Des Indes II - Villa entrance

Villa Layout

Accommodation at Des Indes Villa II is in five pavilions arranged around two swimming pools. The social heart of the villa is the huge open-sided living pavilion surrounded by a koi pond and facing a large balé across the main pool. Set into one corner is a two-storey building with seating area, bar, kitchen and guest washroom downstairs and, above, a bedroom suite with a private terrace. Next to this is a sleeping pavilion with two large bedroom suites opening onto the pool terrace. To the other side of the main living pavilion is a second sitting area, a small alfresco dining area and two further bedroom pavilions, which face each other across the second pool.  A wall of plantation shutters allows these two bedrooms and the second pool to be discreetly closed off from the rest of the villa if extra privacy is sought.

Living Areas

The huge fan-cooled open-sided living pavilion – its soaring teak-lined roof supported on massive wood 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 blooms, 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.

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. On the other side of the main pool, facing a sun terrace fringed with sun-loungers, is a large cushion-covered bale.

A second fan-cooled living area, richly decorated with antique Indonesian furniture, faces the villa’s smaller swimming pool.

Bedrooms

Des Indes Villa II’s five bedrooms are spacious and handsomely designed, with teakwood-lined vaulted ceilings, custom-designed display cabinets, and polished wood floors embellished with oriental rugs. Four feature a king-size four-poster beds swathed in mosquito netting, while twin beds (that convert to a king if preferred) rest under a towering mosquito net in the fifth bedroom.

The colonial-style furniture and striking art and artefacts provide  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, two ground floor bedrooms open onto the main pool terrace, and two face each other across the second pool. All five feature fans and air-conditioning as well as a beautifully decorated air-conditioned marble bathroom with dressing area, bathtub, twin basins, and walk-in shower enclosure.

  • May 29th, 2019 - June 2nd, 2019

    Glad that we made the choice of Bali, although Sri Lanka, Thailand are much closer to us in India. The extended family born in US joined and it was great fun. Our daughter made the selection of Des Indes and we are in love with this place - rooms well appointed, the pool, the open central place which was just right for a large group of 12. The location was superb, with the best eating area places very close by. The service standard excellent with special mention to Khrisna, Agung, Dewi, Asih and Chandra - they were so attentive and serve with a smile. We will surely return for a longer break and definitely recommend this villa to our large friends and family.
