With a tranquil setting amidst the traditional rice fields of rural Canggu, this breathtaking villa is within easy walking distance of the famous surf spot, Echo Beach. Balinese-inspired architecture and design reflect an oasis of peace and harmony, as well as a deep respect for the natural environment, with the use of reclaimed wood and local stone throughout. A truly unique property with a 16-metre swimming pool, three bedrooms and ample private and communal areas, Villa Levi stands out for its home-away-from-home feel, providing a luxurious hideaway for small groups and families.
About Villa Levi
Rising from the banks of a small river shaded by a towering banyan tree, this peaceful villa is blessed with an abundance of tropical flora and immaculate lawns. Partly designed by Alberto Cortes and Yvonne Hulst, the designers responsible for The Purist in Ubud, The Giri Residence in Ibiza and Ryad Dyor in Marrakech, Villa Levi combines contemporary design with eclectic Indonesian antiques and a sublime back-to-nature setting.
While the ambiance is intimate, the expansive rice fields that surround the villa create a wonderful sense of space. The use of recycled timber and local stone throughout – from ironwood decking, to stone tables and marble bathtubs – creates wonderful texture and earthy tones; a perfect reflection of the natural setting.
The villa’s three uniquely styled bedroom suites are ideal for small groups, families, solo travellers or honeymooners. Groups will enjoy the open-plan lounge and alfresco dining terraces – supported by fabulous gourmet kitchen facilities and a suggestion menu – and the pool deck with a collection of oversize sun beds and rustic table settings. Then again, if me-time is on the agenda, you can slip away into the luxurious spa treatment area, soak in the jacuzzi, or curl up with a book on a giant sofa and leave the world behind. Not sure how to spend your days? Ask the helpful villa staff for inspiration. It’s just a short stroll to Echo Beach, or head to Seminyak, with its chic restaurants, designer boutiques and buzzing nightlife.
Few people are as naturally gracious and welcoming as the Balinese and it is the warmth of their genuine and seemingly endless smiles that you will remember long after your holiday is over.
A series of pavilions are clustered in a rectangular shape around a sunken lawn and 16-metre swimming pool, with living, dining and kitchen areas at one end, pool deck at the other, and bedroom pavilions either side. Stairs from the pool deck lead down to a terrace and spa and gym room. Another set of stairs lead up from the pool deck to a private rooftop terrace.
Stepping-stones over a pond lead past a long Palimanan frieze and into the open-plan living, dining and kitchen areas that overlook the whole property and the rice fields beyond. A large comfortable sofa and coffee table are set in one corner, and a stone-topped table seats six. The island-style guest kitchen and wet bar is equipped with a hob, fridge and espresso machine, and bar stools at the counter make a great place for enjoying a cocktail or a bottle of wine, while an iPod and dock provide entertainment.
The dining wing is dominated by a massive table carved from a single tree trunk, accompanied by eight plump-cushioned chairs. Stone shelving lines one of the walls with an evocative collection of earthenware pots and ethnic curios.
Casual lounge areas throughout the villa make comfortable corners to congregate or peaceful havens for solitude. The pool deck is furnished with three double sun loungers shaded by graceful parasols, and two long tables overlooking the river are perfect for alfresco meals. Meanwhile, in the poolside bale, soft cushions create a tempting spot for a siesta.
Stairs lead up to a charming rooftop terrace suitable for morning yoga or moments of quiet reflection, and down to a riverfront deck shaded by giant trees and furnished with huge stone pots filled with ornamental palms. To the rear of the deck, the spa – a soothing space with two massage beds – is adjoined by an air-conditioned gym.
Villa Levi’s three generous air-conditioned bedrooms are all equipped with satellite TV/DVD players, mini bars, customised amenites and ample storage space. Each is decorated with eclectic artwork and artefacts. Deluxe beds are covered in Egyptian cotton linens, and set under four-poster canopies draped with sheer netting.
The master suite, which is slightly larger than the other rooms, is furnished with a king-size bed and a large sofa. The luxurious covered garden bathroom is fringed with greenery, and fitted with double rain showers overlooking the river. A wooden path way flanked by fish ponds leads to the enchanting outdoor jacuzzi.
Pool View I
This spacious room is furnished with a king-size bed, sofa and antique display cabinet. In the pastel green bathroom the rain shower is surrounded by a veranda with an outdoor marble bathtub tucked in one corner. The walk-in dressing room overlooks the trees and is big enough to be used as an additional bedroom.
Pool View II
In this second guest room, twin beds adorned in traditional ikat textiles can be converted to a king. Glass doors open onto the garden, and the indoor bathroom is fitted with a tub, walk-in dressing room, rain shower and additional courtyard shower.
Barbecue; safety deposit boxes.
Villa Levi sits on a river island 200m down a long driveway, with only forest, fields, local houses and other private villas nearby, with a revered temple positioned on the opposite side of the river. Out on the main road are a couple of local shops selling basic grocery items and snacks, while less than two kilometres away is Echo Beach, with great surf and an enclave of cheap and cheerful but good quality seaside restaurants. A huge new apartment development will be opening soon at Echo Beach and will no doubt bring more great restaurants and retail outlets to the area.
