Space, privacy, exceptional service and effortless tropical luxury await guests at Villa Sabana. This sublime holiday retreat offers spectacular views over cascading rice-terraces and a small jungle-clad river valley in a peaceful, traditional Balinese village within the sought-after Canggu area. Only minutes drive from world-class surf breaks and some of Bali's most beautiful black-sand beaches, Villa Sabana is the perfect blend of sophisticated elegance and rural charm, served up by a superb staff team including a private chef and personal butlers. This family-friendly, five-bedroom villa presents contemporary classic architecture, an 18-me...tre pool, generous tropical gardens and a choice of stylish indoor and outdoor living areas thoughtfully designed for your relaxation and enjoyment.
Those seeking a premium villa holiday offering the full Bali experience, but with Seminyak's big city lights and fine dining choices still within easy reach, need look no further than Villa Sabana, where the rural Bali charm of postcards and travel magazines is right on your doorstep no Photoshopping required.
Framed within this picture of riverside and rice-field bliss, the villa is steeped in glorious contempo-classic, hardwood and stone Balinese architecture, furnished with Indonesian antiques, and completed with privacy and very, very good service. With its five bedrooms, 18-metre swimming pool shaded by swaying coconut palms, vast balconies, large garden for the kids to run around in, air-conditioned family room equipped with children's toys and games, and numerous elegant living areas, Villa Sabana provides ample space for large holiday groups from extended families to clusters of friends who enjoy good living and the privilege of choice.
Having one's own personal butler, chef, car and driver and security personnel may sound like Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous, but here at Villa Sabana it's simply the lifestyle every guest can expect.
Among the lawns, towering coconut palms and flowering trees and shrubs of Villa Sabana's delightful garden, alongside the inviting 18-metre swimming pool, is a spacious open-sided living pavilion furnished with deeply cushioned rattan couches. The room is equipped with ceiling fans to stir the tropical breezes, a 42-inch flat-screen TV with DVD player and an iPod docking station. At the opposite end of the pool, a shady bale presents a cushioned corner for rest and relaxation, while six teak loungers are poised for sun worship on a stone terrace that faces the pool, river and rice fields.
In a separate pavilion, the family room provides a big, comfortable, overstuffed sofa to curl up on in front of the 47-inch TV or listen to music. This is the perfect place to escape to with a good book, watch some TV or entertain the children in air-conditioned comfort. A specially made children's-size table and chairs and a toy box filled with a great selection of games and books complete the picture (see children page for more).
At the heart of the main house is the bright, elegant and very spacious dining room, which seats up to 12 guests.
