ABOUT VILLA KINARA

With a prime location in Seminyak’s prestigious Oberoi enclave, the six-bedroom Villa Kinara is perfectly positioned for Bali’s best-known restaurants, bars and boutiques as well as the island’s famed sunset beaches. Unlike many Seminyak villas, Villa Kinara offers guests a luxurious sense of space as well as lavish comfort and privacy.

Delightfully original, the villa’s architectural design draws on the Indonesian archipelago’s rich heritage and abundance of natural materials. Paying heed to traditional Balinese home layouts, Villa Kinara’s accommodation is spread over three pavilions, with alang-alang (thatch) roofing and ironwood shingles. In a contemporary interpretation of the old timber joglo and limasan houses of Java, teakwood is richly incorporated throughout the villa’s design, showcasing supreme craftsmanship and creating a depth of character typical of Balinese style. The vast living space is defined by towering wooden pillars created from trees selected by the owner’s architect; teak-embellished ceilings, and Sulawesi floors in the bedroom suites. The Dutch-inspired window and door shutters are another interesting feature as is the incorporation of other natural materials including Palimanan stone, Yogyakarta lavastone, hand-crafted terrazzo, rattan, bamboo and coconut shell.

In keeping with the enviro-architectural theme, the chic furniture, including the dining table (a magnificent slab of teak and a talking point in itself), have been designed exclusively for Villa Kinara. Sitting effortlessly among these traditional materials are all the comforts of convenient 21st Century living: large flat-screen TVs and home entertainment systems, WiFi throughout, and two superbly equipped kitchens.

Two other important Balinese traditions share the limelight with the beautiful design of Villa Kinara. Community spirit abounds in the many social gathering spaces scattered throughout the villa, and hospitality from the heart is offered by a team of charming, well-trained, willing staff who are dedicated to creating a holiday haven for their guests.

Villa Kinara is the perfect residence for multiple families or groups of friends. Parties exceeding 12 people have the opportunity to take over the neighbouring, mirror image four-bedroom Villa Kinare, providing a total of ten bedrooms.

BEDROOMS

Villa Kinara’s bedrooms are particularly spacious with ensuite bathrooms, wide, covered terraces, plentiful wardrobe space, and generous indoor and outdoor seating areas. Polished teakwood flooring, designer furniture, fascinating artifacts and thoughtful lighting create delightfully individual interiors, and plush American Pillo beds dressed with 100% cotton bed linen ensure a good night’s sleep. The rooms are individually air-conditioned but those who prefer to embrace the tropical climate can opt to turn on the ceiling fans and open the shutters instead.

Master Bedroom

The master bedroom suite is palatial, occupying the entire top floor of the alang-alang pavilion. Running its full length and overlooking the pool and garden is a massive terrace of wide-planked teakwood, with a large (1.10m x 2.3m) cushion-covered daybed and four chairs of burnt orange plaited leather grouped around a coffee table. On one side of the king-size bed is a taupe upholstered sofa and ottoman with mirror panel above; on the other side is an elegant reading chair and another ottoman. Facing the bed and flanked by shuttered windows and doors is a media console with 40inch TV and home entertainment system. A red lacquered desk and piebald cowhide chair sit alongside floating shelves that house an array of books and decorative pieces.

A mirrored door opens onto a large dressing room and a second door leads to the ensuite bathroom. This is another enormous space with floors and walls of terrazzo, huge mirrors and a vanity counter with double basins. Beyond, is a breezy semi-open area with a Knief bathtub set before potted palms and a large walk-in, wood-lined section with his ‘n’ hers rain showers.

Alang – alang pavilion guest bedrooms

Below the master bedroom suite are two guest bedrooms. Slightly smaller than the others, yet still larger than many a multi-starred hotel room, they are each well furnished with king bed, chaise longue, upholstered seating, writing desk, a wall of wardrobes and sliding doors opening onto a huge shared terrazzo terrace furnished with a generous daybed, just steps from the well-tended garden. The ensuite terrazzo bathrooms feature walk-in showers with windows onto foliage.

 

Main pavilion guest bedrooms

Occupying the second level of the main pavilion are two further guest suites – spacious, light-filled rooms equipped with reading chair and footstool, large desk and chair, sofa, blanket chest, and king size bed (one of which can be separated into twin beds). The ensuite bathrooms are light and airy with single basin, walk-in rain shower and, in one, a bathtub surrounded by duckboard and pebbles. Accessed by a staircase from the living area, these bedrooms open onto a terrazzo terrace with a distinctive ironwood shingle roof offering yet more space to relax upon seats of chocolate and brick red plaited leather.

 

Small pavilion bedroom/media room

Three steps down from the terrazzo terrace, with a daybed outside its glazed doors, sits the sixth bedroom – a beautiful room with particularly rich teakwood patterned floors that also doubles as a media room. Before a wall of bookshelves, is a king bed that can be converted to twin beds. A 3m suedette sofa faces a 52inch flat-screen TV and home entertainment system. Adjacent is an ensuite shower room.

LOCATION

Tucked away at the end of a cul-de-sac within an exclusive residential enclave behind the Oberoi Hotel, Villa Kinara is well placed for guests to enjoy the many attractions of Bali’s famed Seminyak area. It’s only a five-minute stroll to the beach with its surfers, sun-loungers and string of cafes and bars for sunset cocktails. A little further are the smart boutiques, spas restaurants and nightspots of Jalan Laksmana (also called Jalan Kayu Aya) and Jalan Raya Seminyak.
