Beautiful colonial villa just minutes from the beach, with 4 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms.
Villa Lulito is an elegant colonial retreat located at the pulsing heart of chic Seminyak just moments away from Petitenget beach on Bali’s sunset coast. This fully staffed villa sets a stylish tone as a tropical getaway for families or groups. Four white plantation-style pavilions border a 15-metre azure pool that forms an outstanding centrepiece for a small soiree. The two-level sleeping pavilion houses four luxurious bedrooms while three sleek open living areas provide a collection of zones to chill, engage or play. Chose between formal feasts in the smart dining area or casual alfresco meals at the dining table nestled within the villa’s lush gardens.
As you approach Villa Lulito via the sophisticated shopping and dining enclave of Oberoi, rubbing shoulders with iconic Bali landmarks including the super-cool Ku De Ta and the elegant hotel after which the area is named, it is obvious that the villa can lay claim to an exclusive and coveted location.
And once beyond the threshold of this luxurious villa oasis, Australian interior designer Stuart Membery’s tribute to Ralph Lauren’s polished Caribbean style is also pleasingly obvious: everything from the beautifully hand-rendered walls along the drive and the majestic custom-made Aegean blue doorway, to the soft-cushioned rattan chairs, white shutters and maritime motifs coupled with exposed timber beam ceilings and hurricane lamps, evokes refined empire.
Think Montego Bay meets Bali.
Families, couples or friends will adore soaking up the charm of this 2011-built residence, which has four generous ensuite bedrooms, including a delightful kids room with four bunks and the option to add another king-size bed (extra charge), and plenty of living space.
Two bedrooms flank the villa’s double entranceway and face the pool, while above them two more suites open onto a long balcony overlooking the azure water, which is lit at night by neon blue lights creating a mesmerising aquatic art piece. Relax into one of several comfortable living rooms that meander through the pavilions and include a quiet alcove with plush sofas for watching TV, perusing the library, listening to music or enjoying an aperitif.
Landscape gardener Bruce Johnson created a kaleidoscope of tropical gardens that fringe the pavilions.
A dedicated staff team provides five-star service and expertly prepare gourmet delights to be served in one of three dining areas from casual in the gleaming kitchen to a timelessly set table for eight in the formal dining room. Everything is at your fingertips, including massage beds that are just waiting for a therapist to be called to deliver expert treatments.
Step outside and you are at the centre of Bali’s best shopping district, with hip cafes, fabulous nightclubs and fine restaurants to chose from. One of the island’s most important Hindu temples and glorious Seminyak beach are just a stroll away. Breathe in the sea air and get your holiday rocking from this perfectly placed villa.
Villa Lulito’s double entranceway opens to a reception flanked by two bedrooms and sets the stage for the grand colonial open living room across the glittering pool. Above the entrance two further bedrooms are reached via a long breezy balcony. Wander along the poolside to the fully equipped kitchen pavilion – a wonderful place for a casual breakfast. Adjacent is an alfresco dining area that leads to the main living pavilion with its polished formal dining space, chic and comfortable sitting room plus an entertainment zone. At the far end of the pool is a graceful garden pavilion with daybeds and decorative touches creating beautiful tableaus everywhere the gaze falls.
A two-storey pavilion houses all four ensuite, air-conditioned and fan-cooled bedrooms at Villa Lulito – two at pool level and two on the floor above, accessed from a long, white, covered balcony. Plantation shutters, rattan trunks and lush potted palms create a serene environment that is perfect for holiday downtime.
The upper-floor master suite is furnished with a luxurious, netted, four-poster king-size bed with internal LED reading lights and feather-light linen. A soft chair provides a quiet corner to take in the view of the pool or watch a DVD in privacy, and a freestanding bathtub features in the adjoining air-conditioned bathroom that’s also fitted with a separate shower. This room easily converts to a family suite by sliding open the double doors in the dressing area to connect with the adjacent children’s room.
All in white, four netted, custom-made bunk beds bedeck an entire wall of this gorgeous room, which also offers the option of an additional king-size bed (on request and at extra charge). Draws, shelves, ladders and bags of space create a fabulous play area for little ones to safely enjoy. Fun touches include brightly coloured cushions, plush dinosaur laundry baskets and packed bookshelves. The adjacent bathroom has a separate shower and WC plus child steps for the sink and vanity.
