The splendid five-bedroom property known as Villa Niloufar, meaning “LOTUS” in Persian, rests in blissful seclusion in a rural setting in southwest Bali. It is an ideal destination for guests who want to escape and enjoy relaxation, fitness, and wellbeing within a stunning location. The fast-flowing river is particularly beautiful; the river bank is accessed by a winding path and steps, and its jungle environs are restful and cool. The ‘bale bengong’ relaxation pavilion – an enchanting, lazy, breezy gazebo, sheltered by an alang alang roof and supported by pillars – is positioned in a strategic place, so that guests can relax and enjoy the tranquillity The Balinese word ‘bengong’ means ‘lost in thought’, and ‘bale’ means an abode, so a bale bengong is literally a ‘contemplation house’, designed for reflection, dreaming and meditation. Shady mature trees include majestic breadfruit, figs and towering palms, together with creepers and ferns. On the far side of the river is a picturesque rice terrace. The extensive grounds are landscaped with flat lawns punctuated with palms. From the swimming pool level, the garden cascades down to the valley; and is planted with many varieties of flowering shrubs. In addition to the main ornamental pond and the two rooftop lotus ponds, another pebble-lined pond rests beside the living area. Guests will be lulled by the soothing flow of the river and enjoy the sights and sounds of nature, butterflies and birds.
Niloufar is approximately 30 minutes drive from the trendy and buzzing area of Seminyak/Oberoi, where Bali's most popular beaches, chic boutiques, excellent restaurants and fashionable bars are located. The nearest beach, Canggu, is just 5 minutes drive away. The international airport is fifty minutes’ drive.
