Named after a town in Central Java – famous for its intricate woodcarvings and nineteenth Century joglo houses, Villa Kudus celebrates the legacy of its title. This exquisite five-bedroom property, just a stone’s throw from the beach at Berawa, Canggu, is a perfectly proportioned blend of the old and the new, showcasing a design concept that might be described as ‘ethnic glamour’. The architecture of Villa Kudus features trapezium-shaped joglo roofs, while air-conditioned interiors present floor-to-ceiling windows and glass doors that allow the natural light to stream in and draw attention to the ornate carvings that have become an enduring signature of Javanese history.
At Villa Kudus, you can look forward to intriguing details such as the decorative hand-carved timber panels that were once the wooden screen walls of a nobleman’s house, the beautiful, and often colourful, Asian antique furnishings, and the romantic king-size beds and elaborate headboards crafted from solid teak. Below their soaring roofs, which appear to extend upwards forever, the living pavilion and the master bedroom pavilion incorporate the four-pillared teakwood cores of century-old joglo houses, while on the exterior walls, volcanic stone bas reliefs depict scenes from the Hindu epic, The Ramayana. Yet all of this history is tweaked with contemporary comforts, twenty-first century technology, and sophisticated accessories. Expect deeply-upholstered modern furniture and cushions, cabinets and shelves filled with books and movies, toe-pleasingly soft oriental rugs, flat TV screens and DVD players in every room, sunken jacuzzi bathtubs, powerful monsoon showers, funky lamps, crystal chandeliers, and artwork that demands your attention.
The magic of Kudus is completed with a team of thoughtful staff who will cater to your every need, including the purchase of groceries (on guest account) and preparation of meals. Experience an amazing alfresco lunch or dinner, cooked from a suggestion menu by the in-house chef and served by your personal butler on a raised terrace with views across a green belt of land. Cool down in an enticing swimming pool where a small Buddha statue appears to float on the surface of the water. Enjoy late afternoon cocktails on a hidden terrace, or indulge in a massage in a poolside gazebo administered by professional therapist from a local spa.
Perfect for groups of friends and families, Villa Kudus is one of those captivating holiday homes that is very difficult to leave.

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.
