It is always a good idea to get away from hurry habits, traffic jam or street life, and get lost somewhere to listen to your heartbeat. There are heaps of peaceful places to stay in. Lots of villas are available for those looking for a quiet vacation time.
There are villas around Bali that are hidden in a secret spot, which can only be found by locals or adventurous travellers. These villas are unique in their own way, sometimes in the way the property is built, other times in the certain aspects they have or a commitment they make.
We have found a few gems hidden away from the gaze of the mobs that we believe the true beauty of Bali lies in these accommodations (in alphabetical order).
