Relaxation is what Villa Canggu is all about. With the rugged beach only 150 metres away, the ocean breezes that whisper across the villa's terraces and gently permeate the living spaces will cool you on even the hottest of days.
The grand entrance to the villa is a wide flight of stone steps, leading up to a large living and dining room on the upper floor. This magnificent room is characterised by a polished wood floor under a soaring dark timber roof. At one end, sliding glass doors lead onto a veranda with a gorgeous ocean view. As soon as these doors are opened, the room is filled with cool sea breezes accompanied by the melodious sound of the waves, yet when the doors are closed, guests have the option of air-conditioned comfort. Down stone steps is Villa Canggu's stunning 19-metre swimming pool, complete with an adjoining children's pool fed by water spouts, set in a private walled garden dotted with sweet-scented frangipani trees and towering coconut palms.
The sea views are a treat, and Pantai Nelayan, which means 'Fisherman's Beach' presents a true insight into the working lives of Bali's fishing community. Every day, you can watch the fishermen setting out and returning to shore in their gaily painted jukung outriggers, each one fashioned from a single hollowed out tree trunk. The fisherman actually trade some of their catch on Nelayan Beach, which means you can expect some super-fresh seafood barbecues expertly prepared for you by the villa staff of six (provisions are purchased on guests account or paid for according to a priced menu). Located in a tiny traditional village, the villa is ideal for those who wish to escape from city life in peaceful tropical surroundings. You can walk along the beach for miles and watch the surfers riding the waves. Or maybe surfing is your forte, in which case you are in the perfect place. If you're feeling lazy, Villa Canggu offers numerous terraces, decks and verandas on which to relax, so you will always find a private spot for peace and quiet, including a unique chill-out balcony located at roof level. The view from here, of Bali's dramatic coastline stretching all the way down to Uluwatu, is eye boggling.

About this location
The Bali 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.
