About Villa Galante
Villa Galante is a vacation compound that’s comprised of about three pavilions that exemplify traditional Balinese architecture especially with the distinct Joglo style roofs as the predominant design element. Interiors are carefully appointed with, mostly, tasteful and ornate period wood furnishings complemented by classic European pieces, as well as generously decorated with large, contemporary depictions of Asian and Oriental subjects. Amenities, although of hotel and resort quality, are consistent with the air of old world nostalgia throughout the entire villa. Truly, a holiday at Villa Galante not only accords you sheer pleasure and recreation. It also gives you a deeper look into the gentility of ancestral and countryside Balinese living.
Outdoor And Pool Area
Much like a gleaming gem on the property’s expansive garden of well-kept lawn is the 18-meter swimming pool. Give in to its inviting, azure waters and wade unmindfully or splash about playfully. From the water, you can lazily lounge on cushioned and wooden, as well as on boat-shaped pool beds partially covered by large umbrellas, or completely shaded by trees on the poolside wooden deck.
The Living Area
From the swimming pool and the garden, a flight of steps lead you up to the airy, semi-open, spacious and high-ceilinged main pavilion. At its center – from the covered terrace extending indoors – is the living area with its large sofas, its long, cushioned, wooden couches and weathered benches, as well as its circular day bed. Here, you can all converge for amusing and animated sharing and storytelling. On this pavilion’s covered terraces are two dining areas – one, with a round, weathered wood dinner table that seats four, and the other, a long wooden table for eight. At one end of the swimming pool under the trees is an open-air dining area with a wooden picnic table. At any of these dining areas, you can get a taste of authentic Balinese specialties – as well as international favorites – masterfully prepared by the resident chef at the fully-equipped, modern kitchen behind the long, wooden dinner table. The main pavilion also has a study with its antique, wooden table and two classic leather chairs – definitely a stimulating room where you can spend some me time.
The villa has six bedrooms. Four bedrooms are in the villa’s two-storey pavilion. While two other bedrooms are in stand-alone pavilions out on the garden. All bedrooms have draped, king-sized beds and dedicated bathrooms with large bathtubs and rain showers.
Staff And Services
On duty to deliver the villa’s daily services is a staff that’s comprised of a personal guest assistant, a chef, a pool attendant, a laundry helper as well as housekeepers, gardeners and security personnel. Upon your request, a babysitter, a driver and a spa therapist may be called in. Their services come with a separate charge however. Bike, scooter and car rentals are also available.
