Villa Voyage - an elite haven

 

Villa Voyage is aptly named. This private five-bedroom haven set beside a secluded white-sand beach, on the idyllic tropical island of Lembongan, just 30 minutes’ private boat ride from Bali’s Benoa harbour, transports guests to another time and place with its rustic nostalgia and sense of adventure.

Turquoise waters beckon divers, snorkellers and anglers; dramatic coastlines are a photographer’s dream, and seekers of luxury will be delighted by the villa itself, which offers elegant accommodation, a beachfront infinity pool and a team of efficient and friendly staff, including a chef who can turn his hand to anything from soufflés to satay.

Location


Villa Voyage is located on a small cove on the south-west shore of Nusa Lembongan – its pool deck opens directly onto a curved beach of fine white sand. From almost every room you can see the azure waves surging ashore and plumes of spray bursting skywards behind Devil’s Tear, the limestone headland across the bay. On one side of the villa is the Sandy Bay Beach Club (conveniently, its restaurant, bar and spa is a hop and skip away) and, tucked along the cliff-top on the other side, are three or four (more modest) private villas and the popular Sunset Bar. Strong currents in the bay rule out swimming but a short 10-minute stroll south along the cliff-top path will bring you to Dream Beach with its safe swimming and a popular café.

About Nusa Lembongan


The island of Nusa Lembongan lies 12 kilometres south east of Bali (only 18 kilometres from Bali’s international airport). The 25-minute boat ride across the Badung Strait from Sanur is a great way to seriously slow down: leaving the hustle and bustle of the mainland behind and stepping ashore at Mushroom Beach is akin to stepping back in time – many say several decades! Laid back and easy-going, Nusa Lembongan is blissfully traffic-free – few cars, no buses, mostly just scooters and bicycles.

The eight-square-kilometre tropical island is ringed with white-sand beaches, limestone bluffs and mangrove forests and fringed by a coral reef. It’s linked by a startlingly yellow suspension bridge (two-wheels or pedestrians only) to its tiny neighbour, Nusa Ceningan, beyond which is the third of this island sisterhood, the rugged Nusa Penida.

The island’s crystal-clear waters are visited seasonally (July-September) by Mola-Mola, the majestic oceanic sunfish which contribute to the island’s standing as a world-class dive destination. The shallow coral reefs attract snorkellers, while the more adventurous head for the surf breaks and cliff-jumping sites.

There’s much to charm on dry land too: clamber across limestone outcrops on delightful headland walks; visit a seaweed farm (perhaps followed by a seaweed spa session); cycle through Lembongan Village to the mangroves on the northern shore. Tourist activity is focused on Jungut Batu (the island’s second village) and Mushroom Bay, where the midday heat brings an influx of day-trippers from the Bali mainland. By 4pm the crowds have gone, and this beautiful beach of white sand becomes the preserve of lucky overnight residents, who have the run of barefoot beach bars, cafes and an increasing number of restaurants.


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.

This Robinson-Crusoe-meets-Roberto-Cavalli villa is sensational! Not usually prone to hyperbole, we consider it nigh on impossible not to be bowled over by the entire ‘barefoot luxury’ Villa Voyage experience. From the moment we caught sight of the dramatic sea vista beyond the living room, we were completely hooked. We lazed on sun loungers and beanbags by the pool, enjoyed siestas on the mezzanine bedroom balcony, and slumbered within the “I had a farm in Africa” tent bed, soothed by the pounding surf. The staff looked after us brilliantly, serving us a delicious breakfast every morning in the beachfront gazebo, and a three-course candle-lit dinner (tenderloin steak for him, sea bass for me) accompanied by the best chips in Bali! (Ingredients – which are charged to guests at cost plus a 30% shopping fee - are boated in from the mainland fresh every day, so we were asked to make our menu selection ideally 48 hours in advance).

This is a place that doesn’t do things by halves; all the design details have been painstakingly thought through, right down to the place mats and napkins (different for each meal – what perfection!). We loved the ‘voyage’ theme – the exotic travel books, the safari-style furniture. Every inch of the villa is a rich sensory pleasure, packed with surprises and with no part overlooked…like the antique daybed in the shadows of a sacred tree by the villa temple and the gate to the beach

We could have happily stayed put at the pool, so deeply relaxing is the Voyage experience! But the villa’s open-sided van, and jukung (outrigger) encouraged us out of our indolence, and we loved exploring the island – next time we’ll make a point of diving with the manta rays! We also dipped into the beach club next door for a tasty lunch, and strolled along the cliff tops – Dream Beach is only ten minutes away, and the restaurants of Mushroom Bay not much further.

Would we return to Villa Voyage? In a heartbeat! We felt so privileged to be among its first guests, and think that, once word gets out, this tropical island hideaway is going to get booked solid – by families and groups of friends.

