“Shikumen Villa is a unique and special experience. There are a lot of Villa’s in Seminyak but not many that have such a nice attention to detail. The location is perfect, protected from the hustle and bustle yet still right in the centre of Seminyak. “ Jono

The structure is antique, but contemporary luxury is a key feature of the Shikumen Villa. The beds are big and comfortable, and dressed with bamboo linen for that extra special feel on your skin.

The plunge pool is set beneath stunning frangipanis, with two double day beds for relaxing with your favourite drink, and family or friends. Or sit in the pool itself and chat to friends sitting in the nearby living room. Seminyak can be busy, but this delightful courtyard is a great place to just chill out when you need it.

“We cancelled our other accommodation and decided to stay the whole time here.” Kevin

Blending antique wooden Chinese houses with contemporary design, the 2 bedroom Shikumen Villa, and the adjoining 1 bedroom Shikumen Suite are unique, elegant and beautiful. Book separately or combine to make a 3 bedroom villa.

“Tucked away, gorgeous room, and private pool area – spacy, balinese and lovely – really enjoyed these little boutique villas & suites.” Guest, Agoda

About Vita, Rini, Shinta

Grahame and Lou designed and built the Bali Ginger Villa.

Before moving to Bali we both worked as professional theatre artists in Australia for more than 20 years, Grahame as a Director/Writer and Lou as a Designer/Production Manager. Our theatre work toured extensively around Australia as well as internationally to countries including Indonesia, Singapore, Canada, USA, Japan, Korea, Russia and Mexico.

Inspired to create theatre that highlighted environmental issues, we travelled throughout Borneo and Sumatra researching about the plight of orang-utans in 1990, eventually developing Visiting The Relatives as a theatre production. Visiting The Relatives was rehearsed, written and designed in the steamy jungles of Northern Sumatra, “on location” at an orang-utan rehabilitation centre in 1992. This unique development process was challenging and innovative, and would eventually lead to projects about elephants (Ivory Circle, created in Thailand in 1993) and bears (Deliverance of Dancing Bears, written and designed in Turkey in 1995). Visiting The Relatives opened in Perth to sold out seasons and critical acclaim, and subsequently toured nationally and internationally over a 5 year period, making it one of Australias most successful theatre productions.

In 1990 one of our tours took us via Bali and after that we just kept on coming back until it became an annual visit. During a couple of these visits Grahame began writing and Lou designing two of our most successful touring productions, ‘Frog Opera’ and ‘Silverfish’.

With 1 son grown up and married and the second still in primary school we took the opportunity to move to Bali and make it our home in 2007. We hope to bring that same creativity and flair to our life in Bali. Grahame thrives on the challenge of designing and building in Bali whilst Lou is passionate about creating memorable moments for visitors and takes care of much of the detail and finishing design.

Vita, Rini, Shinta purchased this villa in 2011

Why Vita, Rini, Shinta chose Bali

While the structure is antique, contemporary luxury is a central aspect of the Bali Ginger Villa. Refurbished as unique 2 bedroom, luxury villa accommodation. The Bali Ginger Villa is complete with spacious living room, fully equipped kitchen, private swimming pool, Cable TV, DVD player, Free Wi-Fi, complimentary bath products and oriental courtyard setting. It can be extended to a 3 bedroom villa by booking the Bali Ginger Poolside Super Deluxe Suite which has connecting gate and includes antique ceramic Chinese hip-bath set to the side of the enormous 1 bedroom suite. The Bali Ginger Villa can be combined with the Bali Ginger Poolside Super Deluxe Suite to create a 3 bedroom private villa. The well trained staff are discreet and attentive, providing personalized guest service. Packages can include your own cook to prepare a delicious cooked breakfast for you at a time that suites you in the villa.

What makes this villa unique

Only 500 metres from the beach, it is the perfect location for a relaxing and sensuous holiday with numerous options for you to explore, including the option to stay right where you are. Tucked away down a secluded lane, but right in the centre of Bali’s premiere tourist district, the Shikumen are located in fine company; fine dining, fine shopping, fine night-life.

Ficamos 4 noites. Vila precisando de manutenção, toalhas velhas, banheiro c odor , e decoração precisando de mudar, última noite que choveu pouco mas foi suficiente P ter goteira em cima da cama em um dos quartos. Achamos longe da praia se pensar que estava muito quente para andar uns 15 min . Café da manhã c poucas opções e cansativo P 4 noites.

A única coisa que valeu foi o atendimento de todos os funcionário que foram bem cordiais ,

This is our second stay here and wont be our last!

The villa itself is absolutely stunning, set around a cute plunge pool and beautiful tropical gardens. No photoshop with the villa pictures, what you see is what you get.The staff are friendly and helpful, with no request being too much trouble. The location is perfect, a 5 min walk to the restaurants, shops and Seminyak beach, but set enough back from the main road, so you miss out on the noise.

The booking process and airport transfer was easy, Wifi was good.

Of special note- the bamboo sheets used in the villa are divine and the banana pancakes for breakfast were the best Ive ever eaten :)

Great time, pleasant staff

  • 4 of 5

The layout of the dual suites with a pool in the middle was great. It allowed us and our party to hang out together, but also keep our privacy. Room had a great shower, English speaking channels, comfortable bed, and cold A/C. Outside of room, staff was very helpful and friendly, and the villa was within walking distance of many different shops, restaurants, convenience store, and beach. I very much enjoyed my stay and would recommend it to anyone interested in the area.

Sisters in Seminyak

  • 5 of 5

Shikumen Villa is every bit as gorgeous as the photos portray, but what they don't tell you is just how gorgeous the staff are too. Vita and her staff made our stay that extra bit special. The villa was exceptional - a welcome reprieve from the heat each day. Close to everything - restaurants, beach, shops, supermarket, bars - what more could you want? Absolutely recommend this place and will definitely be back!
