East Residence in Canggu, Bali
East Residence extends a heartfelt Balinese welcome. Nestled amongst the emerald rice fields of Canggu, the five-bedroom tropical sanctuary was built as a home away from home for Spring World and East Day Spa founder Ina Bajaj. Offering all the comforts of home, this tranquil haven has been lovingly decorated in a contemporary style, infused with traditional Balinese touches.
The one acre of landscaped grounds reflect the owner’s passion for gardening, and feature an exquisite 20 metre infinity-edge pool, rice fields, open-air lounge pavilion and thatched bales, evoking a sense of peace and serenity that will leave you feeling relaxed and rejuvenated.
Within the solid western architectural design, interiors are of the highest quality and abundant use is made of natural materials such as mahogany and granite. With an eye for traditional culture, the villa is tastefully adorned with exquisite Indonesian artworks, décor and antique pieces: framed antique Sulawesi warrior jackets line the corridors and carved Balinese chaise longue are thoughtfully provided on porches.
All five ensuite bedrooms feature generous-sized balconies to savour Canggu’s rice fields and villa gardens, while the detached Rainforest Cottage boasts a jungle-style, outdoor bathroom. The strikingly designed infinity-edge pool offers another glorious spot for leisurely distractions. Beyond the pool the beautifully landscaped gardens, dissected by a stream, slope down to a calming river and the soothing sounds of a waterfall. Step by step, through manicured lawns, trees and exotic blooms, the terraced gardens reveal a Balinese open-air lounge pavilion, three thatched balés (traditional gazebos) and a private spa for the exclusive use of guests.
The four bedrooms in the main building, including the master bedroom, are equally spaced off the first floor landing, affording some privacy. A fifth bedroom rests separately in Rainforest Cottage. Bedrooms feature parquet flooring, air conditioning (no ceiling fans), king-sized beds and fine white cotton bedding. Bathrooms are contemporary and stylish, with glass cubicle showers, while the furniture is high quality with modern Indonesian influences. Delightful traditional touches include high bamboo-and grass-roofed ceilings, bathroom amenities stored in Balinese offerings boxes and Indonesian art works adorning the walls. In total, the villa sleeps ten adult guests, but provides a baby cot (foldable) and 2 extra beds (at additional charge).
