Villa Rama Rama (Butterfly) is a huge beautiful Spa villa (8800ft2 living space). At 480ft above sea level, enjoy breath-taking views of Bali throughout the villa. All 5 double bedrooms have en suite bathrooms with rain showers and oversize corner baths. The master suite itself is over 1000 Ft2 with a huge balcony. As a personal favorite, sit outside on the pool deck (first floor) enjoy the beautiful breezes, whilst having your favorite music playing on the cinema screen in the background. Villa comes with complementary broadband and fully staffed for housekeeping and driving etc (and complimentary use of the luxury 7 seater 4x4).
Also included in the price are transfers, water/tea/coffee, daily breakfast banquet and a sumptuous welcome BBQ of seafood and meats (in house cooks at the villa are outstanding and their food really is some of the best you'll taste in Bali) for stays of 4 nights and over. All other meals can be prepared by the cook Dayu, who cooks the most delicious food, all at cost.
Kuta is around 15 minutes away, so close enough when you do want to get there, but far enough away as you may want. Your surrounded by undoubtedly the best beaches in Bali all 10 mins away. If you want to Google what they look like, search Balangan, Padang Padang (my favorite), Jimbaran, Geger and secret beach to name a few. There's also beach clubs around in little coves that are fantastic for chill out days with DJ’s etc.
If children are part of the group, we lived at the villa for extended periods as a family with our own kids (now 5 and 8), hence you'll be happy to know that its very child friendly and has facilities including cots, baby baths, high chair's if very young, toys they can use, a play station if older, and all kids love to watch movies on the 12ft screen cinema projector. The staff have also been with us for 8 years and are amazing with kids, hence if you want to go out for a meal, or just a in house massage in the spa in peace, you can do so. We actually left our children for 5 days while we attended a friends wedding in Sydney.
To tell you more about the villa, on the ground floor there is a private suite with four-poster bed. Outside you have the beautiful enchanted garden, lush with fruit trees, and our spa (yes you don¹t even have to travel for a exceptional, yet bargain massage). Other facilities on the ground floor are for the staff or private.
The first floor is where you will be amazed by the view. There are 2 guest rooms with king size heavenly beds and feather down pillows to aid your horizontal relaxation. You will enjoy the cool breezes of the tropical living the design indoors merging with the outside seamlessly. All bathrooms as mentioned have huge corner baths and rain showers. There is a fully equipped large kitchen if you do feel the urge to cook, however 100% of guests have commented that the cook does prepare some of the best food in Bali (and all at market prices). You have the large infinity pool and of course the grand gazebo where you can enjoy the Balinese design concept of man, nature and harmony to laze and relax or simply practice another local custom you¹ll adopt quickly - the afternoon siesta. In the evening sit out under the stars listening to your favorite music (a 30GB iPod is available at the villa with a wide selection of music). If you fancy a movie the cinema projectors 12ft screen with surround sound will give you an excellent cinematic experience.
Upstairs you have the children¹s room with bunk beds and baby cots are available. There is the 4-meter long dining table seating 16. Then there is of course the Master. As usual there is the feather down pillows put also a Super King size, super comfy bed. The room is huge at around 1000 sq.ft. With a huge plasma (and play station 3 if interested), satellite and big comfy sofa. The best feature though is the private balcony two 3 seater sofas are there, glass surround, and the view is off the whole of Bali it really is like your stood on a cliff top – breathtaking.
We are surrounded by the best beaches in Bali, including where the beach scenes for (Eat, Pray, Love) with Julia Roberts was filmed. There is also a plethora of restaurants in the area and award winning CNN Top 30 Bar in the World¹ The Rock Bar is just down the road (a must). Others you might want to look up are 'Fins beach club', 'Nammos beach club', and 'kelapa Dreamland' all within 10 mins.
Please also enjoy our dedicated spa’s comprehensive range of packages to complete your pampering. Indulge ;-)

