Located in the village of Umalas, Villa Ben is surrounded by the cultural traditions of Bali. It is essentially a semi-rural area with productive rice terraces and strong community values. Umalas is the perfect place for some well-deserved relaxation.
Despite its serene surroundings, Villa Ben is just a 10 minute drive from the shops, restaurants and nightlife of Seminyak. The property is a strategic base from which to explore Bali at a leisurely pace. The airport is approximately 35 minutes by car.
Villa Ben has been inspired by tropical design where the swimming pool and a decorative water wall is the focal point of each unit. Structurally, all rooms have sliding doors that open wide to embrace the outdoors and create a seamless living effect.
An open-plan living space overlooks the pool and features a dining table and a galley-styled kitchen facility. A customised sofa with bold red cushions is complemented by exotic pieces of local bentry.
A cleverly concealed service area runs along a narrow passageway at the side of each villa unit. There is a second kitchen for the out-of-sight preparation of meals as well as staff quarters, a laundry and a small bathroom.
There are three bedroom suites all located off the living space. Each has a clean-line décor and a double bed for comfort. Red scatter cushions together with a bedside lamp in the same shade add a splash of colour to this minimalist setting.
Two bedrooms have a lavish en-suite bathroom for spa-styled bathing indulgence with twin vanities, a separate bath tub and rain shower. The slightly smaller third bedroom, which is suitable for children, has a bath tub with a showerhead attachment.
There is also a modern interpretation of a Balinese pavilion tucked neatly into a corner of the garden. Fitted with Villa Ben’s signature red cushions, it is a shady spot to stretch out with a book, enjoy a nap or take pleasure in a massage treatment.
A compact outdoor environment incorporates a swimming pool edged by a timber deck. An aesthetic water wall flows continuously to cool the entire compound by several degrees. A pair of lounging beds is positioned at one end of the pool to catch the sun.
