Space at Bali – Our luxurious villa stay at Seminyak
Located in the heart of buzzy, beautiful Seminyak, in a quiet bylane, a mere 10 minutes walk from the beach, shops and cafes is Space at Bali. A friend’s recommendation led us to book and enjoy a superlative stay at this luxury villa property.
Three of us were in a 2 bedroomed villa and our Jakarta based cousins in the one bedroom villa opposite. it is so glorious that we didn’t feel like going out at all, but you have to…
Each villa property has a pool set in a beautiful tropical garden with sun beds, a cabana with a thatched roof with a large daybed and fan to keep you cool! The walls around the villa give you privacy, and entry is through a Balinese wooden carved foor. Our butler Bagus, ensured our every wish was his command! We never had to lift a finger! When he found me making coffee in the coffee machine he said – why didn’t you call me....
|Spacious comfortable bedroom|
|The bedroom ceiling|
|The twin vanity bath/shower area|
The living area is open to the pool and garden while the bedrooms have sliding doors. The bedrooms are spacious with high ceilings and provide air conditioned comfort with TVs, a day bed, desk etc and lots of lights – great for my late night reading! There’s a walk -through dressing room and a spacious luxe indoor outdoor bathroom section at the rear of the villa.
And the food! We booked a package inclusive of breakfast and what a breakfast it was – the usual suspects and lots more including smoked salmon! Freshly prepared in our kitchen and served when we want to eat. (I could really get used to this).
We ordered room service (or should I say villa service) from their extensive menu which included Indian cuisine. You can request a private poolside BBQ (seafood) or a romantic dinner on your own poolside deck!
Thoughtful touches abound – the cane bag in your dressing room includes 2 lovely sarongs! We used them when we spent the day at Potato Head Beach Club. Hand sanitiser and mosquito repellent spray are provided.
There’s lots of complimentary mineral water, and a fully stocked fridge (instead of a tiny mini bar).
Space at Bali consists of 10 pool villas from one bedroom, two bedroom to three bedroom. Ideal for a family or a group of friends holidaying together.
Strongly recommended. I’m going back and spending more time lazing at the villa as soon as I can. Garuda now has a Mumbai Bali direct flight. You can also go via Singapore or KL.
