The Layar is a spectacular design-led villa resort in the heart of chic Seminyak, moments from Bali’s best restaurants, boutiques & beach bars. Set in tropical gardens, The Layar's 3-bedroom private pool villa sleeps up to 6 Guests.view
Seminyak may be bustling with trendy shops, spas and eateries, but 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. The owners, Luli and Charles Orchard, are renowned designers, and they have created a comfortable family home that oozes character and charm and offers plenty of inviting indoor and outdoor living spaces.
The Orchard House is set in the midst of an expansive garden with winding paths, a manicured green lawn, mature trees, tropical flowers and a 13-metre swimming pool. The villa itself was designed to blend into the natural environment, so local materials were used throughout including ironwood shingles, alang-alang thatched roofs, natural stone and wood. However, the villa is also reminiscent of a grand colonial estate with shuttered windows and French doors that allow breezes and natural light to pour in, and an eclectic mix of exotic antiques, artworks and rich furnishings.
You can choose to spend your days here relaxing next to the pool, dining outdoors on the terrace, indulging in Balinese massages in the open-air bale next to the pool, catching up on your reading in the rooftop library, or watching the latest movies in the air-conditioned media room. However, part of the appeal of The Orchard House is its fabulous location just minutes from Seminyak’s hottest and most happening beach clubs, restaurants, bars and boutiques, so you’ll definitely want to set aside a few days to explore the neighbourhood.
