If holidaying in South Bali is too mainstream for you, why not consider Villa Tangguntiti? Villa Tangguntiti a beautiful blend of classic and contemporary Balinese architecture, set along the west coast of the island between Tabanan and Balian. Visiting the five bedroomed Villa Tangguntiti is akin to immersing yourself in an untouched world, one where time has paused to reflect only the traditional Balinese villages, the rice fields and the rolling countryside. The views from Villa Tangguntiti are also splendid, with lush, green irrigated fields all around and magnificent, westward facing sunsets every evening. Guests can even catch a glimpse of the sea and the Batukaru volcano from the garden on a clear day. Comprised of a main living pavilion and four separate Javanese teak houses, a stay at Villa Tangguntiti guarantees privacy and secluded sleeping quarters for every couple or guest. Each bedroom at Villa Tangguntiti is fit for royalty, featuring four 2x2 meter king-size beds and one 1.6x2 meter queen-size bed amidst wooden interiors and dreamy mixtures of cream, red and turquoise colors. Working desks, mini bars and 36 inch flat screen TVs come in all five bedrooms, as do outdoor, en-suite bathrooms with showers or jacuzzi tubs. The living room overlooking the endless rice fields is surely the major draw of Tangguntiti. With a surface of over 200 square meters, the communal area rests in a teak wood Joglo which is completely open to the tropical elements. Boasting a wide eight seater sofa, antique arm chairs and a French billiards table, this room is the best spot in the house to hang out and enjoy one another's company. No matter the time of day you can set the mood by putting on your own tunes over the living room's sound and speaker system. Next to the sofa lounge is a dining table which can accommodate up to 14 people for large feasts and parties. A fully-equipped kitchen and bar also are present, boasting a refrigerator and state of the art espresso machine so you can enjoy a freshly made cappuccino in the comfort of your bedroom balcony. By day, make the 20 meter pool and deck your own paradisiacal oasis. Sun mattresses underneath Balinese umbrellas line the pool's edge, while a open-sided teak wood bale stands in at the end of the water. Across the pool from the main living pavilion are specialized spa and gym facilities, complete with two massage tables, a stone bathtub for beauty treatments, a training bike and wide windows opening up to the green scenery. The attentive nature of the staff at Villa Tangguntiti demonstrate the warmth of Balinese hospitality, always helpful yet discreet and unassuming when you wish. The staff will be delighted to assist guests in arranging activities and day trips, from luxurious spa treatments, to fishing, rafting or trekking in the nearby mountains.
