Thank you for your interest in our villas. We look forward to speaking with you!
Villa Zelie is a cluster of about 10 pavilions that represents traditional Balinese architecture especially with the prominent Joglo roofs as the predominant structural element. Earthy, wood interiors are appointed with lavish and ornate period furnishings, as well as decorated with tribal accouterment and wood carvings of traditional figures. In contrast, amenities are thoughtfully first rate – assuring each and every guest of absolute convenience and enjoyment. In the midst of Canggu’s famous rice terraces, Villa Zelie presents to you a synergy of tasteful and old-fashioned as well as modern and urban comfort with a mood that’s truly rustic and tranquil.
The villa has five bedrooms – each in its very own pavilion. All bedrooms have king-sized beds as well as dedicated, semi-open bathrooms with natural stone bathtubs. All bedrooms also have covered terraces with sitting areas.
The centerpiece of the property’s extensive garden and well-maintained lawn is the 25-meter swimming pool. Dive into its alluring, crystal clear waters for routine laps and some aimless wading. Or, push everyone in for some splashy fun and games. For a breather, you can stretch out on wide and cushioned wooden pool beds on the lawn surrounding the swimming pool.
At the airy, semi-open, high-ceilinged main pavilion is the living area. Around its large and long couches, you can all gather for engaging and lively conversation. At one end of this pavilion is a bar where cocktails and after-dinner drinks are poured out, mixed and served up. At a separate pavilion is the dining area with its long wooden table that can accommodate 10. Here, you can all have your fill of authentic local cuisine – as well as international favorites – concocted by the in-house chef at the fully-equipped, modern kitchen in a stand-alone pavilion behind the dining pavilion. In another pavilion on one side of the main pavilion is the TV room where you can catch the show you’ve been closely following. Or, go on a marathon of your can’t-get-enough-of movies. Out on the garden is an elevated bale where you can relieve sore muscles with a traditional Balinese massage along with pampering spa treatments.
Tasked to render the villa’s day-to-day services is a staff composed of a personal guest assistant, a chef, a pool attendant, a gardener as well as housekeepers and security personnel. A babysitter, a driver, a laundry helper and a spa therapist may, upon your request be called in. Their services, however, come with a separate charge. A scooter and a car are also for rent.
Villa Zelie is located in Canggu. A 10-minute ride from the villa will take you to Seminyak – Bali’s center of tourism. Navigate your way to the Oberoi District’s Eat Street – known among foodies for its casual to fine dining restaurants. Notable among these are La Lucciola, Mamasan, Metis, Sardine and Sarong. Roam around and you’ll encounter malls, fashion boutiques, novelty shops and souvenir stores. You will hit Seminyak Beach eventually. Pick a spot at any of the cozy beach cafes and chill out until sundown. By night fall, experience, firsthand, the pulsating nightlife at in bars and clubs such as Potato Head and Ku De Ta.
Arriving at the villa you feel like stepping into a page of Vogue magazine. Great taste and sophistication of decorations. Staff were extremely friendly and professional. Excellent location with easy walk to the beach. Chef had completely spoiled us with the quality and variety of the food. Definitely would love to return given an opportunity.
We have just returned from our stay in the beautiful Villa Zelie, and all I can do is rave about it to my friends and family. If you want an authentic Balinese/Indonesian/South East Asian experience, this is IT. We knew our experience would be special from the moment we were picked up in the villas' monster 4WD. This is luxury for adventurers and not for the precious - perfect for navigating the traffic-filled streets of Seminyak, plus you'll be sure to be noticed. It's a short trip through Batubelig and on to the more charming district of Canggu, but once you're there, why would you even want to leave? This is the question we asked ourselves, because the moment we stepped through Zelie, it was like a second home. Chris the manager has become like family in the short 2 days we were there, plus the service from butlers Puja and Ketut is second to none. And I haven't even started on Chef Made's mouthwatering Indonesian and Asian food. The villa is stunning and the interior on point - if you like authentic wooden Joglos sourced from Java as well as objets d'art from the surrounding archipelago. If you're going to get freaked out by masks, statues and other such decor (plus mosquitos), this is NOT the place for you. We loved how every single corner of the property was well-thought out in terms of design and decor, down to colourful rugs, massage bale, pool house (where we spent most of our time, when we weren't in the pool, that is) and the warm in-ground slate-tiled pool that became our playground every day. Each of the 5 joglos are a study in detail, intricate carving, and texture, but the master joglo is truly a masterpiece, especially its open-air bathroom which truly makes you feel like you're in the tropics. I had a gander around Villa Asli as well, which is situated just next door, and would make the perfect companion to Zelie if you have a large group. It's much more 'local' in flavour, thanks to its lotus ponds and bridges that lead to each joglo. We'll definitely be back!
I went with my wife! We chose the villa zelie :) A dream setting where the Indonesian style is waiting for you !! Calm, warm and very clean. The staff is at your pampering and very welcoming. Located between the sea and the rice fields. I highly recommend this vacation spot. Ps: I go back next year for sure !!
We've just come back from the most amazing 8 nights with our closest friends at Villa Zelie in Seminyak. We are already looking forward to our return trip. We traveled with our 4 little kids to Villa Zelie to meet our friends at their 2 children in Seminyak. The villa was breathtaking - especially in the evening with the hundreds of spotlights were lighting up each of the individual rooms, the pool, and the other areas of the villa. Everything was extremely well decorated with Indonesian art well selected in each of the rooms displayed as if we were staying in the highest end gallery. The beds were exceptionally comfortable and each room was like a fairy tale - decorated uniquely and with exquisite taste. The property itself was beautiful - quiet and serene and really we heard very little there from the hustle and bustle of Seminyak - which was just a 10 minute cab ride away if you wanted the entertainment but felt far from the villa in terms of the actual property. The pool was gorgeous and so serene - and every night we would go on a frog hunt with the kids - often finding 10-15 frogs right outside the rooms singing their peaceful lullabies at the lily ponds. The staff was remarkable in everyway - they are what makes this property 100%. Gugun the manager was truly the best property manager we've ever met - he rivals 6 star hotel concierges in recommending activities from elephant riding in Ubud, the most peaceful yoga instructors, responsible and gentle babysitters for our children, surfing at nearby beaches to the top local restaurants. He knew people everywhere! In addition we cannot say enough about our Butler Arta - we all just adored him and miss his always ready smile and helpful hand. I'd also like to say thank you to the kitchen staff of Made and his team who managed our 2 year old complicated allergies with ease and created Indonesian and continental masterpieces for 3 meals a day. Of specific mention were their satays, salads and fish dishes which we all enjoyed so much. Thank you to Villa Zelie - the tears we all cried on our departure really does mean we will be back very soon for another stay.
