Kakatua means cockatoo – a colourful, exotic bird, and a fitting description for this charming villa. Set close to the beach among the rice fields of sleepy Canggu with only its sister, , and the stunning Hotel Tugu for company, Kakatua is a colourful, exotic and very traditional Balinese villa where alang-alang thatched roofs soar above open-sided living areas adorned with antique Indonesian furniture, spilling out onto a colourful, garden and free-form pool.
Kakatua is perfectly equipped for families. One of its four bedrooms has a huge bed encased in a beautiful antique Javanese frame, big enough for four small kids (or indeed three wives). Either way if they are not all getting on you can banish them to their rooms to watch DVDs whilst you enjoy the sport on the satellite channels in the living room. With the spacious garden and a good selection of pool toys to keep the children happy (even a safety fence for the pool), parents can relax.
The charming mix of indoor/outdoor living space allows freedom to chose where to spend your day: chatting over a meal in the thatched dining balé (gazebo), dozing on a daybed at the poolside, playing water polo with the kids or having a quiet read in the airy living room while listening to your iPod (docking station supplied). When you feel the desire to stretch your legs, a visit next door to the fascinating ‘museum’ Hotel Tugu is a must, and Canggu beach is virtually on your doorstep too. A stroll along the sand at sunset, topped off with a refreshing beer at one of the many cafes at Echo Beach might just be the way to finish a perfect day.
There’s really no reason to venture much further than this as a professional team of friendly staff are on hand look after your every need, preparing delicious meals from a suggestion menu (provisions on guest account). However, should you wish to spread your wings a little wider, the bright lights of Seminyak or the cultural delights of Ubud are very accessible thanks to the provision of a car and driver.
