The Ylang Ylang | Gianyar | Bali | Indonesia
10,763.90 Sqft - Gianyar Regency
Nestled between coconut trees and the deserted Indian Ocean beach, Villa Ylang Ylang is the star of the show, an outstanding six-bedroom destination villa. Hidden within a culturally-drenched village along Bali’s south east coast, this contemporary-Asian residence oozes luxury and glamour, with interiors revealing exquisite tastes and sophisticated facilities for discerning guests, including a15-metre pool, gym and home-theater. The secluded beachfront setting overlooking the Badung Strait, together with the villa’s suitability for yoga, spa and indulgent relaxation, further contribute to a retreat of absolute calm and well-being, adhering to Villa Ylang Ylang’s lifestyle concept of ‘passionate serenity’.
Villa Ylang Ylang’s grand entrance features Balinese statues lining a stone-clad wall, and cascading water jugs filling a lily pond. An inner courtyard dominated by calming pools of water leads to the property’s main structure, an impressive two-story living and dining pavilion. Similar to the rest of the property, architectural design here incorporates contemporary Asian elegantly fused with traditional Balinese touches and high-quality materials.
Predominately open-plan and open-sided, the main pavilion contains living and dining areas plus a well-equipped kitchen. An upper gallery reveals rooftop meditation and yoga deck, spa treatment deck and further dining and lounging areas. The villa’s impressive theater room is also housed in this pavilion. The heart of the villa, the main pavilion stands two story’s tall, an impressive building with an 11-metre-high atrium, symmetrically balanced with cream-hued colonnades supporting a soaring, vaulted ceiling. The pavilion looks out across the gardens and pool to the beach.
Mainly open-sided (protected by a combination of floor-to-ceiling wood doors, flowing silk curtains and lengthy bamboo blinds), the pavilion is cooled by refreshing sea breezes and ceiling fans. The living area is furnished with large floor cushions, a deep daybed draped in organza silk and flanking comfy sofas, all featuring rich designer fabrics and signature golden and black theme. At the far end, under a low-ceiling, the formal dining area is dominated by a lacquered wood table accommodating 12 to 14 diners on incredibly comfortable cushioned chairs. As a backdrop to the dining table is a striking glass sculpture and wall-panel of gold-painted mirrored tiles. Separate, and behind closed doors, lies the fully-equipped kitchen.
Landscaped gardens and an attractive 15-metre swimming pool and stone deck spread out towards the ocean from this central building, flanked by a pair of symmetrical, single-story wings, incorporating six en suite bedrooms. Revealed within the immaculate lawns are two bales (gazebos) for dining and relaxation and a gym with infrared sauna. Sun-lit and breezy during the daytime, the villa glows with sophistication after dark.
Conceived in perfect symbiosis with its natural surroundings, Villa Ylang Ylang maintains a philosophy of living life with passion and serenity. Offering yoga and spa treatments, fresh, wholesome food, infrared sauna and Balinese healing, this therapeutic spot unsurprisingly helps balance mind, body and soul.
The extensive in-house spa menu features local and Indonesian treatments such as Balinese massage, mandi lulur and cream bath, plus facials, pedicures and manicures. Spa treatments administered by outside spa providers can be enjoyed on the rooftop massage deck on two massage beds, within guestrooms and beachfront gazebo, or any other suitable outdoor setting. Staff can arrange appointments in advance.
The powerful spiritual vibe and glorious setting are also conducive to yoga and meditation. The owners have years of expertise in this field, gathering a discerning list of renowned yoga instructors and visiting yoga masters for private villa sessions. Yoga mats are provided, as is a delightful choice of peaceful places to practice, such as the river deck or rooftop yoga deck at dawn or sunset. Additionally, traditional Balinese healers can visit the villa for personalized health and cleansing ceremonies.
Located within the gym and overlooking the sea, the infrared sauna is a rejuvenating marvel. Health-giving benefits are extraordinary: a twenty-minute infrared session helps eliminate toxins, increase circulation, boost the immune system and promote weight loss and well-being.?Even the volcanic black sands on the beach offer therapeutic qualities – rich in minerals, locals are known to bury themselves in the sand here to maximize their healing properties!
Exclusive use of the whole villa and listed services and facilities, 9 staff including villa manager, accomplished chef, housekeeping, gardeners and security, spa deck, theater room, 2 bales (gazebos), swimming pool and 2 plunge pools and unlimited WIFI.

With Villa Ylang Ylang’s secluded location, the Villa’s chef is pivotal to guest enjoyment. Fortunately, resident chef Kadek is extremely talented; not only can she produce gourmet local specialties, Asian, European and fusion dishes, but on a fine-dining level you’d expect to find in an up market hotel.
Mealtimes here are an occasion; staff are well-versed in hosting guests ranging from families to VIPs, from buffets to elaborate sit-down dinners. In addition the villa’s multiple dining areas provide numerous possibilities, from poolside barbecues to three-course formal dinners at an exquisitely-set table.
Emphasis is on delicious, freshly-made and healthy food and Kadek can accommodate special diets such as Detox and South Beach, as well as other dietary requests. Even the beverages are discerning, with three coffee makers, 40 varieties of teas, a superb selection of fine wines and cosmopolitan cocktails.
The kitchen can provide breakfast, lunch and dinner. Extensive suggestion menus are available, including vegetarian and children’s, but if alternative options are required, the chef and assistant are flexible and more than happy to discuss. Guests are requested to order at least one day in advance so that staff can provision and prepare in good time.
While the villa has large food preparation areas and is highly capable, it cannot operate on the same basis as a restaurant, accepting individual orders for every guest. It is appreciated if groups select the same dish or order shared dishes.
FOOD & BEVERAGES
The first morning’s breakfast is complimentary, so too is daily mineral water, coffee, tea and afternoon tea (with home-made cakes). All other food and beverage items are charged at cost price, plus an additional 20% service charge. Guests are requested to provide cash in advance; staff will then purchase the goods and keep receipts for reference. Costs are tallied up at the end of the stay, but can be checked on a day-to-day basis if preferred.
