3 bedrooms accommodates 6 adults
Hidden among charming tropical gardens within Laksmana Estate, Villa Oost Indies is a haven of tranquillity, just a stone’s throw from the beach and all the action of cosmopolitan Seminyak.
Colonial Javanese architecture and evocative antiques give a glimpse into Indonesia’s rich heritage, yet this three-bedroomed, fully staffed villa has all the modern luxury and convenience you would expect of a Bali luxury villa. Kids will love the lagoon-style pool and large gardens; adults will revel in spacious bedroom suites, and small groups or couples will be thrilled at the villa’s sensational location just a minute from Seminyak’s vibrant ‘eat street.’
About Villa Oost Indies
Amidst the glitzy boutiques, buzzing beach bars and chic restaurants of Seminyak’s golden triangle, Villa Oost (‘East’) Indies is a veritable oasis of lush tropical greenery. In these days of sleek modern minimalism, this lovely villa harks back to more traditional times, offering a true celebration of Indonesia’s rich culture and heritage.
The two-storey Javanese colonial-style sleeping pavilion is constructed of vintage teak, and wrapped in long shady verandas furnished with lazy chairs. The owners have several art galleries in Bali, and the villa’s hand-picked antiques include stone statues of Hindu deities, wardrobes of teakwood, sumptuous silks, Oriental artwork and hand-crafted ceramics. The living pavilion is itself an antique – a restored 100-year-old joglo (traditional wooden building) from Java that was once part of a nobleman’s house. The swimming pool that surrounds it is fringed in tropical flowers and cascading vines, while the sprawling lawn beyond is bordered by ornamental trees, bamboos and palms.
Fully staffed, and with three spacious bedrooms, Villa Oost Indies is well set up for families. Kids will have a blast splashing around in the lagoon-style pool and playing in the gardens, and a private chef is on hand to prepare special kids meals, as well as gourmet feasts for adults. Our helpful manager and villa attendants will make you feel right at home and treat you to the hospitality that Bali is famous for.
With such a peaceful setting it may seem hard to believe that the villa is right in the middle of Seminyak, but you need only stroll to the end of the shady lane to discover miles of golden beaches and all the fascinating boutiques and world-class wining and dining establishments of Seminyak.
Oost Indies Layout
Villa Oost Indies is entered via the living and dining joglo, which opens onto the pool and gardens beyond. To the right is a two-storey sleeping pavilion with a bedroom on each floor and a bar on the lower floor. The kitchen is adjacent and looks over a small courtyard. The separate guest wing bedroom is above the kitchen, accessed by stairs at the end of a garden path.
Main pavilion bedrooms
Situated on the upper and lower floors of the sleeping pavilion, and featuring private verandas, these two air-conditioned bedrooms (also fitted with ceiling fans) are identical in layout and design. Both are furnished with four-poster king-sized beds, antiques, artwork and curios from Asia and equipped with. Expansive walk-through dressing rooms lead to large bathrooms tiled in smooth Palimanan stone, with his and hers vanities, antique wash-stands, rain showers and bathtubs. Private sitting rooms adjacent to the bedrooms are each furnished with a sofa (converts to a single bed), desk and second TV.
Guest bedroom in private wing
A third large air-conditioned bedroom is located in a separate wing at the back of the property reached via a courtyard garden and with a private deck. Also equipped with LCD TV, DVD player and iPod dock, it is furnished with customised corner sofa, desk and king-sized bed that can be converted to twins. A spacious combined dressing room/bathroom has antique wardrobe and monsoon shower.
A beautiful, century–old Javanese joglo (traditional teak house) creates an atmospheric living and indoor dining area at Villa Oost Indies. The joglo is cooled by wooden ceiling fans and open on three sides to the lagoon-style pool that wraps around the building. A circular dining table seats eight, and a wooden sofa and rattan planters chairs are positioned to overlook the pool and garden.
