With a fabulous location right in the heart of Seminyak, this stylish 5-bedroom villa offers a luxurious, tropical space ideal for family and friends wanting instant access to all the action of Bali’s cosmopolitan hub. An easy walk brings you to the buzzing district known as ‘Eat Street’, home to a plethora of world-class restaurants bars, and designer boutiques. Fabled Oberoi Beach, with its legendary surf breaks and golden sand is less than a kilometre from the villa.
A unique design showcases traditional Indonesian aesthetics, with the adoption of Javanese joglos (traditional wooden houses) intricately carved from honey-hued teak. Contemporary western touches include floor to ceiling glass windows that allow natural light to stream through, enhancing the rich detail of these beautiful, century-old buildings. The owner is an artist and jewellery designer, and some of her unique creations are on display at Shambala, and available for purchase.
The single story property includes a main building with two bedrooms, and a separate guest house with three bedrooms, set at either end of a majestic 20m swimming pool lined with stately palms and manicured lawns. A poolside spa pavilion sets the scene for traditional massage, and specialised Ayurvedic treatments by skilled therapists. Stone statues, tropical foliage and atmospheric garden bathrooms throughout the villa further evoke the spirit of the enchanted isles of Indonesia.
A stunning, customised kitchen makes a convivial gathering place, with a cutting edge design incorporating an extensive breakfast counter, stylish fittings and every imaginable gadget one could possibly need to cook up a banquet of the highest order. However, with a talented in-house cook most guests are content to be spoiled with gourmet meals prepared from an enticing suggestion menu. Equally, a full contingent of housekeepers, waiting staff, gardeners and security staff provide a welcoming, efficient and unobtrusive service.
