Welcome to The Arsana Estate – a spectacular, luxurious, fully staffed, four-bedroom destination villa in the pretty traditional village of Nyambu in south-west Bali. Its contemporary living and sleeping pavilions are spread across two-hectares of terraced gardens bordering a river, according generous space and the luxury of privacy. World-class facilities include an 19-metre pool, a home cinema, games room, gym and yoga studio, massage area, children’s playground and a tennis court, promising the perfect setting for fabulous family holidays, relaxing retreats and intimate weddings and special events for up to 25 people.
The substantial open space within the garden, combined with the grandiose property and its extensive facilities, makes The Arsana Estate the ideal tropical setting for relaxing retreats, intimate weddings, barbecues and other special celebrations. Events can be coordinated by professional outside caterers who have the world-class expertise to prepare a sumptuous feast at the villa, in addition to the coordination of decorations, flowers, lighting, sound systems and entertainment.
From the moment you weave your way past a grove of bamboo and descend the flight of frangipani-fringed steps, the Arsana Estate will have you in its thrall. The sheer amount of space! The ravishing beauty of the architecture! The spectacular setting!
Arsana is Sanskrit for ‘flowing’ – an apt name for this extraordinary two-hectare estate where a cascade of living and sleeping pavilions streams past lotus ponds and water walls down the terraced hillside towards the river rippling on the boundary. A destination in itself, this is a place where one can truly relax and be in the flow. No need to lift a finger here; the highly professional staff will work magic for you behind the scenes. Why even leave the estate when it includes everything you could think of to entertain and enchant?
Lounge by the 19-metre pool overlooking the river, or play pool in the games room. Work up a sweat in the gym or smash it on the tennis court. Enjoy a massage in the spa annexe or watch a movie in the home cinema on the 85-inch TV or drop-down projects screen. Preside over sparking conversation at the head of the five-metre dining table while the accomplished chef serves a gourmet meal. Then retire to one of the four spacious ensuite bedrooms and be lulled to sleep by the soothing sounds of nature.
Everywhere, the design flair and attention to detail is phenomenal. Massive contemporary carpets mix with oriental rugs under a copper canopy of designer lamps. A sophisticated palette of warm greys and soft sand flows through textured linen, latticed teakwood and textured walls. Contemporary paintings complement antique Chinese ceramics, and heritage artefacts sit comfortably alongside hi-tech facilities. The British owner’s passion for Asia shows in carefully curated furniture too, such as burnished lacquerware chests and towering Chinoiserie chairs. Everything is built to the highest specification, with no expense spared.
South-west Bali’s famed black-sand surfing beaches and Canggu’s laid-back café and beach scene may only be a short drive away, and the bright lights of Seminyak reachable within half an hour; but you’re unlikely to want to leave this enchanting tropical paradise.