A teak-panelled bar nestles on the ground floor of the two-storey pavilion with five bar stools, a fridge and sink. From here, a door leads through to a well-equipped kitchen with black granite counters, oven, coffee maker and stunning antique side board brimming with crockery, ceramics and vintage silver tea pots.
The villa’s eight-metre, lagoon-style pool flows around the joglo pavilion and is fringed by tropical plants at one end and an ancient frangipani at the other. Beyond the pool lie manicured lawns bordered by tropical shrubs, bamboo and pandanus. Four deck chairs stretch out below sunbrellas amidst the trees and a rustic outdoor bench table for eight is set in a shady grove.

Villa Oost Indies is located in Seminyak’s vibrant ‘eat street’ district, so there is a plethora of dining options to choose from. However, should you choose to stay in, a private chef is on hand to prepare gourmet meals. He is adept at Asian, Western and Indonesian cuisine. Enjoy generous breakfasts of fresh-brewed coffee, tropical fruits, pastries and eggs any style, and lunch or dinner highlights from the extensive suggestion menu, such as pumpkin and lemongrass soup, club sandwiches, chicken curry, Balinese specialities including crispy bebek (roast duck) and pepes ikan (fish in banana leaf). Pineapple crumble, and strawberry and mango cream puffs are among the tempting deserts on offer. The beautiful gardens of the villa make a lovely setting for a seafood barbecue, while those wishing to sample traditional flavours of Indonesia can order Rijstaffel – a traditional-style banquet of eight delicious dishes.
The chef will also be happy to tailor-make dishes to suit any special dietary requirements and offers a customised kids menu that will tempt even the fussiest of eaters. Meals can be ordered from the menu, or according to personal preference, but make sure to allow time for the chef to shop. All groceries and beverages are charged at market price (plus a 20% handling fee which is subject to service and tax at the prevailing rate).
Villa Oost Indies has a professional, highly trained team of staff (shared with neighbouring Villa De Suma). Our helpful villa attendants offer a full food and beverage service, will keep an eye on the kids and are happy to make recommendations of places to visit and things to do. They will also stay discreetly in the background should you prefer. Friendly and welcoming, they offer a very personalised service which can be tailored to your requirements, just discuss your needs with our helpful villa manager.
Villa Oost Indies’ friendly manager is responsible for the overall operation of the villa. His job is to oversee and coordinate the staff and property and to assist guests during their stay.
The villa’s skilled private chef prepares tasty local and international cuisine from an extensive suggestion menu and is in charge of the market shopping. He is also happy to accommodate special requests and dietary requirements.
Five attendants share housekeeping and butler duties. The same team are skilled waiters/waitresses and will assist the kitchen at mealtimes.
Garden and pool
A gardener maintains Villa Oost Indies’ lush gardens and swimming pool.
Villa Oost Indies is kept safe and secure 24 hours a day by security staff working rotating shifts. Full time security also mans the entrance to the estate.
A villa holiday in Bali makes a lot of sense for families, providing unrestricted access to your own private facilities and a schedule that’s decided by you – not the hotel. Knowing that the kids can explore independently and safely, without you having to worry about other guests, is a real plus. And with Villa Oost Indies’ expansive lawns and secret gardens, the kids will definitely want to run around! A swimming pool means you will have to keep an eye on toddlers, but a pool fence can be organised on request.
The team of friendly staff at Villa De Suma 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).
Guests are most welcome to use the well-equipped kitchen to prepare meals for fussy eaters or babies, but our chef and his team will be happy to do this for you – just discuss your requirements and meal schedules with the villa manager and he will gladly take care of the rest. The chef also offers a special kids menu with tasty treats like fish and chips, mini kebabs, grilled fish with mash potatoes and penne carbonara.
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 and inflatable pool toys) we can hire on your behalf (click here to see list of available hire items).
Petitenget Beach is just a few minutes’ walk from the villa, but please make sure to swim between the flags as the surf can sometimes be rough. Beach and villa life aside, Bali also has plenty of activities for all the family to enjoy, from water parks, to horse riding, white water rafting and volcano viewing. Check out our Things to do page – and get inspired!
