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.
Bayu Gita presents nine luxurious bedrooms across two self-contained villas in the tranquil coastal village of Ketewel on Bali’s south-east coast. In total, the complex can sleep up to 18 adults, and is exceptionally well equipped, boasting two swimming pools, various jacuzzis and plunge pools, a home cinema with over 500 movies, a high-tech gym, a games room, and multiple living and dining areas. The two villas are located 100 metres apart in their own private gardens, and when booked together suit groups of friends or families travelling with older relatives or independent teens.
Bayu Gita Beachfront is the larger of the two villas, home to six bedrooms and the bulk of the facilities. As its name suggests, the villa is set right beside the cerulean sea at Pabean Beach, a world-renowned surfing spot. From the infinity swimming pool, views unfold across the Badung Straits to Nusa Lembongan. The three-bedroomed Bayu Gita Residence sits slightly back from the beach.
Bayu Gita’s contemporary design has been conceived for modern-day tropical living. Glass doors ensure space flows seamlessly from inside to outside areas, and the villa’s gorgeous gardens are equipped with balés for outdoor living and paved areas for dining under the stars. At Bayu Gita you’ll want for nothing thanks to the five-star service of a professional team of highly trained staff including villa manager, butlers and your own private chef.
The villa is located in a quaint seaside village where fisherman head out in traditional boats to net their daily catch and kids run along the beachfront. Having such stunning ocean vistas also makes the villa a spectacular location for weddings and events. For those wishing to explore, the art and culture of Ubud and the charming, laid-back beachside cafés and restaurants of Sanur are both within an easy drive.

Rates and availability
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 cafés, restaurants, beachside bars, calm swimming waters and a boardwalk where you can enjoy a leisurely stroll or a bicycle ride. Also within easy reach of Bayu Gita are several villages renowned for their locally produced arts and crafts, silverware and woodwork as well as the Bali Safari & Marine Park and Bali Bird Park. Bali's cultural hub, Ubud, is a mere thirty-minute drive away.More 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.