These mirror image ground-level bedrooms capture the essence of the colonies with large rattan and leather travel trunks set at the base of bamboo four-poster king-size beds. Crisp white finishes create a gentle ambiance and high levels of comfort. Ensuite bathrooms with large round mirrors and rain showers complete the scene. Double doors open directly onto the terrace by the pool with scattered loungers and comfortable cushioned chairs at the ready for total relaxation.
Three open-fronted colonial-style living pavilions overlook the pool at the heart of Villa Lulito. The fan cooled kitchen and casual dining pavilion is light and airy and home to a breakfast table for eight people and a comfortable lounge with a large coffee table.
An alfresco dining table in a corner of the tropical garden makes the perfect venue for a barbecue lunch beneath lush palms. Sun loungers circle the 15-metre pool on three sides and a basket of pool toys will keep the children happy. The stunning white garden pavilion sings a song to lure you onto its plush daybeds. Immerse yourself in this uber-chic chill zone for a languid afternoon nap while the whispering overhead fans keep the heat at bay.
The main event is the grand living pavilion; home to a formal dining area for eight people. The Bose sound system will fill the air with musical accompaniment as you sink into the softly cushioned sofas and admire the historic prints that grace the walls.

Things to do :
Given Villa Lulito’s location in upmarket Oberoi, on the fringes of Seminyak, there is no shortage of things to do. Your villa manager is a font of ideas and suggestions for exciting and interesting activities and will be happy to make tour and restaurant bookings on your behalf. Ask the staff about special Balinese ceremonies or festivals that may be coming up during your stay, such as the monthly full moon ceremony. Guests are always welcome to attend these events, just be sure to wear appropriate clothes, which may simply be a sarong tied around your waist.
In the meantime, here are just a few of the many and varied activities you can enjoy during a stay at Villa Lulito:
- The iconic Ku Dé Ta is an internationally famous restaurant, beach club and world-class party venue, oozing style and sophistication. By late afternoon the vibe is upbeat with a hip clientele indulging in cocktails, Champagne and oysters, while resident DJs fuse the mood with chill-out sounds.
- Hire a luxury vessel from Pulau Luxury Charters for a champagne sunset cruise, a snorkelling trip in the crystal clear waters of Nusa Lembongan or sail on a 46-metre twin mast schooner for a day tour tailored especially for your desires.
- Designed by Greg Norman, the beautiful 18-hole, par 72, championship-standard Nirwana Bali Golf Course is bordered by ocean and rice fields, and features dramatic, strategically positioned white sand bunkers, freshwater creeks and mature trees, making it one of the most visually spectacular courses in Asia. Three holes are played on cliffs, whilst the twelfth hole overlooks the Tanah Lot sea temple.
- Visit Pura Tanah Lot. Dramatically perched on a craggy outcrop, this highly venerated sea temple’s setting may resemble Piccadilly Circus late afternoon, but watching the sun slip behind the ancient silhouette and scoring a blessing from a Hindu priest makes it all worthwhile.
- Bali’s Elephant Safari Park is highly recommended, not just for a great family adventure, but for the journey there and the area in which the park is located. Keep a lookout for the scared white cows on the drive up. The park is home to rehabilitated working elephants from Sumatra. You can ride them through the surrounding jungle or just hang out by the pool area and hand feed them sugar cane while they play in the water. Around 40 minutes drive from Ubud.
- Covering 3.8 hectares of tropical parkland in Kuta, Waterbom Bali has 16 water slides (including the Climax with its 360 degree loop) to entertain the young and the young at heart. A great family day out, but go early to beat the crowds.
- Contemporary art gallery Biasa ArtSpace showcases quirky pieces by select, up and upcoming Indonesian artists who master various forms, from paintings, figurines, to enigmatic sculpture and awe-inspiring works. The clothes are fabulous too.
- Get pampered at Bodyworks day spa, which presents quality treatments at very reasonable prices, making it a favourite with Bali’s expats.
- Jimbaran Sunset and Seafood cafes scatter the sand between Kedonganan and Jimbaran within inches of the sea. The seafood here is aromatic and delicious; dine from romantic candlelit tables spilling liberally onto the sand.
