'A village of unique living spaces'
Jendela di Bali is very different to most villas in Bali.
Instead of one building with lounge, dining, bedrooms under one roof, which is typical for most vacation rentals, Jendela di Bali is a private villa comprised of a series of unique, handcrafted traditional buildings (called 'bales' in Balinese).
So, Jendela di Bali is a unique 'village' of living spaces, each artfully hand crafted to reflect traditional Balinese and Indonesian-archipelago architectural styles. Each bale is set within the estate's verdant tropical parkland gardens with a beautiful wet-edge pool, fountains, flowers and vibrant bird life, all for the exclusive enjoyment of one guest booking at a time.
When you book our villa you get exclusive use of the whole estate and villa.
So, when you book our villa you get exclusive use of the entire estate, which includes the pool, lounge and media room bales, all to yourself. You will never share the villa and pool with other guests….the whole villa estate is yours to enjoy, ensuring your complete privacy. So, whether you book one or two of the unique bedrooms, you and your group still get the entire villa and pool to yourselves. Generously, we do however offer a lower rate if you only need to use one of the two bedroom bales - but you still get the entire villa and pool to yourselves, even if you only need one bedroom bale.
