Guest Reviews for villa Adagian
“When you walk through the main doors of Villa adagian, you’re greeted by the inviting 12 meter pool and lush tropical greenery that cradle this little oasis and practically make the walls disappear. It’s evident that the owner, Thibault, has put in a lot of thought into making this an unforgettable Balinese getaway – from the charming modern rustic decor, inviting lounge areas, the well-equipped kitchen (with a coffee machine that spouts the most delicious coffee), open air bathrooms and fluffy pillows and bedding. ”Mireille, Singapore

Your own holiday home to enjoy and explore Bali
As a visitor to Bali, you are probably like me: I want to explore the island, from rice paddies near Ubud to hip bars in Seminyak, while at the same time taking the time to just sit in a great place and relax. This is why I chose to make Villa Adagian my holiday home. Now, you can rent it to make your own holiday house, for 3 nights, a week or even a month.
The villa sits in the serene area of Umalas, in the middle of the golden triangle of Seminyak, Kerobokan and Canggu. It is located at the end of an alleyway (a “gang” in Indonesian), not far from a river. Beautiful high trees surround the walls of Villa Adagian, which gives you full privacy.
The villa is composed of 2 traditional, vintage houses, connected by the pool and the garden. The bigger house is called a joglo: it is a traditional Javanese house, with a pyramid-like roof. One part of the joglo has partitions, this is where you can find 2 bedrooms. The rest of the joglo is fully open on the garden, with the living room, the kitchen and the dining table.
On the other side of the garden, you will find the smaller house of Villa Adagian. This wood building is called a gladak. This is also a traditional, vintage Javanese house transplanted into my Balinese property. This gladak is a world of itself, as I have transformed into a big bedroom, with its en-suite bathroom. Imagine how happy your teenagers will be to have their “own” house within the villa !
As a lover of beautiful things, I also wanted to put into my (and your) Bali vacation home some of my findings in contemporary shops in Bali: quality dinner plates from Balinese ceramics manufacturer Jenggala, designer lamps made in the nearby Tabanan regency, photos of Balinese ceremonies rendered in black and white on canvass.
And as a European, I could not help adding a few things like a decent espresso machine and fine bed linens.
Live Your Balinese Fantasy in the Gladak Bedroom
This bedroom is located in a gladak, an antique Javanese wood house transported from Java and set up at the other side of the garden. The whole gladak had been transformed into a comfortable, air-contionned bedroom. This room offers a very charming Indonesian ambiance, with its traditional ceiling and its wooden floor.
Imagine waking up in this traditional Indonesian house. Slide open its French windows and enjoy the view on the garden, the house temple and the swimming pool. On the other side of the pool, you can maybe see your maid Putu preparing you breakfast. Before heading to the dinner table, freshen up in your own bathroom, separated from the bedroom by a traditional wooden door.
Unwind in the 2 comfortable bedrooms of the vintage Joglo
These 2 bedrooms are located in the Joglo, the bigger house of the villa. The term “Joglo” is often used to refer the distinctive type of Javanese roof with rising central part of roof supported by four or more main wooden columns. Just like in traditional Javanese houses, the bedrooms are located in the dalem part of the joglo, i.e. the inner sections with walled enclosure.
These bedrooms are very similar one to another, with a modern feel. They are comfortable, with air conditioning. The ceiling is very high, airy, in the traditional Javanese style.
Each of these bedrooms have an en-suite, semi open-air bathroom. Imagine yourself taking a shower under the Balinese sun … or looking at the stars at night! The high walls around the house give you 100% privacy.
SOAK IN THE BALINESE NATURE WHILE RELAXING AND DINING WITH FRIENDS AND FAMILY
The living room, the kitchen and the dining room are located in the joglo, the bigger house of the villa. In this traditional Javanese house transplanted in Bali, you will be able to share great moment with your close ones. This large roofed space, with no partition, is open on your private pool and garden. On the other side of the pool, you can see the smaller house, the gladak.
The living room offers two comfortable sofas, a flat screen tv, satellite TV with a dozen English-language channels, an Apple TV to see movies and shows from iTunes, high speed wifi, a collection of DVDs and a stereo system. Relax in the sofas, while keeping an eye on your children who are playing in the swimming pool. At night, watch a DVD while enjoying the cool breeze coming from the garden. If you feel like it, you can turn on the powerful fans attached to the ceiling.
Fancy a nice Balinese meal or just some cream pasta for your family and your friends? The villa has in our full equiped kitchen. Feel free to use the stove and the cooking utensils. We have put in the kitchen some a very simple recipe book full of delicious Indonesian recipes. Your maid Putu can also cook lunch and even for you, there’s a menu in the villa available for you.
By the way, don’t worry too much about breakfast : Putu will prepare it for you every morning. Just wake up, go to the kitchen and ask her for fresh coffee, straight from our espresso machine. Enjoy your cup of real Bali coffee (“kopi Bali”)!
The dining table is located under the roof of the joglo, just a few steps aways from the pool. Gather round friends and family to enjoy breakfast together. When was the last time you enjoyed a meal with all of them, with a view on your own private garden ?
Thanks to the high speed wifi, you can also work on your laptop on this table, while the kids are playing in the garden or while your spouse is getting a massage in one of the bedrooms. Nice view from your new office desk, right?
SHARE UNFORGETTABLE HOURS AROUND THE POOL, UNDER THE TREES
Imagine enjoying your own private pool at Villa Adagian, in full privacy, thanks to the high walls and the beautiful trees overlooking the garden. Sit on the chaises with your spouse, while the kids are playing in the pool. Listen to the wind in the trees, while you are reading a good book or just relaxing in the sun.
The swimming pool is 12 metres long and 4 metres wide. There is a semi-circular shallow pool where you can play with little kids. The rest of the pool slowly slopes down up to 2 metres deep. You can have a real swim in the jade green waters or just play ball with your friends.
Our gardener Kadek takes care of the pool and of the garden every day, so that you can enjoy them in pristine conditions. We have recently planted new trees and flowers, notably aroud the house temple. You will see that our maid Putu will lay down offerings by the temple every day, so that the good spirits protect the house and its guests.
Location: Close to the action, yet quiet area
Villa Adagian is located in peaceful Umalas, just near the hip Seminyak area. Umalas is very popular with long-term expatriates, for reasons that matter to tourists as well: it is quiet, out of the crowds, yet very close to the trendy restaurants and bars of Kerobokan, Petitenget and Seminyak. It is also close to the beaches of Betubelig and Canggu. Umalas is a great place to relax, as well as to go to town to enjoy the nightlife of Seminyak and to leave to explore central Bali (e.g. Tanah Lot temple and Ubud).
Why Villa Adagian?
As a busy person who cares for others, you want the best you can get. It is not “having” per se, but about enjoying an unforgettable experience, about creating cherished memories. With this in mind, my team and I strive to make your stay at your Villa Adagian holiday home as memorable as possible.
