Sungai Tinggi Beach Villa - Beach aerial

Canggu Experience

The Locale

Sungai Tinggi Beach Villa is blessed with a sublime beachfront location near 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. An interesting juxtaposition of traditional and modern, this is where daily offerings at the village temple and meticulous tending of rice fields are the norm, while being home to some of the most exciting cafés and restaurants on the island.

Guests at Sungai Tinggi Beach Villa are privy to a real slice of local Bali life. Should the bright lights of Seminyak beckon, the many upmarket restaurants, bars and shops of the cosmopolitan district are a short drive away, and your car and driver are on standby to whisk you there.

Things to Do

Canggu has transformed in the past couple of years from a semi-rural, paddy-dotted sleepy district to one of the most happening places on the island. Often dubbed the ‘coffee hub’ of Bali, there are over 15 coffee shops in Pererenan alone, not counting the plethora of coffee shops, cafes and restaurants that jostle for your attention in Canggu.

The Villa Manager at Sungai Tinggi Beach Villa has a wealth of information about nearby places of interest and can 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:

Head to Monsieur Spoon, an artisan French bakery, only 50m from the villa. Their all-butter croissant is arguably the best in Bali, and standards are not allowed to slip at this family-run bakery-cafe started by two Parisian cousins.

Catch a wave at one of Bali’s fabulous surfing beaches, all within easy access and Pererenan Beach right on your doorstep. Among these beautiful black sand beaches, Echo Beach is perhaps the most famed surfers haunt, but all are in a prime position for Bali’s legendary sunsets.

Nearby Canggu is now party central. Get a taste of Canggu at one of the many popular establishments here, such as Old Man’s bar with its seaside beer garden or The Lawn - a beach lounge which offers front row seats to the most spectacular sunset.

Giving new meaning to shabby tropical chic, La Brisa is a beach club with a difference. Discover it, or other exciting nightclubs like La Favela at the spirited Echo Beach, a short drive away from the villa.

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.

The most exclusive Bali trekking tour promises breath-taking vistas and heart-warming encounters while supporting sustainable social change in the once-forgotten villages of Muntigunung. Elite Havens is a proud partner of Muntigunung Community Social Enterprise.

Despite the development around, Perenenan retains its charm. Explore the area around the villa, and discover a quintessential Balinese village, blissfully surrounded by a green belt and inhabited by a proud local community.

Bicycles are available at the villa for guest use. Head out with your group and witness Bali at her unpretentious best. Stop off at a local warung (café) to sample some basic Balinese fare or cool off with a cold drink.

Less than 8km away, find Splash Waterpark, part of Finns Recreation Club. Swoosh down world-class waterslides and rediscover the child in you. A great family day out, go early to beat the crowds.

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.
