Indonesia » Bali » Canggu » Villa Penari - an elite haven



Villa Penari is a two-bedroom, contemporary-designed villa set amidst the peaceful rice fields of south-west Bali, just 20 minutes from the centre of hip ‘n happening Seminyak and ten minutes from the beach in Canggu. One of three villas in the estate, both bedrooms here are large and comfortable with ensuite bathrooms. All look out over the private pool and rice terraces, where farmers still follow their age-old practices. A team of professional, friendly staff, with personal butlers and a private chef, are on hand to take care of every need including home cooking from a menu of international and local delights.

Location

Canggu Terrace is located in the picturesque rural countryside of its namesake Canggu. In the immediate vicinity a smattering of other villas and residential homes are spaced out along a quiet road that winds between rice fields and villages. A walk or cycle ride around here will grant a taste of genuine Balinese village life. A fifteen-minute drive from the villa takes you to Pererenan's rugged beach – famous among surfers for its powerful breaks – and the more popular Echo Beach, with its string of chilled-out cafés and restaurants. There are no shops nearby apart from a few small local stores selling only the very basics, but Seminyak, with its selection of top Bali restaurants, shops and bars is only a 20-minute drive away.

About Canggu

Canggu has become the collective name for a number of villages (including Berawa, Tegal Gundul, Tiyingtukul, Pererenan, Nelayan and Babakan), which, until very recently, could still be described as a sleepy coastal locale. It's now one of Bali's coolest districts.

Here, amongst the rice fields which extend all the way down to the beach, you will not only find some of the most luxurious private residences on the island, but also a great selection of eclectic restaurants, cafes, bakeries, boutiques and beach bars – especially along Jalan Batu Bolong, which runs right down to the beach. Popular spots include Finns Beach Club, Old Mans, La Laguna, The Lawn and Ji @ Bale Sutra.

Canggu is also an area that most surfers will know about, with reef swells that are larger than those you will find further south in Kuta and Seminyak. Swimming isn’t advisable however as the rips can be dangerous, but there are plenty of other things to do from horseback riding to cooking classes. Finns Recreation Club (for which many holiday villas in the area include guest membership) offers social and leisure amenities, including Splash waterpark, Bounce trampoline centre, Strike bowling, a state-of-the art gym, a 25m swimming pool and a tennis and squash centre.

Along the coast to the north of Canggu is Pura Tanah Lot; a sea temple perched high on a craggy wave-lashed rock and probably the most photographed sight in Bali. Sophisticated Seminyak, a few kilometres south of Canggu, lays claim to the highest concentration of independent fine-dining restaurants on the island, including Sarong, La Lucciola and Ku Dé Ta, together with a wide choice of chic cocktail bars, exciting nightclubs, lavish spas and elegant boutiques.

About Bali

Bali is Indonesia’s most popular tourist location and is considered one of Asia's premier tropical island destinations. Steeped in history and renowned for its artistic way of life, Bali is a peaceful contrast to some of the more frantic destinations Asia has to offer.

The inner peace and creative talents of the Balinese has attracted artists the world over fascinated by local dancers, silversmiths, wood carvers, potters and painters that seem to pervade throughout the island. The abundant verdant fields and surrounding sea have long supplied Bali with an easy surplus of food leaving time for life’s more artistic past times. As a result everything in Bali has a creative and religious element centred around the local Banjar (residents association) – little, adorned temples are everywhere, doors are covered in intricate carvings, huge kites ward off evil spirits and colourful roadside ceremonies bring traffic to a standstill.

Bali is a popular destination principally from Australia and Asia but also from all over Europe. The island welcomes thousands of visitors each year to a relaxing lifestyle, stunning beaches, world class surf, vibrant villages, and spectacular scenery all with an exquisite tropical climate. Located approximately two hours’ flying time from Singapore the island is serviced by an international airport at Denpasar with direct flights to and from many major cities in Asia, Europe and Australia and many more via Jakarta, Indonesia’s capital.

The island offers an impressive range of leisure and lifestyle amenities including world-class golf courses, wonderful seascapes for surfing, diving and snorkelling as well as luxurious spas, chic boutiques, tropical forests, towering volcanoes and international cuisine.

Our review   Overall Rating: 7.00


The sunny smiles of the staff at Canggu Terrace never dulled during our stay, and their efficiency and enthusiasm certainly shone through too. From whipping up delicious snacks and drinks to offering to accompany us on a bike ride to explore the local lanes, the staff knew the right balance of friendliness and discretion. Between mealtimes they would remind us that we could contact them (in the staff quarters) anytime on the in-house phones which were conveniently stationed in the bedrooms, the upstairs lounge and the dining area. The master and twin bedroom set up make this an excellent family villa, however since the bedrooms are on different floors it will suit more independent kids. Small children will also enjoy splashing in the wading area just below the main pool, however since the garden is small and terraced there’s not much room for energetic children or toddlers to run around. All food and drink is priced, but we felt that it was not unreasonable and probably would have amounted to the same had we self-catered (note, there's no oven in the guest kitchen) or asked the chef to cook our own choices (grocery cost plus 30%). The staff can arrange barbecues with ease and for babysitters and massage therapists to come to the villa (for a fee) on request. Canggu Terrace is a collection of three villas that together provide eight bedrooms – three twins and five doubles. As such, we thought they'd be ideal for larger groups and family gatherings.

