A villa conceived as a luxurious Balinese home for its New Zealander owners, East Residence and Spa is thankfully now available for private rental. Nestled amongst Canggu’s rice fields in south-west Bali, this magnificent villa features five spacious ensuite bedrooms, including a Rainforest Cottage, plus infinity-edge pool and open-air Balinese lounge. A stand-out feature is the private spa, positioned away from the main building, where two professionally-trained therapists are on-call and facilities include an open-air stone bath.

The passion poured into this villa is astounding, but it’s the magnificent gardens, tended daily by three gardeners, that are the owner’s greatest pride and joy. Defined by terraced landscaping, the grounds fall naturally into three distinct areas dissected by the diminutive River Subak. Stone steps cut through sloping manicured lawns interspersed with banana plants, exotic blooms and water features. At the bottom, three traditional thatched balés (gazebos) stand, bordered by jungle, on a ledge beside another river; an idyllic setting for yoga and meditation.

The property successfully marries modern and traditional Balinese with western comforts. The owners, along with on-site manager, Raka, personally sourced the high-quality, predominantly Balinese furniture and the imported Italian fixtures. Built in 2008, the villa’s ‘newness’ is evident; from the dedicated TV room to the sparkly ensuite bathrooms with contemporary fittings to the pristine pool-deck area. Yet bedrooms and out-buildings feature traditional high ceilings, and exquisite Indonesian artworks and artefacts (such as antique Sulawesi warrior jackets) abound. Although East Residence and Spa evokes a boutique resort feel, the owner’s underlying ‘home away from home’ vision is foremost.

The welcoming staff team of ten, including on-site manager, Raka, are always on-hand but are the height of discretion. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are prepared by chef Made (Mar-day) from a suggestion menu of Indonesian and international favourites. Grocery provisions for all meals are charged at cost price, although first day breakfast is complimentary. And if you can bear to leave the villa, a seven-seater car plus driver is available for up to eight hours per day, with petrol at extra cost.

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.
