About Rossella Conti
We are a family of five from Italy and the USA but have lived in Asia for over 10 years. We value privacy and undisturbed quality time together in beautiful, relaxing settings and wish the same experience for our guests. The activities we most enjoy are reading, beach walks, swimming, surfing, tennis, diving, and gourmet dining. The property we have constructed offers the perfect opportunity to enjoy these activities in a private and spectacular surrounding.
Rossella Conti purchased this Estate in 2014
Why Rossella Conti chose Selemadeg
The attraction to the ocean motivated the owners' dream to develop a beachfront home. The 7,000 square meter land plot was acquired in 2008, and Inspiral Architecture and Design Studios was commissioned to create a structure faithful to both local ideals and the aesthetic values of the owners. Overseen by a UK construction manager and finished in 2014, the property was lovingly built over a four year period using local labor and traditional methods. Landscaping was completed by a Dutch artist and landscape architect. All joinery is reclaimed teak and ironwood or sustainable plantation teak.
What makes this Estate unique
The land itself on which the property is built is remarkable: the beach is not accessible to others unless it's low tide, and even then only a few local fishermen and lobster hunters will pass through. The grotto on the right-hand side of the beach is a place of romance and adventure, and passing through it will bring you to a beach with a different feel, with extraordinary rock formations and exotic views. To the left-hand side of the beach lies another, much longer beach, accessible at low tide, that is fantastic for walking and shell-seeking. The views one can enjoy from each room in the house are spectacular and ever-changing, depending on the room, the sun or the clouds and the intensity of the sunset. The property is big enough that one can at any time feel they have enough personal space, even when the house is full. Whether it is relaxing in your own terrace or deck, taking a swim in the pool, walking through the coconut grove, watching the waves from the cabana, playing a tennis match barefoot on the grass court, lounging in the living room or enjoying a massage-- there is always a place to go where it feels like nobody else is around. The staff, entirely from the local area, is very kind and personable and the chef cooks delicious, fresh and gourmet food every day. It is a pleasure to discuss the next day's meals with the chef, and sitting down at lunch and dinner is always a lovely experience.

Fabulous views, great location away from the crowds
This is authentic Bali -- far from the cheek-to-jowl crowds of the southern tourist areas, you are welcomed as though you were coming back home to family. The property manager (Putu) the chef (Wayan) and the driver (Maddy) simply couldn't do enough to make one feel welcome and to not just attend to but anticipate my requests and preferences in the most friendly and gracious way possible. Pair that up with a near-private beach (itinerant fisherman wander by now and then), a lovely pool, beautiful grounds, sunsets over the ocean framed by palms, and comfortable Balinese-style furnishings, and you'll be elated that you avoided the worst of Bali and found the best!
We had a good time.
We stayed 4 nights, the organisation went perfectly. When ever we needed Rossella she was there for us. We had a lot of fun playing tennis! The view was fantastic.
We greatly appreciate this review.
Thank you for your kindness and thank you again for choosing The Cove Bali!!
I WILL RETURN!
Staying at The Cove truly defines a “vacation”. If you enjoy the sound of waves lulling you to sleep, delicious Balinese food, beautiful vistas in every direction, beyond stunning sunsets and a complete household staff on call to assist in any and every way, The Cove should be on your “Bucket List”. My time at The Cove was more than I ever imagined.
Thank you so much for this lovely review! We are so happy to know you had a good time at The Cove Bali. We hope to see you again soon in the Island of the Gods.
Dreams do come true
Just book it will not regret. Amazing house and view and the waves at night was so smoothing. The staff was amazing and can't say enough about the cook who amazed us with all of our requests. If you love seafood she can cook the best same day fresh. No words can say enough for this house and the private beach we enjoyed so much. We collected some many nice shells from the beach. House was very open for large group and felt like you had so much room. Only regret was we had to leave. Special thanks to Putu for being a amazing host.
Thank you for this beautiful review! We are so happy to hear you had a good time at The Cove. On behalf of all of us, we wish you all the best and hope to see you back in Bali!
We cannot say enough how we enjoyed our stay. From the moment we were picked up at the airport, to the return. The entire staff was so gracious. The FOOD! Wayan went out of her way every single day with every single meal! Putu made sure everything went smoothly and that we were all comfortable.
For those who like a cool temperature room, it’s air conditioned, but not what we are use to. (USA). Keep the drapes closed during late afternoon and the air on.
Unfortunately, there are people building a villa next door. But, there’s so much beauty to see, I guess it must be shared!
We would highly recommend the Cove to anyone!
Thank you for your review.
We were so happy to have you and your party as guests!
Hoping you will come back.
All the best form all of us at The Cove.
Best ever family holiday
The villa accommodated all 12 of us most comfortably. Our chef, whose name I have unfortunately forgotten, was excellent and produced not only an extensive breakfast daily but a dinner to a cost agreed in advance, and to a menu also agreed. The staff were helpful and we were well looked after. Two earthquakes added to the excitement. The garden and pool were great.
Thank you for your great review!
We hope to see you back at The Cove Bali someday.
The Cove is absolutely private, immersed in nature and coconut trees, yet it is a 5 minutes drive away from Balian village with its bars and restaurants catering to the expatriate surfer and yoga community.
The area of Balian is well known for its unspoiled beauty and consistent surf waves, and has emerged as a destination for visitors and residents wishing to avoid congested areas and to experience the unrushed atmosphere of the Bali of years past.
Excursions include visits to pristine rice paddies, traditional villages, colorful local markets, and ancient temple ceremonies.
Mt. Batukaru, Pan Pacific Nirwana Golf Course, Pupuan, Medewi and Menjangan Island with its world class diving are all easy day trips from The Cove.
