Villa Ylang Ylang
Nestled between tall coconut trees and a deserted beach, this luxury Bali villa is an outstanding six-bedroom property. It sits within the quiet costal village of Saba, in Bali’s Gianyar Regency, over looking the Indian Ocean on the southeastern side of the island. You’ll be approximately 30km from Bali’s main airport, 15km from Sanur and around 15km to Ubud.
Hidden amongst one of Bali’s most beautiful natural landscapes, you’ll have the added bonus of spectacular views of coconut groves and stretches of emerald rice paddy fields, not forgetting that secluded beachfront setting, which many guests, including celebrities, have enjoyed. This contemporary Asian Bali villa oozes 5-star luxury. Its interiors reveal an exquisite taste and a careful eye for detail. And upon entering its grounds you’ll grasp the sheer splendor and size of this magical residence, with its 15-meter private pool and yoga retreat. It really is the ideal setting for a calm, serene and truly perfect vacation.
Within the confines of your private villa you’ll have a gym, a sauna, as well as a state of the art home theatre room. A fully equipped kitchen, intimate spaces and manicured gardens ensure relaxation is taken to a different level. And fully trained staff will cater discreetly to your every need. Created in 2002 by its owner, the Bali luxury villa displays touches of European flavours. Furnishings have the finest imported fabrics and even the pool towels have a distinct Chanel feel about them.
YlangYlang is much more than just a beachfront villa. Its name is derived from the YlangYlang Balinese flower, a reflection of harmony, peace and warmth. And with the property’s secluded spaces being the perfect spots for yoga sessions and spa treatments, you, your family or close friends will enjoy a truly magical retreat.
Upon entering this luxury Bali villa you’ll notice the statues and cascading water features. A hidden courtyard with two pools leads to the main two-storey open-plan and open-sided living and dining pavilion, with a meditation, yoga and spa deck above. The theatre room is also housed here. Manicured lawns and landscaped gardens surround a 15-metre swimming pool with stone decking, which is flanked by single-story wings, housing six bedroom suites. Two traditional Balinese bales also provide the perfect spot to catch up on a good book or shelter from those soaring temperatures.
Living and dining
The main pavilion is the heart of this Bali villa rental property with its impressive 11-metre-high atrium supported by cream-hued colonnades. Predominantly open-sided, you’ll see enormous floor-to-ceiling timber-framed doors, silk curtains and long bamboo blinds. The pavilion itself is cooled by refreshing sea breezes and large ceiling fans. Floor cushions, a daybed and comfortable sofas with rich fabrics furnish this vast area. A formal dining area is dominated by a lacquered wooden table, able to accommodate 14 people, and separated by closed doors is the fully equipped kitchen.
Two luxurious master suites face each other across the pool. Similar in style and décor, both are furnished with a king size four-poster bed, vanity area and upholstered couch. Both suites feature sunken bathtubs, walk-in rain showers and his and hers washbasins with modern glass sculptures contrasting with traditional Balinese features. Both rooms also have satellite TV and DVD players.
Adjacent to the master suites are two Queen rooms. Both feature Queen-size four-poster beds. Timber and glass doors lead to chic en-suite bathrooms with sunken baths that also double as showers.
Accessible through sliding doors from both Queen rooms are the junior rooms. Each is furnished with twin beds, ideal for children, and in clear view of the main pavilion and master suites. Both rooms have en-suites. Interiors in all rooms follow the décor and style of the master suites and bathrooms are bright and sunny, courtesy of a sloping glass roof, decorated with rattan. Outside, intimate patio areas are decked with white pebbles, black tiles and tropical plants. Glass standing candleholders and a black reclining loungerfill this space.
The fully air-conditioned theatre room is located at the opposite end of the living and dining room. Here, you’ll have a host of satellite channels and hundreds of DVD’s to choose from and watch on an extensive wall screen. A black sofa is large enough for the entire family and there’s a well-stocked library of books as well as a computer and printer.
Two staircases at opposite ends of the main pavilion lead up to a timber mezzanine-style area that overlooks the living and dining area and which contains two dining tables as well as a daybed. An additional rooftop decking area here reveals spectacular views of the ocean by day and some wonderful star gazing at night. You’ll also be tempted to indulge in some personal time up here with a spa or massage.
Garden, Pool and Bale
The 15-metre swimming pool is the central feature on these perfect landscaped gardens. Adorned by ornamental water features, the pool is surrounded by a stone decking area upon which are placed rattan, cushioned sunbeds. Those manicured lawns stretch all the way down to the tidal area, sands and crashing surf. And beside the river is another timber sundeck, complete with sun loungers and uninterrupted views across the beach.
