Immerse Yourself in the Tropical Beauty of Java

‘Sala’– Sanskrit for house, Spanish for formal room, Thai for an open pavilion in which to seek shelter. Not just luxury new accommodation, but a temple for the soul – private light-filled sanctuaries designed to lift the spirit, and soothe the senses when you take up residence in East Java’s cosmopolitan city of Surabaya.

Lavishly furnished to blend Java’s rich culture with Indonesia’s Dutch colonial past, these private, prestigious lodgings have been fully furnished with hand selected antiques and impeccably styled with a showcase of local artworks including intricate Balinese wood carvings.

Designed by leading architect Simonata, the sophisticated tri level homes showcase Kalimantan hardwood floors, 2.8m (9ft) ceilings, dramatic teakwood doors and open staircases for a feeling of elegant, refined space.

Set across three expansive levels, with ground floor service quarters for a maid, the scene is set for complete and utter abandon behind the whisper white walls of ‘Sala’. Romantic timber balconies invite you to cast your gaze across your 10-metre infinity edge pool – crystal blue waters lapping at the fringes of a lush green water garden, the delicate scent of frangipani in the air.

These are dwellings which inspire indulgence: king sized bedrooms, marble bathrooms and stately living rooms under a canopy of designer lights, cementing your place as a VIP guest.

With close proximity to three golf clubs, the National Hospital, Surabaya International School and a thriving restaurant scene celebrating local, European and Asian cuisine, this flagship location has you poised to experience the very best of Javanese hospitality.

Available for long term lease only, ‘Sala’ includes closed gate security, air conditioning, furniture, cutlery, garden lighting and complete privacy in a self-contained home.

With an average temperature of 29 degrees all year around, Surabaya is a 30-minute flight to Bali and a 90-minute flight to the Indonesian capital of Jakarta.
