One of Canggu’s best…
This Canggu location is a huge draw card, especially for families. With the beach a few minutes away and Bali Equestrian Centre, Finns Beach Club and the Canggu Club both around the corner, it’s all at your fingertips. Not to mention the countless trendy eateries and boutique shops dotted around the neighbourhood. It really is the place to be, and still a ten minute drive into the lights of Seminyak.
The Villa offers four spacious bedroom suites with walk-through dressing areas and light-filled bathrooms that spill onto either a private garden or terrace. Each bedroom comes with an iPod dock, 32-inch TV with satellite channels and DVD player, a choice of air-conditioning an overhead fan, and a window seat that converts to a single bed for extra guests!
Master bedroom suites
The two ground-floor master bedroom suites feature king-size beds on reclaimed teakwood floors, large dressing areas and equally generous bathrooms with twin vanities, rain shower cubicles and terrazzo- or granite-surround bathtubs looking onto private gardens beyond.
Two upper-floor guest bedrooms offer the flexibility of twin beds that can be joined to make a king, an indoor shower room reached via the walk-through dressing area, and a small well-screened and completely private sun-terrace.
The open-plan living pavilion has a formal seating, dining and media games area with a bar counter separating the guest kitchen and, beyond, a second service kitchen. Attached to the end of the pavilion is a large pergola with further seating. In the second pavilion, which is fronted by a covered terrace on both storeys, two ground-floor master suites flank a central ‘art-gallery’ foyer leading to the main entrance. Stairs lead up to the second level where two more guest suites and a plush home theatre open onto the terrace.
An unusual feature is the grass-carpeted ‘living roof’ of the large open-sided, fan-cooled living pavilion visually linking the villa with the neighbouring rice fields dotted with shrines to Dewi Sita, goddess of rice and prosperity. This is the place for lavish entertaining, between waterfall walls to one side and an 18-metre azure pool lined with mature frangipani trees to the other. There’s a formal seating area with deeply cushioned cream sofas arranged in a convivial U shape for easy conversation. The huge dining table hewn from a single slab of suar-wood seats 14 in splendour at Philip Starck-style ghost chairs. In the middle, recessed into a wall of display cabinets and flanked by tribal artefacts and objets d’art is a 47-inch TV with satellite channels, DVD player and Bose sound system where kids of all ages can flop onto brightly coloured beanbags for an afternoon’s Wii gaming.
A granite-topped bar counter separates the open-plan guest kitchen and staff kitchen beyond, equipped with welcome extras such as espresso machine and wine fridge.
The upper-level multimedia room is cocooned with wall-to-wall shag-pile carpet, padded walls and masses of plush oversized sofas and beanbags facing an enormous projector screen with home theatre incorporating a hard drive loaded with 300 movies. There’s also an electric piano in this room.
In-villa spa treatments are easily organised on request. The pool pavilions, reading pavilion and sunset pavilion are all popular massage spots, but our two massage beds can be set up anywhere you choose.
This is a great Villa, with wonderful staff and an ideal location.
