Villa Shinta Dewi is a beautiful contemporary villa on the edge of a rural village five minutes’ drive from Bali’s cultural and artistic heart. Here, guests may enjoy traditional Bali-style indoor/outdoor living with all the hi-tech comforts of a five-star hotel. Villa Shinta Dewi gives families and groups of friends the opportunity to experience one of Bali’s most popular location while enjoying warm and welcoming interiors, sophisticated furnishings and excellent service.
Villas comprises four ensuite bedrooms, semi-open-air living and dining areas including an upper level sunset lounge, a large swimming 16-metre pool, well-equipped gym, two balés, barbecue terrace, and air-conditioned TV room/study.
Interiors sage Dean Kempnich shaped the design of this two-storey villa, which features a wealth of natural materials: ironwood roof shingles, teakwood-lined vaulted ceilings, floors of polished terrazzo and teakwood, bathrooms awash with marble, and a stunning Palimanan stone wall of lotus flowers carved by Bali’s master craftsmen. The owners regularly stay here, so you’ll to find top-quality furnishings such as luxuriously upholstered modular sofas, stay-seated-forever dining chairs, and top-range mattresses and bed linen, as well as welcome extras such as Martini glasses and a Sonos sound system.
Days are idyllic here. Laze by the pool, relax on sun loungers, curl up on a beanbag, or retreat to the shade of the deeply cushioned balé. Enjoy a leisurely lunch whipped up by the villa’s accomplished chef. Work off the calories in the air-conditioned gym, or indulge in a therapeutic massage. After cocktails served by your butler in the upstairs ‘sunset’ lounge, head down to the Sungei river terrace for a starlit barbecue. Of course, with the cafés, shops, temples, galleries and attractions of Ubud only a few kilometres away, you might be tempted to use our twice-daily shuttle service for a few hours of cultural exploration.
With a choice of living and dining areas, there’s enough room for families or a group of friends to holiday here without getting under each other’s feet. For smaller groups who only need three bedrooms, the fourth can be converted into a media room/study.
The villa looks towards a verdant wall of mature trees edging the ravine at the bottom of the garden. Life is unhurried in this peaceful rice-farming neighbourhood of Balinese families and traditional temples. Yet within a short walk are signs of more modern times – a growing number of excellent warungs (local cafés) and even a batik studio. A few kilometres south, central Ubud beckons with museums, galleries, temples, boutiques, restaurants and spas.
Rates include: WiFi, villa service, personal cook and butler, 2 times a day shuttle to Ubud centre, security.
