Villa Puri Bawana, Canggu

Just a five-minute drive from the famed surfing spot Echo beach in Canggu, and designed to blend into the gentle contours of its own working rice terraces, Puri Bawana is a spacious and luxurious classic Bali-style estate. The villa’s open living and dining areas and its five sumptuous bedroom suites are furnished to the highest levels of comfort, while an additional five-berth bunk bedroom makes it a perfect choice for large family groups. With a private chef and villa manager among its large staff, and a 30-metre pool complete with ‘floating’ bale, it is also an idyllic venue for weddings and large events.

Descriptions

Over half of the estate has been retained as working rice fields, so the essence of why we built here in the first place will never be lost. Puri Bawana pays homage to the land upon which it sits by integrating the contours of the rice terraces into its design.  We have even built a relaxation pavilion alongside the meandering tree-lined river that borders the rice fields; never has a massage been so serene.

Our five double bedroom suites are generously spaced to ensure privacy; each exquisitely furnished with king-sized beds (one convertible to twins), high quality comfortable furnishings, semi-outdoor ensuite bathrooms and private sitting areas overlooking the gardens, rice fields and soothing water features.  Having our own kids made the inclusion of a bunkroom an easy decision, and we’re sure your own children will get as much fun out of this room as ours have.  And as well as having their own special ‘dorm’ (conveniently situated next to our big TV lounge equipped with Nintendo Wii ), Puri Bawana’s vast lawns and swimming pool, table tennis, toys, books and games should keep young members of the family occupied for hours.  Meanwhile, adults can relax poolside, socialise in the majestic double-vaulted living pavilion overlooking the rest of the estate, or enjoy a massage either in one of the villa’s many thatched pavilions or in the comfort of their own room.  

Mealtimes are a treat at Puri Bawana’s open-sided dining pavilion raised high above the pool and gardens to offer sublime views, day or night. Our suggestion menu of Indonesian specialties, gourmet delights and western favourites (including a kids menu) makes dining easy, but do talk to the chef if you have any special requests for dishes you can’t find on the menu.

Part of Puri Bawana’s magic is its adaptability: as well as being perfect for families, the villa’s classic architecture, abundant space and romantic rice-field setting, make it one of Bali’s most sought after wedding venues too.

 

VILLA LAYOUT

Luxuriously extending over almost two acres of gardens and rice terraces, a  series of thatched pavilions linked by pergola-covered walkways, flights of stone steps and sun-bleached timber decks make up the Puri Bawana estate.  Guests enter via a charming porte cochère and walk across a pretty water feature into the majestic living pavilion that overlooks the 30-metre swimming pool.  To the left of the pool are the bedroom pavilions; to the right is the dining pavilion and feature kitchen, positioned above the TV room and kids’ bunkroom.  The main kitchen and staff area lies to the rear.

 

BEDROOMS

Master suite

With its broad balcony overlooking the river and rice terraces, Puri Bawana’s huge master suite is a haven of relaxation, complete with a king-size four-poster bed and a TV screen that appears at the touch of a button.  Walk through the dressing area and you’ll find an air-conditioned bathroom fitted with two walk-in rain showers, one inside and one outside, together with a romantic bathtub bordered by tropical plants within a private courtyard garden.

Guest suites

The villa’s four guest-suites are furnished with king-size beds (one of which converts to twins) daybeds, desks and chairs.  Each room is complemented by a dressing and vanity area and private ensuite bathroom.  One of the suites is positioned upstairs with gorgeous views of the rice fields and river, while three are situated on ground level:  two with garden views and one overlooking the villa’s serene fish pond complete with timber deck and cascading waterfall.

Each of the guest suites’ luxurious bathrooms has a rain shower, and three are fitted with alfresco bathtubs.  Two of the bathrooms extend into private courtyard gardens, while one offers the decadent facility of a private deck and soaking tub alongside a beautiful water-garden.  Finally, the upper-floor suite presents a bathtub positioned upon a cool balcony alongside a cushioned daybed.

Kids’ bunkroom

A kids’ bedroom, on the ground floor of the dining pavilion can accommodate up to five children (or four children and a nanny) in a cleverly arranged set of bunk beds.  The bunkroom is adjoined by a shower room and WC.

 

LIVING AREAS

Indoor living

Designed in the style of a traditional Balinese wantilan, or meeting hall, Puri Bawana’s majestic living pavilion and reception area sets the tone for the whole villa.  Open-sided and overlooking the pool, gardens and rice fields, this vast fan-cooled space is furnished with sofas, ottomans, a coffee table and an intricately carved antique Javanese daybed.  The pavilion is linked to the rest of the villa by steps and a covered, colonnaded walkway with black and white chequered tiles.

The open-sided dining pavilion at Puri Bawana offers a truly impressive setting for a social meal around a long 14-seater dining table.  Elevated above the gardens and pool, cooled by natural breezes and ceiling fans, and blessed with glorious views, the dining area is adjoined by a fully equipped feature kitchen where the chef works culinary magic.

Positioned on the ground floor of the dining pavilion, the TV lounge is equipped with a large wall-mounted screen, satellite-channel TV and DVD player complete with surround sound and Nintendo Wii.  This air-conditioned room is elegantly furnished with sofas, a coffee table, two ottomans and a built-in bar.  Glass doors open onto a terrace beside the pool deck.

Outdoor living

Villa Puri Bawana’s splendid 30-metre swimming pool follows the curve of the rice terraces. At one end is an integrated children’s pool, and in the middle is an open-sided ‘bale’ relaxation pavilion, which appears to float on the water and can be reached with dry feet via a series of stepping stones.  The pool is bordered by a stone deck furnished with sun loungers.

Other relaxation areas within the magnificent gardens include a riverside bale bengong or daydreaming pavilion – a comfortably cushioned nest perched high above the ground to catch the gentle breeze – and a massage bale with two massage beds tucked away in a quiet corner of the grounds. Puri Bawana’s wide flat lawn is the perfect setting for a wedding reception, following a ceremony held in a specially designed area among the villa’s rice terraces.
