Imani Villas - Villa Mahesa

3 Bedroom Villa with Private Swimming Pool

Villa Mahesa is the largest of the three villas in the complex, boasting an additional bedroom and an upstairs library presenting breathtaking views of the rice fields and mountains.

The 3-bedroom villa is built in the style of a traditional Balinese compound house. It features four separate thatched pavilions positioned around a large 5 x 16 meter lap pool, within a walled courtyard garden. A spacious square shaped timber sundeck, furnished with sun beds, extends from one side of the pool; two gazebo relaxation pavilions are located on the other side, and a stone terrace borders the Master Bedroom.

The swimming pool is lined with aquamarine Java stone and is fed by a bubbling whirlpool positioned at one end. The garden is characterized by a flat green lawn planted with fragrant flowering frangipani trees, pandanus, palm trees, spider lilies, heliconia and red hibiscus. There is also a sandy area for children to play, and a secluded garden area with a small room provided for a children's nanny. An ornamental pond - complete with a modern sculpture, pots, bulrushes and purple lilies - runs alongside one wall in-between the relaxation gazebos.

Living & Dining Pavilion and Library

A two-storey building, positioned at the far end of the swimming pool, houses the open-plan kitchen and living and dining areas downstairs, and a glass encompassed library upstairs. Cooled by ceiling fans and gentle breezes, the living area features a grey terrazzo floor and is tastefully furnished with a deeply cushioned mustard-colored sofa, a table, an arching chrome standard lamp, and a wooden cabinet housing a satellite TV and DVD player.

A powder room with toilet and washbasin is situated at one end of the pavilion, and a square table with six chairs is positioned in the dining area. The pavilion also integrates an open-plan kitchen behind a black terrazzo bar with an attractive metallic mosaic façade and pendulous lanterns. The kitchen is equipped with a six-burner gas hob, a refrigerator, a microwave, and a good range of utensils. The pavilion is fitted with bamboo blinds, which can be dropped for privacy and shade.

An open stone staircase with non-slip pebble wash steps leads up to the library. This large room surely earns its place as the focal point of the property, and features a terrazzo floor and a chocolate and cream décor. It is encompassed by glass windows and floor-to-ceiling doors, which slide open on two sides to create an open-air ambience. Alternatively the doors can be closed for a cool air-conditioned experience.

A balcony with a low stone wall wraps itself around three sides of the room, and the view from here is spectacular. The rice fields stretch out in every direction, and on a clear day the vista extends to the mighty volcano, Gunung Agung, in the east, and Uluwatu in the southwest, while the central mountain range, incorporating Mt. Batukaru, Mt .Sengayang and Mt. Pohen, can be seen in the northeast. This is a truly magical spot for relaxing with a book or an afternoon cocktail.

Master Bedroom

The air-conditioned Master Bedroom is housed within its own single-storey self-contained pavilion, bordered by a stone sundeck adjacent to the pool. The bedroom features a benkirai wood parquet floor, a flat screen satellite TV, and a king-size built-in bed with coordinating built-in bedside cabinets. There is also a delightful cushioned window seat, a desk and a chair, and a dressing area comprising fitted wardrobes with woven woodskin and mirrored doors. The bedroom is also equipped with a safe deposit box, a ceiling fan, and tea & coffee making facilities.

Frosted glass doors connect the bedroom with the romantic en-suite garden bathroom, boasting an oversized cream terrazzo bathtub within a sunny open-air space surrounded by high walls for privacy, and planted with lush tropical foliage. The pebble wash floor is non-slip. The bathtub, toilet, wall mirror and vanity unity, compete with "his and hers" white porcelain washbowls, are all sheltered from the elements by a flat roof, with a wooden pergola-style canopy over the bathtub supported by four posts. The powerful shower, equipped with a rain shower head, offers a truly alfresco experience.


The two remaining bedrooms, with their en-suite garden bathrooms, are each housed within twin self-contained pavilions, located on the opposite side of the pool to the Master Bedroom. Each boasts a pair of cushioned relaxation balés on either side of each entrance. The pavilions are mirror images of each other; each houses an air-conditioned bedroom and en-suite garden bathroom. Each is furnished with a king-size bed complemented by matching bedside cabinets in dark wood, a desk and a chair, a cozy cushioned window seat, and fitted wardrobes with woven woodskin doors, full length mirrors and storage units. Each is equipped with a TV with local channels, a safe deposit box, ceiling fans and tea & coffee making facilities.

The en-suite garden bathrooms are typical of the romantic Bali style and are accessed by frosted glass doors. Each bathroom boasts an oversized cream terrazzo bathtub within a sunny open-air space surrounded by high walls for privacy, and planted with lush tropical foliage. The pebble wash floors are non-slip. The bathtub, toilet, wall mirror and vanity unity, compete with white porcelain washbowl, in each bathroom, is sheltered from the elements by a flat roof, but the powerful showers, each with rain shower heads, offer a truly alfresco experience.

The Style

The style blends modern Balinese architecture with minimalist design and local materials. All of the villas are completely self-contained and secure, with private entrances linked by a walled lane lined with spider lilies and green foliage. The close proximity of the three properties means that the complex is ideal for larger groups of people, or families, who want to be close to each other while still retaining an element of independence and privacy.

The approach to Ariana, Malika and Mahesa Villas is through the traditional Balinese village of Umalas, the narrow country lane then winds through the rice fields for another kilometer before reaching the property. The entrance to the Villas is heralded by a line of palm trees flanking a sizeable parking area, guests are then greeted at an open-air reception pavilion, bordered by an ornamental pond. The locality is dotted with some of the most impressive villas on the island and the sweeping view is enhanced on clear days by the magical sight of the Bali’s mountain range extending from Mt Agung in the east to Mt Batukaru in the northwest. Despite the close proximity to Seminyak, the traditions of rural Bali still prevail; cows are herded through the fields and the sound of ritual music is carried on the breeze.
