Canggu Villa Rental: Staying at Villa the Sanctuary Bali

Hot off the press from Canggu, Bali

Luxury tropical living, plus around the clock service. Paradise exists at Villa the Sanctuary Bali, an exclusive Canggu villa rental that sleeps an army.

By army, I really mean your tribe of family and friends. This Canggu villa rental is a private 10-bedroom villa that sleeps over 25 people with ease. The massive estate is set along a river and lush gardens and provides an inviting jungle-rich oasis for your party. One glance at the infinity lap pool and your heart may skip a beat. A peek into the tree house massage room and you’ll wish you booked in for an extra week!

The luxurious living quarters

Scattered about the manicured grounds are 10 luxurious bedrooms spread out over 5 villa pavilions. They are well-positioned and centered around the communal pool and open-air living area.  Additionally, every room has high ceilings and teak wooden floors which add to the fanciful Balinese charm of the property. I especially fell in love with the master bedroom. It is a two-story villa that has its very own plunge pool, private garden and outdoor rain shower. There is even a children’s pavilion equipped with 10 bunk beds, making it the perfect Canggu villa rental for large families.

A pool area designed to ‘wow’

A grand staircase from the main living and dining area leads to a beautiful statement pool overlooking the jungle and river below. Here, sunbeds and umbrellas tempt guests to relax and stay awhile. But, that’s not all. A separate billiards room, as well as a and theater room complete the poolside amenities. Swim in the pool, bask in the sun, or enjoy a nature walk along the river. Nevertheless, there will be a pretty view to admire.

Around the clock service

The beauty of staying at this Canggu villa rental is the 27 dedicated staff members that are included in your group’s stay. Private chef?  You bet. Designated driver?  Yep. On-hand butler?  Of course! The local staff are attentive, warm and friendly without being intrusive by any means. From welcome drinks on arrival to daily turndown service in the evening, I was treated like a queen in my Balinese sanctuary.

Speaking of pampering, I recommend a massage at the tree house spa. Or simply relax and read a book up there. This open-air bale overlooks the river and offers the most soul-inspiring nature views.

Although meals aren’t included in the price of your stay, the food was out of this world amazing. I ordered the Gado Gado and Nasi Goreng as I’m a huge fan of Indonesian food. However, guests can also choose many other types of cuisines if they wish. The fully-stocked kitchen is situated behind the main pavilion, but meals are enjoyed in the dining room around a family-style table.

Location, location, location

Villa the Sanctuary is located in Canggu, which is one of my favorite parts of Bali. Furthermore, the villa itself is close to the hipster area around Echo Beach and Jalan Batu Bolong. Eclectic shops, restaurants and bars can be found within a 5 minute drive from the resort, as well as popular beaches known for surfing. Your driver is always available on request to transport you to and from your destination of choice.

Villa The Sanctuary Bali experience in summary

In conclusion, Villa the Sanctuary Bali is the ideal Canggu villa rental for families and large group gatherings. In fact, it is the most perfect destination wedding location. The villa hosts many weddings throughout the year – each unique, yet equally as beautiful as the next. I hope to go back and celebrate a birthday milestone with close friends and family one day.

Last but not least, the layout of the pavilions offer complete privacy in a group setting. The tropical scenery and great location in Canggu make for a lively, yet serene holiday with your dearest ones. The only caveat: it’s hard to return to normal life after you’ve experienced luxury tropical living here.
