Villa Des Indes I is a sublime Bali luxury villa: a fully staffed, four-bedroom multi-pavilion residence within Seminyak's exclusive Laksmana estate with a heritage teakwood joglo at its heart. This palatial living space – plus the open bar pavilion, air-conditioned dens, glamorous bedrooms and bathrooms – features a fascinating collection of antiques and artefacts. Contemporary luxuries abound, and the accomplished staff provides stellar service. Within the tropical gardens is a 21m lagoon-style swimming pool and traditional bale. With Petitenget beach a five-minute walk away, along with Ku De Ta, La Lucciola, and Bali's best eateries, boutiques and spas, this is a perfect villa for families and friends. Des Indes I is nestled within the luxurious and secure Laksmana estate in Seminyak – the perfect spot for those who enjoy the beach, seek a sophisticated nightlife, and delight in dining out in classy restaurants and shopping at designer boutiques. Stroll to Petitenget Beach – just a few hundred metres away – to surf, swim in lifeguard-patrolled areas, sunbathe (there are sunbeds for hire), or take long seaside walks. Enjoy dazzling sunsets at Ku De Ta – still the place to see and be seen; in the late afternoons the vibe is animated and upbeat with a hip clientele indulging in the sunset ritual of cocktails, Champagne and oysters, while resident DJs fuse the mood with chill-out sounds. The villa is also a few minutes' walk from other internationally acclaimed restaurants and bars, including Potato Head, the Breeze at Samaya, and La Lucciola – this reviewer's long-time favourite for leisurely lunches and romantic dinners. Further up the street is Sarong and Metis – with myriad restaurants and cafés on the way. Seminyak Square and a tantalizing collection of chic designer boutiques are just around the corner.
