About the property

Unbeatable Location on Umeanyar Beach & BEST View in North Bali

Villa Banyan, Umeanyar, is a recently built, fully serviced, luxury vacation rental destination on the northern coast of Bali. The unique property is set 30 meters above sea level on a small cliff directly in front of Umeanyar Beach. The huge villa (700 sq-metre living space) has 4 master and main bedrooms and an additional family bedroom. It is fully equipped with a large kitchen including all modern appliances, a spacious living and media room, a huge infinity pool, and various lounge areas, balconies and terraces to benefit from the vast and breath-taking scenery of this unique spot. The villa is surrounded by 3400sq. metres of terraced tropical gardens on three levels. There are two Bale Bengongs (Gazebos) built directly into the cliff with stunning views over the blue ocean and the vivid green rice paddies stretching right up to the edge of the black volcanic sand beach of the Bali Sea. An old majestic fig tree gives shade and lends the villa its name. The centre of the L-shaped house with its large infinity pool opens to the green zone of the village. Being without direct neighbours, the property is an ideal location for ultimate privacy and relaxation experience. Yet, it is still very close to a variety of local & international restaurants and the smaller resorts of the area.

The Villa

The generously spaced villa offers 700sq. metres of living space covered with traditional Alang-Alang roof. It is designed in a unique combination of modern and traditional Balinese architectural elements. The property offers the best of Balinese hospitality with European standards through luxury, refinement, modernity, design, space and comfort. In 5 air-conditioned bedrooms we can accommodate up to 10 guests. There are 4 master and main bedrooms all with ocean views and en-suite bathrooms featuring modern appliances. An additional bedroom is dedicated to younger guests and can be connected to either of two bedrooms on the ground floor.

The en-suite bathrooms have modern European appliances and are constructed from natural materials: teak wood cabinets, Terrazzo tops and nature stone flooring. The master baths have a private garden with palm trees and decorative and soothing water wall statues. Other amenities include bathrobes, slippers, hair dryers in each bathroom and our banyan villa signature series 'Jardin d´Umeanyar' of organic soap, shower gel, shampoo and hair conditioner etc.

The modern living / media room has a new 50' LCD TV with more than 130 International channels (Satelite), a DVD player with surround sound system and a media player with more than 800 international movies. Of course we have a wireless “Hot Spot” with unlimited and free WIFI access. For the little ones we offer a Play Station 3 with fun games to keep them busy, and give you more time to relax.

The huge 18x6 m infinity pool is embedded in a 100 sq-metre natural stone deck. The pool is family-friendly with wide walk-in steps that are excellent for those needing a gentle entry, or for the little ones to play on. There are 3 depth levels so that you can take real morning laps if you wish. At the corners of the infinity side, which is close to the edge of the cliff, there is underwater seating, so you can enjoy the beautiful view and/ or your cocktail without having to tread water at the same time.


To make sure the villa is running smoothly there are 7 dedicated English-speaking staff members. 1 helpdesk, 2 cook /housekeeper, 2 gardeners, 1 security guard and 1 driver.

Airport Pick Up & Return Transportation costs 50€ per way for up to 8 people. During your stay the villas own luxury van with driver for up to 8 guests can be rented for shopping and tours in the area. The first lunch or dinner (depending on arrival time) and breakfast on the first morning after check-in are included in the rental price. Upon arrival you will receive a welcome fruit basket and a basic stock of soft drinks and beer. Groceries for your meals can be bought by yourself or organised through our shopping service. Our cook can prepare your breakfast, lunch and dinner, which you may choose in advance from a menu. For this you only pay for the ingredients, which are happily organised by the staff against receipt and for a tiny transportation fee. Of course, if you wish, you may also use our car with driver to do the grocery shopping yourself (most guests don´t). There is a well-stocked supermarket just 3 minutes from the villa in the centre of Seririt.

About Mr J. Thomas

German / French family. As enthusiastic travellers we have stayed in many villa vacation rentals over the years. Now we finally found the perfect location for our own dream villa.

