Villa Bangkuang in Canggu, Bali
Hidden away under the rustling of palm trees, serenaded by the hypnotic rhythm of the breaking waves, in the traditional Balinese village of Sogsogan, near Seseh, on Bali’s southwest coast, Villa Bangkuang rests within a coconut grove garden, unbroken by borders and fences, just a few hundred meters from a rugged surf beach. Villa Bangkuang offers a unique Bali experience within a luxury home. Gone are the towering walls that bar nature and encroach upon the soul. This grand seaside villa, consisting of two separate pavilions, opens to an unobstructed horizon of ocean, lush rice fields, coconut groves, and mountain views. One slight turn from the trodden path, the breath is captured by these unparalleled vistas.
Villa Bangkuang is comprised of a main two-storey main building, an open-sided lounging and dining pavilion, and a separate two-bedroom guest pavilion. There are four spacious air-conditioned bedrooms at Villa Bangkuang, each with an en-suite bathroom.
The master suite, complete with full-length balcony, covers the whole of the upper floor, overlooking the garden and rice fields stretching infinitely towards the ocean. Characterized by a polished parquet floor and a soaring roof, the romantic bedroom is furnished with a king-size, four-poster bed swathed in snowy netting. Floor-to-ceiling glass windows slide open on three sides, presenting guests with the choice of air-conditioned comfort or a semi-alfresco sleeping experience, cooled by a ceiling fan and lulled by the distant sound of the waves. The room is equipped with a satellite channel TV and DVD player, and the large adjoining dressing area is fitted with wardrobes and storage space.
Downstairs, another spacious bedroom-suite proves to be an ideal space for kids, with a queen-size bed, sofa, TV/DVD, and a play area. Glass doors open into a pebbled courtyard bathroom, fitted with twin washbasins and rain shower, surrounded by tall trees and walls for privacy.
The garden complements the native vegetation behind the pavilions and the dazzling rice fields to the front with a smooth, manicured lawn, where the 17 x 5 meter swimming pool appears to overflow into infinity. Sun loungers and shady umbrellas, together with an indulgent poolside bar, make this a very relaxing area in which to hang out.
It is this abundance of space and natural beauty that makes Villa Bangkuang the perfect venue for weddings and small events; guests can spill out on to the smooth manicured lawns, which are also ideal for barbeques and Balinese cultural performances.
