What we Discovered at Sun Island Villas, Seminyak
You drive along the busy JL Seminyak or the main road, and turn into the villas. It is when you go through the doors that you are amazed by the lush and peaceful gardens after the manic traffic outside. Welcoming bright orange umbrellas and sun lounges surround the main pool .Weary travellers can soak up the sun while reading the complimentary magazines and having a cocktail. It is here that you find the Sun Café, in the signature colors of black and orange against the backdrop of all of the greenery and some beautiful flowers. Frangipanis are everywhere.
You are then taken down a gardened bath to your villa. Ours is a deluxe suite, and as the door is opened to our home we experience more of the wow factor, starting with our own plunge pool with recliners next to it. On the outdoor verandah are chairs and a table, ideal for outdoor dining or working, even if you are traveling. On the other side of the veranda is a kitchenette. I don’t have any intention of cooking here, as the surrounding cafes are so very good. However, if I choose to have a cooking class, a chef will come to our villa and do a demonstration of n Indonesian dish of our choosing. Pretty clever. It would, of course, also suit people who want to buy some of the amazing produce available in Seminyak and to cook up a storm or have a romantic dinner.
On entering our villa, we are met by black shiny tiles floors and an ultra white large bed. Here sits a dog made of towels that has frangipanis woven through it. Cute factor. We are in Bali. The smoky glass panel behind our bed gives way to a sumptuous spa bath that looks out onto the garden and the plunge pool with its trickling water feature. There is an enormous rain head shower, and again the décor stays true to the chic designing of the villa. Black tiling with crisp white towels and frangipanis – everywhere. There is a separate toilet here as well.
Back in our bedroom there are floor length windows that look onto a stylish little garden that maintains the privacy, with ochre and black wall for privacy. The entire villa is private, meaning swimwear is totally optional here in your own little oasis.
In the bedroom is a large working desk, a flat-screen TV, and a courtesy bowl of fruit and yes, more frangipanis. Our villa is large and measures 130 to 150 square meters, making it significantly bigger than a hotel room, and the cost is more than reasonable. See Sun Island Villas, Seminyak for the latest rates.
