Canggu Villas in Bali, Indonesia

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



A gentle river and lush rice fields flank the stunning, fully staffed, seven-bedroom Villa Hansa in the peaceful village of Pererenan, south-west Bali.  A series of spectacular architectural buildings, including two antique Javanese Joglo houses, have been adapted with contemporary glass and filled with every comfort under an exquisite and rare trapezium roof.  Two traditional wooden gladak houses with timber shuttered windows and raised verandas make wickedly fabulous bedrooms.  Two swimming pools at opposite ends of the sweeping compound plus multiple private zones create a breathtaking retreat for both families and friend groups all a whisper away from Seminyak.

Location

Villa Hansa rests in a small village within the coastal community of Pererenan in Bali’s south-west district of Canggu.  This intimate rural setting offers visitors an ideal opportunity to experience traditional Balinese culture and community life.  Beyond the garden border and accessed by stepping-stones across the narrow River Tibu, a steep bank of terraced rice fields extends.  Staff can easily arrange hikes through this scenic landscape (which alternatively can be viewed at leisure from bedrooms three and four).  Several naturally beautiful beaches, renowned for their surf breaks, are nearby:  Pererenan Beach is just a 300m stroll or quick drive through the village, while long-time surfer’s haunt, Echo Beach, is one kilometre away.  Although the immediate area remains quiet and undeveloped, during the past few years, several excellent cafes and beach bars have sprung up along nearby Jalan Batu Bolong – much closer than busy Seminyak, and well worth investigating.  Try Old Man’s, Betelnut or the perennially gorgeous Hotel Tugu.

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: 7.80


As spiritual souls with environmentally and community-aware leanings and a thirst for local culture, this one-of-a-kind villa has our name all over it.  Villa Hansa (no coincidence it’s named after the Goddess of Knowledge) offers visitors so much more than just another Balinese deluxe villa (although the design is pretty gorgeous too).  The devoted staff and ever-smiling manager sustain the Hansa philosophy when the owners are away.  As the villa’s spiritual advisor, the manager is amazingly knowledgeable about Balinese culture and traditions, he was happy to divulge all over dinner and accompany us to a traditional Hindu ceremony in the local village.  If you’re lucky enough to stay during a full or new moon (like we did), you also get a rare opportunity to watch Hindu priests bless the property.  Staff, too, went out of their way to introduce us to daily Balinese life:  teaching us how to make traditional palm leaf offerings and Indonesian delicacies in the kitchen – activities that the children really enjoyed.

And it’s refreshing to find a villa where the owners are committed to eco-friendly practices, a healthy lifestyle and giving back to the community.  These surfing and yoga devotees support local organic farmers, practice recycling in the kitchens and insist on biodegrable household cleaning.  We also learnt about their wonderful trust fund, the Hansa Foundation, set-up to educate local children in traditional culture, arts, music and the environment.

We thought that Villa Hansa would be ideal for groups of friends and for family groups spanning a wide age range – there are bedroom configurations here to suit all.

Great pool and deck area. Bedrooms and bathrooms very comfortable. Living area a little basic and needs up dating and needs some audio equipment. Staff pleasant and helpful but could do with a little more finesse - Needs some signage, very hard for taxis to find.
Over all good value.

We enjoyed our stay at Villa Hansa. It is a nice and charming villa in a quite location. The staff is very polite and made us feel at home. However, in terms of location, it is a little too far away from the beach and traffic is horrible! But in an overall, it is definitly value for money.

Hansa Villa has exceeded our expectations, it is so beautiful with it's landscaped garden and luxurious accommodation. The master suite makes us feel like royalty. The carved canopy is amazing, beautifully crafted by Balinese wood carvers. The ambience in the gardens is pure serenity. The running water, lily ponds and rice paddies opposite the river cocoon us in the very best Bali has to offer. All the staff are so caring and tend to our every need. They are wonderful with a month old Madison, babysitting her while her parents can sit and eat with the rest of the family. It has been so lovely together as a family. It's back to Australia. Thank you Heny and all the lovely staff

  Overall Rating: 9.20


We loved our stay at the villa. This was our first time to Bali and it made quite an impression. Our family is looking forward to coming back again someday. We had our family of 5 (with 3 teenage daughters) plus my retired parents. The main living area was big and comfortable and decorated beautifully. The bedrooms were all lovely and were very roomy.
The bathrooms tended to have a few insects, but was expected since they are outdoor bathrooms.
The staff was amazing and catered to our every wish. We felt like they were family by the end of our week. We also enjoyed having masseuses come to give us poolside massages.
The pool and poolside area was gorgeous and we enjoyed it every day.

Bedroom: 7
Sleeping Capacity: 16
Location: Bali

Built in contemporary Balinese style with traditional Indonesian touches, Villa Hansa rests in 1,200sqm of riverside grounds.  The stage-setting entrance features a pond filled with lotus blooms, enclosed by a moss-consumed wall. Across the stepping stones, you arrive in the open-plan living pavilion, traditionally designed with fine Borneo wood floors and ironwood roof.

To the right, the sitting area is furnished with two white leather sofas, contrasting with antique wood chairs and table, framed with Indonesian objets, stone statues and vases of exotic blooms. From the lofty ceiling hangs a spectacular lantern.  Respecting the spiritual ambiance, an iPod and dock are the only electronic diversions here. The dining area is dominated by a solid teak table seating ten, to the left of which is a generous and well-equipped modern kitchen.

Entirely open-sided (protected by bamboo blinds), a second living pavilion is kept cool by ceiling fans and natural breezes. Outside, a staircase leads to a detached yoga room.

From this pavilion, pretty gardens scattered with stone murals and statues stretch down to the infinity-edge pool and well-furnished pool deck, opposite which  an ironwood-roofed balé (gazebo) makes a secluded spot for repose.

Villa Hansa’s master suite is luxuriously adapted from an antique timber joglo, the suite contains a king-size bed and features a private 12-metre pool, a quiet walled garden, and a chic ensuite fitted with a large stone bathtub.   An adjoining TV room connects to an antique timber gladak furnished with a single four-poster bed.  Set on lawns in a quiet corner of the estate is a second timber gladak house that is ideal for teens or guests seeking extra peave and privacy.  This romantic antique building has twin netted beds, an ensuite shower room and its own shaded veranda.

Four ensuite bedrooms located in two garden wings flank the pool’s left side. Each varies in character and décor, but all come exquisitely decorated and feature four-poster king-size beds and stone-clad bathrooms with circular stone bathtub.  Two of these bedrooms boast additional outdoor garden bathrooms, while the other pair provide large porches facing the rice fields.  A lower garden leads down to a Hindu shrine and the River Tibu, marking the property’s boundary.
