Hidden away in a quiet rural village, fringed by rice fields and a singing creek, yet less than 20 minutes’ drive from the beach, designer boutiques, international restaurants and the hip ‘n happening nightlife of Seminyak, the enchanting Villa Cantik is a magical retreat.
This gracious estate and Balinese hideaway retreat, with its manicured lawns, gorgeous gardens, alang alang thatched roofs, antiques, artwork and colonial style furnishings, rests upon a generous 3000 square metres of land. The estate comprises a grand Main House with three bedrooms, a three-bedroom Lumbung Cottage, and a romantic one-bedroom Guest Cottage. There is also a natural rock swimming pool, an antique wooden bungalow that can be used as a playhouse or an extra bedroom for kids, and two traditional lumbung rice barns, which serve as massage pavilions.
Villa Cantik (Villa of Beauty) is a true Bali classic; a group of 14 people could stay here and still lose each other within its depths. This feeling of seclusion and privacy extends into the blissful gardens, which are full of surprises, including some magnificent mature trees and a secret meditation garden bordered by rice terraces. The villa is ideal for families with children, groups of friends, yoga retreats, weddings and events.
