Completed in late 1999, Villa Pangi Gita epitomizes the new wave of elegant luxury and comfort displayed in recently built homes in Bali. Its décor and amenities are several classes above the normal villa in Bali and easily exceed those of a five-star hotel. Each of the three luxurious bedrooms is privately set in its own bungalow-style structure.
Sloping landscaped grounds, bordered by the Pangi river at the bottom, also host a kitchen, dining room pavilion complete with bar, open-air living room, and separate study pavillion, a bale (Balinese gazebo) and swimming pool.
Designed by architects of the renowned Four Seasons Hotel, all the structures on the property are roofed in weathered ironwood shingles. The white of the walls and warm brown of the teak door and window frames and floors, form the primary colors of this villa, providing a lovely contrast against the greenery of the tropical plants located throughout the property.
Water plays a central and important role in the agriculturally based culture of Bali and is reflected here. Paths of white stone cross many water features, descending stairs, past small fountains with the relaxing sound of water in motion to lulling the senses throughout the villa. Walls with carved stone panels demonstrate the artistic caliber of Bali's artists, and further enhance the villa's local continuity. The owner is a serious collector of Asian antiquities, and pieces from his collection, some of museum quality, are to be seen throughout the villa.
All the air-conditioned bedrooms are luxuriously decorated with antiques and contain queen-sized teak beds with mosquito net canopies. Guests enjoy luxuriant and abundant privacy.
Each room has TV, video-player and stereo. Safes are also provided. The master bedroom features a walk-through closet and a large bathroom, including an oversized bathtub with a private deck and panoramic views of the surrounding environment to the pool and river.
Further back on the property are the two guest bedrooms. Adjoining each room is a large ensuite Bali-style bathroom with an outdoor shower and bathtub set in a private miniature garden.
At the center of the property, the open-air living room with two-tiered roof is furnished with immaculate, white cushioned sofas and several antiques. This carefully crafted and decorated room is the nexus of the property, and is an excellent place for entertaining and relaxing.
Leading off from the living room is a fully enclosed study, surrounded by a small pond, providing an air-conditioned sanctuary. The dark wood shelves on its walls hold an impressive collection of books, satellite television, and an extensive video and music library.
The infinity-style swimming pool is surrounded by a deck with lounge chairs and offers views of the rice paddies on the other side of the river. Nearby and sharing the same view is a bale (Balinese gazebo) furnished with overstuffed cushions, providing an ideal location for daytime massages. With its spacious and luxurious atmosphere, numerous antiques and fine details, Villa Pangi Gita is ideally suited for hosting small groups of discerning people who want to experience the best that Bali can provide.
