Villa Kavaya oozes old-world charm and elegance. This enchanting Bali retreat is tucked between two sacred rivers and rolling rice fields in the small hillside village of Pererenan. The tranquil surroundings of this five-bedroom luxury villa in Canggu will greatly suit a family or a group of friends looking to combine picturesque views with beach-side fun, sophisticated dining and other worldly delights.
The villa’s colonial-style interior is reminiscent of Bali’s 1930s golden age when the island’s magic was first discovered by western travelers and artists. Built along ancient feng shui principles that maximise geometric harmony and energy flow, it was designed to amplify the prosperity, health and good fortune of anyone who steps inside.
The monumental open-plan living, dining and kitchen area lies under a lofty alang-alang thatched roof and has teak wood flooring throughout. The solid 10-seater dining table and comfortable sofas perfectly complement the tropical outdoor views. From Sumatran carpets to whale bone fragments, Villa Kavaya’s antique furniture and ornaments are worthy of a guided tour.
The master bedroom and the two guest bedrooms in the main building have stunning ensuite bathrooms with indoor and outdoor showers, as well as a bathtub. A third guest bedroom is privately situated in the wooden Javanese Gladak building within the garden and has a lovely outdoor ensuite bathroom with rain shower.
Fronting the main villa building is a stunning Ernest Hemingway-style timber porch with plenty of seating and two large hammocks, as well as a round wooden dining table for relaxed alfresco meals. And from one of the comfortable seats in the imposing wooden balé, you’ll fully appreciate Kavaya’s beautifully sculpted tropical gardens and the stylish infinity pool.
The villa’s helpful staff really are the cherry on this delightfully tasteful cake. The villa manager is extremely knowledgeable, and along with the housekeeper and two butlers, will tend to your every need.
