The westernmost province of Indonesia and the Nusa Tenggara Islands, Bali is a paradise for those seeking the tropical climate and disposition.
From eco bamboo homes to architecturally-designed concept stays, we’ve curated an edit of luxe Airbnbs in Bali to book this spring. Read on for our top picks for Canggu, Seminyak, Ubud and elsewhere.
Just a short drive from Canggu and Seminyak is contemporary Villa Levante, designed by the Bali-based Biombo Architects. With an indoor-outdoor tropical garden, a swimming pool crossing the heart of the villa with a bridge, as well as high ceilings and a sunken lounge, this is a unique concept stay of true luxury.
Crafted by local bamboo artisans with locally-sourced bamboo and reclaimed teak wood roofing, is this thoughtful villa within the Sideman Valley. Lap up views of the rice fields and Mount Agung while enjoying a slow start to the morning over a floating pool breakfast.
Primely positioned in the bustle of Seminyak, this luxury villa is all but a short walk to the area’s restaurants, clubs and beach. Spread across two floors, the modern Airbnb features air conditioning and a private pool – perfect for days spent luxuriating in private.
On the west bank of the River Ayung lies the eco bamboo house Aura House. An ideal location for honeymooning nature seekers, be lulled to sleep by the run of the river below, after a dip in the private pool. Plus, couple massages, yoga sessions and petals baths can be organised in-house if you’re really wanting to amp up the romance.
Nodding to Balinese and Javanese cultures in its ornamental decoration and Joglo house design respectively, Pondok Prapen blends traditional artisanship with contemporary luxury. Surrounded by a tropical garden and fit with a private pool, this villa is an oasis just 10 minutes on foot from Ubud’s centre.
Retreat to the green and blue in this luxe stay featuring an infinity pool overlooking an idyllic rice field. Hike through the idyllic Sacred Hills of Tjampuhan before dining at a local restaurant and catching the sunset over the horizon.
Nestled in the cliff of Bingin Beach is Villa Deeksha where quiet luxury meets sea. With private beachfront balconies, included breakfast and eclectic charm, this Airbnb is the perfect coastal getaway. Just be sure to lock up when you’re out so the monkeys don’t join in on your holiday.
