Villa Tukad Pangi Reviews


Our Review

This villa is chic and contemporary in style, whilst also oozing Balinese charm in its design and landscaping – the best of both worlds. The owner has obviously brought in top architects, landscape and interior designers to help realise his dream. The riverside location is enchanting, perhaps a little out of the way for some but well worth the extra few minutes travel time.

Villa Tukad Pangi is very private and peaceful and perfect for a retreat – both romantic or for a small group. The villa is a great base for families with older children, but it’s not ideal for the very young as there are no railings separating the veranda from a drop to the riverside. It is not perfect for seniors either as the pools could be difficult to get in and out of, and there are several steps down to the lower level.     

There are plenty of spots to relax, read a book or watch a movie, so groups would not get on top of each other when the villa is at full capacity. It’s a fabulous place for a cocktail or dinner party with the pools and garden lit up romantically at night. The kitchen is fit to cater for a banquet … and the chef will happily oblige. We enjoyed some excellent meals at Villa Tukad Pangi and the team of amiable staff were amongst the best we have experienced in Bali. A stay at Villa Tukad Pangi is akin to having a five-star retreat all to yourself, and comes highly recommended. It was nice to be greeted by the same familiar faces when we came back to the villa after three years. Nothing has changed in this sleepy rural riverside locale except perhaps the trees getting a little taller. Still such a beautiful retreat and one we were happy to return to. The rate now includes a car and driver for eight hours a day (excluding petrol), which makes the villa’s remote location less of an issue.

Highlights

Top marks go to the riverside location which accentuates this superbly well-designed and furnished property. Plus you can never have too many facilities: three televisions, two big screen projectors and two infinity swimming pools are pretty good going for a villa of this size. The staff also deserve special credit for enhancing the experience with their professionalism and lovely Balinese charm.

Surprises

The only surprise we got at Villa Tukad Pangi was that the wooden trellises and surrounding greenery of the master ensuite don’t offer quite enough privacy should staff or other guests be passing or hanging out by the lower pool. However a simple solution to this minor inconvenience is to hang a towel or sarong on the trellis.
