Guests of Casa Brio enjoy the expertise of their own very accomplished chef who brings a culinary expertise plus a spirit of adventure to his dishes.
The villa’s suggestion menu of Indonesian, Asian and Western dishes is extensive, covering everything from poolside snacks, salads and light lunches to gourmet dinners and seafood barbecues – and all served home-style. Should a guest crave something off-menu, the chef will happily oblige, creating dishes according to personal taste, as well as tailoring meals to accommodate any special dietary requirements.
To give the kitchen team time to shop for the freshest ingredients, it’s a good idea to plan meals a day in advance. Staff will do the shopping and keep the receipts for reference – groceries and beverages are charged at cost price with no service mark-up, and bills are settled at the end of the vacation.
Casa Brio – 4 bedroom villa in Seminyak, BaliElite Havens
Brio is the Italian word for liveliness, vivacity, verve – the perfect name for this bright and breezy Seminyak villa that sparkles on every count. First impressions are of generosity, both in space and design. Think luxurious living spaces and glamorous bedroom suites, contemporary furnishings and designer homewares in a palette of cool grey and dusky pink. In the enormous vaulted living pavilion, uncompromisingly comfortable super-sized sofas sit on acres of marble flooring, and a solid Suarwood dining table stretches almost four metres under uber-chic pendant lighting – all facing a 21-metre swimming pool edged with an ironwood sun deck.
From 7am ‘til 11pm staff are discreetly on hand, ready to attend to your every whim, serving drinks and snacks and providing delicious meals from an enticing suggestion menu. When there’s no need to lift a finger, how will you spend your day in paradise? Perhaps start with a breakfast of perfectly poached eggs served in the poolside bale. Then cool off in the pool and recline on a sun lounger with a good book. Follow a light lunch with a siesta or in-villa massage, then an hour or so of browsing the many fashion and lifestyle boutiques just a short walk away. As the day draws to a close, sip a sunset cocktail on the rooftop terrace or stroll down to one of Bali’s iconic beach bars. Then return to a gourmet candle-lit dinner prepared by the accomplished villa chef.
Casa Brio offers Bali-style indoor-outdoor living at its best, with all the ingredients for a blissful Bali holiday: stand-out accommodation, a seven-strong staff, and a stellar (yet secluded) beach-in-five Seminyak location – perfect for multi-generation families (including less mobile or wheelchair-bound guests) as well as groups of friends.
