Straddling the equator, Indonesia tends to have a fairly even climate year-round. Rather than four seasons, Indonesia has two – dry (between May to September) and wet (between October to April) – and there are no extremes of temperature between winter and summer. In most parts of Indonesia, the wet season falls between October and April and the dry season between May and September. December and January see Bali at its most humid and rain tends to come in sudden tropical downpours, but it can also rain for more prolonged periods.

Villa Artis Suite is located in Umalas, just outside the centre of Seminyak. Known for its lush paddy fields, this private three bedroom villa offers views over the working paddies. A great option for groups of friend or families with teens.
Villa Artis Suite is set down a quiet lane in the neighbourhood of Umalas. Still fairly undiscovered, Umalas offers the best of both worlds with more high end shops, restaurants and luxury villas opening up in the last few years. Although not on the beach, this area boasts a beautiful rural setting still close to the hustle and bustle of Seminyak.
Owned by a French family who occupy the main house, the villas sit behind overlooking the working paddy fields. The villa is made up of three stand alone bungalows done up in an Indonesian style. All come with air conditioning and ceiling fans as well as large semi-open air bathrooms.
Centred around the pool, there are plenty of sun loungers and a large outdoor dining area at Villa Artis Suite where guests can feast upon the chef's delicious fresh cooking. Enjoy sashimi style fish and light salads for lunch and later some traditional Indonesian delicacies.
The villa also has a small Joglo house which is an ideal play area for children, a living room and seating on each bungalow for unwinding with a book. Everyone will love the pool and lawn area, but during the day it is possible to arrange cultural trips to visit Bali's most famous sights or grab and taxi and head into Seminyak for some beach time.
There are three stand alone bungalows at Villa Artis Suite, each with double beds and featuring semi-open air bathrooms. The bungalows all have a terrace complete with a set of table and chairs as well as a sofa to unwind on.
Children are welcome at Villa Artis Suite and the friendly staff will make sure they are looked after. Inflatables can be arranged for little ones wanting to splash about in the pool and you can liaise with the chef about tailoring the menu to suit younger guests.
All food is fresh from the owner's home grown crops, sourced from the local fish markets and served with delicious spicy sambols and other flavoursome delights. In the evenings liaise with the chef for what you'd like to eat, or dine out at one of the area's fantastic local restaurants.
Laze by the pool, explore the local area or head to the beach in Seminyak. Seminyak is home to a wide variety of cool hangouts from coffee shops, breakfast stops, beach clubs and fine dining restaurants. Ask your Travel Consultant for suggestions on cultural things to do nearby or further afield in the famous towns of Ubud or Tanah Lot.
