In spite of the ‘high-design’ tendencies that characterise the simplicity and style of Astika Toyaning, we didn’t feel that it’s a look-but-don’t-touch kind of place. To the contrary, it’s very much the kind of space that finds you taking a deep breath and feeling like you’ve landed in the lap of peace and relaxation.  

The dining area, with its gorgeous wooden feasting table, just begs for long lunches followed by satiated snoozes followed by long dinners followed by satiated snoozes… you get the picture.  In fact, the use of wood throughout the villa adds beauty to the simplest of spaces and objects (who knew a bathroom basin could be such an object of lust and envy?) while the effective and dramatic use of red adds a certain modern glamour to the décor. Astika Toyaning’s 1600 square metres of space, give all guests plenty of breathing room, and when you add to this the proximity of water – the river, the pool, the water feature – you’ve got a villa tailor-made for the ultimate in relaxing holidays.

Highlights

It’s the thoughtful little details that add greatly to the Astika Toyaning experience. Personalised Spa Factory pamper products in the bathrooms; individualised themed décor in the rooms; towels folded like sleeping dogs on the beds in the twin room – touches of genius. Of course, the bigger details, like an outdoors Bose sound system, add their own touch of genius to the villa too.

Surprises

This seems to be a pervading theme in Bali homes, but the seating in the living area, albeit it attractive and serviceable, doesn’t beg to be lounged in.

A very well laid out villa which accommodated two families very comfortably. Nyoman and his team were fantastic - highly recommended.

Fantastic break, like home away from home...if your home has a personal chef, turn down service and daily cleaners!
