Bali is one of the most beautiful resort destinations in the world, with world-class resorts and breathtaking sunsets. The Balinese are also one of the most hospitable people around. It is little wonder Bali is such a popular holiday spot and honeymoon choice.
There will always be lovely villas and resorts to stay at when in Bali. But we came up with a bucket list of luxurious villas – what we’d like to think of as #vacationgoals – and they will most definitely blow you away. Unbeatable views, private pools, decors and interiors that boast unrivalled splendours; some of the many reasons why we dream of having a holiday in these luxurious villas in Bali.
When you are feeling indulgent, here’s a round-up of 14 Luxurious Villas in Bali That You Must Visit At Least Once In Your Life - to unwind and relax, because you deserve it!
A recent trip back to Bali saw us luxuriating at Conrad Bali, and we couldn’t be more thankful for the stay. Sure, there is no lack of luxurious resorts at The Island of Gods, and we have been to several beautiful ones. But Conrad Bali is one at Nusa Dua that left great impressions on us, and it was hard to say goodbye.
Sitting along the coast of Nusa Dua, Conrad Bali has a series of rooms and suites that cater to various preferences. Soak up in the gigantic pool that is surrounded by lush palm trees, or suntan on the sandy beach – just at the foot of the property – that spans across 350 metres.
If you have been following our Instagram account, you would have seen (and possibly be blown away) by our live feed during our week-long stay at The Mulia, Mulia Resorts and Villas last month. It was a good week of Heaven on Earth.
Bali is a familiar ground that we visit several times a year, and we have stayed at so many resorts and villas before, but nothing takes the cake like The Mulia does. “Sometimes, you have to believe before you can see,” a constant thought on our minds as we explored the large compound. Every area had something to impress, every landscape touched us like a fairytale.
It is nothing quite like what you would expect from Bali – it redefines stunning on a whole new level, much more than what you would think of from the Island of Gods. The sheer space, the grandeur of the Greek architecture, every single fine detail, the unrivalled luxury and unparalleled beauty; all these are but mere words until you set foot on this paradise – to believe, and to see for yourself what The Mulia Bali has to offer. Sitting at the coastline of Nusa Dua, the property boasts a beach front view, and life is awesome just lounging at the cabanas, sipping cocktails with our favourite books, and daydreaming while staring at the boundless skies and vast horizons.
Comprising three connecting grounds, the property is made up of The Mulia – an oasis of serenity, with luxurious suites and a classy tea room; Mulia Resorts – the main wing of rooms and its fleet of restaurants and deli; and Villas – various villas (up to 6 bedrooms) that are well-nestled in an abundance of greenery and coveted peace. And we lost count of the number of pools there are within the property because there will always be one for us to dive in no matter which part we were at!
We could stay there forever and be lost in paradise, and here are 12 reasons why you must stay at The Mulia, Mulia Resorts and Villas in Bali.
Fancy restaurants, cool beach clubs, and chic lifestyle boutiques – that makes up Seminyak, perhaps one of the most popular destinations in Bali. But if you like partying or surfing, backpackers’ heaven in Kuta is the place for you. For those who are on a journey to seek solace and to hideaway in peace and calmness, the luxury 5-star beach resorts in Nusa Dua will be your cup of tea.
Couples on honeymoon should check out romantic villas in Jimbaran – a sleepy seaside village known for the freshest seafood and gorgeous sunsets. Ubud, the heart and soul of the real Bali, remains a popular spot for visitors who are seeking spiritual enlightenment and cultural realisations.
Here is our Bali’s destination travel guide where we cover the five different areas on the island of Gods.
Kayumanis Private Villa & Spa is one name that we’ve been hearing for quite some time now, and when leading luxury hotel bookings portal The Luxe Nomad offered us the chance to experience the hospitality, we hopped on to a flight and checked in to the Jimbaran property. The drive in to the villa was a colourful one – where we were greeted by a local linear of provision shops, warungs (small Indonesian eateries) and a scatter of fashion boutiques – before we turned in to the private land.
The serenity was then all ours.
Bali is an ideal island for holidays of all sorts – partying at the most happening beach clubs and bars, dining at some of the top tables in Bali, enjoying a whole range of water sports like jet-skiing, diving or parasailing, or simply to have a nice and quiet spot to escape from the world.
If you are looking for a getaway in Bali to recharge yourself, the luxurious and spacious oceanfront villas at Four Seasons Resort in Jimbaran Bay is the top choice. Tucked at the end of Jimbaran Bay, it is one of Bali’s most exclusive hideaway resorts. Blessed with a spectacular view of the ocean, it s the kind of resort that would stop you in your tracks and take your breath away. Believe me when I say that it feels like a heaven. The word that describes the resort for me – apart from gorgeous and beautiful – is idyllic.

Bali is Indonesia’s favourite poster boy for tourism; it is the most popular tourist spot in the country and it is understandable why visitors flock there every so often for the beaches, clubbing, and cultural sights. And now, it is safe to say that Bali is also one of Asia’s most vibrant dining destinations where you can get not just good local Indonesian food, but also fine dining restaurants that are of international standards.
Besides staying at chic and swanky resorts, we also checked out many amazing dining concepts which include restaurants like Mama San, Petitenget and Merah Putih at Jalan Petitenget. Perennial favourites such as Ku De Ta and Potato Head remain at the forefront of the local F&B scene. There are so many good restaurants and bars that it is impossible to visit all of them.
Here is our Bali Food Guide of 34 of the best restaurants, eateries, cafes & bars that you have to visit on the Island of Gods.
It has often been said that one must stay at W Retreat & Spa when in Bali. We had the immense pleasure of staying there during our recent trip and we wholeheartedly agree. W Bali has that “X-factor” that cannot be replicated and this is why everyone goes to W Hotel when they are in Seminyak.
When I choose a hotel, one of the critical factors is the presence of good F&B establishments. At W Retreat & Spa, the restaurants and bars in the property are effortlessly chic and complete the true W experience.
