Villa Vitodi One

3 br  |  from USD 300 Villa Vitodi is a peaceful oasis of two contemporary villas hidden in the heart of Petitenget, a safe upmarket area on Bali?s south-western coast. This region is the most visited part of the island for both tourism and business purposes, and is just twenty five minutes' drive from the international airport, and convenient for all of the main shops, tourist attractions and vibrant nightspots.

The villas are conveniently located just a few minutes? Walk from the magnificent Seminyak beach, renowned for its world-class surf breaks and panoramic coastline views; a playground of the rich and famous, it is the place where the local and expatriate communities gather every evening to enjoy the legendary sunsets. A wide choice of internationally acclaimed restaurants, including the famous KuDéTa, Hu?u and La Lucciola are also all within easy walking distance.

The three-bedroom Villa 1 at Villa Vitodi is entered via an impressive hand-carved Balinese gate. Stepping stones lead across a smooth lawn towards a small ornamental pond flanked by bulrushes. This rests in front of a Balinese Hindu feature known as the ?aling aling, a short screen wall designed to protect the property from troublesome and malign influences, because evil spirits have great difficulty in turning corners. Guests will now find themselves in a walled courtyard garden boasting a charming, deeply cushioned relaxation pavilion known as a ?balé bengong? beside an enticing 8 x 2.5 metre lap pool.

The garden is planted with heliconia and a sweet scented frangipani tree. The wide lawn offers an attractive spot for sunbathing and is furnished with three sunloungers, while the remainder of the area is dominated by a large thatched open living and dining pavilion with robust coconut wood pillars and a parquet floor. Cooled by gentle breezes and ceiling fans, the style is minimalist and modern and the décor is crisp and fresh.

The villa is characterised by broad white Palimanan stone pillars and thick walls, and the sunny open living area is equipped with a stereo music system and tastefully adorned with local artefacts. Contemporary furnishings include daybeds accessorised with colourful cushions and a low table; ceiling fans and bamboo roller blinds are fitted for the comfort of the guests.

The main building, with its tiled roof, is located adjacent to the living pavilion and is also open to the garden. This building features a sparkling grey terrazzo floor and houses an open plan dining area furnished with a chunky dining table with ten chairs. Immediately next to this area is a self-contained kitchen, complete with gas hob, microwave and fridge, and flanked by a serving counter with a large hatch.

The large air-conditioned master bedroom is located downstairs and boasts a warm parquet floor, a four-poster queen size bed swathed in muslin drapes, a dressing table, mirror, bedside tables and lamps, and satellite TV and DVD player. The room is light and airy with windows on two sides, and the style is simple and uncluttered. The dressing area, conveniently positioned between the bedroom and the en-suite bathroom, is equipped with hairdryer and safe deposit box, and offers plenty of storage space.

The adjoining open-air bathroom features a sunken terrazzo bathtub, a shower with a pebbled floor, a toilet and a washbasin.
An additional guest washroom and toilet is also located on the ground floor with its own private garden, accented by pebbles and cascading plants
