A local lad shins up a coconut tree, cows stand patiently tethered in surrounding fields, dragonflies hover, bamboo penjor hang over the roads to celebrate the latest Hindu festival, and fishermen cast their nets from a nearby beach – welcome to the real Bali. And welcome to Villa Asada, a truly spectacular villa, perched upon a hillside with glorious views of Amuk Bay near Candidasa on Bali’s east coast.
This gorgeous area is set well away from the hustle and hubbub of mainstream tourism, replete with forests and mighty mountains, emerald rice terraces, ancient villages and temples, mystical water palaces, secret white-sand beaches, and some of the island’s best diving and snorkelling.
The contemporary-styled Villa Asada offers oodles of space, comfort and fabulous facilities, 25m above sea level and approximately 100m from the seashore. The property is comprised of two connected double-storey buildings along two sides of a swimming pool. All four ensuite bedrooms and a great choice of common areas are blessed with wide views of the bay, the island of Nusa Penida, and the distant south-western tip of Lombok.
Vaulted ceilings of Bengkirai wood and Rattan, with Merbau wood floors and Sirap(Iron Wood) roofing give a solid wood feel throughout. Oversized glass doors fold back to let in the sound of breaking surf on the reef below, the trickle of the fountains and the gentle whirl of overhead fans. Generous terraces with overhanging roofs ease into flat velvety lawns, which surround the pool providing a practical and enjoyable indoor/outdoor living space, complete with a well-stocked poolside bar for those afternoon cocktails.
Villa Asada has a full team of delightful, knowledgeable, highly competent staff who will ensure that every need is fulfilled. Guests can look forward to butler service and delicious home cooking (there’s a suggestion menu, and groceries will be billed at cost +20%). The staff can also provide extensive information on the local area and a surprising number of things to see and do for both children and adults (a chauffeured car, driven by the butler who also fulfills the role of tour guide, is inclusive of cost). The villa is perfect for families or groups of friends looking for a personalised five-star experience – or indeed a wedding – in an extraordinarily beautiful location.
