Des Indes III - Ultimate service

Villa Experience

Staff

One of the greatest benefits of staying in a villa is the personalised service guests get to enjoy.  Des Indes Villas’ well-trained staff will do their utmost to please with their warm and friendly Balinese hospitality, and know how to be on hand when needed while keeping discreetly out of sight when not.

Villa manager

Villa Des Indes’ manager and his assistant are responsible for the overall operation of both villas.  Their job is to oversee and coordinate the staff to meet the expectations of the guests.

Chef/cook

Villa Des Indes’ skilled chef and cook will happily prepare anything from the reasonably priced menu of Western and Asian dishes, as well accommodate special requests and dietary requirements.

Butlers

Our butlers deliver five-star service to ensure that guests have whatever they need.  They serve meals and beverages throughout the day, help with excursions, and attend to daily housekeeping.

Garden & pool

A gardener maintains the swimming pools, ponds and garden.

Security

Guests are kept safe and secure by the villa’s night-shift security as well as the Laksmana Estate’s 24-hour team.


Dining

Do take advantage of the skills of Des Indes Villas’ competent chef who is on hand to prepare daily breakfast (included in the rate), as well as lunch and dinner on request.  Guests may choose from a reasonably priced menu of home-style Indonesian, Asian and Western dishes catering to all tastes – everything from spaghetti carbonara to spicy beef rendang.  They can also arrange a barbecue of imported meats and fresh-from-the-sea fish. If guests have specific requests, the chef is more than happy to cook off-menu dishes as well as tailor meals to accommodate any special dietary requirements.  They may also prepare gourmet meals for up to 25 guests should you wish to host a dinner party while in residence.  (Off-menu groceries and beverages will be charged at cost plus 10.5% tax and 5% service.)


Families

Villa holidays are an excellent option for families, with access to your own private facilities and the freedom to use them whenever you want.  Knowing that the kids can enjoy themselves independently and safely, without you having to worry about other guests, is a real plus – and one that means parents are certain to have a more relaxed holiday too.

Des Indes Villas is particularly suitable for a couple of families holidaying together, who can take both II and III to enjoy social time tempered by some extra private space.  Those with toddlers will need to be vigilant, however, due to the unfenced swimming pools and ponds (though it is easy to keep an eye on children from the comfort of the living area).

The staff will make children feel as welcome as adults, and having these willing helpers on hand gives guests plenty of flexibility and freedom to do their own exploring beyond the villa grounds (full-time babysitting incurs a small extra cost).

Although the equipped kitchen allows you to prepare meals for fussy eaters or babies with ease, staff will be happy to do this for you – just talk through your requirements and meal schedules with the villa manager or chef and they will take care of the rest.

Don’t worry about packing all that cumbersome kids’ equipment for your stay. Just let us know what you need, and anything we don’t have in-house (villa facilities include a baby cot, highchair, car seat and games) we can hire on your behalf (click here to see list of available hire items).

And when the excitement of exploring the villa starts to wear off, check out our Things to do page – there’s plenty in the area to keep all the family amused throughout the holiday.

Together, Des Indes Villa II and Des Indes Villa III make one stunning five bedroom villa

Des Indes Villas sits securely within the Laksmana Estate, an exclusive enclave right in the heart of Seminyak.  Bali’s most stellar beach area – the wide expanse of Petitenget Beach is a mere five-minute walk away.  Many of the island’s most celebrated restaurants and bars are a short stroll away, including Ku De Ta, Metis, Sarong and Potato Head.  No need to take a taxi to reach Seminyak’s many boutiques, lifestyle shops and spas either.  What a perfect spot!

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 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.
