Postcards From: Villa Windu Asri, Bali


Villa Windu Asri Bali | Gazebo | Travelshopa

Hello from the tropical paradise island of Bali! It’s little wonder Bali is such a popular travel destination. Baptised by beautiful landscapes and blessed with a spiritual heart, Bali has so much for its people to revel in. A dreamlike getaway starts with a great resort or villa and for that, we’re glad we picked the brand new, Villa Windu Asri Bali.

Villa Windu Asri rests within a private enclosed garden, sheltered from the maddening sprawl of tourist activity in Seminyak. The grandeur of the colonial era, combined with the artistry of Balinese hospitality, creates an exceptional ambience for relaxation and repose after a long day of tireless exploration. It is here that a major pampering takes place – where white-washed columns, shaded verandahs and ornate fretwork harkens back to a more elegant age. The villa is a leisurely stroll away from the beach and (conveniently) only a few minutes’ walk from the Petitenget shopping enclave which is home to some of Bali’s best fashion and homewares stores.

Take a tour of our home for a total of 7 blissful days to get a glimpse of the beautiful interiors and A class Balinese service.
