Designed by innovative architect Ian Chee, Villa Coco Groove is an chic 3-bedroom luxury villa in the heart of Seminyak that offers space and seclusion, along with a mix of traditional Balinese and modern minimalist style. Tall walls ensure the utmost privacy, while the expansive grassy knoll, shady coconut grove and open plan spaces allow you to experience tropical island nature at every turn. The Singaporean owner has also contributed to the vibe here with a worldly collection of antique furniture, exotic artworks and books. For a relaxing getaway in stylish Seminyak, Villa Coco Groove is an oasis of calm and cool just steps from some of Bali’s most vibrant shops, restaurants and nightlife.
Your day at Villa Coco Groove starts when you awaken to sunlight filtering in through the tall coconut trees and birds chirping in the frangipani trees and tropical foliage. Head to the breakfast bar in the modern open-air kitchen, and the smiling staff here will treat you to a breakfast spread fit for kings, as well as their gracious Balinese hospitality.
Grab your swimsuit and towel, and make your way to the pool deck for some serious sunbathing sessions and laps in the turquoise pool. You can also chill out in the shaded bale next to the pool with a good book or indulge in a rejuvenating Balinese massage here.
Shopaholics will want to take a stroll along Seminyak’s main drag just a short walk from the villa to pick up the latest fashions and unique clothing, shoes, jewellery and housewares by Bali-based designers. You can also pop into to cool cafes, sleek wine bars and lively restaurants for a break from the shops and great gourmet fare and drinks.
Dinner parties and gatherings are a must here, as the living and dining area is spacious and open on three sides to allow for indoor/outdoor entertaining. The sunken lounge in the living room can seat up to 14 people comfortably on the cushioned sofa benches, and the staff are more than happy to prepare canapes, cocktails and divine dishes for groups as long as you plan ahead of time.
After the party is done, head to the open-air bathroom in your room to take a long soak in the terrazzo bathtub under the stars, and then slip under the soft sheets of your queen-size bed to settle in for a blissful evening of uninterrupted sleep in the cool air-conditioned space.
Villa Coco Groove is shaped like an L, and the kitchen and living and dining area is located along the main branch of the L. The modern kitchen is bright and airy, with black terrazzo counters and white drawers and cupboards, which store all of the utensils and appliances you need to whip up delicious meals. There is a breakfast bar here with comfortable stools that can seat 4 people, and it is backed by a long lotus pond next to a wall lined with frangipani trees and an open trellis dripping in flowers that allows dappled light to fill up the room.
Next to the kitchen, a round dining table can seat up to 8 people and offers views out to the shady coconut grove. The dining room can be separated from the kitchen with a large sliding wooden screen.
Connected to the dining area is the breezy living area with a sunken lounge that can be reached by a few short steps down on either side. The sunken lounge has sofas on benches on all sides and plush cushions for sitting back and relaxing. The living area is covered, but open on 3 sides, so you get soft sunlight in the morning and cool breezes at night.
Next to the living area, the study offers cool polished concrete floors, walls adorned with antique ornaments, a comfy sofa, flat screen TV with satellite channels, DVD player, Bose Stereo system, iPod dock and a writing desk for those who need to attend to business while away. This room also has a tall window that looks out onto the lotus pond that stretches the length of this wing, as well as its own private bathroom.
At the very top part of the ‘L’, the master bedroom awaits with a beautiful antique Chinese queen-sized bed, shelves lined with statues, artefacts and books, a walk-in wardrobe with plenty of storage space, and a gorgeous open-air bathroom with a secluded garden, shower and terrazzo bathtub open to the skies and a tranquil lotus pond. The bedroom also looks out over the glittering swimming pool.
Located along the bottom section of the ‘L’, the guest bedrooms are peaceful and private, with gorgeous wooden doors, smooth concrete floors, soaring ceilings with alang-alang roofs, and comfortable queen-sized beds. Each room also has its own private indoor/outdoor bathroom with tropical gardens, wooden floors and and pebbled walls over the natural stone countertops.
At the top of the property, you will find the beautiful 18-metre lap pool, which is surrounded by stone pathways through the grass, lush greenery and wooden decking with sun loungers that rest partly in the sun and shade. There is also a lovely bale (gazebo) next to the pool with a cushioned day bed and curtains that can be closed for privacy.
