Located on the outskirts of Ubud, this luxury Bali villa is perched high upon a hillside, overlooking a ravine below. You’ll be right in the heart of a tropical wilderness, yet safe in the knowledge that the island’s creative hub of Ubud is just a short drive away. Villa Alamanda epitomizes total peace and tranquility and is the perfect retreat if you’re looking to get away from it all. The four-bedroom property has been carefully designed to fit within its surrounding environment, combining traditional architecture and local materials to create a truly authentic tropical experience.
You’ll have your own professionally trained Bali villa staff who will be on hand to cater throughout your stay, although rest assured they will be quiet and very discreet. A resident chef will prepare breakfast, lunch and dinner and will gladly take orders should you fancy something special, allowing you to relax and be pampered whilst everything is taken care of. The property’s own car and driver will also be on hand in case you wish to explore the rest of the island safely and comfortably.
About the property
After four long years searching for their dream location the property’s owners decided on the lush, tropical setting of Ubud. Upon opening the doors of this Bali villa and walking up the 17-stone stepped pathway we think you’ll understand why. It’s set amongst tall trees and lush, green foliage. And if you arrive in the daytime the first thing you’ll hear is the symphony of tropical sounds, not least from the birds. This luxury Bali villa is situated close to a traditional wood carver’s village so you’ll also get a taste of the island’s history. You’ll see firsthand the routines of local people’s life, including Hindu ceremonies. And you’ll be struck by how happy and content these people are, especially the children.
The Bali villa’s traditional alang-alang thatched roof, timber beams and polished floors compliment its natural setting. An open-sided terrace allows the morning sun to filter through the residence and air-conditioned, en-suite bathrooms provide the perfect respite from the soaring temperatures. Beautifully manicured lawns and gardens are spectacular and the focal point is a 13 x 9 meter curved infinity pool that appears to hang over the ravine. A poolside Balinese balé offers yet another spot to chill out and admire the frangrant frangipanis and heliconias, as well as the bright yellow alamanda, which this luxury Bali is named after.
Although you’ll have the distinct impression that you’re miles from anywhere, Ubud is actually very close by. It’s widely regarded as the creative and craft centre of the island, with an eclectic mix of stunning jewellery shops, art and craft fairs, as well as its café culture. Goa Gajah, the elephant cave, is also near as is the UNESCO rice terraces of Tegallalang.
All four air-conditioned bedrooms feature king-size beds, polished timber flooring, high alang-alang ceilings, sliding glass doors with louvre shutters and beautiful en-suite bathrooms with showers and bathtubs.
The large master suite, or honeymoon suite as it is often referred to in this Bali villa, is furnished with local, Indonesian and artwork by local artists. A large lantern suspended from the ceiling creates the most romantic ambience. And large glass doors open out onto a terrace where you can relax on the daybed and admire those stunning tropical views. A dressing room leads to the master bathroom where you’ll also have the option of a long hot soak in the sunken marble bathtub.
Cinnamon and Red Room
Similar in layout and design, these two rooms differ slightly in terms of furnishings. The red room is characterized by its red lamps and paintings whilst the cinnamon room is scented with a local cinnamon-stick vase arrangement above the bed. Both rooms have a private walled garden bathroom which open out onto large terraces.
A separate pavilion houses the garden suite, which is decorated with Indonesian paintings, tapestries and local art. The suite has a fully enclosed marble bathroom, plus its own private decking area for gazing across the ravine.
This luxury Bali villa is characterized by a delightful T-shaped terrace which stretches the full length of the main house. It’s a beautiful space which features polished wood floors, high ceilings and overhead fans. Two daybeds are ideal for meditating or taking in some favourite tunes.
The dining area actually juts out over the ravine. So from an eight-seat dining table you and your family or close friends will enjoy a truly spectacular dinner in the heart of the tropics. The kitchen is fully equipped and used mainly by the Bali villa’s staff. A fully air-conditioned media room includes a large flat-screen TV with DVD player, games, toys, movies, beanbags and a soft, comfortable sofa.
Sun loungers and umbrellas are available on the Palimanan stone terrace. And a round, outdoor dining table is perfect for a poolside cocktail or snack. The balé is even fitted with its own CD player so be sure to bring some of your favourite tunes. A grassed area with two carved, wooden seats and a traditional Hindu shrine is another perfect setting to meditate or take a private yoga session.
