Families and groups of friends can’t go wrong with a holiday at Villa Puri Nirwana, a sprawling mansion located directly on the sand between Sanur and Candidasa and across the road from the Bali Safari & Marine Park. With 6 bedrooms, 3 living rooms, a kid’s playground, games room, spa, large private pool and expansive manicured lawns, there is plenty of room here to gather with loved ones over meals, drinks, conversation and games, or find a quiet corner of your own to relax and reflect.
Your Villa Puri Nirwana experience starts when you enter the lush gardens and set your eyes upon the gorgeous white colonial facade with sweeping verandahs and wooden shutters. The main garden is surrounded by green lawns, frangipani trees, and tranquil water features, and it is fronted by a long T-shaped swimming pool that overlooks the Indian Ocean. There is also a separate spa pavilion in the gardens.
Throughout the villa, you will find colourful artworks from the owner’s personal collection, Asian-inspired furnishings, glass lanterns, and modern amenities like air-conditioning, state-of-the-art entertainment systems, luxurious toiletries and free Wi-Fi. No detail has been spared here, from the large doors that open to allow sea breezes to flow in, the exquisite marble floors and oversized stone bathtubs. As an added bonus, this is one of the few villas in Bali that is wheelchair accessible with wide doorways and an elevator that goes between the floors.
You may have to fight over who gets the palatial Master Bedroom on the ground floor with its views over the gardens, pool and ocean, king-sized bed, ceiling draped in Balinese fabrics and massive bathroom with a rain shower, bathtub, and its own spa area with a massage bed. However, the Ocean Suite is just as spacious and stylish with it’s lofty upstairs location, wooden shutters that allow sea breezes to wash in, open living area and circular lounge that is perfect for sundowner drinks.
The four Garden Suites are ideal for little ones or visiting guests, and each looks out onto the gardens awash in flowers and trees. Two guest bedrooms are on the ground floor, while the other two are upstairs, and each features a plush king-sized bed, large verandah, and black and white tiled bathrooms with marble floors and walk-in showers.
You could spend days here cooling off in the pool, playing friendly games of billiards in the games room, napping in the bright and breezy rooms, dining on gourmet meals prepared by the warm and welcoming staff or indulging in divine spa treatments. However, the amusement park next door offers hours of fun, the long black sand beach is great for long walks on the sand, forays into the small fishing village of Cucukan offer a glimpse of the local way of life, and the accommodating staff can also arrange transportation and tours to some of Bali’s most spectacular locations.
Whether you’re a couple looking for a unique private escape or a large group of friends seeking space to move around and plenty to entertain, Villa Puri Nirwana makes for a memorable getaway for your next holiday to Bali.
