An elegant, beautifully designed tropical space….
If you’re seeking a chic pad in the heart of Bali’s sophisticated Seminyak neighborhood that’s stylish, comfortable and perfect for families with children, then look no further! Located just a short stroll from the beach, this elegant four-bedroom villa, hidden behind vine-clad walls and shaded by coconut palms, offers total peace and privacy in a tranquil courtyard-style setting.
Decorated in neutral tones enlivened with bright splashes of colour, this is a soothing and calming oasis to return to after exploring Seminyaks funky boutiques, exquisite galleries, fine restaurants, luxurious spas or trendy bars. With your own in-house chef, private butler, swimming pool and media room, it’s also ideal for those who would rather just stay put and absorb the serenity of the villa.
Luminous with a white facade, French-style shutters, terrazzo tiles, Palimanan stone surrounds and bengkirai wood floors, the villa combines modern and colonial architecture to create a tropical oasis. Inspiration is drawn from the island itself – the beautiful light and colours, exotic flora, vibrant culture and local artisans.
Built around a dazzling T-shaped swimming pool, the villa is practical and compact but offers plenty of space with three separate living areas, an open-plan kitchen and dining room, pool deck, outdoor dining terrace and four air-conditioned bedrooms with large ensuite bathrooms.
To complement the villa, guests are treated to five-star service from two butlers, housekeepers and an experienced in-house chef. Whether it’s mixing cocktails by the pool, preparing an outdoor seafood barbecue, arranging a private yoga class or playing a game of Nintendo Wii with the kids, the warm and friendly staff will do their utmost to make you feel at home.
Guests enter the villa via a Palimanan stone walkway bordered by high walls and hibiscus which leads to a large wooden cantilevered door and a compact garden courtyard. Stepping stones traverse a pond flanked either side by fire bowls and a small lawn planted with coconut trees, to present a central T-shaped swimming pool and Jajaliluna’s three living pavilions.
Closest to the entrance lies the open-plan living/kitchen pavilion which overlooks the pool deck. Symmetrically opposite is the media room and outdoor dining terrace. The main two-storey pavilion, comprising four bedrooms and two living areas, languishes along the far side of the pool, facing west to maximise the sunset views.
The downstairs lounge opens widely onto a timber deck bordering the pool but can be closed off in inclement weather. With cool terrazzo floors, ceiling fan, rattan sofa and comfortable arm chairs, this is the perfect place to sit back and enjoy your favourite music on the Denon sound system. To the rear of the lounge is a small walled garden with a cascading water-wall that creates a soothing ambiance.
A Palimanan stone staircase with glass balustrade leads to the mezzanine TV lounge. Equipped with an L-shaped white leather sofa, beanbags, ceiling fan, a large flat-screen satellite TV, DVD player and Nintendo Wii, this makes a great space for the kids to hang out. This room also opens onto the balcony overlooking the pool.
The villa’s media room is housed in a single-storey poolside pavilion, characterised by an ironwood floor and vaulted roof. Bi-fold doors on three sides can be opened to enjoy the natural breeze or closed for air-conditioned comfort. Equipped with a 42-inch satellite TV, DVD player, Denon surround-sound system and movie box, this is the spot to enjoy a film while relaxing on the deep-cushioned sofas. One wall is fitted with bamboo cupboards and shelves stocked with books and artefacts, while twin alcoves showcase white Buddha-head statues resting on pedestals.
Opposite the media room, across the pool, lies the open-plan kitchen/dining pavilion. The predominately white kitchen is fitted with a stainless steel oven and stove, wok burner, large fridge, coffee machine and microwave, and features a teak bar with six bar stools where guests can sit and sip cocktails while the chef prepares dinner. This pavilion also offers a choice of fan-cooled tropical living or enclosed air-conditioned comfort. The dining area is furnished with a fabulous square dining table (seats eight) and opens out onto the poolside deck.
The dazzling T-shaped swimming pool with cool aquamarine and cobalt blue ceramic tiles forms the focal point of the villa and is fitted with recessed lights to create a lovely night-time ambiance.
Four separate poolside areas cater for different moods: for sun seekers, the Palimanan stone sun terrace is furnished with loungers and umbrellas; for reading or socialising, a timber deck is shaded by sails and furnished with two round rattan sofas; for outdoor dining, the white washed teak dining table and barbecue await, and for those that wish to doze there’s a sheltered daybed, guarded by two Thai statues.
The well-kept garden courtyard features bougainvillea, frangipani trees, coconut palms, native ginger and a small lawn. An outdoor shower is convenient for rinsing off after a swim in the pool or a trip to the beach.
Housed in the main two-storey pavilion with it’s traditional wood-shingled roof, whitewashed walls, ironwood floors and white French shutters, all four light and airy bedrooms are cooled by air-conditioners and ceiling fans and open onto – or overlook – the swimming pool. The beauty for families is that all bedrooms are within the same structure and at night time you can close all external doors and sleep under the same roof.
From its poolside position on the ground floor, the stunning master suite features a king-size bed draped with mosquito netting and is beautifully decorated with bright green, yellow and pink cushions that contrast beautifully against crisp white linens.
A frosted glass door slides open to reveal a huge ensuite bathroom with a walk-in rain shower, twin marble vanities and a walled garden that boasts a second rain shower and a large terrazzo bathtub for starlit bathing.
Guest room downstairs
Opening onto the pool deck as well as the internal living room, the ground floor King Bed room features a mosaic-tiled ensuite bathroom with a small walled garden, a bathtub and an open-air shower.
Guest room upstairs
The upstairs guestroom, which opens onto a balcony overlooking the pool, is furnished with a super-king-size bed and a white-upholstered leather armchair. The ensuite bathroom features a walk-in rain shower and grey marble vanity which opens onto a balcony at the rear. This room is accessed by the upstairs media room that bridges with the fourth bedroom.
The fourth bedroom is also located on the upper floor; accessed from the TV lounge. With mezzanine-style bunks above twin beds, this room is ideal for children, but is also suitable for a couple or a family with two children as the twin beds can easily be converted to a king. This bedroom also has its own en-suite bathroom.
