Des Indes Villa II is a hidden gem!  From the moment the bright red iron-studded entrance door swung open to reveal a row of saffron-robed stone-carved monks standing sentinel across the entrance pond, we were enchanted.  The clever layout makes the most of the space – land is at a premium in this uber-elite part of Seminyak, and we liked the way both (surprisingly large) bedroom suites were separated by the swimming pool, giving extra privacy.  The owners have a fine eye for Asian antiques and artefacts, and we loved the blend of heritage romance and modern luxury… where else can you take a bath surrounded by Chinese porcelain and Asian artefacts!

Favourite places to hang out? The huge four-poster bed swathed in mosquito netting, and the elegant marble-topped breakfast table by the pool. The staff greeted us with garlands of Frangipani flowers and refreshing ice-cold towels, and a special mention must go to the chef; his beautifully cooked Barramundi dinner made me so happy we chose to eat in rather than stroll down to La Lucciola!  We were one couple staying, and think this would be a rather lovely honeymoon spot; but imagine two couples or a family with two kids would be equally happy here.

Highlights

This feels a generous space for a two-bedroom villa, and we loved the profusion of antique-style furniture and fascinating objects d’art – a feast for the eyes.  The quirky choice of books was the icing on the cake!  The real surprise though was just how quiet it was – hard to believe we were bang smack in the centre of Seminyak.

Surprises

If preparing your own meals is the precursor to a great holiday, then this isn’t the place for you; there’s no on-site kitchen.  Not to worry though, as the villa chef whips up wonderful meals in the adjacent Des Indes Villa III (breakfast is included in the villa rate and other meals can be selected from a reasonably priced menu).  Though no one was staying at Des Indes Villa III at the time, we could imagine that sound might carry.  But when both villas are booked together the sense of extra space is stunning.  Finally, slather on the repellant provided; like the rest of Seminyak, mosquitos can be a nuisance at certain times of the year!

Thank you for an amazing vacation, your accommodations was perfect. The traditional style villa was just what we were looking for, the entire staff did an exceptional job in providing us with attention, friendliness, caring and warmth. They made us feel like we were home and his will not be the last time we visit.
