Welcome to Villa Des Indes I – a rare, one-of-a-kind jewel set in the exclusive Laksmana estate in Seminyak’s most sought-after locale, moments from the beach.
The villa is designed in the style of a Dutch-era hill station, with individual living and sleeping pavilions spread around the garden. Its splendid living pavilion is a centuries-old teakwood joglo – once the residence of a Javanese aristocrat, and re-assembled in Bali. Today, with its elaborately sculpted pillars and intricately carved panels, the joglo commands centre-stage as an open-sided, open-plan living space surrounded by a 21-metre lagoon-style swimming pool and an ornamental koi pond.
Here, and in the four impeccably proportioned bedrooms, you’ll find an eclectic collection of colonial-style furniture, Asian antiques and Indonesian artefacts that add to the villa’s unique character – a gramophone cabinet in the master bathroom, a travel desk in a guest bedroom, an antique (working) telephone in the joglo, Oriental rugs and prized pieces stand on floors of polished teakwood and Palimanan stone, Dutch East Indies travel posters and black and white photos of 1930s Bali beam down from every wall. Out of sight, but always on hand, are the villa butlers, ready to meet your every whim – whether an espresso served on your bedroom veranda, silver service afternoon tea in the joglo, or a sunset cocktail prepared in the bar. Your accomplished chef will serve a hearty breakfast, and will happily prepare a light lunch or gourmet candle-lit dinner from an appealingly priced menu.
With its warm service and wonderful surroundings, you might be challenged to leave this distinctive villa (named after Holland’s legendary turn-of-the-20th-Century Hotel Des Indes). Add the best of Seminyak a short walk away – think Ku de Ta, La Lucciola, Potato Head and Bali’s most noted restaurants, boutiques and spas – and Des Indes I is the perfect choice for five-star-seeking, fun-loving families and friends.
