Pelangi Estate is the fabulous result of an ongoing love affair with Bali and Indonesia. Built by a traveler photographer, the Estate - set on an acre of landscaped, terraced rice fields and garden – encompasses the main house with four bedrooms, a stunning authentic Javanese joglo with three bedrooms and a single bedroom cottage called Bhutan. Pelangi or rainbow in Indonesian is so called as the walls are daubed with gentle colours of blushed mango, aquamarine, bruised cornflower blue topped off with rich wood tones in the floors and ceilings and bamboo rafters. Four-poster canopied beds add romance to the elegance of the three living spaces which can be rented separately, as each is independent, or as a whole.  Two salt-water swimming pools, a river are two of the unique features of this property as are the rice field views that extend far beyond the boundaries. Best put by one guest, “The gardens are spectacular-- a haven for butterflies, birds, and fireflies at night. Having a meal on any of the outside lanais, with the sound of the waterfalls and the fresh breeze is pure heaven. Riverside massages in the shade of the coconut palms or sunbathing by the pool in the private back yard will become favorite pastimes.” Privacy and peace, ideal for retreats, Pelangi Estate offers rice field wanderings and bird watching directly on the property and, within a short distance, the bustle of Ubud with its first-class restaurants, galleries, museums, temples and Balinese dances. Fully staffed with an English speaking knowledgeable driver, a stay at the estate could be your own version of Eat, Pray, Love.
