Avalon II’s traditional Balinese entrance opens onto a delightfully private walled garden. Here, an open-sided living and dining pavilion with kitchenette provides easy access to the sun terrace and pool, set on manicured lawns surrounded by tropical blooms. To one side is the sleeping pavilion where two bedrooms – each with its own ensuite bathroom and dressing area – open onto a shared veranda.
The living pavilion is formed from the four-pillar heart of a historic teakwood joglo from Java, and its ornately carved ceiling is a treat to behold. Under a statement chandelier, an all-weather rattan table accords semi-alfresco dining for six. Meals can be prepared by the estate chef, or whipped up in the well-equipped kitchenette. Comfortable chairs invite afternoon siestas – though poolside sun loungers may be preferred by those seeking a holiday tan.
The high vaulted ceiling of the sleeping pavilion gives both bedrooms – one with a king-sized bed, the other a queen – a theatrical sense of space, heightened by handsome furnishings and arresting Balinese paintings. Granite basins and walk-in rain showers add glamour to both ensuites and there’s generous wardrobe space for the nattiest holiday packer.
