DescriptionCreated as a luxurious private residence, villa Jiva Puri embodies the most magical elements of Bali, wrapping you up in a sublime, never-forgotten experience. It is a divine five bedroom retreat family or friends, and the perfect party venue for up to 40 guests should you wish to entertain.
As you enter the cloistered realm of Jiva Puri, the outside world simply drops away. An apparently endless array of employees attends you - dedicated entirely to your party’s comfort, entertainment and relaxation. The talented kitchen staff, led by the former Executive Chef of the Grand Hyatt, can whip up anything from Balinese specialities to home favourites.
Searching out the perfect spot on the unspoilt southwest coast of Bali to build this two acre estate was the beginning of a dream come true for the owner. Jiva Puri is an architect-designed collection of buildings inspired by Balinese culture and featuring every modern comfort. The serenity is enhanced by myriad pools and frangipani trees, but if you need to break the spell by watching TV in bed, you’ll need to ask for one.
Guests sleep in individual pavilions, gathering in the beautiful communal lounge building for chill-out time. Delicious chef-cooked meals are served up at the enormous banqueting table which is surrounded by vistas of the tropical gardens and the tranquil sea. Relaxation levels are raised even higher by the round-the-clock security staff protecting guests within this luxury villa’s walled grounds.
Once you’ve become accustomed to this pampered lifestyle, you may want to explore your new kingdom. Why not venture in to the gym for a workout, or down to the private beach? The famous Nirwana golf course is 15 minutes away and there are tennis courts nearby. Clinging to the rocks beyond Jiva Puri’s black sand beach is a striking Balinese temple which can be visited by special arrangement.
But if that all sounds too energetic, there are plenty of ways to relax in the gentle Indonesian heat. Just lie back, sipping a cocktail on the sun deck beside the pool, or have a massage and beauty treatment in your own private spa. Heavenly.

EatingIf you want to feast on genuine Balinese cuisine, then Jiva Puri is the place.

As well as dining on mouth-watering dishes featuring ingredients such as peanut, lemongrass and coconut, you can learn Chef’s secrets in a Balinese cookery class.
Food at Jiva Puri is not limited to local specialities however. The chefs are also adept at classic Western dishes and are used to specific dietary requirements and special requests. All food except for breakfast is charged at an additional cost, so you just need to let the chef know whether you’d like lunches, dinners or just the occasional meal. A range of menus can be suggested, and catering for events is no problem.
Soft drinks are included, but all wines and spirits are charged as extras. The service at this luxury villa is very much a la carte and bespoke to your own needs. So whether you have complicated requests, want to eat at unusual times or throw a party, we can make it happen.

KidsThe unique beauty of this part of Bali is bound to make an everlasting impression on children. From the fascinating temples to the tropical wildlife, wild forests and inviting beaches, there’s plenty to explore.
Older children might like trips out to the markets of Ubud and Seminyak, or perhaps a bike ride through the countryside. A visit to an elephant safari park or a monkey sanctuary is easily arranged, and the Jiva Puri staff can arrange traditional dance and music performances at the villa.
The 30m swimming pool is ideal for kids to use up some energy before flopping in front of a DVD in the lounge pavilion. However, there are water features and ponds all around the villa grounds, so very young children will need to be supervised for their own safety.
If you need any equipment such as cots or highchairs, just let us know in advance and they can be provided.
OverviewEnchanting temples, draped with lush vegetation, gorgeous beaches, terraced rice fields and exotic flowers: The Indonesian island of Bali is a delectable destination.
Bali offers an enormous range of different experiences - from tranquil retreats to party hotspots, to artistic enclaves. There are refined, luxury hotels and complexes on the cliffs of the Bukit peninsular, an explosion of life in the busy town of Kuta, and quieter, laid-back beach towns in between.
The capital city is Denpasar, and this is also the location of the international airport. Coral reef surrounds the island of Bali and there are both white sand and black sand beaches. The jungle-swathed centre is mountainous, and is home to monkeys and colourful tropical birds.
Rinca island is the place to see Komodo Dragons, and all over Bali you will find sacred Banyan trees, tamarind and bamboo. Your senses will be stirred by the fragrance of native flowers such as frangipani, hibiscus and jasmine.
Boat trips, island hopping, snorkelling and mountain biking are popular activities for visitors to Bali, and spa treatments and massages are de rigeur. There are also thriving artistic communities, particularly in Ubud, and there are art markets all over the island.
Eating & DrinkingBalinese food is a delicious alchemy of Asian spices, fresh exotic fruits and fluffy rice. Local, Indonesian dishes include smoked duck, green bean salad, satay dishes and coconut flavoured curries.
The busier resorts have a wide variety of restaurants to choose from, encompassing traditional cuisine, vegetarian cafes, Italian, Mexican, and fine dining. Food stalls, known as Warungs, are everywhere you go, and there are plenty of seafood grills on the beaches.
For a really special meal, it is worth booking a table at the award-winning Mozaik, in Ubud. This restaurant offers a contemporary fusion of French and Asian cuisine dine in an enchanting garden setting. Another Balinese culinary gem is the fashionable Sarong Bali in Kuta which brings a modern twist to Indonesian flavours. There are also numerous highly-rated restaurants at Bali’s five star hotels to try.
When to goTemperatures vary between 20-33 degrees all year round in Bali, and the climate is tropical monsoon. The rainy season is between Oct-March, with the wettest months being December, January and February.
