Tirtha Bayu Estate
The villa you chose is no longer available for rental from us but we have a portfolio of Elite Havens in various locations around South East Asia for you to choose from. Alternatively feel free to send us an enquiry and it'll be our pleasure to help you find the perfect villa for your next holiday.
Sprawled across a clifftop overlooking the tranquil Cemagi Beach, Tirtha Bayu Estate is blessed with stunning 180-degree ocean vistas stretching to the southern tip of Bali. Extraordinarily generous in space, these two villas combine to offer 11 luxurious bedrooms. With myriad indoor and outdoor living spaces and welcoming staff including a Villa Manager and talented private chef, the estate is ideal for extended families and groups in search of a rejuvenating getaway.
Tirtha means sacred water in Sanskrit, and Bayu translates as the wind that brings life, apt given the estate’s astonishing sea views and fresh coastal breeze. While Canggu, with its buzzing beach clubs and stylish restaurants, is just nine kilometres away, Cemagi Beach is blissfully peaceful. It offers you a unique opportunity to immerse yourself in traditional Balinese Hindu culture, with a path right outside the estate leading to two ornate clifftop temples. Sunsets here are sublime, while evenings take on their magical allure with flourishing tropical gardens illuminated by spotlights and lanterns.
Modern Balinese design aesthetics meet elegant furnishings and traditional decorative features in the three-story, six-bedroom Villa I which overlooks a 14-metre infinity pool and was completed in 2022. It connects via ornate Balinese gates with Villa II, which is slightly more traditional and artistic in style, with soaring Torajan-inspired pitched ceilings, a fabulous collection of hand-carved furniture and a 32-metre expansive infinity pool framed by coconut palms and frangipani trees.
Weddings and events are a speciality here, with verdant terraced lawns, expansive sun decks and a delightful self-contained honeymoon suite.

Rates and availability
Tirtha Bayu Estate is located right above a picturesque beach in the serene Seseh-Tanah Lot region of south-west Bali. The area is blissfully semi-rural, with little development apart from a scattering of luxury villas, making it a great opportunity to glimpse traditional Balinese life. The black sand beach can be explored at low tide, but dangerous rips and submerged rocks make it unsuitable for swimming. A clifftop path just outside the villa leads to a small sea temple that clings to the craggy cliffs and is visible from the estate. Following the path around the headland, you will come to Pura Gede Luhur Batu Ngaus, a larger temple perched on a headland which makes an atmospheric spot for sunset (and a peaceful yet equally picturesque alternative to Tanah Lot). Small warungs with beanbags and rustic furnishing serve up cold beer, coconuts and local food.
While Tirtha Bayu may feel like a world away from everything, it’s merely nine kilometres from Echo Beach and all the exciting delights of Canggu.More information for Things to do
Tirtha Bayu Estate is located in Sesh-Tanah Lot within the Badung Regency, home to some of Bali’s most iconic attractions. The Villa Manager will have a wealth of information about places to visit nearby and staff will also be happy to share their unique insider information on the area. If you need any help making arrangements for transport or tours, the Elite Concierge is always on hand.
- Tirtha Bayu Estate is close to one of Bali’s most popular attractions - the famous Tanah Lot Temple (9km), a beautiful site set on a rocky, wave-battered island just metres off the beach. In peak season, a few too many tourists may transform a sunset visit into more of a heaving photo opportunity than a moving experience. Visiting early in the morning (8-9am) provides a better idea of the power of the location and the chance to see it undisturbed apart from perhaps an offering ceremony.
- Explore the charming Tabanan Regency and its 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.
- Acclaimed as the world’s best, the atmospheric Elephant Safari Park in Taro (north of Ubud) provides a sanctuary for elephants rescued from Sumatra, with opportunities for trekking, hand feeding, and photo taking. There is also a fascinating museum and an excellent restaurant in a beautiful tropical setting deep in the forests of Bali’s hinterland.
- Explore the scenic rice-field landscape and rural villages; 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.
- Visit the hotspot of Echo Beach, home to world-class beach clubs as well as quirky cafes offering a tantalising range of cuisines from around the world. You will also find classy day spas, aesthetic clinics and bespoke boutiques.
- Covering 3.8 hectares of tropical parkland in Kuta, Waterbom Bali has 16 water slides (including The Climax with its 360-degree loop) to entertain the young and the young at heart. A great family day out, but go early to beat the crowds. Image from Travel Advisor - Waterbom Bali Management
- Horse riding at Kuda P stables on professionally trained horses and ponies will take you through the lush rice terraces around Kerobokan, or provide the chance for a sunset gallop through the surf along the rugged south-west coast.
- Fashionistas, trendies and shopaholics should hot-foot it down to Seminyak, Bali’s most cosmopolitan enclave (15km). 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 Mama San and Merah Putih.

Wake to sea views and a tasty a la carte breakfast of fresh fruits, a selection of cooked items and barista-style coffee. The chef is also at your service to prepare lunch and dinner on request and is highly experienced at preparing a variety of cuisines from Mediterranean to Asian and vegetarian. This is the perfect opportunity for you to try Balinese signature dishes such as satay lilit (fish satay cooked on lemongrass stalks) and bebek betutu (a specialty of duck cooked in herbs).
The chef can also grill up a feast of fresh seafood grilled on the barbecue, and tailor meals to accommodate any special dietary requirements or specific requests. To make the most of the kitchen and give staff time to shop, it is a good idea to plan lunch and dinner selections the evening before.
