Indonesia villas for rent


Welcome to 5 Star Villa Holidays, the No.1 website for renting 5-star villas in Indonesia with a stunning choice of dream family holiday villa accommodation.

Indonesia is one of the world's great travel adventures. Made up of more than 17,000 islands spread across the equator from tiny coral atolls, to dense jungles, volcanoes and vibrant cities, Indonesia has so much to offer.

Many visitors come to find their very own tropical island paradise with palm-fringed powder white sand beaches and turquoise seas.

Beneath the waves, Indonesia has some of the best diving in the world and the seas are teeming with brightly coloured tropical fish, turtles, rays and sharks in crystal clear waters.

Each region of Indonesia has something different to offer visitors with an incredible diverse culture, people and geography.

For many, Indonesia means Bali, one of the most fabulous holiday destinations on earth - but further afield there are a host of other stunning destinations to enchant visitors from around the globe.

Flights and ferries link all of the major Indonesian islands so hoping from one piece of paradise to the next is surprisingly easy.

With so many places to explore, it can be bewildering to even the most seasoned traveller to decide on the dream destination for your 5-Star luxury villa holiday.

Our experts have carefully selected the best villas in the best locations to ensure wherever you stay, it will be a dream holliday unlike any other.
Looking forward to helping you choose the best luxury villa rental in Indonesia,
All the best,

John Paul Donnelly

Top 3 Places To Enjoy a Villa Holiday in Indonesia

  • 1. Probably the best villa holiday destination in the world, Bali. Top places to stay are Seminyak, Canggu, Ubud and The Bukit Peninsula.
  • 2. The Gili Islands, made up of Gili Meno, Gili Trawangan and Gili Air. This majestic Archipelago is a must visit and you are sure to find 5 Star Villas on the beach.
  • 3. Lombok is fast becoming the coolest place to visit in Indonesia. This surfers paradise has got it all, well worth a visit.

What to see and do in Indonesia

Visit Uluwatu Temple in Bali

A must see for visitors to Bali. Uluwatu Temple is perched on the cliff top 70 metres above the ocean below. Watch out for the monkeys though. They are known to make off with handbags, hats, cameras - almost anything if you give them the chance.

Sunset at Rock Bar in Jimbaran

Rock Bar is famous as one of the best places to watch the sun go down with a drink in hand in all of Bali. There's a smart dress code here so you'll need to up your game from flip flops and vests. Come early as queues can build up at peak times. But the view from this stylish bar above Jimbaran Bay is worth the wait.

An underwater adventure in the Gili Islands

Swimming with turtles, rays, sharks and a host of tropical fish for the ultimate aquatic experience. The east coast of Gili Meno and Gili Air offers some of the best diving in Indonesia. But all three Gilis have fantastic beaches and crystal clear waters for some of the best diving and snorkelling in the region so whichever you choose you'll see the sea is teaming with life.

Surfing in Kuta Lombok

The bays around the wild coastline of Kuta Lombok have miles of untouched beaches and some incredible breakers. Mawi is recommended for experienced surfers and nearby Selong Blanak is a great place for novices to learn in the safe waters.

Best time to visit Indonesia

Stretched across the equator, Indonesia is hot and humid all year round but there are two main seasons. The dry season runs from April to October and the monsoon season from November to March. The monsoon rains can disrupt travel to some islands so plan your trip carefully.
But while the downpours are sudden and heavy, it is rare for the rains to last all day.
Indonesia's peak tourism season is in the middle of the dry season and corresponds with summer in Europe. December and January are also popular months, particularly with visitors from Australia, despite being in the wet season.
With a diverse mix of people, cultures and religions, there are major festivals across the year. Nyepi, which means 'Day of Silence' is Balinese New Year, generally falling in March. On the day itself everything in Bali closes but in the days preceding it, you'll see the people of Bali cleaning statues, scrubbing the streets clean, and a host of other rituals as they get ready for the New Year.
Galungan is one of the most important Hindu festivals and is a celebration of the gods and spirits being welcomed into homes. Evil spirits are driven off with firecrackers and thanks given to the gods through dancing and gifts.

