Nothing puts a traveler in the holiday mood more than a beach side luxury villa. Just steps away from the warm ocean waves and lush tropical island gardens, the fun in the sun begins the minute you drop your bags. 

Creating the setting of a beautiful Balinese home, modern architectural styles are matched with traditional elements in villa design. Add a private plunge pool, easy beach access and plenty of personal space for privacy and the benefits of a Bali holiday at one of these villa properties becomes clear.

Alila Villas Uluwatu
Situated on the cliff top peaks overlooking the shimmering waters of the Indian Ocean, Alila Villas Resort features one of the most idyllic settings. Designed for privacy, the stylish one and three bedroom villas feature their own individual pools which overlook a magnificent ocean vista. The open plan design lends to a feeling of airy spaciousness, where the soft tropical breeze gently flows through the comfortable space.  The construction of each villa is equally thoughtful with a framework that is both modern in appearance while also being environmentally sustainable.

Grand Nikko Bali Nusa Dua
The perfect getaway for couples, families or a small group of friends, Grand Nikko offers several comfortable villa options. Layouts include one, two and three bedroom floor plans and include both private pool and ocean views. Each villa and outdoor cabana features decorative pavilion style ceilings that combines traditional architectural elements with contemporary interior design. Dark wood beams and frames contrast beautifully with the light tone furnishings for a stylish, fashionable interior that guests will find so inviting, they may never want to leave. Of course guests will find all the modern conveniences here too, from free internet service to a Bose Sound System and iPod docking station.

Four Seasons Resort Jimbaran
From the ultra-deluxe Royal Villas with their lush gardens, private pool, hot and cold Jacuzzis and more than 600 square metres of living space, to the customary but equally stylish 1 to 4 bedroom thatched roof villas, the Four Seasons experience is one of total luxury.  Each retreat is set within a stone-walled courtyard for total privacy and features a pool as well as welcoming indoor and outdoor living spaces with sun terrace. And just steps from Jimbaran Beach, Four Seasons has another 9 'residence villas', all built to reflect a grand Balinese home. Each villa is built to reflect the traditional Balinese culture in a contemporary, but elegant design.

The Ritz Carlton Nusa Dua
The approach to villa accommodation at The Ritz Carlton Nusa Dua is one of scenic beauty, luxury, style and of course, comfort. From expansive cliff top retreats with panoramic beach and ocean views to intimate but stylish pool pavilions, all villas feature marble bathroom fixtures, oversized soaking tubs, walk-in rain showers and private pools. Guests can also expect the most modern of conveniences, from Bluetooth sound streaming, USB charging, Satellite TV and best of all, complimentary Wi-Fi.

I currently live in Brisbane, Australia. No matter where my travels take me, I enjoy experiencing each destination from the perspective of the locals. Some of my favourite attractions include historic sites, national parks and architectural landmarks.
