Description

Villa Wastra

Villa Wastra is located in the banjar (or village association/local government unique to Bali) of Penyabangan, village of Kerta, Payangan district, Gianyar Regency. It is approximately one and a half to two hours from the airport, depending on the traffic. The estate is perched on a lip of a valley looking down upon a tributary of the Ayung River in the center of the island. The tropical rain forest vegetation of this part of Bali is still dense with various kinds of mountain ferns, and bamboo. The main economic resources of the village are agriculture and bamboo.

Penyabangan is located at 800 meters above sea-level on the slope of Mount Batur. It has a temperature of 24 degrees Celcius during the day and 20 degrees during the night. Rainfall during the rainy season in December until February is quite high. The dry season is from June to October.

Thirteen kilometres north of Penyabangan is the mountain village of Kintamani, on the rim of mount Batur crater, offering a spectacular view of Lake Batur. In Trunyan, on the shore of Lake Batur one can see the ancient ways of the Bali Aga tradition. The Bali Aga claim to be the oldest inhabitants of Bali, aboriginals who have lived here before the Javanese kingdom of Majapahit’s invasion in 1343. Other activities in the area are white-water rafting in the Ayung River, elephant safari in the jungle, Bali Zoo, birdpark and many possibilities for hiking or cycling on the slopes of the mountain or just walking through traditional old villages hidden among ricefields or following narrow footpaths between green embankments.

The suite also includes an outdoor kitchen and indoor dining area, so guests have the option to enjoy private meals. The suite is named after the shimmering splashes of gold and silver threads found in the songket cloths. The art of songket is closely associated with Bali’s traditional kingdoms and royal families. Songket cloth is intended for public theatrical performances and ceremonial displays.

Dinners consist of home-cooked rijsttafel  a Dutch word that literally translates to "rice table", is an elaborate meal consisting of many side dishes served in small portions, accompanied by rice prepared in several different ways.

In general, dinner will start approximately at 7 or 7.30 pm, or by request of the guest, with a soup or an appetizer, followed by a 5 or 6 main course of vegetables, meat or fish, curry-dish, fritters, noodles, white rice, crackers, including assorted condiments that complete a certain dish. After the main course, our guests are served a dessert or fresh fruit, tea or coffee. Please order a day ahead, or at least 8 hours before dinnertime.
