ABOUT VILLA ASANTE
If you are looking for a large, comfortable and spacious villa just a few hundred metres from the ocean, then Villa Asante is the place for you. Our four-bedroom home is amply equipped with staff, facilities and comforts to ensure a most restful stay, including butlers, a private chef, 13 x 10.5-metre swimming pool and separate kids pool, lavish ensuite bathrooms, king-sized beds and plenty of places to relax. Bask in the sunshine and work on your tan, or take the shady option and stretch out in our poolside bale, large enough for six or more and scenically positioned alongside the large lawn.
Drifting between the villa’s comfortable living areas is easy with the two open-air pavilions positioned immediately adjacent to the pool and cooled by ceiling fans and natural breezes. One is for dining, and other for reclining, watching TV or selecting some reading material from the large assortment of magazines and books. For serious TV or movie sessions, lock yourselves away in our upstairs media lounge in front of the big-screen television with the added joy of large soft sofas and the cool comforts of air conditioning.
For the kids, there’s an assortment of games, pool toys, table tennis, badminton and volleyball sets as well as an Xbox in the TV lounge. We even created a 10 x 2 x 0.3-metre paddling pool so they can happily splash about all day. Weddings and special events are also one of our specialties and we can cater up to large groups of up to 125.
We look forward to welcoming you at beautiful Villa Asante, confident that you will enjoy as good a time as we always do in our paradise home away from home.
Villa Asante is a study in symmetry, comprising three buildings, a 13 x 10.5-metre swimming pool and a large bale relaxation pavilion. The main two-storey building incorporates a furnished entrance foyer, the four ensuite bedrooms and an air-conditioned media room, bordered by terraces and a wide balcony. Two shingle-roofed, open-sided pavilions either side of the pool house the living room, the dining area and a bright fitted kitchen. Beyond the pool and the comfortable bale relaxation pavilion are the generous walled gardens and large lawn – a perfect playground for kids and a sublime setting for special celebrations.
Master bedrooms - Positioned downstairs, with terraces at their fronts, the two master bedrooms are furnished with king-size beds, and equipped with air-conditioning, ceiling fans, and satellite-channel TV/DVD players. The generously sized master bathrooms feature courtyard gardens planted with travellers’ palms and shrubs. When the glass doors are opened the bathrooms become one with nature. Each is fitted with a bathtub and two showers, one indoors, and one offering an alfresco showering experience.
Guest bedrooms - One of the upstairs, air-conditioned guest bedrooms is furnished with a king-size bed and the other with twins (convertible to a king).

Dining pavilion - Stepping stones across the pool link the living pavilion with the dining pavilion and kitchen. The spacious dining area is cooled by ceiling fans and furnished with a teakwood dining table for 12. Adjacent is a white, open-plan designer kitchen linked to the dining area by a wide service bar complete with bar chairs where guests can sip an aperitif while they watch the chef at work.
TV room - Villa Asante’s TV room serves many functions: it can be a cosy and quiet escape, a place for the kids to play games, or for the family to watch a movie in air-conditioned comfort, or as an extra bedroom for kids. Positioned centrally upstairs, the room is furnished with deeply upholstered sofas (which can double as extra beds), and equipped with a 42-inch TV with satellite channels and a DVD player.
Swimming pool and garden - The 13 x 10.5-metre swimming pool includes a shallow area that forms a T-shape separating the living and dining pavilions.

DINING AT VILLA ASANTE
Villa Asante’s private chef is at your service to prepare daily breakfast, lunch and dinner from a suggestion menu of Western and Asian dishes including vegetarian and children’s options, as well some special Balinese delicacies. The chef can also tailor meals to suit guests’ needs and is happy to accommodate your preferences and cater to special dietary requirements.
Dinner parties, functions, and special orders can all be catered for, and meals can be anything from a simple snack to a poolside barbeque, or a grand banquet – the famous Balinese babi guling (spit-roast pig) or roast duck is recommended, but should be ordered in advance. Food and drinks are purchased in well-stocked supermarkets and gourmet delicatessens, or in the local markets.
Groceries and beverages are charged at cost price plus a 20% handling fee which is subject to service charge and government tax. Guests will be requested to provide grocery money in advance, and the staff will do the shopping and keep the receipts for reference. To make the most of the kitchen and give staff time to shop, it is a good idea to plan meals with the staff the evening before.
FAMILIES AT VILLA ASANTE
The family friendly advantages of a villa holiday are many, including access to your own private facilities and the freedom to use them whenever you want. Villa Asante has been designed very much with families in mind. Convertible sofas in the TV lounge can accommodate extra children, while the twin bedded room also contains two handy trundle beds. There are games and puzzles, table tennis, DVDs, books, pool toys and an Xbox to keep kids entertained for hours. There’s also a good-sized lawn for them to run around on and a special shallow area in the pool.
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.
The team of friendly staff at Villa Asante 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 babysitting incurs a small extra cost).
Although the equipped kitchen allows you to prepare meals for fussy eaters or babies with ease, staff will happily to do this for you – just talk through your requirements and meal schedules with the villa manager or chef and they will take care of the rest. Pancakes by the pool for breakfast? Toasted sandwiches in the TV room? No problem. The chef can customise all meals to suit children’s taste buds.
Don’t worry about packing all that cumbersome kids’ equipment for your stay. Just let us know what you need, and anything we don’t have in-house (villa facilities include a baby cot, highchair, car seat and games) we can hire on your behalf (click here to see list of available hire items).
And when the excitement of exploring the villa starts to wear off, check out our Things to do page – there’s plenty in the area to keep all the family amused throughout the holiday.
SPA AT VILLA ASANTE
Feel like a body scrub or massage? Just ask our staff to bring the spa to you! We can recommend deluxe treatments carried out in the privacy of the villa by fully trained therapists from a reputable local spa (extra charges will apply). Here’s a sample of what’s on the menu:
Massage - Release built up tension with a traditional Balinese massage by the pool or in the relaxation balé. Using a combination of gentle stretches, acupressure and aromatherapy oils to stimulate the flow of blood, oxygen and energy around your body, you will feel totally relaxed in no time.
Foot reflexology - Foot reflexology is a natural healing art based on the principle that there are reflexes in the feet which correspond to every part of the body. Through application of pressure on these reflexes tension is relieved and circulation improved leaving you feeling balanced.
Body scrub - A full body scrub will exfoliate and hydrate your skin leaving it soft and smooth. A rejuvenating scrub combines an abrasive material such as salt, coffee, rice bran or pecan hulls with essential oils to remove any impurities and make your skin glow.
Manicure/pedicure - Our hands and feet work hard for us every day but rarely get the attention they deserve. Treat them to a manicure or pedicure, which usually comes with the added bonus of a quick hand or foot massage.
As well as having access to their own exclusive leisure facilities at the villa, guests also benefit from complimentary guest membership at Bali¹s premier private members club, The Canggu Club, for the duration of their stay.
This family-orientated club luxuriates across 4,000 square metres of land in amongst the picturesque rice fields of Canggu.

The Cubby House Kids Club* for 2-12 year olds offers a huge range of quality toys and activities to keep children entertained for hours, whilst the slides at the all-new Splash Water Park, set amidst the club¹s lush tropical gardens, take fun to a whole new level. Kids will also love the Bounce Trampoline Centre*, and can work on their fitness at the Junior Sports Academy* (3-17 year olds), which offers football, swimming, gymnastics, dance and tennis lessons. For family fun, make a booking at Strike Ten Pin Bowling*.
