The Maharaj is located in Petitenget – on Seminyak‘s northern fringes – and is one of the most popular locations in Bali: a fast emerging, chic urban village but one that can still yield scenes of Balinese local life. Tucked down a sleepy cul-de-sac, the villa rests amongst similar luxury holiday villa neighbours. Petitenget beach is conveniently situated just a few minutes’ walk away: this quiet stretch of sand and pounding surf is more laid-back than the more bustling Seminyak, Legian and Kuta beaches further south. As well as great surfing, these beaches provide some of the premier spots to enjoy Bali’s celebrated sunsets. Opposite the beach entrance, Pura Dalem Petitenget is one of the island’s most revered temples. Petitenget boasts a remarkable cluster of unnervingly trendy and renowned gourmet restaurants – such as La Lucciola, Hu’u, Sarong and Métis – as well as sublime wining-dining establishments within the recently opened, W Retreat and Spa Bali. The villa is also close to the Potato Head Beach Club and well-known jetsetters haunt, Ku Dé Ta.
The Maharaj appears understated and compact (covering 1,100sqm), but you’ll find this bijou family-oriented holiday villa worth its weight in gold during your Island of the God’s sojourn. Off a peaceful cul-de-sac in the chic urban village of Petitenget, narrow wooden entrance doors lead through to sweet tropical gardens and an utterly charming four-bedroom villa. In this peaceful hideaway, you are immediately embraced like one of the family.
Since 2002, the villa’s owners and informal but attentive staff have created a peaceful hideaway, ideal for families, where guests feel relaxed enough to pop in and out of the kitchen at mealtimes, or talk at length about local customs and recommended dining spots with the amiable – and consummate – villa manager. All modern comforts are supplied, such as two flat-screen TVs and DVDs, sound system, and shaded, free-form 12m pool, but there is a refreshing lack of pretentiousness and superfluous adornments. Sunlight-drenched interiors focus on comfort and are furnished in a simple yet tasteful style.
The ground floor of the main building consists of a sunny, open-plan, open-sided living-dining area, featuring marble floor, thick white pillars and high, traditional-style ceiling. This area is kept cool by four ceiling fans and protected from the weather by bamboo blinds. Touches of ethnic-style décor include a series of primitive wooden masks and extensive, bas relief stone work, illuminated by spotlights. A section of the space is set aside for TV viewing and entertainment, with flat-screen satellite TV and DVD player disguised in a wooden cabinet, plus a stack of board games, books and DVDs. Seating comprises two striking bleached teak sofas and a large table, plus a card table with six chairs. Just outside, a marvelously inviting leather hammock is strung between trees. At the opposite end, the dining area features a no-frills, long wooden dining table seating up to ten; a CD player with iPod dock and wall speakers provide sounds. Behind mirrored sliding doors are the simple yet well-equipped kitchen – open-sided at one end and cooled by ceiling fan – and TV room. Providing both air conditioning and ceiling fan, this comfortable room comes with satellite flat-screen TV, DVD player and speakers, plus comfy L-shaped sofa and floor cushions.
The main villa and cottage annex all face lovely mature gardens of lush green palms, bursts of bougainvillea and manicured lawns, while on the opposite side of the living area, a sheltered courtyard with white pebbles, tropical plants and Palimanan stone floor, is ideal for kid’s play or yoga. The gorgeous 12 x 4m free-form pool – shaded by aged frangipani trees and coconut palms and overseen by a serene Buddha statue adorned daily with flower garlands – contains a shallow kid’s section and is surrounded by a timbered deck with four sun-loungers, as well as rattan table and chairs: perfect for afternoon tea or sundowners. On the left of the pool is an out-in-the-elements shower and on the right the balé, which contains two massage beds for relaxing treatments in a blissful poolside setting. The property is encircled by walls and edged with luscious plants and foliage.
The villa contains four ensuite bedrooms plus one nanny or child’s room. Each of the bedrooms features glass and wood patio doors, floor-to-ceiling windows shielded by contemporary-style wood blinds and marble floors. In keeping with the homely ambiance, bedrooms are simply but tastefully furnished with nut-brown wood furniture and the odd splash of modern art; décor and gadgetry are kept to a minimum. The beds in all four rooms are draped with elaborate white mosquito net canopies. Air-conditioning (camouflaged behind wood grills) and ceiling fans keep spaces cool.
