Indonesia » Bali » Seseh-Tanah Lot » Taman Ahimsa - an elite haven



Taman Ahimsa means ‘Garden of Peace’ which, apart from the rhythmic waves breaking just beyond the boundary of this magical seven-bedroomed villa on Bali’s south-west coast, describes the setting perfectly.  Traditional materials of thatch, coconut husks, bamboo, rattan and recycled wood enhance a stunning natural environment, while Indonesian artefacts and ornate handmade fabrics lend unique character to interiors.  After a day of relaxation or an invigorating massage by the pool, let your taste buds be dazzled by the villa’s skilled chef and his team before heading back to your dreamy bedroom pavilion with its starlit ocean views.

Location

Taman Ahimsa is in the tiny village of Cemagi on Bali’s southwest coast, 11km north of Canggu and 9km south of Tanah Lot sea temple and the famous Nirwana Bali Golf Course. Cemagi is approached through the pretty village of Mengening, along narrow streets surrounded by rice fields and punctuated by holy banyan trees. Although only 14km from the cosmopolitan glamour of Seminyak, these two villages retain the customs and culture of old Bali – there is a daily fruit and vegetable market, cows are herded through the fields and you can watch the rice and other crops being planted and harvested. Vibrant temple ceremonies are also a common sight, and you will often hear the sound of ritual music. The pretty beach in front of Taman Ahimsa offers delightful walks but is unsafe for swimming.

About Seseh-Tanah Lot

A few kilometres to the north west of Canggu, a towering banyan—one of the ‘elders’ of the tree kingdom—heralds the turning to Seseh, a traditional beachside village approached via an avenue of coconut palms.

Seseh and the tiny neighbouring villages of Sogsogan and Cemagi still retain the customs and culture of old Bali. Here, you will see farmers in conical hats riding rusty old upright bicycles, as well as frequent, colourful processions to Seseh’s large beachside temple. There are no international restaurants here, but you might just see a barong (a high-spirited, benevolent beast representing the power of good; danced by two men inside an ornate costume) dancing on the street. The good news, for folks who want to immerse themselves in the customs and culture of old Bali, is that the villagers encourage and welcome congenial visitors. Although there are now many private rental villas in these three villages, they have seamlessly integrated without detracting from the simplicity and charm of the location. This is an ideal destination for those who want to get lost in the beauty of the countryside, and for those who want to engage with the local people and gain privileged insights into the Balinese Hindu lifestyle.

A little further up the coast is Tanah Lot, famous for its dramatic and venerated sea temple, which is perched on a craggy wave-lashed rock at the edge of the glistening black shoreline. It is probably the most photographed sight in Bali, especially in the late afternoon when its splendid profile is silhouetted against the setting sun. The Tanah Lot locale is also home to a number of private villas due to presence of the 18-hole, 72-par, championship-standard Nirwana Bali Golf Club, which is frequently voted the number one golf course in Asia. This is, however, still a far-flung area with few facilities other than the souvenir stalls and simple eateries within the temple grounds, and three international restaurants within Pan Pacific Nirwana Bali Resort.


About Bali

Bali is Indonesia’s most popular tourist location and is considered one of Asia's premier tropical island destinations. Steeped in history and renowned for its artistic way of life, Bali is a peaceful contrast to some of the more frantic destinations Asia has to offer.

The inner peace and creative talents of the Balinese has attracted artists the world over fascinated by local dancers, silversmiths, wood carvers, potters and painters that seem to pervade throughout the island. The abundant verdant fields and surrounding sea have long supplied Bali with an easy surplus of food leaving time for life’s more artistic past times. As a result everything in Bali has a creative and religious element centred around the local Banjar (residents association) – little, adorned temples are everywhere, doors are covered in intricate carvings, huge kites ward off evil spirits and colourful roadside ceremonies bring traffic to a standstill.

