Amore is two-bedroom villa ensconced within the walls of a tropical compound to provide a welcome escape from the hedonistic pace of city living. It is a retreat that defines contemporary European design with its pure white décor creating a blank canvas for sporadic splays of vibrant colour.
Amore is accessed via an unassuming gateway that opens wide to reveal a modern interpretation of a decorative Balinese stone inlaid wall, which is locally believed to be a source of protection to deter spirits. The villa beyond is a two-storey structure with an abundance of full length doors and windows that seamlessly bring elements of the green garden inside.
An ultra sophisticated living cum dining space is located on the ground floor and also incorporates a spotless kitchen alcove. This comes in handy for guests who prefer to maintain their own dietary regime or to stock up on snacks and cold beverages for poolside consumption. Unusual light fixtures, multiple ceramic vases, and aesthetic artworks bring a personal touch into this predominantly white environment. During the day this entire area is bathed in natural lighting that filters through a glass skylight. But as evening descends it also captures the inky darkness of the star studded night sky.
Sanctuary for the Senses
The master bedroom is a sanctuary for the senses and follows the same bold décor of blue accents upon a white backdrop. A comfortable bed sits slightly below a unique glass panel structure that is lit at nightfall for a soft glowing effect. Ample wardrobe space is discreetly tucked out of the way and a luxury en-suite bathroom features a separate tub and outdoor shower recess.
An inconspicuous stairwell leads up to the second storey where there is a cozy niche beneath an elevated ceiling for optimal air circulation. A built-in bench seat is covered in colored scatter cushions and at the opposite end is a low opium table rested upon a cowhide rug and a quirky light fixture.
The second bedroom is a tranquil space that evokes nights of restful slumber. A four poster bed with mosquito netting and crisp white linen lends itself to moments of intimacy, while the modern en-suite bathroom ensures that every bathing ritual is one of spa styled indulgence.
Outside a garden of blossoming flora and native greenery provides an obvious contrast to the minimalist lines of the villa. The pool is edged in creamy white stone pavers with a Grecian styled water feature sprouting a continuous flow into the shallow end. It is an area to lie back, relax and feel the penetrating warmth of the sun.
