Located in the tranquil fishing village of Ketewel on Bali's south-east coast, where coconut groves meet the Indian Ocean and a traditional way of life prevails, Bayu Gita Residence provides the perfect holiday getaway. Less than 100 metres from the gleaming black sands of Pabean Beach, this stylish, contemporary villa has been designed with an eye for Balinese aesthetics, keen attention to detail, and supreme comfort in mind. Spread over two floors, the villa is encircled in fold-back glass doors that can be flung open to enjoy the fresh sea breeze. Luxurious soft furnishings include richly woven textiles, rustling drapes and silky mosquito nets, while tropical outdoor living comes with an 11-metre swimming pool, patio dining, and garden gazebo with jacuzzi.
The use of natural building materials, from darkly hued latticed timber to creamy sandstone, creates a discernable warmth which, combined with the villa's relaxed ambiance will make you feel at home from the moment you cross the threshold. With three bedrooms, including an upper-floor master suite with ocean views, Bayu Gita Residence is large enough to offer space and privacy for small groups and families, but is also intimate and secluded enough to be a romantic honeymoon hideaway. The friendly staff team includes an attentive butler, talented chef, a car and driver are also available at a special rate for exploring the seaside town of Sanur, the historic arts centre of Ubud, and action-packed Bali Marine Safari Park, are all in easy reach.
Providing a serene beach escape far from the crowds, Bayu Gita Residence can also be rented in conjunction with six-bedroomed, Bayu Gita Beach Front to accommodate a total of 18 people.

Rates and availability
Villa Bayu Gita faces the dramatic black sands of Pabean Beach in the bucolic east-coast village of Ketewel. The area is blessed with spectacular views extending across the ocean towards the beaches of Sanur and Nusa Dua, the islands of Lembongan, Ceningan and Penida, and the mountains of east Bali, and is well known by surfers, who come here to enjoy breaks which are far less crowded than those of Kuta or Uluwatu.
The charming and laid-back seaside town of Sanur is a short drive (10km from the villa. Here you will find cafes, restaurants, beachside bars, calmMore information for Things to do
Bayu Gita’s manager will have a wealth of information about nearby places of interest and will help arrange transport and make any bookings required. Do also ask the staff about the local area. Many of them live nearby and will be able to give an interesting insight into some of the fascinating aspects of Bali life.
In the meantime, here is a taste of the many and varied activities on offer within reach of the villas.
- The stretch of beach between Sanur and Ketewel is well known as a surfer’s heaven (especially in East Coast Season, which runs from November to May, when the winds turn offshore on this side of the island), but beginners should be aware of strong, swirling currents. Good breaks can be found in front of the Grand Bali and Sanur Beach Hotels.
- Saba Bay Horse Riding has a special horse-riding track (suitable for beginners) on a beautiful black sandy beach overlooking the Indian Ocean and Nusa Penida Island.
- There is a 9-hole golf course at the Bali Beach Hotel in Sanur, but golf enthusiasts might want to travel further afield to Bali Golf and Country Club in Nusa Dua for 18-hole courses.
- Ubud and the villages in the surrounding area contain dozens of examples of beautiful Hindu Temples. Most temples are free to visit or ask for a small donation. Proper attire is required, although many temples will loan or rent a sarong for your visit. Pura Penataran Asih in nearby Pejeng is a charming temple containing the largest bronze kettle drum in the world. Pura Besakih on the slopes of Mount Agung is Bali’s most sacred temple site. A complex of 23 temples can be explored on a day trip from Ubud.
- If you are a bold and brave bargain hunter, a shopping spree at one of the Denpasar’s markets within the heart of Bali’s bustling provincial capital, is an exciting and rewarding experience.
- The most exclusive Bali trekking tour promises breath-taking vistas and heart-warming encounters while supporting sustainable social change in the once-forgotten villages of Muntigunung. Elite Havens is a proud partner of Muntigunung Community Social Enterprise.
- Other family attractions to enjoy in the area include the Bali Safari & Marine Park, the Bali Bird and Reptile Park.
- An annual international kite festival takes place at Padang Galak beach (just north of Sanur) every July. Traditional Balinese giant kites up to ten metres in length are made and flown competitively by teams from different villages around Bali. Originally, these kites were intended to send a message to the Hindu Gods to create abundant crops and harvests.
- About 7km north of Ketewel is the village of Sukawati, famous for its cheap local arts and crafts market although better quality goods can be found in Ubud (art), Celuk (silverware) and Mas (woodwork) all within an easy drive of the villa.
- 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.

Bayu Gita’s chef and cook are at your service to prepare daily breakfast, lunch, snacks and dinner.
The villas offer an extensive suggestion menu of delicious home-style meals featuring Asian and international dishes to cater to all tastes, with an excellent selection of vegetarian and children’s options. The chef is also more than happy to tailor meals to accommodate any special dietary requirements and a stay is not complete without sampling his pepes ikan (fish steamed in banana leaf), satay ayam (chicken satay on bamboo skewers) or pisang goreng (fried banana) with ice cream.
Groceries and beverages are charged at cost price plus 20%++ handling fee. Guests will be requested to provide grocery money in advance, and the staff will do the shopping and keep the receipts for reference. To make the most of the kitchen and give staff time to shop, it is a good idea to plan meals the evening before.View a sample menu
