The Sitara Villa Group rice paddy villas, Villa Shanti, Villa Sitara, Villa Taman Rahasia and Villa Ningaloo are part of a unique Seminyak villa development
The villas combine the wonderful open sense of tropical living with functional & comfortable contemporary/city elements. The villas have been thoughtfully designed to nestle comfortably into their Seminyak, rice paddy frontage…
… the most archetypal Balinese landscape …
Set in Banjar Taman (Banjar – village; Taman – garden) in Seminyak, the villas are thus surrounded by strategically placed & nurtured tropical plantings, & operational rice paddies. To date, no existing tropical fruit trees or rice paddies have been disturbed to accommodate our elegantly designed one-bedroom villas
Villa Umah Maya is located on one of the most exclusive streets in Seminyak, Jl. Laksmana which is famous for it’s shopping and dining offerings. Down a long private lane, it offers the perfect escape from a hard day of shopping or sunbathing in amongst one of the most sort after locales.
The next town north of Legian, Seminyak is more upmarket with mostly luxury accommodation & fashionable high-end restaurants & bars. The atmosphere is much more sophisticated & laid-back than Kuta, &the beach in particular is quieter during the day. Seminyak is also the high end spa & boutique shopping capital of Bali. Nowhere is the upscaling of Bali in recent years more obvious than here.
The villas are in an ideal location – on the fringe of Seminyak, with the most popular restaurants & boutiques a brief stroll away. Yet they are down a winding gang (laneway) providing a welcome oasis from the, at times, frantic bustle of the main streets of Seminyak.
Seminyak Beach & Batu Belig Beach, are a few minutes by taxi, the local markets are a few minutes walking, &
the main street the gang runs off is one of the most popular areas for interior & traditional art shops.
The streets of Seminyak are increasingly jammed, so your best options here are to walk or rent a motorcycle/bicycle
A number of roads in Seminyak have alternative names. Whilst this issue is not exclusive to Seminyak, it does seem to happen here more than anywhere else in Bali. There follows a list of road names with the most popular given first & the alternatives afterwards in brackets
- Jalan Arjuna (Jalan Double Six, Jalan 66)
- Jalan Raya Seminyak (Jalan Raya Basangkasa)
- Jalan Dhyana Pura (Jalan Caplak Tanduk)
- Jalan Laksmana (Jalan Oberoi, Jalan Kayu Aya)
- alan Pantai Legian (Jalan Blue Ocean)
- Jalan Mertanadi (Jalan Penjara)
Seminyak Beach, Petitenget Beach & Pura Petitenget
A continuous expanse of grey sand stretching in both directions. To the south it becomes Legian & then Kuta Beach, but is noticeably quieter than both. The sunsets here are famous, with opportunities to mix with the glitterati who frequent the high end beachfront establishments such as Ku De Ta. Easy access points are at the end of Jalan Dhyana Pura, & from the large public car park (Rp 2,000) between Petitenget Temple & La Lucciola restaurant
Pura Petitenget at the beachside off Jl Petitenget is a compact, pretty Balinese temple, which is known for particularly spectacular beach-side ceremonies. There has been a temple here since at least the 16th century, & although this is not one of the key nine directional temples of Bali, it is an important link in the series of west coast temples between Pura Uluwatu & Pura Tanah Lot

The villas are a peaceful haven and promoted as being a place to relax, unwind, and yet still feel at home. For this reason we specify in the promotional material the number of guests permitted to stay in the villa. We would appreciate it if you continue to take this into consideration if entertaining friends for lunch, drinks or dinner. We prefer (for the sake of our guests in neighbouring villas) that large parties be avoided and that loud music after 10pm be attended to
