Key Info
  • Swimming pool
  • Great for children of all ages
  • No pets allowed

Located on a picturesque stretch of coastline just south of Bali’s famous Tanah Lot temple, where rice terraces meet the sea, Maridadi conveys a sense of grandeur in the expansiveness of its grounds, whilst the living spaces and the five bedrooms retain an intimate calming charm. It’s easy to imagine – especially from the study adjoining the master suite and the upstairs snooker and TV lounge – that this villa, with its understated style, was intended by the owner to create a balance between work and family life. The buildings are designed in keeping with Bali style: local stone and hardwood-clad exteriors, polished wood and terrazzo floors, thatched roofs, outdoor bathrooms and comfortable covered terraces. These are all enhanced with an impressive collection of carefully chosen artwork, sculpture and furniture tastefully displayed throughout.

The lawn boasts a whopping 20 x 5m lap pool which is certainly big enough to wear out even the most energetic of children, who will also love the lumbung rice barn, a virtual tree house overlooking the gardens and ocean, guaranteed to provide hours of make-believe fun. Then there’s the tennis court, mountain bikes, walks on the beach and the nearby golf course or, if it’s pampering you desire, ask for the menu of spa and massage treatments, arranged on request.

The staff of fourteen are wonderfully attentive and well versed at making your stay more than enjoyable. The villa menu is as extensive as the grounds and the resident chef has had training overseas; your taste buds will definitely not go unsatisfied here (meals charged to guest account at cost). For a true Bali experience ask Yoga, the villa manager, to arrange for a gamelan and dance troupe from the local village to come and entertain you. It’s the real deal, not a tourist troupe, and is welcome income for the village community.

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.

Mengwi

A few kilometres to the north west of Canggu, a towering banyan—one of the 'elders' of the tree kingdom—heralds the turning to Seseh, a traditional beachside village 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 here, but you might just see a barong (a high-spirited, benevolent beast representing the power of good; danced by two men inside an ornate costume) 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. Although there are now many private rental villas in these three villages, they have seamlessly integrated without 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.

A little further up the coast is Tanah Lot, famous for its dramatic and venerated sea temple, which is perched on a craggy wave-lashed rock at the edge of the glistening black shoreline. It is probably the most photographed sight in Bali, especially in the late afternoon when its splendid profile is silhouetted against the setting sun. The Tanah Lot locale is also home to a number of private villas due to presence of the 18-hole, 72-par, championship-standard Nirwana Bali Golf Club, which is frequently voted the number one golf course in Asia. This is, however, still a far-flung area with few facilities other than the souvenir stalls and simple eateries within the temple grounds, and three international restaurants within Pan Pacific Nirwana Bali Resort.
