The space

Villa Tao draws a number of unique features together to make it a truly special place to stay. The owner designed the house focusing using only the best recycled timbers and with a focus on collecting and saving water. The 2 expansive upstairs bedrooms are 200year old Javanese Gladek houses which have been slightly modified to maximise the mesmerising views and increase comfort levels yet still give you that antique, old teak wood feel. King bed, AC, ceiling fans, TV, DVD, ipod dock sterio come standard. The en-suite bathrooms are all moulded black polished concrete complete with 2 showers (1inside, 1 outside), and a bath. In fact each bedroom has its own 20sqm private balcony and feels like your very own little house. ‘Oh’ and did I mention ocean views from every bedroom window?

The expansive living and dinning area have been interestingly designed to fully capture the cool ocean breezes, take in the spectacular ocean vistas and integrate the 18m infinity pool so it feels like the pool and ocean are all part of the living space! There is a large Ulin hardwood table with luxurious cow hide leather arm chairs, easily seating 10 guests, a huge sunken lounge over looking the pool and ocean and there is also a massive media room equipped with the latest LED TV, BluRay DVD player, High speed WIFI and Satelite TV. Throughout the living area, pool area and rooftop there is an integrated sound system with 3 zones and ipod docking station for ease of use.

The rooftop has been turned into a 170sqm ‘greenroof’ entertaining area. This really is the perfect place for a cocktail, take in the sunset and listen to some relaxing music through the rooftop sound system.

Villa Tao is easily the most beautiful home in the area. And much bigger and more gorgeous than it appears in the photos. The view is breathtaking. You constantly have an ocean view. The staff are incredibly kind and accommodating. The surf break in front of the house is mostly rocks so be prepared with footwear if you need it; same thing for crossing the river. We had a blast crossing the river and trekking up the hill to the house at night being guided by the fires on the beach.

Amazing amazing place to stay in Balian!! We loved the staff here and the chef was absolutely amazing :) everyone was so friendly and made our stay very comfortable. The pool wasn't working on the first day which was a shame however it was fixed the following day!

The house and location are gorgeous - the house is a beautiful mixture of modern concrete minimalism and traditional Javanese wood bungalows. The staff was present and attentive but we felt that the service was weak, especially for this price level. In Bali, at this price, you expect to have really amazing service and amenities. The problem didn't seem to be with the staff but with the policies - there were extra charges for literally EVERYTHING other than breakfast (eggs, toast and tea/coffee, juice or meat were extra) and drinking water; there was no shampoo or soap in the rooms, towels weren't cleaned thoroughly (even after placing them on the floor they were coming back folded up but smelling of mold), and there is an issue with toilet paper - you can't flush it (presumably because the sewage goes straight into the ocean, which is common in Bali) but the trash cans aren't cleaned out regularly. When we arrived there was already dirty tissue in these bins, from a previous guest, which is really quite disgusting. Even with that, it wasn't emptied the next day until we spoke to the manager, after which it was emptied every day. All that said, the setting is remarkably beautiful and extremely peaceful, the house is very cool and the pool is very big by Balinese standards so you can actually swim laps. And the staff was very helpful and corrected a lot of the problems once we mentioned them. We just feel that more essentials and amenities - shampoo, conditioner, soaps, tea/coffee throughout the day, juices, etc - should be offered for a place that costs this much, in a place where actual 5-star villas are available for much less money, with the amenities and service you'd expect in a luxury accommodation.

This is a hidden paradise. We had a fantastic stay at francoise villa. His staffs are helpful. The multilevel living area and the panorama ocean view make it a perfect place for a large group gathering and celebration. Balian has the finest black sand beach in bali. We are surprised that not many tourist know about this part of the island. I highly recommend it.

We had a really Nice stay at Villa Tao! the place is gorgeous with an amazing view and direct access to the beach which is quite unique. If you are looking for calm vacation, far form Kuta or Seminiak area to discover a different face of Bali, it is definitely the place. you can go for walks from the villa or rent surfboards! Francoise was very responsive and helped us organize our trip well...

I am a French skier , living half of the year in the French Alpes and the rest of the time traveling around Asia with a base in Hong Kong and in Bali .
I share my time looking after the beautiful Deluxe Chalet d ' Edmond in les Arcs , France and the famous Villa Tao in Bali , with an amazing view of the Indian Ocean .
I love sharing my passion of these two places with people I met along and to know that they spend a great time there brings me tremendous plaisir
