THE VILLAS BALI HOTEL & SPA 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 centred 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 Bali Hotel and Spa was born.
