Villa Bendega Rato – Four Bedrooms Villa in Canggu Bali
Five-star service and the ultimate luxurious villa accommodation awaits at the sublime Villa Bendega Rato in Bali, just 600m from the beach, close to Canggu’s exciting nightlife, yet blissfully surrounded by rice fields in a semi-rural setting. Four-bedroom Villa Bendega Rato can be rented in conjunction with the enchanting Villa Bendega Nui, to create a nine-bedroom retreat, or as a three-bedroom villa, minus its romantic one-bedroom suite with its own plunge pool. An unforgettable venue for weddings and special events, this staffed villa has a personal pool and a chef who can whip up delicious fare all day long.

Villa Bendega Rato lies off a grassy lane among a scattering of other private villas and the luxuriant rice terraces that define the Balinese countryside. The sound of the waves can be heard from the villa’s immaculate, though modestly sized garden and a walk westwards along the beach (good for surfing and walking but currents make it unsuited for swimming) will bring you to a sea temple and the glorious museum-like Hotel Tugu. Down the road from the villa are some village homes and small grocery shops selling the basics, but for more sophisticated pleasures, guests can avail themselves of the villa’s car and driver and head into Seminyak.
Things to do
Villa Bendega Rato’s 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. Many of them live nearby and will be able to give an interesting insight into some of the fascinating aspects of Bali life.

Also at Echo Beach is Sticky Fingers, – a great place for coffee, smoothies and fresh juices.
