A holiday here includes
Set in a beautiful rural area of rice fields and jungle-clad river valleys in Tabanan, this splendid four-bedroom villa occupies an expansive two hectare estate flowing down a terraced hillside in south-west Bali, within pristine Balinese gardens. The Arsana Estate offers the perfect setting for large family and group retreats, weddings and events as it blends an exceptional location with outstanding facilities and an exceptional team of villa staff.
The Arsana Estate is a completely self-contained villa, giving guests no real need to venture out at all, but a visit to the nearby village – one of the prettiest in Bali – and experience a true example of Balinese community and village life should not be missed.
The very name of the villa describes its thoughtful layout. Arsana means ‘flow’ in Sanskrit, and not only does the villa’s name aptly describe the way The Arsana Estate’s individual bedroom and living pavilions cascade down the hillside into the nearby valley, but also the Sungi River that meanders past its lower boundary. Water features abound at The Arsana Estate, where ponds, water walls, waterfalls, and an 19m x 7m swimming pool with a separate children’s section will refresh, relax and delight villa guests. The villa also has its own tennis court and a very large green space for children.
The villa’s sleek modern structures, with their ironwood shingle roofs and abundance of glass, reflect the ambiance of the location and the purity of the natural surroundings, while the interiors are characterised with a bold use of colour and luxurious furnishings. Presenting many different options for large groups to dine or entertain, the villa also has a cinema room as well as a games room, complete with a pool table. Unique artwork adorns what solid wall space there is, while the front facade of the living pavilion is an abstract notion of floor-to-ceiling glass doors and windows that remain open to the elements.
The villa’s four bedroom suites, housed in three stand-alone pavilions, include a spectacular multi-roomed master pavilion and an eight-bedded children's slumber room, spread leisurely across the terraces of the estate. Fully outfitted for families, each room has a separate day bed area suitable to sleep children. with an abundance of children’s toys, plus games and activities for adults too, this stunning sanctuary with its team of personal butlers, housekeepers and chefs, offers guests nothing but pleasure and relaxation.
Attentive, smiling staff

"14 of us in the group and we all had an excellent time. Personally loved the design of the place. The staff all happy and healthy. We left the villa just once as felt no need to leave. Thanks for the excellent week Rai and the team. There are not many places on earth we say we'll come to. But truly believe we'll be back to Arsana Estate."

The Arsana Estate occupies two hectares of glorious terraced hillside gardens bordered by a jungle-clad river in the quiet traditional village of Nyambu in the Tabanan Regency of Southwest Bali. Known as Bali’s ‘rice bowl’, this fertile area features rice fields unfurling to the horizon, where farmers follow the rhythms of their forefathers and our guests can witness village life little changed in generations. Bali’s iconic Tanah Lot sea temple and famed surfing beaches are just over 10 kilometres away, Canggu’s hip bars and cafés about the same distance, and the restaurants and boutiques of Seminyak around half an hour’s drive to the east.
Things to do
The Arsana Estate’s guest relations manager has a wealth of information about nearby places of interest and will help arrange transport and make any bookings required. Chat to the staff too; many have been attached to the villa for some time and are a great source of insider information.
In the meantime, here’s a taste of the many and varied activities on offer within reach of the villa.
- With its warm seas, almost year-round season, uncrowded beaches and reef breaks suitable for all levels of experience, Bali surfing is world renowned. Seseh and Canggu are popular surf spots within easy reach of The Arsana Estate.
- Explore the scenic rice-field landscape and rural villages by bicycle; a great way to get under the skin of the 'real' Bali. Stop off at a local warung (café) to sample some basic Balinese fare or cool off with a cold drink.
- If you’ve always dreamed of galloping along a beach or even swimming with horses, now’s your chance. Bali Island Horse Stables at Pantai Yeh Gangga is an Australian owned outfit just up the coast from Tanah Lot Temple.
- Visit the mystical Hotel Tugu (Bali’s first museum-hotel) studded with priceless Indonesian artworks and antiques and its award-winning spa offers age-old Eastern therapies. If you’re planning a honeymoon, this makes a wonderful first night venue. The hotel's restaurants offer authentic Chinese and Indonesian fine dining, as well as an international menu, in a variety of unique settings. At the rustic Waroeng Tugu you can taste the traditional Javanese and Balinese cuisine of bygone centuries.
