Villa Atacaya is situated in a jungle-fringed river gorge close to the village of Beraban in Bali’s Tabanan regency, which is known as Bali’s ‘rice bowl’ due to its vast terraced rice fields. This quaint village bordering a river is a rare example of a traditional Balinese community barely touched by tourism and the rapid development to the south of the island. Villa guests are accorded a privileged insight into the agricultural, religious and daily life of the friendly villagers. Just four kilometres away is the famed Tanah Lot sea temple and the award-winning Greg Norman-designed Nirwana Bali Golf Course. The nearest surf beaches, including Echo Beach, are about eight kilometres from the villa.
Only 13 kilometres from the buzz of Seminyak, Villa Atacaya is built into the bank of the heavily forested Yeh Penet River, offering gorgeous valley views. The contemporary styled villa is built over three levels with a garden courtyard as its centrepiece and a 15-metre infinity-edged swimming pool at its border. The two-storey main building has dining and sitting areas on both levels providing a choice of formal or informal, outdoor and indoor, settings.
There’s also bar and an air-conditioned TV room opening onto the gardens and pool , Four bedrooms, each with stylish ensuite bathrooms, fill the other pavilions and down at riverbank level is a fifth bedroom, a yoga deck and a bale bengong relaxation pavilion. Villa Atacaya is staffed by a manager and a competent team of butlers who will go out of their way to make sure every guest’s need is taken care of, while the in-house chef will whip up any number of creations to satisfy all ages and tastes.
A car and driver is available for up to eight hours a day at a special rate, to whisk you off for a night on the town or a round of golf at the nearby, award-winning Nirwana Bali Golf Club at Tanah Lot, whose cliff-top 7th hole is amongst the most photographed holes in the golf world. Villa Atacaya shares a dedicated 400-square-metre event space with its neighbour Villa Iskandar. When the two villas – known collectively as the Nyanyi Riverside Villas – are rented together they offer a 9-bedroom option for large groups of friends, extended families and wedding parties.
