Hidden from view along a quiet side street, equidistant from Seminyak’s buzzy boutique-and-restaurant-packed ‘Eat Street’ and the expansive Petitenget Beach, is the city-slick, three-bedroom Villa Eshara III.
This single-storey property is totally private and self-contained with its own entrance, a living and dining room with open-plan kitchenette, a flat-lawned garden and a 10-metre swimming pool complemented by a timber deck and a deeply cushioned relaxation pavilion.
In this hip and happy haven, guests will find a serious serving of decadent flair. Although the architectural materials are natural and neutral, characterised by soaring roofs and an abundance of glass, the décor and furnishings are colourful, eclectic and sumptuous. From the shimmering glass lamps illuminating the large dining table for 10, to the ethnic artefacts that convey a sense of place, Villa Eshara III’s interiors are the epitome of sleek designer-chic and pared-back luxe.
Bedrooms continue the cool and contemporary concept, presenting king-size beds, funky lamps, dressing areas and wall-mounted TVs. Light bounces from the mirrored walls of the marble-enhanced bathrooms, which are fitted with walk-in rain showers, while the master beckons with an oversized soaking-tub and an additional outdoor shower.
Comfort, slick service and up-to-the-minute facilities are par for the course at this private pleasure pad. Personal butlers, an in-house chef, modern audio-visual equipment and iPod docks, in-villa spa treatments, complimentary WiFi, and a menu of tasty Asian and European cuisine will entice guests with an engaging blend of sensual delights.
Finally, large groups will be happy to learn that Eshara III is one of a group of three villas that can be mixed, matched, united or divided to provide anything from a two-bedroom to an eight-bedroom renting option, all connected by an innovative system of retractable garden walls.
