Bali Private Villas-Villa Sadia is a private four-bedroom Bali villa, located in the traditional village of Tiyingtutul and blessed with beautiful rural views. The two-storey building is distinguished by its contemporary tropical architecture, fresh white walls, lime washed teak doors and structural elements, and is complimented with stylish modern furnishings. This holiday rental villa in Bali comprises an open plan living and dining area flanked by a fully equipped feature kitchen, an upstairs sitting room, and four bedrooms, each with ensuite bathrooms, one of which is situated in a self contained guest pavilion. Other features include a wide upstairs balcony and a sunny ground floor terrace that extends into a gorgeous garden that slopes down to a 12-metre swimming pool, complete with a pool bar. Space, style and simplicity define this charming Bali villa that is framed by the terraced rice fields that characterise the island’s heritage.
The master bedroom is located upstairs and is furnished with a canopied four poster king size bed, fitted cupboards, a sofa, bedside tables and lamps. Also upstairs is a similar bedroom with twin beds that can convert to a king sized bed, depending on guest’s preferences. Both of these bedrooms feature sliding glass doors that open onto a wide balcony terrace furnished with sofas.
Downstairs is another bedroom with a king-sized bed, a sofa and a small dressing area, while on the opposite side of the entrance courtyard is a stand-alone guest pavilion flaunting a turquoise theme and furnished with a king-sized four poster bed.
Each bedroom has a sunny ensuite bathroom, which is completely enclosed but has the feeling of being in the open air due to its glass roof and leafy plants. All the bathrooms has a non slip floor, stylishly bordered by loose pebbles and stepping stones, and is fitted with a terrazzo vanity unit and washbasin, a toilet and a standing rainshower. Three of the bathrooms are fitted with freestanding terrazzo bathtubs.
Living & Dining Room
The open-plan living and dining room presents white walls and a white terrazzo floor. It is cooled by ceiling fans and natural breezes, and bordered by glass doors that slide open onto a broad garden terrace, inviting the view indoors.
Positioned adjacent to the feature kitchen, lies the dining area, simply furnished with a table for eight. The living area is separated from the dining room by a right angled half wall that makes up the back of the built in L-shaped sofa, featuring a wide and comfortable cushioned seating and is complimented with an LCD flat screen, satellite-channel TV, complete with DVD player and quality audio system with six speakers.
On one side of the living space, glass doors open to a fish pond with stepping stones, and on the other to the sunny terrace, furnished with all-weather rattan daybeds and a table. This is a great spot for barbeques, expertly prepared by the staff using the gas-fired barbeque grill, which is also positioned on the terrace. A guest washroom is located just off the living room.
Upstairs Sitting Room
At the top of the gated staircase is another sitting room, sporting a bold red theme nestled in the midst of all the white décor that characterises the villa. This room offers a more private and cosy, air-conditioned option for watching TV or reading.
Here, red lanterns hang from a vaulted roof above a terrazzo floor, and sofas are positioned around a coffee table and a red shaggy pile rug, while the large LCD flat screen, satellite-channel TV and DVD player sits in a red cabinet, featuring surround sound with multiple speakers.
There is a balcony on either side of this room; one overlooks the pretty entrance garden courtyard, while the other overlooks the main garden and pool, with glorious views of the rice terraces.
The immaculate fully equipped kitchen is a dream in white, featuring white cabinets – well stocked with tableware and glassware, white polished marble work surfaces and a service bar.
This space of creation features an imported oven with a five-burner gas hob, a large fridge and all of the other modern cooking and food preparation appliances that the in house cooks need for the creation of delicious meals.
Garden & Pool
Three steps lead from the terrace into a neat and pretty walled garden, planted with ornamental palms, giant taro and flowering shrubs. A pathway runs through the velvety lawn, which gently slopes down to the swimming pool and a tree-lined river with rice terraces rising steeply on the other side.
The stone pool deck and furnishings follow the white theme of the villa, with four sunbeds and two umbrellas. At one end of the pool is pavilion with a flat roof supported by pillars, housing a bar with four stools. There is also a table for alfresco dining, while a large mirror behind the bar reflects the greenery of the garden and expands the space. The sparkling 12-metre swimming pool incorporates a children’s pool at one end. There is an outdoor pool shower for the convenience of the guests, and a bubbling Buddha head water feature, which enhances the serene ambience.
