Batujimbar is one of Bali’s most outstanding private luxury villas – and a magical wedding venue. Originally the home of famed Australian artist Donald Friend, and epitomising ‘Bali style’ architecture, the villa boasts a colourful history and a celebrity guest list featuring monarchs and rock legends. Traditional pavilions house nine bedrooms and multiple living and dining areas full of antiques, artefacts and heirloom paintings. To look after you is a team of staff including villa manager and private chef. A 20-metre pool, gym and tennis court rest within the meticulously designed one-hectare gardens, which have direct access onto Sanur Beach.
Villa Batujimbar accords guests an extraordinary location right on the edge of Sanur Beach: a private gate leads directly from the villa gardens onto the footpath that stretches the length of the white sand swimming beach in both directions. Privacy and peace are the promise of its privileged setting within the exclusive Batujimbar Estate, yet just 150 metres away is the buzz of Jalan Danau Tamblingan, Sanur’s main street, with its throng of restaurants, bars and boutiques. Guests may pick up Bali’s famous Jenggala ceramics (originally created in the villa’s grounds decades ago), enjoy an espresso at Café Batu Jimbar, snack on sushi at Ryoshi, or dance to live music at Three Monkeys – all within a five-minute walk. There’s a good choice of water sports along the beach, a nine-hole golf course within a few kilometres, and the delights of dive- and surf-spot Nusa Lembongan a half-hour boat ride away.
An outstanding experience. The venue is in one of our guests words, "world class", and the service from Ari and the staff matches it perfectly. The villa and surrounding accommodation is quiet, restful and yet the pulse of Bali life is but a short walk away. If the beach is your choice, just step through the gate onto the sand. If a secluded pool is your choice, it is there, and wonderful. If tennis takes your fancy, it's available as well. If just being quiet and reading a book is your choice, there are multiple places in the complex where you can get away and be alone. Service was outstanding - nothing was a problem. This is truly paradise, just don't tell anyone else about it!
Had recently stayed at this awesome place for 2 nights with colleagues during company outing. Rooms reflect true Balinese style and warm hospitality given by the staff and all well arranged by Pak Ari the villa manager.Sanur beach only 1 step ahead overlooking nice view of nusa penida.
Full breakfast was superb,service was top notch.
This place well recommended for group or family stay.
Villa Batujimbar is heaven on earth. The staff went above and beyond to satisfy our needs. The villa itself is a sight to behold, with a beautiful garden, tennis court and true Balinese architecture. The villa sits right on the beach and the gardens and pool are well kept. We stayed in Bali for a few days and barely left the villa as it was so peaceful and relaxing. Not to mention the Chef was amazing and cooked delicious food!
The villa itself is in a great area with plenty of places to shop, dine and explore, highly recommend Villa Batujimbar!
A stunning villa, out of this world service thanks to Ari and his team. We stayed at Batujimbar for 5 days as a family holiday to celebrate my 50th birthday. The stay was perfect, the villa staff were extraordinary and took pains to provide for everything we asked.
A group of 16 people is not easy to keep happy, but the smiling staff at the villa made sure we came back with all smiles. The Chef Noora is outstanding, ask him to stir up a storm with some great Indonesian delicacies. Oh I must mention that the kitchen staff went out of their way to get me Teh Tarik despite not having it in their list of beverages.
The villa is outstanding in terms of its location, infrastructure and facilities. The staff are the best in the world. I am sure we will be back again
Everything about this villa is stunning, the rooms, the pool and the seating areas are so lovely. The staff and so smiley and happy and make you feel so welcome. Nothing is too much trouble. Attention to detail is fantastic. We had such a great time here, we were a group of 8 but could easily fit double if not more with all the facilities. We wanted to stay longer. Thank you.
The estate is amazing and you will never want to leave! We made this possible by sharing the villa with another family. The villa hosts are fantastic and always have your welfare and interests at heart. The chef on site was perfect and very accommodating of children's palates.
We are planning our return visit, and will stay longer next time.
Pure luxury. Villa Batujimbar is perfect for large families, weddings, or big groups of friends who want to rent out a couple of beach-side acres of villa's, pools, and perfect tropical gardens. Is does not get better than this in Sanur for luxurious, large private villa living on the beach.
Strict - no monies can be returned. In the event of the airport being closed when you are due to arrive, we will endeavor to reschedule your villa booking to a mutually beneficial time
