Villa Babar – Six Bedrooms Villa in Tabanan Bali
Resting upon a headland beside a deserted beach on Bali’s west coast, with a breathtaking 360-degree view of mountains, rice-fields and the Indian Ocean, is a spectacular six-bedroom hideaway known as Villa Babar.
In this one-of-a-kind sanctuary, every comfort has been considered and personal service is of the essence. This is a place to escape and enjoy peace and tranquility in beautiful surroundings, with personalised service and excellent food. If you choose to stay at this exclusive retreat, you will experience Bali’s ultimate in elegance, quixotic beauty and genuine luxurious appeal. In fact, you will never want to leave.
Getting to Villa Babar incorporates a delightful journey through traditional villages, via quiet country roads, wooded valleys, causeways across rivers and, finally, a simple track that winds through the swaying fields of rice.
Upon arrival, your senses will be awakened by the purity, spirit and timelessness of an extraordinary landscape. You will be greeted by welcoming Balinese smiles, the fragrance of tropical flowers and the constant sound of the waves.
The two-storey villa is characterised by white Yogya stone walls, cream terrazzo tiled floors, lime-washed timbers, and a colonnaded walkway on either side, on both ground and upper floor levels. A single-storey guest wing, linked to the main building, presents two guest rooms and a media room. The style is modern and minimalist, cleverly blending sophisticated elegance with the ambience of the setting. The architectural concept reveals comfort and simplicity, while the interiors unobtrusively introduce natural materials, fabrics, and colours. There isn’t anything ostentatious about this villa; the chic simplicity ensures that nothing detracts from the incredible view.
The awesome vista takes in Bali’s chain of volcanoes from the mighty Mt. Agung in the east, to Mt. Pohen, Mt. Sangkiang and Mt. Batukaru – the island’s second highest volcano – which rises from its foothills just 20 kilo meters away, and majestically stands guard over Villa Babar. On the seaward side is a windswept beach of glistening black sand, and a coastal panorama that extends all the way down to Uluwatu on Bali’s southwestern tip. On a clear day you can see Java; to the east you can watch the sunrise behind Mt. Agung and, to the west, the sunsets are amazing.
There are six air-conditioned bedrooms at Villa Babar including the sumptuous master bedroom. Each bedroom is equipped with a safe deposit box and an iPod dock, and each has an ensuite bathroom. All bedrooms are blessed with magnificent views of the coastline, ocean and gardens, or the mountains and rice-fields, or – in the case of the master bedroom – a panoramic vista in all directions. While all of the bedrooms feature white walls and simple furnishings, each portrays a theme inspired by the Indonesian culture. Wherever you choose to sleep, the melody of the waves will lull you to sleep.
Babar is the master bedroom, characterised by glass doors on two sides, enabling access from both sides of the building. It features a Yogya stone floor under a soaring roof with open beams. It is furnished with a kingsize bed, which is fitted with a deep mattress resting on a base of antique ironwood planks. There is also hanging space, a fitted sideboard, wooden statues from Kalimantan, and a desk next to a wide window, overlooking the ricefields and Mt. Batukaru. There is a broad sunny terrace at the front of this room, offering wonderful views of the coastline and the night sky.
Accessed by glass doors, the ensuite bathroom is light and airy, long and spacious, with picture windows positioned on three sides to maximise the stunning views. The bathroom is fitted with double washbasins, mirrors, a toilet, and double rain showers.
The Toraja guestroom is located on the upper floor overlooking the ocean. Accessed via sliding glass doors, it features a soaring roof and is furnished with a kingsize bed, oriented towards the sea. There is also a pair of funky stone pebble lamps, artefacts from Toraja in Sulawesi, and a dressing area and hanging space behind the bed.
The adjoining sunny, open-air bathroom is bordered by Yogya stone walls for privacy, yet still offers views of the rice fields and mountains. It is fitted with a bathtub for two in a cream terrazzo surround,and twin washbasins, a large wall mirror and a toilet, all sheltered from the elements by an overhanging roof. There is also a raindrop shower open to the sky, complete with a handheld shower, a black pebble floor with stepping stones, and a fringe of yellow irises.
The Asmat guestroom is located on the ground floor facing the ocean and a pretty corner of the garden with a collection of stone statues from Sumba. The room features glass doors on three sides. It is furnished with a kingsize bed, coffee wood lamps, a colourful painting, and a shelf and storage unit immediately behind the bed.
The adjoining garden bathroom is fitted with a bathtub for two with a huge, cream terrazzo surround, twin ceramic washbasins, a walk-in raindrop shower with the additional provision of a handheld shower, carved wall mirrors and a toilet hidden behind a low louvre door. The private garden features a small lawn, planted with torch ginger, shrubs and palms.
The Dayak guestroom is a spacious family room on the upper floor facing the ocean. It furnished with two king-size beds and features hanging and storage space, and two sets of sliding glass doors at the front. The room is decorated with artefacts from the
Borneo’s legendary headhunters, the Dayak tribesmen, who inhabit Kalimantan’s deep interior highlands.
The ensuite bathroom is the same as the bathroom adjoining the Toraja guestroom.
The Agung guestroom is located in the single-storey wing with views of the mountains and rice fields. It is furnished with twin beds that can be pushed together, and features built-in hanging space in one corner and storage shelves behind the bed. It is named after Mt Agung, Bali’s highest and most sacred volcano, which can be seen from this bedroom on clear days, especially in the mornings and evenings. A painting of the mountain adorns one wall. Sliding glass doors open to the gardens on two sides of the room.
The pretty garden bathroom is fitted with twin washbasins, a toilet and a raindrop shower that is open to the stars. The garden is planted with an ancient frangipani tree.
The Ganesha twin-bedded guestroom and ensuite bathroom is located in the single storey wing with views of the mountains and rice fields, and is a mirror version of the Agung guestroom. It is named after the Ganesha statue in the adjoining garden. Ganesha is the elephant headed Hindu god of making things happen and the remover of obstacles.
