A peaceful stay in the heart of Seminyak...
Tucked away between hip places in the heart of Seminyak, The Kayana makes the perfect choice to experience the vibrant vibe of the area within the midst of a humble resort. From the outside, the resort may look simple yet surprises await on the inside. In every step of the way when I entered this property, I cherished the serene atmosphere that is 180-degree different from the surrounding neighborhood.
Be it for a family holiday or a romantic getaway, The Kayana offers the tranquility that everyone needs. The resort welcomes guests with its natural tropical aisle adorned with Frangipani trees. And as I walked into my villa which is located at the corner of the pathway, the room successfully made me forget that I was actually in the middle of the busy Seminyak.
Breathing in the fresh air, I let myself sink into the peaceful lush garden surrounded by privacy that I have been longing for. The Kayana only provides 24 villas – and I personally think the small number is the reason why this place is so exclusive and exceptional.
Each villa perfectly combines traditional and modern designs, dominated by wood elements with high ceilings in the bedroom that is typical for traditional Joglo houses. The Kayana offers three types of rooms – they have 12 units of one-bedroom Deluxe Plunge Pool Villas, 11 units of one-bedroom Pool Villas and a Two-Bedroom Villa.
I stayed at one of the Pool Villas that easily made me feel like I had my own holiday home. Designed with luxurious standards including a private swimming pool, the Pool Villa is made comfortable with a 200-square-meter bedroom and an outdoor dining area by the poolside, which I immediately turned into a relaxing nook. But for those who are spending a holiday with the family, the Two-Bedroom Villa is the best option. Standing on a 400-squa-remeter space, the two-bedroom villa has a complete facilities with separate rooms, a large private pool, and spacious garden.
Once inside the villa, I found myself so relaxed I didn’t want to go anywhere. I mean, why should I when The Kayana provides everything within the room? Their staff is also at the ready to meet guests’ needs every time. And the fact that each villa features a dedicated access to call the 24-hour butler service makes me even more at ease. From enjoying an afternoon tea on the dining table to indulging in a floating breakfast on the pool – everything is possible and can be done in private.
Although staying in is so comfortable, I decided to visit The Dauh Restaurant when it was time for dinner. Located by the resort’s main swimming pool, the restaurant serves a range of traditional and international delights, all is presented amidst an open-air setting. Surrounded by a lush garden, The Dauh Restaurant offers a dining experience not to forget as guests can indulge in their dishes under the night sky.
