Sakova Villa 171 offers a blissful retreat away from the madding crowds, but just meters from Canggu Beach on Bali’s south-west coast. Hidden behind private walls and resting amongst lush tropical gardens, this four-bedroom villa is perfect for families and groups seeking a quiet getaway. Child friendly and with warm and attentive staff, guests will find it hard not to relax and unwind in this beautiful Balinese home-away-from-home. Whether it’s lazing by the pool, taking a stroll through the rice fields or catching a wave at one of Canggu’s popular surf breaks it won’t take long to succumb to the infectious island spirit. A private p...ath bordered by plants and limestone carvings leads to Sakova Villa 171’s traditional Balinese doors. Behind these doors guests are greeted by an aling-aling wall (a short partition wall which, according to religion, protects the villa from bad spirits), a fishpond and a bubbling water feature. The main two-storey pavilion houses the master suite, one guest bedroom, the living area and the kitchen. Adjacent to this is the dining balé, and to the far side of that the other two guest bedrooms lie side by side below a thatched roof. Each room faces the lagoon-style pool and lush gardens enabling guests to enjoy the peace and tranquility from every angle, while those wishing to embrace the spiritual side of Bali can observe daily offerings being made to the gods at the villa’s very own garden temple.
All four air-conditioned bedrooms are similar in design with polished cream terrazzo floors, ceiling fans, beautifully carved wooden beds draped with mosquito nets and antique batik throws. Tastefully decorated with Javanese antiques and traditional paintings and portraits, the rooms are very homely and comfortable. IPod docks in all bedrooms and TV/DVD players (in all but bedroom four) add a modern touch, while the lovely garden bathrooms, dotted with bluestone pebbles and with open-air showers, inject tropical style. The ground floor master suite (with the additional luxury of a tub in its bathroom) lies immediately off the main living area, with glass sliding doors opening onto the pool. The upstairs guest bedroom has great views over the gardens and is accessed by a wooden staircase that can be easily closed off to small children. Bedrooms three and four are tucked away in their own pavilion with a shared veranda for cheeky daytime naps on the comfortable bright red daybeds. One of these rooms features a giant four-poster bed large enough to sleep four children!
One of the greatest advantages of staying in a villa is the personalized service provided by dedicated staff. The team at Sakova Villa 171 has been professionally trained to offer exceptional Balinese hospitality. The villa manager and chef will be only too happy to discuss any specific requirements to ensure guests have a relaxed and enjoyable stay.
