Set in a sprawling tropical garden, individual living and bedroom pavilions make Villa Kudus the perfect option for families or friends wanting to get together in sophisticated yet comfortable surroundings.
A mere 2 minutes from Berawa beach, Villa Kudus is ideally located to take advantage of all that Bali has to offer; From the famous surf breaks dotted along the stunning Canggu coastline, to world-class restaurants, outstanding shopping and many more cultural delights.
About Villa Kudus
To create their exceptional villa, the owners of Villa Kudus carefully sourced traditional wooden pavilions from the famous joglo-building region in Java, from which the villa takes its name. Some of these unique hand-made structures are over 150 years old and have been superbly restored and refurbished, providing the villa with a timeless stateliness and majesty.
The devotion that has gone into crafting this beautiful villa can also be seen in the tasteful artworks and antiques which have been sourced from all over Asia and as far afield as Russia. These, along with comfortably plush sofas, ornate chandeliers and oriental rugs, give each space in the villa a sumptuous opulence. Also boasting modern conveniences such as its state-of-the-art kitchen, coffee machines, flat-screen televisions, the villa offers a perfect blend of old and new.
Villa Kudus offers guests space aplenty to relax in private or come together socially; be it on a lounger by the pool, in a shaded spot in the garden, being treated to a massage at the poolside balé or dining alfresco under the stars. And wherever guests choose to unwind, the villa’s attentive and friendly staff will be there to take care of their every need.
It only takes a few minutes to walk to Berawa Beach with its world-renowned surf and beautiful sunsets. And for the more ardent walker a stroll along the glistening volcanic sands will bring you to some of Bali’s most iconic restaurants: Ku De Ta and La Lucciola among them. But if walking isn’t your thing, staff can arrange a car and driver at a very reasonable daily rate, and the bright lights of Seminyak are just fifteen minutes away. Guests at Villa Kudus also have complimentary membership of the Canggu Club, Bali’s most prestigious sports and leisure club, for the duration of their stay.
Crossing the threshold of Villa Kudus via authentic Balinese Hindu temple doors, and following stone steps over a tranquil goldfish pond, guests enter the main joglo, an enormous, air-conditioned pavilion which houses the lounge, dining, bar and entertainment area, and are immediately transported into a world where traditional Indonesian architecture meets sumptuous interiors to create a truly opulent and unique villa experience. Surrounded by glass doors, the living pavilion offers views over the garden and pool, while a raised terrace provides the perfect space for open-air meals, which are served from the kitchen below.
Stairs lead down from the joglo to a grassed area where friezes depicting scenes from Java’s most famous temple, Borobodur decorate the walls. Two of the five bedrooms are housed in one joglo and overlook the garden. The master bedroom and two additional bedrooms form an L shape around the swimming pool area.
The owners of this magnificent villa have a passion for mountain climbing and the five bedrooms – all of which are furnished with king-size beds, offer both air-conditioning and ceiling fans, feature hand-selected pieces of art, merbau-wood flooring topped with Asian rugs, and have opulent ensuites – are named after famous Indonesian peaks.
A wonderful sense of light and space pervades the enormous living pavilion at Villa Kudus, which upholds the villa’s benchmark of style and taste with exquisite antiques and ornaments from around the globe. Encased with glass doors, this pavilion can be opened up to allow guests to luxuriate in the balmy tropical air, or can be closed for air-conditioned comfort. At the centre of the pavilion, below a magnificent pair of chandeliers, two oversized sofas and four armchairs encircle a coffee table crafted from recycled boat timber. Above, wooden beams softly draped with flowing white fabric support the intricately carved ceiling which represents the seven levels of heaven. A teak dining table for ten stands to one side of the pavilion, adjacent to the bar area. To the other side, a freestanding bookshelf separates the television area where movies can be enjoyed on a 46-inch plasma screen from an antique daybed.
Cocktail hour can be any time of the day at Villa Kudus. The bar has a double fridge, a Nespresso coffee machine and ample glassware. The piece de la resistance here is the dumbwaiter, which transports food from the kitchen below.
The kitchen at Villa Kudus is lined with walls of Indian stone. Two glass doors make it a bright, cool and airy space. Guests can comfortably perch on one of the five bar stools for an informal meal or snack whilst enjoying the serenity of the garden. The kitchen is equipped with gas and electric ovens, a giant refrigerator, expansive stovetop, a wall of built-in glass cupboards and all the mod cons that you would expect to find in such a well-appointed villa.
On the stone terrace adjacent to the living pavilion, an outdoor dining table for ten is ideally located for alfresco dining, whether it be a long lazy lunch or a delicious dinner under the stars. Take advantage of the barbecue here for some fresh grilled seafood or a traditional satay.
Poolside relaxation at Villa Kudus can be enjoyed in the covered balé – an excellent spot for a massage – or on one of the ergonomically designed sun loungers on the verandas of all the guest bedrooms. And in front of the master bedroom, surrounded by a wonderful array of tropical plants, is an L-shaped couch and a coffee table perfectly shaded by a large umbrella and perfectly situated for some quiet downtime.
Villa Kudus is in an idyllic location, discreetly tucked away, yet only 2 minutes’ walk from Berawa Beach in Canggu, south-west Bali, an area traditionally known for its rice paddies but more recently home to many new cafes and warungs that are popping up in this increasingly fashionable area.
Berawa Beach has some of Bali’s best surf breaks and even if you’re not a keen board rider it’s still a magical spot to watch the waves at any time of the day. Best of all, a stroll along the beach will bring you to some of the most famous restaurants and bars on the island. Head north and you’ll be on your way to some family friendly fun at the Beach House on Echo Beach where you can select your seafood and watch it being grilled right before your eyes. For the more adventurous walker, head south towards Seminyak and you’ll be sipping cocktails at Mozaic Beach Club, W Hotel, Potato Head Beach Club or just a few hundred metres further and you’ll be at the iconic La Lucciola Restaurant or the ultra-trendy Ku De Ta.
The newly opened Bali Equestrian Centre is a mere five minute drive away, as is the The Canggu Club (of which guests have complimentary membership). Sophisticated Seminyak, with its world-class dining, bars, cafes, spas and shopping, is just a 15-minute drive away.
