Thank you for your interest in our villas. We look forward to speaking with you!
Citakara Sari is not a regular villa, it is a private, beachfront holiday resort featuring 3 luxurious 2-bedrooms villas, together sharing a gigantic garden with a private stretch of white-sanded beach, located in Candidasa where you can still see and feel 'the real authentic Bali' with untouched lush green ricepaddies, swaying palm trees and traditional villages with mystical ceremonies and temples. A dream come true for large families looking for an amazingly beautiful holiday home or a fantastic wedding location with lots of communal spaces such as a private tennis court and a beachfront infinity pool as well as lots of privacy as each villa has it's own living pavilion.
Each villa has 2 luxurious bedroom suites boasting antique wooden king-size beds and private garden bathroom with relaxing rain-showers and most of them also feature hand-crafted bathtubs to rejuvenate.
The three luxury villa's share one large garden spread out over 6200 m2 of tropical land with green manicured grass lawns and high palm trees, stretching out all the way to the private white-sanded beach. There is also a stunning beach-front infinity pool of 17 x 7 meter, perfect for swimming laps while gazing at the infinite ocean ahead. Around the pool you can sunbathe on the deluxe loungers, read a book in the shade of a parasol or chill out in the alang-alang roofed gazebo. There is also a wooden seating area where you can enjoy cold drinks and fresh food from the BBQ while keeping an eye on the children running around or playing in the wading pool.
The 3 villas on the Citakara Estate embrace the authentic Indonesian architecture. The interior designs feature hand-carved teak furniture along with traditional arts and antiques. Each villa have a spacious living and dinning area along with a fully equipped kitchen and a media room. Another thing they share in common is the amazing view over the ocean. Villa Joglo is a beautiful 2-storey Javanese house of a 100 years old with hand-carved teak walls, encompassed by a sunny veranda where you can sit and enjoy the sea view . Adjoined to this villa there is a private spa with sauna facilities. Villa Yoga Bale embraces the tropical life with a stunning open-plan living pavilion underneath a soaring 7 high traditional alang-alang roof. The living area bathes in natural sun-light, creating and warm and serene ambiance all day long. Villa Saraswati is a beautiful traditional house, hand-crafted from antique Javanese Joglo's. The wooden walls with traditional carvings along with the beautiful teak furniture and stunning antique chandeliers are an amazing sight.
Attentive highly trained staff will be at your service 24/7 with butler service, daily housekeeping and security. Everything you wish can be arranged for you from yoga lessons on the beach to lovely day-trips, visiting local art villages.
Villa Citakara Sari is hidden away in Bali's breathtaking natural surroundings on the east side of the island, close to Candidasa. You will be enchanted by the lush green rice paddies, tropical greens and traditional villages where the Hindu Gods are honoured daily with beautiful offerings and ceremonies. The private beach is perfect for swimming and snorkelling. The cultural centre of Ubud is 37 km away.
We stayed here for just over three weeks, with six kids aging from 7 to 13. These villas are in an excellent location with one of the last remaining beaches out the front for you to enjoy. Even though the villa is located out of town, a price of a taxi is on IDR 30,000 one way. The staff at the villa show true Balinese hospitality. Lovely people, smiley, helpful and very informative. The food available within the villa was some of the best that we had. You can order in from local Warungs, which although are cheaper, sometimes the food is cold by the time it arrives. The property is big enough for the children to play cricket, soccer, rugby, tag and hide and seek. One of the maintenance boys, entertained us all by climbing a coconut tree with just a rope and his hands and feet to trim the tree of dead leaves and coconuts. The children loved watching his skills and he gave them all fresh coconuts after he was done. The snorkelling out the front was amazing, lots of fish and living coral to see. This was a once in a life time stay, and we would definitely recommend as a destination for families or friends getting together
Citakara was the venue for 3 generations of our family coming from all parts of the world for a rare get together. Stunning would be an inadequate description, the accommodation, the venue, the staff, the facilities could not be bettered. Two houses and large garden enabled everyone to have their space, however it was to the infinity pool we generally migrated. We were so contented finding it an effort to leave, so probably missed out on seeing other parts of Bali not that we cared! it was so beautiful, the houses, the gardens with lovely tall coconut palms. At night we just lay with the blinds open looking at the stars and hearing the waves breaking. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff, the evening meals were delicious. A 40th birthday was celebrated with a gala dinner and a private concert given by a large percussion band playing gamelans, gongs and drums together with 6 beautiful Balinese dancers. This was a holiday of a lifetime and will never be forgotten or surpassed
We stayed 6 nights in Citakara Sari. As we were 2 families, having the whole estate was perfect. One family sleeping in each of the houses yet comfortably sharing all the wonderful grounds and amenities. Children loved the space, the well kept lawn, playing football and were enormously active swimming in between some tennis on the course. As our kids are all over 7 and play well together and can swim, we parents were able to enjoy the beautiful views, massage in the relaxing spa in the main house (called in from a local spa) without the slightest of worry. My best holiday ever! Ayu and team were discreet yet always there if we needed any help. Smiling and friendly staff indeed! The place felt like home, so well thought of, so well appointed and beautiful. I hope we can come back one day! A hint for you who plan a trip to Bali: We stayed in a lux hotel in Seminyak after Citakara Sari, and regret that we were not able to stay in Citakara our whole stay.... Much much better!
From the moment you walk through the front gate you know you are experiencing something special. Citakari Sari is what all accommodation in Bali should be like, it’s that simple. The grounds are immaculate and maintained beautifully. The Yoga Bale in which we stayed was just magnificent and more than enough room for our family of four with spacious and well maintained rooms. Location is obviously a major factor when choosing accommodation and though the pictures we sighted were exactly what we were looking for, they will never do the villa justice. The location is simply breathtaking. Looking out from the infinity pool over the private beach and into the bay never failed to impress each morning. Basically, the service you receive can make or break a good holiday. The staff at the villa were simply amazing. When you needed them they were there, never obtrusive and just with the right level of attention to make the experience even more rewarding. A big shout out to Ayu and her crew as you guys are just as much of the experience as the villa’s. If it seems we are smitten by this portion of our holiday you are correct. This was our eighth trip to Bali and we have never stayed at a place quite like this. We will definitely be coming back next year and bringing friends. It’s simply that good.
We were an extended family of 9, 6 adults and 3 children under 3. The villas and grounds were perfect for us. A secure compound, plenty of room for children to run round ,swim and tire themselves. The staff were very accommodating /helpful of sometimes noisy and messy children, especially at meal times. Having said that the villas themselves are very tastefully furnished with local furniture and art, which we very much liked. The bathrooms are somethingelse. All modern conveniences are there, and when we required car seats, high chairs etc for the children, we were helped with these requests. Staff were helpful in arranging outings. Meals were available in house but we found a few Warungs that provided delicious food. And for convenience there was a restuarant next door.
We had a great stay at the Villa Citakara. We were a total of 5 families with kids and all had a great time. The villas are spacious and nicely decorated. The garden and pool are very nice. The staff was nice but not very proactive and food was OK (ordered from nearby restaurants) but not extraordinary. The sand area and beach are good. It's a very quiet place away from the crowds. A little gem. Highly recommended for a holiday with families. Thank you!
