When I first stepped through the door into this private oasis, I felt like I had stumbled across some secret place that was very special indeed. I can only describe Villa Bali as a lovingly created work of art, where ‘reclaimed and restored’ takes precedence over ‘shiny and new’ – yet with the artist owner’s good taste and sophistication, the whole scene comes together in one of the most stylish, unique and appealing villas you can find in Marbella

Bohemian chic with a one-of-a-kind feel
Open the door to Villa Bali; an eclectic villa that blends island cool with bohemian chic, Spanish architecture and rustic French charm
Beamed ceilings, tropical artwork, whitewashed interiors, and arched doorways greet you. And always, French doors that open onto the home’s characteristic bamboo gardens, palm trees and Buddha statues; a diverse and homey charm that gives Villa Bali a one-of-a-kind feel.
Villa Bali’s main home, which spans 600 square metres and 4 bedrooms (a master suite + 3 additional guest suites), extends through to six more individual ‘Casitas’ with private access. Each casita measures a spacious 40 to 100 square metres and features one bedroom, en-suite bathroom and private patio. Some also have an additional living space and sofa beds for children. As a whole, the property offers 10 suites, and a unique layout that is well suited to multi-generational families, several families travelling together.
The main home’s living area forms the heart of the villa; a gathering space that surprises like a photo-shoot from House and Garden Magazine. (Not surprising, as Villa Bali has been featured in several interior magazines!) Beamed ceilings frame huge white sofas, which in turn ring a large fireplace, bordered on either side by built-in bookshelves packed with novels, travel magazines, glossies and every kind of coffee-table book imaginable – no TV required! And that’s fitting, since we’ll only outfit Villa Bali with TVs in your room, leaving the main living space for focusing on each other.
To round out the perfect gathering spot, you’ll find a Buddha-adorned centre table, lit with candles and offering a collection of local information designed to guide you during your stay. The alcove’s grand piano completes the scene for a perfect evening at home, cosied up around an open fire with friends and family or out on the sumptuous summer deck overlooking the saltwater pool.
The villa’s boutique dining room bids you good-morning with a coffee machine and daily continental breakfast. In summer months, the room opens onto the veranda for breakfast al fresco. Next door, the vintage-styled kitchen offers an antique farmhouse vibe and is well equipped to cater to large groups: whip up feasts yourself, or ask us to arrange a private chef. Villa Bali is the owner’s own home, so you will find everything you could wish for ready at your disposal.
When it comes to the villa’s airy bedrooms, each is lovingly styled by Villa Bali’s French owner and is as unique as the paintings she has created to decorate each space. Among other décor delights, look forward to delicate French touches, private outdoor gardens, the odd four-poster bed, myriad reading nooks, and terracotta floors, all in a zesty colour palate of limes, corals, and turquoise on a crisp, white background.
Facing the sea it hides an oasis of escapism
Villa Bali resides in one of the most established and luxury urbanisations in Marbella, just minutes from the Golden Mile yet completely secluded from urban worries.
Tropical leafy gardens with towering palms abound, and the entire area faces the sea, where the glittering Med stretches south toward the golden shores of Morocco.
Your first glimpse of Villa Bali is like discovering a secret garden: tall privacy walls conceal lush courtyards with soft grass, and flowering bougainvillaea and blue plumbago that tumble over pergolas. Behind these walls, hides an oasis of escapism – a sparkling saltwater pool, relaxing terraces and sun-drenched loungers shaded by billowing white curtains. In a word, it’s paradise.
Enter through an interior patio, its roof a summer explosion of tangled blooms. A statue of Buddha, gurgling water features and small seating coves welcome you immediately. If that’s not enough to set the scene, the main home’s spacious terraces, beckoning hammocks, giant palms and lovely slopes of La Concha mountain round out the ambience.
The villa’s garden features an enormous expanse of lawn, dotted with tropical and Mediterranean blooms and bushes – a true masterpiece from one of Marbella’s greatest landscape architects. Balinese daybeds sprinkle the view, which is undeniably spectacular, but your eyes are inextricably drawn to first the Mediterranean and then the large pool, the social centrepiece of Villa Bali.
Cool saltwater invites you to dive in for a refreshing swim in the 15 × 10-metre pool, surrounded by more palms, exotic plantings and a generous smattering of sun loungers. Songbirds trill from every tree and the villa’s own aviary, their melodies harmonizing with the whisper of a breeze and the pool’s gently lapping waves.

The main house is the hub of the social and living spaces, both inside the spacious living room with an extensive library and grand piano, and out on the deck overlooking the pool, where you will spend most of your time in summer.
Several of the suites also have their own indoor living space, as well as outdoor patios with day beds, so you can easily to enjoy some relaxing time away from the group.
Meals are an informal affair with a hotel-style breakfast room opening out on to the veranda, (which can also be laid out with one large table setting), and an additional breakfast table in the main country-style kitchen. In summer, breakfast is usually served in the shady patio.
Villa Bali is the owner’s home, but she lives in a separate apartment when the villa is occupied, leaving the main kitchen available you to make a snack.
Since the kitchen is small and the maids will require full use of it for your breakfast service, we recommend guests have a chef come in and do the cooking for your main meals to include the cleaning away afterwards. We can also assist with chefs for a poolside-paella type meal for lunch.
Villa Bali is all about relaxing! The main villa has a large veranda overlooking the pool, while around the back are shaded patios with gently flowing water features and quiet corners.

Enjoy the local area
Villa Bali is located in the leafy, luxury suburbs of Sierra Blanca, framed by the distinctive ‘La Concha’ mountain and just 2km from the beach. A gentle drive will take you to glamorous beach front of the Marbella Club, and it’s just a couple of minutes drive to the glamorous port of Puerto Banus.
For eating out you are spoiled for choice within a 2km round trip, from Michelin-grade dining at the likes of the Hotel Puente Romano or Melia Don Pepe, to stylish out-of-town hot spots like Finca Besaya. Along the beach there is a mixture of family run ‘chiringuitos’ serving up the fresh catch of the day, while chic beach bars like the Ocean Club offer gourmet cuisine with a taste of the Mediterranean.
For down time, take a stroll around the boutiques of Marbella’s old town and stop for tapas near Orange Tree square. Or you can easily visit typical white villages further along the coast, like Mijas and Benahavis, or smaller harbours like Capo Pino and the original fishing village of La Cala for a really Spanish vibe.
Situated in on the shores of the Mediterranean Sea, Marbella is a resort known widely for it’s glitz and glamour, but for those to choose to explore the area you will find plenty of Spanish charm, culture and character . The resort is renowned for its sunny climate that puts the ‘Sol’ in Costa del Sol, and here we have mile upon mile of beaches, white villages, bustling shops and breath taking scenery, making it an ideal holiday destination for families and groups of friends alike.
In Marbella you will find something for all tastes, from world-class cuisine to characterful tapas bars, from local produce to designer labels, and from beach to breathtaking mountain walks
