Nestled in a garden of lavish flora and koi ponds, Villa Gembira envelopes you completely with that quintessential Balinese sense of nature. Located in the peaceful district of Batubelig, this villa is just minutes from the beach and boutiques of Canggu and Seminyak, yet is hidden from the crowds and provides guests a supreme sense of privacy. Long and rectangular in shape, Villa Gembira invites you to spend your Bali days in the 10x4 meter swimming pool tucked away in the back or in the central, open-air living room situated in between the two bedrooms. This quiet hideaway can sleep up to four guests at a time, but don't let that be a showstopper for larger groups- rent the lovely, four-bedroomed villa next door and increase your potential party size to 12 people in total with Villa Sembira!
The first bedroom will greet you on the righthand side with beautifully painted double doors under a traditional arched doorway. This air conditioned bedroom boasts a king size bed in its center, one that can be transformed into two singles upon request. Wrapped in white mosquito netting for protection from the tropical pests, the bed is bordered by a set of bedside tables and lamps for reading comfortably at night, while in the corner is an traditional daybed for lounging in the room outside of bed. In the other corner lies a flat screen TV atop a beautiful antique wooden desk. Through curtains on the side of the room is a spacious walk-in wardrobe with hanging space, drawers and a safety box for keeping your belongings safe during your stay. After passing through the dressing room you will find an en-suite bathroom set in a covered, outdoor garden. Enjoy taking a hot rinse under the rain shower to experience island living at its best. This bathroom also features double sink basins, an ornately carved mirror, WC and water dispenser.
The second air conditioned bedroom can be found further down the villa's open-air hallway on the other side of the communal living and dining space. This room also features a king-size bed with mosquito netting in the middle, this one limited to the solo configuration unlike the first bedrooms' two single options. In the lefthand corner is a large flatscreen TV with satellite channels and a DVD player resting on a short dresser with three drawers. The combination of tasteful wood furnishings, an Asian elephant wall hanging and window shutters in all four corners creates a bright and welcoming bedroom ambience for guests to relax in. Similar to the first room, one must walk through a dressing room before entering the outdoor, en-suite bathroom. However, this bathroom is equipped with a deluxe bathtub and rain shower covered by a four-poster gazebo. Surrounded by towering palm fronds, stone carvings and overgrown greenery, we assure you this bathing environment is one of the top highlights of Villa Gembira.
Outdoor & Pool Area
For those keen on pool lounging their way through the duration of their Bali holiday, the villa's straw hut bale provides just the perfect setting to do so. Located just steps from the pool's edge, this shaded gazebo and its full-sized cushions, pillows and mini table is properly suited for pool bums of all degrees. An additional two reclining chairs and Balinese umbrella are also available for you to soak up the island's warm, tropical sunshine.
When you've gotten enough pool time, you can congregate together in the villa's living room that is open on two sides to let in the natural air and cross breeze. This open-concept space is furnished with a plush, L-shaped sofa overlooking the garden's green ivy wall and koi fish pond. Adorned with colourful blue pillows, collected Indonesian artefacts and a selection of books to choose from, this room is comfy and close by to each of the two bedrooms. Also here is a fully-equipped kitchen and a four person dining table.
Spacious and breezy, this villa will give you a wonderful sense of living with the elements, in style.
Villa Gembira is an amazing place to stay. Location is between Seminyak and Canggu, and that's just perfect! A few minute walk from the beach. Bedrooms are a dream. Place is nice and calm, no loud cars driving there. Would want to go back immediately! Watch out, because when you type Villa Gembira in Google Maps, it gives you another location that is not correct. Please use Villa Senang when you use Google Maps, that's the name of the Villa right next to Villa Gembira.
We had a lovely stay at Villa Gembira and the villa provided a real haven for us after long days out. The kids loved the pool which was perfectly situated at the back of the villa with lovely stones leading to the raised Balinese lounge area too. The maids were really friendly and cooked breakfast for us everyday - bacon and egg which the kids really enjoyed. Most of all, we loved the location. Batubelig is situated a little further out of Seminyak but for us it was perfect - quiet, sophisticated with some beautiful restaurants nearby (our favourite being Watercress - a real treat and a short 3 minute walk from the villa) We also loved the french patisserie on the main street in Batubelig who make the best cream puffs! I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this villa to anyone, the bedrooms were beautiful with air con and large comfy beds, whilst the outdoor bathrooms were a real treat. The only point to note is that the two bedrooms are quite far apart so if you're travelling with younger kids, they might be a little wary, although the villa is extremely secure and we felt safe at all times. We are looking forward to revisiting Bali in the future and are considering Villa Senang (the larger villa) next door which sleeps 10. Our recent stay has given us lovely memories for life!
Perfect & beautiful Villa , very good staff taking care of guest .. nice location ...we enjoyed stayed in the villa recommended for a stay in Bali , well done !!!
A lovely well maintained villa that took our breathe away when we arrived,in a quiet tucked away situation. But with simple and easy access to the beach and local village/town with restaurants, bars shops etc, also a short stroll to the local beach, or short taxi ride to more busy shopping and nightlife.The garden of the villa, was excellent, private and very well maintained, with a superb swimming pool. The staff were extremely helpful, polite and friendly and made the stay a pleasure. We loved it so much that we actually cancelled our flight onwards and spent an extra 2 days here. We could not recommend it more and certainly will return on our next trip to Bali.
Lovely and quiet stay at Villa Gembira. Villa staff were helpful and friendly. The villa is not in a very accessible location but its just a 7min walk away (through some shortcuts!) from some great eating places like Naughty Nuri's and Watercress. I travelled with 2 very young kids and they throughly enjoyed the pool and even loved feeding the fish in the villa's pond. The villa is not new but they take care of the grounds and if anything isn't working they will get right to fixing it. Throughly enjoyed myself and will recommend a stay here for a relaxing getaway.
our stay went really well, special mention to our cook and room service, villa very well located nearby the beach and a commercial street
