Villa Issi at Seminyak

  • Written by Linda Lim

This architectural masterpiece is located in one of the best addresses in Seminyak, a short stroll from Seminyak beach. Villa Issi is a fabulous example of east-meets-west, where contemporary design sits perfectly in an idyllic Balinese setting. Internationally acclaimed and award-winning Indonesian architect Budi Pradono has created a villa that beautifully combines cutting-edge, contemporary design with relaxed tropical living.

A conversation about Villa Issi is not complete without mentioning the unique light-filtering metal 'skin' that surrounds the upper floor, providing shade from the sun and an ever-changing ambience as dappled shadows flow throughout the day. While the two master bedrooms have views over the treetops, two more rooms are located in a guest pavilion set within the garden and overlook the pool. 

The villa's uber-modern and funky lounge, dining and kitchen spaces feature floor-to-ceiling glass doors that open onto the 25-metre timber-decked pool and gorgeous garden. From a well-equipped gym for maintaining fitness regimes to an elevated 'bridge' deck above the pool for reading and sipping sunset cocktails, there is a spot for everyone. A team of friendly and efficient Balinese staff, including villa manager, private chef, housekeepers and butlers, look after your every need.

If you can bring yourself to stir from your super-stylish surroundings, Seminyak's designer boutiques, hip bars, world-class restaurants and miles of sandy beach, all just a few minutes away.
