Villa Atas Ombak, Indonesian
for "Villa On The Waves", is directly located on the beach
only a few kilometers north of Legian. Featuring breathtaking views
of Bali's famous sunsets, the Villa was completed
in mid-1995 and encompasses an acre and a half of garden area, with
over 100 meters of beach frontage. It also includes a large swimming
pool, a main building with three bedrooms, a large entertainment
pavilion that functions as an open-air living room, and a separate
guesthouse containing another two bedrooms. Located far enough away
from the tourist crowds to ensure total privacy, this villa is still
close enough to offer easy access to Bali's favorite shops, restaurants,
and entertainment venues.
The main building houses a large open fronted living and dining
area decorated with antiques and exudes an aura of simplicity and
style. Its centerpiece is an antique dining room table capable of
seating twelve people in comfort. White terrazzo floors lead into
the adjoining sitting room and the air-conditioned master bedroom
suite that is dominated by an exotic canvas above the queen-sized
bed. The master suite also contains a large sunken bathtub, dressing
area, open-air bathroom, and access to a private plunge pool. Two
additional bedrooms, both with air conditioning, are located on
the other side of the main building, one on the ground floor and
the second above, each with its own terrace, dressing area, and
In an adjacent building, joined to the dining area by a narrow
bridge over a small lotus pond, is the kitchen. Equipped to a restaurant-level
caliber, the kitchen’s facilities include a commercial stove,
refrigerator, and an ice cream machine.
A separate guesthouse is situated off to one side of the property.
Closer to the beach than the main building, it features two other
air-conditioned bedrooms, both with large windows offering panoramic
views, open-air bathrooms, and a small shared living area.
Directly in front of the main building and looking onto the beach
and enormous marine-colored swimming pool, is a large covered pavilion,
known in the local language as a bale, which is open on all sides.
Constructed in traditional Balinese style with an intricately thatched
roof and supported by four massive pillars, this bale provides an
informal area in which to relax with a cocktail and enjoy the exceptional
colours at sunset.
The manicured garden, featuring frangipani, palm trees, lotus
ponds and stands of ginger lilies, also boasts three ancient temples
dedicated to the favored Hindu gods. Amenities of the house include
telephone and facsimile facilities, satellite television with video,
full stereo system, and sufficient parking for up to five cars.
