If you crave space, peace and privacy then indulge yourself in this villa. Named after the
ancient Sanskrit word for ‘inner peace’, this five-bedroom villa has been designed to encourage
guests to relax, unwind and dissolve the stresses of everyday life in a beautiful tropical setting on
Bali’s south-east coast.
A creation of renowned Malaysian architect, Cheong Yew Kuan (Aman Resorts, Como Shambala) and
professional landscaper Trevor Hilliar, this unique property draws on contemporary and traditional
influences to deliver a comfortable and stylish home respectful of its natural and cultural surrounds.
Resting on an impressive 7,400 square metres in the sleepy seaside village of Ketewel, guests are
privileged to an enormous amount of space. Vast rolling lawns encircle the villa with lavish gardens
and water features adding to the sense of grandeur. A stunning 25-metre infinity pool with adjoining
entertainment pavilion offers ocean views, as does the massive master bedroom.
Large open-air living spaces with high vaulted ceilings enable guests to freely enjoy the balmy
Balinese climate, inhale the fragrant smells of the garden and marvel at the tiny birds and water hens
that twitter and flutter throughout the grounds. Thai silk furnishings and a collection of Asian antiques
reflect the owner’s exquisite taste and style that has gone into making each room special and unique.
Without a doubt, a standout feature of this home is the spacious restaurant-grade kitchen with its
gleaming black granite worktops where the experienced chef will happily prepare meals to tantalise
your taste-buds. With a team of dedicated staff, including a private butler, the villa consistently
delivers five-star service, whether providing cocktails by the pool or arranging deluxe in-house spa
This appealing combination of space, style, service, peace and privacy makes the property the
idyllic setting for a wedding, party or special celebration, as well as a blissful retreat for families,
couples and groups of friends.
Upon entering traditional Balinese gateway, the grandeur of this magnificent
property is immediately apparent. From here, a wooden bridge traverses a large lotus pond
overlooking the manicured sprawling lawns that extend all the way up to the main house.
To the right of the lotus pond rests a private two-bedroom guesthouse with lounge and self-contained
kitchen. The principal residence, located to the rear of the property, features a master suite with
ocean views, TV lounge, kitchen, two guest rooms and a large open living and dining pavilion that
opens onto the rolling lawns.
A separate entertainment pavilion with an outdoor dining terrace sits next to the 25-metre infinity
pool, offering great views of the ocean across the neighbouring rice fields.
The impressive air-conditioned master suite is housed in its own pavilion separated from the
living and dining area and the kitchen by fish ponds and frangipani trees garlanded with
orchids. Stepping stones lead to a set of carved wooden doors that open to present a
welcoming Buddha statue and private Palimanan stone terrace.
Glass doors reveal the suite’s TV lounge furnished with two grey-silk sofas and floor cushions
for watching movies on the large flat-screen satellite TV with DVD player. Adjacent to the
lounge, a small reading room enclosed by glass appears to float above a fishpond, offering
glimpses of the swimming pool through an opening in the surrounding coral-limestone wall.
The bedroom itself, with its vaulted sirap-wood ceiling, dark teak floors, king-size bed and
glass sliding doors, opens onto a private deck overlooking lawns dotted with coconut palms
through to the crashing waves in the distance.
A huge dressing area divides the bedroom from the semi-open ensuite bathroom featuring a
large rectangular terrazzo bathtub, his and her vanities and walk-in rain shower. White
shutters open onto a private garden bathroom with an outdoor shower encircled by six stone
pillars and soft maiden-hair ferns.
Main house guest rooms 1 & 2
The brightly decorated air-conditioned guest rooms, located in a separate structure adjacent
to the dining area, have been designed for children but can easily accommodate adults. One
of the rooms has a queen-size bed with large flat-screen satellite TV and DVD player, while
the other has twin beds and a small outdoor balcony surrounded by a lily pond. A corridor
with built-in wardrobes connects the two rooms as well providing access to the shared bathroom. Featuring grey slate walls and floors, with an indoor terrazzo bathtub and walk-in shower, the bathroom also has an outdoor shower with a cascading water-wall feature. Both rooms open onto a shared wooden deck with a daybed for relaxing.
Guest house rooms 1 & 2
100 metres from the main house rests the two-bedroom guesthouse with its traditional alangalang
roof. Light and airy with cream walls and teak floors, both air-conditioned rooms
feature queen-sized beds with batik throws, garden bathrooms with indoor shower and glass
sliding doors that open onto a wooden deck bordering the immaculately manicured lawns.
One of the bedrooms has a window seat to soak up the sun while the other has a daybed for
those inclined to take an afternoon nap. Between the two bedrooms is a small living area
with a self-contained kitchen and breakfast bar with bar stools.
Living and dining pavilion
Guests are officially welcomed to the villa in the large open-sided living and dining
pavilion which is cooled by ceiling fans hanging from high vaulted ceilings above polished
terrazzo floors. Making the most of its incredible surroundings this area overlooks the rolling
lawns and striking silver-blue Madagascan palm trees.
The living area features low white-cushioned sofas, two wooden daybeds tastefully decorated
with red silk cushions and a scattering of interesting artefacts. The dining area presents a
solid teak table (seats 12) and is perfect for a Balinese banquet.
To the rear of the living pavilion is the air-conditioned TV lounge which features a large flatscreen
satellite TV, DVD player and surround-sound system (which also feeds the adjoining
living and dining area). For those that would rather chill out and read a book, the room opens
onto a lovely timber deck overlooking a fish pond.
One of the most important rooms in the house – the kitchen – sits behind the TV lounge. The
kitchen is also accessed by a long, brushed-concrete promenade displaying a fine collection of
Asian antiquities. Featuring polished granite work tops, commercial stove, wok burner and
lots of cupboard space it is perhaps one of the biggest private kitchens on the island. The
kitchen also opens onto a timber deck and fish pond that is home to three auspicious Arwana
The enormous entertainment pavilion, one level down from the living and dining area and presenting
ocean views, is the ultimate poolside retreat. With an alang-alang thatched roof and Palimanan stone
floor, this room is cooled by ceiling fans and the natural sea breeze. The pavilion includes a billiard
table, TV, DVD and stereo system, sofa, polished concrete bar with bar stools and washroom. The
rear wall of the bar (including the fridge and water cooler) is painted with a batik motif to match the
cushions on the lounge suite, adding a sense of fun and vibrancy.
A highlight of the villa is the landscaped garden. Designed by one of Bali’s best landscape
architects, Trevor Hilliar, the rolling manicured lawns, running water features, exotic trees, palms and
flowering plants complement the villa beautifully to give it its unique sense of space.
The lawn area directly below the living and dining pavilion is larger than a football field and is a great
area for the kids to run around in, or to host a wedding party. Not only do children love this space; so
do the native birds, lizards and butterflies.
Keen swimmers will relish the 25-metre infinity pool with its spectacular ocean views, and there’s a
shallow section for children and those who would rather just lie back and relax. The poolside deck,
furnished with sunloungers and a white-curtained daybed provides the perfect setting to laze the
days away. For dinner parties under the stars ask Gede, the villa manager, to set up the large stone
table (seats 14) on the outdoor terrace, which also features a large standing menhir stone.
The villa prides itself on its high level of service. All staff have been professionally trained and
are well-qualified in providing exceptional Balinese hospitality.
Please don’t hesitate to talk to Gede, your villa manager, to discuss any specific requirements.
