Just 300 meters from the famous surfing beaches of Echo Beach, this stylish villa is an example of elegant, modern Balinese life.
Villa Asante is set in glorious walled gardens full of stately Travelers Palms, flowering gingers and frangipani trees. The pleasant symmetrical design – a two-storey building flanked by a pair of open-sided living and dining pavilions that gaze across the pool to the rice terraces outside the lawn of the river – is the creation of international architect Ross Franklin and interior guru Dean Kempnich. They have found the perfect balance between super-cool open-air living spaces and comfortable air-conditioned bedrooms, with lots of nice space and quiet corners to get away from the crowd.
This is the perfect villa for families and groups of friends. If they are tired of cavorting in the pool, playing table tennis or PS3, strumming the guitar or watching movies, they can go to the beach and ride the waves during one of the famous surf breaks of Bali, or enjoy the sports facilities of the nearby Finnish Recreation Club *. And if a day of shopping in Seminyak or a trip to the Elephant Safari Park is attractive, a car and driver is available for a maximum of eight hours a day (at a nominal rate).
An integral part of the Asante experience is the extent to which guests enjoy themselves. The well-trained staff with extensive experience (many have been with Asante since the beginning) includes an experienced chef, who is a kitchen specialist and serves spectacular dishes throughout the day. Both butler service and security are offered 24 hours a day and massage therapists and babysitters can be engaged on request.
Asante means “thanks” in Swahili and is close to the Bahasa Indonesia word for relaxed (“santai”). One thing is certain: if you leave Villa Asante, you will be both relaxed and grateful.
