The Beach House Seminyak Bali Beachfront Villas - Seminyak - Price range: US$ 1000 >
The Beach House is a fresh, absolutely-beachfront Bali rental villa, located on the sweeping Seminyak Beach and blessed with magnificent unobstructed views of the Indian Ocean. The revolutionary contemporary design is a study in perfect symmetry, presenting Palimanan stone walls, teakwood panelling, a crisp white decor, and massive floor-to-rooftop sliding glass doors to maximise the panoramic vista.
Accommodation and facilities include four air-conditioned master bedrooms, complete with audio and visual facilities and ensuite bathrooms, an open-plan living and dining area, a study, and a fully-equipped kitchen. This glamorous holiday villa in Bali is complemented by a flat beachside lawn with a 15-metre swimming pool, and poolside bale'-style relaxation pavilion that incorporates an extensive bar.
Three of the four ensuite bathrooms are open to the sky, while each bedroom boasts sliding glass doors opening onto a private balcony or terrace. Each luxurious king-size bed at The Beach House is oriented towards the beach ensuring that guests will be lulled to sleep by the tranquil rhythm of the breaking waves.
The Beach House presents four master suites of equal importance, each furnished with luxurious built-in king size beds oriented towards the beach, and each boasting an indoor/outdoor bathroom. The white theme is complemented by white bedside lamps, built in cupboards, an ottoman and a floor rug, and each bedroom is equipped with air-conditioning, a satellite-channel TV and DVD player, safe deposit boxes, and a desk located behind the bed. Sliding glass doors open onto a Palimanan stone balcony or, in the case of the two ground floor bedrooms, onto a spacious terrace, each balcony or terrace is furnished with daybeds, affording spectacular coastline views stretching all the way down to Uluwatu on the Island's southern tip. Guests will be lulled to sleep every night by the rhythmic sound of the waves.
Each ensuite bathroom boasts its own individual characteristics. Each is accessed via sliding glass doors and each is fashioned in cream terrazzo or creamy-white Palimanan with a wall-length vanity unit, crafted in rough tumble marble, complete with wall mirrors and twin washbasins. Each is fitted with a rainshower, a bathtub and toilet. One of the upstairs bathrooms features a romantic open rooftop setting for bathing under the stars in a huge oval terrazzo tub shielded by bulrushes. The other upstairs bathroom presents an indoor bathtub positioned next to sliding glass windows that can be fully opened to create a semi-open air experience. Both of the downstairs bathrooms are set within small walled gardens, complete with towering palm trees. One offers a bathtub positioned at a lower level, sheltered by a roof and surrounded by timber decking with a rainshower above the tub; the other has a feature tub and a rainshower open to the sky.
The living room is located at the front of the house to maximise the ocean view. This splendid inner atrium is flooded with natural light, creating the illusion of the exterior being part of the interior. It extends the full height of the building with a massive cathedral window in the form of floor-to-roof sliding glass doors that can be fully opened for semi al fresco tropical living, or closed for cosy air-conditioned comfort. The room is furnished with a deeply cushioned L-shaped sofa and ottoman, a chair and footstool, a shag pile rug, a glass topped coffee table, standard lamps and a long sideboard, while colourful artwork adorns the walls. Facing west, this room indulges guests with an armchair view of Bali's legendary sunsets.
A small step leads up from the living area into the open-plan, air-conditioned dining room, which is furnished with a grand dining table with twelve upholstered chairs. Hi-tech amenities include a surround sound system and a computer corner complete with WiFi internet access. To one side of the dining area is a bar with marble work surfaces and a white service counter. There is also a guest washroom and shower on the ground floor.
An immaculate white kitchen with stainless steel appliances is tucked away behind the bar, conveniently close to the dining area.
A terrazzo floating staircase leads up to a U-shaped timber clad mezzanine reminiscent of a gallery, extending around three sides of the atrium, with a study room positioned in the centre. This cosy air-conditioned room is furnished with segmented sofas, an ottoman, a shag pile rug, a set of three occasional tables, a lazy chair, standard lamps and a 51" satellite-channel TV/DVD player.
The poolside relaxation 'bale' is an open-sided pavilion with a built in daybed and a bar with a sliding door. Cooled by sea breezes and a ceiling fan, this is a wonderful spot to chill out to the sound of the ocean and enjoy late afternoon cocktails with daily front row seats for Bali's breathtaking sunsets.
Pool & Garden
The neat, flat garden literally spills out onto the beach unbroken by borders and fences, yet well protected by the villa's security team. The flat lawn is punctuated with three towering coconut palms and two fragrant frangipani trees. The enticing 15 x 5 metre, infinity-edge swimming pool is lined with rustic Java stone and bordered by a timber deck.
As its name suggests The Beach House is located absolutely beach front on Petitenget Beach on Bali's glorious southwestern coast, with a panoramic vista that stretches all the way down to Uluwatu on the Island's southern tip.
This enviable location is not only metres away from the rolling surf of the Indian Ocean but also mere minutes away from a wide choice of internationally acclaimed restaurants, including the famous Ku De Ta, La Lucciola, Living Room Hu'u Bar and Sarong. It is also within walking distance of a varied collection of chic designer boutiques.
This is the area that is now considered to be the Seminyak 'Prime District' - a safe, upmarket neighbourhood that is home to some of the classiest properties on the island. It is close to the well-known Oberoi and Legian Hotels, 25 minutes' drive from the airport, and convenient for all of Bali's main shops, shopping malls, tourist attractions and vibrant nightspots. The sweeping beach on the doorstep of The Beach House is renowned for its world-class surf breaks, panoramic coastline views and picture-perfect sunsets. Easily accessible sporting amenities include a choice of superb championship golf courses, tennis, horseback riding, dive schools, sailing cruises and much more.
The location of The Beach House offers easy access up to the mountains and rice terraces on the western slopes; it is 80 minutes from the famous cultural and artistic town of Ubud, and just five minutes' from the start of the Sunset Route, gateway to the eastern side of the island.
