Designer Villas with hotel standard services…
Welcome to your spacious one bedroom villa, where steps to the elevated garden follow the curve of the swimming pool to the open living and dining area. The designer living area is spread out below the wing of the dramatically sloping ironwood-shingle roof. To one side of the living area lies the triangular galley kitchen, while to the other, angled under the second roof wing, is the spacious bedroom and its ensuite garden bathroom.
Careful thought has been given to the villa’s romantic living area, resulting in a wonderful sense of space, openness and flow that couples will appreciate. With such a splendid selection of settings to chose from, relaxation comes easy, day or night. Drift between the custom-designed teakwood sofa facing the entertainment centre, the sun-loungers reclining on the pool deck, the tiered shallow section of the pool just beyond the living area, or even the stone bathtub gracing the courtyard garden.
Couples with young families will love the design of this large, light-filled king-sized bedroom with its stylish seating area, window onto the courtyard and sliding doors to the pool deck. There is space for an extra beds for a child and/or a baby cot. There’s no scrimping on space in the garden bathroom either – an elegant expanse of Palimanan stone with foliage-fringed shower, elongated counter with twin basis, and – in the adjacent white-pebbled courtyard – a decadently statuesque stone bathtub.
The Layar ’s personalised spa service allow guests to enjoy an extensive menu of pampering treatments and therapies in the privacy of their villa, including remedial massages, and natural scrubs and body wraps using eco-organic products. Villa guests can also call on The Layar’s Spa Wellness Service for specialist sessions such as cranio sacral therapy, Watsu water therapy, energy healing, personal fitness training and private yoga.
Good food, effortlessly provided and gracefully served, is key to a relaxing and rewarding holiday experience.
Guests at The Layar can enjoy delicious food all day long, with a breakfast menu available from 7am to 11am and an extensive in-villa menu available from 11am to 10pm. Simple favourites such as pizzas and burgers sit alongside more delectable dishes such as crudo of yellow fin tuna, and rabbit and porchini pappardelle. Kids are well looked after too, with their own menu.
Particularly popular are The Layar’s private barbecue dinners – prepared, cooked and served at sunset in your villa garden. Guests also have the option of engaging a private chef who will design a special menu for them to enjoy ‘at home’ in the villa.
However if superb dining and people watching is what you are after try Settimo Cielo which is the fabulous chic Italian restaurant perched directly at the front of the The Layar. Settimo Cielo pulls expats and tourists alike with its great food, pulsing vibe and stylish interior. Open for breakfast, lunch, cocktails or dinner – right on your doorstep.
Guests preferring to self-cater will appreciate the villas’ well-equipped kitchens, and provisions can be found at the gourmet supermarkets only a ten-minute walk away. Although the kitchen is equipped with all you need to prepare simple meals for fussy eaters or babies, there’s also a special menu to suit children’s taste buds with firm favourites like spaghetti bolognaise, mini burgers, chicken fingers and ice cream.
The family friendly advantages of a villa holiday like this 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 Layar is a great villa for families and groups travelling together; its lawn and pool area providing lovely space for play – there’s even a special shallow section for paddlers (safety fences are available for hire). Babysitters can also be organised for a small extra charge should mums and dads want to explore dining options beyond the villa grounds.
