Kerobokan villa description
Villa Banteng is a self contained villa set amongst the lush, green paddy fields of Banjar Anyar, Kerobokan, only minutes from Seminyak.
If you are looking for a FULLY STAFFED unique private hideaway in the Balinese paddy fields, away from the hustle and bustle of Legian, Kuta or Seminyak, but only a short taxi journey away from the best restaurants and nightlife the island has to offer, then please read on.
The villa which is free standing is unique - a combination of the modern and traditional Balinese with all living areas open ( without walls ) except for the bedrooms and bathrooms.
The villa sleeps six, with three bedrooms, all with ensuite bathrooms, living and dining rooms, kitchen, infinity pool, and landscaped tropical gardens. Most rooms offer wonderful garden or pool views.
The pool is private and ample to enjoy swimming laps with a shallow end . There are no pool fences - so the villa may not be suitable for infants or non swimming children, except under close supervision. Even on the warmest days a cool breeze wafts over the rice fields through the open living rooms of the villa. It is only when you leave the villa you might appreciate how warm it is outside.
But why leave?
There are numerous restaurants within walking distance or a short taxi drive away or who deliver - should you not to use the services of your own dedicated cook/chef. The renowned Bali Budda Restaurant (Kerobokan) is a few hundred metres away for those who prefer vegetarian or just a great cup of coffee. Joli - a first class french restaurant - some say the island's best, is about 800 metres away as the crow flies. For the kids and the young at heart El Libre , our favourite mexican restuarant in Bali, is very close - and they deliver. And if you want a professional massage , you don't have to leave the villa as, for a very reasonable cost ,a well trained masseuse will come to the villa ( an hour of traditional massage is about 110,000 Rupiah - about US$12).
And if you want to work on your tan - there is a gently sloping grass lawn to rest your beach towel that overlooks the rice paddy fields or you can lie on the double sunbed on the timber decking overlooking the pool. The gardens are lush and well maintained. You will feel as if you are in a resort - but without the other guests interrupting your privacy.
If you wish to explore the island this villa is well located. You are out of the traffic gridlock of Kuta so journey times to Ubud, up the West Coast and the center of the island are significantly less. This is why this area of Kerobokan is very much favoured by Ex-pats.
The villa, which was architect designed, is a combination of the modern with traditional Balinese architectural features and boasts unique, specially-designed features, including a stunning elevated timber pavilion, built and shipped from the neighbouring island of Sulawesi.
Despite its private location, Villa Banteng is just 10 minutes drive from the fabulous restaurants and nightlife of Legian and Seminyak, 20 minutes from the island’s pre-eminent golf course - Nirwana Bali, and 30 minutes from the airport. Canggu beach is only 10 minutes away by taxi [ as opposed to perhaps half an hour or more in Kuta or Legian] so keen surfers are well placed in the villa - a midpoint between Seminyak [restaurants ] and Canggu [ good surf and beach]
Villa Banteng comes fully serviced with five dedicated staff ( a cook/chef, two butlers/housekeepers, gardener and security togther with a villa manager on call. The chef/cook is available to cook meals from the menu at the cost of the ingredients.
This villa is not part of a complex where the staff are on call for many villas. It is an architect one off with a well trained and experienced staff dedicated to making your stay memorable. You won't have to do a thing. No cleaning, no bed making, no cooking ( unless you want to of course - you might ask Made to show you how to prepare her fried fish Bali style ), no shopping for essentials, no washing clothes. The staff will take care of everything. You will see cheaper villas on this site, but what staffing levels do they provide? A cleaner who comes in once every three days - if that.
Many of our guests have stayed at the Legian, the Obleroi and the Four Seasons and they say that after staying at the villa they will never stay in a hotel in Bali again. And unlike many other villas on tiny allotments this villa has 'space' and gardens - about 750 m2.
And if you want to have a pool party and to entertain some friends who might be in Bali at the same time, not only is there the space but the staff. They will take care of everything. There is a huge sit down dining table that can seat 10. But one guest said they had 37 friends - adults and children - over and the staff handled everything beautifully - at short notice. Try and organise that at a luxuary hotel without paying a king's ransom - if at all.
The daily tariff includes airport pick-up, complimentary breakfast, complimentary toiletries, free wireless internet and laundry services .Car rentals, inhouse massage services and other services can also be arranged at your cost.
The staff are fantastic and the day staff all speak good English and stay unobtrusively in the background unless they are required. The staff have been with the villa for many years. The staff are a friendly and well trained team whether it be arranging a restaurant booking, or making you a Mojito. The villa has had English and Australian owners and the staff are well trained to Western standards.

Where do we begin? We arrived two hours late yet we were still met by the staff, Augus, Theresia, and Kadek, along with a delicious and hot prepared meal that we had requested. Everything we requested prior to our arrival was on hand and in order. Upon waking the next morning, even though Augus gave us a quick walkthrough the previous night, we were surprised by our spacious accommodations. Beautiful, luxurious… Once we were up and ready for the day, the staff prepared our morning meal. We elected just fruit and toast, but it was not simply fruit and toast, the presentation for this and every meal thereafter was wonderful. Service during our stay was phenomenal and seemed to have gotten better with each passing hour. The villa is comfortable enough for families, couples, and anyone looking to visit Bali. Expect to feel like royalty! The warmth of the villa allows you to enjoy staying in. The surroundings, the staff and the ambience lets you enjoy a dip in the pool, watch movies outdoors or in the bedroom, all the while having the staff on hand to meet any needs. Definitely take advantage of the menu at Villa Banteng. Kadek, a five star cook in our eyes, prepares meals upon your request. The pumpkin coco prawn soup and the chicken prawn sates were my absolute favorite. Absolutely delicious! Our first time in Bali but we would come back again and readily stay in Villa Banteng (if available) without hesitation because of the friendly and knowledgeable staff. Augus, Theresia, Kadek, Putu, Wayan and the older security guard made our first time in Bali a wonderful experience.

About: I am an Australian professional living in Australia.
Bali is most beautiful island in the world. And the West Coast is the premium area. This villa is in the rice paddy fields with cool breezes and just minutes by taxi from Seminyak's restaurants or in the other direction Canggu's beach and surf.
The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
You won't have to reserve your spot by the pool here! Any time you want a swim you can - 24 hours a day! And there is little of no traffic noise. Just the noise of the frogs and birds. And yet so close to the prime action and restaurant scene of Seminyak or the surfing beaches near Canggu.
