Villa Capung a luxury 3-bedroom villa in Uluwatu is the perfect hideaway for surfers, golfers or anyone else looking for a bit of luxury on the Bukit at affordable prices. This gorgeous villa rests on the edge of a cliff overlooking Jimbaran Bay and the coastline of the Bukit Peninsula, and it is just minutes from some of the best surf breaks in Southeast Asia, world-class golf courses and superlative beaches, seafood restaurants and cafes. Yet despite being so close to so many attractions, you still have your own secluded slice of paradise where you can switch off and enjoy the scenery and serenity.
Your first glimpse of Villa Capung is the beautiful lotus pond that stretches along one side of the open-air living and dining space. Follow the stepping stones across the pond and you arrive in the light and airy living area, where you can plunk down on the soft red sofa and enjoy a fruity welcome drink while looking out over the glittering turquoise pool and the deep blue waters of the Indian Ocean.
After you’ve settled in one of the three luxurious suites, head down to the pool for an afternoon of refreshing dips in the crystal clear waters of the pool, or make your way to the cliffside bale (gazebo) to relax with a good book as the ocean breezes wash over you. When the sun starts to sink into the sea, you can enjoy sunset cocktails on the pool deck before indulging in delicious gourmet creations prepared by the talented villa chef. At night soft lights illuminate the pool and living area, and all you can hear is the chirping of frogs and the gentle bubbling sounds of the villa’s water features.
For those who can tear themselves away from the lush gardens and comfy daybeds at Villa Capung, there are many things to do during the day around the Bukit. Hit up the beaches along the coast to ride superior swells at world-famous surf spots like Blue Point, Padang Padang and Dreamland, head to the greens to tee off at the New Kuta Golf Club or the Nusa Dua Golf Club, visit the spectacular Uluwatu temple perched on the edge of a cliff overlooking the crashing surf, or gorge yourself on freshly caught fish and crustaceans at a beachfront restaurant on Jimbaran Beach.
Between the lotus pond and the infinity edge pool lies the breezy living and dining pavilion with its plush sofas, inviting sitting areas and large teak dining table that can seat up to 10 people. This is a great spot for family get togethers, casual cocktails with friends or even lavish dinner parties, as there are plenty of places to relax in this tastefully furnished and decorated space. It also doesn’t hurt that the views overlooking the ocean are absolutely breathtaking, especially in the late afternoon when the setting sun bathes everything in warm orange and red hues.
The massive master suite is a sanctuary of space and light with large windows that face the ocean. An antique four-poster bed beckons with crisp white linens and plush pillows, and there is a peaceful study area with an armchair and footstool and a large writing desk. Storage is never an issue with the spacious walk-in dressing room with matching his and hers closets. The bathroom is just as luxurious, with a walk-in shower, twin wash basins and a stand-alone bathtub that is large enough to fit two people.
Bamboo slatted shades allow light to gently filter into this lovely room with its soaring alang alang roof, polished wooden furniture and comfortable king-sized bed draped in gauzy mosquito netting. One of the most appealing features of the guest suite is its private balcony with outdoor seating that overlooks Jimbaran Bay and the rugged Bukit coastline. There is also an ensuite bathroom with a lovely outdoor shower for bathing under the stars.
The garden suite is tucked away in a corner of the property and offers privacy and seclusion amid nature. The entrance fronts the manicured lawn and sweet-smelling frangipani trees in the garden, and there is a private terrace where you can relax and watch the butterflies flit among the flowers. The twin beds in this suite can be combined to create one king-sized bed, or separated to accommodate two people. In addition, there is a beautiful ensuite bathroom with a walk-in shower, fluffy white towels and colour-themed bathrobes.
After a full day of hitting the waves or visiting fascinating sites around Bali, you may just be in the mood for a quiet night in. If that’s the case, head to the entertainment room where you can spread out on the roomy teak daybed laden in pillows and spend hours in air-conditioned comfort watching movies from the DVD collection, playing board games with friends and family or trying your hand at challenging Playstation Wii games. This room also features a Bose docking station, a laptop computer with free Wi-Fi, a library with an extensive collection of books and magazines,and an ensuite bathroom with a walk-in shower.
The villa grounds provide ample space for lazing by the private infinity pool on sumptuous day beds, or wandering down a set of stone steps that leads down to a lush garden below. Here you will find tropical greenery and flowers, as well as a covered wooden bale with beanbag chairs and a small table. This is the ideal spot for morning meditation sessions, afternoon naps or simply soaking up the sweeping vistas of the ocean and cliffs below.
