Guest Reviews for villa Bulung Daya
“It is a dangerous place :). You might fall in love with it so much that all planned activities, like visiting places around, going for a dinner to another place etc will be forgotten at the very minute you will arrive at the villa. ”Laisvunas, Lithuania
“This is a very special place. Probably not for those of you who want to enjoy Bali nightlife or try a different restaurant each night, Bulung Daya is remote and unique, but only a 2 hour drive from the airport. The villa has been very carefully designed to make the most of its fabulous location perched on top of a promontory overlooking two deserted black sand beaches over which the two spacious and beautifully appointed double bedrooms look”Geoff, Hong Kong
“We arrived safely home yesterday afternoon and are already missing Bali – the sights, the weather, the culture, the food. Thank you for everything – for opening up your homes to us and showing us a great time and for being such a great host.”Bill & Ann, USA
“We are still talking about our wonderful visit at your villa in Bali last month. It was the highlight of our Asian trip! Thank you for arranging such an extraordinary stay with you. Your property is paradise and we had a fabulous time. ”John, USA
Lifelong Memories in an Enchanting Landscape
Imagine yourself waking up in 1 of the 2 bedrooms of the villa. From your bed, you notice that the tide is on the ebb. Along the shoreline, the black volcanic sand is shining like a mirror in the morning sun.
You slide open the glass doors. The sound of the waves crashing at the foot of the nearby cliff is like an invitation for you to walk barefoot on the deck.
You turn slightly around the house and contemplate the rice paddies flowing down the hills like a grassy waterfall, just 20 feet away from you. In the background, little clouds cling to the summit of extinct volcano Mount Batukaru.
No other buildings around, just your holiday home. The maid, called Made, sees you, smiles at you, and asks you whether you are ready for breakfast. You go and get your spouse, who had settled down into the office to check his emails. Time also to wake up your teenagers who are sleeping in the second house. Will you all go for a stroll on the beach or among the rice paddies after breakfast? This will be a good discussion topic around the family table. Another great is starting at Bulung Daya.
LUXURY HIDEAWAY VILLA WITH INDONESIAN TWIST
Bulung Daya has 2 main guest houses, along with several service and entertainment spaces.
The 2 main wood buildings stand on the same level. They were finished in December 2013. I used beautiful Indonesian wood types, black Bali lava stone, white Javanese stones and more modern building materials.
You can turn on the air conditioning in every room or let the big glass doors open to look at the beach and at the rice paddies. When everything is closed, the sound of the waves is very faint, which allows you to sleep peacefully.
1ST HOUSE: BEDROOM, BATH, HOME OFFICE
In the first house, you can find a large bedroom, a bathroom and a home office.
In the vast bedroom, a king size bed welcomes your most romantic nights. All the furniture has been made to measure in Bali: the bed headboard, the bed with its decorative mosquito net, the built-in bedroom cabinets, the lamps that give a charming glow to the room in the evening.
The en-suite home office is a very well-appointed room that you can use to think, write or work: a computer, wi-fi, plugs, a desk, a sofa, a TV and an espresso machine. This home office has a view on the beach, to help kickstart your creativity.
The bathroom has 2 stone sinks set in a piece of furniture created by Warisan, the acclaimed Bali high end designer, a shower with a view on the sea, walk-in clothes cabinets, and a separate toilet area. The bathroom boasts a splendid view on the nearby cliff.
The Master Suite also offers a very romantic sport, with a Bali lava stone bathtub. Located outside, a few feet from the bathroom, it is also very private, as it out of the view of anyone else at the villa.
2ND HOUSE : BEDROOM, BATH, DINING AND LIVING ROOM
Between the 2 timber houses lies a decorative, shallow pond, set in black lava stone.
The second house holds the second bedroom, a bathroom and the dining / living room.
This second bedroom is a bit smaller, but it has a double view on the the beach and the rice fields. The furniture is also made to measure in Bali: the big contemporary bed with its romantic decorative mosquito net, the bed headboard which doubles on the other side a clothing cabinet for 2
The other side of the bed head board is a custom-made wall closet conveniently located between the bedroom and the bathroom. The latter boasts 2 spectacular Bali stone sinks, a big shower for 2 overlooking the rice paddies and a separate toilet area.
The living and dining room is a very welcoming place: a huge table for meals, a lounge area and a stunning bookshelf that we imagined and got built locally. The table and the chairs are by Reynaldo Zapp, a Brazilian designer living in Bali.
The living room is great to have meals with your family or with friends that you have invited for lunch, to have coffee or cocktails in the comfortably large sofas or to discuss your travel plans with the villa manager. Wi-fi is available here, just like in every other room of the villa.
33 METRES LONG INFINITY POOL OVERLOOKING THE SEA
Below the 2 houses, at first hidden by the gentle slope leading to the beach, lies the 33 metres long pool. Yes, it is a bit crazy to have a pool that is longer than those in most Bali hotels. However, as the sea in Bali can be quite dangerous, it is quite rational to swim in a welcoming pool. The most avid swimmers in the house may want to race other other, while the others are sipping a cocktail on the 6 chaises longues.
