Villa Hans – Canggu

Nestled within a small village and rice fields of Canggu, southwest Bali, the four-bedroom Villa Hans abounds with spirituality, culture and tradition. Built in 2007, this eco-friendly riverside property blends contemporary and traditional Balinese styles and is filled with exquisite antique pieces.

Interacting with the local community and fully staffed by a welcoming team of ten, Villa Hans offers a relaxed introduction to Balinese life.

It’s no coincidence that Villa Hans is within easy access of a string of some of Bali’s finest surfing beaches; Pererenan Beach is a mere 300m walk away and legendary surfer’s haunt, Echo Beach, ten minutes by car. Guests can use the owners’ large personal collection of surfboards, but if surfing sounds like too much effort, there’s always the 18m infinity-edge pool, centre-stage of pretty gardens leading down to a river and terraced rice-fields, or the yoga room, which also doubles as a TV / entertainment room.

Contemporary Balinese style with traditional touches, Villa Hans comprises a main open-air pavilion with serap (ironwood) roofing, containing the living-dining room, kitchen and adjoining staff quarters. This building looks out over lovely tropical gardens with infinity-edge pool, balé and wooden deck area. Just outside the pavilion, to the left of the kitchen, a stairway leads to the detached yoga room.

Within the gardens and beside the pool, a detached one-storey wing contains bedrooms one and two. Further down on the same side, a double-storey, contemporary designed block contains bedrooms three and four. The pool and bedrooms extend to a lower lawn section and gardens flanking a small river; to the right stands the villa’s shrine.

The ten staff at Villa Hans all live locally and are regarded by guests and owners as part of the Hans family. With the emphasis on a family-style Balinese experience, this endearingly friendly team are dedicated to making your stay enjoyable and relaxed. They are also keen to introduce you to the local culture; anything from practicing Indonesian cooking to making Balinese prayer offerings.
