Resting in a coconut grove beside the vast and deserted Pasut Beach, 18 kilometres west of Tanah Lot, is the enchanting two-bedroom hideaway known as Villa Laut. The place is atmospheric; it feels special, mystical and serene. Positioned beside the crashing surf of the Indian Ocean, the land emanates a tangible energy. There is a feeling of harmony with the environment and all of nature’s elements.
Handcrafted from ironwood, with a traditional Torajan boat-shaped roof, a delightful garden and a swimming pool, this beachfront villa in Bali was designed entirely by its architect-artist owners, and is a true labour of love. Here, eclectic, antique-chic interiors and furnishings are blended with colourful funky artefacts and decorations, both indoors and out, while the glorious rural views take in the neighbouring rice fields, the distant mountains, and the sea.
Black ironwood forms the structure of this Bali beach house, which is characterised by huge glass picture windows looking out towards the sea at the front and to the rice fields on one side. The villa is entered via a magnificent stone-carved gateway; its vertical pillars featuring figures decorated with shells, while its horizontal beam is fashioned in the shape of a stone-carved boat. Inside you will be charmed by the retro furniture, and outside you will be enticed by the 12-metre swimming pool and beachfront deck.
The owners’ desire is to give guests an authentic and unforgettable experience in a setting far removed from the hustle and bustle of tourism, with the opportunity to explore a traditional side of rural Bali. Here, guests will be looked after by a small team of staff, including a housekeeper, a butler and a cook, whose genuine service, sincerity and grace, will both surprise and delight. There are no TVs at the villa, the concept here is nature and the great outdoors.
Villa Laut, (the name means ‘sea’) is ideally suited for a two couples or a small family, or perhaps a writer or an artist looking for inspiration,
This single-storey beachside villa in Bali is small but perfectly formed, comprising two bedrooms, two ensuite bathrooms, and a compact living and dining room with an integrated kitchen, and ironwood floors throughout. The villa is surrounded by a partially walled garden and a 12-metre freeform swimming pool, incorporating a kids’ pool and surrounded by a stone pool deck. A few footsteps beyond this is a 100-square-metre, absolutely-beachfront timber deck.
Indoor Living & Dining
Ornate stepping stones lead through the garden and directly into the villa’s air-conditioned living and dining room. The furnishings here are oriented towards the garden and rice fields, the swimming pool and the ocean beyond. Huge glass windows create the feeling of being outdoors, or the doors can be opened for a semi-alfresco experience, cooled by sea breezes. The sitting area is characterised by retro antique Parisienne furnishings in the style of Felix Monge, including two leather armchairs, a cabinet with a porthole window, and a leather chaise longue. Additionally, a large chest doubles as a coffee table and is decorated with a Union Jack design. From the soaring roof hangs a chandelier of copper lanterns, while an authentic Toraja house panel rests above the integrated kitchen area, featuring auspicious carved patterns designed to drive away evil influences. In fact, the heavy black ironwood pillars, carved figures, screens and wall panels between the rooms are all highly decorative, with a story behind each recycled piece. In the centre of the living and dining room is a table for four lit by a futuristic chandelier. Next to this is a compact but well-equipped kitchen compete with a two-door fridge, a coffee machine, an oven and a five-burner gas hob.
Outdoor Living Areas
A highly decorative carved concrete wall borders the pretty flower-filled garden on three sides and tells a pictorial story of monkeys, owls, and birds and beasts of the forest. In the front garden is a 12 x 8 metre freeform swimming pool lined with mosaic tiles and incorporating a small children’s pool, shaded by towering coconut palms and bordered by a stone deck furnished with poolside garden furniture including two sun loungers. Beyond the pool and positioned directly on the beach is a 100-square-metre timber deck, also shaded by coconut palms, furnished with bean bags and completed with a Torajan-style, thatched roof relaxation pavilion. The views from here of the expansive dark sand beach and coastline are spectacular.
The two air-conditioned bedrooms are equal in size, and each is accessed from either side of the living room via double carved doors. Bedroom One offers gorgeous views of the pool, garden and beach, and in both bedrooms guests will be lulled to sleep by the rhythmic rumble of the waves. Each has a double bed, a large trunk at the end of the bed, and a private ensuite bathroom with a vanity unit supporting a single washbasin, a funky mirror, a modern colonial-style toilet, and a walk-in glass encased overhead rainshower with a handheld option. Bedroom One has the additional choice of a separate, sunny, glass-roofed bathroom with yellow and white Javanese-style tiles, and an opulent soaking tub. Both bedrooms are completed with an eclectic mix of furnishings and Asian artefacts, including a Chinese antique cabinet, a desk, a Chinese Buddha, copper lanterns, and a lamp fashioned from a model sailing boat.

