We recently welcomed famous Indonesian actress, Nikita Willy, at Villa Cendrawasih, a contemporary five-bedroom sanctuary in Seminyak, Bali. Wanting to escape the cacophony of the city, Nikita moved into this private retreat with her loved ones for four nights. In line with Elite Havens’ promise to help you create lasting memories, the villa holiday was also the perfect setting for her mother in law’s birthday celebration.

Being a celebrity, Nikita’s time is precious. Though she was strictly off work, the good sport that she is, Nikita sat down with us for a tête-à-tête. Read on to get an exclusive, insider look at her picture-postcard holiday.

The Villa

An enjoyable and rejuvenating holiday is at the core of the Elite Havens experience. All our guests, including a long list of A-listers who have checked into elite havens, crave to come back even if they have just left.

Nikita’s delighted expression said it all when asked how her stay was. “Lovely”, she said, her face lit up. What in particular did she like about the villa stay? Nikita shared, “The villa was spacious; we were served mouthwatering food and the staff was discreet yet friendly.”


Delectable Food

It is no secret that celebrities eat at some of the best places in the world and when Nikita was asked if the gastronomic highlights of their holiday met her high standards, she couldn’t stop gushing about the BBQ experience she and her group indulged in at Villa Cendrawasih. Freshly made food using the best locally produced, served with a smile in the alfresco setting of your villa’s gardens. It’s no wonder that the Elite Havens barbecue experience delighted even this high-flyer.

Ticking All the Boxes

No celebrity one-on-one is complete without asking our VIP guests what their favourite part of the villa was.

“Aside from my family loving the private pool, I personally love the fully equipped gym inside the villa,” Nikita answered. “It is so difficult to find a well-equipped gym with good quality equipment while travelling but Villa Cendrawasih took care of all my needs!”

Nikita added that she also loved the villa’s spacious gardens and rooftop. As a yogi and health enthusiast, the vibe of a holiday home is important to her and Villa Cendrawasih offered all the tranquillity that she needed.

Location is Key

Though our villas are destinations in themselves, being centrally located adds convenience to a blissful holiday. With the coolest nightspots and the sandy beach just at the door, Villa Cendrawasih is a great illustration of utter seclusion without sacrificing convenience. “What made me love this villa more is the location. We were close to everything! Waking up at 6am to go on a morning walk outside the villa and to find a cup of coffee with my mother was one of the simple yet memorable highlights of my trip.”, Nikita smiled.

Staff and Service

When asked about the service offered by the in-villa staff, Nikita couldn’t help but smile remembering the five-star treatment she and her family received.

“The staff was really helpful and friendly. We only spent four nights and I feel like I have gained a new family.” How sweet of you, Nikita!

Family Celebrations

The villa life offers the ultimate luxury of privacy. As the entire villa is yours for the duration of your stay, it is the perfect venue for celebrating one of life’s important milestones such as birthdays. “We celebrated my mother-in-law’s birthday at Villa Cendrawasih and it was so amazing! Thank you so much for accommodating all our requests.”

When asked if she would recommend this villa to family and friends, “Yes! If you’re travelling with the entire family as I did, you need a marvellous place like Villa Cendrawasih!” We are humbled by your kind words, Nikita. We hope to host you again soon.
