Umah Daun - an elite haven


Umah Daun is a stunning, high-spec, professionally staffed villa a few kilometres from the beaches of Canggu on Bali’s south-west coast.  Within four interlinked buildings capped by leaf-shaped roofs are impressive formal living and dining rooms, five bedroom suites, media room, billiard room, library, kids’ playroom and a gourmet kitchen with climate-controlled wine room.  Within the manicured garden, facing emerald rice terraces, is a dining bale and bar alongside the 22-metre swimming pool with separate jacuzzi, and tucked out of sight is a two-tier kids’ tree-house.  This architectural gem is designed for memorable family holidays, celebrations and romantic weddings.


Umah Daun is set at the end of a peaceful lane amidst Balinese houses, a smattering of villas and scenic rice fields.  The bustling district of Raya Semer is 600 metres away, with a long stretch of local-style shops and a small selection of international restaurants and cafés.  A country lane leads across the rice fields to Umalas village (1km), with its quirky cafés and scattering of spas.  The ocean beaches of Canggu, including Berawa, Batubolong (Old Man’s) and Echo Beach are just a few kilometres away, as is Seminyak, with its abundance of bars, restaurants, beach clubs and boutiques.

About Umalas-Kerobokan

Located between Seminyak and Canggu, the area known as Kerobokan, which includes Umalas village and Banjar Semer, is conveniently close to Seminyak’s trendy restaurants and designer boutiques, yet is promoted as the peaceful option because these flat plains still encompass acres of rice fields and distant mountain views.

Development, however, is happening fast, and this group of rural villages is now home to numerous rental villas and private residences, with plenty of cheap ‘n cheerful Western-style cafes cropping up in the most unexpected of places, offering surprisingly good food and home/villa delivery services. Although there are very few shops as yet, there are a number of local supermarkets, bakeries, garden centres, simple spas and fitness centres, as well as three riding stables at nearby Canggu – Kuda P, Tarukan, and Bali Equestrian Centre. Visitors will also find ATM machines and reliable taxi services. The main road leading north of Seminyak to Kerobokan is lined with furniture stores and workshops offering “antiques made to order”.

About Bali

Bali is Indonesia’s most popular tourist location and is considered one of Asia's premier tropical island destinations. Steeped in history and renowned for its artistic way of life, Bali is a peaceful contrast to some of the more frantic destinations Asia has to offer.

The inner peace and creative talents of the Balinese has attracted artists the world over fascinated by local dancers, silversmiths, wood carvers, potters and painters that seem to pervade throughout the island. The abundant verdant fields and surrounding sea have long supplied Bali with an easy surplus of food leaving time for life’s more artistic past times. As a result everything in Bali has a creative and religious element centred around the local Banjar (residents association) – little, adorned temples are everywhere, doors are covered in intricate carvings, huge kites ward off evil spirits and colourful roadside ceremonies bring traffic to a standstill.

Bali is a popular destination principally from Australia and Asia but also from all over Europe. The island welcomes thousands of visitors each year to a relaxing lifestyle, stunning beaches, world class surf, vibrant villages, and spectacular scenery all with an exquisite tropical climate. Located approximately two hours’ flying time from Singapore the island is serviced by an international airport at Denpasar with direct flights to and from many major cities in Asia, Europe and Australia and many more via Jakarta, Indonesia’s capital.

The island offers an impressive range of leisure and lifestyle amenities including world-class golf courses, wonderful seascapes for surfing, diving and snorkelling as well as luxurious spas, chic boutiques, tropical forests, towering volcanoes and international cuisine.

Our review   Overall Rating: 8.90

Seriously spacious, perfectly configured and delightfully uncluttered, Umah Daun was an absolute pleasure to stay in.  The gentle curves of the building mimic the contours of the rice terraces, and the ponds that wrap around the ground floor, coupled with the glass doors that fold right back, made us feel like we were part of the scene rather than just looking at it.

Villas of this size can be a little austere and overwhelming, but there is enough colour in the décor and verdant landscape at Umah Daun to make it feel warm and intimate.  Our favourite design feature was the beautifully carved antique door shutters coloured in shades of teal and turquoise, which make stunning features on the white walls, as well as lovely bed heads in the childrens’ rooms.  Bedrooms are large and very comfortable and there are plenty of daybeds and sofas piled high with plump cushions that provide comfortable vantage points for soaking up the views and the peaceful ambiance.  It is such a lovely space, and the staff took such good care of us, that we didn’t really feel the need to go anywhere, but it was good to know that both the beach and Seminyak were easy to reach should we fancy a sunset walk or a meal out.

The experience from the very beginning has been nothing short of spectacular. The villa is breathtaking and I challenge anyone to find a higher level of hospitality. The staff became an extended part of our family. Made's attention to detail, professionalism, and overall kindness was all you could ask for. Wayan's drink making skills and multiple individual store trips kept the party going. Ayu and Ani were so accommodating and their skills were amazing. All service was done with a warm smile. We will be back and all wanting to bring our families. See you again soon.... thank you from us all....

There are no words that can fully express how much we enjoyed our stay at the exquisite Umah Daun. We appreciate so much the quality of service and kindness we received from Made, Ketut, Wayan, Ayu and Ani. Thank you! If we are lucky our paths will across again.

Where do I begin.....breakfast of fruit, delicious coffee at the dining room table with the sound of fish jumping, lazy days by the pool (and in it) on the bean bags whilst being brought cocktails prepared by Wayan, dinners at the poolside, lovingly prepared and beautiful presented, of seafood or other Balinese specialties. But it was the way I was made to feel everyday that was the highlight. Everyone insisted I relax, enjoy every second and savour the villa.... which I certainly did. The villa is certainly a highlight in my years of traveling and the attention to detail in everything, from light fixtures to paintings was impressive. Wayan's delicious cocktails were amazing and his (and all the staff) smiles everyday made you feel like this was heaven on earth. I wish I could stay forever....

I often stay in 5 star hotels around the world as part of my job. I have yet to enjoy such a personalised service as I have here. Made and the team were superb with chef Ketut supplying the best seafood meal I have had in long long time. I tried to stay longer & was offering my services but I am not qualified to offer such amazing service in this beautiful, peaceful, WOW place.

  Overall Rating: 1.00

WOW... what an amazing place. When your kids are crying because you have to tell them the holiday is knew you have stayed somewhere special. Firstly the villa itself is simply beautiful. Clearly someone has put a huge amount of time in designing the layout from the pool and outdoor dining area to the decor and styling. Everything is both practical and stylish. Made and his team could not have been nicer to us. The food was great and their service fantastic. Whatever we needed they wanted to help. Whatever they did to help us felt sincere and was perfectly executed. We will our holiday here forever.

We were astounded when we first stepped into the villa. I have never expected the villa to look exactly like the web pictures. I usually hoped for 75% of the photos. But I got almost a full 100% Villa was clean, surrounding was tranquil and beautiful. The villa staff were awesome. Full of smiles and always ready to serve. They seem to be able to do anything and everything seems to be available! No amount of words can describe our experience except that it wasn't enough. 3 nights is just too short! Thanks to Made, Wayan and everyone who served us. Even the Security Staff made sure we are comfortable and safe. Looking forward to our next villa trip with Elite Havens
