The Neighborhood
We are in a charming quiet village called Kuwum. We are next to Banjar Semer, Umalas and close to Canggu & Pettitenget, ( the current ' hot spots' of Bali) - Seminyak is 12 minutes away. The closest beach is less than ten minutes away - great for an early morning walk or sunset stroll. All these areas can be accessed by scooter & push bike fast on small private roads for those who prefer to avoid traffic and major roads. You can hear the ocean at night from the villa. The locals are lovely kind and helpful and more than happy to show you short cuts to where you are going to. Great cafes, yoga studios, and the Canggu sports club are just five minutes away.

If you wish to explore the island and why wouldn't you? There is so much to do and see. We are very well located. We are out of the traffic gridlock of Kuta so journey times to Ubud West and East coasts and the center of the island is considerably less. This is why our location is so desired by the ex-pat scene.

Airport collection & drop offs are included int he rate.
We are happy to arrange car and bikes for you. A personal driver can also be arranged for your day trips. We have two bicycles at the house to enjoy rides to the beach or around the village. There is a taxi rank close by and they get to the house in less than 5 minutes.

                                      Why the Owner Chose Tabanan:
                                      Unique well loved property in an amazing location. Fantastic staff who have worked at the property for over 20 years. They are like our second family and will take great care of you. Ketut is one of the best cooks on the island.

                                      The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
                                      Villa Bella is in an amazing location - you still feel that you are experiencing old school Bali in a traditional village but you are very close to the hot spots of Pettitenget and Canggu.
