Bali Accommodation for the Pampered Few – The InterContinental Bali's New Jivana Villa.


(7/4/2009)

Representatives of the media and Bali's travel industry were treated to a five-course dinner to mark the opening of the Jivana Villa - the splendid reincarnation of the former Imperial Villa into what is arguably Bali's most sophisticated contemporary-styled residence.

Drawing its inspiration from its name 'Jivana,' a Sanskrit word meaning 'life or existence,' the Jivana Villa aims to luxuriously cater to every need of the Bali visitors seeking personalized hospitality.

Shown on Balidiscovery.com is a gallery of photos from the InterContinental Bali Resort new Jivana Villa.



Secluded from the mainstream resort activity located in a quiet seaside corner of the property, Jivana Villa has its own private access and paved driveway flanked by a modern interpretation of a Candi Bentar.

Disembarking from their limousine, guests pass through an impressive double door, stepping into a inlaid-marbled grad foyer with direct access to either a sumptuous living room or to the 2 bedrooms on the second floor, accessed via a spotless white Italian marble staircase.

A stone water-wall backdrop visually segregates the foyer from the main living area. This entire section has been designed as a platform that seemingly floats upon water and is bathed in natural sunlight. Generous creamy sofas are oriented towards a state-of-the-art 42" plasma television with a Bose surround sound system. A grand piano is strategically placed for subtle background music to be played whilst entertaining. A series of artwork depicting vibrant scenes from a traditional Balinese marketplace have been sourced exclusively by the Tony Raka Gallery adorn the walls.

To the right of the living room is a glass-enclosed retreat known as the Love Nest. This sunroom is a comfortable space to lounge on the plump cushioned sofa. Alternatively it is a spot to enjoy a cosy English-styled afternoon tea with sandwiches and sweet treats.

In the opposite direction is an opulent dining room that faces the pool and an ornamental water-wall. Seating for up to ten guests is available with an adjacent preparation kitchen and separate wine cellar ensures prompt and impeccable service.

The outdoor setting is in a class of its own. Sensor system glass doors open to reveal a charming tropical garden planted with palms and native greenery where the leaves dance under the soft caress of a sea breeze. Here an unassuming garden pathway leads directly to the beach where reclining chairs have been set under a shady umbrella for a relaxed day of sun, sea and surf. This area is suitably distanced from other guests to ensure complete privacy.

An oversized swimming pool has been shaped to follow the structural contour of the villa's entire lower level. A contemporary lounging pavilion provides a shady niche away from the sun's tropical rays where guests can enjoy a spa ritual. A Jacuzzi encrusted with mother of pearl mosaic tiles complements an inviting oasis to soak away travel weariness.

The showpiece of Jivana Villa is the two-storey Windsong Pavilion. It is accessed via a staircase as well as a timber bridge that extends from the upstairs master suite over the width of the swimming pool. This elevated pavilion, with its refreshing ocean views, is an inspiring niche for relaxation and intimate dining.

A lavishly appointed master suite occupies most of the second floor. This open-plan suite features a deluxe bed that has ornamental accents celebrating Bali's indigenous artistry. A spacious corner has been designed as a study, balanced with a sofa to facilitate both business and pleasure. The suite is encompassed by a private terrace.

The en-suite bathroom has been designed in pure white marble and incorporates double vanities, a rain shower, customised egg shaped bathtub and mounted television. There is also a walk-in changing room with ample storage space.

A second, smaller guest bedroom and bathroom facility shares the second floor. This bedroom features twin beds in a setup suitable for older children, a personal assistant or a security entourage for a visiting head of state.
