Villa Anila is a stunning, majestic home characterised by an infusion of natural light and bright, airy spaces, within a sedate and secluded setting amid the rice fields and coastal breezes of Perenan. Designed and finished to an impeccable standard by architect Stefano Dorata, the result is an incredibly calm, serene and tranquil atmosphere: a home which is both welcoming and warm, whist not compromising on aesthetics.
Design enthusiasts and aesthetes will be in heaven, as the natural blend of indoor and outdoor living occurs so effortlessly by virtue of wonderful sociable and dining spaces flowing into one another by way of floor to ceiling glass. Internally, the ceiling height is impressive, again adding to the ever so airy and calm feel of this home. Whilst being neither ostentatious nor showy, Villa Anila offers the height of comfort within a discreetly elegant backdrop.
The pleasingly symmetrical facade and elegant pillars are nothing short of breathtaking, whilst the formality of the design is softened by the gentle flow of indoor and outdoor spaces. The interiors are crisp, neutral and whitewashed throughout - creating a fresh and airy feel. Understated luxury is the tone of this home, whist it is not short of character and design panache! Natural timber accents, contemporary furnishings, funky artwork, designer lighting - stunning light views across tropical overgrowth and palm trees blend to create an oasis of tranquility. All the while, this home is just five minutes north of Canggu.
There are five spacious bedrooms, all sumptuously finished, with elegant white draped curtains and far reaching views, with quality, crisp bedlinen. Set over three floors, Villa Anila combines luxury and simplicity, blends the indoors with the outdoors, and fuses a hotel like experience with seclusion and privacy.
The living spaces offer large sofas and well selected furnishings, under wonderful full level ceiling, along with intricate hand carvings and wooden artefacts in a nod to traditional Indonesian art and heritage. The kitchen, in keeping with the tone of the villa, offers understated luxury: all the top range appliances are provided, whilst for those who want to sit back and relax, a private chef can be arranged to cook at the villa in any cuisine to suit guests needs. Overlooking the surrounding rice fields, the dining areas are light and breezy with large windows that can be opened to capture the cool evening air. The large dining table can comfortably seat groups of eight or more if required (additional chairs available.)
The villa is surrounded by greenery and luscious fields and foliage; below the pool deck is a garden terrace - imagine relaxing with a good book, or enjoying a group sunset dinner party as the light softens across the rice field views!
For sedate luxury, privacy and lush seclusion surrounded by green and far reaching views, in an ideal family set up, whilst being close to all local amenities, simply look no further!
Villa Anila is a five minute drive north of Canggu on Bali’s wonderful south west coast, it is just moments away from the region’s beautiful beaches.
Bali has been touted as the ‘island of the gods’ because of its strong spiritual heritage and the thousands of temples that occupy the island. With mile upon mile of beautiful beaches in Bali, picturesque mountains and green countryside, the island has become a world class destination and a major influence in the world of architecture and design.
Whilst Villa Anila benefits from the tranquillity of a rural location, close by Seminyak is an up-market beach resort at the southern tip of Bali, with high end shopping and restaurants, sleek bars and glittering nightlife. It is a playground for those who enjoy the finer things in life; foodies, fashionistas and the luxury set flock to this stylish paradise.
There are wonderful nightly sunsets from Seminyak and Petitenget beaches, which are wide, west-facing stretches of Indian Ocean shoreline with pale sands and great surfing potential! These are among some of the most glorious beaches in Bali, offering up scale seclusion and well heeled spas and trendy boutiques.
Stylish and exclusive resort life is interspersed with the utmost in Balinese tranquil beauty. The chic hotspots after the sun softens have garnered and International following with dynamic beach clubs and eclectic bars. Seminyak’s splendid golden beach attracts a smart crowd, with a refined air of luxury, whilst the myriad of side streets offer great dining venues - among these is Bali’s famous “eat street.”
At just a few steps from Petitenget beach lies one of Bali’s major temples.
The temple at Petitenget offers a tranquil oasis behind the glitzy five star appeal of Seminyak. Referred to by locals as “Pura Petitenget,” this centuries old temple is a must-see during the traditional dance rehearsals held regularly by locals in a grand nearby pavilion. The red brick and sandstone architecture add to its ancient appeal. The impressive dragon staircase leads to the temple’s vast courtyard, where a dozen shrines and small pavilions draped in traditional Balinese chequered cloths create a compelling sight.
Petitenget forms one of the island’s Dang Kahyangan collections of sea temples that spiritually guard the island’s perimeters, initiated by the legendary Hindu priest Dang Hyang Nirartha on his historical mission from neighbouring island Java in the sixteenth century.
From cooking classes, yoga retreats, detoxing, to learning to surf, Bali has so much to offer! The array of beach clubs and cocktail bars will mean after hours entertainment is covered, whilst those in pursuit of local life will get lost in the colourful markets and serene rice paddies.
