Set within an exclusive residential enclave behind the Oberoi Hotel, the villa is just five minutes from the world famous Ku Dé Ta and a glamorous array of dining and shopping choices. This centrally located villa is ideal for groups of friends, or a few families who want space to spread out in their own peaceful, private, fully-staffed, three-pavilion oasis all within a short stroll of trendy Seminyak.
Delightfully original, the villa’s architectural design draws on the Indonesian archipelago’s rich heritage and abundance of natural materials. Paying heed to traditional Balinese home layouts, the accommodation is spread over three pavilions, with alang-alang (thatch) roofing and ironwood shingles. In a contemporary interpretation of the old timber joglo and limasan houses of Java, teakwood is richly incorporated throughout the villa’s design, showcasing supreme craftsmanship and creating a depth of character typical of Balinese style. The vast living space is defined by towering wooden pillars created from trees selected by the owner’s architect; teak-embellished ceilings, and Sulawesi floors in the bedroom suites. The Dutch-inspired window and door shutters are another interesting feature as is the incorporation of other natural materials including Palimanan stone, Yogyakarta lavastone, hand-crafted terrazzo, rattan, bamboo and coconut shell.
Two other important Balinese traditions share the limelight with the beautiful design of this villa. Community spirit abounds in the many social gathering spaces scattered throughout the villa, and hospitality from the heart is offered by a team of charming, well-trained, willing staff who are dedicated to creating a holiday haven for their guests.
The stunning six-bedroom retreat is a rare fusion of striking architecture, spacious entertainment spaces and lavish outdoor living. The villa features a gorgeous swimming pool, generous outdoor decking area and is located in one of the most highly sought-after areas on Bali’s south-west coast, just moments from the beach and Seminyak’s boutiques, bars and restaurants. If you have big group or bring more parties, it can be combined with the neighboring sister villa to have 7, 8, 9 or 10 bedroom villa.
Each extensive bedroom features a combination of seating areas and terraces offering guests a choice of both open-plan living and quiet, private corners. Soaring teakwood columns frame the spacious indoor living area. Embellished throughout with traditional Balinese interiors, this is beautifully furnished with oversized sofas, a 12-seater dining table, home entertainment centre, bar and billiard table.
In keeping with the enviro-architectural theme, the chic furniture, including the dining table (a magnificent slab of teak and a talking point in itself), have been designed exclusively for the villa. Sitting effortlessly among these traditional materials are all the comforts of convenient 21st century living: large flat-screen TVs and home entertainment systems, WiFi throughout, and two superbly equipped kitchens.
