Bali Holiday Villa Rentals and Services

The diamond-shaped island of Bali, nestled within the Indonesian archipelago, is one of those rare, perfect, holiday destinations that offers something for everyone. Few places on earth celebrate life with such vitality. An ever-prevailing sense of harmony is combined with history, myth, hospitality, active spiritual practice and natural splendour. From the moment you arrive, an intense concentration of colour, sights, smells, sounds and tastes will assail you with the same force as the humid tropical air. Known as the ‘Island of the Gods’ and the ‘Enchanted Isle’, the beauty of the Balinese landscape is legendary. Six Herculean volcanoes stand sentry across the island’s central belt of thick tropical jungle; sacred springs, volcanic lakes, elongated river gorges and plummeting falls shed life-giving water onto fertile plains.

Hand-carved rice terraces stair-step through sharp edges of emerald plantings and mirror-like watery surfaces. A diverse flora and fauna flourishes within the primeval rainforests; endless sand beaches fringe the serrated coastline, and the encompassing ocean spawns a magnificent ecosystem flourishing with the greatest marine biodiversity on the globe. Bali blends its beautiful nature, exotic ancient history, palaces, temples, and sweet-scented Hindu festivals with world-class architecture, internationally-acclaimed restaurants and a vibrant nightlife. Where else on this planet could you find sapphire-tinged flower offerings to the gods placed within the nooks and crannies of five-star resorts?

The island is alight with traditions and famous for its gorgeous arts, which are inseparable from the cultural and religious life of the communities; whether dance, music, drama, paintings or carvings, art in every form is the masterpiece of the highly-valued Balinese culture. You will not fail to notice the intricately carved doorways, stone statues and wood sculptures, the time-honoured architecture of the temples and houses, the fabulous paintings, masks, textiles and ornate silver jewellery. Balinese cultural performances are visual, entertaining and exciting. Borne out of sacred rituals, they are accompanied by the shimmering, jangling, clashing, syncopated sounds of ethnic gamelan music.

Renowned for being home to some of the most stylish and sophisticated hotels, villas, and private residences in the world, Bali can rival anywhere in terms of unique and sumptuous accommodation, and has gained prestigious international awards for the top-class architecture of its splendid resorts and exclusive hideaways. The elegant interiors of these properties showcase classic Indonesian antiques, together with the contemporary furnishings and funky accessories that represent the creative collaboration of prima donna designers and skilled Balinese craftsmen. Chic clubs, swanky restaurants, delectable delicatessens, graceful galleries, cool spas, bohemian boutiques, glam homeware stores and a carefree sense of luxury abound within the trendy tourist areas.

The compact size of the island means that all of its scenery is easily accessible through day trips. Activities abound from surfing, golfing and diving, to adventure tours, theme parks, shopping and fine dining.

Come and let one of the most tranquil and transforming places on this earth work its magic on you.

Blissful Experience of a Villa Spa

Driving along the streets of Ubud reminded me to the news a heard a few months ago, Bali was named as the Best Spa Tourism Destination 2009 by Berlin based fitness magazine, Senses. The news itself was not a surprise as during the last decades I have been seeing Bali having more and more spas. I do not really pay attention in their offerings but I believe Bali has the widest range of available options in many point of views, various treatments from Indian ayurveda to traditional Balinese boreh, various price range from the ones on Poppies Lane on backpacker’s paradise of Kuta to Prana at the trendy enclave of Seminyak which is popular to the higher end holiday makers.

You can find spa in almost every tourist enclave across the island but I believe most are concentrated in the hillside resort town of Ubud. Serene environment surrounded by verdant rice fields and tropical forest, Ubud has perfect setting for blissful body, mind, and soul rejuvenation. For those who are prepared to pay more for luxury there are a number of names to consider such as Prana in Seminyak, Mandara Spa with various outlets in different locations, Thalasso at Grand Mirage Nusadua, Begawan Giri Spa in Ubud, Frangipani at Sheraton Nusadua, and Pita Maha Resort and Spa in Ubud are just to name some.

But what if you are among the new wave holiday style that seek for privacy as the sixth star beyond five-star luxury standard? In this distinguished group you certainly prefer private villas instead of public accommodation like resort hotels in the name of ultimate privacy. If you chose private accommodation, then getting rejuvenation treatments in the same level of privacy would be you preference as well, but is there any private spa around? The answer is yes. A few Bali luxury villas have dedicated spa and in-house therapist allowing you to enjoy the treatment at anytime you want in the privacy of your private villa.

Surrounded by rivers on two sides and rice fiend spanning to the horizon Simona Oasis at Canggu has a dedicated spa where you can enjoy your treatment in the serenity of its peaceful environment.
