Introducing The Santai
The Santai is a stylish complex of 11 boutique villas set amidst emerald green rice paddies in the laid-back village of Umalas, neighbouring with Seminyak. The estate is made up of 5 two-bedroom abodes and 6 three-bedroom properties, each styled with contemporary twist exuding ubiquitous Balinese charm. Each villa is a peaceful oasis with a generously-sized pool, spacious living area and a fully-equipped kitchen. The Santai is home to sophisticated Gong Restaurant, and as soon as you step outside the resort, you will find a handful of cool organic cafes.
The Santai Living
The Santai translates as “relaxed” from Indonesian, and the villa lives up to its name offering an utterly relaxed setting and ambience. Each villa within an estate boasts a private walled garden and a generously-sized swimming pool shimmering in the centre.
While the two-bedroom retreats come with enclosed living areas offering the air-conditioned comfort, the three-bedroom villas feature an open-sided layout allowing natural breeze to cool off the room. Encompassing the dining table in the spacious living area, the two-bedroom villas offer an indoor dining and three-bedroom estates invite guests to indulge in the alfresco feast with the table perched on the covered poolside terrace.
The Santai Bedrooms
Two Bedroom Villa
Two-bedroom villas include one room with a king-sized bed and one suite with two single beds, which can also be set up as a king bed if needed. Two bedrooms are located on either side of the pool.
Three Bedroom Villa
In three-bedroom villas, there are two suites with king-sized beds and one bedroom with two single beds, which can be pushed together to create a king-sized bed if needed. All bedrooms are housed in a single row overlooking the pool.
The Santai Location
The Santai is located in relaxed Umalas village, sandwiched between chic Seminyak and trendy Canggu. The estate nestles steps away from some authentic eateries including Thai Spice, Eko Café Bali and MoYa Café. A 15-minute drive brings you to the black sand beach great for surfing and witnessing unforgettable Bali sunsets.
