We wanted for nothing at Bayu Gita Residence. The villa blends all the charms and appeal of a contemporary beach house with the stylish luxury of Bali villa living. Thoughtful design, graceful Balinese aesthetics, natural building materials, the friendliest of welcomes, and what seems like great feng shui, all conspire to create an atmosphere that is warm and inviting, and we felt right at home from the moment we walked in. While the design itself is delightfully simple and unpretentious, the luxury is in the details, and it is abundantly clear that no expense has been spared in creating this tasteful abode. Interiors are refreshingly uncluttered – decoration seem unnecessary when the lavish finishing’s of the villa are themselves a work of art; from richly-hued dark timber latticed panels and highly detailed stone work, to delicately beaded cushions, swishing burgundy drapes and gorgeous framed textiles. The beautiful white flowers that dangle from the vine-covered trellis on the patio add a touch of whimsy.
While the property is not huge, the space had been wonderfully utilised, and the open design makes it feel really fresh and spacious, especially with the sun streaming into the garden and all the doors thrown open to the sea breeze. Expansive views from the upper floor, with tantalising glimpses of the sea, add to the sense of space.
There’s no doubt that, when rented in conjunction with its big sister, six-bedroomed Villa Bayu Gita, Bayu Gita Residence would make a wonderful and very memorable beachside wedding venue.
