Living Areas

Living pavillion

The pool-edge living pavilion is open on four sides and features a soaring alang-alang thatched roof supported by coconut-wood pillars above a floor of Palimanan stone inlaid with polished teak. Cooled by ceiling fans and gentle breezes, the living pavilion features two comfortable seating areas. A linked sound system provides music in the living, dining and games room from speakers discreetly positioned high in the roof.

Dining pavilion

Across the koi pond is a second open-sided, fan-cooled pavilion and fabulous entertainment space. Taking centre-stage under pendulous lamps and paddle fans suspended from the vaulted roof is an extendable table that seats up to 18 on designer-chic upholstered chairs. The adjacent black marble bar provides a more casual place to congregate in front of the well-equipped, open-air slate-floored service kitchen.

TV room/study

Separated from the dining area by sliding opaque glass doors is an air-conditioned TV room where a long, deeply cushioned bench and a big lazy chair encourage curling up with a good book or watching a movie on the 48-inch satellite TV. Doubling as a study, the room is equipped with a computer and printer.

Games room

A magnet for kids of all ages, the semi-open-air games room located above the three guest bedrooms enjoys beautiful rice-field views. Not that anyone will be looking when there are so many distractions – pool table, table tennis, media area with a 52-inch TV and DVD player, and a computer with internet access. There’s even a kitchenette and shower room for those who can’t drag themselves away.

Outdoor living

The immaculately maintained garden is dominated by a dramatic free-form swimming pool, with a swim-under waterfall and shallow tier stepping down into the deepest section, immediately beneath the poolside balé. Shaded by a thatched roof, this elevated, two-storey pavilion offers spectacular rice-field views from the top. A circular timber deck rests beside the pool, complete with sun loungers and umbrellas. At the far end of the garden is a walled grass court suitable for playing badminton, tennis, volleyball, football and other games.

Villa Asta – Seminyak 5 bedroom beach villa, Bali Elite Havens

Villa Asta weaves its magic the moment you walk through the entrance and glimpse the pool, shimmering beyond a waterfall, framed within a circular opening in the wall. Flowing water features are everywhere; in addition to the dramatic free-form swimming pool at the villa's heart, there’s a 12-metre plunge pool next to the master bedroom pavilion, linked by an expanse of koi ponds to the two open-sided living and dining pavilions.

This is a fantastic villa for families – it was designed by internationally renowned architect Guy Morgan for two friends seeking a place for their young families to holiday together, so there’s plenty to amuse kids (of all ages) as well as lots of welcome grown-up space. And parents can relax and enjoy their holiday knowing their children are having a great time within the secure villa grounds.

The main pool provides plenty of entertainment, with shallow tiers for wallowing and a deep section beneath a two-storey thatched balé with a viewing platform looking out over the rice fields. At the far end of the pool the huge upper-floor games room also promises hours of fun, with its pool table, table tennis, home theatre and computer. Just behind is a badminton / volleyball court - a complete kids’ zone!

Below the games room, three twin bedrooms can be converted to kings making them equally suitable for adults (each also has two handy roll-away beds for extra young guests). Providing a calm environment at the other end of the villa is the two-bedroomed master pavilion with its own large plunge pool.

With so much on offer, there’s little call to leave the villa – especially because among the delightfully professional staff is an excellent chef adept at whipping up meals that would give some of Bali’s famed restaurants a run for their money. But it’s good to know Batubelig Beach is only a short walk away, and a car and driver is available for an additional cost to whisk guests to nearby Seminyak, or further afield to explore the island.
