Villa Batavia (5br)

Bedrooms

The Master Wing houses an upstairs master suite, with a timber floor, sumptuous en-suite bathroom, a large verandah and a small adjoining study room with a desk. Downstairs is another capacious master suite incorporating a pillared verandah and a garden bathroom fitted with a bathtub and outdoor shower.

The Guest Wing presents two ground floor bedrooms. One of the en-suite bathrooms is characterised by an open-air shower, and the other by an eye-catching stained glass window.

Every suite in the villa is different, and all of the en-suite bathrooms are air-conditioned with timber floors, together with non-slip acid marble floors in the walk-in showers. Guests are in for a treat with the provision of four poster beds crafted from aged teak and reproduction pedestal washbasins. Furthermore, the master bathrooms boast opulent copper bathtubs.
Living and Dining

The 60-square metre, living and dining room is positioned on the upper floor in close proximity to the modern and fully equipped, state-of-the-art kitchen.

The living area presents a home theatre fitted with a large screen TV/DVD player. It is furnished with deeply cushioned sofas, chairs, and original chandeliers from Solo City in Java. Guests will relish the stunning views of clear open skies over the neighbouring Balinese rooftops, temples, palm trees and, on a clear day, the Island’s distant volcanoes. This delightful room is cross ventilated by the sea breezes that blow through the shuttered windows, which are further characterised by bevelled glass. Alternatively guests can close the windows for air-conditioned comfort. The dining experience, meanwhile, is enhanced with the finest white bone china crockery and silver plated cutlery.
Cocktail Lounge

A favourite area with guests is the upstairs cocktail bar complete with a mirrored antique buffet, mood lighting and a comfortable upholstered sofa and chairs.
There is also a computer for guest use.
The owners have paid a lot of attention to the wine list and are proud to present an impressive selection of fine wines from around the world.

FACILITIES

Reception Hall

Guests will enter the villa through a magnificent reception hall, located on the ground floor of the central building. Furnished with rattan planter chairs and sofas and complemented by parlour palms, this regal room opens straight onto the swimming pool. The splendid floor is composed of black and white granite tiles laid to form a traditional, diagonal chequerboard pattern.

Garden and Pool

Villa Batavia is set within a beautiful walled garden complete with an 18-metre freeform swimming pool that is reminiscent of a river pool. There is also a separate children’s pool complete with a bridge across to an island. This lovely area is planted with fruit trees, fragrant frangipanis and ferns, complemented by two waterfalls and a large rock wall with a water cascade.

Every need has been considered and a guest washroom is available for pool users, accessible from the garden. A secure parking area provides space for motorbikes and two cars.

Steam Room and Spa

On the ground floor of the Master Wing is an ornate Moroccan-style steam room with colourful mosaic tiles, a domed roof, built-in bench seating, and an enticing, two-tiered, coldwater fountain in the centre.

Traditionally, Moroccan baths are places to meet and enjoy conversation, so the temperature is therefore not too hot. The aromatic steam opens the pores, cleanses the skin and helps to relax aching muscles.

Next to the steam room is an air-conditioned massage room with a massage couch and amenities.

SERVICES

Food and Beverage

Villa Batavia’s two top class chefs can prepare anything from snacks up to five-course gourmet dinners, or other requests as required.
A full international menu is available with a broad choice of complimentary breakfasts ranging from hearty American to Continental or Indonesian, as well as a Healthy option.

The full lunch and dinner service is a dining delight where guests can enjoy all manner of food service in a choice of relaxing environments. Guests can opt to dine in the comfort of the air-conditioned Dining Room; the dining table can accommodate large groups, and is also the perfect setting for a formal dinner party.

Alternatively, for a more intimate or casual experience, the balcony and verandah in the master wing are lovely spots for couples to enjoy breakfast, lunch or dinner together. Additionally, for a romantic dinner experience, the staff can set up a candlelit table in the garden.

The fine-dining menu includes appetisers such as spicy chicken pomelo salad, prawn rolls and chicken teriyaki salad, while soups include pumpkin ginger and tom yam gong. This can be followed by dishes such as peppered tuna, seared scallop, red chilli crab, honeyed chicken, sweet soy pork ribs, Australian beef tenderloin, Viennese schnitzel and lobster thermidor, complete with stunning presentation and exemplary service. Finally, the wicked dessert menu presents pannacotta, crème brülée, chocolate cake, cappuccino caramel and more.

The villa also provides a realistically-priced beverage selection, offering both alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks, together with the owners’ carefully selected collection of fine wines from around the world. Additionally, Villa Batavia offers complimentary tea and coffee.

Staff

Villa Batavia is supported by a carefully selected team of highly trained, friendly staff who will do their best to ensure that their guests experience a truly enjoyable stay in Bali.

The team is headed by Jun, the villa manager, who will oversee and coordinate the staff and property, and is available to assist guests during their stay.

The team also includes two in-house chefs, butlers, housekeepers, gardeners, pool attendants and security guards operating on a 24-hour shift basis.

The chefs are highly accomplished in the preparation of both local and international cuisine, and are responsible for all the market shopping, in accordance with the needs and the whims of the guests. The housekeepers fulfil all of the housekeeping duties while also taking care of the daily laundry.

Baby-sitting and spa services and the facilities of a car and driver are also available.

LOCATION

Villa Batavia rests within Seminyak’s ‘Golden Triangle’—a safe, up-market neighbourhood that is home to some of the classiest properties on the island.

The location is close to the prestigious Oberoi and Legian Hotels, and convenient for all of Bali’s main shops, malls and tourist attractions, in addition to a plenitude of lavish spas, chic lounges and vibrant nightspots. Furthermore, the villa is only 20 minutes’ drive from Bali’s international airport.

The property is just a short stroll from the sweeping Petitenget Beach, which is well-known for its world-class surf breaks, panoramic coastline views and picture-perfect sunsets. A wide choice of world-renowned, fine dining restaurants, including the famous Ku Dé Ta, Hu’u, Living Room, La Lucciola, Sarong, Breeze at The Samaya, and Blossom at Sentosa, are all less than a kilometre away, and the area also boasts a plentitude of designer boutiques.

Nearby places of interest include one of Bali’s most sacred Hindu temples, Pura Petitenget, the fourth largest temple in Bali, where some of the most spectacular Balinese ceremonies may often be witnessed.

The location of Villa Batavia offers easy access up to the mountains and rice terraces on the western slopes; it is one hour from the famous cultural and artistic town of Ubud, and just five minutes’ from the start of the Sunset Route, gateway to the eastern side of the island.

The nearby ‘Nirwana Bali Golf Course’ designed by Greg Norman was voted the number 1 golf course in Asia and lies beside the dramatic, waved-lashed sea temple of Tanah Lot. For horse lovers, the ‘Umalas Equestrian Centre’ is just a few kilometres away, while tennis and squash amenities are available at a number of the neighbouring hotels.
