Laksmana Estate, Seminyak, Bali, Indonesia

Four couples or groups of friends seeking a sociable villa in a stand-out Seminyak location will be happy to hang their hats at Villa Shinta Dewi.

Named after the beautiful king’s daughter at the centre of the Hindu epic, The Ramayana, this serene, four-bedroom villa is peacefully set in the secure upmarket Laksmana estate a few hundred meters from the beach, and an easy walk from some of Bali’s most iconic restaurants, sunset bars and boutiques.

Its space-enhancing layout – three pavilions positioned around a waterfall-fed swimming pool – provides a surprising amount of living space, including an open-sided upper living room with sunset terrace, poolside dining room below, second living room and an air-conditioned study.

While the master bedroom is magnificent, taking up much of the second pool-edge pavilion, those staying in the three guest bedrooms won’t feel they’ve drawn the short straw

The interiors are opulently furnished and feature Jim Thompson silks and rice-paper screens as well as glamorous marble-lined bathrooms.

This is a thoroughly grown-up fully-staffed villa, where you can relax by the pool, retire to the shade of the dining room for a leisurely lunch (prepared by the villa’s excellent chef – with a fixed price menu to make the choice easier), work out in the gym, enjoy sunset cocktails on the terrace, pop across the road to La Lucciola for dinner – and, with 24-hour butler service, still be pampered when you return to the villa in the early hours.

Bali, Indonesia
A trip to Bali can be filled with culture, nature, art, the spiritual or, even better, all of these. Apart from the wealth of Bali attractions, from the spectacular beaches of Kuta, Nusa Dua and Seminyak, or Ubud’s cultural heart and picturesque terraced rice fields, the northeastern coastal towns and Lombok Island are hidden gems awaiting discovery.
Bali is an Indonesian island known for its forested volcanic mountains, iconic rice paddies, beaches and coral reefs. The island is home to religious sites such as cliffside Uluwatu Temple. To the south, the beachside city of Kuta has lively bars, while Seminyak, Sanur and Nusa Dua are popular resort towns. The island is also known for its yoga and meditation retreats.
