Properties like Sungai Tinggi Beach Villa are few and far between. This enchanting, traditionally inspired family home is a travel destination in itself, set within a vast estate that boasts over 100 metres of absolute beach frontage looking onto one of south-west Bali’s renowned surf breaks.
Sungai Tinggi Beach Villa (sungai tinggi means ‘high river’) was designed by long-term Bali residents as a spacious and comfortable family home. Created in the style of a traditional Balinese compound, the villa comprises a series of living and sleeping pavilions oriented for optimum privacy as well as for the glorious ocean views. The four-bedroomed main house (with a lounge that can be converted into a fifth bedroom) can be rented independently from the private two-bedroom Joglo that’s located to the side of the main building. The liberal use of local materials – exotic hardwood and terrazzo floors, coral-limestone walls and vaulted alang-alang thatched roofs – is testimony to the owners’ passion for Bali, as is their stunning collection of museum-quality art and artefacts that contribute to the villa’s unique character and charm.
This appreciation for the local environment extends to the villa’s magnificent tropical gardens, which make a dream setting for a tropical wedding celebration. Soft rolling lawns dotted with fragrant frangipanis and swaying coconut palms hug the landscape’s natural contours, while an 18-metre infinity swimming pool blends seamlessly with the ocean panorama. A circular deck provides ringside seats for viewing Bali’s spectacular sunsets, and a traditional thatched balé decorated in black and white check makes an inviting respite from the sun. Work on your serve at the tennis court (shared with a neighbouring villa), arrange for a soothing massage in your room, or gather for cocktails in the impressive living pavilion. With such a choice of social and private space, Sungai Tinggi Beach Villa is perfect for families or groups of friends.
A friendly staff team pride themselves in taking good care of their guests. From cooking delicious Balinese meals to preparing your canopied bed at night and running your rose-petal bath, they will ensure your stay is truly memorable in every detail. And should you wish to explore beyond the villa, a car and driver maybe arranged for sightseeing, shopping and adventure at a small extra fee.