This is our first time to Bali in over 15 years. We have brought our 2 daughters with us, aged 4 & 16. Our 4 year old has been hard work but the staff have helped with her and been very kind to us during her tantrums! We have 10 amazing days here. All of the staff are fantastic and our surroundings are always beautifully maintained. They organized some special surprises for us and our girls, serve beautiful meals day after day, cleaned and tidied our room, garden and pool. Thank you all so much.

We come to Villa Penari for a seven night stay, our long awaited holiday and our first visit to Bali. We are looking for peace, tranquility and close proximity to local shops, temples and restaurants. We got what we wanted plus so much more! The level of service in villa has simply left us speechless. Sri, Wayan and Yami have been always available when needed, and always tending to our comfort and convenience either in the background or upon request. Thank you and until our next visit.

We find the villa very nice and quiet away from the traffic of Bali. The area is close to many good restaurants for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The staff at this villa is very kind and helpful to make our stay a memorable one. Despite that is located next to padi fields, the villa has always been kept clean at all time. Very secure as the security guards are always in place. We hope to stay here again soon.

We stayed 1 wonderfull week in Villa Penari with my wife and son. A great location not too far away from the interesting places on Bali. Staff was excellent and the villa was a dream, with huge space, all the facilities you need from bathroom to pool and from large living area to nice dining area with a view over the rice fields. We used almost all of the offered additional facilities like breakfast, lunch and dinner, taxi rides and twice the Balinese massages. Great holiday and with maximum flexibility due to our late check out for departure. Thanks for everything and would recommend to anyone.

On arriving at Villa Penari, we joked with the staff that we would never leave. Four blissful nights later and we wish we could have been staying. What a beautiful place for a holiday. The kitchen and dining room were great. We are traveling with an eight month old baby while the adults enjoyed the luxury and service, he enjoy exploring his new home and splashing in the pool and bath. The food was also fantastic. All in all a great place to stay. the staff were brilliant and handled our every request and brought lots of smiles and giggles from our baby. Well done and thank you very much.

What a fantastic place!!! My family and i have loved staying at Villa Penari. The villa has been maintained to perfection. From the moment we arrived we have loved every minute. There is so much space we forgot we have kids here with us. The staff are amazing whatever we need they arrange, from meals, drivers, massages, cold water as we leave the villa. DVDs, towels to take with us. The list could go on and on. We have also arranged our next stay in September. Thank you for having us.

Villa Penari is a beautiful villa set in lush padi fields. If you want to get away from everything and be pampered then this is the place for you. The staff at Villa Penari were exceptional and the chef prepared delicious meals for us each night. All of the staff were lovely but I would like to especially mention Giday, Yummi and Siti who were always attentive without ever being intrusive.

Rooms

Bedroom: 2
Sleeping Capacity: 6
Location: Bali

Canggu Terrace - Villa Penari's well-furnished bedrooms, living and dining areas are spaciously spread over two floors.  From almost everywhere in the villa, scenic views of the terraced rice fields greet you through floor-to-ceiling windows and sliding doors.  The villa has a contemporary Asian design and is enlivened by bright modern artwork and local artefacts.

Enter the villa across stepping-stones into the Open-plan kitchen and dining room which opens directly onto the pool terrace and features a wide wooden dining table for six scenically overlooking the rice paddies.

The villa's impressive winding staircase curves up from the dining room to the first floor where there's a twin bedroom (converts to a king bed) and a cosy air-conditioned lounge.  The lounge comes with a pair of squashy sofas topping thick pile rugs and a flat-screen cable TV and DVD player; it's a very comfy place to relax during the day or night.  Open views of the paddy fields to front and side make it feel especially light with breezes flowing gently through when the windows are fully open.

Both bedrooms at Canggu Terrace - Villa Penari are very similar in design and are furnished with centrally located beds (a king downstairs and a twin/king upstairs) topped with silk cushions, side lamps, storage areas to the rear, and sliding doors or windows looking onto or over the pool terrace and garden.  Ensuite bathrooms are finished in soft white stone and come with twin sinks and glass panelled showers with mottled yellow mosaic tiles.  The bathroom of the master bedroom on the ground floor additionally comes with air conditioning, an oversized granite tub and a second (cold water) 'garden' shower.
