Around the pool are several semi open-air living and dining areas with comfortable lounges and several dining spots, including a large family dining table set against comfortable banquette style seating. The modern open plan kitchen and dining areas lend themselves to relaxed al fresco dining experiences. Culinary delights can be served via the Smeg oven and chilled wine is always available from the bank of Boretti refrigerators and coolers.
A circular table with rattan chairs makes for a super spot to soak up the morning sun over breakfast and a large deeply cushioned sofa acts as a wonderfully cozy area in which to while away an hour or two. A stand-alone relaxation pavilion, complete with oversized rattan loungers is the perfect place to enjoy some post dinner relaxation with a glass of wine in hand, or to experience a heavenly foot massage whilst catching up on some holiday reading!
The two-storey sleeping pavilion includes two spacious master suites on the lower level, complete with large en-suite bathrooms. The upper level has been designed with families in mind and is comprised of two spacious bedrooms, each with their own large en-suite bathrooms, divided by a centralized dressing room that is perfect for storing all holiday kaftans and sarongs. Sliding doors enable the whole of the upstairs to open into one large area or alternatively remain closed to retain separate bedrooms and total privacy. Enter the children`s room through a sliding door to two sets of specially designed bunk beds, complete with reading lights and fun cushions. The children`s room can be configured into the 4th master suite.
Designed by Stuart Membery, a well known Australian residing in Bali, Villa Lulito`s architecture and interiors have been heavily influenced by the Old Dutch Colonial style villas still evident in places such as Singaraja, (Indonesia`s former colonial capital) and in and around the coffee-growing hills of Munduk. The vision was to create a stunning plantation style setting that was comfortable and exuded old style chic. They envisaged singular island elegance with white on white interiors and bursts of color as seen in cushions and artwork, fitting their brief of ``Ralph Lauren meets Indonesia``.
A spacious swimming pool works as a lap pool by day and transforms into a dramatically lit central feature by night, sparkling with blue and white LEDs, surrounded by tropical border plants and hurricane lamps that altogether create a charming ambiance throughout the villa. A touch of European elegance adds to Villa Lulito`s charm with classical columns set around deep verandahs and large windows, maximizing Bali`s wonderful tropical sunlight.
Careful thought went into all materials used in construction, for example the use of ironwood on decking and roof tiles, which ages into a lovely soft grey over time. Local materials were used wherever possible. Tongue and groove paneling and balustrades, carved from local Bankerai wood, helped to create the boathouse feel and the perimeter walls were built using rugged local Bukit stone.
Interiors are pristine white. Lounges covered in off-white linen with splashes of color seen in scatter cushions. Rattan lounges and stunning bamboo beds add to the relaxed Asian ambiance with Dutch East Indies travel posters and watercolor illustrations completing the look.
In addition to the superb architecture and interiors, Landscape Gardener Bruce Johnson has created a spectacular array of tropical plants bordering the property, which bloom into a kaleidoscope of colors under the tropical heat!
