About villa Istimewa

Staying at villa Istimewa is like having your own tropical little island with tree-houses but then right in the hustling and bustling center of Bali's happening Seminyak with restaurants, shops and bars nearby, perfect for those seeking the best of both worlds. Water is an important element at this 5-bedroom villa featuring a lagoon-like swimming-pool surrounded by a green garden an rustic wooden living pavilions with luxurious facilities welcoming large families or groups of friends looking for a charismatic holiday getaway.

Outdoor and pool area

After entering the gate to villa Istimewa and being surrounded by a lush green tropical garden it's hard to imagine you are still in the center of Seminyak. There is a beautifully curved swimming-pool with a shallow area where you can sunbath on the loungers, still feeling drips of refreshing water. On the veranda, underneath a vegetated pergola roof there is an alfresco wooden dining-table with pick-nick benches illuminated by 3 beautifully designed lamps. On the other side of the garden there is a BBQ area for a feast with delicious food and drinks.

The living area

From the veranda you can walk down to the sunken living area featuring an aquarium window, looking into the pool. This charming room features an antique timber interior design and the windows make this an open living area at day-time and an air-conditioned space in the evening. There is a large L-shaped sofa where you can chill and watch a movie with the projector and roll-down screen and on the other side there is a charming little kitchen equipped with the things you need. Walk further to discover a spa-area featuring a sauna a shallow water-feature with Buddha-statue and a Yin-Yang jacuzzi

So firstly the most important and the best done part of the villa stay is how great the staff is. Always incredibly friendly and helpful with a smile. This made the villa stay such a pleasant vacation. That is not all though, the pool was also great with the beachy gradient going deeper which was perfect for tanning as well as the fun see through window into the living room. Lastly, the villa is the perfect distance from the beach and the shopping area and an easy access to taxis as well. Overall our entire stay at the beautiful villa Istimewa could not have gone any better!

We had an amazing time during our stay at Istimewa. The house staff were very friendly and helpful, all meals were fantastic. Loved the Villa, the pool was fantastic and all the rooms all great. Location is also really great, very central and perfect access to all shopping and restaurants in Seminyak. Would highly recommend Istemiwa for a trip to Bali :) Thanks Anika!

We had a wonderful stay at istimewa. The staff were fabulous especially ketut who cooked us a wonderful breakfast every morning. The villa would benefit from a new toaster, normal sized forks and a large eskie for outside. The pool and grounds were kept immaculate. The pool was perfect for a lot of people. Rooms were lovely and made up everyday. Air conditioning in every room and all rooms positioned for privacy. The position of the villa is excellent. Very central, however down a laneway so away from the main rd and noise. When we arrived we arranged for the villa driver to pick us up. it would be handy to have more villa keys available when you are with a large group, however there is 24hr security who can let you in. We will definitely be back!

Villa Istimewa possesses an amazing charm about 50m away from the street and traffic, it's a peaceful haven. The staff was always available without being too visible. We all loved it and are sure to come back next year.