What to eat in Indonesia

Indonesia's food is as diverse as its geography. The tropical waters surrounding the thousands of islands mean an abundance of ultra-fresh seafood. And the warm climate is perfect for growing rice, soya and spices inland. The Javanese style of cooking was influenced by Chinese and Indian traders and European colonists brought new ways of cooking to the East Indies.
Small local restaurants known as warungs can be found almost everywhere. This is where you'll find Indonesian's gathering to eat. The specialties will reflect the local region from whole roasted pig Babi Guling in Bali to Beef Rendang almost everywhere.

Where to stay in Indonesia


Known as the Island of the Gods, Bali is a favourite destination for holidaymakers around the world and it is easy to see why.
From beautiful beaches, great surfing, spectacular scenery, mystical temples, lush rice paddies, fascinating culture and the warm friendly locals - there's so much on offer.
Be cocooned in luxury at exclusive Nusa Dua, stretch out on the incredible beaches of Jimbaran, enjoy the opulence of the Beverly Hills of Bali in the stunning Bukit Peninsula and explore the wild rocky coastline and surf spots.
Bali is also home to a thriving arts and foodie scene which is the envy of anywhere in the world as well as a host of yoga, wellness and spiritual retreats to re-energise even the most weary traveller.
Instagram perfect 5-Star luxury villas with infinity pools and the most attentive service are the norm not the exception. A 5-Star dream holiday destination Bali is hard to beat.


Just south of busy Kuta, but a world away in terms of ambience, Jimbaran is one of the best resorts in Bali.
The turquoise waters of Jimbaran Bay are lined by three miles of golden sands with a tropical forest backdrop.
The calm waters of the bay are perfect for swimming and also great for those wanting to try surfing for the first time in quieter conditions.
The beach is lined with fresh seafood restaurants where the catch of the day is grilled in front of you before you tuck in. The most exclusive area is at the north end and the more casual is found at the southern end of the beach, but whichever direction you choose, the food will be fresh and delicious.
There are several upscale resorts in and around Jimbaran, but the village itself remains a low-key laid back spot. Just beyond the village, there are several other great beaches.
Jimbaran is the perfect location for a relaxing Bali beach holiday with plenty of interesting options for nearby day trips.

Nusa Dua

Nusa Dua means two islands in Indonesian and the resort gets its name from the two headlands, each with a temple on top that looks out over the area.
The purpose built resort area is one of the most exclusive in Bali. It is the perfect location for an upmarket family holiday or a romantic getaway.
You'll appreciate the best that Bali has to offer in 5-Star luxury.
The beaches are generally quieter than most in Bali and there is less traffic and fewer crowds, so if you appreciate the quiet life, this could be the spot for you.
While Nusa Dua is a quiet and laid back location, there is still plenty to do and it is a great base from which to explore the rest of the island. Some of the best spa treatments can be found in and around Nusa Dua.

There are beaches with great snorkelling straight from the beach and lots of water sports on offer as well as exclusive beach clubs to chill out in style.

Bukit Peninsula

Known as the Beverly Hills of Bali, the Bukit Peninsula is famous for its beautiful beaches, surfing, temples and the best golf on the island.
It is also home to some of the most exclusive and upmarket resorts in Bali, from the exclusive Nusa Dua to the stunning stretches of sand at Uluwatu.
The rugged rocky coastline is very different to the lush tropical vegetation of inland areas like Ubud.
Visitors to the Bukits Peninsula come for the beaches, surfing and sports.
There are two international standard golf courses - the Bali National Golf Club at Nusa Dua and the New Kuta Golf Club links course with its views over the Indian Ocean.
Padang Padang and Balangan are some of the most popular and best surf spots on the island and there are plenty of choices for watersports.
The temple at Pura Luhur Uluwatu is rightly one of the most famous in Bali. The spectacular location on cliffs 70 metres above the Indian Ocean is perfect for an Instagram selfie.


