Anapuri Villas, a luxury boutique beachfront villa complex located on one of the exotic south-east coastlines of Bali, this resort within a resort on black sandy Pabean Beach is another hidden gem tucked away from the bustling major tourist destinations yet offers absolute privacy of isolation, mylifestylenews writes……


A 35 minutes drive away from the Ngurah Rai international airport, we arrived to this uncompromising and exclusive beachfront resort offers a vast Indian Ocean views encompassing Nusa Penida Island and Mount Agung. Anapuri Villas, an exclusive resort even unknown by many locals is a resort within a resort that is an alluring diversion from modern life, with an ultimate beachfront location.



Right next to a local small Balinese village, the concept of the resort gives you the experience of life in private, unspoiled yet unknown Bali, while enjoying every comfort and luxury it is possible to provide. The resort is designed to encourage you to just be staying and in fact living in the resort by witnessing the breathtaking scenery and the life of the villagers at the beach, in their fishing boats, or in the rice padi fields.

The two-level villa allows you to sequester yourself away from the service staff should you want to relax in absolute privacy. They are always very discreet and are out of sight outside of scheduled meal periods and other needs, but always at your fingertips when you need them.



A secret Eden Garden of your own within your own villa 


There are also those extra touches that set Anapuri Villas apart from so many other luxury resorts’ offerings in Bali. The suggested menu offerings and wine lists are very extensive and surprisingly extremely affordable in such hospitality style. An eclectic mix of Asian and Western cuisine is served in the villas, having your own personal butler and chef makes the catering arrangements extra special, you really don’t feel the need to leave the environs of your villa (except perhaps for a lazy walk along the soft black sand beach).


Specializing in elite service, we tried quite an array of different dishes over breakfast, lunch and dinner. The chef’s skills and the food presentation had never failed us, Soto Ayam, BBQ Pork Ribs, Beef Rendang and The Grilled Garlic Prawns were memorable and absolute authentic flavored food.



There are other Western and Mediterranean choice yet the Asian menu is always on the top of our list while in the South East Asia region. Ingredients are obtained from the local supplies to ensure the freshest on request together with the resort on-site organic gardens for sustainable local development. The culinary skill of the chef is equal to some of the highly recommended restaurants in Bali. Each meal are carefully made-to-order to suits your palette and there is always something there to enjoy for such a treat.


To ensure there is some extra pampering, the resort also houses the Anapuri Spa. This luxury massage and beauty spa is a sanctuary of tranquility. It offers every indulgence and rejuvenation spa lovers have come to expect and more.  


There are eclectic range of pampering, reviving and relaxing therapies and a signature product range (all natural ingredients of course) that is designed to enhance your sensory experience inspired by Balinese healers and age-old traditional beauty rituals through its signature brands and therapeutic techniques, be it during a therapeutic Balinese massage or a hair hydrating crème bath.



 Additionally, as the resort caters to very private and exclusive weddings, the spa has a fully equipped salon to meet every bridal party need. The Anapuri Beauty Salon offers a luxurious twist on personal beauty services from scalp massages to nail care services pampering treatments. We chose to experience a signature massage and this provided a welcome respite from our daily villa indulgence.
