I spy with my little eye something that starts with a ‘V’…. Villa! Ahhhh Bali. The island of sun, surf, and… VILLAS.
With many choices of accommodation in Bali, it can sometimes pose a challenge to decide where to stay. So I have developed criteria to help me choose the best villa to stay in, and it includes:
- a sizeable pool (I mean really, nobody wants a plunge pool that is just an oversized bathtub),
- a spacious living room area that opens up to the garden,
- a generous sized bedroom and bathroom area,
- a location that is easily accessible to restaurants, bars, and the beach, and
- all at an affordable price
And so if villa is what you seek when you come to Bali, and you want something that ticks all the boxes, then check out Le Jardin Villas in Seminyak, Bali. Why?
Well I’ll tell you why. Firstly, your private pool is huge. I mean literally you could host a pool party for a group of 30 and there’d be enough space for everyone. Secondly, it is walking distance to Seminyak beach, which is home to some fantastic beach bars like Ku De Ta and Potato Head, and well an amazing sunset experience. Thirdly, the villa is super spacious… like 2 storeys spacious, so you’ll never feel claustrophobic.
So if I haven’t convinced you already to check out Le Jardin Villas, keep reading on.

Le Jardin Villas
Le Jardin Villas is a boutique resort set in the heart of Seminyak, Bali. When you roam around the small grounds, you forget that you are in amongst the hustle of what lies outside its walls.
With greenery everywhere you look, Le Jardin Villas adds a tropical charm through its beautiful flaura and fauna, which creates an intimate sanctuary…a perfect way to enjoy your Bali holiday.
It was early in the afternoon…the sun shining bright, and Hubby and I arrive shortly after lunch to Le Jardin Villas. It wasn’t even a few minutes into arriving to the hotel that we were warmly welcomed by the front office staff. Our luggage was quickly unpacked from the car, and we proceeded to check in.
Ahhhh the feeling of being on holiday.
Check in was smooth and we were then escorted to our villa. Walking along the path to the villa, I couldn’t help but feel serenely peaceful by the beautiful greenery that surrounded the resort. And if this feeling of peacefulness wasn’t enough…we are treated to a ceremonial foot bath before we could enter our villa.
Ahhh the double feeling of being on holiday.
And then we step into the villa…walking across steps that sits on top a small fish pond filled with a healthy family of fish.
The 2-Bedroom Villa
We stayed in a 2-storey, 2-bedroom villa, with the master bedroom on the ground level and the second bedroom upstairs.
The ground level houses the living and dining areas, which overlooks the private pool and garden areas. And if you didn’t think the villa could get any more spacious, the private pool is huge – I mean if you are trying to keep fit and healthy while traveling, well it’s a great pool to do laps. And if you just want to relax, it’s also a great pool to cool down.
The master bedroom is huge, with plenty of space for the luggage and all the shopping you’ll do in Bali. And there’s a tree in the room! I don’t mean a potted plant…but an actual tree that the villa has been built around.
The master bedroom leads into the master bathroom, which brings a bit of the outdoors indoors…and it is also…well huge! There’s an oversized bath tub, enough to fit at least 2 people, and a large shower area, a his and hers sink atop a spacious bathroom counter that offers a lot of guest amenities.
Upstairs is the second bedroom, which is also spacious and has its own balcony deck area, which overlooks the pool and garden areas of the villa. The balcony also has a lovely day bed, which is a great space to lounge on and relax.
Eating & Drinking
Daily breakfast is offered with the villa, and you have the option to have breakfast in your villa or their small restaurant – I recommend having it in your villa. There’s nothing better then having breakfast in your PJs, with views over the private pool and garden.
And then in the afternoons, the hotel brings you a small serving of afternoon tea, which is enjoyed in the comforts of your villa. It’s a lovely added touch, especially if you are spending the day relaxing in the villa.
The hotel does offer room service should you need any food. But also walking distance from the resort is a variety of food options, include some fantastic restaurants such as Ku De Ta and Gado Gado.
The hotel is walking distance away from Seminyak beach – about a 10 minutes walk will take you straight to the beach, where you’ll find a number of fantastic beachfront lounge bars.
Seminyak is also a fantastic shopping area, and is also home is an array of spas, cafes, and restaurants – some of the best in Bali.
And Le Jardin Villas offers a shuttle service, which will take you to where you need to go in Seminyak. Just speak to the lovely front office team for more information.
If villa is what you seek, then villa is what you’ll get at Le Jardin Villas. It’s a fantastic spot if you want to be in the heart of Seminyak and be part of all the action in Bali. The villas are spacious, which provides a great option if you are travelling in a small group or if you are a small family. And if you are a couple, well Le Jardin Villas is a fantastic option as well.
A one-bedroom villa starts at approximately A$280 per night, and a two-bedroom starts at approximately A$370… plus or minus depending on the season you travel and availability of the room type.
Le Jardin Villas is another fantastic inspiration from the team at Avilla Hospitality. They are a local Balinese hospitality management company that have created some wonderfully themed hotels and resorts around the island. They are also the wonderful team behind lovely resorts including Alindra Villas and Berry Amour.
