The Arsana Estate

5 Bedrooms | Rainforest Retreat | Tabanan, Bali
From USD 680 / Night

Escape to your own sprawling tropical paradise in a traditional village on Bali’s southwest coast at The Arsana Estate, an elegant 5-bedroom luxury villa that is perfect for families, large groups, retreats, or events. The name ‘Arsana’ comes from the Sanskrit word for ‘flow’, and it refers to the winding Sungi River at the bottom of the property and the way that the self-contained living and bedroom pavilions spread out among the manicured gardens and spill down the lush hillside. Peaceful, picturesque, and boasting plenty of space, The Arsana Estate is one of Bali’s true hidden jewels.


To get to The Arsana Estate, you leave the hustle and bustle of south Bali and make your way through charming rural villages with Balinese temples, small warungs, and rice farmers tending their crops. The villa itself is situated on 2 hectares of land, and it is surrounded by emerald green lawns, tropical gardens, a flowing river and rice paddies as far as the eye can see.

The villa is made up of individual pavilions, each with huge glass windows, ironwood roof shingles, and rich wood accents. Water features like lily ponds and waterfalls abound, and a huge swimming pool looks out over the beautiful gardens. Inside you will find colourful artworks and furnishings, top-of-the-line equipment like satellite TVs and surround sound systems, and plenty of space to gather with loved ones or find a private corner to yourself.

Although the villa is set up with absolutely everything you need, you’ll probably want to get out and explore the small laneways and rice paddy paths in the village, as well as the rugged coastline, surf breaks, golf course and famed Tanah Lot temple nearby.

You enter The Arsana Estate through a palm fringed courtyard and make your way up a wide stairway to the U-shaped main villa pavilion. On either side of the entrance hall and open-air terrace, there are gorgeous wings wrapped in glass windows and doors. One wing houses the living room with its plush sofas and garden views, as well as the black granite bar with cushioned bar stools and red lanterns, and the TV room with a 60-inch TV, DVD player, movie library, sofas and beanbag chairs.

The opposite wing has a dining room with a glass-topped table for 12, blue cushioned chairs, and an al fresco breakfast terrace with a table for 8 under a pergola draped in white blossoms. The fully stocked kitchen is also in this wing, and it has an additional bar with 8 bar stools that doubles as a cocktail locale or breakfast spot. Next to the dining room you will find the self-contained games room with a pool table, board games, and comfy arm chairs.

Each of the bedroom suites at The Arsana Estate is housed in its own stand-alone pavilion and features a different colour theme. The Master Bedroom is outfitted in yellow and features a king-sized bed, a study with glass walls, a TV room with a daybed that can sleep two children comfortably, and an ensuite bathroom with a huge sunken tub, monsoon rain shower and glass doors that open to the breezes. In addition, there is a lounge area in the front of the suite with a sofa that looks out over the garden and river valley.

The Arsana is located 11km from Tanah Lot sea temple, in the sleepy village in the Tabanan Regency. This beautiful rural area of rice fields and jungle-clad river valleys, is a nature lovers’ paradise. The area is great for cycling (bicycles are available at the villa for guest use) and, by taking advantage of this facility, guests can enjoy a privileged insight into the agricultural, religious and daily life of the villagers. ‘Nirwana Bali Golf Course’ (10km) was designed by Greg Norman and voted the number one golf course in Asia. The coastline (11km) is rugged and the beaches more suited to surfing than swimming.

  1. One of the most magical places

    We had the pleasure of staying at the Arsana Estate for 5 nights 5-10 June. It was one of the most magical places I have stayed at. The estate is so spacious. From the moment we arrived at the Villa, we were treated like royalty (and we were treated like this, right up until our waves goodbye). All of the staff enjoy their jobs and it shows! We travelled with 9 adults and a 3 year old and a 6 month old. The staff were all very helpful with the children. Tia was amazing. Always offering to hold our little girl, whilst we we eating our meals. (Thank you). The meals were amazing (thanks chef). breakfast, lunch and dinner was prepared everyday at whatever time we requested to eat. The whole estate was cleaned every morning before we woke and the pool area all set up with towels etc for the day. On our 3rd day, was the most special day of our stay. Our wedding day! One we will remember forever! I can't thank everyone enough for the effort and input to make our day so special! All the staff worked so hard., from setting up tables, cleaning the grounds and the list goes on. Our wedding dinner , prepared by Arsana was absolutely Divine! After our dinner, we were surprised by a lovely gift. Balinese Dance show, Thank you ever so much! Amazing. Each Villa on the estate was immaculate. The bathrooms with the opening doors to the pond are so beautiful! My little boy loved the trampoline and also loved fishing in the fishponds (thanks guys). I really look forward to coming back and staying at the Arsana Estate again. I wish we didn't have to leave. We can honestly say...........One of the best places we have stayed at....Thank you x

