About Villa


Imagine five-star resort service – then imagine that service all to yourself in a villa with the amenities of a top hotel – that’s villas Sungai and Sungai Gold. As a base for exploring the island of Bali they are sizzling providing a haven at day’s end. But their exclusivity is not just a matter of location, it’s their genuine desire to create a memorable and special experience, whether it’s for a romantic getaway, catch up for friends, or family reunion.

“They are ultra-luxurious tiny resorts that represent the very height of sophistication with a heavy dose of privacy… “

SUNGAI BALI (1-3 bedrooms); 18m pool; spa room; bar bale; dining/leisure pavilion

We like to think of ourselves as luxury private villas with a difference. There is no reception desk, lobby or bellboys. Sungai and Sungai Gold are designed to create the impression that guests are staying in a private residence. They have been born from a desire to offer the most exceptional hospitality experience for the most discerning travellers. One where the setting inspires, where the design respects and enhances the surroundings, and where there is a genuine care for service, comfort, style, and attention to detail.


The unforgettable memories created by the Sungai experience are intertwined with the magic of the location, exquisite cuisine, flawless service and simple but immaculately appointed guest rooms. The villas are set on the bank of a small river in the tiny village of Cepaka. You’re in the real Bali here. The natural sounds and rhythms remind you that you are in the jungle. The feel of Ubud but with proximity to Canggu and Seminyak. You have the sensation of sailing on the canopy of green which comforts you as you sink into an utterly relaxed state.

Unwind and enjoy – Sungai is committed to offering privacy, care and relaxation to our customers that is beyond compare.


“I think you undersell the food at the villa – we went to some of the best restaurants in Bali – all very good but next time we will only head out for lunches and a couple of nights.”

Rob Molyneux (Melbourne)

“This place is on another level; it’s like eating at a hatted restaurant.”

Melissa Mylchreest, Sydney (Australian House and Garden)

Our Team

Whilst the setting, facilities and the many luxury inclusions are noteworthy, it is the staff that make Sungai truly outstanding. The team is led by the villa manager and supported by Made (pronounced Mah-day), who also acts as your personal concierge who seamlessly alleviates you of planning and logistics. The team has genuine personal and professional service down to an art, and provide the perfect balance of friendliness, care, charm and grace. The service begins the moment you step off the plane with the VIP airport butler service and the chauffeured transfers that whisk you to the villa where the chefs and staff are dedicated to you alone. We aim to offer a guest experience that is intimate and discreet while providing the highest level of service, exceptional but not intrusive or invasive.
