Villa Sidemen, also known as Villa Patal, is a unique villa, it originally belongs to the royal family of Sidemen who built it in the 1980s. It is a genuine Balinese house with lots of authentic intricate carvings on walls, doors and ceilings.
When you are here you will be able to enjoy one of the most breathtaking views in the world. Relaxing with a chilled mango juice on the terrace you will have the stunning vista of Gunung Agung – Bali’s holy mountain – which is internationally regarded as one of the eight “Chakra” points of the world.
Villa Sidemen is my home and I never get tired of watching the summit of Gunung Agung alternately appearing and vanishing behind shifting clouds. And between Villa Sidemen and Gunung Agung there is the splendid panorama over the valleys with the terracing rice fields. I am sure you will appreciate it as I do. Mick Jagger, David Bowie, Roman Polanski and former Indonesian President Megawati are among those who have enjoyed the magic of this place.
If you are lucky you will be here when there is a full moon. Apart from the very special experience of having Gunung Agung looming in the bleak moonshine you will also most certainly hear the sounds of the real Bali. Full moon is the time for ceremonies in Bali, and from Villa Sidemen you will be able to listen to the many different sounds of the temple ceremonies, like the gamelan orchestra, the priests praying or the more lively sound from a Balinese drama. Often you will hear different sounds from different temples and you will know and feel that this is the real Bali!
We provide an alternative for people, who want to see something else than the crowded Kuta or Ubud. We offer a place with magical beauty far away from any nightclubs or traffic jams. And in Sidemen and it’s surroundings you will meet the magical Bali as it once was.
On your honeymoon? Congratulations and best wishes from us at Villa Sidemen!
