Villa Amy’s three bedrooms offer a level of privacy that is rare in similar-sized villas in Bali. With soaring ceilings, floors of terrazzo or teakwood edged in acid-washed marble, they are infused with light from towering windows and extra-wide sliding doors that open onto private garden terraces and tropical bathrooms with double basins, rain showers and double bathtubs carved from river rock. All have air-conditioning and overhead fans, iPod docks, flat-screen TVs with satellite channels and DVD players. And throughout each room are scattered glorious oriental and Indonesian antiques, curios, carvings and ceramics.
The palatial master bedroom suite is simply stunning. Between soaring reclaimed teak wood pillars raised on terrazzo plinths rests a king-size bed cocooned by billowing net curtains to create a room-within-a-room. A large sitting area with deeply cushioned over-size sofa and armchairs leads onto a sun-drenched terrace with double sunbed looking over a foliage-strewn pond towards the living pavilion below. Behind the bed is a huge dressing area and to the side are sliding doors to an enormous semi-open bathroom with statement river-stone bathtub set by an antique Chinese screen.
Behind the master bedroom suite and under the same soaring roof is a guest bedroom. Here, twin beds flanked by built-in wardrobe and dressing tables face a small sun terrace guarded by a Ganesha statue and, to one side, a tropical garden bathroom.
Occupying its own pavilion on the lower terrace is a second guest bedroom. Defining the space is the four-pillar core of a traditional joglo, into which a king-size bed sits on a raised terrazzo platform. To one side, a daybed rests between twin desks; on the other, sliding doors open onto a private garden. Beyond the dressing area is a large bathroom under a separate pavilion roof, with a huge river-rock tub for sun-bright or starlight bathing.
