Villa Kula was completed in March 2010 and is perfect place to stay during your Bali holiday with family and friends. This luxury villa is conveniently situated just 100 meters away from the beach just behind the Balisani suites and opposite The Akasha. Excellent for early morning strolls along the surf and within half an hour's walk from trendy spots such as La Luciola or Breeze restaurant at The Samaya. Another few minutes and you will discover the now famous KuDeTa.
What's in Batu Belig
The village of Batu Belig where the villa is located used to be a sleepy village at the end of a no through road, however since the new bridge to Berawa was built and the Canggu Club opened it has become home to some incredible restaurants that have gained cult following with local Expats who stay on Bali year round. This is due to the tasty food and incredible low prices.
Three of these are within walking distance of the villa (within 200m) and the most established of these is Warung Sobat which has been selling great food (the garlic prawns are superb) for over 10 years. The other two are Warung Satya which serves brilliant food at amazing prices (a three course lunch for just $4) plus the new one opened Naughty Nuri's. Each of these restaurants have become famous in their own right… and don't forget Villa Kula comes complete with a personal cook so you can also stay at home and enjoy the privacy of the villa.
Beyond the village
If you want a wider variety then you are only a 5 minute drive from downtown Seminyak. The closest is the popular Italian restaurant La Rustica which is on the border of Batu Belig & Petitenget and 100m further up the road is Metis, the latest restaurant from the former owners of the legendary Warisan. Just across the road from Metis is Sardine, which serves fusion food and next to that Café Degan, a Thai restaurant with world class desserts from the pastry chef, who used to work at The Ritz Carlton. There are plenty more in between so you are never far away from good food at Villa Kula.
Why Villa Kula?
When choosing the perfect holiday villa the location is an important consideration. Beachfront villas in this area are now very expensive, not to mention noisy (surf) and lack privacy (anyone walking up the beach can look in) so choosing one set just back from the ocean, that is close to exciting shopping opportunities, restaurants and nightlife is a good move as it affords more privacy and convenience for everyone. Villa Kula is located next to a road so there is some traffic at certain times of day, however from inside the lounge and bedrooms it is barely audible, especially if the TV or music is being played. Previous guests have commented that this is a small price to pay for such a convenient location.
Built on three levels, this contemporary style four bed roomed home is accessed by an over-sized doorway that leads you up a short flight of marble steps into the villa. Villa Kula offers plenty of comfortable indoor and outdoor living spaces and all buildings orientate towards the large 16m x 5 m salt water swimming pool. All rooms, including the lounge and dining area are air-conditioned, enabling you to retreat in comfort during the humid rainy season, which is typically between January & April. The only exception to this is the open poolside bar and BBQ pavilion that was designed to service the poolside.
Pool & Garden Level
The tropical garden that surrounds is home to many varieties of palms, heloconias and colorful plants like the ginger flowers, palms and jepun trees. On this level are all the main living pavilions plus the two poolside suites.
Four Bedroom Suites
Villa Kula has four well appointed air-conditioned bedrooms with built in wardrobes, desks, plus a media room that has its own en suite bathroom (with shower). If required this can be converted into an extra bedroom for only US$ 50/night, and is a favorite for older children. There is a sofa mattress size 2m x 1.60 m in this room and lots of storage space.
The Poolside Suites
The two poolside suites consist of spacious double beds with super comfortable Serta mattresses. The crown of the owners' suite is a super-sized four poster bed with custom made 2.2 meter latex & memory foam mattress and oversized down pillows. The second suite has a 2 meter Serta mattress. Having experienced this firsthand you will soon discover, as I did, that you will be guaranteed an amazingly deep and restful night's sleep during your stay. Every bedroom suite also has ceiling fans, plus Cable TV and DVD player.
Both suites have their own en suite semi open designer bathrooms, with indoor and outdoor courtyard showers, double wash basins, large vanity and large marble bathtubs, with plenty of hot water. There is also a small bale in the owners suite set amongst the garden and an ornamental fountain to add to the pleasure of bathing in this exclusive residence.
The first floor is home to two more spacious air-conditioned bedroom suites and as with the poolside suites both have the same super comfortable Serta latex & memory foam mattresses. These are 2.2 meter and 2 meters wide respectively, the same as the poolside suites. Standard in Villa Kula are the large wardrobe space, desks, Cable TV, DVD, ceiling fan. The enclosed air-conditioned bathrooms have no bathtubs however they are very spacious and have double wash basins and good high showers.
Villa Kula has been built to very high international standards, with some state of the art facilities including Harmon Kardon iPod/MP3 player with built-in speakers, Cable TV. All bedrooms and living areas are connected via the PABX telephone system so it is easy to keep track of everyone.
The large indoor dining and lounge pavilion is also home to a high spec show kitchen. The kitchen island has many drawers and sliding table shelves with integrated lighting, perfect for use as a drinks bar. Next to the island is the dining table, which has seating for eight people. On the other side of the island is a door that leads to the wet kitchen where all food is prepared by the villa cook.
At the east end of this pavilion is the lounge, with has a comfortable three sided sofa wrapped around a large coffee table. The seating faces the garden and all the doors can be opened fully onto the garden. The whole pavilion can be closed and air-conditioned if required.
Behind the lounge is the media room that has its own en suite bathroom (with shower). There is cable TV with a good variety of channels in various languages. If required this room can be converted into an extra bedroom and is a favorite for older children. There is a sofa mattress size 2m x 1.60 m in this room and lots of drawer space.
The Lounge & dining pavilion has sliding doors that fold flat against the columns allowing a good flow of air through and opening the whole pavilion onto the garden, making Villa Kula ideal for both indoor and outdoor entertaining. This is complimented by poolside pavilion that is equipped with a bar and large professional drawer style fridge for cooling your drinks. The BBQ is fitted into the bar and there is a 50 inch TV, plus overhead fans and lots of comfortable seating.
Pool & Garden
Villa Kula has a reasonably sized garden, a great place for the kids to run around within sight of slumbering adults. The 16 meter free form salt water swimming pool has a 2.5 x 2m shallow area for children next to the BBQ pavilion, this steps directly into the main pool which varies in depth between 1.5m to 1.7m, so for children who cannot swim adult supervision and proper flotation devices should be used.
The pool deck runs almost the entire length of the pool and is furnished with four over-sized sun beds, two parasols with build in tables and a cozy round sofa chair. All the mattresses are quick dry foam and covered in durable sunbrella fabrics. This is an area that the whole family will enjoy and the pool is the place where most guests tend to gravitate to and spend their days relaxing either in the BBQ bale or on the pool deck.
Canggu Club Membership
The villa has a membership to The Canggu Club where guests can enjoy all the facilities, including a modern gym, large playing field, 25m Swimming pool, Kids pool, Tennis, Squash, etc. The club has three restaurants and bars. The club is an ideal place for an early morning game of tennis, or your afternoon workouts.
