Imagine a series of terraces, water trickling slowly down through fish-filled ponds towards the idling river below. Overlay a line of glistening whitewashed pavilions roofed with ironwood singles; gardens of ginger, helonicia, miniature palms and ferns stepping down to a half-hidden free-form pool on the river’s edge; the sound of water spouting from intricately carved stone faces, and the distant music of a small waterfall: This should give you a good picture of the delightful Villa Pangi Gita and its rich green Balinese garden, waiting to envelop you in a sleepy calm – yawn!
Immaculately maintained and finished, Villa Pang...i Gita stands out as a beautifully designed villa very much in sympathy with its surroundings and its Balinese heritage. Each pavilion – wood floors, tall teak fold-back doors, stone walls and vaulted ceilings with woven bamboo linings – is spotless, courtesy of the dedicated staff. Antiques from around Asia provide an elegant touch of style. The three double bedrooms each stand alone with screens of thick foliage providing privacy; semi-outdoor bathrooms add a warm tropical feel. A TV room, an open-sided living room and simple poolside balé (gazebo) provide numerous places to chill, but perhaps the best seat in the house is the single recliner on the deck overlooking the river and the paddies beyond.
The surrounding village of Pererenan is tiny, yet the villa staff are drawn from here and nearby villages. Their broad smiles always accompany the service – whether it’s dinner in the raised dining room with its elegant views of the gardens, breakfast at the casual kitchen bar, drinks in the living room or on the private terraces that accompany each bedroom (provisions are on guest account), or a chilled towel by the pool. This charming yet very discrete service together with the wonderful setting is sure to relax even the most hardened workaholic – expect to unwind here. Pangi is the name of the river and Gita means ‘song’ – it’s a lovely name for a truly lovely villa.Read more
Sleepy Pererenan village sits in the coastal district of Canggu and consists of no more than a couple of tiny roads lined with local houses. The setting is rural and tranquil with little to disturb the noise of running water, the gentle whirl of overhead fans and the constant chorus of birds. Down a narrow gang (lane), Villa Pangi Gita is part of a small enclave of eight villas which line the banks of the Pangi River, separated from each other by high walls, bamboo fences, palms and creepers. Other villas in the enclave include Astika Toyaning, Villa Frangipani, Villa Bunga Pangi, Villa Tukad Pangi, and Villa Bougainvillea. The nearest beach is two kilometres away and the restaurants and shops of Seminyak about 11 kilometres.
