Villa Batujimbar in Sanur

  • Written by Linda Lim

After all, this is where some of the 20th-century icons spent their nights; Rupert Murdoch, Elizabeth Taylor and John Wayne, Princess Diana, Richard Branson and even Salvador Dali - just to name a few.

While the villa's park-like grounds are fringed with heritage trees, fountain-filled lotus ponds and moss-covered Balinese statues, the interiors are filled with museum-quality paintings and architectural treasures. Villa Batujimbar's Lembu Bale is especially popular as an enchanting venue for wedding ceremonies. Sanur beach's flax-gold sand, gentle lapping waves and the amber-red dipping sun provide the perfect background for an absolute beachfront wedding.

The eight-bedroom Villa Batujimbar's fascinating history has long been the lure of discerning elite travellers and while the design pedigree reflects the past, the facilities are not. You will be delighted to find a 20-metre swimming pool, a tennis court, a gym and a team of professionally-trained staff including an accomplished private chef. When the day comes to an end, indulge in gourmet dishes prepared by your private chef or take a short stroll to explore Sanur's main street. 

P.S : Julia Roberts has walked the same street too.
