BALI - SECLUDED FULLY STAFFED VILLA WITH POOL IN SPECTACULAR TROPICAL GARDENS

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday villa in Tumbak Bayuh - Villa Tukad

Fully staffed 3 bed/3 bath villa 5 kms from Echo Beach.

A unique, fully-staffed detached villa in a stunning location 5 kms from Echo Beach. This architect-designed holiday home of an English professor and writer combines traditional Asian and modern Western elements. The spacious accommodation comprises three stylish bedroom suites (one in a self-contained guest house), large reception, office and an attic/TV room. The villa contains a wealth of Buddhist and Balinese artefacts and antiques. The veranda with dining table and day bed, overlooks secluded pool and spectacular tropical gardens. The garden extends to the river and contains 2 pavilions with cushions or sofa. There are water features, stone carvings and shrines, and an infinity pool (10 X 4 metres) surrounded by palms, giant ferns, orchids and bougainvillea. In an unspoilt village location with local temples, the villa is only 15 mins from Canggu beach, and 25 mins from the smart restaurants and shops of Seminyak.

***NEW FOR 2013 - Villa Tukad has been extended with our new villa 'Dua' next door. We can now accommodate ten guests for weddings, family get togethers etc. If Villa Tukad is already booked when you want to come to Bali, please contact us for availability at Dua - further details, rates and pictures will be posted to this site soon.

Satisfied customers: Villa Tukad has been running for seven years now, in which time we have received nothing but praise for the facilities, the gardens, the atmosphere and especially the staff. The full-time cook keeps improving and her reportoire of Western and Asian dishes and the quality of her cooking means guests rarely go out to eat.

See reviews for guest comments are available on request.

Our guests mainly come from England, France, Germany, Russia, Singapore, Hong Kong and Australia - the staff speak some English, and manage to communicate with guests from most countries.

A two-centred holiday: Visitors to Bali who would like to see more of the island might like to consider combining a stay at this villa with our other property in Bedugul. As well as golf, there are other outdoor pursuits in Bedugul to take advantage of the cool, fresh air. Boating, trekking, fishing etc.

The two properties are very different and although they are only one hour's drive apart, the climate in Bedugul is much cooler.

If you are interested in golf, then the two villas combine to give you close access to two of the most picturesque golf courses in Asia. The Nirwana (managed by Le Meridien) is at Tanah Lot. The Pancasari Country Club is a spectacular course in the crater of a volcano adjacent to property no 85226.

We will arrange transfers between the two properties, food and provisions to take to Bedugul and the villa manager will look after all your needs in both properties.

Please note that Villa Tukad, Villa Dua and the Bedugul property are NON-PROFIT MAKING ventures. All rental proceeds go to the staff, the village, and local suppliers.

English professor in Hong Kong planning to retire to Bali soon.

Paul Smethurst purchased this villa in 2005

Villa Tukad is far enough from the bustle of Bali's tourist resorts to provide a real experience of life in a Balinese village. Although the property is in a village, it is very secluded with high walls containing the fabulous gardens. It has all the luxuries and much more space than most holiday villas, and these are the reasons we chose it as an eventual retirement home. The property comes with the best staff you could hope for, and they have been with us for eight years now. There are still plenty of restaurants, shops and sites within a short drive, so for us it is in the perfect position, secluded, connected with 'real' Bali, but not too far from tourist Bali when we want to a night out or some retail therapy.

Guests and friends who have stayed at Villa Tukad remind us how special the place is. Unlike the sometimes soulless and ubiquitous 'luxury tropical villas' all over Asia, this was built with love and care, not to a price. Villa Tukad affects people and many keep coming back. One guest from Australia has been 5 times now, and says he is addicted to the charm and the atmosphere of the place. Another unique benefit is our star cook Desak, who is able to conjure western and Asian dishes with consummate ease. Our French guests rarely eat anywhere else. The other staff are also loyal, charming and utterly trustworthy.
