Rome wasn’t built in a day and neither was this luxuriously appointed five-bedroom villa on Bali’s south-west coast, which took its owners five years to lovingly create and furnish. From its restored wooden joglo pavilions filled with handpicked artworks and antiques, to its state-of-the-art kitchen, attention to detail at Villa Kudus is nothing short of extraordinary.
Set in a sprawling tropical garden, individual living and bedroom pavilions make Villa Kudus the
perfect option for families or friends wanting to get together in sophisticated yet comfortable
surroundings.
Mere minutes from the beach, Villa Kudus is ideally located to take advantage of all that Bali has to offer; from stunning coastline to world-class restaurants, outstanding shopping and cultural delights.
To create their exceptional villa, the owners of Villa Kudus carefully sourced traditional wooden
pavilions from the famous joglo-building region in Java, from which the villa takes its name. Some of these unique hand-made structures are over 150 years old and have been superbly restored and refurbished, providing the villa with a timeless stateliness and majesty.
The devotion that has gone into crafting this beautiful villa can also be seen in the tasteful artworks and antiques which have been sourced from all over Asia and as far afield as Russia. These, along with comfortably plush sofas, ornate chandeliers and oriental rugs, give each space in the villa a sumptuous opulence. Also boasting modern conveniences such as its state-of-the-art kitchen, coffee machines, flat-screen televisions and Bose music system, the villa offers a perfect blend of old and new.
Villa Kudus offers guests space aplenty to relax in private or come together socially; be it on a
lounger by the pool, in a shaded spot in the garden, being treated to a massage at the poolside bale or dining alfresco under the stars. And wherever guests chose to unwind, the villa’s attentive and friendly staff will be there to take care of their every need.
It only takes a few minutes to walk to Berawa Beach with its world-renowned surf and beautiful
sunsets. Staff can arrange a car and driver at a very reasonable daily rate, and the bright lights of Seminyak are just fifteen minutes away. Guests at Villa Kudus also have complimentary membership of the Canggu Club during their stay.

Location
Villa Kudus is in an idyllic location, discreetly tucked away, yet only a few minutes’ walk from Berawa Beach in Canggu, south-west Bali, an area traditionally known for its rice paddies but more recently home to many new cafes and warungs that are popping up in this increasingly fashionable area.
Berawa Beach has some of Bali’s best surf breaks and even if you’re not a keen board rider it’s still a magical spot to watch the waves at any time of the day. Best of all, a short stroll along the beach will bring you to some of the most famous restaurants and bars on the island. Head north and you’ll be on your way to some family friendly fun at the Beach House on Echo Beach where you can select your seafood and watch it being grilled right before your eyes
The newly opened Bali Equestrian Centre is a mere five minute drive away, The Canggu Club (of which guests have complimentary membership) is just a couple of kilometres up the road, and the dramatic Tanah Lot sea temple and world-renowned Nirwana Bali Golf Course are both within easy reach. Sophisticated Seminyak, with its world-class dining, bars, cafes, spas and shopping, is just a 15-minute drive away.

Features
Villa Overview
Crossing the threshold of Villa Kudus via authentic Balinese Hindu temple doors, and following stone steps over a tranquil goldfish pond, guests enter the main joglo, an enormous, air-conditioned pavilion which houses the lounge, dining, bar and entertainment area, and are immediately transported into a world where traditional Indonesian architecture meets sumptuous interiors to create a truly opulent and unique villa experience.

Surrounded by glass doors, the living pavilion offers views over the garden and pool, while a raised terrace provides the perfect space for open-air meals, which are served from the kitchen below.
Stairs lead down from the joglo to a grassed area where friezes depicting scenes from Java’s most famous temple, Borobodur decorate the walls. Two of the five bedrooms are housed in one joglo and overlook the garden. The master bedroom and two additional bedrooms form an L shape around the swimming pool area.

Bedrooms
The owners of this magnificent villa have a passion for mountain climbing and the
five bedrooms – all of which are furnished with king-size beds, offer both air-conditioning
and ceiling fans, feature hand-selected pieces of art, merbau-wood flooring topped with Asian rugs, and have opulent en-suites – are named after famous
Indonesian peaks.

Master Suite Bedroom
The ultra-luxurious master bedroom boasts six-metre-high ceilings hung with an elaborate chandelier and features an ornate floor-to-ceiling bed head fashioned from antique doors. A study area is furnished with a writing desk, and comfortable sofas form a private space for television viewing. The marble en-suite is fitted with a freestanding bathtub, a rain shower cubicle, twin sinks, a huge wall mirror and plenty of storage space. Glass doors on three sides open to the pool at the front, a sheltered courtyard on the left and a lush tropical garden behind.

Bedroom 2- Bromo
This large guest bedroom contains a distinctive wooden writing desk and comfortable sofa area with television and DVD player. Bromo’s bed features a marvellous vintage door that has been imaginatively used as a bed head. The en-suite bathroom features acid wash marble from Sulawesi and has an enormous sunken Jacuzzi and rain shower that overlooks a wall of tropical greenery. Large wooden doors open from this bedroom onto a covered veranda with views over
the swimming pool.

