For those who prefer a bit of peace and quiet on holiday rather than the hustle and bustle of busy tourist hotspots, Tirta Nila Beach House is tranquil respite from the maddening crowds. This chic 4-bedroom villa is located next to the sea in Candidasa along Bali’s eastern coast, and it offers uninterrupted views of the sea and Bali’s offshore islands. Open spaces are key here with big breezy rooms, wooden balconies and terraces, emerald green lawns surrounded by tropical foliage, and even a private man-made beach with direct access to the water. If it’s sun, sea, sand and a little serenity you’re after, Tirta Nila is your spot.
Step onto the property and you will find lush gardens interspersed with Buddhist and Hindu statues, and three conjoined pavilions designed with modern tropical architecture and decor. The main pavilion houses the living and dining room, which is a great meeting spot as it has high vaulted ceilings, soft sofas, a teak dining table that can seat 10, and floor-to-ceiling sliding doors that can be opened to allow sea breezes in or closed for air-conditioning. The living and dining room also lead out directly to the gardens and pool.
Outside you can grab a sun lounger on the timber sun deck and settle in with a cool drink and good book, or take leisurely dips in your private infinity pool as you gaze out at fishing boats plying the waves. Fronting the pool is a man-made elevated beach with a relaxation bale at one end and an open-air dining pavilion overlooking the water at the other end. There is also a long stone terrace here with additional sun loungers and umbrellas and steps that lead down to the sea.
One of the most appealing aspects of Tirta Nila Beach House is that every bedroom here offers views of the coast and sea. There are two master bedrooms next to the living room, one on the ground floor with access to the gardens and pool and an ensuite bathroom with an outdoor rain shower, and another on the first floor with a gorgeous wrap-around balcony. The two guest bedrooms are located in the back of the living room, and they offer sea views from either the balcony or terrace. All the bedrooms feature king-sized beds, large windows, ensuite bathrooms, and walk-in wardrobes.
During your time at Tirta Nila Beach House, you will never have to step foot outside (unless of course you want to explore Candidasa and the lovely surroundings), as the villa has everything you need to feel right at home. In the main villa pavilion you will find a fully stocked Western kitchen, a media room equipped with a 50″ TV, DVD and satellite channels, and the staff quarters and kitchen where the chef will prepare delicious gourmet meals for you. In addition, the talented team here led by Pak Gusti will make sure that you never want for anything whether it be spa treatments, special menus, tours, activities or even babysitting service.
