Description from owner
Villa Dukuh sits on a private cliff top with a stunning river valley view on one acre of land in Dukuh, Bali, not far from Tanah Lot temple.
Designed to maximize space, comfort and relaxation, the villa is nestled in a quiet and traditional village. We are ideally situated--only 15 minutes away from Bali's world-famous west coast beaches (including Canggu / Echo Beach), and 25-30 minutes away from Seminyak.
Every room is large and bright, enjoying open views as well as high exposed ceilings. Three bedrooms each boast king-sized beds and natural stone and wood details, including antique Javanese teak-paneled walls. Each has a large ensuite bathroom with oversized terrazzo bathtub and open shower with garden view. For added luxury, bathtubs and showers are trimmed with Borneo hardwood. A fourth bedroom with queen-sized bed is also available for groups of over six guests.
The 15-meter x 5-meter infinity swimming pool, finished entirely in natural stone, is designed for both serious lap swimmers and loungers.
But what really sets Villa Dukuh apart is our private tennis court in the shadow of the 30-meter cliff and perched above the river. For both enthusiasts and casual players, we guarantee you a playing experience that you will not forget! And after your game--or for those intending a less aerobic holiday--enjoy a cold drink in our court-side Balinese "Bale" (thatched teak gazebo).
Throughout the villa you will find exquisite furnishings made from the highest quality local products wherever possible, including aged teak, rattan, and leather. The villa also has a small selection of original artwork from Bali and the region.
For entertainment, enjoy the open billiard room with nine-foot mahogany table. Or curl up in front of our 32-inch flat-screen television and choose from a wide selection of DVDs. The villa has other games, which you are welcome to use, as well an extensive library. Our compact stereo has an I-Phone / I-Pod dock and is USB and MP3 compatible.
Additional in-house services available at additional cost include massage, manicure/pedicure, haircut, nanny service and private tennis instruction.
During your stay, you will be taken care of by our six full-time staff. You will enjoy a comprehensive complimentary breakfast menu each morning, in-house laundry service and twice-daily housekeeping. Additional a la carte meals can be ordered throughout the day. Unlike many other villas in Bali, our kitchen is open. Guests are welcome to cook or learn from our Balinese chef.
Villa Dukuh has been built with our own family’s enjoyment in mind. We very much look forward to welcoming you to our home – and welcoming you back!

“Great Villa, great staff”
My family and I stayed at the Villa to celebrate my Mothers 60th birthday and we couldn't imagine a better way to mark the occasion. The facilities and view at the villa were fantastic and the staff were brilliant. They were always willing to do whatever was needed to keep everyone happy, including cooking great meals and driving people to any location. Would happily recommend the villa to anyone looking for an amazing place which is out of the ordinary. Luke
The villa was huge and accommodated all our needs. What made the stay special was the wonderful and hardworking staff. All of them including the night guard and the manager were excellent. The villa is wonderful, although you might want to look at the faster fan for the living and dining area :)). Some afternoons were very humid and hot and we had to use the media room to cool ourselves. Rest all was just perfect. Thanks again and I will definitely refer Villa Dukuh to my friends or for that matter revisit after few years.
“Gorgeous villa and wonderful staff”
We stayed as a large group of two families with young children for one week. Having viewed the website and pictures, we were still blown away by the sheer size of the property. The scale of the villa is much bigger than we anticipated. It felt like we were in a hotel resort but with only us as the guests! The layout of the villa is perfect for two families - with 2 x 2 bedrooms on either side of the pool and a large main house with the living room, kitchen, etc. So it feels like each family has their own wing. The pool was wonderful and I arranged for it to be professionally fenced via a local pool fence hire company. Andrew, the villa owner, was very helpful and quick to answer emails prior to booking the villa. The staff at the villa were fantastic. The food was delicious. The housekeeping and maintenance was top notch. The beds were comfortable (with mosquito nets). Gede, the manager, has assembled an excellent team. Rika, Nopa, Edi, Nik and Putu were all wonderful. Nothing was too much trouble. An added bonus was the children's equipment on hand - highchairs, car seats, toys, pool toys, DVDs, etc. The only downside to our stay was the bumpy local road near the property. It did take a good 10 to 15 minutes to reach the main road which did make outings more difficult than anticipated. So it did take a total of 45 to 60 minutes to reach Seminyak. However, we took it as an opportunity to limit our outings and enjoy the villa more. Enforced relaxation is not a bad thing at all! I would recommend this villa highly.
“A Stunning Villa”
Villa Dukuh provides a really stunning and exclusive retreat and is beautifully designed. We loved being off the beaten track in the peaceful midst of a local village, away from the crowds. The staff were very obliging and arranged excellent massages for our relaxing break. Our local find was Desa Seni, an organic cafe, spa and yoga retreat in Canggu with excellent facilities and a great place to spend our last day. Thank you Andrew for going go so much trouble on our behalf.
