Puri Nirwana is located on the East coast of Bali away from the maddening tourist crowds within Cucukan Village in the Gianyar District. Experience the real Bali as you stroll the beach steps away from the villa's lush lawn, and mingle with the local villagers as they go about their day to day lives.
Be welcomed by locals to authentic Balinese life in the surrounding 24 house family village and see them working in the nearby rice paddies, tending to their cattle and ducks or creating magnificent glass art in a fully operational glass factory. Witness the beauty of local rituals and traditions as these gentle Hindus worship in one of the nine largest temples (Pura) in Bali all close to the Villa.
The fishermen from the nearby fishing village usually bring the freshest seafood direct from the ocean to the villa entrance and you can place a special request for them to bring many of lobsters for the next day poolside BBQ party.
Cucukan Village is home to around 200 local Balinese who have lived for hundreds of years within the area, with not a great deal changing over the years. Its secluded proximity to the rest of the island has provided an opportunity for this tiny village to achieve its own special identity. These gentle Balinese farmers, who tend their rice paddies, geese, ducks and pigs, are also expert fishermen who launch in the early hours bringing back an array of fresh lobster and delectable seafood each day.
With nine major temples in the area guests can immerse themselves in the beauty of Balinese traditions and rituals, and a
traditional dinner with village heads (Banjar) can also be arranged.
The magical black sand beach serves as a dramatic backdrop to village life, and is home to ex Indonesian President Megawati. Witness the most breathtaking sunrises as the day begins with rays illuminating the ocean horizon. A favorite with internationally titled surfers the nearby Keramas beach is also frequented by locals collecting the dazzling stones and shells that wash up on shore.
Visit the center of a Japanese artist who specializes in the art of glass blowing, and hear traditional music accompanied by local Balinese dance, or join in with Sunday beach volley ball or soccer.
Only twenty minutes drive to the nearby hills is the cultural artistic center of Bali: Ubud. Across the road from the village is the Bali Safari and Marine Park, a beautiful journey into the wild kingdom in a jungle like environment, with important ecological messages combined with old Balinese stories. Bali Zoo and the two Elephant Safari Parks are a short drive away. If adrenalin is your master then you'll love white water rafting or the off road quad bike tours. Mount Agung, an active volcano that towers over the Island of the Gods and visible from the villa, is accessible by car, and tours to witness the first touching of the sun on the island from the peak, can be arranged.
The stunning Water Palace at Tirta Gangga is a must see. Surrounded by statues and pools, it's a true Balinese way to cool off built by the local raja in 1946 and believed to contain water from the sacred Hindu Ganges River.
Just 15 minutes away is the legendary Sukawati Market where the locals shop. A vast array of woven baskets, ceremonial items and paintings, hand painted cloth and wood carvings will keep you busy as you bargain with the locals and find your own personal keepsake to treasure.
