– Welcome to your home in Bali – we heard at the beginning, as we entered our secluded getaway. Our villa was hidden in the jungle.
We arrived after midnight – couldn’t see much, but the atmosphere of luxury was easy to spot even in the dark. Drinks and plates of delicious snacks were served, the speakers were filled with delicate rhythms, but the fatigue quickly took over …
Good that someone turned the lights out.
The rooster and the barking dog woke me up just after sunrise. I opened the curtain and … We had it all to ourselves!
Soon I was sitting in the pool, drinking watermelon juice.
The waiters always came out of nowhere, exactly at the moment at which you wanted them. What more do you want on holidays?
In the afternoon our driver took us on a trip to a little-known temple where only the locals go. For some balance, at sunset, we went to the popular, crowded Tanah Lot Temple.
We had a nice dinner in the evening, back in the Villa, with the mood of melting candles and live music. Two players were sitting in the garden, playing Balinese rhythms.
The next day we were offered a walk in the village of Cepaka and among the rice fields. Within the few hours we only met a couple of tourists – they rode down the street on a scooter. Cepaka is clean and well taken care of, which unfortunately is not always the case in Bali.
Villa Sungai is located in the mountains, in the village of Cepaka, in southwestern Bali. The villa is not too far from the airport, but unfortunately through the traffic jams in Kuta, it takes over an hour. Guests arriving at the airport are picked up by a driver, who may also be available for the duration of their stay.
Villa Sungai is not a typical hotel – it’s a private residence that you can rent out all to yourself and your group of friends, hidden away, among the trees – a perfect location for any special occasion or a quiet holiday with your family.
It consists of three rooms and a common area with a dining room, bar, comfortable lounge’s and a swimming pool – all open air. There is also a small SPA where you can enjoy relaxing massages and beauty treatments. There is no reception or typical lobby. The staff are available 24 hours a day, but appear only when needed – there is a door bell in the dining area that facilitates communication. Next to it is a second, more luxurious facility – Sungai Gold.
Villa Sungai has been awarded many times by Luxury Travel magazine.
There are three rooms in the Villa. All are spacious and bright, designed in modern Balinese style. Large four poster beds add to the luxurious atmosphere. The rooms have air conditioning and thick curtains, making it easy to stay in the tropics.
All bathrooms are located outside. Rooms have showers and the main one also has an outdoor bath. Bathing in plumeria flowers, under the blue sky, is an unforgettable experience!
Staying at Villa Sungai, comes with breakfas and dinner.
The breakfast is served with juicy fruit and good coffee. In addition, you can choose something from the menu – we really enjoyed the banana pancakes. The freshly squeezed juices were also great.
The dinner menu is set before your arrival and consists of several dishes. The food really deserves the five stars – the combination of local flavors with good quality products, equates to some amazing meals. Here we ate the best grilled chicken – it doesn’t sound very special, but it really just tasted amazing!
Villa Sungai is the Bali that everyone dreams of. Beautiful, a great atmosphere with good food. A dream residence with the atmosphere of jungle sounds. It allows you to escape from your daily routine and simply reset. It is an ideal choice for a romantic getaway, a trip with friends or a family vacation.
