Seminyak is h e c t i c . There is no better word to describe it. However, a lot of Bali’s coolest restaurants and beach clubs such as Sisterfields, Revolver, Motel Mexicola, Ku De Ta and Potato Head are in Seminyak, which means staying in the area a necessary evil.
Finding accommodation that is down the quiet back streets, away from the noise but that is still close to the hustle should be first priority in planning your Seminyak adventures.
Enter Villa Kubu – your luxury private villa and perfect HQ to conquer up all of your epic Bali exploits.
Villa Kubu takes full advantage of Bali’s perfect weather. The entire villa is focused on enjoying outside life to the max with the villa’s massive outdoor lounge area. It is made up of an open but undercover lounge with giant wrap around couches and a mighty Bluetooth Bose stereo right next to the large private swimming pool. This multipurpose space is great for an array of activities such as hosting your own exclusive pool parties, a base for pre-drinks, general chilling or to decompress after clubbing with late night swims. Actually, anytime is a great time for a night-swim – club or sans club.
We stayed in the Premium Two Bedroom Villa which came with dreamy king sized beds draped in pretty mosquito nets, epic air-conditioning and lots of tucked away storage. Each room had large stone outdoor bathrooms with both a shower and a bath – I can never get sick of how beautiful bathrooms like these are at night time.
Additionally Villa Kubu’s onsite ‘Venus Spa‘ has treatments for all your needs from facials to waxes – all of which are able to be enjoyed either in the luxury day spa or in the privacy of your villa. You can never get sick of Balinese massages. Never.
Of course the friendly staff also had lots of tips and advice to planning external day trips. On one of the days we were there we went to the famous Waterbom Water Park!
As mentioned, Kubu provided a great base to explore Seminyak. The cheapest and funnest form of transport is getting to and from the estate is a bike taxi (Vespa) – the drivers on the street are constantly yelling ‘bike, bike, bike’ as you walk past and it is up to you to negotiate a sweet price. Don’t get ripped off!
In my humble opinion, Villa Kubu make it far too easy to feel spoilt while planning wild adventures around Seminyak. So much so that it is hard to go back to normal ‘inside-and-sans-pool’ living.
Stop it Kubu, you have ruined post Bali life for me.
Kubu is in the heart of Seminyak so access there is pretty easy via taxi. They do offer a concierge service which includes the option to organise drivers.
After Kubu we went on a lovely expedition to the island of Lombok where we stayed at Villa Tugu!
