The Villa is located on 7700 sqm of elevated headland overlooking the Indian Ocean. Accessed from the village of Beraban by a 3km pathway through paddy fields. Beraban is about a 30min drive from the commercial center of Seminyak. Total journey from the airport is approximately one hour.
The land is elevated 15m above sea level. The villa faces south giving you a panoramic view of the sea and Nyanyi Beach. To the east, the land is bordered by Tantangan River with bountiful bird and wildlife. To the north, views of the paddies and on the horizon, the majestic volcanoes of central Bali. Truly spectacular early in the morning with the sun rise.
Nyanyi Beach is reached directly from the house through a small, typical Balinese gate at the bottom of the garden.
Villa Tantangan is also unique because it is, to our knowledge, the first villa in Bali of this size to be completely off the grid. We are producing our own electricity primarily through solar panels. The house has been designed by the architect to minimize its energy consumption. For example, the living area (72sqm) is completely open to help natural ventilation and the flat roofs have been planted with shrubs for heat insulation. This is, in addition to its useful insulation purpose, also very beautiful and helps to integrate the house with its surroundings. We haven't however made any compromise on the comfort and the quality of the lighting of the house and garden. The latter has been designed by a professional using LED all around. We also have a generator located in a soundproofed room at the back of the house, which acts as a back up source of energy if necessary.
The large garden is designed by landscape artist John Pettigrew, a resident of Bali for almost 20 years. He is responsible for many of the well known private residential and hotel gardens on the island. It has been planted with numerous mature trees, shrubs, and flowers. We also have a unique dry garden on the west side with rare cactus and interesting stone landscaping. We have three full time gardeners to make sure it stays beautiful all year round.
We also have a closed living room or media room (37sqm) in case you want to watch TV in the comfort of an air conditioned room.
