Bali is Indonesia’s most popular tourist location and is considered one of Asia's premier tropical island destinations. Steeped in history and renowned for its artistic way of life, Bali is a peaceful contrast to some of the more frantic destinations Asia has to offer. The inner peace and creative talents of the Balinese has attracted artists the world over fascinated by local dancers, silversmiths, wood carvers, potters and painters that seem to pervade throughout the island. The abundant verdant fields and surrounding sea have long supplied Bali with an easy surplus of food leaving time for life’s more artistic past times. As a result everything in Bali has a creative and religious element centred around the local Banjar (residents association) – little, adorned temples are everywhere, doors are covered in intricate carvings, huge kites ward off evil spirits and colourful roadside ceremonies bring traffic to a standstill. Bali is a popular destination principally from Australia and Asia but also from all over Europe. The island welcomes thousands of visitors each year to a relaxing lifestyle, stunning beaches, world class surf, vibrant villages, and spectacular scenery all with an exquisite tropical climate. Located approximately two hours’ flying time from Singapore the island is serviced by an international airport at Denpasar with direct flights to and from many major cities in Asia, Europe and Australia and many more via Jakarta, Indonesia’s capital. The island offers an impressive range of leisure and lifestyle amenities including world-class golf courses, wonderful seascapes for surfing, diving and snorkelling as well as luxurious spas, chic boutiques, tropical forests, towering volcanoes and international cuisine.
Bali is so picturesque that you could be fooled into thinking it was a painted backdrop: rice paddies trip down hillsides like giant steps, volcanoes soar through the clouds, the forests are lush and tropical, and the beaches are lapped by the warm waters of the Indian Ocean.

"First class luxuary that has to be experienced to believe it."
From the moment I booked this experience was easy. No hiccups with payment and lots of instructions to ensure a smooth and safe arrival. Met at the airport by a qualty driver (Putu)we were driven to a villa that on arrival was simply breath taking. Met by warm and friendly staff who presented us with a drink and towels to refresh our already hot faces. A small tour of the villa followed by an amazing meal. This was the start of something that was repeated over and over. The food was amazing and the chef was very accomodating. Meals were delicious and amazingly presented. Eating areas were devine inside and out. The villa is very private and is complimented by a magnificent garden and swimming pool that was a constant source of relaxation. The connection with the Cedana day Spa provided pampering that is dreamy. The drivers were friendly and knowledgable and provided constant historical and torist information going above and beyond any expectations. The bathing areas were simply out of this world. I woul;d definitely recommend this to anyone stating that without doubt it is the best holiday experience I have ever experienced. Can't wait to do it again and again.

We (family with 2 kids of 7 and 4 years old) stayed in Villa Empat for 1 week in August 2011. In one word it was GREAT. The villa is excellent, modern with a Bali touch, spacious, very nice decorated and clean. The staff is even better, they really take care of you and no request is too much for them. We had Putu as driver and he showed us some nice spots on the Island. We can also recommend in-house dining as the food is very good and well prepared. The owner (Alannah) is nice and responsive during the reservation process; she even followed up with a call after 2 days to check if all was fine in the villa!
The villa is in a (very) quite neighborhood, that's why it is perfect to have the car and driver available. However you can walk to the beach, which is not so nice compared with other beaches on the Island. Overall, we had a great stay in Villa Empat and we really recommend it to everyone (couples and families).
"If you want to relax and be spoiled, this is the place"
The owner-Alannah Hutton is great to book with. Fast and efficient booking process.
We were picked up by the driver supplied by alannah and taken to the Villa. Staff were waiting with cold drinks and towels. The chef started dinner and we were waited on all evening. Slept in very comfortable beds and woke to the morning chef who cooked our eggs, bacon or what ever we asked for. The staff were amazing and we appreciate the extent they went to to make every second of our stay the most relaxing it could be.
The Villa itself is awesome. The Bali style open plan is fantastic. The pool was perfect. The covered Pergola with power was perfect for those who choose to surf the net and relax by the pool. We all agreed that this was the most relaxing holiday we have ever had.
Our teenage children informed us that the beach which is 10 minutes walk is great for surfing. I did find the black sand a little off putting and preferred to spend time in the Villa. The on call driver is a fantastic bonus. just call him 30-45 minutes before needed and go anywhere you want. One day we went to an elephant park, the next shopping etc.
For those wanting a fast pace location near shops and restaurants stay in Kuta. For those who want a beautiful big Villa with great staff and don't mind driving some days to go where you want this is the place. I have already recommended it to my close friends.
Thank you alannah our stay was perfect.

