Guest facilities at The Sanctuary River Retreat are second to none and no small detail has been overlooked. The property has been designed to bring people together with a generous living environment and communal dining space to share good food and conversation. There are also plenty of smaller areas and hidden niches where guests can spend quiet time alone.
At the heart of the Villa is an exquisite living room housed within a timber Joglo that conjures up images of a bygone era. Its soaring rooftop, designed to imitate a mountain, is supported by solid hardwood column and the effect is softened by white drapes that act as floating room dividers.
The living room is furnished in an array of classic chairs and cushioned sofas. There is an elaborately carved daybed in one corner together with occasional tables bearing Balinese ceremonial bowls and other aesthetic pieces. The open sides of this Joglo create the sensation of being cocooned from the outside world by nature.
The swimming pool is a T-shaped body of crystal clear water that lends itself to hours of quality relaxation. It is edged by a timber sun deck and takes in the tropical beauty of the surrounding rice terraces and lush flora. The pool is suitable for early morning laps or just splashing around to beat the heat of the day.
The timber dining pavilion features a long rustic table where guests can come together to enjoy leisurely evenings of wining and dining. It is attached to a well-equipped service kitchen that has a work island big enough to conduct cooking classes. A professional chef is on duty to prepare flavoursome meals on request.
The library is a multi-functional space to read, work or catch a movie on the large screen television. A cushioned sofa is an inviting spot to sit back and unwind, while an aquarium filled with tropical fish adds to the overall serenity. There’s a fine selection of books and lifestyle publications that guests are free to borrow for the entire duration of their stay.
A well-stocked bar has been set up to anticipate the holiday needs of seasoned travellers. From bottles of wine to premium spirits, cold beers and classic cocktails, almost all drink preferences are available. The bar is a great spot to unwind at the end of the day and gather socially with other guests.
