Looking for the best location in Bali? Want to stay close to the action but still maintain privacy and sleep sound at night? Akara Villas 1 has you covered, big time.
Located just off hip Jalan Petitenget, Akara Villas 1 offers the perfect home base for exploring Bali’s best dining and beach scene. Located within the exclusive Akara Villas estate, Akara Villas 1 sits within a short walk of Potato Head beach club and W Bali Retreat. Petitenget Beach is less than 10 minutes away on foot.
To make logistics run that much smoother, Akara Villas also offers complimentary shuttle service within the Seminyak area.
Despite being located in the heart of the action, Akara Villas 1 is incredibly quiet and there’s a great sense of privacy and security – the property provides 24-hour security.
Akara Villas 1’s living and dining room overlooks the pool through glass doors. If you need a break from the elements, the room can be closed off for air-conditioned comfort. This is a rare treat in Bali, where many villas have living areas with a “missing wall” layout.
Overall, the villa is incredibly well maintained – even the magazines fanned out on the coffee table are all current issues of international publications. As a coffee lover, I can’t help but swoon over the bright red Saeco coffee maker perched in the kitchen.
Out of all the villas in the Akara complex, Akara Villas 1’s pool is positioned in a way that doesn’t receive direct sun light for a good portion of the day. I would see this rather as a plus than a minus – we all know what too much sun can do to your skin!
The pool features a few wide steps, meaning kids looking to enjoy the pool are not plunged straight to the deep end. A pool fence can also be arranged against a small fee.
Akara Villas 1 has two bedrooms which can sleep up to four adults and two children. The rooms have a stylish décor rendered in white and cream hues.
The master bedroom has a dreamy king-sized canopy bed and a luxurious bathroom with a bathtub and a separate indoor/outdoor shower.
The guest bedroom has two single beds, which can be converted into a king if needed. The ensuite bathroom has an exotic semi-outdoor rainfall shower.
Again, we need to take a moment here to simply appreciate just how quiet this villa is at night. Add to that the plush King Koil bedding and what you have is the recipe for the best sleep of your life.
What makes staying in Akara Villas 1 extra special is the amazing staff.
Villa manager Purna and his team will go above and beyond to make your stay in Bali unforgettable. Nothing is too much trouble, and you really start feeling like part of the Akara Villas family. That being said, the team is very professional and maintains just the right amount of distance, meaning you have a relaxing sense of privacy, but help is never too far away should you need it.
Akara Villas 1’s staff is incredibly knowledgeable about the surrounding area and Bali by large. They can also pick up some yummy grub from any of the surrounding restaurants for you – we love Biku located just across the street. The nightly rates also include a great daily breakfast, welcome drinks and tropical fruit basket on arrival.
Stellar location, impeccable design and five-star service… It’s really no wonder many guests keep returning to Akara Villas year after year.
After experiencing the magic first-hand, I might just join them.
