Villa Ylang Ylang - Beach chairs looking accross to Nusa Penida

About The Ylang Ylang

The Ylang Ylang East Central Bathroom

Approached through Saba village, with its idyllic scenery of verdant rice fields and coconut groves, this beachfront property resting on landscaped gardens and facing the Indian Ocean’s crashing surf is a spectacular sight. Contemporary Asian in design and lavishly appointed, the architectural grandeur of this six-bedroom property emphasises majestic dimensions to create an atmosphere of serenity and refinement.

At Villa Ylang Ylang, the pursuit of relaxation is amply catered for with a gym and infrared sauna, a top-notch theatre room and a series of intimate, luxurious outdoor spaces, while epicurean pursuits are more than satisfied by the kitchen, which produces fine dining par excellence.

Built in 2002 and lovingly designed and furnished by its owner, Villa Ylang Ylang hints of Versace and European sophistication: an elegant black and gold theme permeates throughout, while furnishings are fashioned from the finest imported fabrics. Food is served on gold plates, pool towels are by Chanel and several precious glass sculptures by the celebrated Japanese Artist Seiki ornament the villa. Guests have included international celebrities and royalty, discreetly served by the experienced yet charming villa staff.

Villa Ylang Ylang, however, is much, much more than a luxury beachside residence. The villa is named after the fragrant Ylang Ylang flower, renowned for bringing harmony, peace, warmth and passion, and its mantra is ‘passionate serenity’, which is exactly what you will find here. Radiating a positive and rejuvenating energy, Villa Ylang Ylang’s wildly beautiful beachside setting is therapeutic in itself, but add the yoga and spa treatments, health-conscious food and calming chill-out zones and you have a magical retreat. Secluded and peaceful, you may not want to leave this destination villa, but should you venture out you are within easy driving distance of many of Bali’s tourist attractions and natural splendours.

    A magical place on the beach in Bali. Our fourth trip to Bali was the best simply because we stayed at this fabulous vacation villa. Arriving with two other couples we found ourselves in a magical spot with a staff that responded quickly to every request. Manager Dewa made every effort to make our stay memorable and he succeeded in every way. The guys planned a surprise ceremony to renew everyone's vows. Dewa made the planning and execution of the surprise flawless and very easy despite the long distance. From flowers to officiant, food to dancers, he and the staff did an amazing job. The chef was top notch creating any kind of cultural dish with ease. No meal was less than perfect. The butler and house staff were excellent and made sure we always had a drink in hand... We are returning ....soon.

    Tempat yang menakjubkan! Villa yang indah, dengan kamar yang bagus, kolam renang yang bagus dan layanan yang sangat baik. Berharap untuk pergi kembali ke sana lagi, setidaknya sekali dalam hidup saya! Tenang, damai, indah dan sangat bersih. Saya merekomendasikan tempat ini. Cocok untuk keluarga, pasangan dan single, bahkan untuk orang yang mencari tempat spiritual di bali.

    We went on christmas holidays with 7 young chidren...it was almost perfect...the villa provide many diferent spaces to isolate and take some rest.the view and the beach ( very local and natural environment) are a daily entertainment... The staff is abolutely great...profesional, warm and flexible...nice people. Great holidays in a great place. Too much sculpture in the garden but it´s a question of style!

    The Ylang Ylang was absolutely amazing. We stayed there with all of our immediate family for our wedding and we were all over joyed with our stay. We became a bit spoiled where now I don't know if I can ever stay anywhere else! It was perfect. The grounds were breathtaking, the staff was more than attentive and kind, the rooms were so comfortable and the food was incredible! The pictures can not do this villa justice. From the moment you turn on the road leading up you feel like you are going to a royal palace, and the feeling continues throughout your stay.

    Our family loved staying at Villa Ylang Ylang. The food was outstanding, the staff was amazing (this was our second villa we stayed while in Bali so we could tell the difference) and the villa itself was gorgeous.

    The staff at the villa, especially Wayan and the kitchen staff, were very lovely and helpful. Service from them was excellent - they were always on standby and always took the initiative to ask if we needed anything. The chef's cooking was EXCELLENT! We asked for traditional balinese/ Indonesian food, and for it to be extra spicy, and we weren't disappointed! Absolutely fantastic, and the homemade sambals were to die for!!
