Bayu Gita comprises two stunning villas in the tranquil coastal village of Ketewel on Bali’s south-east coast. The villas can be rented separately or together, providing accommodation for up to 18 adults.
Six-bedroom Villa Bayu Gita faces Pabean Beach, a renowned surf spot. With awe-inspiring views over the Badung Straits, the villa comes with every modern luxury you would expect of a property of this calibre, including a home cinema, hi-tech gym, games room, an enormous swimming pool plus two plunge pools, and stunning outdoor and indoor living spaces that take full advantage of the villa’s spectacular beachfront location.
Just 100 metres inland from Villa Bayu Gita, and with a rural charm of its own, is three-bedroom Bayu Gita Residence. This contemporary villa lies within a private walled tropical garden and boasts its own 11-metre swimming pool and garden gazebo with jacuzzi.
BAYU GITA RESIDENCE
Bayu Gita Residence is a spacious, contemporary, three-bedroom villa with a convivial dining and bar area and a bright upper-floor living/media room with tantalising ocean views. Outside in the tropical walled garden, guests can slip into the refreshing water of the 11-metre pool for a leisurely swim, relax in the jacuzzi or on the daybed in the gazebo, or enjoy the sunshine as they recline on a poolside lounger while their every need is attended to by the villa’s professional staff team, and delicious meals prepared at your convenience by Bayu Gita’s private chef.
The villa is located in a quaint seaside village where fisherman head out in traditional boats to net their daily catch, kids run along the beachfront, and surfers will be pleased to find a break right on their doorstep. Despite the many and varied attractions at the villa, guests wanting to explore can avail themselves of a car and driver to visit the best that Bali has to offer: the art and culture of Ubud and the charming, laid-back beachside cafés and restaurants of Sanur are both within an easy drive, and the boutiques and bustling streets of Seminyak are not much further away.
Two-storey Bayu Gita Residence is set in a tropical walled garden featuring an 11-metre pool. On either side of the ground floor entrance hall is a guest bedroom, above which lie the master bedroom and study. The adjoining wing houses an open-plan kitchen/dining area at ground level and a media/lounge room on the upper floor. Across the lawned garden is a shady gazebo where a comfortable daybed lies alongside an inviting jacuzzi.
The air-conditioned master suite at Bayu Gita Residence has a soaring rattan ceiling above a dreamily draped king-sized bed set on a raised wooden platform. Floor-to-ceiling windows reveal sea views through the trees. Glass doors open onto an adjoining study with long desk facing the sea, and shelves lined with books. A walk-through dressing room leads to a spacious white stone bathroom with rain shower.
Guest bedrooms 1 & 2
The villa’s two air-conditioned guest bedrooms are on the ground floor. Of a similar size and layout, each is furnished with a queen-sized bed topped with embroidered cushions and one features a small, pebbled courtyard garden. Both have semi-outdoor ensuite bathrooms accented in cream and white stone, with walk-in rain showers.
Glass folding doors encircle all the living areas at Bayu Gita Residence, creating the option for air-conditioned cool or a semi-outdoor, open-air living experience. Furnished with a table for eight, the dining area incorporates a bar/breakfast counter behind which is a well-equipped kitchen.
The spacious lounge and media room on the upper floor features tall sloping ceilings and whirring fans. A lounge suite is arranged for comfortable viewing of the flat-screen satellite TV/DVD player, while surrounding glass doors reveal a pleasant garden vista. Two planters chairs at the far end of the room look out over a bamboo grove and the sea glinting through the trees.
A patio encircles the dining room, with small temple in one corner and a six-seater circular teak table shaded by a vine-covered trellis.
At one end of the garden lies the tiled swimming pool and sun deck topped with four loungers. Terracotta pots brim with vibrantly hued bougainvillea, while golden frangipani and heliconia frame a compact manicured lawn and a large garden gazebo houses a jacuzzi and comfortable daybed scattered with cushions.

The villa offer an extensive suggestion menu of delicious home-style meals featuring Asian and international dishes to cater to all tastes, with an excellent selection of vegetarian and children’s options. The chef is also more than happy to tailor meals to accommodate any special dietary requirements a stay is not complete without sampling pepes ikan (fish steamed in banana leaf), satay ayam (chicken satay on bamboo skewers) or pisang goreng (fried banana) with ice cream.

FAMILIES AT VILLA BAYU GITA
The family friendly advantages of a villa holiday are many, including access to your own private facilities and the freedom to use them whenever you want. Knowing that the kids can run around happily, independently and safely, without you having to worry about other guests, is a real plus – and one that means parents are certain to have a more relaxed holiday too.
Bayu Gita is a great villa for families with older children. The Beachfront villa offers a choice of pools, Wii, Xbox and a well-stocked home cinema, while Bayu Gita Residence’s media room, toys, games and pool will keep kids well amused too. Younger children will also love the villas, although parents will need to be vigilant on the beach as the water is not suitable for swimming.
The team of friendly staff at Bayu Gita will make children feel as welcome as adults, and having these willing helpers on hand gives guests plenty of flexibility and freedom to do their own exploring beyond the villa grounds (full-time babysitting incurs a small extra cost).
Although the equipped kitchen allows you to prepare meals for fussy eaters or babies with ease, staff will happily to do this for you – just talk through your requirements and meal schedules with the villa manager or chef and they will take care of the rest. Pancakes by the pool for breakfast? Toasties for tea? No problem. The chef can customise all meals to suit children’s taste buds.
Don’t worry about packing all that cumbersome kids’ equipment for your stay. Just let us know what you need, and anything we don’t have in-house (villa facilities include a baby cot, highchair, booster seat, games and toys) we can hire on your behalf (click here to see list of available hire items).
And when the excitement of exploring the villas starts to wear off, check out our Things to do page – there’s plenty in the area to keep all the family amused throughout the holiday.
Feel like a body scrub or massage? Just ask our staff to bring the spa to you! We can recommend deluxe treatments carried out in the privacy of the villa by fully trained therapists from a reputable local spa (extra charges will apply). Here’s a sample of what’s on the menu:
Release built up tension with a traditional Balinese massage by the pool or in the relaxation balé. Using a combination of gentle stretches, acupressure and aromatherapy oils to stimulate the flow of blood, oxygen and energy around your body you will feel totally relaxed in no time.
Foot reflexology is a natural healing art based on the principle that there are reflexes in the feet which correspond to every part of the body. Through application of pressure on these reflexes tension is relieved and circulation improved leaving you feeling balanced.
A full body scrub will exfoliate and hydrate your skin leaving it soft and smooth. A rejuvenating scrub combines an abrasive material such as salt, coffee, rice bran or pecan hulls with essential oils to remove any impurities and make your skin glow.
Our hands and feet work hard for us every day but rarely get the attention they deserve. Treat them to a manicure or pedicure, which usually comes with the added bonus of a quick hand or foot massage.
