Overlooking an expanse of rice terraces just north of Umalas village, and a few kilometres from Bali's famed sunset and surf beaches, Umah Daun - Indonesian for 'leaf house' - stands out from the crowd with its distinctive, elegantly bowed roofs. Within a series of pavilions curved around a large swimming pool, kids wading pool and entertainment bale are five large bedroom suites, formal living and dining rooms, a gourmet kitchen, media room, pool room, library, kids' playroom and tree house. Such generous accommodation will appeal to extended families or groups of friends seeking a peaceful location within easy reach of Seminyak's lively shopping and restaurant scene. Umah Daun is also perfect for weddings and other special celebrations.
Umah Daun is an exceptional villa – a super-sized five-bedroom home skillfully sculpted from interlinking pavilions arranged in an arc around the large swimming pool, kids pool, jacuzzi and gorgeous gardens.
Conceived by noted Balinese architect, Komang Suardika of Jeghier Architect, the villa's generous living areas appear to extend beyond their glass doors and across the shallow pond that flows around the contours of the pavilion, emulating the form of the surrounding rice terraces. An uncompromisingly modern design is softened with graciously curved walls and well considered use of natural materials such as andesite rock for statement walls, polished Merbau-wood and marble floors, and bowed Bengkirai-wood roofs which bring to mind the leaves after which the villa is named.
Umah Daun has huge family appeal. Youngsters will gravitate to the beanbag-strewn playroom, kids wading pool and tree house, while kids of all ages will appreciate the villa's media room, games room, 16-metre swimming pool and Jacuzzi. There are myriad toys for grown-ups too, among them a SONOS multi-zone sound system and a climate-controlled wine room. The massive dining table will be the focus for many fabulous feasts, whilst the poolside bale is perfect for less formal meals. And while there’s an abundance of social living space, it's countered with quiet corners – library, bedroom balconies and a rooftop terrace -for a break from the crowd.
While Umah Daun is a world in itself, guests are only a short taxi ride away from Bali's famed sunset beaches and Seminyak's uber-hip boutiques, spas, restaurants and bars.
Set within beautiful gardens and surrounded by rice paddies, Umah Daun comprises a series of linked pavilions cradling a generous pool and sun deck. After entering the villa across a pond, one arrives in the living pavilion, which is linked via an open veranda to the main pavilion. The dining room, kitchen and media room occupy the ground floor of the main pavilion, while the library, two twin bedrooms and a rooftop terrace lie above. Beyond a grand staircase is the games room and the two-storey master bedroom pavilion. On the far side of the living pavilion, a bridge leads to the fifth bedroom, the kids' playroom and the tree house.
