Facing the scenic rice terraces of Umalas, Villa Galante is a private oasis within a short drive from Seminyak’s shopping and nightlife. This grand estate is so spacious it can comfortably accommodate up to 14 guests. The six airy bedrooms with timber floors are tastefully decorated with a fusion of elegant Asian influenced antiques and modern furnishing. The rooms are spread out evenly between the main house, the guest bungalow located at the front of the villa and a small antique Javanese house at the end of the garden. The villa effortlessly blends colonial elegance with tropical ambiance while providing all the modern comforts required for a memorable, relaxing stay.
There are four air-conditioned bedrooms located in the main house have flat screen TV and DVD player.
A painting of a Chinese Emperor hangs above the king size bed of the first bedroom on the first floor. The billowing mosquito net are suspended from the high wooden beam ceilings and gently rest on the timber floors. From the tiled veranda, you can sit back and relax in the wooden sofa while enjoying the views of the garden and swimming pool. Stepping into the semi-outdoor en-suite bathroom will feel like you’ve travelled all the way to Morocco with its tadelakt style shower and walls, concrete basin and bathtub. There is ample storage space with all the built in shelves and a safety deposit box.
The second bedroom, also on the first floor, is located in the front of the main house. The four-poster king size bed is enveloped inside the over-sized mosquito net. You can admire the view of the lush front garden from the room’s own private terrace or retire inside the room in the cozy built-in alcove with soft white cushions. Without a doubt, the highlight of this bedroom is the majestic en-suite bathroom with its sunken concrete shower surrounded with antique hand-carved wooden panels and lanterns.
The painting of an elegant Balinese dancer watches over you in the third bedroom located on the second floor. A luxurious wooden king sized bed wrapped with floating muslin drapes to ensure a restful sleep. The orange tones of the reading lamps and ikat cushions reflect the bright orange bathroom walls. After a calming bath, you can sit and unwind on your private balcony with garden views.
White walls, high wooden beam ceiling, french windows, Asian influenced art and wooden furniture are no exception to this fourth upstairs bedroom. Pick a book from the built-in bookcase to read on your private balcony while admiring the view of the swaying trees in the front garden of the property. The plum colored cement walls of the en-suite bathroom combined with a 1930’s tub and octagonal washbasin create a retro-romantic atmosphere.
At the entrance of the property, facing the main house and next to a lotus pond, is a detached guest bungalow with its own private terrace furnished with antique daybeds and a Javanese marriage bed. Inside you’ll find a four poster king size bed hidden underneath a billowing mosquito net, a writing desk and a semicircular niche built in the wall covered with white cushions. The semi-outdoor en-suite bathroom is Moroccan inspired with its intricately stone carved windows and alcove shower. Take a relaxing bath in the freestanding bathtub whilst enjoying the views of your own private garden.
Despite its more rustic feel, the antique Javanese house, at the end of the garden in the back of the main house, has the same modern comforts, such as AC, flat screen TV, DVD player, like the other rooms. Enjoy the balmy evenings sitting from your own private veranda with paddy fields and garden views. Then prepare a soothing bath before turning in for the night in your mosquito-netted king sized bed.
