Apartment | 4 bedrooms | sleeps 6
Courtyard living looms large at Villa Hana. Within the semi-open-air confines of this single-storey, four-bedroom property are a series of hidden courtyards – perhaps more in keeping with a town house than a close-to-the-beach villa in sleepy Canggu. Nevertheless, with its stylish modern interiors, the villa offers a peaceful retreat from the outside world. Large enough to accommodate six adults and four kids, Villa Echo, with its sunny courtyards and small grassed areas – one of which runs alongside a gentle river – is ideal for kicking back and chilling out.
The main courtyard incorporates a sparkling 14m x 5m swimming pool running the whole length of the property, its cobalt blue tiles bringing a bright splash of colour to the white walls and dark timbers of the building. Eight evenly-spaced ornamental palms of equal height stand sentinel alongside the wall that borders the pool, with loungers positioned at both ends of the deck to catch the sun throughout the day.
The villa’s cavernous interior has a vaulted roof, polished concrete floors, and alternating walls of white plaster and yellow ‘serai’ sandstone rocks randomly pieced together like a Byzantine puzzle. Kids will be delighted by their bedroom – a spacious den with four beautiful black wooden bunk beds built into one wall like berths on a cruise ship, as well as a play area equipped with their very own flat screen TV, DVD player and Playstation. How cool is that!
The villa’s poolside living room is furnished with generous wicker chairs and sofas, ideal for aperitifs before an alfresco dinner at the courtyard table under a pergola roof or a more elegant indoor event. Perhaps most exciting of all – for kids of all ages – you can complete your evening at the home cinema with its 52-inch satellite channel TV and DVD player. The finishing touch is an excellent chef and lovely housekeeping and waiting staff (shared with neighbouring four-bedroomed Villa Asante) who will serve you meals and refreshments all day (provisions on guest account) if they can ever find you in all those hidden courtyards! Should you wish to explore further afield, a car and driver are also at your disposal.

The Bali 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.
