Our villa is called Astika Toyaning or beautiful water - well nearly. Astika means beauty, simple and minimalist and Toyaning - clean fresh water used in rice fields.
Astika Toyaning is part of the Sungai Pangi Estate - a small villa complex of 8 luxury villas in Canggu set on a plot of over 120 are (12,000 sqmtrs) overlooking the Sungai Pangi river.
Astika Toyaning was completed in mid 2008 and its the total space (excluding car parking, common areas, etc,.) is nearly 1,600 sq mtr with 4 bedrooms (three double beds one twin bed); a 20 meter lap pool; 10 meter square pool; separate kitchen pavilion that seats 12 for dinner; a lounge and multimedia room.
There are loungers for 8 people around the pools as well as a Bale that sits at the end of the lap pool. The large outside living area overlooks both pools. We have three full time staff (two housekeepers and a full time cook) plus gardener, pool and security.
We finished construction nearly a year ago but have yet to formally put it on the rental market. We have stayed in it quite a lot as well as family and friends to date. It is 'modern Bali' in style built to western standards. We used a Australian architect and construction company.
Located in Canggu it is approx 20 minutes drive to "eat street" and the Legian/Oberoi Hotels, 15 minutes walk to the local beach and 20 minutes drive to Tanah Lot, Le Meridien Hotel and the famous Tanah Lot golf course.
