Thank you for your interest in our villas. We look forward to speaking with you!
Villa Basilio is a luxury retreat for those who want to spend some time away from their city and is in a peaceful and quiet corner of Seminyak in Bali. The villa is situated at a short distance from the main centre of Seminyak and offers its guests and exclusive and private holiday spot to enjoy with their friends and family. The villa is set upon a sprawling 2400 sqm of lush tropical gardens providing plenty of natural and serene surroundings to its guests.
There are 6 bedrooms in total at Villa Basilio and another extra room well-suited for children. While 4 rooms are located in the main building, 2 rooms are situated in separate building in the garden area. All the 6 rooms are furnished with double beds and five of the rooms have en-suite bathrooms and the kids’ room has two single bunk beds. The rooms in the main building are around the kids’ pool behind the living room and each of the room opens out to the pool in the centre.
The area outside and around the main villa is lush with tropical trees and plants like banyan trees, frangipanis, and bamboos. There is 200 sqm swimming pool right outside the living space with a terrace which connects to the living area. The pool is lined with sunbeds and umbrellas, making for the perfect spot to relax in during the day or even night. There is another smaller pool, fit for children, which is connected to three of the rooms in the villa. It is located in the centre of all the rooms, giving the guests a tropical welcome each morning as they step out of their rooms. The well-kept gardens and pool, coupled with the bounteous greenery all around are ideal for a Balinese holiday, and you can breathe in heaps of fresh air and clear your head under the Bali sun.
The living and dining area is an open-plan space which leads to terrace connected to the pool outside. The living room is in the main building of the villa and comes with a fully-equipped kitchen, and guest bathrooms with outdoor showers. The living room is tastefully decorated and there is an abundance of comfortable sitting options, and a wall lined with a massive bookshelf. There is plenty to do in the living room, you can read a book, or laze around on of the many couches. The thatched roof, and the modern and traditional accents in the décor add to the exotic ambience of Villa Basilio. The living room provides a beautiful view of the pool and you can immediately walk out to the pool and go for a dip if you feel like it.
Villa Basilio pays close attention to all its guests’ needs, therefore they have employed 11 full time employees to ensure you are comfortable and all your needs are met. Housekeepers, laundry service, gardeners, and security are all present for your sake. There is a house chef who can cook delectable gourmet meals for you on demand. If the guests require a babysitter or a massage or spa treatment, the staff can make special arrangements on your behalf. There is also a yoga classroom on the property if you wish to get some exercise or meditate.
The Gado Gado beach is merely 700m from the villa as is the Jalan Raya shopping district of Seminyak. Guests can eat out at the many diners, restaurants, clubs and cafes around Seminyak just a short distance from the villa. Guests can even drive up to the popular Nirwana Golf Course if they wish to play golf.
We chose Villa Basilio because it had enough rooms to accommodate our family of 8 adults and six children and it had staff which meant that during our holiday nobody had to cook, clean, wash up or do the laundry. For the most part the rooms came up to expectations; all were en suite except for one which was interconnected with the room next door. They were spacious and air conditioned. The staff more than exceeded expectations, always on hand but never obstrusive. They were polite, helpful and always smiling. Any problems we had eg a couple of air conditioning units broke down, were dealt with promptly, even after working hours. The pools were cleaned twice a day and were very beautiful. The house is filled with interesting pictures, furniture and objet d'art and there is plenty of space for everyone. If you are looking for acres of plate glass and infinity pools, Basilio is not for you, but we loved it. It was the perfect place for a large family reunion.
14 of us descended upon this tranquil oasis in the heart of vibrant Seminyak. We ranged in age from 3 to 80 but this stunning villa and the friendly staff delighted us all and exceeded our expectations. Kevin, Wayan and Kadek made us feel welcome as soon as we arrived and all the staff continued to provide fantastic service and endless smiles throughout our stay. Beyond the beautiful jungle-like gardens and the high walls, the glitz, noise and buzz of Seminyak was ever-present but every time we wandered back through the gardens to the house it was as if we were transported into a peaceful rural homestead. We had the best of both worlds. The location and staff are superb but what makes this villa unique in the area is the size of the plot and the style of the accommodation. There is so much space. If we wanted to spend time apart there were several different areas with seats, hammocks and sun beds for chatting, reading, sunbathing or dozing and the two pools meant that kids could be wreaking merry havoc in one pool while adults indulged in a cool dip or a few lengths. Equally, when we all wanted to gather as a group there was plenty of room around the large dining table or in the vast main living space. And this is someone's home. It has been designed to be lived in by the owners and settling into its welcoming charms was an effortless and deeply rewarding experience. If you want a generic sleek modern minimalist 5* villa then look elsewhere BUT this offers so much more. The whole complex and each of the 6 bedrooms has been lovingly built and furnished in a wonderfully eclectic style - a mash-up of French nostalgia and Balinese charm. Be prepared for some angst when choosing who gets which bedroom - they are all so different and so desirable! There were some minor niggles (a broken air-con unit for example and some low-level music from neighbouring bars) but this is to be expected in any large home in an urban area and any problems were quickly dealt with by the staff. If this is the small price to pay for the opportunity to experience such a fabulous home then it is a price worth paying. Thanks to the owners, to Kevin, Wayan, Kadek, Maggie, Putu and the rest of the staff for helping create a truly magical week for us all.
We had 3 wonderful days in the Villa Basilio. Definitely would recommend to anyone wishing to stay in a chic and still warm and easy going atmosphere , with a large and wonderful tropical garden and only 500 meters to Seminyak beach. Lots of staff also to take care about you ... Can fit easily 2 families as the space is really everywhere. Highly recommend :)
We stumbled across Villa Basilio on our search for a villa that would take our party consisting of 6 adults and 3 children, and be in Seminyak near the beach. After much debating as groups traveling together do, we decided on Villa Basilio. What a great decision, on arrival at the airport we were greeting Putu our driver who stayed with us for the remainder of our holiday, arriving at the villa we were met by Kevin who we had been corresponding with and began our tour of the villa, so spacious and spread out, and the gardens were amazing, and were given a fruit cocktail by Wayan. The villa has two pools a large main pool near the living area and a kids wading pool outside the bedrooms, our children loved it and spent most of their time in the pool. The rooms are all spacious and have full outdoor showers, the rooms are all different and have a different theme and are all air conditioned. The villas theme is probably a bit more old school bali but was still new and clean and comfortable not like some of the newer more modern themed villas around and we loved it. All of the staff were fabulous and we had our own cook Lucy who organized the groceries and cooked breakfast, lunch and dinner for us, even organized our own suckling pig in the villa, we were very spoilt, nothing was to much trouble for any of the staff from doing our laundry to watching the kids in the pool. As a working mum my idea of heaven, and this villa was just that, a break away from life. There was some noise at night from local clubs just a low music hum, but that didn't worry us being so central to everything and no sound at all in the day. All in all we had a fabulous time at the villa and would go back as soon as we can and thank everyone at the villa for making our stay wonderful.
