Hello December! Indeed, time goes by too fast! I still remember vividly how my last December like, having Christmas dinner with my all my loved ones back in Singapore and Jakarta. and this year, im spending most of my December in the island of God, Bali, Indonesia.
Someway somehow, Bali always excites me. It’s the only place that i would not mind to go back again and again, at least for now. Haha. So, Normally i will share about a must go place or must eat food in Bali, but for now, im gonna share with you one villa that captured my heart.
A villa / guest house located in the heart of Canggu has really captured my heart. Definitely not a fancy hotel with all the 5* service, but i love the serene ambiance homey kind of feeling that they offer. Tehila house has 10 different rooms that has been carefully thought and uniquely designed. The owner goal is to get her guests feels inspired when they are staying in Tehila house.
During my 3 days stay in Tehila, i got upgraded from the owner to room number 2. A more spacious room for me and my friend who just had her pre-wedding shots in Bali. I personally love this big rooms. i know it’s kinda too big for the two of us. But it feels super comfortable since we can get the queen bed all to ourselves. Love the hanger with the local-made ‘sarong’ as their background, the self-made white bed frame, all the little details that the owner put, the morning rays of lights , the fish pond view and the ‘back-to-nature’ bathroom design that makes your bathing experience a little bit different.
During this trip, I also travel with my high-school friend, Aquinaldo Adrian whom nowadays people known him as GD Indonesia. Haha. He got room number 5, which i have to admit that it is one of the nicest room that Tehila has. It has a very picturesque corner that will make you feels like you’re staying in Santorini. Haha. Okay, i might be too much on this. But i just love that blue-white corner to the bits, and love the green stone bed-frame. Guess nowadays, it’s hard for you to find a nice big stone as your bed-frame. Haha
Aside from the nice bed-rooms for us to sleep in, they have this few comfortable public space to hang-out with the other travellers. Like the Gazebo for example, i love how they built it in the middle of the beautiful fish pond. It is super relaxing, and the breeze can literally put you to sleep in that Gazebo.
Other than the Gazebo, the kitchen or the bar could be the perfect place for you to work in. When i spent my days in Tehila, i always woke up in the morning to open up my emails and do some works before i left. Literally the kind of space that i want if i can work remotely.
They also have some sofa to chill in their living room if you want some cooler air. But i prefer to stay in the bar tho. Haha.
And the last but not least, THE POOL! It may looks small from a far, but if you really swim in it. it can be pretty tiring too. *Duhhh. HAHAHA. Anyway they are very thoughtful to put the floaties, so i can take pretty picture with it. Yeayy.. hehe.. Owh, it can be very hot at daytime yet a perfect spot for you who wants to sunbath.
Overall, my stay in Tehila was perfect! Love the owner, Anita very much! Such a lovely person with big personalities! She is very helpful during my stay, shown us good and nice cafe (which i just knew that there’s a lot of well known cafe around that area. Haha. I even met Irfan Bachdim, Indonesian footballer in one of the cafe. Indeed a strategic place to stay in. Haha) , give us some insights on what to do in Bali as well, and can be a great listener to all your Bali stories. Haha. And last but not least, love the companion of their little friends over there. Puma and Boyboy who fill my stay in Tehila with more laughter. Hope you see you guys again! ❤
