Today I had the pleasure to stumble upon another exquisite boutique resort called Dea Villas ... and I quote:
'Welcome to Dea Villas - four tropical garden villas in rural Berawa close to Canggu. A sense of space sets this exclusive enclave apart; each villa comprises living and bedroom pavilions set in its own private gardens with swimming pool, sun deck, lotus ponds and myriad quiet corners.'
'Villa Sati comprises a series of individual pavilions, well screened in delightfully established gardens. The largest of these is the open-sided living pavilion, which looks over an amphitheatre style performance space near the large free-form swimming pool. Encircling the pool are four joglopavilions, each housing a bedroom with garden bathroom and sun terrace. Among these is the sixth and smallest building – an antique lumbung(traditional rice barn) which doubles as a playhouse.'
Spacious - luxurious - traditional Javanese vernacular - yet translated beautifully in a contemporary manner. The lush tropical gardens are landscaped to perfection - and the layout of the villa's allows enough privacy to retreat to - and again, enough openness to engage and interact with your fellow family members or friends also staying at Dea Villas
I can only imagine how tranquil it must be to awake here - in the midst of a beautiful paradise - life cant get much better than this!
