The Made Widjaya-designed setting is stunning – mature gardens splashed with technicolour bougainvillaea and tropical blooms, emerald lawns with meandering paths and whimsical statues, and a huge water-garden of interlinking ponds with banks of lotus, koi fish and fountains. Interspersed within this verdant oasis are multiple alang-alang thatched sleeping and living pavilions – among them two air-conditioned living rooms, an upper level open-sided living room, garden living pavilion, yoga and meditation octagon, cellar bar, poolside and water garden bales and two dining terraces each seating up to 14 guests. The seven suites are equally generous, adorned with antique furniture and artwork curated by the well-travelled Asian expat owners who show impeccable taste and an appreciation for the island’s bounteous natural materials.
The accommodation is grouped into two distinct homes – the four-bedroom Garden Residence, and the three-bedroom Pond Residence, each with their own swimming pool. (Each residence can be rented independently from the other if you don’t need seven-plus bedroom; but they are never rented to two separate groups at the same time, so you will still enjoy complete privacy.)
With its multiple-pavilion layout and myriad facilities, the fully staffed Villa Waru is perfect for two or three families who love social space and breathing space in equal measure. The place is clearly a much-loved family home, and kids of all ages will be well entertained with the large pool, plunge pool, air-conditioned media room, table football, electronic keyboard and pool table. And for that special family reunion or romantic stop-the-clock wedding, this magical estate is matchless.

Villa Waru stretches across the peak of the Taman Yasa estate, an exclusive enclave wrapping a hilltop above Nusa Dua and Benoa. This elite community of just 21 widely spread out luxury villas promises peace and tranquillity for its residents, who benefit from a guarded entrance gate and 24-hour security patrols, plus the estate’s communal pool and library. The white-sandy beaches of Nusa Dua and Jimbaran are a mere 15 minutes away, as are the shopping centres and restaurants of the myriad five-star resorts lining the shore. And thanks to the new cross-sea tollway at the base of the hill, the journey to the airport, Sanur and attractions further afield is quick and easy.
Villa Waru’s supervisor has a wealth of information about nearby places of interest and will help arrange transport and make any bookings required. Chat to the staff too; many have been attached to the villa for some time and are a great source of insider information. In the meantime, here’s a taste of the many and varied activities on offer within reach of the villa.
- Nusa Dua beach is one of the cleanest and longest in southern Bali. Here, as well as enjoying a swim in the calm reef-protected water, you can wind surf, kayak, jet ski and para-sail. Quicksilver run daily tours to Nusa Penida island (world-class diving destination and home of the fabulous mola-mola sunfish) from nearby too.
- For shopping, visit Bali Collection, located within the Nusa Dua resort enclave. The mall is a multi-faceted complex of retail department stores, shops, an art market, and local and international restaurants and bars. If you would prefer to barter for some cheap clothing, check out Nusa Dua’s two tourist markets, one is situated on Jalan Pantai Mengiat (near Mengiat Beach) and the other is close to Melia Bali Resort.
- At Jenggala Keramic in Jimbaran, visitors can browse and buy from a vast range of handcrafted ceramics and glassware. Jenggala also runs ‘Make and Paint a Pot’ sessions where ‘Children’ of all ages are encouraged to get creative.
- Soar above the spectacular southern coastline of the Bukit Peninsula on a Paraglider. Paragliding courses and solo flying for the experienced are available as well as tandem flights in the safe hands of experienced instructors. The training centre is at Timbis Beach on the south coast of The Bukit.
- Perched on a cliff 70m above the roaring Indian Ocean, Uluwatu Temple (Pura Uluwatu) is one of Bali’s nine key directional temples. Facing west and with steep headlands on either side creating an unbelievably dramatic setting, sunsets over Uluwatu are a sight not to be missed.
- A seafood feast at Jimbaran is a must for every holiday in Bali – dozens of seafood warung (cafés) line this west-facing beach, perfect for a sunset dinner. Fine dining options are available at most of the big resort hotels in this area; notably Sundara at Four Seasons in Jimbaran, the lunch menu here offers wood-fired pizza, sushi and Balinese delights, while the dinner menu presents gourmet steak and seafood selections.
- Uluwatu is the place for surfing enthusiasts. Most of the breaks here are only suitable for advanced or expert surfers – the waves are big here. Particular highlights are Uluwatu, Dreamland, Padang-Padang, Bingin/Impossibles and Suluban.
- Golfers may wish to play a round at the award-winning 18-hole Bali National Golf Club or the stunning cliff-top Bukit Pandawa Golf & Country Club.
- An annual international kite festival takes place at Padang Galak beach (just north of Sanur) every July. Traditional Balinese giant kites up to ten metres in length are made and flown competitively by teams from different villages around Bali. Originally, these kites were intended to send a message to the Hindu Gods to create abundant crops and harvests. Aside from the festival itself, visitors will see many giant kites being flown in this area from June through to August.
