Apartment | 5 bedrooms | sleeps 10
Kalimaya surpasses expectation – but maybe there’s a clue in its name – literally, ‘River of Gems’ ¬– for it certainly delivers a free-flow stream of precious experiences that out-sparkle other Seminyak villas. Little wonder then that Hollywood movie stars and royal family members count among Kalimaya’s guests.
Each of the four two-storey villas in the Kalimaya family – two with two bedrooms, one with three and a five-plus-one-bedroomed villa – is set in its own private walled garden coloured with tropical blooms and cooled by lotus ponds and fountains. Each has an extraordinary amount of living space: not one but two living rooms, a separate dining room, fully equipped kitchen, and large terraces on both levels with teakwood tables for alfresco dining. There’s been no stinting on the furnishings either – plush upholstered sofas, solid teakwood furniture, oriental rugs, blackout curtains, and four-poster beds with King Koil mattresses and fine cotton bedding. There’s air-con absolutely everywhere, even in the enormous marble bathrooms – so it’s no problem to keep cool while preparing for the Big Night Out.
Such abundance continues in the gardens: each villa features a large swimming pool with jacuzzi, sun-loungers and parasols, alang-alang thatched balé, and an infra-red sauna. Further leisure facilities are at hand, as guest enjoy complimentary membership of the elite Canggu Club.
The jewel in the crown is the exclusive location behind Seminyak Square, a short stroll from the beach and the hip sunset hotspots of Ku De Ta and the Breeze at Samaya. And while some of Bali’s best restaurants are within easy walking distance, with a competent cook on the 16-man staff of butlers, housekeepers, gardeners and security, many guests choose to dine ‘at home’ – there’s a suggestion menu, and groceries can be purchased on account with a small mark-up to cover basics and transport.
Couples or families will be thrilled with the two- or three-bedroom villas while the five-plus-one-bedroom Kalimaya I is perfect for two families holidaying together. For larger gatherings, such as reunions or wedding parties, the villas can be booked together. So Kalimaya is a great choice for a family with teenagers, or friends who want to bask in luxury, be indulged by a highly trained team of staff, enjoy the hi-tech facilities, and still be in the thick of Seminyak action.

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.
A few kilometres north west of Kuta, Seminyak is a hip and happening district which has long been the lure of bohemians and jetsetters. This is Bali's late-night party land, laying claim to the highest concentration of independent fine-dining restaurants and beach clubs on the island, including Ku Dé Ta, Potato Head, Mozaic, Cocoon, La Lucciola, Sarong, Métis and Sardine. Seminyak also boasts a plethora of chic cocktail bars, sumptuous spas and fashionable boutiques.
Seminyak Beach is the place where the local and expat communities gather every evening at sunset. A playground of the rich, the famous and the bon vivants, the vibrant nightlife and luxurious accommodation of Seminyak draws a sophisticated crowd of 'beautiful people', especially Europeans.
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. For horse lovers, three riding stables are located at nearby Canggu – Kuda P, Tarukan, and Bali Equestrian Centre. Nirwana Golf Course – designed by Greg Norman and renowned as one of the best golf courses in Asia – lies about 20km up the coast beside the dramatic, waved-lashed sea temple of Tanah Lot. Seminyak is also convenient for all of Bali's main shops, shopping malls, Waterbom Park, and many tourist attractions.
