Approached through Saba village, with its idyllic scenery of verdant rice fields and coconut groves, this beachfront property which rest on landscaped gardens and faces the Indian Ocean's crashing surf is a spectacular sight. Contemporary Asian in design and lavishly appointed, the architectural grandeur of this six-bedroom villa emphasises majestic dimensions to create an atmosphere of serenity and refinement.
At Villa Saba, the pursuit of relaxation is amply catered for with a gym and infrared sauna, a topnotch theatre room and a series of intimate, luxurious outdoor spaces, while epicurean pursuits are more than satisfied by the kitchen, which produces fine dining par excellence.
Built in 2002 and lovingly designed and furnished by its owner, Villa Saba hints of Versace and European sophistication: an elegant black and gold theme permeates throughout, while furnishings are fashioned from the finest imported fabrics. Food is served on gold plates, pool towels are by Chanel and several precious glass sculptures by a celebrated Japanese artist ornament the villa.
Guests have included international celebrities and royalty, discreetly served by the experienced yet charming villa staff.
Villa Saba, however, is much, much more than a luxury beachside residence. The villa is named after the fragrant Ylang Ylang flower, renowned for bringing harmony, peace, warmth and passion, and its mantra is 'passionate serenity', which is exactly what you will find here. Radiating a positive and rejuvenating energy, Villa Saba's wildly beautiful beachside setting is therapeutic in itself, but add the yoga and spa treatments, health-conscious food and calming chill-out zones and you have a magical retreat. Secluded and peaceful, you may not want to leave this destination villa, but should you venture out you are within easy driving distance of many of Bali's tourist attractions and natural splendours.
Villa Saba rests in the quiet coastal village of Saba, in an area collectively known as Ketewel, within Bali's eastern Gianyar Regency.
This eastern coastal region is an exceptionally wonderful part of the island – naturally beautiful, amazingly unspoilt and packed with cultural and scenic attractions.
Saba is the quintessianal Balinese village, distinctive with its stretches of emerald rice fields and coconut groves, dotted with a harmonious mix of unobtrusive foreign residences and local dwellings.
Villa Saba's gardens stretch down to Saba Beach, Its shimmering black sanda a reminder of Bali 's volcanic heritage.The deserted stretch of beach offers unobstructed panoramas with stunning views across the Badung Strait and Nusa Penida, (one of Bali's smaller sister islands). And on a clear day, the silhouette of towering volcano, Mount Agung, is visible in the distance. Sunrises are a spectacular treat here, especially over Nusa Penida's limestone cliffs.
A tidal river flows between the beach and villa; Peanut River alters its course with every changing season, so access to the beach requires crossing the river half of the year by way of a small boat provided by the villa.
It's safer to swim in a protected bay area just five minutes westwards ( or head south to the calm waters of nearby Sanur).
The offshore reef here is renowned for its surf breaks, and there's excellent surfing to be had ten minutes in either direction of the villa: nearby Mascheti Beach has world-class surf breaks and hosts international surfing tournaments.
Private performances can be arranged at the villa; private performances at the villa by young traditional dancing girls can be arranged. Balinese Hindu purification ceremonies are held beside the sea at nearby sacred Pura Segara sea temple; Purification ceremonies are held at the nearby Pura Segara sea temple, and prayer blessings are performed daily at the main temple situated at the entrance to the road leading to Villa Saba.
