Des Indes II - From the pool edge

Villa Layout

Accommodation at Des Indes Villa II is in five pavilions arranged around two swimming pools. The social heart of the villa is the huge open-sided living pavilion surrounded by a koi pond and facing a large balé across the main pool. Set into one corner is a two-storey building with seating area, bar, kitchen and guest washroom downstairs and, above, a bedroom suite with a private terrace. Next to this is a sleeping pavilion with two large bedroom suites opening onto the pool terrace. To the other side of the main living pavilion is a second sitting area, a small alfresco dining area and two further bedroom pavilions, which face each other across the second pool.  A wall of plantation shutters allows these two bedrooms and the second pool to be discreetly closed off from the rest of the villa if extra privacy is sought.

Floorplan

Living Areas

The huge fan-cooled open-sided living pavilion – its soaring teak-lined roof supported on massive wood pillars – is the villa’s social hub. Opening onto the swimming pool and surrounded on three sides by koi ponds dotted with islands of heliconia blooms, this is Bali-style living at its best. Old-style cane sofas and planters chairs are arranged around coffee tables in two distinct seating areas, and ten guests may gather around the teak dining table in cushioned comfort.

Across the koi pond is a bar area with antique style seating and, behind the service bar, a very well-equipped kitchen with sophisticated coffee maker and wine fridge. On the other side of the main pool, facing a sun terrace fringed with sun-loungers, is a large cushion-covered bale.

A second fan-cooled living area, richly decorated with antique Indonesian furniture, faces the villa’s smaller swimming pool.

Bedrooms

Des Indes II - Guest bedroom two

Des Indes Villa II’s five bedrooms are spacious and handsomely designed, with teakwood-lined vaulted ceilings, custom-designed display cabinets, and polished wood floors embellished with oriental rugs. Four feature a king-size four-poster beds swathed in mosquito netting, while twin beds (that convert to a king if preferred) rest under a towering mosquito net in the fifth bedroom.

The colonial-style furniture and striking art and artefacts provide  a rich visual counterpoint to the ultra-modern 47-inch curved TVs with satellite channels and DVD players. The upstairs bedroom has its own roof terrace, two ground floor bedrooms open onto the main pool terrace, and two face each other across the second pool. All five feature fans and air-conditioning as well as a beautifully decorated air-conditioned marble bathroom with dressing area, bathtub, twin basins, and walk-in shower enclosure.

      Where do we start with how wonderful our stay was! We brought our two daughters and future son in law with us. The staff was so warm and wonderful. Erick, Yudha, Summer were all so great. Wayan was also very sweet and helpful. Her banana pancakes were awesome. Made was an amazing cook. All the food he made us turned out incredible. Santi was very helpful, kind and on top of all of our needs. It was an incredible place to spend 15 days for our 30th wedding anniversary. Bali and Villa Jemma will hold a very special place in our hearts. We hope to return to Villa Jemma again. Thanks Made for the cooking instruction, can’t wait to get home and make nasi goreng!