- Make a pilgrimage to sacred Pura Tanah Lot, one of Bali’s most celebrated sea temples. Perched high on a craggy, wave-lashed rock, this ancient place of worship is best savoured at sunset; be sure to receive a blessing from the Hindu Priests (and watch out for the monkeys, who are very adept at helping themselves to anything from snacks to sunglasses and even cameras!)
- Explore Bali's backroads, lakes, volcanoes, forests and beaches on the back of a Harley Davidson bike with Bali Eagle Bikers. Full day Harley tours, customised tours or shorter joy rides can all be accommodated.
- Fashionistas, trendies and shop-a-holics should hot-foot it down to Seminyak, Bali’s most cosmopolitan enclave. Here, you can indulge for hours in the glut of stylish, chic boutiques. There is a wide choice of fine dining, mid range, and cheap ‘n cheerful restaurants in Seminyak too: fine dining venues include Sarong, the famous Ku Dé Ta, Mama San, La Lucciola, Sardine and Métis.
- There's a strip of restaurants and cafés at Echo Beach offering a wide range of dining options from chic and sceneful to cheap and cheerful. Or head a little further down the coast and explore the ever-expanding choice of hip cafés and healthy eateries along Jalan Pantai Batu Bolong in Canggu.
- Explore the charming local Tabanan Regency, revealing terraced rice fields of emerald green, volcanic mountains and black-sand beaches dotted with fishing communities. Or head north to explore the volcanic lakes near the mountain town of Bedugul, including Lake Bratan with its photogenic and stunningly positioned Pura Ulun Danu – one of Bali’s most important temples.

We left the villa just once as felt no need to leave. Thanks for the excellent week Rai and the team. There are not many places on earth we say we'll come to.

Peter D, Australia, 07-Feb-2020 - 11-Feb-2020I stayed at the wonderful property with a group of friends for a far too brief 4 nights. Everything about the property and experience was superlative. We had intended to go out and explore but we absolutely felt no need, as the villa has everything one could possible require - wonderful, kind staff, a stunning pool and multiple places to relax. The food was better than anywhere we had outside. Especially to the babi guling and mixed BBQ. I Hope to return again very soon.
Emma B, Australia, 15-Jan-2020 - 25-Jan-2020Beautiful villa with stunning art works, well appointed furniture styled to perfection. The maze of gardens are beautiful and clearly a massive job to maintain. The pool is big and perfect for large groups, always clean and a perfect temperature. We have particularly enjoyed dining at the large open room being served various dishes. Our favourite were eg. beef rendang, nasi goreng, daily omlettes and yummy local desserts. Our children had daily burgers and carbonara for 10 days straight. The wifi is awesome too!! Its everywhere including the gym.
Jhon S, Indonesia, 31-Dec-2019 - 05-Jan-2020Seluruh staff sangat ramah. Pelayanan cukup bagus. Penjagaan juga ketat, jadi nyaman. Rapih dan bersih. Keseluruhan bagus sekali.
Alaine C, Philippines, 26-Dec-2019 - 31-Dec-2019We had a wonderful experience, staff is very accommodating. We love their Aglio Olio, Spring Roll, Spaghetti with meat sauce, Mie Goreng and Nasi Goreng. The pool temperature is perfect. The villa is complete there is no need to got to the city unless shopping is needed.
Mark W, Malta, 13-Nov-2019 - 17-Nov-2019The single best place I ever stayed...anywhere.
Michael S, Indonesia, 01-Oct-2019 - 07-Oct-2019Very attentive to our needs. Service amazing, villa very clean and tidy. Foods beautiful, kids loved all the foods. All staff very friendly. A very relaxing holiday.
Laura-Lee K, Australia, 26-Sep-2019 - 01-Oct-2019Resort size, boutique feel. Amazing, wonderful and kind staff. Personalized service with special attention on special occasions. No request too difficult, staff were willing to accommodate. Any request always delivered with excellence.
