Villa East Residence
With its lovely outdoor relaxation areas, Zen-infused gardens and own private spa, this residence offers guests a rejuvenating sanctuary, yet is only a short drive away from some of the island’s finest surfing beaches and most cosmopolitan enclave, Seminyak.
About East Residence
Passion, care and meticulous attention to detail have all been poured into the five-bedroom East Residence and Spa.
Within the solid western architectural design, interiors are of the highest quality and abundant use is made of natural materials such as mahogany and granite. With an eye for traditional culture, the villa is tastefully adorned with exquisite Indonesian artworks, décor and antique pieces: framed antique Sulawesi warrior jackets line the corridors and carved Balinese chaise longue are thoughtfully provided on porches.
Frangipani flower greetings and a traditional floral and bamboo welcome placed on each bed are some of the Balinese rituals respectfully observed. The owner’s love of global travel is also evident with Buddhist statues dotting the gardens and antique carved African chairs.
The two acre property offers a great sense of spaciousness and sanctuary. Reflecting the tropical lifestyle, la piece de la resistance is a variety of outdoor areas to peacefully rest and relax.
All five ensuite bedrooms feature generous-sized balconies to savour Canggu’s rice fields and villa gardens, while the detached Rainforest Cottage boasts a jungle-style, outdoor bathroom. The strikingly designed infinity-edge pool offers another glorious spot for leisurely distractions.
Beyond the pool the beautifully landscaped gardens, dissected by a stream, slope down to a calming river and the soothing sounds of a waterfall. Step by step, through manicured lawns, trees and exotic blooms, the terraced gardens reveal a Balinese open-air lounge pavilion, three thatched balés (traditional gazebos) and a private spa for the exclusive use of guests.
Built in 2008 and now available for rental, this cherished family home extends a heartfelt Balinese welcome. The team of local staff, ever-friendly but discreetly present, are the icing on the cake of this truly magnificent property.
The four bedrooms in the main building, including the master bedroom, are equally spaced off the first floor landing, affording some privacy. A fifth bedroom rests separately in Rainforest Cottage. Bedrooms feature parquet flooring, air conditioning (no ceiling fans), king-sized beds and fine white cotton bedding. Bathrooms are contemporary and stylish, with glass cubicle showers, while the furniture is high quality with modern Indonesian influences. Delightful traditional touches include high bamboo-and grass-roofed ceilings, bathroom amenities stored in Balinese offerings boxes and Indonesian art works adorning the walls. In total, the villa sleeps ten adult guests, but provides a baby cot (foldable) and 2 extra beds (at additional charge).
First-floor master bedroom
The largest of the first floor bedrooms, the master bedroom boasts a generous-sized bathroom with sunken bathtub and his and hers sinks. Additionally, the expansive floor space allows room for couches and an ottoman. A 52-inch plasma TV is provided for DVD viewing.
This lovely one-bedroom lodge, resting below the pool and beside the diminutive River Subak, makes for a wonderfully romantic bolt-hole. Surrounded by natural foliage, the entrance porch features an antique African chaise longue, while a second porch, facing the rainforest, supplies table and chairs. A 39-inch plasma TV is available for DVD viewing (with DVDs provided). Open to the elements, the tropical-style bathroom features a stand-alone bathtub, glass cubicle shower, sink and toilet and takes in rainforest views and waterfall sounds. Modesty prevails with a curtain of banana plants and concertina-style, opaque panelling.
Living, Dining and Kitchen
hrough the villa’s main entrance, comprising traditional-style, hand crafted wood doors, the living-dining room is an expansive area offering contemporary style yet informality and comfort. Encircled by glass doors and sheer white curtains, this open-plan room lets in plenty of natural light, while the central sofa section is the perfect vantage point for the infinity-edge pool just outside. Ceiling fans and breezes through open doors allow a pleasant airiness. Like elsewhere, furniture and furnishings are contemporary Indonesian, with high-quality finishing, while traditional local touches include charming hand-carved Balinese statuettes.
On the right-hand side is a large antique wooden dining table (protected by a glass top) seating ten. The generous-sized open-plan guest (dry) kitchen, just behind, is bordered by a raised counter of solid Borneo wood and within, features granite counter tops. Well-equipped and well-stocked, the kitchen boasts an Italian oven, five-ring cooker (electricity and gas) and large refrigerator. Behind a partition is the staff (wet) kitchen and walk-in pantry, plus a discreetly positioned guest washroom.
Pool side dining is available on a ten seater teak table.
To the right of the gardens, almost submerged in a rain forest setting and near a scenic waterfall, rests ‘Open Living’ – the Balinese open-air lounge pavilion. Traditional touches include a rustic-style high ceiling, with bamboo blinds offering protection from the elements. This makes a gloriously peaceful spot for afternoon teas and sundowners as daylight fades through the trees. Seating includes sofas and a dining table accommodating eight. Adjoining here is a small kitchen plus an attached guest washroom; open-air, it comes discreetly framed by bamboo blinds.
‘Open Living’ is ideal for informal gatherings, lunches and receptions; a simple barbecue is on-hand and a sound system runs to here and to the spa next door.
The property’s lower grounds are bordered by a river, waterfall and jungle foliage with a steep embankment opposite. Fenced off, the river marks the property border; ask the gardener to open the gate for riverbank explorations. Beyond this and encircling the villa, it’s a picturesque scene of rice fields, grazing cattle and farmed lands dotted with local buildings and, increasingly, foreign-built villas. On a clear day, from bedrooms one and two, you can see Gunung (Mount) Agung, an active volcano and, at 3,142m, Bali’s highest peak.
Surrounded by rice fields and charming agricultural scenery, East Residence is tucked in the quaint village of Tumbak Bayuh, Canggu.
The immediate vicinity comprises mainly local community schools, temples, small restaurants and shops, yet Bali’s premier sports and social club, the Canggu Club, is just five kilometres away, with international-standard dining and leisure amenities. A string of wildly beautiful beaches renowned for their surf are within a ten minute drive of the villa, including the legendary Echo Beach.
