Makasih is short for ‘terima kasih’ which means’ thank you’ in the Indonesian language and surely, you will be feeling thankful when having this beautiful tropical luxury villa in the midst of fashionable Seminyak as your private home away from home this holiday to Bali Island. Villa Makasih is a charming 2-bedroom villa that steals the heart of each and everyone. Guests will enter the villa in the villa’s sprawling tropical garden, featuring high white walls and lush tropical greenery growing on the side of the glistening private swimming pool. You can dive straight into the refreshing water of the swimming pool or seek air-conditioned comfort inside, in the living room.
The garden also features a timber deck furnished with a Balinese daybed and a sun lounger for those wanting to sunbathe. On the other side of the pool, stands another antique daybed, but this one is shaded by an ‘alang alang’ thatched rooftop like a cabana-style gazebo - the perfect spot to snooze, read a book and chill out with a cocktail in hand.
The living room is compact, cozy, cool and soaked in natural sunlight. The pavilion features a traditional high soaring rattan ceiling and full-length glass doors that fold back to the sides to create a tropical open-plan living space. When the heat gets too much for you, close the doors, put on the AC and go lounge on the sofa to watch a movie on the flat-screen TV that is mounted to the wall. A big wooden-framed mirror reflects the greenery of the garden in the daytime whilst in the evening, the living room is illuminated beautifully by a big rattan designers lamp that hangs above the timber picnic-style dining table. The kitchen features hand-painted tiles on the floor and to the walls, giving it a unique look. The kitchen is spacious and it is more than well equipped with everything needed and more including a large fridge with a separate freezer, a toaster, coffee machine and a 2-pit stove.
The two bedroom suites are located side by side next to the timber deck that flanks the swimming pool. Upon drawing the curtains in the morning and opening up the glass sliding doors, you can go relax on the daybed to soak up the gentle warming morning sun or you can dive straight into the swimming pool even before coffee is served. Both bedrooms are fully air-conditioned and they feature warm wooden interiors enriched by traditional tribal artwork from the Indonesian archipelago. The king-size beds are tucked in fresh white linen and there are writing desk to surf the complimentary wifi on your laptop. Each bedroom comes with a safe and the en-suite bathrooms feature washbasins crafted out of natural stone and luxurious rain showers. Tropical plants and orchid flowers add a tropical touch to your showering experience. Bathroom guest amenities are catered for.
