Chalina Estate is a magnificent property overlooking the picturesque rice fields of Canggu and situated just minutes from the famed surf breaks at Echo Beach on Bali’s south-west coast. Resting upon 5,300 square metres of beautifully landscaped gardens and lawns bordering the Pangi river with a divine 30-metre swimming pool as its centrepiece, the villa invites guests to enter a world of total peace and privacy.
This luxurious home delightfully pairs the old with the new – classic Balinese architecture with alang-alang thatched roofs, sandstone walls, polished stone and dark wood floors provide the perfect backdrop to showcase the owner’s striking modern artwork. Funky sculptures mingle with handpicked Indonesian artefacts to create an interesting dimension of shapes and textures that represent the blending of different cultures.
Featuring six bedrooms and converted study (which can serve as an additional bedroom), generous living and dining areas and a separate lounge bar with two adjoining terraces, there’s plenty of space to relax and unwind. The pool’s floating gazebo provides a soothing location for a massage or to practice meditation and embrace the villa’s uplifting energy.
With butler service and a private chef on hand to prepare delicious Asian and Western dishes you need not lift a finger; just lie back and indulge in the luxurious surroundings and magical sunsets.
Chalina Estate’s perfectly manicured lawns, exotic tropical flora and stunning outlook make the villa an idyllic setting for weddings, parties and special events. From a traditional wedding ceremony to a unique and memorable birthday celebration, all dreams can be capably realised.
Suitable for all interests and ages – from extended families to groups of friends – Chalina Estate is also the ultimate destination to rejuvenate mind, body and soul. Embark on a spiritual retreat in this peaceful haven surrounded by natural beauty and the stresses and strains of modern life will soon evaporate into the tropical air.
Chalina Estate’s main two-storey residence includes four bedrooms while three further guest rooms are situated in individual pavilions leading down towards the river. Each ensuite bedroom is air-conditioned and features black-out curtains, a flat-screen TV and DVD player and a small fridge.
Master suite 1 (Saffron): This huge suite has incredible views over the garden and rice fields. A king-size four-poster bed with golden mosquito net and bright fuchsia and green cushions sits proudly in the middle of this high-ceilinged room which is accessed by a solid wooden staircase. Wooden side tables support feathered lamp shades while, behind the bed, two white sofas contrast nicely against the dark-wood floors and artwork. Glass sliding doors open onto a covered timber deck complete with a comfy sofa and ottomans.
A dressing area provides plenty of hanging space while the ensuite bathroom offers a large stainless steel bath, wooden vanity with twin basins and a walk-in terrazzo rain shower. Guests in this room enjoy exclusive access to satellite TV.
Master suite 2 (Amber): Opposite Saffron on the first floor landing, the second master suite, Amber, also presents stunning views across the pool and garden. The netted, four-poster king-size bed sports bright turquoise cushions and white feather lampshades ornament the bedside tables. Furnished with an eclectic array of artefacts and artworks, this room also features a mezzanine level complete with TV and queen-size daybed (which can be used as an extra bed). A walk-in dressing room and ensuite bathroom with Palimanan stone floor, rain shower, stainless steel bathtub, and twin basins complete this suite.
Pool view room (Ginger): Downstairs, the queen-bedded Ginger room opens out onto a large stone patio area that looks directly over the inviting swimming pool. This room can be accessed from the garden and from a walkway at the rear of the building featuring enormous vase fountains cascading into a fish pond. Splashes of bright orange and purple silk and a white egg-shaped chair inject vitality into the room, contrasting with its polished grey terrazzo floors. Off the bedroom lies a separate dressing area and an ensuite bathroom with Palimanan stone floor, rain shower, stainless steel bathtub, and twin basins.
Twin converted studyroom (Cinnamon): Also located on the ground floor of the main building, the converted study – which is ideal for children – features whitewashed teak beds draped with mosquito nets and polished grey terrazzo floors. Like the Ginger room, this guestroom opens onto the large stone patio facing the pool and can also be accessed from the rear walkway. Funky Japanese doll lampshades light up the room while a white egg-shaped chair sits in one corner. The bathroom is identical to that of the Ginger room.
Guest pavilions (Paprika, Clove and Vertyver): Three guest bedrooms face the pool in stand-alone pavilions set on lawns sloping down towards the river, each with a patio from which to enjoy the view. The three rooms are similar in design but feature differently hued bathrooms and individual artwork.
Each room is furnished with a queen-size four-poster bed draped with a mosquito net and provides plenty of storage space. Ensuite bathrooms feature cobbled stone floors, black marble twin wash basins and rain showers.
Living, dining and kitchen

Guests can relax on the extremely comfortable purple and red upholstered L-shaped lounge and ottomans set around a low wooden coffee table. Silver balls, modern sculptures and bright artwork bring this traditional structure to life.
On the upper tier, the dining area is fit for a banquet with its huge wooden table and funky purple wicker chairs. Next to the dining pavilion are ponds filled with water lilies, a cascading waterfall and tall vase fountains which flow gently in the background.

Outdoor spaces, garden and pool
The centrepiece of the villa, the 30 x 8-metre swimming pool sits strategically overlooking the sloping garden and neighbouring rice fields making it the perfect spot for sundowners. Single and double loungers shaded by umbrellas lets guests enjoy the surroundings in comfort. A floating gazebo is accessed by a walkway from one side of the pool, offering a great massage platform.
Surrounded by coconut palms and dotted with fragrant frangipanis, the impeccably manicured lawns provide a wonderful setting for yoga and meditation as well as weddings and special events.

Alongside the river, and immediately to the front of the living and dining area, is an air-conditioned lounge bar which adapts to become a comfortable cinema room in the evening.
