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

Villa Arza is a three-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 10 minutes from the beach in Canggu. One of three villas in the estate, all three bedrooms 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.


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. Despite the master bedroom’s tub and second shower, each of the villa’s three bedrooms are equal in size and décor so it makes a great place for groups of friends looking for an equal share. Families will also find refuge here, and there is a kid’s pool, which is a plus. 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.

I stayed in Villa Arsa for a week with my family which our friends stayed in Villa Penari and Villa Damai. There were 14 of us in total and our chef AGUS cooked us fabulous meals every day, very cheaply but delicious and plentiful! We had a yoga teacher come to us and do a yoga class which was great and Sri and Wayan organized everyday trip and massage/restaurant meals whenever we wanted to go out. The villas are all beautiful and immaculate and were cleaned daily. I would highly recommend Canggu Terrace to anyone,but especially to any families that want to travel together.

A delightful stay at Villa Arza which exceeded our expectations as this was our first experience of an Elite Haven villa. Capable Gede and his trusty staff of Sri, Wayan, Chef and a few others, really made us feel at home and they spoilt us with their warm and helpful service and thoughtful touches. The meals that we had in the Villa surpassed all the meals that we had outside. Quality and quantity of food with the added convenience of dining in, especially when you have young children. We highly recommend the villa BBQ - what seafood! Lots of happy holiday memories which we hope will be the first of many more to come.

Even though the villa is situated in a rural area, it is very clean regardless the nature that surrounds the premises. Villa Arza is a suitable option for those who want an idle holiday away from the madness of the city.

Canggu Terrace - Villa Arza’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.

The entrance to the villa takes you across stepping-stones into the airy and spacious dining room with its decoratively carved wooden table for six. Set back from the dining table is an open-plan guest kitchen with centre island finished in smooth glossy granite that comes with a gas hob, microwave, kettle and toaster. A washroom and small room that could be used to sleep a nanny lead off to the rear of this downstairs space.

At the far end of the dining room an impressive winding staircase curves up to the first floor where one of the three bedrooms and a cosy lounge are situated. Air conditioned and with a squashy L-shaped white sofa, a flat-screen cable TV and DVD player, this upstairs lounge is a very comfy place to relax during the day or night. Open views of the paddy fields to front and back make it feel especially light with breezes flowing gently through when the windows are fully open. All of the bedrooms at Canggu Terrace - Villa Arza are identical in design (two with king-size beds and one with twins), and furnished with centrally located beds topped with silk cushions, side lamps, a dressing area to the rear, and sliding doors or windows onto either private furnished terraces (the two ground floor rooms) or views over the pool and garden. Ensuite bathrooms are finished in soft white stone and come with twin sinks and glass panelled showers with mottled green mosaic tiles. The two downstairs bathrooms are air conditioned and the master ensuite is also fitted with an oversized granite tub and a second open-air shower whose water spills out from a terracotta urn.
