Overview

Karangasem Villa Rental Photos and Description

Villa, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 1-5)

Nestled where two fresh-water rivers run into the Lembok Straights of the Indian Ocean, Villa Agung was selected as ARCHITECTURAL DIGEST's lead feature in the 'Exotic Homes Edition' in August 2009 for its unique design, luxurious appointments and magnificent setting. Designed by Linda Garland, built by a team of Sumatran master carpenters, the owners spared no expense in making the home environmentally friendly( built with all re-cycled wood) and seamlessly integrated into the natural setting.

In front lies the ocean and behind towers Bali's main 12,000 foot volcano, Mt. Agung, the 'sacred mother of Bali.' To the north over the terraced rice fields is the Seraya mountain range whose cooling breezes blow in most nights. Thus the property is a 360 degree experience.

The villa is actually six villas organized at the ocean's edge with 2500 square foot long house which serves as the living room/dining room house for the five bedroom villa.

Villa Agung, the master bedroom house, is another 2500 square foot long house with two bathrooms (her's has a bidet), a king-sized bed, living room area, two-person jacuzzi bathtub and both ocean and mountain view decks.

The villa come with the friendly staff of ten people: two cooks, three house caretakers, three gardners and two night security men there all day to meet your every need, including cleaning, and providing a delicious breakfast a day provided in the price of the villas. Lunch and dinner can be arranged for an additional amount. They are all smiles and will climb the many cocoanut trees to give you some 'ayer kalapa muda,' young cocoanut milk, or fresh-sqeezed orange juice, Bintang beer or sodas all day.

There are surf breaks nearby and surf guides can be arranged by the staff and are recommended to insure happy integration into the line-up. The local break, Pura Delam, can generate waves from two-feet to double overhead depending on the season and the swells. You can see the break from the living room/dining room house to tell what the swell is doing. It's a five minute drive away.

There is snorkeling right out front for lobster and sea life observation and excellent diving all over the area including wreck diving in nearby Tabanan. Bali is a haven for all water sports.

Facials and massages can be had at the villas with notices to the staff and are highly recommended and inexpensive. Also, recommended is to hire a car and driver by the week so that your freedom of movement is assured. It is NOT recommended to drive in Bali as the traffic behavior is quite wild and unpredictable. Cars and drivers are also very reasonable in cost and can be arranged before or after you hit the island.

We can arrange the pick up at Denpensar Airport and drive you the 1 1/2 hours to Villa Agung where your smiling staff will greet you warmly and show you to your rooms.

A ten-minute drive away is a often deserted white sand beach (Pasir Putih) about a half-mile long with lovely swimming and a few warungs serving fresh seafood and cold drinks right on the sand. Massages and crafts are also available.

East Bali may be the last refuge of the true Balinese Culture where festivals, temple ceremonies, and rice farming abound as they have done for centuries. Women in sarongs carrying temple offerings on their heads along bamboo-lined back roads are sights that will linger in one's mind long after you are back home. Many villages in the area are craft-oriented specializing in silver jewelry, weaving, ikat, fishing, and baskets, all ready to be explored.

Many local restaurants abound and both the luxurious Alila Hotel and Aman Kila Hotels are located within 45 minutes and have a number of fine, gourmet restaurants should you want a change of dining pace.

Most of all, Villa Agung offers a chance at renewal, re-invigoration, romance, and recreation in uncommon amounts. Though the journey there may be long, upon arriving only the power of the destination will remain as you have successfully traveled into another world.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Just back from hosting a weekend celebration with dear friends at Villa Campuhan (a constellation of 5 villas and a communal area, of which Villa agung stars as the master suite).



Fifteen of us fit spaciously for overnights, with a couple beds to spare. Overflow spilled into Turtle Bay Hideaway (next door) and Rumah Kelapa (just up the road), both also highly recommended.



On the Saturday night, staff assisted us in hosting about 35 for a Balinese feast (the marinated gurami grilled over charcoal in banana leaf was a huge hit!) in what might take the prize as Bali's most fantastical party venue -- a traditional Minangkabau palace, sans walls, overshadowed by Mount agung and overlooking the Indian Ocean.



While our guests were all well-travelled Bali expats (two of them celebrating 20 years in Bali), none were too jaded to get their socks blown off by the Campuhan experience. Comments included "Epic!", "The best time of my life!" and "This party will be one for the history books!" One of our guests found one weekend wasn't enough -- he immediately booked three nights for the next.



