The Greatest Of All Places I've Ever Been
+ “Everything was excellent. A perfect getaway for me and my husband. Also did a village trek guided by Tyo, our villa butler. The view is just amazing ! They have 150 collections of movie and you can just sit comfortable in the huge sofa in the living room or i called it home theatre. Jacuzzi overlooking to Mount Agung, the bathroom window doesnt have curtain but you dont need one though.
A day before staying in this place i emailed Dayu the General Manager requesting a special surprise for my husband, setting up a floating candle and she cant guaranteed that they able to arrange as they dont have this request in previous time. But guess what, they arranged it in a very fantastic way ! Thank you, Dayu and team ! Really the greatest of all places i've ever been !”
- Too bad i only stay here for a night, will definitely be back here !

Best villa in Bali.
I love that it is tucked away from the madness in Kuta&Seminyak area.
Everything about this place is so luxurious and lush!
My fav part was waking up to Mt Agung, and swimming in the infinity pool overlooking it.
The service was tip top as well! We had a birthday cake for us when we checked in. I want this place to be a secret so I can come back again and again!
Love love it!
"the most beautiful amazing place we have ever stayed"

Wow look at that view of Mount Agung Volcano.It's stands just over 10,000 feet in the air to the top of its peak. Yup that's the highest Volcano in Bali and that's our backdrop from our house we are staying in for the next 7 days. I'm still speachless at this view and this is hands down the most beautiful amazing place we have ever stayed. This villa in the mountain is fit for a king and guess who has stayed here in the past?

“Perfect Honeymoon Stay”
Traveller from London, GB
Our stay at Villa Sidemen was nothing short of perfect. We enjoyed every minute of our 10 day stay. Tantio (the Villa manager) was an absolute gentleman throughout – nothing was too big or small a request, even when we made plans quite late in the day. His knowledge of the surrounding area and Bali more generally were so exceptional, and really brought us closer to the local culture. His team were all equally pleasant and helpful. We couldn’t have asked for more.
The villa is beautiful and kept wonderfully clean and tidy and the view, well that speaks for itself. We stayed 10 days because we just wanted to get away from it all and I would have stayed another 10 without hesitation. After that time though, we still hadn’t taken the whole of that view in. Utterly stunning. If you are looking to stay away from the tourist bustle of the main towns, don’t hesitate.
The food was great, meaning we happily ate at the villa most nights, but Tantio took us to some great local restaurants as well…all were very good.
Our various excursions were all very interesting and thoughtfully chosen by Tantio, who couldn’t have been more accommodating. I would particularly recommend the local market, rice field walks, trips to the temples incl. Agung and to the beach.
The villa has a fantastic entertainment system with a superb selection of movies, but to be honest, we were too happy spending our time outside looking at the view of an evening!
Altogether, we really couldn’t recommend the Villa more highly. Thank you Tantio and team for making our stay so perfect and memorable!
+ “The villa is beautiful, huge and perfectly clean! We loved the comfortable lounge with the cinema, and the films were such high quality.
The views over Mount Agung are incredible! If you get up early, you can see the summit even if the day becomes cloudy. You can also see Mount Batur. The views over the surrounding countryside are fantastic, and there was a constant breeze that kept us cool.
The infinity pool is huge, and we could watch hummingbirds and butteries on the surrounding plants.
The food was delicious (it is ordered from a local restaurant and brought to the villa), and they even accommodated our special requests (to buy coffee and coconuts).
The staff are so friendly and helpful, and it was so easy to organise pick-ups and drop-offs from the villa - they always emailed back very quickly.
And there are massive geckos living on the outside of the villa - we saw more wildlife in Sidemen than anywhere else in Bali.
It is untouched compared to Ubud, etc. - we didn't see any other tourists. This was the best place we stayed in Bali, and we couldn't believe how incredible it was, we loved it! :)”
- Although the pool water is crystal clear and the pool is spotless, the water is not chlorinated. Therefore I didn't dare put my head underwater!
We enjoyed everything. The villa is beautiful with attention to detail in design that we could admire. Actually, we did not expect a housing such as this one, which was well beyond our expectations.
The staff is helpful and knowledgeable.
More importantly, the view is simply magical, be it at night with the pink colors of the sunset or the morning with morning mist nets entered the rice terraces. And all while quietly installed in the lounge or outside in the beautiful private infinity pool.
A dream vacation!

