Villa Kemah Tinggi in Seseh, Bali
Kemah Tinggi is tucked away in Seseh, a quiet traditional seaside village surrounded by lush green rice fields. Volcanoes emerge dramatically from the early morning mist, the surf pounds the rugged black sand beach, and the village goes about its day to the chorus of cockerels and cheerful voices. This is one of Bali’s most seductive hideaways.
This is a villa with a resort lifestyle where everyone gets to relax. Enjoy the sense of space and open skies and the murmur of the waves in the distance. Savour a blissful massage under a palm tree or swim laps in the beautiful freshwater pool whilst your partner reads on one of its sunny ledges, cool drink in hand. Your kids will love the swathes of lush lawns where they can play with our bamboo football goals or enjoy more traditional games like boules and Swingball. Armfuls of white scented flowers, soaring palm trees and lawns scattered with frangipani trees all welcome you to this tranquil haven. Smiling staff instantly make you feel at home as they ply you with refreshing drinks and cold towels. At Kemah Tinggi you will find the simplest pleasures become an enchanting experience. This is an incredibly special and utterly cocooning bolthole.
The four bedrooms are paired in two separate pavilions and are of equal importance. They are spacious, airy and light, and above all extremely comfortable. The decor is soothingly understated with Balinese accents. The huge white canopied beds are ideal for luxurious lie-ins whilst floor-to-ceiling windows open onto shady fan-cooled terraces with daybeds and armchairs piled with cushions.
The bathrooms are gorgeous and embrace the indoor/outdoor concept which makes the most of tropical living. Three have private walled gardens for showering under the open sky, whilst the fourth has a shower deck on a secluded roof terrace.
Meals may be taken at the 10 seat dining table in the living pavilion, although children often prefer the more relaxed ambience of a shaded table and benches for kitchen suppers. Or perhaps linger over an idyllic lunch whilst enjoying the soft breezes and beautiful ocean views from our thatched bale by the rice-fields.
As the staff set the table for another exquisite meal, luxuriate in the peace and exclusivity of this beautiful home from home. Savour a sundowner from the huge sofas in the spectacular fan-cooled living pavilion or catch up with a favourite movie in the air-conditioned TV room. Add to this an elegant dining table which comfortably seats 10; more than enough sun loungers for everyone, and an attentive staff of 12 who will clean, shop, cook, launder and chauffeur for you, and this becomes the perfect tropical hideaway. Then there’s the delicious and fragrant food prepared by the villa’s three talented chefs at any time of day, as well as the convenience of an in-house bar list.
Bedrooms 1 and 2 overlook the swimming pool and living pavilion and are linked by a covered walkway. Bedrooms 3 and 4 are in two storey building to the rear of the property, with the ground-floor bedroom enjoying its own walled garden. Bedrooms 1 & 3 each have baths and two showers (both indoor & outdoor); bedroom 2 has an alfresco bath and shower; bedroom 4 has an aircon bathroom and a roof deck shower.
