The gentle sound of falling water pervades the air at Villa Atacaya. Fountains, fishponds and a holy spring gush forth and combine with a spectacular jungle setting – one filled with towering trees, tall palms and tropical plants and flowers – to create a serene and natural idyllic holiday retreat.
Only 13 kilometres from the buzz of Seminyak, Villa Atacaya is built into the bank of the heavily forested Yeh Penet River, offering gorgeous valley views. The contemporary styled villa is built over three levels with a garden courtyard as its centrepiece and a 15-metre infinity-edged swimming pool at its border.
The two-storey main building has dining and sitting areas on both levels providing a choice of formal or informal, outdoor and indoor, settings. There’s also bar and an air-conditioned TV room opening onto the gardens and pool , Four bedrooms, each with stylish ensuite bathrooms, fill the other pavilions and down at riverbank level is a fifth bedroom, a yoga deck and a bale bengong relaxation pavilion.
Villa Atacaya is staffed by a manager and a competent team of butlers who will go out of their way to make sure every guest’s need is taken care of, while the in-house chef will whip up any number of creations to satisfy all ages and tastes. A car and driver is available for up to eight hours a day at a special rate, to whisk you off for a night on the town or visit the picturesque Tanah Lot sea temple.
Villa Atacaya shares a dedicated 400-square-metre event space with its neighbour Villa Iskandar. When the two villas – known collectively as the Nyanyi Riverside Villas – are rented together they offer a 9-bedroom option for large groups of friends, extended families and wedding parties.
