TWO-CENTRED HOLIDAY: Visitors to Bali who would like to see more of the island might like to consider combining a stay at this villa with our WOODEN LAKESIDE VILLA in Bedugul - www.homeaway.co.uk/85226. As well as golf, there are other outdoor pursuits in Bedugul to take advantage of the cool, fresh air, such as trekking in the rain forest, and visiting remote temples and volcanoes. You can also use this property as a base for exploring North Bali.
The two properties are very different and although they are only one hour's drive apart, the climate in Bedugul is much cooler.
If you are interested in GOLF, then the two villas combine to give you close access to two of the most picturesque golf courses in Asia. The Nirwana (managed by Le Meridien) is at Tanah Lot. The Pancasari Country Club is a spectacular course in the crater of a volcano adjacent to property no 85226.
If you want to split your holiday between several villas, we can offer advice on where to go, and provide transport to and from our properties.
Please note that Villa Tukad and the Bedugul property are NON-PROFIT MAKING ventures. All rental proceeds go to the staff, the village, the government and local suppliers.
When you're ready to book, here are some tips to keep in mind.

VILLA TUKAD is close to local beaches (Batu Bolong and Echo Beach) and a short drive from dozens of bars and restaurants including those at Canggu/Batu Bolong. Local restaurants have also opened recently offering Indonesian, Asian and Western food. Many other options for dining and designer shopping in Seminyak about 30 mins drive.
The villa is secluded with complete privacy and security. The veranda looks out over exclusive terraced tropical gardens dropping down to a river in a deep valley skirted by tall, exotic trees. There are many nearby bakeries, local shops and markets (10 mins) and western supermarkets (20 mins).
The staff can shop for all your food and drink requirements if you like. Echo Beach has cafe/restaurant and bar open all day, and seafood barbecue. Temples in the village have traditional music and ceremonies.
You can easily cycle to the local beaches (20-30 mins) or out into the the traditional villages and rice terraces. (Walking to the beach is not recommended). There is a golf, spa resort and sports club at Tanah Lot (15 min), and Ubud, the major cultural centre of Bali is 45 min by car across countryside.
Unlike many Bali villas, Villa Tukad is away from the main traffic bottlenecks of Seminyak, Legian and Kuta. It is easy to cycle, drive or walk from the villa through picturesque lanes.
OTHER ACTIVITIES: our full time villa manager and staff can help you to find local cultural activities, and can arrange MASSAGE and SPA TREATMENTS in the villa.
SURFING for beginners and experts can be arranged at Batu Bolong Beach and Echo Beach at Canggu (15 mins).
DIVING trips can be arranged at North and South Bali sites, and we can arrange DAY TOURS to any of the cultural sites in Bali, Safari Park etc., or onward travel to Lombok, Gilli Islands etc. The nearby Nirwana resort offers sports activities and a comprehensive spa - day or weekly membership can easily be obtained.
HORSE RIDING on the beach at Canggu is only ten minutes away.
If you are interested in learning to play the GAMALAN or in BALINESE cooking, we can arrange for someone to come to the villa.
For YOGA and PILATES, just ask the villa manager to arrange.
MOST IMPORTANTLY, note that Villa Tukad is a very special place. We have had WEDDINGS here, and many other occasions have been celebrated. Because it is so private and the gardens are so special, many guests have found this a very SPIRITUAL place and a place of HEALING.
Whatever your plans, make sure you spend at least one full day doing nothing but relaxing by the pool, gardens, verandah, and let the staff look after you, or send them away and have it all to yourself!
CRAFTS: you can see many local crafts in the villages - stone and wood carving, pottery, painting etc.
NIGHTLIFE, LIVE MUSIC, BARS and DISCO: you might be surprised how sophisticated the night life is in Bali. Its not Ibiza, but it has its share of vibrant contemporary places to check out. The beach roads of Seminyak, Legian and Kuta have a selection of nightspots, and there are less sophisticated live music venues on the beach at Canggu (10 mins).
GOLF: The Pan Pacific Nirwana golf club offers one of the best golf courses in Asia. Overlooking Tanah Lot temple and the Indian Ocean, this Greg Norman designed course is incredibly picturesque.
TEMPLES: Two of the most important temples in Bali are with an easy 20 minute drive: TANAH LOT is on a rocky promontory and often viewed at sunset. MENGWI temple is visited more by local people than by tourists, but it is the most important temple in the region and you will not be hassled by people trying to sell you things. There are some artists with studios near the temple, but this is not a major tourist site.
One of recommended drivers can take you on FULL DAY sightseeing tours, rates are inclusive of petrol, driver's food etc. You can visit anywhere in Bali from the villa in a ONE DAY tour, and be back in time for a lovely dinner cooked by our highly commended cook.
FOR A TWO CENTRE HOLIDAY, consider combining a week at Villa Tukad with one at our 3 bed/ 2 bath lakeside cabin in the mountains overlooking Lake Bratan (Bedugul). You will appreciate the fresh mountain air and the cooler temperatures for a change, and can use this as a base for exploring the many attractions of North Bali.

About: Retired English professor and his wife who divide their time between their homes in Bali and Dorset.
Why Mengwi, Mengwi, Badung Regency, Bali, Republic of Indonesia:
Villa Tukad is far enough from the bustle of Bali's tourist resorts to provide a real experience of life in a Balinese village. Although the property is in a village, it is very secluded with high walls containing the fabulous gardens. It has all the luxuries and much more space than most holiday villas, and these are the reasons we chose it as our retirement home. The property comes with the best staff you could hope for, and they have been with us for 12 years now. There are now dozens of restaurants, shops and sites within a short drive, so for us it is in the perfect position, secluded, connected with 'real' Bali, but not too far from tourist Bali when we want to a night out or some retail therapy.
The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
Guests and friends who have stayed at Villa Tukad remind us how special the place is. Unlike the sometimes soulless and ubiquitous 'luxury tropical villas' all over Asia, this was built with love and care, not to a price. Villa Tukad affects people and many keep coming back. One guest from Australia has been 5 times now, and says he is addicted to the charm and the atmosphere of the place. Another unique benefit is our star cook Desak, who is able to conjure western and Asian dishes with consummate ease. The other staff are also loyal, charming and utterly trustworthy. As well as sharing our home, you are also close to one of the best new tourist areas at Canggu, which doesn't (yet) suffer from the taint of overly touristy and over-developed Kuta. Canggu is still small-scale, has organic markets, yoga and wellness centres and surfing.
