Close your eyes, imagine the sound of waves crashing on the shoreline, the scent of frangipani and salt water in the air. In front of you is the ocean for as far as the eye can see, as you lay on the pool lounger cocktail in hand. Behind you, Balinese style pavilions, surrounded by coconut palms. This is your home away from home as you explore the lust-worthy holiday destination of Bali.
This paradise, all of which is set on an acre of beachfront land, was designed by internationally-renowned and award-winning architect and designer Bill Bensley and top Balinese architect, Popo Danes. The estate takes inspiration from traditional Balinese design and combines this with simplicity and elegance.
The estate is comprised of five en-suite bedrooms, a pavilion with the living room, a pavilion with the dining room and because this is all about relaxing in luxury, a pavilion with a massage area. This is surrounded by lush gardens, an infinity pool, a heated Jacuzzi and the ocean right on your doorstep.
Your every need has been predicted with a library full of books, movies, music and games, complimentary wireless internet, satellite television and a full staff, comprised of a manager, cook, butler, housekeepers, gardener, maintenance and security guards, should any need be left unmet.
The estate can accommodate ten guests, with each of the bedroom pavilions offering large, four-poster beds, floor to ceiling windows and doors and cosy spots to nestle up and read or relax. You may never want to leave your room!
The living and kitchen pavilions are all within a short walk from the bedroom pavilions, not too close, not too far – just right. They offer plenty of space for all members of the group to relax together, whether enjoying a meal boasting fresh, local cuisine or watching one of the provided movies. All under sky-high ceilings that let in the natural sea breeze. There is also an outdoor dining table, overlooking the pool and the ocean where most meals are likely to be enjoyed.
Last, but not least, the pavilion that houses the massage facilities. With two beautiful massage beds and an outdoor shower, youll need to line up for this one. Spa and massage services are arranged upon request.
Its hard to look past the infinity pool, which is both large, inviting and surrounded by sun-chairs should you fancy some sunbathing.
This place is like some sort of paradise.?
