This beautiful, very spacious villa on the edge of Sebali Village, a pretty village just outside Ubud, is a luxurious haven from which to enjoy both the peace and the delights of Bali.
Villa Sebali is just 15 minute’s drive from the centre of Ubud, the cultural and artistic heart of Bali. All on good roads, half the drive is through typical villages, beautiful rice fields and tropical forest, and half past interesting art galleries, antique and craft shops, and restaurants. Ubud is about one and a quarter hours drive from the airport.
The house is approached by a tree fern-shaded path leading from the front courtyard with space for three or four cars, over an ornamental pool and into the main building.
Dining Area – spacious and equipped for up to 12 at table. It is open to the garden at one side and has two steps down to the living area.
At the side is the Kitchen – fully equipped with large fridge-freezer and permanent chilled drinking water.
Living Area – an enormous room open to the garden with ample seating and many art works
All the above areas have rich terra-cotta coloured floor tiles, a lovely combination of warmth for the eye and coolness for the room.
Extra Guest cloakroom and WC next to the Living Area.
Stairs lead from the living area to Sky Bedroom Suite – vast, with a fantastic cathedral ceiling and flower-edged terraces facing all four points of the compass with views to die for!. A large dressing area leads to the bathroom which is partly open air with wash basin, WC, bath, separate shower. One of its four terraces is covered and has seating for relaxing and admiring the garden and view.
From the living area a lobby leads to the south wing with Forest Bedroom Suite – equipped with twin beds which can also be joined to make one king size bed. The dressing area leads to the shower room with wash basin and separate WC.
A door leads through to the Library Room – an enchanting rotunda which can also be reached directly by steps from the garden. Equipped with flat screen TV, books, games and comfortable seating, this room can either be used as a sitting room for the Forest Bedroom, or as a communal room for all guests.
Again from the living area, a short path leads over the lotus pool to the independent Sunset Bedroom Suite – this is another generous room with cathedral ceiling and a queen sized bed. The spacious dressing area leads through to the bathroom with basin, WC, shower and garden. It has its own pretty patio.
Across the courtyard and opposite the library is another independent building Sunrise Bedroom Suite – as the name suggests, this huge room with its magnificent ceiling and king size bed faces east, towards Mt Agung, and has double doors opening onto a raised deck shaded by a flower-festooned pergola. Steps lead down to the pool and courtyard. There is a big dressing area leading through to the biggest bathroom of all which, again, is partly open to the sky and has its own garden. It is equipped with bath, basin, shower and separate WC.
All the bedrooms have mosquito nets and full air-conditioning, though the house is designed to optimise cooling: all the rooms are shaded by the deep eaves of the alang-alang roofs, and big windows allow refreshing air to flow through freely. There are ceiling fans in all rooms including the living areas.
Additional beds can be supplied, and there is also a very large comfortable daybed in the living area which would make an excellent extra bed. Guests who like the idea of sleeping under the stars could even sleep on the bale
The Basement is reached by steps from the courtyard and is a very large room with table tennis table, and space to store extra furniture, suitcases etc..
Staff Accommodation is situated under the front garden, cleverly cooled by its grass roof. It has its own entrance from the front courtyard car parking area.
The villa is built on almost 3000sq.m. (3/4 acre) so the Gardens are generous and have been beautifully planted by a top professional and are maintained on organic principles. Beyond the courtyard and pool, a series of voluptuous ponds echoing the neighbouring rice fields and planted with lotus and water lilies cascades down to the orchard, and pretty paths wind between them. The orchard is planted with, among other fruits: avocados, pineapples, mangoes, papayas, bananas, jack fruit, durian, nutmeg, lemons and limes. There is also a herb garden for keen cooks.
The infinity Swimming Pool is 12m. x 4m. plus a side sitting area. For relaxing there are garden reclining chairs and big sunshades as well as the pretty bale. There is a built-in barbeque adjacent to the bale for al fresco cooking and dining.
