One Bedroom Villas

At each of The Layar’s four one-bedroom villas, steps to the elevated garden follow the curve of the swimming pool to the open living and dining area spread out below the wing of the dramatically sloping ironwood-shingle roof. To one side of the living area lies the triangular galley kitchen, while to the other, angled under the second roof wing, is the spacious bedroom and its ensuite garden bathroom.

Careful thought has been given to the villa’s romantic living area, resulting in a wonderful sense of space, openness and flow that couples will appreciate. With such a splendid selection of settings to chose from, relaxation comes easy, day or night. Drift between the custom-designed teakwood sofa facing the entertainment centre, the sun-loungers reclining on the pool deck, the tiered shallow section of the pool just beyond the living area, or even the stone bathtub gracing the courtyard garden.

Honeymooners and couples will love the design of this large, light-filled king-sized bedroom with its stylish seating area, window onto the courtyard and sliding doors to the pool deck. There’s no scrimping on space in the garden bathroom either – an elegant expanse of Palimanan stone with foliage-fringed shower, elongated counter with twin basis, and – in the adjacent white-pebbled courtyard – a decadently statuesque stone bathtub.


Two Bedroom Villas

Accommodation is spread across multiple levels under angled, overlapping roofs in each of the seven spacious two-bedroom villas at The Layar. The open living and dining space sweeps from the edge of the pool across to the large, partly recessed kitchen and, via open-tread stairs, up to the mezzanine media room. Oriented for quiet seclusion, the master and guest bedroom suites are on separate sides of this vast living area, their ensuite bathrooms facing small private gardens. Each villa occupies up to 600sqm of well-screened grounds featuring a Bengkirai-wood sun deck with jacuzzi fronting a large curved pool, and – in some villas – a sunken pergola with alfresco seating.

At the heart of The Layar’s two-bedroom villas is the two-tiered, light-flooded living area, individually defined by angled roofs and curved walls. Handsome sofas, chairs and dining tables cluster on the acid-washed marble floors that flow unrestricted from the pool edge to a verdant courtyard overlooked by the open-plan and very well-equipped kitchen (including wine fridge and bar counter). The mezzanine media room appears to float above the living area, its curved bank of built-in seating gazing towards the pool.

The garden provides further space for relaxation and socialising. Sun loungers stretch out on the deck, while a jacuzzi and tiered shallow steps in the pool offer tempting spots for cooling-off.

Behind a curved wall of India stone is the spacious king-sized master bedroom with sliding doors onto either a small deck or private corner of the garden. The glamorous bathroom is fitted with a large bathtub, shower and double basins, and features a private garden. The guest bedroom, also king-sized, is just as enticing and secluded, with garden view and an equally gorgeous ensuite bathroom.


Three Bedroom Villas

The 11 three-bedroom Layar villas all feature striking changes of floor level to create interest and define spaces. The huge open living and dining room fans out from a raised platform alongside the kitchen, widening to the garden and pool area at the front. Secluded on separate sides of this vast living area, the three bedroom suites each enjoy complete privacy and outdoor space in the form of a deck, terrace or bathroom garden. Between villa and garden is a large swimming pool with sun deck and, in most villas, a jacuzzi.

A light-flooded living and dining area, defined by dramatic overlapping roofs and a mix of angled and curved walls forms the heart of the villa. Handsome furniture rests on the acid-washed marble floors that flow unrestricted from the edge of the pool to a raised area of polished Merbau-wood opening onto a very well equipped kitchen. Four of the villas have a mezzanine level media room; in the others the free-flowing living space is so large, it’s not missed.

Edging right into the living area for toe-dipping convenience is the jacuzzi (available in all but one of the three bedroom villas) and shallow section of the swimming pool. Another social space is created by the pool deck and garden with sun-loungers and sunset views.

The design intelligence so noticeable in The Layar creates an unprecedented sense of privacy for all three king-sized bedrooms, which lie off the main living area behind statement walls of stone or via well-screened entrances set at an angle or on different levels. The spacious master bedroom enjoys a glamorous bathroom with large bathtub, shower, double basins and a private garden. The guest bedrooms are just as enticing and secluded, with equally gorgeous indoor/outdoor bathrooms, many also featuring their own private garden areas.


Four Bedroom Villas

At The Layar’s one four-bedroom villa, stone slabs across a lily pond lead into an open-plan living room that flows around contoured and angled walls towards the garden. A few steps up is a mezzanine media room where a glazed wall looks down over the living area; tucked below is a guest bedroom. At one end of the living space is a raised dining area, beyond which is a breakfast bar and the fitted kitchen. At the opposite end is a sitting area open to the garden. A corridor leads to a guest cloakroom and second guest bedroom, while, discreetly tucked behind another feature wall is a third guestroom with doors to the garden.

