Canggu Villas in Bali, Indonesia

Indonesia » Bali » Canggu » The Chalina Estate - an elite haven

Channelling the energy of its beautiful surroundings, Chalina Estate captures the true essence of Bali with its classic architecture, lush tropical gardens and rice-field views.  The villa’s serene and peaceful riverside setting makes it the ultimate choice for weddings, retreats and large family groups.

Fully staffed, and with six bedrooms plus two extra rooms sleeping up to 12 more guests, a 35-metre swimming pool and lavish living areas, this exquisite villa exudes space and charm.

Set among Canggu’s rice fields, just minutes from some excellent surf beaches, Chalina Estate offers incredible sunsets with glimpses of the mystical Batukaru volcano in the distance.


Chalina Estate lies on the outer edge of south-west Bali’s greenbelt and is consequently surrounded by rural village culture. There are no shops, boutiques or bristling restaurants to be found in this locale, just rice fields, farmers and sunshine. A great surf beach lies just a kilometre away where can be found a charming local restaurant offering grilled seafood and Indonesian favourites, along with cold beer and locally made wines. A little further to the south is Echo Beach, a formerly small surfer enclave with a handful of good quality shabby chic restaurants that is gradually turning (with the development of an ugly 80 apartment condotel block and shopping centre) into a new commercial hub for the ever-expanding Canggu area. Rest assured, however, it can’t be seen nor heard from the villa.

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.

Ever woken up to find yourself facing a giant postcard? Well it happened to us at Chalina Estate this morning. Having left the master suite curtains open, we awoke to rice fields and coconut trees of the deepest green against a backdrop of blue sky and mountains, all neatly framed by wide glass doors. Wish-you-were-here picture perfect and not a bad way to start a day.

And it just got better and better. We had a leisurely breakfast of perfectly cooked eggs and too much coffee before eventually relocating to the sun beds beside the pool to bake in the sun, read books, swim and be waited on by the butlers: and hardly a man-made noise to be heard all day, unless you count the clink of ice cubes in an empty glass anticipating a refill.

We chose Chalina Estate as our wedding villa and could not be more happier and impressed with our stay. It is a beautiful spacious villa with well taken care grounds, service impeccable and welcoming, making it easy for the family - bride and groom can not really fault it. We will come again next time to stay at Chalina for a holiday so we can enjoy the views and the many amenities and services it has to offer. Major thanks to Agus and his team.

We were lucky enough to choose Chalina for our wedding and it was the most amazing experience. The villa was beautiful and the staff were amazing, they bent over backwards to make our stay perfect, even helping putting up decorations on our wedding day. We really couldn't have been happier and will be recomending this villa to everyone we know. We were so impressed by the whole experience.

From the time you enter chalina estate until you leave (which you won't to leave) it is the most tranquil place. The staff at the villa make this place so special they are so inviting and are always there to help. We where lucky enough to celebrate our wedding at the villa which was the perfect setting for our big day. We had breakfast at the villa everyday and a few other meals the food was amazing. It was no problem for the chef catering for 15 hungry mouths 1 being a vegetarian. We would highly recommend chalina estate to anyone wanting a peaceful escape or for you special event. And a HUGE thank you to the staff they are all so accommodating.

This is a wonderful Balinese villa. As you walk in you cant help but go "Wow". Beautiful gardens, sensational living spaces and a huge pool. We have pools at home but a pool this big is not only great to use but it you feel like the King with a private mansion! Most of the rooms are large and apart from the main house with 3 rooms there are 3 separate villas. The decor is well done. The rooms are full of charm. The saffron bedroom whilst stunning is so big it is hard to cool. Echo and Pererenan Beaches are 10 minutes away on a push bike (provided). Echo beach is a great place for a Bintang beer and to watch the surfers. No good for swimming unless you are a surfer. The toddlers enjoyed paddling and making sandcastles with the black sand. We also hired motor scooters. Its looks scary on the roads but we loved using them and we are no spring chickens. Easy ride to Tanah Lot on them and they are $7 a day. We had our kids and grand kids with us (10 of us all up). The place was great for the whole family, but you do need to keep watch on the toddlers near the water and ledges. The staff were outstanding. They genuinely want you to enjoy your holiday and are very very attentive. Agus, Pittoo, Aria, Tina, Wyan, and Gide just to mention a few of the friendly and helpful staff. The chef was excellent and fed us wonderful dishes and was very flexible. There is a good projector but we just enjoyed playing family games at night (which you need to bring.) We also hired a table tennis table which was a good thing to do for a family. The place is very quiet and looks onto rice fields. This means you are away from bigger places like Seminyak. It takes about half an hour in the provided car to get there. One negative is that there is no credit card facility. Take plenty of local cash. It cost us about $25 per day per person for all our food needs (we ate well including suckling pig and lobster). You pay for food at cost plus a small mark up. The ATMs are 20 mins away and do not always work and have a $100 to $250 maximum limit. Chalina Estate is a five star experience and we would love to go back one day. It has provided us with wonderful memories which we will treasure forever.

Amazing, beautiful!! We had the most fantastic, relaxing stay at Chalina Estate. Bagus and his staff couldn't do enough for us; the service was second to none. We stayed for five days with our families and had our wedding while we were there with 80 guests. Again, Bagus couldn't help enough! I highly recommend this stunning villa. My family and I definitely plan to return as soon as we can.

Beautiful grounds, beautiful living areas - just right for spending a relaxing week. The staff were attentive and helpful, but also knew when we needed to be left alone! They made a great effort with our young children, which made the time spent all the more relaxing. It was a perfect setting for a week away with friends.

The Chalina Estate comprises several buildings and an impressive 35m swimming pool resting upon 5300sqm of marvellously manicured gardens bordered by the Pangi River and rice terraces, with glorious mountain views.  The gardens are planted with towering coconut trees, lipstick palms and frangipanis, while a relaxation pavilion ‘floats’ above the pool.

The two-storey main pavilion presents two master suites and a guest room.  On the upper floor, an enormous master suite has a sitting area, and a large balcony furnished with a sofa for relishing the awesome vista, especially at sunset.  The bedroom has a centrally positioned king bed and a sexy ensuite bathroom fitted with a huge stainless steel bathtub and a monsoon shower.  The second master suite is ideal for a family, with a king bed, a study area with a built-in desk, and a mezzanine floor furnished with a queen-size bed.  The room is adjoined by a bathroom fitted with a bathtub and shower.  Downstairs is a study room that can be converted into a twin bedroom, plus a king-bedded guest bedroom, both with ensuites fitted with bathtubs and showers.

Three more guest rooms are housed in stand-alone garden pavilions, furnished with king-size, four-poster beds.  The bathrooms are fitted with walk-in rain showers.  Sliding glass doors open to stone terraces with access to the swimming pool. All of the bedrooms are air-conditioned, and feature dressing areas and satellite-channel TV/DVD players.

A bunk room, with room for 10 extra guests (WC but no adjoining bathroom) is also available for large groups or those holding special events at the villa.

The huge living and dining pavilion is open on four sides under a soaring thatched roof; cooled by ceiling fans and furnished with a large L-shaped sofa around a coffee table.  Four steps lead to up to the dining area where a table seats up to 14 guests.  A professional stainless steel kitchen is positioned behind here.

The remaining pavilion houses an air-conditioned lounge bar and is furnished with two daybeds and a coffee table.  TV and movies can be viewed on a large screen via a projector with surround-sound.  The pavilion features concertina doors that fold open on two sides.  On one side a terrace overlooks the river, and on the other a glass-topped table for eight provides an alfresco dining venue under the shade of a canvas sail.
