Villa Hana offers guests a breezy laid-back lifestyle within an easy stroll of Echo Beach. Fully staffed and with four private bedroom suites (including a double bunk room for kids), a large living pavilion, 15-metre pool, media room and barbecue terrace, it's ideal for active families holidaying together, or for groups of friends drawn by Canggu's noted surf breaks and sunset bar scene.
Moments from Echo Beach and securely set within high walls, Villa Hana is an elegant four-bedroom villa with interlinking pavilions, courtyards and covered walkways. Created by notable Australian designer Stuart Membery, it features contemporary tropical interiors that blend seamlessly with their surroundings. The split-level living pavilion is open-sided and faces the pool; the bedrooms feature private garden terraces or open onto the pool, and the courtyards provide plenty of private chill-out spots. Oversize sofas on polished concrete floors, black and white prints of Bali, abstract paintings on white walls and rare artefacts in every corner - all attest to a modern design aesthetic.
The owners clearly know what appeals to families. Kids of all ages will love the cabin-style bunk bedroom, the media room with its 52" TV and PlayStation, and the 15-metre pool (where you can keep an eye on the small ones from the comfort of the living pavilion).
You have the choice of formal dining at the massive wood table, or informal, alfresco meals gathered around the table on the barbecue deck. For a quiet moment, you can retreat to the terrace of the master suite for some me-time. Not having to lift a finger may also be a welcome change. Working discreetly behind the scenes, Villa Hana's staff includes an accomplished chef and housekeepers who keep the villa neat and tidy. Villa Hana is only 550 metres - a leisurely stroll - from Echo Beach with its pounding surf, expanse of sand, and popular cafes.
Accommodations at Villa Hana is in two adjoining single-storey pavilions forming an L-shape around the swimming pool and linked by a covered courtyard. At one end of the villa grounds, looking across a small stream towards trees and rice fields, is the master bedroom suite and children’s bunk room. Facing the length of the pool and flanked by two guest bedrooms is the split-level living area with elevated dining area sandwiched between a covered courtyard terrace and the kitchen with covered barbecue area beyond. Towards the entrance is a multimedia room and guest cloakroom.
At the heart of Villa Hana is a huge fan-cooled and split level living area spreading out under a vaulted pavilion roof and opening onto the pool terrace. Curvaceous wicker sofas with over-sized cushions cluster around a coffee table while statuesque artefacts line benches set below enormous paintings.
A few steps lead up to the dining room where a solid suar wood table with stately armchairs seats up to 10 guests in style. To one side, tucked behind sliding doors, is the beautifully designed and well-equipped kitchen.
The air-conditioned media room provides a cool, comfortable entertainment hub for guests, who can languish on sofas and ottomans and watch a movie on the 52" TV. There's a selection of DVD's, books and board games to choose from, as well as a PlayStation 2. Next door is a guest washroom, complete with an open-to-sky rain shower.
A sun deck wraps around two sides of the 15-metre pool, furnished with loungers and outdoor cushions. The veranda in front of the master bedroom, furnished with a traditional Indonesian daybed, provides more casual seating, while the terraces behind the master suite and bunk bedroom serve as private corners for quiet retreat.
Next to the dining room, an ironwood deck provides alfresco seating looking onto a courtyard garden and beyond the kitchen, lies a pergola-roofed barbecue dining deck.
