Villa The CoveKuta & Legian
- Breathtaking spacious beach front villa
- Tranquil villa located in Balian Beach
The Cove villa offers the experience of a quintessential peaceful beach holiday with the extras of fine dining, tennis onsite, world-class surfing, and memorable excursions off Bali's beaten tourist path. Two-and-a-half hours drive from the airport along the West coast of Bali lies this hidden gem situated in a coconut grove, gently sloping towards a private beach. Only at low tide is the beach accessible to others by passage through a natural grotto. The Cove is absolutely private, neighbored only by agricultural land and coconut trees, yet it is a 5 minutes drive away from Balian village with its bars and restaurants catering to the expatriate surfer community. This unique beachfront property comprises a main house with a living room, kitchen and dining area, and 4 bedrooms each with a sea facing terrace or deck. Towards the beach there is a separate guesthouse with a bedroom and sunset cabana offering spectacular views, a 14m stone infinity pool overlooking the waves and a sundowner bar. Amidst the landscaped gardens is a grass tennis court. The facilities are ideal for up to 10 adults plus 3 children as 2 of the 5 bedrooms have extra beds. The Cove is fully catered and it is managed by an experienced staff which includes the manager and head chef, two housekeepers, two gardeners, onsite facilities manager, and nighttime security. Upon separate arrangement, drivers and vehicles, babysitters, tennis pro, masseuses, yoga instructor, surf instructor and local guides are available. The property is big enough so guests feel they have enough personal space, even when the house is full. Whether it is relaxing in your own terrace or deck, taking a swim in the infinity pool, walking through the coconut grove, watching the waves from the cabana, playing a tennis match barefoot on the grass court, lounging in the living room or enjoying a massage--there is always a place to go where it will feel like nobody else is around. The staff, entirely from the local village, is very kind and personable and the chef cooks delicious, fresh and gourmet food every day, sourcing all ingredients locally. It is a pleasure to discuss the next day's meals with the chef, and sitting down at lunch and dinner is always a lovely experience. Guests can choose whether to try delicious local specialties, or a European menu. Fresh fish, salads, soups, fruit, vegetables and healthy grains feature prominently and breads are baked daily. Vegetarian and gluten-free meals can easily be arranged. The stunning sunsets and beachfront deck, plus the unique natural grotto on the beach provide a beautiful setting for weddings and special events. Catering for such events can be arranged in conjunction with a local hotel and the head chef. The villa is in complete harmony with its natural surroundings, as it is constructed from reclaimed ironwood, teak, stone and other locally-sourced materials. Values are sustainability, service excellence, quality facilities, fairness of price
Kuta was originally discovered by tourists as a surfing paradise. Today Kuta still attracts backpackers as well as families and tourists from all over the world, and is most notably a playground for young visitors from Australia. Kuta’s cosy lanes are full of affordable cafes, surf stores, and abundant shops to find the perfect souvenir. Flash new shopping malls along the beach offer top name merchandise. Legian appeals to a slightly more mature crowd and is equally commercial and has a long row of family-friendly hotels close to the beach. The five km long sandy stretch of Kuta is arguably the best beach front in Bali. The long wide stretch of sand is a sunbathers paradise. Other great beach activities are; people watching, surf lessons or a relaxing massage. Once the sun goes down, Kuta & Legian transform into a colorfully nightlife scene.
