Named after a town in Central Java – famous for its intricate woodcarvings and nineteenth Century joglo houses, Villa Kudus celebrates the legacy of its title. This exquisite five-bedroom property, just a stone’s throw from the beach at Berawa, Canggu, is a perfectly proportioned blend of the old and the new, showcasing a design concept that might be described as ‘ethnic glamour’. The architecture of Villa Kudus features trapezium-shaped joglo roofs, while air-conditioned interiors present floor-to-ceiling windows and glass doors that allow the natural light to stream in and draw attention to the ornate carvings that have become an enduring signature of Javanese history.
At Villa Kudus, you can look forward to intriguing details such as the decorative hand-carved timber panels that were once the wooden screen walls of a nobleman’s house, the beautiful, and often colourful, Asian antique furnishings, and the romantic king-size beds and elaborate headboards crafted from solid teak. Below their soaring roofs, which appear to extend upwards forever, the living pavilion and the master bedroom pavilion incorporate the four-pillared teakwood cores of century-old joglo houses, while on the exterior walls, volcanic stone bas reliefs depict scenes from the Hindu epic, The Ramayana. Yet all of this history is tweaked with contemporary comforts, twenty-first century technology, and sophisticated accessories. Expect deeply-upholstered modern furniture and cushions, cabinets and shelves filled with books and movies, toe-pleasingly soft oriental rugs, flat TV screens and DVD players in every room, sunken jacuzzi bathtubs, powerful monsoon showers, funky lamps, crystal chandeliers, and artwork that demands your attention.
The magic of Kudus is completed with a team of thoughtful staff who will cater to your every need, including the purchase of groceries (on guest account) and preparation of meals. Experience an amazing alfresco lunch or dinner, cooked from a suggestion menu by the in-house chef and served by your personal butler on a raised terrace with views across a green belt of land. Cool down in an enticing swimming pool where a small Buddha statue appears to float on the surface of the water. Enjoy late afternoon cocktails on a hidden terrace, or indulge in a massage in a poolside gazebo administered by professional therapist from a local spa.
Perfect for groups of friends and families, Villa Kudus is one of those captivating holiday homes that is very difficult to leave.
