Bendega Villas comprises 2 contemporary styled luxuriously appointed villas and a romantic one-bedroom pavilion, which in combination sleep up to 18 guests.
The larger of the 2 villas, Bendega Nui, has 5 bedrooms whilst Bendega Rato has 3.
The one-bedroom pavilion, set in its own walled garden with a plunge pool, may only be booked in combination with one or both of the other villas, and suits couples or independent teens within a larger group looking for a little extra privacy.
Bendega Rato is a stunning, high-spec villa among the ricefields of Canggu minutes from the surf beach of Canggu and the famous Hotel Tugu.
For a 3-bedroom villa, the sheer amount of living space is surprising.
Everything is over-sized for optimum sociability and comfort, from the double-height living room with huge sofas and dining table that seats 12, to the stately bathtubs presiding over ricefield views.
There’s an air-conditioned media room, a poolside pavilion with comfortable seating and dining for 10, and a huge second-level terrace with rooftop bale for private sunbathing, sunset cocktails and star-gazing.
With so many large living spaces, this villa encourages social interaction while at the same time offering many private corners for those who want to slip away and claim one of the many daybeds and beanbags scattered around.
The stunning antiques, artefacts and textiles from across the Indonesian archipelago add a heritage patina to Bendega Rato, while state-of-the-art gadgets such as Sonos music system, 55-inch plasma TV, Apple TV and blu-ray DVD add 21st Century polish.
And animating this space is a 17-strong staff (shared with Bendega Nui) – among them 2 chefs who create magic with an extensive suggestion menu.
5 minutes beyond the villa are famed surfing beaches and Seminyak is only 20 minutes away by car.
