NileGuide Expert Says:
The Villa Bali, Singapore
This lush garden retreat, with its rustic bale rooftops, meandering streams and piped Balinese music, so successfully recreates the magic of Bali that you soon forget you are down a winding backstreet in Singapore. Intimate pavilions dotted in amongst the undergrowth are perfect for a romantic soirée, whilst the open-plan bar area encourages convivial gatherings of friends. Other nooks and crannies shelter informal groups tucking into large sharing platters of Balinese, Thai and Indian nibbles. This is one of those hidden gems you want to keep to yourself – but really, there's room enough for everyone.
