“Only 20 minutes drive north of Seminyak, the luxury villas Iskandar and Atacaya lie side by side along the banks of a river shrouded in jungle with nothing but birdsong and the flowing river to break up the peace and quiet.” Two Villas, Nine Rooms, One Perfect Riverside Location!, FRV Bali, edition 10.5 Feb – Apr 2014
Villa Atacaya – Tanah Lot 5 bedroom private pool villa, BaliElite Havens
Welcome to Villa Atacaya, our secluded, riverside retreat in south-west Bali, where you will find contemporary architecture, five spacious bedrooms, and an abundance of natural beauty, just 13 kilometres from the bright lights, shops, restaurants and nightlife of Seminyak, and only a few minutes’ drive from one of the best golf courses in Asia.
We built our home into the contours of the valley, and it is blessed with a spellbinding view of the jungle-fringed river. This is a nature lovers’ paradise; a place where you will see kingfishers, enjoy birdsong during the day and be lulled to sleep at night by the sounds of running water. We think you’ll appreciate the choice of indoor and outdoor living and dining areas, the glamorous bathrooms, the alfresco bar and the splendid 15-metre swimming pool, which appears to overflow into the river valley. The architectural design integrates natural water features including a pond fed by a holy spring and a creek that flows into the river. Sleek structures, ironwood-shingle roofs and eye-catching stone fittings and finishes – such as the bright white acid-marble terrace, the metallic slate bathrooms, and the river-rock bathtubs – reflect the ambiance of the location and the purity of the gorgeous surroundings.
Villa Atacaya is complemented by sophisticated facilities and superb service from a full team of caring staff including a manager, butlers and a chef, so that that you will have no real need to go out for meals or entertainment, although we do provide the services of a car and driver for up to eight hours a day at a special rate should you wish to explore beyond the villa.
Villa Atacaya shares a dedicated 400-square-metre wedding space, a driveway, parking area and staff service facilities with its neighbour Villa Iskandar. When the two villas are rented together they offer a 9-bedroom option for large groups of friends, extended families and wedding parties.
