Villa Zelie – Five Bedrooms Villa in Canggu Bali
Villa Zelie is a private Eden exuding heritage chic. Moments from the beach, with La Laguna and Finn’s Beach Club an easy walk away, the villa is perfectly placed between Seminyak and Canggu, Bali’s hotspots for wining, dining and shopping.
Differentiating Villa Zelie from other Canggu villas are its style, scale and beachside location. Beautiful teak and ironwood buildings, inspired by traditional Javanese joglo pavilions and gladak houses are embellished with handcrafted furniture and treasures selected by the villa’s owner, a well-known Parisian designer. Four open-air living pavilions and five luxurious bedrooms mingle around a 20-metre swimming pool in the expansive terraced garden. Air-conditioned bedrooms are dreamy with canopy beds, spacious Bali-style outdoor bathrooms and verandas perfect for morning coffee and a quiet read.
Villa Zelie’s landscaped garden spans 3,300 square metres across four terraced lawns. Koi ponds frame the entrance and lotus ponds with tall padi padi grass glisten below tidy walkways at the foot of the garden. Stone steps and paths are studded with lights that twinkle like a reflection of the stars from dusk until dawn. A comfortable tropical ambiance prevails throughout the magical timber-framed living and sleeping pavilions, and guests are lulled into total relaxation with the attentive care of a villa manager, chef and butlers who will cater to every need.
Villa Zelie is ideally set up for families and groups of friends to socialise around the stunning swimming pool, share family-style meals, or watch movies projected onto the big drop-down screen. But equally there are plenty of peaceful private places to retire to when a little privacy is preferred. Older children and teens will love the independence of walking along the quiet residential street to the beach, less than 150-metres away. This well-maintained paradise lends itself as a venue for intimate events, and weddings for up to 40 guests can be arranged with prior notice. Villa Zelie is a work of art and a truly exceptional place to stay.
Bedroom at Villa Zelie
The master suite at Villa Zelie has an iconic joglo roof over a wide veranda. But don’t be fooled by its traditional appearance; the luxurious interior is equipped with air-conditioning, modern track lighting and a television.
More like a chamber in a Javanese palace than a standard double bedroom, this honeymooner’s heaven has a king bed below a hand-carved tumpang sari timber ceiling. Gorgeous gauzy drapes hang from the outer beams at a generous distance from the bed creating an intimate space for slumber or snuggling while watching a movie. Making things even more romantic, the enormous open-air bathroom has a stone tub, rain shower, matching dressers and twin washbasins. A pair of silk kimonos hang in the walk-in closet.
Four individual, king-bedded guest suites are nestled within the gardens, each with charming sitting areas on front verandas facing the pool. All bedrooms have ceiling fans as well as air-conditioning, walk-in closets with full-length mirrors, and large outdoor ensuite bathrooms with tubs and rain showers. They are decorated with unique furniture and eclectic hanging lanterns, each room having its own accent colour – orange, white, Royal blue and French violet.
Living Areas in Villa Zelie
Indoor Living Areas
Bali is known for barefoot luxury and the level of stylish comfort at Villa Zelie is off the chart ahh-mazing. The living, entertainment and dining pavilions are completely open-sided, so the lush tropical ambiance is welcomed in. All are kept comfortably cool by soaring roofs with traditional Javanese hand-carved beams and ceiling fans.
The spacious living pavilion is on an elevated platform that appears to float within a moat of serene Koi ponds. Deeply cushioned couches overlook the sprawling lawns. The adjacent entertainment pavilion features a timber-topped bar, cosy lounge sitting area, movie projector, backgammon table and bookshelves packed with books, board games and fascinating antiques.
Meals are enjoyed in the delightful open-sided dining pavilion, framed by fragrant gardenia bushes, giant taro, traveller’s palms and other exotic plants next to a tidy lawn. The room is equipped with Sonos speakers and decorated with a museum-calibre art collection featuring Indonesian tribal pieces, sculptures and ceramic pots. The massive wood table seats up to 14 guests on Javanese benches with hand-carved embellishments and elegant cushions.
A modest kitchen at the head of the dining pavilion is equipped with modern appliances. A large island block at the centre is edged by tall stools, where guests can enjoy a snack or chat with the chef.
Outdoor Living Areas
While the swimming pool (which includes a shallow area, ideal for young children, on one side) glimmers in full sun, the pool house beckons with the promise of repose in the shade. It’s the smallest and most casual of the open-air pavilions at Villa Zelie. Driftwood seabirds hang from the pendopo roof. Daybeds face the radiant stone-edged swimming pool and there are baskets full of fresh towels. Inviting indeed.
Double sunbeds hem the lengths of the swimming pool; some enjoy dappled sunlight beneath towering frangipani trees whilst others are positioned for maximum sun. They look super-stylish on the lawn, flanked by symmetrical pisang kodok plants and with petrified wood side tables within arm’s reach.
