About Villa Cemara
Welcome to Villa Cemara – a magnificent Bali-style residence in Sanur blessed with an amazing 60 metres of absolute beachfront and blissful ocean vistas across the Lombok Straits to the islands of Nusa Penida and Nusa Lembongan.
The location is simply incomparable! Imagine slipping through the villa’s private gate, across the golden sand and into the warm shallow waters of the silken sea. Or taking a leisurely stroll (or energetic bike ride) on the adjacent promenade that stretches for eight kilometres along the beautiful south-east Bali coast.
Designed by famed Balinese architect Popo Danes, Cemara’s five ocean-facing living and sleeping pavilions feature light interiors liberally adorned with finely crafted local materials: alang-alang thatched roofs; Palimanan and terrazzo floors; river-stone walls; elaborately carved and gilded teakwood doors. Artefacts and original paintings by acclaimed Balinese artists grace the air-conditioned bedroom suites, where sublimely comfortable beds dressed in crisp cotton invite restful slumber.
The enormous open-sided living pavilion is the villa’s social heart – just the spot for casual breakfasts and candlelit dinners prepared by the accomplished villa cook. Choose from an excellent suggestion menu, or take advantage of the abundance of seafood on your doorstep and enjoy grilled fish on the barbecue.
The entire family will appreciate the cool beach vibe here. Kids can build sandcastles and paddle in the shallow waters; older guests can kite-surf or take to the sea on a jetski. After a refreshing dip in the pool, how about a massage in the balé or in the comfort of your room? At the end of the day, fall asleep lulled by the waves lapping the shore.
The friendly staff will look after you well, and are happy to organise everything from a gamelan troupe, yoga teacher, or a car and driver for day trips to rice terraces and mountains, Seminyak or Ubud.
