Life at The Villa


Villa Nilaya Bali Beach is a glorious haven of peace and quiet away from the maddening crowds of ‘tourist Bali’. Many of our guests love the Villa because it combines all of the conveniences of contemporary living with the charm of traditional Balinese life which they fondly remember from many years ago.

The Villa is approached on a little road from a secluded, tropical forest … bird life abounds, but as you enter the very private grounds of Villa Nilaya Bali Beach it’s the sound of the sea which will accompany you throughout your stay here.

Villa Nilaya Bali Beach was designed with total pleasure in mind … pleasure and relaxation.

The villa has four full-timeEnglish-speaking Balinese staff, with the two ladies – Tini and Ketut – being professionally- trained masseueses and chefs. They will look after you from the moment you arrive … so why wouldn’t you want to indulge in a daily spa with our beautiful organic products ? – our bathrooms are all partly open to the warm breezes of private gardens … nature surrounds you, and even when the tropical rains pour down, there is nothing more luxurious than reclining in your sunken bath watching the rain drops roll down a giant palm frond!

If you enjoy yoga, or always wanted to try, the timbered yoga deck upstairs with sweeping views from moutain to sea has room for 18 yoga mats (and we have enough yoga gear for a group of 18), and we can even arrange an expert -but very gentle- yoga instructor to come and give you some private tuition.

There are so many lovely places in the villa to relax, read, snooze, contemplate and meditate – including an exotic double swing bed from Rajasthan in India. But you’ll probably find that you’ll spend lots of time on the seadeck, cantilevered over the shoreline, with a thatched gazebo and two big daybeds to relax on – or even have a massage there!

Watch the sun rise of over Lombok Island and catch the sunset from here as you wind down with a drink after a lovely day.

With little fishing restaurants to discover you’ll be tempted to walk down the track for fresh seafood, but don’t move if you don’t want to!

Our staff will prepare you fresh and delicious dishes, some with a hint of Balinese spice, but always using the freshest ingredients – many herbs and vegetables being grown organically in our kitchen garden.

If you yearn to go farther afield, East Bali is full of surprises. You can head for the hills and visit the cultural centre of Ubud, visiting some of the most picturesque rice fields on the island along the way (the ones which appear on the postcards!), or you can head along the magical Seriya Coast Road, where cliff-top views onto palm-fringed, sandy white beaches beckon you closer.

Hundreds of colourful fishing boats line the coves and bays, many offering their services for a small charge to take you out for a bracing trip, from where you’ll enjoy the best views across to the volcanic peaks of Mt Agung and Batur.

Dive wreck snorkeling and diving are available within easy swimming distance from the shore at Tulamben and Amed. If you’re a little unsure, or a first-timer, you could hire the services of a dive or snorkeling buddy, for just a few dollars to keep you company and point you in the right direction and our driver will be able to make this an easy day-trip for you.

For more adventurous divers, the islands in front of Villa Nilaya – Nusa Penida and Nusa Lembongan – offer fantastic underwater adventures, and you can take a local outrigger across there for the day from the front of the villa.

Don’t want to go that far ? Pick up the boat anyway and take a joyride along the coastline towards Candi Dasa… it’s a lovely way to spend the afternoon.

If cultural activities attract you, then don’t miss the water palace gardens of Tirtagangga and Ujung, 30-45 minutes fom the villa. Formerly belonging to the kings of this region, they are botanical splendours, and we can arrange a special meal for you here if you wanted to do something really romantic!

And speaking of Romance .. why not consider Villa Nilaya Bali as the venue for your wedding, if not your honeymoon or your next romantic get-away ?we have special indulgence packages just for you

Perhaps what Villa Nilaya Bali Beach does best of all is provide you with the beautiful surroundings to just be still, to experience Nature at close hand, to enjoy the interactions with the village people, who once greeted are very happy to walk on, leaving you to enjoy their island in peace.

We hope you’ll come and enjoy our hospitality soon.

Amazing, stunning, wonderful, fantastic, words do not do justice to my 6 day stay at Villa Nilaya.
As I first walked through the front entrance I was prepared for something special but was amazed at the beauty of the Villa, it exceeded my expectations.
The open design, expansive rooms, clean lines, the beautiful works of art and ornaments, this is Bali at its best.
