Villa Batujimbar is one of Bali’s most extraordinary residences, with a rich and colourful history, a grand ‘Bali style’ design pedigree, and a celebrity houseguest list that includes ruling monarchs and rock legends. Within its enchanting gardens – situated right by the beach in Sanur’s exclusive Batujimbar Estate – are eight bedrooms, multiple living and dining pavilions, a 20-metre pool, gym and tennis court. There’s direct access onto a glorious white sandy swimming beach from the gardens, and Sanur’s many restaurants and boutiques are a five-minute walk away.

One of the pleasures of a sojourn at Villa Batujimbar is the sheer amount of living space. While there’s plenty of room for a full house to socialise under the same roof, there are also lots of quiet corners for breaking away from the crowd.

The main living pavilion is open to the garden alongside the beach; its soaring alang-alang roof supported by towering coconut columns. Three sides of the pavilion are lined with comfortably upholstered built-in benches and at its centre four traditional Indonesian sofas with curved teakwood frames are set around an elaborately carved coffee table.

A breezy, fan-cooled lounge graces the upper level of the historic Lembu Bale, reached by a pair of stately staircases. With its roof supported by elaborate columns rooted in sandstone plinths carved in the shape of animals and mythical figures, this space is defined by two monumental bovine statues (lembumeans cow in the Indonesian language). Cane and teak colonial-style seating provides the perfect spot to enjoy the sea view.

The Poolside Pavilion’s living area provides yet another space for relaxation, with clusters of handsome seating, an alcove carpeted with thick comfy cushions, and a breakfast table facing the pool. There’s a small kitchenette and a guest shower room tucked out of sight.

Guests have a choice of dining areas. Towards the beach is an enchanting raised dining bale with antique marble table and ten rattan chairs set under a thatched roof. For formal meals, there’s an air-conditioned dining room in the Longhouse, where a 12-seater stunning teakwood table faces sliding glass doors that open onto fish ponds.  Next to the dining room is a huge professionally equipped kitchen and, behind, a staff service kitchen and laundry.

In Villa Batujimbar’s fabulous formal gardens ancient moss-encrusted statues stand sentinel by the 20-metre pool whose stone terrace is lined with sun-loungers and parasols. Seemingly floating above a lotus pond is a large relaxation bale– the perfect spot for afternoon tea while admiring scenes from the Ramayana and Mahabarata carved into the wall behind. From the beachfront baleglorious views across the sea to the sacred Mount Agung and the island of Nusa Penida can be enjoyed; Sanur’s acclaimed sandy beach and sheltered waters lie just beyond the traditional gate in the boundary wall. Elsewhere on the estate are the tennis court and gym, refreshment area and sports shower.

Villa Batujimbar accords guests an extraordinary location right on the edge of Sanur Beach:  a private gate leads directly from the villa gardens onto the footpath that stretches the length of the white sand swimming beach in both directions.  Privacy and peace are the promise of its privileged setting within the exclusive Batujimbar Estate, yet just 150 metres away is the buzz of JalanDanauTamblingan, Sanur’s main street, with its throng of restaurants, bars and boutiques.  Guests may pick up Bali’s famous Jenggala ceramics (originally created in the villa’s grounds decades ago), enjoy an espresso at Café BatuJimbar, snack on sushi at Ryoshi, or dance to live music at Three Monkeys – all within a five-minute walk.  There’s a good choice of water sports along the beach, a nine-hole golf course within a few kilometres, and the delights of dive- and surf-spot Nusa Lembongan a half-hour boat ride away.
