he Villas began as the vision of artist Jim Elliott. He built the first villa for himself, incorporating traditional Balinese architecture with modern, western conveniences to suit his own creative needs. Soon friends, impressed with the simple elegance and lasting comfort, pressed him to build villas for them, following his original formula. A private villa that is a world within a world. Four walls containing lush gardens, individual thatched roofed bungalows, all featuring the latest audio visual equipment and centered around a deep water swimming pool - Every ingredient for a perfect life.
Then a very interesting thing happened; since many of the villas were built as vacation homes, it made perfect sense to start renting them out. In the beginning it was exclusively to other friends. Word spread. Suddenly, everybody wanted to rent our villas. From that grew the demand for a unique style of hotel management. As a business, The Villas was born.
We are the original Villa / Hotel concept in Bali and today The Villas is made up of 50, one, two and three bedroom free standing holiday houses complete with full hotel services.
Today The Villas also encompasses Prana Spa, The Private Suite, Chill Reflexology, Prana Yoga, Prana Restaurant and Prana Gift Shop.