Campuhan has a Disneyland-for-grownups feel to it -- thanks to the mind-blowing architecture, artifacts and natural setting. Beyond that, kids get happy here for all the right reasons (exploring and interacting). All worked up healthy appetites, and not one was seen playing a video game!



Besides lounging in two pools, on a black sand beach, and surfing the Campuhan house break, our group kept busy with a guided tour of the Uforia chocolate factory (a 5-minute walk Campuhan) and dining at Citronelle, a charming and tasty French/Balinese restaurant at Rumah Kelapa. We kept threatening an expedition to Pasir Putih (Bali's best white sand beach -- one hour hiking or 15 minutes driving), but on such a short stay we ultimately failed to pull ourselves away. Next time!



All in, if your dreams of a gathering venture beyond "memorable", into the realm of "life-changing", point your group at Villa Campuhan!

Beautiful & Peaceful

Beautiful & Peaceful
  • 5 of 5
We stayed in Villa Agung May 20-24, 2014. This Villa is amazingly picturesque and peaceful. Sunrises and sunsets from the deck looking into the ocean were breathtakingly beautiful. Waking up to the sounds of the ocean was delightful. This Villa had the most comfortable bed and pillows. The breeze from the ocean coming into Villa Agung made the Balinese heat more tolerable. We love the open concept in the bathroom; we can enjoy a nice relaxing shower while hearing the waves crash and look into the starry sky. The staff is very professional and they go above and beyond to make your stay enjoyable. We enjoyed our delicious and plentiful Balinese 3 course dinners every night at the Villa. We are a couple in our 30’s and we really enjoyed the quiet and private setting that Villa Campuhan offers. Barbara (owner) and Ketut Redana (Villa manager) accommodated us very well during our stay. It was a very relaxing five days of pure paradise and words couldn’t truly describe this breathtaking experience.

We dreamed a dream of Paradise

  • 5 of 5
Villa Campuhan is a truly incredible paradise! My husband and I were the two luckiest people to have this dreamland for two weeks for our honeymoon! I really only thought places like this existed in my dreams! Beyond beautiful(views if both the black sand beach and the volcano). Great food - breakfast,lunch and dinner. The most relaxing massages - anytime you want them. Gorgeous and comfy villas. Balinese artwork - Tons of statues and masks!! Best of all, is that they have the most wonderful people working there!! They took the best care of us and always made sure we had anything we wanted. The manager, Ketut plans any activities you want to do (on any part of the island) and has you set up with the same driver for your entire stay... Even if it's just to go to the white sand beach that's ten minutes south of the villa. By the time we had to leave, we felt like we had become family with them. We can't wait for our next trip here! We already miss our Villa Campuhan family!

Extraordinary Bali

  • 5 of 5
The Villa Campuhan is a truly unique experience, far removed from the generic, luxury resort circuit, the Villa is something much more authentic and interesting. Upon arrival you realize that the lovely photos didn't begin to capture the beauty and the scale of the architecture which is perfectly in harmony with the natural setting. Filled with a fascinating collection of artifacts, gorgeous fabrics and massive lounge worthy furnishings the accommodations are gorgeous! Once you get past the beauty and the luxury of the place it is really the people of Villa Campuhan that make the experience such a pleasure. Everyone is welcoming and happy to meet you, by the end of our stay we were truly sad to part from our new Bali friends. The Villa is connected to Jasri village, just outside the gates you can walk past the homes and business of the local people, we even ran into our driver Ketut who invited us for a drink. Walk a little further to the lovely Tirta Gangga Water Palace. Each morning the sound of workers scaring birds from the rice paddies drifts through the windows and villagers wander past to fish or bathe in the river. Meals are also a pleasure. Overseen by manager/chef Penny the food is fresh, delicious and authentically Balinese. A day spent with Penny exploring the local market, followed by a cooking class at her beautiful restaurant, Bali Asli, was a highlight, definitely recommended. Exploring the island is easy, we enjoyed outings with the local driver who had met us at the airport. As well as negotiating the roads he acted as our tour guide so every trip we had a better picture of life in Bali. Our family of four spent a wonderful twelve days staying in the Villa Agung. We loved meeting the people and experiencing the culture of this authentic corner of Bali and hope to return!!
