Luxury villa rental in Bali. Hidden down a small laneway in the heart of bustling Seminyak lies one of Bali’s best kept secrets, The Orchid House. This charming four-bedroom villa, with an additional bedroom that sleeps four children, has a large mature garden and beckons guests with open arms.
Designed by Bali’s leading stylists this family holiday home is an eclectic mix of Asian and Western flavours, resulting in a sublime tropical oasis in the midst of the urban jungle. Breathtakingly quiet, yet only a short stroll from some of the islands finest restaurants, spas, boutiques and bars, The Orchid House is the perfect choice for those seeking a secluded hideaway but one that’s within easy reach of Bali’s best shopping and nightlife.
Located in downtown Seminyak, The Orchid House is an elegant four-bedroom character home set amongst stunning tropical gardens. Unique in appearance and style, this delightful residence can best be described as “British India meets Out of Africa”, lovingly created by the villa’s owners, renowned in Bali for high-end furniture design. Having been the family home for the past 12 years, the villa overflows with exotic furnishings and artefacts. Hundreds of paintings, sketches, photographs and prints by famous artists adorn the walls, while antique rugs, ceramic vases and vintage fabrics inject a unique sense of style. Sympathetic to its surrounds, traditional Balinese materials have been used in harmony with the environment and tropical climate. High vaulted ceilings topped with ironwood shingle and alang-alang thatched roofs, and hard wood floors keep the villa cool, while French-style windows beautifully capture the natural light. The expansive garden with its mature trees, large lawn, 13-metre swimming pool (with optional pool fence) and poolside balé adds to the villa’s beauty to create a sense of space in an urban neighbourhood bustling with activity. Just 100 metres from the villa’s door guests find themselves on Jalan Seminyak, home to some of the island’s best restaurants, spas, boutiques, bars and galleries. However for those who’d rather stay in and enjoy the quiet, The Orchid House offers a multitude of living spaces and comes with a team of dedicated staff, including a highly-skilled in-house chef. The villa is particularly child friendly too, with an additional bedroom that sleeps four children and an abundance of facilities to keep even the most energetic youngsters entertained. At the end of a small laneway a traditional Balinese door opens to reveal a magical urban oasis. A stone path meanders through tropical gardens consisting of lush lawns, tall trees, flowering plants and a 13-metre swimming pool, to the main two-storey house with its ironwood shingle and alang-alang thatched roof. The front doors open to an inviting entrance hall which sets the scene for the whole villa. Beautiful artwork adorns the walls and polished wooden floors gleam in the sunlight that beams through the open French-style shuttered windows. A staircase off the entrance hall leads up to the master bedroom and children’s bedroom, where another set of steps climbs to a rooftop library with delightful views across the garden and surrounding neighbourhood. Downstairs rests the media room, two guest bedrooms, kitchen, breakfast nook, open-plan living and dining room, and large sitting room called the Big room. A cute one-bedroom garden bungalow lies across the lawn directly opposite the main house.
The spacious air-conditioned master bedroom with its white wooden ceiling, hardwood floors, ensuite bathroom, king-size bed and library sitting area is the perfect place for those who wish to unwind and relax while taking in the garden views. The room is also equipped with a ceiling fan and small satellite TV and DVD player. The air-conditioned ensuite bathroom consists of two areas: a dressing room with wooden floors and antique carpets underfoot, plentiful cupboard space and two white basins set in a grey marble vanity; and a light and airy Palimanan bathing area with rain shower and tub looking out across the vivid green foliage. This room is ideal for parents who like to have their children close at hand as the children’s room is accessed directly off the master suite’s dressing area.
The children’s bedroom is divided by a wooden doorway into two separate air-conditioned spaces. The first area is fitted out with a white bunk bed, bright pink furnishings, shelves, cupboards and play space, while an annex features two single beds with white and turquoise furnishings (suitable for children and teenagers only).
Accessed via the media room or garden veranda, the connecting downstairs guest rooms, which are cooled by both air conditioning and ceiling fans, feature green and white hand-painted cement tiles from one of Bali’s most famous artistic villages, Sidemen. The larger room is furnished with a four-poster king-size bed draped in mosquito netting, a floral patterned sofa, watercolours and a scattering of antiques. Curtained doors lead to the twin guest room which has its own garden access through bi-fold doors. Both rooms share a rustic ensuite bathroom featuring a terrazzo bathtub and handheld shower, small settee, twin basins set in a beige marble vanity and a large whitewashed teak cupboard for storing clothes. As well as opening onto the garden, the bathroom has a clear glass ceiling above the tub to give the effect of bathing under the stars. These two guest rooms are ideally set up for a family with young children.
Across the garden from the two guest rooms stands the air-conditioned garden bungalow – discreetly located for those craving extra privacy. Featuring a high vaulted ceiling and alang-alang thatched roof, terracotta-tiled patio with reading chairs, a king-size four-poster bed with mosquito netting, sofa adorned with green and white striped cushions and an antique writing desk, this little house oozes character. Traditional Balinese doors lead to an ensuite with a terrazzo tub and handheld shower and twin basins set in a teak vanity. The bathroom also opens onto the garden – the perfect place for taking a relaxing bath. One of the highlights of The Orchid House is its stunning garden with swaying coconut palms, towering trees and exotic blooms. A rare luxury for a Seminyak villa, this beautiful home boasts large lawns big enough for a game of soccer, badminton or croquet. While the children are kept well entertained with the tree house, swings and the 13-metre swimming pool which has a special shallow section, adults can lie back on the sun loungers and daybed or take refuge in the poolside balé. Near the pool is an undercover dining area (seats ten) which makes an idyllic setting for a barbecue on a balmy night. By the main entrance lies a lily pond with an elephant water feature that creates a soothing background ambiance.

Luxury Villa Rentals Italy acts only as agents for accommodations and assumes no responsibility for property loss or damage, nor liability for injury, accident, delay or irregularity which may be occasioned either by reason or defect in any vehicle or the acts of any company or persons engaged in conveying the passengers to or from their accommodations. If for any reason beyond its control including force majeure, or the sale of the house, Luxury Villa Rentals Italy is forced to cancel the booking made by the client or his agent, best efforts will be made to offer another property of equivalent standard with which the client will be in agreement. If the price of the alternative property is less, the difference will be refunded to the client, but if the price is higher the client must pay the difference. If however, no agreement can be reached, both parties are entitled to cancel. Luxury Villa Rentals Italy will refund to the client only the rental price paid; no other amounts will become due.
Cancellations by You
Any cancellation by the client (for whatever reason) must be in writing (Including email or fax). The effective date of cancellation is the date we receive written notification. If the client cancels after the deposit has been paid, it will lose the deposit.
If the client cancels after the balance has been paid, it will lose both deposit and the balance.
