Passing through the entrance corridor and into the villa grounds, guests encounter the beautiful open dining pavilion. This spacious, open-air dining space measures six meters by nine meters and is protected from sun and rain by a broad roof thatched with woven rattan paneling on the interior with the exterior roofed with kiln-fired tiles in the traditional Balinese style.
Panoramic views of the beautiful 25-meter pool and manicured grounds surround the Open Dining Pavilion, the sounds of birds and the calls of tree frogs and crickets the only sounds to be heard while dining here. The main dining table is carved from rugged suar wood and stretches a full four meters – with seating suitable for up to twelve guests.
Stout columns hewn from antique ironwood form the supports for the pavilion roof – the beautiful ceiling of bangkirai wood remains exposed to reveal its natural elegance. A carefully curated selection of antique and custom-made furniture accents the breezy ambiance of the pavilion, which has a floor finished with charcoal-grey andesite slabs. A wall of solid stone divides the open living space from the nearby kitchen.
