Live like royalty at the luxurious, lusciously landscaped and serenely situated Villa Malaathina. There is so much to enjoy here – from fabulous indoor and outdoor spaces to dine and relax, to seven exceptionally spacious and well-appointed bedrooms, a state-of-the-art gym and first-class entertainment facilities. Spend lazy days on a lounger next to the 25-metre swimming pool; practice your sun salutations in the dedicated yoga studio; work out at the impressively equipped gym or gather with friends at the end of the day and enjoy a meal cooked by your personal chef in the enormous poolside Teppanyaki pavilion. Whatever epitomises your dream holiday, Villa Malaathina has you covered.
The grand air-conditioned library offers wonderful respite from the heat and is a great venue for informal catch-ups over a coffee or an afternoon of sport on the big screen, while the cosy home cinema room with its fabulous 62-inch television and acres of comfortable sofas is absolutely perfect for a movie night. Indoor and outdoor living and dining areas cater for casual suppers, formal dinners and long lazy lunches. Sip on a cocktail or enjoy an ice-cold beer and watch one of Bali’s spectacular sunsets from the master suite’s rooftop terrace or one of the four bar areas. The villa’s extravagant size, excellent facilities and carefully considered layout make it an ideal choice for families and groups of friends holidaying together, and an excellent venue for special events and celebrations.
All the while, a team of professional and caring staff will ensure that your every holiday desire is realised. Villa Malaathina is located off a quiet country lane in the rural community of Umalas, well known for its beautiful rice paddies and traditional way of life. Despite its charming rustic feel, the restaurants, bars and shopping of Seminyak are just a fifteen-minute drive away. The nearest surf beaches are Batu Bolong and Echo Beach, while the award-winning Greg Norman-designed Nirwana Bali Golf Course and dramatic sea temple at Tanah Lot are just ten kilometres from the villa.
Bedroom at Villa Malaathina
The master and four of the bedroom suites have comfortable lounge or built-in sitting areas, and bedrooms 6 and 7, while smaller than the others, boast pleasant furnished outdoor terraces.
With stunning views over the rice paddies on one side and the swimming pool and garden on the other, Villa Malaathina’s light and spacious master bedroom is the definition of luxury, and comes complete with a king-size bed, private furnished balcony and large dressing room. A soak in the enormous bathroom’s granite tub, overlooking a rooftop garden dotted with splendid purple, pink and white bougainvillea, is an absolute must.
Opposite the master suite lies an equally airy and light-filled guest suite. Featuring two stunning Buddha statues, this room overlooks the tropical garden and pool and also boasts a king-size bed and a dressing room. Its delightful bathroom has views over the surrounding rice paddies.
Bedroom 3 & 4
Located alongside the swimming pool, guest suites 3 and 4 are wonderfully adaptable, as they both have twins which convert to kings. The rooms are connected by a solid teak door, which can be opened to make one big family suite. Wide glass doors open onto furnished poolside terraces.
With its traditional pitched roof made from Kalimantan wood, this king-bedded suite is situated at the far end of the garden near the yoga studio and gym, and provides a very private getaway.
Bedrooms 6 & 7
These two identical bedrooms each feature twin beds, which can be joined to make a king. Chinese inspired furnishings complete these charming rooms, which share a covered balcony with outdoor seating, offering guests a lovely space to relax.
Living Spaces at Villa Malaathina
The beauty of a villa this size is that there is such an abundance of space to lounge, dine, relax, socialise, exercise or simply to take some time out for yourself. Enjoy the tropical Balinese climate and relax in the open-air living, dining and bar area overlooking the swimming pool. With a stunning copper chandelier overhead, the circular dining table has seating for ten, while the living area is furnished with comfortable sofas and a chaise longue on which to read a book or magazine, or relax to your favourite music played over the Sonos sound system.
Should the air-conditioned comfort of indoor living be more to your taste, head to the lounge, with its luxurious velvet seating and strikingly backlit ‘onyx’ bar leading to a formal dining area with ten-seater table. Alternatively, the media room, with its 62-inch TV screen, DVD player, surround-sound system and expanse of comfortable sofa seating, offers guests a fabulous cinema-like experience.
At the far end of the pool lies the villa’s impressive library. With its enormous L-shaped sofa, 43-inch television, Bose sound system, collection of books and a coffee-bar area, this room offers guests the ultimate retreat.
Perhaps the villa’s most unique feature is its impressive Teppanyaki pavilion, which lies alongside the swimming pool. At one end of the pavilion is the grill itself – imported from Europe and set within a deep-green marble counter edged by ten lime-washed rattan seats – while at the other end a comfortable sunken lounge sits at eye level with the pool.
The generous 25-metre swimming pool forms the centerpiece of this magnificent villa. Cushioned double sun loungers arranged along the pool deck and shaded by capacious red umbrellas, make this the ideal spot to spend lazy days. Later, as the day draws to a close, head for the sunset terrace and – cocktail in hand – watch as the sky becomes a blaze of colour.
