Villa Asmara is situated about 100m away from the sea on Bali’s south-west coast, just beyond the sleepy village of Cemagi. The glistening black volcanic-sand shores and rocky outcrops are also home to the small, but picturesque sea temple of Pura Gede Luhur Batungaus. While strong currents make the water here unsuitable for swimming, there are plenty of rock pools to explore and seaside walks to be had.
This is the perfect environment to take a stroll or bike ride through the surrounding rice fields and experience the traditional Balinese way of life; you are bound to witness a village ceremony or two as you explore.
Despite its rural setting, the villa is only 30 minutes’ drive from the many restaurants and shops of cosmopolitan Seminyak. World famous Echo Beach is also within easy reach (10 minutes by car), where guests can enjoy the laidback surfer vibe, an ice-cold beer and some incredible sunsets.
It’s hard not to fall in love with Villa Asmara. Named after the ancient Sanskrit word for love, guests will be captured by the villa’s spell from the moment they enter its doors
Perhaps it’s the large wise Buddha gazing across the gorgeous green-stone swimming pool, or the sound of crashing waves in the distance, or the exotic tropical gardens, but one thing is for sure: you can’t help but feel the warm and positive energy that embraces this villa.
Set snugly between the beach and the terraced rice fields of Cemagi on Bali’s south-west coast, this four-bedroom ocean-view villa keeps you cool and comfortable at the same time. Marrying classic Balinese architecture with the comforts of modern living, guests are treated to a beautiful and luxurious home in a serene and peaceful environment.
With stylish air-conditioned bedrooms and ensuite bathrooms hidden under traditional alang-alang and ironwood roofs you’ll be guaranteed a blissful night’s sleep as soon as your head hits the pillow. Those wishing to expend a bit more energy can notch up some laps in the pool, play a match on the tennis court, sink some balls on the billiard table or pedal their way through the neighbouring rice fields.
Not only will you fall in love with Asmara, you’re likely to become quite attached to its staff too. From poolside cocktails to five-course dinners served by your very own villa attendants, all you need to do is lie back and relax.
Whether you want to rekindle your spirits, reconnect with family, inject some romance or simply indulge in sheer luxury, Villa Asmara will make your wishes come true.
