Villa Jovina blends the old with the new, consisting of antique, individual wooden authentic joglos, unique to Indonesian cultural heritage and re-modelled into the 21st century using western design ideas and facilities. The architectural concept reveals comfort and simplicity, while the interiors unobtrusively introduce natural materials, fabrics and colours. There is nothing ostentatious about this open space; the chic simplicity ensures that nothing detracts from the incredible 360-degree views.
The spacious main joglo (220m2) has been extended from its original size in order to provide a huge living area with TV Room, kitchen, dining room and custom-made teak office. This tropical room is fully open and yet well sheltered with wonderful views from all sides. Ocean breezes keep this welcoming space delightfully fresh and cool. Sliding teak doors enable the TV Room to be darkened and flipping “wood and glass” doors on one side of the dining room are designed to be opened for semi-alfresco dining at the 3m. long custom-made table which can seat up to 14.
Adjoining the dining room is the feature kitchen, also with wood and glass doors, which is fully equipped with everything the cook might need to prepare delicious meals throughout your stay.
The bedroom accommodation, in individual joglos, is all beautifully finished with comfortable beds, dressing areas, office area and bathrooms characterised by a blend of iron wood and natural stones decorated with artefacts from all over Indonesia. Each open-air bathroom is bordered by natural stone walls for privacy and fitted with double stone washbasins, ample mirrors, WC, a rainshower and a stone bathtub. All the bedrooms have magnificent views of the coastline, sea and gardens.
We would recommend you spend a couple of days on arrival in Seminyak and then be driven up to Lovina (approximately 3 hours’ drive). The house is super-organised with loads of ideas for excursions, from dolphin watching (which apparently is spectacular) to quiet beaches where the sea is so clear you don’t even need snorkelling kit…….
