From the moment you weave your way past a grove of bamboo and arrive at the Arsana Estate you will start to relax. The sheer amount of space! Kids can be kids and adults can unwind and have fun too.
Arsana is Sanskrit for ‘flowing’ – an apt name for this extraordinary two-hectare estate where a cascade of living and sleeping pavilions streams past lotus ponds and water walls down the terraced hillside towards the river on the boundary.
A destination in itself, this is a place where one can truly relax and be in the flow. No need to lift a finger here; the professional staff will work magic for you behind the scenes. No need to leave, but if Canggu calls, it is a short drive away!
Bali’s famed black-sand surfing beaches and Canggu’s laid-back café and beach scene may only be a short drive away, and the bright lights of Seminyak reachable within half an hour.
Lounge by the 19-metre pool overlooking the river, or play pool in the games room. Work up a sweat in the gym or smash it on the tennis court. Enjoy a massage in the spa annexe or watch a movie in the home cinema on the 85-inch TV or drop-down projects screen. Enjoy unrushed conversation at the head of the five-metre dining table while the chef serves a gourmet meal. Then retire to one of the four spacious ensuite bedrooms for a nap!
Massive contemporary carpets mix with oriental rugs under a copper canopy of designer lamps. A palette of warm greys and soft sand flows through textured linen, latticed teakwood and textured walls. Contemporary paintings complement antique Chinese ceramics, and heritage artefacts sit comfortably alongside modern facilities. The British owner’s passion for Asia shows in carefully curated furniture too, such as burnished lacquerware chests and towering Chinoiserie chairs.
The Arsana Estate’s multiple living and sleeping pavilions luxuriate over two hectares of stunning terraced gardens sloping down to the river. From the entrance and staff office an avenue of lush tropical greenery leads to a grand stairway that descends to the enormous U-shaped living and dining pavilion. A level below is the 19-metre swimming pool, two sun decks, pool pavilion, bar, massage annexe and breakfast pergola. The four bedrooms occupy three pavilions spread along an upper garden terrace. Overlooking the river is a gym and balé, while elsewhere in the garden is another balé, children’s play area and full-size tennis court.
Step across a lotus pond flanked by massive verdigris copper planters into the magnificent open-plan living pavilion lined with bi-fold glass doors and windows. Within this immense space – the social heart of the estate, designed for easy entertaining on a lavish scale – supremely comfortable sofas, over-sized armchairs and daybeds form multiple seating areas that flow around an alfresco sun terrace with fire bowls rising from the pond. A five-metre dining table, inset with stone and surrounded by 16 armchairs, commands centre stage in one wing. Alongside is a guest kitchen, where eight woven-leather bar stools are set before a marble-topped island counter with butler’s sink and under-counter fridge; behind, a wall of latticed teakwood conceals the wine fridge, fridge-freezer and hi-tech central electronic controls. (The professionally equipped service kitchen is tucked away out of sight).
To one side of the living pavilion is an air-conditioned home cinema. A bank of modular seating and ottomans faces a massive 85-inch TV screen and a 135-inch retractable projector screen – perfect for watching satellite TV channels or Apple TV movies; there’s a video library and surround-sound Sonos system and, for the kids, PS4.
Also off the living pavilion is an air-conditioned games room, dominated by a full-size pool table set before a gilded triptych of bamboo stands. A pair of lacquer-ware cupboards house a welcome collection of board games and puzzles to keep all ages entertained.
Down a few steps from the living pavilion is a delightful alfresco breakfast pergola with table for 10 set before a signature wall of Palimanan stone carved panels, where guests may enjoy their morning coffee and croissants under a canopy of white Thunbergia flowers.
Flanking the 19-metre pool, and overlooking the river snaking below, is an open-sided living pavilion with a comfortable seating area and table for 10 set before a handsome tree-of-life relief carved from Palimanan stone. This fan-cooled area provides a shady retreat from the heat, and an alternative to the cushioned loungers resting under parasols on the two Indian stone sun decks.
On either side of the water-wall cascading down from the living pavilion above are two large annexes – one fitted as a service bar area, the other as a massage space.
Just below the pool and overlooking the river is a large cushioned balé. A second balé rises on Sunset Hill at the highest part of the two-hectare estate.
Within the Arsana Estate is a Benkirai-wood pavilion that houses a dedicated gym /yoga room. Here you will find a rowing machine, treadmill and pulley weights system. A wall of glass leads onto an ironwood deck looking down onto the river ravine.
Elsewhere in the two hectare estate is a full-size hard-surface tennis court.
All five light-filled air-conditioned and fan-cooled bedrooms are tastefully decorated with natural tones in warm greys and creams, with red, turquoise and blue accents. The furnishings are curated with exquisite and expensive taste – supremely comfortable beds with top-range King Koil mattresses and luxury cotton bed linen, beautiful lacquerware cabinets and comfortable chairs, and both sun-shade and blackout curtains. Antique ceramics and elaborately carved mirrors balance contemporary art and hi-tech lighting controls. All five bedrooms have a private terrace with comfy reading chairs set before the view.
In the master suite, warmed by a red-hued Persian carpet, rests a king-size bed dressed in fine cotton bed linen. Antique lacquerware cabinets and Chinese pottery sit comfortably alongside contemporary art, lamps and leather chairs. Elaborately carved Balinese double doors open onto a small sitting room where an upholstered sofa is set before a 50-inch screen with satellite channels and Apple TV. Behind the bedhead, flanked by triple-door wardrobes, an opening leads into the bathroom where the twin-basin marble vanity, walk-in rain shower and WC enclosure all look onto a private courtyard pond with water feature and Buddha statue.
This suite has a connecting door to the children’s bunk room.
Both guest suites occupy their own self-contained pavilions, with panoramic treetop views from their private terraces. Each has a bedroom – one set up as a king, one with twin beds – and separate alcove rooms filled with deeply cushioned daybeds and 43-inch TV screens with Apple TVs. The daybed areas can be converted into children’s sleeping areas. Beyond the extensive dressing areas are bathrooms with walk-in rainshowers – and in the twin suite, a bathtub – looking onto courtyards with lotus ponds.
The children’s room has the capacity to sleep eight children in considerable style and comfort. Built into the length of a bright orange wall-grey toned striped wall are three sets of bunk beds screened by curtains. Resting on a pair of contemporary black and white carpets are two twin beds that can also be configured as a king. There’s a 65-inch TV screen and Apple TV to keep the kids amused indoors, and beyond the private terrace is a football pitch.
A brightly tiled bathroom is accessed from the dressing room, where there’s also a connecting door to the master suite.
This is a family-friendly Villa where children have their own space and little ones can sleep in with parents comfortably.
