Villa Atacaya Photos

Check Availability


Integrated into the banks of the Yeh river, Villa Atacaya is built on three levels and entered from the top tier via a water garden which lies below a vertical rock garden planted with orchids and tree ferns.  Here, a splendid open-sided living and dining room is furnished with sofas and chairs around a coffee table plus a solid wood dining table for 12, and adorned with a huge painting and a statue of a reclining Buddha.  Next to the dining area is a self-contained, small-yet-fully-equipped kitchen. Accommodation on the middle tier is arranged around a sunny courtyard and, to one side, the villa’s sacred pond.  Facing the courtyard, a second open-sided lounge area is flanked at one end by a bar and by a small air-conditioned TV room (equipped with a 54-inch flat-screen TV, blu-ray disc player and multiple external speakers) at the other.  The doors can be folded open to extend the TV room into the living space, enabling larger groups to enjoy movies. Furnishing the courtyard is a glass-topped dining table with 12 white metal chairs that are rendered almost invisible against the white paving and bright white walls of the bedroom pavilions.  As night falls, a striking feature here is the ‘dancing flames’ of a gas-driven fire bowl filled with water.  On the far side of the courtyard, the 15m infinity pool appears to overflow into the river; it is bordered by a sun deck, furnished with six sun beds and two umbrellas.  All five bedrooms are equipped with air conditioning, ceiling fans, satellite channel TVs and DVD players, and furnished with king beds, all have views of the river or the sacred pond, and all have distinct colour themes and stylish ensuite bathrooms fitted with standing rain showers. Four of the bedrooms are accessed from the courtyard and one from the riverside.  From the master, a pair of colourful carved Balinese doors leads to a private water garden where a river-rock bathtub for two rests open to the sky.  A spiral staircase winds down to a riverside yoga deck sheltered by a rustic bamboo roof draped in tumbling thunbergia and birds-nest ferns. Also on this lowest level are a balé relaxation pavilion and the fifth bedroom, both with glorious views of the river.
