Villa Adasa’s fully equipped kitchen is staffed by a superb private chef – a jewel in the villas crown. The villa’s priced menu offers everything from snacks to lunches to five-course dinners and seafood barbecues. Afternoon canapés and G&T’s by the pool are a specialty.

Being in Bali, this is a good opportunity to try favourite Indonesian dishes such as Nasi Goreng (fried rice), Mie Goreng (fried noodles), or Soto Ayam (spicy chicken soup), as well as Nasi Campur – the everyday Balinese meal that can be customised to suit the occasion. Nasi Campur is comprised of rice and a selection of vegetables, meat or fish and other accompaniments that might include egg, tofu, and the fried soybean cakes known as ‘tempe’. Another ‘must try’ is Rendang Daging – a famous Indonesian delicacy created from succulent chunks of beef stewed in coconut cream and spices.

Guests are welcome to join the chef on shopping trips to the local markets – including the Jimbaran seafood market – and are encouraged to speak with him with regards meal options, specific dietary requirements and any special requests they may have during their stay.

Villa Adasa – Seminyak 3 bedroom luxury villa, Bali Elite Havens

From the cast bronze ‘mudra’ hands adorning the handsome entrance door to the colourful batik cushions piled up on the poolside bale, Villa Adasa delivers a mega-dose of style, right down to the smallest detail. Alang-alang (thatch) and ironwood shingle roofs create spacious interiors with vaulted ceilings supported on Palimanan stone walls soaring above floors of terrazzo and teakwood. Bringing the Bali-style influence bang up to date, Turkish rugs contrast with black and white prints from the 30s, fossilised stone stools stand by side-tables made from traditional offering plates, and the Sonos music system and Paras stone fountains harmonise their melodies.

Gather in the huge living pavilion for a convivial meal or seafood barbecue prepared by the accomplished villa chef; retire to the double bale for a massage after a dip in the 14-metre green-stone-tiled pool; retreat to the upper deck for some sunbathing or yoga; enjoy sunset cocktails on the second level master bedroom terrace – Villa Adasa offers a choice of places for socialising as well as quiet time, and the glamorous master bedroom and two guest suites are each sanctuaries in themselves

As appealing as Villa Adasa’s style is its sensational location; the villa is securely set in the exclusive Laksmana enclave moments away from the Indian Ocean and the wide sandy beaches of Bali’s south-west coast. La Lucciola, Potato Head, Ku De Ta and other iconic culinary and cocktail landmarks are a short walk away.
