Bali Bali Cottage
- SQM 400
Sharing its sister villas’ angular design aesthetic and set in a well-screened garden Bali Bali Cottage is a cabin-in-the-woods hideaway with a mezzanine-level double bedroom and single room in the main living pavilion, a private courtyard plunge pool and, beyond, a master bedroom suite delightfully secluded in a separate pavilion. Full of character and charm, it can only be booked in conjunction with either of the other villas, and is ideal for a couple or a small family.
Steps across the lawn of soft Japanese grass lead to Bali Bali Cottage’s pyramid-roofed pavilion and its open-to-garden living room. From this central space, doors open onto a compact yet well-equipped kitchen, single bedroom, delightful garden bathroom, and, artfully concealed behind a panelled wall, steps to a bedroom on the mezzanine level. The living room opens at the back to a small courtyard with dining terrace, from where a covered walkway leads to a plunge pool and second pavilion with master bedroom suite.
The master bedroom at Bali Bali Cottage enjoys the privacy of a separate building linked to the rest of the villa by a sunny courtyard. Two large twin beds, with plenty of space between, are backed by a long display shelf above which hang outriggers from traditional jukungfishing boats. To the side is the ensuite bathroom with shower while, beyond the bedroom window, the plunge pool encourages refreshing dips.
The guest bedroom on the cottage’s mezzanine floor offers a rich cabin-style experience. A double bed is contoured around the sloping roof and surrounded by wardrobes custom-built to the room’s unique shape. A wall of glass, with wooden louvres for privacy, looks down onto the living room, off which is a compact third bedroom with single bed – perfect for a child or nanny. These two bedrooms share a sun-dappled bathroom with twin granite sinks and a shower under a glazed pergola roof.
Warm tones of teakwood and island stone characterise the living room – an intriguingly shaped space decorated with tribal artefacts and comfortable seating oriented to enjoy the garden view (or, alternatively, the TV/DVD/stereo tucked into the corner). The open-sided dining area with table for six is visible beyond an opening between the kitchen and bathroom, merging shaded interior and sunny garden to create a sense of expanded space. Within the enclosed courtyard – the cottage’s heart – two sunbeds bordering the plunge pool accord spectacularly private lounging space.
Villa Bali Bali is located in a quiet residential area between the traditional villages of Umalas and Banjar Semer on Bali’s south-west coast. The estate is set well off the road down a private drive lined with tall palms, and faces rice terraces across the garden. There are a few small cafés within walking distance, and many more a kilometre to the north in Canggu. Bali’s finest restaurants such as Metis, Sarong, Sardine and La Lucciola are just six kilometres to the south in chic Seminyak – a 15-minute drive away.