Bali is a popular destination principally from Australia and Asia but also from all over Europe. The island welcomes thousands of visitors each year to a relaxing lifestyle, stunning beaches, world class surf, vibrant villages, and spectacular scenery all with an exquisite tropical climate. Located approximately two hours’ flying time from Singapore the island is serviced by an international airport at Denpasar with direct flights to and from many major cities in Asia, Europe and Australia and many more via Jakarta, Indonesia’s capital.

The island offers an impressive range of leisure and lifestyle amenities including world-class golf courses, wonderful seascapes for surfing, diving and snorkelling as well as luxurious spas, chic boutiques, tropical forests, towering volcanoes and international cuisine.

Our review   Overall Rating: 8.60


If you’re looking for nightlife and shopping, Taman Ahimsa is probably not the villa for you, but if you want to retreat from the world, awaken your soul, practice yoga and meditation, eat healthy food and experience therapeutic massages, this transformative place will inspire you more than you ever imagined possible. Even if you’re not really into the spiritual concept, and you don’t understand much about chakras, mandala thankas, crystals and healing circles, you will still appreciate the beautiful close-to-nature setting, the sight and sound of the sea, the romantic architecture and the peaceful ambiance.

Although the villa promotes the holistic concept, you don’t have to be on a spiritual retreat to come here; but who knows, you might just be inspired to experience something new. The gardens and interiors are fun to explore too, in every room we found a traditional Balinese instrument, an extraordinary crystal or an antique, or a funky lamp or table. Floors and doors are made from old teak, ironwood and two-toned tamarind wood, which has been recycled from boats and old buildings. Please note the villa has a no smoking policy.

Taman Ahimsa is managed by Fivelements, a company that specialises in holistic healing retreats, centred at Puri Ahimsa, 20km away. For a truly amazing experience arrange for the villa’s driver to take you to Fivelements Puri Ahimsa for a holistic treatment performed by an authentic Balinese healer.

Taman Ahimsa is a dream! We had wonderful high expectations but this place rose above and beyond! All twelve of us fell in love with Taman Ahimsa. The food, staff, scenery and facilities are all outstanding. Most importantly, Taman Ahimsa created the perfect back drop for our wedding. It was beautiful beyond words. The staffs including Prama, were so kind and professionally warm. Thank you for helping create life long memories. We will never forget our stay here. Thank you again for all your extraordinary hospitality.

We decided to book the whole 7 bedrooms villa and it was amazing. Staying here not only gives us a sense of Bali that other places gives but an additional "traditional" feeling. The finishing touch on the place would be the people. The courtesies, always helping to provide for us, the best stay in our lives. I'd like to thank to Ms Prama, Mirah, Edi for all the smiles, service and help during our stay. This is a wonderful place and we are sure to return.

Taman Ahimsa was one of the best accommodations we've ever stayed at. We got married there and stayed with our wedding party. The place is beautiful and has a lovely bali charm. The pool looking out onto the ocean is breathtaking. The living area was spacious and comfortable. We were impressed with the following - the pest control - there was a serious lack of mosquitos, even in the outdoor bathrooms - the staff was amazing. They were able to accommodate everything - arranging drivers, massages, manicures in addition to our requests related to the wedding. - The chef - the food was delicious. - The turn down service in the evening, attention to details - On the night of our wedding, we got an extra special turn down service with rose petals on the bed and rose petals which spelled out our initials in the bath. It is in Cemagi, rural Bali with not much else around. You definitely need a driver if you want to go somewhere. The closest tourist attraction would be Tanah Lot. I would definitely stay here again for a getaway (not to explore Bali) - and so much fun to be able to stay with 6 other couples or a large family.

We had the pleasure of staying at Taman Ahimsa and holding our wedding within the grouds. The villa and staff were absolutely superb and we could not fault them in any way. The accomodation and grounds are stunning and the food was delicious. We will definately be returning!

