Villa Istana Semer – Seminyak
Set beautifully within 4,000SqM of rolling tropical gardens overlooking rice paddies as far as the eye can see. Istana Semer is considered one of Bali’s iconic villas which offers classic accommodation in Umalas; the perfect location for everything anyone could want whilst on the Island of the Gods.
There is no better entrance after a flight than walking through the gate down to the main house, welcomed by the smell of tube roses floating on the breeze coming from the pool and garden ahead. Faces of children and adults alight as they breath a sigh of relief entwined with excitement for their holidays ahead. Long lazy days by the pool, Bloody Mary’s on tap (Putu’s speciality), the club house housing the pool table and al fresco dining terrace with flowers tumbling from the roof; this is a villa to be enjoyed by all ages!
The traditional open air Balinese architecture leaves a sitting and dining room of epic proportions, the huge professional kitchen is ideal for those running retreats to include cooking classes or perhaps those on holiday wishing to learn the art of balinese traditional recipes with Made the villa chef. Made is on hand to prepare western or indonesian meals throughout your stay with child friendly menus if required as well.
There have been weddings, birthdays and so many other wonderful events held here leaving many with life long memories lovingly filled with fun!
