Villa Lulito – Private 4 Bedroom Seminyak Villa for Rent, BaliVilla Lulito – Private 4 Bedroom Seminyak Villa for Rent, Bali
Few villas in fascinating Galle Fort can match the generous proportions of this historic and luxurious abode. Formerly the residence of the Sri Lankan Ambassador to Pakistan, Iraq and Bangladesh, Ambassador’s House has lavishly hosted many important guests in its illustrious past and its epic proportions still make it a fabulous place for entertaining.
These days the villa enshrines relaxation. Pluck a book or magazine from a cabinet or table top and sink into the deep sofas of the living room. Enjoy a wonderful seafood lunch in the palm-shaded courtyard cooked by your in-house chef, and after a well-deserved nap take a dip in the inviting pool. As the end of the day beckons and the temperature cools, take a leisurely stroll amongst the fort’s ancient cobbled streets, culminating at the grass-tufted ramparts to watch the sun sink into the sea.
By evening, the villa’s soft lighting creates the perfect ambiance for poolside cocktails. At dinnertime, our chef will dazzle you with yet another delicious spread selected from a menu of Western and Sri Lankan dishes: whether a formal feast or a relaxed family get together, every meal at Ambassador’s House is guaranteed to be special. Our friendly staff will happily do their utmost to help youngsters make the most of their stay, and our sociable TV snug, furnished with a big comfortable sofa, is a firm favourite with kids and adults alike.
Our staff will provide plenty of inspiration for those who wish to explore, and we encourage you to seek their advice. Beyond the quaint narrow streets, fashionable boutiques and charming cafes of the UNESCO-World-Heritage-listed fort, the wider region of Galle boasts many excellent restaurants, eclectic shops and fascinating places to visit. What’s more, within a ten-minute drive you can be relaxing on one of Sri Lanka’s idyllic beaches, beside a warm, turquoise sea.

As you approach Villa Lulito via the sophisticated shopping and dining enclave of Oberoi, rubbing shoulders with iconic Bali landmarks including the super-cool Ku De Ta and the elegant hotel after which the area is named, it is obvious that the villa can lay claim to an exclusive and coveted location. And once beyond the threshold of this luxurious villa oasis, Australian interior designer Stuart Membery’s tribute to Ralph Lauren’s polished Caribbean style is also pleasingly obvious: everything from the beautifully hand-rendered walls along the drive and the majestic custom-made Aegean blue doorway, to the soft-cushioned rattan chairs, white shutters and maritime motifs coupled with exposed timber beam ceilings and hurricane lamps, evokes refined empire. Think Montego Bay meets Bali.
Families, couples or friends will adore soaking up the charm of this 2011-built residence, which has four generous ensuite bedrooms, including a delightful kids room with four bunks and the option to add another king-size bed (extra charge), and plenty of living space. Two bedrooms flank the villa’s double entranceway and face the pool, while above them two more suites open onto a long balcony overlooking the azure water, which is lit at night by neon blue lights creating a mesmerising aquatic art piece. Relax into one of several comfortable living rooms that meander through the pavilions and include a quiet alcove with plush sofas for watching TV, perusing the library, listening to music or enjoying an aperitif. Landscape gardener Bruce Johnson created a kaleidoscope of tropical gardens that fringe the pavilions.
A dedicated staff team provides five-star service and expertly prepare gourmet delights to be served in one of three dining areas from casual in the gleaming kitchen to a timelessly set table for eight in the formal dining room. Everything is at your fingertips, including massage beds that are just waiting for a therapist to be called to deliver expert treatments.
Step outside and you are at the centre of Bali’s best shopping district, with hip cafes, fabulous nightclubs and fine restaurants to chose from. One of the island’s most important Hindu temples and glorious Seminyak beach are just a stroll away. Breathe in the sea air and get your holiday rocking from this perfectly placed villa.
