A long wooden ten-seater dining table stretches across the centre of the living room. On the right, sofas are spread out in front of a flat-screen television for congregating. An open-plan contemporary kitchen takes up the left corner of the room, complete with a breakfast bar and four bar stools. Floor-to-ceiling windows and sliding glass doors allow the outdoors in.
With three infinity pools, the seven-bedroom villa is all about outdoor living. Sunken bar stools at one end of the main lap pool are strategically placed to allow you to soak in the sea views as you sip on refreshing beverages. On the left, a wooden patio with cushioned sofas spills out from the kitchen, perfect for occasions when you want to cook something and enjoy it with your group outdoors. On the right of the pool, six sun loungers allow sunbathing and a lawned terrace is ideal for kicking a ball around. Enjoy barbecues on the patio with a separate barbecue corner. Hidden away in an alcove, a wonderful patio with hammocks cradles the rightmost corner of the villa, for when you want to hide away and cocoon yourself in silence.
The seven-bedroom bespoke villa is the crowning glory of Selong Selo. It consists of a five-bedroom main residence and two adjoining self-contained one-bedroom studios. The villa can be rented in its seven-bedroom entirety or as a five bedroom home, with the two studios being rented out separately.
Master Bedroom 1
The master bedroom 1 is located at entry level, a large space with a screened off ensuite bathroom and a private patio to enjoy the gorgeous views. A romantic four-poster bed takes centre stage here, with separate sofa seating in front of the flat-screen television. The ensuite bathroom has a glass-ceiling to allow natural light to flood in, a rain shower as well as a standing-bathtub on a wooden deck.
Master Bedroom 2

On the right, sliding glass doors lead to a wooden deck with hammocks, the ultimate in relaxation. The ensuite bathroom has twin stone sinks and a rain shower.

A delight for large groups traveling with children, the children’s room is at the entry level too and has six fabulous bunk beds, one of which can be converted into a study table.

An ensuite bathroom has provision for three simultaneous rain showers, for when the little tots don’t mind a group shower.
Studio units 6 and 7
Two self-contained studio units are located just off the main residence, one level up along the hillside. The units are identical and perfect for guests without children who prefer a little oasis of calm. Each unit has a double bed that can be converted into twins and a daybed overlooking a private pool.
