Cemagi is a traditional Balinese village situated on the West coast some 12 km's north of Seminyak.
It is distinguished by a remarkable temple perched upon a rocky outcrop in the Indian ocean. The drive to the villa is through traditional Balinese villages where you can meet the locals and watch them going about their daily routines.
Villa Surgawi with its rice paddy and ocean views is only 75 meters from the unique beach and temple setting at Cemagi. The views here are amazing and when the tide is on the retreat it is possible to walk along the beach up to the Meridien Hotel, which is home to the famous 18 hole Nirwana championship Golf Course.
A 20 minutes drive south will take you to the Canggu Club and a few minutes further on the restaurants & nightlife of downtown Seminyak. Villa Surgawi offers the best of both worlds; quiet seclusion from the stresses of the modern world in a unique location with a variety of home comforts, yet close enough to modern amenities should you feel the urge venture out.
Most guests to date choose simply to embrace the serenity and security of this exclusive villa and stay firmly nestled in one of the cozy chairs or day beds with a good book or magazine and be lulled by the sound of the ocean and whispers from the endless rice fields. An occasional glance up reveals a volcano popping it's head out of the clouds or an ocean glimpse reminds you that you are on Bali, in a very special place - Welcome to Villa Surgawi – The Heavenly Place.
Built on three levels, the colonial-Carribean style 5 bedroom home offers ocean views from all levels. It is less than two minutes walk down the private lane to the beach and temple. Large verandahs allow for a good flow of air around the villa, fed by an endless sea breeze. The villa offers plenty of comfortable outdoor living, yet all rooms are air-conditioned enabling guests to retreat in comfort during the humid rainy season, usually between January & April.
The entrance to Villa Surgawi is via the parking area, through a huge pivot doorway and onto a timber bridge where a water feature greets you. Once over the ornamental pond you find yourself in a large tropical garden, home to many varieties of palms, heloconias and colourful plants like the ginger plants and mango tree.
The ground floor consists of two spacious double bedrooms and one twin bedroom. One of these has its own en suite bathroom and the second shares the bathroom with the adjoining twin room. A guest powder room and a living room are located further around the verandah.
The large dining area opens out onto the verandah, ideal for both indoor and outdoor entertaining. This is complimented by a Bose home stereo system which is piped to all open areas of the villa and controlled remotely making it possible to listen to music poolside but not on the terraces or lounge or many similar combination. You can also listen to different music in different parts of the house so no more arguments over who listens to what.
The high spec show kitchen is designed with a combination of white duco painted and glazed cabinets, tempered glass spashbacks, granite work benches and appliances including oven, stove, extractor hood, microwave, dishwasher and fridge freezer. A separate pantry/storage area adjoins the kitchen. A staff door leads directly to the back of the property allowing staff to enter the kitchen with the minimum of intrusion. This is where our cooks will prepare mouthwatering meals for you and your friends.
All rooms are connected by the wide airy terrace verandah dotted with potted palms. You will also discover several planter chairs with drinks tables for you to relax on, a great place for early morning tea or coffee.
Large Garden & Pool
Villa Surgawi has a huge garden, a great place for the kids to run around within sight of slumbering adults. The 18 meter pool is one depth throughout, there is no shallow end for children, however as long as adult supervision and proper flotation devices are used for young swimmers the whole family will enjoy being here. For those who can already swim then the pool is the place where most guests tend to gravitate to and spend their days relaxing either in the Bale or surrounds.
The villa was completed in July 2008 so many of the palms & plants have not yet fully matured, however they do provide a surprising amount of shade enabling you to sit out in certain parts of the garden during the hottest part of the day with some degree of protection.
There is also the option of sitting on the sun deck on one of the four sun beds or if you prefer a more sheltered hideaway then sanctuary can be found on the large day bed under the Bale (a large outdoor resting pavilion with no walls). The Bale is equipped with its own set of Bose speakers and a dedicated remote control so you can also listen to totally different music than the rest of the house. There is a dining table and chairs in the Bale, and it is the perfect place to enjoy any meal or just gather with your friends for a few drinks and a game.
Beside the Bale is an open shower where you can freshen up before meals or after a relaxing stroll along the beach.
The first floor is home to a spacious air-conditioned media room with distractingly stunning views to the rear over rice fields and volcanoes in the distance - and with sunset views over ocean at the front.
The fourth & fifth master suites are located on this floor and both have large walk in wardrobes. The massive master bedroom suite encompasses a 44m2 bedroom, a large air-conditioned bathroom with separate toilet, double basins, bathtub and spacious shower. Both upstairs master bedrooms have bathtubs are set under the windows so you can lift the roman blinds and enjoy both rice paddy and ocean views. The large verandahs have unpolished terrazzo flooring with an andesit stone border and white painted timber balustrades. Both ground and first levels have slatted sun shades to keep the rooms cool but they also serve to finish off the colonial style of the property. The main area of the upstairs verandah is 6 meters deep. This is THE spot for lounging. Three large deep back antique benches bordering a large coffee table on three sides provide plenlty of seating and have endless ocean views. The orientation of Villa Surgawi is north/south – thus minimising the heat from the sun whilst maximising the views.
In addition to the above, there is also a 60m2 roof terrace on the second floor. This is accessed via a stainless steel spiral staircase. From this upper most level you will enjoy the most incredible 180 degree views – from Uluwatu in the south of Bali, all the way up the West coast past the Meridien Hotel. This is THE perfect spot for enjoying Sunset Cocktails! Note: Not recommended for the under 6's. Young children need to be supervised here at ALL times. Netting can be provided to block access to the stairs and swimming pool upon request Next to the main house is a large double garage that has been converted into a billiards/pool room, complete with bar. The pool table is a full size with Iwan Simmons felt. It has been handcrafted from recycled teak wood taken from a 300 year old Javanese house. The gracious design give the room its style and make it a great place to hang out.
At the rear of the pool room are the staff quarters (two large rooms and a bathroom), staff kitchen, laundry, store room and genset room. The staff have their own entrance and separate parking area for their motorbikes at the rear so all public spaces are kept clear and guests undisturbed. The property is built to very high international standards, with some state of the art facilities including Bose server technology with built-in speakers connected to all common areas, broadband internet, Satellite TV and all bedrooms are connected via a PABX telephone system.
In addition the villa has a shared tennis court for early morning or late afternoon workouts.
