Dining

Food and beverage charges

The chef and staff are happy to arrange the purchase of all provisions (whether for preparation by the chef or at a guest’s request), including wines, spirits, beer and soft drinks. We recommend that the chef is provided with a ‘float’ to start with. Receipts will be kept for reference daily or at the end of the stay, and a service charge of 30% applied to cover admin and transport.

Menus

Good food – and being effortlessly and well catered for – is key to a relaxing and rewarding holiday experience. Villa Voyage guests can enjoy delicious home-cooked food whenever – and wherever – they want. The chef can prepare everything from snacks and picnics to gourmet dinner parties for up to 24 people. His expertise covers international and Indonesian cuisine, Italian being a favourite, and his creative presentation is on a par with the finest restaurants in Bali. Guests may glance through a suggestion menu to whet their appetite: ginger and corn soup, three-colour pepper salad, chicken parmagiano and Grand Marnier soufflé, for example. Or Tom Kha Gai (spicy coconut and chicken soup) spring rolls with chilli sauce, grilled snapper with sambal and chips, and banana flambé.

Alternatively, the villa has a special arrangement with the neighbouring Beach Club at Sandy Bay and Café Bali on Mushroom Bay to provide home deliveries from their menus on request. Alcoholic drinks can also be delivered from the Beach Club bar.

The system

We recommend that guests meet with the chef at the start of their stay to chat about menus and preferred food. The chef is happy to put together menus, try out dishes, or even to cook alongside guests who are so inclined. It is also necessary to agree meals in advance (ideally 48 hours) to allow adequate time for provisioning, because nearly all the ingredients are specially ordered from the mainland and brought in by boat every morning. This also applies if the choice is to self-cater.

Villa Voyage – Nusa Lembongan 5 bedroom beachfront villa Elite Havens

Welcome to Villa Voyage – a spectacular five-bedroom villa according absolute beachfront luxury in laid-back Nusa Lembongan, off Bali’s eastern coast.

Voyage implies a journey, an adventure, an odyssey. It suggests the era of grand sojourns, of cruise ships and safaris, and is the perfect name for a villa whose owner loves to travel the globe: Farah Khan, whose fashion creations are favoured by many Hollywood celebrities, has styled Voyage as a barefoot luxury abode, while maintaining the old world charm of coconut-wood floors, bamboo, thatched alang-alang roof and driftwood lamps in a tropical island setting metres from the white-sand beach.

There’s a sense of space and freedom in the contemporary interiors, with comfortable sofas and tables crafted from reclaimed limed teakwood set before walls of glass framing the sea view beyond the deck. Accenting the neutral colour palette of creams and greys are couture designer touches and decorative flourishes supporting the glamour travel theme – vintage Louis Vuitton monogram steamer trunks; Prada, Tods, Aigner, and various other designer luggage, and lavishly illustrated coffee table books on exotic destinations, culture, art and architecture. Amplifying the luxury safari look is canvas and leather furniture from the Esprite Nomade collection, including their renowned bespoke tents that float over Voyage’s supremely comfortable beds.

Beyond the villa walls, Voyage keeps true to its luxury adventure theme. On an island that has few cars, the villa has its own safari-style open-sided buggy for land transfers, and also available to villa guests for island expeditions is the Voyage jukung, a traditional outrigger fishing boat that has been transformed into a designer pleasure craft complete with Emilio Pucci print cushions and gourmet picnic baskets. Of course, as in the days of grand travel where one was accompanied by a retinue of helpers, guests can expect to be cosseted by the villa’s charming staff.

As a designer beach retreat, Villa Voyage is incomparable. It is particularly suited to couples, groups of friends and extended families, and will be appreciated by lovers of design aesthetics and effortless chic.
