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 One and six-bedroom Seseh Beach Villa Two 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.
Entered through an ornate doorway and stepping stones over a fishpond, the ground floor of Seseh Beach Villa Two’s symmetrical main building presents a spacious living room with a TV viewing area, a drinks bar and a sitting area. A guestroom and a four-bed bunkroom lead off one side while at the other is the kitchen, a formal dining room and access to the upper floor. Upstairs are two master bedrooms, two guestrooms and a balcony overlooking the garden and the sea. Within the villa grounds are a dining pavilion, a private 14-metre pool with a sun deck, relaxation pavilion and garden with a large lawn space.
The two master suites are situated upstairs under the high thatched roof, with each offering a view of the pool and garden, and a glimpse of the sea beyond, from the four-poster king-size bed and the adjoining balconies, which are cherished spots for relaxing in private. Guests can enjoy a 39-inch satellite-channel TV in each bedroom, a walk-through dressing room, and an air-conditioned, white and light bathroom with a freestanding oval bathtub for two, twin washbasins and a large, glass-sided, walk-in monsoon shower with a view of the sky through the partially-open roof.
Two of the three air-conditioned guest bedrooms can be found upstairs and one downstairs. Each is furnished with a king-size bed – all can be converted to twin beds – and equipped with a 39-inch satellite-channel TV. Glass doors in the upstairs guestrooms slide open to a large and breezy communal balcony furnished with sofas, armchairs and coffee tables, while the downstairs guest bedroom has a garden terrace. Each bedroom is adjoined by a stylish bathroom with a bathtub and a walk-in shower. The downstairs guestroom also has an outdoor shower.
Located downstairs behind the guest bedroom, the kids’ room has been designed for both sleep and play. Beanbags fill the floor, while the walls are fitted with bunk beds to sleep four kids. The room is equipped with air-conditioning and a 39-inch satellite-channel TV, and adjoined by an ensuite bathroom with a rain shower.
The air-conditioned living room is entered via a thatched porte cochère and a pond with a bubbling, carved-stone water feature. Glass doors on either side can be opened up for a semi-open-air experience with ceiling fans and natural cross-ventilation. This large room features two sitting areas, one of which is oriented around a 65-inch TV/DVD player, and the other towards a bar. Both areas are furnished with sofas, chairs and coffee tables, while the bar beckons with a decorative open stonework façade, high chairs and a set of funky hanging lamps. The sliding door to the garden opens to reveal a sheltered terrace overlooking the lawn, pool and deck.
The villa’s indoor dining room is furnished with a wide table for 14, comfy chairs and a chandelier; guests have the choice of opening the glass doors to the garden or closing them for air-conditioned comfort.
Situated in the garden, to one side of the pool, the dining pavilion is furnished with a table for 12, and offers an informal semi-alfresco dining experience within the sound of the sea. Considerate features include ceiling fans, lanterns and two adjacent washrooms.
Guests will be enticed by the large poolside balé pavilion, sheltered by a thatched roof, fitted with a mattress and scattered with cushions. This is the perfect place for whiling away an afternoon or for enjoying a Balinese massage.
The 14-metre swimming pool is bordered by a timber deck furnished with sun beds and umbrellas. Planted with flowering shrubs, trees and tall bamboo, the garden offers plenty of space for kids to run around, as well as a wide flat lawn ideal for weddings and events. A pretty garden with a communal gateway links the property with Seseh Beach Villa One.
