Villa Arsana Estate 5
Set in a beautiful rural area of rice fields and jungle-clad river valleys in Tabanan, this splendid five-bedroom villa occupies an expansive two hectare estate flowing down a terraced hillside in south-west Bali, within pristine Balinese gardens.
The Arsana Estate offers the perfect setting for large family and group retreats as it blends an exceptional location with outstanding facilities and an exceptional team of villa staff.
The Arsana Estate is a completely self-contained villa, giving guests no real need to venture out at all, but a visit to the nearby village – one of the prettiest in Bali – and experience a true example of Balinese community and village life should not be missed.
The very name of the villa describes its thoughtful layout. Arsana means ‘flow’ in Sanskrit, and not only does the villa’s name aptly describe the way The Arsana Estate’s individual bedroom and living pavilions cascade down the hillside into the nearby valley, but also the Sungi River that meanders past its lower boundary. Water features abound at The Arsana Estate, where ponds, water walls, waterfalls, and an 19m x 7m swimming pool with a separate children’s section will refresh, relax and delight villa guests. The villa also has its own tennis court and a very large green space for children.
The villa’s sleek modern structures, with their ironwood shingle roofs and abundance of glass, reflect the ambiance of the location and the purity of the natural surroundings, while the interiors are characterised with a bold use of colour and luxurious furnishings. Presenting many different options for large groups to dine or entertain, the villa also has a cinema room as well as a games room, complete with a pool table. Unique artwork adorns what solid wall space there is, while the front facade of the living pavilion is an abstract notion of floor-to-ceiling glass doors and windows that remain open to the elements.
The villa’s five bedroom suites, housed in three stand-alone pavilions, include a spectacular multi-roomed master pavilion and an eight-bedded children’s slumber room, spread leisurely across the terraces of the estate. Fully outfitted for families, each room has a separate daybed area suitable to sleep children. with an abundance of children’s toys, plus games and activities for adults too, this stunning sanctuary with its team of personal butlers, housekeepers and chefs, offers guests nothing but pleasure and relaxation.
The Arsana Estate occupies two hectares of glorious terraced hillside gardens bordered by a jungle-clad river in the quiet traditional village of Nyambu in the Tabanan Regency of Southwest Bali. Known as Bali’s ‘rice bowl’, this fertile area features rice fields unfurling to the horizon, where farmers follow the rhythms of their forefathers and our guests can witness village life little changed in generations. Bali’s iconic Tanah Lot sea temple and famed surfing beaches are just over 10 kilometres away, Canggu’s hip bars and cafés about the same distance, and the restaurants and boutiques of Seminyak around half an hour’s drive to the east.
