Thank you for your interest in our villas. We look forward to speaking with you!
Tucked away in the quiet village of Mendira on Bali's east coast, Villa Gils is just one house back from the waterfront. In no doubt one of the most enchanted locations on the island, this luxurious four bedroom villa is for those looking to escape the city buzz and experience a serene side of the island of Bali. Just a few minutes from the town of Candidasa and numerous secluded beaches, a stay at Villa Gils guarantees one of relaxation and complete tranquility.
The master bedroom at Villa Gils is located on the top floor of the main living pavilion, featuring a spacious air-conditioned suite with a four poster, king-size bed in its center.
Next to the master suite is a second family-designed bedroom, complete with two twin beds which can be configured into a king-size bed as well. These side-by-side rooms are especially ideal for any parents travelling with young kids or infants, as extra baby cots can be provided at no additional cost. Also on the upper level of the villa is a covered terrace for easy lounging and taking in the views of the ocean just a few dozen meters away. Use this open-air balcony to relax on the day bed or indulge in a private massage by your very own spa therapist.
The additional two guest rooms at Villa Gils are located on the ground floor in a thatched-roof pavilion with private verandas looking out to the swimming pool. Each of these bedrooms are air conditioned and offer flexible bed configurations, from plush kings to individual singles when needed. En-suite bathrooms are also attached to both poolside bedrooms, boasting outdoor showers and indoor sinks and WCs.
Just in front of the main building is a set of six sun chairs and the 25 meter swimming pool, designed with a small wading area for the kids which is separated from the deep section by a floating stone foot path. An alfresco dining balé resides next to the pool, yet another spot to join together for morning meals, sunset beverages and evening feasts. There is also an Alang-Alang gazebo with cushioned seating for when you want to hang out and dry off from the pool.
Next to the ground floor guest rooms is the breezy, open-concept living and dining area. In the middle stands a six person cocktail bar and chic kitchen space for creating specialized cocktails and dishes. Gather here or at the cozy sofa lounge just steps away where you can watch a DVD, read a book or play a board game all together. No matter what you choose, you never have to choose between indoor or outdoor living with a living room that looks out to a lush green garden and lap pool.
Villa Gils is lovingly staffed with five full time professionals, led by the exceptional manager Wayan who is a bank of local knowledge, tips and contacts. Whatever you desire for your trip to Candidasa and Bali as a whole, the team at Villa Gils will ensure your wishes are met. Snorkelling out at Mendira Beach? No problem. Dinner reservations at the nearest beachfront restaurant? Done! With such a rejuvenating ambience and idyllic location, it is no wonder Villa Gils continues to attract repeat visitors year after year.
Villa Gils is located in the peaceful Balinese village Mendira, right by the palm fringed black volcanic coastline of East Bali and near to the popular town of Candidasa The sea is calm, great for families with kids and Mendira Beach also features beautiful coral gardens and colorful fishes, making it great for snorkeling For a delightful dinner, head to Vincent’s, a Jazz bar and restaurant with a classy ambience and a great ocean view.
What can we say - we found heaven! Wayan and her team are totally amazing. From cooking us the most fabulous food - we only ate out twice during our 12 days - to arranging in villa massages - to booking taxis for us - nothing is too much for the Villa Gils team. The villa is a dream - and the pool - words cannot describe how amazing it is - all 25 metres of it. The villa location is tranquil and amazing - you are in the village and experience true Balinese village life - and go to sleep to the sound of the crashing waves from the nearby ocean. Your alarm clock is the local rooster! We can’t recommend Villa Gils and Wayan and her team highly enough.
We stayed for 5 nights and the villa is just a dream. Very comfortable rooms with air-con and fan. Unusual bathrooms with outdoor showers on the upper floor. Of course the best of the Villa is Wayan and her team. Great breakfast and dinners. Large choice of food cooked in a better way then many restaurants. Wayan will assist you with everything you need. Organizing sightseeing, taxi, transfer, special food or booking to the surrounding islands, just ask and she makes it happen. This is real 5 star house which I can only recommend.
Everything about the Villa was amazing!! The rooms were spacious, clean, and each had their own bathroom. The staff was unbelievable. Always there when you needed them and were so accommodating. The food was delicious! We had someone with food allergies and they worked with us to make sure he had food he could eat. We ate in most nights because it was so good. Wayan helped us set up excursions and rides to and from places. Made it super easy to see the island. Wayan had also suggested three different restaurants nearby for our last dinner. The one we had decided on had a view of the beach and had a variety of things on the menu. Something for everyone! I would highly recommend this place to anyone going to Bali and if I make my way back there, I would stay here in a heartbeat!
We had an awesome time just relaxing and hanging out at the villa. The staff were very accommodating and cooked us amazing food. Wayan helped us with everything from day trips to organizing massages at the villa and getting a fishing boat for the day. The only negative was a loud gekko who had moved in under the ceiling between the two poolside bedrooms so he kept waking us up during nights. Once he’s gone I can definitely recommend Villa Gils for a relaxing and beautiful stay!
