Villa Bukit Segara - Luxury in East Bali

Heading north from Denpasar to the eastern side of Bali, the pace slows down, to a mix of tourism and village life. Shopping is easy without being haggled, and occasionally, you may find a hidden beach all to yourself. East Bali has not succumbed to the frantic pace of the south, and tourism has been slower to develop, with places like Amed only installing power lines in 2011. But travelling three hours north of Denpasar doesn’t mean that luxury is out of reach. The area is home to a mix of small boutique hotels and villas, rather than the chains of the south.

Villa Bukit Segara in Amed, is one such villa, that offers all the amenities of downtown Seminyak, without the crowds. With attention to detail, architect Joost Van Grieken designed the tropical villa, built in 2010. The pristine property can be rented out per room or as a whole, and is an ideal location for a special event. The property boasts an infinity pool, an intimate restaurant with views over the ocean, a sailing school and a seaside bure. The owner, Derk, adds some pleasant Dutch touches, including freshly baked bread each morning and manicured gardens with some small farm animals.