Bedroom 3 – Merapi
Merapi is adorned with traditional Javanese furnishings and features a writing desk and a sofa facing the television and DVD player. The en-suite bathroom is equipped with an enormous sunken Jacuzzi and rain shower overlooking a wall of tropical greenery. The bedroom has large wooden doors that open onto a covered veranda and the swimming pool.

Bedroom 4 – Agung
Paintings by contemporary Chinese artists adorn the walls of the Agung bedroom. The en-suite, which overlooks a wall of tropical greenery, features a striking blue chandelier above an oversized sunken Jacuzzi, as well as a rain shower and an ornate wooden cabinet. Large wooden doors open onto a covered veranda with views over the garden; further doors open to the pool.

Bedroom 5 – Batur
Authentic Japanese kimonos adorn the walls of Batur, which sits alongside Agung and shares its garden outlook. A traditional carved Javanese bed head adorns the four-poster bed and guests can relax on the chaise longue or sink into the comfortable sofas which face the television and DVD player. Large reclaimed teak doors lead to the en-suite bathroom which features an oversized sunken Jacuzzi and rain shower with acid-wash marble from Sulawesi.

Living/Dining and bar area
A wonderful sense of light and space pervades the enormous living pavilion at Villa Kudus, which upholds the villa’s benchmark of style and taste with exquisite antiques and ornaments from around the globe. Encased with glass doors, this pavilion can be opened up to allow guests to luxuriate in the balmy tropical air, or can be closed for air-conditioned comfort.

At the centre of the pavilion, below a magnificent pair of chandeliers, two oversized sofas and four armchairs encircle a coffee table crafted from recycled boat timber. Above, wooden beams softly draped with flowing white fabric support the intricately carved ceiling which represents the seven levels of heaven.

A teak dining table for ten stands to one side of the pavilion, adjacent to the bar area.

To the other side, a freestanding bookshelf separates the television area where movies can be enjoyed on a 46-inch plasma screen from an antique daybed.
Cocktail hour can be any time of the day at Villa Kudus.

The bar has a double fridge, a Nespresso coffee machine and ample glassware. There is also here a dumbwaiter, which transports food from the kitchen below.

Outdoor living
On the stone terrace adjacent to the living pavilion, an outdoor dining table for ten is ideally located for alfresco dining, whether it be a long lazy lunch or a delicious dinner under the stars. Take advantage of the barbecue here for some fresh grilled seafood or a traditional satay.

Poolside relaxation at Villa Kudus can be enjoyed in the covered balé – an excellent spot for a massage – or on one of the ergonomically designed sun lounge’s on the verandas of all the guest bedrooms. And in front of the master bedroom, surrounded by a wonderful array of tropical plants, is an L-shaped couch and a coffee table perfectly shaded by a large umbrella and perfectly situated for some quiet downtime.

Dining

Chef Sri and her team are wonderfully adept at both Asian and Western cuisine, her specialties
include a lighter-than-air cheese soufflé and Indonesian grilled chicken with Sri’s own special
marinade. Dinner parties for up to 10 guests can be catered for, though it’s best to discuss the
menu a few days in advance so Sri can source the freshest and finest ingredients. Seafood
barbecues are also recommended: with the catch of the day marinated and grilled to make a
perfect casual meal for friends or family.

Kitchen
The kitchen at Villa Kudus is lined with walls of Indian stone. Two glass doors make it a bright, cool and airy space.

Guests can comfortably perch on one of the five bar stools for an informal meal or snack whilst enjoying the serenity of the garden.

The kitchen is equipped with gas and electric ovens, a giant refrigerator, expansive stovetop, a wall of built-in glass cupboards and all the mod cons that you would expect to find in such a well-appointed villa.

Media
To the other side of the living area is a freestanding bookshelf separates the television area where movies can be enjoyed on a 46-inch plasma screen from an antique daybed.

For Children

The family friendly advantages of a villa holiday are many, including access to your own private
facilities and the freedom to use them whenever you want.

Knowing that the kids can run around happily, independently and safely, without you having to worry about other guests, is a real plus – and one that means parents are certain to have a more relaxed holiday, too.
A grassy area in the garden at Villa Kudus provides the ideal spot for kids to kick around a ball
or play a game of tag and the ample seating by the pool gives parents the opportunity to sit
back and relax whilst also being able to keep an eye on the kids in the water.

Villa Kudus’ team of friendly staff will make children feel as welcome as adults, and having these willing helpers on hand gives guests plenty of flexibility and freedom to do their own exploring beyond the villa grounds (full-time babysitting incurs a small extra cost).

Although the well-equipped kitchen allows you to prepare meals for fussy eaters or babies with
ease, staff will happily to do this for you – just talk through your requirements and meal
schedules with the villa manager or chef and they will take care of the rest. Pancakes by the
pool for breakfast? Toasted sandwiches for tea? No problem.

The chef can customise all meals to suit children’s taste buds.
Don’t worry about packing all that cumbersome kids’ equipment for your stay. Just let us know
what you need, and anything we don’t have in-house (villa facilities include a baby cot and
highchair) we can hire on your behalf (click here to see list of available hire items).

Spa Service

Kudus can recommend deluxe treatments carried out in the privacy of your own villa by fully trained
