Getting to Villa Babar incorporates a delightful journey through traditional villages, via quiet country roads, wooded valleys, causeways across rivers and, finally, a simple track that winds through the swaying fields of rice.
Upon arrival, your senses will be awakened by the purity, spirit and timelessness of an extraordinary landscape. You will be greeted by welcoming Balinese smiles, the fragrance of tropical flowers and the constant sound of the waves.The villa is entered via an impressive open-air living room, complete with a soaring roof and an upper gallery on either side. Ocean breezes keep this welcoming living space delightfully fresh and cool.
The two-storey villa is characterised by white Yogya stone walls, cream terrazzo tiled floors, limewashed timbers, and a colonnaded walkway on either side, on both ground and upper floor levels. A single-storey guest wing, linked to the main building, presents two guestrooms and a media room. The style is modern and minimalist, cleverly blending sophisticated elegance with the ambience of the setting. The architectural concept reveals comfort and simplicity, while the interiors unobtrusively introduce natural materials, fabrics, and colours. There isn`t anything ostentatious about this villa; the chic simplicity ensures that nothing detracts from the incredible view.
It is simply furnished with large and comfortable cream sofas, ottomans, and a pair of carved coffee tables from Timor, together with a primitive Timorese wooden statue. A floating Yogya stone staircase leads to the upper floor, and a colourful framed patchwork of painted wood brings a splash of colour to the wall. This tropical room is open on two sides - on the seaward side is the garden, swimming pool and the ocean, while on the inland side is an ornamental pond presided over by a ‘floating` 2.5-metre-high Buddha statue.
The open plan dining room adjoins the feature kitchen, and has sliding glass doors on three sides, designed to be opened for a semi alfresco dining experience or closed when it becomes too breezy. A teak dining table, complete with stool seating, can accommodate up to 18 guests. With fabulous views of the garden, swimming pool and ocean, the dining room is complemented by mood lighting at night, and serenaded constantly by the rhythmic crashing of the waves on the beach below.
Open plan and adjacent to the dining room, Villa Babar`s immaculate, designer kitchen reveals a discriminating taste for functional beauty and cutting-edge style. It is fully equipped with an imported oven and five-burner hob, a double-door refrigerator, a built-in wine cellar and wine fridge, a cappuccino/espresso machine, a microwave, and everything else that the chef needs in order to prepare delicious meals in accordance with your whims. This bright and airy kitchen is further enhanced by a sliding glass door at the far end overlooking the ricefields. A wet kitchen is tucked away out of sight at the back, linked by a hatch.
There are gardens on all sides of the villa, including the Ganesha garden, and the Sumba garden, which is distinguished by a cluster of enchanting statues from Sumba. The entrance garden showcases an ornamental pond, presided over by a towering Buddha statue. The front garden is dominated by the swimming pool and a helipad rests to one side, for guests who choose to arrive in style with a thrilling helicopter ride along Bali`s dramatic coastline. The garden is just footsteps away from the beach on an elevated buff, 13 metres above sea level. The beach is good for surfing although the strong currents make it dangerous for swimming. A walk along the beach at sunset is delightful.
