Villa Seascape is a stunning home on the ocean’s edge that is set to raise the bar for contemporary tropical holidays at Nusa Lembonagn Island!
Rare is the villa that offers direct access onto the beach from its pool terrace, as well as fabulous ocean views from nearly every room. Here you have it! The sublime Villa Seascape dazzles on a crescent of bleached-white sand on Nusa Lembongan, a small island just half an hour’s boat ride from Sanur. Stunning indoor and outdoor living space, a media room that can be set up as a fifth bedroom and five-star service including a full-time chef is sure to attract a devoted following for this tropical beach haven — a perfect escape for families or groups of friends. The Villa can be rented as a 4 or 5 bedroom Villa depending on your group size.
Villa Seascape’s double-height living room, media room and three guest bedrooms occupy a contemporary two-storey ocean-facing building. The fourth guest bedroom is housed on the upper floor of the Garden Cottage, a separate building to the rear of the main house. The service kitchen is situated on the ground floor of the Garden Cottage. From the entrance, steps across a courtyard pond lead directly into the living space with open-plan guest kitchen to the left, ground-level bedroom suite and guest cloakroom to the right and, down a few steps, the main living room. This opens onto a dining terrace, beyond which is the swimming pool, sun terrace, pool bar and beach edge seating around a fire-pit. Off the living area is the media room, which can be set up as a fifth bedroom with attached bathroom. Two further guest bedrooms flank the upper level, linked by an aerial bridge that also gives access to the netting-floored mezzanine above the entrance and kitchen area.
Cooled by ceiling fans and the sea breeze, Villa Seascape’s soaring double-height living room is the villa’s social heart. This impressive split-level space is designed with easy entertaining in mind. Glass doors fold back fully onto a double-height terrace where a dining table comfortably seating ten commands pool and ocean views. Within, clusters of contemporary modular sofas and woven rattan ottomans invite both sparkling conversation and quiet repose. The beautifully designed kitchen, with distinctive wedge-shaped island counter is slightly elevated and lightly screened behind columns of distinctive ceramic lamps. While it gives guests the convenience of a fridge, hob and coffee machine, the chef prepares meals in the staff kitchen behind the main villa building.
Massive bamboo-plaited doors to one side of the living room fold back fully to reveal the media room, where an enormous circular mattress piled high with cushions sits on the polished concrete floor facing a 260cm retractable projector screen. Midnight blue cinema-style blackout curtains mean you can watch a movie here any time of the day without the tropical sunlight intruding. To one side are pool-and-ocean views through sliding doors that open onto the terrace. Opposite, mirrored doors open onto a huge semi-open bathroom with walls of mirror and coloured terrazzo, statement blue terrazzo tub with rain shower above, and an alfresco shower in the courtyard. The media room can also be set up as a fifth bedroom if necessary.
Accessed from the aerial walkway above the living area is a netting-floored mezzanine suspended like a huge hammock above the guest kitchen. This is the perfect spot for kids (and adventurous adults) to curl up on a pile of cushions and enjoy a good book or movie (there’s a wall-mounted 52-inch TV with satellite channels and DVD player at one end), while keeping an eye on activities in the living area below.
This stunningly designed poolside space spills out beyond the dining terrace towards the spectacular 15-metre swimming pool. On one side, over-sized beanbags rest on the pebble-stone deck in front of a cushioned bench built into a gracefully curved coral wall. Across the pool is the pool bar where an elongated island of polished concrete and aqua-coloured timber stretches out under a sail awning, providing an outdoor kitchen and a sit-up bar counter for alfresco meals. Inches away from the beach, semi-circular polished concrete seating curves around a fire-pit — the perfect place for sunset cocktails and after-dinner star-gazing.
All five bedroom suites are light, airy, and beautifully designed, with floors of either polished concrete or smoothly ground pebbles, woven seagrass matts, and a restful aqua-meets-neutrals palette. Furniture includes comfortable beds with deep King Koil mattresses and quality cotton bedding, and among the thoughtful extras are reading lights, kimonos and slippers, and beautiful toiletries.
On the upper floor of the Garden Cottage, a super-king bed rests under a romantic white-crepe-tented ceiling before a wall of mirror that enhances the sense of space. Opposite, a comfortably upholstered sofa faces a 52-inch wall-mounted TV with satellite channels and DVD player; draw the gauze curtains to conceal it if you prefer. Lofty double doors of plaited bamboo slide back to reveal the open-sided, bamboo-screened bathroom with celadon porcelain basins and, behind curtains of hanging beads, the large shower enclosure.
This bedroom is on the ground floor of the main house and delivers stunning pool-and-sea views from its king-size bed as well as from the terrace beyond a wall of bi-fold doors. Equally dazzling is the air-conditioned bathroom with its bathtub scooped out on one side of a terrazzo island, double basins decorated with stars, multi-hued terrazzo walls, indoor shower, and private garden courtyard with alfresco shower.
