The Longhouse

The Longhouse extends over three floors, each connected by a lift to the ground floor parking area.  On the upper floor are the living and dining rooms, kitchen, master bedroom and swimming pool.  Below are three guest bedrooms and the home cinema, plus, at a slightly lower level, two twin bedrooms separated by a sitting area that opens to the garden.  Lower still, the villa’s mezzanine level is home to a spa room, gym, kids’ play area and the staff quarters.

Carved into the wall of pale local stone that forms the villa’s backbone, little alcoves display statues and paintings evoking the epic story of the Ramayana, and passageways dotted with intimate seating areas and open stairways link spaces together.

Each of the six air-conditioned bedrooms is inspired by an island or region of Indonesia, and ornamented with unique textiles, artefacts and antique jewellery. All have private outdoor areas (either garden or terrace) and extensive views. Features common to all rooms include flat-screen 26-inch satellite TVs, walk-in wardrobes and ensuite bathrooms with large rain showers.


At the entrance to the Bali master suite, magnificent carved wooden doors open onto a generous study/sitting room. Beyond, the bedroom is furnished with a bamboo, king-size four-poster bed, and embellished with Balinese objects d’art.  Glass doors fold back to a plunge pool and balcony with views matched by those from the large tub in the adjacent ensuite bathroom.  In a private garden beyond the bathroom is a cascading waterfall and outdoor shower.


Located just below the Bali master suite, the spacious Lombok bedroom is surrounded by fishponds and a frangipani-filled courtyard garden.  The four-poster king  bed is accented with olive green hand woven brocade and the room is furnished with antique wood pieces.  A tub overlooks a thicket of heliconia and glass doors open onto the gardens and a cushioned day bed.


The cosy Sumba bedroom is circled by a private veranda.  A rustic dark wood four-poster bed is draped in mosquito netting and colourful hand woven Sumbanese ikat and furnishings include a beautiful wood-carved love seat.  The bathroom has a lustrous sheen thanks to creamy-hued onyx floor tiles and hand basins, and a mirror framed in glistening onyx tiles.


This large room evokes the Sumatran jungle, with soothing green décor and a sturdy king-sized bed adorned with silk brocade woven with gold thread.  Elephants are embroidered onto cushions topping a sofa that converts to a single bed .  The opulent bathroom has gleaming black stone walls and a copper basin.  Outside, on a timber deck, is a bathtub carved from river rock, fringed by a bamboo fence, lush foliage and dangling lanterns.

East Java

On one side of a sitting area that opens onto to the garden, this twin room (convertible to king) is identical in size to West Java, but varies in décor.  Colour-themed in earthy browns, East Java features a beautiful carved wall panel originally made to hold one of Java’s most revered ceremonial objects – the kris knife. A glass sliding door opens onto the garden.

West Java

Across the sitting area, West Java, also a twin room (convertible to king) is identical in size to East Java. Blue batik fabric covers the beds in this room, which is decorated with antique Wayang puppets, a colonial-style wrought iron lamp and fabulous batik prints in the bathroom. A glass sliding door opens onto the garden as well.


Colourful plants fringe the thatched pavilions that form The Longhouse’s living and dining areas.  Beneath the softly whirring fans of the open-fronted lounge, plump-cushioned sofas make a comfortable vantage point for soaking up the views (binoculars are thoughtfully provided for those who want to zoom in on the action) and a circular six-seater table is positioned for informal dining or game-playing.

The adjoining dining room is bright and cheerful with fold-back glass doors creating a semi-outdoor dining experience as they welcome in a gentle breeze.  An enormous solid saurwood table seats 12 and a pre-loaded iPod provides music to dine by.

The villa’s state-of-the-art, air-conditioned home cinema is equipped with a 52-inch TV screen, DVD player and surround-sound system, and furnished with a huge lounge suite and plenty of ottomans. After enjoying a delicious dinner prepared by the villa’s talented chefs, what better than to retire to the cinema, put your feet up and be entertained in complete comfort.

On villa’s mezzanine level is an air-conditioned gym equipped with a treadmill, Swiss Pilates balls and yoga mats. Also on this floor is a children’s play area furnished with a massive daybed and equipped with a dolls’ house, books, train set and games to keep younger guests happy, and the spa room with its twin massage beds and outdoor bathtub.


Stretching the length of the lounge on the upper floor of the villa, the stone-tiled, 12 x 4 metre infinity pool offers spectacular views from its cooling waters, and a corner sun deck is topped with twin sun loungers. The villa’s terraced gardens are a delightful mix of lawns and flourishing foliage, where daybeds and a beautiful pergola draped with flowering vines provide plenty of quiet spots for holiday relaxation.
