This beautiful view is located on the peaceful island of Lombok, Indonesia. It is the ultimate in luxury. Have a look at a lavish three-bedroom vacation home with “funky” architecture, a stand-alone two-bedroom guest house, tennis court and three swimming pools. This is Villa Sapi which is designed by David Lombardi. The website says it as “tropical living and barefoot luxury at its very best; a site where guests can truly escape.” Mind you, you’re not escaping from fun: the Lombok Golf Kosaido Country Club, Hotels Tugu and The Oberoi, and Gilli Islands — famous for excellent diving — are merely a short distance away. Canadian architect David Lombardi’s idea for this villa is “function over form,” which makes for a surprise or two: a traditionally styled, grass-roofed building houses the major kitchen — while the home theater is unabashedly futuristic.
The villa’s color scheme is largely black, red and lime green, with unique artwork — among it, the wall that greets you when you arrive, advising you in big block letters to “Stop Making Sense.” In truth, you’ll almost immediately discard care as you step onto the timbered path to the entrance, making your way past the torches, the bamboo wall, the cascades of water. The major villa, with an open floor plan, includes living and dining areas, three of the five bedrooms, the study, and the home theater; the resort also consists of the services of a full team of staff to give you with everything from excellent food to pampering spa services. Use up your days snorkeling, hiking around waterfalls, mountain trekking, cycling, or even take cooking classes — the choices are large. With accommodations more than roomy enough for a whole family, Villa Sapi and its perfect seaside setting are ingredients for a vacation you’ll always bear in mind.
