Internationally acclaimed and award-winning Indonesian architect Budi Pradono has created a villa that beautifully combines cutting edge, contemporary design with relaxed tropical living.
Spend lazy days by the 25-metre emerald green swimming pool, the heady scent of frangipani drifting on the breeze. Work out in the gym and then relax with friends and family around the state-of-the-art barbecue, or enjoy a more formal feast at the party-size dining table, prepared by our top-class private chef. Catch up on the latest movies in front of the 55-inch TV in the stylish monochrome lounge room, or simply kick back on the super-comfortable couches and browse a book as you listen to chill-out tunes on the Bose sound system. And when it’s time for sunset cocktails, head up to the funky timber ‘bridge’ which extends over the pool from the villa’s upper-floor deck.
A conversation about Villa Azmu wouldn’t be complete without mention of the innovative metal ‘skin’ that surrounds the two bedrooms on the top floor. Not only is it functional, providing shade and keeping the rooms incredibly cool, it is a piece of kinetic art in its own right, the travelling sun creating interesting shadows and casting soft, diffused light.
Villa Azmu overflows with aesthetic touches that infuse every stay with personal pleasure: the whimsical fibre-glass bull that takes pride of place in the garden, the unique artworks that have been specifically commissioned and the vibrant soft furnishings, designed and printed by the owners. You will also be looked after, 24 hours a day, by an incredible team of staff, including your highly trained private chef.
The villa is situated in a quiet cul-de-sac in one of Seminyak’s most sought after locations, and you won’t have to go far from your serene haven to find the best restaurants, shops, bars and cafes, with the sweeping expanse of Seminyak beach just moments away.
