With a refreshing open plan design and décor that exudes bohemian-style and Indian influences, the villa is complemented by a lap pool set in lush shaded gardens and a tree-fringed lawn which further accentuates the villa's peaceful and calm ambience.
Surfers and beachgoers will also appreciate facilities like an outside beach shower and surfboard racks, or the private day bed tucked away into the cliff face for those who enjoy solitude or just plain gazing out to sea.

‘Villa Soma was FANTASTIC!!! I will stay there every time!!! The place is unique, quiet, beautiful with a real old time, throw back Bali feel. Soma was exceptional as a hostess, the staff were superb and the price point was perfect. Great access to the beach below, and the new pool is divine, not to mention participating in the blessing ceremony!!!’

‘Just want to drop you a note to say we had a sensational time in Bali. Villa Soma was wonderful, very very peaceful, we were extremely well looked after by Made and Soma is a lovely person. We were lucky enough to time it for a couple of cranking swells and it pumped every day in the 4 - 6 foot plus range with the whole of the Bukit lighting up. Mainly surfed Impossibles and Ulus. Thanks for organising a great trip for us.’
