Simona Oasis & Spa (5 br) in Canggu

simona1

The spectacular Simona Oasis & Spa is a 5-bedroom destination villa and spa, resting upon a venerated spur of land fed by a holy spring at the confluence of two rivers. The single storey accommodation comprises seven self-contained thatched pavilions, and is located close to the beach at Canggu, a traditional fishing village on Balis southwest coast.
The property is heralded by a dramatic Balinese gateway of carved stone and double doors, leading into an entrance garden bordered on one side by a Palimanan stone wall showcasing a magnificent carving in the design of tropical leaves.
Living & Dining Pavilion
Entering the main open air living and dining pavilion, guests will step over ornamental ponds fed by gin-clear natural spring water. With a large dining table at one end and a bar at the other, this raised pavilion presides over the garden and is furnished with comfy daybeds and sofas, a big coffee table and Buddha lamp stands. The coffee and cream decor, together with the reddish-hued bengkirai wood floor, sets the theme throughout the property, while natural breezes enhanced by paddle ceiling fans keep the area cool.

Garden and Swimming Pool

Wide lava stone steps lead down onto a grass and paving stone chequerboard terrace, ideal for dance performances and cocktail parties. Two ancient frangipani trees, together with a Buddha head set within an alcove in one corner, create a peaceful ambience. More steps wind down onto another lawn towards the swimming pool.
The swimming pool is elevated above the garden, and flanked by a delightful gazebo known as a bale bengong, meaning a place to relax, dream and do nothing. Complete with a large wooden cowbell, which guests can ring whenever they need to be served with drinks, refreshments or lunch, the gazebo is made comfortable with soft cushions. The raised timber pool deck is furnished with ten sunloungers and four umbrellas. The pool measures 13 x 5.6 metres and is 1.6 metres in depth.

Bedrooms 1, 2, 3 & 4

The bedrooms and their adjoining garden bathrooms are all located in self contained thatched pavilions. Bedrooms 1 & 2 are linked by an open corridor sheltered by a roof. A living tree has been preserved and grows straight through the roof of the corridor, in front of which is a wooden balcony-style deck, complete with a built-in daybed overlooking the river and the beautiful temple on the opposite side.
Each air-conditioned bedroom is entered by double doors showcasing engraved brass handles, and each is characterised by dark reddish brown bengkirai wood floors under soaring roofs. Every bedroom boasts an LCD flat screen individually controlled satellite TV, enabling guests to watch satellite channels independently of each other. Each is complemented by a DVD player, quality sound system and iPod dock. Bedrooms 1, 3 & 4 are furnished with built-in canopied double beds made up with crisp white bed linen. Bedroom 2 features two single beds. Picture windows capture the riverside views, and opulent open-air bathrooms boast cream terrazzo floors, twin washbasins, daybeds for lounging, and large terrazzo bathtubs.

Master Bedroom

The Master Bedroom features a deck-style balcony on two sides, with steps that lead down to a riverside bale relaxation pavilion. The bedroom is notable for the Buddha head and soft panels behind the double bed, flanked by two polished solid wood tree trunks, lit with discreet lighting. There is also a desk, and a dressing area with a huge mirror and a padded ottoman. The bathroom and outdoor Jacuzzi is accessed by a covered walkway with wooden pillars and spring water ponds on either side. The Jacuzzi rests within a thatched pavilion, surrounded by flowering shrubs and overlooking the river. The bathroom features arched open doorways, comfortable furnishings, twin washbasins, a toilet, and a shower big enough for two.

Guest Washrooms

The Guest Washrooms are situated in a thatched pavilion with orange walls and painted wooden fretwork screens, adding a bold splash of colour to the decor.
Kitchen
The Kitchen is a chefs dream. Spacious, immaculate and professionally equipped, it features cream terrazzo surfaces, cabinets and adjacent store rooms. There is also a laundry and a service area hidden away at the back.

Spa
The spa sits on the triangular piece of land at the point where the two rivers meet. A sacred
 underground spring was recently discovered on this enchanted spot, making it the perfect setting for a spa. On the opposite side of the river is Batur Sari Temple, where the local Balinese people make offerings of flowers and fruit to the gods.
The spa area is accessed via a little bridge under a pergola dripping in cascading thunbergia, bounded by torch ginger, giant taro leaves and frangipani trees. Guests will be greeted by a pair of open-air, raised, stone bathtubs exquisitely hand carved, each in the shape of a 2-headed elephant with water spouting from the trunks. The tubs, complete with ornate floral patterns on the sides, are set within a spring water pool and accessed by a wooden deck. This is a magical place for a splash or a soak after a spa treatment.
