About Villa Tao
Villa Tao is a three-level vacation residence that represents the harmonious merging of traditional Javanese architecture – with its 200-year old, Gladek structures – and contemporary tropical chic. Earthy wood and dark stone interiors are appointed with mostly complementary and masterfully crafted wood furnishings along with weathered, antique and ornate as well as modern, lavish pieces. Amenities are uncompromisingly top-of-the-line – for each and every guest’s utmost satisfaction. Erected on a hillside elevated from Balian Beach, Villa Tao, truly, holds out to you a highland holiday with an unmistakably exotic yet stylish feel.
Outdoor And Pool Area
Along the property’s rim is the 14-meter infinity pool. Somersault into its welcoming, glassy waters which creates the illusion of ebbing with the tide. For some sun, you can lounge on cushioned, woodcraft pool beds or on a circular, day bed on poolside wooden decks.
The Living Space
On the villa’s semi-open, spacious and airy second level is the living area with two sitting layouts – one of which is a sunken portion with a wrap-around couch – where you can all mingle and mix. Adjacent to the other sitting layout is the dining area. On its long, dark wood table that seats 10, you can all savor authentic Balinese specialties – as well as foreign fare – meticulously put together by the onsite chef at the villa’s modern kitchen. At the villa’s media room, you can all catch shows you’ve been following closely. Or, go on a marathon of your can’t-get-enough-of movies. Up on the villa’s roof top is a covered deck where you can throw cocktail parties in time for the sunset’s magic hour.
In the villa’s wings are four air-conditioned bedrooms – two bedrooms in every wing. Two of these bedrooms are in fully-restored Gladek houses which form the upper floor of the villa’s both wings. These bedrooms have king-sized beds – one of which is draped – as well as dedicated bathrooms with scenic, fitted, stone bathtubs and indoor and outdoor rain showers. These bedrooms open out to furnished balconies with picture-perfect ocean views. Two more bedrooms are on the ground levels of the villa’s wings. One of these bedrooms has a double bed, and the other has four single beds. Both bedrooms have dedicated bathrooms with bathtubs as well as indoor and outdoor rain showers. These bedrooms also open out to furnished terraces with picturesque views of the sea.
Staff And Services
On duty to deliver the villa’s everyday services is a staff that’s comprised of a pool attendant, a gardener as well as housekeepers and security personnel. In addition to the chef, a personal guest assistant, a babysitter, a driver, a laundry helper and a spa therapist may be called in upon your request. However, their services come with a separate charge. Bike, scooter, car and boat rentals are also available.
Around Villa Tao
Villa Tao is located within the vicinity of Balian Beach where you can spend the day, if you’re a surfer, catching the waters’ multiple reef breaks, or, just combing the pristine, squid-ink, black coastline. Eventually, you will arrive at the Soka Bat Temple. On another day tour, catch a local mekepung or bull race, then explore the Lumbung Berkat Dragon Fruit Gardens.
