There are two, air-conditioned living rooms at Kalimaya IV, ground floor and upper floor. Each has a marble floor and is tastefully furnished with comfortable sofas upholstered in attractive fabrics, a glass-topped coffee table, soft furnishings, artwork, artefacts and decorative accessories. The upstairs living room also has a pull out sofa bed.
The downstairs living room is equipped with a 42-inch, plasma screen, satellite-channel TV and DVD player and surround sound, thus making it a home theatre. Taking advantage of Kalimaya IV's tropical location, floor-to-ceiling folding glass doors can be closed for air-conditioned comfort or opened up to create a semi-alfresco ambience, cooled by ceiling fans and gentle breezes.
The separate dining room has a marble floor and is furnished with a solid wood dining table, six plush dining chairs, and a decorative wall mirror. Long drapes in a rich two-toned fabric grace the windows, while the room is softly lit with a shimmering, classically-shaped crystal chandelier. The dining room has folded glass doors, which can be opened to enjoy the tropical living experience – with the room cooled by ceiling fans – or closed for air-conditioned comfort.
The stylish open plan kitchen is a dream in polished black granite; fully equipped with a large fridge, Moderna oven, four-burner gas hob, cooker extractor hood and other imported appliances. It also features a bar flanked by four high bar chairs.
Bedrooms & Bathrooms
There are three air-conditioned bedrooms at Kalimaya IV; one is situated on the ground floor with glass doors that open to the pool and garden, while the other two are situated upstairs with glass doors that open to the entertainment terrace. Flaunting a coffee and cinnamon theme, both have timber floors, and both are furnished with four poster king beds, night tables, lamps, cabinets, an iPod dock, a bar fridge, day curtains and black out curtains. Each luxurious ensuite air-conditioned marble bathroom has a non-slip acid marble floor, and is fitted with wardrobes, a huge wall mirror, twin washbasins, a walk-in rainshower, bathtub and toilet.
The vacation villa in Bali also has a broad and breezy stone entertainment terrace accessed from the bedroom and living room on the upper floor. This wonderful party space affords great sunset views; it is furnished with an all-weather rattan table and chairs, and is bounded by a wall and a flowering border of bougainvillea and coral fountain.
Garden & Pool
The walled garden is adorned with statues and water features and Koi ponds, and planted with tropical trees and shrubs, including sweet scented frangipanis, palms, and red-trunked sealing wax palms. It is distinguished by a flat lawn and a 13 x 4 metre swimming pool, with an outdoor Jacuzzi big enough for six persons, and timber pool deck, presided over by a traditional thatched ‘bale’ relaxation pavilion. The king size bale is fitted with a deep day mattress and cushions against a backdrop of a stone carved frieze, portraying the love story of Rama and Sita, the two principal characters of the great Hindu epic, ‘The Ramayana’. The pool deck is furnished with sun loungers and umbrellas, and there is also a two-person far-infrared sauna and an outdoor pool shower. The garden is stunningly lit at night and a gas-fired barbeque is available. The staff service area is hidden out of sight.
FAR Infra Red Sauna
Custom-fitted in the garden is a glass-fronted, far-infrared sauna. The health giving properties of far-infrared saunas are extraordinary, allowing us to activate the sweat glands and eliminate toxins, while also increasing circulation, boosting the immune system, rejuvenating skin cells, promoting weight loss and improving our wellbeing. This totally safe concept in saunas works by emitting infrared radiation similar to the heat from the sun, only without the harmful ultraviolet rays. The advantage of the infrared radiation is that it heats the skin directly without warming the air, resulting in deeper tissue penetration.
