Relax poolside - De Suma


A villa holiday in Bali has many advantages for families, including unrestricted access to your own private facilities whenever you want. Happy kids mean happy parents and knowing that the kids can run around independently and safely, without you having to worry about other guests, is a real plus.

A swimming pool and two fish ponds mean that those with toddlers need to be vigilant, however all rooms at the villa overlook the pool so it’s easy to keep a look-out, and a pool fence can be organised on request. The two ground floor bedrooms can be configured as twins, so each sleeping pavilion works well for a family of four.

The team of friendly staff at Villa De Suma will make children feel as welcome as adults, and having these willing helpers on hand gives guests plenty of flexibility and freedom to do their own exploring beyond the villa grounds (full-time babysitting incurs a small extra cost).

Guests are most welcome to use the equipped kitchen to prepare meals for fussy eaters or babies, but staff will also be happy to do this for you – just discuss your requirements and meal schedules with the villa manager and he will gladly take care of the rest. The chef can also customise all meals to suit children’s taste buds, and provides a special menu for the kids too, which includes fish and chips, homemade chicken nuggets, and spaghetti bolognese.

Don’t worry about packing all that cumbersome kids’ equipment for your stay. Just let us know what you need, and anything we don’t have in-house (villa facilities include a baby cot, high chair, and floating pool toys) we can hire on your behalf (click here to see list of available hire items).

Petitenget beach is just a few minutes walk from the villa, but please make sure to swim between the flags as the surf can sometimes be rough. Beach and villa life aside, Bali also has plenty of activities for all the family to enjoy, from water parks, to Flying foxes, elephant rides and sightseeing.

Villa De Suma, Seminyak 4 bedroom luxury villa, Bali Elite Havens

Translating as ‘flower’ in Sanskrit, stunning Villa De Suma blends old world glamour with modern luxurious comfort.  Hand-picked antiques and ethnic artefacts evoke the magic and the mystery of Indonesia and the Orient, while a team of dedicated staff provide the warm hospitality that Bali is famous for.  Imbued with a charismatic rustic elegance, rich textures are revealed in volcanic lava stone, recycled ironwood pillars, and a magnificent walled garden adorned with staghorn ferns, palms and tropical shrubs.

Located in the heart of lively Seminyak, yet hidden away in a peaceful private estate, Villa De Suma offers the best of both worlds.  It is hard to imagine a better location from which to enjoy all that Seminyak has to offer, from surf beaches to world-class restaurants, beach bars and boutiques.  Yet when its time to chill, just swing back the beautiful antique Chinese doors and retreat into your own private hideaway.  The 14-metre swimming pool surrounded by a wide ironwood deck, sun loungers and lush vertical garden, provides an idyllic setting for lazy sunny days and balmy evenings illuminated by flickering candles and hurricane lanterns. With an iPod dock and Bose speakers to hand, you can choose your own holiday soundtrack.

Four spacious, modern bedrooms are located in two double-storey sleeping pavilions at either end of the pool, making the villa a fair share for groups or families.  The main pavilion is the epitome of tropical living with its whirring fans, fresh coastal breeze and dining table for eight.  A talented private chef is on hand to prepare gourmet meals, seafood barbecues and Indonesian banquets from a suggestion menu, but you may prefer to wander down the lane to sample Eat Street’s eclectic range of restaurants.  Should you wish to explore the island’s mystical volcanoes, picturesque rice fields and fabled temples, Villa De Suma’s friendly manager will be happy to arrange transport or tours.
