Villa Melah in Melayang, Bali
Experience the magic of Bali from the comfort and privacy of your own antique teak house from East Java. This style of house was usually reserved for the nobility or wealthy merchants. Entrance to the 150 year old house is from steps at the side which lead up onto the long verandah and through large double doors. The verandah is perfect for lounging and watching the rich bird-life including Java kingfishers, coucals and cranes or perhaps a beautiful sunset. A monkey may occasionally pay a visit.
The rustic main house of over 100 square meters has a spacious loft-like feel with massive carved pillars and a stunning ornate ceiling centre-piece. There is a king-size bed with a dressing area behind carved panels. A dining table seats 6 and there are several sofas and seating areas. A simple kitchenette along the back wall has a small electric hob and a fridge. Furnishings are a mixture of antique and reproduction art deco colonial style and the glazed floor tiles are hand-made Dutch colonial style from Java. The semi – outdoor bathroom has a copper basin set in an antique door and a brass rain shower. There is a flat screen TV with cable channels, an iPod dock and a DVD player. There is natural cooling with fresh breezes from the river below.
