The majestic 6-bedroom residence known as ‘Taman Sorga’, meaning ‘Heavenly Garden’ is located just five minutes’ walk from the beach in the historical village of Sanur on Bali’s southeast coast. Here guests can escape from the world within an environment of lush tropical gardens, serenity and bliss.
About Villa Taman Sorga
Resting on 3600 square metres of land in a magnificent tropical garden, Taman Sorga can sleep up to 12 guests. It is comprised of a main two-storey house furnished with Indonesian antiques, a contemporary styled two-storey guest wing, a traditional Balinese Wantilan living pavilion, a state-of-the-art gourmet kitchen, an indoor/outdoor dining room, a gym, a pool house, and a 17-metre freeform swimming pool.
All bedrooms have audio visual facilities, water is solar heated and WiFi is accessible throughout.
Taman Sorga has been featured in numerous architectural magazines and books showcasing 'Contemporary Balinese' luxury lifestyle. It is ideally suited to large families or discerning groups of friends looking for space, grandeur, comfort and privacy with close access to the shops, restaurants and beach.
The village of Sanur is typified by shady lanes, vine-draped coral walls, sedate leafy compounds, majestic trees and a five-kilometre shoreline within a gentle reef-sheltered lagoon. The ambience is mellow, restful and cosmopolitan.
Foreign visitors rub shoulders with the locals, chic fashion shops are bordered by traditional markets, and a plethora of hidden temples can be found squeezed in between art galleries and highly touted restaurants.
Swimming is safe, and surfers can take a boat out to the nearby reef. Water sports include catamaran sailing, scuba diving, snorkelling, fishing, windsurfing, kitesurfing and wakeboarding.
Villa Taman Sorga is just twenty-five minutes drive from Bali’s international airport, forty minutes from the cultural town of Ubud, twenty minutes from Sukawati art and handicraft market, and twenty-five minutes from the restaurants, shops and nightlife of Kuta and Seminyak.
The recent construction of the Sanur-Kusumba by-pass, positions Sanur within easy driving distance of most of Bali’s tourist attractions. Chauffeur or self-drive services are available at extra cost.

Accommodation comprises an open-sided living pavilion, an air-conditioned media room and six bedrooms in either the main house, guest wing pavilion or separate stand-alone pavilions.
The main house is a two-storey pavilion, roofed in alang-alang thatch, comprising two double bedrooms, a wrap-around terrace on the second floor, an open-air living room on ground level and a wine cellar. The architecture and antique furnishings showcase the old Bali style – eclectic, historic and romantic.
Downstairs master suite
The downstairs, air-conditioned master suite features a timber floor, a king size canopied four-poster bed, a traditional Kartini sofa, and beautiful antique carved Javanese doors.
It is equipped with a TV and DVD player. The splendid ensuite bathroom is long and narrow, complete with a glass roof. At one end is a toilet and bidé behind carved Balinese doors, while at the other end an archway opens into a walk-in circular marble space with a shower. There are also twin washbasins and mirrors in carved frames.
Upstairs master bedroom
A staircase leads up to the air-conditioned master bedroom under a soaring roof. The room is furnished with a regal pair of queen-sized beds resting within an antique four poster Balinese ‘bale’ pavilion, which comes from a palace in Singaraja and was originally used for ceremonies.
A carved griffin stands guard upon the canopy, and a scene from The Ramayana Hindu epic is depicted in coloured paintings on the headboards. There is also a walk-in closet, and a 42” TV and DVD player.
The ensuite bathroom is fitted with a large glass-walled walk-in shower, twin marble washbasins, and an ornate elephant-themed mirror from Thailand. Steps lead up into a large sunken bathtub and there is also an old apotik chest. Louvre doors from the bedroom open onto a broad wooden balcony, positioned on two sides with gorgeous views of the garden, and furnished with a carved daybed and a lazy hammock for truly chilling out.
The guest wing is situated away from the main house on the opposite side of the swimming pool. This two-storey building is characterised by colonial-inspired modern architecture with an ironwood shingle roof, a colonnaded covered terrace and a wide upper balcony running the length of the building.
The rooms are spacious and light with high ceilings, polished tiled floors, contemporary furnishings and a cream and white décor. This wing can comfortably accommodate up to six guests in its three air-conditioned bedrooms. The air-conditioned studio can sleep up to two people if required. The terrace is punctuated with modern Balinese statues.
Guest wing master bedroom
The master bedroom in the guest wing is furnished with a king bed and a daybed, a desk, chairs, and an ottoman. It is equipped with a TV and DVD player and surround sound, an iPod dock and a safe deposit box.
Adjacent is a large dressing room with loads of storage and hanging space, and the ensuite bathroom in cream marble is fitted with a large Jacuzzi bathtub, positioned centrally, twin washbasins, a bidé, a toilet, and a state-of-the-art Appollo massage shower, incorporating a multi-positional overhead shower, a handheld shower, and eight hydro-massage body jets.
Guest wing second bedroom
The second bedroom is very similar, in the same décor with a king bed, a dressing area at the back, and a cream marble bathroom with an Appollo massage shower.
Guest wing twins
Additionally, there are two twin rooms, both with beds that can be pushed together to make a double bed. Each has an ensuite marble bathroom with a small tub, twin washbasins and a massage shower.
All bedrooms are equipped with safes, iPod docks and audio visual facilities.
Foods and Beverages
The immaculate polished kitchen is fully equipped with a five-burner gas hob and oven, fridge and everything else that the cook needs to create delicious meals. There is a suggestion menu and the staff will do the grocery shopping.
Food and beverage items are charged based on grocery cost system. Guests will need to provide some money in advance and the staff will do the shopping for you and keep the receipts for your reference.
Food items and beverages are charged at cost price. Please ask your manager if you wish to check your daily expense.
Special requests & dietary requirements
Should you have a request for a dish not on the menu, or a special dietary requirement, please feel free to ask the chef, who will strive to comply with all of your wishes.
Large dining groups
While the villa has large food preparation areas, it is not a restaurant and cannot support each individual guest ordering different foods for same dining periods. If you have a large group it is advisable that the group dines on the same dish or that you order several dishes to be shared.
Please allow at least one day’s notice, and feel free to discuss any requirements with the chef or villa manager.
Bali is well known for its relaxing massages and world-class spas. While the manager will be happy to facilitate bookings at well-known spas, many treatments are available in the privacy of the villa at a fraction of the price.
Massage, body scrubs, body wraps, facials, pedicures, manicures, and hair braiding are just some of the treatments which can be enjoyed in-house. These may be arranged at relatively short notice.
