Occupying a gently sloping piece of land carpeted in soft grass, fringed by tropical greenery and with an ocean view, Semarapura is a sociable villa that pool lovers, pamper pusses, sun (and sunset) seekers will adore. Comprising a well-designed series of living, dining and sleeping pavilions that make the best of the spacious gardens, this is a great villa not only for an extended family or a group of friends, but also as a setting for special events*; its popularity as a venue arises from it being beautifully photogenic, very private and refreshingly serene. The balé (gazebo) at the top of the garden is notable not only for its cushioned views of the sun descending over the horizon at dusk, silhouetting the Hindu temple that sits upon rocks jutting out to sea just beyond the villa, but also as a tranquil haven for a massage or other pampering treat.
Semarapura’s five expansive bedrooms are scattered throughout the tropical garden. Each enjoys privacy and, although all are similarly sized and facilitated, the master bedroom is slightly more indulgent and includes a private deck with sunken jacuzzi tub. The large, free-form swimming pool with twin shallow sections takes pride of place beside a lush green lawn which sprawls around the front of a wide timber deck that’s littered with sun loungers topped with towels, sun hats and lotions, and encircled by tranquil reflection pools. A bar standing at one end of the swimming pool heightens the sociability of the pool area whilst inbuilt Bose speakers provide entertainment from morning until night. A media room leads off from the pool deck and here you can play a game of pool, pick a book from the library or curl up in front of the TV to watch a movie in air conditioned splendour.
The villa is fully-staffed and, to make up for its slightly out-of-the-way (although incredibly scenic and tranquil) coastal location close to Seseh, a seven-seater car with driver is available to guests for up to ten hours a day with the only cost being for petrol. Although there are a couple of good chefs to cook meals for you from a suggestion menu (provisions on guest account), you can also use the excellent fully-equipped sea-view kitchen yourself should you prefer.
*[Note: The villa has proven a very popular venue for weddings and parties but has had to scale back the number of functions it handles due to sensitivities of the neighbourhood, do check with us first if you wish to hold a function here.]
