This amazingly situated 5-bedroom villa is found in the dreamy seaside Balinese village setting of Pantai Brawa, with Pantai meaning ‘beach’. It is a stone’s throw to this very beach and the surf can be heard throughout the villa. This is the ultimate place to unwind and get into a holiday feel, with the generous grounds of 2200 square metres allowing for tranquil moments of reflection in many of the secluded Balinese style gazebo areas. Birdsong, butterflies and ponds make this a true ‘darling’ of a villa, as Sayang means in Indonesian.
The architect-designed villa comprises a spacious main building where there are 2 double bedrooms with en-suite, each with a private garden, and a master bedroom with an en-suite complete with Jacuzzi. The second floor, with an unusual all around balcony framing the floor to ceiling windows, also has an entertainment area with a bar adjoined by a lounge area complete with a multi-media system. A state of the art kitchen is found on the ground floor, or an out door dining and barbeque area is situated next to the large kidney shaped pool, complete with a Jacuzzi, if a touch of stargazing is on the agenda. The two separate double guest villas flank the gorgeous flat landscaped gardens and pool, looking across the grounds.
The main building has floor to ceiling windows, which may be opened up to breath with nature and the tropical Balinese weather, or closed to be fully air-conditioned. Whichever you choose you will not compromise on the view of the peaceful grounds. There are many calming fish ponds dotted around, with walkways over them at entrances to all the villas and main garden and building, in keeping with cleansing Feng Shui beliefs. The gazebo area in the ‘secret’ garden behind the main building has a stunning fishpond full of impressive sized carp complete with a waterfall. There are 3 tranquil gazebo areas in total, with another being poolside and the third again in a secluded garden area, resplendent with tropical flowers. Perfect places to sip on cocktails and enjoy intimate moments.

The impressive kitchen is spacious and has all the necessary to create masterpieces – you may even wish to partake in a cooking lesson, or simply use the facilities yourself.
