Apartment | 5 bedrooms | sleeps 10
Party people rejoice! Villa Kalyani is definitely a leading contender for the crown of ‘Best Party Villa in Bali’. Built on a generous piece of land that could easily have housed two separate dwellings, the owners have created something large and beautiful to cater for the in-crowd. Five bedrooms, while not all equal in size, do give everyone their own place to mellow out. There are twelve – count them – different chill zones including two bars and five lounges (one with pool table), and two outdoor double-sun lounger decks. It’s lucky Villa Kalyani is so open, otherwise you’d never find your friends!
Attention to detail shows the owners’ dedication to perfection. Villa Kalyani has all the amenities of a five-star hotel right down to the customised bathroom products. The furnishings and linens are of the highest quality, the lawns are trimmed, the garden lighting is extraordinary, the paintings showcase Indonesian artists, funky chandeliers are innovatively crafted from recycled bottles and zips, and even the felt on the pool table colour matches the décor.
The villa is definitely wired for sound, with a specially built DJ booth just to show how serious this place is about providing good times. There are speakers everywhere apart from the bedrooms: the gazebos, the bars, the lounges – even the 'rocks' next to the sun loungers by the pool have woofers hidden inside them! And a mammoth outdoor video screen provides party visuals and after dark Nintendo Wii sessions. But Kalyani isn’t just about hi-tech homage, life’s more simple pleasures are recognised too: there’s nothing quite like a barefoot amble on the grass and the sparkling 22m pool is surrounded on three sides by the lovely stuff.
A team of ten discreet staff, including a manager, four butlers and a driver (with car!) will tend to your every need. The suggestion menu at Kalyani reads like something from the Michelin Guide and can be tailored to meet guests’ preferences by the villa’s kitchen team, which includes a cook and a chef (the chef used to work at Kafé Warisan – one of Bali’s gastronomic legends). Grocery costs, plus a 30% service charge are on guest account, or meals can be selected from a priced menu.
Kalyani is perfect for kicking back and hanging loose and, although it does work well as a family villa, it really comes into its own as the ultimate holiday venue for hip young things (of all ages!).

The Bali/Lesser Sunda Islands region
Bali is Indonesia's most popular tourist location and is considered one of Asia's premier tropical island destinations. Steeped in history and renowned for its artistic way of life, Bali is a peaceful contrast to some of the more frantic destinations Asia has to offer.
The inner peace and creative talents of the Balinese has attracted artists the world over fascinated by local dancers, silversmiths, wood carvers, potters and painters that seem to pervade throughout the island. The abundant verdant fields and surrounding sea have long supplied Bali with an easy surplus of food leaving time for life's more artistic past times. As a result everything in Bali has a creative and religious element centred around the local Banjar (residents association) – little, adorned temples are everywhere, doors are covered in intricate carvings, huge kites ward off evil spirits and colourful roadside ceremonies bring traffic to a standstill.
Bali is a popular destination principally from Australia and Asia but also from all over Europe. The island welcomes thousands of visitors each year to a relaxing lifestyle, stunning beaches, world class surf, vibrant villages, and spectacular scenery all with an exquisite tropical climate. Located approximately two hours' flying time from Singapore the island is serviced by an international airport at Denpasar with direct flights to and from many major cities in Asia, Europe and Australia and many more via Jakarta, Indonesia's capital.
The island offers an impressive range of leisure and lifestyle amenities including world-class golf courses, wonderful seascapes for surfing, diving and snorkelling as well as luxurious spas, chic boutiques, tropical forests, towering volcanoes and international cuisine.
Canggu is actually a small fishing village, but has become the collective name for a number of villages (including Berawa, Tegal Gundul, Tiyingtukul, Pererenan, Nelayan, Babakan ) which, despite lying within a developing area, can still be described as a sleepy coastal locale.
Here, amongst the rice fields which extend all the way down to the beach, you will find some of the most luxurious private residences on Bali. It is also an area that most surfers will know about, with reef swells that are larger than those you will find in Kuta further south. Swimming isn't advisable however as the rips can be dangerous. Nearby sporting facilities include the Canggu Club (of which many holiday villas in the area include guest membership), offering social and leisure amenities, including a state-of-the art gym, a 25m swimming pool and a tennis and squash centre.
Along the coast to the north of Canggu is the Nirwana Bali Golf Club which was designed by Greg Norman and is frequently voted the number one golf course in Asia. Next to this is Pura Tanah Lot; a sea temple perched high on a craggy wave-lashed rock and probably the most photographed sight in Bali. Sophisticated Seminyak, a few kilometres south of Canggu, lays claim to the highest concentration of independent fine-dining restaurants on the island, including Sarong, La Lucciola and Ku Dé Ta, together with a wide choice of chic cocktail bars, exciting nightclubs, lavish spas and elegant boutiques.
