ALU Bali’s Lewis Norman is in­volved with the man­age­ment of the re­cently opened Se­sari Bali, a clus­ter of 16 se­ri­ously smart vil­las, also in Seminyak.

The one and two-bed­room res­i­dences, set off a cen­tral walk­way, have more of a ho­tel feel than Alu Bali, with mar­ble floors and en suites, four-poster beds, cable television and con­tem­po­rary kitch­enettes (free broad­band is avail­able in the lobby). Each villa fea­tures a private walled court­yard with small swim­ming pool.

Dec­o­rated with con­tem­po­rary Chi­nese flour­ishes and pri­mar­ily de­signed to ap­peal to the Asian mar­ket, Se­sari is nev­er­the­less per­fect for Aus­tralian vis­i­tors and great value, with rates from $US75 ($90) a per­son a night, twin-share and com­bin­ing all the ben­e­fits of a ser­viced apart­ment with the pri­vacy of a villa. Break­fast is pre­pared in your kitch­enette, and mas­sage and beauty treat­ments are avail­able on re­quest. Chris­tine McCabe
