Seminyak’s brightest new star, The Layar features distinctive pitched roofs that taper dramatically to the ground like the triangular rigging of traditional fishing boats – hence the nautically inspired name (Layar is Indonesian for sails). These steeply sloping geometric roof planes combine with curved and angled walls to create exciting light-filled split-level open spaces that flow seamlessly across the pool into the garden. This is truly open-plan tropical living at its best!
The Layar is run as a boutique hotel, with 150-staff taking care of 23 villas – each set in its very own private garden in an elevated setting that creates a sense of openness and space that’s rare in this most popular of Bali’s resort areas. Villa 5 is the largest of The Layar villas; a magnificent four-bedroom residence designed for entertaining with spacious living and dining areas, a mezzanine media room, and a dining deck with barbecue station by the sail-shaped swimming pool. Within the main building are three guest bedrooms – each with garden views and elegant bathrooms. The master bedroom suite resides in complete privacy beyond the pool. Guests enjoy the attentions of their own butler to complement the resort’s large professional team, and also have their own spa room as well as a garden jacuzzi. While the villa has its own well-equipped kitchen (complete with wine fridge), there’s an excellent room service menu, and guests can also book a chef for a sumptuous poolside seafood barbecue or opt to dine at the fabulous Italian Restaurant, Settimo Cielo perched at the front of the estate.
With its dynamic design, five-star service and stand-out location, the Layar will appeal to design-savvy families and groups of friends who appreciate the privacy and luxury of their own villa while relishing the accessibility of Bali’s best restaurants, bars, shops and surf breaks just a short stroll away.
All of our villas come with the services of our guest relations manager who will be able to assist with massages/spa treatments, tours and travel, car or scooter hire and all general advice and information needed to ensure your vacation is a memorable experience.

Stayed in the three bedroom villa. Would highly recommend. Staff very helpful and catered to every need. Breakfast was fantastic, plenty of options and again, staff very helpful. Whilst there, arranged a tailor to visit, everything handled very smoothly.
It was the second time we have had the pleasure of experiencing this awesome place - and it remains as luxurious; friendly and relaxing as it was the first time around. Perfect for a relaxing family getaway.
Great location, wonderful staff, amazing food and villa. Only thing I could nitpick about would be the cost of “extras” such as baby monitor and other baby equipment. It wasn’t fair that they charged us for the use of a high chair so we just went without. Other than that I couldn’t fault
We stayed at this lovely property in March 2018 as part of our 2018 trip to Bali. We were joined by another two couples, so we shared a three bedroom villa. 'Wow' was was the word we entered the courtyard. The pool was beautiful, very large with a spa - very inviting and sparkling clean. Off the pool was a grassed area and large deck area. The living area was also large and had every conceivable luxury anyone could ask for. All three bedrooms were over-sized with their own bathroom and courtyard. The 'main bedroom' which was the one we were in, was one of the biggest rooms I have ever seen with an equally large inside/outside bathroom, spa bath and shower. The villa was located not too far off Eat Street and not too far from the beach. The property provides the service of a shuttle to the Seminyak area, which we used a few times. Breakfasts were included and these were served in their restaurant up the front of the property. The food was top class and made to order. Coffee was great too. There is no gym on the premises but one 'around the corner'. This is a large gym, (a little more than around the corner) but we did use it and it was excellent with a large lap pool and classes. So all in all, we would definitely recommend The Layar to anyone seeking a bit of serenity and luxury.
In a great location, close to amazing shops and restaurants and spas, The Layar designer villas live up to their tag, the spaces are elegant and well thought out, a little different than your normal villa. large pools, spacious bedrooms and complete kitchens along with raised living and dining spaces gives you enough space to really spread out and enjoy yourself. Having Settimo Cielo right out front is also a bonus, amazing breakfasts and perfect for an evening in.
Truly designer villas as the name suggests. We had a 2 bedroom villa and a 1 bedroom villa. The pool and gardens are sensational and on large grounds, the villas are comfortable and clean. Could use a little more tlc in the maintenance department but nothing different from other 6 year old properties etc. These villas are definitely a stand out. Staff are very friendly and professional. We thought they were very good value for the experience. Would happily recommend and stay again.
Amazing Service! Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The Layar! Our first night we landed late at the airport at about 10pm, we were picked up by the hotel and greeted with friendly service. We checked in about 11pm, and was hungry, and nothing was open accept Boss Burgers in Seminyak which closed at 1am. Normally they have delivery service but were short staffed, we planned on walking out but it started to rain. The Hotel staff offered to go pick up our burgers and take it back to us at no additional cost, this was amazing so thank-you!
Tailored service to suit, every morning for 3 nights we go breakfast served in the privacy of our own villas, and they even provided us with a unicorn for the pool!
The rooms are well thought out architecturally, clean and vibrant. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, thank-you guys!
Will be back!!
In the very rare event of the airport being closed when you are due to arrive, we will endeavour to reschedule your villa booking to a mutually beneficial time.
