Five-bedroomed Villa Sapi is a masterpiece of design on the peaceful island of Lombok. Bordered by the almost deserted Sira Beach against a backdrop of soothing seas, soaring peaks and sensational sunsets, it presents funky architecture, three swimming pools plus a children's pool, a stand-alone two-bedroomed guesthouse, a tennis court, exemplary service and gourmet cuisine. This is tropical living and barefoot luxury at its very best; a place where guests can truly escape. Villa Sapi is secluded and lusciously private but by no means isolated; prestigious neighbours include the Sire Beach Golf Club, Hotel Tugu and The Oberoi. Set on the white sands of Sira Beach (also spelt Sire) in north west Lombok, Villa Sapi is pretty remote, but thanks in part to its well-connected neighbours – the Hotel Tugu and Sire Beach Golf Club – it has some real treats up its sleeve. Bordering the garden, the beach is safe for all levels of swimmers, while the rock pools at low tide are great for a splash or a marine biology lesson. Jumping on one of the villa's four bicycles is a fun way to explore the local village of Tanjung, and the five-star Oberoi Lombok Hotel is also just a short drive (4km) away.
