Villa Cocogrove in Seminyak, Bali
Designed by innovative architect Ian Chee, Villa Coco Groove is an chic 3-bedroom luxury villa in the heart of Seminyak that offers space and seclusion, along with a mix of traditional Balinese and modern minimalist style. Tall walls ensure the utmost privacy, while the expansive grassy knoll, shady coconut grove and open plan spaces allow you to experience tropical island nature at every turn. The Singaporean owner has also contributed to the vibe here with a worldly collection of antique furniture, exotic artworks and books. For a relaxing getaway in stylish Seminyak, Villa Coco Groove is an oasis of calm and cool just steps from some of Bali’s most vibrant shops, restaurants and nightlife.
Cocogroove, one of the premier luxury Bali villas in Seminyak, is a privately owned 3 bedroom villa located in the heart of town just behind the renowned Oberoi Hotel in Bali and a 10 minute walk from the beach, 6 minutes walk from Ku de Ta.
Enchanting can easily be used to describe this beautiful villa, with it’s huge manicured lawn, eponymous Coconut Trees and large swimming pool. It is the perfect combination of modern, minimalist architecture and Balinese elements. Artifacts and treasures collected from around the Indonesian archipelago by the Owner adorn the walls and each piece of furniture has been carefully chosen with an innate sense of style. Seminyak, with its high-scale lavishness, is mere minutes walk from the house with the best in dining, shopping and entertainment. And yet the property is tranquil and quiet.
In a developing area of Bali – in Seminyak, in the south of the island, the owner of this plot of land wanted an open, convenient, private luxury villa. Seminyak is rich in culture and he wanted to maintain some references to traditional Balinese dwellings (though not at all overtly).
This house, completed in 2004 and with a total built-up area of 550 square meters, was conceived as a series of bales (the Balinese version of a gazebo) linked by a covered walkway and orientated to take advantage of the prevailing winds, using large cantilevered overhangs and plated pergolas for shade and protection from rain.
One entire wall of the compound is lined by plantings of small trees. The focus of the house is the living shelter, roofed but open on three sides. In the centre of this is the sunken seating area, into which steps lead down from two opposite corners. Early morning sunlight streams into the living room, with its dining table at left. The area faces out on to the lawn, swimming pool and a small bamboo bale in traditional style, thatched with alang-alang grass, yet luxuriously cushioned within.
The in-house Chef consistently wins accolades from our guests for his delicious dishes – but if you can wrench yourself away from the comfort of Cocogroove, the glittering world of trendy Seminyak awaits a few steps away!
