This super-stylish architectural masterpiece is nestled in a quiet cul-de-sac in the heart of Seminyak, a short stroll from the beach.
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, just one 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 emerald green swimming pool, the heady scent of frangipani drifting on 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 super-comfortable couches and browse a book as you listen to chill-out tunes on the Bose sound system. And when it is 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 would not 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, 24 hours a day, by an incredible team of staff, including your 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 the best restaurants, shops, bars and cafes, with 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" satellite television, 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.

Villa Issi is tucked down a quiet cul-de-sac in the heart of Seminyak. The villa is close to the Oberoi and Legian Hotels and is ideally situated for anyone wishing to sample Seminyak's world-class dining, happening bars and fabulous clothing, home ware and jewelry boutiques. The famous beachfront dining venue, Ku De Ta, is just down the road and the beautiful seaside restaurant of La Lucciola only a short stroll away, as is Seminyak Beach and the sacred Petitenget Temple.
• Fashionistas, trendies and shopaholics should wander around Seminyak, Bali's most cosmopolitan enclave. Here, you can indulge for hours in the glut of stylish, chic boutiques. For furniture, antiques and home ware stores go for a wander around the streets of nearby Kerobokan.
• It's possible to walk the grey sands of Seminyak's Petitenget beach all the way to Kuta in the south, or north to Canggu. The beach is more popular with locals than tourists (not safe for swimming in most sections), but is a great spot for building sandcastles or to watch the sunset as you sip a cocktail from one of the many beach side bars.
• You could eat out at a different restaurant in Seminyak every night - for months - and still not run out of options. Jalan Laksmana (also known as Jalan Oberoi and Jalan Kayu Aya) is Bali’s fashionable 'Eat Street', offering plenty of high-end restaurants including Sarong and Nutmegs at Hu'u Bar. La Lucciola Restaurant is great for sunset drinks, as is The Breeze at The Samaya. While Ku De Ta is still the place to see and be seen, two new beach clubs, Cocoon and Potato Head, are classy seaside alternatives.
• Pura Petitenget at the beach side off Jalan Petitenget is a compact, pretty Balinese temple, which is known for particularly spectacular beach-side ceremonies. There has been a temple here since at least the 16th century, and although this is not one of the key nine directional temples of Bali, it is an important link in the series of west coast temples between Pura Uluwatu and Pura Tanah Lot.
• In-villa beauty and massage treatments carried out by professional therapists can normally be arranged with ease, but if you would prefer to visit one of Seminyak's spas, we recommend: Bodyworks (quality treatments at very reasonable prices - a favourite with Bali's expats); Callego (a casual massage centre with a small restaurant attached); Chill (super reflexology treatments - great for jetlag); Prana Spa for Ayurvedic treatments.
• Learn the secrets of Balinese spices and cuisine during a cookery class at Sate Bali Restaurant on Jalan Kayu Aya in Seminyak. At the end of the three hour course sit down to enjoy the fruits of your labours.
• The most exclusive Bali trekking tour promises breath-taking vistas and heart-warming encounters while supporting sustainable social change in the once-forgotten villages of Muntigunung.
• If you have always dreamed of galloping along a beach or riding through villages bordered by rice fields, now's your chance. Bali Horse Adventure and Kuda P Stables (both in Pererenan) can arrange horse riding tours, as well as children’s riding lessons and horse-drawn carriage outings.
• If you are a bold and brave bargain hunter, a spree within the heart of Bali's bustling provincial capital is an exciting and rewarding experience. Visit Denpasar's vibrant markets, where everything and anything is available.
• Visit the famous Tanah Lot sea temple. Although renowned for its sunset vistas, going early in the morning provides a better idea of the power of the location and the chance to see it undisturbed, apart from perhaps an offering ceremony.
• Dine out a the fabulous 'Petitenget', a iconic bar and restaurant on Jalan Petitenget, perfect for a casual lunch with the family or evening sophistication with cocktails and friends.
• Covering 3.8 hectares of tropical parkland in Kuta, Waterbom Bali has 16 water slides (including The Climax with its 360 degree loop) to entertain the young and the young at heart. A great family day out, but go early to beat the crowds.
