Villa Des Indes 1 Living
Villa Des Indes 1 is a treasure trove of fine antiques and fascinating curious sourced from across the Indonesian archipelago. The main living pavilion is housed beneath an open-plan Joglo-style pavilion which was imported from Java and reconstructed on-site following traditional methods without the use of a single nail. The pavilion is shaded by a leafy garden with a shimmering lagoon pool inviting guests in at the heart of it. The four bedrooms are dived into separate bungalows, creating a luxurious sense of personal space.
The Joglo pavilion is the property’s peaceful main hub. Perched overlooking the glorious lagoon pool, the open-air living area gives the dream-like illusion of simply floating on water. The Joglo offers a relaxing and luxurious lounge, with colonial-inspired furniture inviting you in to spend the evening chatting with friends and family or curled up with a good book.
Housed beneath the same majestic Joglo structure with the living room lies the villa’s opulent teakwood dining table. Surrounded by chairs with intricate wicker details and flanked by oriental carpets, the dining table offers a taste of the vibrant orient, while the unobstructed views of the pool provide an unmistakable Bali twist.
Garden & Pool
Villa Des Indes 1 offers the paradise-like illusion of being surrounded by turquoise water on all sides. Unlike the rectangle pools you usually see in Seminyak, Villa Des Indes 1 is blessed with a free-form lagoon pool measuring at a whopping 21-metres.
The stylish villa is nestled inside a lush tropical garden, where guests can relish the exotic beauty of frangipani and palm trees. The garden is dotted with tranquil fish ponds, making each ramble through the estate feel like a soothing meditation.
Villa Des Indes 1 Bedrooms
Villa Des Indes 1 houses four bedrooms designed to accommodate up to eight guests. If you’re travelling with children, two additional sofa beds are also available against an extra fee. The bedrooms are divided into three separate pavilions, allowing guests to indulge in a little-me time when needed.
The two master suites are each housed in a standalone pavilion hugged by a private verandah. Each room has a unique decor featuring one-of-a-kind antiques and art hailing from across Indonesia. Enjoy a moment of quiet in the private lounge, where you can flip through a selection of books or make use of the flatscreen TV provided. At the end of the day, drift off to sleep in the beautiful antique four-poster bed draped in fine white linen.
The two master bathrooms feature a sumptuous open-air design which allows guests to choose between an indoor and outdoor rainfall shower. Provided of course that you can resists the allure of the gorgeous freestanding bathtub.
The two guest bedrooms are housed within a single two-storey pavilion. The second-floor bedroom houses two twin beds, which can be reconfigured into a double bed if needed. The first-floor bedroom is furnished with a romantic four-poster bed. Both bedrooms are furnished with a TV.
Both guest rooms are adjoined by a spacious ensuite bathroom, which is accessed through a glamorous walk-through wardrobe. The first-floor bedroom houses a freestanding bathtub, while the room on the upper floor is furnished with a pampering rainfall shower feature.
