Villa Sea is a funky 2-bedroom private pool villa at 4S Villas in central Seminyak, with boutiques, spas, restaurants and nightlife directly at your doorstep, and within easy walking distance of the beach. Sleeps up to 4 Guests.view
The word ‘layar’ means ‘sail’ in Indonesian, making The Layar a fitting moniker for Seminyak’s newest designer villas and spa. The name refers to the stunning asymmetrical roofs here that slope at an angle and fall dramatically to the ground, evoking the sails of traditional Indonesian sailboats. This is tropical-chic architecture at its best and a serene enclave in the midst of some of Bali’s best restaurants, shops and bars. Each of the spacious and secluded private villas has its own ambiance and character, and they can accommodate singles, couples, families or groups with 1, 2, 3 and 4-bedroom luxury villas on offer.
Despite having an impressive 23 villas, The Layar - Designer Villas and Spa still manages to instil a feeling of openness and space, as the villas are spread out around a large grassy expanse filled with lofty flowering trees, and the setting is elevated, which makes it seem as though the boundary walls are non-existent. The villas themselves were built with total privacy in mind and feature gorgeous garden sanctuaries, open living spaces, elegant pools, modern interiors and luxurious amenities. Although you have everything you need to make yourself at home in your romantic hideaway or multi-tiered and roomy abode, the staff here are always on hand to provide five-star service when and if you desire.
As the only one, four-bedroom luxury villa at The Layar - Designer Villas and Spa, this is the grandest of them all with a sprawling garden awash in stone slabs and a lily pond, a large swimming pool backed by a contoured wall, a separate jacuzzi and spa/massage room, a Bengkirai wood pool deck, oversized sun loungers, an outdoor dining table replete with a BBQ station, and plenty of spacious rooms that look out over the garden and pool.
The split-level living area has a media room that overlooks the ground floor living space, a raised dining area with a large table that can seat up to 8 people, a breakfast bar, and a tranquil sitting area that overlooks the garden. The master bedroom features a king-sized bed, huge wardrobes and an ensuite bathroom with a terrazzo tub and an open-air shower, and three plush bedrooms spread out off the main villa.
The large split-level living room provides a perfect balance of sociable open- plan entertainment space and quiet get-away-from-it-all corners. On a raised platform of polished Merbau wood, a dining table for eight is separated from the well-equipped kitchen by a bar counter. On the lower level, sofas are arranged around a coffee table overlooking the garden and pool. Above is a mezzanine media room where sensually curved seating runs the full length of one wall.
A curved display wall creates an imposing backdrop to the master suite’s leather-and-wood bed which faces a bank of wardrobes and a desk set below a wall-mounted TV. A corner banquette looks onto a small garden open to the bathroom, where there’s a terrazzo bathtub, vanity with twin basins, shower enclosure and second alfresco shower.
Discreetly tucked off the living room in the main villa are the three large air-conditioned guest bedrooms, each with a unique charm. One is multi-level, with the bed on a raised Merbau-wood platform facing the pool, and a dressing area and large garden bathroom (with twin basins, indoor and outdoor showers and a bathtub) on the lower level. The two other bedrooms – one with a king, the other with twin beds – look onto their own corner gardens and also have indoor/outdoor bathrooms with bathtub, shower enclosure, and twin basins.
There’s more luscious lounging space in the garden, with oversized sunbeds languishing on the lawn and sun loungers and a circular love seat set on the pool deck. Submerged seating in the jacuzzi and shallow wings flanking the pool provide the perfect spots to stretch out and cool down. For sunset cocktails and alfresco meals there’s a dining table for six set before a barbecue cooking station.
