A bright, airy, and very spacious living and dining area forms the hub of this warm and welcoming villa. The room features a double-height, traditional pitched roof, is cooled by ceiling fans, and decorated with contemporary artworks. An enormous U-shaped rattan sofa faces the pool and garden and an eight-seater dining table lies just behind. Glass doors on both sides slide back to create a delightful indoor/outdoor tropical living space.
On the opposite side of the pool, a comfortable thatched bale has ample seating for six and makes a delightful space to relax, and a pretty walled courtyard just beyond the dining area is a great place to enjoy an early morning breakfast or afternoon tea.
Villa Jemma – Seminyak 4 bedroom luxury villa, BaliElite Havens
If you’re looking for laid-back luxe in a tropical paradise; somewhere spacious, comfortable, complete with a team of professional and caring staff, yet within walking distance of sophisticated Seminyak’s best restaurants, bars and beaches, then look no further than Villa Jemma.
The villa’s gorgeous garden, punctuated with intriguing Indonesian artefacts and bursting with frangipani, orchids and bougainvillea, is just the place to spend long, luxurious days with friends and family. Slip into the sparkling, 16-metre, deep-blue-tiled pool, which has a separate shallow splash area for kids, or lounge in the shade of the cushioned bale and sip a freshly squeezed fruit juice while you browse a magazine.
The bright and airy lounge and dining room, with its soaring roof and huge rattan sofa, opens widely to the garden on one side and a cool calm courtyard to the other – the perfect spot for an early morning breakfast or cup of afternoon tea. Plug in your iPod, kick back under the whirr of the fan and ponder the villa’s menu of mouthwatering dishes as you decide what you’d like your chef to prepare for dinner.
Of the four bedrooms, the upper-floor master is particularly private and has its own comfortably furnished private balcony, while two guest bedrooms on the ground floor open directly onto the garden and pool and the third conveniently doubles as an air-conditioned study/TV room.
