Villas provide a level of privacy that you don’t usually get with hotels and resorts. What people love about renting a villa also means keeping certain amenities private. For example, only your kids and family will get to use the swimming pool or spa bathtub instead of every guest in the hotel. So, even though it’s a little bit pricier, I believe some things are just worth investing in.
Keep reading if you’d also like to ensure your five-star stay is as secluded as possible. I’ll help you find the best villas for all types of holidays.
1. Alila Villa Uluwatu
This modern resort has interiors designed to complement nature. Nestled on a Uluwatua cliff, it gives you the best view of the Indian Ocean, even from a distance. What I love about Alila Villas Uluwatu is how the management recognises that the groups of visitors can come in many sizes. So, depending on the group size and budget, you can check into luxury pool villas with as many as three bedrooms.
Thanks to its location up on a cliff, attractions here have perks you won’t get with an average beachfront accommodation. Instead of looking from a balcony, you can enjoy ocean views from the big pool by the cliff. You can even make it more unique by using a floating cabana. Looking at everything below, you can drink a cocktail as you relax. But I guarantee your eyes will feast on the beautiful sea views and the tropical sunset. Bali’s top dining spots for lunch or dinner are close to all luxury villas. So, if you feel like you’ve spent all your energy for the day, you can eat right away instead of walking or driving a distance from the hotel. Alila Villa proves that Bali, Indonesia, offers more than beachfront access.
For the price of US $660++ per night, you can book your stay at this beautiful villa.

The inside of the house blends smoothly with the outdoor areas, inviting guests to enjoy the fresh air. They can relax in the pool or the gazebo in the daytime and the nighttime. The gardens outside are very well taken care of, and traditional Balinese lanterns make the villa feel genuine.

In all corners of this private retreat, you can see Balinese influences. The architecture mimics the tropical feel that made Bali a world-class destination. They use traditional materials and styles in the villa itself and around the resort. Bamboo walls and traditional decor are not something you’d see nowadays, so it’s refreshing to see that kind of beauty here! And to top it off, there are also a lot of water features and tropical gardens.
Villa Waterlily may not be near sand beaches, but you can still enjoy the waters during your stay. Within the estate is a swimming pool where you can take a dip. But if you’d rather rest, there are also daybeds by the pool. This place is also the perfect sport if you want to maximise the experiences you can have while in the region. Because it’s near Seminyak centre, trips to several famous shopping destinations, kitchens, and dining areas will be easy. After a long day, trust that your choice of accommodation has living spaces where you can relax and find serenity.

5. Villa Metisse
Four big rooms, open living areas, a high level of security and a lot of outdoor space for family fun: Villa Metisse checks every item off the list. That’s why I’m sure big families will all find their own space in this tropical paradise. Children will have all the space they need to run around, while the adults can lounge somewhere for good conversations.
Here, you won’t get a butler service, but you will definitely enjoy the terrace with fantastic views where you can have quality time with your family. I think that family is our best source of inspiration, and there is nothing better you can strive for in the company of azure ocean views.
To keep you cool under the tropical heat, take a dip in the swimming pool! Afterwards, you can get in touch with everyone on the deck or in the living room. If you love cooking, the kitchen has high-end tools to help you make your favourite Asian cuisine from scratch.

6. Villa Nonnavana
I don’t know if it’s just me, but villas should give you more than just personal beds and bathrooms. If you agree, Villa Nonnavana will be your perfect vacation home. If you’re looking for a way to shower yourself with experiences without leaving the property, this gem in Kuta, Bali, will give you everything you’re looking for on your vacation. Once you hear the pristine waters of the Indian Ocean and the waves hitting the shore, your heart will never leave Bali.
But if you want to make your stay as secluded as possible, their Balinese holiday homes have everything needed to make the visit memorable. You can enjoy being in the water even far from the sandy shores. After all, there’s a swimming pool where you can cool down, surrounded by manicured green grass, lush tropical plants, and beautiful gardens.
To spend time with your friends, I recommend the big area outside with a grill, so you can barbecue some meat and share a few drinks with your friends. As the day ends, enjoy one of the most beautiful sunsets. Meanwhile, inside the pool villa are four bedrooms with unique architectural details where everyone can rest. And if you’re in the first bedroom, the pool deck will practically be at your doorstep.
Your private escape in Villa Nonnavana is priced at US $442++ per night.

Like traditional homes in the countryside, their villas follow the old-school style of having huge lawns and top-notch views. Of course, the staff also added modern facilities and amenities to make your stay as comfortable as possible.
My favourite part is how you don’t have to give up the views even as you’re resting. Thanks to the floor-to-ceiling windows featured in each bedroom, you can take in the tranquil view right until you fall asleep and as soon as the sun shines in the morning. Then, sink deeper into the rural ambience by getting into the stone bathtub to give your mind an escape from all the world’s worries.

8. Villa Karein
Located in Cemagi village, Villa Karein is an excellent option for a few days away from the city jungle. This property was designed with the concept of openness in mind. That’s why it has a lot of open spaces that you can breathe life into… at least you leave this holiday home until your next stop in Bali!
The interior design is also something you’d adore. The white walls make every room seem bigger, while the collection of Bohemian decor keeps it from looking too plain. And as a huge fan of bamboo decor, I love the bamboo staircase that leads to the rooftop. While there, don’t forget to enjoy a drink or two as you watch the sun go down.

I have been living in Bali for ten years and exploring this island is a never-ending journey. The island is always developing and the variety of tourists is growing, but one of the best enjoyments of living here is that you can always visit and stay in a villa for a getaway at the weekend or take a break from the hustle and bustle of working life.
Here is my selection of the three best villas in Bali:
Alila Villa, Noku Beach House, and Toraja Villa.
I picked these villas as my best three because the locations are perfect, and they have a nice vibe, the ambiance and beautiful atmosphere of a tropical island, and the service is amazing. They provide all that you need to enjoy your holiday and the many breathtaking moments as soon as you enter the villa.
We understand that picking what’s best for your holiday itinerary is challenging because Bali has so many options. We are here to pick the best selections for you!
