Villa Cendrawasih – Five Bedrooms Villa in Seminyak
Appropriately named after a bird of paradise, five-bedroomed Villa Cendrawasih presents the modern face of Balinese villas in Seminyak, combining cutting-edge design with supreme comfort and the friendliest of staff. Imbued with contemporary sophistication, the villa perfectly reflects its setting in Petitenget, a district renowned for hip beach clubs, world-class dining, funky boutiques, and a cosmopolitan edge. With uber-trendy W Resort right next door, Villa Cendrawasih is in great company.
Fresh, crisp interiors incorporate white walls and smooth creamy Palimanan stone floors, accented by warm honey-hued timber, modern impressionist artwork, richly textured furnishings, and a smattering of Indonesian ethnic artifacts. During the day the villa provides a chic sunny hideaway where adrenalin junkies can work out in the gym, or swim laps in the 18-meter pool, and those in search of more idle pursuits can indulge in deluxe in-villa spa treatments, watch a movie on the 55-inch HD flat-screen TV, or laze on a sunbed amidst the frangipani trees. You can enjoy sunset from the roof-top terrace with tantalizing glimpses of rice paddies, a glistening ocean, and the island’s towering volcanoes. In the evening’s hurricane lanterns softly illuminate the pathways, and a candlelit grand dining table begs for elaborate dinner parties prepared by our talented chef and served by our gracious butlers.
With five bedrooms and a fabulous location within a stone’s throw of a sandy beach and some of Bali’s most famous beach clubs and restaurants, Villa Cendrawasih has it all. A stylish modern design is complemented by ample creature comforts, including an 18-meter swimming pool, well-equipped gym, and charming sun terrace, making it equally suited to quiet family holidays, or groups of friends looking to paint the town red. Fabulous staff are a definite highlight and include attentive butlers who will cheerfully cater to every whim and an inspired chef to prepare gourmet meals.
