The Orchard House is tucked down a small laneway off Bali’s bustling tourist strip, Jalan Seminyak. This lengthy street is lined with restaurants, bars, boutiques, galleries and spas making The Orchard House a food lover and shopper’s dream location. The villa is also just around the corner from Jalan Laksmana, or ‘Eat St’, where you will find every type of cuisine possible – Italian, Japanese, Moroccan, Indian and traditional Indonesian warungs. What makes The Orchard House so unique is that while it is in the middle of Bali’s most sought-after neighbourhood, it is also remarkably quiet and peaceful.
Wide, black and sandy Seminyak beach is just two kilometres from the villa and stretches north and south as far as the eye can see. It is a great beach for running, walking, building sandcastles and, of course, lazing in the sun. Sun beds with umbrellas can be hired from local vendors, but if you want a more luxurious experience head to the string of top-end funky bars such as Ku Dé Ta and Potato Head that offer five-star beachside service. At sunset, Seminyak Beach is alive with locals and holiday-makers savouring the magical moments as the sun goes down. There are plenty of surf breaks, but swimming is permitted only between the flags due to strong currents.
