If you are looking for extreme luxury in a 6 bedroom villa Bali, in a prime yet tranquil Seminyak location, you need look no further than the stunning Villa Kinara on the exclusive Villa Kinaree estate. A large property of spectacular beauty, with breathtaking, tropical gardens alongside a wonderfully inviting swimming pool, Villa Kinara combines astonishing aesthetics with incredible comfort.
I would describe the magnificent design of Villa Kinara, perhaps clumsily, as a simply superb modern take on the beautiful colonial villas of the past. Lots of gorgeous polished hardwoods are utilised in beautiful floors, ceilings and columns, fused skilfully with a preponderance of relaxing earth tone furniture and the odd flash of colour. The awe-inspiring interior design perfectly complements the exquisite buildings, as do the utterly delightful, well stocked gardens and the lighting which, at night, accentuates a property that provides a feast for the senses
A great advantage of a luxury villa over, say, a five star hotel tends to be privacy. The property is for your benefit only. There are no other guests to disrupt or disturb your days in paradise when staying at Villa Kinara. Within the secure, reassuring walls of the gated compound all you can see when you look up is (typically) blue sky and the odd fluffy white cloud floating by. Laying on one of the ridiculously comfortable sunbeds by the gorgeous L shaped pool, sheltered from the hot sun by a large parasol and sipping on a cold drink, it’s hard to imagine a more perfect environment in which to relax. The idyllic beauty of the surroundings, the warmth and comfort make it a place that will live long in the memory.
When it comes to choosing a luxury villa in Bali, details really do matter. At Villa Kinara, the attention to detail is second to none. Take, for example, the sleeping experience. Expensive, wonderfully comfortable mattresses with duck down quilts and pillows are adorned with daily laundered bedding made from the finest Egyptian cotton. Quiet, split air-conditioners (with automatic back-up generators to ensure no interruption to cooling in the event of one of Bali’s frequent power-cuts) in large, airy, sumptuous bedrooms provide the perfect environment for a wonderful night’s sleep.
The staff are, of course, more than just a detail. At Villa Kinara, the incredibly helpful and friendly team, led by the villa manager, are taught to be discreet so one’s privacy is unaffected, yet they are immediately available whenever they are needed. Nothing, it seems, is ever too much trouble which is probably why they are repeatedly showered with praise in guests’ glowing reviews of the villa. An on-site chef who offers a delicious selection of both Asian and Western dishes means a quiet night-in doesn’t mean you have to compromise on food. A wonderful breakfast of your choice awaits you when you wake in the morning.
There are so many spots in which to relax in Villa Kinara. Indoor and outdoor living areas boast oversized sofas and daybeds. Deep, beautiful balconies offer quiet sitting areas, perfect to catch up on a bit of reading. Fans outside and air-conditioning inside ensure you are always cooled.
For those who like to be a little more active, while the 14 metre long pool is long enough for you to exercise with a daily swim, there is also a well equipped private gym. A competition standard pool table stands next to the outdoor, but under-cover bar area. There are large flat screen TV’s with a wide selection of international programming from a local cable TV service, as well as DVD players with surround sound on which you can play your favourite movies. High speed wireless internet caters to multiple devices at the same time without any drop off in speed.
Villa Kinara sits behind the famous Oberoi Hotel, in a high-end residential area. The exclusive Ku Dé Ta beach-club bar and restaurant is just five minutes walk away. The rest of Seminyak’s wide array of fine dining eateries and its exclusive boutiques are not much further. Yet, when you are relaxing in the oasis of calm, peaceful opulence that Villa Kinara provides, it feels like they could be a million miles away. But notwithstanding that wonderful sense of splendid isolation, Villa Kinara is conveniently located and easily found, and find it you must if you are looking for a truly special luxury 6 bedroom villa in Bali. You will be delighted that you did.
