Sungai Tinggi Beach Villa – Luxury Villa in Canggu
The beautiful traditionally styled Villa rests on the shores of a pristine black-sand beach in the peaceful rural village of Pererenan, on Bali’s southwest coast, within easy reach of Seminyak, Tanah Lot and Echo Beach. Sungai Tinggi Beach Villa sits on the banks of a small lagoon in Canggu, where the river meets the sea, with over 100 metres of absolute beach frontage overlooking one of Bali’s famed surf breaks, it delivers spectacular ocean views from almost every room.
Sungai Tinggi Beach Villa is fully staffed six-bedroom villa, with skilled chef, friendly manager and complimentary car and driver, comprises a four-bedroom main house (which can be rented on its own) and a delightful two-bedroom guesthouse set in a quiet corner of the grounds with its own plunge pool. A lounge in the main house can be converted to a seventh bedroom on request. Luxurious living space includes a charming thatched pavilion facing an 18-metre pool. The garden, bursting with fragrant frangipanis, swaying coconut palms and luscious green foliage, is a stunning private oasis, and amidst its tropical expanse lies the villa’s dedicated events space – a coconut grove directly connected to the beach via a pretty timber walkway, which makes an unforgettable setting for nuptial vows.
Sungai Tinggi Beach Villa friendly staffs, many of whom reside in the local village, have a strong attachment to the villa and clearly love taking care of its guests. Families and groups of friends will find the villa abundantly spacious and the secluded two-bedroom guesthouse with private plunge pool attractive as an alternate venue to sleep, relax and unwind. Play a match on the tennis court, enjoy a massage, admire the sunset from the balcony or converge on the imposing living pavilion – you’re simply spoilt for choice.
Bedroom at Sungai Tinggi Beach Villa
Sungai Tinggi Beach Villa’s master suite is spectacular. Here, an exquisite collection of antiques and artefacts vie for attention with the ocean view beyond the private terrace. From behind the four-poster king-size bed, a Buddha statue casts its protective eyes over sleeping guests, while armchairs around a small round table provide a cosy spot for morning coffee. Hidden behind traditional carved doors is a dressing area. Equally impressive in size and décor is the garden bathroom, with open-air shower, twin washbasins and a circular terrazzo bathtub for two.
Main house guest bedrooms
Three guest bedrooms in the main house feature whitewashed four-poster king-size beds (two are convertible to twins), draped in mosquito netting and dressed with crisp white linen and batik cushions that contrast nicely against the Bengkirai wood floor. The two downstairs rooms open onto the garden, while the upstairs bedroom opens onto a balcony shared with an adjacent lounge and panoramic ocean views. Each comes with air conditioning and ceiling fans. All three ensuite bathrooms are individually designed – one has a sunken terrazzo tub, another an alfresco shower, and the upstairs bathroom a shower looking out over rice-fields.
The very private guesthouse at Sungai Tinggi Beach Villa has two bedrooms: a river-view master bedroom with a king-size bed, and a same-size twin-bedded room (can also be set up as king) looking onto the coconut grove. These romantic teakwood-panelled retreats feature antique armoires and distinctive Indonesian furniture, decorative Madura panels and black-and-white prints of 1930s Bali. Both offer air conditioning and overhead fans. These rooms share a bathroom fitted with a huge circular bathtub, monsoon shower and granite washbasin.
Living Spaces at Sungai Tinggi Beach Villa
The huge thatched wantilan-style living and dining pavilion is Sungai Tinggi Beach Villa’s social hub. Cooled by ceiling fans and sea breezes, this open-sided building accords guests spectacular views across the garden towards the ocean from a variety of seating areas set on cream terrazzo floors under a soaring two-tiered roof. Huge sofas provide comfortable space for lounging. A magnificent suar wood table seats 14 for formal dining, while a smaller breakfast table provides a more intimate space for four and the coconut-shell bar is the perfect setting for sundowners and cookery demonstrations. From the living pavilion a covered boardwalk leads to the villa’s kitchen – well equipped and beautifully decorated with a design palette of cream terrazzo and lime-washed teak.
Incorporated within the master bedroom pavilion is a handsomely furnished lounge equipped with a TV artfully concealed in an antique Indonesian cabinet. The second-floor lounge in the guest bedroom pavilion is blessed with panoramic ocean views.m Its wide windows can be flung open to catch the sea breeze or closed for air conditioned comfort, while rattan chairs and a huge daybed make this a comfortable retreat at any time of the day. The spacious guesthouse living room provides comfortable seating facing a 42-inch TV, DVD player and music system. A two-seater bistro table makes an alternative breakfast venue for shy couples. Three walls of sliding glass doors open onto the guesthouse veranda and its uninterrupted beach, river and garden views. The veranda is furnished with rattan chairs, and extends to a delightful rivers-edge dining area with table for six.
Sungai Tinggi Beach Villa’s owners have lavished much love and attention into creating the villa’s lush landscaped gardens; fishponds with bubbling water features, fragrant frangipanis and tropical coconut palms all mix harmoniously with the surrounding natural environment. From the living pavilion, manicured lawns of Japanese grass roll towards the beach, and the natural green-stone pool is perfect for refreshing dips. Sun seekers will enjoy lounging on the poolside deck and the garden balé is just the spot for sea-breeze-cooled siestas. As night falls, drinks and supper can be served at the poolside dining table under a canopy of stars. Over in the guesthouse, a bamboo lounger, double sunbed and parasol are set before a plunge pool with seating and jacuzzi jets. In the villa’s private coconut grove is a large event balé with guest washrooms, purpose-built to facilitate weddings and celebrations for up to 200 guests. From the coconut grove a raised timber walkway meanders to the beach.
