Families and friends will find an oasis of calm at The Orchard House, a spacious and serene 4-bedroom luxury hideaway tucked away down a small lane just steps from Seminyak’s main attractions. Sleeps up to 8 Guests.view
Exotic ambiance abounds at Villa Shambala, a stylish 5-bedroom luxury villa located in the heart of Seminyak. Set in a sprawling private walled garden, the property features an antique carved wooden joglo that houses open and airy living spaces, a separate guest pavilion that is perfect for kids, two TV lounges, a spa pavilion, huge swimming pool, and manicured lawns with tranquil water features. Utilizing a mixture of natural materials like wood, stone and glass, intriguing Indonesian artefacts, and contemporary comforts like A/C and Wi-Fi throughout, Villa Shambala makes for an alluring Bali villa escape for families and large groups.
Although Villa Shambala is just minutes from some of Bali’s best boutiques, spas, restaurants, bars and beach clubs, as soon as you step into the sun dappled garden at the villa you feel as though you are miles away from the traffic and crowds. The garden is bursting with tropical greenery, and the bubbling water features accompany the sounds of birds chirping away in the palm and frangipani trees.
Each of the wooden pavilions here was designed in traditional Indonesian style, and warm teak wood can be found throughout in the form of soaring ceiling beams, pillars, coffee tables and wood floors. Plenty of sofas and cushions mean that you always have somewhere to chill out, and the profusion of artefacts, artworks and primitive statues remind you that you’ve truly arrived in Indonesia. Of course, the state-of-the-art equipment, appliances and modern technology also place you firmly in the 21st century.
The main pavilion at Villa Shambala is an antique joglo from Java, and it houses the living and dining areas as well as the master bedroom and one guest bedroom. Families and friends can gather at the huge U-shaped sofa in the living room and gaze out at the pool area or the water feature at the back. Glass doors open to allow light and air to flow freely, and the dining area is just steps away with its long wooden table that seats 10.
In addition, the main pavilion is where you’ll find the modern kitchen with an island work station and breakfast bar, and the media room with a large screen projector, satellite TV, DVD player, surround sound system, and a huge library with DVDs, CDs, books and games.
The master bedroom at Villa Shambala is truly unique, with a stunning carved wooden canopy above the queen bed that allows you to pull down flowing white nets to create an intimate sanctuary within the room. Purple and cream accents contrast nicely against the wooden floors, antiques add a touch of class, and large floor to ceiling windows offer views over the stone Buddha, water feature and lily pond. This room also has an ensuite garden bathroom with a natural stone tub and a rain shower.
Villa Shambala has one guest bedroom in the main pavilion and another three in a separate guest pavilion that also features another TV lounge with a 42-inch TV and DVD player. Each of the guest bedrooms has a queen-sized bed (although the beds in the separate guest pavilion can also be separated into twin beds), courtyard bathroom, and bright decor that creates a cheerful vibe.
Outside you will find the 19-metre swimming pool lined with lofty palm trees, pool decks with sun loungers, umbrellas, and bean bag chairs, and a circular lounge seating area under a sail-like canopy. There is also a special spa pavilion with two massage beds, and an outdoor dining area with a barbecue and space to seat up to 20 people.