Mr J. Thomas purchased this villa in 2014

Why Mr J. Thomas chose Bali

The House is huge and very special. It significantly differs from other vacation rentals in the area. We have more than 600 sq metres of living space, double or triple the size of most Villas. The location is unbeatable: set on a small cliff close to the beach and not surrounded by other Villas or buildings you will get unblocked 270° panoramic views, not only of the Beach and the deep blue ocean, but also of the so called green zone of the Village with magnificant rice paddies, temples and vine yards. From all of our 4 bedrooms you will have great ocean views. All bedrooms are with ACs, Fans and en-suite bathrooms. The 2 master bedrooms have an additional 30 sq metre private balcony or terrace. For guests with small children we offer an additional kids room which can be accessed from either of two parents bedrooms. Child seat, Stokke High-chair, toys, baby phone, baby cot etc. are also available of course.

What makes this villa unique

Due the unique location of the Villa you are not disturbed from bypassing Beach goers and you will enjoy total privacy in your pool or while having dinner on your panorama terrace. Yet, you have quick access to the Beach to enjoy the fine black Lava sand of Lovina Bay and go for a swim.The Villa is surrounded by a lush tropical garden developed into multiple levels. There are two Bale´s (Pavillons) built into the cliff, one is located on sunrise side and one on sunset side; both are offering a perfect place for relaxation while listening to the ocean waves.The north of the island is very different to the south with its hustle and bustle. Depending on the traffic, especially around the airport, it can take over three hours to cross the island and get to the villa. But once out of Denpasar it is a beautiful drive through sculptured rice paddies, plantations and rain forest. There are many opportunities for a stop on the way, for example to visit the botanical garden in Bedugul, check out famous temples or taste the excellent Bali coffee.

Stunningly Beautiful, Amazing Luxury

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing trip to Lovina, staying here. First, the location is spectacular. You are about 200M from the beach with only rice fields between you and the water. The beach was nearly completely free of tourist and only some local families there on our many walks down the drive to the water.

The house was unreal. One of the most beautiful homes I have ever had the pleasure of visiting. Each room with a breathtaking view. The small touches, such as the fountains in the outside showers were amazing.

The staff was by far the best part. Not only were they exceedingly friendly and helpful, but they quickly learned our family and were able to anticipate our needs. For example, we liked to get up and swim first thing in the morning. Watching the sunrise from the pool was a great luxury. The team realized we did this and would have the pool chairs setup and towels laid out before first light so when we got out of the pool everything was easy. Meals were great, they were really helpful with our two year olds. Day trips were greatly enhanced by freely shared local knowledge. And the team has no problem humoring my attempts to try every new (to me) tropical fruit I could get my hands on--many of which I had no idea how to clean or eat.

The family is excited about a return trip to Bali and couldn't imagine staying anywhere else.

lovely place to stay

  • 5 of 5

The lovely villa combines luxury, friendly staff and a wonderful remote spot to spend some very relaxed days off the beaten tracks in Bali. All people are very caring without being intrusive. All booking and information processes were handled in a very professional way. Nothing to complaint but a lot to recommend. We will be coming back.

Villa Banyan is amazing- peaceful and beautiful

  • 5 of 5

We were impressed again each day of our stay by the views of the sea over the rice and marigold fields and grape arbors. We definitely would give five stars to the large bedrooms and baths. The pool was also wonderful. We were not a large group (2 couples) but greatly appreciated how well laid the villa would be to accommodate much larger groups (including children). The best part of our stay at villa was by far the staff, who unobtrusively took excellent care of us throughout our stay. In particular, the lunches and dinners at Villa Banyan were among the very best we had during our three week trip to Thailand, Cambodia and Indonesia. Finally, the owner was extremely helpful in helping us organize our visit. We are already planning when we might return to Villa Banyan.

