Introduction
Sankara is a Sanskrit word meaning The beneficent The blissmaker (sam happiness, bliss + kara maker)

Set on 2645m2 of land, Sankara is a luxurious 5 bedrooms villa and was designed to make the most its now scarcely available beautiful beach front location.

Its charm and luxury is bedded in the following elements :
-our beach front property offers spectacular views of the ocean, a small river conveniently acting as boundary and buffer from the beach. Crossing over, another 500m2 of beach land comes with the property. Featuring glistening black sand , the beach is beautiful.

-A magnificent 100m2 black pool (20 x 5 x 1.45m deep), lined with black lava stone,,reflects the ever changing colours of the sky. A 360 deg. Infinity edge pattern at ground level gives a floating impression within the surrounding garden and the front end drops over the lower garden, literally rejoining it with the ocean.

A salt chlorinated water treatment makes the water soft and gentle to skin and eyes, perfect for chidlren.

-Right beside the pool drop sits a comfortable 3m diameter jacuzzi on its private ironwood deck. All fitted with hot water, bubbles and jets, facing the ocean.

-5 bedrooms within 4 spacious suites

2 detached garden suites within their own walled courtyard :
The Raja suite offers an additional bedroom, sharing the large bathroom with garden, convenient for families

2 ocean view suites located on the first floor with large balconies
The Timur (east) and Barat (West) suites both offer large balconies facing the ocean and large bathroom on balconies also offering indoor and outdoor spaces

All 4 bathrooms are very different and were all designed to provide a large and sensual space, privacy and intimacy within a lush tropical setting. Indoor and outdoor spaces are offered with modern amenities, fans and air conditioning so that it is comfortable at all times. Very spacious dressing rooms .

-The center part of the property features a large inner garden, between the 2 detached garden suites and the main building, almost like a green courtyard, allowing for a calmer ambiance, for an afternoon tea and ideal for children to play.

-A blend of Traditional Balinese architectural and decorative features such as thatched

roofs, Balinese doors and local materials and modern design
– Lush tropical landscape, including its own fruit, vegetable and herb garden
– The tranquillity of Canggu with the proximity of the Seminyak area,15 mn away from the shopping and dining activities. 5min away from the Canggu club.

Above it all, it is about the ocean, exuding a soothing almost magical sense of peace, and providing with a constant source of entertainment in the background with surfers, horseriders or fishermens boats, the overwhelming nature and the variances in colour throughout the day , and last but not least the people of Bali and their culture.
