Entry to Tirtha Bayu Villa I is at ground level via a walkway flanked by koi ponds and water features, leading into a single-story pavilion with soaring ceilings. This area has two bedrooms and a lounge that flows seamlessly into the adjoining three-story pavilion to create an immense open-plan living area. Stairs lead up to a roof terrace and two guest bedrooms. Another lounge area, gym and two more bedrooms are located on the lower ground floor opening onto the gardens.
The main entrance leads into an expansive, air-conditioned, open-plan lounge that flows into a dining room and open kitchen. The lavish room is adorned with antiques, handwoven rugs and elaborate wood carvings. Enter and marvel at the entrance balé (Balinese-style pavilion) with a high-pitched roof and joglo-inspired, hand-carved teak ceiling that makes a striking design feature. Indulge in the sense of opulence, created with black Chesterfield loungers, oversized ottomans, and a baby grand piano.
There’s never a dull moment here with games of billiards and incessant chatter around the ten-seater, wooden dining table. Make your morning coffee in the fully equipped modern guest kitchen with sleek grey marble counters, a coffee machine and island bench, while the kids eat at the rectangular breakfast table by your side. Wherever you go though, floor to ceiling glass windows and doors reveal pool and ocean views, reminding you that you are in blissful Bali. Movie nights are best enjoyed in the dark and sumptuous home theatre featuring dark blue walls, sofa seating, a 70-inch, flat-screen satellite-channel TV, DVD player and evocative Balinese artwork.
A wide staircase descends into a second, air-conditioned living area that opens onto the lawn. This is a great space for adults to socialise as you settle into the leather sofas or sit around the four-seater round dining table. A 65-inch flat-screen satellite-channel TV offers background entertainment or music. Keep fit by working out in the gym, separated from the living area by glass panels, with a three-in-one home gym station including weights and a punching bag, plus a bathroom and exercise mats.
Bali is all about outdoor living and Tirtha Bayu Estate embodies tropical living. Myriad alfresco areas overlook the pool, blue ocean and tropical gardens brimming with hibiscus, heliconia and golden-tipped frangipani. Spend your days in the covered veranda that wraps around the villa with two separate lounge areas featuring all-weather rattan sofas topped with bright cushions, read a book on the large carved teak daybed, or share some tasty bites around the round dining table that seats five. A spacious, open-air garden balé begs for evening cocktails, set amidst koi ponds and water fountains and furnished with plush arm chairs and a small dining table.
The 14-metre swimming pool is fringed with a timber sun deck, dotted with sun loungers and umbrellas, boasting views that reach out to the ocean. Head upstairs to the expansive rooftop terrace accessed by a spiral staircase and take in panoramic views of rice fields, volcanos and a neighbouring Hindu temple clinging onto rocks.
Master Bedroom I
The master bedroom on the first floor opens onto the rooftop terrace for morning cups of coffee with stupendous views. With a king-size bed, extensive ocean views, a large walk-in dressing room and a generous lounge area with sofa seating, the room is well-appointed for all your needs. The neighbouring deluxe room similarly opens onto the terrace and has a generously-sized bed, a writing table with two chairs and a built-in wardrobe.
Two deluxe king-bedded rooms adjoin the lounge on the ground floor. In addition to indoor showers tiled in creamy marble, both have enticing large outdoor garden showers fringed in lush foliage. Bali is all about indoor-outdoor living and Tirtha Bayu embodies this lifestyle.
Master Bedroom II
On the lower ground floor, an additional master bedroom opens onto the lawns with views straight out to the sea. It has a king-size bed for dreamy nights. The room also features a table with four chairs, Chesterfield armchairs, wall-to-ceiling robes and an opulent bathroom tiled in sleek black marble accessed via pintu gebyok – an elaborate Javanese carved teak door. A smaller deluxe bedroom shares similar ocean views, with glass sliding doors opening to the garden.
