It may seem hard to believe but not everyone comes to Bali for the sun-filled days, culture, adventure, wining and dining, shopping or endless spa treatments. Located in the middle of vibrant Seminyak, The Layar’s designer villas were created to meet the needs of a host of travellers, each with their own personal agendas. With unique pitched roofs, landscaped gardens, and a host of Italian-inspired features, these villas are equipped with everything the urban traveller could wish for. Photography by David Burden.
The Solo Traveller.
You know the feeling: life has just got you all wound up and you need a break. All you yearn for are long, quiet days doing exactly what you want. A place where you can close the door on the noise, turn off the phone and do the things that make you happy.
The one-bedroom villas at The Layar are the perfect choice for solo travellers. Everything necessary is at the end of the phone. Hungry? Food arrives at your door mere moments from having the thought. If you fancy a quiet corner to enjoy some me-time, this is the perfect choice and of course you have a huge selection of distractions within walking distance.
With a private pool set in the landscaped garden, a comfortable lounge to curl up on with a book and an elegant bedroom complete with a designer bathroom, this is all you need to restore peace within.
The Business Traveller.
As much as we like to think of Bali as a free for all holiday destination, some of us need to work and you may be surprised by the amount of people who come to Bali for business. Unless you are one of us.
With super-efficient wifi, parking on the premises, coffee, tea and meals on call and space to meet, greet and plan, the Layar, strategically located in central Seminyak, makes perfect sense.
And when work is over, call up cocktails and chill out before heading out on the town. Strike the perfect work/play balance, The Layar is made for you.
Got romance on your mind? The Layar delivers with hearts and flowers. Romantic dinners don’t get much better than the stylish Settimo Cielo at the front of the resort. Flower-laden baths are a must for romance while couples massages are the perfect way to spend time together.
Where the pampering ends, your own villa is a private sanctuary with a private pool, a romantic terrace, a luxe living room and an elegant master suite where the lights are low and the entertainment system plays your tune.
The Celebration Traveller.
Got a crew and you’re ready to celebrate? Seminyak is the place to be and The Layar is at the heart of the action. The three bedroom villas are spacious and made for hanging out.
Order up some floating swans and fill the fridge with party supplies for fun-filled days around the pool. At night Seminyak serves up restaurants and nightlife that are guaranteed to keep the party going. Location, location, location, the Layar is the ultimate place to play.
The Family Traveller.
Need a great holiday with the family, the Layar has the perfect plan. Two and three-bedroom villas have loads of space, in-villa kitchens, room service and lavish breakfasts, catered lunches and fabulous Italian-style dinners at Settimo Cielo, the resort’s very own restaurant.
There is space for everyone to play, private guest rooms with ensuite bathrooms means everyone has a private getaway while the spacious open living and dining areas and beautiful, blue pools surrounded by decks and tropical gardens means staying home is a holiday. Venture out and you have Seminyak on your doorstop with fun for everyone. Stay, play, eat, shop, spa and hit the beaches for surf and sunset. Holidays don’t get much better than this.
If your idea of a holiday is doing it your way, The Layar offers the ease of a resort with the luxury of privacy in your own villa. At The Layar they believe everyone should do it their way. Book direct through their website for the best rates.
