The Space

Welcome to the Villa Hibiscus, a one-of-a-kind, romantically rustic, three-bedroom treasure chest of a holiday residence offering the authenticity and charm of Balinese design and hospitality with all the mod cons one would expect in a modern villa: and it’s just a five-minute stroll from the calm waters of Merta Sari Beach in Sanur on Bali’s southeast shore.

Characterized by thatched roofs, antique furnishings and vast, semi-open-air living areas and a private 18 meter swimming pool, the villa is blessed with heavenly landscaped gardens filled with fishponds and fountains, tall trees and tropical flowers that attract butterflies, dragonflies and beautiful birds day and night, creating a magical holiday environment perfect for families or groups of friends.

Villa Hibiscus’s gardens pays homage to nature’s glory and were designed by renowned landscaper/ architect and Bali personality, Made Wijaya, an Australian expat with a passion for all things Bali and a strong believer in both tradition and nature.

18-metre swimming pool is attended by sun loungers and cushioned gazebos providing villa’s guests the ultimate excuse for relaxation, while the lush, overflowing gardens and fish ponds create countless nooks and leafy hideaways to keep kids enchanted for days.

With all its beauty, space and service, and within easy walking distance of a safe swimming beach and many shops and restaurants, Villa Hibiscus is an ideal getaway for groups of friends seeking the quiet life, and especially good for families as kids will have the time of their lives letting spirits and imaginations run wild.

Interaction with Guests

Villa Hibiscus is staffed by a great team of local people who will treat you like honored guests, and who you may very well come to see as family. They are as friendly as the day is long and will ensure that you want for nothing in your holiday.

Nyoman Jirnu is the Villa Manager and a wonderful chef, has been here since Villa Hibiscus opened in 1984 and she knows everything there is to know about the villa and the local area. She speaks fluent English and can cook almost anything from anywhere in the world, East or West, but just make sure you try her Balinese dishes – they are her specialty.

Kadek is the housekeeper and she is here to keep your glass filled, make your beds, do your laundry and make sure you have the best time possible - and always with a smile.

Made is the husband of Nyoman and he is the Head gardener and a pool man and he is ably assisted in his tasks by his assistant, Gede. Just take a look at the condition of the beautifully kept garden and pool and you will see that they are well up to the task.

Robertius is an on-call driver for the brand-new 7-seater Toyota Kijang Innova villa's mini-van and he will (at extra cost of IDR 550,000 + petrol per day) take you anywhere on the island you want to go. He knows Bali like a native but his English isn’t so good so plan your itinerary with Nyoman before you set out.

The Neighborhood

Villa Hibiscus is located down a quiet residential back-road in the historical village of Sanur on Bali’s southeastern coast. Sanur was Bali’s original tourist enclave and is characterized by shady lanes, vine-draped coral walls, sedate leafy compounds, majestic trees and a five-kilometre shoreline within a gentle reef-sheltered lagoon, making it safe for swimming, and is home to many consulates, and large garden estates of wealthy locals and expats

The island’s first simple guest rooms were constructed here in the late 1940s, heralding the age of modern tourism. Today Sanur is the domain of well-heeled tourists, who like its mellow, restful and cosmopolitan ambience. Foreign visitors rub shoulders with the locals, chic fashion shops are bordered by traditional markets, and a plethora of hidden temples can be found in between of art galleries and nice restaurants.

Sailing boats dot the horizon, and old men in conical hats linger on the stone jetties with their fishing rods while contemplating the aquatic aerobatics of the kite surfers.

Almost the entire coastline is built up by a luxurious private residences and hotels with exceptional gardens and a paved esplanade runs the length of the sandy beach, recently saved from erosion by an impressive landscaping and conservation project that has also safeguarded the coral reef. Cycling and walking along this pathway is a great way to explore the local community and watch the sun rise. Along this path are a wide selection of small restaurants and cafes where it is possible to rent a sun lounger for a small fee and spend a most pleasant afternoon on the sand.

Located just five minutes’ walk from the villa is Merta Sari Beach, normally a very quiet and peaceful beach and popular with tourists, which on Sundays comes alive with the sights and sounds of the local villagers who converge on the sand to run huge kites, swim, buy and sell food, and have a good time.

Strolling up the beach walk from Merta Sari are a variety of cafes, restaurants, coffee shops and sports bars that offer a good choice of where to spend your time. A short taxi ride away in the centre of town are wide selection of restaurants offering everything from Chinese, Indonesian, Italian, Japanese, Spanish cuisine, Australian steaks and fresh seafood.