Across the lawn is a large swimming pool with a separate jacuzzi at one end and a spa with massage room and shower at the other. Beyond the Bengkirai-wood pool deck, and very privately screened behind another curved wall, is the master bedroom suite.

The large split-level living room provides a perfect balance of sociable open-plan entertainment space and quiet get-away-from-it-all corners. On a raised platform of polished Merbau wood, a dining table for eight is separated from the well-equipped kitchen by a bar counter. On the lower level, sofas are arranged around a coffee table overlooking the garden and pool. Above is a mezzanine media room where sensually curved seating runs the full length of one wall.

There’s more luscious lounging space in the garden, with oversized sunbeds languishing on the lawn and sun loungers and a circular love seat set on the pool deck. Submerged seating in the jacuzzi and shallow wings flanking the pool provide the perfect spots to stretch out and cool down. For sunset cocktails and alfresco meals there’s a dining table for six set before a barbecue cooking station.

A curved display wall creates an imposing backdrop to the master suite’s king-sized leather-and-wood bed which faces a bank of wardrobes and a desk set below a wall-mounted TV. A corner banquette looks onto a small garden open to the bathroom, where there’s a terrazzo bathtub, vanity with twin basins, shower enclosure and second alfresco shower.

Discreetly tucked off the living room in the main villa are the three large, air-conditioned, king-sized guest bedrooms, each with a unique charm. One is multi-level, with the bed on a raised Merbau-wood platform facing the pool, and a dressing area and large garden bathroom (with twin basins, indoor and outdoor showers and a bathtub) on the lower level. The two other bedrooms – one with a king, the other with twin beds – look onto their own corner gardens and also have indoor/outdoor bathrooms with bathtub, shower enclosure, and twin basins.


The Layar Layout

For a faultless fusion of inspired architecture and easy tropical living, The Layar is in a class of its own. This iconic enclave in the heart of Seminyak comprises 23 villas, each set in its own very private garden sanctuary fanning out from a central colonnade of mature flowering trees. An elevated setting means the villas’ front boundary walls all but disappear, creating a sense of openness and space that’s rare in this most popular of Bali’s resort areas. The Layar offers a choice of one-, two-, three- and four-bedroom villas, each with its own distinctive design and all with an uncurbed feeling of space and openness. The one-bedroom villas are so romantic, yet even the largest four-bedroom villa has intimate, away-from-it-all corners.

The Layar Staff

One of the greatest advantages of staying in a villa is the service provided by dedicated staff. The Layar has over 80 staff, professionally trained and determined to do their utmost to please with their warm and friendly Balinese hospitality. Pleasing to those who treasure their privacy, staff only appear when you need them; The Layar as a boutique resort is complete with its highly acclaimed restaurant, as well as in-villa dining and events– so staff are on hand to serve up a sumptuous breakfast, a delicious snack, or poolside barbecue, otherwise you’ll have the villa entirely to yourself.

Villa Manager

The Layar’s manager is responsible for the overall operation of the villa estate including staffing, special requests and guest satisfaction. His team includes an assistant manager.


Housekeepers will discreetly look after daily villa cleaning and tidying, and will prepare bedrooms in the evening.


A butler will be on hand throughout the day, and will also assist in the kitchen at mealtimes. Please note that The Layar’s butlers work on a room service basis, meaning they are only present at your villa when requested and not stationed at the villa at all times.


The skilled chef creates delectable dishes from The Layar’s extensive room service menu, or he and his team will happily prepare an amazing barbecue for you to enjoy in your villa. A chef can also be privately engaged to cook special meals for you at the villa.


Trained security guards working in shifts keep the villa estate safe and secure round-the-clock.


The Layar Location

The Layar is aptly located in one of the most modern parts of Bali – Seminyak. The Layar, which offers maximum tranquility, exclusivity and security, is just 35 minutes away from Ngurah Rai International Airport.

There are dozens of spas, boutiques, bars and restaurants just a few minutes away from The Layar. Also, volcanoes, traditional villages and rice paddies that can be explored are just a short driving distance away. Other places to visit are the golf course and the stunning beaches.

You could eat out at a different restaurant in Seminyak every night – for months – and still not run out of options. Jalan Laksmana (also known as Jalan Oberoi and Jalan Kayu Aya) is Bali’s fashionable ‘Eat Street’, offering plenty of high-end restaurants including Sarong and Nutmegs at Hu’u Bar and is walking distance from The Layar.

