If you seek the essence of Bali beachfront tropical luxury, this is it.
Villa Melissa has 30 metres of beach frontage, and three of its five bedrooms have expansive and unimpeded sea views. Nowhere in Bali is more beachfront than this.
Gifted French designers Gaelle Echene and Charles Pelletier have created a unique ambience that combines beachcomber insouciance with utter luxury – living areas are beautifully sited to the beach, the sea and the sky.
There really is room to move and to breath in the sea air, for Villa Melissa is truly expansive. Floor space over two levels is more than 800 square metres, and the garden and pool are a vast 2500 square metres.
Villa Melissa has five air-conditioned double bedrooms with king-, queen, and prince-sized beds. Each has an ensuite bathroom with bathtub as well as shower. Three bedrooms have ocean views. [back to top]
The unenclosed living room, with mezzanine doubles as a cinema with a High Definition movie system. It measures 100 square metres.
The 60 square metre dining room is air-conditioned, but can also be thrown open with French doors. [back to top]
Your Balinese staff are unobtrusive and discreet, but ever friendly and helpful. Your butler, who acts as major domo and concierge, also manages your household staff. Our French executive chef helps you choose your menus, and oversees your own sous chefs and kitchen staff.
Each bedroom has its own 37 inch LCD television screen with satellite TV programming, DVD and Bose sound system.
There’s an iPod dock which is connected to speakers throughout the villa and the garden.
There’s a substantial media room with a High Definition movie projection system, plus a library of the latest films on dvd.
There’s a tennis court with all-weather surface and night-lighting that’s yours to enjoy. A selection of fitness equipment is also available should you want something more strenuous than long beach walks to keep in shape.
The entire estate is covered by an unlimited WiFi satellite broadband system which you is yours to enjoy while you are our guest.
POOL & GARDENS
Villa Melissa sits on 2500 square metres of Bali beachfront land planted in lush tropical vegetation and gently swaying palms.
There are 30 metres of beachfront, so you literally step off your front lawn on to the sand.
The two pools are extensive in scope too. The main infinity pool measures 20 x 5 metres for a total of 100 square metres.
The smaller 40 square metres pool, with a maximum depth of 140 centimetres, is great for children, but also fun for adults to splash around in too.
FOOD & DRINK
Villa Melissa has an innovative and rather unusual approach to food and drink.
We want you to feel as free in our villa as you would if it was your own.
And that means that you choose what food, soft drinks, beers, wines and spirits you want to enjoy, you set a budget, you give your butler money to cover your shopping, plus a 15% handling fee. Your butler arranges your purchases at local markets, delicatessens, specialty shops and liquor stores. There’s absolutely no mark-up or premium for the preparation or serving of the food and drink you order.
French executive chef Sebastien Robuchon and his team of sous chefs provide an eclectic menu selection melding classic French cooking, nouvelle cuisine, as well as Indonesian/Asian fusion food.
A selection of Sebastien’s favourite dishes include Seared tomatoes and scallops carpaccio with arugula pesto and dry lemon skin, Cucumber and fennel chilled soup, Young papaya and seafood spicy soup, Butterfish filets “en ecailles” with paprika ratatouille and basil oil, Seared tuna tournedos with asparagus and warm vinaigrette, garlic and olive mash.
In terms of desserts, the Warm chocolate tart, the Exotic fruit “rosace” with coconut jelly and tropical syrup and the Mango and balsamic Tatin tart are among his masterpieces.
The length and breadth of the culinary experience is not limited to the suggested menus. You are actively encouraged to spend time with Sebastien and develop a menu that reflects your own good taste.
You can enjoy your time with us in many different ways…
Bali is well-known for its culture, an important part of which are dance performances.
Many of these can be held on the beach in front of your villa. The kecak dance, which can involve up to 300 dancers, can be arranged for you with a few days notice. Simply ask your butler to tell you about Balinese dances which are suitable for your own performance on the beachfront.
Villa Melissa shares an all-weather tennis court with night-lighting, so pack your racquets if tennis is your game.
If you’re into keeping fit, we can introduce you to a personal trainer; if you’d like to learn to surf, an instructor can visit and teach you in the ocean in front of the villa. For a somewhat more relaxing time, a yoga teacher will take you for a class; and, of course, we can arrange a massage therapist to call.
Also, as a guest at Villa Melissa, you get complimentary membership of The Canggu Club, where you will be able to enjoy a variety of sports, as well as make use of a gymnasium, library, restaurant and pub bar. There's a large family pool and a splash park for children.
In addition, there are literally hundreds of outside activities you can enjoy in Bali. These might include the usual tourist outings. No holiday in Bali would be complete without a visit to the mountains of the interior, to one of the important temples such as Tanah Lot, Uluwatu or Besakih, or to the art markets of Ubud or Sukawati.
At Villa Melissa you have the use of a car and for up to 10 consecutive hours daily. Talk to your butler about an itinerary that will cover the place you’re interested in seeing.
In addition there are many other activities you might consider. These include:
Golf (The world-famous Greg Norman designed Nirwana course is just 3.5 km north west of Villa Melissa.)
Surfing (including learn to surf lessons)
Island tours by Harley-Davidson
