The perfect hideaway for a holiday on the "Islands of the Gods"
Singapore-based boutique hotel operator, Lifestyle Retreats, has opened The Santai, a new exclusive all-pool-villa property in Bali.
The resort spells exclusivity with just 11 villas nestled in the sought-after neighbourhood of Umalas, close to picturesque rice fields and local village temples, and just a short 15-minute drive from the shops, restaurants and bustling nightlife of Seminyak.
The Santai’s architects and designers, Studio TonTon, have taken traditional Bali styles and materials, and merged them seamlessly with cool, sleek, modern Asian architecture to create the spacious and beautifully designed villas.
The 11 villas comprise five two-bedroom villas (350sqm) and six three-bedroom villas (550sqm). Guests enjoy 24-hour butler service and a host of dining options – from all-day soft drinks for two under the stars or a communal gather over delicious sharing plates at GONG.
The blue- and green-tiled villa pools are inlaid with small islands sporting frangipani trees and beds of grass. Stone columns stand like sentinels, inscribed with symmetrical patterns and ancient Balinese script.
The lobby and GONG restaurant sit beneath a vast sloping roof, allowing cool Balinese breezes to drift in.
The small number of pool villas means guests experience highly personalised service, from the warm and welcoming staff “family”.