Lombok is rapidly catching up to the popularity of nearby Bali.
It is known for its tropical beaches and world class surfing at Kuta and Banko Banko.
You'll also find Indonesia's second highest volcano, the spectacular Mount Rinjani.
It is a strenuous two day trek to the top. But make the climb and you will be rewarded with a view that makes it all worthwhile of Lake Segara Anak at the top.
There are also dozens of spectacular waterfalls scattered across Lombok. One of the best is the famous Tiu Kelep Waterfall deep in the jungle.
Just off the coast of Lombok are the magical Gili Islands which are totally car free. Each has its own distinct character and can easily be visited on a day trip from Lombok via a short boat journey.
The original and most popular destination in Lombok is Senggigi. An hour west of the island's airport, Senggigi is nestled between a series of sweeping bays.
There is a great mix of beaches, nightlife, watersports and great restaurants.
The area around Kuta also has some of Indonesia's best surf spots. There's a stunning expanse of beaches across a dozen bays with wide stretches of sand, rugged hills and headland backed by lush tropical vegetation.

Gili Islands

The Gili Islands are quickly becoming one of the most fashionable destinations in Indonesia.
These tiny coral atolls are a vision of the ultimate tropical island getaway come to life with palm fringed white beaches, crystal clear waters and an emerald green forest interior.
You can now get a fast ferry direct from Bali or a short boat ride from Lombok to these tiny car free islands.
The largest of the three islands Gili Trawangan has a buzzing party scene but also attracts an increasingly upmarket family crowd.
Gili Air is quieter but still has lots of amenities and little Gili Meno is a low-key romantic getaway and also popular with families wanting the ultimate in seclusion and tranquility.
All three Gilis have amazing tropical beaches and some of the best diving in Indonesia along with great snorkelling straight from the beach.
You can easily island hop between the three Gilis.

Gili Trawangan

Also known as Gili T, this is the largest and most popular of the Gili islands. Once a haven for backpackers Gili T has moved upmarket over the last few years and is now a cosmopolitan and upscale choice for families.
There's still a busy party scene if you look for it but there's also a host of family friendly entertainment options as well. There are several professional dive centres operating from the island for beginners and more experienced divers alike. You'll also find it is one of the cheapest places to dive. There's a wide range of international as well as hip local restaurants particularly close to the harbour.

Gili Meno

This true tropical paradise is the smallest and quietest of the Gilis. This is the ultimate location for a low-key family getaway or romantic break.
Just a mile long and even less wide, you can walk around the entire island in less than two hours. Dining options are mostly casual with BBQ fresh fish grilled on the beach a favourite choice for many.
The crystal waters are teaming with aquatic sealife. Visit the turtle sanctuary, book a diving course or snorkel straight from the beach. There's also an unusual underwater sculpture park where you can take a selfie with the 48 life sized human statues at the bottom of the ocean. Just be sure to take your underwater camera!
Choose one destination to explore, or hop between several. Either way, you'll find plenty of upscale accommodation choices. We'd be delighted to help you find the perfect one for you and your family.

Our Story

In 2005, John Paul Donnelly, began his luxury villa journey. He spent three years building resorts and holiday apartments in Alanya, Turkey, along with his brother, Joe. The concept was to create the most luxurious villas on the Turkish coastline and provide clients, along with their family and friends, the opportunity to enjoy exclusive holidays together.

By 2008, after the successful development of 3 resorts, JP had well and truly fallen into the world of villa rentals. With a portfolio of 6 villas and a desire to explore new places, he decided it was time to take the villa rental business outside of Turkey. He wanted to give his clients access to beautiful holiday rentals in destinations across the globe.

The expanding villa rental company was rebranded in 2011 to 5 Star Villa Holidays, and today 5 Star Villa Holidays offers over 10,000 luxury villas around the world.

JP and his partner, Helena are currently travelling the globe, devoted to hand selecting the best villas and property management companies, and giving them their stamp of approval! 5 Star Villa Holidays' ambition goes beyond being an ordinary holiday rental company. It is a marketplace for luxurious and exclusive villas around the world.
