Villa Sungai Tinggi offers a rare taste of traditional Balinese luxury. It’s name meaning ‘high river’, this blissful four–bedroom villa sits on the banks of a small lagoon, where the river meets the sea, with over 100 metres of beach frontage overlooking one of Canggu’s infamous surf breaks.
The villa was designed and built by a family of long–term Bali residents whose love and passion for the island is evident from their choice of local materials and the museum–like collection of handpicked artworks scattered throughout the home. Exotic timber floors, coral–limestone walls and alang–alang thatched roofs mix delightfully with antique artefacts and weavings to give the villa its distinctive style and ambiance.
This admiration for the local environment extends to the villa’s magnificent tropical surroundings. Soft rolling lawns hug the landscape’s natural contours while a free–form 18 metre infinity swimming pool blends seamlessly with the ocean all the way to the horizon. Fragrant frangipanis and swaying coconut palms frame the garden amongst a sea of luscious green foliage to create a stunning and private oasis.
A key ingredient of this oasis is the warm and friendly staff, many of whom reside in the local village. They have a strong attachment to the villa and clearly love taking care of its guests. From folding back your bed at night, preparing your bath with rose petals, manicuring the garden or cooking a delicious home–style meal, they will ensure your stay at Villa Sungai Tinggi is relaxing and truly memorable.
Perfect for families or groups of friends, the villa’s abundance of space means there are plenty of places to unwind. Play a match on the tennis court, enjoy a massage in the garden balé, admire the sunset from the balcony or get together in the impressive living pavilion – you’re simply spoilt for choice.
If you do feel like venturing beyond the villa you can take advantage of the beach, right on your doorstep, which offers some of the island’s best surf. Or, if exploration and discovery’s more your thing, make the most of the villa’s car and driver and head for the majestic Mount Batukaru that beckons in the distance.
Villa Sungai Tinggi is truly blessed in that it lies right on the beach near the seaside village of Pererenan on Bali’s south–west coast. Here guests can take a leisurely stroll, surf on one of the island’s best breaks or admire the fishermen in their brightly coloured jukungs hauling in the daily catch. In this traditional rural setting, away from the city lights, where daily offerings at the village temple and meticulous tending of rice fields are the norm, guests are privy to a real slice of local Bali life.
However, should the lure of those city lights prove too strong, the upmarket restaurants, bars and shops of cosmopolitan Seminyak are just a 30–minute drive away.
