Villa of the Week: Pantai Lima Estate

The basics

An estate featuring five luxury beachfront villas in a quiet area of Canggu, the Pantai Lima Estate is the ultimate seaside Bali retreat for group holidays, weddings and events. The estate extends over 1.6 hectares (4 acres), and four of the villas are directly on the water’s edge.

Although each villa was designed separately, they are connected by their traditional alang-alang roofs, tropical greenery, and stunning rice paddy and ocean views. Collectively, the five Pantai Lima villas have 27 bedrooms and bathrooms, with room for 54 people!

Who it’s for

Villa Mary

Whether you want just one villa for your getaway or all five for your event or gathering, the Pantai Lima villas are ideal for those who want to disappear into a tranquil and private world.


In a quiet area, surrounded by rice fields, a Balinese temple and Pererenan beach (great for surfing), the Pantai Lima Estate is a 15-minute drive from trendy Canggu’s main stretch. It’s also just 16-kilometres from Ngurah Rai International Airport and 12.3-kilometres to Seminyak – the home of Bali’s most sophisticated nightlife, shopping and restaurants.

This may sound like it is a long way away from things, but you won’t have difficulty getting around. The villas come with the use of a private car and driver for up to eight hours each day; you only have to pay for the price of petrol.

Weddings & Events

Wedding at Villa Melissa

The estate can host events of up to 80 guests, with 54 staying on site to keep most everyone together. Perfect for those pre- and post-event gatherings! As the villas are individually designed, yet in keeping with a Balinese theme and with western creature comforts, each guest will find a space suited for their tastes.

The rest of the best

Villa Sound of the Sea

As the estate is surrounded by ocean, rice paddies and greenery, there really is no one to disturb you and your group. It’s the ultimate in the quiet life (if that’s what you want it to be).

Each villa has access to the shared facilities at Pantai Lima Estate. These include a tennis court with night lighting, a gym with a variety of fitness equipment, and a 250 square metre seminar room. Additionally, the Pantai Lima Estate is fully staffed with villa managers, housekeepers, chefs, gardeners, security and drivers. Everything you could need under one (or five) roof!
