About Villa Taman Sorga
With one glance at Villa Taman Sorga’s splendid living pavilion, guests are assured they are somewhere rather special. An entire village of craftsmen from the Gianyar regency spent months working in-situ to create this magnificent artefact-filled structure with its soaring two-tiered roof, intricately carved gilded pillars and Batu Batik wall.
Villa Taman Sorga was designed by its long-term-Bali-expat owners as a spacious home for their growing family, revealing a Swiss eye for detail, South American sense of style, and a passion for Bali’s arts and crafts. With the addition of a grand colonnaded guest wing in 2010, the villa now juxtaposes traditional ‘Bali style’ with contemporary elements to create a unique expression of tropical Balinese living. Clustered around the curvaceous pool, a series of pavilions house the multiple living and dining spaces, six bedrooms, gourmet kitchen and gym, combining old and new and contrasting heritage treasures with hi-tech amenities: merbau, teak and terrazzo floors meet granite counter tops and marble walls; an antique Singha statue presides over modern leather sofas; flat-screen TVs perch on antique chests; a heritage dresser stands by a hydro-massage shower, and top-range King Koil mattresses grace royal canopied beds: all delightful touches that add to the villa’s unique character.
Further 21st century luxuries include jacuzzis, home theatre systems and air-conditioning throughout – even in the bathrooms. And contributing immeasurably to the experience is the long-serving staff team, whose strong attachment to the villa clearly shows in the pride with which they take care of their guests.
Villa Taman Sorga is ideal for multi-generation families or groups of friends looking to socialise while at the same time enjoying private corners and plenty of breathing space. Many guests are so comfortable in this home-from-home that they choose to stay put, but for those keen to venture beyond the estate, there’s the beach to explore, temples to visit, and Sanur’s myriad restaurants, boutiques and spas to discover.
