Tropical Living with Exotic Greenery
Wednesday, 22 Feb 2012
Enveloped by productive rice terraces in the village of Canggu, Villa Kharista is a sprawling complex that features five Balinese-styled holiday retreats. Each one has been designed to harmonize with the surrounding environment whereby guests can unwind and reconnect with nature.
Anticipating the needs of honeymooners, couples as well as families and small groups, Villa Kharista has a choice of one, two and three bedroom villa categories. Each self-contained compound has been named after a flower in a conscious effort to heighten awareness towards the beauty of the local landscape.
Serene Rural Location
Villa Kharista is located in the semi-rural village of Canggu just minutes from the popular surf beach of Batu Bolong. It is a place where life moves at a gentle pace and is free from the complications of the modern world. Tanah Lot sea temple, a spiritually revered site for followers of the Hindu faith, is just a 20 minute drive up the coast.
For social interaction, the Canggu Club is a nearby leisure centre with high-end sporting facilities, a restaurant, pub and activities to occupy children. Echo Beach is also just a short car ride away for an evening of great food and entertainment. And the vibrant lifestyle district of Seminyak satisfies all shopping, wining and dining desires.
Spacious Tropical Living
Villa Kharista has been created with meticulous care to make the most of Bali's tropical climate and encourage the healthy attributes of outdoor living. All villa compounds feature a private swimming pool and traditional lounging pavilion set within a terraced garden of exotic greenery.
Every villa has a separate thatched roof dining pavilion that is semi-open and exposed to the elements. Decorated in timeless timber furnishings, it is a delightful space that sets the mood for informal mealtime gatherings. A well-equipped kitchen and service area is cleverly concealed at the back each structure.
Each bedroom at Villa Kharista is an air-conditioned sanctuary with a decor of classically inspired teak furnishings and a canopied bed for nights of dream induced slumber. Elegant en-suite bathrooms with separate bath tub and shower facilities ensure pleasure filled bathing rituals.
One Bedroom Villa (Jasmine & Orchid)
The tastefully appointed one bedroom villa category has been inspired by the composition of a traditional Balinese home. There are distinct spaces to sleep, swim, relax and dine as per the principles of local architecture.
The bedroom is a thatched roof structure that is separate from the open-styled dining/living pavilion. Both have been designed to blend seamlessly into the surrounding environment.
With its decorative stone water features, the swimming pool provides a welcome relief from the heat of the day. While a shady gazebo in a corner of the garden is cushioned for comfort or a lazy afternoon nap.
Two Bedroom Villa (Lotus & Lavender)
The two bedroom villa is a charming retreat set within a terraced garden that showcases gentle lotus ponds and stoneworks honouring the island's artistic heritage.
Both bedrooms are suitably distanced for complete adult privacy. Each has its own terrace overlooking the mature garden. Designed for leisurely family meals, the dining pavilion incorporates a modern kitchen facility hidden at the back.
Relaxation revolves around the swimming pool and a traditionally thatched gazebo that is cooled by the breeze as it drifts over the neighbouring rice fields. This villa is completely cocooned from hustle and bustle of mainstream tourism.
Three Bedroom Villa (Flamboyan)
The three bedroom villa is the perfect holiday residence for an extended family travelling together. The sheer size of this Balinese villa ensures that neither personal space nor privacy is compromised throughout the entire duration of stay.
Blessed with refreshing views of the surrounding rice fields, Flamboyan has a large freeform swimming pool edged by a sundeck and shady pergola. There is also a cushioned gazebo in a secluded corner of the garden to laze the day away.
The open-style dining pavilion has a fully equipped kitchen tucked neatly out of sight. This thatched roof structure includes an air-conditioned study that also functions as a quiet sitting room for curling up in comfort with a good book.
Modern Home Conveniences
Villa Kharista caters to the needs of international guests with a comprehensive selection of modern home conveniences. Each villa is facilitated with telephone and internet access for practical communications with family and friends as well as to handle business issues back at home. Satellite television with a DVD entertainment system is another feature that is perfect for quiet nights spent relaxing and taking it easy.
Villa Services & Facilities
A professionally trained team of housekeeping, gardening and pool maintenance staff service Villa Kharista on a daily basis. A choice of American or Continental Breakfast is prepared every morning at a preferred time depending on villa occupancy. In addition, there is around the clock security for peace of mind and a spacious communal car parking area for guests who decide to organize their own vehicles and transportation.
