Welcome to Avalon Bali. Villa Avalon is a glorious garden estate in Batubelig just north of Seminyak on Bali's south-western coast.
Designed by internationally famed architect Popo Danes and served by a staff of ten, the 1/2-acre estate comprises the iconic four-bedroom Villa Avalon, the two-bedroom Avalon 2, and the one-bedroom Avalon 3 - each with their own pool and private garden. All three can be rented separately or together in multiple configurations, making Avalon perfect for everyone from a romantic couple to a few families holidaying together or a group of up to 21 friends.
Avalon I's four air-conditioned bedrooms provide sumptuous sleeping space for from 8 to 14 adults in two separate pavilions. Each has a sitting area with TV and DVD player, and top-of-range mattresses dressed with plump pillows, snuggle-into duvets and crisp cotton bed linen.
The two master suites are opulent in size, decor and facilities. Each comprises a large bedroom opening onto a huge shaded terrace on two sides with breakfast area and daybed, and an adjoining sitting room (where the sofas can be set up as two additional beds). Four-poster king-size beds and statement antique tables resting on polished teakwood floors help create a palatial sanctuary. The glamour continues into the air-conditioned bathrooms which feature statement bathtub, impressive twin marble vanities, rain shower enclosure and a huge walk-in air-conditioned wardrobe.
Two air conditioned suites occupy a second sleeping pavilion - each with queen-size bed and sitting area for watching satellite TV. The downstairs suite opens directly onto the garden while the upper room features a spacious terrace with breezy garden-view seating. Both en suite bathrooms feature twin marble basins, rain shower and a walk-in wardrobe. The downstairs bathroom has a second shower and a bathtub in a small courtyard, while the upper level en suite also has a bidet enclosure.
Avalon I comprises three interconnected pavilions fanning out around the swimming pool. From a traditional gateway, steps lead up to the open-sided living room, which also gives access to the upper bedroom suites of the master pavilion and the guest pavilion. Steps lead down to the garden level and the dining hall, guest cloakroom and media room. Behind, across a small courtyard garden, is the kitchen and staff service area. To either side is access to the master and guest suites. Beyond the dining hall, a sail provides shade for the pool deck while at the other end of the pool is the garden joglo.
One of the most beautiful spots on the estate, the upper level living pavilion is an elegant open-sided fan- and sea-breeze-cooled space comprising a large formal seating area, and a games corner with pool table. Below is a formal dining hall with three-metre table seating up to 14 opening onto the pool terrace (where informal alfresco dining under the sail shade is an option). The media room offers an air-conditioned sanctuary for watching a block-buster, dipping into a best-seller, or catching up on emails at the pool-view desk. The poolside antique joglo provides a historic living space in harmony with surrounding nature, and the bedroom terraces provide many quiet corners for contemplation and escape from the crowd.

The Villa Avalon estate is a private residence on a small lane that leads to Canggu's Kayu Putih Beach, with its glistening volcanic sand and awesome waves. W Hotel, Potato Head and the famed bars and restaurants of Seminyak are only a 15-minute walk from the villa. A 15-minute amble inland brings you to Canggu Plaza, with its expat-focused supermarket, gelato stop and choice of eateries. Villa Avalon is in an ideal location, right on Seminyak’s doorstep yet with the peace and quiet of a far more rural setting.
There are several surf schools in Bali, mainly based in and around Kuta and Legian, where young and old(er) can learn to surf or brush up on their skills.
The most exclusive Bali trekking tour promises breath-taking vistas and heart-warming encounters while supporting sustainable social change in the once-forgotten villages of Muntigunung. Elite Havens is a proud partner of Muntigunung Community Social Enterprise.
Explore the scenic rice-field landscape and rural villages by bicycle; a great way to get under the skin of the ‘real’ Bali. Stop off at a local warung (café) to sample some basic Balinese fare or cool off with a cold drink.
If you’ve always dreamed of galloping along a beach or riding through villages bordered by rice fields, now’s your chance. Bali Horse Adventure and Kuda P Stables (both in Pererenan) can arrange horse riding tours, as well as children’s riding lessons and horse-drawn carriage outings.
Sports enthusiasts should head to Bali’s prestigious Canggu Club, with its state-of-the-art gym and tennis and squash courts (most of our villas include complimentary membership, otherwise day membership is available ). Round off your work-outs with some fine international dining, then stock up on gourmet goodies at the nearby Deli.
Visit the mystical Hotel Tugu (Bali’s first museum-hotel) studded with priceless Indonesian artworks and antiques and its award-winning spa offers age-old Eastern therapies. If you are planning a honeymoon, this makes a wonderful first night venue. The hotel’s restaurants offer authentic Chinese and Indonesian fine dining, as well as an international menu, in a variety of unique settings. At the rustic Waroeng Tugu you can taste the traditional Javanese and Balinese cuisine of bygone centuries.
Make a pilgrimage to sacred Pura Tanah Lot, one of Bali’s biggest tourist magnets. Perched high on a craggy, wave-lashed rock, this ancient sea temple is best savoured at sunset; be sure to receive a blessing from the Hindu Priests (and watch out for the monkeys, who are very adept at helping themselves to anything from snacks to sunglasses and even cameras!)
You could eat out at a different restaurant in Seminyak every night - for months - and still not run out of options. Jalan Laksmana (also known as Jalan Oberoi and Jalan Kayu Aya) is Bali’s fashionable ‘Eat Street’, offering plenty of high-end restaurants including Sarong and Nutmegs at Hu’u Bar. La Lucciola Restaurant is great for sunset drinks, as is The Breeze at The Samaya. While Ku De Ta is still the place to see and be seen, two new beach clubs, Cocoon and Potato Head, are classy seaside alternatives. Then there is La Plancha, a rustic beach bar between Double Six and Gado Gado, very popular, good tapas, very reasonably priced drinks, with live music and DJ events. A short taxi ride will bring you to Sardine for elegant seafood, Metis for French Mediterranean cuisine, or to Hog Wild in Bali, famous for barbecue ribs and wicked Martinis. Mid-range dining options here include Wah Wah Gourmet Burger Winebar which specialises in sassy burgers with sexy connotations, and numerous other cheap 'n cheerful options.
Covering 3.8 hectares of tropical parkland in Kuta, Waterbom Bali has 16 water slides (including The Climax with its 360 degree loop) to entertain the young and the young at heart. A great family day out, but go early to beat the crowds.
