Puri Bawana, In Canggu
The splendid 5-bedroom Puri Bawana, complete with 30-metre swimming pool, rests upon almost 2 acres of land (7000m²) surrounded by emerald rice fields, and is within walking distance of the beach near the fishing village of canggu on Bali’s southwest coast.
This is a villa designed for relaxation and getting away from the stresses of quotidian life, and boasts a classic Bali design while sacrificing nothing in terms of creature comforts. Its spacious grounds and many features make it ideal for families or groups of friends traveling together.
Designed by the internationally acclaimed architect, Guy Morgan, the villa is resourcefully integrated into the natural terraced contours of a hill. It is comprised of a series of thatched pavilions, housing a remarkable open living pavilion, an elevated dining pavilion, an entertainment room, two kitchens and five bedrooms, complete with an additional children's bunk room which can be used for up to 5 children.
The buildings are linked by pergola-covered walkways, achieving a unique sense of space within a natural setting. Maximizing the spectacular views and the natural light, and catching the cool breezes even at the hottest time of year, the property offers a blend of air-conditioned comfort and tropical open-air living.
There are numerous relaxation areas, so guests will always find a private spot for peace and quiet. It is ideal for large groups or families with children. Puri Bawana is a member of the Canggu Club (Bali's first country club) and its guests are eligible to use the club facilities.
The air-conditioned master suite features a warm timber floor and sliding glass doors on three sides under a high roof. The modern furnishings include a king-size four poster bed, a couch and a desk and chair. A flat screen TV with DVD is hidden within a rising cabinet that appears at the press of a button. This bedroom is complemented by a spacious timber balcony, which looks across the river to the rice terraces beyond. Here, two cushioned daybeds provide the facility for complete relaxation.
A dressing area and wardrobes (complete with a safe deposit box) are built in behind the bed and linked to the en-suite air-conditioned bathroom, which features a black terrazzo floor and twin washbasins upon a central vanity unit with two mirrors. A toilet and walk-in raindrop shower are located in two separate cubicles with frosted glass doors.
The bathroom extends into a large and private walled garden planted with travelers’ palms, spider lilies and torch ginger. Here, a romantic oversized bathtub rests in the open air, sheltered from the elements by the overhanging roof. There is also an open-air shower.
Suite two and suite three
Suites two & three are located in the family building. Suite two is furnished with twin beds that can be converted into a double bed if required, while suite three presents a king-size bed.

The garden bathroom is characterized by an open-air rainshower beside the lily pond and waterfall. There is also a relaxing area with built-in seats and shelves in the garden bathroom complete with an outdoor bathtub. An external staircase leads up to suite five, the only upstairs bedroom at the villa, affording gorgeous views of the rice fields and river valley. The bedroom is furnished with a king-size bed and an ottoman upon a timber floor under a soaring roof. Behind the sleeping space is a dressing area complete with floating vanity unit with twin washbasins, an indoor shower and toilet and a built-in wardrobe.
An ornately tiled outdoor bathtub is positioned upon a breezy balcony, where there is also a cushioned daybed. Additionally, there is an open-air shower and, to one side, a glassless window presents a wonderful view that guests can enjoy from a cosy, cushioned window-seat.
The magnificent living pavilion presides over the property. It is flanked by a terrace laid with grass-edged Palimanan paving stones, and overlooks the swimming pool, terraced gardens and rice fields.
This open-sided pavilion is modelled upon the traditional Balinese "Wantilan" or village meeting place, with a soaring, two-tiered roof supported by pillars, complete with pendulous lanterns and ceiling fans above a mint-white sandstone floor.
The expansive space is furnished with two comfortable sofas, ottomans, a coffee table, a decorative, antique Javanese daybed, and a pair of white coconut shell chairs with a small matching table. The living pavilion is linked to the rest of the villa by a covered, colonnaded walkway with black and white chequered tiles. Off the walkway is situated a guest washroom decorated with Indian stone tiles and accessed by a colourful, antique Balinese door.
The entertainment/TV room is located under the dining pavilion. The room is equipped with a ceiling fan, teak wall units, and a large satellite TV mounted upon the wall, complete with surround sound, a DVD/CD player, and a Wii Game System.
The furnishings - two large sofas, a glass-topped antique coffee table and two ottomans - can be pushed back against the wall to create an impressive party space. In one corner is a bar that can double as a DJ’s nook. Glass doors open from the entertainment room onto a terrace with a pergola supported by serai stone pillars beside the pool deck facilitating relaxed BBQs and informal dining.
A staircase leads down under the dining pavilion to a small ‘spill-over’ room, which can sleep up to five kids. It is fitted with bunk beds and is also suitable for hosting a domestic staff. There is a bathroom next door with a toilet, shower and washbasin.
The open-sided dining pavilion is elevated above a high buttresses composed of indigenous serai stone, portraying a geometric jigsaw of shapes.
A long suar wood dining table seats up to 14 dinner guests. The pavilion is cooled by natural breezes and ceiling fans and commands fabulous views of the bordering rice fields.
There are two fully equipped kitchens at Puri Bawana, a service kitchen and a state-of-the-art central kitchen positioned next to the dining pavilion and linked by a large service bar.
This immaculate, designer central kitchen reveals a discriminating taste for functional beauty and cutting-edge style. Crafted in black marble with a central island, silver grey units and glassless shuttered windows, it is equipped with a hob, oven, wine fridge, coffee machine and other high tech appliances. There is even the provision of a sound system.
Swimming pool & garden
The swimming pool is 30 meters in length, incorporating a kids’ pool at one end. It is lined with rustic blue Java stone and the curved infinity edge follows the contour of the rice terraces.
Boasting a surface of palimanan stones, the pool deck is furnished with sun loungers and there is an open-sided ‘bale’ (relaxation pavilion) positioned within the pool and accessed by stepping stones.
A raised walkway leads to an elevated bale, a traditional lazy, breezy gazebo with a thatched roof, open sides and a cushioned floor. This is the place to relax, contemplate and meditate, while overlooking the river and enjoying the sights and sounds of nature, butterflies and birds.
Further towards the front of the property, a wide flat lawn planted with four palms is the ideal setting for parties, weddings and events. A pathway leads down to the river and the gardens spill out into the paddy fields to a traditional pavilion designed for wedding ceremonies.
There is also a herb garden and an environmentally-friendly waste water garden. If the season is right, guests will have the opportunity to plant some rice. On the far side of the river, a picturesque rice terrace is carved like an amphitheatre into the contours of the land.
