Villa Kelusa Photos

Check Availability


Villa Kelusa comprises a series of well-spaced single- and double-storey pavilions perched on a ridge above cascading rice terraces.  The pavilions are linked by pathways meandering through beautifully tended gardens dotted with frangipani trees, tree ferns and towering stone artefacts from Indonesia’s eastern islands.

All four of the villa’s bedrooms are air-conditioned and have king-size beds.  Furthest south is Pondok Surya ¬– Sunset House.  Here, the romantic master bedroom suite on the upper level opens onto a shaded veranda fringed by alang-alang thatch that frames the far-reaching rice-terrace vistas … views also enjoyed from the stately in-suite bathtub sculpted from solid wood and set before sliding glass doors.  Below is a second bedroom opening onto the garden, and a galley kitchen.  The long, vaulted-roof living pavilion features a seating/media area and a sit-up bar, as well as a dining platform and sunken seats within the statement swimming pool that sweeps from inside out, to hover seemingly suspended above the rice terraces.

Further north along the ridge is Pondok Sapi, the Cow House – with accommodation spread across three pavilions.  Edged with lotus ponds, the living pavilion contains a large dining table, breakfast bar, stylish seating and circular daybeds.  Behind is a beautifully decorated gourmet kitchen, walls festooned with artefacts, offering more comfortable seating and eating areas.  Next door is a media room that can be used as an extra guest bedroom.

In the two-storey glass-walled studio – a paeon to contemporary interior design – the entire top floor is devoted to the master suite, where an enormous bed and statement bathtub are positioned to enjoy the stunning views through floor-to-ceiling windows on all sides.  The central staircase acts as a divider between the bedroom and the huge bathroom and dressing room behind.  Downstairs is a guest bedroom suite with great views and an ensuite bathroom with indoor and outdoor shower, and a library/TV room.

Last but by no means least is the open-sided thatched entertainment cabana with casual lounge area leading onto a sun terrace and the estate’s second infinity-edge swimming pool.
