VILLA TUKAD was built in 2004 as a unique private villa in a very special location on the edge of a village, next to a river and rice fields. The location is perfect for those seeking a taste of local Balinese culture away from the traffic and noise of the main tourist areas. The villa blends traditional Balinese architecture with other Asian, Western and Moorish designs. The expanding tourist areas of Canggu and Batu Bolong Beach are 10-15 mins away. Here you can find many boutiques, cafes, bars, patisseries, organic markets and supermarkets catering to all possible needs.
UNLIKE many purpose built holiday villas in Bali, Villa Tukad is very spacious (3 beds, 3 baths, AV Projector lounge, office, verandah, second lounge and two garden pavilions. It has been carefully furnished by the owners, a retired English professor and his wife for whom this is home for half the year.
ULTIMATE relaxation on SEVEN sofas/daybeds, and massage beds. In house massages can be arranged, and there is plenty of space for yoga etc.
The VERANDA with dining table and day bed, overlooks secluded pool and spectacular tropical GARDENS, which extend more than 50 metres down to the river and contains 2 pavilions. There are water features, stone carvings and shrines, and an infinity pool (10 X 4 metres) surrounded by palms, giant ferns, orchids and bougainvillea.
The VILLAGE location puts you in touch with local temples, ceremonies and rice fields, but the villa is only 10 mins from Batu Bolong (Canggu BEACH).