Really nice villa. Comfy and clean rooms. Lovely big pool and grass area. Quiet location. The staff were absolutely lovely and super helpful. The food was OK - they catered our vegetarian diet fine. Not particularly exciting options and a bit bland but it was OK. Nearest beach is a short drive away. Or a 15 min walk. Overall a really nice place and would recommend it.
Fabulous villa with great staff. Manager has great English and was very helpful with activities and restaurant recommendations. The villa was lovely and in a great location.
Villa Gils is beautiful, very well maintained. Huge pool, with space for children. The staff is lovely, always there to meet any request. Nice beach 5min walk!
Highly recommended villa. We had three generations together for our biannual catch up and really enjoyed our time. The rooms, grounds and villas are kept very well. The food is great, we ate at the villa more than eating out as it was much better! (also easier with kids than going to restaurant) The staff are very friendly and happily go out of their way to be as helpful as possible. Always someone on site, our out of timezoned request for 5am coffee was no problem!
Villa Gils was fabulous. The staff were amazing, we loved the food, and the villa was beyond our expectations. We're already planning our next visit.
A very warm welcome, all the staff could not do enough for us, a magnificent villa for our stay, it was just perfect! Very Recommended!!

We spent four delicious days at villa Gils. This villa is perfect for all of ages, bedrooms on the ground floor for grand parents et two big bedrooms for children and parents on the first floor. Staff was amazing, always there 24/24, discret but there when we need. Wayan, the villa manager was always smiling, with a lot of good advices for adults and children. Garden and swimming pool are really good maintain
What to say? This is just THE most wonderful of villas and Wayan and the team are amazing. So comfortable, a very private and beautiful site, immaculately maintained, the team cannot do enough for you and their food is simply delicious, in fact we struggled to leave the villa we loved it so. Ideal for 2 families travelling together as two distinct living areas although worth noting that one of these is not interconnecting. Our children are older so we didn't mind but some might. The surrounding area of Candidasa is charming and unspoilt with a very good choice of local restaurants a short taxi ride away. Most restaurants offer a free taxi service so it was never an issue being tucked away! White Sands Beach (only 10 mins taxi away) is something else with massive dramatic waves one day and calm as a mill pond the next and we easily enjoyed trips to Ubud on one day and Tirta Gangga and Tenganan another. It definitely feels relaxed and slow paced in Eastern Bali so don't come if you want the nightlife! We just loved loved it and couldn't recommend it more highly!
the villa was really good and the staff very attentive. We would love to find in this standing villa a machine to do un good Expresso coffee.
We recently spent our third holiday at Villa Gils, and again loved every minute. The villa itself is very comfortable and spotlessly clean, with a fantastic ambience and an excellent swimming pool. Our friends, on their first visit to Candidasa, loved it - loved being able to walk through the local village and feel like they were actually a part of it! The reason this villa is so good though, is the staff. Nothing is too much trouble for any of them, and I must make special mention of Wayan, the manager. This human dynamo is a manager "par excellence", an amazing source of information, ideas, and contacts. All you need do is get to Bali, Wayan will take care of the rest. You can rest assured that your holiday is in good hands. Villa Gils is a little way south of the centre of Candidasa, but there are good restaurants and warungs within a few minutes' walk, and many of Candidasa's better restaurants will happily send a car for you, and bring you home again, gratis. Wayan will book this for you. We spent Nyepi Day (the day of silence, when everyone must stay at home) reading, swimming, and generally relaxing, with our needs attended to by two staff who spent the entire 24 hours "on duty" - a big thank you to Karmi and Kadek - making sure we were well fed and comfortable. Villa Gils is our favourite place to stay in Bali when travelling with friends - 3 couples sharing the cost makes it very affordable. A wonderful experience is guaranteed!
The staff at the villa were most helpful and friendly. Always had a smile on their faces. Being in Candidasa, the distance to town was expected. The villa is very well kept and clean! Would definitely recommend this for anyway looking to get away from the crowds. The staff recommended this quaint seafront restaurant that is part of a resort adjacent to us, a 5 minute walk from the villa for our first dinner in Bali. The in-house chef was also very good. We had all our breakfasts and some lunch/dinners cooked by them too. When we tried to cook our own lunch once, they were very patient and assisted as we stumbled around the kitchen. :)
Best family holiday ever was had here - thank you to all the wonderful staff who made it perfect!!!
We just came back from 5 nights stay at Villa Gils. We enjoyed our stay very much. The villa is very clean, spacious, safe and comfortable. The location is not in the centre of Candidasa, but since we had a car, this was not a problem. The Villa is not by the beach but it has a big swimming pool which was adequate for us. Wayan and her team - Karmi, Nobu, Kadek and the night guard, had done superb job to make sure our stay comfortable. They are very warm and sincere. We could see from their expressions and gestures that they happily served us. We will definitely come back for our next diving trip in East Bali.
We had the opportunity to stay at Villa Gils a year ago for a week and loved every second of our trip! The staff is amazing. Very friendly and quick to help us with anything we could think of. The Villa itself is open and airy and very comfortable. If you are looking for a vacation destination in Bali (or Candidasa), this is the place!
