Sungai Tinggi Beach Villa is blessed with a sublime beachfront location near the rural village of Pererenan on Bali’s south-west coast. Here guests can take a leisurely sunset stroll along the quiet beach, surf on one of the island’s best breaks, or admire the fishermen in their brightly coloured jukungs (traditional fishing boats) hauling in the daily catch. In this traditional rural setting, where daily offerings at the village temple and meticulous tending of rice fields are the norm, guests are privy to a real slice of local Bali life.
However, should the bright city lights beckon, the upmarket restaurants, bars and shops of cosmopolitan Seminyak are just a 30-minute drive away and your car and driver are on standby to whisk you there.
The villa manager at Sungai Tinggi Beach Villa will typically have a wealth of information about nearby places of interest and will help arrange transport and make any bookings required. Do also ask the staff about the local area. Many of them live nearby and will be able to give an interesting insight into some of the fascinating aspects of Bali life.
In the meantime, here’s a taste of some of the activities on offer within reach of the villa.
Catch a wave, or several, at some of Bali’s best surfing beaches, all are within easy access and Pererenan is right on your doorstep. Among these naturally beautiful beaches, Echo Beach is perhaps the most famed surfers haunt, but all are in prime position for Bali’s legendary sunsets.
On Canggu Beach, be sure to visit mystical Hotel Tugu Bali. Bali’s first museum/hotel is studded with priceless Indonesian artworks and antiques and its award-winning spa offers age-old Eastern therapies. Or try the more casual café across the road; Old Man’s for alfresco all day dining.
Make the de rigueur pilgrimage to sacred Pura Tanah Lot, one of Bali’s biggest tourist magnets. Perched high on a craggy, wave-lashed rock, this ancient sea temple is best savoured at sunset but is less busy in the mornings; be sure to receive a blessing from the Hindu priests.
Fashionistas, trendies and shop-a-holics should hot-foot it down to Bali’s most cosmopolitan enclave, Seminyak. Here, you can indulge for hours in the glut of stylish, global-inspired restaurants, chic boutiques and hipper-than-thou bars – including much hyped, Ku Dé Ta, Petitenget and The Potato Head Beach Club.
Covering 3.8 hectares of tropical parkland in Kuta, Waterbom Bali has 16 water slides (including The Climax with its 360-degree loop) to entertain the young and the young at heart. A great family day out, but go early to beat the crowds.
Drive westwards to explore the unchartered West Bali region, where the charming Tabanan Regency reveals terraced rice fields of emerald green, volcanic mountains including Mt Batukaru and black-sand beaches dotted with fishing communities – treasures that Bali is famed for.
For a day of culture and dramatic landscapes, drive directly north from the villa to the mountain town of Bedugul. From here, explore three volcanic lakes, including Bratan, with its photogenic and stunningly positioned Pura Ulun Danu – one of Bali’s most important temples.
Explore the scenic rice-field landscape and rural villages by bicycle (there are four at the villa for guest use); a great way to get under the skin of the ‘real’ Bali. Stop off at a local warung (café) to sample some basic Balinese fare or cool off with a cold drink.
Pulau Dive Charters offers luxury boat charters around the beautiful islands and waters surrounding Bali. They specialise in private fishing, surfing and diving charters and also offer unique personalised day trips to Nusa Lembongan. Perfect for a family day out on the water or with a group of friends.

June 21st, 2015 - June 27th, 2015
This villa surpassed every possible hope we could have for a special, relaxing and pampered holiday. From the moment that we arrived until we left the staff and management of Villa Sungai Tinngi were superb and couldn't do enough to look after us, whether it was arranging some snacks and drinks by the pool or organising trips from the villa or a full set dinner. The location of the villa is fantastic and on the beach, although about an hour from Seminyak with traffic, but more than doable and easy to arrange. The beach is not great for swimming but was perfect for the kids to play in the sand and waves and also for long walks and to watch the b beautiful sunsets. The Villa set up, bedrooms, bathrooms, pool, etc were brilliant and had a really lovely and homely feel to them. We would definitely recommend this villa for others and will look to stay there again in the future if possible.

An enchanting private villa escape within half an hour of the hustle and bustle of Seminyak - Villa Sungai Tinggi is set in a beautiful oasis on Pererenan beach, one beach up from the famous Echo Beach. The villa is set back far enough to give a sense of complete privacy in tranquil surroundings, while still maintaining spectacular views out to the ocean and beyond. The design is old-school Bali, with every room facing the ocean with large glass doors to ensure the view remains uninterrupted. The two master bedrooms have adjoining studies, which can also be used to accommodate cots for young children. The fabulous daybed overlooks the pool and is the perfect spot to watch the sunset sink into the water. The staff are friendly and accommodating, if a little slow at times. The food can be a little inconsistent depending on who's on duty, but we had some wonderful lunches there with close friends. Their dedicated driver, Nengah, is very good, and will get you places as quickly as possible, but in complete safety. Highly recommend.

Properties like Sungai Tinggi Beach Villa are few and far between. This enchanting, traditionally inspired family home is a travel destination in itself, set within a vast estate that boasts over 100 metres of absolute beach frontage looking onto one of south-west Bali’s renowned surf breaks.
Sungai Tinggi Beach Villa (sungai tinggi means ‘high river’) was designed by long-term Bali residents as a spacious and comfortable family home. Created in the style of a traditional Balinese compound, the villa comprises a series of living and sleeping pavilions oriented for optimum privacy as well as for the glorious ocean views. The four-bedroomed main house (with a lounge that can be converted into a fifth bedroom) can be rented independently from the private two-bedroom Joglo that’s located to the side of the main building. The liberal use of local materials – exotic hardwood and terrazzo floors, coral-limestone walls and vaulted alang-alang thatched roofs – is testimony to the owners’ passion for Bali, as is their stunning collection of museum-quality art and artefacts that contribute to the villa’s unique character and charm.
This appreciation for the local environment extends to the villa’s magnificent tropical gardens, which make a dream setting for a tropical wedding celebration. Soft rolling lawns dotted with fragrant frangipanis and swaying coconut palms hug the landscape’s natural contours, while an 18-metre infinity swimming pool blends seamlessly with the ocean panorama. A circular deck provides ringside seats for viewing Bali’s spectacular sunsets, and a traditional thatched balé decorated in black and white check makes an inviting respite from the sun. Work on your serve at the tennis court (shared with a neighbouring villa), arrange for a soothing massage in your room, or gather for cocktails in the impressive living pavilion. With such a choice of social and private space, Sungai Tinggi Beach Villa is perfect for families or groups of friends.
A friendly staff team pride themselves in taking good care of their guests. From cooking delicious Balinese meals to preparing your canopied bed at night and running your rose-petal bath, they will ensure your stay is truly memorable in every detail. And should you wish to explore beyond the villa, a car and driver maybe arranged for sightseeing, shopping and adventure at a small extra fee.
