Family Sun & Swim in Bali

“There is no better entrance after a flight than walking through the gate down to the main house,” say the owners of Istana Semer Villa in Bali. “You’re welcomed by the smell of tube roses floating on the breeze coming from the pool and garden ahead.” And yet, when the beauty of this place quietly reveals itself to you – lotus ponds and tropical gardens, an infinity pool overlooking the rice paddies both flecked by golden light – you might still be surprised.

Spread across 4,000 sqm, this is an iconic villa with classic accommodations in Umalas. Families will appreciate all of the kid-friendly details, from a shallow end in the pool where little ones can paddle around with confidence, to a clubhouse with a pool table, to Made and Putu, the villa caretakers and chefs, who are trained to teach Balinese cooking to groups of all ages.

If a visit to the land of sacred peaks, quilts of rice fields and peaceful vibes is in your future, this villa is worthy of your consideration. Putu will make sure that plenty of Bloody Marys on tap (his specialty) will be ready for you.

Description

This villa in Bali has five bedrooms and five bathrooms. The heart of the villa is the main pavilion consisting of the living room and dining area which seats up to 10 people, plus the office and an indoor plunge pool with a day bed. 

Considered “La piece de resistance” is Istana Semer’s impressive kitchen, where Putu and Made unspool their endless knowledge of Balinese culture and cuisine. At the back of the main pavilion, there is a secret study room that beckons an afternoon nap or a movie: it has a large satellite TV, and a DVD/CD player with a movie library.

Outside, the Club House sits above the pool, with a terrace that has a dining table with seating for up to 14 people. This room has a good view of the gardens and pool, if the parents would like to enjoy themselves at a safe distance. It also has a bar and fridge, and adjacent to it, there is an air-conditioned second TV room (another great nap nest). Many events have been successfully thrown in this room. 

The villa has five generous en-suite double bedrooms, with the master and second bedroom featuring baths (the rest have showers). The upstairs master bedroom has views of the garden from a lovely terrace and its own little sitting room area, dressing room and large bathroom with bath and shower. This room has a TV with international channels and a DVD player. 

The four guest bedrooms are on the ground floor of the villa and all have typically tropical indoor/outdoor bathrooms. One includes a day bed on the veranda, a lovely retreat with a good book before dinner.

The villa also has an events team, who are also able to organize special dinners, menus, and beautifully laid-out table settings: they have access to the island’s best bartenders, extra service staff and babysitters. For special occasions, they can also arrange for talent; from magicians to dancers and beyond. Please inquire with Putu. 

AROUND

Bali is known for gastronomic tourism, and the owners are proud to recommend their favorite dining spots that are all within 20 minutes of driving from the villa. There is Sardine, in Seminyak, with its view that overlooks the stunning rice fields, perfect for lunch or dinner and just a ten-minute drive from the villa. La Lucciola is a joglo-style beachfront restaurant that serves all day. 

For dinner, the owners recommend Metis for its white-tablecloth setting that transforms into a DJ and party atmosphere in the evening, or the buzzy Asian restaurant Mama San. For an unfussy, Neopolitan-style pizza, tuck into the wood-fired deliciousness at Da Maria. Kids are encouraged to enter the big open kitchen and make their own. 

Recommended for groups, Mera Putih serves modern and traditional Indonesian tapas in an elegant setting with triple-height ceilings with indoor palm trees. And Som Chai, by the celebrity street food chef, Will Meyrick, is a grand Thai cuisine experience with elements of live performance.
