Seminyak is an upscale and popular area of Bali, renowned for its endless range of dining choices, especially at Jalan Raya Seminyak and Jalan Laksmana. The variety of cuisine, style, setting, and ambiance is truly inspiring. Seminyak Beach and Petitenget Beach are a continuous expanse of grey sand stretching in both directions as far as the eye can see. To the south it becomes Legian Beach and then Kuta Beach. The sunsets here are famous, and opportunities abound to mix with the glitterati who frequent the high end beachfront establishments such as Ku De Ta.
Seminyak is more upmarket than the neighbouring towns with mostly luxury accommodation and fashionable high-end restaurants and bars. The atmosphere is much more sophisticated and laid-back than elsewhere, and the beach in particular is quieter during the day. This is also the high end spa and boutique shopping capital of Bali. Nowhere is the upscaling of Bali in recent years more obvious than here.
Situated in the Oberoi area of Seminyak, north of Legian, the Chandra Luxury Villas offer two and three-bedroom villas—both with the option of an additional bedroom or nanny’s room—providing the very best in luxury holiday accommodation. You’ll enjoy the independence of your own exquisitely decorated home and the easy-living convenience of maid service, with chef on demand. Relax by your private pool or stroll to any of the local beaches—Seminyak, Petitenget, Gado-Gado or Kudeta.
Chandra’s Luxury Villas have been designed with a fusion of traditional and modern, minimalist architectural elements which blend the exotic charm of Bali with the luxuries of a boutique resort. While each villa has its own personality (no two are furnished alike), they all share a relaxed mood that helps you to feel right at home. Whether you’re renting a villa as a family or as a group of friends, you’ll enjoy the space and privacy that comes with the carefully designed configuration. Every bedroom has its own alfresco bathroom, the living/dining area flows to a private outdoor area with pool, bale pavilion, and garden. The dwellings are stylishly separated by filtered waterways.
To ensure every moment of your time at Chandra is well spent, your villa maid serves breakfast every morning and takes care of any day-to-day service requirements. A chef is available when you prefer to dine at home. Spa, beauty, and massage treatments can be arranged on request. These can be conducted in the comfort and convenience of your own villa, or you can visit one of the many spas in the Seminyak area.

Bali offers travellers of all ages a wide variety of leisure activities to enjoy, regardless of your interests and budget.
The local culture is totally unique and permeates every aspect of Balinese life. The influence of Hinduism as the main religion is evident in the music, drama, art, costumes, and festivals which take place daily and celebrate the cycle of birth, death, and rebirth. Anthropologists believe that the Balinese are descended from the ancient Chinese, the Indians and Arabs from the west, and others who came to the island directly or via Java. Many of Bali’s temples are hundreds of years old and located in beautiful settings. Most have stories to tell which are of interest to people of all faiths. Dance is the medium through which stories have been told in Bali for generations. The costumes are as elaborate and as colorful as the moves which take significant training and agility to perfect. There are many venues around Bali to view these traditional dance performances and, if you decide to attend one, you should be sure to bring your camera.
Bali has several colourful festivals throughout the year, the most important of which is Galungan. Most festival dates are based on Bali’s two unique calendars which have systems that are alien to the Roman calendar so the dates change each year.
Bali has a tropical climate appropriate to its proximity to the equator. Year round temperatures average around 31 degrees Celsius. High humidity can be expected during the rainy season between the months of October and April when there is often daily rain. The dry season falls between the months of May and September. The air feels cooler in the dry season, because it’s less humid, so many people consider this the best time to visit Bali. Occasionally rainfall can also be expected during the dry season but usually at night or very early morning. In the months of June to August there is usually a very refreshing cool breeze all day long. The central mountain area is typically cooler than the lower coastal areas especially at night.
If you’ve been yearning for a Bali villa holiday, Chandra Luxury Villas will bring your dream to reality.
