The villa nestles amongst the verdant and padi fields of Banjar Umalas. Designed by a renowned Italian architect and published in “Tropical Asian Style”. It is a classic example of modern Balinese architecture. The style blends the contemporary with traditional design and provides a true experience of tropical open-air living. It is an integration into the Balinese garden with its undulating contours of the sloping land site, with signature low roofs, and organic shapes.

It is one of four secluded privately own villas arranged in a shared compound with swimming pool. The villa is beautifully finished in traditional Balinese materials of teak and the local white stone Palimanam. It has three fully air-conditioned bedrooms, two with king size beds and a third with a queen bed, a single bed and a sleeping platform for children.

Fully staffed and equipped the guests have the option to do their own cooking or choose from a menu of Italian and Indonesian specialities prepared by the resident chef, restaurant trained chef, Ibu Wayan. And dine in the open-air pavilion by the lily pond.

Our chef is restaurant trained and is an excellent cook, the selection of dishes ranges from homemade pastas and Indonesian favourites to freshly baked desserts.

The Bali region

Bali, the famed magical Island of the Gods has lost none of its vibrancy with its varied landscape of hills and mountains, rugged coastlines, palm trees and sandy beaches, lush rice terraces and barren volcanic hillsides all providing a picturesque backdrop to its colourful tropical paradise.

The extra dimension comes in its sublimely deeply spiritual and unique culture, stakes a serious claim to be paradise on earth. bEvery aspect of Balinese life is suffused with religion, but the most visible signs are the tiny offerings found in every Balinese house, work place, restaurant, souvenir stall and airport check-in desk. These leaf trays are made daily and can contain an enormous range of offering items: flowers, glutinous rice, cookies, salt, and even cigarettes and coffee!

An astonishing wealth of creativity flourishes on Bali. Whole villages of dancers, musicians, weavers, sculptors, woodcarvers, stonemasons, painters and silversmiths pursue their arts as an expression of religious devotion. The Balinese have also been blessed with the inherently unselfish gift of hospitality.That with the combination of friendly, hospitable people makes it a wonderful destination with something for everyone, and though heavily travelled, it is still easy to find some peace and quiet. With world-class surfing and diving, a large number of cultural, historical and archaeological attractions, this is one of the world's most popular island destinations and one which consistently wins travel awards.

Umalas

The villa is located in the quieter more peaceful area between Seminyak and Canggu. Also known as Kerobokan it is in Bali's south-west coast, which includes Umalas Village and Banjar Semer. Amongst the working rice fields on a clear day you can see the distant mountain views.

It is conveniently close to Seminyak's trendy restaurants and designer boutiques.

Many little warungs and cafes have cropped up in the most unexpected of places, offering surprisingly good food and home/villa delivery services. Our favourite local Wareong Guelis and Bumbak cafe on Jalan Bumbak if you can tear yourselves away from the villa.

There are very few shops as yet which is good! There are a number of local supermarkets, bakeries, garden centres, simple spas close by.

The main road leading north of Seminyak to Kerobokan is lined with furniture stores and workshops.
