Jadine Villa Bali: something special

Sometimes you find a real gem. The kind of place you can’t stop thinking about; the kind of place you can’t shut up about when you get home. For me, Jadine Villa Bali is that special place.

Thanks to flight times from Adelaide to Bali, we didn’t actually arrive at the villa until about 1am, and I sort of expected to pass out before being able to explore. But the second I walked in, I was in love. And even though I was exhausted, I had to take some time to soak in my new luxury surroundings.

Where is the Jadine Villa?

Located a couple of minutes from Berawa Beach in Canggu, the Jadine Villa Bali is a convenient walk from the main shopping and eating strip in Canggu as well as a quick taxi or shuttle ride from Finn’s Beach Club (for my list of Bali beach clubs, click here). If you’re not familiar with Canggu, this trendy strip is the suburb north of Seminyak – on the popular beach strip but not in the craziness of Kuta. From Canggu, it’s still just as easy to get to any major sites you’d want to see as it would be from Seminyak or any other of the popular places to stay. (For more info on Canggu, this post from the Bali Bible is great.)

The entrance to the villa itself is in a little alleyway so without a transfer from the airport it would be pretty tricky to find. But the staff communicate really well, so get them to pick you up and you’ll be fine. The nice thing about its somewhat hidden location is it’s nice and secure.

You’re surrounded by other villas and quieter roads, interspersed with rice paddies. Nice and quiet – you won’t be disturbed by any ruckus! It’s also a really lovely, leisurely and scenic stroll into the main street of Canggu, where you can stock up on supplies or head to one of the many trendy cafes.

What’s the experience like at Jadine Villa?

The team at Jadine Villa Bali are amazing.

Drivers will take you anywhere you want to go and recommend all sorts of fun activities. Chefs will cook you anything you want to eat or fetch take out for you, and the breakfast they prepare in your kitchen each morning is sensational. Just like a hotel, housekeeping will come and make up your rooms and do a general tidy up each day and the concierge team will help with anything else.

The special shout-out, MVP award goes to Adi though. This guy is the true gem of Jadine Bali Villa. He’s like a tour guide, host and best friend all rolled into one. Pretty sure my Dad wanted to adopt him and bring him home with us (even though he has a family of his own).

Having a team of people ready to help you out each day is great, but where it really becomes noticed is when something goes wrong. Our eldest had a nasty fall from a few metres up (no kidding – he’s incredibly lucky to have walked away with a few bruises). The team were so quick to get doctors on the way to us and even offered to call an ambulance for us. It was a really scary experience and I’m honestly not qite sure how we would have handled the situation if it wasn’t for the Jadine team. If they’re not in the villa, they’re a simple WhatsApp message away and reply instantly.

What’s the actual villa like?

Where do I start describing the actual villa to you?! You walk in, and there’s a large wading pool on one hand and a gorgeous jacuzzi on the other. The wading pool was perfect for the little ones (my two-year-old could stand up safely in it) or just lovely to sit and dip your feet into while enjoying a drink.

Walking in, there’s a lounge/sitting area, dining, and kitchen. It’s all open-plan and extremely well equipped so if you do want to, you can cook. We bought a whole bunch of nibbles and drinks from the grocery store in Canggu and kept them on hand in the fridge so we could snack by the pool. Filtered drinking water is always available. You’ll see a little staff kitchen off to the side where your meals are prepared by your personal chefs.

There’s one queen bedroom downstairs, and one queen and one twin (two single beds) upstairs. There’s also a gorgeous master suite outside, separated from the main house by the pool. Each bedroom has a huge ensuite with tub, cable television, and lockable doors. The bedrooms upstairs feature french doors that open up to a huge balcony overlooking both pools. There’s also an upstairs sitting area.

Between the main house and the master suite, there’s the main pool. This is a proper lap pool and is just perfect. Surrounding the pool on one side is lush grass and a garden; on the other side is plenty of sitting space on the deck or under a cabana. There are deck chairs all along the pool’s edge.

The whole villa is a perfect mix of traditional batik style with modern touches.

How much does the Jadine Bali Villa cost?

A current booking.com search shows prices starting from about $100AUD per person per night at the moment. Which is very reasonable for the standard you’re getting. Very reasonable? Did I just say that? It’s not reasonable, it’s bloody incredible.

The honest truth…

I don’t know, I feel like I haven’t said anything negative. But honestly, I couldn’t find one! Usually, I’m a tough customer to please but this is one of maybe two or three properties I’ve stayed in my life where I was just truly happy with everything. Maybe I’m biased, I was well overdue for a holiday. But I just can’t think of anything to really fault.

    Bali has become such a hot destination recently! I feel like I had over 10 friends this past year who travelled to Bali – can’t blame them though, it’s beautiful from all the pictures! Also, this villa looks amazing – I’d definitely want to spend some time here to unwind and relax. :3

      Thanks Lise! It was divine. I keep thinking I need to find a negative so it sounds like a more impartial review but… nope, can’t think of anything!

      Oh yes Arv, lots to explore! Next time I do I want to explore a couple of hours north. There’s a few lazy surf towns, Candi Dasa and Amed, that my friends rave about.

    The Villa looks beautiful. My husband and I have talked about visiting Bali before, and when we do this is now at the top of my list. Is it close to anything interesting we should know about?

      Posted May 17, 2018

      Yes! Go for it! I have another post here on beach clubs; Finns is right around the corner from the Villa. https://awinterescape.com/eight-of-the-best-beach-clubs-in-bali/

      There’s great shopping in Seminyak, and a must do is heading down to Jimbaran Bay for a seafood dinner. A virus to Tanah Lot temple is lovely also. Your staff at the villa can help you arrange it all ?
