Beraban Village, Tabanan, Bali, Indonesia

Villa Iskandar is a serene riverside sanctuary, built into the banks of the Yeh Penet River in Bali’s Tabanan Regency.

Designed over three levels, this elegant villa comprises four air-conditioned bedrooms, a large free-form swimming pool and ironwood deck, an open-sided living room and a more formal dining room.

A poolside dining area and a choice of balconies and decks provide endless options for relaxation.

The property’s stunning contemporary architecture is harmonized with dark timbers and a Chinese-themed decor, complete with antique furnishings and artwork throughout.

Against a gorgeous backdrop of towering trees and thickets of giant bamboo, guests will be serenaded by the song of the river and the sounds of nature.

Here, iridescent blue kingfishers, monitor lizards and other creatures are commonplace.

This peaceful out-of-town location feels like it is miles from anywhere but is actually only 13 kilometers from the restaurants, nightlife and shops of Petitenget and Seminyak.

A car and driver is available for up to 8 hours a day (at a special rate), to whisk you off for a night on the town or a round of golf at the nearby, award-winning Nirwana Bali Golf Club at Tanah Lot, whose cliff-top 7th hole is amongst the most photographed holes in the golf world.

Iskandar shares a dedicated 400-square-meter event space with its neighbour Villa Atacaya. When the two villas – known collectively as the Nyanyi Riverside Villas – are rented together they offer a 9-bedroom option for large groups of friends, extended families and wedding parties.

Villa Iskandar is situated in a jungle-fringed river gorge close to the village of Beraban in Bali’s Tabanan regency, which is known as Bali’s ‘rice bowl’ due to its vast terraced rice fields.
This quaint village bordering a river is a rare example of a traditional Balinese community barely touched by tourism and the rapid development to the south of the island.
Villa guests are accorded a privileged insight into the agricultural, religious and daily life of the friendly villagers.
Just four kilometers away is the famed Tanah Lot sea temple and the award-winning Greg Norman-designed Nirwana Bali Golf Course.
The nearest surf beaches, including Echo Beach, are about eight kilometers from the villa.

Bali, Indonesia
A trip to Bali can be filled with culture, nature, art, the spiritual or, even better, all of these. Apart from the wealth of Bali attractions, from the spectacular beaches of Kuta, Nusa Dua and Seminyak, or Ubud’s cultural heart and picturesque terraced rice fields, the northeastern coastal towns and Lombok Island are hidden gems awaiting discovery.
Bali is an Indonesian island known for its forested volcanic mountains, iconic rice paddies, beaches and coral reefs. The island is home to religious sites such as cliffside Uluwatu Temple. To the south, the beachside city of Kuta has lively bars, while Seminyak, Sanur and Nusa Dua are popular resort towns. The island is also known for its yoga and meditation retreats.
