Apartment | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 6
Along a small road, a stone's throw from the beach in the popular rural district of Canggu lies Villa Bendega Rato; a sophisticated, luxurious and very modern Balinese home. Built in 2011 using natural materials and a palette of neutral tones – polished black stone floors, warm cream Indian sandstone walls, rich teak-wood finishes – this well proportioned villa feels far more spacious than your average three-bedroom property.
Facilities include a tempting, green-stone-lined 18m pool, a state-of-the-art Sonos sound system, Apple TV, blue-ray DVD, brick-built pizza oven, social pool pavilion with bar and outdoor dining area, and roof-garden sunset balé (Rato means sunset in Maori) with views across to the ornate silhouette of the nearby sea temple.
Impressive attention to detail makes Bendega Rato stand out from the crowd - from antique Javanese furniture to traditional textiles and deliciously perfumed toiletries in each of the huge ensuite bathrooms. A similar level of care and consideration comes across in the gentle hospitality shown by the polished team of staff, which includes two chefs, a driver (a car is included in the villa rate) and a knowledgeable villa manager.
This is a grown-up villa which will be appreciated by friends and families alike, and if a little extra space is required a private fourth bedroom pavilion with its own plunge pool can be added (additional charge) by sliding back a wide wooden panel at one end of the garden. To double your space, Bendega Rato can be rented in conjunction with neighbouring big sister, 4-bedroom Bendega Nui.

The Bali/Lesser Sunda Islands region
Bali is Indonesia's most popular tourist location and is considered one of Asia's premier tropical island destinations. Steeped in history and renowned for its artistic way of life, Bali is a peaceful contrast to some of the more frantic destinations Asia has to offer.
The inner peace and creative talents of the Balinese has attracted artists the world over fascinated by local dancers, silversmiths, wood carvers, potters and painters that seem to pervade throughout the island. The abundant verdant fields and surrounding sea have long supplied Bali with an easy surplus of food leaving time for life's more artistic past times. As a result everything in Bali has a creative and religious element centred around the local Banjar (residents association) – little, adorned temples are everywhere, doors are covered in intricate carvings, huge kites ward off evil spirits and colourful roadside ceremonies bring traffic to a standstill.
Bali is a popular destination principally from Australia and Asia but also from all over Europe. The island welcomes thousands of visitors each year to a relaxing lifestyle, stunning beaches, world class surf, vibrant villages, and spectacular scenery all with an exquisite tropical climate. Located approximately two hours' flying time from Singapore the island is serviced by an international airport at Denpasar with direct flights to and from many major cities in Asia, Europe and Australia and many more via Jakarta, Indonesia's capital.
The island offers an impressive range of leisure and lifestyle amenities including world-class golf courses, wonderful seascapes for surfing, diving and snorkelling as well as luxurious spas, chic boutiques, tropical forests, towering volcanoes and international cuisine.
Canggu is actually a small fishing village, but has become the collective name for a number of villages (including Berawa, Tegal Gundul, Tiyingtukul, Pererenan, Nelayan, Babakan ) which, despite lying within a developing area, can still be described as a sleepy coastal locale.
Here, amongst the rice fields which extend all the way down to the beach, you will find some of the most luxurious private residences on Bali. It is also an area that most surfers will know about, with reef swells that are larger than those you will find in Kuta further south. Swimming isn't advisable however as the rips can be dangerous. Nearby sporting facilities include the Canggu Club (of which many holiday villas in the area include guest membership), offering social and leisure amenities, including a state-of-the art gym, a 25m swimming pool and a tennis and squash centre.
Along the coast to the north of Canggu is the Nirwana Bali Golf Club which was designed by Greg Norman and is frequently voted the number one golf course in Asia. Next to this is Pura Tanah Lot; a sea temple perched high on a craggy wave-lashed rock and probably the most photographed sight in Bali. Sophisticated Seminyak, a few kilometres south of Canggu, lays claim to the highest concentration of independent fine-dining restaurants on the island, including Sarong, La Lucciola and Ku Dé Ta, together with a wide choice of chic cocktail bars, exciting nightclubs, lavish spas and elegant boutiques.
