Kaba Kaba Estate is one of Bali’s most exclusive villas – a spectacular and majestic eight-bedroom property leisurely spread over more than three acres. The villa is staffed by a large professional team, and designed for regal entertaining, multiple family gatherings, and romantic weddings.
The villa’s fabulous rural rice terrace setting, panoramic views, private multi-pavilion design, antiques-filled interiors, fascinating art collection and no-expense-spared facilities – including four pools, a tennis court, home theatre, games room, spa and gym – create an unmatched experience for up to 18 guests.
Built on royal land on the edge of Kaba Kaba village in Bali’s Tabanan regency, this stately villa will delight guests. From the Rajasthan palace elephants guarding the lotus courtyard to the gilded throne from a Burmese temple presiding over the dining pavilion, the stunning interiors are a treasure trove of skillfully curated antiques, curios and paintings that reveal the owners’ passion for Asian culture and contemporary art.
The elegant living areas and bedroom suites scattered among the multiple pavilions of this glorious estate enjoy majestic views; beyond manicured lawns dappled with palms, lotus ponds and sparkling swimming pools, an emerald sea of rice terraces rolls towards the Indian Ocean a few kilometres south, and northwards towards Bali’s dramatic volcanic peaks shimmering on the horizon. Closer to home, Kaba Kaba’s no-expenses-spared facilities command sovereign attention. The dining room features a six-metre-long table set for a feast created by the accomplished chef. Sink into the deeply cushioned chairs in the velvet-curtained home cinema. Work out in the gym before deservedly basking in a mandi lulur royal body treatment at the private spa. Serve an ace on the pro tennis court, score a goal at table football and take a bike ride through the rice fields. Naturally, these fabulous facilities are accompanied by impeccable service provided by the charming, professionally trained 23-strong staff.
Designed for regal entertaining, Kaba Kaba Estate is a sought-after venue for large family gatherings and special celebrations, and will capture the heart of many a bride and groom seeking a picture-perfect setting for their nuptials.
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 12m x 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.
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 fibreglass bulldogs guard the entrance to the living area. 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.

Kaba Kaba Estate lies on the edge of a historic rural village of the same name in the Tabanan regency of south-west Bali. With an outlook that re-affirms the regency’s epithet of ‘Bali’s rice bowl’, the villa gazes northwards and eastwards across a seemingly endless expanse of rice fields towards the majestic volcanic peaks of Mount Agung, Batur and Batukaru
