Set in the secure, private Temple Hill Estate, Villa Adenium blends stylish luxury with serene sea views, and easy access to the protected swimming beaches and famous restaurants of Jimbaran Bay.
The bold, contemporary design incorporates sleek lines and luxurious finishes, from cool smooth marble to highly polished teak and glossy black stone. Split over three levels, each floor provides a distinct experience. The chic living area on the main floor is filled with stylish furniture and artwork, with glass sliding doors giving the option for air conditioned coolness or open air freshness. The L-shaped building frames an infinity pool edged with shrubs, deck chairs, and a cushion-filled balé (relaxation pavilion.) The bedrooms on the upper floor are equally contemporary, but open up onto a long tropical-style wooden deck, where sea views and carved wooden planters chairs create a more casual vibe. The massive basement area adds a whole new dimension with spacious pool lounge, snooker table, ping pong, gym and massage room. A designated kids playroom and various safety features, makes Villa Adenium a good choice for families. The four-bedroomed villa is fully serviced, with discreet and friendly staff, and there is a separate staff room downstairs so you never feel crowded.
The gleaming kitchen is well equipped should you wish to self cater, but with a talented chef on hand and a decent suggestion menu (provisions on guest account,) it’s tempting not too. Take advantage of Jimbaran’s excellent fresh seafood and ask the chef to prepare a barbecue on the terrace, or take the short trip down to the famous night barbecues on the beach. There is certainly plenty to keep you busy at Villa Adenium, but should you wish to get out and explore, a complimentary car and driver (petrol not included) is available eight hours a day. Jimbaran is the gateway to the Bukit Peninsula, home to picturesque coves, rugged limestone cliffs and some of the world’s best surf breaks.

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.
Jimbaran lies on the western side of Bali's narrow isthmus, a sweeping bay that curves for five kilometres from the southern side of the airport to the bushy headland that is the home of the Four Seasons Resort and the start of The Bukit peninsula.
In spite of the many five-star developments in the area, Jimbaran Beach remains unspoilt and tranquil, the pace is still unhurried, the atmosphere relaxed and the sand soft and golden. The entrance to the bay is blocked by an unbroken coral reef, so although the calm water is not suitable for surfing, it is a safe haven for swimming. During the daytime it attracts guests from the nearby resorts, together with the occasional windsurfer. In the late afternoons, Balinese families come down to the beach. Kids paddle in the shallows and build sandcastles that are more reminiscent of miniature Taj Mahals than of Norman fortresses. Ice cream pedlars cruise for custom on pushbikes, dogs gambol through the sand, young men play football with makeshift goalposts, and the delectable smell of grilled sweet corn blended with charcoal smoke emanates from food trolleys parked at the water's edge.
The magnificent crescent bay is west facing, so at sunset the beach becomes the scene of a daily ritual as hundreds of visitors take their ringside seats at the plethora of seafood warungs; these simple beachside cafes run virtually the length of the bay and serve up the catch of the day.
