Villa Talia Vashti is a Laid-Back fully-serviced private villa situated right on the southern shore of the tropical island paradise of Bali, close to the resort of Candidasa. The villa comfortably accommodates 6 adults (plus up to two small children) in three great bedrooms, each with its own ensuite bathroom, balcony lounge area and views of the ocean.
The villa is located directly on the ocean with spectacular views across the sea to Nusa Penida and Nusa Lembongan, and on a clear day even to Lombok. A few minutes walk away is Mendira beach, and Villa Talia Vashti and the the beach are sheltered by a coral reef that lies only 100m offshore, which not only provides shelter from the big waves that roll in from the open ocean, but also means that snorkeling and swimming conditions in front of the villa are ideal for children and adults alike.
Although Villa Talia Vashti lies in a secluded location at the end of a private road, it is less than a few minutes by car from the restaurants and shops of Candidasa, which has most facilities that you will need for your stay, or alternatively the laid back bars of Mendira Beach are just a few minutes walk through the traditional Balinese village of Mendira that is close to Villa Talia Vashti.
Once through the main gates, you enter Villa Talia Vashti to find a relaxing water garden. Koi carp and other tropical fish gently swim beneath the stepping stones that make up the path that leads to the Living Room and the two guest suites, with the only sound the gentle splashing of a fountain to disturb you.
Each guest bedroom is simply but really nicely appointed and furnished, with a walk-in-wardrobe and a fully furnished en-suite bathroom with corner bath and stone shower that is open to air. One bedroom suite has a king size double, and the other has two large twin beds, that can be put together to make a double if required We can also add an extra bed in either bedroom if required.
The Living Room
The Living Room is focal point of Villa Talia Vashti. The windows to the front are able to be folded back enabling the living room to be opened up entirely to the Terrace and the sea beyond. The modern yet comfortable lounge area is equipped with Satellite TV with international channels and internet connectivity. There is a full stereo system with AUX cable to connect your phone, and USB to play your own music. We also have unlimited free internet access provided by fibre optic cable, making it the fastest and best available in Bali.
The Main Bedroom
Occupying the whole of the upstairs floor, the main bedroom has complete privacy yet with floor-to-ceiling windows it also offers amazing views out across the ocean and over the beach. With windows on both sides of the room the light floods in, and if you tire of the air-conditioning, simply open the windows and let the sea breeze gently waft you to sleep instead.
The master suite actually comprises three separate rooms, with a separate dressing room (which can also be used as a an extra room for children) and a remarkable en-suite bathroom, as well as the main sleeping area complete with king size bed.
The main bedroom ensuite bathroom is finished in a combination of wood and local stone, and boasts a stand alone shower and a giant stone bath that is easily big enough to take two persons. The bath has also been raised so that you can actually bathe in Laid-Back while at the same time enjoying fabulous views out of the window to the sea and the islands beyond.
Step out through the Living Room doors, and you are greeted with a fresh-water infinity pool with views out to the sea. Alternatively adults can relax in the small shallow pool, and ask for one of the villa staff to pour you a drink from the adjacent pool bar, or smaller kids can splash about more safely in just 40cms of water.
There is also a bale (Balinese gazebo) where you can relax in the shade or take in some sun on the sun loungers.
The Beach & Reef
We have a raised beach right in front of Villa Talia Vashti that is great for kids to play on (although there is a drop into the sea so little one's should be watched, although the staff are happy to do this if you ask them). Mendira beach though is just a short walk away, and has a lovely flat white sandy beach that is great for kids and adults alike, where you can hire boats to go fishing, or just relax. There are beautiful coral reefs right in front of Villa Talia Vashti - really some of the best in Bali -and we provide snorkeling equipment and a map to help you to explore. The fringing coral reef is just 100m offshore, which protects the inner reef from currents and waves and outside of the reef it is possible to see dolphins swimming by in the early morning.
