This Bali Villa in North Bali is a luxury mountain retreat, built into the dramatic view -1,025 metres above sea level - in Kayu Putih, a nearby traditional North Balinese village. It is perched so high in the mountain that sometimes it is shrouded by clouds but mostly offers panoramic mountain, valley and ocean views to take the breath away.
One highlight is the 10m x 3m infinity lap swimming pool that stretches across the viewing edge of this unique property.
The Villa is about six kilometres up the mountain, through the village of Kalibukbuk, to the village of Melaka, about 25 minutes from the tourist centre of Lovina, which is some 8 kilometres west of the former Indonesian capital Singaraja.
Surrounded by nature (Kayu Putih means 'white wood'), this unique villa, described as 'daring and bold' by visitors, is adjacent to a beautiful temple, burial ground for a long forgotten Balinese King, and shaded by a huge sacred tree. Unlike many other frequently used Bali temples, Pura Pendum is only used for ceremonies twice a year.
This beautiful mountain retreat is about 1.5 kilometres further up the mountain from the renowned five-star Damai Resort and its altitude makes it a comfortable five degrees cooler than on the coast. Surrounded by palm and teak trees, natural jungle beauty and aromatic clove plantations, this villa is, however, just 25 minutes from the restaurants, bars, musical entertainment, shopping, local markets, fishing and beachfront dolphin tours offered by nearby Lovina.
For guests who enjoy tours and activities, the villa is also nearby to such north coast attractions as Menjangan Island in Bali's national park, famous for its world-class SCUBA diving and snorkeling ("better than the Barrier Reef", according to one Australian). Or perhaps you would like to visit the coral reclamation beach at Pemuteran to the west, which is like swimming in an aquarium. There are also spectacular waterfalls, lakes, hot springs, a turtle farm, a pearl farm, coffee plantations, golfing in a volcano's caldera about 2 hours away, and even mountain trekking activities available.
The spectacular view from the extensive front patio, complete with a big jacuzzi, looks over Lovina to the Bali Sea, across the mountain valley and eastwards down the Singaraja coast. At night, the coastal plain from the patio looks like a field of sparkling diamonds and often, haunting gamelan music and the voices of chanting Hindu priests can be heard as geckos bark and roosters crow; such atmosphere. The large patio is also ideal for 'dining in the view' and also has lounge seats for enjoying gins and tonics, conversation and good company, or perhaps just for guests to meditate or bury themselves in a good book. If the fancy takes guests, they can also choose to dine in the pool-side Bale downstairs.
This luxury hideaway, with Balinese and Javanese style interior decor, has three bedrooms, each with their own en suite bathroom, two with more than king-sized beds and one with two singles. There are also two traditional Indonesian 'day beds' - one in the study and one in the main living area - so the villa can sleep and accommodate up to 8 people, if needed. Group bookings of up to 8 people are the most economical as the 'per head' cost is lower. The main bedroom offers particularly spectacular views through windows across the front and has an exclusive entrance door to its own 'private garden' and private gazebo, to the rear of the villa. Downstairs there is even a large media and games room.
Bali Villa (North Bali) is an eco-tourist's delight so book now.
