Villa Joss is nestled in the heart of the Batubelig area in greater Seminyak, on Bali’s south-western coast just 100 metres from the beach, 30 minutes from the international airport (depending on traffic) and 10 minutes’ drive from the trendy Seminyak area, with its glamorous lifestyle. It is only 10 minutes from the west end of the Sunset Road, a speedy bypass route from the airport.
Since Villa Joss opened in 2010, the Batu Belig area has undergone some major development in the way of new small boutique hotels and private villas. As a result, Batu Belig has flourished as an independant shopping and dining haven, with an abundance of small fashion boutiques, homeware stores, money changers and jewelry shops dotted along the road from the beach all the way to Petitenget. An ATM is conveniently located within 2 minutes walk, as is a 24hr convenience store. There are plenty of simple warungs (eateries) within easy walking distance of Villa Joss and it is just down the street from the famous Métis fine dining restaurant, as well as newcomers Pavilion Bar and Grill and Slippery Stone Bar and Restaurant. The equally famous but more casual Naughty Nuri’s, Seminyak barbeque rib house is also close by. The newly opened and ultra-trendy Mozaic Beach Club is a mere 5 minute walk along the beach from Villa Joss.
Batubelig Beach is quiet and peaceful, while Seminyak Beach is much busier and a fun place for people watching. All along this coastline the waves are huge and the domain of the surfers. The expansive beach is a place where the local and expatriate communities gather every evening to enjoy Bali’s legendary sunsets and where guests may chance upon Balinese Hindu ceremonies involving offerings cast into the sea.
Seminyak and the neighbouring area of Petitenget boast a plethora of chic cocktail bars, exciting nightclubs, sumptuous spas, fashionable boutiques and famous restaurants including Ku De Ta, Nutmegs at Hu’u, La Lucciola, Sarong and Sardine.
Villa Joss is conveniently located close to all of the main shopping malls, Waterbom Park, and many other tourist attractions. The location offers easy access up to the mountains and rice terraces on Bali’s western slopes. It is just over one hour’s drive from the famous cultural and artistic town of Ubud, and just 10 minutes’ drive from the west end of the Sunset Road, gateway to the island.
The nearby ‘Nirwana Bali Golf Course’ was designed by Greg Norman, and voted the number one golf course in Asia. It is also situated near the dramatic, waved-lashed sea temple of Tanah Lot.For horse lovers, the ‘Umalas Equestrian Centre’ is just a few kilometres away.
