OVERVIEW Villa KANTI
Nestled amidst lush, verdant plantation, surrounded by panoramic views of rice fields and secluded by coconut trees, the Villa KANTI experience immerses you in a soothing world of relaxation and tranquility that will revive and refresh your spirit as you enjoy the mystique of this spiritual land. Far from the bustle of daily Balinese life, Villa KANTI is situated on the edge of a quiet and small traditional Balinese village, located 10 minutes drive south from the centre of Ubud.
From that first moment of entering the Villa KANTI and for the entire duration of your stay, you will be welcomed by the sound of water rippling down the cascades to the bottom of the plantation. Savor this view overlooking the garden from the highest point of the property – it is both magical and unforgettable.
Stroll through the gardens paved with special stepping stones, where water greets you everywhere – tropical ponds with delicate lotus and water lilies, reflecting ponds mirroring coconut and frangipani trees, and still water ponds nurturing goldfish and dragonfish and creating a natural environment for the local flora and fauna. Tropical flowers, shrubs and trees are swept in by the refreshing breeze where you will find a virtual celebration of nature and life. KANTI is the ‘Sanskrit’ word for “light” and the residence is bathed in natural light while protecting the privacy of our residents.
Built in perfect harmony with traditional Balinese architecture and integrating the most contemporary concept of outdoor living, Villa KANTI offers to fulfill the most discerning traveler’s dreams of luxury existence in a tropical country.
Villa KANTI provides a well-balanced blend of air-conditioned comfort and tropical open-air living. With [six –fiveA] pavilions established on 3200 sq meters of land, it comfortably accommodates up to ten guests who would still be able to lose sight of each other within the boundaries of privacy that the pavilions offer. The focal point of the property is the open-air living and dining pavilion, which drops down onto the 20 x 4 meters lap swimming pool filled with salt-treated water. This infinity pool is complemented by a ‘Hammam’ (steam room) and Jacuzzi just beside it. At the lowest reaches of this abode, overlooking more rice fields, a meditation Bale located over a quietly gurgling stream that marks the edge of the property will wait for you for a few moments of seclusion, meditation, relaxation or for a massage session.
For those moments where you might like to remind yourself of ‘civilization’, there is a fully air-conditioned Media & Entertainment room with a spectacularly large screen – 67 inch satellite TV, home theatre with an extensive DVD collection of international movies and music. On the mezzanine level above the open-air living and dining pavilion, a desk provides a PC with internet connection and a printer for your convenience.
All corners of the villa are decorated with a plethora of antiques, crafts and artifacts from the Indonesian islands – Java, Borneo, Sulawesi, Lombok, Sumba, the Moluccas, Irian Jaya and Bali itself. These decorative and contemplative pieces, which have been collected over the years by the villa’s owners, who themselves live in the property when it is unoccupied, further enrich the discreetly cultural yet meditative atmosphere of the house.
During your stay, you will be serviced by ten staff who will offer you the highest level of personal service while providing absolute discretion and privacy. They will be at your service to ensure your stay is one of total relaxation and comfort.
