Sprawling Family Estate Set Amidst The Ricefields
Chalina Estate is more than just your ordinary villa; set on 5,300 square metres and surrounded by the stunning rice fields of Canggu, yet just mintues from some of Bali’s famous surf breaks and only twelve kilometers from Seminyak, this residence offers you and your family everything you need for the ultimate getaway.
With six bedrooms and an extra study, the villa is perfect for groups of families and friends. The main two-storey residence houses three bedrooms and the study, which can easily converted to an extra bedroom, and comes complete with twin beds and kid friendly décor.
Three further bedrooms are situated in individual pavilions leading down towards the river. All of the bedroomsare air-conditioned and feature black-out curtains (great for regulating the little one’s sleep patterns!), a flat-screen TV and DVD player and a small fridge.
The highlight of the estate is most definitely the family friendly open-sided living and dining area. Cooled with ceiling fans, this spectacular two-tiered pavilion with its enormous alang-alang thatched roof provides the ultimate leisure and dining experience.
Guests can relax on the extremely comfortable L-shaped sofas and ottomans set around a coffee table. Vibrant purple and red upholstery, modern sculptures and bright artwork bring this traditional structure to life.
On the upper tier, the dining area is fit for a banquet with its huge wooden table and funky purple wicker chairs. Note to parents with young kids: next to the dining pavilion are ponds filled with water lilies, a cascading waterfall and tall vase fountains which flow gently in the background.
To the rear of the dining area is a fully equipped stainless steel kitchen.
Alongside the river, just in front of the living and dining area, is an air-conditioned lounge bar which adapts to become a comfortable cinema room in the evening, ideal for a family movie night.
The centrepiece of the villa’s outdoor area is the 30 metre swimming pool – which can be safely fenced off – that overlooks the sloping garden and neighbouring rice fields. Sunloungers shaded by umbrellas provide poolside comfort, and floating above the water, a comfortable thatched bale makes a magical spot for a massage.
Surrounded by coconut palms and dotted with fragrant frangipanis, the impeccably manicured lawns are a great place for the kids to run about freely and for parents it’s a wonderful setting for yoga and meditation as well as weddings and other special events
There’s plenty of space on the two large daybeds for you to unwind while refreshing drinks are served from a black granite counter. If preferred, the French doors can be opened onto two terraces to make the most of the tropical air; one overlooking the Pangi river and the other facing the pool, shaded with sails and featuring an eight-seater dining table.The lounge bar boasts a Bose sound system which also feeds music to the garden area.
A highlight of any holiday is sitting down to a scrumptious meal. The villa comes with a chef who can prepare anything from quick snacks to five-course dinners.
The incredible team of staff have been professionally trained to offer exceptional Balinese hospitality. The villa manager and chef will be only too happy to discuss any specific requirements to ensure you have a totally relaxed and enjoyable stay.
Despite its blissfully peaceful rural setting, the villa is only 25 minutes’ drive from the many restaurants and shops of cosmopolitan Seminyak. World famous Echo Beach is also within easy reach (ten minutes by car), where guests can enjoy the laid-back surfer vibe and incredible sunsets.
The mountains and rice terraces of Tabanan are a photographer’s dream, and the wave-lashed sea temple at Tanah Lot and neighbouringNirwana Bali Golf Course are just a fifteen minute drive away.
Prepare yourself for the ultimate family getaway!
