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 Pemuteran

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

We spent 6 nights at Villa Semadhi in September. Our criteria was: quiet, snorkelling, and relaxing. The villa fulfilled this and more.

The view on entering the villa brought gasps and sighs at the thought that we would have this to ourselves for almost a week!

The rooms were spotless and spacious, with quirky outdoor bathrooms and decor that was a mix of Balinese and European.

We spent many hours relaxing by the wet edge pool, lazing in the massage pavilion and, when the mood took us, taking a bike ride into the village or wandering to the temples close by.

Puspa and his staff were amazing. We were looked after with utmost care, but it did not feel intrusive. We really enjoyed speaking with Puspa each morning to plan our day and get an insight into the culture and community of Pemuteran.

Massages and snorkelling trips were arranged for us. At one stage I remember looking up as I snorkeled and marvelled that we were the only people on that reef - we had that amazing place to ourselves!

The food, prepared by Jero, was incomparable. While we did go into the village for a couple of lunches, we quickly found that we couldn't go past the meals we could get right at the villa. We fell in love with Balinese food and believe we got to experience food that was tasty and of top quality.

While the road trip from the south is a bit of a journey, it was entirely worth it for an experience that we won't forget.

Thank you to Jane and Bernard and to your staff: our holiday was fantastic and we highly recommend it.

Heavenly Hideaway with Angels on staff!

  • 5 of 5

I was in charge of finding lodging for myself and two esteemed colleagues during our stay in Bali. Let me assure you that Villa Semadhi did not disappoint.

From the moment of arrival to the day of departure we were enthralled with the beauty and elegance of Villa Semadhi. The staff was helpful and available to meet all of our requests and needs. Having a private driver, Made, who really knew the area was invaluable. It was hard to leave the beautiful Villa to take day excursions as it is so blissfully beautiful and peaceful, yet Made made it fun and exciting. Puspa, the property manager, was kind and full of recommendations when asked. I would be completely remiss not to mention the deliciously prepared meals by Jero, the private Chef, who takes Balinese dining to a new height. The entire staff was kind, warm, engaging and helpful.

Another fantastic featrure is the informative outline of things to do in the area. I highly recommend the Buddhist Temple which is under reconstruction. It is a real treat. Reef Seen offers snorkeling off of the shore and is a very short distance from the Villa. There is indeed something for everyone! This was truly an A+ experience for me and my colleagues. Perhaps the highest compliment was from my colleague who stated, "If given the choice to stay at the Ritz or Villa Semadhi, I would choose Villa Semadhi!"

Just Relax

  • 5 of 5

The villa was exactly as described and pictured. Everything was cleaned daily. Puspa was wonderful to work with, giving us suggestions on where to go and what to eat and arranging everything for our family of 8. The cooks did an amazing job at every meal, and even met my husbands request for very spicy sambal and other odd dishes that were not on the villa menu. The food was freshly made and the water was safe to drink. The bay was calm, clear, warm, and easy to swim in. We walked to some local warrungs for lunch, and the kids walked to local shops to buy sodas and junk food. If you are looking for a remote area, this is it. You will have to arrange(Puspa will do this for you), to travel anywhere, and expect at least 2 hour drive. The villa has a book that has suggestions on various activities within the surrounding area. Plus, you can have Puspa arrange other trips for you. The pool and the deck over looking the bay were greatly used. I recommend this villa to all families. We felt safe the entire time and all of our wishes were fulfilled by an amazing staff!

If you're looking for relaxation and luxury, than staying at this Villa in Pemuteran is second to none. After staying here, I went on to the Viceroy in Ubud and then the Ritz Carlton in Hong Kong. This property was the best of the three places I stayed at during my travels. The Villa has everything you need and plenty of space. The staff and the food are amazing. There is really nothing but positives I can offer about my stay.

Unbelievable luxury villa with amazing staff!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I have stayed at luxury hotels and villas all over the world and this is by far the nicest place we have ever stayed. Every detail is thought of and the service and support of the staff were excellent. It is 1000x better in person and truly a very special place. It's 3.5 hours from the airport which keeps the tourists at bay. We felt like we had a unique Ball experience and explored lots of the recommendations in the villa's to-do guide. This place is truly amazing - I have zero suggestions or complaints! We stayed for 2 weeks and I could have stayed 2 more!

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.

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.
