The Elegant Resorts & Villas Collection
Chillout luxury and legendary breaks for surf lovers
For decades Echo Beach near the coastal village of Canggu has been a mecca for surfers. Now the place has assumed a fresh mantle of dignified sophistication and luxury devotees have a compelling reason to seek out its charms. Close to the beach, down a narrow, bamboo-lined laneway, Ametis Villas is the Siren that lures travellers to a completely thrilling fate.
Surfers of a generation ago have returned to discover that their favourite haunt now sports a place that offers grown-up, butler-serviced living and gentle serenity.
The design of Ametis Villas guarantees seclusion but not isolation. Fourteen breezy and light-filled pavilions built at the edge of sensuous rice paddies are laden with comeliness: cool stone, glass and exposed timbers juxtaposed brilliantly with sumptuous fabrics, elegant décor and the soft glow of candle-lit lanterns. In each villa open-plan living areas are grouped at either end of a courtyard lap pool. A lounge merges into a gourmet kitchen at one end; a spa-style bathroom and seductive crisp linen bedroom at the other.
Add round-the-clock, discreet butler service, angst-busting spa treatments, in-villa dining and a relaxed restaurant cum bar, Eternal, and you have an irresistible bolt-hole for couples as well as groups of like-minded friends. Your butler is your chauffeur, housekeeper and general factotum. You’ll be devoted to him or her within a heartbeat of your arrival, especially when it comes to shopping trips to Seminyak that will see your luggage groaning with booty in a trice!
If you can tear yourself away from all the private and attentive splendour, cycle out to explore the district then come home to a romantic courtyard dinner or BBQ, all organized by your butler of course.
With the black sand sparkling like diamonds, sunsets on the beach are spectacular.
Otherwise, come sunset, just settle into a couch at Eternal for cocktails and canapés then enjoy a meal there.
Surrender is your smartest tactic.
