|Tweet||Add to favorites|
Nestled between coconut trees and a landscaped garden on the southeast coast of the Island of the Gods, The Ylang-Ylang Villa is a glamorous six-bedroom retreat in which to enjoy absolute calm and serenity-a special place to feel deliciously suspended in time. This absolutely beachfront Bali rental villa is situated beside a deserted stretch of black sand, known for its great healing properties. The villa affords stunning views across the Badung Strait with the blessing of a sunrise over the mysterious limestone cliffs of Nusa Penida, one of Bali’s smaller sister islands.
An elegant fusion of traditional Balinese with contemporary grandeur gives The Ylang-Ylang the feel of a spiritual palace, where one can unite body, mind and soul. The symmetrical architectural concept emphasizes majestic dimensions to create a series of intimate, luxurious spaces.
The Ylang-Ylang is characterized by a central, two-storey living and dining pavilion additionally comprising the kitchen and the studio on the ground floor, and a gallery on the upper floor, as well as a rooftop meditation deck, accompanied by a rooftop massage and spa treatment area. The pavilion opens onto the garden and swimming pool, which is flanked on either side by a pair of symmetrical wings, incorporating a total of six bedrooms.

Villa Ylang Ylang rests in the quiet coastal village of Saba, in an area collectively known as Ketewel, within Bali’s eastern Gianyar Regency. This eastern coastal region is an exceptionally wonderful part of the island – naturally beautiful, amazingly unspoilt and packed with cultural and scenic attractions.
Saba is the quintessianal Balinese village, distinctive with its stretches of emerald rice fields and coconut groves, dotted with a harmonious mix of unobtrusive foreign residences and local dwellings.
Villa Ylang Ylang’s gardens stretch down to Saba Beach, with a reminder Bali is a volcanic island, as its sands are shimmering black. The deserted stretch of beach offers unobstructed panoramas with stunning views across the Badung Strait and Nusa Penida, opposite, one of Bali’s smaller sister islands. And on a clear day, the silhouette of towering volcano, Mount Agung, is visible in the distance. Sunrises are a spectacular treat here, especially over Nusa Penida’s limestone cliffs. [It’s worth noting that as Bali is also still a developing country, the beach is sometimes at the mercy of external influences and people’s disregard for the environment.]
A tidal river flows between the beach and villa; Peanut River alters its course with every changing season, so access to the beach requires crossing the river half of the year by way of a small boat provided by the villa. With strong currents directly in front, it’s safer to swim in a protected bay area just five minutes westwards (or head south to the calm waters of nearby Sanur). The offshore reef here is renowned for its surf breaks, and there’s excellent surfing to be had ten minutes in either direction of the villa: nearby Mascheti Beach has world-class surf breaks and hosts international surfing tournaments.
Saba is famous for its traditional Gamalan music, producing some of the finest Legong dancers on the island; private performances at the villa by young traditional dancing girls can be arranged. Balinese Hindu purification ceremonies are held beside the sea at nearby sacred Pura Segara sea temple; the main temple stands at the entrance to the road leading to Villa Ylang Ylang, where prayer blessings are performed daily.
