Some of the world’s best luxury villas are located in Bali, Indonesia, and Villa Adasa in the fashionable and luxurious Seminyak Beach, is certainly holding its own against the competition. The ultra-exclusive Laksmana Villas Residential Estate is home to this quiet retreat, just steps from white sand beaches and the Indian Ocean, as well as many of the best restaurants, spas, hotels, and nightlife in the area.
Enter through the gate, guarded by 24-hour security, and head down the pathway lined with tall, swaying palm trees to find Villa Adasa. The nearly 900-square-foot living pavilion evokes the cultural heritage of Bali style architecture and design with thatched and shingled roofs, whitewashed wooden entryways, white sandstone walls, terrazzo and teak wood floors, and outdoor bathrooms.
The interior design blends old and new, as modern furnishings are juxtaposed with antiques and artifacts. Just outside is a large fishpond with stone water features, a 46-foot swimming pool and two king sized day beds, great for lounging or a massage.
The two guest bedrooms open up to the perfectly manicured lawn and pool area through sliding shutter doors; while the master bedroom on the second floor, contains a terrace with seating and space for yoga and sunbathing.
Flat screen HD TVs can be found in the minimally furnished rooms and a wireless Sonos sound system, controllable through iPod, iPad or iPhone, is ready to carry soothing melodies throughout the entire villa. Wireless Internet, DVD players and an extensive movie collection are also on hand to take care of any entertainment needs.
As with most luxury villa rentals, a full staff is on hand to ensure guests are satisfied with their accommodations and their every need is met. The Villa Adasa staff includes four butlers available 24 hours, a highly skilled chef and a manager.
Whether it’s making restaurant reservations, grocery shopping at the local markets, or arranging a spa treatment, no request is too small. Visitors can also take advantage of additional services like laundry and dry cleaning, car rental, adventure tours, and babysitting.
Villa Adasa can host up to six guests and can be booked anywhere from $740 a night to $1,260 a night depending on the season. Rates include full breakfasts and return airport transfer.
