There's nothing quite like The Layar – an iconic 23-villa estate set in a coveted residential area in the heart of uber-chic Seminyak, moments from Bali's best restaurants, boutiques and sunset beach bars. Each designer villa offers generous living space that flows freely onto the pool deck and is defined by tapering, sail-like roofs. The villas offer from one to four bedrooms, all with glamorous bathrooms and views onto wide gardens. Guests have the choice of ordering room service, booking a chef for a barbecue alongside their private swimming pool, or self-catering in their own equipped kitchen. Every villa at The Layar is set in a private and immaculately kept tropical garden bursting with colour and the sweet sound of native birdlife. Beyond the garden a private lane leads up to a road from which it's only a five-to-ten-minute walk to either the fascinating arts and crafts shops lining Jalan Raya Kerobokan or the huge selection of restaurants and bars along Jalan Kayu Aya (also known as Eat Street). Another five minutes' walk will bring you to the beach, where you can choose which of the many hip bars to stop at and watch another fine Bali sun set.
