Gorgeous Joglo, beautiful pool and Rice Paddie views…
Villa Alea truly is an amazing holiday retreat that features a traditional Javanese wooden Joglo and two bedroom pavilions, wrapping around the wonderful tropical garden where an inviting crystal clear infinity pool sparkles. The greatest feature about this gorgeous villa is not only the Joglo but also the magnificent view over the rice paddies that blends in seamlessly with the lush green exotic garden. You can enjoy this enchanting view from almost anywhere in this private sanctuary and the location is also greaT. Nestled in a peaceful rural area that is actually surprisingly close to the centre of fashionable Seminyak where you can shop till you drop, wine and dine and go clubbing at Bali’s renowned beach clubs. (Think KU DE TA and Potato Head.) The location allows a relaxed pace and a huge sense of space and also allows easy access across to Canggu. Both Seminyak and Canggu can be reached in ten – fifteen minutes by car or scooter. The Villa is located in a secure street with six other private properties.
Beneath the high soaring Joglo roof, from where a majestic chandelier draws your attention, the interior design of this lofty living room is elegant and rustic. With a polished grey marble floor, hand-crafted teak furniture and intriguing traditional artwork. There are beautiful, traditional Balinese day-beds for day-time relaxing and large plush sofas for curling up with a book alternatively. A wide selection of books is provided in the wooden cabinets. For lovely communal dinners there is a large teak table with ten smart chairs for evenings of good food and conversation. There is a cook available for your meals, and guests pay for the cost of ingredients plus a small service fee.
Lovers of the sun will be spending lots of time lazing by the pool on the comfy sun-beds, working on their tan while those who seek an escape from the tropical heat, after swimming some laps in the pool, can beat the heat in the alang-alang roofed gazebo. Take a day-time snooze or enjoy a traditional Balinese massage to the sounds of the wind blowing through the rice paddies. The Villa spills onto a huge grassy area overlooking the rice fields which is a great space for an event or for children to run and play!
The character filled Villa houses 5 air-conditioned bedroom suites. There is also a reduced rental rate available for 4 bedroom use. The spacious master suite is found in a secluded stand-alone bungalow on one side of the pool, soaked in natural light by the full length glass windows and doors that open up to the view of the rice fields and the pool. The deluxe king-size bed, draped by white curtains, promises a perfect night sleep after watching a movie ion the flat-screen TV. The en-suite is also luxurious, fitted with a large black river-rock bathtub and a rain-shower.
The four guest bedrooms are tucked together in a double storey pavilion, opposit to the master suite. Each of these rooms features a deluxe king-size or twin beds along with a TV and DVD-player for entertainment, spacious wardrobe closets and a private en-suite with a rain-shower and all bathroom amenities needed. Each room is individually decorated with a unique mix of Asian-influenced antique and contemporary furniture. All of the bedrooms have generous sized beds with intricately carved wooden headboards, white mosquito netting, pristine white linens covered with cushions, AC, fan, flat screen TV, DVD player and safety deposit boxes. In the en-suite bathroom, you will find a single sink, WC and shower alcove styled in grey-blue tiles. Both rooms on the first floor have views of the 15 meter swimming pool, and are accessed from an external side staircase landing on the balcony.
Running the length of the villa’s garden is a beautiful 15 meter swimming-pool, flanked by a row of four sun chairs at the top of the pool and another two located behind the master room pavilion. Facing these two sunbeds is a traditional balé for reading or a shaded siesta in between refreshing dips in the pool.
This Villa is an excellent choice for those wanting to relax and enjoy the Villa lifestyle while tapping into Seminyak or Canggu with ease.