  1. The Beauty of Bali while enjoying life in a Villa

    We spent a whole week together with friends and we now long for a life in a Villa. What a site, with the bedrooms, the common living area to enjoy a drink, to dine, to chill to whatever you can think about when your relaxing at home, well now your relaxing with family and/or friends in Bali. Also the pool area, spread out below the living quarters, surrounded by all kind of local vegetation, is to die for, if your in need of laying back, reading a book or just plainly doing nothing. What to say about the staff, the eternal smiles of their faces, pretty much always anticipating your needs and the food the Arsana Estate chef prepares (whatever you want!!!) is absolutely wonderful. all the attention to detail is in play here and would recommend, to any group of friends and/or family that wish to visit Bali together, that they make make this their nest that they will not soon forget. What else to say, we had a memorable week.

  1. Iconic 5 star hideaway Bali villa with it all

    We have visited Bali many times over the last 15 years and the Arsana Estate is as good as it gets for a few or a large group of family and/or friends. First, it is a large piece of scenic land that descends to a river valley, and where the owners have carefully designed and developed everything over recent years. Each independent villa comprises a decadent bedroom while the huge main living space includes dining areas, lounges, a professional bar and a high tech super comfortable media room. The infinity pool is long yet child friendly with ample space to relax, and we had fabulous lunches and drinks down there. Then there are the other recreation areas such as football goals, basketball hoops, fruit gardens and little bales (bungalows) for Sunset Drinks and/or massage! Finally, the level of service is extremely high with experienced staff from top hotels as well as the best villa chef (who also happens to be one of Indonesia's TV celebrity chefs!) producing the highest quality meals, and all of the above is at incredibly reasonable prices. We highly recommend it for small or large groups, including families as the owners clearly have thought and catered for all. Bravo - James Bond would be quite at home in this iconic hideaway Bali villa with it all!

  1. Tranquil surroundings, great service, beautiful villa.....the real Bali

    We have now stayed at Arsana 3 times. I cannot express how awesome the place is. You arrive at the airport, are picked up by the villa car/driver (which you can use through your stay) and as soon as you arrive at the massive grounds, you instantly relax. We love the place so much that we rarely leave during our stay. Beautiful pool, audio visual room and billiards table keep everyone busy enough. And the food is all cooked by a 5 star chef (you can choose off the menu or ask them to make anything you feel like....tell them in the morning and they go shopping for local fresh food). If you do want to go into the hustle of Seminyak, the villa driver can get you there in around 30 to 40 minutes. You can also play golf nearby at Bali's best course (Nirvana, around 15 min away). The villa itself is very affordable, especially with the clever design of each room which can accommodate parents and 2 or 3 kids. Can't wait to go again.

  1. An outstanding villa with first class service

    Wow ! Wow ! Wow ! An amazing villa that truly accommodated to the needs of the 12 of us ! The bedrooms are independent villas ( similar to the ones in Datai in Langkawi ) our children stayed in the orange room which had 3 bunk beds & 2 single beds and and when we walked in, you can hear the exclamations of excitement and screams from the children. With the adjoined red room , you get a huge king size bed which my daughter had her blissful nights of sleep. Whilst you rent the accommodation similar to most independent ones, with Arsana Estate , you get the option to have their staffs provide meals for you on a daily basis like a full fledged hotel. The meals which were prepared nightly ( we did not even bother to venture out to the restaurants ) to both the children and adults were soooo delicious ( we had Indonesian food most of the times ) you must order the grilled ribs which were to die for, suckling pig was such a treat and the beef rending , gado gado and pomelo salad were favorites of my family. They have a great snooker room, a very impressive TV room, where we had numerous nights watching movies and having pop corns. During the day, other than spending a few hours out in Seminyak shopping or gallery viewing in Ubud ( both about 30-40 mins drive away and the villa can organize a driver who can drive y around should you wish to venture out ) you will find that you would rather return to the calm serenity which Arsana offers and just relax , watch the sun set in the elevated pavilion, served by their wonderful staffs , a platter of snacks and champagne . What more can you ask for ..... This was a perfect gateway !

  1. Completely speechless

    A huge thank you to Pak Dandi, Made and all of the staff for the most amazing stay at the Arsana Estate! We held our wedding at this villa (60 people cocktail style) and no words can describe how perfect of a setting it was, it was like something from a movie set! We were completely speechless when we first arrived and couldn't believe how gorgeous the estate was, and our guests were blown away as well. The level of service we experienced from all of the staff was 5 star, and the chef, Ketut, created some amazing feasts for us. I highly recommend the Arsana Estate not only for a wedding, but for a family holiday or reunion, staff workshop / team building event or a getaway with a group of friends. Thank you again for a wedding (and holiday) of a lifetime....we will be back!
