Villa Cempaka is part of Puri Tirta Villas, a private villa complex located on the waterfront on the Tanjung-Benoa peninsula in south Bali, only a stone's throw from the world renowned resorts and white sand beaches of Nusa Dua. A small pathway leads you from the parking lot through tropical greenery right to the pier housing a private boat, which can take you to explore the nearby beaches, the authentic fisherman's town on Serangan 'Turtle' Island, or even on fishing and snorkelling expeditions.
There are kayaks available to take out onto the harbour and explore the nearby mangroves. When the tide is high, guests can rent a jet-ski from the nearby water sports centre or go parasailing or on a fun banana boat trip right off the Puri Tirta pier.
Down a plant strewn, white stone walkway, one comes to a multi-coloured door reminiscent of brightly decorated fishing boats that so characterise the seafaring history of the local community. Entering over the threshold into Villa Cempaka's tropical garden one immediately sees the possibilities of the good times ahead, for the villa is super-comfortable, contemporary in design and outfitted with all the necessities for a splendid Bali holiday in the sun.
An 8 x 5m pool dominates the garden and is accessed by stone steps where children can paddle withy ease. A bale bengong relaxation pavilion sits in the corner of the garden and hovers above the water and provides the perfect platform for some acrobatic diving action. The villa is comprised of two pavilions, one two-storey and the other a single level dwelling housing bedroom two. On the ground floor and accessed through full-length, bi-folding French doors is the spacious living/ dining/ kitchen area where all of the good living takes place.
A kitchen sits to one end, there's a dining table for eight in the middle and a large and comfortable L-shaped rattan sofa facing a home cinema system with a large flatscreen TV takes up the other end of the room. More folding doors open up at the back of the room to allow for great cross-ventilation, with the added advantage of having water features and koi ponds to add to the ambience. Bedroom one is located on the ground floor of this building and is accessed via the garden.
A stairway leads up from the dining room to the master suite, complete with its own balcony, and there is also a covered rooftop balcony with a soft Balinese daybed, which looks out over the harbour and the perfect place to chill out. All bedrooms are en-suite and have full amenities, air-conditioning and ceiling fans.
