Quiet and safe, Villa Pushpapuri is situated close to the pretty village of Ketewel on Bali`s south-east coast. The streets of the village are lined with leafy trees; a small intersection is the venue of a fruit and vegetable market, and colourful temple ceremonies are a common sight. The Sanur-Kusumba by-pass, from Seminyak to Candidasa, has made this rural area accessible to the rest of the island and positions the villa within easy driving distance of Bali`s tourist attractions. Pushpapuri is just 45 minutes` drive from Bali`s international airport, 30 minutes from the cultural town of Ubud, ten minutes from Sukawati art and handicraft market, ten minutes from Sanur, and 30-45 minutes from the restaurants, shops and nightlife of Kuta and Seminyak. The diversity of the island presents everything from diving, cruising and trekking, to adventure sports and theme parks. Horse riding takes place at the neighbouring Saba stables, and three of the best golf courses in the world are located within easy reach. Ketewel village is the origin of the famous Legong Bededari Dance, while the nearby village of Sawa historically produced the finest Legong dancers on the island. The beach of Pabean was once a small port through which oriental traders brought their products; at low tide you can still see the structure of the old harbour, and a Chinese cemetery is located nearby. Balinese Hindu purification ceremonies are held beside the ocean at the sacred Pura Segara sea temple, and the adjacent reef is renowned for its world class surf breaks.