The pool is also very romantic at sunset: You can sit on the sunken bench to watch the clouds change colours, from white to orange.
POOL HOUSE : GYM, MASSAGE, BATH, CINEMA, REST BED
The pool house is located on the same level as the pool, under the second house. You can find there a gym, a massage table, a home theater, a rest bed and a bathroom.
The pool house is very convenient when you decide to stay home and enjoy the villa. Imagine that two of you are soaking up in the sun by the pool, while you are working out in the gym and while your husband is “thinking” with his eyes closed in the large sofa. A holiday together, where everyone has time for themselves!
You can practice yoga and low-impact moves on the shock-absorbing floor of the gym. There is also 1 full-body workout exercise machine, 2 cardio-training machines, and 1 massage table. The villa manager can get you a masseur or a masseuse very easily.
The rest bed is in a separate room where you can cool down a bit after the gym or a swim. It has a sofa-bed, a table, a mini-fridge and fresh beverages left for you by the staff. In the nearby bathroom, there is everything you need to get changed on the spot (shower, sink, toilet).
The house also has a movie room, with a silver screen, a projector, comfy sofas and about 200 DVDs.
A short, 15 metres long, path on a gentle slope leads you right to the black sand beach. There, you will most certainly be alone, but for local children who come to play here in the late afternoon. Wander around the beach, discover the lovely small temple of the royal Kerambitan family, nestled near a cliff. Walk here and there, see Balinese cows grazing under the coconut trees, between beach and rice fields. This is the Bali we are all dreaming about!

Villa Features & Services
Location: Wild Beach near the village of Antap, in West Bali
On the Bali map below, the big red dot indicated the location of Bulung Daya. As you can see, it is relatively far from the urbanised areas of Kuta – Seminyak (about 45 kilometres – 27 miles), yet very accessible as it is only 5 kilometres away from the main Bali road (in yellow on the map). The travel time from Denpasar is around 1.5 hour.
However, the main and the best Bali road, the one that goes from Denpasar to Gilimanuk, is only 5 kilometres away. So, you can reach a lot of places from the villa during half-day trips (e.g. Balian surf beach, Belimbing rice paddies or full-day trips (e.g. Ubud, Seminayk, Jatiluwih).
Do not stress about transportations, as included in the villa rental price are:
- Airport Pickup / Return (or from/ to any place in Bali under a 1-hour drive from the villa)
- Complimentary Car Rental with Chauffeur (8 hours a day)
- Half-day and full-day trips ( (8 hours a day)
- Masseurs, Balinese musicians and other services can come to the villa at your request. Just ask your butler.
Antap is a farming village, where most locals work in the surrounding rice paddies. Local traditions are very much alive and the villagers hold religious Hindu ceremonies on a regular basis.
Feel free to say hello to the farmers and fishermen around the villa, or even to watch a traditional ceremony in the village (Just ask the villa manager when the next ceremony is and whether non-village people can come along).
Immediately around the villa (we are right between the beach and rice paddies)
Strolling on the black sand beach
Strolling among the rice paddies
Mountain biking on the country side roads (great views on the rice fields and on the volcanoes – I have 2 mountain bikes, can be used free of charge)
Fishing in the sea (Fishing rod available, one of my staff will show you the good spots)
Less than 30 minutes away:
Driving to Belimbing: Beautiful views on rolling rice paddies, simple but good restaurant, local Hindu temple with mischievous monkeys, very nice waterfall
See my blog post: http://www.realbali.com/
Driving to Balian: A simple, but authentic spot where surfers gather. A few bars, nice waves. Nothing fancy, but a pretty good idea of what Bali was like for surfers 20 years ago
1.5 hour to 2 hours away:
Ubud: Cultural hot spot of Bali, nice temples, great yoga classes, good restaurants, Monkey Forest. Great place to learn about the Bali Hindu culture. A bit crowded in the middle of the day. Go there early morning and see the morning market, very colorful.
Seminyak: The Balinese riviera, with trendy bars and restaurants. See my choice of high end restaurants with great food, great architecture and locations that do not require you to ender the crazy traffic of the Kuta area : http://www.realbali.com/
Bretan Lake: Out of the main tourist crowds: Drive up the slopes of Mount Batukaru, see waterfalls, amazing views on 3 beautiful lakes from the ridge of a volcano (no need to walk), iconic Balinese temple on the lake). Longer ride, but worth it if you want to see a Bali that it the opposite of the Kuta / Seminyak area.
These are the rates for Villa Bulung Daya in a 2-bedroom configuration for 4 people.
Minimum stay: 3 nights
(Prices do not include the Indonesian 10% Service Tax & my staff’s 5% Service Charge)
