Walk through the hidden backstreets of the traditional village of Tengkulak and you will hear the gentle tapping and cheerful banter of the woodcarvers. Sitting cross-legged on the ground and using a number of small, highly-sharpened tools and mallets, the master-carvers lightly chisel, chip and pick away at the doors they are crafting until all of the delicate details are visible.

In a private courtyard within this same village, a pair of colourful, intricately-carved Balinese doors heralds the entrance to a secret garden. Peer through and be privy to a descent of 17 stone steps to a velvety lawn, a relaxation pavilion and a curved, infinity-edged swimming pool, bordered by jungle upon the ridge of a river valley. Welcome to the peace and serenity of The property .

Resourcefully integrated into the natural contours of a hill, and named after a yellow trumpet flower, The property is a one-of-a-kind property. The architecture is neo-colonial in style, and comprises two thatched pavilions, housing four bedrooms (one of which doubles as an air-conditioned TV lounge). Enter the main door of the villa, where two comical statues stand sentry, and you will find yourself upon a living and dining terrace fringed by a forest of banana trees, giant bamboo and towering coconut palms – just the place to absorb the natural surroundings, the rush of the river, and the songs of the birds and the cicadas.

At this charming hideaway, a treasured collection of hand-picked furniture and artwork invites you to relax, put up your feet and recharge your batteries. Here, you will be looked after by a professional team of staff, including the complimentary services of a car and driver for up to eight hours a day. Breakfast is included in the villa rate and for all other meals a house menu of freshly-made (mainly Indonesian/Asian) dishes will tantalise your taste buds. Groceries are purchased by the staff on guest account, and meals prepared by a trained chef. The property is ideally suited for families or groups of friends and is only five kilometres from the royal town of Ubud, where folks of all ages can enjoy a gamut of holiday activities.

The property is located in the traditional woodcarvers' village of Tengkulak, which sits on a fertile stretch of rice-field land between the Petanu and Pakrisan rivers, five kilometres east of Ubud. About 480 families live in the village, which offers a true insight into daily Balinese life; here you will see farmers tending their rice fields, children playing in the river, and local staff from the village reporting for duty at the prestigious Chedi Club at Tanah Gajah. A small intersection is the venue of a fruit and vegetable market, and there is also a big temple here, which means that colourful Hindu ceremonies are a common sight. There are no international restaurants within walking distance apart from The Restaurant at The Chedi Club (1km).
