The contemporary-styled Villa Asante, complete with four bedrooms and a swimming pool, is located just 200 metres from the beach in the fishing village of Canggu on Bali ‘s southwest coast.
Designed by international architect Ross Franklin, with interiors by Dean Kempnich, this delightful property is a study in perfect symmetry, comprised of three buildings set within an expansive walled garden, together with a 20 x 12 metre lap pool and ‘bale’ relaxation pavilion. The main two-storey building incorporates the bedrooms and a cosy TV room, while the two, single-storey, open-sided pavilions house the living room, and the dining area and kitchen. Villa Asante is ideal for families or groups of friends. There are plenty of relaxation areas, so guests will always find a private spot for peace and quiet, with a choice of air-conditioned comfort or tropical open-air living.
Two of the bedrooms are positioned downstairs and two are positioned upstairs, following the symmetrical design of the villa. Each presents a cool terrazzo floor, ceiling lights and white walls adorned with local artwork. Three of the bedrooms are furnished with king-size beds, while the fourth bedroom is furnished with twin, trundle beds, which sleep up to four kids as each bed incorporates a spare bed that rolls under the main frame. Other furnishings include built-in wardrobes, ottomans, desks and bedside tables, complemented by reading lamps and color-themed cushions in rich silk fabrics. Sliding glass doors open from the upstairs bedrooms on to a wide balcony, furnished with a daybed and presenting lovely views of the garden, the neighboring rice fields and the sea. Each bedroom, complete with private en-suite bathroom, is equipped with individually controlled air-conditioning, a ceiling fan, a safe deposit box, DVD/CD player and flat screen TV with satellite channels.
The four en-suite bathrooms are characterized by non-slip acid marble floors and creamy-white Palimanan stone walls. Each features a walk-in rain shower and toilet behind glass doors, twin washbasins and wall mirrors. Additionally, the two generously-sized downstairs bathrooms are each complemented by courtyard gardens planted with travelers’ palms and shrubs. When the glass doors are opened the interior becomes one with nature. Surrounded by walls, these romantic garden bathrooms are totally private. In addition to an indoor standing rain shower, each features an outdoor rain shower, sheltered by a roof for an alfresco showering experience. Inside each downstairs bathroom, bordered by three walls of gleaming glass, is a dreamy over sized terrazzo bathtub fitted with a hand held shower. A guest washroom is located downstairs behind the dining pavilion.
Villa Asante is supported by a carefully selected team of highly trained, friendly staff who will do their best to ensure that their guests experience a truly enjoyable stay in Bali. The team is headed by a villa manager who will oversee and coordinate the staff and property, and is available to assist guests during their stay. The team also includes a chef, housekeepers, a gardener/pool attendant and security guards. The chef is trained in the preparation of both local and international cuisine, and is responsible for all the market shopping, in accordance with the needs and the whims of the guests. The housekeepers will arrange for the daily laundry service. A driver and car is available, inclusive of price, 10 hours per day. Baby-sitting and massage services are also available on request at an extra charge.
