Welcome to
The Maharaj

Location, location, location – and then some. Down a quiet lane, but conveniently located in the centre of the fashionable Petitenget district of Seminyak on Bali’s south-west coast, this gorgeous four-bedroom villa offers an oasis to escape to and rejuvenate.

Perfect for family living, The Maharaj welcomes with informality, caring staff and calming influences, providing a comfortable hideaway with mature gardens and inviting 12m pool, sun-drenched rooms and tranquil sitting areas.

All this, within walking distance of Petitenget’s crashing waves and Bali’s most stylish wining and dining venues, nightspots and shops.

The layout

Sturdy and modern, The Maharaj essentially comprises two separate buildings capped with traditional ironwood roof, hugging a gorgeous free-form pool within lush tropical gardens.

In the main building, the single-storey living–dining area is open-sided and open-plan; off here is a self-contained kitchen and TV room, plus covered garden courtyard. This area seamlessly adjoins a double-storey accommodation wing containing the master bedroom downstairs and two interconnecting bedrooms above. Accessed by a stone pathway across immaculate lawns stands a detached single-storey annex; its broad wooden pillars, traditional-style roof and timbered floors displaying a more typical Balinese look. This cottage annex contains two ensuite bedrooms with small timbered terrace, facing the shaded 12 x 4m pool, alongside which rests a balé (gazebo) dedicated to spa treatments.

Air-conditioning is provided in all rooms, except the open-sided living–dining area, kept cool with ceiling fans. Villa rooms feature traditional-style high ceilings made of split rattan, floors of marble or quality timber and tasteful wood furniture, predominately teak, which strikingly contrasts with white-washed walls.

The rooms

The villa contains four ensuite bedrooms plus one nanny or child’s room. Each of the bedrooms features glass and wood patio doors, floor-to-ceiling windows shielded by contemporary-style wood blinds and marble floors. In keeping with the homely ambiance, bedrooms are simply but tastefully furnished with nut-brown wood furniture and the odd splash of modern art; décor and gadgetry are kept to a minimum. The beds in all four rooms are draped with elaborate white mosquito net canopies. Air-conditioning (camouflaged behind wood grills) and ceiling fans keep spaces cool.

Master Bedroom

The villa’s largest bedroom is located on the ground floor of the double-storey accommodation wing. Three glass patio doors provide direct pool access and approximately half of the room is encased in floor-to-ceiling windows. The master room is furnished with a king-size double bed, ottoman and built-in wooden cupboards, while a walk-through wardrobe leads to the indoor bathroom. This stylish room features his n’ hers galvanized aluminum wash basins on a wooden counter, a stand-alone ceramic bathtub and solid stone pieces used as mini-tables. Glass doors lead to a rejuvenating outdoor rain shower with timbered deck.

Guest Bedroom Suite

A wooden staircase from the ground-floor leads to the first-floor bedroom and interconnecting nanny or child’s room. Both rooms share an extended timbered deck area. Overlooking the pool and providing two comfy armchairs, this deck makes a pleasant spot to relax, especially at sunset.

The upstairs guest bedroom has three patio doors; two of which allow private access to a veranda. Again, this room features a king-size bed, ottoman and walk-through wardrobe leading to an indoor–outdoor bathroom similar in style to that of the master bedroom but without a tub.

Small and functional, the nanny or child’s room provides a single bed. This room interconnects with the guest bedroom and shares its bathroom.

Cottage Bedrooms

On the opposite side of the pool a sweet cottage annex contains two additional ensuite bedrooms, ideally suited to a family. The first features a queen-size bed, small desk and wardrobe. Glass doors lead through to an open-sided bathroom with single galvanized aluminum wash basin and walk-in rain shower.

The slightly larger second room features a queen-size bed and walk-in wardrobe. Glass doors lead through to a generous, open-sided bathroom, edged with high walls, tropical plants and bamboo blinds – part covered with split-rattan ceiling. This features two raised ceramic sinks, a lengthy marble table and an open-air rain shower on a stone deck.

Between the two bedrooms, and facing the pool, a cosy timbered terrace area with two small armchairs provides a quiet spot for downtime.
