WELCOME TO CASA BRIO
Nestled down a quiet street in the heart of cosmopolitan Seminyak, lies Casa Brio, a stunning four-bedroom villa. Surrounded by a peaceful and beautifully manicured tropical garden, it’s hard to believe that this spacious, contemporary villa lies within walking distance of the best that Bali has to offer: fabulous dining, stylish bars, hip cafés, brilliant shopping and world-class spas, not to mention the beach and some incredible surf breaks.
Splash in the sparkling 21-metre-long pool, relax on a sun lounger with an ice cold drink or unwind with a traditional Balinese massage in the gazebo. Everything is possible at Casa Brio, where you are looked after around the clock by a team of charming and professional staff who will arrange sunset cocktails on the rooftop terrace, indulgent dinners in the semi-alfresco dining pavilion, and make sure that all your holiday wishes are met.
ABOUT CASA BRIO
In Italian, ‘brio’ means life, energy and enthusiasm, and there is no doubt that this villa captures that essence perfectly. Casa Brio is a wonderfully spacious and light-filled villa exuding contemporary elegance with its clean lines and tasteful neutral tones, and built using the best quality materials.
While Italian in style, Casa Brio is truly Balinese in its essence. Set within a lush tropical garden resplendent with palm trees, frangipanis and orchids the villa has been designed to take advantage of its exotic location and offers bountiful spaces in which to luxuriate, be it poolside under a shady umbrella, on a comfy sofa in the open-sided lounge pavilion, or in the air-conditioned comfort of the villa’s entertainment room.
The warm and friendly Balinese staff, with their bright smiles and professional attitude, will ensure that you want for nothing. Your villa manager can book you a table at one of Seminyak’s world-class restaurants, or you can simply enjoy the services of Casa Brio’s private cook, who will serve up gourmet cuisine using only the freshest ingredients in the privacy and comfort of your villa.
Casa Brio is the perfect choice for families or groups of friends wanting to get together in tasteful surroundings; a place that’s ideally located to take advantage of everything that sophisticated Bali has to offer, or a place to simply relax and unwind.
Casa Brio has two spacious king-bedded master suites. The light and airy ground floor master conveniently opens onto the garden and pool while the second floor suite has a covered balcony with charming views over the rooftops of Seminyak. Both master suites have a satellite television and DVD player and can be cooled by either air-conditioning or ceiling fans. Two large ensuite bathrooms feature elegant stone flooring, twin stone sinks, rain showers and bathtubs. The ground floor bathroom boasts a stunning outdoor bathtub surrounded by tropical gardens.
The villa’s two guest bedrooms each feature twin beds, which can be joined together to form a king size bed. These rooms lie adjacent to the master bedrooms creating an ideal set-up for families wanting to be close to the kids, but also allowing flexibility for groups of friends travelling together. Each guest bedroom has an ensuite bathroom with twin stone sinks, rain shower and bathtub, while the upstairs guest bedroom has the additional benefit of a furnished covered balcony. Should extra sleeping space be required, the entertainment room, which has an adjacent shower room, can be easily converted into a fifth bedroom for a small additional fee.
What makes the lounge and dining pavilion at Casa Brio so special is the wonderful interplay between indoor and outdoor space; unconfined by doors or windows, the balmy Balinese breezes flow through effortlessly. The marble-floored, open-plan lounge and dining area, which also features a bar with seating for three, is backed by a ‘wall’ of palms and luxuriant tropical plants and overlooks the garden and pool area. Settle down on the rattan sofas under the traditional pitched roof, lulled by the gentle whir of the ceiling fans, while you watch the poolside comings and goings.
The kitchen is separated by a door from the lounge and dining area and comes well equipped with everything required to produce delicious meals which can be enjoyed at the dining table with seating for ten.
The entertainment room provides the perfect sanctuary for those seeking air-conditioned comfort. The room is equipped with a satellite television, DVD player, iPod docking station, small library, writing desk, and sofas on which to kick back and watch a movie or enjoy a quiet read.
There is no shortage of outdoor relaxation space at Casa Brio; from the delightfully spacious, cushioned gazebo at one end of the pool, to the six umbrella-shaded sun loungers on the wooden deck, to the cosy nook on the ground floor of the bedroom pavilion, that makes the perfect setting for an afternoon nap. The poolside area is also a fabulous spot to hold an intimate garden party or a barbecue.
