Villa San is a 5-star luxury Bali villa, located in Ubud, away from the hustle and bustle of the more popular tourist districts. The property is actually only 300-meters away from Ubud’s Royal Palace and a stone’s throw from the center of what is widelyregarded as Bali’s arts and craft hub, with it’s vast array of jewellery shops, fashion boutiques and cafes and restaurants. If seclusion, privacy and serenity are what you’re after then Villa San really is one of the most suitable Bali luxury villas on the island. You’ll be surrounded by age-old rice terraces and witness to local farmers tending their crops whilst classical fire dance performances can be admired at the village hall.
Villa San offers a total of 6-bedrooms, three double and three twin suites, and can easily accommodate 12 guests. So it’s perfect for large families or several families staying together or a group of close friends. Collections of artwork and handicrafts from China, Africa and Indonesia feature prominently throughout the buildings and you’ll get a distinct feeling that the villa has been created with a keen eye for detail.
Warm, friendly staff will quickly make you feel at home and cater to any requests during your stay but rest assured, they will remain quiet and discreet throughout. They can also advise on what local attractions there are, as well as arrange in-house cooking classes, meditation and yoga sessions. And they will of course suggest the best restaurants, cafes or even spas.
You’ll also have the luxury of a 25-meter private lap pool, set within lush, tropical gardens, dotted with elegant stone sculptures, as well as a tranquil meditation platform and terrace. Relaxation areas are a plenty and even if you come with a larger group, the sheer size of the property and expanse of the gardens provide ample spots to sample some quiet time.
The owner’s affections are reflected in various parts of the property with a loft having been converted to a painting studio, a telescope if you fancy some star gazing from the rooftop terrace and a private decking area, ideal for yoga or meditation. Hammocks and sun loungers have been arranged around the pool, with a pool pavilion area seating up to 15 guests. Not one but two entertainment rooms will certainly keep the kids occupied. One is part of the master suite whilst the other, a gym and playroom, is adjacent to the dining room. Within each bedroom suite you’ll have French doors that open to reveal those wonderful tropical gardens and rolling lawns with the focal point being the enormous pool.
This luxury Bali villa rental features six large bedroom suites with each bed covered with fine white linen and plump pillows. Hand crafted bed runners from Africa add a delightful finishing touch. Each room has a ceiling fan, air-conditioning, iPod docking for those favourite tunes, a desk, bedside tables and reading lamps.
The master suite actually has two bedrooms, one with a king-size bed and the other with a twin bed. These are separated by a comfortable family suite with sofas and a fabulous state-of-the-art home entertainment system. En-suite bathrooms are accessed via large dressing rooms with vast mirrors, reflecting the light coming in from the gardens outside.
Two queen-size bedrooms and two twin-bedrooms are housed in separate pavilions, away from the principal building. Each features its own en-suite bathroom with large bathtubs and rain showers. Two additional beds are available for the children. And these four bedroom suites can easily accommodate 8 guests comfortably.
Living, dining and entertainment areas
The entertainment areas are a real highlight of Villa San. No expense has been sparred in providing the absolute best in home theatre systems. You’ll have a large flat screen TV, a DVD player and stereo system and an enormous sofa to enjoy a good movie or simply admire the garden through floor-to-ceiling windows. A few short steps from the entertainment area is a fully equipped modern gym and off to the right is a casual dining area, the kid’s playroom and those fabulous gardens and swimming pool.
Most food preparation, either for breakfast, lunch or dinner, is carried out in the staff kitchen, behind the scenes, but your resident villa chef will be more than happy to let you indulge in your own culinary creations. Spanish-style crockery, a full range of appliances and a large wine chiller all ensure you and your guests have everything you need, whilst a solid timber breakfast bar provides a very informal area to chat and sample the chef’s delights, whilst a more formal wood dining table seats up to 14 guests. A spiral staircase leads to the artist’s studio where you’ll have complete privacy to hideaway and the adjacent rooftop terrace is perfect for scanning those night skies with a powerful telescope.
You’ll be spoilt for choice for chilling out, with loungers, hammocks and casual seating areas dotted throughout the gardens. A fabulous gazebo also seats up to 15 guests at the far end of the pool. The 25 x 5-meter pool is perfect for doing laps whilst steps at one end and a shallow area ensure it’s also ideal for the children. Hidden away in one corner is a shaded terrace area for yoga and this area is actually suitable for up to 15 guests. Another separate building, know as a stupa or Buddhist meditation room, provides the ideal serenity for a meditation.
