Outdoor and Pool Area
Running perpendicular to the house, the 19-metre swimming pool at Villa Shambala is a breathtaking sight as it is nestled in-between luscious, tropical gardens. Fringed by palm trees on both sides, the pool is great for relaxation as you can really swim laps, release some pent-up tension, and even float on your back as you lie gazing at the skies overhead. The pool deck is fully furnished with a circular rattan seating, a glorious bale with daybeds and drapes to keep out to the sun, if you’re planning to doze off. There are beanbags on the garden as well, perfect for lounging while the kids play around the trees!
The open-sided living area directly faces the swimming pool extending out to meet the pool deck. Accessible through glass doors that can remain open as per your wishes, the beautifully-decorated living room features many Balinese sculptures, artefacts and antiques that bring the room to life. In the centre, there are comfortable and well-cushioned sofas facing each other, making for a nice, little spot that you can relax in. The traditional, Balinese ceiling soars high-up in the sky with a stunning chandelier hanging from the centre. A media room is furnished with a flat-screen TV, DVD player and plush couches for a perfect movie night!
