Villa Karishma is a 5-bedroom luxury villa located in the Umalas area of Bali (about 10 minutes from Seminyak). The decor is an eclectically rich, tasteful and confortable assortment of furnishings and art from around the world.
The villa offers a dedicated movie room with custom projection and home entertainment system. Interior features also include a fully-equipped kitchen, deluxe ensuite bathrooms, TVs with satellite connections, onsite local telephone and wireless internet throughout the villa.
The property features an interior court yard with water gardens and mature palm trees, and in the rear of the property, a large pool and sun deck area, as well as a Balinese-influenced balé for lounging.
Blessed with a generous landscape that extends down to a river embankment amidst the fertile rice terraces of Umalas, Villa Karishma is a stunning property that embodies the concept of tropical living. It has been designed as a stylish retreat for discerning travellers to slow down and escape the pressures of a metropolitan lifestyle. Whether guests choose to soak up the sun by the private pool, become immersed in a good book while relaxing in the riverside lounging pavilion or entertain friends over drinks at the bar; days spent at Villa Karishma truly celebrate quality time out.
This luxury FIVE bedroom property has been created with meticulous attention to detail and can comfortably accommodate the needs of up to10 adult guests. Access into the villa is via a paved laneway set back from the street to ensure complete privacy. An unimposing entrance gate opens up to reveal a spacious garden environment with a waterway running the entire length. Towering palms and indigenous flora have been planted randomly and are surrounded by manicured lawn. The main body of the villa envelopes this area and consists of several bedrooms with glass paneled doors that slide wide open when desired.
Master Suite Sanctuary
The master suite and an additional bedroom are located on the villa’s L-shaped second storey complete with wrap around terrace. While all bedrooms at Villa Karishma are well appointed with bathrooms and modern comforts that invite restful slumber, it is the master suite that truly represents personal indulgence. A sanctuary for the senses, this iconic suite features a contemporary décor of furnishings in black leather, quirky pieces of artistry and a cow hide rug upon a polished timber floor. The en-suite bathroom features an oversized Jacuzzi tub with angled jet sprays, separate shower recess, double vanity and walk-in wardrobe.
The property is literally divided through the middle by a free standing structure that integrates a high-tech gourmet kitchen and breakfast alcove, bar, dining and living environment. Surrounded entirely by sliding glass and timber panels, this tasteful setting is bathed in natural sunlight and is fully air-conditioned to beat the heat of the day. Discreetly hidden within the kitchen is a CCTV monitor that gives guests peace of mind that the villa is fully secured at all times.
A bar has been created out of white blocks of paras Jogja and topped with black stone to serve pre-dinner cocktails or cater for social gatherings. A solid wood dining table, surrounded by an eclectic array of mismatched chairs, gives the setting a unique edge. The far end of this open-plan space is reserved as a sitting area with cushioned sofas and armchairs arranged around a low rise coffee table.
The back section of the property features another two bedrooms that are orientated over an enormous swimming pool edged by a sun deck. It is here that guests can spend lazy hours enjoying the riverside ambience and Bali’s tropical weather conditions. Several reclining lounge chairs have been set up around the pool with sunbrellas for those who prefer some degree of shade. Nestled in a far corner of the garden is a Balinese styled pavilion that provides a quiet niche to read or take pleasure in an afternoon siesta.
