Semara Beach House, Bali

Bali Bali Bali, we just can’t get enough of it. If you’re like me and have been to Bali many times, we generally have our favorite places to stay and like the creatures of habit we are, we always choose to stay in those rather then research and try new ones. Well on our recent trip to Bali we stayed at Semara Beach House (formerly Villa Gajah Putih). It’s one of Bali’s most distinguished properties and Bali’s premier wedding and event centre. It used to be home to a local Aussie, however after they chose to move back to Australia they now rent their beautiful villa / estate / mansion out. Lucky for us!!!!

On walking onto the grounds, you jaw automatically drops. Semara beach house is beautiful, large and breath taking. It features seven bedrooms set on 105 metres of absolute beachfront manicured gardens, the estate spans across 1.33 hectares (Yup that’s over 3 acres) offering undisturbed views of the Indian Ocean. The property includes a large swimming pool, poolside gazebo, home cinema, professional kitchen, 25 staff including personal Butler and Chef from 7am to 10pm. Oh and the Chef can cook, creating the most incredible dishes daily to suit our dietary needs and holiday cravings. There are five principal bedrooms and two junior suites, affording sleeping for as many as 27 people. Each bedroom is air-conditioned with ensuite bathroom. The floor and ceiling of the bedrooms are of unique polished ironwood, and each bedroom has at least one glass wall overlooking the ocean or gardens of the property.The bathrooms have marble walls and floors, with large, high screened windows and plantation shutters.

Semara Beach House is conveniently located at Pantai Berawa in the district of Canggu, just 2km north along the beach from the famous Potato Head Beach Club. Canggu is Bali’s newest suburb bursting with new restaurants, cafes, bars and world class surfing beaches.





Finn’s Beach Club – Canggu

If all of the above hasn’t captivated yo enough to jump online and book your next holiday, maybe this will. ..Welcome Finn’s to Canggu. An Absolute beachfront bar / restaurant in front of the famous Berawa surf break, but only 10 minutes from Seminyak and if staying at Semara Beach House… pretty much on your front lawn.

Visitors to Finns can laze away the day in the sun from the comfort of single and double day beds on a white sand beach or swim in a stunning 30 metre infinity edge pool with swim up pool bar (and underwater speakers).

The striking bamboo structure was specifically designed to allow every guest to have a guaranteed sunset view. Enjoy the unbeatable 180 degree ocean views whilst listening to the cool tunes from Resident DJ’s from 4pm.
