From its hilltop perch on the island’s remote eastern coast, the villa overlooks the calm blue waters and swaying coconut palms of Labuan Amuk Bay, where traditional fishing boats sail the trade winds by day and star-filled skies twinkle above the inky void at night. Open, breezy and bright with sea views that will make you swoon, we provide you with nothing but the very best in service and cuisine to ensure that you will want for nothing. Whether you fancy lazing beside the pool, working out in the gym, indulging in a massage, sipping cocktails at the bar, alfresco dining under the frangipanis, or donning tuxedos, tiaras and little back dresses for a more formal soiree in the dining hall – the choice is yours, just as it should be. 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.
The top floor of the main pavilion houses the formal living/dining room and kitchen area and opens out onto a balcony. On the ground floor are two of the guest bedrooms, both flanking a large air-conditioned TV room and lounge. The second pavilion presents a master bedroom on each floor, while outside, beside the pool, is a bar complete with an alfresco lounge and dining space on the deck. Behind the living areas is a well-equipped gym.
The garden is swimming with places to relax in either an upright or horizontal position. Eight sun loungers line the pool’s deck and terrace, some sharing the shade of the yellow and pink frangipani trees that overhang the 18-metre infinity-edge pool. A well-stocked bar, complete with swivel stools and martini shakers, sits next to a cushioned sitting area on the terrace, and a long 10-seater wooden table provides an alfresco luncheon venue. A manicured lawn stretches towards a cushioned Balinese gazebo at the very front of the property, right upon the cliff’s edge.
Although Villa Asada is a great villa for families, toddlers will need to be carefully supervised around the swimming pool, fish pond and lily pond. Kids will love the lawn – perfect for a game of tag or football and there are some lovely wooden animal statues that the gardener arranges in different spots every day. Kids will also love the Table Tennis, which can be used either indoors or outdoors.
Villa Asada can be rented as a three or four bedroom property outside of peak season. Through the wide carved doors of the upstairs master bedroom is where the magic happens at Asada. A vast palace of a room with high ceilings, private balconies, a king-sized bed sheathed in white netting, and a black-tiled bathroom fit for a queen. Privacy and ocean views in two directions make it hard to leave your bed each morning. Instead, why not order room service and revel in a comfort you just know you could become accustomed to.
The downstairs master is a mirror image of the room above except with its own terrace onto the garden and the pool. The views from the king-sized bed are every bit as awe-inspiring, and in the bathroom is the added bonus of an open-air shower that takes bathing to a whole different level.
Flanking the downstairs TV lounge the two guest rooms are identical, offering more than enough space, light and comfort for a delightful stay. They both have queen-sized beds and are tastefully filled with colourful soft furnishings and toe-pleasingly warm timber floors. Each leads out to the pool terrace and adjoins the TV room making them ideal for kids, and their ensuite bathrooms have both rain showers and tubs. One room offers a slight advantage in that it looks out over the pool and has a lily pond view from both the bed and the bath.
Villa Asada is entered via the upper level living and dining room, and this is where the cold towels, tropical drinks and a warm Bali greeting await. This long bright living space, is furnished with comfortable couches, a dining table for 12, and several lovely antique pieces, and features a Sonos surround-sound system. Across the front wall, French doors fold back to show off the stunning views from a balcony, where a second, more informal dining table gives guests a chance to watch the twinkling lights of the coastline by night, or to take in the twin blues of the sky and sea over a leisurely breakfast. At the far end of the room is an open-plan designer kitchen with breakfast bar.
The large and comfortable air-conditioned TV lounge lies downstairs between the two guest bedrooms and makes a beautiful respite from the Bali heat. Sink into its yielding couches and easy chairs or beanbags and read a book or watch a Hollywood blockbuster on the massive, surround-sound-equipped flat-screen TV while munching on popcorn. The kids will be kept entertained for hours in this room, giving you more time to laze in the sun, take a dip in the pool or enjoy a work-out in the villa’s well-equipped gym.
Villa Asada is located 200 metres from the main road in a rural coastal area, so the services of the villa’s car and driver are essential. Prestigious neighbours within two kilometres include two of the best resorts in Bali – Amankila and Alila Manggis. A short drive will bring you to the small seaside town of Candidasa (5km), and the 700-year-old walled village of Tenganan (7km) – a stronghold of native traditions. There are plenty of eateries in Candidasa, ranging from restaurants serving Western cuisine to warung-style cafes serving local dishes and seafood galore. The best beaches in the locality are Pasir Putih (10km), a white-sand crescent-shaped beach bordered by coconut groves, and Pantai Kecil near the picturesque village and ferry port of Padang Bai.
All 10 of the staff at Villa Asada, from the manager to the gardener, are highly trained professionals who know their jobs and perform them admirably to ensure your stay will be as perfect as can be. Each member of staff is extremely discreet, and are more than happy to be engaged in a conversation should you wish to stop and chat about life in Bali and exploring the local area.
The manager is on hand at all times to oversee the smooth running of his ship and he never seems to miss a beat. Whether he is checking that your meal is ok, or that there is enough ice in your drink, or tonic in the fridge, with him on the job you will find yourselves wanting for nothing. Asada’s two chefs will treat your palate to some superior flavours and tastes.
The butler and villa attendants are going to make your days beside the pool and mealtimes a seamless exercise in ease and satisfaction. Asada’s grounds and pool are kept in immaculate condition by the villa’s gardener. The security staff are on rotating shifts from 3pm until 7am. The daytime staff as well as the villa manager provide security throughout the day.
