Villa OMG Nusadua is named after the gasps of involuntary surprise made by those who set foot upon this villa for the first time. That awe is well deserved: first, it is huge, at 700 sq m (7,534 sq ft), and second, from the 180-degree views available from the villa, it appears as though the Indian Ocean has just been laid at one's feet, wide and endless. The 25-m long (27-ft) infinity-edge lap pool has its long sides pouring out seaward. A mere glimpse is surely an invitation to sit in the inset jacuzzi and try to figure out where the sea, the horizon and the pool's edge meets.
Once out of the water, there is also a long ironwood sundeck, complete with a “bale” and lawn, offering equally splendid views. With a capacity of 50, a more dramatic setting for a glamourous party or wedding would be hard to imagine. But Villa 'Oh My God' is more than its exterior. Acid washed marble flooring flows through the villa, which is filled with woven rattan and sea grass furniture.
Thai silk of various colours are used to denote different areas of the villa: bronze for the games room, charcoal grey for the dining room and blue for the living room. The luxurious interior also contains thoughtful touches of Balinese culture, such as a 6-m long abstract canvas from local artist Wayan Gabrig in the living room.
To accentuate the extraordinary nature of Heavenly Residence's location, the dining room walls are white, to resemble the limestone of the cliffs, while a tropical coral fish tank brings ocean life to the guests' very eyes. Each of the four bedrooms has an en-suite bathroom with marble furnishings and Grohe taps and showerheads. Throughout, the generous use of mirrors not only serves to expand the spacious look of the place, but also reflects the wall-to-ceiling seaviews to near infinity. The effect is meant to be both palatial and simply heavenly.
