Designed by a renowned Italian architect, Villa Bulan personifies luxury and elegance. The villa has five bedrooms that sleep up to ten people, so its ideal for a big family getaway or a group of friends. A grey colour scheme runs through the villa with pops of colour that bounces beautifully off the neutrals. Natural stone including grey marble features heavily in the interior, accessorized with fine art objects.
The edgy, fully-equipped kitchen has a large bar where you can perch on sleek bar stools and plenty of room for preparing meals. Instead of cupboards, theres an eye-catching open shelf display and large painted bowls on display. Dine together around the large glass table in the open plan dining area, or eat alfresco on the terrace. Decorative pendant lighting hangs from the ceiling, which adds depth to the room.
The bedrooms each feature a piece of contemporary art on the walls and a luxurious bed to sink into at the end of the day, with crisp sheets and a plush headboard. Carved wooden bedside tables adorn each bed and add a flourish of luxury. The master bedroom has plenty of space with a beautiful patterned rug on the wooden floor.
Floor to ceiling doors and windows ensure the rooms are bathed in light - enjoy the novelty of being able to step straight out of the property to the pool. There are curtains you can pull across for when you want privacy.
Theres a truly stunning ensuite bathroom in each bedroom - soak in the grey marble tub while gazing out at the plants by the window. In one bathroom an especially nice feature is a swirly carved wall panel. Huge mirrors open up the room and ensure everyone has room to get ready. A large plant helps to bring off some of the lush greenery inside. You can tell that every detail has been carefully designed to create a peaceful yet modern haven.
Outside, take in the view of rolling green countryside while enjoying a refreshing dip in the shimmering 14 meters swimming pool. With plenty of space for everyone to swim and play, its perfectly suited to a larger group. Sunbeds overlook the pool with an umbrella for shade if it gets too tropical! Inspired by Balinese culture and spirituality, statues of the Buddha have been scattered through the villa.
