Villa Niloufar Canggu Bali Individual Villa Compound - Canggu - Price range: US$ 750 - US$ 1000
The splendid five-bedroom property known as Villa Niloufar, meaning "LOTUS" in Persian, rests in blissful seclusion in a rural setting in southwest Bali. It is an ideal destination for guests who want to escape and enjoy relaxation, fitness, and wellbeing within a stunning location.
Niloufar is just twenty minutes drive from the trendy and buzzing area of Seminyak/Oberoi, where Balis most popular beaches, chic boutiques, excellent restaurants and fashionable bars are located. The nearest beach, Canggu, is a short 5-minute drive away. The nearest golf course, Nirvana (designed by Greg Norman), is 10 minutes away.
The villa boasts a 17 x 5 metre swimming pool and a fully equipped gym. The meandering Buwit River borders the villas expansive gardens; the property is surrounded by nature and blessed with beautiful views and riverside trails.
Villa Niloufar blends its exceptional location with outstanding facilities, service and privacy. Embracing the trend of Destination villas, the property has been designed to contain as many features and amenities as possible, complemented by top levels of service, intended to ensure that guests feel no need to go out for top quality dining and entertainment.
By using the natural elements of the land as architecture, the villa has been carefully designed to promote the spirit of ecological responsibility with minimal impact on the environment. International architect, Gary Fell, generates solutions that blend style with nature. Rooftop water-lily ponds serve the double purpose of being aesthetically pleasing to the eye while, at the same time, providing a natural cooling system as each roof acts as a dense thermal insulator. The swimming pool employs an advanced ioniser filter system, and a water recycling system allows waste water to be reused in the gardens. The villa with its two roof top water gardens, is cleverly landscaped into the contours of the hill.
Villa Niloufar is approached via a spacious car park with a security post and an openwork metal pivot gate. Guests will then walk past the first of the two, stunning rooftop lily ponds as they descend a stone stairway into the main, open-air entrance area with its natural stone walls. From here, the full visual impact of the villa takes effect. Eyes will be drawn along the length of an elevated, ornamental pond, past immaculate lawns towards the swimming pool, the river and rice terrace beyond. A pair of welcome statues from the island of Nias rest in front of the entrance hall, and from here guests will look across to the main living and dining area capped with another lotus pond roof.
