The Villa is named Vajra. It is the ultimate accommodation for up to eight guests in a totally private and exclusive natural ecosystem. Though approached through a small, traditional village, Villa Vajra stands by itself in a setting of undisturbed rice fields and breathtaking views of the rain forest and river valley. It's striking architectural features are both traditional and modern: 'alang-alang' thatched roofs, Palimanan stone, marble, and teak wood, combine elements of old Bali with the elegance that modern ameneties and air-conditioned comfort provides.
Villa Vajra is comprised of several thatched pavillions joined by stepping stones across a magical lotus pond; a pergola covered by hanging thunbergia flowers; floating stairs that stand beside a cascading waterfall veiling a traditional seated Buddha. A comfortable lounge area rests beside the cooling swimming pool and warming jacuzzi. Stone stairs lead to a 'moon' garden of white flowers and an intimate deck for massage.
On the next level is a traditional open-sided pavillion known as a 'bale' for rest, meditation, yoga practice or simply to absorb the exquisite natural beauty. Wide open to the elements is the cathedral sized living/dining area with it's marble floor, aviary and orchid garden. Protective blinds are lowered when the weather requires. Each bedroom is equipped with telephone and distinguished by its furnishings, antique and contemporary art objects and unique view. Two of the bathrooms have large terrazzo bathtubs and are set in their own gardens.
Music, which can be heard throughout the grounds, is controlled from the comfortable library which overlooks the living room. It is the entertainment center, offering a growing library, games, music, television, and DVD movies.
The villa includes 3 full bedrooms, and a lounge which can be converted to sleep two persons (hence our description of the villa as containing '3.5 bedrooms'). Two of the bedrooms face the river valley, one faces the rice fields.
The total living area of the villa is 8,000 m2, and the total area of the ground is 18,867 m2.
The Master Bedroom, Guest Room, Studio and Study each feature individually controlled air-conditioning units and powerful ceiling fans to keep the rooms pleasantly cool. There are telephone lines for IDD calls and in-house calls in each room, and also safety deposit boxes. At night the villa takes on a different persona, with cleverly concealed lighting. Guests will appreciate the fresh cool air, and will be serenaded by a chorus of frog song to the accompaniment of ritual music from the village temples and the constant murmur of the river.
There is a barbeque terrace at the front of the villa beside the rice fields and parking space for up to six vehicles. Due to the steep hillside elevation, the villa is not recommended for disabled people or young children.
