Villa Sungai Tinggi

Villa Sungai Tinggi

Bali, Canggu ~ 4 Bedrooms ~ 4 Bathrooms ~ Sleeps 6 to 8

Villas like Sungai Tinggi are few and far between. This enchanting, traditionally inspired family home is a travel destination in itself, set within a vast 2.7-hectare estate that boasts over 100 metres of absolute beach frontage looking onto one of Canggu’s renowned surf breaks.

Villa Sungai Tinggi (meaning ‘high river’) was designed by long-term Bali residents as a spacious and comfortable family home. Created in the style of a traditional Balinese compound, the villa comprises a series of living and sleeping pavilions oriented for optimum privacy as well as for the glorious ocean views. The liberal use of local materials – exotic hardwood and terrazzo floors, coral-limestone walls and vaulted alang–alang thatched roofs – is testimony to the owners’ passion for Bali, as is their stunning collection of museum-quality art and artefacts that contribute to the villa’s unique character and charm.

This appreciation for the local environment extends to the villa’s magnificent tropical gardens, which make a dream setting for a tropical wedding celebration. Soft rolling lawns dotted with fragrant frangipanis and swaying coconut palms hug the landscape’s natural contours, while a free-form 18-metre infinity swimming pool blends seamlessly with the ocean stretching to the horizon. A circular deck provides ringside seats for viewing Bali’s spectacular sunsets, and a traditional thatched balé decorated in black and white check makes an inviting respite from the sun. Work on your serve at the tennis court, arrange for a soothing massage in your room, or gather for cocktails in the impressive living pavilion. With such a choice of social and private space, Villa Sungai Tinggi is perfect for families or groups of friends.

Villa Sungai Tinggi’s friendly staff pride themselves in taking good care of their guests, love children, and have a wicked sense of humour. From cooking delicious Balinese meals to preparing your canopied bed at night and running your rose–petal bath, they will ensure your stay at Villa Sungai Tinggi is truly memorable in every detail. And should you wish to explore beyond the villa, a car and driver are at your disposal for sightseeing, shopping and adventure.


Master suite

Sungai Tinggi’s master bedroom is spectacular. Here, an exquisite collection of antiques and artefacts vie for attention with the ocean view beyond the private terrace. From behind the four-poster king-size bed, a Buddha statue casts its protective eyes over sleeping guests, while armchairs around a small round table provide a cosy spot for morning coffee. Hidden behind traditional carved doors is a dressing area. Equally impressive in size and décor is the garden bathroom, with open-air shower, twin washbasins and a circular terrazzo bathtub for two.

Three guest bedrooms

Villa Sungai Tinggi’s three guest bedrooms feature whitewashed four-poster king-size beds, draped in mosquito netting and dressed with crisp white linen and batik cushions that contrast nicely against the Bengkirai wood floor. The two downstairs rooms open onto the garden, while the upstairs bedroom opens onto a terrace with panoramic ocean views. Each comes with an iPod dock, air-conditioning and ceiling fan. All three ensuite bathrooms are individually designed – one with a sunken terrazzo tub, one with an alfresco shower, and the upstairs bathroom with a shower looking out over rice-fields.

Two optional bedrooms

If extra space is required, an additional two rooms can be converted to bedrooms to sleep another four guests (for a small additional charge).



One of the greatest advantages of staying in a villa is the personalised service provided by dedicated staff. The team at Villa Sungai Tinggi has been exceptionally well trained to offer intuitive yet discreet Balinese hospitality – many have been attached to the villa since it was an exclusive family residence. The villa manager and chefs will be only too happy to discuss any specific requirements to ensure guests have a relaxed and enjoyable stay.

Villa manager
The villa’s experienced manager is responsible for the overall operation of the villa. He leads the staffing team to meet the expectations of guests.
The skilled chef and kitchen team will happily prepare anything from the Western, Asian, vegetarian and children’s suggestion menus. They will also lead cooking classes for guests.
Four housekeepers attend to daily domestic duties and also serve meals.
A driver and car (seating up to six passengers) is included in the villa rate and is available to villa guests from 09.00am to 5.00pm daily (petrol extra).
A small team of gardeners maintain the beautiful gardens, expanse of lawn and swimming pool.
Our security guards are on duty between 4pm and 7am daily.



Villa holidays are an excellent option for families, with access to your own private facilities and the freedom to use them whenever you want. Knowing that the kids can run around happily, independently and safely, without you having to worry about other guests, is a real plus – and one that means parents are certain to have a more relaxed holiday too.

Villa Sungai Tinggi provides plenty of space for youngsters, with an 18-metre swimming pool, large rolling lawns and shared tennis court – not to mention the beach on the doorstep just waiting to be explored. The team of friendly staff will make children feel as welcome as adults, and having these willing helpers on hand gives guests plenty of flexibility and freedom to do their own exploring beyond the villa grounds (full-time baby sitting incurs a small extra cost).

Don’t worry about packing all those cumbersome extras for your stay: the villa already has the essentials, and anything we don’t have we can order in for a small fee. Just let us know in advance what you will need.

Although the equipped kitchen allows you to prepare meals for fussy eaters or babies with ease, staff will happily do this for you – just talk through your requirements and meal schedules with the villa manager or cook and they will take care of the rest. Tasty sandwiches after tennis? Pancakes by the pool for breakfast? No problem. All meals can be customised to suit children’s taste buds.
