Villa Luwih in Melayang, Bali
Awang Awang means “floating in the space between heaven and earth” – the perfect description for our villas, perched dramatically on the edge of a deep ravine with breathtaking views of the sacred Petanu River and the lush tropical forests that clad its banks.
Villa Awang Awang can be rented in conjunction with the two bed-room Villa Beji, the two bedroom Villa Melah, the one bedroom Villa Luwih and the one bed-room eco-friendly Villa Pererepan. You therefore have the choice of anything between a one-bedroom to twelve bedroom renting option, with accommodation for up to 16 guests. Up to 4 more guests can be accommodated using extra beds. This peaceful retreat is ideal for those in search of culture, nature, relaxation and inspiration, combined with personalized service. Here, you will be surrounded by most of the features that draw people to this unique and beautiful island.
Built in 2005 by Balinese architect Ir. Ida Bagus Wiadnyana, the style is calming and under-stated, ensuring that nothing detracts from the extraordinary view. The restful decor comprises unique pieces of antique furniture from Bali, Java and Lombok, local artwork, traditional weavings, carvings, statues and antique shadow puppets. Integrated into the natural contours of the steep-sided river gorge, the house is cooled by ceiling fans and cross breezes from the river. The three-storey building is entered on the top floor.
Villa Awang Awang is situated in the traditional village of Melayang overlooking the verdant Petanu river valley five kilometres east of Ubud. The 10-minute drive from Ubud will transport you through a stunning landscape of rice terraces and jungle with Bali’s sacred volcano, Gunung Agung, towering in the distance. The villa is just over one hour’s drive from the international airport.
Staff will prepare your complimentary breakfast at a time to suit you. Other meals and drinks can be ordered from our villa menu. Staff only need 2 hours notice if you require a meal in order to purchase fresh food items from the market. Our trained chefs can prepare most Asian and Western dishes, including vegetarian. As far as possible, organic ingredients are harvested from our own garden. All special meal requests can be accommodated.
The open plan home features a king size 4 poster bed, bed-side tables and a kitchen bench crafted from recycled teak wood, armchairs and a dining setting are genuine antiques sourced in Java. Modern touches include a fridge, tea and coffee making facilities, flat screen television and free wireless internet. It is usually cool enough at night to need a blanket and most guests prefer to have doors open to catch the cool breeze and hear the tropical night sounds but there is an air conditioner if needed.
The semi-outdoor bathroom features a copper hand basin set in an old teak door. The bathroom shutters can be opened to enjoy the valley views while soaking in the beautiful oval shaped black terrazzo bath. A brass rain shower is situated on the lava stone wall above the bath.
The 3×1.5 m plunge pool has an infinity edge and amazing views down the lush valley to the sacred Petanu River. Alongside is a sun deck, one of our house temples and a river stone statue of Dewi Sri, the rice Goddess.
Our five villas are supported by a cherished ‘family’ of 18 friendly staff, who have a profound knowledge of the locale, and fulfil their duties with enthusiasm, smiles and genuine warmth. They are never intrusive, yet are always there to make sure that their guests experience a truly enjoyable stay in Bali. Our on-site villa manager oversees and coordinates the staff and property and assists you during your stay. He is on call 24 hours a day. All of the staff are from the village of Melayang. Staff are working from 7am -11pm. Our village is very safe but for your extra peace of mind we have a night security guard on duty from 11pm – 7am.
