This contemporary property embraces symmetry and exudes style, fusing some of the traditional Balinese architectural elements: like the pavilions, and the four sloped roofs, with the modern concept of space and featuring crisp white walls, white terrazzo floors, iron wood shingle roofs and decks, and high quality furnishings.
The main access to the house, leads to the Entrance Hall through two huge ironwood sliding doors, that when opened, allow to see a handmade stone waterfall and the symbol of the house: an antique wooden carved back-illuminated Matahari, which in Bahasa Indonesia means “sun”, coming from Mata = eye and Hari = day, “the eye of the day”. The hall is flanked by two ponds with two enormous `made in situ´ white stone Buddha heads, acting as waterfalls. When bordering this entrance waterfall is when all the dimensions and beauty of Villa Matahari are uncovered to greet its guests. The living room pavilion is open on three sides serving not only as the main living area but also as the distributor to the different pavilions composing the property. The living area itself is the central focus. Aligned with the swimming pool and overlooking the garden, it is cooled by three ceiling fans. Presiding the space, there is a sitting Buddha which is back-lighted during the night reflecting its image in the swimming pool water giving and extraordinary sense of peace and tranquility. Two large fish ponds with their own waterfalls separate the Dining pavilion and the TV & Tea pavilion and are used also as an ingenious cross ventilation system to cool the ambience when the passing breeze evaporates the water.
The open plan design incorporates a TV lounge, accessed by wide stepping stones over an ornamental pond with golden fish inside and is furnished with a daybed, a rattan center table, several wooden stools, a massage armchair, and an antique Balinese fighting cock bird cage. The wall is decorated with a collection of Balinese hats, and a ceiling fan crowns the area to cool the ambience if needed. This TV lounge is equipped with a flat LCD TV with International satellite channels and a DVD player. A guest toilet is also conveniently located in the TV Lounge.
A huge sliding ironwood gate gives access to the property and the parking area which is paved by concrete blocks covered with grass and capable to accommodate several cars and motorcycles. A security post is conveniently placed next to the main gate so the security officers assist the guests when arriving or leaving the villa. The security officers will be in the security post at night while the staff is resting to control the access and assist guests if needed.
