Villa Toba’s tranquil setting, at the end of a leafy avenue, creates a peaceful hide away right in the heart of Seminyak; a district famed for its long sandy beach, world-class restaurants, trendy bars and designer boutiques.
Named after the largest lake in Southeast Asia, Donau Toba, which nestles in an immense volcanic crater in North Sumatra, this villa boasts the biggest pool in the Lakshmi Villa enclave. Built to a contemporary Balinese design, the villa is an ode to tropical living, blending dark and natural timber with creamy stone, sprays of orchids and a smattering of local artwork. An atmospheric open-sided living pavilion overlooks the swimming pool ornately fringed by pandanus palms and frangipani trees. Two spacious air-conditioned bedrooms have delightful garden bathrooms.
Long-standing staff provide a warm welcome and a discreet professional service. The villa has a guest kitchen, with mini bar and complimentary tea and coffee, while an executive chef prepares tasty meals in the staff kitchen from an extensive a la carte menu that includes western and Asian dishes. He is also happy to accommodate any special requests – from kid’s meals to four-course feasts and pool-side barbecues.
Whether you want to stroll down to the world-class dining venues of ‘eat street,’ shop till you drop, lounge on the beach, or sip cocktails at sunset, the opportunities that come with a stay at Villa Toba are endless.
