Villa Zelie has three captivating living pavilions for relaxation, dining and entertainment. Each is open-sided and features soaring ceilings held up by hand-carved beams. The living pavilion is elevated above koi ponds and has deep cushioned couches overlooking the gardens. Next to this is the entertainment pavilion with a beautiful wooden bar, an inviting lounge with sofas, a movie projector, backgammon table, and a library filled with interesting reads. Close by is the dining pavilion surrounded by exotic plants and boasting a huge wooden table for 14 with comfortable hand-carved benches. The dining pavilion also houses a modern kitchen with an island surrounded by tall stools.
The 20-metre, stone-edged swimming pool sits at the very centre of Villa Zelie’s vibrant gardens. Long enough to do laps, and with a shallow area for children, this is the perfect place to cool off on a balmy Bali day. The pool is lined with double sunbeds on the lawn, some of which offer full sun and others that sit in the shade of frangipani trees. The pool pavilion rests on one side of the pool and offers comfortable sofas with large cushions and a rustic wooden coffee table under a striking pendobo roof.
The master suite at Villa Zelie is housed in an iconic Javanese joglo with a large wooden veranda looking out to the gardens. The interiors are a honeymooner’s dream with a romantic canopied bed under an ornately carved timber ceiling, a plush sofa at the foot of the bed, gauzy drapes that can be closed to add another layer of intimacy, and antique wooden furnishings that add rustic charm. The huge outdoor bathroom is also a treat with a stone bathtub, twin wash basins, a rain shower, and a dressing room with a pair of luxurious silk kimonos hanging in the wardrobe.
Villa Zelie’s guest suites are housed in individual stand-alone gladak buildings spread throughout the garden. These gorgeous wooden structures boast breezy verandas with sitting areas facing the pool, king-sized beds, walk-in closets, and semi open-air bathrooms with bathtubs and rain showers. Each has its own colour theme and unique furnishings like hanging lanterns, hand-painted headboards, and batik pillows.

Staying at Villa Zelie in Canggu puts guests at the centre of Bali’s happening beach scene. There is good food and fun in all directions, and ocean waves are just a two-minute walk away.
The quiet residential street where Villa Zelie is located dead-ends onto a pedestrian-only path to Kayu Putih beach, better known as the site of La Laguna – a beachfront restaurant and bar with gypsy-fairy-tale character. Also on this stretch of golden sand are Finn’s Beach Club, Rip Curl School of Surf and casual beach shacks selling cold drinks and snacks.
Canggu, a couple of kilometres north-west of the villa, has the newest crop of hipster cafés, yoga studios, boutique stores and ritzy restaurants on the island. And everything here is woven into a beautiful patchwork of rice paddy terraces and private homes. To the south-east of Villa Zelie is Seminyak, with its own established offering of beachfront pool haunts, high-end shopping and much of Bali’s best fine dining and swankiest nightclubs.
