Villa Taman Surga
The majestic 6-bedroom residence known as ‘Taman Sorga’, meaning ‘Heavenly Garden’ is located just five minutes’ walk from the beach in the historical village of Sanur on Bali’s southeast coast. Here guests can escape from the world within an environment of lush tropical gardens, serenity and bliss.
Resting on 3600 square metres of land in a magnificent tropical garden, Villa Taman Sorga can sleep up to 12 guests. It is comprised of a main two-storey house furnished with Indonesian antiques, a contemporary styled two-storey guest wing, a traditional Balinese Wantilan living pavilion, a state-of-the-art gourmet kitchen, an indoor/outdoor dining room, a gym, a pool house, and a 17-metre freeform swimming pool.
All bedrooms have audio visual facilities, water is solar heated and WiFi is accessible throughout.
Villa Taman Sorga has been featured in numerous architectural magazines and books showcasing ‘Contemporary Balinese’ luxury lifestyle. It is ideally suited to large families or discerning groups of friends looking for space, grandeur, comfort and privacy with close access to the shops, restaurants and beach.
Accommodation comprises an open-sided living pavilion, an air-conditioned media room and six bedrooms in either the main house, guest wing pavilion or separate stand-alone pavilions.
The main house is a two-storey pavilion, roofed in alang-alang thatch, comprising two double bedrooms, a wrap-around terrace on the second floor, an open-air living room on ground level and a wine cellar. The architecture and antique furnishings showcase the old Bali style – eclectic, historic and romantic.
Downstairs master suite
The downstairs, air-conditioned master suite features a timber floor, a king size canopied four-poster bed, a traditional Kartini sofa, and beautiful antique carved Javanese doors.
It is equipped with a TV and DVD player. The splendid ensuite bathroom is long and narrow, complete with a glass roof. At one end is a toilet and bidé behind carved Balinese doors, while at the other end an archway opens into a walk-in circular marble space with a shower. There are also twin washbasins and mirrors in carved frames.
Upstairs master bedroom
A staircase leads up to the air-conditioned master bedroom under a soaring roof. The room is furnished with a regal pair of queen-sized beds resting within an antique four poster Balinese ‘bale’ pavilion, which comes from a palace in Singaraja and was originally used for ceremonies.
A carved griffin stands guard upon the canopy, and a scene from The Ramayana Hindu epic is depicted in coloured paintings on the headboards. There is also a walk-in closet, and a 42” TV and DVD player.
The ensuite bathroom is fitted with a large glass-walled walk-in shower, twin marble washbasins, and an ornate elephant-themed mirror from Thailand. Steps lead up into a large sunken bathtub and there is also an old apotik chest. Louvre doors from the bedroom open onto a broad wooden balcony, positioned on two sides with gorgeous views of the garden, and furnished with a carved daybed and a lazy hammock for truly chilling out.
The guest wing is situated away from the main house on the opposite side of the swimming pool. This two-storey building is characterised by colonial-inspired modern architecture with an ironwood shingle roof, a colonnaded covered terrace and a wide upper balcony running the length of the building.
The rooms are spacious and light with high ceilings, polished tiled floors, contemporary furnishings and a cream and white décor. This wing can comfortably accommodate up to six guests in its three air-conditioned bedrooms. The air-conditioned studio can sleep up to two people if required. The terrace is punctuated with modern Balinese statues.
Guest wing master bedroom
The master bedroom in the guest wing is furnished with a king bed and a daybed, a desk, chairs, and an ottoman. It is equipped with a TV and DVD player and surround sound, an iPod dock and a safe deposit box.
Adjacent is a large dressing room with loads of storage and hanging space, and the ensuite bathroom in cream marble is fitted with a large Jacuzzi bathtub, positioned centrally, twin washbasins, a bidé, a toilet, and a state-of-the-art Appollo massage shower, incorporating a multi-positional overhead shower, a handheld shower, and eight hydro-massage body jets.
Guest wing second bedroom
The second bedroom is very similar, in the same décor with a king bed, a dressing area at the back, and a cream marble bathroom with an Appollo massage shower.
Guest wing twins
Additionally, there are two twin rooms, both with beds that can be pushed together to make a double bed. Each has an ensuite marble bathroom with a small tub, twin washbasins and a massage shower.
All bedrooms are equipped with safes, iPod docks and audio visual facilities.
The dining pavilion is linked to the kitchen via a wooden bridge over a fish pond. It is comprised of two distinct areas offering guests a choice of two very different dining experiences. One is a formal indoor dining room, presented in classic Balinese style, with a hardwood floor, a soaring alang-alang thatched roof and carved Balinese doors.
The more casual, alfresco dining verandah is sheltered by a roof and cooled by a fan. The elevated wooden floor is furnished Thai style with cushions and a low antique table for eight, suitable for dining or perhaps for playing cards. There is also an additional circular table with four chairs.
The living pavilion is a stand-alone classic building constructed to the exact specifications of an ancient and traditional Balinese ‘Wantilan’ (village meeting place) with a high, two-tiered roof supported by gilded wooden pillars that were handcrafted by a village of carvers.
Ideal for entertaining, this grand room features a parquet floor completed with oriental rugs, and is furnished with comfortable upholstered sofas and occasional tables. It is equipped with a 42” TV, DVD player and surround sound and is fitted with glass doors on three sides that can be folded back for open air living or closed for air-conditioned comfort.
The pool house is an open-air pavilion with an elevated polished timber deck and two sitting areas. It is furnished with daybeds and lamps, while Balinese doors lead to a washroom with a shower. There is also an open-air pool shower. The second sitting area is on a covered deck under a pitched roof that extends to a pergola roof.
A cane suite with yellow and white striped cushions adds a splash of colour and comfort against a smooth Batu Yogya stone wall.
The gym is a self contained building with glass sides, adjoining a wash room and shower. It is equipped with air-conditioning, a treadmill, multi-gym and TV.
