Villa Umah Daun – Umalas 5 bedroom luxury villa, Bali Villa Umah Daun – Umalas 5 bedroom luxury villa, Bali
Umah Daun is an exceptional villa – a super-sized five-bedroom home skillfully sculpted from interlinking pavilions arranged in an arc around the large swimming pool, kids pool, jacuzzi and gorgeous gardens.

Conceived by noted Balinese architect, Komang Suardika of Jeghier Architect, the villa’s generous living areas appear to extend beyond their glass doors and across the shallow pond that flows around the contours of the pavilion, emulating the form of the surrounding rice terraces. An uncompromisingly modern design is softened with graciously curved walls and well considered use of natural materials such as andesite rock for statement walls, polished Merbau-wood and marble floors, and bowed Bengkirai-wood roofs which bring to mind the leaves after which the villa is named.

Umah Daun has huge family appeal. Youngsters will gravitate to the beanbag-strewn playroom, kids wading pool and tree house, while kids of all ages will appreciate the villa’s media room, games room, 15-metre swimming pool and jacuzzi. There are myriad toys for grown-ups too, among them a Sonos multi-zone sound system and a climate-controlled wine room.

Working discreetly behind the scenes, the villa’s nine-strong staff includes an accomplished chef who can whip up tasty meals from an extensive suggestion menu. The massive dining table will be the focus for many fabulous feasts, whilst the poolside bale is perfect for less formal meals. And while there’s an abundance of social living space, it’s countered with quiet corners – library, bedroom balconies and a rooftop terrace – for a break from the crowd.

While Umah Daun is a world in itself, guests are only a short taxi ride away from Bali’s famed sunset beaches and Seminyak’s uber-hip boutiques, spas, restaurants and bars.

Families

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.

Umah Daun is a great villa for families with young children.  There’s plenty of bedroom flexibility, in that three rooms can be easily configured to either king or twin beds, and daybeds in two bedrooms can sleep extra guests. Kids have their own beanbag-filled playroom with 40-inch satellite-channel TV, DVD player, PS3 and a cupboard brimming with board games. They also get to hang out in a two-level tree house with kids-size furniture. And although the games room is intended more for adults, it might be hard to keep kids away from the table football! Last but not least, a huge section of the swimming pool is designed for kids, with a consistent 60cm depth.

The team of friendly staff at Umah Daun will make children feel as welcome as adults.  Having these willing helpers on hand gives guests plenty of flexibility and freedom to do their own exploring beyond the villa grounds (full-time babysitting incurs a small extra cost).

Although the equipped kitchen allows you to prepare meals for fussy eaters or babies with ease, staff will happily do this for you – just talk through your requirements and meal schedules with the villa manager or chef and they will take care of the rest. Grilled chicken and salmon fresh from the market are among the favourites on the kids’ menu, and the chef can customise most meals to suit children’s taste buds.

Don’t worry about packing all that cumbersome kids’ equipment for your stay.  Just let us know what you need, and anything we don’t have in-house, we can hire on your behalf (click here to see list of available hire items).
