Picture this: You’ve finally made it to your Bali holiday. The sun is shining and you hear the siren call of poolside cocktails. But here’s the kick: the traffic is rampant. You hit red light after red light and there’s nothing for you to do besides watch the moments slip by. By the time you actually get to the pool bar of your wildest Bali dreams, all the tables are taken and the pool is packed.
Hardly ideal, right?
Well, what if we told you that you can find stylish, tranquil accommodation right in the heart of the action? Accommodation that means you can come and go between Bali’s best beach clubs without wasting a single moment being stuck in traffic?
Folks, we give you Akara Villas 3.
Perfect Location in Petitenget
Akara Villas M sits in a tranquil lane just off Jalan Petitenget, right next to Seminyak. This sprawling street is home to many of Bali’s most sought-after venues and the villa sits in the heart of the action. You can reach both Potato Head Beach Club and the W Resort in five minutes on foot. Petitenget Beach is 700 metres away. If you need even more dining options, Seminyak’s Eat Street is a 10-minute walk from the villa. It’s super easy to get out and about, as the villa is serviced by a free shuttle service in the Seminyak area.
It’s safe to say that location wise, Akara Villas 3 has it going on, big time. But what of the villa itself? Let’s take a peek inside.
Room for Your Crew
Akara Villas 3 has four bedrooms which can sleep up to eight adults and two children. If you’re travelling with a larger group, no problem! Akara Villa 3 sits in the same complex with Akara Villas M, Akara Villas 1 and Akara Villas 8. If you book just one villa, you’re guaranteed absolute privacy, as each villa is surrounded by high protective walls. But if you need more rooms, it’s good to know there are plenty of options in the same fabulous address.
Now, back to the star of the show. Akara Villas 3’s master bedroom is located upstairs, so there’s a bit of added privacy. The room has a king-sized canopy bed and gives access to a private balcony. This is the perfect spot for enjoying your morning coffee, courtesy of the villa’s fire engine red Saeco coffee maker. The master bathroom has a bathtub and a separate shower – taking a shower here really feels like visiting a Balinese spa!
The three guest bedrooms sit on the villa’s ground floor, meaning you have direct access to the pool! You can also relax in the shaded bale or catch some rays on the sundeck. Two rooms have king-sized beds and one room features two twins, so this is a great option for kids or adults who don’t want to share a bed. All rooms have an ensuite bathroom with a rainfall shower and two bathrooms feature a bathtub to boot.
At Ministry of Villas, we believe it’s the little things that makes staying in a villa so special. On this front, too, Akara Villas 3 is bang on the money. Purna and his team are endlessly gracious and offer just the right mix of service and privacy. When you need something, there’s always someone to turn to, but you never feel like there’s somebody hovering over you. Besides housekeeping, the villa offers butler service and the staff can arrange take out from the nearby restaurants.The villa is also has 24-hour security, so you can relax with a piece of mind.
And really, it’s all in the details: even the magazines artfully fanned out on the living room coffee table are all latest issues of international publications – not a dog-eared inflight freebie in sight.
