About Villa Sungai
Villa Sungai is a cluster of about five pavilions that embodies the harmonious mix of traditional Balinese architecture – with its unmistakable alang-alang thatch roofs – and rustic luxury. With a predominantly off-white color scheme, interiors are appointed with weathered and ornate wood furnishings and fixtures, as well as with beautifully crafted woven wood and lavish pieces. Amenities are distinctively of hotel and resort grade – to ensure each and every guest’s complete ease and fun. Hidden in one of Canggu’s traditional villages as well as amidst verdant rice fields, Villa Sungai provides you a countryside getaway with a vibe that’s truly genteel.
Outdoor And Pool Area
Fringed by lush tropical plants and trees on one side is the 18-meter swimming pool. Give in to its refreshing, glassy waters for some mindless wading. Or, push everyone in for some splashy fun and games. For a tan, you can lounge on heavily cushioned, wooden pool beds on the stone deck at one end of the pool. But as soon as the rays begin to burn, retreat to the shade of the poolside bar and hydrate with a cool, fruity drink.
The Living Space
At the semi-open, breezy and high-ceilinged main pavilion is the living area. Around its fitted and cushioned as well as woven wood couches, you can all gather for engaging conversation. Right behind the dining area. On its marble-topped, ornate wooden table for eight, you can all get a taste of authentic Balinese specialties – as well as foreign fare – dished out by the resident chef from the villa’s kitchen which is in another pavilion. An alfresco dining area – with a long, timber wood table, classic outdoor folding chairs and picnic wares – can also be set up out on an open-air deck. Right beside is a detached spa pavilion where you can soothe tense muscles with a traditional Balinese massage and other wellness treatments. Behind the indoor dining area is a media room where you can catch shows you’ve been closely following. Or, replay your most beloved classic film.
The villa has three bedrooms. Two are in the main pavilion while one other is in an exclusive pavilion at one end of the swimming pool. All bedrooms have canopied and draped king-sized beds, dedicated bathrooms with outdoor rain showers, as well as direct access to the swimming pool area.
Staff And Services
In charge of carrying out the villa’s daily services is an efficient, friendly staff that’s made up of a personal guest assistant, a gardener, a laundry helper, a driver as well as housekeepers and security personnel. In addition to the chef, a babysitter and a spa therapist may, upon your request, be called in. Their services come with a separate charge however. You’re also entitled to the free use of the villa’s car. Scooter rental is available.
Around Villa Sungai
Villa Sungai is situated in Canggu. A few minutes by car from the villa is Pantai Batu Mejan or commonly called Echo Beach. Acknowledged as one of Bali’s hottest surfing destinations, Echo Beach has a beautiful seascape, a breathtaking sunset as well as bountiful seafood. Highly recommended dining places are Sticky Fingers, Osteria Italiana, Sate Bali, Dian Café and Echo Beach House primarily because of their barbecues and boat-shaped buffets. Go and see Tanah Lot – an ancient sea temple carved from ocean rock. You may also want to find out if your game is at par with the 18-hole course of the Nirwana Golf Club which encompasses rice fields and cliffs with magnificent sea views.
