Villa 1880

The villa you chose is no longer available for rental from us but we have a portfolio of Elite Havens in various locations around South East Asia for you to choose from. Alternatively feel free to send us an enquiry and it'll be our pleasure to help you find the perfect villa for your next holiday.

Sleeps 8 Adults, 8 Children

Villa 1880 is extraordinary – a contemporary-meets-colonial beach-in-ten vacation home, a design aficionado’s dream, and heaven for a few families (up to 8 adults and 8 kids) intent on holidaying together effortlessly, in total comfort and with considerable style.  

The heart of Villa 1880 is a beautifully restored plantation house from Borneo, made entirely of ironwood and constructed in 1880 – hence the name. Full of heritage charm, the house sits between two contemporary structures: a vast open-sided living room with sunset barbecue terrace above, and a two-storey sleeping pavilion lined with lime green shutters in homage to its colonial cousin.

Staying here is a dream for creatives and all who appreciate a refined design aesthetic. The visionary Hong Kong-based owners, an interior architect and vintage furniture showroom founder, have uncompromisingly high standards and an obsessive attention to detail. Italian retro furniture, vintage collector’s pieces, designer fabrics, inventive lighting and contemporary art are all part of the eclectic mix. Everything is achingly chic and high spec with no expense spared on leading-edge facilities (including mood lighting and a water filtration system which means guests may drink water direct from the taps – a rare convenience in Bali villas).

Families will appreciate the fabulous indoor and alfresco living spaces and five bedroom suites – one of them an eight-bunk children’s suite. Add a 19m saltwater pool with shaded shallow kids’ section, private spa, two kitchens, and a remarkably gifted chef among the professional staff, and you have all the ingredients to whip up the most memorable holiday imaginable.

Villa 1880 is tucked away down a quiet lane a few minutes’ walk from uber-trendy Batu Belig Beach and a 10-minute drive from both Seminyak and Canggu. There’s a vintage ‘70s VW Combi available to whisk guests to Bali’s many temples and tourist attractions (extra charge applies). But such is Villa 1880’s allure, you may never want to leave.

Location

Villa 1880 is tucked away down a quiet lane in sought-after Batu Belig on the peaceful northern edge of Seminyak. An easy 10-minute stroll away is Batu Belig Beach; walking south along the black volcanic sand brings you to uber-trendy beach bars Tropicola, W Hotel and Potato Head, while northwards is La Laguna and Finns Beach Club.

The area’s many cafés and bars are moments away, among them Watercress and Hog Wild (previously Naughty Nuri’s), along with boutiques and lifestyle stores as eclectic as the villa itself. Central Seminyak and the surfing mecca of Canggu are both a mere 10-minute drive away.

More information for Things to do

Do feel free to ask our staff about the area around Batu Belig; the team has a wealth of information about nearby places of interest and will help you make any bookings, as well as give you an interesting insight into aspects of Bali life. They can also organise for you to be chauffeured in the villa’s beautifully refurbished 1970s VW combi van for a small extra cost.

Here’s a quick overview of some of the many and varied activities you could consider.

  • Villa 1880 is within walking distance of Seminyak’s most glamourous beach clubs including W hotel, Tropicola, and Potato Head – perfect for watching the sunset.
  • A nice sunset alternative is to walk along the beach at Batu Belig where there are plenty of cafés offering great views and cold beer.
  • There is a wide choice of fine dining, mid-range and cheap ‘n cheerful restaurants in Seminyak too. Fine dining venues within a five-minute drive include Sardine and Métis.
  • Desa Seni at Berawa Beach, is an eco-friendly village resort providing an authentic Indonesian experience through the exploration of culture, art and yoga. The resort offers a wide variety of yoga classes and also has its own spa.
  • Visit the mystical Hotel Tugu (Bali’s first museum-hotel) studded with priceless Indonesian artworks and antiques. The hotel's restaurants offer authentic Chinese and Indonesian fine dining, as well as an international menu, in a variety of unique settings. At the rustic Waroeng Tugu you can taste the traditional Javanese and Balinese cuisine of bygone centuries.
  • Bali attracts some of the world’s top DJ talent. Clubs like Jenja, En-Vie in Seminyak and SkyGarden in nearby Kuta will keep you entertained into the early hours
  • Fashionistas, trendies and shopaholics should hot-foot it down to Seminyak, one of the most cosmopolitan areas in Bali. Here, you can indulge for hours in stylish and chic boutiques.
  • Sports enthusiasts should head to Bali’s prestigious Finns Recreation Club, with its state-of-the-art gym and tennis and squash courts.
  • Visit Tanah Lot sea temple. This is one of the most sacred temples in Bali and also one of its most popular tourist attractions. We always advise visiting early in the morning (8-9am) when there are less people and you’ll have a much better chance to really experience the power of this location.
  • Explore the scenic rice-field landscape and rural villages by bicycle; a great way to get under the skin of the ‘real’ Bali. Stop off at a local warung (eatery) to sample some basic Balinese fare or cool off with a cold drink.

Dining

In-villa dining is one of the many highlights of a stay at Villa 1880. Guests are fortunate to have on hand a world-class chef who brings passion and creativity to the table as well as culinary expertise honed at Sardine, one of Bali’s most celebrated restaurants. He skillfully whips up hearty or healthy breakfasts, casual lunches, alfresco barbecues or gourmet dinners served family-style according to your tastes. Choose from an inspired menu that highlights Bali’s rich harvest from both land and sea, explores the Indonesian archipelago’s culinary diversity, and delivers a new take on western favourites with delicious meals and multi-dish set menus.

Sample the chef’s home-made preserves with fresh sourdough bread at breakfast. Linger over a poolside lunch of chicken, cashew and tarragon wraps, nasi goreng or risotto with crabmeat and asparagus. Nibble on captivating canapés over sunset cocktails, then enjoy a mouth-watering seafood barbecue on the rooftop terrace bathed in moonlight. The chef’s desserts are legendary; insist on a cheesecake or mango pannacotta during your stay.

Kids are well catered for, and there’s also an excellent selection of vegetarian and super-healthy options… and the chef is more than happy to tailor meals to accommodate any special dietary requirements. Conveniently, there’s also an excellent menu of wines readily available at supermarket prices with no mark up.

It is advisable to plan meals the evening before to allow adequate time for the chef to prepare. The staff will then undertake the grocery shopping, visiting the local markets and specialty food shops in Seminyak. Groceries and beverages are charged at cost price plus 20% and a handling fee, and staff will keep all receipts for reference. Guests are kindly requested to provide the manager with grocery money in advance.

Retro, cool but very functional. We had a delightful stay at Villa 1880. The big plus for us was the Seminyak location without all the noise of motorbikes and bustle of being in town. The street is amazingly quiet given the beach and a great selection of restaurants are within walking distance. Watercress is very good. The rooms are very generous with a touch of funky but the other shout out
