We’re certain that Bali is no stranger to most — throughout the years, it has been one of the most accessible and beautiful beach paradises to head to with a myriad of activities to immerse yourself in. It’s perfect for partygoers, surfers, or those who are looking for an idyllic getaway. The best part? It’s only a short plane ride away.
While hotels are a common accommodation to take, try villas when you’re in Bali. These are in abundance, making it the perfect place for group getaways. There’s nothing like having an entire villa to yourself with a private pool where you can lounge around and throw your unicorn floats into.
These luxury villas in Bali are not just posh, but also boast beautiful views and stunning interiors. Take for example, Hartland Estate in Ubud that channels rustic, teakwood architecture and interior. It takes away the traditional aspect of Balinese life and gives it contemporary spin.
As far as the best views get, The Ungasan Clifftop Resort boasts great ones — after all, the villas in the resort are situated atop a cliff. Literally listen to the waves or watch them from your infinity pool like we did during our stay there recently.

The Arnalaya Beach House boasts some serious minimalist vibes, not unlike those you would see off the glossy pages of an architectural design magazine from the Silicon Valley. With over five rooms for 18 guests and a stunning beachfront view, make sure to bring your best swimwear for photos.

With the all-white interior and exterior with a 20-metre private pool, your own personal butler, private chef, and more — this villa is the epitome of luxury that money can actually buy. Channelling Ibiza vibes (in Bali, nonetheless) whilst overlooking the Indian ocean from a cliff, the Grand Cliff-Front Residence is the makings of a perfect private party holiday.

This one is made for the travellers who are looking for tranquility in an idyllic setting. The Hartland Estate in Ubud was designed in a traditional Javanese style, featuring a saltwater infinity pool and yoga decks for those seeking inner peace. Five standalone suites are available to pick from at the Hartland Estate, but know for sure that each one provides you the peace and privacy you desire.

While some villas may be so luxe that they feel almost impersonal, the Villa Latitude Bali brings to mind the cosiness of a home — but with the luxe factor. It also happens to feature the largest private pool in Bali, so you and your guests in the six-bedroom suite villa will have plenty of space in the water. When you tire of your villa, head out to one of Latitude’s world-class golf courses or paraglide off the resort’s cliff.

Want to be away from it all? Then stay at The Ungasan Clifftop Resort, nestled in Ungasan and by the clifftop.

You’ll enjoy a personal butler, several five-star facilities, exclusive VIP access to Sundays Beach Club, and more.

When you don’t want to stay by the beach, try staying near the tranquil rice fields at The Asmara Nusa Dua. The Balinese ironwood villa is designed in the style of a traditional Balinese temple compound with separate, smaller pavilions. The two main pavilions house the private bedroom suites and spa.

Don’t waste time travelling — stay in Seminyak where all the action is. The star feature of Villa Tjitrap is that it was designed by an internationally-renowned architect: Ross Franklin. As a result, the villa has a 19th century Javanese plantation house aesthetic coupled with Singapore’s traditional black and white colonial homes. Despite being in Seminyak, the property maintains a sense of calm and tranquility as soon as you walk through the doors. There are six bedrooms with high ceilings and a lush garden for extra greenery.
