Villa Sapi – Lombok 5 bedroom beachfront villa for rent Elite Havens
Canadian architect David Lombardi’s concept of ‘Function over Form’ leaves Villa Sapi’s guests with a sense of discovery and surprise at every turn, from the traditionally styled, grass-roofed building that houses the main kitchen to a futuristic home theatre.

Furnishings carry a signature colour theme of black, red and lime green, while the walls are adorned with flair – bamboo, water cascades and conceptual artwork.  The first clue to the quirky nature of the artwork is a white sculpture in the coconut grove garden which, in huge black letters, suggests that we should ‘Stop Making Sense’.

The view over the 2,500sqm estate from the villa’s open-sided living and dining room, bedrooms and bathrooms is unrivalled; here guests can look forward to a vista that is ever-changing with the moods of the sea, sky, neighbouring islands, distant mountains, forests and colourful fishing boats.  At night, after a magnificent sunset, the scene becomes even more magical as the moon’s reflection twinkles on the water, presenting a picture of tranquillity and unforgettable beauty.

A full team of staff is on hand at Villa Sapi to look after every guest’s need with superb cuisine and service.  The villa’s manager, chef and head butler were all previously employed by The Oberoi Hotel Group and have been trained to the highest level.  A wide range of activities is available to guests at Villa Sapi, including tennis on the villa’s private court, golf, snorkelling, diving, waterfall hikes and mountain trekking, cycling, day trips to the nearby Gili Islands, cookery classes and more.

There is a sweet story behind the villa’s name.  The huge coconut grove on which the property stands used to be grazing land for cows, the most treasured possessions of Lombok farmers, symbolising status, wealth and happiness.  The owners decided that these graceful beasts should be rightfully honoured:  Sapi means cow in the Indonesian language.
