Kaba Kaba Estate - Entrance

Explore the Villa

Villa Layout

Kaba Kaba Estate’s eight bedrooms and numerous living spaces are distributed among a series of pavilions fanning out from a central courtyard and oriented to a panorama of emerald rice terraces. First is the entrance pavilion, which houses the spa, gym, and above, a rooftop bar, balé and performance space. On the ground floor of the main pavilion a foyer leads to the formal living room, the media room, the library and the master bedroom suite. Upstairs are two guest bedrooms. Next is the open-sided dining pavilion with guest kitchen and service kitchen tucked behind. To one side of the rolling lawn is the single-storey Pilisan Pavilion housing the games room and two guest suites separated by a living area, with the tennis court behind. On the other side is the two-storey Pande pavilion with its open living area and three guest suites.

Living Areas

Kaba Kaba Estate has an abundance of living areas spread throughout its grounds – some large enough to easily accommodate a full house of 18, some set back in private corners for those seeking a quiet retreat from the crowd.

A formal living room rests at the heart of the estate’s main building. Conversation flows in this elegant space with generous seating, gilded Burmese and Thai Buddhas displayed against a silk-lined wall, and spectacular 180-degree views beyond the pool and garden. Sliding glass doors on two sides can be closed for air-conditioned cool, or left open for fan-assisted tropical living.

Two more living rooms complement the guest pavilions. Designer fiberglass bulldogs guard the entrance to the Pilisan living area with its Andrew Martin ikat-covered seating, colourful kilim and garden deck. The open-sided Pande living area exudes Raffles-style elegance with its diamond-patterned marble floor, colonial-style cane seating, steamer trunks, whirring paddle fans and crisp white colour scheme splashed with blue accents from Chinese ceramics. The TV is discreetly hidden behind sliding doors, and pride of place is given to the stately table with an 18th-century marble top from a Rajasthan palace.

Dining room

A solid Suarwood table – so heavy it took 40 people to install – stretches over six metres and is surrounded by 18 upholstered dining chairs, commanding centre stage in the open-sided dining pavilion. Among the eclectic collection of Asian antiques that adorns this space is the gilded throne from a Burmese temple and an Indian Kerala river boat. Alongside is a gleaming open-plan guest kitchen with sit-up bar, coffee machine and TV and, behind a wall of gold lacquer hiding two wine fridges, the main service kitchen contains an enviable range of quality culinary equipment.

Media room

In this Moroccan-themed media room, curtains of rich maroon velvet frame plush sofas set on a Persian carpet and facing the 60-inch TV with Bose surround-sound. For an enhanced cinematic experience, movies can also be enjoyed on the huge retractable projector screen. In an adjacent washroom, where bevelled mirrors hang on metallic walls, the decadent souk-style continues.

Games room

Kids of all ages will love playing air hockey and table football in the games room, which has a long bench with bar chairs designed for gaming (bring your laptop), a walk-in play room full of toys, books and board games, and a cute washroom.

Library

The library adjacent to the master bedroom suite is the perfect spot for some quiet time in the company of an absorbing book. The shelves yield an intriguing selection, from popular fiction to photography-rich books on Bali; take your pick, then curl up on the canopied seat hand-printed with an antique map of the East Indies.

Outdoor living

On the upper level of the entrance pavilion is a huge entertainment space, with alfresco performance area, covered bar, and enormous rooftop balé where guests can enjoy Bali’s legendary sunsets sprawled in cushioned comfort. Around the main 25-metre swimming pool are deeply cushioned sunbeds-for-two and all-weather rattan seating arranged in a convivial u-shape. The bedrooms’ balconies and decks provide many private areas for quiet relaxation too.

Bedrooms

Kaba Kaba Estate offers seven bedroom suites – five with king-size beds and two with twin beds convertible to kings – each oriented for privacy with garden and rice-terrace views. An eighth room, with two sets of bunk beds, is designed specifically for kids.

Named after the major banjars (community councils) in the village, these large suites have marble-edged teakwood parquet floors spread out under a vaulted alang-alang thatched roof. Stunning antiques, contemporary paintings, hand-crafted ikat fabrics and statement furniture create a truly princely experience. Four-poster beds with King Koil Pillow-top mattresses dressed in high-thread-count bed linen ensure a sublime night’s sleep, helped by blackout curtains and a choice of air-conditioning or overhead fan. All suites have 32-inch TVs and Blu-ray players with iPod docks and speaker systems, dressing rooms and ensuite bathrooms with statement bathtub. The bedrooms and dressing rooms feature both air-conditioning and dehumidifiers, and bathrooms are also air-conditioned.

Beringkit master suite

From the library in Kaba Kaba’s main pavilion, a corridor lined with children’s paintings leads to the palatial master suite with its huge pillared bed on a raised platform. The large bathroom attached to this magnificent suite includes a private garden with alfresco shower and regal hamam-style sunken bath. Outside is a private sundeck and 6m x 3m plunge pool bordering the rice terraces.

