- Air Conditioning
- Maid Service
- Personal Chef
- Daily Breakfast
Quietly secluded in over an acre of private landscaped gardens, and surrounded by majestic Liana trees, after which the villas are named, the estate promises an unforgettable tropical vacation. Although the peacefulness of their serene garden setting makes it hard to believe, the villa estate is conveniently located in the heart of cosmopolitan Seminyak, only a short stroll from the beach and some of Bali’s most fashionable restaurants, bars and boutiques.
The five-bedroom Villa I and two-bedroom Villa II that make up this exclusive enclave feature spectacular swimming pools, first-class facilities and timeless charm. A full-time team of 22 staff (including three accomplished chefs) ensures guests are pampered throughout their stay. Providing even more luxurious space, a one-bedroom suite can be rented in conjunction with either (or both) of the villas, to give a total of eight bedrooms, making the estate suitable for everyone from couples to families or larger groups, weddings and events.
About The Villa Estate
It can be a tall order finding a chic beach villa that’s within a heartbeat of Seminyak’s popular restaurants, bars and boutiques and at the same time is blissfully free from traffic hustle and street bustle, yet that’s the promise of the estate. LataLiana means ‘Place of tall trees’; it’s the perfect name for a 4000sqm garden sanctuary bound by some of the most beautiful trees in the area. A 30-year-old baobab ‘upside down tree’ provides dappled shade while spectacular flame trees release showers of scarlet petals. Free-form swimming pools snake across lawns of Japanese grass dotted with gnarled frangipanis, and schools of koi ripple orange hues across fountain-sprinkled ponds.
In the midst of nature’s bounty are private self-contained villas – the five-bedroom Villa I and two-bedroom Villa II – each a cluster of individual pavilions offering generous living space, glamorous bedrooms, shaded terraces, secret courtyards and quiet corners. From polished teakwood and terrazzo floors below vaulted sirap (ironwood shingle) roofs, to twisted handles fashioned from namesake ‘liana’ vines gracing wooden doors, nature has influenced the design of these chic, contemporary villas.
Echoing the ocean a mere five minutes’ walk away, interiors are enriched with custom-made furniture crafted from the century-old contoured timbers of a traditional Indonesian phinisi schooner. Within the gardens, heritage teak structures from across the archipelago are repurposed for relaxation and leisure. (The traditional lumbung in Villa II will capture the imagination of couples and kids alike, with its two-tier bedroom and cabin-style extra bed.)
With an abundance of hi-tech toys such as Blu-ray players, surround-sound, iPads and WiFi, there’s plenty to keep guests of all ages amused beyond the swimming pool. Both villas boast a pool table and share a table-tennis table and a stable of bikes – there’s even a baby grand piano in Villa I.
Guests benefit from a sensational location: 300 metres beyond the villa walls is the wide expanse of Seminyak Beach with its famed surf breaks and sunsets. A shuttle is on hand to whisk guests to Spa Venus at Villa Kubu (the estate’s sister boutique villa hotel and spa) or to Seminyak’s many delights. Gado Gado, one of Bali’s top-rated restaurants, is moments away, as are a myriad other culinary landmarks. That said, with three resident chefs among the 22-strong staff on stand-by to whip up gourmet meals from a well-priced menu of local and international dishes, there’s really no call to leave the villa grounds at all.
In addition to Villa I and II, the enclave includes the self-contained one-bedroom Suite. This can be rented in conjunction with one (or both) of the villas, giving a total of eight bedrooms and making the estate suitable for everyone from couples to families to groups of friends.
Villa I Layout
The villa comprises a series of single-storey pavilions linked by covered walkways, terraces and private gardens, and arranged around three sides of a 25-metre free-form swimming pool. Closest to the entrance is the open-sided dining pavilion, with doors to the professional service kitchen and guest washroom behind. To one side is the main pavilion housing the living room, media room and guest bedroom opening onto a covered poolside terrace and, in a private pavilion separated by koi ponds, the master bedroom, guest bedroom and a kitchenette. At the opposite end of the pool is a heritage joglo pavilion that serves as an events space, plus two more guest bedrooms.
Cascading from the vaulted roof and sparkling in the sunshine streaming through the skylight, a chic contemporary chandelier sets the tone for the villa’s elegant living room. Below, a baby grand piano and a pool table rest on the oriental-rug-strewn floor, alongside sofas and stylish daybeds. Two walls of glass doors slide back for tropical fan-cooled living or can be closed for air-conditioned comfort. Opening onto a broad covered terrace just above the pool deck, the living room is perfect for entertaining.
Linked to the living room is the air-conditioned media room. Here, the massive sofas and chaise longuescreate the perfect conditions for reclining in supreme comfort while watching a film on the 51-inch flat-screen TV (complete with Bose surround-sound and Blu-ray disc player). There’s a library of over a thousand DVDs to choose from, as well as an excellent selection of books.
The dining pavilion is dominated by a 4.5-metre-long, 16-seater table crafted from a single slab of solid wood. Open on three sides to the pool deck, and with a vaulted wood-lined roof soaring above a terrazzo floor, the pavilion is cooled by natural breezes and ceiling fans and soothed by the sound of water trickling from fountains in the adjacent pond. Alongside, yet out of sight, is a professionally equipped commercial kitchen – the domain of the villa estate’s three chefs.
Presiding at the head of the pool is another open-sided seating area formed from the ornately carved four-pillar core of a 100-year-old joglo that sits on a raised ironwood deck. This heritage teakwood structure from Java with its distinctive trapezium-shaped roof serves as a romantic wedding pavilion, or a star-lit dining area. A separate awning can be attached to cover the entire deck.
There’s plenty of outdoor living space at here too: a traditional Indonesian grass-roofed pondok (rice shelter) serves as a poolside balé, providing a shaded alternative to the pool deck or the submerged seating at both ends of the pool. Parasol-shaded sun loungers dot the ironwood deck, while swing seats and clusters of casual seating on shaded terraces create further options for relaxation.
The villa’s five bedrooms are beautifully designed with individual colour schemes and covetable furniture crafted from the hull of a traditional phinisi boat. All have comfy beds, cable TVs (31-inch or 43-inch) with Blu-ray disc players, and a choice of air-conditioning or overhead fan. Large, light-filled bathrooms with non-slip acid-washed marble floors, twin basins, rain showers and terrazzo bathtubs look onto private courtyard gardens.
Master Bedroom Suite
Positioned for complete privacy, the master bedroom suite features opulent furniture set on a burnished teakwood floor. The imposing king-size bed, together with a selection of comfortable seating areas, is oriented towards a private walled garden surrounding a towering tropical tree. There’s another garden off the huge ensuite bathroom – a glamorous space with dressing area, upholstered seats, screened bathtub and both indoor and outdoor showers.
Master Pavilion Guest Suite
Also in the master pavilion is a king-bedded guest suite – perfect for a family with young children. A door connects its large garden bathroom to the master bathroom.
Main Pavilion Guest Suite
The pool-view guest suite in the main pavilion has sliding doors onto covered terraces facing the pool on one side and a koi pond on the other. Like the master suite, its king-size bed has clever mosquito netting, creating four-poster intimacy or retracting to open up the space.
Guest Pavilion Suites
Privately screened by a garden wall, the guest pavilion features two bedroom suites, each with its own entrance, beds that can be configured as a king or twins, and a delightful bathroom with a dressing room and a wall of glass onto a courtyard garden framing an alfresco shower area.
