Full of character and charm, the distinctively shaped living and dining room is the hub of the villa. This warm, cocooning space is enriched with teak floors, comfortable sofas and fascinating tribal artefacts curated from Indonesia’s eastern islands. Behind a long coconut-shell buffet, a light-filled glass-roofed dining area furnished with a table for four extends into the garden.
In the living area, L-shaped seating and ottomans are well placed to enjoy views of the garden beyond the angled roof, which dives to within inches of a lotus pond. Suspended above, the mezzanine provides a cosy area to watch a film or escape with a book.
Outside in the garden a path meanders across the lawn to the triangular swimming pool where sun loungers upon a Benkirai-wood deck invite indolence. And over by a hedge of bougainvillea and palm, which separates the garden from the rice terraces beyond, a traditional balé provides a quiet, private space for reflection and relaxation.
