Villa Puri Bawana
This luxury Bali villa has been designed and developed in such a way that the property blends into the contours of the surrounding hillside. A series of thatched pavilions consist of an open living pavilion, a raised dining area, an entertainment space, two fully equipped kitchens and a total of five luxurious bedroom suites. An extra bunk bed room can easily accommodate up to 5 children.
Each pavilion is linked via unique pergola-covered pathways so guests can easily find privacy around the residence or congregate in one area. Either way, from this property’s natural setting you’ll enjoy the most spectacular views imaginable. The residence is perfect for a large family with children or a larger group of friends. As it’s located within the quiet Canggu district, the property enjoys full membership of the Canggu Club, Bali’s premier colonial sports and recreation club. All guests are eligible to enjoy its facilities as well as the clubhouse and pool.
Sliding glass doors on three sides of this bedroom provide fabulous views across the river and the rice terraces beyond. A traditional timber balcony offers another outdoor spot to marvel over such views and provides two daybeds. Furnishings include a beautiful king-size four-poster bed, a couch and a desk and chair. You’ll also have a flat-screen TV and DVD player that is secretly hidden within a cabinet.
A timber floor leads towards a dressing area with large wardrobes to the rear of the bed and links to the en-suite bathroom. Here, a black terrazzo floor contrasts with the older, traditional wood flooring. Frosted glass hides a walk-in shower. And you’ll have his and hers washbasins with separate mirrors. The en-suite leads into a private garden area that has been planted with local shrubs. An overhanging roof shelters the area although you will be able to take a bath and shower directly under the moonlight sky.
Suites two and three
These two bedrooms are located in the main family pavilion. The second bedroom has twin beds that can easily be switched to a double bed whilst the third bedroom has a king-size bed. Both rooms are similar to the master suite in terms of look and style with glass doors on two sides. Both feature cool terrazzo flooring, full air-conditioning and ceiling fans.
The suites each have their own private dressing and vanity areas with wardrobes, double sinks, indoor showers and toilets. Suite two has an additional garden area with an open-air bath whilst the third suite looks out towards the lily pond and its infinity-edge moon pool. If you select suite three you’ll be sure to relax on the adjacent timber decking in the daybed.
Suites four and five
Bedrooms four and five are located in the two-story part of the villa. Each comes fully equipped with air-conditioning, ceiling fans, daybeds and reading lights. An iPod docking provides your favourite music in each suite. Bedroom four is downstairs with its king-size bed, a walk-in wardrobe, double washbasins and a combined toilet and shower unit. A garden bathroom houses an open-air rain shower beside a water feature. An external set of stairs leads up to suite five, the only upper bedroom suite in the property. Whilst the suite is beautifully furnished with a magnificent king-size bed upon a wood flooring, the real highlight is the fabulous view across those rice terraces and river valley.
The living pavilion within this stunning Bali luxury villa takes center stage and overlooks the swimming pool, stepped gardens and rice terraces beyond. This open-sided building is actually based on a traditional Bali meeting place or ‘wantilan’, as it is known. A pitched roof is supported by pillars whilst quaint lanterns are suspended from a high ceiling. This enormous space is furnished with sofas, ottomans, a coffee table, a traditional Javanese daybed and a pair of white coconut-shell chairs. The main living area is linked to the rest of the villa by a covered pathway. Walking in between the pavilions is an experience within itself with a sense of exploration and anticipation.
The TV room and entertainment room is underneath the dining pavilion. Here, you’ll have a wall-mounted satellite TV with a DVD and CD player, as well as a Wii game system. Two grand sofas, a glass coffee table and two ottomans can all be moved around to create additional space. In one corner of the room is a bar that can double as a DJ’s decking area. Glass doors open out onto a terrace next to the BBQ and pool decking area.
The children’s room or spillover room can sleep up to five children on bunk beds and the adjacent bathroom comes with a shower, toilet and washbasin. The room is also suitable for a nanny or helper of course.
The dining area is raised slightly and has been constructed with local serai stone. An elongated suar wooden dining table seats up to 14 guests with a magnificent view surrounding you on all sides.
Not one but two fully equipped kitchens come with this luxury Bali villa. One is the service kitchen whilst the other is a state of the art designer kitchen, situated next to the dining room and linked by an enormous service bar. A sound system will also play your favourite tunes in this spot which makes for a wonderful ambience whilst cooking or chatting over a cocktail or two.
All in all, Puri Bawana is a truly fabulous villa that previous guests have marveled over. Whilst completely secluded, you’re not too far away from the busier tourist spots of Seminyak, with its endless array of designer boutique shops, craft shops, jewellery shops and restaurants and bars. Spas and massage venues are a plenty as you may expect. And Ubud, the island’s wonderful arts and craft center is a little further away to the north.
