Villa Yo-Yo is a peaceful 5-bedroom oasis nestled in the heart of the Batubelig area, less than a kilometre from the beach on Bali's south-western coast.

The beach is renowned for its world-class surf breaks and panoramic coastline views. The trendy Seminyak area, meanwhile, with its glamorous lifestyle and wide choice of internationally acclaimed restaurants - including the famous 'KuDéTa', 'Warisan', 'Living Room', 'Hu'u' and 'La Lucciola' - together with a plethora of chic cocktail bars, exciting nightclubs, sumptuous spas and fashionable boutiques, is only a few minutes' drive away. This region is the most visited part of the island for both tourism and business purposes. The villa is a mere thirty minutes' drive from the international airport, and convenient for all of the main tourist attractions and shopping malls. Easily accessible sporting amenities include a choice of spectacular championship golf courses, the neighbouring 'Canggu Club', tennis facilities, horseback riding, dive schools, sailing cruises and much more.
