ABOUT VILLA AIKO
Villa Aiko embodies the ancient Chinese philosophy of yin and yang: presenting a striking interplay of light, space and airiness balanced with classic architectural lines created from teak, marble, granite and recycled ironwood.
Every space at Villa Aiko – indoors and out – makes the most of the villa’s spectacular hilltop location. No matter where you are, the view is simply breathtaking.
Awake to a symphony of birdsong and, from the comfort of your king-size bed, watch the mist rise off the mountains. Spend a lazy day lounging in the sun on your private veranda or retreat from the heat and relax in the comfort of the air-conditioned library. Then enjoy a sumptuous evening meal prepared by your private chef as you watch the lights twinkling far below on Jimbaran Bay.
Children will love Villa Aiko. They can run around on the big lawn adjacent to the main house, play hide and seek around the grounds, splash about in the pool and chill in the air-conditioned playroom, which is equipped with a doll’s house, kitchen set, games, crafts, books, and toys, to keep them entertained for hours. There’s also a fantastic selection of DVDs, plus Xbox and Wii for the young and young at heart.
With the kids occupied, adults can indulge in some well-deserved pampering: enjoy a massage in the serenity of the spa treatment room or unwind in the shaded rooftop jacuzzi, a glass of bubbles in hand. While there’s no shortage of quiet spaces for a peaceful read or some private meditation, the many lounge and dining areas, both indoors and out, spoil you for choice when it’s time to socialise. And because both floors are equipped with state-of-the-art Bose sound systems, music can set the mood wherever you are in the villa.
The grassy pool surround and the breezy upstairs deck are both great locations for sophisticated and intimate celebrations. Whatever your needs and desires, the warm, caring and professional staff at Villa Aiko will ensure that you experience an unforgettable Bali holiday.
Set over two levels, and with fabulous views from every room, this spacious, light-filled villa flanks two sides of a 15-metre infinity-edge pool bordered by a tropical, lawned garden.
The ground floor, comprising three ensuite guest bedrooms and a spacious open-plan living, dining and kitchen area, is fronted by enormous glass doors which can be closed to provide the ultimate in air-conditioned comfort or thrown open for an authentic Balinese outdoor-living experience. A small library, adjacent to the living room, offers sanctuary for guests seeking peace and quiet. The magnificent master bedroom, with its equally spectacular ensuite bathroom and ocean-view balcony, is situated on the upper floor, as is the kids’ playroom, spa room, a second indoor living room and a balmy rooftop terrace with jacuzzi.
Master bedroom - Glass sliding doors and expansive windows ensure that Villa Aiko’s enormous master bedroom is wonderfully light and airy and makes the most of the panoramic views. This tastefully furnished room, with rich, warm wood flooring, features a king-size bed and opens onto a balcony linking to a rooftop terrace furnished with canopied double sunbeds and a dining table for enjoying alfresco meals (the terrace can also be accessed from an external flight of stairs). The master ensuite is simply spectacular. This bright, sleek bathroom is fitted with twin sinks and a rain shower, while an enormous tub set below a glass roof is just made for starlit bathing.
Guest bedrooms - The three guest bedrooms on Villa Aiko’s ground floor are fitted with floor-to-ceiling glass doors, again making the most of the wonderful views. Furnished with king-size beds they feature outstanding ensuite bathrooms with rain showers and generously sized tubs. Two of the rooms have shaded, furnished balconies that face the pool, while the third is accessed from the dining and kitchen area.
All bedrooms at Villa Aiko are air-conditioned and equipped with 32-inch television screens.
Villa Aiko features two fabulous lounge rooms. The first, on the ground floor, overlooks the manicured lawn and swimming pool and is part of the open-plan living, dining and kitchen area, where an imposing, blond wood, ten-seater dining table lies next to the sleek modern kitchen.
Also on the ground floor is the library, a wonderful spot in which to relax on the stylish leather sofas and read a book.
The spacious upstairs living area is a great retreat – kick back and watch television or sink into the couch and enjoy an afternoon snooze. Young guests will enjoy their own kiddie utopia in the air-conditioned second-floor playroom, which opens onto a spectacular rooftop terrace.
Villa Aiko has a plethora of outdoor spaces to take advantage of the island’s wonderful climate. Luxuriate in the open-air jacuzzi, share a love seat on the rooftop terrace and watch the sun set over the ocean, relax on a poolside sun lounger, or dine under the stars and watch the lights of Jimbaran reflecting on the ocean below.
With a full-time cook on hand, there’s little need to leave Villa Aiko other than to surf up an appetite! Delicious home cooked cuisine will be prepared for breakfast, lunch and dinner. If you crave bacon and eggs for breakfast – or at any other time of the day – just let the cook know. The only thing you have to decide is whether you want poached, scrambled or fried?
With such an amazing range of tropical fruits available, the cook can concoct some wonderfully refreshing juices for you to sip by the pool – the lemongrass and pineapple is a must-try.
Other house specialties include the balsamic sautéed chicken and the melted chocolate pudding. And be sure to try some Asian delicacies too: the nasi goreng (fried rice) and beef rendang curry are both highly recommended.
Groceries and beverages are charged at cost price plus 20% handling fee which is subject to service charge and government tax. Guests will be requested to provide grocery money in advance and the staff will shop for you and keep receipts for your reference.
