Villa of the Week: Romantic escape Villa Songket, Bali

The basics

Villa Songket is a double-storey 3-bedroom property with distinct Balinese character – the timber ceiling is exposed, some of the wooden doors are carved with traditional patterns, and many of the textiles used in the villa are made from songket fabric, which gives the villa its name.

Who it’s for

The villa sleeps up to 6 people, but can be booked as a 1- or 2-bedroom as well, so while it’s a good spot for families, couples will find that it makes a romantic getaway.

The best bits

The pool, the bedrooms, the tranquility of the garden – there’s plenty to love about Villa Songket. Every bedroom has an ensuite bathroom, but what will strike your fancy is the bathtub in the master bedroom and the open-air showers in the other two bedrooms.
