Five Reasons to Stay at The BK Village Boutique Hotel in Umalas

Eve Tedja


Look no further than the newly unveiled The BK Village for a stay in a secluded boutique hotel in Umalas for your next Bali holiday.

Umalas’s reputation as a quiet sanctuary – unlike its boisterous neighbours Canggu and Seminyak – is charmingly embodied at The BK Village. A boutique hotel originally created from three private villas, it retains its peaceful residential charm.

The sprawling tropical landscape is now home to 16 private suites with delightful facilities such as a restaurant, a spa, a tea house, a boutique, and a multi-purpose studio for Pilates or yoga classes. Decorated with original artworks from local artists, guests are more than welcome to explore the property’s collection at their leisure.

The BK Village boutique hotel is suitable for couples, families, or small groups who wish to spend quality time discovering the rest of the island together. Housed in old teak wooden houses, each suite is individually-designed and furnished. Couples will enjoy the Suite Joglo while a group of friends or families will find the Two Bedroom Suite or the Three Bedroom Pool Villa compatible with their needs. Here are five reasons why you should stay at The BK Village.

Three swimming pools in Umalas’ boutique hotel

One of the luxuries of The BK Village is having the space to create three public pools in one compound. Located by the reception and the restaurant, the first pool is graciously adorned with palm trees and plenty of cosy blue-cushioned sunbeds for lazy days under the sun. Nearby, the second pool is perfect for laps and floating in floaties. Last but not least, there is a shaded pool by the Tea House where quiet naps are guaranteed.

Tasting menu at Hiiragi Restaurant, Umalas

Hiiragi Restaurant, Umalas’ new Peruvian-Japanese eatery 

The restaurant evolves throughout the day. For lunch, it offers guests nourishing Western and Asian menus for an enticing dining experience during their stay. From 6pm to 11pm, the newly opened Hiiragi Restaurant highlights delicious Peruvian-Japanese flavour on its menu.

With views of the surrounding garden and the pool, start your dinner with a bottle of chilled white wine and tangy, appetite-inducing starters such as Ceviche Marajuca and Tiradito Salmon. Share the Dragon Roll or the Nigiri Combination with your loved ones before devouring the mains. Wagyu Steak served with Himalayan salt, wafu dressing, and teriyaki sauce is a bovine delight, as does the Ebi Yakitori and Lomo Saltados. Save some room for the Yuzu Tiramisu and Matcha Cheesecake.
