About Thibault Masson
Thank you for your interest in Bulung Daya. I have achieved making my dream come true, after 3 years of efforts: building a beautiful, timber house, in an enchanting place. I live between Bali, Indonesia, and St Barts, in the French West Indies. When I am not in my homes, I rent them to guests, as I love hosting people. A nice house should never be empty. I like understated luxury, beautiful things that have value in the eyes of the connoisseur. You will benefit from the care of a local team that I have selected. You will live in a house where I have chosen or have had made for the villa. However, the decoration remains subtle and too personalized, so that the house is all about being a great holiday home. I work from my houses, there is always a computer and a wi-fi connection for you to use as well. You will see that these beautiful places are very conductive to being creative, coming with new ideas, as well as spending quality time with friends and family. Click on the button to contact me and to get your holiday started.
Thibault Masson purchased this Villa in 2014
Why Thibault Masson chose Selemadeg
I feel in love, in 2010, with this little corner of the Balinese countryside. The view on empty black sand beaches, alongside green rice paddies, was breathtaking. I tried to make the house as integrated as possible to the landscape and chose a contemporary Indonesian architecture. It took me 3 years to dream, plan and build this villa, from the very shape of its roofs to the location of each building on this gentle slope leading to the beach, as well as the crazy size of the pool, the locally-made contemporary furniture. This house is called Bulung Daya, simply because it is the name for this area by the beach. Giving this name was a way to show the local villages that I wanted to just melt into the landscape. There are no other villas, hotels, houses or buildings of any kind on this beach. This is in the middle of nowhere ! (actually, not quite, as the main Bali road, from Denpasar to Gilimanuk, is only 5 kilometres away). Traditionally, Balinese people do not build houses by the sea, as evil spirits are supposed to live nearby. To protect the villa from them, we have a little house shrine and your staff makes daily offerings twice a day. This is Bali. It is a true luxury to wander alone on the beach and on the little trails among the rice paddies. I am learning Indonesian and my terrible accent makes the local farmers laugh a lot ;-) I have also created this house to a holiday home rental, from the start. As I live between 2 continents, rentals are a great way for me to pay a full-year salary to my staff and to pay for the house maintenance. There are also things to change and to improve, so I am very open to suggestions made by my guests. Bulung Daya is an understated luxury Bali beach retreat and it is waiting for you. Contact me now to book the holiday that you deserve.

Truly amazing in every single way.
Parents and two young children from the Pacific NW have spent 10 days at this wonderful property / location. The villa: timeless design, beautifully decorated with expansive vistas. The pool: the very best one would experience, I'd say hard to match again in future travels. The staff: full complement on site to include an amazing manager - an ambassador of Bali as a true connoisseur of its beauty and rich traditions. The food: cooked to order from the very basic ingredients, lovely in every possible sense. Bali: a gem of this world. We've cleansed our spirit, spent superb family time and left with unforgettable memories. I would give it 7 stars - and - this from an experienced world traveler.
Thank you for your kind words. My team and I are always striving to make our guests as happy as possible. In your case, it was a delight. Having you and your family was so nice because of your curiosity and joyful presence. Thank you for having adopted Bulung Daya as your home during your stay in Bali.
