Fall asleep to the soothing sounds of the ocean waves…
Guests are welcome to move right in and experience a sense of space with hotel standard service, without worrying about the kids disrupting other guests!
Perhaps one of the greatest joys of staying here is being able to stroll through the village and meet the friendly local residents as they go about their rural work and religious devotion, giving you an authentic glimpse into the daily lives of the people who make this island so warm and welcoming.
The villa’s private chef is at your service to prepare daily breakfast, lunch and dinner. Dinner parties, functions, healthy foods, unique dietary requirements and special orders can all be catered for, and meals can be a simple affair, a poolside barbecue, or a grand banquet according to your whim. Vegetarian and children’s dishes are also included on the suggestion menu.
The villa is packed with facilities to satisfy and entertain every holidaymaker. Indoors are large, air-conditioned, open-plan living spaces. PlayStation, Wii and Xbox (with a 60-inch smart TV to play them on), as well as a whole host of regular games and toys, will keep the kids amused.
Outdoors, the poolside sun loungers invite relaxation. Enjoy casual lunches and tropical evening meals in the open-sided dining pavilion, followed by a stroll down to the beach for a paddle in the sea. At night enjoy air-conditioned comfort, or slide back the French doors and let the sea breeze cool your bedroom.
Five-bedroom Seseh Beach Villa I and six-bedroom Seseh Beach Villa II are nighbouring properties and share a professional staff team. A further two beds can be made available at the Villa to sleep a total of 12 guests in style.
The villas share a main thatch-roofed entrance and are linked via individual gates from a pretty terraced garden area complete with ornamental water features and fish-filled ponds. If you have rented only one Villa, the gate is shut and guests experience genuine privacy.
The Villa is located moments from the ocean in a traditional village that has a very strong sense of community and still retains the customs and culture of old Bali. There are no sophisticated facilities in the area, so local activities are limited to walks on the beach or gentle hikes through the glorious rice fields. Alternatively, you can join in with some of the village activities, watch the temple processions, or befriend the staff and get invited to ceremonies. However, with the services of the villas’ complimentary car and driver, Bali’s many cultural, natural, gastronomic and retail delights are all within easy reach.
The hipster Surf scene of Canggu is a ten minute drive away and the limelights and restaurants of Seminyak are twenty minutes.
The symmetrical villa comprises a main two-storey building, a flat lawn, and a pair of open-sided thatched pavilions (one for dining and the other for lounging) situated on either side of a 16.5-metre swimming pool.
The main building comprises a living and dining room with an integrated bar flanked on either side by two-storey wings containing the five bedrooms and the kitchen. The two master bedrooms are situated upstairs in each wing, both with balconies overlooking the sea. Accessed via doors from the master bathrooms is a rooftop deck.
The two master suites are situated upstairs in separate wings, offering spectacular sea views from their four-poster king-size beds and from their breezy balconies, which are beautiful spots for relaxing in private. Guests can enjoy satellite-channel TVs and DVD players, walk-through dressing rooms, and air-conditioned bathrooms with an indoor and an outdoor shower, as well as a rooftop soaking tub.
Two guestrooms lie at the front of the main building on the ground floor, are furnished with king-size beds that convert to twins, and equipped with satellite-channel TVs and DVD players. Glass doors slide open to terraces overlooking the garden and pool while walk-through dressing rooms lead to air-conditioned bathrooms fitted with a shower, and courtyards with a bathtub and shower open to the sky.
With twin beds that convert to a king, and a satellite-channel TV and DVD player, the guest room to the rear of the ground floor is well suited for children. The air-conditioned ensuite bathroom, fitted with a rain shower, leads to a courtyard with a bathtub and another shower open to the sky, as well as a secret outdoor sitting area. Even though this room doesn’t have a sea view, the sound of the waves is ever-present.
The indoor living and dining room offers either air-conditioned comfort or a fan-cooled tropical living experience with floor-to-ceiling glass doors open to the garden. The spacious lounge is comfortably furnished with sofas and a wall unit showcasing artefacts and supporting a 62-inch flat-screen with satellite-channel TV, DVD, Xbox and Playstation. The dining area has a beautiful wooden table for 12 lit by bell-jar lanterns; next to this is a bar counter overhung with copper lanterns.
Situated beside the swimming pool, the charming lounge pavilion is open sided and furnished with water hyacinth sofas and coffee tables. A perfect escape from the sun by day, and gently lit at night by bell-jar lanterns, the room is equipped with ceiling fans and a large satellite-channel TV, which sits behind sliding screen doors.
Paired with the lounge pavilion but situated at the opposite end of the swimming pool, the dining pavilion is furnished with a table for 12 and offers a semi-alfresco dining experience which is truly magical at night accompanied by sea breezes and the sight and sound of rolling waves. Everything has been considered for the comfort of the guests with ceiling fans, lanterns and two adjacent washrooms.
The rooftop deck is the perfect place for a sunset cocktail. Accessed via the two master bathrooms it can be enjoyed as a private space or shared with all of the guests in the villa, with the provision of beanbags and sofas and a low table under the open sky.
The 16.5 x 5-metre swimming pool is bordered by a wide timber deck furnished with eight sunbeds shaded by umbrellas. Within the pool, a sculpture flanked by fire bowls looks beautiful after dark. The garden is planted with giant ‘elephant ear’ taro leaves, and sweet-scented frangipani trees. Between the pool and the main villa building is a wide flat lawn that makes the perfect setting for weddings and events.
