Villa 1880 - Detailed touch

About Villa 1880

From heritage ironwood to Hermes upholstery, Villa 1880 delivers a mega-dose of style in micro detail. Skilfully crafted from a 19th century colonial plantation house sitting between two unapologetically modern pavilions, the villa has a flawless design pedigree shaped by the vision of the owners – an interior architect and vintage store owner who share uncompromisingly high standards and an obsessive attention to detail.

Throughout the villa, traditional materials sit comfortably with contemporary design elements in light-filled, uncluttered rooms where every piece of achingly chic furniture has a story to tell. Chat in style on the Miniform Colony armchairs in the formal living area, or perched on vintage Italian barstools in front of a Filippo Sciascia painting on terracotta. Dip into some Asian literature in the flamboyantly decorated media room under the sleepless eye of a stuffed peacock. And you’re unlikely to be stuck for conversation seated at the four-metre long dining table on Emu Re Touve chairs under a galaxy of pendant lights repurposed from old mercury pots rescued from a Chinese shipwreck!

Villa 1880 is designed with families very much in mind. It’s easy to keep an eye on little ones frolicking in the 19-metre saltwater pool’s shaded shallow area from the retro sofa or swaying hammock. And why not slip into the spa while they play table tennis close by? At day’s end, after sunset cocktails and a sumptuous seafood barbecue prepared by the uber-talented chef on the roof terrace, parents can retreat to the privacy of their air-conditioned suites, while kids enjoy a perpetual slumber party in their own eight-bunk bedroom.

With the wonderfully attentive staff on hand to anticipate your every whim, you may not want to leave the villa. But if you can tear yourself away, the broad expanse of Batu Belig Beach beckons 500 metres away. Or pile into the vintage 1970s restored VW combi and head to Seminyak or Canggu, or explore Bali’s myriad attractions further afield.

    Beautiful villa, loved the eclectic design and layout. Great space for a party 10 plus. Best of all the staff. Gede, Widya, Putu and all the team are so welcoming. Nothing is a problem. Thank you Villa 1880 for a wonderful holiday.

    Villa 1880 is absolute paradise, better than we could could have hoped for. The villa staff were so friendly and we all love them. We are going to miss the villa so much and hope one day we might be back. We absolutely loved Villa 1880 and did not want to leave! The beautiful gardens, gorgeous decor and generous space were just perfect. The friendly and attentive staff were our favorite part. The kids loved the pool and the bunk beds and the extra touches like kids books and movies made life so easy. The villa was wonderful. Usually the reality is not as good as the photos but in this time reality was better! The staff were wonderful and greatly added to the enjoyment of our stay.

    Thank you for wonderful stay in your Villa! It was perfect for our group, and very comfortable. We are lucky to have called it home for last ten days. The staff were exception, especially Widya and Putu. Nanik was lovely, and the chef was a fantastic cook. All our meals were excellent and the kids were very happy with the pancakes and fruit, and they loved the pasta and burgers. The adult dinners were delicious and varied. The staff learn your names (and coffee preferences) early and truly made us feel at home. The villa itself is gorgeous, we loved the unique design of old building. The kids bedroom, lounge room and table tennis areas were fantastic and well used. Comfortable beds. We loved Villa 1880 and would definitely recommend it. Thank you all so very, very much!
