It’s been a week since we have left Bella after a 6 night stay with our 2 children (3 and 6 yrs) and already we are missing the beauty, serenity and people that make this such a special place. Bella is a wonderful villa and this was our second visit and I’m sure not our last. Jane makes the booking process very simple and assists with pool fence hire and groceries/meals for arrival and Ketut and Nyoman are the most wonderful hosts showing such warmth, kindness, thoughtfulness and beautiful smiles not to mention Ketut’s amazing cooking skills! Our children adore the villa and love spending time with Ketut cooking her amazing cakes, watching movies and doing craft. We love the serenity and the real Bali feel that allows us to escape the hussle and bustle of Seminyak and Canggu when we manage to leave the villa. It’s convieniently located between Seminyak and Canggu and we find using scooters the best option for transport but Nyoman is also always happy to drive for a reasonable fee. We are so glad we found this piece of bohemian Balinese paradise and look forward to our return.
It is a stunning Villa very close to Seminyak and Canggu.
Hopefully I will return soon, as I would love to stay more days here to really enjoy this peaceful Villa.
Everything was absolutely perfect.
We stayed at Villa Bella for the first two weeks of our honeymoon with our two children (4 and 5 years old), having never previously been to Bali. So we had no idea what to expect - neither from the country, nor from the villa itself - we had simply fallen in love with the stunning images on the website.
Villa Bella is a truly amazing place. Tucked away down a quiet side street, away from the hustle and bustle of Seminyak and Canggu (but equidistant between them and 15 minutes in the car to either), a beautiful carved wooden door opens onto your private paradise. Villa Bella is big and has a great layout with three big bedrooms and big bathrooms spread out at opposite ends - ideal for families who enjoy their privacy. The house has been built and styled by someone who obviously knows a lot about making places look beautiful - so many beautiful pieces of furniture and decoration and so much attention to detail, it felt like a much-loved home. The bathrooms, in particular, are just stunning. We could have showered all day!
You need to bring next to nothing to Villa Bella - all the bedrooms have fantastically comfortable four-poster beds with beautiful roomy mosquito nets and gorgeous bed linen (which I coveted and should have bought!) Mosquito repellent, fans and AC in every bedroom mean that peaceful nights are a given. The neighbours are quiet - we only heard loud music playing once in the two weeks we were there.
However the best thing about Villa Bella is the staff. Ketut and Nyoman are a super experienced and very friendly husband and wife team, who head a staff who look after the property, keeping it immaculate at all times, and are also on hand to cook for you and drive you wherever you need to go. Ketut was happy to babysit whenever we wanted to go somewhere that was less child-friendly and our girls adored her - and still talk about her. She cooked us some of the best meals we had on Bali and it was wonderful being able to stay home of an evening, have a relaxed dinner outside and a swim after. Nyoman was unrelentingly happy to drive us around and we will miss his smiles and easy-going nature. The villa staff are brilliant at looking after you so you never need to lift a finger, but also at disappearing into the background, so you still feel private. This is quite a skill!
We'd like to say a big thank you for letting us stay in your beautiful home! We would definitely recommend it to anyone - especially families with young children. And we wish we had our own Ketut and Nyoman - they will be sorely missed. THANK YOU!
Villa Bella was one of the most beautiful places I've had the pleasure in staying in. The rooms were spacious and comfortable and the house itself was perfectly decorated. My favourite part of the house was the pool, which you have all to yourself. The hammocks were also a great addition. The breakfast was great and the employees were incredibly friendly and helpful.
I've told so many people about this place, and hope I can stay again!
What a beautiful Villa!! My (now) husband and I got married in this gorgeous paradise. Neither of us had ever been to Bali, so picking somewhere to marry became a daunting task. When we stumbled onto Villa Bella it just stood out from all the rest. We only had a small group so we need something really private but also something special. We read all the reviews and so many other guests shared such a strong affection for Villa Bella - now I know why!
All the rooms are stunning with their elegant boho chic style, large beds and private balconies. Each bedroom has its own bathroom - which made picking a room tricky because I wanted to use all 3!
I didn't feel guilty lounging around because it's so tranquil and peaceful it was silly not to stop and drink it all in. The villa has a stunning garden that wraps the property around and gives you a beautiful view over the rice fields behind it.
Swimming every day in the pool became a must! After shopping and sight seeing all day, the first thing I wanted to do was go straight to the pool.
All the staff that work here are amazingly kind. They are extremely hospitable and made sure we were comfortable. We had a 5 month old baby with us and the property manager, Katut, was amazing with her.
Villa Bella is only a short trip away from town so we were able to do lots of shopping, eat out at numerous restaurants without feeling like we were far from everything.
I think that if you want a place that has room to move around, beautiful style and peaceful surroundings, Villa Bella is more than that perfect for you.
I can't wait to go back!!
This is our second time at Villa Bella, and this place definitely has something very special. Home feeling, a beautiful setting decorated with lots of beautiful local furniture. The house has been designed with a perfect combination of practical and beautiful, in a romantic and relaxing atmosphere. The owner definitely has a good eye to choose charming vintage objects and pieces of furniture... Bedrooms are beautiful and very personalized, bathrooms are stunning! You feel you are in a mythical home in antique times. The garden is full of beautiful trees and flowers and faces ricefields. We spent hours in the pool with the children. I should say this place is unique to me, it has a soul. And most important, the nicest people who will make your stay perfect! The staff is amazing, always relaxed and smiling. Ketut cooks wonderful meals, and together with her husband Nyoman, they helped us organize our trips around Bali: discovering the island, going to a fabulous yoga class nearby, driving us to the best organic food markets and restaurants, taking us shopping around Seminyak... This is a real Bali experience, very inspiring in all ways and I could describe it for hours, but my best advice is... come to Villa Bella, you won't regret it!
What an amazing villa, from the staff to the beautiful bohemian styled decor. Nothing was a problem. The beautiful Balinese family that helps look after the villa was wonderful. If you really want a relaxed, stress free escape with the bali experience this is the perfect villa to stay at. Jane you have a winner villa here. Ill be back with my family next time.