Costagliola P, France, 03-Aug-2019 - 17-Aug-2019We are really happy to contribute with these comments to the strong and deserved reputation of The Arsana Estate as a top standard. This was a wonderful holiday during these two weeks spent in Bali. The villa, staff and all the facilities have strongly and warmly taken part in these two weeks in paradise. We would like to thank you all for this amazing trip. The time we spent was exceptional and maybe too fast. The staff all very kind and funny, we will remember this trip for long time.
Mark B, Switzerland, 22-Jul-2019 - 27-Jul-2019We are seasoned Bali holiday makers. As we stepped in, we were overwhelmed by the beauty of the villa. We enjoyed the facilities provided with full privacy. We must commend the exceptionally skilled Chef. Every meal we had was enjoyable. We will not hesitate to return given the peaceful and relaxing experience we had. Thank you for the wonderful experience.
Nasim A, Netherlands, 12-Jul-2019 - 22-Jul-2019Thank you so much for having us as guests for ten nights. We have traveled the world and seen and been to the most beautiful places. Only this villa and staff can be described in one word - extraordinary. Top class breakfast, lunch and dinner. The place is spotlessly clean and it has a western quality in an Asian Decor. I would not recommend it to just anyone because this hidden gem is not for tourism. Makasi banyak to all the crew and Manager Rai. Hope to see you soon.
Mark M, Australia, 14-May-2019 - 25-May-2019This last 10 days has been unforgettable. From the first minute, you made us feel at home. From cooking and cleaning, to taking care of our children, nothing was too much trouble. You were all amazing. We came for a few weeks of holidays and we are leaving as family. We love you all so much and wish you all the best.
Chris E, Indonesia, 27-Apr-2019 - 03-May-2019We have had such an incredible time here at Arsana. The service made it feel like family away from home. We will certainly be looking again in the future for our next holiday to Bali.
Shellie M, Australia, 30-Mar-2019 - 04-Apr-2019We loved our stay. Food was excellent and the villa was amazing. All of the staff are very friendly. Our kids made the most of the pool and media room. Thank you Rai and staff for looking after us.
Vivien K, Singapore, 16-Mar-2019 - 20-Mar-2019For the last few years we have always had holidays in Bali. Highlight of every trip is "villa shopping" and arriving at our villa of choice. Every year to out do the previous one. This year we chanced upon the Arsana Estate. It was heaven sent. We were already excited about the tennis court, cinema, gym, pool table and the large estate. On arrival, the place took our breath away. Place is massive, clean and beautiful. Staff led by Rai were always on hand to assist us and made our stay so enjoyable. The kids and adults have unanimously agreed that the search is over and we will definitely will come back. If not for anything else, for the wonderful food served from the master kitchen, worthwhile calories.
Debi P, United States, 09-Mar-2019 - 13-Mar-2019We loved our stay at The Arsana Estate. The estate is beautiful and everything we could have hoped for down to the last detail. The staff were amazing and friendly, and the food was very good. Rai was the perfect villa manager and saw to our every need. Thank you for such a wonderful time. We would love to come back.
Joel M, Australia, 30-Nov-2018 - 03-Dec-2018As a food and travel blogger, I have enjoyed traveling around the world and staying in many amazing locations. The Arsana Estate is one of the best places I have stayed in. The service from Rai and all of the staff has been second to none. Always friendly and nothing is too much trouble. The meals were always tasty and delicious and the facilities on the property were first class. We can highly recommend Arsana to everyone.
Irene A, United Kingdom, 06-Aug-2018 - 30-Aug-2018Our three weeks stay at Arsana has been magical. We have been thoroughly spoilt with the services given by all the staff here. It’s never an effort for them and they have always worn a smile on their faces. Rai the Manager has been fantastic with the organization of all our needs. She seems to have a magic wand and makes it all happen. She has made Arsana a very special home. Ketut and Nengah are just excellent in the kitchen. Not only did the kitchen look professional but they both worked well in there and they were even willing to try to cook something that was new to them. We have really enjoyed our meals each time. The daily staff made it all perfect for us with their creativity - flower arrangements on the table, napkins folded differently every time. The Arsana home always looked immaculate and we really appreciated every little touch. Walking round the Estate, we also realized how hard the gardeners work to keep the garden looking so beautiful. We very much enjoyed the natural surroundings.
