Villa Salimett - Canggu, Bali
Surrounded by rice fields in the semi-rural landscape of Canggu, exquisite Villa Salimett offers a unique sojourn in traditional Indonesian heritage, complete with antique Javanese Joglo houses converted into four detached bedrooms, carefully sourced antique pieces and a magnificent living pavilion. Traditions successfully blend with luxurious comforts, such as the 20m infinity-edge pool, all designed using quality natural materials and the most discerning of tastes.
Just a few minutes’ walk from Bali’s dramatic south-west coastline, Villa Salimett is close to several excellent beaches renowned for their surf, while Bali’s most cosmopolitan and happening enclave, Seminyak, is just a short drive away.
Set amongst Canggu’s picturesque rice fields, this spectacular four-bedroom property is evocative of a traditional rural community from many moons ago, so it’s quite a surprise to discover that Villa Salimett was only completed in January, 2010.
An architectural masterpiece, the villa comprises four antique Joglo-style dwellings transported from Java and a magnificent open-sided living pavilion. Rectangular shaped, constructed almost entirely of fine old teak wood and topped with a distinctive cone-shaped serap (ironwood) roof, the Joglos have been subtly modified to form four detached bedrooms; luxuriously appointed and extended with porches and modern-style tropical bathrooms. Much more than mere places to rest, these authentic dwellings set serenely within the villa’s expansive gardens are infused with Indonesian heritage and individual character and charm.
The living pavilion also boasts beautifully aged timbers - especially teak – and a high serap roof; its traditional touches complemented with antique ornaments and furniture and intricately carved ceilings. Housing the villa’s living / dining area, kitchen and TV lounge, this expansive open-sided, open-plan building is, however, stylishly contemporary, presenting a contrasting modern-Indonesian look. Although a marvelous example of architectural heritage, Villa Salimett doesn’t forgo present-day comforts, which include a 20m infinity-edge pool, iPod docks and plasma satellite TVs.
Berawa Beach is just a five-minute stroll from this peaceful sanctuary of exceptional taste, and several world-class surfing beaches along this lovely south-west coastline – including surfers haunt, Echo Beach – are easily accessible by car. Bali’s premier sports and leisure venue, Canggu Club, is two kilometres away, and fashionable Seminyak is approximately twenty minutes’ drive south.
With its grand black wooden doors adorned with intricate carvings and capped with traditional serap roof, the entrance to Villa Salimett sets the scene for what awaits beyond. Just inside, the Zen-infused water feature leads through to a superb single-storey pavilion. This open-sided expansive building forms the heart of the four-bedroom property; although built in traditional Indonesian style, it presents a predominately contemporary look. The villa’s living / dining area, kitchen and small TV lounge are contained within, as well as an adjoining storage area, laundry / utility room and guest washroom.
From here, gardens and simple paving stones lead down to a center-stage infinity-edge pool with an adjoining and highly unusual pool bar constructed from antique woods. The pool area is edged by expansive and simple stone paving. Tucked away at the far end of the gardens rests a solitary balé (traditional Balinese gazebo). The gardens also reveal the property’s pièce de résistance: four antique-wood bedrooms, originally traditional Javanese Joglo houses, beautifully placed in a rough square formation.
