Our Area


Villa Kropak is located high above the lush Sidemen Valley enclosed by a semi-circle of  deeply wooded mountains. The clear, clean waters of the Tukad Unda River flow through the valley and on either side  of the river rise high wooded mountains, their lower slopes a patchwork of green rice fields and terraces . The main village of Sidemen is  situated on the main road from the coast and is a thriving local hub. The towering presence of the volcanic peak of Gunung  Agung, about one hour from the village,  dominates the entire area and its slopes are the site of one of the most sacred of all of the temples in Bali, Pura Besakih, the Mother Temple.

At Villa Kropak in the heart of this unspoiled region of Bali, we want you to immerse yourself in the wonderful culture of the area with all its rich traditions, its colour and its spirituality. We will assist you on that journey as you relax at the villa, explore the local environment, the picturesque landscape and get to know the community of Sidemen where village life today with its agricultural focus,  is very much as it was in generations gone by.

Our superbly appointed four bedroom  villa, has been designed as a traditional two story Balinese structure, with an alang alang roof, lush tropical gardens and one of the best panoramic views in Bali. Dine alfresco on our dining terrace – all meals are supplemented with fruit and vegetables from our local organic garden – or sample one of the nearby restaurants on the Tabola Road. Guests can also access our glorious wet-edged pool with overlooking  vista  of rice terraces and mountainside.

Our welcoming staff are there to assist you in every way  and will also help you book personalised tours of the local attractions or you can simply opt for a stroll to explore the sights and sounds of Sidemen.
