Description | Location | Gallery | Room Rates

Villa Gajah Putih is a Bali classic located in Canggu, just a twenty-minute drive from the greater Kuta/Seminyak area where the prime dining, shopping, and nightlife in Bali are located. Because of its slightly out of town setting, it has the double attraction of being relatively close to everything one might need, while being far enough away to retain a peaceful rural feel. This 6-bedroom estate is set on over 1.85 hectares (4.5 acres) of beachfront land, with a tennis court, home cinema and 20 staff. One of Bali’s most prestigious properties, Gajah Putih brings the comforts of home to a luxury estate.

The surrounding village is traditional Balinese, and retains large expanses of pictorial rice fields. This five-bedroom villa and its immense property has the spectacular attribute of being set directly on the beach, and the ocean view enhances the enticing attributes of this prime estate

Villa Gajah Putih Rooms

The villa is set on a gorgeous sprawling property, the gardens of which have been maturing for over a decade. To the left of the building is an immense vegetable garden, large yard, and tennis court. Between the main structure and the beach is a swimming pool and indoor sauna set within a manicured lawn strewn with coconut palms and two relaxation bales.

Each of the six bedrooms consists of an enclosed air-conditioned room with its own ensuite bathroom. The floors and ceilings are made of ironwood, and each of the bedrooms have at least one glass wall overlooking the ocean-side gardens of the estate. All of the ensuite bathrooms are floored and walled with caramel marble, and have screened-windows overlooking the front gardens.

First Bedroom
Set off to the right of the living room when walking straight from the dining area is the first bedroom. The entrance to this bedroom is a traditional Balinese variegated carved doorway, which opens up to reveal two queen sized wooden canopy beds with blue cotton bedcovers from India. Delicate white mosquito nets subtly accented by white flower patterns are draped from the canopies, and reading lights are tactfully attached to the supports for convenience. The beds are separated by a blue Ikat wall hanging and a wooden bedside table upon which rests a porcelain lamp from Hong Kong. The room is flanked on one side by glass, which looks out over the living room and pool table when the white draperies are opened. A rich red Oriental carpet delightfully compliments the ironwood floors.

The rest of the furniture consists of a modest wood standing wardrobe and a small writing table with matching chairs. Within the spacious marble bathroom, a large mask of a meditative face with closed eyes hangs on the wall behind the double showers, mounted on square marble pillars. A wooden towel rack and copper elephant stand sit by the stairs leading into the sunken marble tub which can be filled for a luxurious bath.

Second Bedroom
On both sides of the doorway to the second bedroom are two majestic red lion-like sculptures. Two wooden queen sized beds with red bedcovers sit on either side of a small table and lamp, behind which is a wall of windows overlooking the garden. The front windows look out to a lily pond filled with fish and two fountains in the form of carved stone tortoises, spouting water from their mouths. Bamboo blinds can be drawn down in the bedroom for privacy. The decor in this room consists of a plain wooden wardrobe, a desk, and matching chairs, and is highlighted by a red and blue Oriental carpet, and two original antique Chinese paintings to either side of the ironwood door leading to the large robe and ensuite bathroom.

Third Bedroom (1st Master Bedroom)
To the immediate left of the staircase, one walks past another large painting and through a set of picturesque carved doors into the first master bedroom. This sublime room is walled on three sides by sliding glass windows with white linen drapes that can be drawn for privacy. An “Ikat” weaving hangs on the fourth wall between the entrance and the bathroom doorway. The entire bedroom is surrounded by a balcony, which overlooks the front and back gardens, and the vegetable garden to the side. The tremendous bed sits in the middle of the room with a view of the ocean, and boasts a finely dyed cotton red and white bedcover made in India in karma sutra style. Imported Oriental carpets encircle the bed, and an elaborate Chinese style sofa from Java sits off to the side. The en suite bathroom is another symphony of marble and indulgence.

Fourth Bedroom
The fourth bedroom overlooks the balcony to one side and offers a sea view to the other. The most notable decoration in this room is the complex mirrored wall hanging from India. As in the other bedrooms, a table and matching sitting chairs and a standing wardrobe make up the rest.

Fifth Bedroom (2nd Master Bedroom)
The second master bedroom is boasts sliding glass doors overlooking the ocean open up to expose the elegantly carved canopy bed. The white bedcover is of handmade Indian lace, matched by the elegant mosquito net, hand painted in India. A unique Javanese batik wall hanging backs the bed, and depicts a forest setting with animals grazing.

