About Bernard and Jane Hudepohl

We were both born in The Hague in the Netherlands and love travelling. In 1991 we started a trip around the world and fell in love with Bali. We returned several times but after having children mainly had Europe as holiday destination. When we went back to Bali with the family in 2008 we found the perfect place to build our future home in paradise.

Bernard and Jane Hudepohl purchased this villa in 2008

Why Bernard and Jane Hudepohl chose Bali

When we went back to Bali in 2008, it was a bit of a shock how busy the south was. A lot had changed in 15 years. In Pemuteran we found the relaxed atmosphere that we loved and the conditions that we think will keep this place special for the future. The scenery around the bay is magnificent and for snorkeling and diving it is probably the best spot in Bali. The people are special and the community is very much involved in protecting the area. It is a privilege to be there.

What makes this villa unique

A friend that stayed with us mentioned that the villa is a destination by itself. He felt so relaxed and just liked being there, enjoying the scenery and listening to the waves. The garden is very large compared to most villas in Bali, giving it a sense of space. The style is traditional and there are many large trees, giving the impression that the house belongs there. Add to the experience a friendly staff that takes care of all your needs and a private boat to explore the area, go fishing and watch the sunset.

Guestbook comments from the manager

I can go on and on, but the truth is simple..... This place had the best views, best property, amazing staff, great accessibility for exploring (super close to the monkey temple and others), and the food was SO good. They also hooked us up with a guide, Made, for snorkeling and other adventures who helped us communicate with the locals and find the best reefs and spots of Pemuteran.

If you want to relax, get spa treatments, dine and enjoy good company... This is the spot. There were four couples staying and we felt there was plenty of space, plenty of everything.

We're all very active but this place sucked us in immediately. We will definitely return to this magical place on the ocean!

Villa Semadhi: paradise found!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for two weeks in Villa Semadhi and we enjoyed every single moment: the house is beautifully designed and furnished with a great eye and sense for detail. Beside that, it's very comfortable with its large rooms and bathrooms. For example: we enjoyed very much our comfortable outdoor, walled bathroom with an amazing tree and beautiful big plants.

During day- and evening time the garden is the place to be: for every moment of the day you can find several comfortable places to read, meditate or just relax in the shadow of flowering trees, such as the amazing 'frangipani' (Plumeria). Furthermore there's a lovely breakfast/lunch/dinner pavilion in the garden, surrounded by a pond full of fairy tale waterlilies and fishes. We just sat down, had a nice Balinese Bintang beer and waited for the wonderful Balinese 'cuisine' to surprise us! We were absolutely spoiled by the very friendly staff, not only with delicious meals, but also with a bicycle whenever desired and other small attentions.

I should not forget to mention the infinity pool, which is very well placed within this tropical paradise garden: we swam with a lovely view on the ocean at one side and the beautiful house on the other!

As for the surroundings of the villa, they are also worth a close look: we found some interesting temples and even attended a service in one of them. Furthermore there are several beautiful resorts at about 10 min. cycling. We were very welcome to walk around and take a look and pictures and to have a nice lunch or dinner at the beach. Every resort has its own character, so we visited them all! We also found some nice little giftshops and small 'warungs' (little restaurants). At last we made a very special trip to Menjangan Island by boat, where we went snorkling and saw the most amazing fishes and other creatures.

Last but not least we were truly touched by the unbelievable friendliness of the Balinese people: everybody smiles, says 'hello' or even asks where you're from and if you like Bali. Never before we met such friendly and open people!

No surprise: we truly and very enthusiastically recommend this villa and give it five stars!

Simply paradise

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of 6 people and greatly enjoyed our time at Villa Semadhi. The Villa is a location for itself - relaxing and soothing. It is easy to spend the days just there - if you do not wish to wonder around. The garden is wonderful and has lots of places that offer privacy and a hide-away. We decided no to go out once for dinner or lunch - because Jero's coooking is so superb.

The staff is very attentive and simply amazing. Thank you Putra, Ketut, Kadek, Komang and Jero for making us feel so welcome ! And thank-you Bernard and Jane for making this such a beautiful place.

Un soggiorno meraviglioso

  • 5 of 5

La zona di Permuteran e' ancora oggi la zona di Bali meglio conservata, con bellezze naturali mozza fiato e con la gente più vera.

Persone gentilissime, bellissime che trasmettono entusiasmo e gioia di vivere.

Menjangan, il Bali Barat, il cratere di Ijan a Jawa, le barche tutte in bambu' dei pescatori locali ma soprattutto queste persone resteranno per sempre nei nostri cuori.

La villa e' un paradiso di bellezza e di eleganza. Fantastica sia per una famiglia con tre figli come la nostra che per amici o coppie che vogliano un nascondiglio esclusivo e di grandissimo gusto.

Putra e tutto il suo personale sono il massimo che si possa sperare di trovare. Ottima anche la loro cucina. Amichevoli anche le scimmie che ogni tanto ci facevano visita.

Putra si e' davvero comportato da amico. E' un posto dove andare subito, prima che anche questa parte di Bali irrimediabilmente si trasformi.

Peace on Earth!

  • 5 of 5

I must say that my stay in Villa Semadhi was like Heaven on Earth. It felt like time had stopped and nature was happy and there was peace in the world. The air was so clear and fresh and everything was beautiful. I loved the bathroom in my suite, it had a live tree inside which was also outside. So pleasant and just nice. I went with four of my friends and we each had our own favourite spot. I loved the little coach on the porch, carved and beautiful where I could rest. My friends loved the apartment above the dining area and they would just sit and watch the ocean. The pool was just right for exercise or just having fun. The staff were incredible and always ready to serve. We had delicious meals out near the ocean or wherever we wanted, cooked to order. A great vacation getaway.

Something for everyone

  • 5 of 5

Had an amazing stay at Villa Semadhi with my family, which included 3 teenagers and 2 adults (who behaved like teenagers). The villa itself was beautiful, but what made the stay really memorable were the staff who were nothing less than warm, accommodating and genuinely friendly people.

We had in-villa massages, went white water rafting, snorkeling in the villa's boat, had yoga next to the pool... it was absolute heaven! :)

Pemuteran is located in the north west part of Bali. It is an area of natural beauty, away from the tourist crowds in the south of the island. The bay of Pemuteran is surrounded by mountains of the Barat National park. In front you have the Bali sea, that is free of current and perfect for swimming. Here you will find the largest area of shallow coral reefs in Bali, with some unique conservation projects. Menjangan Island as top diving and snorkeling spot is within easy reach. The views are magnificent. To the east of the bay the sun rises over Pulaki temple and the sun sets over the volcanoes on Java. You can reach the famous Ijen crater on a day-trip. Pemuteran is a spiritual place with special energy. You will find some of the most important temples of Bali. Although the area is not crowded, there are many good restaurants and resorts available. Other spots like Lovina or the rain forests around Munduk in the mountains are within easy reach.

Other Activities: Traditional Boat at the villa
