Apartment | 5 bedrooms | sleeps 10
Slung along a curve of pure white sand on Nusa Lembongan, a small tropical island just half an hour's boat ride from Sanur that moves to a different rhythm than mainland Bali (turn the clock back at least 30 years), is Villa Voyage; a completely private slice of paradise and castaway haven. This villa's rustic beach vibe – thatched roof and coconut-wood floors, driftwood lamps and safari-style canvas – invites you to shed your shoes at the door and ease instantaneously into laid-back island living.
But don't be deceived by the apparent simplicity; as you'll quickly discover, this is a barefoot-luxury villa brimming with contemporary comforts, cosseting staff and glamorous travel-themed designer flourishes (thanks to the refined aesthetic of the owner, an acclaimed fashion designer favoured by many a red-carpet celebrity). So expect artfully stacked vintage Louis Vuitton luggage, lavishly illustrated travel books, bespoke safari-style furniture, sumptuous bedding, state-of-the-art home entertainment system – quality in evidence everywhere. And that includes food: the villa's chef can whip up gourmet meals from a suggestion menu and is a dab hand at blisteringly delicious barbecues. (Alternatively you can cook for yourself, order take-outs from the beach club next door, or make a night of it in one of the many restaurants in Mushroom Bay.
While it's tempting just to lie back and enjoy the barefoot beachcomber life, those who prefer a more active holiday will appreciate the villa's open-sided buggy for exploring this fascinating island, as well as its private jukung (traditional outrigger) for snorkelling, fishing and floating picnics in the waters around Nusa Lembongan (extra charges apply). With its five spacious double bedrooms, all with ensuite bathrooms and private terraces or balconies, Villa Voyage is perfect for families and friends seeking an away-from-it-all holiday where you can do as much or as little as you choose, crowd-free, accompanied by spectacular views, sea breezes, the sound of the ocean, and a taste of the good life.

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.
The island of Nusa Lembongan lies 12 kilometres south east of Bali (only 18 kilometres from Bali's international airport). The 25-minute boat ride across the Badung Strait from Sanur is a great way to seriously slow down: leaving the hustle and bustle of the mainland behind and stepping ashore at Mushroom Beach is akin to stepping back in time – many say several decades! Laid back and easy-going, Nusa Lembongan is blissfully traffic-free – few cars, no buses, mostly just scooters and bicycles.
The eight-square-kilometre tropical island is ringed with white-sand beaches, limestone bluffs and mangrove forests and fringed by a coral reef. It's linked by a startlingly yellow suspension bridge (two-wheels or pedestrians only) to its tiny neighbour, Nusa Ceningan, beyond which is the third of this island sisterhood, the rugged Nusa Penida.
The island's crystal-clear waters are visited seasonally (July-September) by Mola-Mola, the majestic oceanic sunfish which contribute to the island's standing as a world-class dive destination. The shallow coral reefs attract snorkellers, while the more adventurous head for the surf breaks and cliff-jumping sites.
There's much to charm on dry land too: clamber across limestone outcrops on delightful headland walks; visit a seaweed farm (perhaps followed by a seaweed spa session); cycle through Lembongan Village to the mangroves on the northern shore. Tourist activity is focused on Jungut Batu (the island's second village) and Mushroom Bay, where the midday heat brings an influx of day-trippers from the Bali mainland. By 4pm the crowds have gone, and this beautiful beach of white sand becomes the preserve of lucky overnight residents, who have the run of barefoot beach bars, cafes and an increasing number of restaurants.
