Well, you’re not a star (or are you?), but you’ll certainly feel like one here. Enjoy all the space you’ll ever need in the villa’s four bedrooms – and never worry about having to fight for the toilet again (all rooms have their own private toilets).
You can also get into some method acting for the role of couch potato, and lounge all day in the L-shaped pool, which is located right on the beach.
You’ll even have a jacuzzi, where all your worries and muscle pain will drown in the soothing water.
And guess what? The booking price also includes your very own housekeeper, who’ll cook your dinners for you. Just grab the groceries for whatever you feel like eating, and watch as she cooks up a storm!2. Hidden luxury retreat in the unspoiled nature of West Bali: Villa Delmara (from USD $326)
Class, sophistication and magnificent views await at Villa Delmara, located right at Bali’s Balian Beach.
This four-bedroom holiday retreat features a majestic uniquely-designed double-storey villa, a gorgeous free-form infinity pool and a massive garden ruled by endless green lawns and towering coconut palms overlooking the sea.

3. Go on a wildlife adventure – Villa Melah (Villa Awang Awang)
If you grew up watching The Wild Thornberries and love wildlife as much as the eccentric family does, be sure to put Villa Melah on your bucket list!
This charming, 150-year-old teak house is located in Melayang, a traditional Balinese village. With a dense forest right at its doorstep, it’s not surprising that this is the prime location for intimate (and generally safe) encounters with wildlife.
Aside from enjoying the fascinating Dutch colonial designs of the antique furniture in the villa – you can also stretch out on the verandah, and look out for that passing kingfisher or monkey!
On days when you just want to relax and give your tortured-by-UV-rays eyes some well-needed rest, dip into the cooling infinity pool and look at the greenery that abounds.
4. The nature lover’s haven – Hillside Eden Villa
“You’re all surrounded!”
At Hillside Eden Villa, this doesn’t mean you’re going to get arrested. It means you get the luxury of being literally surrounded by nothing but greenery for miles and miles!
This hidden wonder in Ubud is the perfect choice for the avid gardener, and anyone who loves a good splash of green. The 60-acre property is wrapped up in the deep jungle, and even has its own Botanical Gardens.
Everywhere you turn, you’ll see nothing but views. Yes, even in your bedroom, where the huge, private balconies showcase sweeping views of the rainforest and mountains beyond.
The villa is fitted with a game room, where you can enjoy a round of pool with your family. Various tourist hotspots, such as Batur Natural Hot Spring and Gunung Kawi Temple, are also a stone’s throw away – enjoy your own private haven, but never, ever, be bored.
5. Stay in a work-of-art – Elmina Villa Bali
Who needs views when the villa itself is a sight to behold? You no longer have to wreck your brains on which one to choose – at Elmina Villa Bali, you get the best of both worlds.

This 4-bedroom villa in Ungasan is nothing short of an architectural wonder. It may not look super impressive from the outside, but once you step in, you’re in for a surprise.
The mix of minimalist furnishing, wood accents and a touch of nature blend together to make your stay here a relaxing and unique experience.
We wouldn’t mind feasting our eyes on this villa forever, but it one-ups itself by giving you gorgeous views all the way to the coastline – right from the comfort of your couch!
We think we’ve just found our dream home – now all we have to do is win the lottery.
6. Get the true Balinese experience – Villa Kaba Kaba Resort
No trip to Bali is complete without getting a glimpse of its renowned rice fields, and at Villa Kaba Kaba Resort, that’s one thing that’s always in abundance.
Enjoy some quiet family bonding time at their 4-bedroom villa, which is located 30 minutes away from Seminyak and Kuta – far enough to let you keep your privacy, and close enough to keep things convenient.
We doubt you’d want to leave, though. Villa Kaba Kaba is located right next to the rice paddies, so you’ll be able to enjoy the calming view right from your spot in the private pool, or from the sheltered bale.
Okay, scratch that. The open-concept of the villa opens up the space to nature, and no matter where you are, you’ll find views if you look for it. Even your bedrooms face the rice fields, which means that this gorgeous view will be what you wake up to everyday.
7. Travel back to the past – Sejuk Beach Villas
Sejuk Beach Villas’ wooden infrastructure and vintage furniture, will take you back to a time when life was carefree and modern worries were non-existent.
At this beachfront villa, you’ll be able to recharge your tired mind and body, with nothing standing between you and the beauty of the ocean.
And that’s not the only view that the villa has to offer!
As it is sandwiched between rice terraces and the beach, two vastly different views are available to you at the resort.
Crashing blue waves or bright green leaves swaying in the wind? All you have to do is decide.
8. For the infinity pool lover – Villa Puri Balangan
If your aim is to have a short getaway in Bali over the weekend, then Villa Puri Balangan is the perfect choice for you.
Located a mere 25 minutes away from the airport, this villa offers you the perfect vantage point to explore Bali, without having to travel around excessively.
The grounds are also armed with a garden area for BBQ parties, and a perfectly situated seating area for sunset-watching. Honestly, you can have a fulfilling holiday without even stepping out of the estate!

In fact, with an infinity pool so luxurious, we doubt you’ll ever want to come out of the water. Indulge yourself and enjoy the panoramic views of Jimbaran Bay (all the way to the coastline) – just remember to bring an iron to smooth out your wrinkled skin after all that soaking in the water!
