Stepping through the gate and into Villa Issi’s serene garden, interest is immediately drawn to the striking white steel and wood screen that wraps the villa’s two upper-floor bedrooms and the timber ‘bridge’ that extends out over the pool. The ground floor of the villa comprises the chic contemporary lounge, dining room and kitchen, while outside, the barbecue dining area overlooks the 25-metre swimming pool, and a two-bedroom guest pavilion and stand-alone gym rest among the tropical plants and ancient frangipani trees.
Kick back and relax on the sofas and ottomans in Villa Issi’s stylish lounge. A fabulous zebra skin rug, bright cushions and quirky artworks decorate this comfortable, light and airy room which features a 55-inch satellite television, DVD player, iPod dock, and a Bose sound system that is wired to work throughout the building and can be controlled from each room. A sliding door separating the lounge from the dining area can be opened up to make one large open-plan living space. The dining area has a blonde wood table with seating for ten and overlooks the state-of-the-art, stainless steel kitchen. The lounge, kitchen and dining area all have floor-to-ceiling glass doors, which can be opened or closed at your discretion.
Bali’s climate lends itself to outdoor living and there are plenty of spaces to enjoy the tropical lifestyle at Villa Issi. For relaxed dining look no further than the barbecue area in the garden with seating for eight and a top-of-the-range gas-fired barbecue. The ‘bridge’ deck above the pool is the perfect space to relax on a beanbag and read a magazine but when the sun goes down, this is a spectacular spot to enjoy a cocktail with friends.
Villa Issi’s bedrooms are all well-appointed bedrooms and air conditioned, featuring luxurious ensuite bathrooms, 32-inch television screens with DVD players and Bose surround-sound.
Located on the upper floor of the main villa, Villa Issi’s elegant master bedroom boasts recycled teak flooring and stunning black-and-white artwork. This king-bedded room has a large dressing area and its enormous grey terrazzo bathroom has a freestanding tub as well as indoor and outdoor rain showers.
The study bedroom, which is accessed via the upper-floor deck, boasts a king-size bed, a desk running the length of one wall, a large walk-in wardrobe and an ensuite bathroom fitted with a rain shower.
Villa Issi’s guest pavilion is located in the garden and overlooks the pool. Its two identical bedrooms feature king-size beds, honey blonde teakwood floors and ensuite garden bathrooms with rain showers and romantic bathtubs for two. A terrace at the front of the bedrooms has a covered seating area furnished with beanbag chairs and daybeds, making this the perfect getaway spot.
