You’ve been daydreaming of a tropical Bali getaway – less the crowds and beach parties and a little more indulgence and sunsets in your private pool - set entirely at your own speed. We welcome you to Villa Casa Doreena.
I called Villa Casa Doreena home for a month in November 2014. I was pleasantly surprised by the monthly rate the friendly owners offered me – and this level of openness and service continued for the tenure of my stay. It always felt like nothing was too big an ask, and that was really helpful whilst settling for a month-long stay in an area I was new to. The villa itself was gorgeous – had a really unique stamp on it with the beautiful collection of the owners home decor. I loved the swim up pool/lounge area – perfect spot for a sunset cocktail. The true highlight for me was the village of Tiying Tutul. The owners of all the local warungs became my Bali family. And it is such a beautifully peaceful place to stay. I would wake to the gentle song of Gamelan playing from a nearby temple, and the smell of incense from the villa’s morning blessing ceremony. I will definitely be back!
We absolutely loved our stay at Villa Casadoreena. The facilities are excellent with a large pool and great indoor and outdoor living space. The setting is beautifully quiet and has a gorgeous outlook over the rice paddies, especially at sunset. The villa is 3km from the beach and most cafes so you do need transport, but rental of motorbikes is easily and inexpensively arranged through the neighbour Wicky. The residential street is really welcoming and pretty, and with the local warung serving great, cheap meals at the end of the street and a mini mart 200m away open 24/7 we found it to be a perfect and authentic Bali experience. Canggu is just far enough away from Seminyak to offer a truly relaxed stay, but close enough to go to town if you really want to. We would definitely consider renting here again.
Ogoh-ogoh are statues built for the Ngrupuk parade, which takes place on the eve of Nyepi day in Bali, Indonesia.
Nyepi is a Balinese “Day of Silence” that is commemorated every Isakawarsa (Saka new year) according to the Balinese calendar (in 2015, it falls on March 21).
