YOUR VILLAS IN PARADISE
LOCATED IN THE RESIDENTIAL AREA OF UMALAS, JUST 35 MINUTES FROM THE INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT, IMMERSE YOURSELF IN A TRADITIONAL JAVANESE LIFESTYLE COMPLEMENTED BY THE MOST LUXURIOUS NATURAL MATERIALS AND TROPICAL SCENERY IMAGINABLE.
As soon as you enter the bamboo-lined driveway leading to Bali Ethnic Villa, plan to leave the ‘real world’ behind. Built with antique carved teak wood, each one of Bali Ethnic Villa’s three residences (Villa Ka, Villa Kayu and Villa Kalua) is grounded in authentic Joglo architecture, yet inspired by French je ne sais quoi. Five-bedroom ‘Villa Ka’ is set within a 4000 square meter tropical sanctuary, in the heart of Seminyak amid Timor ferns and intricately carved statues. Translated from ‘the tropical’, Villa Ka is the largest villa in the compound and could easily be described as a ‘Garden of Eden’. Staffed by an experienced team of chefs and butlers, no request is too whimsical.
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 stone bathtubs, placed gracefully in spacious garden en suites. In the open-air great room, 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.
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 each home.
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 wet bar and billiards table. The villa provides ample space conducive to socializing or enjoying restful down time. Available separately, or as one of the largest estates in Bali with capacity for up to 25 guests, Bali Ethnic Villa has 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.
