Bedroom at Villa De Suma
Villa De Suma’s four air-conditioned bedrooms are all of equal size and layout, with polished concrete floors, Bose speakers, and LCD Satellite TVs, located in Seminyak. Each is beautifully adorned with hand-picked Asian antiques and artwork, and spacious walk-through dressing rooms have built-in wardrobes. Sleek, modern bathrooms features monsoon showers and tiled in shiny black granite. The two upper-floor bedrooms have king-sized beds and are reached by a private staircase. Each has a bathtub and spacious timber deck overlooking the pool. Stepping-stones over a fishpond lead to the lower level bedrooms, which feature semi-private plunge pools shaded by frangipanis and accessed from dressing rooms. The king-size beds in these rooms can be converted to twins.
Living Spaces at Villa De Suma
Villa De Suma is entered through a delightful open-fronted pavilion, which has soaring ceilings dangling with glass lanterns and ceiling fans. This open-plan space incorporates a dining area and living room. Steps across the front lead down to the pool and garden. At one end of the pavilion, round glass-topped table seats eight; at the other, a lounge suite and lacquered coffee tables are arranged around a 32-inch LCD Satellite TV, DVD, and Bose entertainment system. Dark wood cabinets display a collection of antiques and ethnic curios. A powder room is set to one side. The well-equipped kitchen is located behind the dining area and has sleek black granite counters, an oven, blender, and coffee maker.
The villa’s 12-meter swimming pool stretches between the two sleeping pavilions and makes a stunning central feature. It is bordered by a sun-bleached ironwood deck, ancient frangipani trees and fishponds on one side, and a narrow lawn on the other. Built-in daybeds and four deckchairs shaded by umbrellas create outdoor lounging space, while the vertical garden with its high wall and tropical foliage makes a glorious backdrop.
