Finding the perfect villa in Bali for your holiday is a full-time job, the options are endless.
It isn’t just about the location. You need to factor in your preferred style, surroundings and amenities, too.
I’m lucky enough to have had the chance to stay in some of the best (and worst) villas in Bali. From cliffside to inland, modern to traditional, these are some of the best villas in Jimbaran that offer luxury, views and amazing facilities.
Endless Ocean Views
Let’s start with something only found in the South of Bali – cliffside views.
Jimbaran villas are known for their magnificent sea views, and Rumah Nesta is a prime example. Set right at the edge of a cliff, the infinity pool looks like it slips right off the side – of course, it doesn’t.
You can swim up to the poolside, and take a front row seat to some of Bali’s most beautiful sights.
With 3 plush bedrooms, a modern Balinese style and lush green gardens, you can enjoy the views from anywhere in Rumah Nesta.
Only a 9 minute walk from the beach down a dirt road, you can escape the crowds and bask in tropical luxury.
Luxurious Cliffside Private Villa
Villa Aum is one of my favourite private villas in Jimbaran. It has the full package – breathtaking sunsets, outdoor pool, and an entertainment room with a billiard table and projector!
The villa architect was inspired by traditional Balinese style to create a comfortable and modern getaway. There are 4 chic bedrooms, private bathrooms, encompassing ocean views and luxurious furnishings. You will never want to leave.
Perfect for surfers and relaxers alike, it has private access to a secluded beach, and is just a short drive from famous Balangan Beach.
Epitome of Tropical Luxury
If Rumah Nesta or Villa Aum aren’t your style, perhaps Villa Moso is the tropical hilltop villa of your dreams.
With a slight nod to classic Bali design, this villa is the height of modern luxury with trendy industrial style and quirky contemporary artworks.
My favourite spot in the villa is the circular poolside bale – it is the perfect mixture of shady and comfortable, but still has the impressive panoramic views.
Villa Moso has 3 HUGE bedrooms that look out over the vast views with cool air-conditioning and ensuite bathrooms. It is one of the best luxurious villas in Jimbaran.
Jimbaran Villa with Perfect Sunset Views
Sunset Paradise Bali
Sunset Paradise Bali
Sunset Paradise Bali is the perfect combination of classic Javanese style with lots of modern facilities.
With lush green views until the ocean, a glistening pool, and rustic living areas, this is a beautiful base for a relaxing holiday.
There are pool views from each of the 5 bedrooms, as well as plenty of space to lounge and unwind with your loved ones. Sunset Paradise Bali is an idyllic Bali home.
Just a short drive from the best beaches of the South, and surrounded by rural rolling hills, you are promised a peaceful stay.
Ultra-Lavish Villa with Magnificent Views
If it isn’t the stunning panoramic views that get your attention, it will be the luxe yet homey vibe.
The garden is packed with extensive tropical greenery, and has jungle views from the private swimming pool. Villa Jiwa has multiple levels with increasingly amazing views, 3 plush bedrooms and spacious living areas. Basically, it is an incredible place to stay.
You’ll find it hard to resist spending each evening on the rooftop, taking in the magnificent Jimbaran sunsets.
Tropical and Homey Private Villa
Not everyone is after ultra-luxury. Some Bali visitors want something comfortable, that feels like home – enter; Casa Jimbaran.
No less beautiful, but much more welcoming, Casa Jimbaran is a perfect private villa to call your island home. It has sprawling treetop views with the ocean on the horizon, a freeform pool, and sunny terrace where you can recline and relax.
For a family or group of friends, there are 3 bedrooms with pool views, plush furnishings, and small terraces. Honestly, I would never want to leave.
But when you do, its just a short drive from Jimbaran Bay, Bali beaches, and tourist hotspots.

On first sight, Villa Pancaloka is a modern and bright space, not unlike other Jimbaran villas. What really sets it apart from the rest is the hidden lily ponds and private yoga bale.
