Contemporary architecture, artful interiors, abundant living space, glamorous bedroom suites and a stunning 21-metre pool define Casa Brio, a fully staffed four-bedroom villa that promises discerning families and groups of friends a sparkling vacation in the heart of Seminyak on Bali’s southwestern shore.
The villa certainly lives up to its name; Brio is Italian for vivacity, and it’s easy to imagine lively social gatherings in the open-sided living pavilion, animated conversation around the huge dining table, and high-spirited cocktails on the sunset roof terrace. There’s Italian brio in the contemporary design too – think clean architectural lines, light-filled living spaces, and a laid-back colour palette of cool grey with a splash of dusky pink. All this provides a canvas for those uniquely Balinese elements: open-air tropical living, a garden ablaze with orchids, frangipanis and palms, and winsome Balinese staff with warm smiles and a can-do attitude. Cappuccino from the DeLonghi coffee maker? An ice-cold Bintang on the pool deck? A massage in the cushioned poolside balé? Teatime snacks in the air-conditioned media room? A candlelit dinner created by the resident chef? A flower petal bath in the bathroom garden courtyard? Nothing is too much trouble for the highly professional strong team.
The icing on the cake is Casa Brio’s stellar Seminyak location – secluded and peaceful yet within moments of Petitenget Beach and the island’s most popular restaurants and bars.
