Villa Jeeva Saba in Gianyar, Bali
Nestled between the Pura Anyar temple and an oceanfront rice paddy encircled by coconut trees, Jeeva Saba Bali Estate boasts a 70-meter stretch of volcanic sand beachfront with spectacular views across the Badung Strait and Indian Ocean to Bali’s Mt. Agung and the Nusa Lembongan and Nusa Penida islands.
Jeeva Saba is set on nearly a hectare of landscaped gardens and provides spacious living and sleeping areas for up to 16 adults in eight large ensuite bedrooms, all with direct ocean views. The estate’s 17 principal rooms include a media room, a game room, a catering kitchen, a massage room and a gym. Many of these rooms can be converted into additional bedrooms. The main living, dining and great rooms open onto a back terrace overlooking the seaside grass lawn, the 25-meter swimming pool and the ocean beyond. The air-conditioned dining room can seat up to 20 comfortably while the more casual air-conditioned great room has a bar and kitchen area for more intimate family gatherings. The beach and poolside open air bale is perfect for relaxing, while a separate open air dining bale with a butler’s pantry is ideal for casual meals and barbecues. For large gatherings, the rectangular seaside grass lawn can easily seat up to 200 guests.
Upon entering the front reception bale through the original Madura ‘Good Fortune ‘ gate, guarded by two traditional antique carved stone Prambanan lions, a broad pebble pathway leads between two large rectangular ‘elephant’ pools to the imposing front entrance with recycled four-meter high doors salvaged from a demolished old Dutch school in Java. The front entrance opens onto an internal courtyard that links the main common rooms with the three main living pavilions. The pavilions, the Tree House, the Beach House, and the Coast House, are designed in an L shape with all pavilions having direct sea, mountain and island views. The infinity pool and two bales are across the main lawn from the Beach House and directly on the beachfront.
The Tree House is the smallest of the pavilions and consists of a large master bedroom suite and a separate studio bedroom suite. Both suites have separate terraces with long relaxing sofas that face the ocean. The suites are large with high wood and bamboo ceilings. Both the master and studio suites have a seating area that can be converted to comfortably sleep two children. The master suite has a large private enclosed courtyard, a semi-outdoor shower and bath, and contains an antique Madura four poster carved bed. Both the master and studio suites have flat screen televisions.
The two story Beach House is at the center of Jeeva Saba and is the largest pavilion in the estate. The two master suite bedrooms are on the upstairs floor of the Beach House with large terraces and daybeds that offer unparalleled views of the ocean, islands and mountains. The views from the master suites in the Beach House may be amongst the most dramatic views in Bali.
The two master suites in the Beach House are identical and flank the interior courtyard. Both suites have high pitched ceilings in the traditional Bali style with a wall of windows that offer views of either the beach or rice paddies. The wood and marble double sink bathrooms have both indoor and outdoor showers and large outdoor bath tubs set on a private terrace. The Beach House suites are furnished in a luxurious, yet simple style that exudes an air of elegance and romance.
The Coast House overlooks the beach, the seaside lawn and infinity pool, and up the coast to Mount Agung and the mountains of East Bali. The rear of the Coast House looks out over rice paddies. The Coast House features four ensuite master bedrooms: two upstairs and two downstairs.
Life at Jeeva Saba revolves around the 25-meter infinity pool, the bales, or the Beach House with its air-conditioned media room, game room, massage room and living and dining rooms. Most living is outdoors with breakfast and lunch in the dining bale and the day spent either on a lounger by the pool, on the beach, or on one of the oversized daybeds in the large relaxing bale. With private terraces off all the ensuite rooms and a large pool and deck area, there are various options for spending time together as a group or in the privacy of a guest’s own personal space.
The gym is equipped with a treadmill, cross trainer and free weights. Massages can be arranged in the single person massage room or on the private terraces.
