This masterpiece of Balinese architecture and design, perfectly portraying its rich culture and history, is something of an icon in the area. And rightfully so.
Covered walkways link one thatched building with the next, as you move between the elegant spaces of Cassiopea, one vast living area to the next. The huge open plan sitting room is perfect for gathering all the group, be it friends or family, for some quality time, with huge sofas, armchairs and a stunning vaulted thatched ceiling. A vast, fully-equipped modern kitchen with two central islands and direct access to the garden is the perfect place to get everyone involved in meal prep – or simply leave it to the highly skilled in-house chef to rustle up a range of Western and Indonesian dishes. As well as a games room with a pool table, there is also a study to give you a little extra quiet and privacy. And there is even a bar from which the fabulous staff can serve cocktails!
There are five elegant bedrooms, all of which ooze grandeur and luxury and include ensuite bathrooms, exquisite teak furniture, flat-screen TVs, and a DVD player. Four have one double four-poster bed each, while the fifth has two single four-poster beds. The master bedroom is located on the first floor and enjoys a fantastic terrace space and grand bathroom with a majestic bath. The four other rooms, only one has a bath while the other three have showers, and each bathroom is designed in an open-air style to give you a sense of freedom as you shower (almost) outside!
A huge dining table on the terrace marks one of the many boundaries to the vibrant garden space. A perfect spot for an alfresco supper under the stars, with ceiling fans, beautiful mood lighting and only the sounds of birdsong and the wind through the trees. Between the fabulous traditional buildings and the vast private pool lies only a manicured lawn and a series of old trees. A Balinese bed sits at the far side of the pool. Truly the perfect spot for a rest or even a little meditation. There are sunbeds for all around the pool, perfect for a lazy afternoon. A Jacuzzi is perhaps the cherry on the cake of this magnificent villa.
