About The Villa
From the moment you enter the traditional carved wooden Balinese doorway at Villa Padi Karo, yourealise that this is a special family getaway. The gardens will captivate you immediately with neat stone and pebbled pathways flanked by opulent flowering heliconia, giant torch ginger and fragrant frangipani trees. Stunning tropical accents are on display with crimson Bougainvillea, adenium and hibiscus flowers. Ponds are full of darting goldfish and crowned with beautiful lotus flowers. Then there is the 15 metre long, two mete deepfree form pool, which is surrounded by more than a dozen seating options from pool loungers, outdoor dining, a recessed bench and hand carved day beds plus café-style arrangements. Guests are quick to realise that Villa Padi Karo can easily accommodate eight people with complete privacy and discretion. Two traditional Balinese bales – or raised cushioned pavilions – are perfectly placed to take in the stunning view over the adjoining rice paddies and sea breeze. Hereis the place to kick back and read or relax by the pool.
The two-level villa has a functional kitchen located near two outdoor dining areas – one under a sun umbrella and another undercover by the large staircase.
The villa has three large bedrooms and a twin room. Privacy is abundant for family and friends looking to share their holiday time while maintaining an exclusive retreat. A large pavilion is tucked behind the pool area and has formal dining for eight people and a large living space with sofas and comfortable seating plus cable television and music. Three of the four walls are glassed and retractable creating a traditional open-living space that is delightfully old-style Bali design.
While the villa is set in the bucolic beauty of rural Bali, everything is just a call away. The villa has a dedicated friendly staff including a manager, cook, housemaids, a gardener, security and a pool attendant. Breakfast is prepared fresh from the kitchen daily and other meals are easily arranged by request. The English-speaking staff will be happy to shop for you every day andwill produce receipts. They will book a private driver or taxi, help with the kids and even offer incredible insights into the local culture and Bali’s famous customs and ceremonies. Arrangements are in-place with two professional day spasto ensure that guests can have in-villa massage treatments and beauty therapies.
