Indonesia » Bali » Canggu » Avalon I - an elite haven



With a delightful open-sided living pavilion, spacious dining room, air-conditioned media room and a 14m pool set in gorgeous gardens, there’s plenty of living space for socialising as well as private corners for quiet retreat at 4-bedroomed Villa Avalon I.  Bedrooms are equipped with flat-screen TVs and DVD players, and a ten-strong staff team (including a competent chef) work discreetly in the background to provide stellar service from morning until night.  The villa is just three minutes’ walk from the ocean and 15 minutes from Potato Head in Seminyak.

Location

The three Avalon villas are on a sleepy residential street with pedestrian access to the endless sands and blue waves of Kayu Putih Beach.  You’ll fall in love with La Laguna, the gypsy-themed restaurant known for its photogenic bridge and sunset view, and the pleasant ebb and flow of joggers and dog walkers on the beachfront throughout the day.  Popular destinations such as Finn’s Beach Club and Echo Beach are easily reached by walking along the sands, or by hire car or taxi.  A grocery store and ATMs are also within convenient waking distance (300m).  This area is the unofficial border between Seminyak and Canggu – both “it” places in Bali with amazing spas, shops, dining and dancing.

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: 8.80


There are a lot of great things to say about this villa.  First, thank you wholeheartedly to the staff for the warm welcome and for graciously putting up with all our requests.  They made everything about this trip special for us and we’ll never forget it.  The owners obviously put a lot of careful thought and attention into the villa as well.  There are all kinds of interesting artefacts on display and plenty of travel guides and books on Asian interior design to digest.  The bedrooms were larger than expected, and the TV and DVD player were a big plus.

But the winning feature of Avalon has to be its location. It was a treat to find such a large – and affordable – villa so close to the beach in Canggu.  Being able to pop out to the beach without having to pack a day’s worth of stuff for the whole family was the most freeing holiday experience we’ve had in years.  We could essentially wake up and go straight down to the beach, and then bob back and forth between the beach and the villa as we pleased. It’s that close.

Staying on a dead-end road was also really special because it meant the beachfront was much quieter than other beaches where cars and motorbikes could go.  Walking through the La Laguna restaurant and crossing its wooden bridge to get to the ocean was a welcome detour (rather than sneaking by on the footpath beside it) and we spent plenty of time as patrons there, too.  You could easily watch the sunset there daily.  As big fans, we didn’t mind hearing their weekend DJ sets from the outside areas of our villa.  I would stay at Avalon again in a heartbeat.

We love the botanical gardens, quite a drive but lovely cool air for a walk in the shady trees and great high wires for all ages and abilities. Had an epic day trip to Borobudur - internal flight about 1 hour. Java has a different feel - but also beautiful like Bali. Did a morning cooking lesson with a visit to the market - very colorful and wonderful to see the work that goes into making the delicious food.

We arrived in Bali at night, after a long flight and drove to Canggu in heavy traffic. We traveled down a rough road, turn the corner and the magic happened. The villa was stunning even at 03.00am and the welcome warm. The villa exceeded our expectations. It has so much character, space and attention to detail. The garden is lovely. For us, it was a family reunion with our two sons and their families, from Sydney, Australia and Wales (UK). It was a perfect relaxing time watching our grandchildren play in the pool. No words can express our appreciation of the kindness and helpfulness of Andy and all his staff. Nothing was too much trouble, organising trips, meals and taxis. Thank you so much to everyone for wonderful memories. We wish you all happy lives and good luck in the future.

Sleeping Capacity: 12
Location: Bali

Avalon I is a very comfortable two-storey Bali villa with four private ensuite bedrooms and ample space to socialise.  Like flower boxes, gorgeous lotus ponds fringe the building where it meets the lawn, and at the centre of the vast garden lies an inviting 14-metre swimming pool.

Square to the shallow end of the pool is the open-air dining area, which is both a gathering place to share meals and a crossroads between inside and out throughout the day.  When they’re not serving fresh juices or putting freshly ironed sheets on the beds, staff will occupy their time in the kitchen behind the dining room.  As guests, you are invited to use the kitchen as much as you like or blithely forget why you’d need one.  Relax in the air-conditioned media room beside the dining area, with sofas and a TV as well as shelves of novels, children’s books and board games from floor-to-ceiling.  There is a generous offering of interior design books and travel guides placed throughout the designer villa.

Upstairs, a billiard table and set of soft sofas makes the main living area an ideal retreat for after supper.  This elegant room with its lofty alang-alang thatched ceiling, is cooled by sea breezes and opens up completely on one side, with great views over the villa’s pool and grounds.  On the far side of the pool, in the middle of the diamond-shaped lawn, is a classically styled antique timber joglo, where you can relax in total serenity.

Each of the four bedrooms has a king-size bed, a sitting room at the front with two daybeds where kids can sleep, a spacious ensuite with two vanities and a separate bath and shower.  Accessed from the main building via an open-air walkway, the upstairs master bedroom is a stylish roomy suite with plenty of natural light.  Its floor-to-ceiling windows and outdoor balcony overlook the pool and garden.  The downstairs master bedroom is equally pleasant and boasts a patio at ground level.  Mirroring the two master suites from the opposite side of the villa and pool are the two pavilion bedroom suites.
