Villa Dukuh sits on a cliff top with a stunning river valley view on one acre of land in Dukuh, Bali, not far from Tanah Lot temple.
Designed to maximize space, comfort and relaxation, the villa is nestled in a quiet and traditional village. Every room is large and bright, enjoying open views as well as high exposed ceilings.
Three bedrooms boast king-sized beds and natural stone and wood details, including antique Javanese teak-paneled walls. Each has a large ensuite bathroom with oversized terrazzo bathtub and open shower with garden view. For added luxury, bathtubs and showers are trimmed with Borneo hardwood. A fourth bedroom with queen-sized bed is available for larger groups.
The 15-meter x 5-meter infinity swimming pool, finished entirely in natural stone, is designed for both serious lap swimmers and loungers.
But what really sets Villa Dukuh apart is our private tennis court, built in the shadow of the 30-meter cliff and perched above the river. For both enthusiasts and casual players, we guarantee you a playing experience that you will not forget! After your game--or for those intending a less aerobic holiday--enjoy a cold drink in our court-side Balinese "Bale" (thatched teak gazebo).
Throughout the villa you will find exquisite furnishings made from the highest quality local products wherever possible, including aged teak, rattan, and leather. The villa also has a small selection of original artwork from Bali and the region.
For entertainment, enjoy the open billiard room with nine-foot mahogany table. Or curl up in front of our 32-inch flat-screen television and choose from a wide selection of DVDs. The villa has other games, which you are welcome to use, as well an extensive library. Our compact stereo has an I-Phone / I-Pod dock and is USB and MP3 compatible.
During your stay, you will be taken care of by our six full-time staff. You will enjoy a comprehensive complimentary breakfast menu each morning, in-house laundry service and twice-daily housekeeping. Additional a la carte meals can be ordered throughout the day. Unlike many other villas in Bali, our kitchen is open. Guests are welcome to cook or learn from our Balinese chef.
Villa Dukuh has been built with our own family’s enjoyment in mind. We very much look forward to welcoming you to our home – and welcoming you back!

About this location
The Bali region
Bali remains one of the world's premier vacation destinations. The island boasts broad white beaches, sea sports, active volcanoes and volcanic lakes, mountain hiking and an economy geared to service excellence. In addition to the beautiful natural sites, Bali boasts a vibrant night life and excellent range of restaurants for all budgets. Ask whether your holiday coincides with one of Bali's famous holiday festivals, such as Nyepi, Galungan and Kuningan (each brings colourful attractions).
Bali has only two seasons: dry and wet. The dry season runs roughly from May-October, and the rainy season from November-April. However, there is plenty of sunshine during the rainy season, and the occasional short shower during dry season.
Villa Dukuh is in a perfect location to experience Bali. We are nestled in a quiet, traditional village in the southern end of Tabanan--but only 15 minutes from Tanah Lot Beach (and its famous temple) and Canggu/Echo Beach, as well as within a 30-minute drive of the shopping and night life attractions of Seminyak. Villa Dukuh is only 15 minutes from the famous Pan Pacific Nirvana Golf Resort and within an hour of Bedugul and Ubud.

"Total relaxation and no expense spared on this villa"
This was my second stay at Villa Dukuh and it won't be my last. Villa Dukuh is situated in a local village away from the hussle and bussle of Kuta/Legian and Seminyak. If you are wanting total relaxation in a very classy villa - you need to stay here. The rooms are very well appointed and spotlessly clean. Bathrooms are magnificent. The spotless pool and new tennis courts are a great addition. There is also a billard table and TV connected to multiple channels along with an extensive DVD library. Books too!
The Manager and staff are only to happy to attend to all your needs without any problems. They are very discreet but there if you need them. Lovely people. Breakfast is great along with all the meals on the menu.
It's the little things like drinks and towels being bought down to us while we played tennis are great touches that this villa offer.
Very quiet location set amongst almost jungle like area makes Villa Dukuh so relaxing. It's also nice just to walk outside and speak to the locals in the village - they are lovely.
Having a driver available is a plus as the villa is away from everything but knowing you can hop in a car at anytime is nice. But once you are there - you really don't want to go anywhere!

"Beautiful, authentic Bali getaway, situation away from the hustle and bustle"
We recently stayed at Villa Dukuh (5 adults and 2 children (2 years and 11mths)) for a week and were truely impressed with the Villa, the staff and the beauty of Bali. The Villa was perfect for our needs and the staff were always happy to cater to our requests - nothing was ever too much.
I would highly recommend this Villa to groups of people or large families wanting to experience a relaxing holiday. We took advantage of many of the facilities at the Villa, including the huge pool, tennis court, massage and beauty services. We also had a wonderful driver, provided by the Villa who took us all over the Island. Although the Villa is situated only 30 mins away from Seminyak, the roads and traffic can make the drive an hour plus at times. This was not always ideal with young children, so it pays to discuss this with the Villa Manager and driver before hand as they would often suggest leaving earlier for an outing or taking short cuts where possible. The staff were all so kind and generous with time, often taking/ playing with the younger children while we ate our meals. They were just wonderful, and they cook some wonderful dishes - I think we tried most things on the menu and were very impressed. Also the banana pancakes on offer at breakfast are not to be missed!! The rooms were beautiful, the beds were large and comfortable and the twice daily service to our rooms was a treat. The bathrooms were traditional in style, but with a luxurious touch. They even will wash your clothes on a daily basis - perfect for when travelling with children.
