Bali Luxury Villas – When people begin planning their trip to Bali, their eyes will experience a sensory overload the moment they lay them on the infinite number of luxury accommodation choices Bali offers.

Nau Villa Ubud boasts a small collection of luxury, traditional Balinese style villas right in the middle of Tegallalang.

Bali Luxury Villas #8 – Amanputri Villa
Traditional Balinese styling with a sprinkle of modern touches means that you’ll feel as though you’re in a tropical paradise the entire time you’re laying on the sunbeds by the pool, watch the days go by as you sip on cocktails and call room service for some of the best food you’ll ever eat in Bali (their food is their strong forte! Think daily breakfast choices of continental, full English/Irish, vegetarian, Asian, and American). The outdoor swimming pool is slightly larger than most villa pools, and slight towering trees offers shade if you want to take a quick break from swimming in the sun. It is literally a minute walk to the beach, and a few minutes more to get your party on at the Ku De Ta Beach Club a few hundred meters away. This is the greatest option for a bit of peace and quite and loud music and parties.

Bali Luxury Villas #9 – DISINI Luxury Spa Villas
Highly commended by guests who have stayed here in the past, it appears that DISINI Luxury Spa Villas can actually do no wrong. Set in an area that is far enough away from the loud music and louder crowds means that the peace and quiet you so look forward to when you hop on the plane to Bali is even better than you imagined. However, it’s not so far away that you will feel burdened having to walk far distances, because you actually won’t need to – you can reach surrounding eateries within a few minutes of strolling. There is one large, stunning outdoor pool available at the property, and the villas are set far apart so that every room has their own privacy. It is clean, modern, and new, and yet the soft Balinese touches keeps it from looking too stiff.
