Sand, sea & sun
a perfect combination for a perfect holiday.These villas are all right on the beach. Feel the sand, listen to the waves... start to relax.
Villa Batujimbar exemplifies everyone’s dream of a luxury Bali villa, with its Sanur beachfront location, its fascinating history and a celebrity guest list that boasts monarchs and rock legends. This is where Mick Jagger and Jerry Hall tied the knot, Sting gave an impromptu concert, and Princess Diana retreated from the media glare.
When the current owner – who took over from Aman hotelier Adrian Zecha in the mid-1990s – first visited Batujimbar in the early 1970s, acclaimed Australian artist Donald Friend had already invited architect Geoffrey Bawa to apply his signature ‘tropical modernist’ style at the Batujimbar Estate. Bawa created a harmonious relationship between buildings and landscape, influenced by the famed Balinese palaces at Amlapura and Klungkung and the water gardens of Tirta Gangga. His moated Lembu Balé with its stately living area still commands centre stage, and today provides an enchanting setting for wedding ceremonies.
Villa Batujimbar’s myriad living areas and nine bedroom suites occupy a series of thatched pavilions enriched with museum-worthy paintings, heirloom artefacts and architectural treasures. Within the meticulously maintained gardens, fountain-filled lotus ponds, moss-encrusted statuary and intricately carved stone reliefs contribute to the villa’s unique character.
While its design pedigree might be firmly rooted in the past, the villa’s facilities will be welcomed by today’s discerning vacationer: a 20-metre swimming pool, private tennis court, a private chef and personal round-the-clock butlers to elevate your residency to regal levels.
Start your day with coffee at the beachfront balé, facing the island of Nusa Lembongan across the calm waters of Sanur bay. After a breakfast served on heritage Jenggala tableware in the alfresco dining pavilion, slip through the ornate gateway onto the golden-sand beach for a swim or sprint along the promenade. At day’s end, feast on dishes prepared by your private chef, or take a five-minute stroll to the myriad restaurants that line Sanur’s main entertainment and shopping street.
At any time of day, life at Villa Batujimbar is pretty perfect!

October 28th, 2018 - November 9th, 2018“From the dark and cold north we come, 19 swedes of all ages. The gentle smile of Ari and his wonderful staff made us feel like home. After 12 days and 12 nights we return to Sweden, thankful, relaxed, tanned and inspired. Villa Batujimbar is hard to describe in words. It is so rich in emotions that need to be experienced. One has to walk in the garden and discover all the art work while listening to the ocean and the birds. We all agree that this was a perfect vacation. We cannot thank Ari and his staff enough. Every day and at even moment they have given us generous attention and precious care. We are already planing to return.”

August 23rd, 2018 - August 26th, 2018“Wow.. what a stay! My partner David and I were told about this villa from a friend who lived here. We booked to stay at the villa and have our wedding here before seeing it. The photos look amazing, but they were nothing for in comparison to seeing it in person. From the moment we stepped foot in Batujimbar we were completely mesmerized. Never in our wildest dream could we have imagined such an incredible, magical and spiritual place. The ground, the room, the views, the architecture were stunning but the things that impressed us the most were the staff - their kindness, professionalism and incredible way of making us all feel very comfortable. This is a moment are will treasure for the rest of our lives. Words cannot describe the feeling my partner and I and all our party guest experienced throughout our time here. A huge thank you to Villa Batujimbar for making our special day the experience of a lifetime.”
