Experience Beachfront Paradise

Welcome to beachfront Sanur – a magnificent Bali-style residence blessed with an amazing 60 metres of absolute beachfront and blissful ocean vistas across the Lombok Straits to the island of Nusa Lembongan. The location is simply amazing!

Sanur is so family-friendly, with calm beaches, relaxed beach cafes and a slower pace than Seminyak and Canggu. Imagine slipping through the villa’s private gate, across the golden sand and into the warm shallow waters of the silken sea. Or take a leisurely stroll (or energetic bike ride) on the adjacent promenade that stretches for eight kilometres along the beautiful south-east Bali coast. Designed by famed Balinese architect Popo Danes, Cemara’s five ocean-facing living and sleeping pavilions feature light interiors liberally adorned with finely crafted local materials: alang-alang thatched roofs; Palimanan and terrazzo floors; river-stone walls; elaborately carved and gilded teakwood doors. Artefacts and original paintings by acclaimed Balinese artists grace the air-conditioned bedroom suites, where sublimely comfortable beds dressed in crisp cotton invite restful slumber.

The enormous open-sided living pavilion is the villa’s social heart – just the spot for casual breakfasts and candlelit dinners prepared by the accomplished villa cook. Choose from an excellent suggestion menu, or take advantage of the abundance of seafood on your doorstep and enjoy grilled fish on the barbecue. The entire family will appreciate the cool beach vibe here. Kids can build sandcastles and paddle in the shallow waters; older guests can kite-surf or take to the sea on a jet ski. After a refreshing dip in the pool, how about a massage in the balé or in the comfort of your room? At the end of the day, fall asleep lulled by the waves lapping the shore. The friendly staff will look after you well and are happy to organise everything from a gamelan troupe, yoga teacher, or a car and driver for day trips to rice terraces and mountains, Seminyak or Ubud.

Inspired by traditional Balinese living, Villa Cemara comprises five alang-alang thatched pavilions, all carefully oriented for the stellar ocean views. A few steps beyond the traditional teakwood entrance doors is the open-sided living pavilion stretching along the beachfront and, across a koi pond to the rear, the villa kitchen. Next along the villa’s 60 metres of absolute beachfront is the 10-metre pool, then the master pavilion and raised corner balé. Looking over the length of the pool and out towards the sea are a pair of two-storey bedroom pavilions, each with two guest suites, one upstairs and one downstairs. A gate between the living pavilion and the pool gives direct access to the promenade and beach.

All five-bedroom suites are named after tropical flowers found in the villa gardens. Cooled by air-conditioning, ceiling fans or the sea breeze, they have quality beds dressed in crisp cotton linen, handsome teakwood furniture, intriguing lamps, blackout curtains and Bose speakers.


Heliconia, the impressive master suite, occupies a stand-alone alang-alang thatched pavilion adjacent to the beach and separated from the pool area by a water feature. Stepping stones lead to a shaded Palimanan stone terrace where traditional Balinese doors open onto an elaborately carved feature wall running the full length of the suite. A handsome collection of antique furniture and Indonesian art decorate this air-conditioned and fan-cooled space, which is divided into a sleeping section furnished with a king-size bed, and a living area with cane armchairs and a large daybed facing a 42-inch TV. Beyond a wall of glass is a magical rock garden with a pond and waterfall. Out of sight is a dressing room with copious shelving and hanging space.

Equally impressive is the air-conditioned bathroom with terrazzo twin vanity and, beyond glass doors, a garden courtyard where a jacuzzi is framed by a river-stone wall carved with fish and dotted with bird nest ferns, and an alfresco shower shares space with a water-wall.


Villa Cemara’s four guest bedroom suites are housed in a pair of two-storey alang-alang thatched pavilions facing the ocean across the pool. All feature king-size beds (two convertible to twins), fascinating colonial-style furniture and artefacts, walk-through wardrobes, air-conditioning and ceiling fans. There is a 42-inch TV and DVD player in the two downstairs rooms, from where traditional carved Balinese doors open onto garden terraces with marble bistro tables and chairs. The two upper-level suites feature vaulted ceilings and reward guests with sweeping sea views through two walls of glass. The staircase to reach the two upstairs bedrooms is on the outside of the pavilion so the upstairs and downstairs rooms are not interconnected.

Extra beds are available as well for family groups or children sharing.

All four bathrooms in the guest suites have an air-conditioned section with a twin vanity and an alfresco courtyard shower. Bathrooms in the garden suites also feature terrazzo bathtubs.


Strategically positioned by the pool to accord guests a spectacular ocean vista, the huge open-sided living pavilion is Villa Cemara’s social hub. Chic contemporary armchairs, an oversized sofa and a traditional Indonesian daybed rest on a Palimanan stone floor under the soaring alang-alang thatched roof, promising convivial space for relaxing around the antique carved panel coffee table. In the dining area, a stunning marble-topped antique dining table comfortably seating 10 is the perfect setting for candlelit dinners, cooled by ceiling fans and the sea breeze.

From the living pavilion, steps across a koi pond lead to the villa’s kitchen, handsomely designed and equipped with everything from a coffee maker to a commercial stove, wok to the walk-in fridge.


Sun worshipers will enjoy lounging on the two pool-side decks after taking a refreshing dip in the Bali green-stone pool. Those seeking shade for a siesta will gravitate to the alang-alang thatched balé raised above a waterfall-filled rock pool overlooking the beach.

There are several stepping stone paths across fish ponds and water features dotted throughout this Villa, so those travelling with babies and toddlers would need to keep a close eye.

Villa Cemara is located metres from the wide expanse of golden sand in Sanur on Bali’s south-eastern coast only half an hour from the airport. Walk through the gate and take a stroll along the beach or cycle along the promenade to the laid-back village’s many beachfront cafes, restaurants, boutiques, lifestyle shops and spas. Also close by are excellent kite surfing and water sports centres, the famed five-star Bali Hyatt and Fairmont resorts – historic temples too. Simply step outside your front gate to find massage beds, bicycle hire, a selection of restaurants and a fantastic bike/walking path. What a perfect spot!
