The Hotel: Villa Sandhya
Villa Sandhya invites holidaymakers to indulge in an exotic getaway surrounded by film-like scenery. Settle into a private pool villa nestled within manicured gardens complete with artisan stone sculpture, just a short stroll away from Bali’s latest hot spot - Echo Beach. Dine out at one of many new and happening restaurants or hit the Echo Beach House for a drink.
Stay as a group of friends or travel with the family in a Two-Bedroom Villa with spacious bedrooms and living areas. The living and dining area flows through to a turquoise mosaic-tiled pool, with padded sun lounges to relax on beneath the warm Balinese sun. The master bedroom, located on the bottom floor, boasts a marble en suite with a sunken bathtub big enough for two, that overlooks the cascading greenery outdoors. Each bedroom has a flat-screen cable TV and beds made with imported linens. Groupies can cook up a storm thanks to the kitchenette, complete with a full-size fridge, microwave, and filter coffee machine.

The Area: Canggu, Bali
With its location set in greener than green rice paddies far from the crowds of central Bali, Canggu offers travellers a taste of the island’s yesteryear where life chugs along at a slower pace and souls can find their centres in serenity. Framed by black sand beaches to one side and rolling pastures to the other, Canggu stretches gracefully above Seminyakto mystical Tanah Lot, the shrine of many sunset postcard snaps, and thanks to its laidback energy is swiftly becoming the up-and-coming place to stay on the Indonesian isle. Canggu offers all the things there are to be enjoyed about Bali without the frenetic pace of Kuta, but the tourist hub is still not far away for those who wish to dabble in both worlds.
Feel like the only person in the world by delving into a good book by the private pool, taking a stroll in the nearby rice paddies or checking out the black sand beach, or rev up the energy by shopping in Legian, partying in Kuta or dining in Jimbaran Bay. Enjoy Seminyak, one of the more posh areas on the island filled with boutiques, world-class restaurants and picturesque beaches, or journey to Ubud to check out artisan workshops, art markets or the famous monkey forest.
The religious site of Tanah Lot is also nearby, and is best viewed at sunset for vistas that will forever stay imprinted on memories. Young ones also couldn’t pass up a trip to Waterbom Park for a day of slipping, sliding and splashing around in the plentiful pools and lush gardens.
