All is silent at the spacious Villa Levi - but for birdsong, the rustle of leaves and the hum of cicadas. The ambience is intimate and cosy, but the open design and lush scenery create a back-to-nature experience – albeit cloaked in sheer luxury. This modern eco-villa incorporates recycled wood and intricate stonework to create rich, earthy textures. Furnishings include marble bathtubs, humongous earthenware pots, stone-top tables and striking four-poster beds made of pale wood. As you walk around the villa, a combination of ironwood decking, polished wooden floors and smooth cool stone create a myriad of sensations underfoot.

With four private bedroom pavilions, a 16-metre swimming pool, rooftop and riverside terraces, and spa room, there is plenty of space for groups and families and the central design makes it easy to keep an eye on young children. Villa Levi is also ideal for newlyweds who want a little extra space and will (especially) love the elegant master bedroom with jacuzzi nestled in a private garden. The fabulous setting makes it ideal for small weddings, events or corporate outings too.

The smiles of the friendly staff are genuine and you will feel well cared for during your stay at Villa Levi. The chef prepares western and Indonesian meals from a suggestion menu and happily accommodates special requests. Echo Beach is an easy stroll away and those who wish to explore further can ask for the villa car and driver (at a special rate) and head to Seminyak with its world class restaurants and boutiques, or venture into the island's forested hinterland.
