Villa Bendega Nui – Five Bedrooms Villa in Canggu Bali
Villa Bendega Nui is Preside grandly over luxuriant rice terraces of Canggu, only minutes from a fabulous surf beach and an eclectic choice of restaurants, cafés and local warungs. With five generous bedroom suites spread between a series of pavilions set in tropical gardens of almost an acre, Villa Bendega Nui is a stunning villa for holidaying families and groups of friends who will appreciate abundant indoor and outdoor spaces and many entertainment options.
Acclaimed international architect Glenn Parker was consulted on villa’s design, which is a modern take on traditional Balinese architecture and spells luxury in every detail. Indonesian hardwood floors, Indian sandstone and Italian travertine provide canvas for stunning antiques, artefacts and textiles from across archipelago, such as glass-topped canoe serving as a statement buffet table that references villa’s name (‘bendega’ means fisherman in Balinese).
Everything is sized for sociability and comfort, from huge sofas in living room and dining table that seats 20, to alfresco river-rock bathtub adjoining fifth bedroom where two can soak with room to spare. Proportions of double-height living room find a match in generously sized bedroom suites – all with supremely comfortable beds, unique colour-coordinated decor and rice-field or private garden views.
Villa Bendega Nui extensive facilities offer plenty to keep guests as busy as they wish to be. In addition to large swimming pool, there’s a games room with pool table and a library with 50-inch TV. With an exceptional chef among polished 17-strong staff (shared with Villa Bendega Rato) and an extensive suggestion menu to choose from, dining in is an enticing option despite many excellent restaurants within walking distance.
If additional space is required, two more guests can be accommodated in considerable luxury in an optional master suite, which is linked to Villa Bendega Nui via a garden gateway, and has its own private plunge pool and bale. For even larger groups, neighbouring three-bedroom Villa Bendega Rato can be added too, giving a total of nine bedrooms.
Land Size: 3900 Sqm
Bendega is Balinese for fisherman, a fitting name for this villa, which sits in a sea of rice terraces on the perimeter of the small traditional fishing village of Nelayan in Bali’s popular Canggu district. A five-minute walk down a quiet road will bring you to the stunning black- sands of Pantai Nelayan (a wonderful beach for walking and surfing but not safe for swimming), and a short stroll along the sands from here is the Tugu Hotel, an atmospheric boutique hotel-museum stacked with antiques and a ‘must visit’ during your stay. Many interesting cafés, bars and restaurants are springing up throughout this part of Canggu – several within easy walking distance of the villa.
Things to do
Bendega Villas’ manager has a wealth of information about nearby places of interest and will help arrange transport and make any bookings required. Do also ask the staff about the local area.
