Great villa !
Away from busy Seminyak, but close enough to go for the day to shop or night for dinner , and then escape to peace and quiet in Canggu!
Great restaurants nearby too (walking)
Had a fantastic stay here with friends last week. Beautiful and well-equipped villa, with clean, spacious rooms and airy communal areas. Pool is lovely (though I did not see a hot tub mentioned by another reviewer). The villa is well-located with the beach a five minute walk, and breakfast spots a ten minute walk. Staff are lovely, too! We had a wonderfully restful stay.
Fantastic villa literally 3 min walk to the beach. Top end furnishings and tasteful design. Loved the Sonos speaker! Household staff were all really friendly and professional. The villa manager always responded quickly and the housekeeper (who’s around most of the day) kept the place super clean. Airport pick up was seamless. Highly recommend the villa!
We stayed here in January and then came back a second time and luckily we were able to get another booking (It's very popular for obvious reasons). The location is just perfect, and the Villa itself has everything you could want plus more at a standard that you usually get in 5 star hotels. It can get hot in Bali, but as soon as you walk through the big timber door the temperature feels like it's dropped about 10 degrees, with beautiful ocean breezes making the open planned living areas delightful. The marble floors are heaven to walk on, and the high timber lined ceilings are amazing. The pool is the perfect temperature and the beds are the most comfortable I have ever slept on! The staff couldn't be more friendly and helpful.It's simply a great villa.
We have just returned from one amazing week at Villa Karang. Canggu is still a sleepy and relaxed resort village on the south coast of the Indonesian island of Bali and is just away from the craziness of its neighbor Seminyak. It's surrounded by terraced rice paddies, roaming cows and is known for beaches like Canggu and Echo, The villa itself was just beautiful, you enter through a large timber door (i mean large and stunning) into your own private oasis. A living/dining/kitchen all open plan with souring ceilings sits beside the perfect pool and timber deck. An indoor garden with waterfalls and stepping stones sits through the centre of the villa with stunning plantings of frangipanni and other tropical delights. Ani the housekeeper arrives each day at 8am and goes about servicing the 3 bedrooms 2 with huge en suites and the main with stunning outdoor bathroom. The beds were divine with the best quality sheeting and pillows and the furnishings and artwork in the villa also carefully chosen and just lovely. We ate a buffet breakfast each morning directly opposite at the Haven Suites and on another morning we walked to Echo Beach about 30 minutes (keep walking until you reach the temple and there is a ledge you can carefully cross straight into the restaurant area) and sat watching the surfers and the waves, again just perfect. These restaurants are also fantastic for sunset cocktails and dinner. If you do not want to walk back, simply head up the street and there is fixed price drivers to take you back about 5 minute drive.
Location: Berawa. Great shops and restaurants, close to the Finns Beach Club, Canggu Club and water park, 100 metres to Berawa beach, lots of locals swim and eat here and their satays are delicious and cheap. Cross the river at this point and walk up to lots of little bars, beach chairs for hire and beach warungs. Turn right from the villa and just up the road and on the bend a great little bar for a cold Bintang and watch the world go by.
If you want to eat in, Bali has a great delivery service (go=jerk) from most restaurants.
The kids enjoyed the movie room with large screen tv and the best lounge ever to sink into.
Agus the manager is always a phone call away and will pop in from time to time
We loved Villa Karang and will be back very soon. PS. We miss you Ani. xx
We had a great week at Villa Karang. The 3 bedroom Villa is beautifully appointed and designed for a relaxing break. The local restaurants had amazing food and the beach, which was also just a short stroll away was an amazing spot to take in the sunset. We will definately be back.
We were honoured to be some of the first guests to stay at the wonderful Villa Karang. The place has been built with an incredible amount of consideration and style. Every aspect of the construction is finely built and incorporates the Balinese style and manner of hospitality with all the comforts- a fully furnished kitchen, pool, loungers, king size bedding and bathroom. It is clean, relaxing and a refuge from the sometimes crowded streets of Bali. It is also in a great location, just five minutes walk from the beach and a choice of lovely cafes. If you are looking for a relaxing holiday, this is the place to stay.'