Stunning view, luxurious. Discrete and professional staff. Amazing orchids. Beautiful local area. Reasonable in house menu.
The view was amazing, there will be few places in the world that can match its beauty.
The staff were great and assisted with every request. If you wish to experience the real, majestic Bali, this is the place to stay.
We stayed at your property in October 2018, and we got engaged while there! It was the most amazing property and truly the best time of our lives. We cannot wait to return! We tell everyone we know going to Bali that they need to stay with you all! I’ve attached a picture of our engagement Incase you want to use the photos for your website!
Thank you again for your hospitality. We are still dreaming of our stay!
Traveller from La Habra, US
The villa has one of the most beautiful views I have been able to enjoy at an accommodation. I especially appreciate the way the villa has been designed to take advantage of that view from all the main living areas. I very much enjoyed my stay and if you want a place to relax or get some work done, Villa Sidemen is an ideal place to do that.
Tips for other travellers
The location requires driving about an hour to get to major attractions, but the staff can arrange this. The remote location limits the number of choices for restaurants, but the food at the villa is good and the staff attentive.
An absolutely magical stay with the best view in Bali
Candice, Perth, WA
Our stay at villa sidemen was absolutely magical right from the pick up at the airport until we were dropped off at our next hotel. This is the only place we have stayed where the actual villa is even better than the photos on the website! The views of Mt agung are literally breathtaking and it was a real treat to wake up to this every morning. It really is the best view in Bali.
We highly recommend using the activities provided by the Villa. We had a beautiful yoga instructor come out to us in the morning for 1.5 hour practice (just remember to ask them to bring yoga mats). It was incredible being able to do ‘mountain pose’ in front of a real mountain! We also went for a trek in the rice paddies at sunrise which was well worth it to see the sun come up in such a beautiful setting and meet some real farmers. The in-house massage was invigorating, relaxing and much needed after a long day walking. We didn’t use the big TV, as we were desperate to see the area we were staying in and spent most of our time outdoors. But I hear they have a great selection of movies if you do feel like a night in.
We made really good use of the infinity pool in the mornings and evenings for the 5 nights we were there. The view from the pool is out of this world, and the cool water was nice and soothing in sometimes very humid Bali.
The manager, Tio speaks English very well, and so he came with us on some of our day trips as a guide. This was extremely handy when we were out in the rural parts of Bali as there are not too many people that speak English out there.
We have special dietary requirements and the staff were more than accommodating. My mouth is salivating now thinking about the amazing meals, smoothies and juices served to us which were always extremely generous in sizing and super tasty. Yum!
I really can’t say enough about this place and I highly, highly, highly recommend staying here and can’t wait for the day we are able to make it back there.

Traveller from Melbourne, Australia
Villa Sidemen is a tropical utopia.
Magnificent views which simply cannot be captured in photographs, perfect weather and gorgeous villa.
This is the most romantic getaway one could dream of! The villa manager is caring and wonderful and there is nothing that is too much trouble.
The villa itself is roomy and extremely clean and tidy in beautiful, traditional Bali style.
It is the second time I have visited and I will be back.
Amazing view that’s true… well most of the time the view of the volcano is totally obstructed by the clouds but still able to enjoy the rice fields view.
One of the most amazing villas I’ve ever visited. yet the second room is a bit small but hey it’s just for sleeping, most of the time were spent in the pool, outside terrace or enjoying watching a movie in the huge living room! Best!
