The Ylang Ylang is ideally situated in a rural setting on Saba Beach in the province of Gianyar, northeast of Ketewel, and 20 minutes drive from the historical village of Sanur. The Sanur-Klungkung bypass, from Seminyak to Candidasa, positions the villa within easy driving distance of most of Bali's tourist attractions, spas, shops, restaurants, nightspots, and three of the best golf courses in the world.
The diversity of Bali presents everything from diving, cruising and trekking, to adventure sports and theme parks. Horse riding takes place at the neighbouring Saba stables, while family attractions in the area include the nearby Bali Safari & Marine Park, and the Odyssey Submarine Adventure, based at Candidasa.
The Ylang Ylang is 40 minutes drive from Bali's international airport, 15 minutes from the silversmiths' village of Celuk, 25 minutes from the cultural town of Ubud, and 45 minutes from the trendy Seminyak area.
The Ylang Ylang is characterized by a central, two-storey living and dining pavilion additionally comprising the kitchen and the studio on the ground floor, and a gallery on the upper floor, as well as a rooftop meditation deck, accompanied by a rooftop massage and spa treatment area.
The pavilion opens onto the garden and swimming pool, which is flanked on either side by a pair of symmetrical wings, incorporating a total of six bedrooms.
Living and Dining
The Living & Dining Pavilion is the heart and social hub of the villa. With two floors, open sides and a soaring roof, it is cooled by the cross ventilation of natural sea breezes, as well as by ceiling fans. The central section is furnished with daybeds, sofas and low tables. A black and gold theme, rich designer fabrics and flowing curtains combine to create a soft and sensuous mood. Chairs and a card table positioned to one side create another area for relaxing.
At one end is a large dining table for up to 14 dinner guests next to a panel of gold painted mirrored tiles. A splendid staircase leads up to a timber floored gallery, at the front of which, centrally positioned on a balcony overlooking the garden and pool, is a luxuriant daybed; this intimate lounging area, complete with folding glass doors, offers fabulous views accompanied by the ceaseless murmur of the waves. On one side of the gallery is a rooftop meditation deck, and on the other side a shady rooftop massage and spa treatment area, furnished with cushions. A guest washroom is situated just outside the main living area.
The right and left wings of The Ylang Ylang present six ground level bedrooms, centred on a large courtyard pool with unobstructed sea views. The spacious bedrooms all feature cool terrazzo floors under high roofs. Sumptuous interiors are characterized by mirrors, canopied beds, artifacts, sculptures and recessed mood lighting. Silk covers, blackout curtains and mosquito nets are fashioned from the best Italian designer fabrics.
Each room is equipped with an iPod dock, telephone and safe deposit box. Bathrooms feature hand carved stone statue and freezes, and are equipped with weighing scales, hairdryers and a generous array of the Ylang Ylang's own shower & bath products made from natural ylang ylang ingredients.
The two Ocean View Master bedrooms are each furnished with a king size bed, a dressing table, a TV and a DVD player; the adjoining bathrooms are fitted with walk in rainshowers, twin washbasins and sunken baths, offering a moonlit bathing experience under a pyramid glass roof.
Each master suite boasts a private terrace with its own private plunge pool. Adjacent to the master bedrooms are the two Queen Bedrooms, each with an ensuite bath and shower. Adjoining doors from the Queen Rooms open into the two Junior Rooms, each with twin beds and ensuite, sunny, glass-roofed bathrooms with shower and toilet facilities. Two extra beds are available for kids.
Positioned at one end of the Living & Dining Pavilion, the air-conditioned Studio is a state-of-the-art home theater, where guests can laze in front of a large cinema screen, supported by a top of the range surround sound and music system, and a projector for showing movies and DVDs, in addition to satellite TV channels.