Huge 5 bed spa villa - G8 views/ b'fast + BBQ incl Jimbaran, Bali, Indonesia
Additional Location Information
Nestled on top of ‘The Bukit’ (and only 20 min from the airport and 5 min from Jimbaran) , Villa Rama Rama is an idyllic retreat away from the toils of urban life. At 480ft above sea level, villas enjoy breathtaking views, whilst being only a stones throw away from some of the best beaches on the island (Dream land, Balangan, Padang Padang, Jimbaran to name but a few). The position high on the hill can mean the temperature is a couple of degrees cooler, allowing you to enjoy the refreshing breezes in comfort. Views are outstanding whether looking over Bali during the day with the volcanoes, or looking at the lights over Bali in the evening. Due to the clear air and lack on air or noise pollution, the skies at night can be absolutely breathtaking. You will be positioned in a great location for activities, attractions and entertainment, but most renters so far absolutely love to spend some quality time at the villa, with the views, an amazing spa, fantastic staff and exceptional food.

From the moment we were picked up by Dewa until he delivered us to our next destination, our time at this villa was amazing. Such a warm and welcoming couple who looked after us with kindness and patience. Dewa spent many hours driving us all over the "Bukit" and Deyu did a superb job feeding us delicious meals. Each day Deyu would scoot off to the market and we only needed to pay for produce. We can highly recommend the astounding Seafood BBQ !
The villa is beautifully maintained with very generous bedrooms, huge bathrooms and - oh that pool ! What a view - straight towards the airport on one side and the harbour on the other. Imagine - lolling in an infiniti pool watching the world fly in and out - without a care in the world !!! pure heaven.
Then - there is the Spa ! Just a phone call away, you can relax and enjoy a massage in the purpose built Spa Room, complete with waterfall, music & couches.
We can highly recommend this beautiful butterfly villa to anyone looking for a quiet retreat on top of the world .

We had the most wonderful time at Villa Rama Rama. We were 2 families (1 family with 2 children aged 7 & 9 and the other family with 3 children aged 6, 4 & 1) and the villa was perfect for us!!
We travelled from England and our friends from NZ - the villa was huge, and very baby/toddler friendly. There was enough space not to get on top of each other and Dee and Dewa were amazing. What a treat to have EVERY meal catered - we felt thoroughly spoilt - in fact it was such a luxury to have Dee cook all our food (and clear it all up) it's going to be hard to beat!! The food was all delicious
I don't normally get holiday blues, but when it came time to leave I really wasn't ready and am still thinking about the great time we had with our friends at Villa Rama Rama!! It worked really well with young children, it's not particularly close to a town/restaurants but that wasn't a problem for us!!
Don't be put off by arriving up an off beaten track - the villa is beautiful and Dee and Dewa are great staff (and not at all intrusive) and all in all it was a holiday that's created lovely memories

We all just wanted to let you know that we had the best stay and all came back thoroughly relaxed. Dewa and Dayu are absolutely wonderful and looked after us superbly. I can't rate them highly enough. The villa is beautiful and very comfortable - so much so, that we are looking into coming back next year,

We stayed in this beautiful and authentic Balinese villa and we all agree we could not have found a better place to stay to spend our holiday together.
From the day we arrived we were welcomed by Dayu and Dewa who took great care of us the entire week! Their service was excellent and after a few days they already felt like family. We are so happy to have had the chance to spend our holiday with these wonderful people! We only feel gratitude towards them.
Dewa drove us everywhere around Bali in a luxury SUV ( a Toyota Fortuner ) which was included in the rental and he was very helpful to point out all the beautiful spots. Dayu cooked us delicious meals and I must recommend everyone who ever books this villa to try the mixed seafood barbeque. For sure five star quality and more! I still get water in my mouth when I think about her delicious meals! Dewa was also available to go buy the necessary bottles of wine:-) We consumed quite a few...
The villa is set on top of a hill offering splendid views over Bali. Simply breathtaking! What made the villa really special and unique is the little bale on the terrace aside the pool. We all gathered here every evening to have drinks, to talk and to laugh. You can see all the lights in the distance and the wind gives that breeze of freedom. Some nights we sat here until sunrise! Can you imagine?
This villa is ideally situated close to Balangan beach. Dewa will take you there with the SUV. Balangan beach offers white sand and blue ocean 5 minutes away from the villa. True bliss! You can find sun loungers and many local restaurants to have a splendid day out. Sunbathing and surfing is what you get.
New Kuta Golf is also 5 minutes drive away and you must try the 18 holes! We had a blast.
To summarize it all: great location, great villa, great rooms, great service and great facilities.