A surprising feature dominates this upper-floor guest suite: the statement sea-view bathtub set into a zen-style teak-wood platform behind the king-size bed. The view is even better from the private sun-trap balcony with neon-pink chairs. A pair of stylish bamboo chairs provides a space to sit and change in comfort within the bathroom, where blue and white basins sit on a terrazzo vanity facing trees through a bamboo screen, and beaded curtains camouflage the walk-in rain-shower.
Ideal for kids or sharers, this second upper-floor bedroom suite has three single beds, two of which can be joined to make a double, and one of which can be used as a sofa. Two rope ottomans sit on the polished concrete floor that flows past floor-to-ceiling bi-fold doors onto a balcony furnished with a double chair facing the magnificent ocean vista. The bathroom continues the sea theme, with colourful twin sinks, a circular terrazzo bathtub and separate shower enclosure hidden behind a curtain of beads.
The luxurious media room has been designed to effortlessly transform into a stunning ocean-view fifth bedroom.
The 25-minute boat ride across the Badung Strait from Sanur is a great way to seriously slow down: leaving the hustle and bustle of the mainland behind and stepping ashore at Mushroom Beach is akin to stepping back in time
All the rooms are adorned with natural materials — polished pebble and teakwood floors, terrazzo walls and bathtubs, bamboo screens, seagrass rugs, custom-designed furniture using plaited rope and rattan, and shells decorating woven baskets, curtain tie-backs and wooden bowls. Among the contemporary luxuries are sublimely comfortable King Koil beds, crisp cotton bed-linen, 52-inch TVs, NID music system, Bose speakers and home cinema.
The entire family will love the many imaginative spaces here, whether hanging out in the huge netted chill-out zone suspended above the living area, lounging in the shallows of the 15-metre pool, gathering around the beach-edge fire-pit for sunset cocktails, or sprawling in front of the cinema screen for a post-dinner movie. While remaining discreetly out of sight until required, the staff is on hand to help guests make the most of their stay; among them is an accomplished chef who can whip up everything from simple lunches to beachfront barbecues and gourmet dinners.
Villa Seascape occupies a commanding position on a small crescent beach on the south-western shore of Nusa Lembongan overlooking the Devil’s Tear, a local landmark where breakers crash along the limestone headland. The cove is home to a handful of prestigious villas, as well as the Sandy Bay Beach Club, which has a popular beachside restaurant and spa. While kids will enjoy playing on the sand, it’s not advisable to swim in the cove due to strong surf and currents. But Dream Beach, a lovely swimming beach, is just a 10-minute stroll away across the headland, while a 15-minute walk northwards brings you to the gentle waters and noted restaurants and bars of Mushroom Bay.
For families Nusa Lembongan delivers the ideal mix of adventure, nature and relaxation. Clamber across the rocks to Devil’s Tear, a craggy limestone outcrop on the southern tip of Sandy Bay; on a clear day, you can see Bali’s sacred mountain. Or Head for Dream Beach, a 10-minute walk southwards along the cliff path, for a swim in a cove of shallow sloping sand, followed by lunch at Café Pandan, set on the cliff top above the beach. For a day enjoying the ocean, let the Villa manager book a jukung, a colourfully painted traditional fishing outrigger, so you can cruise the coastline, visit quiet beaches and enjoy a spot of snorkelling. Visit the deserted beaches and blue lagoons of Nusa Lembongan’s tiny neighbour, Nusa Ceningan, linked by the Yellow Bridge.
One of the many delights of staying in a private villa is the personalised service guests enjoy. Villa Seascape’s gracious, well-trained team are on hand whenever required, and otherwise stay discreetly behind the scenes respecting guests’ privacy. All take pleasure in delighting guests with warm, friendly Bali-style hospitality.
Families are sure to congregate around the pool, where young kids can enjoy the wide shallow ledge that runs the full length of the pool. Meals are fun when served at the sail-covered pool bar counter – no need to change out of a wet swimsuit! Kids of all ages will love the choice of entertainment zones within the villa. The netting-floored mezzanine is a super-cool space for sprawling in front of the TV suspended high above the living room, and the home cinema set-up in the media room, with huge drop-down screen is sure to be a hit. Food-wise, even the fussiest eater will be happy at Seascape. There’s a special children’s menu, and the chef is always happy to customise a dish or create special meals on request. There is of course the option to prepare baby and toddler meals yourself using the guest kitchen. The villa has a high chair, and we’re happy to source cots and baby baths for you upon request.
Feel like a body scrub or massage? Just ask the staff to bring the spa to you! They can recommend deluxe treatments carried out in the privacy of the villa by fully trained therapists from a reputable local spa. (Alternatively, stroll along the beach to Glo Spa at Sandy Bay Beach Club.)
Villa Seascape is an excellent choice on the beautiful tropical island of Nusa Lembongan.
