Experience the warm hospitality, history and culture of Bali at this enchanting 2-bedroom villa. Secreted away in a walled garden planted with tropical fruit trees and featuring a generous, 20-metre swimming pool, Villa Belong Dua offers guests the luxuries of space, comfort and privacy. The charming bedroom pavilions and open-sided living spaces showcase prints of rural life, ancient maps and enchanting portraits. Facilities include WiFi, LCD TVs, DVD players and iPod with docking stations, and the team of experienced staff, includes a skilled chef. The villa is set in the traditional seaside village of Seseh, just 300 metres from the beach. Villa Belong Dua is located in the heart of Seseh, a traditional beachside village, heralded by a towering banyan tree and approached via an avenue of coconut palms. Seseh and the tiny neighbouring villages of Sogsogan and Cemagi still retain the customs and culture of old Bali. Here, you will see farmers in conical hats riding rusty old upright bicycles, as well as frequent, colourful processions to Seseh's large beachside temple. There are no international restaurants near Seseh, but you might just see a barong (a high-spirited, benevolent beast representing the power of good) dancing on the street. The good news, for folks who want to immerse themselves in the customs and culture of old Bali, is that the villagers encourage and welcome congenial visitors. There are now over 30 private rental villas in these three villages, all of which have seamlessly integrated without in any way detracting from the simplicity and charm of the location. This is an ideal destination for those who want to get lost in the beauty of the countryside, and for those who want to engage with the local people and gain privileged insights into the Balinese Hindu lifestyle.
