There is a flat screen television with satellite channels to enjoy, with over 50 international programs and a DVD player with a surround sound system. The living and dining areas overlook the swimming pool, gazebo and the spectacular Indian Ocean. The surrounding garden is lit up at night, providing a perfect venue for a BBQ under the stars.
After just one night at Villa Bayu, you’ll never want to stay in a hotel again. Perched on a quiet hilltop, this holiday home offers sweeping views of the surrounding lush tropical countryside. The 6-bedroom villa offers all the luxuries you expect, like a private pool and 2,400 square metres of space, along with some you may not expect, like an automobile with an English-speaking driver. Villa Bayu can also be booked as a 4-bedroom or 2 bedroom property.
This holiday home is designed for large families, because it has something for everyone. Younger children can enjoy a full array of pool toys as they splash around, and then watch kid-friendly DVD movies on one of the many entertainment systems. Older children can grab a snack from the fully-apportioned kitchen and munch as they laze around the Balinese-style party gazeebo, and adults can enjoy one another’s company in the huge open living room.

Guests can order take-out from a local restaurant, prepare meals in the kitchen, or take advantage of the outdoor barbecue grill.

FAMILIES AT VILLA BAYU
One of the the most unique features of Villa Bayu is how much scope there is for children of all ages to have fun and how well equipped we are for children, babies and toddlers, which means that their parents can also have a rare opportunity to relax and have a holiday.
From the large lawns, just perfect for ball games and running off that extra energy, to the pools, both of which have steps for non-swimmers to play on and one has a baby pool, to the pool toys, board games and DVDs – there is so much for children to do. On top of which, baby care items such as high chairs and travel cots are provided without additional cost and meals are of course prepared by our villa cook who is happy to accommodate the unusual eating habits of small people!
BABY CARE ITEMS - Villa Bayu has a large collection of baby care items including travel cot, high chair, bottle sterilizer, car chair (up to 12kgs) and plastic plates and cutlery. Please ask the staff if you need to use any of these items free of charge.
SWIMMING - Both pools at the villa have a step for non-swimmers to play on and Villa Bayu II has a baby pool which is ideal for little people to potter around in. Pool toys are provided, some of which are inflatables. We find that the pools, which are part of the living areas, are well located for easy vigilance while your children are swimming, but pool fences can be installed if you are more comfortable with this option, at a small additional cost.
SLEEPING - We have a travel cot available, as well as an additional single bed which can be placed into any of the bedrooms in the villa. Villa Bayu II has a bunk bed room adjoining the master bedroom which sleeps three children (there is a bunk bed with a trundle bed that can be pulled out underneath) and has its own access to one of our many gardens, so the children can spill into it to play. As the villa is large and the bedrooms can be a little way from the living areas, we suggest you bring a baby alarm with you for when young children are sleeping.
KEEPING THEM BUSY - The villas have a selection of pool toys, board games and DVDs and Villa Bayu II has an Apple TV with Netflix account for streaming children’s TV programmes. Please see our things to do list (see link below) for activities for children outside the villa.
BABYSITTING - The villa staff are always happy to play with the children and toddlers, but if you would like babysitting services then this can be arranged at additional cost. Please ask the villa manager for help with this.
