“Welcome to Paradise” is Villa Pangi Gita’s official greeting and it could not be more fitting for this luxurious hidden retreat.
Respectful of the Balinese culture and local environment, lush terraced gardens rich with foliage and exotic blooms slope down to the river, enveloping traditional-style living and sleeping pavilions that feature polished teak and terrazzo floors, vaulted ceilings, iron-wood shingle roofs, and large glass doors that open out to the emerald green surrounds. The owner’s impressive collection of Asian antiques and superior furnishings presents a unique sense of style and demonstrates the love and commitment that has gone into making this three-bedroom villa extra special.
Water is an important feature here, and its significance is reflected in the villa’s name which translates to the ‘singing river Pangi’ –‘Gita’ meaning song and ‘Pangi’ being the name of the river that borders the property and enhances the ambiance with its blissful melody. This sound is echoed throughout the villa’s grounds, with water features, fountains and trickling fishponds cascading over terraces to create a calm and soothing atmosphere.
The villa flows with spaces for guests to unwind and relax too, from the generous open-sided living pavilion cooled by ceiling fans, to the air-conditioned study with its large satellite TV and DVD player, or the traditional balé (relaxation gazebo) that overlooks the stunning free-form swimming pool by the river’s edge.
To complement this oasis, a team of warm and friendly staff are on hand to spoil guests with their exceptional service. The experienced private chef prepares delicious home-cooked meals, while villa attendants take care of daily housekeeping duties and special requests such as serving cocktails by the pool or arranging deluxe in-villa spa treatments.
While guests will be hard pressed to leave Villa Pangi Gita, a stroll through the local village and rice fields should not be missed, along with a sunset drink at nearby surfer’s haunt Echo Beach. A complimentary car with driver is available for excursions further afield.
