Detailed description; Designed to maximise the natural light, and catch the cool breezes, Villa River View Canggu is a peaceful 3-bedroom villa, with swimming pool, in a quiet traditional village above a small river valley. The single-storey villa is neo-colonial in style, similar to the Dutch guesthouses of the Javanese and Malay hill stations, the property offers a blend of air-conditioned comfort and open-air tropical living. Its elevated position, meanwhile, affords beautiful open views over the pool to a jungle canopy against a backdrop of rice terraces.

Unlike many villas in Bali, where the kitchen is tucked away at the back of the property, the large and immaculate open kitchen at Villa River View Canggu is situated on one side of the lotus pond. The kitchen is fully equipped with a sizeable refrigerator, an oven with a large gas hob, and everything else that the staff will need to create delicious meals. To one side of the kitchen, overlooking the lotus pond is a breakfast area. The marble-topped breakfast table is flanked by six chairs with brightly coloured yellow green and orange cushions.

Bordering the lotus pond is a cosy media room, furnished with an oversized sofa. The room is built around four recycled timber pillars that support the roof. Folding doors open directly on to the lotus pond, so that the pavilion appears to float. The Media room is equipped with a TV together with DVD/CD players, and dial-up Internet access. A small laptop computer has been installed for those who would rather not bring their own. The high quality sound system is linked to speakers all around the villa. There is a connection to the amp for those who want to listen to music stored on their personal iPods or laptops.

The central focus of the villa is an expansive living and dining area with folding doors on either side that open wide to allow the cool breezes to circulate. The hall is furnished with a formal teak dining table that comfortably seats ten. Folding doors composed of wood and glass open onto a sunny Batu Yogya stone terrace, which doubles the living space of the hall making it a perfect venue for parties.

The Bali Room is furnished with a super-king-size four-poster bed, features polished teak floors and French windows with louvre shutters, which open out onto the terrace and balcony. This room can also be used for nursery, and a cot can be provided. Another colonial style door leads into the expansive cream-coloured terrazzo bathroom, featuring ‘his and hers’ washbasins resting upon a terrazzo vanity unit. A glass skylight in the roof allows the sunlight to stream in above a sunken sculptured terrazzo bathtub, which is big enough for two.

On the opposite side of the terrace, double doors open into the Colonial Room, and a super-king-size four-poster bed. The en-suite bathroom is L-shaped; fixtures and furnishings include an oversized sunken sculptured terrazzo bathtub.The bathroom has an open air feel, due to the provision of glass windows in the roof, maximising the natural light.

The Bamboo Room can be set up with two beds for younger guests or as double room. The en-suite cream terrazzo bathroom features twin washbasins, a toilet hidden within an alcove, ceiling fans, and a rainshower with a handheld shower.

The beautiful garden then rolls down to a river located behind its boundary walls. The garden is dotted with sweet-scented frangipani and orchids, and bordered by mature trees including teak, coconut palms, and a towering breadfruit tree. On either side of the garden is a banana, palm and pandanus plantation.

The 18-metre mango-shaped swimming pool is 1.5 metres deep with a large platform area just 15 centimetres deep for kids. The cobalt-blue tiled pool is filled with light salt water instead of chlorine, and is equipped with an innovative filtering system utilising pure water from the villa’s own bore.

At the bottom of the garden is a rustic brick wall with a door opening onto the river bank; here guests will find a simple and private riverside bale, perfect for meditation. This is also the site of a holy spring, where offerings to the gods are made by the local villagers. Eighty metres along the river-bank is the village temple. Guests will be welcomed at temple festivals, some may even be lucky enough to witness a barong dance or other Hindu ceremony. The villa staff will be happy to help with ceremonial clothing and advice on etiquette.
