Sanda  - Paradise in the Mountains of Bali 

The verandah

Sanda is our home in Bali.  It provides a tranquil retreat from the hectic bustle of South Bali, and ranks as one of the world’s special places. It nestles among terraced rice fields at the head of a great valley that sweeps down to the distant ocean from the high mountain rain forests.

Sanda lies among the rice fields just below the center of this picture

Remote from any village, Sanda is a cool and soothing sanctuary, enveloped by nature and the timeless pageant of rice cultivation.  Only bird song and the calls of amorous frogs rise above the ubiquitous sounds of  water.

 The house has three bedrooms, a living room, and a large covered verandah that provides exquisite views over the ever-changing landscape. 

The rangon or summerhouse

In the garden, which overflows with tropical exuberance, an elevated rangon above a pair of lily and lotus ponds catches the breeze and provides magnificent views in all directions, from the lofty mountain peaks all the way down to the to the Java Sea. 

Our housekeeper, Komang, who is a great cook, loves to prepare Balinese feasts, which are best eaten by candle-light when seated on mats listening to the myriad sounds of nature in the surrounding darkness.  

Just three miles away, in the village of Munduk, there is a good hotel and cultural center, which provides contact with the outside world when needed.  Sanda is used as a base by volunteers teaching in villages and schools nearby.
