Situated just 300 metres from Seminyak’s beach, shops, restaurants and nightlife, the fully staffed Eshara Villas (formally known as C2 Residence) present sleek designer-chic and pared-back luxe. This versatile property can be rented as three independent and totally private two- and three-bedroom villas, or simply push back the walls to create 5 and 8 bedroom combinations sleeping up to 16. Each villa has its own swimming pool (with pool fence available), a glamorous living and dining space and an integrated kitchen, while all bedrooms feature ensuite bathrooms, king-size beds, dressing areas and TV/DVD players. The three villas are set in private, walled tropical gardens complete with frangipani trees, coconut palms, flowering plants, sun loungers and pool decks.
ABOUT VILLA ESHARA
Welcome to Eshara, our urban-slick, ‘three-in-one’ villa offering eight, five, three and two bedroom options that make it perfect for everyone from romancing couples and small families all the way up to large groups of friends.
Situated off a quiet street, yet only 300 metres from Seminyak’s bustling beach, shops and restaurants, Eshara villas I, II and III each have their own private gardens and swimming pools – separated by a clever system of retracting garden walls – as well as individual indoor and outdoor living spaces and equipped, open-plan kitchens. When the whole villa is opened up as one, it can easily cater for up to 16 guests.
Eshara’s seductive interiors are designed to delight: think funky furnishings, brightly coloured artwork, fascinating artefacts and lush fabrics; a place where stone-carved Balinese goddesses invite you to be seated on cowhide chairs under opulent Swarovski crystal chandeliers. And this tropical living concept spills outside onto palm-tree-dotted lawns where you can lounge on pool decks or enjoy romantic dinners lit by flickering fire bowls.
Our team of highly competent and professional staff will make your holiday wishes come true. The villa manager and personal butlers are on hand to ensure you want for nothing and, if you’d rather not self-cater, our chef will prepare your meals from a large suggestion menu of Asian and Western favourites or according to your special requests.
With a staggering array of hedonistic pleasures virtually on the doorstep, Villa Eshara’s location is a wonderland for bon-vivants. From designer boutiques and day spas to beach bars, world-class restaurants, pulsating nightspots and the expansive Petitenget Beach, fun and fine-dining are never much more than a few moments away.

Villa Eshara offers an extensive suggestion menu of delicious home-style meals featuring Asian and international dishes to cater to all tastes, with an excellent selection of vegetarian and children’s options. The villa’s professionally trained chef is also more than happy to tailor meals to accommodate any special dietary requirements. A stay is not complete without sampling some local dishes such as pepes ikan (fish steamed in banana leaf), satay ayam (chicken satay on bamboo skewers) or pisang goreng (fried banana) served with ice cream.
Groceries and beverages are billed at cost price plus a 20%++ service charge, and guests will be requested to provide grocery money in advance, leaving the staff to do the shopping and present receipts for reference. To make the most of the kitchen and give staff time to shop, it is a good idea to plan meals the evening before or with a minimum of five hours notice.
FAMILIES AT VILLA ESHARA
The family friendly advantages of a villa holiday are many, including access to your own private facilities and the freedom to use them whenever you want. Knowing that the kids can run around happily, independently and safely, without you having to worry about other guests, is a real plus – and one that means parents are certain to have a more relaxed holiday too.
Villa Eshara is a great villa for families and each of the three villas has a twin-bedded room ideal for kids. Those with toddlers will need to be vigilant around the swimming pools, although a pool fence can be installed at Eshara II and III upon request (extra cost applies).
The team of friendly staff at Villa Eshara will make children feel as welcome as adults, and having these willing helpers on hand gives guests plenty of flexibility and freedom to do their own exploring beyond the villa grounds (full-time babysitting incurs a small extra cost).
Although the equipped kitchens allow you to prepare meals for fussy eaters or babies with ease, staff will happily to do this for you – just talk through your requirements and meal schedules with the villa manager or chef and they will take care of the rest. Pancakes by the pool for breakfast? Toasties for tea? No problem. The chef can customise all meals to suit children’s taste buds.
Don’t worry about packing all that cumbersome kids’ equipment for your stay. Just let us know what you need, and anything we don’t have in-house (villa facilities include a baby cot and highchair) we can hire on your behalf (click here to see list of available hire items).
And when the excitement of exploring the villa starts to wear off, check out our Things to do page – there’s plenty in the area to keep all the family amused throughout the holiday.
Feel like a body scrub or massage? Just ask our staff to bring the spa to you! We can recommend deluxe treatments carried out by fully trained therapists from a reputable local spa (extra charges will apply). Here’s a sample of what’s on the menu:
Release built up tension with a traditional Balinese massage. Using a combination of gentle stretches, acupressure and aromatherapy oils to stimulate the flow of blood, oxygen and energy around your body, you will feel totally relaxed in no time.
Foot reflexology is a natural healing art based on the principle that there are reflexes in the feet which correspond to every part of the body. Through application of pressure on these reflexes tension is relieved and circulation improved leaving you feeling balanced.
A full body scrub will exfoliate and hydrate your skin leaving it soft and smooth. A rejuvenating scrub combines an abrasive material such as salt, coffee, rice bran or pecan hulls with essential oils to remove any impurities and make your skin glow.
Our hands and feet work hard for us every day but rarely get the attention they deserve. Treat them to a manicure or pedicure, which usually comes with the added bonus of a quick hand or foot massage.