Priscilla W, Singapore, 26-Jul-2018 - 31-Jul-2018Second time back and the place looks even better than before. The experience is as stunning. Superb staff that make our stay very convenient, comfortable and relaxing! Thank you for the stunning decorations and performance for our special birthday celebration and the care for those who were unwell! Food great. Great scenery. See ya soon!
Laura M, Australia, 11-Jul-2018 - 21-Jul-2018We had a truly memorable 10 days here at Arsana. With such beautifully well maintained areas, it has been a delight to unwind and immerse ourselves in the local village and all the experiences staying in a village can provide. Thank you to all the staff for making our stay so comfortable. The food was insurmountable! Sampai Jumpa.
Numa J, Vietnam, 08-Jun-2018 - 11-Jun-2018Gentilesse, calme, qualite, merci pour tout, en esperant revenir tre vite, tous mes invites ont passe un magnifique moment, dans a petit paradis.
Craig M, Australia, 22-Apr-2018 - 25-Apr-2018A truly special three days at Arsana. Stunning surroundings and every detail was perfect. Many thanks for the special memories!
Tony B, Indonesia, 05-Jan-2018 - 13-Jan-2018Well, what can I say? Apart from "WOW". Such an amazing experience here at Arsana. 7* establishment, with 7*staff! Just absolutely out of this world. See you all next year! Thanks.
Stephane N, France, 26-Oct-2017 - 05-Nov-2017Second time I come in this wonderful place. Nice renovation and people are always so welcoming and wonderful. The place is always so calm and relaxing.

cath Griffin, Australia, 03-Jul-2015 - 07-Jul-2015Our family holiday at the Arsana Estate was amazing The actual villa and its staff were fabulous It was a truly unique experience. We spent time in and out of the villa and were treated to top quality facilites, service and food. The pool an it cleanliness was outstanding and beautiful to swim amongst. The drivers to the and from the estate were incredibly friendly and helpful.
Susannah Z, Australia, 24-Jun-2015 - 02-Jul-2015Arsana is an intimate oasis that has been 'home' to our families for this beautiful holiday. We all (13 in total) have loved our time here, spent poolside, relaxing. Enormous thanks to the beautiful staff who have cared and looked after us so well. Thank you.
Karen Sarjeant, Australia, 05-Jun-2015 - 10-Jun-2015We had the pleasure of staying at the Arsana Estate for 5 nights 5-10June. It was one of the most magical places I have stayed at. The estate is so spacious. From the moment we arrived at the Villa, we were treated like royalty (and we were treated like this, right up until our waves goodbye). All of the staff enjoy their jobs and it shows! We travelled with 9 adults and a 3 year old and a 6 month old. The staff were all very helpful with the children. Tia was amazing. Always offering to hold our little girl, whilst we we eating our meals. (Thank you). The meals were amazing (thanks chef). breakfast, lunch and dinner was prepared everyday at whatever time we requested to eat. The whole estate was cleaned every morning before we woke and the pool area all set up with towels etc for the day. On our 3rd day, was the most special day of our stay. Our wedding day! One we will remember forever! I can't thank everyone enough for the effort and input to make our day so special! All the staff worked so hard., from setting up tables, cleaning the grounds and the list goes on. Our wedding dinner , prepared by Arsana was absolutely Divine! After our dinner, we were surprised by a lovely gift. Balinese Dance show, Thank you ever so much! Amazing. Each Villa on the estate was immaculate. The bathrooms with the opening doors to the pond are so beautiful! My little boy loved the trampoline and also loved fishing in the fishponds (thanks guys). I really look forward to coming back and staying at the Arsana Estate again. I wish we didn't have to leave. We can honestly say...........One of the best places we have stayed at....Thank you x
Julia H, Singapore, 28-May-2015 - 01-Jun-2015Thank you for a wonderful and restful stay, it was a trip to remember. Gorgeous home and location and the lovely staff made for an excellent relaxing stay.
