Located in Canggu, Indonesia both villas Sungai Tinggi and Sungai Laut are charming properties which you can enjoy jointly.
On the one hand, Sungai Tinggi was designed and built by a family of long-term Bali residents, whose love and passion for the island is evident from their choice of local materials and the museum-like collection of handpicked artworks scattered throughout the home.
Soft rolling lawns hug the landscape’s natural contours while a free-form 18-metre infinity swimming pool blends seamlessly with the ocean all the way to the horizon. Fragrant frangipanis and swaying coconut palms frame the garden amongst a sea of luscious green foliage to create a stunning and private oasis.
On the other hand, Sungai Laut is set on the edge of a sun-dappled grove of coconut palms, looking out over a small mangrove- lined river inlet onto a black-sand beach – hence its name, which is translates as ‘river sea’.
This heart-racingly romantic beach-house is fashioned from a joglo – a traditional Javanese teakwood house – and imaginatively reconstructed to provide contemporary style and comfort in an amazing Bali beachfront setting. Its spacious, light-filled interior, which incorporates two bedrooms and a large living room, is full of antique furniture and artefacts collected by the owners from across the Indonesian archipelago. Wrap-around verandas cooled by sea breezes provide welcome shade, and lead onto a coconut-wood deck and plunge pool with jacuzzi.
Perfect for families or groups of friends the villa’s abundance of space means there are plenty of places to unwind. Play a match on the tennis court, enjoy a massage in the garden balé, admire the sunset from the balcony or get together in the impressive living pavilion – you’re simply spoilt for choice.
At Sungai Laut the transition between indoor and outdoor space is seamless, and the opportunity to enjoy Bali’s famed sunsets are endless.

Villa Sungai Tinggi is truly blessed in that it lies right on the beach near the seaside village of Pererenan on Bali’s south-west coast. Here guests can take a leisurely stroll, surf on one of the island’s best breaks or admire the fishermen in their brightly coloured jukungs hauling in the daily catch. In this traditional rural setting, away from the city lights, where daily offerings at the village temple and meticulous tending of rice fields are the norm, guests are privy to a real slice of local Bali life.