Wonderful Stay at Villa Banyan!!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I just finished a wonderful 4 night stay at Villa Banyan. Everything about this Villa is excellent and it is more beautiful than any pictures can ever capture. The entire Villa staff is amazing. So friendly and helpful. The Villa property has breathtaking views of the ocean and rice fields below. The Owner was very responsive to all our questions since this was our first visit to Bali. We absolutely loved our stay at this luxurious Villa!

Villa Banyan eine Traum Luxus Villa

  • 5 of 5

Villa Banyan, ein Traum wurde war. Wir waren eine Reisegruppe von 8 Personen.

Die Abholung vom Flughafen Ngurah Rai International Airport (Denpasar) klappte hervorragend. Der Fahrer Sumerta wartete dort schon auf uns. Mit dem Van der Villa ging es dann in den Norden. Die Fahrt dauert ca. 3,5 - 4 Stunden.

Am Ziel angekommen entschädigten die Eindrücke die lange Fahrtzeit.

Das Haus ist beeindruckend, die Empfangshalle, Wohnbereich und die große Küche.

Der erste Blick war natürlich der Außenbereich mit dem riesigen Pool.

Am nächsten Tag lernten wir dann den Rest der Staff kennen, Ariana, die Köchin, Suryana der Hauskeeper, sowie den Securitymann und die beiden Gärtner.

Es wurde jeden Morgen ein schönes Frühstück gezaubert, immer mit frischem Saft, sowie Früchten und eggs to order.

Aus einem reichhaltigen Angebot, kann man sich auch das Abendessen zusammenstellen lassen. Ariana hat es dann für uns zubereitet.

Das Haus liegt auf einer Anhöhe, so dass man einen wunderschönen Blick auf das Meer hat.

Ausflüge unternimmt man mit dem Fahrer Sumerta, im übrigen ein Allrounder, spricht gutes Englisch, kennt viele Ecken und hat überall ein Familienmitglied sitzen, man kennt ihn halt in Nord Bali.

Tauchgänge bucht man am besten bei "ARROW DIVE" in Lovina.

Wracktauchen in Tulamben (USAT LIBERTY) und unbedingt Menjangan Island besuchen, sehr schönes Schnorchel und Tauchgebiet.

Ubud ist auf alle Fälle ein Besuch wert, sowie die

Sekumpul Waterfalls. Ein beschwerlicher Weg dort hin und auch wieder zurück, aber es lohnt sich, baden inklusive. Sumerta ist mit uns diesen Weg auch zum ersten Mal mitgegangen.

Massagen kann man ebenfalls buchen (10€/Std.)

Dieser Villa kann man unbedenklich 5 Sterne vergeben. Luxus pur. Der Vermieter kümmert sich auch um das Wohlergehen seiner Gäste während unseren Aufenthals in der Villa. Das Personal ist einsame Spitze, alle sehr bemüht und den Urlaub so schönwiemöglich zu gestalten. Sauberkeit war 1a.

Vielen Dank für die schöne Zeit auf Bali

Nearest Airport

Nearest Restaurant
50 Metres
Zen Resort
Nearest Beach
270 Metres
Umeanyar Beach

The property is set 30 meters above sea level on a small cliff, just 270m from the beach. The location offers you a 'million dollar' view with a background of deep blue ocean, green rice paddies and vineyards stretching out in front of the cliff right up to the coastline. Being without direct neighbors the villa is ideal for an ultimate relaxation experience. In contrast to some of the beachfront locations you will benefit from the proximity of the beach without the potential of hawkers, touts, or occasional weekend overcrowding spoiling the party. With its amenities and unique panorama you will find it hard to tear yourself away from the villa and the huge infinity pool. If you do manage, however, there are plenty of things to see and do. Many attractions are quite close to the villa, while for others you may need a half or whole day off your time. Our helpdesk person will gladly assist you in planning and booking tours, and our driver will bring you there safely.

Here are just a few ideas of activities you may want to pursue (in alphabetical order):

Bali Barat National Park

Balinese cooking classes

Banjar Hot Springs

Buddhist monastery Brahma Vihara Arama

Dolphin Watching

Handara Golf & Country Club

Hiking, biking or scooter driving
