Enter Villa Hansa via a glamorous foliage-fringed staircase leading to a stunning Javanese joglo living space with a guest kitchen and bar. To the left is the pool, from which sun decks and gardens lead to an open-sided dining pavilion. Upstairs behind a garden is a massage room. Four luxurious bedrooms border the pool and beyond these is the barbecue balé. The master suite, movie room and adjoining timber gladak bedroom lie to one side of the estate, with the yoga studio below and another gladak bedroom at the rear.
At Villa Hansa’s heart is a repurposed antique timber joglo with floor-to-ceiling windows and cool air conditioning. A deep cushioned sofa and soft chairs are positioned below an ornately carved timber tampung sari (the heavily stepped and sculpted centre of the joglo ceiling) while a two-metre-long table hewn from a single piece of wood is housed in a cool corner. A guest kitchen and service counter lies behind a bar that has comfortable stool seating for four people. Antiques and rare artefacts, including a beautiful old china cabinet and rattan rooster cages, give this room a sleek and polished ambiance.
Overlooking Villa Hansa’s swimming pool is a casual open-fronted, fan-cooled pavilion that is perfect for relaxed dining, board games and simply chilling. The main kitchen, where staff create gourmet meals and brew delicious ginger tea, is in this pavilion, which is bordered by gardens – both water and flowering – and is decorated with quirky pieces, including a series of chicken statues. The dining table here seats 12 people and several low-slung chairs provide a comfy base from which to relax and watch over pool shenanigans. The polished timber floors are bordered with white stone and the vibe is shabby chic.
Villa Hansa’s 18-metre swimming pool is deep at one end and very shallow at the other, making it perfect for morning laps, a spot of diving or a place for little people to splash. Elegant daybeds and sun loungers surround the pool – some under the shade of umbrellas. A fresh water shower, carved in the image of a Hindu goddess, is recessed into the garden borders.
A large balé, facing the river and rice fields at the far side of the gardens, makes a great space for lazy barbecue lunches interspersed by cooling dips in the pool and friendly tournaments at the full size pool table.
Tucked into a quite corner by the river is the spacious yoga studio. This is the perfect place to spend a quiet morning of meditation and asanas, or to watch a traditional Balinese dance performance, which the manager will happy arrange.
Villa Hansa’s seven luxurious bedrooms are housed beneath elegant ironwood-shingle roofs with ceilings of exposed beams and woven rattan. Ensuite bathrooms feature private walled garden spaces that epitomise chic tropical elan. From large windows views of lush green landscapes predominate. Four of the villa’s guest bedrooms are named after the Hindu gods Brahma, Wisnu, Siwa and Ganesha; all featuring netted four-poster king-size beds and cooled by fans and air conditioning.
The master suite offers unrivalled luxury and privacy with a California king-size bed positioned below a rare 400-year old joglo carving. Bedside lighting controls are integrated into the teak bedframe and café-style seating is provided at two tables. A sundeck leads to a 12-metre infinity pool and wraps around to a secluded walled courtyard. The bathroom features a huge sunken bath surrounded by a fish-filled pond. A private television room lies behind the master suite.
This beautifully earthy antique Indonesian building makes an ideal kids bedroom. The room features timber shuttered windows and slatted walls plus a sweet veranda. A wonderfully preserved four-poster queen-size daybed makes a gorgeous centrepiece to the room, which also has an antique wardrobe, desk and chair plus a cushioned wooden bench seat. The ensuite bathroom is fitted with a rectangular volcanic stone bathtub, unique hand crafted tiles, separate shower and vanity. It is connected to the master suite via the television room.
This is another wonderful example of a preserved traditional Indonesian timber house with a single daybed making it particularly suitable for kids, teens or friends sharing. This gladak is located on grassy lawns and surrounded by mature gardens. The ensuite bathroom has an outdoor shower.
This building has two bedrooms – Siwa on the ground floor and Ganesha upstairs. Both are furnished with netted four-poster king-size beds and feature dressing rooms and sitting areas. Siwa boasts a small private terrace overlooking the tropical gardens and river, while the Ganesha suite has a shockingly green outlook from large windows. Both ensuites are fitted with round travertine baths and indoor showers.
The Wisnu and Brahma suites both overlook the pool and have comfortable king-size four-poster beds and separate dressing rooms. Interiors here are more hip than traditional, and have a chilled vibe. Both rooms are furnished with sofas and feature interesting statuary. Ensuites are fitted with circular tubs and the private garden in Wisnu’s bathroom is an extraordinary riot of tropical flowers, including heliconia, torch ginger and an ancient frangipani tree.

Hansa Villa has exceeded our expectations, it is so beautiful with it's landscaped garden and luxurious accommodation. The master suite makes us feel like royalty. The carved canopy is amazing, beautifully crafted by Balinese wood carvers. The ambience in the gardens is pure serenity. The running water, lily ponds and rice paddies opposite the river cocoon us in the very best Bali has to offer. All the staff are so caring and tend to our every need. They are wonderful with a month old Madison, babysitting her while her parents can sit and eat with the rest of the family. It has been so lovely together as a family. It's back to Australia. Thank you Heny and all the lovely staff

A perfect place for family holiday, there were 10 of us including a child. We had plenty of space for private and communal activities. The gardens and the Balinese touches everywhere blew us away with their beauty and tranquility. We loved the 2 pools and the pool table. A special mention must be made for the care all staff made to make our stay so special. We felt we were at home. Thank you Putu for the really wonderful food and to Made for driving us everywhere and to Henny for making sure we had everything we needed. Thank you Villa Hansa - an unforgettable holiday.

We loved our stay at the villa. This was our first time to Bali and it made quite an impression. Our family is looking forward to coming back again someday. We had our family of 5 (with 3 teenage daughters) plus my retired parents. The main living area was big and comfortable and decorated beautifully. The bedrooms were all lovely and were very roomy. The bathrooms tended to have a few insects, but was expected since they are outdoor bathrooms. The staff was amazing and catered to our every wish. We felt like they were family by the end of our week. We also enjoyed having masseuses come to give us poolside massages. The pool and poolside area was gorgeous and we enjoyed it every day.

Great pool and deck area. Bedrooms and bathrooms very comfortable. Living area a little basic and needs up dating and needs some audio equipment. Staff pleasant and helpful but could do with a little more finesse - Needs some signage, very hard for taxis to find. Over all good value.
February 24th, 2012 - February 27th, 2012
We enjoyed our stay at Villa Hansa. It is a nice and charming villa in a quite location. The staff is very polite and made us feel at home. However, in terms of location, it is a little too far away from the beach and traffic is horrible! But in an overall, it is definitly value for money.
