We have stayed many times at Taman Bebek. we came as a group this time and occupied the complete Bali Aga complex and we stayed in the Crossant Villa a little but around the ridge overlooking the river and the gorgeous terraces.
The staff are as always incredibly friendly and attentive.They are just the most lively people.
All our family and friends loved the Bali aga suites and were dazzled by the beauty of the lush and fecund gardens.
they were in love with the 20 metre pool at the Bali Aga area but when they saw the Crossant pool they were green with envy. This gorgeous infinity pool overlooking the dramatic river valley and verdant rice terraces is just simply outstanding. To swim in here in the early morning or at sunset is one of the most wonderful experiences ever. The idiosyncratic and ethnically stylish villas are all designed by the world famous architect and gardening guru Pak Made Wijaya. He has turned what was once a coconut grove into a garden paradise sympathetically dotted with hidden architectural treasures. The Villas are built around generally colonial themes with ethnic touches and with great reverence to Balinese spiritual etiquette. the gardens that surround them are full of hidden gems and authentic antique statuettes , ponds and walls.
The villas are not built as sterile modern glass and metal structures but rather as colonial villas with soft patterned soap stone , super wide jungle hardwood plank floors and louvred doors. The villa is sealed from mosquitoes and does have unobtrusive air con if wanted but we loved the fan alone in the balmy tropical nights full of the sounds of frogs and cicadas.
the bathroom is typical of Mssr Wijayas style of open air but private bathrooms.
the bedroom was like going back in time with a high set metal four poster bed with mother of pearl rounded insert...wow!
The villa has a self contained kitchen annex and a sitting room.The verandah has views to absolutely die for. with a winding path leading to the hidden Croissant pool and the terraces and mountains in the distance.
we had a special function and a number of other gatherings while we were there as my wife I had a landmark birthday. We had drinks and canapés by the large pool under the thatched pool gazebo with live trees poking through the thatch. We later moved to the reception area which is in a replica Javanese farm house...wow!
the evening was magical, the Balinese food fabulous ( by Koman at Sayan Warung), the drinks poured and served by Taman Bebek staff and music by Saint ravine from Perth.
we later had a small function by the Croissant pool and again catered by Koman. To watch the sun go down around such a beautiful pool setting with evening lights twinkling from the slopes of the river terraces was an experience of a lifetime.
Taman Bebek villas as I said are not sterile modern but is a bit like staying in a French chateau with its querky fascinating idiosyncrasies.
we and all our guests lived it to death!
