Villa Bali Bali’s striking design – featured in must-have coffee table book Bali Living – assures its fame as one of the most distinctive and recognisable villas in Bali. The estate richly deserves its ‘double Bali’ name, as it seamlessly blends the very best of contemporary and traditional Bali design influences to create a truly unique trio of residences.
Villa Bali Bali is distinguished by dramatic overlapping roofs of ironwood shingle that are diagonally pitched to skim the ground and carve angled living spaces which appear cavernous and yet intimate in the same breath. The interiors draw on the island’s wealth of natural materials: walls of Palimanan and lava stone; teakwood, Benkirai and varnished pebble floors; ceilings lined with rattan reeds and customised furniture crafted from wood, coconut shell and huge slabs of stone. Indonesia’s cultural heritage finds expression here too with a stunning collection of statues, panels, textiles and artefacts sourced from across Indonesia’s eastern archipelago.
Three individual residences make up the Villa Bali Bali, each set in beautiful landscaped gardens with open living spaces and private pool: the three-bedroom Villa Bali Bali One, two-bedroom Bali Bali Two and 2 (+1) bedroom Bali Bali Cottage – which can only be booked in conjunction with either of the others. A team of 15 staff is on hand to ensure guests are happily cosseted and cared for. And for those who want to break away from the serenity of the estate, the bright lights of Seminyak with its boutiques, bars, restaurants and surf breaks are just a few kilometres to the south.
