Villa Surya Damai
This congenial and serene five-bedroom villa with 18m swimming pool and private tennis court rests amongst the glorious rice terraces of Umalas village on Bali’s south-west coast.
Built to the design of a traditional Balinese family compound home, Villa Surya Damai’s large, open-sided living room and charming thatched bedroom pavilions are set within an enchanting walled garden, along one side of which basks the irresistible pool. The villa effortlessly blends colonial elegance with tropical ambiance while providing all the modern comforts required for a memorable, relaxing stay. An excellent team of welcoming staff, as well as a complimentary car and driver, take care of guests’ every need.
Villa Surya Damai is ideally positioned just a 15-minute walk from the nearest surf beach and yet only a short drive from Seminyak’s shopping and nightlife.
About Villa Surya Damai
Villa Surya Damai is a sublime introduction to Bali villa living. This delightful five-bedroom property comes uniquely infused with touches of colonial elegance, high quality interiors and furnishings and all the modern creature comforts required for the perfect tropical villa holiday.
Essentially, Villa Surya Damai is a much-loved private family residence that promises to make guests’ modern-day stresses melt away. Here, classic good taste mixes with understated simplicity and ample luxury is supplied without overwhelming hi-tech gadgetry. The ever-happy team of staff are further evidence that this is indeed a relaxed ‘home from home,’ welcoming with warmth and informal hospitality.
Set amongst 2,750sqm of mature tropical riverside gardens, the property consists of a series of charming thatched pavilions in the design of a traditional Balinese family compound home. Spacious bedrooms, private terraces and pretty ensuite garden bathrooms encircle a welcoming open-sided living pavilion while pool loungers, outdoor and indoor dining areas and an additional lounge–TV room on an upstairs veranda provide more than enough options for both private and social moments. Recreational facilities include three TVs and DVD players, iPod docking and sound systems, a hard-surface tennis court and an inviting 18m natural-stone-lined pool.
Beyond the enchanting gardens and swaying palm fronds lie terraces of verdant rice fields on one side and a grassy pasture complete with grazing cows on the other. It’s a quiet spot, where days blissfully blur together, but if you do feel the urge to venture out, the villa is just a few minutes’ drive (or a 15-minute walk) from the Indian Ocean and some excellent surfing beaches, as well as a glut of world-class restaurants and stylish bars in nearby Petitenget and Seminyak.
Villa Surya Damai features several alang alang thatch-roofed pavilions generously spread throughout an immaculately landscaped riverside garden. At the centre of the compound, and facing the pool, is an informal, open-sided living room. Stepping-stone pathways set in lush green lawns lead to a master suite, principal guest suite and a double-storey pavilion, containing three bedrooms and a second, veranda-style, living area. Another pavilion, overlooking the swimming pool, houses the formal dining room and adjoining kitchen. A hard tennis court rests in the far corner of the grounds.
Heart and hub – literally – of the property, the open-sided living pavilion looks out over the pool, the gardens and the rice fields beyond. Two comfy sofas and a deep daybed with white cushions frame a large antique coffee table making a sociable space which is attractively and subtly lit at night, while a satellite TV, camouflaged in a wooden cabinet along with DVD player and Bose sound system offer audio-visual distraction. In tropical yet homely style, this room features terrazzo stone floors and soaring alang alang ceiling, and is kept cool with natural breezes and ceiling fan. Understated décor includes candles, fresh orchids and traditional carved artefacts.
Dining and kitchen
In contrast to the living pavilion, the dining room is encased in glass folding doors which, when closed, project a more formal atmosphere. The room is dominated by a table crafted from a single block of aged teak wood, surrounded by 12 tall-backed cream upholstered chairs. A ceiling fan keeps the room cool and a lengthy lily pond runs alongside, featuring a water fountain and playful fish. A covered stone pathway links the dining room to a fully-equipped kitchen that is amply efficient yet homely in style.
Next to the pool and shaded by large green parasols, a slatted teak table and eight chairs form a sociable outdoor dining area – marvellous for sunny breakfasts, pool-side lunches or dining under the stars.
Veranda living and TV room
Adjoining bedroom five, upstairs in the two-storey pavilion, a wide veranda provides an alternative living area. Open-sided and with high ceilings, the fan-cooled timbered veranda overlooks the entire property. Entertainment is provided with a satellite TV, DVD player and sound system, hidden in a large wooden cabinet. Comfortable seating comes in the form of a squashy L-shaped sofa and some large floor cushions.
Garden and pool
Villa Surya Damai’s gardens consist of gorgeously spongy lawns, edged with tropical foliage and trees, criss-crossed with stone-paved pathways and decorated with intricate carved stone wall panels. The striking 18 x 7m infinity-edge pool is bordered on one side by a simple grass and stone deck where cushioned sun-loungers beckon. Lawns slope down from the far side of the pool to a 60m river frontage, edged with exotic palm fronds and coconut trees; the low wall encircling the gardens allows maximum views of the rice fields beyond.
Dusk is a particularly lovely time in the garden at Surya Damai. Take a dip in the pool and appreciate the peaceful rice-field views, as the fading sunlight stretches across the water, or wander the many hidden corners of the garden which is magically illuminated at night with pretty Balinese lanterns and fire beacons.
