Villa Kubu, Bali Seminyak
Villa Kubu offers guests the best of both worlds, combining individually-designed, spacious and elegant private sanctuaries situated in lush garden settings with instant access to sophisticated Seminyak and all that this popular area of south-western Bali has to offer. It is little wonder that Villa Kubu draws travellers from all corners of the globe.
Boho chic restaurants, boutiques, galleries and Seminyak’s famous nightlife are just some of the attractions within walking distance of Villa Kubu. The expansive Seminyak Beach with its spectacular year-round sunsets is a stroll away, and to cap it all, the villas are within easy reach of Bali’s international airport.
Villa Kubu’s luxury private residences, which overflow with traditional features and luxurious modern amenities, are now available in two sought-after locations in Seminyak, each serviced by the same highly experienced staff and overseen by the same caring management. The original location offers 17 separate villas (one, two and three-bedrooms in size) while Lataliana Villas, the newest additions to the Villa Kubu family, comprise a two-bedroom and a five-bedroom villa each standing independently and serenely within delightful tropical gardens.
The owner has lovingly built each of Kubu and Lataliana’s 19 individual villas, one by one, over a 12-year period. Don’t expect cookie cutter plunge pools and mass produced furnishings and fittings. Each villa has its own personality as unique as the Australian owner, and all come with their own private swimming pools, hand picked decorations from across the archipelago and framed in enchanted tropical gardens.
With its legendary Three Flag Service system, Villa Kubu has a long-established reputation for privacy – one of today’s greatest luxuries.
A yellow flag at your villa’s front entrance signifies to the staff that you are in residence; green means ‘Please service immediately, champagne and nibbles are required’, while red means ‘Do not disturb’. The system is followed with the utmost respect by the staff whose friendly smiling service is so synonymous with Bali.
Award winning villa dining
Villa gardensThe owner of Villa Kubu has spent years studying the tropical vegetation of the island and the villa’s gardens reflect her love of Balinese botanicals. With a varied and beautiful assortment of tropical flowers and foliage, the gardens are as diverse as the villas themselves; some featuring lotus ponds, waterfalls and rock gardens complete with Balinese statuary. Pathways wind their way under canopies of palm trees, flanked by the coloured foliage of plants that will tolerate the shade. Urns, statues and other garden ornaments add a decorative element to the spaces and there are bursts of colour throughout the property courtesy of the bougainvillea and ginger flowers growing in abundance. Villa Kubu’s gardens are an amalgamation of a variety of elements that are unique to the island, combining to create what is now simply referred to as Balinese style. The running water, the traditional balé pavilion, the statues and lush foliage further enhanced at night by ambient lighting, all contribute to the success of these gardens and are a defining factor in Villa Kubu’s global popularity.
Located just minutes from Seminyak beach, and close to the popular Gado-Gado restaurant, the latest of Kubu’s offerings, the Lataliana Villas opened in August of 2011.
Built on a large tree-lined plot, Lataliana is a small complex featuring a private entrance off a quiet tree-lined street, two luxury villas (a 2 bedroom and a 5 bedroom), extensive back of house facilities servicing the villas, and round the clock security. The added advantage of a separate 1 bedroom suite provides a 6, 7 and 8 bedroom option, affording extended families or groups the perfect solution.
The comforts of a private home, one of the most stylish villa complexes in Bali, and a range of choices that allows families and individuals to tailor their own holidays, all add to the allure of Lataliana. Warm, generous hospitality, the ultimate private getaway, a modern take on beautiful Balinese architecture and landscaping are what makes this property a great one.
The two villas can be enjoyed together or exclusively, families, friends or couples are assured the ultimate in privacy and service. Come enjoy the famous Kubu service in its newest villa offerings!
