When you arrive at Villa Kalisha, you may actually wonder where the villa actually is! Access is via a paved path that cuts directly across picturesque rice paddies, with amazing views of the volcanoes of Bali in the distance. At the end of the path, the land drops away almost vertically and there you get your first sight of Villa Kalisha on the edge of a spectacular jungle gorge.
As you enter the villa the view immediately hits you. The villa almost seems to hang suspended above the steep jungle filled gorge. In all directions there is nothing but trees and vegetation, but 100m below you there are more rice paddies, and in the distance you can see all the way down the gorge to the ocean in the distance.
Beautifully furnished by Christopher Noto, the exclusive Singapore furniture designer for Pagoda House (http://www.pagodahouse.com/) Villa Kalisha is characterised by a collection of contemporary furniture sourced in Bali of understated luxury, with a strong taste of Asian flare. Night time brings a special ambience to Villa Kalisha when the superb lighting further highlights the villa’s breath-taking location.
The Guest Suites
Villa Kalisha has two stunning guest bedroom suites, each suitable for one couple. Both bedrooms have dramatic floor-to-ceiling windows, allowing the sunlight to flood in and offering fantastic views out across the jungle to the gorge below, yet also ensuring complete privacy. Romantic, draped, king sized beds and quality soft furnishings make both bedrooms the perfect place to relax with your partner or family. The suites are both very large with more than enough space for extra beds if required.
The upstairs bathroom has probably some of the best views in the villa, and as you enter a dramatic open-air vista opens up in all three directions of the jungle and gorge below. Completed in wood and stone of the highest quality, the bathroom also features a remarkable brass bath that provides the perfect place to relax and enjoy the view. The downstairs bathroom, also has great views out across the jungle and gorge, but this time features a fantastic genuine teak bath to relax and enjoy while you watch the fish in the indoor fish pond next to you.
The Upstairs Living/TV Room
The living room is comfortably furnished with two great sofas, that also make very comfortable single or together a double bed for extra guests. The lounge is fully equipped with satellite television, DVD player and CD player and stereo. There is also a wide collection of DVDs and books, and CDs. If you prefer to relax outside, the living room opens up to a wide balcony with a further sofa that enjoys fantastic views over the pool to the valley and jungle beyond.
The Kitchen & Dining Room
Downstairs there is a completely fitted European standard guest kitchen, complete with fridge, microwave and cooker and all cooking utensils that you might need if you chose to cook for yourself (although there is also a separate staff kitchen as well). The kitchen opens up to the pool, where there is a second small lounge area, and also a magnificent dining table made from the trunk of an ancient tree.
The Pool & Sundeck
Step outside to find a green stone infinity pool where you can sit and enjoy the amazing views or alternatively lie back on the sun loungers on the sun-deck that seems to hang over the valley below. Up above the pool a Bale (Balinese Gazebo) commands a fantastic position, perfect for relaxing but it also provides a dramatic location if you are looking for the perfect spot for your wedding ceremony.
Villa Kalisha has all that you need for a long or short term stay, including unlimited free wi-fi internet access; satellite television; DVD player and DVD collection; music system and fully equipped guest kitchen. Other services such as laundry can also be easily arranged.
