Villa Surya Damai
Situated in one of the most idyllic and serene parts of Bali, Villa Surya Damai is a beautiful five-bedroom villa, set amongst sloping rice fields, in the village of Umalas. One of most popular Bali luxury villas, the property is a perfect example of traditional Balinese craftsmanship, with open-sided living areas, a vast garden and an 18-metre swimming pool as its centerpiece. And to top it all, you’ll be within a short drive to Seminyak, with its eclectic mix of western and local restaurants, cafes, bars and spas. And only a short drive or walk to the beach.
Villa Surya Damai is perfect for large families or a large group of friends. You’ll be catered for by a professionally trained and discreet group of villa staff, renowned for their warmth and hospitality. Set within 2,750 square meters of riverside gardens with tropical flora, the villas are a series of charming thatched buildings with a traditional Balinese look and feel. Spacious bedrooms, private terraces and en-suite garden bathrooms ensure a truly authentic tropical taste whilst additional features such as a TV room, dining area, tennis courts as well as the pool will keep everyone fully entertained.
There are few Bali luxury villas that still use the traditional thatched (alangalang) roofs. Those that do are exquisite and Surya Damai is no exception. Immaculate landscaped gardens with the 18-metre pool and open-sided pavilions, stepping stone paths, verandas and those tennis courts are just some of the treats available upon your arrival to the Island of the Gods.
Due in large part to a family-friendly configuration, Surya Damai’s five air-conditioned rooms can accommodate 14 guests. All rooms are simple yet tastefully decorated and furnished. Beds include King Coil mattresses and the finest quality linens. Rooms are individually colour-coded and feature attractive rugs, cushions and thick curtains. Bathrooms have terrazzo stone flooring and tropical gardens with high walls.
The master features a king size four-poster bed. You’ll enter the room via a veranda with wood flooring. Large carved wall decorations are at one end of the room. And large timber doors open to reveal an open-air garden bathroom with ceramic bath.
Sliding glass doors lead you into an air-conditioned sitting area with TV, DVD player and surround sound system, as well as a sofa and small library. A second veranda features a daybed and the ideal spot for a relaxing massage.
Principal guest suite
This room is set towards the rear of the building and looks out to the delightful gardens. Another veranda, furnished with daybed and rattan seating, provides the entry point. And a king size four-poster bed features a Javanese carved wood frame. A garden bathroom is fitted with a sunken bath and open-air rain shower.
Guest bedrooms three and four
These more modern twin-bedded rooms are situated on the ground floor. They are perfect for the children. Accessed via sliding glass doors both have colour-coordinated furnishings, low ceilings and terrazzo stone floors. Under twin beds are neat trundle beds, providing up to 4 places in each.
Guest bedroom five
An open staircase leads to a bright and breezy balcony and bedroom number five. Slightly more Asian in style, this room enjoys spectacular views across the rice fields. The lucky guest will have a Queen size four-poster bed plus a wooden wardrobe and writing desk. Old wooden doors lead to this Bali luxury villa’s only indoor bathroom.
The living pavilion, the heart and soul of the property, looks out over the pool, gardens and rice fields beyond from soft comfortable sofas and a daybed. A TV is hidden within a wooden cabinet along with a DVD player and Bose music system. Although a very luxurious and chic setting, this area is very homely and features candles, fresh orchids and artefacts.
Dining and kitchen
The dining area, encased by folding glass doors projects a more formal atmosphere. A dining table is carved from a single block of old teak wood and is surrounded by 12 tall-backed cream chairs. A water feature runs to the side of the room. And ceiling fans keep the room comfortably chilled.
Adjoining bedroom five is the TV lounge. The room is open on three sides so it’s a breezy and cool environment to catch a favourite DVD whilst lazing in the L-shaped sofa or large floor cushions.
Gardens and pool
This luxury Bali villa rental has been meticulously planned, especially with regards to the layout of the gardens. Lawns are edged with tropical foliage and trees and are criss-crossed by a stone pathway. The pool is bordered on one side by grass and stone decking and sun loungers. And the lawn slopes gradually to a 60-metre river frontage. Dusk and sundown is a particularly magical time in Bali. And this luxury Bali villa is no exception. Illuminated Balinese lanterns and beacons light up certain corners of the garden. And the teak poolside table will provide the perfect spot to enjoy the odd cocktail or two under the stars.
