Villa Oost Indies - Joglo and pool

About

Amidst the glitzy boutiques, buzzing beach bars and chic restaurants of Seminyak’s golden triangle, Villa Oost (‘East’) Indies is a veritable oasis of lush tropical greenery.  In these days of sleek modern minimalism, this lovely villa harks back to more traditional times, offering a true celebration of Indonesia’s rich culture and heritage.

Villa Oost Indies - Bathroom

The two-storey Javanese colonial-style sleeping pavilion is constructed of vintage teak, and wrapped in long shady verandas furnished with lazy chairs.  The owners have several art galleries in Bali, and the villa’s hand-picked antiques include stone statues of Hindu deities, wardrobes of teakwood, sumptuous silks, Oriental artwork and hand-crafted ceramics.  The living pavilion is itself an antique – a restored 100-year-old joglo (traditional wooden building) from Java that was once part of a nobleman’s house.  The swimming pool that surrounds it is fringed in tropical flowers and cascading vines, while the sprawling lawn beyond is bordered by ornamental trees, bamboos and palms.

Fully staffed, and with three spacious bedrooms, Villa Oost Indies is well set up for families.  Kids will have a blast splashing around in the lagoon-style pool and playing in the gardens, and a private chef (available at extra charge) is on hand to prepare special kids meals, as well as gourmet feasts for adults.  Our helpful manager and villa attendants will make you feel right at home and treat you to the hospitality that Bali is famous for.

With such a peaceful setting it may seem hard to believe that the villa is right in the middle of Seminyak, but you need only stroll to the end of the shady lane to discover miles of golden beaches and all the fascinating boutiques and world-class wining and dining establishments of Seminyak.

Villa Layout

Villa Oost Indies is entered via the living and dining joglo, which opens onto the pool and gardens beyond.  To the right is a two-storey sleeping pavilion with a bedroom on each floor and a bar on the lower floor.  The kitchen is adjacent and looks over a small courtyard.  The separate guest wing bedroom is above the kitchen, accessed by stairs at the end of a garden path.

Living Areas

Indoor living

A beautiful, century–old Javanese joglo (traditional teak house) creates an atmospheric living and indoor dining area at Villa Oost Indies.  The joglo is cooled by wooden ceiling fans and open on three sides to the lagoon-style pool that wraps around the building.  A circular dining table seats eight, and a wooden sofa and rattan planters chairs are positioned to overlook the pool and garden.

A teak-panelled bar nestles on the ground floor of the two-storey pavilion with five bar stools, a fridge and sink.  From here, a door leads through to a well-equipped kitchen with black granite counters, oven, coffee maker and stunning antique side board brimming with crockery, ceramics and vintage silver tea pots.

Outdoor living

The villa’s eight-metre, lagoon-style pool flows around the joglo pavilion and is fringed by tropical plants at one end and an ancient frangipani at the other.  Beyond the pool lie manicured lawns bordered by tropical shrubs, bamboo and pandanus.  Four deck chairs stretch out below sunbrellas amidst the trees and a rustic outdoor bench table for eight is set in a shady grove.
