Villa Kubu offers guests the best of both worlds, combining individually-designed, spacious and elegant private sanctuaries situated in lush garden settings with instant access to sophisticated Seminyak and all that this popular area of south-western Bali has to offer. It is little wonder that Villa Kubu draws travellers from all corners of the globe.
Boho chic restaurants, boutiques, galleries and Seminyak’s famous nightlife are just some of the attractions within walking distance of Villa Kubu. The expansive Seminyak Beach with its spectacular year-round sunsets is a stroll away, and to cap it all, the villas are within easy reach of Bali’s international airport.
Villa Kubu’s luxury private residences, which overflow with traditional features and luxurious modern amenities, are now available in two sought-after locations in Seminyak, each serviced by the same highly experienced staff and overseen by the same caring management. The original location offers 15 separate villas (one, two and three-bedrooms in size) while Lataliana Villas, the newest additions to the Villa Kubu family, comprise a two-bedroom and a five-bedroom villa each standing independently and serenely within delightful tropical gardens.
The owner has lovingly built each of Kubu and Lataliana’s 17 individual villas, one by one, over a 12-year period. Don’t expect cookie cutter plunge pools and mass produced furnishings and fittings. Each villa has its own personality as unique as the Australian owner, and all come with their own private swimming pools, hand picked decorations from across the archipelago and framed in enchanted tropical gardens.
A yellow flag at your villa’s front entrance signifies to the staff that you are in residence; green means ‘Please service immediately, champagne and nibbles are required’, while red means ‘Do not disturb’. The system is followed with the utmost respect by the staff whose friendly smiling service is so synonymous with Bali.
