Canggu, Badung Regency
An exquisite testament to the rich culture and history of Bali, the Bendega Villas capture the refined beauty and connection with nature for which Indonesia is so prized. Composed of two magnificent homes, and a romantic boutique pavilion, Bendega is a magical setting to share a stay or special occasion. Resting close to a river, in a quiet neighbourhood, Bendega feels utterly secluded and yet you can walk to the beautiful Canggu beach in under ten minutes. This stretch of shore is a world-famous surfing beach and is also alive with numerous superb restaurants and bars. For boutique shopping and spas, the bustling Seminyak is just 20 minutes away and the airport is only 40 minutes from your door. Abundant with Balinese and Javanese artistry, style and antiquities, the villas are a love letter to Bali using a contemporary twist on the regal tradition in a design created with renowned architect Glenn Parker. The word 'Bendega' means 'fisherman' and pays tribute to the local heritage, whilst the two villas have Maori names: Nui, meaning grand, is the larger and Rato, meaning sunset, is smaller and has delectable views of its namesake. Both villas are looked after by a wonderful staff of 17, including exceptional chefs, and are connected to each other by gateways within their private, walled gardens. Bendega Nui is a magnificent mansion composed of rich wood floors, wide-open spaces and soaring ceilings encasing high-end furnishings and gorgeous antiques. The main living area is a gloriously grand space with walls of golden-hued sandstone and glass that opens completely to the fresh, fragrant air. Black teak sofas and tables provided a sumptuous seating area, their dramatic hues offset by traditional ikat textiles. Antique carved panels stand guard over an exquisite table, crafted from an ancient canoe, and the columns frame views across the rolling rice fields. The stately dining room boasts a huge 20-seat Merbau dining table and the games room features a fabulous pool table and a range of games all enclosed in shining walls of glass. There's a smart modern kitchen for fixing up a drink and SONOS sound system throughout to keep everyone entertained. The five delectable ensuite bedrooms are tranquil havens of style and comfort with each boasting their own balcony, terrace or private garden. The three master suites all have four-poster king beds, swathed in white drapery, resting on gorgeous floors of rich wood. The first master is in its own pavilion for extra privacy and has a large dressing area and lavish bathroom with a sunken double tub and grand shower area. The second master offers a super-sized tub overlooking the gardens, a dressing area, a daybed on the terrace and a personal study, fully-equipped, whilst the third master has a delightful ocean-view tub and balcony with a daybed. Two twin suites make charming dens for kids or can convert to kings. Bendega Rato is entered through spectacular, antique Javanese doors which lead you into the glorious, vaulted living area which looks out across the serene gardens. Teak furnishings, joyful pops of colour and an ornately carved antique ‘rice house’ on the wall provide an aura of supreme style. A media room is packed with state-of-the-art equipment, including TV and SONOS sound system. The three master suites feature sumptuous four-poster beds and gorgeous, capacious bathrooms. Best of all is the incredible rooftop sunset terrace where an enchanting balé frames panoramic views of those legendary skies. The one-bedroom pavilion is its own master suite, tucked away in perfect privacy within a walled garden, with its own balé, sundeck and a plunge pool. Surrounding these incredible retreats, lies a paradisiacal acre of luscious tropical gardens, teeming with koi carp ponds, fragrant flowers and magical spots in which to sit and bask in this beauty. Both the main villas have their own dazzling pools with a poolside balé as the perfect spot to make the most of outdoor living. Rato's balé rests above a koi pond, with a deeply comfy daybed and two delightful petrified wood stools, looking out across the lovely, grey slate-clad pool. Nui's space is grander but just as comfortable: overlooking the azure waters of the infinity pool, an open pavilion shades a grand ten-seat table, an antique bar and a handy kitchenette and changing room. Plush seating, in fabulous beachside colours, offers the ideal comfy nook to gaze out across the gardens. Altogether, these magical and magnificent villas capture the very best of Bali: art, culture, heritage and opulence with the promise of spectacular sunsets and sparkling stars.
