An invitation to take a journey in paradise…
As soon as you enter the bamboo-lined driveway leading to the Villa, plan to leave the ‘real world’ behind. Built with antique carved teak wood, grounded in authentic Joglo architecture, yet inspired by French “je ne sais quoi”. The four bedroom retreat is set amongst an expansive tropical sanctuary, so close to Seminyak yet quiet surrounds you amid Timor ferns and intricately carved statues. Staffed by an experienced team of chefs and butlers, no request is too whimsical. For extended groups travelling together the villa has two neighbouring Villas, combined creating 12 rooms.
Each master suite and guest bedroom is appointed in coordination with ancient Feng Shui concepts, with the element of stone, for example, brought in via the form of stunning, one-of-kind bathtubs, placed gracefully in spacious garden en suites. In the open-air lounging area, white washed day beds and settee style sofas are exquisitely upholstered in custom fabrics. With seemingly endless views overlooking manicured gardens and water features, there’s no reason to leave as your private chef is more than capable of mixing a perfect martini or preparing a mouth watering platter of fresh, grilled fish delivered to your room.
In the garden, beside the villa’s stunning swimming pool, woven rattan cocoon pods, wooden hammocks and double chaise longues are shaded by colorful Balinese umbrellas, custom dyed in hues of royal blue, lavender and grapefruit. Hand blown glass, artisan hammered metal sinks and lamps, blossoming orchids and ethereal mosquito netting create a stylish, tropical ambience throughout.
Four-bedroom Villa Kayu provides the estate compound with impeccable common amenities; from the gourmet kitchen to the air-conditioned media room and entertainment pavilion with pool bar and billiards table. The villa provides lots of space for socializing or enjoying restful down time. The Villa has certainly been designed for the discerning traveler who is looking for the very best holiday experience combined with the down to earth flavor of traditional Indonesia.
In the sublime and trendy neighbourhood of Umalas on the edge of busy Seminyak, the villa will give you all the peace and quiet you deserve while on holidays, while still being very close to most activities, bars and restaurants.The center of Seminyak or Petitenget with designer shops, trendy bars and famous restaurant’s Chef are all located no more than 10minutes drive from the villa, including world famous Metis Restaurants, Sardine, W Bar Bali, Kudeta and Potato Head.
Boasting spacious interiors with an open plan design, each Joglo bedroom has a cosy lounge area, in-house bar and a private terrace. Plush sofas, a flat-screen satellite TV and an iPod dock are a standard across all units. The en suite bathrooms are semi open, providing bath or shower facilities and a complete set of toiletries. Two of the bedrooms are located side by side and the other two are stand alone.
There are three separate living zones; a dining and kitchen pavilion, a central living space which is open air and oversized, a great place for the group to come together when they are not playing billiards or watching movies in the third zone which is an enclosed media room.
This unique atmosphere was created by the French charm of Alexa Aguila Genoyer , traveler, photographer and artist , combining ethnic decoration , local materials , contemporary yet cosy facilities, and friendly yet professional service from the Balinese staff.
This is a genuine Villa, where luxury meets character and style.