We enjoyed our stay at Villa Voyage. The house is spectacular and the views from the pool area are amazing. The house should likely be advertised as a 4 bedroom house with a "granny-flat" or "nanny-flat" located in the front of the property away from the actual house/pool area.

We had a wonderful stay at Villa Voyage. Villa Manager Kadek was extremely friendly and very helpful. He helped us to organise private sunset yoga session and scooters for our stay. He also told us about all the best spots to explore on the magical Island of Nusa Lembongan. The villa itself was stunning and tastefully decorated. Loved the pool overlooking the ocean. Thanks so much for an amazing stay!

Villa Voyage is in a reasonably secluded location away from the chaos of Bali. It offers uninterrupted views, peace and tranquility. The Viila bedrooms are spacious, clean and very comfortable and above all, homely. The overall feeling of the Villa is comfortable luxury without complication or fuss. Our every need was taken care of and the staff are, without question, one of the greatest assets of the Villa. We really enjoyed our time at the Villa and left feeling refreshed and revitalised. We would not hesitate to recommend the Villa to any travellers who are looking for somewhere to recharge their batteries.

Actually, this was the best 'relaxing holiday' I think I have ever had. So glad we didn't go to mainland Bali this time. We adored the low key pace and the lack of cars, traffic, shops, chaos. The villa is divine. For us (two families with older teenage children) it was perfect to have the separate bedrooms and bathrooms for everyone but we also really loved that there was one big internal living space. We felt that we (eight in total) could all be there together yet doing different things. We brought paints and did lots of painting and drawing; we played scrabble, read extensively, swam, had a yoga teacher come and do a class each morning by the pool; wrote epistles! The snorkeling and swimming with manta rays was totally fabulous; all the staff were gorgeous and amazing. We totally loved Kadek, Gabriel and Wayan who we got to know most. The food was outstanding. We had three meals outside the villa (including one at the much feted Indiana Kananga) and we felt on all three occasions that, while it was nice to have the excursion, the food was better from Wayan's kitchen. It really was a very special holiday and we vow to be back before too long! Suggestions? Put some bicycles (maybe four) in the house so guests can take short bike rides. And make the menus more 'asian'. Next time I would just ask Wayan to prepare Indonesian and other Asian food as he thought best. His Indonesian banquets were outstanding and we wondered why anyone would want anything else! The other two things I would say is: 1) it would be good if it was really stressed that you need to have lots of IDR in cash. Like about 10 000 000 a week? I think that was roughly what we spent for the eight of us for the week but we didn't have time to get enough cash on the mainland so we were struggling a bit trying to keep the float going and hoping the one ATM would give us enough to get to the end of the week. 2) you also need to emphasise the limitations imposed by the speedboat travel with the last boat leaving from Sanur at 5pm. For anyone coming from Australia at least, none of the flights come in before early afternoon and with the new airport customs arrangements, you need to allow a good two hours to get out of the airport (they have GOT to fix that!). We very nearly missed our boat, despite the flight having arrived at 2.30pm. It would be prudent for people to spend a night or two on the mainland to reduce the stress of trying to make the last boat. But none of that takes away from the amazing holiday. Truly, we are torn between telling everyone we know about our little slice of heaven...or NOT telling anyone. This is the real Bali and real relaxation.

We had an amazing holiday at Villa Voyage with our extended family (9 of us)in January. It is a truly beautiful house in a breathtaking location. By far, the most memorable part of our stay was the staff....wonderful in every way. The food and service was outstanding and the personalities fabulous too! We loved the tasteful, interesting decor and many,many interesting books to read. I do hope that we are able to return in the not too distant future.

Felt like we were part of the rich and famous world, unbelievable.

The Voyage is in a terrific beach location and the interior sports wonderful furniture, decor, and best of all outdoor bathrooms. The in-house chef prepares the best food while the cocktails on the terrace overlooking the beach and pool at sunset are to die fot.

  Overall Rating: 8.50


An extraordinary seafront villa newly constructed on the tropical island of Nusa Lombongan a mere 30 minute speedboat trip from Bali. The 'Wow' factor is everywhere from the travelers Trunk theme of yesteryear to the stunning views and gorgeous appointments both inside and outside the villa. The beach is secluded and of powder white coral sand. The infinity overflow pool is semi saline and with a funky fiber optic light system for nighttime. Music can be listened to everywhere in the villa courtesy of a built in state of the art sound system. The staff are just amazing and will look after you from the moment you arrive with no fuss whatsoever. Food was scrumptious with plenty of variety. Ample room for all the family or five couples to relax and enjoy a very unique seaside break. We will be back !

Absolute beachfront, barefoot luxury, breathtaking views, designer interiors, gourmet cuisine, and a private jukung outrigger for island cruises – what's not to love about Villa Voyage! Castaway chic doesn’t get better than this fully staffed 5-bedroom beach retreat on Nusa Lembongan, a laid-back tropical island half an hour from Bali's mainland.
