Villa Iskandar is a serene riverside sanctuary, built into the banks of the Yeh Penet River in Bali’s Tabanan Regency.

Designed over three levels, this elegant villa comprises four air-conditioned bedrooms, a large free-form swimming pool and ironwood deck, an open-sided living room and a more formal dining room. A poolside dining area and a choice of balconies and decks provide endless options for relaxation. The property’s stunning contemporary architecture is harmonised with dark timbers and a Chinese-themed decor, completed with antique furnishings and artwork throughout.

Against a gorgeous backdrop of towering trees and thickets of giant bamboo, guests will be serenaded by the song of the river and the sounds of nature. Here, iridescent blue kingfishers, monitor lizards and other creatures are commonplace. This peaceful out-of-town location feels like it is miles from anywhere but is actually only 13 kilometres from the restaurants, nightlife and shops of Petitenget and Seminyak. A car and driver is available for up to 8 hours a day (at a special rate), to whisk you off for a night on the town or for a visit at the picturesque Tanah Lot sea temple.

Iskandar shares a dedicated 400-square-metre event space with its neighbour Villa Atacaya. When the two villas – known collectively as the Nyanyi Riverside Villas – are rented together they offer a nine-bedroom option for large groups of friends and extended families.

Complemented by sophisticated facilities, caring staff and superb service, Iskandar offers a truly beautiful setting for weddings and events, and is great for families and groups of friends who are looking for a luxurious close-to-nature escape.

Location

Villa Iskandar is situated in a jungle-fringed river gorge close to the village of Beraban in Bali’s Tabanan regency, which is known as Bali’s ‘rice bowl’ due to its vast terraced rice fields. This quaint village bordering a river is a rare example of a traditional Balinese community barely touched by tourism and the rapid development to the south of the island. Villa guests are accorded a privileged insight into the agricultural, religious and daily life of the friendly villagers. Just four kilometres away is the famed Tanah Lot sea temple. The nearest surf beaches, including Echo Beach, are about eight kilometres from the villa.

Things to do

Villa Iskandar’s manager will have a wealth of information about nearby places of interest and will help arrange transport and make any bookings required. Do also ask the staff about the local area. Many of them live nearby and will be able to give an interesting insight into some of the fascinating aspects of Bali life

In the meantime, here is a taste of the many and varied activities on offer within reach of the villa.

  • Villa Iskandar is close to the famous temple at Tanah Lot (4km), although 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.
  • A nice sunset alternative is to head down to Echo Beach (8km) where a number of cafes offer good sunset views and cold beer. Note that the beach here is dark volcanic sand and the waters are better suited to surfing, having a pronounced swell and rip, rather than children’s swimming.
  • Hotel Tugu, a very stylish and eclectic boutique hotel a few minutes further down the coast from Echo Beach is also a good sunset spot, or try the more casual cafe across the road; Old Man’s for alfresco all day dining.
  • Fashionistas, trendies and shop-a-holics should hot-foot it down to Seminyak, Bali’s most cosmopolitan enclave (13km). 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, Merah Putih, Petitenget, La Lucciola, Sardine and Métis.
  • Drive westwards to explore the charming Tabanan regency, revealing terraced rice fields of emerald green, volcanic mountains and black-sand beaches dotted with fishing communities. You may wish to visit the breathtaking panorama of the Jatiluwih rice terraces (40km), which has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2008 for its preservation of traditional Balinese farming techniques. At a height of 850m above sea level, the view here is one of the finest imaginable. Alternatively, 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.
  • Bali Treetop Adventure Park is near the town of Bedugal in northern central Bali (next to Lake Bratan). Five adventure circuits, with heights ranging from two to 20 metres, challenge all level and ages on suspended bridges, spider nets, Tarzan jumps and 12 flying foxes.
  • The most exclusive Bali trekking tour promises breath-taking vistas and heart-warming encounters while supporting sustainable social change in the once-forgotten villages of Muntigunung. Elite Havens is a proud partner of Muntigunung Community Social Enterprise.
  • 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.

Jordan S, , 04-Sep-2014 - 07-Sep-2014

We very much enjoyed our stay at Villa Iskandar, we rented both Iskandar and Atacaya which were right next to each other and great for group bookings. It was very peaceful, relaxing and great to get out of the busy areas of Seminyak for a few days and see the real Bali. The service was outstanding as staff were always willing to help and create the most enjoyable experience possible. We would love to visit the villa again!