Juntal pavilion guest suites

Upstairs in the main pavilion, the super-sized Juntal Daja suite is warm and inviting with Chinese-red walls, a richly coloured oriental carpet, and stunning black & white prints by Bealana Cho. A sitting area extends beyond sliding glass doors onto a large terrace where rice-field views can be enjoyed from a double daybed. Across the breezy hallway is the twin-bedded Juntal Delod suite with a balcony wrapping two sides.

Pande pavilion guest suites and children’s room

A private ironwood deck with circular loveseats overlooking a mature Kapok tree is the focus of the spacious colonial-styled Pande Beten suite. Within the Venetian-mirrored, marble bathroom, sliding shuttered windows by the bathtub give the option of a long soak-with-a-view, as an alternative to the garden shower. Above, the Pande Duur suite has the same expansive layout, with a stunning red-and-purple rug offsetting stylish white-painted furniture. This suite also has a bathtub-with-a-view, plus an ironwood balcony on two sides. Also on the second level is the kids’ room, Pande Alit, with two sets of bunk beds, beanbags, lots of toys and a fun, colourfully tiled shower room. The 11m x 0.2m wading pool lies just outside this pavilion.

Pilisan pavilion guest suites

Both suites in the Pilisan pavilion feature walls of carved teakwood and beds facing the garden beyond sliding glass doors. The Pilisan Daja suite has its own plunge pool just two steps from its stately four-poster bed, and louvred windows opening onto the bathtub in the indoor/outdoor bathroom. The Pilisan Delod suite is furnished with twin beds that can be configured as a king, and has both indoor and outdoor showers in its bathroom.

    We have come to the end of our week staying at the stunning Kaba Kaba Estate. I have to say with all honestly that this family holiday has been far and away the best one we have had, and our whole family (all of us) agree, from the service, to the food and catering, it is unbeatable. The lovely team, led by Rahmat, could not do more for us. Every requested was met with a smile, and they were always there but yet discreet. I can truly say I will be highly recommending Kaba Kaba Estate to everyone.It was our first visit to Bali, but it wont be our last. The beautiful Balinese culture and hospitality shown through every member of the staff, and the gorgeous of the estate made us feel we were in Paradise. With heartfelt thanks to you all.

    We come to Bali to celebrate the 30th Birthday of a very special family member. 9 adult and 8 children under 9 years of age. A very ambitious project but such a wise choice in selecting Kaba Kaba Estate. Rahmat and his incredible team ensure the villa was our home for 8 days. Such warm atmosphere where every staff member is attentive and yet unobtrusive. No doubt we brought a lot of noise to the estate but there is always a tranquil corner to be found in the vast home or in the magnificent gardens. It is a credit to Rahmat that under his leadership all staff are so friendly and approachable and wonderful with the children. We are so appreciate of the care taken here to accommodate so many little people, wonderful books, toys, scooters, pool toys,not to forget the magnificent kid-friendly meals provided. Thank you one and all.

    From the moment we arrived the staff of Kaba Kaba Estate have shown us true genuine and warm Balinese hospitality. Our group of 20 found Kaba Kaba to be an exceptional home away from home. Absolutely anything and everything that we asked for was always met with a smile, grace and a can do attitude. Kaba Kaba Estate is a stunning hidden home away from the hustle and bustle of the better known holiday resorts. It is perfect estate for those like us, who wanted to relax in beautiful and tastefully decorated luxury villa. One of our group owns and manages a hotel in Melbourne wants to take Rahmat Villa Manager home. Half of us work in travel industry, from airlines to cruise ships to managing travel agencies. We all know and understand how difficult it can be for things to seem effortless. We would like to all personally to thank Rahmat for his professionalism, relaxed approach and smile, we acknowledge his job is made easier from all the team members around him including the ones we don't see. Thank you.

    We were recommended to look at Kaba Kaba Estate to celebrate my 30th birthday and recent engagement. Our guests flew from LA, UK, Hong Kong and Singapore. The entire weekend experience was more than we could here asked for. The villa is well maintained and gorgeous. But what truly made our time special was attentive and gentle natural of the staff. No request was too small or too impossible to ask for. The entire staff took the initiative at all times and made our guests feel completely at home. However, two people truly deserve special mention, the first is Kadek, who from the moment we walked in was implacably dressed and ready to attend to every our need. The second is Rahmat, without Rahmat to managing the staff, our holiday would not have resulted in such memorable weekend. Rahmat also was helping me manage a fleet of cars going back and forth between other villas. He is such joy to deal with, he is always on the ball, understands guest needs and clearly goes over and above.

    This has been the most a magical time for us. Thank you very much for welcoming us so warmly and carrying us into your home. I can’t tell how well you have taken good care & we have felt it has simply been spectacular. The attention to detail is unrivaled. Rahmat is quite unique - completely relaxed on surface and yet an incredible manager ensuring everything all goes without mistake, quite incredible. Everyone from the security team, gardeners, engineer, housekeeping, butler, kitchen staff and secretary have been lovely, professional + fully smile + charm. We will miss you all very much. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you for making the memories.
