Villa Papaya is a luxury villa rental in Bali, tucked away among the picturesque rice fields and rural villages of Canggu in south west Bali, five-bedroom, fully staffed, palatial yet welcoming property, offering western comforts and contemporary Indonesian style, infused with traditional Balinese touches. Centre-stage within two acres of exquisitely landscaped grounds is a 20m infinity-edge pool, which seemingly drops away to a riverbank of rainforest foliage and waterfall.
With its lovely outdoor relaxation areas, Zen-infused gardens and own private spa, this luxury holiday rental offers guests a rejuvenating sanctuary, yet is only a short drive away from some of the island’s finest surfing beaches and most cosmopolitan enclave, Seminyak. Passion, care and meticulous attention to detail have all been poured into the five-bedroom Villa Papaya.
Within the solid western architectural design, interiors are of the highest quality and abundant use is made of natural materials such as mahogany and granite. With an eye for traditional culture, the villa is tastefully adorned with exquisite Indonesian artworks, décor and antique pieces: framed antique Sulawesi warrior jackets line the corridors and carved Balinese chaise longue are thoughtfully provided on porches.
Frangipani flower greetings and a traditional floral and bamboo welcome placed on each bed are some of the Balinese rituals respectfully observed. The owner’s love of global travel is also evident with Buddhist statues dotting the gardens and antique carved African chairs.
The two acre property offers a great sense of spaciousness and sanctuary. Reflecting the tropical lifestyle, la piece de la resistance is a variety of outdoor areas to peacefully rest and relax.
All five ensuite bedrooms feature generous-sized balconies to savour Canggu’s rice fields and villa gardens, while the detached Rainforest Cottage boasts a jungle-style, outdoor bathroom. The strikingly designed infinity-edge pool offers another glorious spot for leisurely distractions.
Beyond the pool the beautifully landscaped gardens, dissected by a stream, slope down to a calming river and the soothing sounds of a waterfall. Step by step, through manicured lawns, trees and exotic blooms, the terraced gardens reveal a Balinese open-air lounge pavilion, three thatched balés (traditional gazebos) and a private spa for the exclusive use of guests.
Built in 2008 and now available for rental, this cherished family home extends a heartfelt Balinese welcome. The team of local staff, ever-friendly but discreetly present, are the icing on the cake of this truly magnificent property.
The four bedrooms in the main building, including the master bedroom, are equally spaced off the first floor landing, affording some privacy. A fifth bedroom rests separately in Rainforest Cottage. All five bedrooms feature air conditioning (no ceiling fans), king-sized beds and fine white cotton bedding. Bathrooms are contemporary and stylish, with glass cubicle showers, while the furniture is high quality, modern Indonesian. Delightful traditional touches include high bamboo-and grass-roofed ceilings, bathroom amenities stored in Balinese offerings boxes and Indonesian art works adorning the walls. In total, the villa sleeps ten adult guests, but provides a baby cot (foldable) and 2 extra beds (at additional charge).
First-floor master bedroom
The largest of the first floor bedrooms, the master bedroom boasts a generous-sized bathroom with sunken bathtub and his and hers sinks. Additionally, the expansive floor space allows room for couches and an ottoman. A 52-inch plasma TV is provided for DVD viewing.
First-floor guest bedrooms
The three bedrooms on the first floor are relatively similar in size and décor and all have spacious balconies with outdoor furniture. On clear days you can see Mount Agung and Bali’s highest peak, from bedrooms one and two. Arguably, bedroom three (the room furthest from the stairs) offers the best rice-field, sunset and sunrise views, which can be enjoyed from an antique Indonesian chaise lounge.
This lovely one-bedroom lodge, resting below the pool and beside the diminutive River Subak, makes for a wonderfully romantic bolt-hole. Surrounded by natural foliage, the entrance porch features an antique African chaise longue, while a second porch, facing the rainforest, supplies table and chairs. A 39-inch plasma TV is available for DVD viewing (with DVDs provided).
Open to the elements, the tropical-style bathroom features a stand-alone bathtub, glass cubicle shower, sink and toilet and takes in rainforest views and waterfall sounds. Modesty prevails with a curtain of banana plants and concertina-style, opaque panelling.

Luxury Villa Rentals Italy acts only as agents for accommodations and assumes no responsibility for property loss or damage, nor liability for injury, accident, delay or irregularity which may be occasioned either by reason or defect in any vehicle or the acts of any company or persons engaged in conveying the passengers to or from their accommodations. If for any reason beyond its control including force majeure, or the sale of the house, Luxury Villa Rentals Italy is forced to cancel the booking made by the client or his agent, best efforts will be made to offer another property of equivalent standard with which the client will be in agreement. If the price of the alternative property is less, the difference will be refunded to the client, but if the price is higher the client must pay the difference. If however, no agreement can be reached, both parties are entitled to cancel. Luxury Villa Rentals Italy will refund to the client only the rental price paid; no other amounts will become due.
Cancellations by You
Any cancellation by the client (for whatever reason) must be in writing (Including email or fax). The effective date of cancellation is the date we receive written notification. If the client cancels after the deposit has been paid, it will lose the deposit.
If the client cancels after the balance has been paid, it will lose both deposit and the balance.

A security deposit is required to cover the cost of any damages or breakages to, or at the property, any additional cleaning, the cost of telephone and/or other services/utilities that are not included in the rental price. This amount will be payable by the client direct to the Owner in cash in Euros at the arrival.
The cost of utilities and/or other services used by the client or any damage caused by the client will be deducted from the security deposit and the remaining balance will be returned to the client by the Owner at the departure from the villa. If the security deposit paid by the client is not sufficient to cover the cost of such utilities and/or services or damage, the Owner is entitled to recover any additional costs from the client.
It is a client's responsibility to make sure the client deals with the arrangements for the security deposit. We can take no responsibility for any loss in relation to the security deposit.
