Villa Bugis

Villa Bugis focuses on affordable villas in top locations in Seminyak:
quiet and secure for a second home, but with all the services and the beach nearby. Good rental income potential and easy to sell again with increased value. There are still a couple of villas available in the Oberoi location, with all the popular restaurants such as Rumors and Trattoria around the corner. The beach and the well-known Ku De Ta restaurant is only 10 minutes walk away. This project is now fully completed and the villas are offered fully furnished and ready to move in or rent out.

Villa Bugis also offer villas off-the-plan, and only in top locations in Seminyak. Now there are prime 700 m2 blocks available, offered at pre-construction price and the buyer has the possibility to have input in the design and choose from materials. The legal structure is done to be fully legal and to secure the way for foreigners, with a 25 year initial lease and the right to extend for a further 25 years.

Villa Bugis is generally more affordable than other villas in Seminyak. For example one of the completed 3-4 bedroom villas on 500m2 land is USD 260,000, and the extension to 50 years is only an additional USD 34,000. The buyer has nothing further to worry about; the villa is fully furnished and equipped for immediate occupation or to rent out. The facilities include broadband internet and cable TV.

Unlike many of the other villa developments, the owner has full control over his villa and is free to make any further arrangements. He can choose to leave all the management to Villa Bugis on a flexible basis and there is no restriction in how long the owner or his friend
s stays in the villa. The only obligation is to participate in the security and road maintenance.

Because of the great locations the villas are easy to rent out and with the relatively low initial investment the pay back time is estimated to be 7-10 years. With a lease of 50 years these villas therefore make a good investment. However, it is more important that the owner is comfortable with the location and the villas, and can be sure to enjoy his visits to Bali and hopefully be able to retire early and settle down in this beautiful place.

