Thank you for your interest in our villas. We look forward to speaking with you!
Facing the scenic rice terraces of Umalas, Villa Galante is a private oasis within a short drive from Seminyak’s shopping and nightlife. This grand estate is so spacious it can comfortably accommodate up to 14 guests. The six airy bedrooms with timber floors are tastefully decorated with a fusion of elegant Asian influenced antiques and modern furnishing. The rooms are spread out evenly between the main house, the guest bungalow located at the front of the villa and a small antique Javanese house at the end of the garden. The villa effortlessly blends colonial elegance with tropical ambiance while providing all the modern comforts required for a memorable, relaxing stay.
There are four air-conditioned bedrooms located in the main house, and all have flat screen TV and DVD player.
A painting of a Chinese Emperor hangs above the king size bed of the first bedroom on the first floor. The billowing mosquito net are suspended from the high wooden beam ceilings and gently rest on the timber floors. From the tiled veranda, you can sit back and relax in the wooden sofa while enjoying the views of the garden and swimming pool. Stepping into the semi-outdoor en-suite bathroom will feel like you’ve travelled all the way to Morocco with its tadelakt style shower and walls, concrete basin and bathtub. There is ample storage space with all the built in shelves and a safety deposit box.
The second bedroom, also on the first floor, is located in the front of the main house. The four-poster king size bed is enveloped inside the over-sized mosquito net. You can admire the view of the lush front garden from the room’s own private terrace or retire inside the room in the cozy built-in alcove with soft white cushions. Without a doubt, the highlight of this bedroom is the majestic en-suite bathroom with its sunken concrete shower surrounded with antique hand-carved wooden panels and lanterns.
The painting of an elegant Balinese dancer watches over you in the third bedroom located on the second floor. A luxurious wooden king sized bed wrapped with floating muslin drapes to ensure a restful sleep. The orange tones of the reading lamps and ikat cushions reflect the bright orange bathroom walls. After a calming bath, you can sit and unwind on your private balcony with garden views.
White walls, high wooden beam ceiling, french windows, Asian influenced art and wooden furniture are no exception to this fourth upstairs bedroom. Pick a book from the built-in bookcase to read on your private balcony while admiring the view of the swaying trees in the front garden of the property. The plum colored cement walls of the en-suite bathroom combined with a 1930’s tub and octagonal washbasin create a retro-romantic atmosphere.
At the entrance of the property, facing the main house and next to a lotus pond, is a detached guest bungalow with its own private terrace furnished with antique daybeds and a Javanese marriage bed. Inside you’ll find a four poster king size bed hidden underneath a billowing mosquito net, a writing desk and a semicircular niche built in the wall covered with white cushions. The semi-outdoor en-suite bathroom is Moroccan inspired with its intricately stone carved windows and alcove shower. Take a relaxing bath in the freestanding bathtub whilst enjoying the views of your own private garden.
Despite its more rustic feel, the antique Javanese house, at the end of the garden in the back of the main house, has the same modern comforts, such as AC, flat screen TV, DVD player, like the other rooms. Enjoy the balmy evenings sitting from your own private veranda with paddy fields and garden views. Then prepare a soothing bath before turning in for the night in your mosquito-netted king sized bed.
The 18 meter pool located in front of the main living room is slightly curved just like the rice paddies in front of it. After a refreshing swim, work on your tan on one of the fours sun beds on the wooden deck around the pool. And if the heat gets too much, go for one of the boat leaf shaped beds in the shade of the palm trees. You can also enjoy your meals or a BBQ on the wooden table with matching benches. At dusk, you can appreciate the peaceful rice-field views as the fading sunlight stretches across the water.
The impressive 2500 meters of tropical landscaped garden is filled with scented frangipani, bright colored bougainvilleas, traveller’s tree and different varieties of palm trees. And the spacious lawn is perfect for running around or kicking a ball.
Heart and hub – literally – of the property, the open living area looks out over the pool, the gardens and the rice fields beyond. Located in the main joglo house it is split into 3 levels. The first level is just after the entrance hall and feels like you’ve entered the study of Indiana Jones, complete with vintage leather chairs, antique study desk and stone faced statues that look like they came straight out of Easter Island. The different comfortable lounging options at Villa Galante encourage a convivial house-party ambiance. Go down three steps to find a large white sofa with four matching armchairs and two low wooden coffee tables. And right next to it is an L shaped built in sofa bench with red cushions. The folding glass doors open to a tiled veranda where you can admire the view of the pool and the lush tropical garden from the small round wooden dining table with four cane chairs or the giant round orange foot stool. Next to the kitchen is a single slab dining table with white Panton chairs where 8 people can sit comfortably for a scrumptious alfresco meal on the veranda.
The warm hospitality of the staff will make each stay a very pleasant one. Should guests have any special requests for a massage at the villa, staff will go the extra mile to make these wishes come true. Please note that Villa Galante is a pet-free villa.
Villa Galante is ideally located in Umalas, just a 10 minute drive from the nearest surf beach and only a short drive from Seminyak which boast some of the finest shopping, dining, and nightlife on the island.
The villa is very spacious and it offers plenty of space. We felt very comfortable and enjoyed our stay very much. The handling of the staff was very pleasant, although sometimes the mobile itself was more interesting.
