Five glorious residences – three 4-bedroom, one 3-bedroom and a 1-bedroom villa – make up the villa compound, an exclusive enclave five minutes from Berawa Beach and only 15 minutes from the buzz of Seminyak. Each is secure in its own garden with pool and outdoor pergola or balé, and enjoys shared gym, spa, and children’s playground. Each has its own character and style, from ultra-contemporary to whimsical heritage chic – enriched with hi-tech facilities including iPod docks and home theatre systems. Best of all, they can be rented separately or together, meaning the villas can accommodate guests in many combinations, from a honeymooner couple to two families in adjoining villas right up to 40+ residential guests for a wedding celebration.
About The Villa Compound
Welcome to the villa compound – five tropical garden villas in rural Berawa close to Canggu. A sense of space sets this exclusive enclave apart; each villa comprises living and bedroom pavilions set in its own private gardens with swimming pool, sundeck, lotus ponds and myriad quiet corners.
Two of the villas – the four-bedroom Villa 3200 and 3233 – are contemporary in design and spread over two floors. Two more – the three-bedroom 3354 and four-bedroom 3355– are inspired by Indonesia’s cultural heritage, with accommodation spread across a series of joglos (traditional teakwood homes). And the smallest – the one-bedroom 3372 is a rustic antique gladak (cottage) rising on stilts above a lotus pond. All five have stunning interiors full of handsome furniture and a fascinating collection of antiques and artefacts from Southeast Asia, China and Taiwan.
As the five villas can be rented separately or together in many different configurations, the villa compound is perfect for everyone from couples seeking a romantic retreat, to multiple families holidaying together, right up to large groups of friends requiring all 16 bedrooms. And whether guests seek social space or solitude, they’ll never tire of the choices the villa compound provides.
24-hour butler service assures guests are looked after well, and with the discretion and sensitivity of true hospitality professionals. Among the 29-strong staff that serves the five villas are three chefs, ready to whip up gourmet meals from a well-priced menu of local and international dishes.
Kids will surely gravitate to the playground where the swings, slides, sandpit and Wendy house will keep them occupied while parents recline in the shaded comfort of the nearby balé. Adults get to play too: in the air-conditioned gym (try the Power plate or treadmill), at the spa with twin massage beds and traditional sauna, or at the boutique.
For entertainment beyond the villa, guests may choose to cycle through the rice fields on the villa bikes, spend time at Berawa Beach less than a kilo meter away,head for the boutiques and bars of Seminyak, or explore Bali’s scenic beauty further afield courtesy of a complimentary car and driver.
Villa 3354 comprises three pavilions spread out over a series of terraces, separated by pools and lily ponds and linked by a covered walkway lined with antiques and artefacts. From the traditional Balinese entrance, lava-stone steps lead across an ornamental pond to an open-sided living pavilion facing the swimming pool and sun terrace. Lower down, reached via further steps over cascading ponds, is the stand-alone guest bedroom suite, while up on the highest level, opening onto a terrace and pond above the pool, is the master suite and a twin-bedded guest suite.
Sitting at the centre of Villa 3354, with rice-terrace views beyond louvered shutters, is the open-sided, fan-cooled antique joglo living pavilion with its magnificently carved pillars and ornate ceiling. On one side, parallel to a pond complete with fire-bowl and carved sandstone screen, sits a four-metre-long teak wood table that, with tub chairs at the heads and cushioned benches on both sides, seats 10 with space to spare. On the other side, an over-sized sofa and chairs looks onto the waterfall-fed swimming pool and, rising above, the master bedroom pavilion. Hidden behind a wall of reclaimed brick is a small but well-equipped kitchen with two fridges, wine fridge, espresso machine and a walk-in pantry.
In the garden are more corners for relaxation. On the poolside sundeck a pair of sun loungers sit side-by-side, and a daybed shaded by an age-greyed thatch roof is raised on river rocks for a better view of the rice terraces. All three bedrooms boast delightfully private seating in a hidden garden setting.
Villa 3354’s three bedrooms offer a level of privacy that is rare in similar-sized villas in Bali. With soaring ceilings, floors of terrazzo or teakwood edged in acid-washed marble, they are infused with light from towering windows and extra-wide sliding doors that open onto private garden terraces and tropical bathrooms with double basins, rain showers and double bathtubs carved from river rock. All have air-conditioning and overhead fans, iPod docks, flat-screen TVs with satellite channels and DVD players. And throughout each room are scattered glorious oriental and Indonesian antiques, curios, carvings and ceramics.
The palatial master bedroom suite is simply stunning. Between soaring reclaimed teak wood pillars raised on terrazzo plinths rests a king-size bed cocooned by billowing net curtains to create a room-within-a-room. A large sitting area with deeply cushioned over-size sofa and armchairs leads onto a sun-drenched terrace with double sunbed looking over a foliage-strewn pond towards the living pavilion below. Behind the bed is a huge dressing area and to the side are sliding doors to an enormous semi-open bathroom with statement river-stone bathtub set by an antique Chinese screen.
Behind the master bedroom suite and under the same soaring roof is a guest bedroom. Here, twin beds flanked by built-in wardrobe and dressing tables face a small sun terrace guarded by a Ganesha statue and, to one side, a tropical garden bathroom.
Occupying its own pavilion on the lower terrace is a second guest bedroom. Defining the space is the four-pillar core of a traditional joglo, into which a king-size bed sits on a raised terrazzo platform. To one side, a daybed rests between twin desks; on the other, sliding doors open onto a private garden. Beyond the dressing area is a large bathroom under a separate pavilion roof, with a huge river-rock tub for sun-bright or starlight bathing.
