Imagine: an incredibly beautiful tropical Balinese villa in vivid Seminyak, with your own private swimming pool, living room, stone path garden, kitchen, and a massive bath tub/jacuzzi – right next to a freaking koi pond! It’s a luxurious home-away-from-home; an accommodation with so much to offer, you’d never want to leave!
We are staunch advocates of the #treatyoself principle – spoiling yourself with a well-deserved luxury every now and then, because it only makes sense to blow off some steam and indulge after all the stress and hard work we go through! So if you’ve been saving up for an ideal vacation treat, we suggest finally booking that flight to Bali that you’ve always been considering, and getting yourself a villa here, ASAP!
A warm welcome from Villa Kubu
Massive and comfy four-poster bed with nets to keep the mosquitoes out
Destination in question is Villa Kubu, a sprawling complex comprising exclusively of designer villas for couples, friends and family, and only a stone’s throw from Seminyak’s bustling upscale dining and nightlife district. But honestly, when you have a private villa as BOMB as this one, why would you ever want to leave?

Our villa had a fully furnished kitchen as well
Outdoor shower with a view, natch!

A maze of walled villas led us to our own private escape: 325 square meters of everything you could possibly need for a dream vacation. From the stone path garden leading up to our living room, which then opens up to a view of our own swimming pool, to a picturesque koi pond framed by our outdoor bath tub, it is evident that Villa Kubu was designed to be the ultimate vacation home. No detail too small, no luxury spared; our villa had all the bases covered for the most comfortable stay, plus heaps more. I especially admired how they even had bath salts and insect repellant (we were told the mosquitoes go crazy come nighttime, though we didn’t really experience it) available on the ready.
Bikes were available for use free of charge, free transport was offered from our villa to Seminyak square or Seminyak beach, and motorbikes were also conveniently available for rent. Guests were even granted IDR 150,000 vouchers at their in-house spa, Spa Venus. Needless to say, I felt very well-cared for!
Bali offered some of the best sunsets I’ve witnessed in my entire life. With the sun perfectly centered on the horizon, visibly and gradually descending into the seas
Breakfast with a view! Good mornings guaranteed!
Fondest memories of our trip include having laid-back al fresco breakfasts prepared right in our villa, enjoying the slow and steady pace of a lazy day as we lounged by the pool, doing a bit of swimming when the noontime sun got too hot, and stepping out into the late afternoon to get a glimpse of Seminyak beach’s famous sunset. Our days were balmy, bright and slow, and our nights either loud and colorful in the main district, or peaceful and quiet in our villa. It was, personally, my ideal retreat. And on the day of our flight back, we honestly didn’t want to leave! Our cozy home-away-from-home had inevitably rubbed off on us, and I’m sure it would on you as well.
We were lucky to have discovered Villa Kubu online. And I gotta say, from the time we’ve made an email inquiry until when we were dropped off to the airport, we’ve experienced nothing but impeccable service. Villa Kubu currently offers discounts of up to 33% off on accommodations booked from now until March 24, 2016 – which means there’s no better time to book a villa than now!