From Sanur is very convenient to explore the central and northern part of the island:
- Ubud, the cultural capital of Bali: 40 minutes,
- Bali Bird and Reptile Park: 30 minutes,
- White water rafting and quad biking trips: 45 minutes,
- Bali Elephant Park: 45 minutes,
- Bali Safari and Marine Park: 30 minutes,

  • Our family of 5 had a wonderful stay at Karma Cantik, villa 42 at the Karma Kandara Resort. The villa is bright, spacious and had a lovely Balinese ambiance with a gorgeous tropical garden and infinity pool. Our children delighted in playing on the grass and swimming in the pool (with complimentary pool toys) while my husband and I relaxed on the sun drenched deck. There was everything we needed during our stay including a huge fruit basket on arrival, iron, toiletries and even DVDs and colouring in books for the children. Our stay was facilitated by the lovely and very helpful 'butler' Eric and 'driver' Nyman who were easily contacted with local mobile phone left in the Villa. We enjoyed all the resorts other facilities including the beach club on one of Bali's best beaches, swimming pool and kids club. Many thanks to Vasily and his team...we will definitely stay here again on our next visit to Bali.
    Note - best I leave doors closed when not outside as local monkeys like to visit!
    Also, as with many areas in Bali, there is construction and clearing of land occurring with in limited view and earshot of villa. This was not too much of an inconvenience, just worth mentioning.

  • 酒店环境非常好,景色很棒,只是服务实在不敢恭维,签单消费搞错三次,而且都是多算,不仔细看就被啃了!

  • The villa is very nice and clean as we see in the picture, all the staffs are all very nice, they helped us to solve many problems we met in Bali! We are very happy to stay here, and it seems that we are at home, we'll be here again when back to Bali!

  • We rented the place for a week and had a wonderful time. The manager Oxana welcomed us and after that we handled by two wonderful butlers Eta an Fauzan who were polite friendly and efficient. The villa was clean and spacious for the 6 of us. The breakfast that is included in the price was very good and so was the chef when we had him cook a meal. The car with the villa is also very useful as you don't need to worry about transport. All in all a nice stay.

  • The Villa was fantabulous for the 6 of us and the kids loved the private pool and the boat ride to Tg Benoa port, the mangroveand turtle sanctuary.
    The crew- eap our butler Oka, Atun amd Chef Bagus, as well as Made the driver wasvery helpful with placesto visit-all made our stay memorable ❤️
    Our only complaint was the weather....but that only means we'll be back soon in the summer months!

    December 2013
  • We had an amazing 6 days at Villa Puri Nirwana. A perfect place for a family reunion! All
    the rooms and bathrooms are huge and the common areas and the garden are beautiful and there is plenty of space for everyone. The staff were always on hand and couldn't be more accommodating. The chef cooked everything we asked and we loved the local dishes he introduced us to. We had 16 people - kids and adults - and didn't want to leave the house if we didn't have to! The spa at the back of the property made it so relaxing - if you felt like a treatment you had one! The surf right put front was perfect and our kids enjoyed jumping the fence and learning to juggle with the locals. 5 minutes away is Keramas beach - an international surfing spot - and a great place for lunch and a drink. Sanur is around 20 minutes away and the drive into restaurants in Seminyak is about 45 but the driver was on hand if we wanted to go out......which wasn't often. Thanks to All of the staff for making us sad to leave .....

VillaNaBali vacation rentals and management company
About
Hi, I'm Vasily and I'm the founder of the VillaNaBali vacation rentals and management company. I first came to Bali in 2007 for a New Year's holiday, and somehow me and my friends managed to establish the first Russian-owned property company on the island. My life then changed. I moved here in 2009 and I am till here today. Doing vacation rentals as a profession, I know that it is so important to create a homely feeling in our villas and offer the warm Bali hospitality that people can only experience when they holiday here. Balinese people are outstanding; they are friendly, they smile all the time, and many of them are happy to go the extra mile to make guests happy (as for the Balinese who are not so happy, they don't work in our villas). We love welcoming people from around the world and it is a fantastic experience to share our vision. The other important thing we deliver to our guests is the chance to discover the Island of Gods, and all of its rich culture, traditions and colourful religious rituals. We help each guest to arrange a personalized itinerary and visit the places they most want to see. We have sacred temples, amazing tropical parks, secluded beaches, dramatic cliffs, fantastic rural landscapes with emerald rice fields, mountain rivers to try rafting, jungles and sacred valleys perfect for meditation and yoga. I have spent a lot of time travelling in the island and I still can't say I know it all. I'm very proud of my team of people, Balinese and expats, because they add their love to everything they do. Everyone will discover his or her own Bali and will feel the island in different ways but no one will remain indifferent to it. Come to Bali, and let us do our best to help you really enjoy your holidays. Think only of your holiday not of routine. We promise you heartfelt service from your first and until your last minute of your holiday. Om swastiastu! Selamat datang! Welcome to the Island of Gods!
