Those seeking a premium villa holiday that offers the full Bali experience, but with Seminyak’s big city lights and fine dining choices still within easy reach, need look no further than Villa Sabana. The rural Bali charm of postcards and travel magazines is right on your doorstep here.
Framed within this picture of riverside and rice-field bliss, the villa is steeped in glorious contempo- classic, hardwood and stone Balinese architecture, furnished with Indonesian antiques, and completed with privacy and very, very good service. With its five bedrooms, 18-metre swimming pool shaded by swaying coconut palms, vast balconies, large garden for the kids to run around in, air-conditioned family room equipped with children’s toys and games, and numerous elegant living areas, Villa Sabana provides ample space for large holiday groups – from extended families to clusters of friends – who enjoy good living and the privilege of choice.
Villa Sabana comprises a main two-storey residence housing four of the villa’s five bedrooms and the dining room; a poolside living pavilion; a family and media room, and a self-contained bedroom pavilion. The bedrooms, dining room and family room are all air-conditioned.
Having one’s own personal butler, chef, car and driver and security personnel may sound like ‘Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous’, but here at Villa Sabana it’s simply the lifestyle every guest can expect.
Among the lawns, towering coconut palms and flowering trees and shrubs of Villa Sabana’s delightful garden, alongside the inviting 18-metre swimming pool, is a spacious open-sided living pavilion furnished with deeply cushioned rattan couches.

Villa Sabana is hidden away in the traditional village of Pererenan, near Canggu, a quiet out-of-town setting that offers the double attraction of being relatively close to trendy Seminyak and everything that guests might need, while also offering visitors a privileged insight into the traditions of rural Bali. Ducks are herded through the rice fields, the sound of ritual music is carried on the breeze, and religious ceremonies are an integral part of daily life. The rugged Canggu Beach (4km) is renowned for its panoramic coastline views, legendary sunsets and world-class surf breaks. For horse lovers, the family- run Kuda P stables is just 300 metres from the villa, offering rides and tuition.
Bedrooms 3 and 4
