Villa Candi Kecil Tujuh is a grand, deluxe and tropical holiday retreat, comprising two neighboring 3-bedroom villas: Candi Kecil 1 & Candi Kecil 2. Fused together, they make one amazing 6-bedroom luxury villa, boasting lush tropical gardens with not 1 but 2 swimming pools, indoor and outdoor dining areas, multiple lounge spots and a yoga / meditation space overlooking the lush tropical greenery that surrounds the estate. A great venue for holding yoga retreats indeed and it’s also the perfect Bali home for large families or groups of friends wanting to holiday together while still keeping privacy and quiet areas to enjoy some solitude. Located in a traditional village, you get to see the authentic Bali while the cultural center of Ubud awaits just a short drive from Villa Candi Kecil 3. Best of both worlds!
The estate of Villa Candi Kecil Tujuh is hidden away in the village of Pejeng, a quiet place where farmers work the rice fields and ceremonies for the Gods are held at the village temples. You will hear nothing but birds chirping, the wind hollering, the rooster crowing and something, the enchanting music of the Balinese ceremonies. It is truly peaceful! Yet, the center of Ubud, known as the cultural heart of the island, awaits just a short drive away from the villa. Villa Candi Kecil Tujuh makes a perfect holiday retreat for connecting with nature and re-connecting with yourself and your loved ones. Families can spend the day, lounging by the poolside, swimming, enjoying pampering spa treatments in the shaded gazebo and dining alfresco style beneath the stars. Kids can splash around in the shallow wading pool or play on the manicured lawns of the garden, best out the sun, in the shade of a towering palm or a scenting frangipani tree. Villa Candi Kecil Tujuh features two living pavilions. One of them boasts a wonderful open-plan concept, allowing you to enjoy the garden view and breath in the fresh air all day long. The other pavilion features full-length glass sliding doors so that guests can choose to close them or keep them open. Both living pavilions are furnished and decorated elegantly with teak wooden- and rattan furniture alongside a décor of tribal traditional artwork and statues. There are long teak tables for communal dining, fully equipped kitchens and cozy lounge corners for reading books and watching movies on the flat-screen cable TVs with DVD-players. The upper, open-air yoga and meditation pavilion is the perfect soul soothing, back-bending and peaceful spot to connect with body, mind and soul. Breath in the fresh air, gaze at the tropical sceneries while doing your daily practices. Or, get the comfy beanbags out and transform the space into a charming hang-out spot to sip some cocktails together in the afternoon. Up to you!
Villa Candi Kecil Tujuh houses a total of 6 bedroom suites, 3 in each villa. All of the 6 bedrooms feature glass doors that slide open to the garden in the morning, so you can soak up the morning sun before plunging into the refreshing water of one of the swimming pools. 5 bedrooms feature canopied four poster beds and one of them is furnished with twin beds. The whitewashed interior designs and the crisp white linen on the comfy beds draped by white mosquito nets create a serene and peaceful ambiance for a perfect night sleep. Two of the bedrooms are interconnected, making it the perfect family compound and one bedroom, the master suite, comes with a jacuzzi in the en-suite. Each room has a private bathroom with open-air rain showers. Soap and shampoo are provided as well as safety deposit boxes in the wardrobe closets.