    Amazing Villa!
    A group of us girls stayed in a 3 Bedroom Pool villa with a spa for a quick 5 night getaway.
    The villa was incredible! We couldn’t have asked for any better.
    The villa was huge with plenty of room to have time to yourself. We had breakfast included which was able to be had in the villa or in their amazing restaurant.

    Our stay was great and we cant recommend the Layars more 🙂

    Had a great stay at Layar! We took a 2-bedroom villa and it was very well-sized. My favorite parts were the pool, the outdoor bathroom, and the service. The seating in the hall was also really comfortable. The service during our entire time was top-notch. Right from the receptionist to the housekeeping.

    In terms of room for improvement. The pressure of the shower was very low for my liking. I also wished that the hall had an option to be completely indoors with AC as well. While it was great to sit out, it got very humid and there were lots of mosquitoes which forced us to be in our rooms.

    Overall, it was a great experience and I would certainly recommend it to others.

    The staff are so friendly and I couldn’t recommend this place more highly!

    Our 3 bedroom villa was incredible, and was fantastic for our holiday. We were incredibly impressed by the the villa staff and their continuous help to ensure our stay was a happy one. The villa itself was huge, the pool temp perfect and clean. If we ever did have a problem, the villa staff had it resolved very quickly. I would happily stay here again and recommend it to others.

    Great location, fantastic villas, need some maintenance to the villas – for the price point looking weathered. Very quiet. Lovely design. The room staff, garden staff & staff transporting on buggy were great. The customer service/ reception staff were average.

    Terri Cain

    Good location close enough to Seminyak square but far enough from the hustle and bustle. Rooms were clean and modern but the mattress could have been better. The villas are beautiful and architecturally designed however this design in some areas compromises practical use of the villa and safety. There are heaps better places to stay for this price (a little over priced compared to other villas).

  8. Rated 5 out of 5


    Our second stay at The Layar this time with two families, 4 adults and 4 children and plenty of room for all of us! The Layar staff and our dealings with the Ministry of Villas staff were very accomodating and the buggy drop off service that The Layar offers to nearby places came in handy with the kids. We’ll definately be back, highly recommend The Layar !

    We stayed in 4 bedroom villa and it was so much better than we expected and than the pictures!
    The villa is amazing, the staff are very friendly and accommodating.
    The villa is very clean.
    We loved our stay here and will definitely stay here again when we return.

  10. Rated 4 out of 5


    Great stay in the 3 bed villa. Like all Bali villas, a little rough on the edges sometimes, but overall a great choice and all guests agreed we’d stay again. The pool was beautiful and layout of the villa perfect with lost of space. The buggy drop off service was handy, and all staff helpful when asked to do things. We loved the Indonesian in-villa BBQ one night and gave us the chance to host friends without having to cook/clean. Very handy location. Only ask would be that the rusting fridge be repaired/replaced, and resulting water stains on the kitchen floor be repaired.

    “Amazing villa in the best location in Bali..!!!”

    Just came back from a two week stay at The Layar , villas and spa in the heart of Seminyak Bali . What a fantastic holiday!! Even if you find yourself in the centre of all the bars and clubs and shops , here at The Layar you can still feel like you are in Paradise . Open plan villa immersed in nature with all the luxuries you can wish for. The staff is very polite, friendly and efficient . We definitely recommend it as we thoroughly enjoyed.

    “Expensive but very good”

    We booked one of the 4 bed villas over nye. It was pricey but the service and accommodation was excellent. On New Year’s Eve our restaurant booking fell through and the staff even organized catering with 3 hours notice for a group of 18 people. Staff we’re very attentive and polite and we’re very good considering full occupancy.

    On the negatives- Phone in main area and bell didn’t work and we had an hour delay on check in. All minor inconveniences really although if we didn’t have local phones to call the reception from, it would have been an expensive call when we needed anything.

    “Small heaven within a 3 bed-rooms villa”

    I stayed there only overnight, but my staying there so impressing. We got a 3bed-rooms villa with private swimming pool. The lay out of the villa so homy. Bathrooms so huge, divided into three sections for my room. The breakfast was really superb. We can choose our own breakfast differently between our group of six persons. We really treated as a super vip guest here.

    “Best place on earth”

    We loved every minute of our stay here. We’ve stayed at plenty of villas and hotels in Bali but the Layar is an absolute standout in so many ways and the location is about as good as you’ll get (other than full beachfront). The design is stunning and apparently no two villas are the same. There is no spa as such – instead (even better I think) your treatments are done in your villa or (in my case) in our beautiful garden. The staff are all amazing and we were treated like royalty. We will be heading back as soon as we can!
