Villa The Sanctuary

Villa The Sanctuary

Indonesia » Bali » Canggu area » Canggu

If you imagine Bali purely as a sun, surf and sand-between-the-toes holiday destination, then The Sanctuary will give you a whole new perspective on this Island of the Gods. The Sanctuary is jungle, river, tall trees with buttressed roots: what marketing and advertising people describe as charming, heartfelt, grand, traditional, rural, and the very essence of old Bali. It really is a stunner of a villa, a real stunner. It’s so stunning we have to say it more than once.  

The size of the place is beyond belief. Three hectares of river and jungle land with eight queen- and king-size beds and a bunkhouse for 20 youngsters, The Sanctuary is something that would suit very large extended families with hordes of kids. It only follows that weddings here would be stupendous with all that immaculate lawn space and the abundance of natural surroundings.

Our group of four could hardly take it all in, so after a quick look round we pretty swiftly decamped to the swimming pool terrace and billiard room where we spent the afternoon eating, drinking, pooling (wet and dry), and marvelling at the wildlife. We had one of the standard bedrooms (and by standard I mean pretty big and posh) and our friends lucked into the self-contained villa, which had its own pool and a massive bedroom with views right down onto the river gorge – a very wise choice, and one we were too slow to make. Still, with the distance between us, we were able to sing in the shower at the tops of our voices without the worry of judgement.

Shalimar Villas - Villa Cantik

Shalimar Villas - Villa Cantik

Indonesia » Bali » Canggu area » Seseh-Tanah Lot

Villa Cantik could not be more different from its neighbouring big sisters. When we visited, a couple with young baby had just stayed there and had clearly enjoyed the secluded privacy of the villa. Lounging in the sun or taking meals poolside at the simple table make this villa so casual and relaxing. The living room is less impressive but I suspect is little used, other than for watching a DVD of an evening or knocking up a quick drink. The whole focus of this villa is the stretch from bedrooms to pool. Shalimar is well set up for large groups, a special function or extended family – 12 bedrooms in total. Villa Cantik would be a perfect hideaway for, say, the grandparents or those needing a little space away from the main crowd. It also works perfectly well in its own right as a villa for a small family or a couple of friends. As with all the villas in Shalimar, the staff are excellent although you do have to search them out a bit at Cantik as they may assume you would rather have your privacy.

Shalimar Villas - Villa Kalima

Shalimar Villas - Villa Kalima

Indonesia » Bali » Canggu area » Seseh-Tanah Lot

When you walk into Villa Kalima you just know you're going to have a good holiday. The living room will be the central hub of action (or inaction) and has a wonderful feel to it – so relaxing. In fact with so many beds around – sun loungers in and out of the water, sofas fit for a football team or two, a huge sprawling daybed in front of the TV – two of the master suites even have daybeds in the bathrooms – lazy afternoons with books and magazines (bring your own) will drift by all too quickly. We kicked off our shoes and were in the right mood within minutes of arrival, helped by some lovely staff who would not let us lift a finger and were only too keen to make our stay a pleasurable one. The food was delicious (you pay for the ingredients, the staff buy and cook. Prices are a bargain). Breakfast is prepared in the villa kitchen, which can be a bit intrusive, but most meals are cooked in the main kitchens for the whole Shalimar complex around the back. The pool is a delight and seems a natural extension to the main living room, and the master bedrooms are lovely although some might be a tad nervous about the semi-open bathrooms of the two ground floor ones. The basement bedrooms are fine – best suited to kids though.

Rumah Sirocco

Rumah Sirocco

Indonesia » Bali » Canggu area » Canggu

The moment we walked into Rumah Sirocco the place reached into our throats and pulled out the word “Wow!” Black, black, a bit of green vegetation, some charcoal grey, and more black. This place is cool. We opened all the windows, making the most of the villa’s design, to enjoy the feel of the breeze coming in off the rice fields and the ocean.     

The views are incredible; looking out of the windows there is an expanse of rice fields, wide open skies, and space. The dining table was bathed in sun in the late afternoon and its soft couches were very amenable to a glass of wine and idle chatter. The charming beach is literally a three-minute walk away, and as sunset approached we walked down to the water’s edge to watch the sun sink into the ocean. There is a fun swing bridge leading to the sand that kids will love. We especially enjoyed, as you should, a beautiful Balinese meal prepared by Sirocco’s resident chef, and served ably and sweetly by the waiting staff (dressed in black).

