4 Bedrooms – accommodates 8 adults.
Designed by one of Bali’s premier architects, the quality of the design and craftsmanship is evident throughout this four-bedroom villa, making ample use of leather, recycled teak and other beautiful organic materials, as well as a remarkable collection of fine art and Majapahit period stone carvings, to capture the style and spirit of Bali.
About Villa Joss
Completed in August 2010, the contemporary Balinese architecture of Villa Joss features a living room and dining room pavilion, a four bedroom pavilion, an entertainment room and business centre, and an open air ‘bale’ lounge pavilion in the spacious gardens with a 16-metre swimming pool and outdoor Jacuzzi. The architect’s other work can be seen in some of Seminyak’s finest venues including Ku De Ta. Villa Joss is named after the owner’s daughter.
The fine art traditions of Bali have been highlighted with care in Villa Joss. Upon entering the main gate, guests are greeted by a stone relief carving of Balinese Gamelan musicians which dates back to the Majapahit Kingdom’s retreat from Java to Bali in the 1500’s.
The original carving is found in one of Bali’s oldest temples, Pura Dalem in Desa Singepadu Tengah, and was reproduced at Villa Joss by a family of artisans from Batu Bulan, the most famous stone-carving village in Bali. The gorgeous entrance to Villa Joss involves a covered walkway bordered by lotus ponds with Koi fish; all draped in a hanging garden of green vines leading up to a serene seated stone Buddha set against a cascading waterfall. The bedrooms and living spaces of the 4 bedroom Villa Joss showcase beautiful fine art paintings and limited-edition litho prints by some of Indonesia’s best-known artists. Each bathroom features a stone relief carving detailing different aspects of the main temple carving inside the main gate.
The walled garden and graceful interiors offer an abundance of space, natural light and separate places to relax. Children can enjoy a BOSE surround sound movie on the 48″ flat screen TV in the entertainment pavilion while one group of adults enjoy some reading in the living room, and another group of adults lounge, surf the internet or watch sports on the 45″ flat screen TV in the garden ‘bale’. The pool deck is punctuated with big pots of flowering lotus. The interiors of the villa have been lovingly furnished, accented with colour and completed with delightful attention to detail.
The owners have made every effort to employ ‘Green Friendly’ technologies in the construction of Villa Joss including low energy lighting and a combination of solar and low energy convection water heating systems. Similarly, with the exception of certain high end imported fittings and equipment that were not available in Indonesia, every effort was made to use local materials and craftsmen. All furniture was locally made in Bali and Java.
There are four bedroom suites with polished teak floors and cabinetry in the two-storey sleeping pavilion. Three are furnished with king size beds and one with twin beds (which can be put together with a specially designed top mattress). Each has an ensuite bathroom, as well as a spacious dressing area with plenty of hanging space. Each bedroom is equipped with a 42” satellite-channel flat screen TV plus a DVD player (upon request), air-conditioning, ceiling fan, safe deposit box and WiFi internet connection. The bedroom walls are adorned with beautiful original paintings by famous Indonesian artists as detailed under the heading “The Art & Artists”.
Master Bedroom Suite
The Master Bedroom Suite is located on ground level with sliding glass doors opening onto a covered terrace beside the swimming pool. It is accented in green and gold with a warm teakwood floor and a large bright painting by Made Gunawan of the Elephant God – Ganesh – surrounded by elfish characters dancing and playing. This spacious bedroom is furnished with a king-size ornately hand carved four poster bed with white shear curtains, copper bedside lamps and a 42” satellite-channel TV positioned on a matching cabinet. There is a spacious seat at the foot of the bed and a teak cabinet dressing area with plenty of hanging space.

Mount Agung Suite
The Mount Agung Suite is the upstairs master, with a teakwood floor, a green theme, and sliding glass doors that open onto a delightful shared balcony offering big sky views of Bali’s carefree kites flying over the treetops. The section of balcony immediately outside the bedroom is furnished with a table and four chairs, making it a lovely spot for breakfast. The room has a king-size bed with matching cushioned bench, side tables with white woven aluminium bedside lamps and is equipped with a 42” satellite-channel TV. The “Odalan” oil painting on the wall by Atjeng, features a colourful Balinese beachside ceremony – much like those guests can enjoy during their stay in Bali. There is also a large dressing area with plenty of hanging space.
The Batu Belig Suite is also located upstairs, accented in gold and copper, with a teak wood floor and sliding glass doors that open onto the shared balcony. The balcony is furnished with a comfy upholstered sofa and chairs, and offers views of the greenery and rooftops of Batu Belig village.

All four spacious ensuite bathrooms are fashioned in non-slip marble floors with matching polished marble walls. All are fitted with walk-in monsoon showers, large washbasins on polished black granite vanity units (twin washbasins on the ground floor) and large format toilets. Each of the two downstairs bathrooms feature a spacious indoor section with floor to ceiling glass walls looking out to a private outdoor garden shower area. Each of the downstairs bathrooms also feature a huge bathtub carved out of a solid block of marble, as well as two showers – one indoors with views of the private garden, and one shower under the sky in the open-air garden courtyard with high walls for privacy and a pebbled floor planted with heliconias and giant taro.
Villa Joss is nestled in the heart of the Batubelig area in greater Seminyak, on Bali’s south-western coast just 100 metres from the beach, 30 minutes from the international airport (depending on traffic) and 10 minutes’ drive from the trendy Seminyak area, with its glamorous lifestyle. It is only 10 minutes from the west end of the Sunset Road, a speedy bypass route from the airport.
Since Villa Joss opened in 2010, the Batu Belig area has undergone some major development in the way of new small boutique hotels and private villas. As a result, Batu Belig has flourished as an independant shopping and dining haven, with an abundance of small fashion boutiques, homeware stores, money changers and jewelry shops dotted along the road from the beach all the way to Petitenget. An ATM is conveniently located within 2 minutes walk, as is a 24hr convenience store. There are plenty of simple warungs (eateries) within easy walking distance of Villa Joss and it is just down the street from the famous Métis fine dining restaurant, as well as newcomers Pavilion Bar and Grill and Slippery Stone Bar and Restaurant. The equally famous but more casual Naughty Nuri’s, Seminyak barbeque rib house is also close by. The newly opened and ultra-trendy Mozaic Beach Club is a mere 5 minute walk along the beach from Villa Joss.
Batubelig Beach is quiet and peaceful, while Seminyak Beach is much busier and a fun place for people watching. All along this coastline the waves are huge and the domain of the surfers. The expansive beach is a place where the local and expatriate communities gather every evening to enjoy Bali’s legendary sunsets and where guests may chance upon Balinese Hindu ceremonies involving offerings cast into the sea.
Seminyak and the neighbouring area of Petitenget boast a plethora of chic cocktail bars, exciting nightclubs, sumptuous spas, fashionable boutiques and famous restaurants including Ku De Ta, Nutmegs at Hu’u, La Lucciola, Sarong and Sardine.
Villa Joss is conveniently located close to all of the main shopping malls, Waterbom Park, and many other tourist attractions. The location offers easy access up to the mountains and rice terraces on Bali’s western slopes. It is just over one hour’s drive from the famous cultural and artistic town of Ubud, and just 10 minutes’ drive from the west end of the Sunset Road, gateway to the island.
The nearby ‘Nirwana Bali Golf Course’ was designed by Greg Norman, and voted the number one golf course in Asia. It is also situated near the dramatic, waved-lashed sea temple of Tanah Lot.For horse lovers, the ‘Umalas Equestrian Centre’ is just a few kilometres away.