"A stunning villa in a beautiful location"
Review Submitted: May 6, 2011 Date of Stay: April 2011
Our family thoroughly enjoyed 7 nights in Villa Empat in april 2011. The villa was beautifully presented and featured modern decor with a Balinese flavour. We found that the floor plan worked very well and provided flexibility for our family to make the most of our holiday. The private grounds, including pool, were beautifully maintained and a joy to use. Villa Empat is one of a small group of 9 villas where each enjoys total privacy. Located in Canggu (pronounced 'changoo'), about 15 minutes by cab from Seminyak, the villa is very close to Echo Beach and numerous cafes and restaurants. With little traffic we elected to hire a scooter (through villa staff) which made exploring the relatively quiet roads in this more rural location easy and safe. The villa's staff were outstanding - very accommodating and helpful in the usual Balinese way. The villa manager, housekeepers and chef are lovely people and did everything they could to ensure we had a comfortable stay. The food prepared for us was excellent and we have no hestitation in recommending it. All dealings in regard to bookings and payment was professionally handled direct with the owner, Alannah, who is passionate about her villas and committed to ensuring that her guests have a perfect stay. We look forward to returning to Bali again soon with our children and hope to stay at villa empat again to enjoy the luxury, location and value for money we felt we had in this last visit.

INCREDIBLE PLACE AND SERVICE
Review Submitted: January 31, 2011 Date of Stay: January 2011
Most of all we impressed that the luxurious Empat villa merged with the real Balinese life. Very fast we forgot about a time and we be?ame a part of this, thanks to respect like in families with the warmest relation. Sure we will go there again, and of cource we will recomend this place only to our best friends. Many thanks to Noeman, Putu, Made and of course You, Alannah!

We feel we must commit how much we enjoyed our stay at Villa Empat. So many elements made it an unforgettable experience
- the location (next to rice fields, 15 minutes walk from the beach);
- the villa itself (clean, well appointed, comfortable, luxurious);
- the island of Bali;
but most of all what made this holiday so exceptional were the staff. They were brilliant, whether by recommending and booking restaurants in the area, or cooking superb meals in the evenings (just as good as a restaurant, and a lot cheaper). We ended up joking that they must have hidden microphones somewhere, because they just seemed to pop up at exactly the right time to be helpful.
Finally a word of praise for the owner, Alannah, who made the booking process so painless, and obviously takes great care in choosing her staff.
"Like us, you just want the best villa in Bali - this is it"
My fiancee and I were confused by the hundreds of villas available for rent, we chose Villa Empat because it ticked all our boxes = Canggu, Echo Beach, nice pics. We didn't realize it would be as wonderful as it was...
The villa's location really is the best in Bali, and this was our third time there. Echo beach is 10 mins away with its easy, cheap, vibey cafes and restaurants that all deliver, the Canggu beaches are the best surf in Bali for beginners to expert with Prerenan, Tugu and and Old man your local breaks, Canggu's gems like Deus are three minutes away, and Canggu itself is a Bali rice paddy postcard, and home to the all discerning residents and expats, the state of the art villas, with Seminyak only 10-15 mins drive away...
But the villa itself is simply the luxury holiday home you've always wanted. The rooms are huge, the gardens are gorgeous, the beds and bathrooms like a 5 star, the pool and bale and everything, are just perfect. The colors and the vibe are just spot on.
We called the housekeeping staff our little fairies, they were so professional, friendly, and worked so hard we literally didn't have to take a plate to the sink or hang out our own rash vest. Ever present when needed, but invisible so that our privacy was paramount. We cannot convey how great they were in words, you just have to experience that type of service with a smile, that is too often sorely lacking in expensive hotels.
They take their lead from alannah, who owns and runs Villas Empat and Delapan, which are both in the same complex of villas. Alannah has clearly walked through and thought of every conceivable need, from super fast broadband, to Ipod stereo, to loads of Dvds, seriously great bedding, the phone numbers of every cafe and restaurant that delivers in the villa phone - like your own holiday house.
Our 3 week experience ended with a courtesy call from alannah on the villa phone on our last night, wishing us a great holiday and thanking us for staying there. We gave her our great feedback, and the pride and affection for her staff and business were clear.Total, genuine class.
When we were leaving, Made, who oversees the housekeeping staff, told us the next family from Germany moving in was back for their 3rd time at Vila Empat. We'll catch up quickly. We just loved it.
Kid, friends, family and special occasion friendly.
"A good time in Bali"
My husband and I (and our one year old) stayed at Villa Empat from the 7 to 21 of February 2011. We had a great time and loved the pool. Having a driver was a real luxury as we were able to tour the island with ease. All of the staff were very friendly and accomodating and our drivers were both exceptional. We had breakfast made for us everyday and the food was delicious. I would hightly recommend this villa and thought it was a good value for the price.

