Regardless of the size of your group, Villa Paloma offers plenty of space to socialise, eat and drink, soak up the sun or slip away with a good book. Start your day with breakfast on the wooden patio overlooking the pool and gardens before changing into your swimsuit for laps in the cool, clear water or heading off to the beaches, temples, golf courses, shops and eateries of southwestern Bali.
By late afternoon, you can gather with friends and family in the massive living room for light snacks and beverages and a game of pool on the breezy upper level. Dinner is all about exquisite dishes prepared by the resident chef, washed down with bottles of fine wine from the custom-built wine cellar.
As the sun begins to sink in the sky, soft lights illuminate the pool and the gardens, and the TV Room beckons with its state-of-the-art equipment, comfortable sofas and reclining chairs. Finally, the day ends with a soothing soak in the beautiful terrazzo bathtub in your ensuite bathroom and a deep sleep in your plush bed made up with crisp white sheets.
Villa Paloma consists of two elegant buildings connected by a vast expanse of emerald green lawn fringed by tropical trees and flowers. The property is surrounded by a high wall to ensure that you have the utmost privacy and serenity, and there are plenty of lotus and lily ponds that add to the tranquil vibe. In addition, the owners have amassed a huge collection of art and antiques from around the archipelago, so each room in the Main House and Guest House has unique personal touches that make you feel like you are in an stylish home rather than a cookie-cutter holiday rental.
The first thing you see when you enter the grounds of Villa Paloma is the Main House with its huge living area and lounge. Here you will find beautiful wicker sofas and chairs decked out in soft cushions, wooden tables sporting traditional stone statues, wood carvings and modern lamps, and soaring wood pillars that support the lofty alang-alang ceiling. One whole side of the room is open to allow for views of the pool and garden, although there are bamboo blinds that can be lowered to protect against the elements. On the upper level of the living room there is a pool table situated next to large windows that open to allow fresh breezes to flow through.
Dining & Kitchen
The indoor dining room is connected to the open-concept living room, and it features a long wooden table and chairs that can seat up to 10 people. This area also overlooks the pool, and is backed by antique wooden walls that evoke a sense of exotic and historic Indonesia. Next to the dining room, a modern wine cellar leads into the fully equipped kitchen. Behind the kitchen there is also a cozy dining area and a pantry.
The air conditioned TV Room is the perfect spot to lie back and take in a movie or listen to music with friends and family. An oversized sofa with plenty of cushions and pillows is fronted by a large wooden coffee table where you can put your feet up and relax, and on either side of the sofa there are sleek reclining chairs that face the flat screen TV. This room also has a cutting edge stereo system, DVD player and high-speed Internet.
There are 3 bedrooms in the Main House, including the Master Bedroom. Each room is air conditioned for comfort and offers large beds that are draped in white mosquito nets and decorated with colorful silk throw pillows and bed runners. Traditional Indonesian antiques and artworks adorn the walls, and every day, the staff will place fresh flowers on the beds and around the room. The bedrooms also boast ensuite bathrooms with terrazzo bathtubs, marble counters and lush green plants. Some of the rooms also have outdoor showers for refreshing your body and mind under the sun and the stars.
Across the garden from the Main House, you will find the Guest House with its 2 elegant bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms and modern amenities, an open sided living room with comfortable couches and armchairs, and brightly colored sun loungers next to a small plunge pool. This building also has its own kitchen, so you can prepare yourself snacks, keep beverages cool or get the chef to whip you up delectable meals.
If outdoor living is your thing, Villa Paloma won’t disappoint. The sprawling grounds here offer vast expanses of green grass, pretty ponds with lotus flowers, lily pads, fish and frogs, and attractive benches set in the shade of frangipani and coconut trees. Directly in front of the Main House, a lovely sundeck surrounds the pool and enticing sun loungers sport vibrant red cushions. Next to the pool there is a small wooden patio where you can dine next to the water and a thatch-covered bale (gazebo) for afternoon naps or massages. The pool itself has shallow ledges for small children or those who simply want to sunbathe and keep cool at the same time, and there is also a deep end that is perfect for doing laps under the clear blue skies.

Villa Paloma is located in the village of Pererenan in the north Canggu area. In the immediate vicinity are a few neighbouring villas, rice fields, coconut palms, temples and the general buzz of Balinese village life. The rugged Pererenan surf beach is less than a kilometre from the villa; here you will find a couple of cafés that serve simple food and offer great sunset views. Less than half an hour away - and easily accessible thanks to the villa's complimentary car and driver - are the many restaurants, bars, boutiques, clubs and cafés of chic Seminyak, and the villa is only 15 minutes away from Bali Nirwana, one of the best Golf courses in Southeast Asia.
