Villa Idanna is an idyllic Indonesian retreat for couples and families, perched 1,000 feet above sea level and shrouded by greenery. Overlooking the verdant Sidemen Valley and the sacred volcano Gunung Agung, it’s ideal for those who want to explore undiscovered Bali off the beaten track. Sit amid the rice terraces and overgrown ancient buildings and feel the pressures of modern life drift away. Alila Manggis hotel, with its fine dining and luxury wellness amenities, is a 45-minute drive away and Ngurah Rai International Airport is a 90-minute drive.
Wood-carved four-poster beds, flowing canopies and natural textures give Villa Idanna a meditative feel. Conceived and built by Florentine writer Idanna Pucci and her husband Terence Ward, the home was designed using only indigenous materials to blend into the spectacular landscape. This luxurious ‘house on a hill’ comprises two king-size bedrooms and a twin children’s room, a library and a stunning 20-metre pool. A dedicated staff of four, all native to the Sidemen Valley, will make sure you have the most relaxing stay possible, providing soothing massages and organic fine food.
Lose yourself in the beauty of the Indonesian landscape as you enjoy a hot-stone massage. Drink in the tropical horizon as you swim a few laps in the pool, heated by the warmth of the Bali sun. Follow in the footsteps of pilgrims and Brahman high priests as you take a walk through paddy fields and forests to find traditional temples and learn about Balinese culture. Take a trip to the beach and go snorkelling in the rich turquoise waters. As evening draws in, let your team prepare dinner as you sit back with a glass of wine and contemplate the spiritual magic of Gunung Agung.
