The grandeur of a plush Hamptons estate meets the laidback, island vibes of a tropical jungle at this four-bedroom Seminyak gem - part of the Elite Havens luxury collection.
Tropical, jungle-hugging villas in Bali are forever on our swoon list, but not all of them are practical when it comes to easy living, be it the lack of cool, air-conditioned indoor spaces, or the surge of lush foliage flowering from every nook and cranny.
But there is one particular villa in Seminyak that has managed to find the perfect balance between exotic island living and homely-yet-lavish luxuries, and that is The Baganding Villa – a stunning, fully staffed, four-bedroom pool villa that even has its own ocean-view rooftop bar for nightly Sauvignon sunsets.
Set in a private tropical garden tucked away on a quiet lane, The Baganding Villa is so elegant and carefully designed that this palatial, multi-level masterpiece feels like home – if home happened to be a five-star mansion-like villa just moments from Seminyak’s best beaches, restaurants, boutiques and spas…
With its perfect mix of both indoor and outdoor spaces, this villa was built for living the good life in Bali. Kick back with a book on one of the verandas or poolside lounge chairs, look out over the treetops from the roof terrace with that cold, crisp Sauvignon, or feast on freshly cooked Asian and Western cuisine prepared by your own personal in-villa chef, either outside on the deck or inside within the gorgeously decorated dining room.
And since The Baganding Villa sits in the heart of Seminyak, the island is your oyster when it comes to ticking through your bucket list. Surf lessons, cocktail hotspots, designer boutiques and traditional temples are right on the doorstep – or simply stay at home and soak up the luxuries of this jungle-hugging gem.
