Sakova Villa 227 is the pinnacle of style, service and spaciousness. Set amongst sprawling lawns and exotic tropical gardens, this expansive villa, designed by one of Asia’s top architects, combines modern luxury with traditional elegance to create a sophisticated sanctuary perfect for weddings and special events. Located in the sleepy seaside village of Ketewel, on Bali’s south-east coast, the property offers stunning ocean views across neighboring rice fields, tantalizing glimpses of sacred Mount Agung in the distance and the sound of rolling waves, tinkling water features and singing birds to lull guests to sleep at night. Featuring fi...ve luxurious bedrooms, an open-sided living and dining pavilion, restaurant-grade kitchen, entertainment lounge, 25-metre lap pool and a full complement of staff, this palatial villa is sure to impress. Upon entering Sakova Villa 227’s traditional Balinese gateway, the grandeur of this magnificent property is immediately apparent. From here, a wooden bridge traverses a large lotus pond overlooking the manicured sprawling lawns that extend all the way up to the main house. To the right of the lotus pond rests a private two-bedroom guesthouse with lounge and self-contained kitchen. The principal residence, located to the rear of the property, features a master suite with ocean views, TV lounge, kitchen, two guest rooms and a large open living and dining pavilion that opens onto the rolling lawns. A separate entertainment pavilion with an outdoor dining terrace sits next to the 25-metre infinity pool, offering great views of the ocean across the neighboring rice fields.
- Master suite
The impressive air-conditioned master suite is housed in its own pavilion separated from the living and dining area and the kitchen by fish ponds and frangipani trees garlanded with orchids. Stepping stones lead to a set of carved wooden doors that open to present a welcoming Buddha statue and private Palimanan stone terrace. Glass doors reveal the suite’s TV lounge furnished with two grey-silk sofas and floor cushions for watching movies on the large flat-screen satellite TV with DVD player. Adjacent to the lounge, a small reading room enclosed by glass appears to float above a fishpond.

Sakova Villa 227 is located in the sleepy seaside village of Ketewel just off the Klungkung Bypass, also known as Sunrise Road, which runs along Bali’s east coast. Hidden behind coral-limestone walls a few hundred meters from the glistening black shores of Pabean Beach, the villa offers ocean views from the pool area and master bedroom, as well as glimpses of Mount Agung in the distance. Surrounded by rice fields, tobacco plantations, papaya, banana and coconut groves this is still a very traditional area untouched by tourism, however access to the bypass means it is only a ten-minute drive to Sukawati’s art and craft market, fifteen minutes to the cafés and restaurants of Sanur and 30 minutes to the cultural capital of Ubud. Ketewel itself is the origin of the celebrated Legong Bededari Dance, and the neighboring village of Saba produced the finest Legong dancers on the island. Pabean was once a small port through which oriental traders brought their products; at low tide you can still see the structure of the old harbor, and a Chinese cemetery is located nearby. Balinese Hindu purification ceremonies are held beside the ocean at the sacred Pura Segara sea temple, and the glistening black sandy stretch of coastline is popular with surfers and beachcombers but swirling currents and a lack of lifeguards make it unsuitable for swimming.
