The splendid 5-bedroom Sakova Villa 181, complete with 30-metre swimming pool, rests upon almost 2 acres of land (7000m²) surrounded by emerald rice fields, and is within walking distance of the beach near the fishing village of Canggu on Bali’s southwest coast. This is a villa designed for relaxation and getting away from the stresses of quotidian life, and boasts a classic Bali design while sacrificing nothing in terms of creature comforts. Its spacious grounds and many features make it ideal for families or groups of friends traveling together. The magnificent Living Pavilion presides over the property. It is flanked by a terrace laid with grass-edged Palimanan paving stones, and overlooks the swimming pool, terraced gardens and rice fields. This open-sided pavilion is modeled upon the traditional Balinese "Wantilan" or village meeting place, with a soaring, two-tiered roof supported by pillars, complete with pendulous lanterns and ceiling fans above a mint white sandstone floor. The expansive space is furnished with two comfortable sofas, ottomans, a coffee table, a decorative, antique Javanese daybed, and a pair of white coconut shell chairs with a small matching table. The Living Pavilion is linked to the rest of the villa by a covered, colonnaded walkway with black and white chequered tiles. Off the walkway is situated a guest washroom decorated with Indian stone tiles and accessed by a colorful, antique Balinese door.
The air-conditioned Master Suite features a warm timber floor and sliding glass doors on three sides under a high roof. The modern furnishings include a king-size four poster bed, a couch and a desk and chair. A flat screen TV with DVD is hidden within a rising cabinet that appears at the press of a button. This bedroom is complemented by a spacious timber balcony, which looks across the river to the rice terraces beyond. Here, two cushioned daybeds provide the facility for complete relaxation. A dressing area and wardrobes (complete with a safe deposit box) are built in behind the bed and linked to the en-suite air-conditioned bathroom.
