The Jewel in the Crown
“Two ridiculously private residences that fuse a traditional village experience with five-star trappings to create a bespoke idyll” – Harper’s Bazaar
“Poolside bliss-outs, princess-worthy service, four-poster beds, showers under the stars…Heaven has a new name” says Grazia’s Susie Burge.
Immerse yourself in an island escape where you are cocooned in peace, tranquillity, local style and contemporary sophistication. Positioned just inland on the fashionable west coast near Canggu, Villa Sungai Bali has everything you expect from the finest hotels, with the added bonus of exclusivity. It is Bali’s version of a luxury lodge – intimate and bespoke, tailored to the sophisticated and discerning experiential traveller looking for luxury accommodation with access to local experiences. From its immaculate, elegant interiors to the extraordinary service, this villa is the last word in spoiling and relaxation, taking the 5-star hotel experience to the next level – perfect for couples, families, or friends holidaying together.
Focus on guest experience is paramount, whether it’s being met at the airport by the manager after fast-tracked airport clearance, the signature cocktail from the bar on arrival, the all-day dining with no breakfast cut-off, the particular enjoyment of sharing Bali and its culture with children, or the luxury Swiss Chopard bathroom amenities. Every last detail required for guest comfort has been carefully considered, from the finest bed linen, to the freshly baked biscuits. Enter through the gates of Sungai and immediately leave the real world behind. As guests descend the steps and encounter the villa proper, a feeling of peace and tranquillity begins to gently envelop them.
That very first glimpse of the palest turquoise waters of the standout pool that drops to the river brings further affirmation of the potential that awaits them. Guests are greeted immediately by the uninterrupted jungle views, the infallible (seemingly telepathic) staff, the traditional “alang alang” thatching, pavilions perfumed with tuberoses, palms and frangipanis, khaki and whitewash, and sleek & sexy white on white… at once understated and stunning. And the wonderful sounds of cicadas and farm animals in the background, as you are cosseted in the real Bali.
Here time stands still and the fairytale begins in your private luxury Bali Villa.
