I’m gonna start with one of my all-time favourite family villas – Villa Tangram. First, the location is perfect – it is within a secure private complex and just a few minutes walk from Oberoi, which is stacked with restaurants and shops. You will be able to find something for even the fussiest of kids to eat while you enjoy some classic oldies played by a friendly local band. The villa itself is ideal for large families with its roomy bedrooms – including a bunk bed room, and spacious living areas. The kids will definitely be fighting over who gets a top bunk!
Villa Kundalini is a picture perfect image of a classic Bali villa. During my search of Legian villas, it came out on top as one of the most homey and comfortable, ideal for a tropical family retreat. The lush green gardens and sparkling swimming pool lure you to spend long days in the sun, while the cosy and plush furnishings offer a comfortable cool solace from the heat. You can easily supervise the children playing in the pool with your feet up on the couch. Only a moment’s walk from the beach and restaurants, you won’t need to worry about piling kids into taxis to enjoy what Legian has to offer.
Well this villa is what it says on the tin.. It’s a luxury home. Bringing a contemporary stylish edge to a Bali retreat, it is a comfortable setting for a relaxing stay. I personally love the trendy and plush bedrooms, not only are they huge but they feature home comforts such as luxurious linens and grand en-suite bathrooms. The rooftop terrace also adds an extra special quality. You can escape your group to enjoy some quiet reading time and catch a magical sunset.
What I wouldn’t give to spend a long weekend soaking around the swimming pool of this villa. The plush sunbeds are the perfect place to laze the days away. Just minutes walk from the beach, shops and restaurants, it is the ideal central location to be able to reach everything you need on foot. Gather your loved ones and enjoy a relaxing retreat in this modern and open villa.
All of the Legian private pool villas I have mentioned are walking distance to the beach, and Villa Jamu is no exception. However, this villa made it onto my list for its bright and open living areas, resembling a modern loft style home. I love how spacious and comfortable it is for spending time with your family and friends. The cosy furnishings and fan-cooled rooms are perfect for relaxing, and escaping the hot humid weather. Explore the beaches and markets, before returning to your own island home from home.
I don’t know where to begin with Villa Massilia 2, it is my favourite of the private villas in Legian, for so many reasons. The location is perfect – just a short walk from restaurants, bars and shops yet it still remains private and peaceful in a secure street. The vibe is unmatched – relaxing, luxurious and Mediterranean. You can forget your worries and spend long days soaking in the sun around the gorgeous swimming pool. Chic and trendy, it is a picture perfect backdrop for an unforgettable getaway.
Oozing style and class just a short walk from the beach, Downtown Villa is a calm and minimalist hideaway for a peaceful yet central getaway. I love how the clean simple design makes for a relaxing space where you can unwind from the busy outside world. The bamboo exteriors add a tropical edge to the quaint villa.

Just a short walk from the shops, this boutique home is a paradise with towering greenery and a sparkling swimming pool offering a respite from the heat. Whether you are staying with friends or family, this island home is a relaxing and calm setting for a memorable trip.
Now, I don’t know about you, but I’m a sucker for a good bathtub and Villa K certainly provides. Spend a relaxing evening basking in a hot bath to unwind and release tension, or enjoy a cool flower bath as part of a calming spa treatment. To find a jungle paradise like this outside of Ubud is rare and must be taken advantage of! The pool runs the length of the gardens, lazy-river style and the vast plant-life hides cute lily ponds and a wooden bridge. You can get lost in the nature and calm atmosphere of Villa K for a tranquil stay.
Villa Sepu is a strong contender for one of the best Legian private pool villas. I was lured in by the bright and modern design centered around the swimming pool.

Walking distance from the beach, and just a short drive to the most popular restaurants and bars of the area, it is the perfect villa for a relaxing fun-filled weekend with your friends.
