Villa | 9 bedrooms | sleeps 18
Surrounded by fields of maize and rice and set back just 100m from the black sands of Padang Galak Beach and its promenade topped breakwater, the The property consists of three modern similarly styled houses. Combined, each of the three-bedroomed houses form a single nine-bedroom residence complete with 25m pool and a full complement of staff. Each two-storey house is self contained with its own kitchen, dining, and living rooms making The property ideal for three families sharing. Given the large communal meeting room on the basement floor of one of the houses it would also make a fine executive retreat.
Aesthetically, the houses are a combination of modern, minimalist design with a hint of traditional materials. Interiors are functional without detracting from the panoramic views. The villa comfortably combines wide expanses of glass, wood floors and metal. Walls are washed white and hung with local arts and crafts. Huge bathrooms are modern terrazzo, with jacuzzi tubs in each master suite and large shower stalls. Floor-to-ceiling doors of brushed aluminium fold back to let in delightful sea breezes giving a natural flow from the houses' common areas down to the lawns and swimming pool. Bedrooms are generous, all air-conditioned, with comfy mattresses and good quality linens.
Behind the houses are the staff quarters. The villa comes with a full complement of staff including cleaners, butlers and waitresses, a chef and assistant cook, all under the watchful eye of the villa manager. The chef will handle all provisioning for an additional fee and extra services including car/driver hire and spa treatments can be organised by the villa manager (on guest account).
The The property is set back about 100m from the beach, with uninterrupted views over the Badung Strait with Nusa Penida in the distance. Within the immediate vicinity is little except a few sleepy local houses and villas amongst the rice terraces and fields of tapioca and maize. The small village of Padang Galak is just over a kilometre to the north, but Sanur is the closest tourist town, four kilometres south towards Denpasar. Some of the locals do walk into town along the promenade on which fishermen beach their colourful boats. Sukawati, famous for its cheap local market, is seven kilometres inland en route to the cultural and artistic heart of Bali, Ubud, which is 20 kilometres away. Celuk's silversmiths, the woodcarvers of Mas and a whole host of other craft guilds are all within easy driving distance.
