ABOUT CHALINA ESTATE
Chalina Estate is a magnificent property overlooking the picturesque rice fields of Canggu and situated just minutes from the famed surf breaks at Echo Beach on Bali’s south-west coast. Resting upon 5,300 square metres of beautifully landscaped gardens and lawns bordering the Pangi river, with a divine 30-metre swimming pool as its centrepiece, the villa invites guests to enter a world of total peace and privacy.
This luxurious home delightfully pairs the old with the new – classic Balinese architecture with alang-alang thatched roofs, sandstone walls, polished stone and dark wood floors provide the perfect backdrop to showcase the owner’s striking modern artwork. Funky sculptures mingle with handpicked Indonesian artefacts to create an interesting dimension of shapes and textures that represent the blending of different cultures.
Featuring six bedrooms plus a converted study (which can serve as an additional bedroom) and a bunk room for up to ten extra guests, generous living and dining areas and a separate lounge bar with two adjoining terraces, there’s plenty of space to relax and unwind. The pool’s floating gazebo provides a soothing location for a massage or to practice meditation and embrace the villa’s uplifting energy.
With butler service and a private chef on hand to prepare delicious Asian and Western dishes you need not lift a finger; just lie back and indulge in the luxurious surroundings and magical sunsets.
Chalina Estate’s perfectly manicured lawns, exotic tropical flora and stunning outlook make the villa an idyllic setting for weddings, parties and special events. From a traditional wedding ceremony to a unique and memorable birthday celebration, all dreams can be capably realised.
Suitable for all interests and ages – from extended families to groups of friends – Chalina Estate is also the ultimate destination to rejuvenate mind, body and soul. Embark on a spiritual retreat in this peaceful haven surrounded by natural beauty and the stresses and strains of modern life will soon evaporate into the tropical air.
The entrance to Chalina Estate immediately sets the mood with beautiful fish ponds featuring purple water lilies, a cascading waterfall and large stone vase fountains creating a peaceful tropical ambiance.
The villa’s 30-metre swimming pool is the focal point of the design with all rooms strategically positioned around it to optimise the views of the stunning landscaped grounds. Two generous master suites face the pool from the upper storey of the main bedroom pavilion just above a guest room and converted study/children’s bedroom, while three further guest suites occupy their own pavilions, privately spaced apart among the gardens and overlooking the rice fields.
The villa’s tastefully decorated, tropical Bali-Style living spaces step down in a series of thatch-roofed pavilions towards the rice fields and the river.
Chalina Estate’s main two-storey residence houses three bedrooms and the study, which can be converted to an extra bedroom, while three further bedrooms are situated in individual pavilions leading down towards the river. Each of Chalina Estate’s ensuite bedroom is air-conditioned and features black-out curtains, a flat-screen TV and DVD player and a small fridge.
Saffron room - This huge suite has incredible views over the garden and rice fields. A king-size four-poster bed with golden mosquito net and bright fuchsia and green cushions sits proudly in the middle of this high-ceilinged room between side tables supporting feathered lamp shades, while behind the bed, two white sofas contrast nicely against the dark-wood floors and artwork. Glass sliding doors open onto a covered timber deck complete with a comfy sofa and ottomans.
The ensuite bathroom offers a large stainless steel bath, wooden vanity with twin basins and a walk-in terrazzo rain shower. Guests in this room enjoy exclusive access to satellite TV.

Off the bedroom lies a separate dressing area and an ensuite bathroom with Palimanan stone floor, rain shower, stainless steel bathtub, and twin basins.
Cinnamon room - Also located on the ground floor of the main building, the converted study – which is ideal for children – features twin whitewashed teak beds draped with mosquito nets and polished grey terrazzo floors.

Funky Japanese doll lampshades light up the room while a white egg-shaped chair sits in one corner. The bathroom is identical to that of the Ginger room.
Guest pavilions (Paprika, Clove and Vertyver) - Three guest bedrooms face the pool in stand-alone pavilions set on lawns sloping down towards the river, each with a patio from which to enjoy the view.

Chalina Estate offers in-house spa services on request for those guests seeking extra pampering. Relax in the beautiful outdoor areas or the privacy of your own room while receiving Balinese massages, manicures, pedicures, body scrubs, hair-creme baths or facials from a reputable local spa (extra charges will apply).
Here’s a sample of what’s on the menu:
Massage - Release built-up tension with a traditional Balinese massage beside the pool or in the privacy of your bedroom. Using a combination of gentle stretches, acupressure and aromatherapy oils to stimulate the flow of blood, oxygen and energy around your body you will feel totally relaxed in no time.
Foot reflexology - Foot reflexology is a natural healing art based on the principle that there are reflexes in the feet which correspond to every part of the body. Through application of pressure on these reflexes tension is relieved and circulation improved leaving you feeling balanced.
Body scrub - A full body scrub will exfoliate and hydrate your skin leaving it soft and smooth. A rejuvenating scrub combines an abrasive material such as salt, coffee, rice bran or pecan hulls with essential oils to remove any impurities and make your skin glow.
Manicure/pedicure - Our hands and feet work hard for us every day but rarely get the attention they deserve. Treat them to a manicure or pedicure, which usually comes with the added bonus of a quick hand or foot massage.
