The clue is in the name…
Watching the sunset is a daily ritual in Bali, and where better to watch it than at this absolute waterfront villa, which faces directly west across the gentle waters of Benoa Bay, offering a front row sun lounger view of its namesake.
Yet for us, Villa Sunset is not just about the view and the sunsets. It's also about the homely comfort, the attentive service, the private speedboat complete with captain for guest use, the kayaks for exploring the mangroves, and the car and driver inclusive of price for exploring the island.
Villa Sunset is modern in design with white walls and natural wood, local stonework and a tasteful decor set the scene beside an alluring swimming pool that can't help but make anyone feel right at home. In addition to its contemporary architecture, comfy furnishings, and colorful artwork, the villa also offers the choice of indoor or semi-outdoor living, as all of the air-conditioned rooms have glass doors that open wide to invite the cool sea breezes inside.
A hearty breakfast is included in the villa rate and will be cooked in your villa by your butler each morning. With a fully equipped kitchen in the villa it's perfectly set up for self-catering, but you are also invited to let the estate's, professional, in-house cook is available on request to prepare all your meals if you so desire. Our staff are also more than happy to jump on a motorbike and head out to the nearest market to buy groceries or pizzas for the kids. Tips are highly appreciated! Last but not least is in villa Spa treatments available by request from Div Spa, staffed by extremely well trained and experienced team of therapists who can perform any kind of treatment you wish with their healing hands.
The villa presents one bedroom upstairs and two downstairs at either end of a marble-floored living and dining room, together with a feature kitchen. Cushioned sofas arranged around a coffee table and flat screen TV provide a great place for socializing and hanging out. The room is equipped with air-conditioning, ceiling fans, a large, flat screen TV, DVD player and music system with surround sound, plus a collection of paperback books, toys and board games.
The two ground floor bedrooms mirror each other in size and facilities, which include a king sized bed in one room with a TV and satellite channels, and twin beds in the other, which are perfect for kids. Both rooms have en-suite bathrooms with bathtubs and outdoor showers. Both rooms open to a small stone terrace adjacent to the pool deck.
At the top of a flight of stairs, the master bedroom rests under a soaring roof along with a similarly outfitted bathroom as well as a balcony looking out over the pool and garden against the fabulous backdrop of Benoa Bay. Relish this spectacular view while lounging on the balcony in one of the rattan armchairs with a glass of wine or a cup of tea.
Outside, guarded by a gaily-painted Balinese door, which coordinates with the blues and greens of the sea and the sky, is a pretty walled garden with a flat lawn fringed by frangipanis and palms. Centrepiece is the enticing 20-metre pool, flanked by a Jacuzzi, a shingle-roofed bale bengong – literally a 'daydreaming' gazebo, which is the perfect spot for a massage, and an open-sided living pavilion, where afternoon tea is served and which is also ideal for chilling out with a book or an evening cocktail or glass of wine.

Purti Tirta Villas complex is located in the south of Bali, on the western side of the Tanjung Benoa peninsula and in close proximity from the luxury resorts, beaches and entertainment areas of Nusa Dua. The waterfront villas enjoy spectacular ocean bay views, allowing guests to watch spectacular sunsets right from the villa, and, when the skies are clear, the view of the sacred mount Agung.
Tanjung Benoa is a magnificent five kilometers long peninsula, which is much famed for its scenic views comprising beautiful coconut groves, white sandy beach, and incredible mountains. Today it is a popular resort area full of restaurants and cafes, SPAs and souvenir shops located less than two kilometers away from the villas. There are several beach clubs – Sakala, Tao, the de'Opera – that offer great facilities for a day trip (swimming pool, sun loungers, restaurants and bars).
Should you fancy a day on the beach, some of the luxury resorts located in Nusa Dua with its golden sand beaches and calm clear waters, such as Grand Hyatt, Nikko Bali, Nusa Dua Bali Beach Hotel, allow non-residents to use their facilities for a small charge.
In addition, it would be a great experience to take a visit to Tanjung Benoa's quiet port, with a village-like atmosphere. Likewise, while your stay at the destination, take a tour to the Chinese Buddhist temple found here.Not far from the temple, you will find one of the most authentic restaurants in Bali - Surya that serves fresh seafood with a bit of Chinese flavor.