now that we are at home again we really know what we are missing. The excellent interior of villa Empat, your friendly staff, especially our excellent driver, and the beauty of Bali's landscape.
We really enjoyed our stay and would like to thank you and also all people who take care of us for that impressive days we had.
We hope to return.

I was a little nervous as we came through customs at Denpasar airport. I didn't know if our driver was going to be there, and then what to do with my 2 little children. Putu, who I came to know and trust implicitly, was at the reception gate ready and enthusiatic to take us off to our amazing destination.
When we arrived, the villa was prepared like a dream. The photos do not do it justice. Flowers on the beds, welcoming smiles from the staff, the luxury and promise of what was to come, as well as the beautifully prepared meal waiting for the tired travellers to enjoy. I am a seasoned traveller with very high standards, and this was nothing short of bliss. I was more than impressed.
The pleasure of my stay did not end there. The staff, Nyoman the housekeeper, Made the manager and Putu the driver were really quite incredible. Nyoman's quiet efficiency was breathtaking. My two young boys can be quite demanding, but she was so calm and happy to oblige. Nothing was too much trouble. I am humbled in my gratitude. Similarly to Putu. He was friendly, knowledgeable and so safe and accommodating. The kindness and thoughtfulness that he consistently showed was certainly appreciated. Made, the villa manager was equally accommodating. Again, such a calm manner, where nothing was too much trouble. He just made things happen so smoothly. I could call him (on the provided mobile phone) and he would fix any problem or concern, no matter how trivial. This could range from a restaurant booking, to arranging a massage in the villa at 9 pm, to organising the staff around my schedule. Nothing was too much trouble. Thank you so much to all of the wonderful people, including those not mentioned, who made our stay truly memorable.
The villa itself was exrordinary. Beautiful fittings, large rooms and nothing like a plunge pool! We are talking lap length luxury. The colours and artwork throughout the villa were inspiring. How can I recreate this at home? The villa captures the spirit of Bali with the added bonus of understated quality and artistic awe. It really is beautiful.
I would wholeheartedly recommend Villa Empat to anybody travelling to Bali who is looking for an extraordinary experience. In some ways I am afraid to give my true feelings about it, because I want to keep it all for myself! But really, I was so impressed with the accommodation and service at Villa Empat. There are many villas in Bali spruiking their wares. Villa Empat was such a good find and I believe terrific value for money. As soon as I returned to Australia, I was checking for flights back to Bali again. And hopefully, Alannah the owner of Villa Empat will be able to offer me another vacancy. I have certainly been too spoilt now to stay anywhere else.

My wife and I spent three days at Villa Empat with our daughter and her husband, and can not imagine a better experience. The owners have created an extraordinary environment that, fair warning, might spoil you for any other vacation spot. The villa itself is stunning and very well appointed and set in a very picturesque location (the pictures and description barely do it justice), but the staff was fantastic. They couldn't do enough to make our stay perfect yet were discreet and very professional. You could tell they took pride in offering good service. Two nights we took advantage of the in-house chef, and had two of the best meals we had on Bali. Very highly recommended! We could have easily never left the villa and been very happy. But we did.
Having a driver made venturing out stress free, even short trips to the market or for lunch. I didn't always feel safe putting my life in the hands of some Bali drivers, but Udin was an exception -- he was unflappable and the car was very comfortable. We also rented motor scooters, mostly to get down to the beach and to get around the village to take photos. The closest beach, Echo Beach, is one of the better surfing beaches on the West coast of Bali, so while we enjoyed the villa, and the scenery and sunsets, our son-in-law got in his fill of surfing. The Beach House restaurant at Echo Beach is a nice hangout and has a good barbecue some evenings. there are also several other small restaurants near the Beach House that are very good for a casual meal or cocktail.
Finally a note about Made, the manager, and Alannah, the owner :They couldn't have been nicer to work with. Both seemed genuinely dedicated to making our whole experience positive and we appreciated their efforts. Alannah actually made the process of booking the villa and planning the trip via the Internet and email enjoyable. They've done a great job of putting together a perfect getaway, and we would highly recommend it to anyone.
My daughter is already planning our next trip to Bali, and Villa Empat will definitely be at the top of our list. Not sure we'd be happy staying anywhere else.
Fantastic Family Vacation spot

