Your Villa

Pondok Bidadari

Private Sidemen Bali Villa Accommodation

Pondok Bidadari is a secluded villa amongst ancient working rice terraces in the still largely traditional Sidemen valley.

Created by highly acclaimed designer Made Wijaya, the villa blends modern elements with traditional Balinese style. Extensive use of timber and a traditional Alang Alang (thatch) roof evokes a feeling of invitation and warmth.

Bidadari is a genuine standalone villa surrounded by working rice terraces and traditionally harvested coconut trees, is overlooked by soaring mountains and has a vista that follows the valley all the way to the Sanur coast.


The main bedroom on the upper level is reached by the timber spiral staircase and offers a king size bed, mosquito net, overhead fan and separate toilet with basin.  This large bedroom provides wonderful views of the mountain on the opposite side of the valley.  The second, smaller bedroom on the ground floor is also fan cooled with a king sized bed and mosquito net. This bedroom leads directly to the outdoor bathroom.

Kitchen / Indoor Living

Your staff are always available and eager to cook for you and we have a menu featuring genuine Balinese cuisine for you to choose from.  If you want to prepare your own meals however, Bidadari offers a well equipped private internal kitchen with modern cooking facilities, microwave, fridge and tea and coffee making facilities.  The indoor living space is equipped with a movie library and CD player/stereo that you can plug your iPod or mp3 player into so make sure you bring your favourite music with you; however, once you see the veranda the idea of indoor living seems to take a backseat.

Outdoor Living and Swimming Pool

The expansive and shaded wooden veranda running along the entire frontage of the house has you standing amongst the tree tops, which tree is the singing coconut harvester in? What are the farmers harvesting in the myriad of fields? How will that water buffalo turn when he gets to the end of the terrace?  The experience is magical and at night you can see the twinkle of the lights of Sanur, the twinkle of fireflies or the twinkle of just experiencing a perfect moment.

Following the steps down to the lower level you will find your private swimming pool and sundeck overlooking the lush tree tops.  Let yourself be tempted to relax with a cold drink and a good book on the deck or slip into the cool water of the infinity edge pool. Let your mind and body drift and let yourself become part of the Sidemen Valley.