I consider myself pretty well travelled, so it's rare that my breath is completely taken away, but Taman Ahimsa exceeded all expectations. It may be my favourite place on the planet, particularly because of the delightful staff led by Prahma.

I celebrated my 30th birthday here with eight friends and family and though we had made a number of plans to explore the area, aside from a sunset visit to Tanah Lot (great for holiday snaps) and two dinners out, we did not leave. Get the yoga teachers and masseuses to come to you and kick back by the pool, on the day beds, and bury yourself in the black sand on the beach.

The rooms themselves are truly palatial and the bathrooms are stunning. I could not recommend this highly enough for a grown family or a group of friends.

  Overall Rating: 9.10


The exact location of the villa is somewhat difficult for taxi drivers to locate especially if you arrive in the evening. The villa itself is extremely beautiful and a great retreat especially if you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of city life and looking for a place to unwind in tranquility. The view from the pool of the beach is breathtaking. The rooms are spacious with a modern yet rural feel. The staff are friendly and cater to your needs. The location is far from Kuta and Seminyak so you will need to use a driver if you want to do shopping but this place is a perfect stay as you can order in and enjoy the facilities the villa has to offer.

  Overall Rating: 9.50


Very happy with the experience in Taman Ahimsa. Staff were very professional and the villa has exceptional view. We will certainly come back.

An amazing stay at Villa Taman Ahimsa! The grounds are stunning, and the oceanfront views cannot be beat. Each night we feel asleep to the crashing waves. What an experience!

Great for larger groups, couples, and families!

This place is good and in a good quite location. The swimming pool is very big and the open layout nice. Service was very good and the staffs were very helpful. My mother and I love Balinese open style design, so The Ahimsa Villa is perfect. The Ahimsa provides a transfer service, which we used were really helps us to solve all the traveling problems.

Rooms

Bedroom: 7
Sleeping Capacity: 19
Location: Bali

Guests enter Taman Ahimsa through an intriguing two-storey pavilion, evocative of a boat.  This building is open-sided at ground level, facing the garden, with an elevated area furnished with antique daybeds and a lower section presenting a pair of built-in couches and an open-air timber deck with a frangipani tree growing through the floor.  An antique window panel frames a service hatch into a fully equipped kitchen, adjacent to which is a huge, 16-seater dining table.

A solid wood staircase leads up to two air-conditioned bedrooms, one of which is a master room complete with an adjoining lounge with comfortable rattan furnishings and a 37-inch TV/DVD player.  This is an ideal family area, reminiscent of a tree house, with stunning views from two balconies that are linked by a bridge.  Kids love it!  Both bedrooms are furnished with king beds, and have ensuite bathrooms fitted with terrazzo bathtubs, river rock washbasins, and walk-in rain showers.  There are five more air-conditioned bedrooms dotted throughout the garden; all have dressing areas with fitted wardrobes and a safe; Tibetan hand-painted mandala thankas (Buddhist banners) adorn the walls, and boldly coloured cushions and bed linens are fashioned in a handmade patchwork of fabrics and stitching.  Each garden bedroom is furnished with a king bed, and adjoined by a romantic, semi open-air bathroom with lots of recycled solid wood and stone features, including hollowed-out river rock tubs, washbasins, and rain showers bordered by small walled gardens.  The garden master bedroom is another boat-shaped structure, accessed via a wooden bridge over a pond and furnished with a huge (2.3m-wide) bed.  No bedroom is overlooked by the other buildings; each has a private terrace, bordered by short hedges and shrubs.

The 15m freeform swimming pool is flanked by an ironwood deck furnished with sun beds and umbrellas.  This area is a social hub; the large pool pavilion with raised timber floor and bar, glass-topped tables and bamboo chairs is ideal for casual al fresco dining, and doubles as a yoga studio.  Alongside the pool is a conical bale (gazebo) and in a nearby corner of the garden is a raised massage pavilion with antique wooden panelling.
