Villa Shamira

Villa Shamira

Bali, Canggu ~ 5 Bedrooms ~ 4 Bathrooms ~ Sleeps 7 to 10


Shamira’s four main bedrooms are stylish and understated. All are air-conditioned and furnished with king-size beds canopied with soft white cotton mosquito netting over crisp white linens and piles of comfy pillows.

Master Bedroom

The master bedroom is reminiscent of a romantic boudoir in a French chateau– incorporating both bedroom and sitting areas. It features teak floors, a walk-in wardrobe and a wrought-iron four-poster bed, flanked by matching baby cot, also draped with mosquito netting. The large, flat-screen TV (for DVDs only) can be viewed from the bed or from the white suede sofas and armchair. The indulgent ensuite bathroom includes a vanity area and raised free-standing bathtub. Doors from here lead out onto a private patio area with rattan furniture, prettily edged with bougainvillea and potted plants – a lovely spot for breakfast.

Bedrooms Two and Three

Perhaps more ‘English country cottage’ than ‘French Chateau’ in ambiance, bedrooms two and three, like the master, lead off from a cosy, purple-hued first floor landing. Bedroom two is the larger of the pair. Both rooms share a small bathroom with shower.

Bedroom Four – The Garden room

The appropriately named garden room is surrounded by leafy foliage. Glass-encased, and with distressed wood floors, sunlit bedroom four has a contemporary Asian feel; however the ensuite bathroom with walk-in rain shower does include a trademark chandelier! Doors at the far side lead out to the pool deck, while doors at the front open onto a stone patio with a table and four chairs.

Extra Bedroom – The Lumbung room

Villa Shamira offers an extra bedroom, designed to resemble a Balinese rice barn, or lumbung, with wooden floors, a high ceiling and narrow doors, plus a miniscule but divine balcony overlooking the pool, furnished with a vintage rocking chair and armchair. This room does not have an ensuite bathroom but guests can use the glorious, tropical bathroom adjacent to the living and dining area. Crafted entirely from Palimanan stone, this semi-open bathroom boasts an indulgent, sunken stone bathtub and expansive, open-air tropical rain shower.

Living, Dining, Kitchen and TV rooms

A contemporary tropical Asian style pervades at the heart of Villa Shamira where the expansive, opensided living and dining area, fringed with foliage and cooled by natural breezes and ceiling fans, provides a variety of relaxed, informal living spaces. Throughout, there’s an eclectic mix of family photos, brimming bookcases, vases of tropical blooms, and antique Indonesian furniture and artifacts. Facing the pool, a marble-floored dining area with a low sloping white timber roof above a long wooden table for ten, affords a boathouse effect. Flanking either side is a pretty blue and white cushioned daybed and a traditional-style seating area on a raised platform, providing two sublime spots for predinner drinks. Adjacent, there’s a smaller dining area for more intimate soirees.

Two further dining tables and an antique daybed stacked with white cushions furnish the centre of the living and dining area while, at the far end, is the expansive TV room. Functional in design, this airconditioned and entirely glass-encased room houses the villa’s only TV – a 40-inch flat-screen satellite TV with DVD player – which can be enjoyed from the comfort of white suede couches. A CD stereo system, iPod dock and multiple speakers provided are perfect accompaniments for get-togethers and pool parties. Also off the living and dining area is a modern corner kitchen, fully-fitted with white painted wood cabinets, which is compact, yet well-equipped.


Garden, Pool and Bale



The pretty, natural stone, 6 x 12m swimming pool dominates the garden to the rear of the villa; its submerged ledge just made for sunset drinks. A generous stone pool deck is furnished with five rattan sun-loungers. To the right, four woven rattan pod chairs and a large table are stunningly illuminated at night by a spherical lantern resembling a golden moon. At the pool’s opposite end stands a thatched balé stacked with comfy cushions – a gloriously peaceful spot for reading and siestas – while along the sides of the villa, yet more outdoor sitting areas can be found. The gardens feature lawns dissected with stone steps and edged by lush, tropical flora, such as banana plants and tall palm fronds, encircled by a combination of stone walls and bamboo fencing.
