About The Malabar House
The Malabar House is a villa complex composed of three pavilions typifying Balinese period architecture and design. Interiors are appointed with mostly well-crafted, woven wood furnishings accompanied by elaborate and luxurious, as well as finely finished and contemporary pieces. Amenities are expectedly of hotel and resort standard – to guarantee sheer guest satisfaction and leisure. Erected amidst Ubud’s rice terraces, The Malabar House affords you genteel vacation living in a setting that’s truly serene and laid back.
Outdoor And Pool Area
Parallel to the façade of the villa’s two-storey pavilion is the 13-meter swimming pool. Immerse yourself in its alluring, crystal clear waters for some aimless wading. Or, push everyone in for some splashy fun and games. Up from the water, you can lie on cushioned pool beds partially covered by a large umbrella on the poolside wooden deck.
The Living Space
The villa has two living areas. One – with its large sofa and cushioned, woven wood chairs – is in the common area of the main pavilion. The other – with its large and long, cushioned, woven wood sofas – is on the semi-open, spacious, airy and high-ceilinged second floor of the two-storey pavilion. This living area has 360-degree views of the verdant, picture-perfect landscape. At any of these living areas, you can all converge for moments of family or friendly bonding. There are also two dining areas. The indoor dining area – with its timber wood table for eight – is also in the common area of the main pavilion. The alfresco dining area – with its picnic-style timber wood table – is in a separate semi-open, spacious, airy and high-ceilinged pavilion which is also for perfect for cocktail and barbecue parties. Whichever you prefer to dine at, you can all get a taste of authentic Balinese cuisine – as well as your most requested comfort food – dished out by the in-house chef from the villa’s fully-equipped, modern kitchen. The villa also has a TV lounge where you can all await the next episode of the newest hit series. Or, watch, once again, your all-time favorite classic film. The common area of the main pavilion also opens out to a furnished, covered terrace where you can spend some private time.
The villa has four bedrooms. Two master bedrooms are in the main pavilion – one bedroom in each wing. These bedrooms have canopied and draped, king-sized beds, as well as dedicated, semi-open bathrooms with rain showers. Both master bedrooms also open out to the extensive garden’s tiered, well-kept lawn and ponds. Two guest rooms are on the ground floor of the two-storey pavilion. These bedrooms have queen-sized beds, as well as dedicated bathrooms. Both guest rooms also have direct access to the garden and swimming pool.
Staff And Services
In charge of carrying out the villa’s daily services is a helpful, friendly staff headed by a manager backed by a pool attendant, a gardener as well as housekeepers and security personnel. In addition to the chef, a babysitter, a driver, a laundry helper and a spa therapist may, upon your request, be called in. Their services, however, will be charged separately. Bike, scooter and car rentals are also available.
