Cascading waterfalls flanked by a row of coconut palms mark the entry to the 4,200 square feet villa. A great room of striking design features travertine marble flooring, 30' vaulted ceilings, and walls of patterned Asian pearl-stone tiles. Stunning ocean views fill the entire great room, which expands through pocket sliders to the large pool terrace overlooking the Caribbean sea. A concealed granite bar with icemaker, fridge, 2 wine coolers, and hydraulically raised 50" plasma TV and music center set the stage for a place of luxurious indulgence.
The master bedroom wing sets a new standard of luxurious indulgence - adjoining the swimming pool, you may step or plunge directly into the pool for a morning or late night swim; or breakfast in bed enjoying the ocean view from 90-degree glass doors. The suite includes a raised bath tub with waterfall showerhead and separate shower alcove. Double vanity with vessel copper sinks, separate WC, walk-in closet lined with custom mahogany shelving, completing the arrangement. A private terrace offers a carved Indonesian daybed to recline and bask in the scenic surroundings and southeastern breezes.
Two guest ensuite bedrooms occupy the opposite wing, each with ocean views and glass doors giving access to poolside. Each room has a private balcony furnished with hand-crafted Balinese daybeds.
A state-of-the art kitchen is outfitted with Viking appliance, 6-burner stove, black granite countertops and center island counter with stools for informal dining. A dining area provides formal seating for six.
Furnished with impeccable taste and style in a mixture of imported Balinese hand-made contemporary and antique pieces, ornamentals and artwork, the villa is replete with custom design elements of innovation and functionality.
The stunning centerpiece of the Villa is its angled infinity pool constructed in emerald green stone with arched pool bridge at one end; spanning the breadth of the house, it connects with an infinity edge heated Jacuzzi, both cascading pools forming a magnificent visual flow to the ocean below.
Enjoy both the ocean and privacy like nowhere else right in your own backyard. A beautiful limestone walkway leads right down from Balinese to a platform -- great for sunbathing -- from which you simply walk down a concrete staircase into 2 feet of sparking clear water with a soft foot-friendly sandy bottom. The water remains shallow for quite a fair distance out, so much so, you will feel like you own the ocean and have it all to yourself (and actually you will during this magic week spent in Balinese!).
My husband and I spent a week at Villa Balinese and it was the most romantic experience. The breathtaking views and the luxury of the home just blew us away. Our stresses just melted away and we were finally in paradise. So recommended, we will make it a yearly tradition. The most difficult part was leaving! Coming back as soon as possible..