I and our crew have thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Villa RamaRama
for the last week while here in Bali.
Dewa has been fantastic in overseeing our stay and guiding us around
each day to various excursions.
Diu's hospitality has been professional, friendly and understanding
as she allowed our wives to operate in her kitchen. Both these
people are "Diamonds" in our eyes and no doubt an integral part of
your hosting business. You have a great team of two right here.
We appreciate not worrying about our laundry ironing etcetera.
The vehicle and driver supplied with our deal was an integral part
of our stay as it enabled us to sit back and relax and enjoy the
"traffic chaos" but also realise the special part of balinese culture
of patience and respect for others on the road. It is fantastic to
see a busy culture operating so efficiently.
During this stay here our family was scattered between Caangu,
Semenyak and RamaRama. We invited them up for the day for lunch and
relaxation. They now realise that "RamaRama" is the place to stay.
Some even enjoyed the last couple of days with us as they had to move
out of their villas before their departure.
great stay had by all...charliet
Superb and Elegant House, Amazing Views, Fantastic Service
Left on 12/25/2012 for a stay in October 2012 | Tom Watson
7 friends and I stayed at this villa for four nights in October 2012. From start to finish our time at the villa was luxurious, comfortable and great fun.
The villa is a real hidden away area which means you are certainly out of the hustle and bustle which is tourist Bali. The area contains other luxurious villas and therefore allows a unique form of tranquility.
The villa has 5 bedrooms ( four are queen size beds)- all which a good size and containing an ensuite. The living areas are of great comfort ,including nice lounges and an entertainment package on the first floor ( even a theater screen for movie nights!). The pool are spa area offers an amazing view over Bali (including the ocean, airport and the surrounding area) and I think i'll never forget the first afternoon sitting in the pool, sipping a cold beer and gazing over the amazing view.
I think the highlight of the villa is the included staff- a fantastic and generous couple who were a pleasure to meet. The woman takes care of cooking- she can cook pretty much anything (she cooked me a three-course meal for my birthday including delicious spaghetti bolognase!). It was also so nice to wake up to her bacon and eggs, pancakes and local tropical fruit! All you have to do is give her money for groceries and she does the rest! This lady also takes care of cleaning, everyday keeping the villa in an immaculate condition!
Her husband is the villa's driver, and will drive you around Bali to locations as needed. The villa contains a book with suggestions for hidden special beaches, top tourist sites and local restaurants (yet with the included cook you don't need it!
I can recommend this villa enough, at $400 a night it's an absolute steal (split among 8 it's a lot cheaper than most hotels), you certainly save through the included cook and driver. Had a fantastic time and this will certainly be my first port of call when I'm back in Bali. I'll just have to now persuade 7 friends to come back with me!

Everything from the moment we stepped off out of the airport until we returned was well taken care of by the wonderful staff of Villa Rama Rama (Dewa and Diu). The villa was big and spacious equipped with a nice infinity pool and daybed in the back. The spa villa with 2 beds was convenient for calling in the masseuses at ~$10USD/hr (great way to start or finish off the day).
Diu's cooking was something we looked forward to, better than any restaurants we tried outside. She has an amazing way of knowing exactly when we were hungry. Dewa knew all the places we needed to get to and if he didn't, he made sure he made all the calls so we could arrive seamlessly.
The location was perfect for us as we were attending a wedding in Uluwatu which is only 10 minutes away. Seminyak was about 30 mins drive and the closest beach about 10 minutes drive. It took us just over an hour to get to Ubud which is definitely do-able for a day trip.
As I mentioned, the villa is great value for what it offers. It lacks some of the finer details of staying at a resort such as hairdryers, designer toiletries, etc. The cleaning was sufficient, but understandably the space is large and every corner cannot be spotless. But I cannot repeat enough times that Dewa and Diu outshine any of those things (plus they would have run out in a second to buy them for us if we needed).
All in all we were very happy with the stay and would recommend to others. Read more
Dear Susan, were glad you had a fantastic holiday. Sorry about the lack of hairdryers. I'll make sure we get a couple for guests usage. We hope to welcome you back again someday, Kind Regards, Peter

