The Iman Villa – Luxury Five Bedrooms Villa in Canggu
With its chic cutting edge design and sleek modern features, The Iman Villa presents a very modern face amidst Bali’s luxuriant rice paddies and emerald palm groves. Built-in gleaming local stone and finished with honey-hued wood this villa is minimalist in style, yet infused with tropical warmth, offering plenty of open spaces and endless views from every room. Early mornings reveal farmers working in the fields while, in the evenings, panoramic sunsets can be enjoyed from the expansive rooftop terrace, thoughtfully fitted with a sunken jacuzzi. Attentive butlers will be happy to serve cocktails and canapés, while dining is a gourmet experience thanks to a talented chef with a background in fine dining.
The Iman Villa includes plenty of family friendly features, including a kids’ wading pool, games and toys. The manicured lawns, neatly terraced to echo the neighbouring rice fields, also make it a great venue for weddings and events. Groups will enjoy the privacy accorded by accommodation spread between two buildings: a main two-storey house containing three bedrooms, an aroom and a guest kitchen, plus a two-bedroomed guesthouse with a cosy living/dining area and small kitchen. Looking down over the swimming pool, which juts out dramatically above the terraced lawns, is a vast living pavilion with a comfortable sunken lounge and a dining table for 12. The villa is equipped with Apple TV, large plasma screens and WiFi throughout; perfect for those who wish to stay connected.
Located on the fringes of the peaceful village of Pererenan, in Bali’s popular Canggu district, The Iman Villa is ideal for those in search of a quiet retreat, while being close enough to Seminyak for guests to enjoy a night out in one of Bali’s top restaurants or bars, or browse in trendy boutiques and antique shops. Surf beaches and Canggu’s ever-growing selection of laid-back cafés and beach bars are also within easy reach.
Bedroom at The Iman Villa
The Iman Villa’s five air-conditioned ensuite bedrooms each have king-size beds (one convertible to twins) piled high with cushions to complement individual colour schemes. All are equipped with TV/DVD players, copper bedside lanterns and built-in wardrobes neatly hidden behind wooden panels. Extensive windows create bright spaces and sunny outlooks.
The master bedroom is on the top floor of the main building with sloping walls and floor-to-ceiling windows revealing 180-degree views. Sliding doors open onto the roof terrace with outdoor lounge suite and sunken jacuzzi. A large bathroom incorporates a walk-in dressing room, freestanding tub, walk-in shower and window seat.
Bedroom two, neighbouring the master, is equally suited to kids or adults, with cheerful green soft furnishings and long window seat. Like the master, it also opens on to the rooftop terrace. This room’s ensuite bathroom is fitted with a rain shower.
Bedroom three is on the ground floor of the main building, with vibrant turquoise soft furnishings, carved wooden decorative wall panels and latticed occasional chairs. Glass sliding doors open onto the lawn. The bathroom has a walk-in shower and a freestanding bath tub overlooking a courtyard garden.
Both guesthouse bedrooms open onto an expansive stretch of lawn with views out to the rice fields. Bedroom four has apricot pink soft furnishings, built-in wardrobes and ensuite with shower. Bedroom five is slightly larger with white and beige furnishings and a daybed tucked into an alcove. The king-size bed in this room can convert to twins. The bathroom features a sunken tub with shower.
Living at The Iman Villa
In the large entertainment room on the ground floor of the main building is a saloon-style snooker table, large plasma screen TV and massive corner lounge suite piled with colourful cushions to create the perfect home cinema.
Glass doors wrap the stylish guest kitchen, which is fitted with a marble-topped island counter and equipped with a built-in pizza oven. Wooden panels conceal cupboards stocked with modern kitchen appliances, board games and children’s books. Steps lead down to the open-sided living pavilion at the centre of the villa.Smart sofa seating frames all four sides of the spacious, sunken lounge at the centre of which are two pale wood coffee tables. Ceiling fans keep things cool and a large plasma screen TV provides entertainment. This open-sided lounge is protected from inclement weather with remote-controlled blinds. In the dining area, a honey-coloured rustic wooden table seats 12, illuminated by copper lanterns dangling seductively from the ceiling. Bar stools pull up to the wooden bar counter and an iMac is available for guests to access high speed internet and the in-house play list piped through the villa via Bose speakers. The Iman is fitted with Apple TV throughout.
In the guesthouse, which is set to one side of the garden, an open-plan fan-cooled living, dining and kitchen space is furnished with a square table seating eight, and a lounge suite facing the wall-mounted TV. The neat kitchen is fitted with a stove hob, sink and fridge.
Steps from the living pavilion lead to a stone deck and four sunbrella-shaded loungers. The 20-metre swimming pool projects out over the lower garden, and little ones will love splashing about in the adjoining wading pool. The rooftop terrace, accessed from the two upper-floor bedrooms, features a large pond surrounded by plants which creates an ‘eco roof’ above the living area. Extensive southerly views across Bali’s forested plains can be enjoyed from the terrace’s all-weather sofas or from the depths of the stone jacuzzi just beyond the master bedroom.
