The Layar is a spectacular design-led villa resort in the heart of chic Seminyak, with moments from Bali’s best restaurants, boutiques, and sunset beach bars. Cutting-edge contemporary architecture and ultra-chic interiors characterize the 23 villas. The Layar offers a choice of one-, two-, three- and four-bedroom villas, each with its own distinctive design and all with an uncurbed feeling of space and openness. The Layar Four Villas, stone slabs across a lily pond lead into an open-plan living room that flows around contoured and angled walls towards the garden.
A few steps up is a mezzanine media room where a glazed wall looks down over the living area; tucked below is a guest bedroom. At one end of the living space is a raised dining area, a breakfast bar and the fitted kitchen. At the opposite end is a sitting area open to the garden. A corridor leads to a guest cloakroom and second guest bedroom, while, discreetly tucked behind another feature wall, is a third guestroom with doors to the garden. Across the lawn is a large swimming pool with a separate jacuzzi at one end and a spa with a massage room and shower at the other. Beyond the Bengkirai-wood pool deck, and very privately screened behind another curved wall, is the master bedroom suite.
Bedrooms at The Layar Four Villas
A curved display wall creates an imposing backdrop to the master suite’s king-sized leather-and-wood bed, facing a bank of wardrobes and a desk set below a wall-mounted TV. A corner banquette looks onto a small garden open to the bathroom, where there’s a terrazzo bathtub, vanity with twin basins, shower enclosure, and second alfresco shower.
Discreetly tucked off the living room in the main villa are the three large, air-conditioned guest bedrooms, each with a unique charm. One is multi-level, with the king-sized bed on a raised Merbau-wood platform facing the pool, a dressing area, a large garden bathroom (with twin basins, indoor and outdoor showers, and a bathtub) on the lower level. The two other bedrooms – one with a king, the other with twin beds – look onto their own corner gardens and have indoor/outdoor bathrooms with bathtubs, shower enclosures, and twin basins.
Living Spaces and Outdoor Area at The Layar Four Villas
The large split-level living room provides a perfect balance of sociable open-plan entertainment space and quiet get-away-from-it-all corners. On a raised platform of polished Merbau wood, a dining table for eight is separated from the well-equipped kitchen by a bar counter. On the lower level, sofas are arranged around a coffee table overlooking the garden and pool. Above is a mezzanine media room where sensually curved seating runs the full length of one wall.
There’s more luscious lounging space in the garden, with oversized sunbeds languishing on the lawn and sun loungers and a circular love seat set on the pool deck. Submerged seating in the jacuzzi and shallow wings flanking the pool provide the perfect spots to stretch out and cool down. There’s a dining table for sunset cocktails and alfresco meals for six sets before a barbecue cooking station.
