Located in downtown Seminyak, The Orchard House is an elegant four-bedroom character home set
amongst stunning tropical gardens. Unique in appearance and style, this delightful residence can best be
described as “British India meets Out of Africa”, lovingly created by the villa’s owners, Luli and Charles
Orchard, renowned in Bali for high-end furniture design.

Having been the family home for the past 12 years, the villa overflows with exotic furnishings and
artefacts. Hundreds of paintings, sketches, photographs and prints by famous artists adorn the walls,
while antique rugs, ceramic vases and vintage fabrics inject a unique sense of style.
Sympathetic to its surrounds, traditional Balinese materials have been used in harmony with the
environment and tropical climate. High vaulted ceilings topped with ironwood shingle and alang-alang
thatched roofs, and hard wood floors keep the villa cool, while French-style windows beautifully capture
the natural light.
The expansive garden with its mature trees, large lawn, 13-metre swimming pool (with optional pool
fence) and poolside balé adds to the villa’s beauty to create a sense of space in an urban neighbourhood
bustling with activity. Just 100 metres from the villa’s door guests find themselves on Jalan Seminyak,
home to some of the island’s best restaurants, spas, boutiques, bars and galleries.
However for those who’d rather stay in and enjoy the quiet, The Orchard House offers a multitude of
living spaces and comes with a team of dedicated staff, including a highly-skilled in-house chef. The villa
is particularly child friendly too, with an additional bedroom that sleeps four children and an abundance
of facilities to keep even the most energetic youngsters entertained.

Location
The Orchard House is tucked down a small laneway off Bali’s bustling tourist strip, Jalan Seminyak. This
lengthy street is lined with restaurants, bars, boutiques, galleries and spas making The Orchard House a
food lover and shopper’s dream location. The villa is also just around the corner from Jalan Laksmana, or
‘Eat St’, where you will find every type of cuisine possible – Italian, Japanese, Moroccan, Indian and
traditional Indonesian warungs. What makes The Orchard House so unique is that while it is in the middle of Bali’s most sought-after neighbourhood, it is also remarkably quiet and peaceful.

Overview
At the end of a small laneway a traditional Balinese door opens to reveal a magical urban oasis. A stone
path meanders through tropical gardens consisting of lush lawns, tall trees, flowering plants and a 13-
metre swimming pool, to the main two-storey house with its ironwood shingle and alang-alang thatched
roof.
The front doors open to an inviting foyer which sets the scene for the whole villa. Beautiful artwork
adorns the walls and polished wooden floors gleam in the sunlight that beams through the open Frenchstyle
shuttered windows.
A staircase off the foyer leads up to the master bedroom and children’s bedroom, where another set of
steps climbs to a rooftop library with delightful views across the garden and surrounding neighbourhood.
Downstairs rests the media room, two guest bedrooms, kitchen, breakfast nook, open-plan living and
dining room, and large sitting room called the Big room. A cute one-bedroom garden bungalow lies
across the lawn directly opposite the main house.

Bedrooms

Master bedroom
The spacious air-conditioned master bedroom with its white wooden ceiling, hardwood
floors, ensuite bathroom, king-size bed and library sitting area is the perfect place for
those who wish to unwind and relax while taking in the garden views. The room is also
equipped with a ceiling fan and small satellite TV and DVD player. The air-conditioned
ensuite bathroom consists of two areas: a dressing room with wooden floors and antique
carpets underfoot, plentiful cupboard space and two white basins set in a grey marble
vanity; and a light and airy Palimanan bathing area with rain shower and tub looking out
across the vivid green foliage. This room is ideal for parents who like to have their
children close at hand as the children’s room is accessed directly off the master suite’s
dressing area.

Children’s room
The children’s bedroom is divided by a wooden doorway into two separate air-conditioned
spaces. The first area is fitted out with a white bunk bed, bright pink
furnishings, shelves, cupboards and play space, while an annex features two single beds
with white and turquoise furnishings (suitable for children and teenagers only).

Guest rooms
Accessed via the media room or garden veranda, the connecting downstairs guest
rooms, which are cooled by both air conditioning and ceiling fans, feature green and
white hand-painted cement tiles from one of Bali’s most famous artistic villages,
Sidemen. The larger room is furnished with a four-poster king-size bed draped in
mosquito netting, a floral patterned sofa, watercolours and a scattering of antiques.
Curtained doors lead to the twin guest room which has its own garden access through bifold
doors. Both rooms share a rustic ensuite bathroom featuring a terrazzo bathtub and
handheld shower, small settee, twin basins set in a beige marble vanity and a large
whitewashed teak cupboard for storing clothes. As well as opening onto the garden, the
bathroom has a clear glass ceiling above the tub to give the effect of bathing under the
stars. These two guest rooms are ideally set up for a family with young children.

Garden bungalow
Across the garden from the two guest rooms stands the air-conditioned garden bungalow
– discreetly located for those craving extra privacy. Featuring a high vaulted ceiling and
alang-alang thatched roof, terracotta-tiled patio with reading chairs, a king-size fourposter
bed with mosquito netting, sofa adorned with green and white striped cushions
and an antique writing desk, this little house oozes character. Traditional Balinese doors
lead to an ensuite with a terrazzo tub and handheld shower and twin basins set in a teak
vanity. The bathroom also opens onto the garden – the perfect place for taking a
relaxing bath.

Living/Dining and the Kitchen
Indoor living

Guests at The Orchard House are spoilt for choice when it comes to indoor living spaces. The villa
has been decorated by the owners, with each piece of furniture designed to create a comfortable
and relaxing atmosphere with old world charm. The artwork and antiques have been collected
from worldwide travels including Morocco, Turkey, Africa, South-east Asia and India. Most of the
paintings are by famous Balinese artists with the odd Picasso or John Lennon print and Burmese
masterpiece scattered in between.