Shannon H, Indonesia, 19-May-2015 - 23-May-2015You guys are so amazing. Thank you so much for everything you have done for us. Your service is perfect. We hope to make it back to Bali soon.
Lynda H, Indonesia, 14-May-2015 - 17-May-2015Beautiful villa. Thank you for your wonderful hospitality, you helped make our wedding moments ones we will treasure forever. It was very hard to leave the pool! Cheers for the memories.
Joo Hsiu L, Hong Kong, 04-Apr-2015 - 09-Apr-2015Our group of 4 families with 7 children aged 5-15 enjoyed our 5-night stay over Easter. The facilities are fantastic - we loved the trampoline, the lawn with football goal, the sizeable pool, the amazing kids' bunk room which everyone wanted to sleep in, a huge media room with an impressive selection of DVDs, and the food especially the Mee Goreng, pisang goreng, kuih dadar, pancakes. The villa staff looked after us well and helped us with arrangements within and outside the villa. The Arsana is well located for those also considering a visit to Ubud which is just 45 mins away. Otherwise there is plenty to do at the villa if you don't want to make the 45 minute journey into Seminyak. Overall a wonderful holiday for us, and I would enthusiastically recommend it to parties visiting with a group of children.
Julie Quenneville, Australia, 20-Dec-2014 - 27-Dec-2014We had a great stay at the Villa, the staff were fantastic, nothing was ever too much! The ambiance was very relaxing and the villa has the best pool ever. Food cooked for us was superb, overall a 5 star service and location, great for families.
Michael S, Australia, 06-Jul-2014 - 13-Jul-2014Fantastic villa for groups and families with loads of space and plenty to satisfy everyone. The staff are what really make it so great though as they cater to every whim with a smile. If you are looking for somewhere for a group and want to maximum relaxation with a peaceful environment then this is the place for you!
Matthew W, Singapore, 08-May-2014 - 11-May-2014For a 7 year old villa, the upkeep is superb. Very often for hotels the published photos are miles away from the actual thing. This however was not the case. The team running in place was superb, tending to our every need. Special thanks to Adek and Desy. Highly recommended for a group with kids/teens as they will be fully entertained while you enjoy a massage or lounge by the pool.
Queen Crisologo, Philippines, 27-Nov-2013 - 28-Nov-2013If you plan to have a relaxing holiday and away from the bustling town and noise of traffic, this is the perfect place to stay. Nature is abundant which surrounds the villa, giving you an immediate relaxing feeling but with the comforts of technology (for people who can't get away from work).
Kevin L, Malaysia, 01-Nov-2013 - 05-Nov-2013Everything works in harmony in this villa. The calm serenity and scenery is picturesque, the wide open spaced living room with large sliding windows keeping the area airy and cool, the pool and the individual villas separated across the property. The staffs, polite and ever attentive to your needs. Media, games room and water polo kept us entertained for hours. Wander around the property and you would find jackfruit, milk fruit (star apple), pineapple and coconut trees scattered across. Orange room is great for kids. Words of caution: Maintenance of the property is not 100% top notch, many steps to negotiate, bumpy roads leading into the villa and it is about an hour to 90 mins away from the Kuta area (might be good for some, it's an escape from the busy area)
Wallis L, , 05-Oct-2013 - 19-Oct-2013We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Desi, Pande, Ketut and all the staff were fantastic. This villa has got it all. We felt like we were completely at home, and we're sad to leave. In fact we barely left the villa. Some difficulty in arriving with our previous hotel driver getting a bit lost and it took almost two hours on a crazily bumpy road, but the villa driver was amazing and there was a much much easier way to get in and out. Food was excellent, and Ketut even gave us a cooking lesson one day. We miss his satay, prawn and glass noodle salad, and peanut sauce, but he kindly shared his recipes with us and we will enjoy the memories when we cook them at home and try to replicate his dishes. All the villa staff were amazing, and friendly, and were always on hand to get anything you need, without ever feeling intruded upon. We lived poolside and with daily spa treatments from the visiting day spa ladies, we were in pure relaxation heaven. Thanks so much for a wonderful two weeks in paradise. Some minor maintenance issues with air conditioning remote controls in the main house not working so well, and the floorboards in the master suite and main house were in need of some repairs, the dining room setting was overdue for an upgrade, with the upholstery on its last legs. But with some maintenance work, this place will not disappoint. The tranquility was wonderful, and so nice to be away from the crowds of Seminyak, and even Ubud these days. I definitely recommend this villa. We had children for the first week, and the stairs can be a bit of an issue with younger children, or people with mobility problems. But the staff are lovely and always helping out to entertain the little ones. Our Second week was a group of friends, and we had an equally lovely time. If you want to totally relax in a beautiful location, with separate private suites for everybody, with nobody else about, I highly recommend this villa. Thanks Arsana.
