Wonderful Villa Laya in Bali-Indonesia
The gentle sound of falling water pervades the air at Laya.
Fountains, fishponds and a holy spring gush forth and combine with a spectacular jungle setting – one filled with towering trees, tall palms and tropical plants and flowers – to create a serene and natural idyllic holiday retreat.
Only 13 kilometers from the buzz of Seminyak, Laya is built into the bank of the heavily forested Yeh Penet River, offering gorgeous valley views.
The contemporary styled villa is built over three levels with a garden courtyard as its centerpiece and a 15-meter infinity-edged swimming pool at its border.
The two-story main building has dining and sitting areas on both levels providing a choice of formal or informal, outdoor and indoor, settings.
There’s also bar and an air-conditioned TV room opening onto the gardens and pool, Four bedrooms, each with stylish ensuite bathrooms, fill the other pavilions and down at riverbank level is a fifth bedroom, a yoga deck and a bale bengong relaxation pavilion.
Laya is staffed by a manager and a competent team of butlers who will go out of their way to make sure every guest’s need is taken care of, while the in-house chef will whip up any number of creations to satisfy all ages and tastes.
A car and driver is available for up to eight hours a day at a special rate, to whisk you off for a night on the town or a round of golf at the nearby, award-winning Nirwana Bali Golf Club at Tanah Lot, whose cliff-top 7th hole is amongst the most photographed holes in the golf world.
