History

The Villas began as the vision of the Australian artist Jim Elliott. Jim built the first villa for himself incorporating traditional Balinese architecture with all the modern western conveniences to suit his own creative needs.

Soon friends impressed with the simple elegance and lasting comfort convinced Jim 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 villas, all featuring the latest audio visual equipment and centered around a deep water swimming pool.

Since many of the villas were built as vacation homes it made perfect sense to start renting them. In the beginning the villas where available exclusively to friends, however word spread and suddenly everybody wanted to rent a villa. From this grew the demand for a unique style of hotel rental management and so The Villas Bali Hotel & Spa was born.
