Villa Simona Oasis is chic contemporary estate cradled in the caring arms of two streams fed by a sacred spring, deep within the verdant rice terraces of Canggu, and only minutes from the beach. Seclusion and five-star service from a large professional staff team that includes a private chef are key here, and five fabulous bedrooms are privately positioned among lush gardens and a 13-metre pool. A romantic riverside spa is reached via a little bridge where two circular pavilions are fitted with massage tables. Immersion into the stone jacuzzis decorated with elephant heads, is a must. Villa Simona Oasis is situated in a small valley where two sacred streams join on their way down to the nearby sea. Wedged between the tiny villages of Padang Linjong and Pererenan, in the popular district of Canggu, the villa is surrounded by lush trees along the riverbanks and rice terraces. The villa backs onto a few village houses and is near a revered local temple. Echo Beach is just over a kilometre away (a 15-minute walk) – a busy social scene where locals, expats, surfers and visitors, gather in the evenings to watch the legendary sunsets and catch a few waves. An impressive variety of eateries spill out onto a beachside bluff here and there's a daily barbecue and live music on Sunday evenings. Many more dining options and watering holes can be found on up-and-coming Jalan Batu Bolong, just two kilometres away, and in less than 20 minutes' drive and you can reach the trendy shops and restaurants of Seminyak. Regular rates at Villa Simona Oasis include the use of a car and driver for up to eight hours a day at a special discounted rate (petrol extra).
