Welcome to one of the most sought after addresses in Bali. Located right in the heart of Seminyak, minutes away from the famous Kudeta and La Luciola beach restaurant. A short stroll to all the fabulous shops, restaurants and trendy bars, Villa Istimewa is set well off the main road in a luscious secluded garden.
The owners, both strongly involved in the conception and design of this newly finished haven, placed a great focus on noble material such as hard wood, marble, palimanan and lava stone.
Water plays a very important part in creating the extraordinary ambiance of villa Istimewa. The incredible sunken living room with an aquarium like window into the depth of the pool blesses the house with a great feel of modernity and space. And when night comes movies can be projected on the wall-sized screen, sliding doors shut and AC turned on.
The Pool is one of the most beautiful ever seen. One might be tempted to spend a great part of the stay immersed in the water of this turquoise colored lagoon: Large enough for laps with great shallow areas to relax.
The Spa is another amazing feature of Villa Istimewa; Recluse from the main part of the house, surrounded by fountains and lava stone carved walls it is fitted with Sauna, Jacuzzi, Cold Water Plunge pool, and a massage and fitness area. This is the most exclusive setting for the ultimate pampering.
All four cozy air-conditioned bedrooms, three on the first floor of the main building and one on the far side of the pool, are charmingly appointed and individually designed with wooden flooring, mosquito netting and beautiful paintings. Each room has its own private terrace and stunning views over gardens, spa and pool:
The Coconut Bedroom, as its name suggests, is surrounded by towering coconut palms. A cozy king-size bed, views to the pool and the surrounding flora make this a truly romantic room. Open up the sliding doors to the wrap around balcony for an ideal breakfast location. There is an ensuite bathroom with a modern super sized showerhead contrasting with an antique wooden washbasin, a fabulous mix of the old with the new.
The Treetop Bedroom, opening to a private wooden terrace with a great panorama over the neighborhood and the spa feels exactly like being in a tree house although with all the home comforts thrown in: A king size bed, and an ensuite bathroom with bathtub opening up to the splendid garden.
The Temple Bedroom looks out onto the Balinese temple.
Beautiful flower offerings brought to the temple are wonderful reminders of the ever-present spirituality involved in day-to-day life here in Bali. This bedroom features a queen size bed and opens up to the 50sqm. wooden terrace allowing views onto the pool and surrounding gardens. The perfect spot to sip a cocktail admiring the changing pastel colors of the sky at the end of the day.
The Lotus Bungalow is a separate building on the far side of the pool that can be used either as a bedroom or as a multi media room as it features a king sized bed and an ensuite bathroom but is as well fully equipped with satellite TV, DVD and internet access.