I cannot recommend Villa Galante enough. This was my first trip to Bali, and I can't wait to come back. Made and the staff were incredibly helpful. We ate out at the Italian restaurant located just a few metres down the street, and I recommend the pizzas. However, our most delicious meals were the ones provided by the villa staff. We ended up opting to eat in for my daughter's 18th!
Our group absolutely loved villa galante. The staff were so helpful and friendly! The villa was in a great position being close to everything. Would definitely recommend!
Thank you so much for a lovely stay at Villa Galante. We have enjoyed every minute of our vacation. the staff was incredible, catering to our every need. We will definitely recommend the place to our friends. And hopefully, we will see you again. Thank you!
We had the most amazing holiday here in Villa Galante! Made and his team made us feel just like home and the food was always delicious, better than in any restaurants on the island (compliments from a Belgian chef!).Villa Galante and staff is the perfect representation of Balinese hospitality, kindness and good taste. The entire family thank you for the warm welcome and the everyday smile! :)
Nous avons passé des vacances paradisiaques à la villa Galante . Le personnel est attentionné et efficace . Pas besoin de se rendre au restaurant , le chef Madé prépare des repas succulents . Nous avons profité de massages à domicile . Nous avions loué un minibus avec chauffeur et avons été très satisfaits de ses services . Merci à toute l’équipe . Toute la famille ( nous étions 13 ) apprécié.
The villa is absolutely gorgeous!! I’ve hosted my brother’s wedding here and the setting could not have been more perfect! The rooms are gorgeous, the food was fantastic, the location is great (about 5 mins in a cab to pantai berawa with all nice cafes and restaurants). The only minor issue was the staff and quiet a few misunderstandings caused by them (i.e. we left something behind and they refused to help us to get it back; they informed us 2 days before the weddings that they cant cater dinner anymore although they committed to it during initial booking which was extremely stressful given tight timeline; and just in general lacking a bit of balinese hospitality we have received in other villas/hotels in this beautiful island) however villa-bali staff were absolutely outstanding here and stepped it to make sure all issues are solved in a timely manner, im super pleased with villa bali people and would definitely use tgeir services again.
The Villa was much more beautiful and spacious than the pictures. The surrounding area was lovely and peaceful, except on NYE when we had the most spectacular fireworks all around us which was amazing ! The kids really loved that. Made and his staff were wonderful, always ready to help us with anything. Their food was absolutely delicious, especially the chicken curry ! We were a family group ranging in age from 7 years to 70 years and everyone loved it. Thank you.
We are still so in love with this villa, the staff were amazing and kind, will help you out with anything that is needed. We were married here and it flowed so easily. didn't need to worry about anything. The rooms will blow your mind they are beyond words. Couldn't gush more about it, close to anything you might need, and yet away from the bustle of kuta. Just a beautiful piece of paradise. If not us one of our family will be back to stay.
Unforgettable stay in this wonderful villa. The home is warm, spacious and beautifully decorated. You feel immediately at home. The garden and the pool are even more beautiful than the pictures! The manager, Made, is an outstanding chef, the staff is charming, both attentive and discreet. We had a wonderful Christmas at the Villa Galante in which we would return with great pleasure.
The Villa is even better than it looks in pictures, absolutely beautifully presented. There is not a bad bedroom in the house - each room is generous and very well equipped. The house is much more sprawling than it appears in photos, there is certainly no lack of privacy - cannot recommend it more for a group holiday. The communal spaces are extremely generous, there is no end to the small spaces to curl up with a book. The staff were unbelievably hospitable, preparing a whole host of amazing meals which suited us perfectly. The outdoor area is second to none, we couldn't have asked for more. An unforgettable, unbelievable stay, would recommend extremely highly.
We have been warmly welcomed each time by the wonderful team at Villa Galante since 2013. Once you enter the villa, you have a sense of peacefulness and relaxation. It is unlike any other place we have stayed before, as we really have the sense of coming "home" when we go back each time with our young children. The bedrooms are decorated elegantly and the living area is designed with beautiful local ethnic furniture and sculptures that give a spiritual yet trendy feel. Overlooking a well manicured garden and lounge pool with a rice field as the perfect backdrop, Villa Galante's tranquility makes you forget the busy lifestyle you are escaping from during your stay. Their convenient location is just 10 minutes away from Seminyak area, so you are always just a step away from the trendy bars and restaurants but with Made as the villa's chef and caretaker, you won't want to eat anywhere else! His self taught, wide range of delicious cuisines ranging from local to western dishes are fantastic! Also, the housekeepers are very kind and discreet, sincerely welcoming us back every visit. If there is any place we recommend staying in Bali for a complete getaway and relaxing trip - not to be stuck in the hustle and bustle of Bali tourist areas, it's at Villa Galante. It has become our second home there now!
This house is definitely incredible, close to very good places of Seminyak's center but it's really calm, like that you can concile calm, chill, Bali's bring of life and excursions. Bedrooms are bigs, bathrooms are open, decoration and furniture are really nice. You can enjoy being alone in few places and being with other in the big open livingroom. I stayed in this villa in August 2015, in family, my holidays were so good, the staff was perfect and the cook too.
