Private Luxury Bali Villa Large Pool, book 4 to 7 Bedrooms, near Seminyak Beach
- english, Indonesian
We first came to Bali in 1991 on a reluctant stop over, whilst on tour with Barking Gecko Theatre. Bali turned out to be an unexpected surprise! After that we just kept coming back. In 2007 we had the opportunity to move to Bali, with Lou taking a teaching position and Grahame finally having the opportunity to build our dream Bali home. In the process we found Akasa Villa which needed significant renovation and become our temporary home while we built Firefly Villa. When our home was finally built we decided to share beautiful Bali Akasa Villa with visitors to the island giving them the opportunity to rent it short term. Originally from Australia, we have been married for more than 30 year and have 2 sons. Our first son is already grown up, lives in Sydney and is happily married, the second son goes to school in Bali. Previously Lou was a successful Theatre Set and Costume Designer. Grahame was a highly acclaimed Theatre Director and writer. Why did we move to Bali? We’d reached the peak in our respective careers, so it was time for a new adventure, a new life and a new challenge. So this seemed to be the perfect opportunity to move with our 6 year old son to Bali to immerse themselves into a new culture and experience some of the delights this tropical island has to offer. Our aim is that our guests are able to do the same. Grahame and Lou

Why Ginger chose Kuta
Bali Akasa Villa enjoys a beautiful setting, with a lush, mature tropical garden around a beautiful swimming pool. Large, open verandahs provide the perfect outdoor living space as well as respite from the sultry climate. Bali is being over-run by huge, characterless developments. They could be anywhere in terms of their style and feel as they are so neutral that you could be mistaken for thinking you were in almost any western city. At the same time, what most people really love about coming to Bali is that it’s like a tropical paradise with beautiful gardens, natural settings and enchanting traditions. When you leave you feel refreshed and inspired. Akasa Villa has all of this. You will not find anything else like it in Seminyak. A beautiful villa with it’s stunning alang-alang roof which enhances the natural setting of the enchanting tropical garden and large kidney shaped swimming pool. A villa of this size and in this style is a rare gem in Seminyak. Then furnished with all modern amenities and wonderful staff make the ingredients for a wonderful and relaxing holiday.
What makes this Villa unique
Close to the attractions of Seminyak, Legian and Kuta, Akasa Villa is away from from the party scene; a place to recover, refresh, and prepare for the adventures the next day will bring. The staff at Akasa Villa can attend to most of your needs, and you may simply choose to enjoy your holiday within the Villa compound. In villa spa treatments are available, with a custom built massage table. The villa can accommodate a group of friends or family members, and still provide space from each other. It is great for children and families. The Bungalow can be set up as an entertainment TV room when not used as a bedroom. Secure, private and convenient, Akasa Villa is perfect holiday accommodation in an ideal location and setting. The restaurant scene in Bali is booming, with wonderful eating options emerging. Seminyak is at its epicentre. Names such as Mama San, Republik 45l, Metis, Sardine, Chez Gado Gado, Warisan and Sarong are a few of the memorable fine dining options which are close to the AkasaVilla. These are supplemented by an exciting mix of casual venues which mix entertainment, great cocktails and a vibrant social scene. These include places such a Potato Head, Ku De Ta, Motel Mexicola, Frankenstein's Laboratory, Laca Laca, Zibiru, Ginger Moon, and Cubana. In addition to that, Seminyak is a wonderful place to shop, visit the spas and laze at the beach. And they are all virtually right at your doorstep when you stay at Akasa Villa.

Beautiful, clean, relaxing
We had an amazing time at Bali Akasa Villa. The place is beautiful, clean, with all amenities we required for our families. The staff was very helpful and friendly, and made us feel very welcomed. Would deifinitely stay there again if we return to Bali!
"The villas were very clean with an outdoors style bathroom in some of the ground villas and one with a bath. They were very roomy with safes in each room and the swimming pool was the central focus. The dining table off the kitchen area overlooked the pool and seated us all comfortably. There was a large screened TV and sound system in that area. There were also comfortable settees and lounging chairs in the gazebo area again overlooking the pool The staff were efficient, attentive and very friendly and courteous and at least 3 of the staff worked during the day and one staff member remained during the night. Breakfasts were cooked for us each morning by the staff and they cooked a traditional evening meal which we paid for. If we wanted trips anywhere the staff would discuss, recommend, give an approximate costing and arrange the transport from the drivers' based on a hundred metres down the lane. We felt safe and relaxed. It was very sad to leave such a wonderful villa."
We will return to this villa as soon as possible.
Beautiful villa, excellent service
The villa is excellently set up, the location was a little out of the way but very quiet and an easy taxi ride to anywhere you would like to go.
We had 10 people (aged 20-61) stay very comfortably and the 24 hour staff met every need we could have possibly had and were extremely friendly, constantly working in the background to ensure everything was perfect.
The pool and day beds were fantastic to relax on and the rooms and ensuites exceeded all of our expectations
We regularly had incredible and very well priced massages and facials organised by the villa, the staff even organised delivered takeaway food for those lazy nights.
we would highly recommend to any largish group.
80th Birthday Celebrations
Fantastic location and set up for a family get together for my mums 80th birthday. Guests ranged from early 20's to 80's . The venue catered perfectly , group areas , secluded spots and sunny lounge beds by the pool . The staff were accomodating in all our requests from booking taxis to organising the catering for the party dinner held at the villa. Everyone was extremely happy with their stay and I would highly recommend for groups of friends or family gatherings , couldn't praise the staff more highly for their outstanding services provided .
The photos do not lie
Akasa Villa is everything in person that the photos show on the website. The grounds are enclosed and private. The well kept gardens that surround the pool and outer edges of the perimeter are lush, tropical and make you feel like your defiantly on holidays! Each room was beautifully presented with clean linen, air conditioned, comfortable beds and had private bathrooms. The way this villa is run means that the staff are very discrete in giving you privacy, but you knew in the background they were looking after every requirement. Each day we were cooked a beautiful breakfast and then during our day trips we would come back and everything had been cleaned, moped, folded, tidied.....It was honestly like magic unseen fairies were looking after us. The staff arranged transport for us, gave advise, met requests and even did the laundry for one of our guests.....and apparently it came back cleaner than when he packed it for the holiday! I would like to thank the staff for making our trip an amazing holiday that we will remember for years to come. On behalf of our group I would have no reservation on recommending this beautiful villa.
While not brand spanking new, the villa is lovely and the staff have just the right balance of being available and not being intrusive. Everything worked and there were no issues with the facilities.
Made and Geday were both wonderful and took great care of us. The villa is somewhat distant from the main action of Seminyak. This has its benefits. It was VERY quiet. No traffic noise, loud music, neighbour noise, or anything to intrude on the peacefulness. You can hear the birds and insects throughout the day and night. This shouldn't be underestimated. It's is however a long walk to the main Seminyak action. It's only a short cab ride, so not too much of a drama. Would definitely stay there again.
Thanks for your lovely review and tips for others. You highlight the location in your review and we do think that Akasa Villa is ideally located for those who want to be close, but not right in the middle of all the action of Seminyak. And of course the bonus of your "very own" villa. is the wonderful staff to help you. We look forward to seeing you next time you are in Bali. Best wishes, Lou
