Perfect for wolf packs travelling to Bali for a touch of sunshine, Villa Lulito offers luxury and convenience at the heart of the island’s vibrant Seminyak neighbourhood.
So, you’ve decided it’s time to assemble the lads (and maybe the lasses, if they’re lucky) and make for Indonesia’s Island of the Gods? Located in Seminyak’s upmarket Oberoi district, Villa Lulito, part of the Elite Havens collection of luxurious Balinese villa properties, offers friends travelling together two things: a tropical urban escape within easy reach of many unique Bali experiences, including beach clubs, spas and superb restaurants; and a home away from home for discerning travellers looking for family fun under the sun.
With a stylish white-on-white residential design persona Villa Lulito features four luxurious garden-wreathed pavilions, oriented around a generous 15-metre swimming pool and creating one stunning residence. The two-level sleeping pavilion, home to four ensute guest rooms, has a wide balcony with views over the inviting pool. The Master Bedroom features a four-poster king-sized bed and a free-standing bath tub, while an adjacent “children’s room” (you don’t have to tell your travelling companions that’s what it’s called) features four netted custom-built bunk beds as well as addition of a queen or two singles. Two additional guestrooms at ground level feature bamboo four-postered king-sized beds, crisp linens, and ensuites with rain showers, and open directly onto the central courtyard.
A well-equipped kitchen and relaxed dining space are housed in another pavilion while a formal dining area adjoins glorious living spaces that are adorned with elegant furnishings and modern facilities in a grand central pavilion. With the addition of round-the-clock security, a private chef, and elegant al fresco dining spaces, this is the perfect private base for an intimate dinner or before painting the town red.
That’s if you want to leave to all. A quick phone call to your villa manager is all it takes to request spa therapists to the property for rejuvenating treatments in the privacy of your room or against the backdrop of tropical gardens. Exciting day trips can also be arranged, whether it is exploring the beautiful rice terraces of the artists’ town of Ubud, surfing Bali’s world-famous surf breaks or teeing off at one of the island’s acclaimed golf courses. From US$950 per night. www.elitehavens.com
