Saba - Villa Sadewa
from £264 /night help
Apartment | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 4
Saba – meaning 'a place frequented' or 'a meeting place' in Sanskrit – is an enclave of five stylish self-contained villas offering rental options ranging from one to nine bedrooms. The names of the villas – two bedroom master villas Yudhistira and Bima, two-bedroom villas Nakula and Sadewa and one-bedroom villa Arjuna – were inspired by five of the most-famous shadow puppet characters, the Pandawas brothers, heroes of the 5000-year-old Hindu epic, the 'Mahabaharata'. The brothers can all be found at Saba, each making his presence felt in the form of a giant, colourful woodcarving. Guests staying Saba will get a true sense of rural Bali: rice is planted and harvested in the surrounding fields; birds sing by day, frogs croak at night.
The property is only a short walk from a quiet beach yet a mere four kilometres from the restaurants, shops and nightlife of Seminyak. Set within neat walled gardens, the compact Villa Sadewa is designed for authentic tropical living, courtesy of its open-sided lounge and dining pavilion and traditional relaxation balé, which both rest alongside the private swimming pool. The villa's contemporary-styled architecture and modern furnishings are offset by colourful artwork, artefacts and sculptures, as well as pretty flowering trees and shrubs, while each of the air conditioned bedrooms is adjoined by an enchanting garden bathroom with soaking tubs open to the sky.
A compact but well-equipped kitchen is available for guests wanting to self-cater, but most choose to be pampered with Saba's gourmet cuisine, prepared in the main kitchen by an inspired chef and served by personal butlers. An 'in-villa' cooking service is also available; a suggestion menu is provided and the staff will do the grocery shopping. Villa Sadewa is ideal for couples or a small family, while Saba itself is perfect for larger groups as the five villas are interconnected by ingenious, lockable, sliding garden walls and doors.

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.
