Villa Pangi Gita’s official greeting, “Welcome to Paradise” couldn't be more fitting.
At this delightful Bali retreat in the traditional village of Pererenan, lush terraced gardens rich with foliage and colourful blooms step down to a gurgling river, enveloping traditional-style living and sleeping pavilions defined by gleaming teak and terrazzo floors, steeply vaulted ceilings, iron-wood shingle roofs, and walls of glass doors that open every building up to welcome in the exotic surrounds. The owners' impressive collection of Asian antiques and furnishings presents a unique sense of style and demonstrates the love and commitment that has gone into making this three-bedroom villa extra special.
Water is an important feature here, and its significance is reflected in the villa’s name which translates to 'the singing river Pangi’ – a reference to the small river that borders the property and enhances the ambiance with its blissful melody. This sound is echoed throughout the villa’s grounds, with water features, fountains and trickling fishponds cascading over terraces to create a calm and soothing atmosphere.
The villa flows with spaces for guests to unwind and relax too, from the generous open-sided living pavilion cooled by ceiling fans, to the cosy air-conditioned study with its satellite TV and DVD player, or the traditional balé (relaxation gazebo) that overlooks the delightful lagoon-style swimming pool by the river’s edge.
To complement this oasis, a team of warm and friendly staff are on hand to spoil guests with their exceptional service. The experienced private chef prepares delicious home-cooked meals, while villa attendants take care of daily housekeeping duties and special requests such as serving cocktails by the pool or arranging deluxe spa treatments on the villa's massage bed.
While guests will be hard pressed to leave Villa Pangi Gita, a stroll through the village streets and rice fields should not be missed; nor should a sunset drink at nearby surfer’s haunt Echo Beach. A car and driver can easily be arranged (on guest account) for excursions further afield.
