As is their standard, the villa has been built with the very best of amenities and to the highest standards. The proportions of all of the living areas and bedrooms are generous, and the interior furnishings have been tastefully integrated throughout, with comfortable white over sized rattan armchairs, and lounges. The villa owners have lived in Bali for over 12 years and their very personal sense of style and appreciation of the various Indonesian materials and local crafts are tastefully reflected throughout the villa.

Guests enter through a set of traditional double Balinese doors opening onto a Aling Aling wall behind which is a small fish pond with a Barong face water feature.

One pool opposite the living area is kidney shaped and has 6 pool deck chairs and a cushioned Pool Bale. The second smaller rectangle pool divides the living Pavilion from the master bedroom pavilion.
