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.
