The luxury of Bali … the atmosphere of Indonesia
Located just walking distance to Batu Belig Beach. This 5 Bedroom masterpiece deserves for you to read its description.
This Villa is one of these unique places, where every detail, carefully considered, fills you with a sense of beauty and complete serenity. In its architecture and its decor, everything is completely authentic and real, yet avoids the sometimes sombre look of traditional style. Here the old flirts beautifully with a sense of natural wildness in a contemporary idiom. The extravagantly dimensioned living spaces are refuges of total luxury and wellbeing, available to guests throughout the day. For breakfast, lunch, tea, aperitifs and dinner, you will be spoilt for choice, between the magnificent dining room or a private terrace, the gorgeous kitchen bar or the pool house, the majestic salon or the bar counter…
Luxury and relaxation are the keywords of the establishment, which brings the art of living and the art of welcoming to a peak of perfection.
The main salon, the dining room and the Bar & TV room are three entire ‘joglos’ floating over the water amid waterlilies and giant koi carp. Brought from Java, these houses, with their massive, majestic carved ceiling structures, are the traditional style of home for the rural population of Java. More than 100 years old, they are made from solid teak, which nowadays hard to find. At that period, ancestral know-how, and wood of extraordinarily high quality and cut, permitted the creation of true works of art.
The beauty, colour, and natural use made of ancient wood in the roof-supporting framework, ceilings and floors are breathtaking, and create a unique atmosphere and sense of harmony. These three inter-connected spaces with their vast dimensions are open on all sides, with no walls or enclosures, to maximise the enjoyment of the surrounding gardens and ponds, and benefit from completely natural ‘air conditioning’. You find yourself in the pampering comfort and convenience of luxury and modern technology yet in constant communion with the beautiful and wild natural landscape of Bali.
All the architectural materials, furnishings and decorative objects have been sourced painstakingly from the across the 17,000 islands which form the Indonesian archipelago : different kinds of stone, petrified wood, carved teak, ironwood, lava, mother of pearl, terracotta totems and statuary, shields and spears, lanterns and chandeliers, necklaces and combs, brought directly from Java, Toraja, Sumatra, Sumba, Madura, Papua New Guinea and other islands.
The 25-metre long pool provides a wonderful place to swim. Sun-lovers will enjoy the king-size bed, the “wise” can choose to enjoy the shelter of the pool house or take a siesta in the shade of the balés. There is also an air-conditioined room above one of the pool bales with a sea view that is currently being utilised as a spa room. Truly this property is an extraordinary example of the very rich cultural heritage of Indonesia.
This property is sold on a 22 year lease with an option to extend another 10 years. Comes fully furnished and with the licenses and to rent out to holiday makers.