Sixth Bedroom
The sixth bedroom was added in early 2006 and designed in keeping with the original house. The large suite has an impressive carved wooden wall and luxurious en suite bathroom. Glass doors open to a large balcony area overlooking the gardens.

The fully equipped kitchen is set off to the side of the dining room and can be reached by way of a small bridge. The main dining room table seats fourteen people for formal dining, all served elegantly by the staff.

Owing to the owner’s love of fine food, the cooks at the villa are both talented and versatile, offering guests a large choice of delectable meals to enjoy during their stay. Many of the fresh ingredients used for cooking are gathered daily from the villa’s organic vegetable and herb garden.

Living Room
The spacious common living areas of the villa are floored in marble, and the actual structure is composed of white stucco ceilings framed by huge ironwood beams supported by matching columns, making the areas completely open-air.

First Living Room
The first floor living room features wooden tables, rattan armchairs and couches situated so as to create two sitting areas. Artwork collected from around the Indonesian archipelago abounds, enhancing the exotic atmosphere and creating a rich ambience ideal for thoughtful repose. The air is permeated with the sounds of crashing waves and the melodious chirping of tropical birds, which inhabit the flourishing tropical gardens. An imported pool table sits off to the side of the living room near the ironwood staircase that leads to the second storey.

The stairs are divided by a small landing, over which an arched wood doorframe tactfully splits the sunlight. Balinese paintings depicting village life adorn the walls, and a swinging ironwood gate opens up to second floor.

Upstair Living Room
The entire second storey is floored in ironwood, and a timber-lined cathedral style alang-alang ceiling opens up the space. The upstairs living area consists of one main sitting area overlooking a tremendous balcony upon which are set two batik-covered massage tables. Flower boxes filled with fragrant blooming plants surround the balcony. A tall table is situated behind the sitting area, upon which a projector can be put, while a large screen can be pulled down from the ironwood columns framing the scene for movie-viewing. An attractive Chinese-style canopy day bed with mirrored Indian bedcovers sits to one side, offering an enticing spot from which to enjoy the fabulous property and the view it offers its guests.

Pool & Garden Area
Upon entering the grounds one is led down a wooden walkway past a large limestone alligator carving and elaborate water ponds. These water gardens are filled with colorful fish and flowers, and completely surround the main building. One can walk out to the actual ground of the property by way of the first floor living area, past two Chinese sofa beds and three crouching Buddha statues. The marble floor is traded for a wood-planked walkway, leading out through the flourishing gardens to the enormous swimming pool. The pool is surrounded by a wood deck, which supports numerous lounge chairs and two hammocks. The beachfront yard is studded with tall coconut palms looking down upon the closely manicured lawns.

Tennis Court & Sauna
To the side of the swimming pool is an alluring indoor sauna, completely made of tropical hardwood and roofed with “alang-alang”. One way glass ensures privacy while inside, yet allowing one to look out to the left towards the vegetable garden and tennis courts, or to the two beachside relaxation bales, ideal for meditation or yoga. The gate leading to the beach is next to the bales. The tennis court is set on a slightly elevated plane near the beach, and the thick foliage lining the fence tactfully maintaining privacy by sufficiently obstructing the view of the villa without blocking the ocean view from the property.

Menu & Dining
Villa Gajah Putih is blessed with two in-house chefs. After over a decade of operations, and guests from the four corners of the world, they are able to prepare a variety of mouth watering dishes to tempt all. The specialties of the villa, Indonesian and Italian cuisine, reflect both its location and personal nature. A vegetable garden located on the estate enhances the menu with home-grown organic vegetables and herbs.

In addition to this, ingredients for all meals are purchased from high quality supermarkets and delicatessens. 30% will be added to all grocery receipts purchased by villa staff. Where possible, the staff will shop for fresh ingredients to make unforgettable meals, such as buying fresh seafood from the pre-dawn market in the village of Jimbaran. The villa also offers a special all-in fixed price option for breakfast, lunch or dinner for USD33 per person (children under the age of ten eat for free), although this excludes certain items such as steak and lobster.

Special gastronomic touches and abilities abound. Bread is baked fresh by the staff everyday. A selection of homemade desserts is one of the bonuses of residing at Gajah Putih. In addition, the villa makes its own ice cream - Italian techniques with fresh tropical fruits presented in a beachside setting - what more could anyone desire?
