Villa Voyage is an imposing double-height pavilion oriented along the beachfront to make the most of the magnificent sea vistas – 26 metres of bi-fold and sliding doors open onto a spacious ironwood deck with free-form infinity pool, beyond which turquoise-tipped breakers claim the fine white sand. The open-plan living area takes up the lion’s share of the pavilion. At one end is the dining area, bar and guests’ kitchen and, beyond, the chef’s kitchen; at the opposite end is the master bedroom suite and a second bedroom suite. Stairs lead to the mezzanine level where a galleried walkway overlooking the sitting area below leads to the two mezzanine ocean suites at either end.
A separate pavilion set in the garden within the villa’s walled compound houses the fifth bedroom suite, and a third discreetly placed building by the villa’s entrance is used as staff quarters.
Villa Voyage – Nusa Lembongan 5 bedroom beachfront villaElite 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.
