Welcome to the Villa Hibiscus, a one-of-a-kind, a romantically rustic, three-bedroom fantasyland holiday residence offering the authenticity and charm of Balinese design and hospitality with all the mod cons one would expect in a modern villa, and just a five-minute stroll from the calm waters of Merta Sari Beach in Sanur on Bali's southeast shore.
Characterised by thatched roofs, antique furnishings and vast, semi-open-air living areas and a private 18 metre swimming pool, the villa is blessed with sprawling landscaped gardens filled with fishponds and fountains, tropical flowers and tall trees that attract butterflies, dragonflies and beautiful birds, creating a magical holiday environment.
Set on a sprawling 3,500 square metres of landscaped gardens, the main building is a classical Balinese-style semi-open plan house with a spacious downstairs living, dining and bar area, three en-suite bedrooms, as well as a wonderful TV lounge in the mezzanine floor. The main house has a wide, tiled terrace that runs the full length of the house linking the three bedrooms to the main living area, while a courtyard in the rear features a tranquil and mesmerising fountain. An adjacent single-storey pavilion houses the kitchen and a dining room.
Dominating the garden, the swimming pool is surrounded by sun loungers, a bale bengong relaxation pavilion and a Madurese daybed. Hidden in the garden, next to the vine-draped pergola leading to the main bedroom is an antique lumbung, or rice granary, with cushioned seating, a perfect shady spot to curl up with a cup of tea and a good book.
With all its beauty, space and service, and within easy walking distance of a safe swimming beach and many shops and restaurants, Villa Hibiscus is an ideal getaway for groups of friends seeking the quiet life, and especially good for families as kids will have the time of their lives letting spirits and imaginations run wild.
