Honeymooners and couples of all ages will fall in love with Villa Radha – an enchanting heritage hideaway in its own jungle garden that will surely kindle passion and inspire romance. Raised high above lotus ponds is a large, Century-old gladak, a handsome Javanese building with gin-and-tonic-at-sundown verandah. Inside, a glamorous teakwood bedroom with a king-size bed invites languid sleep-ins, followed by a good soak in the stunning garden bathtub-for-two, carved out of a single piece of river rock.
From the lotus ponds, tiers of rock-pools tumble past a second antique building (just the spot for a candle-lit dinner), towards the freeform swimming pool and the poolside balé tucked out of sight. A couple would be in a world of their own in this water-garden wonderland. And what if they want to emerge from this reverie?
As one of four villas in the exclusive Dea Villas Estate, Villa Radha accords couples a range of facilities that few Bali villas can offer (let alone one-bedroom abodes). Where else could you wobble off the calories on a Powerplate in a professionally equipped air-conditioned gym, work up a sweat in the sauna and then pop into the dedicated spa for a deliciously choreographed four-hand massage? The level of service is also exemplary; among the 29-strong staff that serves Dea Villas are butlers working in shifts 24/7, and three chefs who are dab hands at creating everything from poolside snacks to gourmet dinners from a reasonably priced menu.
Villa Radha has romance written all over it, so it comes as no surprise that it’s a hot favourite with honeymooners. For wedding parties, it can be rented in conjunction with any (or all) of the four other Villa Amy (three bedrooms), Villa Sarasvati, and Villa Sati (both bedrooms). Between them, the four villas have a total of 12 bedrooms for 24 people (with 8+ extra beds possible)
