Moments from Petitenget Beach, set within Seminyak’s elite Laksmana Estate, lies the fully staffed Des Indes Villas III. This three-bedroom luxury villa offers guests a contemporary take on old Bali-style open-concept living and Asian heritage chic. The social heart of the villa is the huge open-sided teakwood-lined living pavilion – facing the pool and surrounded on three sides by koi ponds dotted with islands of heliconia. The three vaulted pavilion bedrooms – two opening onto the pool deck, one on the second level with private rooftop terrace – are rich with four-poster beds, colonial-style furniture, oriental rugs, and Chinese and Indonesian artefacts. Counterpointing the traditional influence are more contemporary luxuries – top-range King Koil mattresses, crisp cotton bed-linen, curved 47-Inch TVs with satellite channels in the bedrooms, and branded toiletries in the air-conditioned Italian marble bathrooms.
Swim a few lengths in the 16-metre pool then soak up some sun on one of the upholstered poolside loungers or seek shade in the deeply cushioned bale. Curl up on a comfy sofa or planters chair in the living pavilion with a good book from the villa’s eclectic collection. Wander across to Potato Head for sunset cocktails while your chef whips up a gourmet meal from the reasonably priced menu. Finally sink into a petal-strewn bath and retire to the comfort of your romantic four-poster bed.
With the beach, boutiques, restaurants, bars and spas of Seminyak just moments away, a family or group of friends will find Des Indes Villa III the perfect choice for their Bali vacation. For larger groups (up to 10 adults and four extra children), the villa can be rented in conjunction with the adjacent four-bedroom Des Indes I and two-bedroom Des Indes Villa II; an inter-connecting wall of double doors and pivoting plantation shutters opens up to create one five-bedroom estate with two pools – perfect for extended families or large groups of friends.

Des Indes III sits securely within the Laksmana Estate, an exclusive enclave right in the heart of Seminyak. Bali’s most stellar beach area – the wide expanse of Petitenget Beach is a mere five-minute walk away. Many of the island’s most celebrated restaurants and bars are also very close by, including Ku De Ta, Metis, Sarong and Potato Head. No need to take a taxi to reach Seminyak’s many boutiques, lifestyle shops and spas either. What a perfect spot!
Things to doVilla Des Indes’ manager has a wealth of information about nearby places of interest and will help arrange transport and make any bookings required. Chat to the staff too; many have been attached to the villa for some time and are a great source of insider information. In the meantime, here’s a taste of the many and varied activities on offer within reach of the villa.
- Fashionistas, trendies and shop-a-holics should hot-foot it down to Seminyak, Bali’s most cosmopolitan enclave. Here, you can indulge for hours in the glut of stylish, chic boutiques. There is a wide choice of fine dining, mid range, and cheap ‘n cheerful restaurants in Seminyak too: fine dining venues include Sarong, the famous Ku Dé Ta, Mama San, La Lucciola, Petitenget, Merah Putih, Sardine and Métis.
- It’s possible to walk the sands of Seminyak’s Petitenget Beach all the way to Kuta in the south, or north to Canggu. The beach is more popular with locals than tourists (not safe for swimming in most sections), but is a great spot for building sandcastles or to watch the sunset as you sip a cocktail from one of the many beachside bars.
- A nice sunset alternative is to head down to Echo Beach (11km) where a number of cafes offer good sunset views and cold beer. Note that the beach here is dark sand and the waters are better suited to surfing, having a pronounced swell and rip, rather than children’s swimming. Hotel Tugu, a very stylish and eclectic boutique hotel a few minutes further down the coast is also a good sunset spot, or try the more casual café across the road; Old Man’s for alfresco all day dining
- Villa Shinta Dewi is close to the famous temple at Tanah Lot (16 km), although in peak season a few too many tourists may transform a sunset visit into more of a heaving photo opportunity than a moving experience. Visiting early in the morning (8-9am) provides a better idea of the power of the location and the chance to see it undisturbed apart from perhaps an offering ceremony.
- Play a round at the unbelievably scenic Nirwana Bali Golf Course. Bordered by ocean and rice fields and just down from Tanah Lot sea temple, no wonder this championship-standard course (designed by golf legend, Greg Norman) is frequently voted number one in Asia.
- Drive westwards to explore the charming Tabanan regency, revealing terraced rice fields of emerald green, volcanic mountains and black-sand beaches dotted with fishing communities. Or head north to explore the volcanic lakes near the mountain town of Bedugul, including Lake Bratan with its photogenic and stunningly positioned Pura Ulun Danu – one of Bali’s most important temples.
- Covering 3.8 hectares of tropical parkland in Kuta, Waterbom Bali has 16 water slides (including The Climax with its 360 degree loop) to entertain the young and the young at heart. A great family day out, but go early to beat the crowds.
- Bali Treetop Adventure Park is near the town of Bedugal in northern central Bali (next to Lake Bratan). Five adventure circuits, with heights ranging from two to 20 metres, challenge all level and ages on suspended bridges, spider nets, Tarzan jumps and 12 flying foxes.
