The Arsana Estate, Tabanan
This splendid four-bedroom villa occupies a gorgeous two-hectare estate which flows down a terraced hillside in the rural hinterland of southwest Bali. The Arsana Estate provides the perfect setting for weddings, events and spiritual retreats, or quite simply for families or groups looking for a close-to-nature playground in which to relax away from the hustle and bustle of Bali’s more crowded tourist centres. At this very self-contained villa there is no real need to venture out at all, but a visit to the nearby village – one of the prettiest in Bali – or a bicycle ride along the tiny roads, past farmers tending their rice fields, should not be missed.
The Arsana Estate blends its exceptional location with outstanding facilities, including swimming pools, a games room, home theatre, fully stocked bars and dedicated massage areas. These are complemented by top levels of service from an exceptional team of staff headed by a knowledgeable villa manager and including an experienced, talented chef.
Arsana means ‘flow’ in Sanskrit, and not only does the villa’s name aptly describe the Sungi River that meanders past its lower boundary, but also the way The Arsana Estate’s individual bedroom and living pavilions cascade down the hillside into a valley of birdsong. Scores of eye-catching butterfly and bird species, including kingfishers, flit through the expansive terraced gardens and trees throughout the day, while the cicadas and frogs take over the nightshift with their chirping melodies and bass notes. Indeed, water features large at The Arsana Estate, where ponds, water walls, waterfalls, and an 18 x 8-metre swimming pool with a separate children’s section will refresh, relax and delight villa guests.
The villa’s sleek modern structures, with their ironwood shingle roofs and abundance of glass, reflect the ambiance of the location and the purity of the natural surroundings, while the interiors are characterised with a bold use of colour and super-comfortable furnishings. A fully stocked bar with red lanterns and matching cushioned bar stools is an obvious focal point, as is the home theatre and games room complete with a pool table. Valuable and renowned artworks line much of what solid wall space there is, while the front facade of the living pavilion is an abstract notion of floor-to-ceiling glass doors and windows that remain open to the elements. The villa’s four double bedroom suites (all contain annexes suitable for children), each housed in its own private stand-alone pavilion, are spread leisurely across the terraces of the estate.
Fully outfitted for families, with a profusion of kids’ toys, plus games and activities for adults too! This stunning sanctuary with its team of personal butlers, housekeepers and chefs, offers guests nothing but pleasure and relaxation.
The contemporary Bali style architecture at The Arsana Estate incorporates Feng Shui, spiritual, symbolic and Western spacial elements, as well as bold colour-themed interior design aesthetics, surrounded by the ever-present embrace of the jungle and river. Approached via an enchanting courtyard, an avenue of palms and a dramatic, four-metre-wide stairway, the main U-shaped pavilion presides over the gardens and swimming pool. Here, a grand entrance hall is flanked by two wings with an open-air terrace in-between. One wing comprises a living area, bar and TV room, and the other presents a dining room, feature kitchen and a games room. The living and dining spaces are wrapped in glass doors and windows that can be opened up for a semi-alfresco experience. The swimming pool, pool lounge and massage rooms are positioned on a lower level and linked by a waterfall from the terrace above. The four bedrooms are leisurely spread throughout the grounds, housed in stand-alone pavilions.
The three guest suites are furnished with king-size beds, one of which can be converted into twins. Each suite is housed within a self-contained pavilion with windows on two sides that open to the view, and a covered terrace at the front furnished with armchairs. Each suite follows a cheery colour theme in blue, green, or red – with soft furnishings and high quality artwork in coordinating hues.
The Orange Room, with its own bathroom, is attached to the red guest suite. It also has twin beds which can be combined to create a king. This room also has three sets of bunk beds, making it suitable for up to 6 children in total, or a large family.
All suites are equipped with cable TVs and DVD players and incorporate huge daybeds set within a window recess. Positioned between the sleeping area and the bathroom of each suite is a dressing room with twin wash basins, large wall mirrors, storage and hanging space. Each cream terrazzo ensuite is identical to the master bathroom in configuration and outlook.
Living room and bar
The living area overlooks the pool from the upper level of the main pavilion. Glass doors open out onto a terrace and a big red sofa provides an abundance of comfortable seating around a coffee table. Adjacent to the living area is a well-stocked cocktail bar stylishly crafted in black granite and ideal for parties and other special events. The bar is complemented by six red bar stools, red lanterns and ceiling-mounted speakers.
A self-contained home theatre is situated in the same wing as the living area. This cozy-yet-spacious air-conditioned room is wired for surround-sound and fully equipped with a 60-inch satellite-channel TV, a DVD player with a good selection of movies for both adults and children and Wii. Presenting an olive green colour scheme, this delightful family room is furnished with a segmented sofa and beanbags.
Dining room and breakfast pergola
The dining area is situated opposite the living area and bar in the main pavilion. Here, a glass-topped table for 12 is flanked by royal-blue-cushioned dining chairs. Adjacent, but outdoors, is a breakfast area with a terracotta tiled floor sheltered by a pergola roof dripping in white-flowering thunbergia. Furnished with a table for ten, this is a great spot to start the day.
Fashioned in terrazzo and stainless steel, The Arsana’s feature kitchen presents wall units in a chic shade of French navy and a four-burner hob. A fully equipped service kitchen is located behind here, out of sight. The kitchen’s L-shaped bar counter serves as an alternative venue for breakfast and seats eight guests on funky white stools.
The air-conditioned, self-contained games room is characterised by a blue décor, and equipped with a pool table and a cupboard full of board games. Two big blue armchairs and some high stools are positioned next to a bar-shelf and a large wall mirror. A guest washroom is conveniently situated off this room.
