Dea Villas - Villa Dewi Sri
Apartment | 4 bedrooms | sleeps 8
Easy tropical living is what you will find at the very elegant Villa Dewi Sri, named after the Hindu rice goddess. To the Balinese she represents all that is good and beautiful – the 'rice mother' of fertility and life. Shrines honouring Dewi Sri can be seen in every rice field in Bali and here at her namesake, that same beauty is inherent in every detail.
Entered via stepping stones over an exotic lily pond and a long, pergola-roofed foyer, Dewi Sri is distinguished by an open-sided living and dining pavilion surrounding a lush garden and 18m pool, complete with shallow end for kids, a wide shelf with jacuzzi jets, and a feature river boulder. The dwelling is further enhanced by garden-bathrooms, a fully equipped modern kitchen, and feature-piece vine-covered pergola, against a backdrop of mature coconut trees and working rice fields, all washed by a gentle breeze. There are so many places to relax at Dewi Sri, from the sun loungers surrounding the pool, to the swinging bed on the terrace, to the sofas and chairs in the living room and the large, comfortable family room/home theatre. Each bedroom also has its own private space – be it a secret garden or sun-soaked rooftop terrace – to escape to when you want to be alone. This is a great place for families and groups, and little ones can be easily supervised from the living areas. Movie nights are a big bonus with huge sofas and a 49-inch screen in the air conditioned family room; these sofas double as extra kids' sleeping spaces should there be more than the allotted 2.3 per couple. For more energetic technology, Nintendo is plugged into the big screen downstairs.
Villa Dewi Sri can be rented on its own or in conjunction with any of the other four Dea Villas – Villa Radha (one bedroom), Villa Amy (three bedrooms), Villas Sarasvati and Sati (both 4 bedrooms) – which collectively offer a total of 16 bedrooms. The five villas share facilities at the Dea Spa: indoor and outdoor treatment areas, a sauna and jacuzzi, as well as a fully-equipped gym, children's playground and staff service area. Meals can be selected from a fixed price menu and are prepared by an excellent chef and served by a personal butler. Breakfast, WiFi access, and a car and driver are all included in the daily rate.

The Bali/Lesser Sunda Islands region
Bali is Indonesia's most popular tourist location and is considered one of Asia's premier tropical island destinations. Steeped in history and renowned for its artistic way of life, Bali is a peaceful contrast to some of the more frantic destinations Asia has to offer.
The inner peace and creative talents of the Balinese has attracted artists the world over fascinated by local dancers, silversmiths, wood carvers, potters and painters that seem to pervade throughout the island. The abundant verdant fields and surrounding sea have long supplied Bali with an easy surplus of food leaving time for life's more artistic past times. As a result everything in Bali has a creative and religious element centred around the local Banjar (residents association) – little, adorned temples are everywhere, doors are covered in intricate carvings, huge kites ward off evil spirits and colourful roadside ceremonies bring traffic to a standstill.
Bali is a popular destination principally from Australia and Asia but also from all over Europe. The island welcomes thousands of visitors each year to a relaxing lifestyle, stunning beaches, world class surf, vibrant villages, and spectacular scenery all with an exquisite tropical climate. Located approximately two hours' flying time from Singapore the island is serviced by an international airport at Denpasar with direct flights to and from many major cities in Asia, Europe and Australia and many more via Jakarta, Indonesia's capital.
The island offers an impressive range of leisure and lifestyle amenities including world-class golf courses, wonderful seascapes for surfing, diving and snorkelling as well as luxurious spas, chic boutiques, tropical forests, towering volcanoes and international cuisine.
Canggu is actually a small fishing village, but has become the collective name for a number of villages (including Berawa, Tegal Gundul, Tiyingtukul, Pererenan, Nelayan, Babakan ) which, despite lying within a developing area, can still be described as a sleepy coastal locale.
Here, amongst the rice fields which extend all the way down to the beach, you will find some of the most luxurious private residences on Bali. It is also an area that most surfers will know about, with reef swells that are larger than those you will find in Kuta further south. Swimming isn't advisable however as the rips can be dangerous. Nearby sporting facilities include the Canggu Club (of which many holiday villas in the area include guest membership), offering social and leisure amenities, including a state-of-the art gym, a 25m swimming pool and a tennis and squash centre.
Along the coast to the north of Canggu is the Nirwana Bali Golf Club which was designed by Greg Norman and is frequently voted the number one golf course in Asia. Next to this is Pura Tanah Lot; a sea temple perched high on a craggy wave-lashed rock and probably the most photographed sight in Bali. Sophisticated Seminyak, a few kilometres south of Canggu, lays claim to the highest concentration of independent fine-dining restaurants on the island, including Sarong, La Lucciola and Ku Dé Ta, together with a wide choice of chic cocktail bars, exciting nightclubs, lavish spas and elegant boutiques.
