Villa | 5 bedrooms | sleeps 10
Remote but by no means isolated, deliciously private, flanked by an almost-deserted beach and blessed with one of the most beautiful panoramic views on earth, The property is a rare treasure on the island of Lombok.
Sapi – meaning 'cow' in Indonesian – is an unusual name for a villa, but before it was developed into the architectural wonder that it is today, the property was a simple piece of grazing land for cows, the most prized possessions of any Indonesian farmer and representing the family's status, wealth and happiness. It's only fitting that the owners decided to name their villa in honour of these graceful creatures. Sapi is quite the cherished prize, and its title fits it to a T-bone.
The property is Fantasy Island come to life, with avant-garde architecture, wide open living spaces, five bedrooms, a funky home-theatre, three swimming pools plus a kids' pool, a tennis court and an in-ground 'Hobbit Hole' guesthouse. A fine selection of artwork in all forms of media includes a steel wall sculpture, which, in the context of the villa's Bauhaus design borrowings, 'makes perfect sense'.
The staffing is effortless. The chef and head butler have both worked for the prestigious Oberoi Hotel Group and their experience shines in the service and on the plate. In fact, the fixed daily charge for three gourmet meals is an absolute bargain. The chef will discuss your preferences and then blow you away with his creations. The rest of the all-male crew are friendly yet super-discrete. The manager is also Oberoi alumni and will organise a slew of activities, including boat excursions, road trips, bike rides and dive tours, to keep everyone amused.
The property is extremely suitable for a family, a group of friends, or – if you can afford it – a couple alone. Having all this beauty to yourself in such a gloriously romantic location will ignite enough sparks for a lifetime.
The only negative thing about The property is the inevitable departure, because guests will want to stay there until the cows come home…and that's no bull!
Set on the white sands of Sira Beach (also spelt Sire) in north west Lombok, The property is pretty remote, but thanks in part to its well-connected neighbours – the Hotel Tugu and The Lombok Golf Kosaido Country Club – it has some real treats up its sleeve. Bordering the garden, the beach is safe for all levels of swimmers, while the rock pools at low tide are great for a splash or a marine biology lesson. Jumping on one of the villa's four bicycles is a fun way to explore the local village of Tanjung, and the five-star Oberoi Lombok Hotel is also just a short drive (4km) away.