Jodie W, Australia, 16-Sep-2013 - 19-Sep-2013A huge thank you to Pak Dandi, Made and all of the staff for the most amazing stay at the Arsana Estate! We held our wedding at this villa (60 people cocktail style) and no words can describe how perfect of a setting it was, it was like something from a movie set! We were completely speechless when we first arrived and couldn't believe how gorgeous the estate was, and our guests were blown away as well. The level of service we experienced from all of the staff was 5 star, and the chef, Ketut, created some amazing feasts for us. I highly recommend the Arsana Estate not only for a wedding, but for a family holiday or reunion, staff workshop / team building event or a getaway with a group of friends. Thank you again for a wedding (and holiday) of a lifetime....we will be back!
Georgia Kelly ., Australia, 25-Jul-2013 - 02-Aug-2013The villa and staff were fabulous. The views, the space and the layout perfect for our extended family holiday. Ketut's cooking was another highlight of our stay, every meal just delicious. The villa staff attended to our every need , this truly was a relaxing and indulgent holiday.
Natalie B, Australia, 08-Jul-2013 - 13-Jul-2013We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Arsana Estate. The villa grounds were beautifully landscaped and maintained. The staff were helpful and engaging, and provided a fantastic service. Unfortunately, the villa is probably not suitable to very small children - we encountered a number of issues including access to bedrooms, the number of steps on the property, and being able to monitor them appropriately from the various levels. Otherwise, the villa was relaxing and tranquil - we will certainly be recommending it to other friends.
Michael Yuen, Canada, 14-May-2013 - 18-May-2013Very bumpy ride, the holes on the road leading to the villa should be filled in.
KC, Singapore, 28-Mar-2013 - 02-Apr-2013In our years of travel to Bali, we've come across many villas but none as special and memorable as Arsana. Service was impecable as was attitude. We were assisted with every need and felt overly pampered throughout our stay. For a villa 6 years of age, we must admit that it is very well maintained. We were impressed with the sprawling grounds, facilities and rooms. We had in our group two young children who enjoyed their stay and had fun each day tumbling on the trampoline, scoring goals at the small soccer pitch and floating on mini inflatables at the pool. We will be back for more fun times!
Bridget Bailey, Australia, 13-Oct-2012 - 18-Oct-2012The Arsana was a fantastic choice for our Wedding. We had an amazing time and the staff are an asset to the Villa. Thank you Ketut for the beautiful meals and Nyoman and Wayan and all the other staff who made our stay a memorable one. Bridget, Todd, Baylee and Kalani Brown Oct 2012
FA, Hong Kong, 05-Jul-2012 - 10-Jul-2012Absolutely fantastic. The villa is secluded and amazing. It had a very charming appeal and the atmosphere was very calming. What a great way to relax!! The staff were friendly and very accommodating. We will be coming back regularly.
Simone Sewell, Australia, 20-Apr-2012 - 25-Apr-2012fantastic place something very special as we have been coming to bali at least twice a year for many years I would have to say this was by far the best place we have stayed we loved the location and all the facilites .Our children never wanted to leave the villa as they just liked being there. The staff were exceptionally always there to help but never annoying!!!! We looking forward to returning later in the year.
VB, Belgium, 09-Apr-2012 - 14-Apr-2012Une villa de charme qui enchante par la gentillesse des membres de l'équipe. L'endroit est idéal pour fuir le stress de la vie quotidienne. Calme et sérénité. Ce n'est pas, pour autant, un endroit d'ascétisme. Le chef vous prépare des petits plats à la hauteur de vos désirs.
