Individual Compound Villas in Bali, Villas near the beach
To create their exceptional villa, the owners of Villa Kudus carefully sourced traditional wooden pavilions from the famous joglo-building region in Java, from which the villa takes its name. Some of these unique hand-made structures are over 150 years old and have been superbly restored and refurbished, providing the villa with a timeless stateliness and majesty.
The devotion that has gone into crafting this beautiful villa can also be seen in the tasteful artworks and antiques which have been sourced from all over Asia and as far afield as Russia. These, along with comfortably plush sofas, ornate chandeliers and oriental rugs, give each space in the villa a sumptuous opulence. Also boasting modern conveniences such as its state-of-the-art kitchen, coffee machines, flat-screen televisions, the villa offers a perfect blend of old and new.
Villa Kudus offers guests space aplenty to relax in private or come together socially; be it on a lounger by the pool, in a shaded spot in the garden, being treated to a massage at the poolside bale or dining alfresco under the stars. And wherever guests chose to unwind, the villa’s attentive and friendly staff will be there to take care of their every need.
It only takes a few minutes to walk to Berawa Beach with its world-renowned surf and beautiful sunsets. And for the more ardent walker a stroll along the glistening volcanic sands will bring you to some of Bali’s most iconic restaurants: Ku De Ta and La Lucciola among them. But if walking isn’t your thing, staff can arrange a car and driver at a very reasonable daily rate, and the bright lights of Seminyak are just fifteen minutes away. Guests at Villa Kudus also have complimentary membership of the Canggu Club, Bali’s most prestigious sports and leisure club, for the duration of their stay.
The owners of this magnificent villa have a passion for mountain climbing and the five bedrooms – all of which are furnished with king-size beds, offer both air-conditioning and ceiling fans, feature hand selected pieces of art, merbau-wood flooring topped with Asian rugs, and have opulent ensuites – are named after famous Indonesian peaks.
A wonderful sense of light and space pervades the enormous living pavilion at Villa Kudus, which upholds the villa’s benchmark of style and taste with exquisite antiques and ornaments from around the globe. Encased with glass doors, this pavilion can be opened up to allow guests to luxuriate in the balmy tropical air, or can be closed for air-conditioned comfort. At the centre of the pavilion, below a magnificent pair of chandeliers, two oversized sofas and four armchairs encircle a coffee table crafted from recycled boat timber. Above, wooden beams softly draped with flowing white fabric support the intricately carved ceiling which represents the seven levels of heaven. A teak dining table for ten stands to one side of the pavilion, adjacent to the bar area. To the other side, a freestanding bookshelf separates the television area where movies can be enjoyed on a 46-inch plasma screen from an antique daybed.
Cocktail hour can be any time of the day at Villa Kudus. The bar has a double fridge, a Nespresso coffee machine and ample glassware. The piece de la resistance here is the dumbwaiter, which transports food from the kitchen below.
The kitchen at Villa Kudus is lined with walls of Indian stone. Two glass doors make it a bright, cool and airy space. Guests can comfortably perch on one of the five bar stools for an informal meal or snack whilst enjoying the serenity of the garden. The kitchen is equipped with gas and electric ovens, a giant refrigerator, expansive stovetop, a wall of built-in glass cupboards and all the mod cons that you would expect to find in such a well-appointed villa.
On the stone terrace adjacent to the living pavilion, an outdoor dining table for ten is ideally located for alfresco dining, whether it be a long lazy lunch or a delicious dinner under the stars. Take advantage of the barbecue here for some fresh grilled seafood or a traditional satay.
Poolside relaxation at Villa Kudus can be enjoyed in the covered bale – an excellent spot for a massage – or on one of the ergonomically designed sun loungers on the verandas of all the guest bedrooms. And in front of the master bedroom, surrounded by a wonderful array of tropical plants, is an L-shaped couch and a coffee table perfectly shaded by a large umbrella and perfectly situated for some quiet downtime.
