Modern Meets Soul
Here you will discover the comforts of a private home in one of the most stylish villa complexes in Bali. With a range of services that allow individuals to tailor their own holidays, add to the allure. The warm, generous hospitality and a modern take on beautiful Balinese architecture and landscaping are what make this property a great one!
The majestic, five-bedroom villa was built in 2011 and is part of an exclusive enclave of two villas complete with a dedicated on-site spa. This exceptional property blends stylish modern architecture with custom-made furnishings crafted from the century-old recycled timbers of a traditional Indonesian phinisi schooner. With its spacious rooms, large free-form swimming pool, historic joglo balé pavilion, dazzling designer chandeliers, soothing antique water features and high-tech facilities, this is classy and chic. It also presents an abundance of space, making it the perfect venue for group holidays.
The Villa features covered walkways, terraces, ornamental ponds and secret gardens, offering private spaces that guests can escape to, complemented by an abundance of social areas for dining, relaxing and recreation. Characterised by white pillars, ironwood shingle roofs, sliding glass doors with teakwood frames, and a swimming pool that meanders through the centre of the flat velvety lawn.
All five of the bedrooms are equipped with air conditioning, ceiling fans, satellite-channel TVs and Blu-ray disc players. Each has its own unique character or colour scheme – ranging from gold to pink to turquoise – and each is elegantly furnished with beds, cabinets, and chests fashioned from the recycled wood of a traditional sailing boat. Four bedrooms feature king-size beds (two of which can be converted to twins) while the smallest bedroom is furnished with a queen-size bed. The two master bedrooms have retractable mosquito nets around their beds. All five ensuite bathrooms are remarkably spacious; finished with non-slip acid marble floors, and fitted with twin washbasins, soaking tubs, and monsoon showers that are open to the sky in private walled courtyards or gardens. Even the old ship’s rum barrels have been used to create the vanity units in one of the bathrooms.
Master Bedroom Suite
Positioned for complete privacy, the master bedroom suite features opulent furniture set on a burnished teakwood floor. The imposing king-size bed, together with a selection of comfortable seating areas, is oriented towards a private walled garden surrounding a towering tropical tree. There’s another garden off the huge ensuite bathroom – a glamorous space with dressing area, upholstered seats, screened bathtub and both indoor and outdoor showers.
Master Pavilion Guest Suite
Also in the master pavilion is a king-bedded guest suite – perfect for a family with young children. A door connects its large garden bathroom to the master bathroom.
Main Pavilion Guest Suite
The pool-view guest suite in the main pavilion has sliding doors onto covered terraces facing the pool on one side and a koi pond on the other. Like the master suite, its king-size bed has clever mosquito netting, creating four-poster intimacy or retracting to open up the space.
Guest Pavilion Suites
Privately screened by a garden wall, the guest pavilion features two bedroom suites, each with its own entrance, beds that can be configured as a king or twins, and a delightful bathroom with a dressing room and a wall of glass onto a courtyard garden framing an alfresco shower area.
The large living room has glass doors at both the front and the back that can be opened for cross ventilation or closed for air-conditioned comfort (ceiling fans are also an option). This elegant room is furnished with a baby grand piano, an Oriental rug, and segmented sofas and modern daybeds big enough to accommodate ten people. Soaring above the terrazzo floor is a pitched roof with a skylight at its pinnacle which channels sunlight or moonlight into the room and highlights a spectacular chandelier reminiscent of a bunch of gold ribbons. The gold theme is carried through to a fountain ornamenting the pond that lies just beyond this room. The living room is perfect for entertaining as it opens to a broad covered terrace running the length of the building, just a step or two above the pool deck.
Connected to the living room is an air-conditioned home theatre room with Bose surround sound and a 51-inch flat-screen satellite-channel TV and Blu-ray disc player, complemented by a library of 1000 DVDs. The room is furnished with three comfortable sofas, two of which are customised chaise longues, each big enough for two, plus a large daybed-type-sofa big enough for at least four, all are crafted from the recycled wood of an old phinisi boat. Fitted shelves on one wall are filled with books while glass doors open to the covered terrace at the front.
Open on three sides to the pool deck, the dining pavilion features a terrazzo floor and stone pillars supporting a vaulted wood-lined roof. Cooled by natural breezes and four ceiling fans, it is furnished with a solid wood table seating 16 and a sideboard. A guest wash room also leads off the dining pavilion, and to one side is a pond which carries the sound of water in motion as it cascades over a traditional wooden mortar that was originally used for threshing rice.
The villa’s commercial kitchen, professionally equipped with stainless steel appliances, is conveniently situated behind the dining pavilion and is for the sole use of three chefs. However in addition to this is a small kitchenette designated for guest use which is positioned next to the bedrooms towards the back of the property, and equipped with a kettle, coffee maker, toaster and fridge.
The family friendly advantages of a villa holiday are many, including access to your own private facilities and the freedom to use them whenever you want. Knowing that the kids can run around happily, independently and safely, without you having to worry about other guests, is a real plus – and one that means parents are certain to have a more relaxed holiday too.
LataLiana has plenty of open space for play, lots of TVs and a library of 1,000 DVDs, toys, a Sony Playstation and great swimming pools with shallow sections and a selection of pool toys.
The team of friendly staff at LataLiana will make children feel as welcome as adults, and having these willing helpers on hand gives guests plenty of flexibility and freedom to do their own exploring beyond the villa grounds (full-time babysitting incurs a small extra cost).
