The Villas Bali Hotel & Spa began as the vision of artist Jim Elliott. He built the first villa for himself, incorporating traditional Balinese architecture with modern, western conveniences to suit his own creative needs. Soon friends, impressed with the simple elegance and lasting comfort, pressed him to build villas for them, following his original formula. A private villa that is a world within a world. Four walls containing lush gardens, individual thatched roofed bungalows, all featuring the latest audio visual equipment and centred around a deep water swimming pool. Every ingredient for a perfect holiday.