Villa Tanju Bali

Villa Tanju Bali

Indonesia » Bali » Canggu area » Seseh-Tanah Lot

Staying at Tanju is a wonderful experience. The journey from airport to villa took us past some delightfully scenic rice terraces and through typical Balinese villages, keeping the beach hidden until the last moment when the road opens up to reveal a stunning panorama. Honeymooners and romance seekers will feel the magic: floating petals in a sunken bath; walks on the beach or snuggling up on a daybed to watch the sunset, this is your private patch of paradise. With plenty of space and ample creature comforts to keep everyone happy, Tanju will equally captivate families. We found that life slipped easily into a blissful rhythm: a morning walk on the beach (with stunning views to Bali’s majestic Mount Agung volcano) before a breakfast of fresh tropical fruits or a cooked selection of our choice; pool time until a relaxed lunch, then a siesta before more pool time or, for the energetic, a game of tennis at the villa or golf at the world class Nirwana course fifteen minutes’ drive away. Then it was time for drinks to accompany the daily sunset spectacular, then showers and the ritual application of after sun as we waited for the call of the dinner gong. Fresh grilled fish and seafood, wonderful spicy Asian salads and soups, all simply, deliciously prepared and presented. Children drift upstairs to doze in front of a DVD while adults sit chatting to the sound of the waves before another night of peaceful sleep, happy in the knowledge that tomorrow heralds another perfect Bali day.

Villa Tantangan

Villa Tantangan

Indonesia » Bali » Canggu area » Seseh-Tanah Lot

As a child I always dreamed of living in a beach house; sleeping to the hypnotic sound of waves crashing on the shore and waking to more of the same, and at Villa Tantangan the dream briefly came true. Early each morning we would follow the garden path leading to an ornate Balinese door shrouded in foliage that opens onto the deserted beach. Here, black sand glints in the sun and the wide bay is littered with driftwood and coconut husks. Towards the end of the beach the banks of the Yeh Penyet river gives way to the ocean, and the revered sea temple, Pura Gede Luhur Batungaus, which rises from the dark craggy rocks. Taking a different garden path led us through a wild natural garden filled with pink hibiscus, banana trees and bamboo groves to a small temple, and beyond the Tantangan river.

We really liked the eco design features which were attractive as well as being smart! The gardens on top of the flat roofs helped the buildings blend with their surroundings, and you can forget any notion of ‘eco friendly’ equalling rustic; it was more a case of an undercurrent of luxury enhancing an outdoor experience. We enjoyed panoramic sea views from the bed and from our sunken bath tub, and we loved the aptly named infinity pool which truly had infinite views stretching across the ocean to the horizon The well-equipped kitchen also deserves a mention, because, as an avid cook, it was another dream come true: in fact it was so appealing that we sent the chef home so we could enjoy the experience of ocean-view cooking – it was an absolute pleasure.

Note: The approach road can be a little bumpy in places, but passes through beautiful rural scenery which, to our minds, just added to the enchantment. Guests wishing to make use of the complimentary car and driver during their stay can also walk a few minutes down the beach and get picked up on the main road to Nyanyi, should they prefer. .

Umah di Desa III

Umah di Desa III

Indonesia » Bali » Canggu area » Canggu

Villa Umah di Desa III is sunny and cheerful and feels delightfully homey with its soft colours, pretty tiles and lovely garden. The design is modern yet rustic with an almost cottage-like vibe, but with all the elegance you would expect in a Bali villa. It is also utterly peaceful, and in the evening we could hear the sound of waves crashing in the distance. We loved the privacy and discretion: staff ring the doorbell before coming in, so there are no awkward surprises should you decide to take a skinny dip. Completed in December 2012, Umah di Desa III was sparkling new and fresh at the time of our visit, a contemporary villa with immaculate linen, the plumpest of cushions and shiny new appliances.

Walking to the beach gave us a pleasant glimpse into our picturesque neighbourhood. Take care though; the currents are quite strong here so make sure to swim between the flags. The funky beach clubs W and Potato Head are an easy stroll along the sand and you can get a casual Indonesian meal at the rustic cafes strung along the beach. Or get dressed to the nines and head to Mozaic Beach Club – one of Bali’s best restaurants – for a memorable dining experience. We also discovered nearby Watercress, a charming restaurant with great salads and cakes, and lovely rice paddy views. Naughty Nuri’s, famous for its barbecue ribs and Martinis, is also very accessible. The location was perfect for us, not in the thick of Seminyak, but close enough to ride the bikes (complimentary) or to flag a cab.

Villa Valentine

Villa Valentine

Indonesia » Bali » Canggu area » Canggu

As well as being exceptionally comfortable, Villa Valentine has a sense of light and space that you could only dream of in Seminyak; yet it’s close enough to that most happening of Balinese centres to make popping in for a meal or shopping trip a piece of cake. We spent a lot of time in the poolside pavilion which is the ideal chill zone - shady during the day and peaceful in the evenings, and is very well set up with lamps, stereo, and even a bar fridge. It’s also one of the best places to appreciate the sprawling gardens, which are park-like in scope and design. We thought the quirky furnishings were fun, especially the zebra-print chaise longue and the glitter balls, while the dining room with its art deco-style chandelier and fabulous feature mirror just begs for interesting dinner parties. One of the things we like most about Villa Valentine is that everything is so soft, fluffy and enveloping, from the daybeds to the Thai cushions to the plush black towels. We also liked the great choice of restaurants within walking distance, from cheap and cheerful warungs, to cafes like Butter (good for breakfast treats) and Canggu Plaza with pizza, Japanese food and Brazilian barbecue.
