Those seeking a chic, centre-of-the-action yet peaceful location for their Bali vacation will find the fully staffed Villa Windu Sari has lots to offer. Newly renovated in 2021, this spacious, five-bedroom villa is securely set down a quiet cul-de-sac in a private community of villas in Petitenget, less than a kilometre from the beach, within walking distance of some of Bali’s best restaurants and bars, and a short taxi -ride from Seminyak.
The focus of this handsome tropical home is the 14-metre pool – framed by a pair of two-storey pavilions arranged in an L shape, with a third side taken up by the sun -deck and relaxing poolside balé. But the hub is the open-plan living room – a huge fan-cooled space leading directly to the pool terrace, where guests can settle into comfortable sofas set around a marble table or congregate at the enormous teakwood dining table that seats 12. Behind (but out of sight), you will find the gleaming, modern kitchen where the villa chef concocts mouthwatering meals and snacks, served by the butlers who between them provide attentive 24-hour service.
When the pull of socialising pales, there are lots of places to retreat to. How about a work-out in the well-equipped gym? A massage at the poolside balé or an afternoon siesta on the bedroom balcony? Four of the bedrooms occupy a separate pavilion and open either onto balconies or directly onto the pool terrace.
Let’s give the last word on Villa Windu Sari to a guest who said on his departure: “To spend quality time with one’s family is priceless. To spend it in these surroundings and company is a distinct privilege”.