The drive from the airport to Villa Laut is a wonderful introduction to Balinese village life, passing rice fields, crossing rivers and negotiating pot-holed country lanes, before arriving at this charming villa beside the sea and an expansive black sand surf beach. In fact, Tabanan has a 30-kilometre-long coastline, which reveals isolated coves and rocky outcrops, as well as the famous surf beaches of Medewi and Balian, offering the longest point breaks in Bali. The beaches are sloping and lovely to walk along; while the black sand is regarded for its curative, therapeutic properties and is especially helpful for arthritis.
The Tabanan Regency is known as Bali’s ‘rice bowl’ – the most agriculturally productive region on the island, with rice fields stretching from the coast to as high as 700 metres above sea level, where the terraces are reminiscent of amphitheatres. Besides rice, there are crops of coconuts, coffee, cacao, spices and tropical fruits. This area is also home to Mount Batukaru (2276m), the higher slopes of which are alpine, with mountain streams, ferns, wildflowers, creepers and orchids, as well as the rare, black, leaf-eating monkey, the kijang (small forest deer), large butterflies and moths, flying lizards, the landak (porcupine) and the lubak (mongoose). The area is also a bird watchers’ paradise, habitat of the Bali black eagle.
There are no western-style shops or bars in this area, and restaurants serving international cuisine are few and far between, mainly adjoined to the region’s limited number of small and remote hotels, of which Alila Villas Soori (6.4 kilometres by road or 2.5 kilometres (30 minutes’ walk) along the beach) is the closest to the villa.
• The discrete, ‘no-kids’, five star Alila Villas Soori Resort, which is just 30 minutes’ walk along the beach, opens its fine dining restaurant and open-air sunset bar to non-residents.
• The rugged black-sand beach and river estuary offers beautiful walks and this stretch of coastline is popular with surfers (but there are strong rip currents and no life guards on the beach so it’s not really safe for swimming).
• Religious ceremonies at the village temple are not an uncommon sight.
• Tanah Lot is a dramatic and venerated sea temple, perched on a craggy wave-lashed rock just at the edge of the glistening black shoreline. It is probably the most photographed sight in Bali, especially in the late afternoon when its splendid profile is silhouetted against the setting sun.
• Play a round at the unbelievably scenic Nirwana Bali Golf Course. Bordered by ocean and rice fields and just down from Tanah Lot sea temple, no wonder this championship-standard course (designed by golf legend, Greg Norman) is frequently voted number one in Asia.
• Explore the charming Tabanan Regency, revealing terraced rice fields of emerald green, volcanic mountains and black-sand beaches dotted with fishing communities.
• The beautiful and desolate dark sand beach of Yeh Gangga is totally devoid of tourists. The currents make it unsafe for swimming, but where the river empties into the sea to the east there is a safe and refreshing spot where you can swim.
• Situated 7km from Tabanan town, the Bali Butterfly Park is a place to get up close and personal with a number of beautiful species.
• You may wish to visit the breathtaking panorama of the Jatiluwih rice terraces, which has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2008 for its preservation of traditional Balinese farming techniques. At a height of 850m above sea level, the view here is one of the finest imaginable.
• Another activity is hiking and relishing spectacular views in Bali’s volcanic hinterlands; the 2276m Mt Batukau is the island’s second highest peak, and the area around this mountain boasts the greatest biological diversity in Bali. Here, local guides lead visitors on anything from gentle hikes through the food forests and jungle, to challenging treks.
• Horse lovers can ride from Bali Island Horse stables located in the village of Yeh Gangga. The scenery is beautiful in this peaceful village, where rice farming, fishing and sea salt harvesting are the main activities. One of the rides offers an opportunity to swim with the horses.
• There are many ancient temples in the area including Pura Luhur Batukaru, the stone coconut temple near the peak of Mt Batukaru, (accessible by car), which venerates the deities of mountains and lakes.
• You can also visit two palaces, Puri Gede and Puri Anyar at the former royal town of Krambitan.
If you are interested in excursions further afield, the staff will be more than happy to offer advice and arrange everything for you. All you have to do is sit back and enjoy your holiday.
