A stunning metal sculpture wraps around Villa Issi's top floor, providing practical shade and a delightful play of light in two of the villa's four bedrooms. Two more bedrooms overlook the enticing 25-metre pool. Living and dining spaces are chic, comfortable and flow freely to the garden. A covered barbecue dining area and timber 'bridge' deck above the pool provide stylish outdoor relaxation space, and the well-equipped gym is just the place to work off the spectacular meals cooked by your private chef who is part of the fantastic team of staff at the villa.
Internationally acclaimed and award-winning Indonesian architect Budi Pradono has created a villa that beautifully combines cutting-edge, contemporary design with relaxed tropical living.
Spend lazy days by the 25-metre private swimming pool, the heady scent of frangipani drifting in the breeze. Work out in the gym and then relax with friends and family around the state-of-the-art barbecue, or enjoy a more formal feast at the party-size dining table, prepared by our top-class private chef. Catch up on the latest movies in front of the 55" TV in the stylish monochrome lounge room, or simply kick back on the comfortable couches and browse a book as you listen to tunes on the BOSE sound system. And when it's time for sunset cocktails, head up to the funky timber 'bridge' which extends over the pool from the villa's upper-floor deck.
A conversation about Villa Issi wouldn't be complete without mention of the innovative metal 'skin' that surrounds the two bedrooms on the top floor. Not only is it functional, providing shade and keeping the rooms incredibly cool, it is a piece of kinetic art in its own right, the travelling sun creating interesting shadows and casting soft, diffused light.
Villa Issi overflows with aesthetic touches that infuse every stay with personal pleasure: the whimsical fibre-glass bull that takes pride of place in the garden, the unique artworks that have been specifically commissioned and the vibrant soft furnishings, designed and printed by the owners. You will also be looked after by an incredible team of staff, including your own highly trained private chef.
The villa is situated in a quiet cul-de-sac in one of Seminyak's most sought after locations, and you won't have to go far from your serene haven to find Bali's best restaurants, shops, bars and cafes, and the sweeping expanse of Seminyak Beach, just moments away.
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" TV, 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.
