With so much on offer at Villa Malaathina, you may never want to leave, but if you do fancy a change of scenery, Seminyak, with its world-class restaurants, bars and boutiques, is only a short drive away, and the spectacular surf spots of Berawa and Echo Beach just a few kilometres down the road.
This stunning, contemporary villa boasts a main two-storey residence and a number of single-storey pavilions spread throughout immaculate gardens with a 25-metre swimming pool at their centre. On one side of the main residence’s upper floor is the master bedroom suite, which is connected to a second spacious suite via a rooftop walkway and ‘sunset’ terrace. Downstairs, one side of the building houses the media room, office and open-air bar, dining and living area, while on the other side, air-conditioned indoor space includes a bar, dining, lounge and kitchen.
Two interconnecting guest suites open directly onto the garden and pool and another privately faces towards the yoga room, gym and kitchen garden. The library pavilion is located at the far end of the pool, and the remaining two bedrooms lie just behind. A large poolside bale pavilion with generous lounge seating and an impressive Teppanyaki grill completes Villa Malaathina’s exceptional facilities.
The master and four of the bedroom suites have comfortable lounge or built-in sitting areas, and bedrooms 6 and 7, while smaller than the others, boast pleasant furnished outdoor terraces.
Master Suite - With stunning views over the rice paddies on one side and the swimming pool and garden on the other, Villa Malaathina’s light and spacious master bedroom is the definition of luxury, and comes complete with a king-size bed, private furnished balcony and large dressing room. A soak in the enormous bathroom’s granite tub, overlooking a rooftop garden dotted with splendid purple, pink and white bougainvillea, is an absolute must.
Bedroom 2 - Opposite the master suite lies an equally airy and light-filled guest suite. Featuring two stunning Buddha statues, this room overlooks the tropical garden and pool and also boasts a king-size bed and a dressing room. Its delightful bathroom has views over the surrounding rice paddies.
Bedroom 3 & 4 - Located alongside the swimming pool, guest suites 3 and 4 are wonderfully adaptable, as they both have twins which convert to kings. The rooms are connected by a solid teak door, which can be opened to make one big family suite. Wide glass doors open onto furnished poolside terraces.
Bedroom 5 - With its traditional pitched roof made from Kalimantan wood, this king-bedded suite is situated at the far end of the garden near the yoga studio and gym, and provides a very private getaway.
Bedrooms 6 & 7 - These two identical bedrooms each feature twin beds, which can be joined to make a king. Chinese inspired furnishings complete these charming rooms, which share a covered balcony with outdoor seating, offering guests a lovely space to relax.
The beauty of a villa this size is that there is such an abundance of space to lounge, dine, relax, socialise, exercise or simply to take some time out for yourself. Enjoy the tropical Balinese climate and relax in the open-air living, dining and bar area overlooking the swimming pool. With a stunning copper chandelier overhead, the circular dining table has seating for ten, while the living area is furnished with comfortable sofas and a chaise longue on which to read a book or magazine, or relax to your favourite music played over the Sonos sound system.
Should the air-conditioned comfort of indoor living be more to your taste, head to the lounge, with its luxurious velvet seating and strikingly backlit ‘onyx’ bar leading to a formal dining area with ten-seater table. Alternatively, the media room, with its 62-inch TV screen, DVD player, surround-sound system and expanse of comfortable sofa seating, offers guests a fabulous cinema-like experience.
At the far end of the pool lies the villa’s impressive library. With its enormous L-shaped sofa, 43-inch television, Bose sound system, collection of books and a coffee-bar area, this room offers guests the ultimate retreat.
Perhaps the villa’s most unique feature is its impressive Teppanyaki pavilion, which lies alongside the swimming pool. At one end of the pavilion is the grill itself – imported from Europe and set within a deep-green marble counter edged by ten lime-washed rattan seats – while at the other end a comfortable sunken lounge sits at eye level with the pool.
The generous 25-metre swimming pool forms the centerpiece of this magnificent villa. Cushioned double sun loungers arranged along the pool deck and shaded by capacious red umbrellas, make this the ideal spot to spend lazy days. Later, as the day draws to a close, head for the sunset terrace and – cocktail in hand – watch as the sky becomes a blaze of colour.

DINING AT VILLA MALAATHINA
The villa’s staff team includes two private chefs to prepare your breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks. One of the highlights of a stay at Villa Malaathina is the chance to witness the chefs as they expertly slice, dice and sizzle an incredible array of meats and vegetables at the grill in the Teppanyaki pavilion.
Health-conscious guests will be delighted with the holistic and low calorie menu selections that the chef has created. Many of the vegetables used in the kitchen are grown in the villa’s vegetable garden, so guests can enjoy the freshest, seasonal produce possible.
The chef is also more than happy to tailor meals to accommodate any special dietary requirements and can also cook an extensive range of delicious home-style meals featuring Asian and international dishes to cater to all tastes, with an excellent selection of vegetarian and children’s options.
Groceries and beverages are charged at cost price plus 20%. Guests will be requested to provide grocery money in advance, and the staff will do the shopping and keep the receipts for reference. To make the most of the kitchen and give staff time to shop, it is a good idea to plan meals the evening before.

The family friendly advantages of a villa holiday are many, including access to your own private facilities and the freedom to use them whenever you want. Knowing that the kids can run around happily, independently and safely, without you having to worry about other guests, is a real plus – and one that means parents are certain to have a more relaxed holiday too.
Villa Malaathina is a great villa for families with young kids. As well as plenty of garden space for letting off steam, there’s a shallow, shelved area at the top of the pool that’s ideal for young swimmers.

SPA AT VILLA MALAATHINA
Feel like a body scrub or massage? Just ask our staff to bring the spa to you! We can recommend deluxe treatments carried out in the privacy of your own villa by fully trained therapists from a reputable local spa (extra charges will apply). Here’s a sample of what’s on the menu.
Massage - Release built up tension with a traditional Balinese massage by the pool. Using a combination of gentle stretches, acupressure and aromatherapy oils to stimulate the flow of blood, oxygen and energy around your body, you will feel totally relaxed in no time.
Foot reflexology - Foot reflexology is a natural healing art based on the principle that there are reflexes in the feet which correspond to every part of the body. Through application of pressure on these reflexes tension is relieved and circulation improved leaving you feeling balanced.
Body scrub - A full body scrub will exfoliate and hydrate your skin leaving it soft and smooth. A rejuvenating scrub combines an abrasive material such as salt, coffee, rice bran or pecan hulls with essential oils to remove any impurities and make your skin glow.
Manicure/pedicure - Our hands and feet work hard for us every day but rarely get the attention they deserve. Treat them to a manicure or pedicure, which usually comes with the added bonus of a quick hand or foot massage.
