The villa is only 30 minute drive north of Central Seminyak, approximately a 45 minute drive to Bali’s international airport. The Ahimsa Garden Villa was built in traditional Balinese style which is evident with the use of bamboo, coconut, re-cycled iron wood, tamarind and teak woods. The traditional roof of “alang-alang” (grass thatch) also brings one back to the bygone days. The enchanting garden and ponds are with indigenous tropical flora and fauna with waste-water bio-systems that treat and re-cycle grey water for irrigation. There is on-site composting, re-cycling and waste management with a low to no chemical ozone system swimming pool. Any carbon footprint from this villa is off-set by sustainable tree planting too.
One enters the villa into a boat-like shaped bamboo façade living area with comfortable interior design of wooden furniture and connected to a large dining area that can easily seat 14 people. Here everyone can meet for meals prepared in the nearby enormous kitchen that is fully equipped with ample modern appliances and amenities. The gourmet cook is “extraordinaire” for her knowledge of healthy dishes of local origin or international cuisine that are prepared to excel any restaurant in Bali using organically grown and ayurvedic food. (No exaggeration too).
Ahimsa Garden Villa’s large grounds can support the separate bedroom structures guaranteeing privacy for its guests with 7 independent bedrooms (all with air-conditioning) of circular shapes (sacred chakra colors), indoor/outdoor bathrooms, wardrobe area and verandahs with each bedroom structure.

Throughout the remaining property are scattered ponds and walkways meandering to the other bedrooms structures, where one discovers spaces created for retreat with most of the bedrooms facing ocean views.
The second boat shaped structure harbors a master bedroom with the same style but even more spacious and direct sea views. The interiors are thoughtfully and tastefully designed with rattan pieces, comfortable sitting areas exuding a natural feeling that blends with the basic architectural design. Tibetan hand painted mandala thankas adorn the walls with themes of meditative peacefulness in harmony with the theme of Ahimsa Garden Villa. The swimming pool area is another meeting area for guests as it flanks directly to the beach and ocean.
