The Akara Villas complex is a peaceful oasis nestled in the hearth of Petitenget, on Bali’s south-western coast. This quite, safe, fashionable area is twenty-five minutes drive from the international airport, and convenient for all of the main shops, tourist attractions and vibrant nightspots.
The villas are just s few minutes walk from the sweeping Seminyak Beach, well-know for its world-class surf breaks and panoramic coastline views. A wide choice of internationally renowned fine dining restaurants, including the famous KuDeTa, Hu’u Bar, Living Room, and La Lucciola are also all within a short walking distance.
Description of Villas
Akara Villas comprises nice contemporary one bedroom villas, together with one executive three-bedroom villa, each with a private swimming pool. The villas have been carefully constructed to very high specifications, utilizing local materials, combined with modern amenities and top-quality fixtures and fittings. Designed by Dean Kempnich, the style combines the very best of Balinese architectural elements with contemporary flair, bold decor and elegant finishes.
The villas offer total privacy with a blend of outdoor living around the pool and air-conditioned comfort in the bedrooms. Each spacious, luxury villa sits discretely within its own secure walled garden, accessed by a private entrance. Rich fabrics, Indonesian artifacts, modern sculptures and stylish, comfortable furnishings grace polished terrazzo and natural wood floors, while colorful local artwork adorns the walls. Guest needs are channels, together with a DVD and quality sound system. There is also a TV in each bedroom, a safe deposit box, and a thoughtful array of bathroom amenities.
Each swimming pool is lined with green Sukabumi stone, flanked by an ironwood timber deck, and presided over by bale – a traditional Balinese relaxation pavilion. These raised, breezy gazebos are furnished with deep cushions, and are perfect for chilling out and reading a book. Sunny courtyard gardens are planted with sweet-scented frangipanis and flowering tropical shrubs.
Open-air living and dining pavilions, with broad Serai stone pillars, are positioned adjacent to fully-fitted Western kitchens, each equipped with an oven, a four-burner gas hob, a refrigerator, a good range of utensils, and quality tableware. The air-conditioned bedrooms feature warm, honey-colored parquet floors and glass doors that admit plenty of natural light, opening poolside or onto an upstairs balcony deck.
Each is furnished with a canopied queen-size bed complemented by a dressing area, complete with plenty of hanging and storage space. The sumptuous semi open-air bathrooms are characterized by cream marble walls and floors, twin ceramic washbasins, powerful rain showers, and oversized bathtubs.
The master-suite sized bedroom in each one bedroom villa is sited within its own pavilion, linked to the main living area by a covered walkway. The executive three-bedroom villa villa boasts an alternative open-air dining area, and a glass-enclose, air-conditioned audio-video room.
All of the villas are completely self-contained, the one bedroom villas presenting the perfect holiday accommodation for couples and honeymooners. Yet the close proximity of each villa to one another also means that the complex is ideal for larger groups of people, or families, who want to be close to each other while still retaining an element of independence and privacy.
Staffing, management & Maintenance
Tucked away down a quiet private lane, the main entrance to Akara Villas is the location of a car parking area and a fully-staffed service area with 24-hour security, daily housekeeping, maintenance and gardening with a carefully selected team of highly-trained staff. The management company takes care of the long-term, on going, service of the villas, maintaining each to top-class Western standards.
