BALINESE SERENITY, JAPANESE STYLE
THE SEIRYU VILLAS IN SEMINYAK OFFERS COUPLES AND HONEYMOONERS THE ELEGANCE OF EASTERN AESTHETICS MATCHED WITH THE WARMTH OF BALINESE HOSPITALITY
The Japanese and the Balinese have a surprisingly lot in common. For example, both cultures have a deep respect for nature, tranquility and symbols of spirituality. These shared values come together in the Seiryu Villas in Seminyak, a place where travellers can experience the refined elegance of Japanese luxury while also enjoying the warmth and hospitality of the Balinese spirit.
Although it is located just 20 minutes from the airport and within walking distance of some of Seminyak’s hippest neighbourhoods, Seiryu Villas’ manages to exude a sense of Zen-like calm the minute you step through the main entrance, where an azure blue statue of Buddha greets guests.
The word Seiryu can be interpreted to mean “blue dragon,” as well as “clear stream,” and the name is perfectly appropriate for these Eastern-accented accommodations. In the lobby you will find a signature piece of artwork depicting twin dragons, and there are plenty of other dragon-themed elements placed throughout the villas. After checking in, guests will enter a dramatic and expansive corridor that leads to each of the individual villas, with dim lighting and a serene feel that is almost temple-like.
The property includes eight villas all together, four royal pool villas and four deluxe pool villas. As their names imply, each of these villas include their own private pools as well as a host of other luxurious amenities. Each of the villas features subtly themed decor based upon one of the four seasons, while hardwood floors and minimalist architecture give the interiors an understated elegance. The lovely rock filled garden areas by the pools help project a sense of calm that you can soak up as you lay nearby in the plush outdoor daybed.
The villas are filled with smart design touches, such as a door leading directly from the en suite bathrooms to the pool. Each villa is also equipped with a spacious, fully-stocked kitchen including appliances, such as a healthy juice maker, so you can cook to your heart’s content. Of course there is also room service available, courtesy of the on call butler, with a full menu of international dishes available as well as rotating daily specials. In case you actually feel like leaving your luxurious home away from home, you can head to the ocean and hang out at Seiryu Beach Club, a prime spot on the sands of Seminyak Beach available exclusively to its guests, where they will also be provided with umbrellas, towels and water. Guests staying at Seiryu also get a discount on tickets to the nearby Waterbom waterpark.
Seiryu Villas were created with couples and honeymooners in mind, and it is indeed a perfect spot for lovers looking for luxurious accommodations that offer exceptional service, style and seclusion.
