From the moment you walk through the main pavilion and glimpse the infinity-edge lap pool, swaying coconut trees and terraces of rice fields extending beyond, you know you’re onto something special. Set within almost three thousand square metres of riverside grounds in one of Bali’s most charming coastal communities, five-bedroom Villa Sabana comprises four spacious buildings of contemporary tropical architecture with a double-storey main residence as its majestic centre-piece. Throughout the superbly designed and calming property – built in 2008 – the grace of Bali and the owner’s unique style is reflected.
Teak flooring and coffered ceilings contrast with white Palimanan stone walls, while balconies and sitting porches have been thoughtfully positioned to capture the stunning backdrop of rice fields and distant mountains. Modern custom-designed furnishings have been imported from across the region, while Asian antiques, artefacts and contemporary art works are tastefully displayed throughout. All this is supported and enhanced by a team of ten fully trained staff, experienced and highly adept in their individual roles, yet personifying the warmth and hospitality of the Balinese. Noted for their friendliness and devotion to making your stay as relaxing as possible, the staff are particularly good with children of all ages.
Villa Sabana provides a round-the-clock service of four butlers who are happy to attend to all your needs, whether its fixing a cocktail or tracking down a favourite DVD; an amiable full-time manager and exceptionally talented in-house chef, renowned for her delicious Asian and Western cuisine – anything from Indonesian delicacies like spicy snapper and tuna steamed in banana leaf, to Mexican tortillas and die-hard kids’ favourites. The staff will take care of the grocery shopping, with provisions charged at cost price plus a small additional fee for transport.
This peaceful hideaway – as suitable for groups and couples as it is for families – also makes a great base for exploring Bali, starting with a surfing beach just ten minutes’ drive away. And the villa’s seven-seater car is complimentary for up to eight consecutive hours a day (petrol on guest account) to transport you on your adventures. All in all, Villa Sabana offers five-star pampering, but without the confines of a five-star hotel.Read more
Villa Sabana is located along the far end of a quiet, unpaved cul-de-sac, in the seaside village of Pererenan, close to Canggu. Surroundings are typical of this coastal area: charming agricultural landscape dotted with local dwellings and an increasing number of luxury residences. One of Sabana’s biggest draw cards is the bank of verdant rice fields that stretch beyond the coconut trees and small river which mark the boundary of the property.
