About Villa Satria
Villa Satria lies at the fringe of fashionable Seminyak and is only a short walk from the beach and Bali`s best restaurants, shops, cafes and nightlife.
At our five-bedroom tropical home, contemporary architecture fuses with a prized collection of Indonesian antiques, offering you all the modern comforts of Western living, with a wide choice of indoor and outdoor lounging and dining spaces designed to suit all moods. If you are feeling the heat, then our air-conditioned living area or dining room will be just the ticket. Alternatively, if a tropical, alfresco lifestyle is more your thing, you will relish our vast open-sided bale pavilion with its massive hardwood dining table and sofas. Alongside the bale, at the heart of the villa, is the 17 x 5-metre swimming pool, which will provide hours of entertainment for everyone, either in the water or lazing upon a sun lounger on the surrounding deck.
Each of the villa`s five air-conditioned, ensuite bedrooms is furnished with twin or king-sized beds, while cheerful colour schemes enhance the holiday vibe. The lavish master suite covers the whole of the upper floor of the two-storey sleeping pavilion, and the mini-master suite and four guest bedrooms are situated on ground level.
Satria offers sophisticated facilities, including an office/TV room, a mini gym, a ping pong table and plenty of toys and games for the kids. Outstanding five-star service is provided by our team of professional staff including an on-site manager, personal butlers, a private chef who can cook virtually anything you can think of, as well as 24-hour security for complete peace of mind.
With all this on hand you may be hard pressed to find a reason to venture out, but if you should want a change of scenery you can take advantage of complimentary guest membership of the nearby Canggu Club, with its impressive range of recreational and sporting facilities.
Villa Satria comprises three buildings linked by covered walkways that form a peaceful and private cloister-like garden. The villa`s kitchen and air-conditioned dining and living area occupy a single-storey pavilion, while all five bedrooms, plus an office/television room are situated in a contemporary two-storey pavilion on the other side of the garden. Featuring a splendid, soaring thatched roof, and looking out onto the villa`s 17-metre pool, The Bale is home to a spacious alfresco living and dining area and makes up the third of Villa Satria`s trio of buildings.
All five air-conditioned bedrooms at Villa Satria feature merbau-wood floors and are furnished with king-size beds (three of which can be converted to twin beds), TVs (DVD players are available), iPod docks and reading lamps. The master bedroom is on the upper floor and the remaining four rooms are at ground level, looking out to the pool and garden.
The master suite comprises a study/TV room, bedroom, bathroom, and balcony furnished with a daybed. The bedroom has a centrally positioned king-size bed from which guests can enjoy an elevated view of the garden or watch the 40-inch 3D TV.

The mini-master room or biru (blue) room is furnished with a king-size bed and a daybed/sofa that converts to a single bed for a child. A walk-through dressing room leads to the bathroom, which is similar to the master ensuite but with the addition of a rain shower set in a private and prettily planted pebbled courtyard.
The hijau (green) room is furnished with a king-size bed that converts to twins, an antique dowry chest and bedside tables crafted from traditional sugar presses. An ornately carved antique frame adorns the wall behind the bed. A walk-through dressing room leads to the bathroom, which is fitted with both indoor and outdoor showers.
The kuning (yellow) room is furnished with twin beds that convert to a king-size bed, two antique, low, wooden becak chairs, a pair of suar-wood bedside tables and a dowry chest. A walk-through dressing room leads to the bathroom, which is fitted with an indoor shower.
Distinguished by an antique roof panel, originally from a house in Sulawesi, this room is ideal for kids, presenting twin beds that can be converted to a king, and a 46-inch 3D TV, DVD player and Nintendo Wii, as well as a good selection of toys, movies, books and games. Ensuite is a dressing room and small bathroom with a rain shower.
Villa Satria`s piece de resistance is The Bale, a magnificent 16-metre living and dining pavilion, which runs the length of the pool. Featuring a soaring thatched roof and open on all four sides, it is furnished with two long, solid teak tables that can accommodate 12 diners, a huge sofa and three deeply cushioned armchairs. Speakers in the roof are connected to the Bose sound system in the indoor living room.
Conveniently positioned immediately next to the kitchen, and in perfect alignment with the villa`s shrine, the dining room features a high, teak-lined roof and a large square table for 12, crafted in andesite and suar wood. Two terracotta `candi` - replicas from the Majapahit era - take pride of place to one side. Doors slide open to the garden for a semi-open-air dining experience or can be closed for air-conditioned comfort.
Linked to the dining room via a transitional space that serves as an entertainment area, the living room features a long narrow skylight in the roof that channels the sunlight, and is furnished with a huge sofa and chaise longue. Glass doors slide open to a timber deck on one side and the garden on the other for a semi-open-air living experience or these can be closed for air-conditioned comfort.
