Off-Grid Luxury You Won’t Want to Leave

I’ll be honest – I didn’t expect the drive it takes to get to the villa. The bumpy narrow road through the scenic paddy fields with the grazing buffalo really does feel like a trip to the middle of nowhere. Then the car turns a corner and this subtle building appears right before you like a mirage.

The clean lines and modern decor really takes you far and away from the dusty village road just trundled through. The clever use of the sweet scented wood and classic colours really add a lovely touch of home to the eco-friendly property.

The views off the common living area open out to the sea and black sand beach and I especially loved spending my days lounging by the pool catching up on my reading and being served like royalty by the lovely and attentive staff.

One of the best spots for quiet relaxing days detoxing from technology (and from society) and refocusing your centre.

Thank you for the lovely experience Tantangan, I’ll be back someday! 🙂

Villa Tantangan is truly amazing! It is on a cliff top with access to the beach through stairs and the best thing is we can enjoy the sea breeze and sunset from the pool or the open living area directly. There are 3 en suite bedrooms and I must say the interior are well thought off with soothing colors and modern design. Villa Tantangan has a vast lawn area which I think will be perfect for events/gathering. The villa staffs are super friendly and took care of our needs all the time plus the chef cooked delicious and appetizing breakfasts! The villa is located around 15 mins or less away from the prime area of Canggu where all the cafes/bars are situated. The check in process was seamless and communication with the host was super easy. The host helped to arrange an airport transfer to pick us up and send us to the villa (although a short stretch of the road into the villa is slightly bumpy, but that’s okay as we get to see the traditional village/paddy fields around). The only downside is we didn’t get to stay there longer due to our short trip but highly recommend this to others!

Was looking for somewhere peaceful to relax around Tanah Lot, and Villa Tantangan certainly lived up to expectations, if not more. The service was fantastic, and the cliff view from the villa is amazing. Spent most of our time chilling at the bale and trouped down to the beach (just a minute’s walk away!) for some sand and sea.

A Hidden Architectural Marvel

We were told Tantangan means “challenge” – presumably named after the effort it took to create. The name is fitting.

The drive, taking us far from the city amenities and requiring a little bit of trivial travel on an unfinished road, offered absolutely extraordinary views of Bali’s rice fields.

The villa itself seemed as if it had been pulled from the covers of a modern architectural magazine; the opening pathway took us past a giant pond that we later discovered was the rooftop of a room embedded in the hillside, overlooking the jungle and with quick access to the beach.

The design of the rest of Tantangan follows suit – nothing appears to have been conceived without the utmost of thought or care. When the architecture wasn’t wowing us – the views certainly were.

Situated on a cliff overlooking miles of winding beaches, from sunrise to sunset, we couldn’t look away.

Beautiful Beachfront Villa with Great Service

The villa is designed beautifully with a modern minimalist concept and furnished very tastefully. On top of that, it is located only a few metres from the black sand beach below. What we loved most was that the 3 bedrooms are separated with each having their privacy but the same panoramic ocean views. Their garden is beautiful and was told it was designed by the famed landscape artist John Pettigrew.

It might be a bit of a drive to the villa due to the tiny village roads, we were very happy to relax and stay in as the chef and staff service was great plus we have all the amenities and facilities in the villa where we didn’t need to go out at all. On days we would like to do some shopping and sightseeing, we hired a car & driver with the help of the villa manager – he is fab as he can help arrange for anything that you require.

We will definitely be back and will recommend this beautiful hidden gem to our friends and family as well!

The villa and staff made our stay very memorable and the beautiful views, ocean breezes, and amazing pool made it extra special. Thank you so much for the colorful balloons and rainbow cake for my nephew’s 3rd birthday! Everyone, including our driver, were very professional and friendly and made our stay more than wonderful. Thank you!
