  1. If I’m renting island accommodation, I usually like it to be beachfront. It’s also a bonus if these places are eco-friendly. These Bali villas remind me of the villas in Tobago. They look so relaxing and spacious!

  2. Beach front Villas in Bali looks so luxurious and near to nature. I would prefer to stay in these all are perfect for family ceremonies and get-together. Destination wedding can be perfectly arranged here. Villa Taman Ahimsa and Shalimar Estate is my first choice. Thanks for sharing!

  3. Reading this blog the first word which came to my mind was gorgeous. These villas look so pretty and luxurious. Going to Bali soon with Family. Hope to book one of them :)

  4. All of these places are pieces of heaven on a plate! Villa Marie is probably my favourite, just for the layout and all the natural light. I loved Canggu but didn’t spend enough time there. That said, I would return in a heartbeat, and to those beautiful places!

  5. I don’t know how you would pick from these. I love all the pools and turquoise and would be thrilled to stay in any of them! I do appreciate an eco friendly approach.

  6. Bali is the modern must-visit destination. I’m not surprised TripAdvisor voted it the number 1 destination for 2017. Anyone who is a world traveller must stop here sometime this year! Villa Tantangan looks amazing. Completely powered by solar power makes it well worth looking at – I love seeing ecological tourism on the rise, especially in the luxury sector as I’m not really the type for camping!

  7. Chilling in an infinity pool is on my bucket list, perhaps Villa Tantangan will have to go on my radar for my Bali trip! I love how its solar powered too, it’s great to see countries like this helping out in any way they can. Villa LeGa is also my personal favourite, it looks fantastic – i would never want to leave. So many choices!

  8. Anema Resort in Lombok (Panati Sire) is one of THE CALMEST spots! The resort is located right on that beach. The beach is super calm, so perfect for kids. It’s only a 15 min boat ride away from the famous Gili Islands as well.
