Indonesia » Bali » Canggu » Sungai Tinggi Beach Villa - an elite haven

A rare find along Bali’s south-west coast, this unique six-bedroom home, comprises a four-bedroom main villa, which can be rented alone, and a charming two-bedroom guesthouse located in a quiet corner of the grounds. Sungai Tinggi Beach Villa enjoys 100 metres of private beach frontage on almost 12,000 sqm of lush gardens, and makes an idyllic wedding venue.

The villa is beautifully designed and blends harmoniously with the natural environment. Coupled with the infectious smiles of the warm and friendly staff, and the amazing cuisine prepared by the dedicated in-house chef, it’s no wonder guests are captivated by Sungai Tinggi Beach Villa’s appeal and authenticity.


Sungai Tinggi Beach Villa is located in the village of Pererenan in the Canggu area, next to the windswept beach, which is famous among surfers for its powerful breaks.  There is a strong current here, however, so swimming is not recommended.  In the immediate vicinity are two or three other villas , rice fields, the river estuary, a temple and the general buzz of Balinese village life.  There are no shops in the village apart from a few small local stores selling only the very basics, but there are two cafés beside the beach, both of which are popular with surfers.  Ombak Café does a great selection of Western and Indonesian favourites along with a seafood barbecue, all served on the first floor vantage point.

A twenty-minute walk along the sand (or 4km by road) will bring you to Echo Beach with its multitude of beachfront eateries, including The Beach House, which offers indoor and outdoor seating, and an extensive international menu, together with a daily barbecue of fresh fish, lobster, giant prawns, clams, steaks, kebabs etc.  Live music takes place here on Sunday evenings, starting at around sunset.  There is a huge choice of fine dining, as well as mid-range, and cheap ‘n cheerful restaurants in Seminyak (10km).  Seminyak is also home to numerous designer boutiques.  For horse riders, the Kuda P stables are just 3km away, while one of the most dramatic and venerated temples in Bali, Pura Tanah Lot, is 10km ride.

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: 8.20

Sungai Tinggi Beach Villa lies right beside Pererenan surf beach, 10 kilometres north of the downtown Seminyak beach scene, so it‘s very private, very secluded and very much all yours.  An organic boundary of trees and shrubs, instead of the usual high stone walls, makes a pleasant change, and there is plenty of space, greenery, and wide open vistas of the ocean.

 Our stay at this villa was blissful. We enjoyed the comfortable informality, not only of the staff but also the layout of the villa and garden.  The staff were keen to please; they indulged us with delicious home-cooked goodies, freshly squeezed tropical fruit juices and service that came from their hearts.  The swimming pool is free-form and fun but also long (and deep) enough to do as many laps as you deem appropriate.  We lazed in the garden balé and hung out poolside until just before sunset, when we headed upstairs to have a couple of beers and a game of pool in the open air lounge.  The west coast of Bali is renowned for its magnificent sunsets, and this lounge has to be one of the best places to watch it happen.

This villa surpassed every possible hope we could have for a special, relaxing and pampered holiday. From the moment that we arrived until we left the staff and management of Villa Sungai Tinngi were superb and couldn't do enough to look after us, whether it was arranging some snacks and drinks by the pool or organising trips from the villa or a full set dinner. The location of the villa is fantastic and on the beach, although about an hour from Seminyak with traffic, but more than doable and easy to arrange. The beach is not great for swimming but was perfect for the kids to play in the sand and waves and also for long walks and to watch the b beautiful sunsets. The Villa set up, bedrooms, bathrooms, pool, etc were brilliant and had a really lovely and homely feel to them. We would definitely recommend this villa for others and will look to stay there again in the future if possible.

An enchanting private villa escape within half an hour of the hustle and bustle of Seminyak - Villa Sungai Tinggi is set in a beautiful oasis on Pererenan beach, one beach up from the famous Echo Beach. The villa is set back far enough to give a sense of complete privacy in tranquil surroundings, while still maintaining spectacular views out to the ocean and beyond. The design is old-school Bali, with every room facing the ocean with large glass doors to ensure the view remains uninterrupted. The two master bedrooms have adjoining studies, which can also be used to accommodate cots for young children. The fabulous daybed overlooks the pool and is the perfect spot to watch the sunset sink into the water. The staff are friendly and accommodating, if a little slow at times. The food can be a little inconsistent depending on who's on duty, but we had some wonderful lunches there with close friends. Their dedicated driver, Nengah, is very good, and will get you places as quickly as possible, but in complete safety. Highly recommend.

We stayed at Sungai Tinggi to attend a wedding, while there we visited friends and family while they were staying in nearby villas; their villas were also beautiful but direct beach access and views made Villa Sungaii Tinggi far superior to the other villas, the sea breeze ensured we stayed cool made the stay so much more enjoyable. Ketut, Kadek and all the staff were fabulous and couldnt do enough to make our stay fabulous, they couldn't do enough for us and cooked up storm of delicious food each and every day. Would definitely return.

