Villa Baladewa One Bali Individual Villa Compound - Umalas - Price range: US$ 200 - US$ 400
The villa was designed by renowned local architect Popo Danes and the architectural influences are essentially contemporary tropical. Villa Baladewa is well appointed and offers all the comforts you would expect at home and as such has universal appeal.
Comfort is king and this is reflected in the amenities at Villa Baladewa, which include a large double sized poolside pavilion with twin king sized mattresses covered in tasteful blue Sunbrella fabric and overhead fan to ensure a flow of air. The pavilion has its own cool box and there is an electrical socket, which is handy for plugging in your iPod, working on your laptop or watching a movie.
Literally a step away from the sanctuary of the pavilion is a refreshing 11m x 3.5m swimming pool which is lined with light-green stone tiles imported from the neighbouring island of Java. The filtration system is chlorine based with a cascading overflow to the garden level.
The split level design of the pool and garden with its coconut palms, bamboo and tropical flora is an interesting concept. In the garden are two sun beds and there are plenty of garden tables and chairs available throughout the villa for you to use.
Living Areas and Bedrooms
Villa Baladewa has two spacious lounges, one open and one enclosed with full air-conditioning and audio/visual facilities including satellite television, DVD player and Bose stereo system.

Upstairs adjacent to the master suite are large double glass paneled doors that open into the upper lounge, which is home to the entertainment system.