Living and dining room
Guests are greeted at The Orchard House in the open-plan living and dining room, where they
can recline on soft, comfortable sofas with a welcome drink while admiring the detail that has
gone into making this home so special. The dining area, with its circular table for six, curves out
towards the garden with bi-fold doors and windows opening onto the tropical surrounds. A
writing desk with desktop computer and printer/scanner sits under a bay window.

Big room
A step down from the living and dining room is the fan-cooled Big room which has been
fashioned on the traditional Balinese wantilan (meeting hall) with vaulted ceilings under a
thatched roof. Rich oriental carpets add colour to the dark hardwood floors and pastel walls,
while vases of silk English roses add to the country cottage feel.
Floor-to-ceiling bookcases line one wall, while a myriad of paintings, drawings, photographs,
prints and artefacts line the other. Plump sofas with soft cushions surround a huge coffee table
laden with books (some published by the owner), and an antique cabinet hides a satellite TV with
DVD player and Bose iPod dock for entertainment. A round dining table for four is just the spot
for high tea. French doors open out onto the gardens and a patio with a large outdoor dining
table (seats eight) shaded by umbrellas.

Kitchen
Adjoining the living and dining room is the villa’s fully equipped galley-style kitchen fitted out with
black granite worktops, teak cupboards, an impressive china cabinet, a great selection of
cookbooks and all the latest appliances, including a wine fridge. Guests can sip their tea in the
breakfast nook decked out with pink and white check cushions.

Media room/children’s playroom
The air-conditioned media room can be accessed from the foyer, kitchen and garden. A pastel
blue chaise sofa compliments the hand-painted white cement tiles, turquoise cupboards with
stained-glass windows and pink-striped curtains. Here guests can enjoy a movie on the large flatscreen
satellite TV with DVD player. Equipped with Xbox, Nintendo Wii, Karaoke machine, a
doll’s house, numerous toys – even a dining table with vinyl tablecloth for messy eaters – this
room doubles admirably as a children’s playroom.

Rooftop library
The air-conditioned library located on the top floor of the main house makes an ideal retreat.
Furnished with two leather armchairs, a wooden desk and a large daybed, this room offers the
best views in the house through a wall of windows. A small balcony furnished with a wicker chair
is strategically placed to catch the sun’s rays.

Outdoor living
One of the highlights of The Orchard House is its stunning garden with swaying coconut palms,
towering trees and exotic blooms. A rare luxury for a Seminyak villa, this beautiful home boasts
large lawns big enough for a game of soccer, badminton or croquet. While the children are kept
well entertained with the tree house, swings and the 13-metre swimming pool which has a
special shallow section, adults can lie back on the sun loungers and daybed or take refuge in the
poolside balé. Near the pool is an undercover dining area (seats ten) which makes an idyllic
setting for a barbecue on a balmy night. By the main entrance lies a lily pond with an elephant
water feature that creates a soothing background ambiance.

Dining
The villa’s private chef, Putu, is at your service to prepare daily breakfast, lunch and dinner. The
villa offers an extensive suggestion menu 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. However Chef Putu is more than happy to whip up a favourite dish or encourage you to
choose a recipe from one of the villa’s cookbooks. He is well trained in European cooking and a
stay isn’t complete without trying his cheese soufflé, steak with white bean sauce and lemon
brulée tart.
Meals can be tailored to accommodate special dietary requirements and to make the most of the
kitchen, and give staff time to shop, it is recommended that you plan meals with the chef or villa
manager the evening before.

Groceries and beverages are charged at cost price. Guests will be requested to provide grocery
money in advance and the staff will do the shopping for you and keep the receipts for your
reference.

How meals and Drinks work-The System
Food and beverage items are charged based on grocery cost system. Guests will need to
provide some money in advance and the staff will do the shopping for you and keep the
receipts for your reference.
Should you have a request for a dish not on the menu, or a special dietary requirement,
please feel free to ask the chef, who will strive to comply with all of your wishes.
While the villa has large food preparation areas, it is not a restaurant and cannot support
each individual guest ordering different foods for same dining periods. If you have a large
group it is advisable that the group dines on the same dish or that you order several
dishes to be shared. Please allow at least one day’s notice, and feel free to discuss any
requirements with the chef or villa manager.

Food and Beverage Charges
Food items and beverage are charged at cost price with receipts available whenever you like. Please ask your manager if you wish to check your daily expense

For Children
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. There is no
doubting that children are going to enjoy The Orchard House as much as their parents: with a
large garden to run around in, a 13-metre swimming pool, tree house, Nintendo Wii, Xbox and an
abundance of toys, facilities here are outstanding. The team of friendly staff at The Orchard
House make children feel as welcome as adults too, and 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 meals for fussy eaters or babies to be prepared with ease,
staff will happily to 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. The chef can customize all meals to
suit children’s taste buds. Pancakes by the pool for breakfast? Fish fingers after a game of
football? No problem.

Neither do you need to worry about packing all that cumbersome kids’ equipment for your stay.
There is a good stock of children’s items already at the villa (see below), but should you need
anything else, equipment can be hired on your behalf (click here to see list of available hire
items).
And when the excitement of exploring the villa starts to wear off, check out our Things to do
page; there’s plenty in the area to keep kids of all ages amused throughout the holiday.

Spa
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 villa by fully trained therapists from a
reputable local spa (extra charges will apply).
