Villa Kakatua is a luxurious holiday home just metres from Batu Bolong surf beach in Canggu on Bali's south-west coast. Hidden behind private walls and resting among lush tropical gardens, this four-bedroom villa is perfect for young groups seeking a traditional Balinese haven within easy walking distance of some of the island's hippest and most happening hangouts. Larger groups can book Villa Kakatua together with neighbouring three-bedroom Villa Kedidi for a seven-bedroom option.
Cared for by warm and attentive staff who will take care of your every need, the villa's central location makes it attractive to the party set. The tropical gardens may have you believing otherwise, but right outside those villa walls, you will find the black volcanic sands and popular surf breaks of Canggu, and the vibrant beat of Bali right at your doorstep. It's easy to succumb to the island's infectious spirit when staying at Villa Kakatua.
Kakatua, which means cockatoo, is a gem of a villa for those seeking a Balinese private retreat in the centre of the action, at an affordable price. Located next to three-bedroom Villa Kedidi, this four-bedroom villa is the epitome of tropical luxury.
Beautifully designed in classic Balinese-style, the villa features timber pillars, high serap wood ceilings, garden bathrooms, traditional artefacts, a free-form swimming pool and lush tropical surrounds, home to a myriad of exotic plants and birdlife (you may even see a cockatoo).
Just 100 metres from the beautiful black volcanic sands of Batu Bolong Beach, Villa Kakatua is perfectly placed for exploring Canggu's exciting nightlife, cool cafe, innovative restaurants and chic boutiques. Catch a wave, groove to the music, build a sandcastle or be mesmerized by the setting sun that this Island of the Gods is famous for.
This villa's tropical grounds and swimming pool are ideal for lazing after a late night. The warm and hospitable staff is attentive and always ready with a cold towel or a refreshing drink. The kitchen is helmed by professional chefs shared with Villa Kedidi next door, dishing out delicious eats all day long, adapted to your preferences.
Truly a home-away-from-home, Villa Kakatua will embrace you with its character and charm. You will look forward to its welcoming environs, after partying in the many bars and beach clubs around. Such is the spell cast by the villa, that guests can't help but return to it year after year.
A private path bordered by plants and limestone carvings leads to Villa Kakatua's traditional Balinese doors. Behind these doors guests are greeted by an aling-aling wall (a short partition wall which, according to traditional belief, protects the villa from bad spirits), a fishpond and a bubbling water feature.
The main two-storey pavilion houses the master suite, one guest bedroom, the living area and the kitchen. Adjacent to this is the dining bale, and to the far side of that the other two guest bedrooms lie side by side below a thatched roof.
Each room faces the lagoon-style pool and lush gardens enabling guests to enjoy the peace and tranquility from every angle, while those wishing to embrace the spiritual side of Bali can observe daily offerings being made to the gods at the villa's very own garden temple.