“Increíble estancia en el paraíso”
Acabamos de pasar nuestras vacaciones en Villa Dukuh y no tengo palabras para expresar la magnífica experiencia que ha supuesto. Desde el increíble trato recibido por Gede y todas las personas trabajando allí (no sólo se encargaron de satisfacer todas nuestras necesidades: excursiones, traslados a otras islas, etc sino que cuando vieron nuestro interés por la cultura y costumbres Balinesas nos invitaron a una ceremonia en su propia casa para que pudiéramos entenderlas mejor) , pasando por la deliciosa, sana y fabulosa comida y la impresionante sensación de encontrarte en el paraíso. Después de pasar el día en Kuta, Ubud, Jimbaran, Nusa Dua o cualquier otro lugar donde hay miles de personas y un tráfico terrible parece increíble que haya tan cerca un lugar donde te sientes totalmente aislado de todo estrés . La única pega que le encuentro es que hemos tenido que finalizar las vacaciones y dejar Villa Dukuh.
“stunning villa set in the heart of real Bali”
Wow where do I start, our family has never experienced such a beautiful holiday, from our first welcome from Nopa at the airport, our wonderful driver for the week to the warm welcome on arrival at the villa from Rika, Nik, Edi unfortunately Gede was missing in action for the first part of our stay, pleasure to meet him at the end, we are already planning our next stay. Rikas cooking was enak sekali, her incredible Balinese dishes yum, all the staff went so far above and beyond what we expected, walking out into the surrounding villages every morning was another highlight smiling happy faces, a step back in time to the real Bali!
We stayed at the Villa for four nights in July en-route to a trip to Australia. It completely surpassed our (high) expectations and we were in awe of how beautiful the villa and location were from the minute we arrived (after a seamless pick-up and journey from the airport). The staff were absolutely lovely and nothing was too much trouble. The food was also superb (including the amazing breakfasts!). The facilities of the villa are outstanding - the swimming pool in particular which is stunning and big enough for a proper swim. It was a beautiful place to relax and unwind and the village/forest setting could not be more perfect. All in all, we would highly, highly recommend Villa Dukuh and are already planning when we might be able to return.
“A beautiful place to stay”
Villa Dukuh is a gorgeous place to hide away for a while. The staff could not be more thoughtful, nor the location more exquisite. We had a wonderful family holiday and were made to feel very welcome by everyone we encountered in the village.
“WOW WOW AN AMAZING PIECE OF BALI LUXURY AND HOSPITALITY”
I was fortunate to have stayed at this wonderful villa with 7 of my friends, from the moment we were picked up at the airport we were treated so special, the place itself is everything the internet and friends told us, very comfortable in every way the rooms were beautiful and the pool fantastic, the gardens lovely,we loved being away from the hustle & bustle of Bali and to meet the Balinese people from the village, the staff at the villa were the best we have had anywhere in the world, so beautiful, Rika and Nik the food was fantastic and no one had any tummy troubles, we say to everyone try everything!! Gede & Nopa our drivers were exceptional drivers on a very difficult road, to Edi who was always there to help with whatever we needed, and the lovey lady who is expecting her baby very soon you were wonderful but i can't spell your name, but we wish you good luck with your baby. Villa Dukuh we have left with the most wonderful memories and we'll never forget you, you all treated us like real princesses we love you. I don't think you have seen the last of us as we all want to visit again in the future.
“Gracious staff, spectacular setting, perfect stay”
Villa Dukuh is one of the most amazing luxury properties we've ever been to: secluded and serene, yet the sights of Bali are still easily accessible; tastefully designed; plenty of activities to keep one occupied, but also space to kick-back and relax; an incredibly nice and helpful staff; and a stunning setting. The property consists of 4 rooms arranged around a pool overlooking a lush river valley. The architecture, interiors, and landscaping perfectly takes you into your own private world away from the touristy hustle of Bali. The Villa is several miles down a small road and in the middle of a small rice growing village, but the beaches and attractions of the Seminyak area of Bali are no more than 30 minutes away. We have never stayed in a more comfortable and serene location. The courteous and extremely helpful staff are a major highlight of the experience. They consistently went out of their way to ensure that we had all we could desire from transport to meals, to massages. We arrived in Bali at midnight and had to wait in a long immigration line, and were so happy to see the Villa's friendly driver waiting for us with bottles of water right outside the airport. The Villa's staff in fact provided transportation around the area as we explored the following days. We left with the impression that if something was in their capacity to provide, they would happily do it. The Villa's cooks are top-notch. Everything is freshly made the day of, using groceries from that morning's market. The menu has a wide range of Balinese and western food, all of which are superb. There are many restaurants around the Seminyak area, but we honestly enjoyed the Villa's cuisine so much we chose not to explore further. We highly recommend staying here. It is great for couples, families, and groups of friends. There is plenty to do for children (such as the pool, a nice TV room, pool table, etc). There was really nothing we found lacking, and we hope to go back again.
