Puri Ganesha Villas

Pemuteran, North West Bali


There are just 4 large 2-storey Balinese style thatched villas, each with 1, 2 or 3 bedrooms, very spacious dining and living areas, and a kitchen. Each is set in an acre of garden fronting the seashore with an antique beachfront rice barn; sit here to relax, meditate or just gaze out and watch the evening fishermen try their luck across the coral reefs. You also get 2 discreet and smiley staff, its own pool and an open-air pavilion where you can dine in private should you wish.

Diana, an interior designer, has furnished the villas with items collected from her travels. Think uncluttered authentic chic with intricately carved wooden doors, white linen drapes held back with silk ties, antique day beds and four-poster beds, colourful batik cushions (her own design), bathroom sinks made of giant clamshells, trinkets and emblems of an elephant theme. All this magically produces a stylish yet lived-in atmosphere, you feel as if you have returned to visit an old haunt. Standard features include mosquito nets, air conditioning, iPod docks and huge open air bathrooms - beautiful.

Villa Senyum and Villa Sepi both have 2 bedrooms - one master bedroom with attached shower room upstairs and an additional double/twin bedroom downstairs with outdoor bathroom. Villa Senyum can sleep an additional 2 people on extra beds in the living area. Villa Senang (sleeps 6) follows a very similar setup with an upstairs master bedroom and 2 twin/double bedrooms downstairs. Villa Santai (sleeps 2) is the honeymoon villa and is the most private; picture elegant black and white checks, gold and silver threads, dark red, black and cream ikats from the east of the island.

Save to favouritesPrintMailPuri Ganesha VillasYou go against the grain when you stay at Puri Ganesha. For a start it's situated on the island's unspoilt north coast. A stunning drive across the mountains takes you far from the hordes. Its 4 large [r:BA004:villas] are set back a stone's throw from the calm sea in the sleepy village of Pemuteran. Each is enchantingly styled thanks to English owner Diana von Cranach. Bold and eccentric she may be, but it's her imagination and originality that makes this place such a one off: each villa is a home filled with carefully chosen pieces from her many travels. You'll have your own smiling staff (who also make great babysitters), private pool and grounds, and the restaurant's delicious organic food is some of the best on the island. The extent of Diana’s vitality stretches from arranging shopping trips on nearby Java or special yoga and detox weeks, to picking guests up by Harley from the airport. Late night stories of spirits, lost loves, and past lives won't keep you awake due to the deep sense of peace created in this magical place. This is one of our favourites.
