Ready to be pampered? We think so
We are in a charming quiet village called Kuwum. We are next to Banjar Semer, Umalas and close (around five minutes) to Canggu & Pettitenget, ( the current " hot spots" of Bali) - Seminyak is 12 minutes away. The closest beach is less than ten minutes away - great for an early morning walk or sunset stroll. All these areas can be accessed by scooter & push bike fast on small private roads for those who prefer to avoid traffic and major roads. You can hear the ocean at night from the villa. The locals are lovely kind and helpful and more than happy to show you short cuts to where you are going to. Great cafes, yoga studios, and the Canggu sports club are just five minutes away.
If you wish to explore the island and why wouldn't you? There is so much to do and see. We are very well located. We are out of the traffic gridlock of Kuta so journey times to Ubud West and East coasts and the center of the island is considerably less. This is why our location is so desired by the ex-pat scene.
Airport collection & drop offs are included int he rate.
We are happy to arrange car and bikes for you. A personal driver can also be arranged for your day trips. We have two bicycles at the house to enjoy rides to the beach or around the village. There is a taxi rank close by and they get to the house in less than 5 minutes.

We stayed 4 Weeks in the wunderful Villa Bella.
Everything was very well organized and went smoothly. The staff is courteous and very helpful . Ketut is a wonderful cook. The house is in a very good shape and very good looked after. We highly recommend Villa Bella!
It's easy to go anywhere by taxi or moped. In a view minutes drive are many very good restaurants and places to be.
We hope to come back and would love to stay there again!
This villa is truly amazing. I have nothing bad, or even remotely negative, to say about it. It´s like paradise on earth.
The interior, the garden and the overall feeling in the house is very harmonious, nothing is left to chance. You will find yourself at peace as soon as you enter the villa.
The most extraordinary experience is meeting the staff. They are the kindest, most professional and responsive people I´ve met. We stayed for a month and had friends and family with kids in all ages (from 8months to 6 years) coming and going, and nothing was ever a problem. They made everyone feel at home. Nothing is hard or complicated, they made us relax and enjoy immensely, I´m so thankful.
We just left a couple days ago and I´m positive that we will come back.
We thoroughly enjoyed our time at Villa Bella. Jane was so great and patient with all my pre-arrival questions and Nyoman met us at the airport and whisked us to the beautiful villa as planned. Our whole family loved our time there and we were so well looked after it was very hard to leave. The villa has everything you could possibly ever need and more with Ketut's delicious cooking and Nyoman's assistance with getting us where we needed to go.
Hopefully we will get back to Villa Bella when we return to Bali.
Beautiful Bali style villa. It is not only a place to sleep but whole Bali way of life experience. Open (without windows) living room, kitchen and bathrooms gives a unique filing of surrounding nature. Staff which is running the villa is very helpful (transportation, cooking, cleaning). You must ask for the best ever had brownie cake :)
Our stay at villa Bella was fantastic. It is a very cozy place. The house plus the garden are lovingly arranged, neat and well treated by the staff every day. You always feel welcome, and all wishes are promptly fulfilled. Ketut must actually be a yet unknown “star” cook! Her cooking is awesomely tasty, no matter if she cooks indoneese style, (which is well adapted to the European taste) or westerly dishes.
We had such a marvelous time at Villa Bella and we will recommend it to 100%.
A huge thanks to everyone who made our stay such an unforgettable and gorgeous one.

Australian born traveller - been living and loving Bali for over 25 years.
I built Villa Bella in the early 90's - I still have the same amazing husband and Wife - Nyoman & Ketut who run the Villa. They are my family and will take great care of you. Ketut is an amazing cook and Nyoman will look after you every need.
Hope to meet you
