Nestled where two fresh-water rivers run into the Lembok Straights of the Indian Ocean, Villa Jasi was selected as Architectural digest's lead feature in the 'Exotic Homes Edition' in August 2009 for its unique design, luxurious appointments and magnificent setting. Designed by Linda Garland, built by a team of Sumatran master carpenters, the owners spared no expense in making the home environmentally friendly( built with all re-cycled wood) and seamlessly integrated into the natural setting.
In front lies the ocean and behind towers Bali's main 12,000 foot volcano, Mt. Agung, the 'sacred mother of Bali.' To the north over the terraced rice fields is the Seraya mountain range whose cooling breezes blow in most nights. Thus the property is a 360 degree experience.
The villa is at the ocean's edge with 2500 square foot long house which serves as the living room/dining room house for the villas.
Villa Jasi is a smaller long house in the Sumatran style with a king-sized bed and full bathroom.
The villa come with the friendly staff of ten people: two cooks, three house caretakers, three gardners and two night security men there all day to meet your every need, including laundry for additional charge, cleaning, and providing a delicious breakfast a day provided in the price of the villa. Lunch and dinner can be arranged for an additional amount. They are all smiles and will climb the many cocoanut trees to give you some 'ayer kalapa muda,' young cocoanut milk, or fresh-sqeezed orange juice, Bintang beer or sodas all day.
There are surf breaks nearby and surf guides can be arranged by the staff and are recommended to insure happy integration into the line-up. The local break, Pura Delam, can generate waves from two-feet to double overhead depending on the season and the swells. You can see the break from the living room/dining room house to tell what the swell is doing. It's a five minute drive away.
There is snorkeling right out front for lobster and sea life observation and excellent diving all over the area including wreck diving in nearby Tabanan. Bali is a haven for all water sports.
Facials and massages can be had at the villas with notices to the staff and are highly recommended and inexpensive. Also, recommended is to hire a car and driver by the week so that your freedom of movement is assured. It is NOT recommended to drive in Bali as the traffic behavior is quite wild and unpredictable. Cars and drivers are also very reasonable in cost and can be arranged before or after you hit the island.
We can arrange the pick you up at Denpensar Airport and drive you the 1 1/2 hours to Villa Jasi where your smiling staff will greet you warmly and show you to your rooms.
A ten-minute drive away is a often deserted white sand beach (Pasir Putih) about a half-mile long with lovely swimming and a few warungs serving fresh seafood and cold drinks right on the sand. Massages and crafts are also available.
East Bali may be the last refuge of the true Balinese Culture where festivals, temple ceremonies, and rice farming abound as they have done for centuries. Women in sarongs carrying temple offerings on their heads along bamboo-lined back roads are sights that will linger in one's mind long after you are back home. Many villages in the area are craft-oriented specializing in silver jewelry, weaving, ikat, fishing, and baskets, all ready to be explored.
Villa Jasi offers a chance at renewal, re-invigoration, romance, and recreation in uncommon amounts. Though the journey there may be long, upon arriving only the power of the destination will remain as you have successfully traveled into another world.

"My favorite place on the planet"
Ok- so I didn't want to write a review- because this place is so amazing, I would prefer, for selfish reasons, that it be a secret. But I can't be like that, because all businesses need more business, and I know this place is a little off the beaten path and reviews help it gain exposure.
I would have to say that this is my favorite place EVER. The cottages are rustic, but no so intensely rustic that you feel deprived of basic creature comforts (yes, there are places like that- we stayed at one of them- it was a bit over the top rustic and very expensive)
Villa Campuhan is quiet- it is away from any and all hustle and bustle. The only thing you hear is the surf. They serve meals in the big Javanese community pavilion, which is outifitted with really cool INdonesian furniture and deep sofas, hammocks, and dining tables. In front of that is the lovely infinity pool that overlooks the ocean. There is no beach here- its all rocks, and at high tide it comes up to the property wall, but if you want a great beach (and snorkeling) you can get a driver to take you to the white sand beach which is very close. The rice patties are off to one side, and the holy volcanic mountain, Mt Agung, is behind it. There is a cook on site who prepares all the meals. One of the Ketuts (there are 6 of them who work there- Ketut means 4th born child) Ketut the Gardener will climb up a palm tree and cut you down a coconut for drinking. There are no TVs and the internet wifi is dodgy at best- (although we were told they were working on that so that issue might be fixed soon) so bring some great books with you and plan on really relaxing! It was such a relief after the hussle and bustle of the traffic and the vendors hawking services and merchandise to get somewhere so utterly peaceful. I would highly recommend laying out by the pool at night to look at the stars, and to always walk at night with a flashlight so you don't step on a hermit crab or kick a frog. Also, if you've never had a passionfruit, ask Ketut (the kitchen Ketut) for one- they are weird and amazing. And take a short walk over to the chocolate factory- they make chocolate there, and its amazing.

We arriveerden in het pikdonker over een heel klein verlaten en onverhard weggetje, met gemengde gevoelens en alleen het ruisen van de oceaan. Groot was de verrassing de volgende morgen net na zonsopg… More