The rooftop terrace was designed for guests to enjoy alfresco dining day or night. In the daytime the table for ten is shaded by an umbrella while in the evening you can enjoy a meal under the stars. With its views over Seminyak, this terrace is also a lovely setting for a sunset drink.
Your private cook is well versed in both Indonesian and Western cuisines. Just discuss your requirements three hours in advance so that the kitchen staff can buy the freshest ingredients available.
Guests will be requested to provide grocery money in advance and the staff will do the shopping and keep receipts for reference. Groceries and beverages are billed at cost price plus 20% service charge.
One of the greatest advantages of staying in a villa is the personal service provided by a dedicated team of professional staff. The team at Casa Brio has been thoughtfully recruited according to their skills and personality; many of them are part of the local village community and have been working at Casa Brio since the day it opened.
The aim of the staff is to look after every villa guest – from toddler to grandparent – in true Balinese style. The villa manager and cook, in particular, will be only too delighted to discuss your desires or concerns and do what they can to guarantee a relaxed and enjoyable holiday.

CHILDREN AT CASA BRIO
The family-friendly advantages of a villa holiday are many, including access to your own private facilities and the freedom to use them whenever you want. Knowing that the kids can run around happily, independently and safely, without you having to worry about other guests, is a real plus – and one that means parents are certain to have a more relaxed holiday too.
Casa Brio is a great villa for families. The 21-metre swimming pool features a special shallow section for the little ones which has a safety net so children can’t enter the deeper water, and there is also a range of pool toys. Those travelling with toddlers should be aware that (in common with many Bali villas) there are some open fish ponds and water features to watch out for. The villa is also well equipped with children’s DVDs and games.
The team of friendly staff at Casa Brio will make children feel as welcome as adults, and having these willing helpers on hand gives guests plenty of flexibility and freedom to do their own exploring beyond the villa grounds (full-time babysitting incurs a small extra cost).
Although the equipped kitchen allows you to prepare meals for fussy eaters or babies with ease, staff will happily to do this for you – just talk through your requirements and meal schedules with the villa manager or cook and they will take care of the rest. Banana pancakes by the pool for breakfast? Toasted sandwiches in the entertainment room for lunch? No problem. The cook can customise all meals to suit children’s taste buds.
And don’t worry about packing all that cumbersome kids’ equipment for your stay. Just let us know what you need; anything we don’t have in-house (villa facilities include a baby cot and high chair) we can arrange for you upon request.
And when the excitement of exploring the villa starts to wear off, check out our page; there’s plenty in the area to keep kids of all ages amused throughout the holiday.
Feel like a body scrub or massage? Just ask our staff to bring the spa to you! We can recommend deluxe treatments carried out in the privacy of your own villa by fully trained therapists from a reputable local spa (extra charges will apply). Or, simply stroll around the corner to find some of Bali’s most coveted Spas, including Bodyworks, Cool and Esthetic. Here’s a sample of what’s on the menu:
Release built up tension with a traditional Balinese massage. Using a combination of gentle stretches, acupressure and aromatherapy oils to stimulate the flow of blood, oxygen and energy around your body, you will feel totally relaxed in no time.
Foot reflexology is a natural healing art based on the principle that there are reflexes in the feet which correspond to every part of the body. Through application of pressure on these reflexes tension is relieved and circulation improved leaving you feeling balanced.
A full body scrub will exfoliate and hydrate your skin leaving it soft and smooth. A rejuvenating scrub combines an abrasive material such as salt, coffee, rice bran or pecan hulls with essential oils to remove any impurities and make your skin glow.
Our hands and feet work hard for us every day but rarely get the attention they deserve. Treat them to a manicure or pedicure, which usually comes with the added bonus of a quick hand or foot massage.
Ideally positioned to offer tropical tranquillity, beach fun and sophisticated shopping and dining choices, Casa Brio’s location is every holidaymaker’s dream.
The villa is within walking distance of many of Bali’s iconic restaurants and bars, including Potato Head Beach Club, Ku de Ta, Sarong and Métis. Guests will delight in the variety of spas virtually on Casa Brio’s doorstep, and the abundance of fabulous boutiques offering everything from clothing to jewellery to home wares. The ocean is just a five-minute walk away and surfers will love the breaks on nearby Canggu Beach. If that’s all too energetic then simply take a sunset stroll to one of the many beach bars and feel sand between your toes.
