Full Description: Whether the name Umah di Beji (“Bath of the Gods”) refers to this five bedroom
villa’s signature swimming pool, dramatic floating bathtub or the river that
runs the entire length of the grounds is rather lost in the midst of time. What
is certain is that this magnificent property represents one of Bali’s finest
vacation properties that was featured in a Financial Times article regarding
luxury villas in Bali.
Accessed via its own 150 metres driveway and bridge, Umah di Beji enjoys a most
secluded location amongst the padi (rice) fields. The villa itself is set in a
picturesque location, with gardens forming a natural amphitheatre. Various
buildings, all with traditional Balinese alang-alang (thatch) roofs, frame the
gardens and house the five king-sized suites. The mature garden and numerous
water features range down towards the dramatic, lava rock swimming pool.
Umah di Beji is a magnificent, tranquil property of exceptional visual appeal.
In fact, the size and design of the grounds provides for many secluded seating
areas making this villa the perfect location for large groups of friends or
family to congregate together or enjoy private holiday time.
A large pavilion houses the main living space; an elongated open-air living and
dining room with the enclosed kitchen at one end. With room to easily
accommodate a twelve-seat dining table, centered below a gorgeous teak
chandelier, and an eclectic mix of sofas and easy chairs, you begin to get a
sense of impressive scale. Complimentary antique pieces from Lombok and tasteful
modern wall hangings combine to create an ideal location for entertaining large
or small groups of guests. The state-of-the-art kitchen is usefully located
directly off this area so staff can easily serve and clear.
An informal dining bale (Balinese gazebo) complete with a dining/games table and
daybed is positioned atop the river bank, and makes the ideal spot for afternoon
drinks and quiet repose. The sound of slow flowing water from the river below
and the dancing of bamboos in the breeze provide a natural serenade. A massage
bale, just in front, completes the ensemble.
The master suite is enclosed in a private structure at the edge of the property,
with a wooden deck atop the riverbank and a comfortable daybed from which to
treasure this natural retreat. The interior of the suite is the epitome of
modern Chinese luxury, housed beneath a high, dramatic ceiling displaying the
intricate craft of alang-alang. The room is dominated by an enormous bed that is
headed by a full-length floral wall hanging framed by dark teak beams and a
beautiful example of Chinese ceramic work. Overlooking the river is a corner
lounge area with soft furnishings and a study room, featuring an impressive vase
collection set in built-in wall boxes and a striking golden Buddha lamp.
In keeping with the overall style of the villa, water plays a key role in the
opulent design of the en suite bathroom. The focal point is a teak bale housing
a sunken Kerobokan stone bathtub flanked by male and female Pembantu (helper)
statues. A rectangular lotus pond with stepping stone access surrounds the bale.
At night, with candles, you almost feel like you are floating amongst the lilies
as you soak away a hard days relaxing! There is also a shower room, a completely
enclosed lawn area for private sunbathing and a separate decked bale, ideal for
Ti Chi or meditation.
The second and third bedrooms share an outdoor lounge with natural furnishings
and immaculate gardens. Both rooms also boast private terraces, including a
breakfasting terrace in the third bedroom. The white washed rooms host examples
of Indonesian batik designs and stamps. The second bedroom has a
mosquito-canopied king-sized bed mounted on a teak platform and lavished with
layers of white cushions. The third bedroom is of similar design with twin beds.
Sandwiched between the Oriental glass doors of the bedrooms and en suite
bathrooms, are dressing rooms with sunken square basins.
The fourth bedroom has a sumptuous four-poster bed and the interior design
combines a mixture of woods and natural fiber furnishings. The structure housing
bedroom five has ornate Balinese carved doors, a private seating deck
overlooking the river valley and the rice terraces beyond. Furnishings include a
teak four-poster and an antique mounted Javanese topeng (mask) set on the
All bedrooms benefit from en suites which are among the best examples of all
fresco bathrooms. Each boasts a sunken stone bathtub and gargoyle showers within
a private garden where you can indulge the senses in a warm shower under a
star-filled evening sky.
All bedrooms are equipped with VCD players and sound systems can be found
throughout the living and dining areas. The master bedroom boasts a DVD player.
The deep 15m x 5m infinity edged pool rises against the falling slope for
dramatic effect. Lava rock stone tastefully blends into the garden surround and
is fronted by a smaller pool complete with gargoyle fountains that resemble the
royal hot springs found elsewhere in Bali. A wooden sundeck reaches back from
the poolside towards the boundary river below. Patterned pathways, throughout
the landscaped grounds, lead to many delightfully secluded spots and examples of
both Buddhist and Balinese Hindu statues.
Located within easy reach of Bali’s Southern beach resort of Seminyak and the
luxurious restaurants, clubs and boutiques in Oberoi, Umah di Beji is an
excellent base for holiday rest or Bali exploration. Specifically, the villa is