Villa Jajaliluna

Villa Jajaliluna located just 100 metres from the magnificent Seminyak beach, renowned for its world-class surf breaks, panoramic coastline views and legendary sunsets. A wide choice of world-renowned fine dining restaurants, including the famous KuDeTa, Hu’u Bar, Living Room, and La Lucciola are all within a five-minute walking distance. The ideal location is also within walking distance of an eclectic collection of designer boutiques. Guests at Villa Jaja-Liluna will be eligible for complimentary membership of The Canggu Club throughout the duration of their stay. Located about fifteen minutes drive from the villa, this is Bali’s first and only international private members club; offering sports, social and leisure facilities, including a state-of-the art gym, a 25-metre swimming pool and a tennis & squash centre.
Introduction :
The symmetrical villa is comprised of three separate, self-contained pavilions positioned around a stunning swimming pool, adjacent to a flat green lawn within a walled courtyard garden. The main 2-storey pavilion houses the living room, together with a breezy upstairs mezzanine and balcony, and four bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms. There is also a family lounge, which doubles as a yoga pavilion, and an elegant dining pavilion. Taking advantage of the villa’s tropical location, all of the rooms boast large teakwood-framed glass doors that can be pocketed away to allow the cool breezes to circulate, thereby ensuring that guests can enjoy the full impact of the surroundings while sheltered from the elements. With its spacious and luxurious atmosphere, Villa Jaja-Liluna is ideally suited for families and small groups of discerning people who want to experience the best of Bali.
Architecture :
Designed by the internationally-acclaimed, Bali-based, Glen Parker of ‘Glen Parker Architects’, in collaboration with the owners who spend much of their time at the property, Villa Jaja-Liluna is a masterpiece that blends the very best of modern Balinese architectural elements with elegant finishes and superior amenities. The architecture of the villa utilises local materials including ironwood shingles for the roof, creamy white Palimanan stone, Bengkirai wood floors, cream terrazzo, white pebbled pathways and decorative pebbled borders. The fresh white walls and furnishings, the warm brown of the teakwood frames, and the cool aquamarine and cobalt blue of the ceramic pool tiles, form the dominant colours, juxtaposed against the greenery of Bali’s exotic plants. The style is based on the
concept of the traditional Balinese family compound with a separate building or ‘bale’ for each function, and a licence to amend the purpose of each in accordance with the comforts of modern living. Recessed lighting creates a romantic ambience at night.
Entrance, garden, and swimming pool :
A snaking pathway leads from a spacious car parking area to the main entrance marked by an unusual pivot door. Visitors will then traverse an ornamental pond flanked by twin palm trees and firebowls. Water plays a central and important role in the agriculturally-based culture of Bali, and this has been reflected in the layout of the property. A stunning swimming pool has been designed to link the three pavilions. The pool flows with the living design and joins everything together, coming right up to the edge of the rooms to create an intimate connection between each pavilion. A timber sundeck extends from the main living area, and Palimanan stone sun terraces are situated opposite each other on either side of the pool. One terrace is furnished with sun-loungers and umbrellas, the other with a barbeque and a large table with bench seats for alfresco dining. Additional shade is provided by two twisting frangipani trees; during the day these sweet-scented flowering trees cast cool shadows, while at night they appear to dance on the shimmering water of the pool.
Living and Sleeping Pavilion :
The symmetrical living and sleeping pavilion is a 2-storey building. The downstairs living room opens directly onto the timber deck bordering the pool. Graced with lazy chairs and deeply cushioned sofas, the white colour theme is broken by the occasional splash of colour and a fine collection of antique framed prints on the walls. This carefully crafted room, with its cool terrazzo floor, easily earns its place as the nexus of the property, and is ideal for entertaining and relaxing. The doors at each end open fully to create a moving air flow, while exposing a sparkling water cascade bounded by a hedge of young bamboo at the back. A guest powder-room, with toilet and washbasin, is located to one side of the water cascade. Big circular cushioned cane chairs rest upon the pool deck at the front underneath a Sunbrella canopy, which provides shelter and shade and is reminiscent of the sails of a boat. A Palimanan staircase leads up to a timber floored mezzanine, another breezy living space furnished with a large daybed and a plasma wide-screen satellite TV and DVD player. This area is fitted with doors that open completely onto a balcony running the length of the pavilion, overhanging the garden. The balcony is also accessed from each of the upstairs bedrooms. Large picture windows on the stair landing overlook the neighbouring rice fields. The main living area and upstairs mezzanine face directly west. Due to the close proximity of the beach, the skyline is uncluttered, presenting great views of the Balinese sunsets complete with the palm trees silhouetted against red and purple skies.
Bedrooms & Bathrooms :
All four air-conditioned bedrooms, with their en-suite bathrooms and cream terrazzo floors, are the same size and shape; two are located downstairs and two are located upstairs, mirror images of each other in keeping with the perfect symmetry. Three of the bedrooms are furnished with king size beds with diaphanous white drapes. The fourth bedroom, upstairs, is fitted out as a children’s room, designed to sleep four kids in bunk beds. Each bedroom is complemented by fitted white louvre wardrobes, white storage units and white curtains. Each en-suite bathroom is entered through an Asian-influenced sliding frosted-glass door, designed to let the light through. All of the bathrooms feature grey streaked marble topped vanity units, huge wall mirrors, ceramic washbowls, toilets, and sizeable glass shower cubicles with powerful rainshowers. One of the upstairs bathrooms features “his & hersâ€� washbasins, while one of the downstairs bathrooms boasts a bathtub, bordered by mosaic tiles in shades of brown and beige. The doors from this downstairs bathroom open into a private walled garden area with an outdoor rainshower, complete with mosaic tiled splashback and washbasin.
Lounge Pavilion :
The single-storey lounge pavilion is a square building characterised by a Bengkirai wood floor bordered by Palimanan, underneath a soaring pitched roof displaying the neat rattan lining on the underside of the roof. The clever design allows guests to completely fold back the doors on three sides to create an open-air pavilion, cooled by natural breezes and ceiling fans. Bamboo blinds can be dropped for privacy and shade. Equipped with a satellite TV and DVD player, this family room is a cosy snug for reading or watching TV or movies, while also doubling as a yoga pavilion. One wall is fitted with white cupboards and shelf units stocked with books; this is flanked by twin alcoves, positioned opposite each other, each one showcasing a Buddha’s head resting upon a pedestal.
Dining Pavilion :
The dining pavilion is the same shape and size as the lounge pavilion, complete with a Bengkirai wood floor and glass doors that can be completely folded back on three sides to create an open-air ambience, cooled by natural breezes and ceiling fans. The mood generated by the unique furnishing styles, however, is very different from that of the lounge pavilion. This elegant dining room is furnished with an attractive square dining table and eight chairs, together with a service counter.
Kitchen & Laundry :
The fully-equipped kitchen, together with a laundry, is housed in the service area to one side of the property, leaving the remainder of the villa free to enjoy the environs of the garden and pool.
