The Layar is a spectacular design-led villa resort in the heart of chic Seminyak, moments from Bali’s best restaurants, boutiques & beach bars. Set in tropical gardens, The Layar's 4-bedroom private pool villa sleeps up to 8 Guests.view
The word ‘layar’ means ‘sail’ in Indonesian, making The Layar a fitting moniker for Seminyak’s newest designer villas and spa. The name refers to the stunning asymmetrical roofs here that slope at an angle and fall dramatically to the ground, evoking the sails of traditional Indonesian sailboats. This is tropical-chic architecture at its best and a serene enclave in the midst of some of Bali’s best restaurants, shops and bars. Each of the spacious and secluded private villas has its own ambiance and character, and they can accommodate singles, couples, families or groups with 1, 2, 3 and 4-bedroom luxury villas on offer.
Despite having an impressive 23 villas, The Layar - Designer Villas and Spa still manages to instil a feeling of openness and space, as the villas are spread out around a large grassy expanse filled with lofty flowering trees, and the setting is elevated, which makes it seem as though the boundary walls are non-existent. The villas themselves were built with total privacy in mind and feature gorgeous garden sanctuaries, open living spaces, elegant pools, modern interiors and luxurious amenities. Although you have everything you need to make yourself at home in your romantic hideaway or multi-tiered and roomy abode, the staff here are always on hand to provide five-star service when and if you desire.

The one-bedroom luxury villas at The Layar seamlessly merge indoor and outdoor spaces with open-plan living and dining rooms that spread out under the wings of the sloped roofs and look out over the inviting sun loungers on the pool decks and the elevated gardens. The light and airy bedrooms have inviting seating areas, king-sized beds and sliding doors that open up onto the aquamarine pools. There are also ensuite bathrooms decked out in Palimanan stones with outdoor showers and massive stone bathtubs in white pebbled courtyards .
Careful thought has been given to the villa’s romantic living area, resulting in a wonderful sense of space, openness and flow that couples will appreciate. With such a splendid selection of settings to chose from, relaxation comes easy, day or night. Drift between the custom-designed teakwood sofa facing the entertainment centre, the sun-loungers reclining on the pool deck, the tiered shallow section of the pool just beyond the living area, or even the stone bathtub gracing the courtyard garden.
The dining area, with its table and quartet of comfortable chairs raised on a platform of warm-toned Merbau wood, provides an elegant space for a leisurely breakfast or romantic candlelit dinner ordered from the extensive room service menu or prepared in the small but well-equipped kitchen beyond the opaque sliding doors.
Honeymooners and couples will love the design of this large, light-filled king-sized bedroom with its stylish seating area, window onto the courtyard and sliding doors to the pool deck. There’s no scrimping on space in the garden bathroom either – an elegant expanse of Palimanan stone with foliage-fringed shower, elongated counter with twin basis, and – in the adjacent white-pebbled courtyard – a decadently statuesque stone bathtub.
