Stepping into the sublime tropical gardens of The Gangsa Private Villa at Sanur, I feel like I’ve dropped in to visit old friends. Albeit friends with exceptionally refined tastes in art, design and cuisine!
The effect of the warm greeting, abundance of emerald green foliage and serenity - inducing arrangements of ponds, moss coated statues and incense shrouded spirit houses is immediate and deeply- felt. I’m breathing deeper and smiling wider within moments.

The result is an uber- stylish, sensual treat that feels blissfully Eden-esque, even though the acclaimed shopping, dining, nightlife and cultural buzz of southern Bali is within easy reach.