My husband and I chose to spend our 40th wedding anniversary in our favorite holiday destination with our children and grandchildren, and chose Villa Sungai Tinggi on the basis of its beachfront location and accommodation. We could not have chosen better, everything was perfect! 6 adults and 5 children ranging from 1 to 9 yrs fitted beautifully, the staff made us feel so welcome and spoilt us totally.We had a couple of health issues (not Bali Belly!)and the staff were so caring and helpful, and the children loved them. The food was wonderful, it was an effort to leave the Villa to eat out, so we didn't too often! The villa itself is beautifully maintained, we loved the style and layout - creates a wonderfully relaxing ambiance. We would love to think we will return!

We chose Villa Sungai Tinggi for our son's wedding ceremony and holiday and we couldn't have chosen a more beautiful place.

This is the first time that I have hired a villa and I am converted! What a fantastic villa, location and amazing staff!! We had a great time there the sunsets were magnificent! We were all very please with the staff and with the quality of food cooked in the villa you never need to go to a restaurant that is for sure! Expect to put some pounds on! If you want a day trip just ask the driver to come up with a plan and he can do his thing. I don't think you will be disappointed with the Villa and if we can we will be heading back as often as possible.

We recently stayed for six nights being two families with two teenagers, two boys, two girls. We consider ourselves as discerning international travellers who have travelled extensively. This was our first time staying in a Bali Villa. In summary the Sungai Tinggi exceeded our expectations on all counts and we have no hesitation in recommending the Villa as a fantastic place to enjoy a family holiday. In particular the food was just sensational , we couldn't fault it at any point, with the staff happy to cater for any taste. No member of our party fell I'll (always a good sign in Asia), and after one night out at a restaurant we decided eating in at the Villa just couldn't be beaten on price, quality, and diverssity, our kids basically ate everything. The staff were simply great and really make for an enjoyable holiday as the level of service provided was brilliant, nothing is ever a problem, friendly beautiful people who make the Bali experience so unique. The Villa layout is terrific and very well suited for families, it is big, well appointed, and pretty much on the beach, tons of room for the kids to run around and lose themselves, space abounds for everyone. Pool is awesome. We really couldn't fault the place with anything. Just has a great homelike feel about it like no other place we have ever stayed. We would not hesitate to return to the Sungai Tinggi, the biggest compliment we can pay.

It's a beautiful villa, we have the garden, the pool, the beach, and the sea. The service and the food is excellent. It's a highly recommended villa. Our initial stay is for 5 nights, it was so good and everyone was so happy, that we extended another 3 nights! We will come back to stay...

I really enjoyed my short stay at this villa. The location is a delight right next to the beach. The sunsets are superb. The villa is very homely with loads of books, bits and pieces belonging to the owners and lovely little details in design, really making you feel at home. Helped by some very friendly staff who are very keen to please. The food was incredible value for money.


Bedroom: 6
Sleeping Capacity: 17
Location: Bali

After entering the villa and traversing a pond flanked by a pair of bubbling water features, guests will find themselves in the open-sided living and dining pavilion, with its lofty two-tiered thatched roof and terrazzo floor.  The room is furnished with a dining table for 14, a small table for four, and a sitting area with three sofas grouped around a coffee table.  (A separate building by the entrance houses the gleaming white kitchen where the villa chef whips up wonderful meals).  On one side of the living pavilion is a lounge room, which can convert to create a seventh bedroom (extra charges apply), guest shower room and the master suite whilst on the other is a two-storey building housing three ensuite guest bedrooms and a delightful upper-floor lounge.

Each of these air conditioned bedrooms faces the garden and is fitted with parquet floors and furnished with a king-size bed, oriental rugs, lovingly-collected antiques, classic artwork, colourful antique wall panels, artefacts and local textiles, complemented by fresh flowers galore.  Three of the bathrooms are equipped with oversized circular or sunken terrazzo soaking tubs, all have standing monsoon showers, four extend into the open-air, and all are exceedingly romantic.  The outsides of the buildings are clad with random rock limestone and hand-carved stone murals, and this is a feature that continues within the bathrooms.  The cosy air-conditioned media room offers sofas, a TV/DVD player, a desk and a library of books and movies, and attaches to a bathroom.  Finally, the upstairs lounge enjoys stunning sea views and is furnished with comfortable chairs and a huge daybed set around coffee tables before a TV/DVD player.  This upstairs lounge may also be converted as another extra bedroom at a small fee.

At the river’s edge, a short stroll from the main house, is a private and romantic two-bedroom teak guesthouse with plunge pool.  The king and twin bedrooms here are equally sized and share a bathroom huge circular bathtub and monsoon shower. Sofas in the spacious lounge face a 42-inch TV, DVD player and music system, and on three sides sliding doors open onto a veranda furnished with rattan chairs.  Beyond, is an alfresco dining table for six.

The villa’s garden features smooth rolling lawns dotted with frangipani trees and palms, and a stunning infinity-edge swimming pool bordered by a timber deck furnished with chairs and sun loungers.  A gamelan of three stone musicians rests under a tree, and a thatched pavilion presents a huge, deeply-cushioned daybed.  It is the view, however, that will stop guests in their tracks.  The garden becomes a jungle of pandanas and beach convolvulus as it rolls down to a river, and ahead rises to a buff, immediately beyond which is a rugged surf beach and the Indian Ocean.
