Villa Batujimbar - Pool

About Villa Batujimbar

If any place epitomises authentic Balinese architecture and true island living, it is Villa Batujimbar. A treasure-filled travel destination in itself, this sublime property sits on over an acre of beachfront land, with expansive lawns and tropical gardens. The Balinese palaces at Amlapura and Klungkung plus the famed water gardens of Tirta Gangga influenced Sri Lankan ‘tropical modernism’ architect Geoffrey Bawa who designed the property. You can see these inspirations clearly reflected in the two-storey moat-encircled Lembu balé that commands centre stage, towering over the pool on one side and the garden-facing rooms on the other.

Villa Batujimbar - Private raised beachside sun loungers

The lower gallery of the Lembu balé lies locked, home to an astonishing collection of Balinese art. This private collection rivals the island’s finest galleries and museums and can be viewed by guests on special request. Yet art is not confined to this space alone. It is embedded in the very soul of the villa. Throughout the living and sleeping pavilions you’ll come across architectural treasures, rare artefacts, painted antique doors and windows, and heirloom paintings that reveal a passion for Balinese art and craftsmanship. And within the expansive gardens are myriad moss-encrusted statuary and intricately carved stone reliefs. Bali’s beauty shines in the materials used too – vaulted alang-alang thatched roofs, lava stone steps, coral walls, and terrazzo and teak wood floors.

It is no wonder then, that this spectacular wedding villa has attracted so many celebrity guests over the years. This is the very same villa where Mick Jagger and Jerry Hall got married, Sting gave an impromptu concert and Princess Diana retreated to when she needed a break from the paparazzi. In such splendid surroundings, and pampered by a team of staff that includes a private chef, personal butlers and Villa Manager, you can look forward to royal treatment too.

    We had our wonderful wedding here during our stay which was made even more magical in this beautiful villa setting. Thank you to all the villa staff for their brilliant support throughout. We have loved the food, the pool, the rooms, the beautiful spot throughout. We would definitely love to visit again at some time in the future.

    Thank you for a truly amazing stay. We couldn't have asked for a better place for our first experience in Bali. The staff was endlessly helpful and the facilities were always extremely well kept. We are incredibly grateful for the kindness and helpfulness we were always treated with. We all agree that this was one of the best holidays we have ever been on.

    From the dark and cold north we come, 19 swedes of all ages. The gentle smile of Ari and his wonderful staff made us feel like home. After 12 days and 12 nights we return to Sweden, thankful, relaxed, tanned and inspired. Villa Batujimbar is hard to describe in words. It is so rich in emotions that need to be experienced. One has to walk in the garden and discover all the art work while listening to the ocean and the birds. We all agree that this was a perfect vacation. We cannot thank Ari and his staff enough. Every day and at even moment they have given us generous attention and precious care. We are already planing to return.

    Wow.. what a stay! My partner David and I were told about this villa from a friend who lived here. We booked to stay at the villa and have our wedding here before seeing it. The photos look amazing, but they were nothing for in comparison to seeing it in person. From the moment we stepped foot in Batujimbar we were completely mesmerized. Never in our wildest dream could we have imagined such an incredible, magical and spiritual place. The ground, the room, the views, the architecture were stunning but the things that impressed us the most were the staff - their kindness, professionalism and incredible way of making us all feel very comfortable. This is a moment are will treasure for the rest of our lives. Words cannot describe the feeling my partner and I and all our party guest experienced throughout our time here. A huge thank you to Villa Batujimbar for making our special day the experience of a lifetime.

    Our close family stayed here with us for 6 days, and we also held our wedding ceremony and reception on the villa grounds. The ambiance, location and quality of Batu Jimbar was more than we could have ever dreamed for, and we would highly recommend this fabulous venue to anyone looking to have an experience of a life time.
