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 a...ntique 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.

I loved the villa, but the rest of my family didn\'t. You see, you\'ll either like or hate its open layout. I , being outdoorsy, like the fact that it opens to the sea, and isnt gated. My family dislikes what that means: lots of insects and geckos. I think the website needs to establish this fact more clearly -- that all baths are exposed; so is the living area. While I like it, the villa\'s age is showing. The music set is old; so is the air conditioning, which broke down. - Shaun S., , Singapore
