Detailed description: Deep in the heart of Bali, perched on a venerated spur of land at the confluence of two rivers, is the stunning hideaway known as Villa Vajra. This modern, spacious villa sleeps up to eight guests and offers the ultimate in luxurious accommodation within a totally private and exclusive, close-to-nature setting. Villa Vajra is situated in the quiet traditional village of Sebali in the district of Kaliki, an hour and fifteen minutes drive from Ngurah Rai international airport, and about ten minutes drive from the cultural town of Ubud. The property and gardens are landscaped into the slopes of the steep valley, and the approach, via a raised wooden walkway through undisturbed rice fields, gives no clue to the remarkable design of the villa, or the breathtaking views of the jungle and river gorge.
Constructed with high quality local materials, the property combines the very best of Balinese architectural elements with contemporary flair, elegant finishes and modern amenities. The villa is comprised of two buildings, linked on the upper level by a lotus pond and pergola. A serene Buddha statue stands within the lotus pond and white thunbergia cascades over the pergola-covered walkway leading to the Master Bedroom and Studio.

The Master Bedroom is characterized by elegant furniture, teak floors, and glass on three sides to maximize the awesome views of the jungle and river valley. Sliding glass doors open on to a timber balcony, fringed by a food forest of fruit trees. The en-suite garden bathroom is dominated by a large black terrazzo bathtub. Everything possible has been considered for the comfort of the guests; the luxurious open-air bathtub is sheltered by a thatched canopy, and privacy is maintained by a wall. Wooden shutters, like hatches within the wall, can be opened to reveal a view of the rice fields, and a larger hatch beside the bathtub offers the delightful alternative vista of the jungle. Colorful local artwork adorns the walls of a passage way leading to the Studio Room on the same floor. Situated on the western side of the villa, this room boasts a panoramic view of the rice fields. The Studio doubles as an additional bedroom and includes an en-suite toilet and shower room. The adjacent building, across the lotus pond, holds the Study Room, with a flat screen satellite TV, DVD player and a quality sound system for the entertainment of the guests. This room also doubles as an additional bedroom with an en-suite shower room. A cathedral window in the Study Room overlooks the main living and dining area on the lower level, which is accessed by an external cantilevered staircase. The Guest Room is situated at pool level, within the building that houses the Master Bedroom and Studio. Furnished with a dreamy four-poster bed, the Guest Room features a Palimanan stone floor, windows with sliding doors facing the valley, a dressing room, and a garden bathroom with a black terrazzo tub, shower and toilet. The Master Bedroom, Guest Room, Studio and Study each feature individually controlled air-conditioning units and powerful ceiling fans to keep the rooms pleasantly cool. There are telephone lines for IDD calls and in-house calls in each room, and also safety deposit boxes.

The 12 x 8 metre, Living and Dining pavilion extends the full height of the building and features a marble floor underneath a vaulted roof. Furnished with rattan chairs and sofas, this pavilion represents open living at its very best, and is a fantastic venue for parties, receptions and functions. A small aviary is situated to one side, and a large hatch links the dining area with the fully equipped kitchen. Next door is a toilet and a shower, and the laundry and staff quarters are situated at the back.

A further example of environmental conservation is the water recycling system that has been devised for the 8 x 3 metre infinity edge swimming pool, the outdoor Jacuzzi, and the graceful cascade flowing down from the lotus pond above. At this level there is an open terrace overlooking a grassy meadow within the valley. Another wooden deck juts out to one side and a narrow path leads down to the river past a small temple and a coconut grove. On one side is a secret sanctuary, a traditional open pavilion, known as a bale, with a thatched roof and a raised teak floor scattered with cushions for relaxing. On the other side, a fully equipped gym provides the facility to maintain a daily fitness routine while appreciating the wonderful views. At night the villa takes on a different persona, with cleverly concealed lighting. Guests will appreciate the fresh cool air, and will be serenaded by a chorus of frog song. There is a barbeque terrace at the front of the villa beside the rice fields and parking space for up to six vehicles. Due to the steep hillside elevation, the experience of the villa is not recommended for disabled people or young children.
