Kalimaya surpasses expectation – but maybe there’s a clue in its name – literally, ‘River of Gems’ – for it certainly delivers a free-flow stream of precious experiences that out-sparkle other Seminyak villas. Little wonder then that Hollywood movie stars and royal family members count among Kalimaya’s guests.
Each of the four two-storey villas in the Kalimaya family – two with two bedrooms, one with three and a five-plus-one-bedroomed villa – is set in its own private walled garden coloured with tropical blooms and cooled by lotus ponds and fountains. Each has an extraordinary amoun...t of living space: not one but two living rooms, a separate dining room, fully equipped kitchen, and large terraces on both levels with teakwood tables for alfresco dining. There’s been no stinting on the furnishings either – plush upholstered sofas, solid teakwood furniture, oriental rugs, blackout curtains, and four-poster beds with super-sized King Koil mattresses and fine cotton bedding. There’s air-con absolutely everywhere, even in the enormous marble bathrooms – so it’s no problem to keep cool while preparing for the Big Night Out.
Such abundance continues in the gardens: each villa features a large swimming pool with jacuzzi, sun-loungers and parasols, alang-alang thatched balé, and an infra-red sauna. Further leisure facilities are at hand, as guest enjoy complimentary membership of the elite Canggu Club.
The jewel in the crown is the exclusive location behind Seminyak Square, a short stroll from the beach and the hip sunset hotspots of Ku De Ta and the Breeze at Samaya. And while some of Bali’s best restaurants are within easy walking distance, with a competent cook on the 16-man staff of butlers, housekeepers, gardeners and security, many guests choose to dine ‘at home’ – there’s a suggestion menu, and groceries can be purchased on account with a small mark-up to cover basics and transport.
Couples or families would be thrilled with the two- or three-bedroom villas while the five-plus-one-bedroom Villa Kalimaya I is perfect for two families holidaying together. For larger gatherings, such as reunions or wedding parties, the villas can be booked together. So the Kalimaya villas are a great choice for a family with teenagers, or friends who want to bask in luxury, be indulged by a highly trained team of staff, enjoy the hi-tech facilities, and still be in the thick of Seminyak action.Read more
Villa Kalimaya II occupies a prime position in heart-achingly hip Seminyak 200m from the beach and a hop and skip away from the up-market shops and restaurants of Jalan Laksmana. It is one of a small enclave of exclusive private residences – among them, three other ‘sister villas’ of the same name – along a small private lane behind Seminyak Square. The beach is just five minutes’ stroll away, as is Ku De Ta, La Lucciola and the Breeze at Samaya. Other famed restaurants and bars, Sarong included, are also within walking distance.
