Des Indes III - Poolside bale

Des Indes Villa III

Villa Layout

Accommodation at Des Indes III is in three adjoining pavilions arranged in an L-shape around the 16-metre swimming pool.  The social heart of the villa is the huge open-sided living pavilion facing the length of the pool, across which is a large balé.  To the right is the sleeping pavilion with two large bedroom suites opening onto the pool terrace.  Tucked into the corner of the L is a two-storey building with seating area, bar, kitchen and guest washroom downstairs and, above, a third bedroom suite with a terrace.  A wall of plantation shutters and three sets of doors separates Des Indes III from Des Indes II, which can be closed off for privacy or opened when both villas are rented together.

Living Areas

The huge fan-cooled open-sided living pavilion – its soaring teakwood-lined roof supported on massive teakwood pillars – is the villa’s social hub.  Opening onto the swimming pool and surrounded on three sides by koi ponds dotted with islands of heliconia, this is Bali-style living at its best.  Old-style cane sofas and planters chairs are arranged around coffee tables in two distinct seating areas, and ten guests may gather around the teak dining table in cushioned comfort.

On the other side of the pool is a large cushion-covered balé big enough for a crowd; sun-seekers will gravitate to the sun loungers set on the pool terrace.

Across the koi pond is a bar area with antique style seating and, behind the service bar, a very well-equipped kitchen with sophisticated coffee maker and wine fridge.


Bedrooms

Des Indes III’s three bedrooms are spacious and handsomely designed, with high teakwood-lined vaulted ceilings, polished wood floors, and custom-designed display cabinets.  They each feature a large four-poster bed, colonial-style furniture, oriental rugs, and striking art and artefacts – a rich visual counterpoint to the ultra-modern 47-inch curved TVs with satellite channels and DVD players.  The upstairs bedroom has its own roof terrace while the two ground floor bedrooms open onto the pool terrace.  All three feature fans and air-conditioning as well as a large air-conditioned marble bathroom with dressing area, bathtub, twin basins, and walk-in shower enclosure.

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.
