With a fabulous setting within the Laksmana enclave and just 500 metres from the beach in Seminyak, this luxurious cul-de-sac of four fully staffed one and two-bedroom villas, each with private pool, is ideally located for exploring Bali’s cosmopolitan hub.
The iconic beach club Ku De Ta is just a short stroll away, as are some of the island’s most acclaimed dining venues. Each villa is built to a stylish tropical design incorporating open-plan living area, spacious bedrooms and swimming pool fringed by lush gardens.

VILLA SOLO 1 BEDROOM
Set within an enchanted courtyard garden brimming with frangipani, heliconia and hibiscus, Solo is the most intimate of the Lakshmi villas, and also the most romantic, making it an ideal hideaway for honeymooners. Its tranquil setting belies a convenient location right in the heart of Seminyak; a district famed for its sweeping sandy beach, world-class restaurants, trendy bars and designer boutiques.
The villa takes its name from the historic city of Solo in Central Java, known as the cradle of Javanese culture and renowned for its distinctive batiks. A contemporary Balinese design celebrates tropical living, with an open-sided living pavilion with soaring ceilings overlooking the swimming pool fringed in lush greenery. A spacious air-conditioned bedroom comes with sitting area, satellite TV and DVD player and delightful garden bathroom. Those looking for extra space can rent Villa Solo in conjunction with the adjacent two-bedroomed Villa Kawi, connected by a garden door.
Long-standing staff provide a warm welcome and a discreet professional service. The villa has a guest kitchen, with mini bar and complimentary tea and coffee, while an executive chef prepares tasty meals in the staff kitchen from an extensive a la carte menu that includes western and Asian dishes. He is also happy to accommodate any special requests – from kid’s meals to four-course feasts and pool-side barbecues.
Whether you want to stroll down to the world-class dining venues of ‘eat street,’ shop till you drop, lounge on the beach, or sip cocktails at sunset, the opportunities that come with a stay at Villa Solo are endless.
This single-storey villa is entered via a stone pathway leading into a walled courtyard garden with swimming pool. Designed in an L-shape around the pool, the villa has an open-plan living, dining and kitchen area and a large bedroom.
Elegant and expansive, Villa Solo’s air-conditioned and fan-cooled bedroom overlooks the pool. Smooth marble floors give way to creamy walls and soaring ceilings, while the King-size bed is draped in an ivory mosquito net, with green and gold soft furnishings concealing crisp white linens and deluxe pillows.
The bedroom also features a desk, flat-screen satellite TV with DVD player and a daybed (which could sleep a child). A beautiful semi-outdoor bathroom has marble floors, walk-in shower, twin vanity and customised amenities. A bathtub is set in a picturesque courtyard amidst blue pebbles and fernery, while a narrow pathway leads to a small temple hidden amongst the foliage.
The villa’s open-sided, fan-cooled lounge and dining pavilion has soaring ceilings supported by stout timber columns, and a pale stone floor. Two rattan sofas piled with colourful cushions make a cosy lounge area arranged around a wooden coffee table. A glass-topped dining table seats four, while a sideboard displays flower-filled vases and an iPod dock.
A guest kitchen with granite counters is conveniently tucked into one end of the living room and provides all the essentials for tea and coffee-making, cool drinks from the mini bar, or for whipping up a quick meal.
A wooden pool deck in the corner of the garden is topped by two deck chairs shaded by a parasol.

FAMILIES AT LAKSHMI
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.
Lakshmi Villas are a great option for small families, with their private swimming pools and easy access to Seminyak’s sweeping sandy beach (currents can be strong so make sure to swim between yellow flags). A pool safety fence can be organised on request.
Lakshmi’s friendly staff 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 guest kitchen allows you to prepare simple meals for fussy eaters or babies, staff will happily to do this for you in the main kitchen – just talk through your requirements and meal schedules with the villa manager or chef and they will take care of the rest. Need to sterilise a bottle? Chicken fingers for tea? No problem. The chef can customise all meals to suit children’s taste buds.
Fancy 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 your own 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. 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.
