Visit the Chalina Estate and you will understand why this majestic property provided so much inspiration for its artist owner. At this 6+1-bedroom villa, guests can experience the liberating, laidback tropical lifestyle for which Bali has become so famous. Heralded by lily ponds, the villa showcases classic Balinese architecture with alang-alang thatched roofs, oscillating fans suspended from huge vaulted ceilings in open-sided pavilions, and the owner’s colourful, tactile artwork displayed on the yellow-ochre sandstone walls. The singing Pangi River borders a gorgeous garden of rolling lawns while, on a clear day, the stunning rice-terrace view extends all the way to Mount Batukaru, Bali’s second highest volcano. And then there’s the glorious sunsets; particularly spectacular when enjoyed from the huge balcony of the master bedroom.
Located only one kilometre from the rugged surf beach of Pererenan, near Canggu, on the outer fringes of south-west Bali, Chalina is big, serene and beautiful, with a dazzling 30m swimming pool as its centrepiece and three stand-alone guest pavilions in the garden. Living spaces, sofas, bathrooms and bathtubs are huge, while a colour theme of purple and lavender extends from the dining chairs to the sun loungers to the scatter cushions. Everything – from the bedrooms to the extensive lawns – is manicured like a bride’s hands on her wedding day. In fact, the Estate is so geared up for weddings and after-parties, and accommodating big groups of families and friends, that all you have to do is buy the dress and turn up. The property is a much-loved family home, and with plenty of lawn space for running around, is heaven for kids; while the surrounding rural area is ideal for exploring on a pushbike (there are four at the villa), especially in the late afternoons.
Luxury holiday living at The Chalina Estate comes with a team of staff including personal butlers and a driver and car (included in the rate). Guests are invited to select dishes from a suggestion menu, the staff will do the grocery shopping (provisions at cost, plus a 20% service fee) and the villa’s private chef will prepare delicious meals and barbecues.
