Berawa’s Hidden Paradise

January 14, 2016




Somewhere in Canggu, there is a hidden gem of a place that will give your holiday a completely different and unique spin from what you’re used to. If you’re tired of the modern, sleek and contemporary, then this is the place to be. Located on Jl. Berawa in the centre of all that is hip and happening, nestled between groves of tropical greenery, peaceful natural surroundings and a fortress-like wall to give you that sense of peace and security, sits Villa Berawa, a beautiful creation reminiscent of the majestic and glorious days when people lived simply, in houses made by their own bare hands. Here you’ll find villas that are actual traditional wooden Javanese houses constructed in the Joglo style - in a structured Javanese society and tradition, theJoglo house is traditionally associated with the residence of Javanese aristocrats and nobility.


Comprising 8 villas with a total of 14 bedrooms, Villa Berawa provides 4 units of 1-bedroom villas, 2 units of 2-bedroom villas and 3-bedroom villas that all come with its own private pooland ornate traditional Javanese furnishings brought in from Java. If you look closely you’ll find some hand painted and handmade tiles, artwork and ornaments. Equipped with the latest state-of-the-art facilities, the villas have all the modern comforts you need for the perfect holiday escape. In the 3-bedroom villa, you’ll enjoy your very own compound consisting of three separate buildings featuring bedrooms with romantic four-poster beds, living rooms with flat screen TVs and beautiful Javanese furniture as well as a kitchen. In the centre sits a large cerulean blue swimming pool. Our favourite area in the villa has to be the luxuriously large, spacious and elegant bathroom. Decorated with antique mirrors, bathtub, shower and double sinks, it overlooks a tropical enclave through its glass walls, perfect for relaxing while you enjoy a long, sumptuous bath.


If you’re hungry, head to the villa’s ‘Dapur Berawa’ (Berawa’s Kitchen) with its vast and delicious Indonesian menu as well as some western style dishes such as salads, sandwiches, pasta and burgers. The whole atmosphere of DapurBerawa is again traditional Javanese and a welcome change from the hectic environment you may find elsewhere. Other amenities available is a fully-equipped gym and a shared pool as well as a library that is actually a refurbished cow’s shed, made and constructed in Java and shipped to Bali. If you’re in the mood go out and about, there’s a free shuttle service; you are 5 minutes away from Berawa Beach, rice paddies and 10 minutes away from the hustle and bustle of Seminyak. So whether you choose to simply pop by the restaurant, or stay in one of its beautiful villas, you’ll be sure to be in good hands at Villa Berawa – all its staff are friendly, engaging and well trained in the true art of Balinese hospitality.