We were extremely satisfied with the villa, staff, and service provided by Villa Empat.
The villa itself is well laid-out, clean and relaxing in quiet neighbourhood with green everywhere. The pool was a big hit with the kids and we had trouble getting them out at the end of the day.
The staff of Villa Empat were extremely helpful and professional and attentive to all of our requests and the Balinese hospitality was appreciated. The owner of Villa Empat was also very responsive to all of our requests and the booking was seamless.
We highly recommend Villa Empat to families and those just wanting to get away from it.
We were a party of 5 with 3 adults and 2 children and will be back very soon.

Review Submitted: September 23, 2009 Date of Stay: September 2009
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Empat Villa. The villa is located in a quiet area amongst rice paddies and only a 15 - 20 min walk to the ocean. Its the perfect place if you want to be away from the hustle and bustle. If you get a chance hire a scooter and go for a ride around the area, I didn't want to do it at the time, but I did and it was wonderful. The villa is beautiful, you could easily spend all your time just relaxing around the pool and getting in house massages. You also have the option of an in house cook, we highly recommend using this facility, the food is fantastic. The staff are wonderful, they go out of their way to make your holiday stress free and totally relaxing. Our biggest regret was doing so much sight seeing and not enjoying what we had at the villa. We stayed at the villa for our anniversary, but it would also be fantastic for a honeymoon, family holiday or for two couples. If you are considering the villa for your next holiday we would definitely recommend, you book now.

I was staying in Villa Empat for 2 weeks in June 2009, and I would admit that this was the best holiday I ever had. Staying in the villa was a great way of experiencing real Bali away from the tourist crowds, while also enjoying utmost comfort and hospitality.
The location of the villa was ideal: it it situated in a peaceful and picturesque village, within 5 minutes drive from the nearest surfing beach and casual dining spot. In some 20-30 minutes you will be in upmarket Seminyak with its classy bars and restaurants or at the kids-friendly Kuta Beach. The layout of the villa was ideal for our group (2 couples) and ensured enough privacy. The villa was impeccably maintained, and the warm and unobtrusive hospitality of the staff surpasses anything I have experienced in Europe. Our driver (included in the rent) was a great companion on the sightseeing trips that we took around the island and also a hoard of knowledge on the local life.
My special compliments go to the owner, who was very flexible with the terms of payment and provided much-appreciated expert advise on local dining and sightseeing.
I would highly recommend this property to everyone who is looking for a taste of Balinese life without compromising on quality and service (on the other hand, I would love to keep it secret, so that I could have it all for myself), and I am looking forward to returning to Bali as soon as possible.

I have been to many beautiful spots around the world like the Greek Islands and the Caribbean but Bali is the best of the lot. Having been there many times it is great to stay in an area where you can experience the REAL Bali - but in extreme comfort....to me the best of both worlds. I was so impressed with Villa Delapan last year that I went back again and have only just returned from a week at Villa Empat. Beautiful!!! The villa is in what I regard as the nicest village on the whole island - it is really peaceful and away from the mainstream tourist markets. There are some great restaurants only 5 minutes away by car, not far away is a Greg Norman designed golf course and it is only 20 minutes into the upmarket area of Seminyak - full of fabulous restaurants and fantastic shopping.........and all this at a FRACTION of what it would cost in the UK or Europe. The villas themselves are new, are beautifully decorated and have everything you could ever want. The design and the decor are very suited to the local environment. The staff are - in typical Balinese fashion - calm and gentle and look after your every need.........and where else in the world can you ring up for a massage, have someone arrive 15 mins later and give you a massage for only 6 pounds? One other thing I liked was having a car and driver...it was so easy to go into town or go sightseeing around the island. Fantastic!
