As far as tropical island living goes, it doesn’t get much better than Villa Arika. This luxurious 4-bedroom villa in Canggu sits on 1.2 hectares of prime beachfront property and features sprawling manicured gardens. Sleeps up to 8 Guests.view
Hidden among rolling rice terraces and lush gardens, yet still close to some of the best restaurants, bars and shops on the island, Villa Frangipani is a tranquil escape from the hectic pace of city life. This beautiful villa was designed by the same team that created the Four Seasons Resort in Bali, and it features traditional Balinese design elements like soaring bamboo ceilings, a seamless blend of indoor and outdoor spaces, attractive water features and vibrant tropical flowers and greenery. With 4-bedrooms, including a separate garden bungalow overlooking a river, this is the ideal hideaway for families, groups or couples.
As soon as you step through the Balinese gates that lead into Villa Frangipani, you enter a world of natural beauty. Everywhere you look you see different shades of green in the tropical bushes and trees, manicured lawns, flower beds and lotus ponds. Follow the stepping stone path across the fish ponds, and you arrive at the spacious indoor living and dining area. Here antique furniture and soft lighting create a homey ambiance, and sliding glass doors open onto a covered patio with comfortable daybeds and chairs.
Take a few steps down from the patio and you’re at the aquamarine pool, surrounded by fragrant frangipani trees that offer cool shade on hot days. For those who like to explore, the verdant lawn below is surrounded by walls of trees and flowers, and the garden bale is perfect for meditation, afternoon naps or little ones who want to play in the small treefort-like room above.
The main building of Villa Frangipani is home to the spacious lounge area with its large windows, comfy sofas and daybeds, satellite TV, DVD player and CD stereo system. The owners have furnished the villa with lovely antique wooden furniture and artefacts sourced from around Indonesia, which adds a touch of the traditional to an otherwise modern space. Fronting the living area is a spacious covered patio with a dining room table that can seat 8 people, a breakfast nook that can seat 4, and a relaxing lounge area with benches and a daybed for relaxing in the fresh air overlooking the pool. Behind the dining area there is a fully stocked kitchen and a small laundry room with a washing machine and dryer.
The master bedroom is conveniently connected to the living and dining area. Featuring a beautiful wooden four-poster bed draped in mosquito netting, a daybed strewn with colorful cushions next to windows that overlook the pool and garden, a walk-in closet made out of striking antique doors, and a large outdoor garden bathroom with a huge sunken circular bathtub, a stand-alone shower next to lotus ponds and tropical flowers, double wash basins and a stone wall covered in climbing vines for privacy.
The two guest suites are on the opposite side of the living area, and they both have high ceilings, large windows with elegant Roman blinds, antique wooden twin beds with mosquito nets, and air conditioning and ceiling fans. These rooms share a large bathroom with twin wash basins, frosted windows, a large terrazzo bathtub and shower. Between the two guest rooms there is also a cozy study with a sizeable wooden writing desk, a bookshelf, and a set of drawers with soft lamps and a Buddha statue for peace and clarity.
Nestled away in one corner of the garden at Villa Frangipani, you’ll find the private guest pavilion overlooking the gardens and close to the river that runs along the edge of the property. This stand-alone space has its own covered terrace where you can watch birds and butterflies flit by, as well as a large bed with mosquito net and an ensuite bathroom that is partially open to the fresh air and tropical greenery.
One of the most striking features of Villa Frangipani is the huge turquoise pool made lined with volcanic stones and surrounded by overhanging trees and plants and antique stone statues. Sun loungers and umbrellas allow you to sunbathe between dips in the refreshing water, and lanterns light up the space at night so you can float underneath the stars.
Surrounding the main villa are lovely gardens awash in vibrant flowers and attractive trees and bushes. If you cross the manicured lawn, you’ll reach the wooden lumbung and bale, where you can enjoy soothing massages below or head to the small room above the reclining platform to take in the natural beauty of the garden from a different perspective.

Villa Frangipani is located in the lush and tranquil setting of the rice paddies of southwest Bali. Apart from the wonderful rural countryside of rice-paddies and Balinese villages, Villa Frangipani is also set close to the coastline so you can equally enjoy the surrounding beaches. There are a number of great cafes and organic eateries around the area.
Its location is only 40 minutes from the international airport, 15-20 minutes to the restaurants, shops and nightlife of Seminyak/Legian and only 10 minutes from the island's pre-eminent signature golf course, the Nirwana Bali Golf Course. The golf course can perhaps boast the most beautiful location of any golf course in the world.
