but Elisabeth was there. As I mention to Scott and Elisabeth, I travel frequently and so I have become very self sufficient in even the most foreign places. But Elisabeth was very friendly and I utilized her knowledge as a local for things ranging from restaurant advice, transportation, to spa recommendations. And I have to say, she knows her stuff since all the recommendations turned out to be great, not a bad experience was had.
Again back to the property. I was fortunate to stay at Villa Lotus for a week, and at the time, the other three villas were free as well. I had the whole place to myself, which made for a wonderful relaxing time. Breakfast was made every morning, I just said what time I wanted to eat and it showed up right on my private veranda.
The villas are only a very very short walk down a small street. You will see entrances to other private villas on the same street. This provided a level of comfort and security for me as a solo traveler. Also known there is a guard at night. The beach as advertised was fantastic. There was a section where a beach lounger was provided for my villa. One advice is not to show up too late, since they fill up quickly. But during my entire stay, I always got a chair when I showed up. Also, at the beach you get to see one of Scott's other properties which was cool for comparisons sake.
The neighborhood, has a very sophisticated but yet down to earth feeling. I wanted to be in an area with good nightlife but not near part of Bali which is frequented by young party goers. This is exactly what I got, and I could not have asked for anything more. A quick walk up the street and I was surrounded by restaurants, warungs, supermarkets, convenience stores and shopping stores. Basically the perfect location.
I wish I had more space to write more about my experience. But all I can say is I thoroughly enjoyed my time in Bali and especially at Scott and Elisabeth's villas. I would not hesistate to recommend this place to anyone. And I hope to be back soon!
Thanks Scott and Elisabeth!
We really enjoyed hosting Nat, and the staff, particularly the female staff, were quite taken with him. He was very patient with the initial hiccups in the reservation process which was wholly on our side. Elisabeth and I have to be constantly vigilant that no one has double-booked the rooms while our collective backs are turned! Elisabeth enjoyed speaking with Nat who is a worldly, peripatetic doctor, a profession that commands great respect in Bali -- another reason Nat was a big hit. Communication was swift and easy with him, and he was very receptive to our suggestions and recommendations. He was a great guest, and we hope he will come back and maybe visit our new villa in a grove of 19th-century mango trees not far away.
When planning for a long weekend in Sanur, we were lucky enough to stumble on this place for the most relaxing weekend I can remember. Everything about the property is outstanding-- a spacious, beautiful layout with a great pool, numerous areas to sit and relax outside, and bright, well-appointed rooms. The location is also excellent-- just a few minutes' walk from some of Sanur's best restaurants, shops, a convenience store, and dive shops, and no more than 100m from the public beach. nonetheless, the setback from the main street is sufficient to ensure the villa itself stays tranquil and serene. the staff at the property were extremely kind-- flexible on hours for preparing breakfast, and very helpful without being obtrusive. Scott could not have been a better host and was an excellent communicator before and during our stay. Whether we needed help setting up a car from the airport, some suggestions for restaurants or snorkeling spots, or help extending our stay an extra day, he never let more than an hour go by before responding (and his responses usually came within minutes). we would definitely stay here again!
I can't recommend highly enough this property and Scott and Elisabeth as hosts. In fact, it's one of those situations where I'm almost reluctant to praise it too much for fear it will become too popular and will be booked out the next time I want to stay - I would love this wonderful place to be my own secret hideaway! The villas and grounds are truly beautiful - very well designed and built, thoughtfully and tastefully appointed and very well maintained. I was visiting by myself, traveling for work, and stayed in the villa Lumbung - which was ideally private, peaceful and well set up. For several nights during my stay other guests occupied one of the other villas - but the layout of the grounds afforded privacy such that we had to go out of our way to bump into each other.
I also want to thank Scott and Elisabeth, who were both such attentive, helpful and warm hosts - which was additionally impressive given the fact they were overseas for the duration of my stay. They responded swiftly to every question and concern, were incredibly helpful (and effective!) in sorting everything out and made me feel very well looked after.
Ibu Nyoman and her team were fantastic, making sure I had whatever I needed, but doing so in such an unobtrusive and efficient manner that it felt like everything just magically fell into place.
Thank you for a lovely few days.
