Located a world away from the bustle of Kuta and the bar strips of Legian, one Balinese villa property on the outskirts of coastal hotspot Canggu instils the magic of an island undiscovered. Villa Sungai is all about luxury, peace and privacy alongside benchmark service – catering to 1-12 guests at a time.
No detail has been overlooked here, from loaded iPods in the guest rooms and the basket of water bottles sitting by the 18-metre infinity pool, to luxurious bedding, pyramids of laundered towels and daily deliveries of fresh flowers (white, naturally). Guests will also love the remarkable staff-to-guest ratio, formal table settings for all meals (with staff outfitted in captain’s jackets in the evenings serving canapés and cocktails) and the great kids’ menu – not to mention the fact that food is provided at the cost of ingredients and wine at wholesale prices.
The secret to Sungai’s unique concept is the fusion of Balinese hospitality, devotion to guests’ pleasure and five-star services all raised to a level unattainable by major hotel chains.