Our family holiday at Villa Rama Rama was superb. A dream come true for me, to see my children and our spouses and grandchildren become aware of how beautiful Bali is on so many levels; to spend luxurious time together with all our needs very well met.
The house, the surroundings, the excursions to many of the places you recommended were all great experiences; but over and above them all was the wonderful service that Dewa and Diu gave to us. They spoilt us all with their many kindnesses and sensitivity to our individual and group needs. Diu is a wonderful cook and Dewa a great driver and both of them fonts of valuable information as well as providers of great laughs.
So thanks again for all your suggestions and support and providing such a great holiday home.

This is such a wonderful haven. You have found it, stop searching.
Dewa and Diu (the staff) are amazing! They will look after you and your family!
We spent a glorious 10 days there as a chance to spend time with my sister, her partner and young son who live in London. There were 11 of us and plenty of space to be together but also to retreat.
I have such fabulous memories of the home that Villa Rama Rama was for us.

My partner, my mother and I had the absolute pleasure of Villa Rama Rama for 8 glorious nights. We had 7 children with us, aged 7-16yrs. We have absolutely no hesitation in recommending the property for any group configuration. Highlights were the staff- Dewa and Dui were brilliant in ensuring we enjoyed our stay, transport was no problem and the meals were beyond delicious! We only ate out once.
The view of the rest of the island, the volcano, the lights, the stars... The villa was perfectly maintained, clean, spacious and equipt with everything we needed. The Rock Bar is a must for quiet sunset drinks. I have enjoyed Bali before, but Rama Rama easily surpassed everything i have experienced. Thankyou :) We will be returning and hope you are not booked out!

It was our dear family friend Eunice and her family who roped my family of four to join her on this fantastic Bali trip. It was our second trip to the isles of the Gods. My wife and I honeymooned there 10 years ago!
In all, there were 9 adults and 4 hyper kids and the villa accomodated everyone very comfortably. Superstars of the villa, Dewa and ayu made us feel right at home from the moment we stepped into the villa.
The villa's view is nothing short of breathtaking, you get to see Mount agung and Mount Batur and also the Indian Ocean. The pool is just a hit with us all with the weather being tropical. I managed to get a nice tan and the kids just love the pool though the rough surface does make for some blistered young fingers.
The ride to the villa could be wild and not for the faint of heart as it involves some seriously narrow unpaved roads but Dewa masterfully weaved in and out without so much of a wink and he can get you to Kuta in a jiffy. In fact he gets us everywhere in a jiffy.
We wake up every morning pampered and made full use of the spa. The property is really well maintained and it gives one the impression that it is somebody's well cherished home and you are the guest of honor. The rooms are spacious and the housekeepers kept it clean at all times. Air conditioned too.
At night, there was a selection of movies that will cater to everyone and Transformers 3 and Rise of the Planet of the apes were awesome on big screen ( I mean projector big). The sound system is equally awesome.
This place is highly recommended. We got to do some seriousty typical things to do in Bali like sunset watching in Ku De Ta and also the uber awesome Rock Bar.
It was a thoroughly enjoyable stay for us all and it was with a lot of sadness that we had to leave it all so soon.

We have been to Villa Rama Rama for three years in a row.. and we love it! Diu and Dewar are the most amazing staff who looked after us beautifully. Our children always have an absolute ball and as parents, we enjoy a truly relaxing and restful break. The pool is great fun and the rest of the villa has always accommodated us and our family/friends more then adequately. Our daily massages in the spa room downstairs are heavenly, and its great not having to go anywhere if we don't want to! The food that Diu cooks is out of this world.. Why eat out? We didn't! We look forward to our next visit with great excitement!
