Bendega Nui Villa
Surrounded by terraced rice fields and only five minutes’ walk from the Canggu beach, Villa Bendega Villas (meaning ‘fisherman’ in the local language) borders a small fishing village of the same name in the district of Canggu, southwest Bali. Despite its rural setting the villa is only 20 minutes’ drive from the restaurants and shops of cosmopolitan Seminyak, an hour from Bali’s cultural centre of Ubud, and 30 minutes from the international airport.
The villa’s design combines traditional Balinese architecture with clean modern lines, numerous indoor and outdoor spaces that allow groups to gather but also allow the privacy to get away from everyone and everything. Set in almost an acre of wonderful tropical gardens overlooking the rice fields, the villa is a short walk from the beach and a short drive to the chic restaurants and bars of Seminyak. The Bendega Villa offers plenty of private spaces to get away from it all and unwind. A reading balé, a gym and massage room with outdoor bath, a library with 50-inch plasma TV, a games room complete with pool table, and a sun deck hidden below the pool provide ample opportunities for relaxation.
Pool and Pool Pavilion:
Across the lawn, directly opposite the living room, the 11m x 11m stone-tiled infinity-edged swimming pool overlooks the rice fields. As well as being large enough for some serious swimming, the pool is perfectly positioned for sunset cocktails, which can be enjoyed from the wide stone ‘shelves’ set into the pool at just the right depth. To the right of the pool a large open-sided pavilion is home to a huge L-shaped daybed, upholstered in waterproof orange Sunbrella fabric and scattered with bright, sunny cushions; and you can roll straight into the pool from the matching beanbags at the edge of the pool deck.
The games room is surrounded by glass and can be opened up on three sides to the gardens if desired. A high, round table and bar stools plus two easy chairs provide seating for spectators. While the full-sized pool table is the centre of attention, there is a wide selection of games, for those less adept with the cue.
Gym and Massage Room
To the right of the entry courtyard, a stepping-stone pathway leads across the lawn to the gym and massage room, housed in its own private pavilion. This room is divided by a folding carved wood screen, with a massage bed on one side and an exercise bike and treadmill on the other. While they exercise, gym users have the option to watch TV or listen to music, which can be programmed specifically for this room. Although surrounded by glass on three sides, the gym and massage room is fitted with blinds which can be pulled down for privacy and the room can be fan-cooled or air conditioned.
Wine & Dine:
Menus are available at the villa for breakfast, lunch and dinner, but it is recommended that guests meet with the villa manager and chef at the start of their stay to discuss food likes and dislikes (or even food cravings), special dietary needs and meal schedules. An open dialogue will keep both chef and guests happy! Please discuss meals in advance (ideally 24 hours) to allow the chef the time he needs to prepare the provision. Daily breakfast is included in the villa rate.
