Welcome to
Villa Batavia – Laksmana

Villa Batavia is a fully staffed five-bedroom villa that counts Asia’s grandest heritage hotels as its strongest design influence, whilst including all the hi-tech facilities a twenty-first-century guest demands. A modern-day Somerset Maugham would delight in the generous open living spaces, antiques and artefacts, shaded verandas and breezy 24-hour butler service while relishing the Sonos sound system, iPod docks, home theatre, HD TVs and high-speed WiFi.

Located within the elite Laksmana Villas estate an easy stroll from the beach and Bali’s best restaurants, bars and boutiques, Villa Batavia also accords families and groups of friends a privileged ringside seat for Seminyak’s sophisticated day-into-night scene.

The layout

Villa Batavia’s generous expanse of living space and elegant bedroom suites are spread over three interconnected pavilions oriented round the pool and garden. Huge teakwood entrance doors open onto the villa’s heart – a large reception room and, above, an open-sided pavilion bar and lounge. A two-level colonnade leads to a guest wing with large living and dining room on the second level and a kitchen and staff service area behind. Downstairs, two guest bedrooms open onto the pool terrace. Across the pool and linked to the reception pavilion by a covered teakwood walkway is the master pavilion with large master bedroom suite on the top level and a second master bedroom and twin guestroom opening onto the garden below.

The rooms

Villa Batavia offers five large bedrooms – four with handsome four-poster beds and walk-through wardrobes (2 king and 2 queen beds), a fifth with twin beds.  They feature oriental carpets scattered on polished teakwood floors, walls lined with fascinating colonial-era prints and artefacts, and shaded verandas looking over the pool and garden.  Balancing the heritage-style interiors are more contemporary touches – mini-bar fridge, safe deposit box, cable TV and DVD player, and Bose iPod dock.  There’s air-conditioning throughout and among other comfort-inducing features are top-range mattresses, crisp cotton bed linen, kimonos and slippers.

All the ensuite bathrooms are air-conditioned, with teakwood and non-slip acid-etched marble floors, double basins and separate privacy cubicles for shower and toilet.

The master bedroom suite occupies the entire second level of the master wing, and encompasses a large bedroom, adjoining study room, walk-through wardrobe and dressing area, and palatial ensuite bathroom with statement copper bathtub.  A teakwood veranda runs the full length of the suite, with private breakfast and relaxation areas.

Downstairs is a second master suite with veranda opening onto the garden, and a twin bedroom with ensuite – perfect for the kids.

Two more guest bedroom suites in the guest wing offer cool, comfortable interiors enriched with handsome furniture and heritage accents (including a hand-crafted stained glass window) and a shared veranda spilling onto the poolside sun terrace.
