Elegant, inviting and superbly scenic, Villa Kamaniiya is a luxurious three-bedroom property perched high on a ridge above a lush river valley in Sayan, Ubud. The infinity pool that seems to plunge into the jungle below is enough to take your breath away, but this sprawling one-hectare estate has much more to offer. Walk through the grounds and you will find a vast fish pond and waterfall, pretty open-air pavilions with sweeping views, and sleek spaces outfitted with contemporary furnishings and amenities. Close to the heart of Ubud, yet set on its own peaceful and private corner of paradise, Villa Kamaniiya impresses at every turn.
Built into the contours of the sloping landscape, Villa Kamaniiya features an array of beautiful spaces and structures that showcase the natural environment. Reclaimed timber and stone echo the surroundings and al fresco areas allow you to immerse yourself in the serenity of the forested river valley. Meticulous attention to detail can be seen in the three spacious suites that serve as tranquil sanctuaries, as well as the living areas that include a poolside pavilion with a media room, a wine cellar with a bar and lounge, peaceful yoga and meditation spaces, and relaxation bales that blend into the gardens.
The luxe living pavilion sits in the centre of the property between the fish pond and the infinity pool. A covered terrace offers soft sofas that overlook the pool and sundeck, and inside the air-conditioned lounge and media room provide cool spaces to relax during the heat of the day. The dining room is located in a separate pavilion and has French doors that open to the garden. This pavilion also houses the cave-like wine cellar with an intimate bar and lounge seating. On the other side of the pond, the billiards room stands in its own building and can be converted to an extra bedroom, meeting room, or dressing room for weddings and events.
Situated next to the pool and living pavilion, the Anandata Room is Villa Kamaniiya’s magnificent master suite. Timber wall panels, a plush king-sized bed and soft lighting create a warm ambiance. The terrace offers sweeping views of the valley and includes a unique seating pod, and the outdoor bathing area has a private Jacuzzi and outdoor shower. There is also a generously sized ensuite bathroom with a rain shower and stone bathtub.
On the other side of the pool from the master suite a tiered pavilion houses two guest bedrooms. The upper room is slightly bigger and has a breezy terrace and beautiful ensuite bathroom with a rain shower and bathtub. The smaller room below is decked out in dark timber and has an ensuite bathroom with a rain shower.
With vast manicured lawns and lush gardens, Villa Kamaniiya offers plenty of space to enjoy the tropical environment and warm weather. Winding pathways lead to open-air structures like the treehouse and relaxation bale, both of which offer incredible views of exotic flowers and foliage. An semi-covered al fresco dining area with a wood-fired oven provides a charming space for informal meals, and a hidden alcove below the living pavilion makes for a divine spot for morning coffee or sundowner drinks. Then there is the stunning infinity pool perched on the edge of the ridge, which is sure to be a much sought-after gathering spot.
