Des Indes II - Living and entertaining space

Des Indes Villa II

Villa Layout

From Des Indes II’s bright red iron-studded door, steps across a small pond lead into an open-sided living area then onto a covered poolside dining pergola and second seating area.  Behind the living area is the master bedroom pavilion opening onto the length of the pool terrace, facing the guest bedroom pavilion on the other side.  Plantation shutters and a set of three doors run the width of the living areas and divide Des Indes II from Des Indes III.  These can be closed off for privacy or opened when both villas are rented together.

Living Areas

A deeply cushioned daybed is the focus of the fan-cooled living area, an open-sided space defined by a striking floor of traditional patterned tiles, and decorated with antique Indonesian furniture and artefacts.  Opposite is another living corner, where a pair of antique armchairs is set before a peaceful Buddha.  From both areas, plantation shutters open onto the pool or koi ponds of Des Indes III (but may be closed off for privacy).  In between is a covered poolside dining area with marble-topped dining table for four.


Bedrooms

Master suite

Under a vaulted teakwood-lined roof rises a magnificent four-poster bed swathed in mosquito netting.  Colonial-style furniture, antique porcelain and oriental rugs enrich this air-conditioned master suite – even the ultra-modern 47-inch curved TV has a magnificent backdrop, set before an ornately carved mirror-backed geometric panel.  The bathroom is just as beautifully decorated, with a dressing area, bathtub framed within a garden alcove, twin basins, and walk-in shower enclosure with pool view.

Guest suite

The air-conditioned guest pavilion also looks out over the pool, with extra-wide sliding glass doors opening onto the terrace and, when the plantation shutters are open, a view across the pool of Des Indes III.  Twin beds (that join to create a king-size bed if preferred) rest under a towering mosquito net on an over-sized platform.  An antique-style rocking chair is perfect for watching movies on the 43-inch satellite TV, and beyond a linen-padded wall lies a dressing area with wardrobe, and a bathroom with bathtub, large shower enclosure and twin basins.

Des Indes Villas – Seminyak villas with 2 to 5 bedrooms Elite Havens

Des Indes II and III are an exceptional pair of fully staffed pool villas within the ultra-elite Laksmana Villas estate in the heart of Seminyak, moments from Petitenget Beach.

Named after Holland’s legendary Hotel Des Indes, this inter-connecting pair comprises two sets of vaulted pavilions arranged around inviting swimming pools and divided by a wall of double doors and pivoting plantation shutters that can be opened up when both villas are rented together or closed off for complete privacy.

A wealth of natural materials features in the design – teakwood-lined ceilings and floors, Palimanan stone reliefs, wall panels of padded linen, bathrooms of Italian marble.  Every room is richly decorated with colonial-style furniture, prized antiques, precious Asian ceramics and artefacts, and oriental rugs.  Among the more contemporary luxuries are top-range King Koil mattresses, crisp cotton bed-linen, and curved 47-inch TVs with satellite channels in every bedroom.

Pick up one of the many books lying around, and retreat to the antique daybed in Des Indes II or the poolside balé in Des Indes III.  Take a siesta on a sun lounger then cool off in the pool.  Take a leisurely stroll to Ku De Ta for sunset cocktails, and dine at La Lucciola across the road, or return to the villa for a gourmet meal created by your accomplished chef.  Then retreat to the air-conditioned comfort of your spacious bedroom, sink into a petal-strewn bathtub and finally retire to your four-poster bed. Repeat the next day.

With the beach, boutiques, restaurants, bars and spas of Seminyak just moments away, families and groups of friends will find Des Indes Villas the perfect choice for their Bali vacation.
