A Hidden Gem for Travellers
Thursday, 25 Oct 2012
Villa Arjuna is a hidden gem for travellers seeking a tropical retreat in one of Bali's most sought after tourist destinations. This charming two bedroom property is part of a secured compound just off Jalan Double Six in the vibrant lifestyle district of Seminyak.
Despite its central location, Villa Arjuna is totally secluded from the street and is set within a lush green garden. The villa has been designed to embody the healthy attributes of outdoor living with its generous sized swimming pool, Balinese gazebo and ample space to soak up the sun.
Villa Arjuna is within easy walking distance to Blue Ocean Beach which is located at the end of Jalan Double Six. It is a popular spot to experience Bali's laidback surf culture, hang out with the locals or enjoy the island's celebrated sunset.
Surrounded by great shopping and dining alternatives, Jalan Double Six is a colourful trade street where visitors can pick up inexpensive cotton sarongs and resort wear. Villa Arjuna is just a 25 minute drive from the International Airport and a great base from which to explore the island at leisure.
The entire villa is a single thatched roof structure that incorporates living and sleeping quarters. The lounge is an open-plan space overlooking the garden with full length sliding doors that open wide to catch the soft whisper of afternoon sea breeze.
This environment includes a dining area for family meals and a home-style kitchen complete with modern appliances. There is also a compact entertainment corner towards the back of the villa for lazy evenings spent watching satellite television or DVD's.
An air-conditioned study cum library surrounded by windows for natural lighting fits neatly into one corner. It has a matching pair of aged timber desks with internet connections and cushioned sofas to quietly read in comfort.
Two identical bedroom suites are suitably positioned to ensure complete privacy and restful slumber. Each features a romantic canopied bed and a large picture window showcasing a walled garden of exotic banana palms.
Both rooms have a large semi-outdoor bathroom facility with a rain shower for spa-styled bathing indulgence. And walk-in closets provide ample storage space for large pieces of luggage as well as new holiday purchases.
Exotic Garden Greenery
Villa Arjuna is blessed with a delightful garden filled with varying shades of tropical greenery. A manicured lawn is a safe area for children to play under the watchful eye of a parent. There is also a Balinese inspired gazebo providing a shady place to relax and recharge.
A full sized swimming pool with its refreshing clear water promises hours of family fun. There is also a wide open space for a collection of reclining loungers that can be re-positioned throughout the course of the day to follow sun's rays.
