The Space

Discerning luxury, located only moments from beautiful Echo beach, Canggu, one of the best beaches in Bali and known by surfers the world over. Our Villa offers an alluring self-contained residence for short and long-term stays, reflecting the highest standards that one has come to expect in Bali.
Our Villa features modern Balinese interiors and designer finishes housed in two traditional teak Indonesian dwellings. It is located 23km from the Nguarah Rai International airport, 15 minutes from Nirwana Golf and Country Club (designed by Greg Norman), and 15 minutes from cosmopolitan Seminyak, home to international famous restaurants like Ku De Ta and the best boutique shopping on the island. Surfers travel thousand of kilometres to surf Canggu - you only have to ride 1km to choose between a beach or reef break.

  • My experience was perfect. Communication was swift and easy. The villa was a paradise and I would love stay again. The location was nice and quiet, although longer to reach Seminyak than I had expected, even with short cuts on scooters.
    All around a wonderful stay, thanks guys

  • We had a wonderful stay at Villa Tanah Barak. We have 2 small children who LOVED the pool and the layout really worked for us. It was handy being able to prepare our own meals in the very well stocked kitchen and there was nothing we needed that we didn't have. The extra towels, books and dvds were welcome additions. The location was great for us - a short walk to the beach and excellent meal options (Balinese, French, Indian, Spanish). We liked to that we were still able to experience the traditional Bali. We observed the daily rituals and during our stay the locals were burning the rice paddies around us. Shelley was responsive to our emails and provided us with additional information when requested. We'd highly recommend a stay at Tanah Barak.

  • Villa Tanah Barak was very comfortable and we enjoyed our stay very much. The villa was ideal for our extended visit. (2 months)
    Comfortable furniture and a well stocked kitchen made it very convenient for relaxing in the villa when not out exploring Bali. The bedroom that we slept in was cool and quiet. The connected bathroom was large with a “great” shower.
    Although we stayed during the “wet season”, it rained very little and we spent time in the beautiful pool almost every day.
    The butler and the pool cleaner came every three days to ensure that the villa and the pool were kept clean and well maintained. They were both receptive to any special requests regarding cleaning.
    The villas location was exactly what we were looking for. A relatively quiet area, close to the beach and restaurants. (about 2/3 minutes by scooter) We rented a scooter for getting around locally. Would recommend renting a van with a driver for more extended sight seeing and any major shopping trips.
    As mentioned in prior reviews, the WIFI was very slow when we arrived. But, within a week of our arrival, the WIFI system was upgraded and that made huge difference. The system works very good now. (good for Bali that is).
    All in all, we had a great visit and found the villa to be exactly as advertised.

  • Villa Tanah Barak is a very stylish villa with great amenities. If you wanted to stay put in the villa, there is a very complete kitchen, TV and internet. The internet can be very slow at times. The pool would be perfect for a refreshing dip. We visited during the wet season and the weather conspired against us having the opportunity to chill out in or around the pool.
    Location wise, the villa is great if you want to get away from busy tourist areas. Seminyak is still only a taxi ride away.
    Shelley was great to deal with. She was very accommodating and quick to respond to our questions/concerns.

  • Amazing! Stunning place, gorgeous pool, really fabulous service. House is VERY well stocked with cooking supplies, towels, pretty much anything you need. Oven, toaster oven, microwave, tons of pots and pans, etc. So incredibly relaxing. Villa staff is AMAZING. They come to clean twice a week but otherwise leave you plenty of privacy unless you need them. They are on call to cater to any request (they'll have a motorbike delivered to your house, or send a driver any time you need one, help organize day trips, etc.) The decor is beyond beautiful (really can't praise that highly enough, everything was just lovely) and all amenities are very comfy - beds, couches, cabana loungers. Couldn't recommend this more highly for a place to go to relax. I had a terrific time.

    Only two drawbacks: One, you've got to rent a scooter or driver if you want to get anywhere central. The location is not within walking distance of any grocery stores (there are mini-marts and several good restaurants, though!) and you will not be able to buy much food to cook or bottles of wine / spirits unless you get a driver or a moped and take a while to go shopping. Two, there is wifi but the internet was slow to the point of being unusable. (website hidden) took about 5-10 minutes to load, and other pages needed to be loaded then left alone for about 5 minutes before you could see page content, so this would not be a good place to stay and work. However, the restaurants that are nearby all have great wifi so if you only need to do any real computing every few days, it doesn't matter.

  • The service is good. The villa is pretty complete with the necessities. It's a beautiful villa! The main discomfort is the walkway to the bedrooms which are not sheltered so that can be a challenge when it rains and the lighting around the dining and living area. The lighting is subjective since we prefer brighter lights especially with 2 young kids. We are not used to such dim lights while watching tv.

    The Conceirge is excellent! Shelley is very prompt with her reply. I will recommend the villa anytime.

  • Our stay at Villa Tanah Barak was more than perfect! Shelley was very accommodating and quick to respond with answers to our many questions! The villa is beautiful and large! My favorite part was the ceiling in the main part of the villa!! Gorgeous! The 4 of us staying there had more than plenty of room to spread out! The house is in a quiet location which made for peaceful sleeps! About a 15-20 min walk to the beach or a 4 min scooter ride. The beach is more for surf, a little rough for swimming, especially if you have little ones! Restaurants nearby but the kitchen at the villa is equipped with all the proper hardware to cook up a feast! Overall, amazing experience! Can't wait to come back! Thanks Shelley for taking the stress and worry out of finding a perfect place to stay!

  • Our stay at Villa Tanah Barak was a most enjoyable one. The villa lived up to all of our expectations and the management service was excellent. Shelley was very efficient and responsive to requests for info leading up to the stay and a pleasure to deal with. The proximity to Echo Beach was good, especially via scooter. We will definitely be considering a return visit.

  • Wow, what a villa! What a location! What a holiday!
    My fiance and I just returned home from a stay in the beautiful Villa Tanah Barak, and are already dreaming of being back there. The location is perfect for those who surf – just a short motorbike ride from Echo Beach and a short walk away from the incredible Dues Ex Machina Cafe & Restaurant (one of our favourite places to eat in Bali). I loved the laid-back vibe of the area - far removed from the Kuta crowds yet central enough to drive into Seminyak for dinner or to take a day trip to Ubud or Uluwatu.
    The villa itself is well equipped with everything you need and the decor is beautifully done. It was my birthday the day we travelled to Bali, and I was treated to a beautiful bunch of flowers upon arrival at the villa - which was a lovely and thoughtful touch. Our bed was so comfortable it was hard to leave it, and the pool was absolute heaven. We have only great things to say about this place, and we will most certainly be back.
    Thank you to Shelley and the staff for all your help in ensuring we had a truly memorable and magical stay.
