Breezy living areas, high-end luxuries and plenty of antique charm - here’s why we love this oasis-like abode in South Bali.
We love sleek and chic luxury villas. But there really is nothing like staying in a palatial Balinese-style abode that captures the heart and soul of Indonesia’s age-old traditions. We’re talking soaring alang-alang thatched roofs, towering hand-carved doors and antique ironwood dining tables big enough to fit the whole family plus friends. And you know what’s even better? When you get all of that, as well as modern-day home luxuries.
Well, that’s why we’ve fallen head-over flip-flops for Villa Kapungkur – a five-bedroom private villa from Nakula Hospitality Management that merges high-end facilities with romantic antique charm. Think enormous semi-open Balinese style pavilions, traditional Javanese daybeds, oversized sofas and lush tropical greenery all around a 20-metre swimming pool. Oh yes, we can’t get enough of this majestic island abode.
You’ll love it because… Villa Kapungkur features lavish, Javanese heritage-inspired designs embellished with antique furniture, age-old artefacts, and a grand, hand-carved door. It’s a breathtaking tribute to some of Indonesia’s oldest traditions, seamlessly merged with modern day luxuries (hello espresso machine!). Not only that, Villa Kapungkur comes fully staffed with a dedicated team at your disposal, including your very own butler and a personal chef to cater to your every whim and desire.
You’ll want to try the… in-villa massages that are carried out by Jari Menari – Bali’s award-winning team of all-male masseuses and practitioners. You’ll not only get to experience the famous Jari Menari massage in the comfort and privacy of your very own five-star villa, you’ll get to listen to the sounds of chirping birds and tropical wildlife while you’re at it. Oh yes, Villa Kapungkur’s massage beds sit beneath a breezy Balinese gazebo beside a trickling pond and waterfall, ensconced by blooming bougainvillea plants and Balinese flowers.
Come back for the… exclusively prepared in-villa dining experiences. With your very own personal chef on-hand, you and your family and friends can tuck into an unforgettable culinary feast that’s cooked exactly to your liking. And with so many dreamy settings that transform into the most magical evening setup, you can go from poolside cocktails to a long-table dinner before a bottle of wine beneath the stars. Heaven!
