Bali is full of treasures and you never know where you gonna find one. Take Canggu, for instance: it’s packed with villas up to the brim yet it’s a challenge to find a place that would truly stand out. Of course, if you’re into contemporary, sleek and white villas you should probably stop reading now – because what we gonna show you is nothing like that.
Casa Biru or Indigo House is one very special place. First, it’s one of the first expat-owned houses in Canggu and in Bali in general, meaning it’s been here for the past 30 years. It’s absolute beachfront, sitting on the sort of secret Perancak beach in between busy siblings Berawa and Old Man’s, next to the important Pura Perancak. It’s so quiet here like no fame ever happened to Canggu – none at all! There are local kids on the beach playing football and eating bakso, and no tourists, like this beach is enchanted. The old joglo made of “eternal” wood is filled with antiques, and, funnily enough, almost each item features a price tag as all of them are a part of FolkArt Gallery collection (both places share the same owners). So if you fell in love with that miniature golden Buddha on your coffee table, you can totally take it home – just make sure you didn’t forget to pay 😉
The house is called Indigo for a reason: there are 50 shades of blue, from dark and stormy to minty aqua. They say colors have massive influence on us, and here you can feel it with your own skin – those blue hues make you immerse in tranquility. Cicadas sing in the drowsy garden. The in-house dog lazily follows your steps. The waves mutter. And the time stands still.
