Harmony & Flow...
We are extremely proud to present our latest villa to be completed, a modern 3 bedroom bespoke beauty that exudes style, functionality, and impeccable design and the highest quality interior finishes.

Guests enter via the upper level of Villa Capri to a grand entranceway and stairwell with a high glass ceiling, framing a spectacular view of the bay. There are 2 large and impressive bedrooms on the upper level with floor-to-ceiling windows and incredible views. Each bedroom has its own ensuite bathroom with double vanity and shower.   Both bedrooms open onto an outdoor deck with private seating areas - the main master bedroom seating area is an expansive tiled deck with lounge furniture and copper fire pit that is a perfect location for evening sunset drinks or intimate private dining.

On the lower floor is a beautiful open plan gourmet kitchen, dining and living area that opens out onto a large infinity pool. A third king sized bedroom is positioned on the lower floor, complete with ensuite bathroom and beautiful views.

By far one of the most impressive features of this villa is it's large covered outdoor dining pavillion area adjacent to the pool, with BBQ and amazing sunken lounge pit that overlooks the view. This villa is the ultimate place for entertaining with a group of friends or multiple families, or for people looking for something truly luxurious and impressive. The entire villa has been designed with good Feng Shui in mind and this translates to a wonderful sense of space, energy and flow throughout the villa.

The Rise of Glamping

Global travel company Cox & Kings, the world’s longest established travel company, recently published it's Travel Style 2018 study. The study looks at the popular destinations and trends that will shape travel behaviour in the years ahead.

According to the study, travel in 2018 is going to be about immersive experiences as opposed to specific destinations. The report predicts that in 2018 travelers will seek experiences that are defined by their personality, interests and style, most of which have been evolving over the years but will find a definite pattern in 2018.

High among the top 8 experiences in the study that will gain momentum in 2018 is the increasingly popular Glamping (short for 'Glamorous Camping') experience.  Cox & Kings Group CEO, Peter Kerkar, explains the rationale behind this increasing trend:

"The growing need for experiential travel has made way for Glamping or Glamorous camping lately. Travellers want to be a part of immersive experiences without compromising on the luxuries, and glamping is the perfect marriage of luxurious accommodation and unforgettable in-destination experiences. With glamping taking various forms – think Canvas tents at TUTC in the mountains of Ladakh, Safari lodges in the thick forests of Masaai Mara in Africa, igloo pods in Swiss Alpes or floating cabins on the coast of Cambodia, Glamping, clearly is one of the most popular travel segments the coming year."

Update on the Kemah launch 

Unsurprisingly, with the recent launch of our sea view Kemah Villas offering guaranteed 8% net yields, we have seen a strong take up of the initial vilas from those seeking a smart investment and an affordable yet convenient holiday destination. 

The luxury, safari style villas with pools are a solid structure (concrete platform)  and can be fully enclosed with air conditioning or opened to allow the breeze flow through the villa. It provides all the comforts of a luxury villa but with greater versatility. The tent structure has a 10 year warranty and when the time comes will be replaced free of charge plus there are no ongoing management fees.
The safari style villas are becoming increasingly popular throughout SE Asia primarily because of the warm climate, stunning views and affordability to a wider market. Starting from only $149,000

Footprints Foundation Update...
Progress on establishing community and environmental programs has continued for the Footprints Foundation. Further meetings have been held with key stakeholders this month and extensive research is being undertaken to ensure relevance of program direction.

Importantly, we have met with the Head of the Selong Belank Village to ensure that programs align with development priorities, and we have spoken with specialists in rural community development to discuss effective initiatives.

As we move through this scoping process and tackle registration of organisations for fundraising and implementation, please note that progress may seem slow and trust that we are making consistent advances towards giving back to Selong Belanak.
