Villa Avalon Main House - Pool table

Things to Do

Your villa manager will have a wealth of information about places of interest and will help arrange transport and make any bookings required. Do also ask the staff about the area too; most will live nearby and can give an interesting insight into some of the fascinating aspects of local Bali life. In the meantime, here’s a taste of the many and varied activities on offer within reach of Villa Avalon.

  1. There are several surf schools in Bali, mainly based in and around Kuta and Legian, where young and old(er) can learn to surf or brush up on their skills.
  2. Groove to fantastic music and soak up Ibiza’s party vibes at the newly opened Café del Mar. Walking distance from Avalon Villa, this 10000sqm beachfront pool club just may be where you choose to spend your evenings.
  3. Enjoy sundowners or an evening meal at La Laguna, just outside the entrance of the villa. A restaurant and bar entirely made out of driftwood, this is probably the most romantic spot you’ll find on the island, with magical sunset views over the lagoon and the beach.
  4. The most exclusive Bali trekking tour promises breath-taking vistas and heart-warming encounters while supporting sustainable social change in the once-forgotten villages of Muntigunung. Elite Havens is a proud partner of Muntigunung Community Social Enterprise.
  5. Explore the scenic rice-field landscape and rural villages by bicycle; a great way to get under the skin of the ‘real’ Bali.  Stop off at a local warung (café) to sample some basic Balinese fare or cool off with a cold drink.
  6. If you’ve always dreamed of galloping along a beach or riding through villages bordered by rice fields, now’s your chance.  Bali Horse Adventure and Kuda P Stables (both in Pererenan) can arrange horse riding tours, as well as children’s riding lessons and horse-drawn carriage outings.
  7. Sports enthusiasts should head to Bali’s prestigious Canggu Club, with its state-of-the-art gym and tennis and squash courts (most of our villas include complimentary membership, otherwise day membership is available ). Round off your work-outs with some fine international dining, then stock up on gourmet goodies at the nearby Deli.
  8. Visit the mystical Hotel Tugu (Bali’s first museum-hotel) studded with priceless Indonesian artworks and antiques and its award-winning spa offers age-old Eastern therapies. If you’re planning a honeymoon, this makes a wonderful first night venue. The hotel’s restaurants offer authentic Chinese and Indonesian fine dining, as well as an international menu, in a variety of unique settings. At the rustic Waroeng Tugu you can taste the traditional Javanese and Balinese cuisine of bygone centuries.
  9. Make a pilgrimage to sacred Pura Tanah Lot, one of Bali’s biggest tourist magnets.  Perched high on a craggy, wave-lashed rock, this ancient sea temple is best savoured at sunset; be sure to receive a blessing from the Hindu Priests (and watch out for the monkeys, who are very adept at helping themselves to anything from snacks to sunglasses and even cameras!)
  10. You could eat out at a different restaurant in Seminyak every night – for months – and still not run out of options.  Jalan Laksmana (also known as Jalan Oberoi and Jalan Kayu Aya) is Bali’s fashionable ‘Eat Street’, offering plenty of high-end restaurants including Sarong and Nutmegs at Hu’u Bar.  La Lucciola Restaurant is great for sunset drinks, as is The Breeze at The Samaya.  While Ku Dé Ta is still the place to see and be seen, two new beachclubs, Cocoon and Potato Head, are classy seaside alternatives.  Then there’s La Plancha, a rustic beach bar between Double Six and Gado Gado, very popular, good tapas, very reasonably priced drinks, with live music and DJ events.  A short taxi ride will bring you to Sardine for elegant seafood, Métis for French Mediterranean cuisine, or to Hog Wild in Bali, famous for barbecue ribs and wicked Martinis.   Mid-range dining options here include Wah Wah Gourmet Burger Winebar which specialises in sassy burgers with sexy connotations, and numerous other cheap ‘n cheerful options.
  11. Covering 3.8 hectares of tropical parkland in Kuta, Waterbom Bali has 16 water slides (including The Climax with its 360 degree loop) to entertain the young and the young at heart. A great family day out, but go early to beat the crowds.

Villa Avalon, Canggu 7 bedroom luxury villa, Bali Elite Havens

Welcome to Villa Avalon – a glorious seven-bedroom haven, a stone’s throw away from Kayu Putih Beach, just north of Seminyak. If you are visiting Bali for its nightlife, the location doesn’t get better than this. With fabulous restaurants like La Laguna right outside its door and beach clubs such as Cafe del Mar a further few steps away, this is perfect for people who’d love to hear the party beats from their own swimming pool.

Three individual villas make up Villa Avalon – the iconic four-bedroom main villa, two-bedroom Avalon II, and one-bedroom Avalon III – each set in beautifully landscaped gardens complete with their own private pools. Book just one villa or all three; the flexibility of bedroom configurations gives you the choice of anything from one to seven bedrooms. The villas suit a range of travellers, from honeymooners who will love the cosy one-bedroom Avalon III, to groups of friends looking forward to party in Bali.

Award-winning Balinese architect Popo Danes curated the design, crafting contemporary interiors with an Asian twist using Indonesia’s abundant natural materials – elaborately carved sandstone walls, polished teakwood floors, paras stone sun decks, marble basins and terrazzo baths. Vast living areas and individual bedroom suites are embellished with rare antique furniture, modern classic pieces and handsome Balinese paintings and artefacts. Coffee table books on Asian design and a library of interesting fiction feed the mind, while within the extensive gardens, heritage teakwood joglos, koi-filled lotus ponds with riverstone water features, moss-covered statuary and the abundance of tropical blooms and manicured bonsais feed the soul. Just outside the boundary walls, you will find a sacred shrine, the surf beyond and some of the island’s best clubs and bars.

Feeding the body is the task of the resident chef, who happily whips up Indonesian and international meals from a suggestion menu. He is one of the ‘nothing-is-too-much-trouble’ staff, dedicated to making you feel special.

With three pools, a pool table and extensive gardens, Villa Avalon is a haven you will not wish to leave. If you do manage to tear yourself away, you will find Kayu Putih Beach just beyond the villa’s entrance and facing it, some great sunset bars. Five minutes’ stroll down the beach are W Hotel and Potato Head, and other notable Seminyak establishments are just 10 minutes further (even less by taxi). The villa’s central location with access to bars, clubs, restaurants and boutiques, makes it a hit with the holiday crowd that craves proximity to all the action.
