ORLANDO, FL (December 3, 2014) — Karma Royal Group has launched the final release at Karma Kandara a limited new collection of private Woods Bagot-designed luxury villa residences and apartments available for sale, nestled amidst the exclusive “Billionaire’s Row” haven adorning the dramatic coastline of Bukit peninsula in Bali. Sprawling across nearly six hectares of a lushly landscaped hillside, the fully integrated, contemporary tropical resort-style residential enclave will benefit from world-class facilities and full concierge services available from the adjacent five-star adjacent Karma Kandara resort and seasoned professional management by Karma Royal Group.
“The final release at Karma Kandara is poised to become Bali’s most coveted prestigious residential address. We are beyond thrilled to be harnessing the creative genius of internationally renowned architectural firm, Woods Bagot of Australia, in crafting a curated world of elegant contemporary simplicity and sustainable tropical style. Artfully designed to inspire the most discerning global traveller who are relentless in their pursuit of perfect destinations, the final release at Karma Kandara provides a rare opportunity for a privileged few to experience a much sought-after lifestyle in their own luxurious Karma resort sanctuary, “ said John Spence, Chairman and CEO of Karma Royal Group.
Mr. Spence continued: “With a capital gain projection that nurtures any financial portfolio, the final release at Karma Kandara is optimized to ensure value appreciation complemented with attractive returns for any potential owner, whether he or she is in residence or travelling to other parts of the world, as day-to-day and long-term management can be left in the capable and experienced hands of Karma Royal Group’s internationally trained asset management team. Living here may be the stuff from which fantasies are made but the final release at Karma Kandara also makes absolute sense from a real estate investment perspective.”
Designed to be completely harmonious with the Bukit peninsula’s naturally rugged hillside setting, the residences at the final release at Karma Kandara meander around a beautifully landscaped, communal shared swimming pool that terraces down the sloping terrain. Residents can rest easy with round-the-clock security and enjoy the on-site conveniences of an expansive and welcoming reception lounge with knowledgeable concierge staff on hand to assist, an engaging kids’ club, a state-of-the-art gymnasium, a stylish open-air yoga pavilion, a fully appointed conference centre, as well as basking in casual-chic dining venues, including the final release at Karma Kandara’s signature restaurant, bar and pool club. Bestowing a naturally lush backdrop to the residential enclave is the richness and diversity of Balinese flora and foliage whilst a natural seasonal stream flanks the community’s periphery and over the horizon lies glittering views of the scenic Indian Ocean, granting residents with ample breathing space and opportunity for simply soaking up the beauty and serenity of local surroundings.
Ranging in size from 42 to more than 330 square metres, the final release at Karma Kandara offers sophisticatedly casual and breezy contemporary living with an exclusive collection of 15 design-savvy villas and 23 low-rise, low-density apartments, all stylishly blending indoor and outdoor living with spacious outdoor balconies or garden patios, and for all villas, private 34 square metre swimming pools with built-in interconnecting hot tubs.
Apartments range from studio, one-bedroom and two-bedrooms and are organized into three low-rise blocks connected by shared circulation consisting of staircases and elevators. The top three levels of the apartment complex offer beautiful ocean views, but those on the southern end of the west-facing block claim what are arguably the best views over the rest of Karma Kandara towards the water. A delightful contemporary tropical ambience infuses the charming apartment units where natural stone and wooden walls meet timber floors and sleek modern furnishings. Full length glass doors with plantation-style wooden shutters act as protection against harsh tropical sunlight whilst opening to reveal bijou balconies overlooking the communal swimming pool or sunny grass gardens fringed with tropical greenery. A well-equipped open plan kitchen comes with all units whilst expansive open-plan living and dining offer ample space for relaxing and lounging in one and two bedroom apartments. Apartments range in size from 42 to 140 square metres of living space.
All villas face centrally towards the communal pool with each villa’s privacy enhanced by way of a large garden wall, so that guests, immediately upon entering, encounter a private serene tropical garden surrounding a private pool and deck enclosed by a garden wall. In a modern Balinese approach, guests cross through a gate and over a low pool of water before entering a villa. Entry is into the central bay of a tripartite plan delineated by large walls clad in local stone. Immediately upon entry the guest is awarded with a view through the open bay to the cloistered pool at the rear of the villa. Finished with a stylish contemporary edge, the spacious central bay houses an open-plan kitchen and dining area that opens onto the deck. The generously proportioned private master suite occupies the whole of the left bay, punctuated by the master bathroom. To the right is a guest bedroom and an elegantly furnished living room that opens onto the deck featuring a day bay, which mirrors as a space for resting but within the garden. The garden also includes a hot tub that flows into a private swimming pool and an outdoor shower. Upstairs is a third bedroom offering similar dimensions to the master suite, with a private sundeck surrounded on two sides by the roofs of the villa which frame a view to the resort pool terracing down the site. The two-storey three bedroom villas offer a total of 220 square metres of internal living space.
The rugged coastline of Bali’s southernmost tip, the Bukit peninsula, is dotted with magnificent limestone cliffs towering over spectacular Indian Ocean waves crashing on windswept, white sand beaches and dramatic breaks long ago discovered by surfers. A sought-after destination for surfing, swimming, sailing and scuba-diving, Bukit’s craggy slopes is now home to the world’s most exclusive resorts and sleek luxury villas.
Residences in the final release at Karma Kandara start at USD 275,000, including tax. For more information on the final release at Karma Kandara, call Sonia Mackay-Coghill +61 412 703 225 or Manish Antal +62 856 3949 598 or email: [email protected]
